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
Delicious Fruity Chronic
KC Brands Cali Special
Nirvana Wonder Woman
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.
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!
