great diary mate..i really enjoyed reading it

when you said regarding dj short and scrog net: I think he meant that the string of a net should be tight, but also with smooth edges so it doesn't hurt when stretching..

anyway, you think 3 and 5-gallon pots makes a real difference in plant size? also, do you think it would be easier manageable under the net if you topped the plants?

cheers mate

Thank you for reading my journal

Hello djibra!

I'm humbled another person read this journal.

Sometimes you learn more from a loss than a win.
Hopefully you learned something at my expense!

Regarding the following:

when you said regarding dj short and scrog net: I think he meant that the string of a net should be tight, but also with smooth edges so it doesn't hurt when stretching..

I was just being an idiot.

I never read any of DJ Short's books...

I certainly don't think he said pink string helps triple the yield of a scrog.

If you are interested in his work, you should check him out on the pot cast.

I loved listening to his interview.

anyway, you think 3 and 5-gallon pots makes a real difference in plant size? also, do you think it would be easier manageable under the net if you topped the plants?

I think I made a huge mistake vegging for 50 days in 5 gallon pots.

Not that there's anything wrong with long veg times but the plants got too tall.

They got way too close to the lights causing huge issues.

I vegged for 50 days and had to flower them on 850 (425 per light) watts instead of (800 per light) 1600 watts total.

If I would have kept them short...

1. I could have kept them in three gallon pots.
2. Vegged for 3 weeks less
3. Flowered under 1600 watts.

Every situation is different...

Don't be an idiot like me...

Rule 1: get a lux meter before you start anything.

Those Gavita's are powerful.

To answer your question though:

No, I don't think the pot size makes that big of a difference.

A friend on IG showed his legal commercial garden.

Huge killer trees in 3 gallon pots.

His nugs were easily as frosty as mine...

Regarding the scrog...

I've never topped a plant and probably never will.

There's something about that main cola that just gets me excited!

I think the main issue with the scrog was:

1. It was too big. I couldn't walk around my garden. Huge issue!

2. It was setup too late. I couldn't lower the scrog because I put the plants in the 5 gallon containers which made them a foot taller. Didn't see that issue coming. FML.

I don't think my journal should be used as a blueprint for anyone else.

I think the only things you should take away from it are:

1. Genetics are important.
2. Link to soil recipe. (BlazeOneUp)
3. Lux Meter.
4. Clean Water.
5. Dragon Fly Earth Medicine fertilizer.
6. Cleanliness.

I put cleanliness last because it should have been 100x cleaner.

Wishing you the best.

One last time...

This will be the last grow for a long time...

Hopefully this one will be a little more enjoyable!

Starting with eleven strains this time:

Duke Diamond / Dominion Seed - Mom Gooey x Cinderella 99
Duke Diamond / Dominion Seed - Purple Dahlia

Gooeybreeder / Cannaexotics - Old Mexican x Mom Gooey
Gooeybreeder / Cannaexotics - Kona Sunset
Gooeybreeder / Cannaexotics - Midnight Snow x LED Gooey
Gooeybreeder / Cannaexotics - (Dark Desire x SO) x (DDxPGxPM)

Inhouse Genetics - Jelly Breath s1
Inhouse Genetics - Jelly Sickle (Jelly Breath x Purple Punch)
Inhouse Genetics - Jelly Sorbet (Jelly Breath x Dolato)
Inhouse Genetics - Platinum Scout v2 (Forum cut GSC x Platinum)

Thug Pug - Meatbreath (Meatloaf x Mendobreath)

Going to push out purple one more time...

I think people will be tired of looking at them after this round.

Got the Roadkill Skunk and Diesel from Duke.
Just don't feel safe using those stinkers this round...

I have a few ounces left to cleanup from last round and that's it!

I leave very little leaf on my buds.
It has to be covered in crystals...
Even then a lot of it gets cut off.

Anyhoo, below is the last of the jars and my current seedbank.

I will not be using the Ethos genetics seeds.
I can't stand that guy.

Saw one video of him at a Q&A session with DJ Short.
DJ would get asked a question and he would answer it...

Then he's like...
I bought a house using your genetics DJ - Thank you.
I was like... WTF

thanks for such detailed answer mate i really appreciate it

anyway ill try to reply as much as i can so both can understand me lol

yeah you should definitely flower under 1600 if you can but i understand why you had to go lower wattage..my friend has a similar setup as me but double the size so that means one 600w extra..and even on 4x4 footprint you can see the difference between mine and his plants and im in 3 gal hes in 5gal ..so next time try to keep em short like you said and rock em fine and i will have to try bigger pots just to feel the difference although i don't want to disagree with you when you say it doesn't have any difference..but i just have to prove it to my self personally

im planning to use a net next run but i also don't like the fact I can't get around my plants and touch and see all of them without breaking my back hahah

and now when you said what you think could have done better it makes sense and anyone who has read the whole diary can take something useful like me for example

all the luck mate

cheers

Nothing wrong with disagreeing...

I'm just saying my buddy on IG didn't think it made a difference.

I hope 5 gallon pots triples your yield.
Stay safe my friend!

Roar!!!!!

First time seeing the plants yesterday...

Some are on Day 16 (from being put in soil).
Some are on Day 9.

Regardless, my partner has been taking care of them.

All I asked him to do was one simple thing...
Water the plants with the correct PH.
He succeeded.

I've purposely been staying away from them so he can learn some things on his own.

Hopefully there will be a point in time when he wants to do it by himself.

Plants look a little rough.
They need transplanted.
This will happen Thursday.

Back to 3 gallon pots we go!

I will be setting up the intake.
Mixing the soil and transplanting them and...
Roaring cause that's what the fuck I do.

Anyone who has never grown before, be sure to watch.
You will see many mistakes in the next 60 days.

You will also learn how to produce some crystally ass buds!

Can't wait to do this one last time...
Enjoy the shit show...

ROAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!

PS - Starting plants under 425 watts isn't optimal. However, I was out of town for work and too busy biting on my wife's neck.

ROAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
