What up IC! It is time to fuck some shit up on a new level, atleast for me. I have been busting my ass for 8 months getting situated in my new spot, still lots of work to do even cleaning up all my old spots. Besides being swamped, everything is looking good for my first real round through the new setup. Some of you may have caught my new build thread a while back documenting the building of my new space, maybe some haven't. Here is a link if you want more room details then I provide here:
Ok I have 30 sour bubbles from my #1 lady, they were in the cloner four 4 weeks on delay waiting for build, so they had thick stalks and huge roots to begin with. I put them directly into 5 gallon pots to veg under 4K MH, they stayed there for 6.5 weeks, which is longer then I will go next time. Everything getting up and running does't cooperate with timing the first go around.
I topped them around 8", once they recovered and bushed out I supercropped them. This clone really doesn't like to spread out, she likes to grow straight up all together like a bouquet. Later a week before a transplant into 20 gallon smartpots I topped and supercropped them at the same time. After recovering from transplant I tied all their asses down to the pot, LST style to spread them out even more.
You should know also, my canopy at the moment is tighter then I would like, and I will be installing the addtional light movers needed soon to widen my canopy for the next round of veg. Right now the Canopy I know is 20ft long, probably about 7ft wide. So these girls have now been in their smartpots for about 4 weeks, and they are ready to go. Only problem to speak of is some nute burn from me getting to experimental with the new nutrient line I am using for supplementaion of my add water only mix.
This weekend the girls will be moved over to the flower room which is 20ftL x 16ftW x 9ftH. The room has 10 K of hortilux hps, perfect co2 levels, humidity levels, and temps. The whole structure is sealed and ran with a 5ton Excel stealth AC.
The soil is an organic add water only mix, I will be supplementing with hibrix, and the GH general organics line. I pump in fresh 4ppm RO water to my main supply tank where it is mixed with the three condensate pumps waste which recylces my water.
I am expecting big things to come of this, when the girls get moved over and spread out a bit more they will really blow up. I have 30 clones rooting now getting ready to go through the same process, so the next round will be the exact same setup, I love growing sour bubble. I just counted since day one, these will have 75 days veg + 2 extra weeks in the cloner. 9ft ceilings sour bubble will never ever come close.
This is in the veg room, I will be cleaning the flower out and installing these in the next few days. Awesome updates to come. Ok so let me post a few of their progress shots for you:
