    Blue Vixen test grow

    So I am finally getting a thread started for my test grow of Blue Vixen from House of Loves, sorry for the delay. It is a Sour Dog x Blue Dream cross and is mostly sativa. I germed 10 seeds on 5/28 and all 10 popped. I picked what I thought were the best six and put them into my new veg system. The plants struggled a bit as my new veg setup needs to be dialed in. I was only running one air stone per side and I don't think it was enough so I added another one and switched to a four port air pump. It also does not have a chiller and runs around 76 degrees so I will be changing the res out once a week. So the plants are starting to come around and I plan to put them into my new flower setup in about a week.







    So most of my time has been going into getting my flower room redesigned so I can go perpetual and I have one of the pods complete except for hanging the top light.







    All done

                Thank you everyone for the support, it is very much appreciated.

                I will be running a 400 watt CMH bulb on the bottom and I just bought a shiny new Eye Hortilux 1000 watt HPS to be the eye that overlooks all. I just need to get my chicken wire cage setup and all will be good to go. I just have to figure out how it is going to be installed. Details, details.

                  So the server errored out and then double posted on me so I might as well us this space to give some detail. I am running 6 five gallon buckets with a 25 gallon tub for a res. Upgraded to a 1500 GPH pump because the 1000 I was using did not have enough push after the four foot rise to the chiller to keep the feed lines full. I have four 3/4" drains per bucket and a 1/2" feed that is reduced to 1/4" at each bucket. The upper and lower drains each have a return to the res. I do not have screens on the upper drains yet because I need to cut them down so they will fit with the net pots in the buckets.

                  I will be using 1400 watts this round and I plan to prune and train heavily and go for fewer but denser buds. I will be sticking with the Keep it Simple Stoner method of nutes and be using just powdered MaxiBloom. I will also be using SilicaBlast but I have dropped using SM-90 for the time being. I may try using a bloom booster as well but I am such a newb that I am trying to keep it as simple as possible.

                        Major Props Major! That is one slick set up. I think you'll push the blue vixen to the max in your bucket system. Respect, as always!

                        Seed Buyers Beware! Don't waste your money on hype. If you have to buy multiple seed packs to find that "keeper", you're getting ripped off. Every female in a pack of seeds should be a keeper! We've been led to believe that lots of variation in a cross is a good thing, because some vendors would rather you buy several packs of their gear, instead of them actually doing the selections to fix that nag champa or golden clit trait themselves. For hobby growers, pheno hunting is fun. But mono-croppers who grow to pay the bills prefer a consistent product that regularly delivers the desired trait package.

                          Kick ass system, Major.

                          seem like there are more water flow then the last?

                          cant wait to see how they're going to turn out


                          cheers,

                              Thanks everyone I really do appreciate it, I spent a lot of time getting this setup. Red there may be too much water flow. I just went in to check on it and the res was empty because the pump blew the hose off last night and pumped 40 gallons of water onto the floor. Luckily I had drilled a few drain holes in the floor so all the water just went under the house.
