Kaskadian's Late 2017 Outdoor Grow
Well... getting a super late start this season. I had a bunch of killer strains planned for 2017. I got a cutting from a m8 of mine I stupidly didn't quarantine and my babies in veg ended up getting root aphids. I have no one to blame but myself for that. Either way, I tore down everything, sanitized, and had to start fresh. Ended up having to go out of town for family issues as well which delayed the re-start further.
After everything above... I ran into some serious nutrient lockout from a combination of things. I believe it was a PH issue, combined with some over watering, and intense exposure from HID lighting on the wee ones. The plants basically stopped growing entirely, got super yellow/brown, looked absolutely horrible. I've since corrected this issue, adjusted PH, replanted into larger containers, and dialed my MH down to 300w instead of the 600w I was running. I had a good distance from the canopy but I suppose the intensity was way to strong even high above the plants.
Popped 15 beans (all BOG's gear)
5x Blue Moon Rocks
15/15 Germination (100%)
1x Mutant (I killed off)
1x Twin (still alive)
Medium: Happy Frog
Nutrients: Cal-Mag, Guano Teas (extremely light dosage)
I'm an OMMP grower here in the state of Oregon. I grow just for my wife & myself. I'm hoping there are no more hangups. We had some nice sun for a change here in Oregon so I've been gradually introducing the plants to this natural sunlight whenever possible. I'm expecting to plant outdoors at the end of the month, or possibly early next month. The plants are now outdoors (in their containers) 100% outdoors. I'm getting them more and more acclimatized to being out in the sun.
The plants start their days undercover and get moved under direct light for a few hours. I move them back undercover in the evening. After next week I'll be giving them direct light without breaks. As mentioned above, I'm hoping to have them in the ground by the end of the month, or early next month.
