Dr Green Fang takes an adventure...

Here we go! First journal of the new site for me. In between MP and MC conversion, I've had things go and finish up.


First pic is of what this journal will even be about. I'm running 7 strains this run ("Holy smokes did he say 7?!?!?!")
Basically, I had two runs of clones fail on me, for varying reasons, and I had to pop some beans. I went with various FEM's I had, and REG's (hoping for at least 1 fem out of 2)

Strains:

FEM
- 1x Purple Haze
- 1x Sugar Black Rose
- 1x Critical Jack Herer
- 1x Northern Light Blue
- 1x Afghan Kush X Yumbolt
- 2x Blue Lemon Thai

REG

- 2x Girl Scout Cookies X Larry OG



The other pics are stuff that's already going on in the flowering tents. Figured I'd throw that into this as well. Pic #2 is 4 clones: 2x Sage N Sour, 1x Cotton Candy, 1x Critical HOG. Since these are clones, I've got to experience these phenos fully cured, and let me tell you.. SNS and Cotton Candy did NOT let down. As a matter of fact, they were some of the best stuff I've run, bar none! BUT, that Critical HOG was the worst strain I've ever run. It was so bad, that I killed 6 females and ran just 1x SNS and 1x Cotton Candy in flowering tent #2, and opened them WAY up (pic #3) instead of running 2x more Critical HOG with them. You see, the structure was decent, the smell while growing was very good.. the trimming SUCKED (so leafy) and, after running 5 of them (3 in one system with Jungle Juice, 2 in another dif system with Dutch Masters Gold) they all came out the same after the PROPER dry and cure. These took 11 days to dry (all of them, not just the Crit Hog) and everything else came out amazing tasting and smelling. That Critical HOG fell short as soon as I put the trimmer to them! So leafy and horribly structured buds (plenty of light with 1200watts in each tent) and the cured smell and taste is the exact thing you'd expect from a "homegrown" smell / taste. I was extremely disappointed. Unfortunately I'm running 1x of them in this Tent #1 just because it's a static system that requires 4 plants everytime.

Sorry, I went off on a tangent there. Any questions, please ask away and I'll clear things up.




So, if you didn't understand from my blurb above, pic #2 is flowering tent #1 and pic #3 is flowering tent #2... currently. These will be the homes for the strains I'm running in this journal.

The last pic, is a Northern Light Blue AUTO that I just used for fun.. and it may give me 1/4 to 1/2 when dried. My last auto gave me just over 28.5 grams... not so much with this one. This was my "fun project"... I've left it in the veg tent, put it in the flowering tent.. back to veg, now in flowering again. I've given it nutes that I gave the veg tent, nutes I've given to tent # 1 and #2 .. basically, this this has been run through the ringer lol.

The smoke I got from the 28g's of Northern Lights X Big Bud AUTO was amazing. Just as good as any of the photoperiod stuff I've grown. The only good use that I can see with an auto, would be outdoor grown maybe? So It could get really big? I dunno.

I will never actively buy one though :)

G13 Labs - Purple Haze

I have previous experience with G13 Labs, and expect this to be an amazing plant. :) Thanks for mentioning your experience! I've never dealt with or heard of Positronics.

Oh hey, don't feel like crap SB! I value each and every thought you've given me :)

It grew very healthy and hearty..it smelled extremely good for the "scratch n sniff" test throughout growing...The nugs looked decent after everything.

There's just too much else that didn't work for me. Trimming was a nightmare too lol.
I highly recommend Delicious Seeds - Cotton Candy and TH Seeds - Sage N Sour. Ran these right next to the Crit HOG and got amazing results! I actually got 7.6 O's from the one Cotton Candy I ran last run. :) Such an amazing taste / smell / affect!

Thanks all :)

Bit of issues right now in the veg space.. I started nutes at about 550ppms (was aiming for more like 450) and I've either burned them a bit (tips are fine though, so don't think) or am experiencing some chemical lockout issues....considering I'm not using the Jungle Juice "Bloom" and I substituted it with Botanicare Kind "Bloom". Reason I'm substituting is because I'm out of JJ's Bloom. I think it's causing some things to lock each other out.

Added some Pure Blend Tea, to try to give it some of the Potash / Phosphorus that it seems to be locking out.


Sorry for lack of update.. had a death in the family, have music contracts to fulfill and being daddy to my 3 year old lil girl has been taking much of my time.

Thanks G13 and MR1 :)

@MR1: I'm talking about running JJ Micro JJ Grow and Botanicare Kind Bloom together.. and leaving out JJ Bloom. Only reason I'm doing this is because I ran out of JJ Bloom, and I'm trying to "make due" till I can get some more. I'm thinking the mix is causing a chemical lock out considering they aren't formulated to run like this.

Ok I see, I forgot about the micro and the veg. I thought the Kind bloom was by itself. I hope you get some more bloom soon. I really like the J.J. so far.

Yes, but they are now in 1gal's and getting their first bits of nutes. I'm 95% sure I know what's going on, but am working on editing pics now to upload.
