The purpose of this thread is a quick reference of Dr.Bud's work

Soil Mix:

My soil mix Contains.....
-Local Peat
-Compost My own
-Worm Castings
-Perlite
-Vermiculite
-Composted Chicken Crap and Straw from Chicken House floor
-And some decomposed "Tree" from the forest behind the Cabin



Nutes:

per Gallon of water everytime I water

-They are fed 4-droppers full of Schultz 10-15-10
-1 Tbsp. Fish Emultion
-4 drops SuperThrive

Light Mounting:

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.

Dr.Bud’s diagnoses

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".

Special note:

Q. 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 ?

A. Yup' they sit on some 4" pots that are about 5 Inches tall for about 7-10 days when they first go in



SOG:

-16 plants per sq ft.
-20oz(700ml) pop bottles cut down to 16oz(560ml) with 11 holes drilled into the bottom



Watering:

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).

NOTE 1: This watering method can be very time consuming, I speak from experience.
NOTE 2: Each bottle is given one quarter turn when returned to the cab so that all sides can receive light.

Early Sexing:

-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.



Cloning:

-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.....



Flowering Box Detail's:

- 24" x 14" x 28"
- 5 warm white CFL’s
- Cooled with a 265 dayton blower
- interior is painted flat white

Dr.Bud’s diagnoses

-The temp. in the Cabin is a pretty steady 72-75 air is pulled out by a dayton 265 into the toilet vent
-Keeps it around 75-78 in the box
-I'm at just over 5,000 ft. it never gets hot for long....even in the summer
-210 watts of CFL's over 27 clones in 2 sq. ft.
-they finish in 9 weeks
-Avg. 7- 21 Grams dried per plant
-harvest 3 per week
-0.75-2.25 oz a week


*Special thanks goes out to Dr.Bud for sharing his knowledge of MJ.
**Please let know if you find any inaccurate information and ill do my best to fix it up

FAQ



Q. Wouldn't it be better for your roots to use a container that doesn't let light through? just a thought

A. Traditionally this was thought to be true, however, this doesnt seem to affect the strains/phenos that Dr.Bud has grown out. The only way to find out if it affects your strain/pheno is to try it out for yourself.

*Feel free to send me a PM if you have any questions or info to share.

Good summary, eLiguL! In one of his threads, Dr Bud mentions that when cloning, the perlite is soaked with water containing 10 drops of Superthrive per gal.

Also, he says in the Geisha girls thread to top at the third node. But in his Bonzai Mum's thread, he shows a seedling topped at the first node at week 1. Which is the right way?

they are both right. if you can take cuttings and get them to root without extra nodes then do it! (twice as many clones!) if not, then take that extra node.
