bobblehead overtakes

Hello everyone

As promised, the new thread. If you haven't followed my grows yet, they're listed in my signature. It's been quite a journey. No joke, 1 year ago, I was growing in a 1 bedroom upstairs apartment. Then I decided to rock out a basement... and now a whole house. I didn't exactly hit the ground running in bobbleracks revamped. I still had more to learn before I would be ready to start pulling down serious weight.

I got a little wake=up call the other day... and it said "HEY, STOP LIVING AT THE ILLEGAL OPERATION!" That's not a message I take lightly... so it was time to clean house. Enough said.

So, this is the new grow. It's unique, because nobody knows about this place but me. The previous owners are gone. GONE. They were gone long before, and flew in to make the deal on the house. I just went around and locked the windows. All the windows were unlocked for well over a year. The property has sat vacant, w/o intrusion.

My house has issues... and I'm sure we're gonna encounter them together later on in the thread. I'm gonna start off by telling y'all that my water is harder than your momma's titties in a snow storm... ha ha... .9 EC. I have to use straight RO water.

I'm not heating the place, the grow is heating the house so the pipes don't freeze... and I have a 600w MH, a 400w t5, and an 1100w heater in my veg tent just to keep it up to 70F. lol... 435cfm scrubber and fan on a speed controller dialed down to medium. Just in case it gets too hot, i have a cooling controller set up to bring in cold air... I just need to hang more lights and I can ditch the heater!

So, on to the pictures... How do I handle my mix? with a shovel... lol...


I like how wide these bags are... cause it makes filling them easier when you have a snow shovel!


The tent is loaded as promised...6.5 72 site flats loaded with new cuts. 80 Straw DD clones in my bobblebags. This plant just doesn't like to root... I think I"m going to focus my efforts on less finicky strains for my monocrops in the future... unless I manage to get her dialed...

My wife said smoking will make you procrastinate. So I limited my self to 2 joints per day. It helped with my procrastination because now I am ahead in my smoking by 2 years.

Very happy that you got the house set up homey. Had to learn the hard way myself that monocropping is the way to go....you saw my N toxicity. Anyways, this is awesome dude, can not wait to see everything up and running.

but... it's not all shits and giggles over here... The thing about gardening, is there are no short cuts. It's like life. You get out what you put in. The lessons are hard... So be prepared.

The racks are disassembled, and still have to get to the new spot. That's fine, b/c this new grow starts with the veg, and not the flower... You have to veg your plants before you can flower them, so it only makes sense to put the veg together first...


That's not to say that I don't have plants to flower though... I have these moms taking up space.. and now that I'm confident in my cloning abilities, I can do away with the crutch. A lot of new growers ask about how you should trim your plants for a vert grow. Well look close, cause that's what these pics are for. Notice that the insides are cleaned out, sucker branches taken out... Everything was used for clones. I pretty much only left tops, and a few small bit of foliage that will grow some buds on the lower part of the plant. Remember that the bottom does receive light as well, so you don't have to strip is 100% naked, but close to it.



and my room that is currently flowering needs to go back into veg... I'm 2 weeks in with stunted growth and no pistils. I have healthy foliage... pH is on point. So it's a pest. Russet mites most likely. I didn't forbid this crop and I'm kicking myself.

Awesome shit Bobble! That is a crap-ton of Bobblebags...
How many pods do you think you are going to be able to run in there? An entire house just for growing presents some interesting potential. Acquiring a house just is not in the cards here. You would be lucky to get a shack, sliding down a hillside, and in the flood plane for less than $250k... However, I did see someone advertising on ********* looking to rent a 215 friendly house...
So is this the thread we should follow now, and not post in the other ones, unless it is thread pertinent?
