Just Married! Now Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Dubble

"Organizing my daily operations, observations, and tasks completed." This statement is the first I made when starting my journal, and I believe it is as pertinent now, for one shouldn't forget the goal: This is an avenue to facilitate my development.

For my production, I will be employing Sour Dubb clones to satisfy premeditated objectives. The utilization of cloned genetics provides valuable opportunity for: strict canopy control, universal flower maturity/ripening, and ultimately a consistent experience for the patient. The improvements are too many to list for my objectives, but these are the few that ultimately motivated this decision.

The true sour dubble clone was found in a small handful (4) of seeds received from BOG at an outdoor festival in northern California a few years ago(2008) at the time my friend was given the seeds he was told its "sourdiesel x sourbubble(never released to the public(e) and its the best pot you will ever smoke". two of the seeds were sown. The plant kept is one of the best tasting Cultivars you will find(e).

Hydroponic System Adjustments:
- I have lowered the water table about 1.5" in an effort to better control the water profile within the media containers. The working reservoir now holds about 18.5 gallons of solution.
- I have added an aquarium recirculation pump within the primary working solution reservoir to ensure an effective balance is maintained. In my previous production I identified slime deposits and minor precipitation (although this is due to my excessive input of Potassium Silicate).
- I have added air stones to each individual bucket in an effort to keep the growing mass of roots from tangling and sitting stagnant. I have identified rotting on a few plants submerged root masses during previous cycles.

Conscious Mistakes Identified:
- I nearly made a catastrophic mistake. I nearly adopted an alternate hydroponic fertilizer, therefore adding another variable to my already chaotic production. "Disaster" averted, whew...
- While I was conscious of the Phosphoric Acid concentration, I still input too much, quickly dropping the pH from 6.2 to 5.6. Because of this I delayed the flooding of the individual sites to allow the solution to balance out. This immediately brought back memories of my first grow, when I micro-managed the solution pH.
- I added aquarium grade carbon to the reservoir, but failed to clean it sufficiently, therefore "polluting" the working solution. Immediately I removed the carbon and lectured myself once again about adding another variable to the production.

Conscious Improvements Identified:
- I have mixed a stock solution with warmed reverse osmosis H20 and Jack's Hydroponics in an effort to create a consistent solution that is true to the profile listed on the label. When creating a solution by the input of dry nutrient into H20 at such small quantities you are likely to experience imbalances.
- Replacing Intake Filters, HEPA Filters and the addition of filtration/aeration within the working solution.
- Monocrop
- Maintaining an effective relationship with these living individuals.

The Introduction!

The cuttings were placed directly into the hydroponic system August 18 @ 11:15 am. These cuttings are small and stressed, but will persevere, I'm rather certain.
- Medium Characteristics: Clay aggregate screened to achieve a desirable H20/02 balance, then charged with a 200 ± 10 PPM solution of 1/.66 Jack's/CalNit @ 5.9 ± .2 pH.
- Working Solution Concentration and Profile: 210-220 ± 10 PPM (1/.66 Jack's/CalNit), Phosphoric Acid added as suggested via a meter to manage pH.
- Working Solution pH: 6.0 ± .2, adjusted occasionally with Phosphoric Acid
- Working Solution Temperature: 76 ± 2ºF
- Water Table Height: 6.5"
- Gravity Reservoir Concentration: 210-220 ± 10 PPM (1/.66 Jack's/CalNit)
- Air Intake: I have ensured that there is no direct air flow disturbing the cuttings via the flow control installed on the fan
- Fogger: 5 disc operating within reverse osmosis H20 (5 gallon bucket)

No roots have been identified on the few I have dug up, although all of the cuttings are expressing positive characteristics: turgidity, photo-tropism, color.
To be honest, we may be getting a divorce if these women don't start putting out soon.

Update (08/26/2015): I have chosen to remove these cuttings from the growth sites and to continue with the seed I have sown. I chose to remove these cuttings due to some concerns regarding Sour Dubble Dudding, and because of the variability of health and the consequential variability of rooting times.

Not my best work coming from my indoor summer crop that got a bit too hot , regardless this strain is always some of the finest cannabis I gro . Solid potency and tastes amazing down to the smallest crumbs and all the way to the roach . Big respect to the fella that gifted me this cut . Neither pics nor words do it justice

INSANE taste and smell...overwhelming and spectacular are two words that come to mind!
Oh man :'( I think I am going to have to go and visit the burial site where these now deceased cuttings rest, thinking about how much fun we could have had together *cry* *rests some dank flowers on the grave to show respects*

Ahhh, to hell with it... This'll suffice as an area to share an illustration of my friends
