Boomer's 2012 Guerilla Grow! Northeast : 40N

Okay fella's, I know its early, but I am too excited to hold back. I am starting preparations on my 2012 guerilla grow after taking last year off.

This will be my 4th guerilla grow. Each time i have been able to harvest something, but I have fought varmints, storms, infestations, rippers, budrot & mold in the past. Not to mention, each and every harvest I have previously done, has been too early. My last grow, I cut on Oct 19th and she wasn't ready, but I had to cut due to inclimate weather.

Obviously at this point & time I am in the preparation stages. I will have a grow partner, someone I have successfully used in the past, he is trustworthy and not afraid to get dirty.

I am looking to start with 20 - 30 plants. In the end, I will be happy if I have 9 - 15 females.

STRAIN RECOMMENDATIONS FOR 40N?

I will be purchasing seeds most likely this upcoming week. I am unsure if I want to use any autoflowers or not. I am worried about their yeild production, but, I also need something that will finish end sept - mid oct.

Has anyone had experience with..

Homegrown Fantaseeds Top 44
Homegrown Fantaseeds Homegrown Purple
Kannabia Special
Delicious Fruity Chronic
KC Brands Cali Special
Nirvana Wonder Woman
Nirvana PPP

I am also looking at Hollands Hope possibly Durban Poison.

Something mold resistant would be a +++!


I will be using those plasticy type grow bags. I am thinking 7 or 10gal bags. Soil is going to be the most expensive part. I am thinking of a 50:25:25 ratio of Organic Mix:Top Soil:Perlite probably some worm castings as well.

NUTRIENTS

As for nutrients, I will be using General Hydroponics (love em) Flora series. I will be following the Lucas method.

Germination / Seedlings

Each seed will be properly germinated & planted in jiffy pots. They will be grown, 5 at a time, inside a grow box that I will prepare. The grow box, you might laugh at, but it HAS WORKED FOR ME BEFORE!

It will be a simple 5gal bucket, flipped upside down. Inside sprayed flat white, ONE simple CFL light mounted through the side of the bucket, ONE pc fan exhaust at the top of the box.

Me and my partner will each one of these seedling boxes and we will be growing 5 at a time for 10 - 14 days, then they will be transferred outside.

I am hoping to have them all outside by May 18th.




So please, ladies & gentleman, take a seat and enjoy the show! Any advice would be greatly appreciated (esp strain recommendations ATM) Wish me luck and lets pray for a pleasant 2012 grow season!

Hey, What Lat are you? Finishing by late September is pretty early. I don't know about any of your gear outside but I would concentrate on fast finishers, or talk to peeps you know who have successfully ripened a strain near you or at same latitude, similar climate. Last year I grew some autos in green shopping totes. They are basically 7 gallon smart pots. They had handles so I could move them although by the end of the season they were pretty much done in by UV. And the green color was spot on for guerilla growing. That's the only way I have ever gotten a harvest of autos without mold. They really have trouble planted in dirt guerilla style. Think about not getting all those seeds and just grow one or two strains you know are going to work.

I am 40N.

My first / last frost is May 18th / Sept 20, however, with our extremely mild winter, id expect the last frost to be mid April. And, on average, the last frost doesn't usually hit until the beginning of October. Nothing crazy early, I just need to find something that will finish earlier than most. People do it WAYY north of me.

I have been really looking @ KC Brains Brain Damage & Black Label Hollands Hope. Will also be getting a few freebies from the seedbank I am ordering from. I'm gonna order between march 2nd and march 5th because they are celebrating there 5yr anniversary = more freebies!! LOL

Since you're having trouble in part because of late harvests, have you considered something earlier finishing? Maybe a mid-to -end of september type strain?

And PPP is a version of DP.

Well, the KC Brains Brain Damage is supposed to finish in sept. its genetics are Afghanistan x Double Afghani. And same goes for the Hollands Hope, it is supposed to finish in sept. aswell AND it is resistant to mold with is a bonus in my book.

I think that's what I will go with boys, unless someone can suggest otherwise? I will be ordering thru attitude (btw, they have a really nice promotion if your order from mar 2 - 5)

Stay tuned to this log folks, I will be posting plenty of updates of my seed choice (tho I think I already have it down pat), my seedling grow box, my labor intensive setup at my grow areas. The whole 9 yards. You don't want to miss out

I am shooting for 15 - 20oz's. Something I have never pulled off before, all in all this is looking like it will be a 25 - 30 plant grow.

Damn homie you got that no problem...I gotta tell ya tho I don't have the stomach to run seeds outdoor, don't wanna pheno hunt etc. so I run strong indica from NE USA, no Dutch genes


I'll follow along here, planting about the same time as you. And I'd like to see if the ones put out after solstice flower sooner...the peace!

Beautiful plant you had there Craven! Where about's are ya? (Lat wise?)

If your in the NE like me, then you have to know about our dreaded wet fall's. Its the absolute worst!!

I am now really looking into Hollands Hope & Early Durban. They are both fast finisher's that don't really seem to disappoint.

Along with this order, I will be receiving a bunch of freebies, and I may be able to scrape up some bagseed as well. But my main concern in HUNTERS AND COLD MOLDY FALL. So I see it as, the sooner I can harvest, the better odds I have for getting ripped and losing a big percentage of product due to mold (both of which happened to me already).

Went out hiking for about an hour or so. It is still very hard to judge a good site because the tree's are all bare.

I am thinking about using a chainsaw? But I am worried about drawing too much attention. I have no open fields in my area, it is all woods with big oak tree's blocking out the light. I usually look for fallen / dead tree's that allow some light to shine through.
