bobblehead's organic bedroom of high brix gardening

Ok its about time I start another thread. If I don't, Mr. D is gonna run out of good ideas pretty soon...

In our last episode, the lake house took a shit just when things were at their best and I was bumping 10kw. Its cool though cause I planned to shut down anyway, and relocate. Things just got pushed ahead a few months.

My last grow was my final one with a high plant count. I'm a licensed patient/caregiver in Michigan, and I will be staying within my plant count from now on. I have too much to lose in life if I was to get raided. Now I'm medically compliant.

I switched from chemical nutes and coco smart pots to organic peat-based no-till soil beds. The room is completely sealed with a 36kbtu split, 200pt dehuey, 5 disc pond fogger, 6.8kw in light and CO2. Here's the pics.

This was around 2 weeks in.



This is around 4 weeks. The bed in the front of the pic ended up getting culled by week 7. Those plants never turned around. It turns out you can't take large plants fed synthetic nutes, and switch them over to organics. They don't have the roots of an organic plant. Expensive lesson to learn. The bed behind it is Straw DD, doing well.


All the other plants in the room including the Straw DD in the last pic were smaller, and made the transition to organics much better.

Oh yeah I didn't start the grow with 6.8kw... Each bed had 1800w. Then I returned two faulty 600w Nextgen ballasts and got back 2 1kw ballasts! Then I got 2 Raptors with horti eye lamps and another 1kw magnetic ballast from a police auction for $179. Gotta love living in a med state. So 2 beds now have 1 1kw lamp and 2 600w's for 2200w each. It works ok. I found out I should have dropped the 600's lower, but there's always next grow! I should have pulled out my light meter after hanging the 1kw lamps. I only used it at the beginning of the grow to test the lamps.


Golden Goat @ 9 weeks

Straw DD @ 9 weeks-



My new largest bud I've ever grown. This cola is directly in front of the gallon jug.



Previous largest bed ever grown, Straw DD


FAQ

What are the genetics? Original Strawberry Diesel x Chem bx1

Where can I get seeds? You can't. Cocktail Frank made them and donated them to the server fund. He says there aren't more.

Where can I get a clone? You have to know me or someone close to me




IDK how much longer I'll be running Straw DD in the big room honestly... You can see by the pic that she's not that frosty when you compare her to the cultivars that get more hype, like the white, golden goat, gsc-f, etc etc etc... I have lots of quality genetics that yield well, and have more potency and bag appeal. The buds are a little airy with the Straw DD. I don't think I'll cull her, but in my competitive market, its not all about quantity.

Glad to see a new thread! I betcha couldn't stand to sit idly by after _D and I finally got off our lazy asses and fired one up ourselves..

So share with the group please What have been the observations that've stuck with you in particular in the synthetic nutes -> organic approach?

What prompted the switch?

Dang dude. Stay compliant man. MI isn't the state to take chances. Bill Schuette has made it well known that he has every intent of sticking it to the medical growers and patients whenever possible. The recent concentrate BS going on is absurd.
