Hi All, welcome to this grow thread. As for my background, I have some experience growing in hydro in standalone 5 gallon bubble buckets as well as building a recirc system which I used for a while. Once our state went legal, I flipped to soil and have been running soil these past 2 years since we went legal before starting the posts here.
Electronics: 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)
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.
