My soil mix Contains.....
-Compost My own
-Composted Chicken Crap and Straw from Chicken House floor
-And some decomposed "Tree" from the forest behind the Cabin
per Gallon of water everytime I water
-They are fed 4-droppers full of Schultz 10-15-10

The idea behind this is simple, in Dr.B’s SOG style grow you want to incorporate the stretch into the grow. This is achieved by mounting the lights at a height where the plants finish growing within inches of the lights. Currently, Dr.B flowers his clones at 2-3 inches and they finish at approx. 14in (Chesaw strain). A trial and error bases is required to find the ideal height for your strain/pheno type.
The budsicle is the natural reaction of every MJ plant when you find her "Sweet Spot". The “SweetSpot” is the height at which we induce flowering to achieve max Height/Weight without side branching. The S.S.(SweetSpot) of each kind is different for some it's 3" and others its 5”,6”,7”, you get the Idea . My old Haze x xNL#5 flowered at 1" and finished 17 weeks later at 29-31".
Doc, I believe you said your flower box was 28" tall (?) Since your lights are fixed do you elevate the individual pots when they're first placed into the box ?
Yup' they sit on some 4" pots that are about 5 Inches tall for about 7-10 days when they first go in
-16 plants per sq ft.
-20oz(700ml) pop bottles cut down to 16oz(560ml) with 11 holes drilled into the bottom
This “drowning” style of watering is only necessary when using a container that is 16oz or smaller. The benefits from this “ebb & flow” type of watering is it forces bad gases out and ensures all of the soil is used by the plant.
1. Find a container that is slightly larger than your 16oz bottle.
2. Place your 16oz bottle into the container.
3. Fill the container with water/nutes until the water level is above the soil, hold down soil if necessary.
4. Continue holding bottle down until you can no longer see bubbles rising to the surface(approx. 1-2 minutes under water).
5. Allow the bottle to completely drain before putting back into your grow space(usually takes 5-10mins).
This watering method can be very time consuming
, I speak from experience.
Each bottle is given one quarter turn when returned to the cab so that all sides can receive light.
-When your seedling has hit its 3rd node, top it. In approx. 5-7 days, timing may vary from strain to strain, you will have two 1 inch cuttings. Use these two cuttings to determine your plant's sex.
-it is made from a bed of perlite in any clear/opaque container that seals.
-100% wet perlite soaked with 10 drops SuperThrive per gallon of water and pour off the excess water....leaving 1/2"(inch) of water under the perlite...
-Press the perlite down firmly...and make lil' holes in it about 1-1.5" apart...
-Make yur' cut and dip in whatever you use .....
-put it in the hole and press perlite up around it...
-Repeat til box is full...
-Seal it up and don't touch it for 2 dayz...
-after 2 days open it up 1 or 2 times per day....for a week or so then start lifting the top a lil' bit each day til it is off....
-When they show a lil' new growth ....pot'em up.....
