400W HPS Scrog - 1Plant - 450gr Harvest

Hi folks i'm new here and this is my first post.
Here's one of the last scrogs i did, thought you might like to see.
The strain was chronic from serious seeds, vegged for 5 weeks and flowered for 8 (used GH Ripen @ the end).
It was grown in a big storage tub; the medium consisted of 2-3'' of pure hydroton in the bottom with airstone, then the majority of the tub filled with pure diced rockwool/cellmax & a layer of pebbles again on the top to keep algae at bay. I used a 400W sylvannia growlux HPS and canna substra nutes with canna pk as a boost. GH Ripen was used for the final week and the harvest total was 16oz! For ages i've been getting 12oz per 400W grow and this chronic/scrog combo has smashed my record completely
Any questions, just fire away

Thanks

Sensenmann - yes as far as i can remember i think i germed the seed in the last days of January and flowered that particular one around the 7th march, by around the 20th May it was all harvested and dried/cured and weighed.

zeppelindood - thanks for the warm welcome, glad you like the pics

Fredster - cheers m8, yeah it certainly is a nice groove. So nice im seeing if i can do it again. I have another plant in exactly the same conditions about 7 days into flower at the moment, we'll see how it goes..

Here's a nug of chronic - curing is a must with this strain. The improvement over time is unreal.

Nice grow NBG,

I was wondering how much water and nutes that monster was sucking down daily to feed those big buds? Your roots must have been massive! I use the canna coco series with the PK. Did you use any Rhizotonic during veg stage?
Nice Growin!

Excellent plant! I am growing my first scrog right now and was wondering how high is the screen from the base of the plant? I'm growing big bud and i have the screen at 9 inches. Do you think that will be good?

thanx

GODDAMIT! i was halfway through a decent sized post then i stopped and clicked on someones gallery....
Lost the f%*!ing lot
Oh well...
Harry Gypsna Lol yes thats me *busted* although i got sick of the waterfarms and stopped using them in the end. Yeah i thought i'd give these forums a try seeing as og seems to be getting alot worse in terms of the 'cool peeps/idiots ratio'. Glad you like the plants and feel free to pester with Q's if you like, i'll give my views on what i can. YEah you should go ahead and scrog your DWC man, even just as an experiment. What is there to lose?:smile:

nycnoobthanks, yeah hydro & scrog is ace but bear in mind the strain i used also. Chronic is a bf yeilder anyway so i doubt i would have got that harvest using something else, like top 44 or something lol. I think the nice big pot with the airstone in it is obviously a winning combo too, for me anyway.

GreenStreetHello man, hmm i think it was drinking about 4-5 litres a day? Thats just a guess though because i wasn't really measuring it. I'd actually like to try a coco grow sometime as i've seen some nice grows with it but i'm sticking to what i know for now lol. About the rhizotonic, nope i've never used it - is it any good? I like to use nitrozyme and superthrive in veg, alongside the substra nutes.

GMTlol thanks, she's not just a pretty face either.

KillBillBudshehe yeah i'd love to find more strains that perform as well as the chronic, yeild-wise. Thanks for stopping in

cannaCollectorHi, well the plants are in the dark at the moment so i can't measure the distance. But i think its around the 8-10'' mark. 9'' should be fine, what size is the scrog? So long as you've got a bit of playroom underneath thats all that matters really. I'd say lower is much better than higher though.

Lucky420lol yeah i was amazed, i'm always expecting the worst so i usually get a nice surprise, but i couldn't believe the yeild on that one. Had to check about 3 times in a row lol.

sackoweed400's kick ass imho. 250's are too small and 600's too hot for me lol. I've never actually seen a 400MH used all through flowering though. Even though my ballasts take both hps and MH i tend to just stick to hps for the complete cycle.
I am growing some plants at the moment, all chronic clones from the last run. I have 2 in one cupboard and 1 in the other, just like last time. They are about 2 weeks into flowering. I'm going away for a couple of weeks so i'll post pics of them when i get back (if they are still alive lol).

Thanks for the replies folks and i'll be back soon with pics of the current scrogs
