Magnificat's Legal Grow Journal and Chill Zone

Hi All, welcome to this grow thread. I have some experience growing in hydro as well as running soil these past 2 years since we went legal.

Elextronics: 2 x 600 watt metal halide/HPS
Soil: Ocean Forest in 5 gallons.
Nutes: GH nutes full line with additives std line, not the organic. I follow the nute schedule for flora series expert recirculating and i get outstanding results.. Almost the same quality and potency as my hydro.

My nephew who runs the same strains as i do ran the fox farm line and was very disappointed with his results after using it for 2-3 grows and now runs my mixes... i will post them up in another post. this is just to get things going.. It's early, so pull up a chair and kick back with a few bowls... it could take us to the end of this year for the final results... (last run.. 15Z off 7 plants)..

The seeds are from a previous order from herbies as the USPS lost my last envelope 2 days after dropping it off at the Post office... So i am running some older seeds and will buy via bitcoin in the future and over time slowly get my 432 dollars back from the PO... :(

Here is my current batch.. some of these seeds are personal crosses i made using a 501st OG male...

critical kush (barneys)
cheesedog haze (coinneisur genetics)
desconocido kush (freebee herbies)
blue cheese (barneys)
holy grail kush (DNA)
euphoria (royal queen)

my crosses
casey jones rainbow haze x 501st OG male
zombie kush x x 501st OG male
criminal+ x x 501st OG male

they are 10 days after transplant from cups and 6packs. I still have to cull possible
males in my own crosses otherwise i might have gone straight into 5 gals... Hopefully most
show sex in the next week or so, otherwise i will have to transplant all 12.

Everything is going smooth. I gave them another feeding of about 120 ppms of my week 2 mix and I will be transplanting many of these into 5 gallon bags tomorrow.. here are some pics from tonight...

if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.. i know its early and the fun doesn't really happen until the last 3 weeks of flower but we will get there and celebrate the holidays at the same time...

Looks like all is running well and smooth. All the plants look healthy and happy and you got some nice strains to play with. Interested in how they all turn out, too.
How long you planning on vegging them?

Hi all, hope you didn't think i was leaving this thread alone. Just been busy but i took pictures of the transplant into 5 gallons... I also found 2 more males and had to swap those out... I will get new pics up very soon.

Here was transplant day... This was on the 17th... And they vegged for 11 days since...

So i plan to flower these starting on friday as they are getting pretty big. I tried tying down but they bounced up every day i did it, so i am leaving them alone. I found 2 males in the pictures shown above.

The Holy Grail Kush was one of my crosses i made with 501st OG and was a male, and its stem right now is about 3/8" thick. I will probably kill that male and use the original 501st OG pollen to hit the critical kush, cheesedog and blue cheese with to make some more seeds.

meanwhile I have 7 normal females and 1 more runty euphoria. I only got 1 seed out of an entire pack of those to pop so interesting to see what they are like.

critical kush
blue cheese
cheesedog haze
casey jones rainbow haze x 501st OG male
criminal+ x 501st OG male #1
criminal+ x 501st OG male #2
zombie kush x 501st OG male
euphoria

as i said, i will flip on friday.. i swapped out the MH bulbs with my HPS bulbs and will run that 24/7 until friday and go 12/12....

Cool kicking ass

Those plants are doing very well bro! It looks like they doubled in growth in 14 days. I hope you don't mind me asking, are you using acid to lower the pH, or just base nute? Also are you adding cal-mag to your water?

The Ph question is a very good question. A lot of people do not know that bottled water varies in Ph and most bottled water is actually not very healthy for you.

For instance, last years Poland Spring 1 gallon bottles i used all last year came in at a Ph of 6.4 already good for soil.

Acadia water comes in at a healthy 7.0-7.2 and has a lot of buffers in it.. Adding down lowers it but it bounces back.

Poland Springs has addressed this issue and now their 1gallon jugs come in at around 7.2-7.3. So i add 3 drops of Ph down acid to get them down to around 6.4. I hate adding anything to my waters cause i used to run hydro years ago and i stepped on a bottle of Ph UP the stronger base and it sprayed all over my legs and on a carpet which had to be pulled and ever since then i like to avoid all Ph up/Ph down if possible. Unfort. now i have to run 3 drops per bottle again.

As for the Cal-Mag, I only used a few drops per gallon in the first mix but none after that. It contains mostly nitrogen so shouldn't really be used in flower. I think its 2-0-0 on the bottle.

As for my nute schedule.. its the GH expert recirc schedule. And i just quantized it for spoons. The size of spoon doesn't matter and when i make up the mixes in a gallon jug I will sometimes go 2X or 3X whatever the spoon amounts call for...

Here they are at day 9 of flower. Nothing crazy going on, I prepared a week 5 mix which consists of 3-4-1-2-2-1-.4 See the schedule I posted above. I need to get more jugs of water tomorrow morning and will start feeding these. I plan to give them around 220-240 ppms.

Yea, I know I run things very low.. If things work out I plan to send a sample of the critical kush into a local lab for testing. We shall see what we shall see.


Here is a picture with HPS on...
