    Heath Robinson's Black Rose (no defined grow, but generally hydro)

    Hi IC.

    This is my first posted grow! This is more for me to keep a record of what I am doing and put it into some sort of order. Any comments / feedback etc are most welcome.

    I have popped a Black Rose seed which I was fortunate enough to get from Graham (received 3 reg purple wreck for free too). I got a pack of 11 regular seeds, but I'm a bit funny about popping lots of seeds at the same time and to be honest, I only need to run one at a time. The only time I ever did was when I had shed loads of bagseed. This was when I was a teenager and expected great things from growing plants on my window sill! Since then I have only pulled off one grow of Pineapple Express in a DR100 tent under a 400W MH for veg then a 600W HPS for flower. That didn't go too badly so I have grown out a clone of that.



    The seed popped after only about 12hrs in a shot glass of tap water.



    After 24hrs I transferred it to damp kitchen towel on a small plate. Unfortunately I let it dry out and the root shriveled a bit and went brown. I thought that was it, but I persevered and despite it looking very sad, even when I popped it into a jiffy pellet, it sprouted and now has the first healthy sets of leaves.



    This grow is very much undefined. Currently I am waiting for the PE clone to finish and a pure power plant (both in DR100 tents and due to finish in 2-3 weeks). Once these are done the room will have plywood mounted to the internal walls , which will be insulated. I think the black rose will go into one of the DR100 tents to be kept as a mother. Clones will be taken and if I can get it together I will be running a mini vert a la Heath Robinson. While I realise this is unoriginal, I just want to try it out. I would have gone the whole hog and copied his flooded vert but I honestly don't have the skills to attempt anything that involved. I think it's going to be tough going feeding the mini vert with clones as it is. I also want to try a tree grow of the black rose. So like I said, a little undefine, but we'll see how it goes. Either way, I'm excited about the black rose. I've not seen a decent purple strain for years from any of the local market traders round these parts.

      Thank you watts. Yes I do, it's from Graham. Heath has mentioned him personally before.

          Hey there, If I were you, I would edit your posts mentioning where you got the seeds. Although we are permitted to discuss and show any seeds/plants/strains at all now, linking and directing people to other vendors is still not permitted. It would be a shame if your thread got binned, as I would like to see this grow.

                      Thanks for noticing and for the heads up HG. Done!

                      I just love the look of the buds. We'll see how the yield turns out, but I think Heath was looking to develop a good purple/good yielder when he came up with the Black Rose. Time will tell!

                      Thanks SSH. I hope my efforts are worth following! You are so right, my inspiration for giving it a go!

                      Hi petemoss. Worth a try hey! They do look amazing from the pics I've seen of Heaths. Thanks for the pics you posted up. I have searched around a little for images but seems not many have posted up their grows of this.

                      Hey megayields! I've read (nearly) all of your vert paradise thread, which took a long time! (I'm a very slow reader, I used to hate it in school when we had to read in class because EVERYONE had always finished before me. In fact I skived a class once and sat in the toilets just so I didn't have to read out loud!). I look forward to seeing what you get out of her too.

                      Thank you all for dropping in!

                        Took a few pics yesterday eve....







                        This weekend I'll have it planted up in a water farm (smaller of the two farms). It'll remain under the CFL's for now.

                          Missed this pic out, breaking the surface....



                          Anyway, I cleaned up one of my water farms at the weekend and drilled a few more holes in the base, this time using an 8mm bit. Last time I used a 10mm (didn't have the 8mm bit then) and I think these were a little too big. The hydroton says it's 8-16mm I believe, but there sure are some smaller bits in there!





                          And then the Black Rose was put into position....





                          I put in a very weak solution of canna veg nutes (about 0.4/0.5 ec, with the tap water being about 0.2/0.3 I think) and pH of 5.6. As of last night she was looking fine under 2 x 45watt 6400k cfl lamps.

                            Why do people post photoshopped purple pictures?

                              If you're referring to megayields Black Rose pics, I believe they were taken from Heath Robinson's grow from several years ago. I'd be very surprised if he'd be bothered or feel the need to photoshop them :-)
