you know after further review, if your still willing to do a light test for us out door folks,
15 hours would be the amount of time I'd like to see tested. after doing a bit more research on flower onset of several outdoor growers logs, that looks to be about the key daylength.
the one caveat I'd offer you is if stretch is an issue with your room size, you may want to start(budding test) a bit early?!
if this is too much hassle ,its all good dont bother.
Care Free 1 - I got my coco dialed in experimented the past 6 months with great outcomes
North - I'll be glad to do it after all this is a TEST GROW and i also plan on running clones right after so i'll be happy to take some experimental request. Im guessing on vegging for 6 weeks but it will depend on vigor. I was basically thinking of flowering when they get about 15 or 16 inches & hope they finish around 30 inches.
Very healthy and happy looking seedlins Icon!! Their off to a great start!!! I also got picked to test some of Cannacopia Seeds, I was one of the last picked so I'm still waiting for them arrive! Soon I hope!
These babies are growing up fast i love how they look.They all look almost the same except i have 3 that are about 1" smaller then the others.They're all between 4 - 5 inches so far.
I took a pic of one of the larger plants outside the grow tent so you can see how green they really are.
A side view
Getting side branches
Some of the leaves are 2" wide
As for the runt i had will it died there was no roots so im left with 8 very healthy babies.
Bigger & bigger i have 3 that have a faint coffee smell so far i have 5 that are about 8 inches & 3 that are 6 inches that i'll probally keep in veg an extra week.Im guessing about 1 - 2 weeks before i began to flower.No need to transplant these since they're in coco i will transplant when put into flowering.
getting to be a small jungle
1/2 have these nice branches
and 1/2 dont have branching
I got 4 females for sure so far. I notice that landrace hybrids often show preflowers under 18+ light hours by the time they get their 8th internode. Its hard to see bcuz my macro function sucks but its alot easier & noticable under a magnifying glass. I'll post better pics when more pistils appear before i flower them.There were no light leaks or any ph problems etc...this early preflowering makes sexing way easier & saves time & space.
Look carefully just below the new leaves forming.
Only days away from switching the lights so i went ahead & transplanted them into 1 gal. grow bags.Im thinking of using Iguana bloom since i changed my mind at the last second & decided to use Iguana grow for veg.The plants are all about 1ft tall & getting crowded in my homebox xs. I see 2 different phenos, 1 pheno has no branching & a bit stretchy between the internodes & the other pheno is more compact with side branching. The pheno with no side branching would probally make a good SOG plant while the other would be good for LST, SCROG & easy to take cuts from...we'll soon see.
So today is the end of week 5 of veg & im going to start to flower 15/9 but do to a heat wave were having im starting them under a 150w hps until it cools down later this week then they will go under a 400w hps. Do to using a cfl that was 4100k i had some stretch in my plants. I usually use a 6500k cfl but i gave them away. If i had used a MH or a cfl that was higher in the blue spectrum they would have came out more compact.I also took a few clones & will report on the time they take to root. I also wanted to point out these plants have very little smell so far. I will take pics when they go under the 400w.
Nice work bro.
Thats pretty close to pure afghan right there. I cant wait to see how they finnish up
Are you going to keep any pollen from that male? Send some my way lol
Well done, hope the heat doesnt cause you 2 many problems.
The heat shouldnt be too bad its only for a few days.Im keeping the best looking male to make some F2's & a few other crosses.Its a vigorous bushy male i plan on keeping. As of yesterday i found another male so far its 2 males & 5 females & 1 undetermine out of 8.
