Well folks, after a longer hiatus than I wanted or anticipated, I am back at it and ready to go.
Same setup of 5 x 5 tent with a 600W vertical bulb, 5 - 5gal fabric pots of organic soil that has been sitting for a good while now.
The mix is:
1/2- bail of Promix HP
15l - organic EWC
1/2- bag EasyBake
The EasyBake is an 3kg organic amendment mix designed to be mixed as above and good for the entire life cycle. It contains kelp meal, neem meal, rock phosphate, alfalfa meal, aerobically composted turkey manure, feather meal and diatomaceous earth.
I used this same mix for my first run but thought it was a tad N heavy and a little light on the P and K so this time I also added:
1 cup of Fish Bone Meal
1 cup of Crab Shell Meal
2 tbsp of Sul Po Mag
The mix has been kept moist with a couple teas here and there.
I got my hands on some clones that I couldnt say no to and they have been sitting in 1 gal pots of the mix for much longer than I anticipated while I dealt with some things and dragged my but a bit. They were starting to show that they didnt like being cooped up when I potted up.
The pot up revealed to me that root development, despite the length of time in the 1 gal pots, was not exactly prolific. So I have something to work on for the next mix. The plants struggled a bit initially after the repot but are coming around now.
We are skipping all the foreplay and getting right too it as I flipped them to 12/12 yesterday. I would like to get more root development but If I dont flip these lanky bitches, they will over grow my space.
The line up is:
2 - Lime Cookies
2 - GG#4
1- GSC Forum Cut
The minuscule yield from the forum cut has me only wanting to do 1 to try it out. The other two are solid yielders so they should balance out hopefully.
I will give maybe 1-3 teas over the first 3-4 weeks of flowering and then just let it ride with water only.
Ill get some pics up later today or tomorrow.
