1000W grow (SWT #3 and Copenhagen Kush)

Some time ago I made the flower room a little bigger and added a 400W in addition to the 600W I had in there.
This has worked out pretty well and now I'm at day 18 on a promising grow that I would love to share with you. Method is still soil and in fact I'm going more "slack" than ever!
I've switched from Biobizz grow + bloom to a mixture of Hornum nutrients (A local danish tomato fertilizer that can be found in every store) and Biobizz bloom. I might even skip the bloom too and just add some PK 13/14 - or perhaps just add some phosphate rock to the soil.
Also the soil is a mixture of fresh bought soil, used soil (from growing potatoes in pots outside) and free compost (from the local recycling station).
The reason why I'm not afraid of this is that I already caught spidermites earlier this year and it's been a blessing because now I don't have to worry about moving plants in or taking cuttings from my guerilla spots. I did manage to bring in a single caterpillar though that seemed to like munching on the leaves and some of the plants I have brought in have leaf miners. But I don't think any of these can establish a serious population in an indoor setting - and I've also had the pleasure of seeing a couple of centipedes.

Anyway - last day was a horrible shock because I came home to find 5-10 cm water in my entire basement because of rains.
The water was just touching the underside of my ballasts but fortunately they weren't on. Then I decided to move them to a higher position and wait one day before I turned them on again
The next day I was fearing that they would blow up when I turned on the electric but they went on with no problems. This pic should illustrate how stupid I was - the ballasts were simply placed on tiles resting on a couple of wooded beams...


On to the grow - first 9 swt#3 plants in 12 l buckets under the 400W lamp. I'm quite satisfied with these


20 Copenhagen Kush under the 600W lamp (along with a row of small autos to the right)
These are very columnar plants with a healthy stretch except perhaps for a couple of runts. It's still too early to talk about resin but all of them seem to be preparing themselves for some nice bud-building. I vegged these for around a month before I put them in flower - made some mistakes and forgot to water a couple of times when vegging but these are very forgiving plants. The runts are probably my own fault.

Looks dangerous man.. take care

Thanks for sharing!

Yeah I know - I would prefer to hang them on the wall but the 600W ballast is simply so heavy that I wouldn't trust a couple of screws to hold it securely.

Would the 600w still be too heavy if you were to secure it into a stud, or place a board anchored to the stud on the wall and then screw the ballast into that?

The wall is a brick wall so I'm sure with good anchoring for the screws a board should be able to do the trick - got one already and also might have the right screws around.

Thanks - they're a little less healthy looking now because the thrips and spider mites are taking their toll on the older leaves.
They're budding up very well though - I could get used to growing fewer plants in larger containers when they respond to topping like swt does.
The Copenhagen Kush is a heavy stretcher - up to 1m now from 25cm plants when I put them in flower. All are spearshaped with little branching - som even have their buds close to the stem from top to bottom. The buds themselves are elongating nicely so I'm sure this has yield potential.

Very nice. When will you harvest. How tall are the 9 under the 400? Other then the "autos" and few "runts" they all look very similar. You must be happy so far.

They're both on day 29 now I think.
The swt normally comes down around day 52-56 so a little less than a month for her.
They're 50-60 cm tall now and I wouldn't be surprised to harvest 40 grams from each. With 9 12 liter pots like that under the 400W (borrowing a little light from the 600W...) this should work out pretty well.



20 Copenhagen Kush under the 600W to the right.
These like to grow and the early resin seems to be sweet lemony with a hint of strawberry here and there. It seems to me though that it might be changing to more mature and rough flavors as the plants grow older...
