so i guess i’ll start with the bag seed. looks like a typical tropical sativa with something mixed in along the way. nothing special.
I took 4 cuttings from a friends plant, all 4 rooted but I killed one when i fell asleep with the dome off while i was hardening them up.
well this shit got out of control fast, treated with a diluted seaweed and neem organic fertilizer spray, homemade by local farmers. and also a diluted rubbing alcohol spray.
other than the occasional leaf miner haven’t had much pest issues since.
i’ve also got some Nuke Em to help with the pest issues
so now lets just skip to week 8-9…they’re getting close to harvest
these plants are my first auto grow ever, when i used to grow lowryder was the only ruderalis strain around so its interesting to see how prevalent autos have become
these 2 plants to me are too small tho, not sure i’d do it again now that i have my garden pumping.
but holy fuck shits bat man, this smells sooooooo good, I went and planted 2 Bubblelicious because it has skunk lineage also.
Oh I hate those fucking sap suckers I notice those from a mile away I have a homemade soap solution you ought to check out used it last year puts them down fast! Welcome to OG buddy good to have ya in here plants look beautiful!
week 6 i transplanted into bigger pots, my younger zkittlez is not growing as nicely as the other so i’ve just relegated it to the back burner.
plants are in the sun by day and tent by night. this is them with the swiss cheese auto’s
week 7 and i’m thinking i should have transplanted a long time ago, they are exploding with growth, zkittlez is taking the edge on the AK48 and i’m ignoring the runt(for now) plants are the ones to the front of the pic(3 bagseed from earlier post in the back)
using a plastic cake cover and a rubbermaid container…works perfect
right about this time i’ve remembered i have some monster pots, look like around 30 and 40 gallons maybe more.
so heres my mix. took a bale of pro mix, a bale of coco chips, 2 huge bags of horse manure, a gallon of sharp sand, few tablespoons of root magic mycorrhizae and a few table spoons of cal/mag powder because I noticed some magnesium deficiency in the zkittlez when i wasn’t feeding cal/mag
Zkittlez week 9, boths plants are just exploding with growth, zkittlez is definitely taking the edge tho
my transplant process here is to try and stress the plant as little as possible.
first sprinkled even more mycorrhizae where the transplant will be going.
then cut the bottom of the pot out and put it in place, then sliced up the side of the pot, built up soil around it then slid it out.
i really didn’t even want to think about trying to lift these plants out of a 5 gallon pot, it would have been a disaster, girlfriend isn’t too happy about the destruction of her pots tho.
zkittlez and AK48 transplanted and starting flower at week 9/10
i have a wood dowel in there that i used for support and she’s at the exact height of it, i’ve been using it to mark growth rates.
with the zkittlez outpacing the ak i decided to put her in the larger of the pots
and there she goes. zkittles
the black marks on the wood dowel i took every night for the last few nights of veg so u can see what she grew in a day, this is like 3 days into flower and in her new pots.
Ak is growing but not at this rate.
this zkittlez is a beast, not only is it growing like crazy its clones are hardy.
all survived, i lost a couple ak becuase i was misting too much and they got a black mould algea thing on the crown, and when time came to start easing them out of the dome the ak needs an extra couple days, the zkittlez where ready to go out the box.
limes i killed by accident pulling them out the cube to see if they had roots, it had just started to root and i think i shocked it and stopped that, so i’m waiting on my tree to give new growth to try that experiment again.
i’m gonna click post here and edit or add a new post so i don’t loose all this shit somehow. have 4-5 weeks of flowering to update still
and inside i’m already getting ready for round 3, i’ve got 2 bubblelicious feminized in coco, they are getting very bushy, 1 critical regular seedling(if its male i’m gonna keep for pollen) and a zkittlez clone from my big one
i am loving the coco, the plants are growing so fast and bushy in it.
ordered an irrigation system that i’ll be building up over the next week or 2 as well as some clear roof sheeting so i can build a sorta greenhouse to protect from the rains that will be starting soon
been a busy week.
I built a clear shed over my plants to keep off the rain. buds were starting to fall over with the wieght from all the water and was getting worried about mould as these plants are getting fatttt.
