1st vert grow - blueberry headband

Hi guys,

I've been on hiatus after a fat ass dose of bad luck, some my of my own making, the rest just bad juju I guess?!?!

Anyways, I've decide to take a stab at vert. Plants are looking a lil tired in the pics as they've just gone from 1L pots of coco into 6L pots ( that's 1 gallon to 2 gallon for you Yanks &Canadians ) and then been watered to run off, this was like 4 days ago and they've bounced back and grown nicely since.

I've still gotta set up the auto watering via blumats and get the trays down in the tent. So ignore the mess on the floor etc.

The plants are 2 different blueberry headband clones I grew out in my last crop from seed. The beans came from Emerald Triangle Seeds and these are the 2 biggest yielding plants with a good bit of stretch to them.

Hopefully they get to about 3'. Most are currently about 1.25'... I've just flipped them to bloom, I know I could've done with vegging them another week but I'm very impatient lol!! Plus this is kinda an experiment just to see what they can do in the short time they did get vegged & using vert lighting.

I've noticed that plants tend to be a lot more bushy vegging under vert which for my purposes is good. The more heads the better right??

The lamp is hung about 1' above the tops and I'll probably leave it there unless they stretch way pass it. In which case I may even stick another 600w in there if it looks worthwhile, or just move the lamp up to ensure they're getting good lighting.

Criticism and comments welcome, like I said it's my first attempt at vert so no need to be polite haha!

Hope to put on a half decent show, with fairly regular updates... Let the chips fall where they may!

Thanks sweetestsin420,

The light is a 600w and the tent is 1.2m x 1.2m.

A few more details, using canna coco with canna coco a&B plus some ata clean, H&G root stim, bcuzz coco stim, budlink silicone and weekly foliar of maxicrop seaweed extract.

They're very nice mate, these 2 clones are quite a like smell and smoke wise. One is slightly better than the other. Smell is slightly diesel esque on one of them and the other smell is a bit harder to place. Order them mate, you won't be disappointed. Check my old thread on them in my signature.

What's up RIL thanks for stopping by bro, blumats rock! Not as good as multi feed drip sys imho but not far behind either. Stay tuned mate!

sweets, do you mean a net around the bulb or on the walls to train the plants? I was planning to let them grow as they wished but will get some mesh around the lamp to ensure they don't get burned.

i mean trying the trellis on the walls,as far as you want from the bulb,but the net would stop the branches from growing INTO the hot ass bulb,and killing them,that seems like a small place for a vertical using a 600watter.im very into the vertical pics iv seen so far.

from what I've read in here mate horizontal is the preferred choice for veg to stack the nodes etc

I think DHF mentions it in sqydros thread

was thinking blumats for the moms mainly mate I gotta water those twice a day as I keep the pots smallish

peace

I plan to tie them back when they start getting to close to the bulb. As the bulb is still higher than the plants they haven't yet started to grow to much towards it. They are still growing pretty much straight up.

Space wise the light is fine for from what I can tell so far. Temps are 24-29c. and the fan is never running over half it's capacity. I'll probably tie them back at day 14, or before if they start to make an attempt to stretch into the bulb. From what I can remember from seed they stretched until day 21.

yeah I read the same thing about horizontal vegging, to get plants taller. Vert veg makes em bushy though I can tell you that much lol.

I've hooked my blumats up now and there getting EC2.0 (the water straight from the tap is 0.4-0.5EC).

They're growing nicely now and looking really healthy... think the tallest is about 1.5' with 14 or so days of stretch left. Fingers crossed they max out at 3' but more than likely be more like 2-2.5'. Mutliple heads though, and if these fill in anything like the moms did it should be a decent grow.

Few pics from today, sorry about the lighting. Will get better ones in a few days time



peace


edit>> I'm actually thinking about lowering the light.... any thoughts on this? It's currently just under a ft above the tops of the plants
