Yeah, he's probably whining about going to Tosche Station to get some power inverters.

Yes they are medicated. Notice the reference to Green Dragon, it's an alcohol tincture. I used the Green Dragon I made with rosin in this post.

The autoflower beans have cracked. I put them in the peat pucks and on a seedling mat. I think that I will run these in my storage cabinet since that will be empty this weekend. Clearly nothing happened to my order in transit.


The Bubba Kush S1 is doing great. She's already at five nodes and I was faced with two choices, either lower the pot or top her. So she was topped to the third node. I just put the top in water for tonight, I will try to clone tomorrow.


She sure loves to branch out. That bottom node is actually big enough to clone. Tomorrow is clone day, so I will try to clone the top and both those bottom nodes. I will give her a few days to recover before moving on to the next steps after that.


I ordered a new pH pen. I use the cheap ones that only last about 6-moths, but it was cheaper than just buying the calibration solution, and it comes with it to boot. So my old pen was about 0.5 too high, so I calibrated it and put it away as a spare. The new one was dead nuts on, $11 well spent.

The yogurt challenge is on! These little guys are a total mystery. I have been having issues getting some seeds to germinate so I grabbed a few from my mixed seed stash. These could be anything from commercial Mexican to an S1 found from the dispensary. I tried to grab the four biggest seeds that all looked similar. These were simply dropped into the yogurt cups and watered in. Since these are total mystery, they will simply be referred to by their flavors, Peach, Strawberry, Blueberry, and Cherry.


The capillary mat is working pretty good except one cup, Blueberry, was getting dry. I changed the "res" and watered the dry cup. I'm trying synthetic nutrients for these guys. A sort of "hydro" setup. I have very little experience as I prefer to use organic based nutrients. So they got a nice light mix of Superthrive, Shultz 10-15-10, and SM-90. I then adjusted the pH to about 5.8. They are getting a spot around the 150W CMH bulb. They will only get a few weeks veg time until the screen is nice and full, then they will get flipped with the rest of the cab.

The Bubba Kush S1 was topped at the third node and the branches at the first node were removed. That was three days ago and she is already fully recovered.


Today I removed the branches at the second node as well as the foliage. The two main branches were tied down.


Look at this, she has already given me five cuts. Let's see how many I can get to root.


Next up are the Holy Grail 69 girls. They were all trained back to the screen with garden wire. These girls don't stretch much at all, so they will need to completely fill the screen before being flipped.


Finally I'll update the yogurt cups. They got a bit of stretch on them. Blueberry is still drying out faster. Looks like more perlite in that one for some reason. Correction: There is no Cherry, it's Vanilla.

Ha ha there is nothing Low Stress about that Training! Topping, pruning, and tying. But thanks, this is the best attempt at mainlining I have had.

This week's harvest looks pretty good to me. We have from left to right, Delicious Candy, THC Juanita, and Tahoe OG. I think Juanita came out perfect. I wish I would have recorded her height.

Since I just harvested a couple good sized plants in 5 gallon smart pots, I had quite a few roots to play with. I still have root oil that I made to use for topical recipes, so I decided I would ferment them and use it as a root stimulant. I cleaned most of the soil out of the main root balls, but didn't rinse them as the microbes are useful. I weighed them at about 90 grams, and then shoved them into the growler. Next, I added to that 45 ml of molasses and just enough water to cover the roots. Finally I added 1 ml of lactobacillus culture and put the air lock on. This will ferment for a week or two, then the liquid will be strained and used as a soil drench at about 1 tbsp per gallon. I currently use a homemade fish hydrolysate, cannabis leaf FPE, and lactobacillus culture for veg. I plan to make a bloom recipe with banana, squash, and papaya to try out on the screens. You can learn more about making your own fertilizers at the unconventional farmer dot com.


The Bubba Kush S1 has recovered nicely from her last round of torture. After this picture, I removed the two large bottom fan leaves and removed the wire holding the main branches down. This should encourage vertical growth. In a day or two, I will top both sides for four main growth tips and again give a couple of days for her to recover. So far, I believe this technique has added about three or four days of veg. It's not too bad if it works out, also the roots get a chance to really grow out with a longer veg. More roots, more fruits


After a bit of struggling, it seems like the Seedsman Lowryder competition is a go! I've had a hard time germinating some seeds for the competition, but sometimes the simplest solution is the best. I simply put them into the peat puck and one is up, the other looks like it may come up in a day or two. The other varieties are also auto flowering from the same order. I wanted to make sure nothing was wrong with the order, so tested germinating some other seeds. A larger grow area will be free in a couple of days, so I am going to run 6-8 of the ones that come up in 2 gallon smart pots in my storage cabinet. Though there will be other varieties in there, we will be focusing on the Lowryder.


Next, a one week update on the yogurt cup challenge. Strawberry was horizontal when I checked up on them, so I propped them up with some bamboo skewers and twisty ties.



I am finally getting up to speed with my Arduino board. I got my starter kit and quickly worked my way through the dozen or so examples. The board is programmed in C/C++ so there was no issue learning the language or syntax. With the parts I had, basically a few resistors, buttons, and LEDs, I realized I could easily make an ART-DNe cycle timer. So I wrote up an object that uses the system clock and has all of the features of the ART-DNe. Next I ordered up a datalogging shield, this has an SD slot as well as a real time clock and a small amount of NVRAM. I updated the ART-DNe to read from a config file on the SD card, so that parameters could be changed without flashing the firmware. I still need to update the code to use the real-time-clock.

I also ordered a temperature/humidity sensor and then wrote a simple "weather station". Basically every couple of minutes the firmware will read the sensor and record the temperature and humidity to a log file. I also ordered up some soil moisture sensors and a relay board. I would eventually like to create an automated watering system for the yogurt cups.

This has been fascinating to read. My thanks to Terpene for the link to your thread. Do you do all of this grow engineering in your spare time? If you read the book The Martian, I'm guessing you loved it. 5 star thread rep.

Thanks, these little things are cheap enough that I can automate my whole house if I wanted to.

Yeah, I have a lot of free time I guess. I don't watch much television and only have my daughter every other week. I do some thinking and sketches while I attend meetings at work. I attend a lot of meetings.
