.

I want to get this out of the way fast and first.

IC stands for Immaculate Conception. I hope this does not offend anyone.

I intend no disrespect to anyone's anything by naming it those words.

The name was picked due to circumstances witch (oops, did I do it again?) will be spelled out further on in this journal.




I.C. is a White Siberian FEM (sorry) seed from Dinafem

+Indica / sativa Blend
Flowering period 50-65
Height (outdoors) 2.5 m

Genotype White Widow x AK 47

--------------------------------------------------------

I think I'm just going to do a pictorial to catch up to where she is now























too many pics... can't see theses on the list to delete them

those were my first attempts @ cloning

I drowned them early on but they eventually recovered
(thanks Cubby)

I was just posting any picture with IC in it

In that LED picture you can just see her (sprout) off to the bottom right in the 4" Rock wool

keeping the LED over on the flower side

with all the great results from T5, I figure why fix what ain't broke


the virgin run, bag-seed, LED flowering is still in progress, I just thought I should separate the two grows

I started with

PS/Edit

that's as close to 100% as you'll get out of me... in writing ;)

I didn't have them labeled way back then but later I did make one note of: " best stem, P-mold leaf " and I will say (with total 95% confidence) that the plant in flower now had the best main stem of all 5

thank you



my mind has been blown...


5 days!! and it went from


THIS to THIS


I plan on cloning her 3-5 generations (for the next year+)
see if I can get the feel for "getting the feel of" a particular strain

I'm trying to hold off on TOPping her and get a little bit more of a base stem before the " \ Y / " (TOP)

these first side branches are already 80% as tall as the main, if I top, they are going to take over as dominant (height)
but I "know" these first LOW branches don't normally get kept... should I cut them (soon) anyway just to save the plant energy?

I'd love to cut for clones but I only have the room for one plant in flower so its pointless
(need a local friend to share with)


I could
TOP and start LST on first side branches
remove side branches
do nothing and decide later

thanks surfinc





ya, I was being lazy (again) and pushed it to 5 days between refills. it just shouldn't be done.

although it didn't need water (level), it needed balance
I should whip-up some 5.5 water to add every 2-3 days

I seem to notice a larger/faster ph swing in VEGing plants...
but since this is only my 2nd grow, I don't really have enough data to draw conclusions yet


my notes (explained)
start = when I first pull the tub; what it is before I refill it
end= after I fill and ph

so it started @ 5.5ph (ALWAYS) and drifted to 6.6 over 5 days

-----------------------------------

I'm glad I started with bag-seeds so I can compare this pedigree seed/plant to something "normal"

I, once again, don't want these clones to survive.
Just trying out the clone bucket early so I can be ready when its time to clone for real.











Aeroponics clone bucket
shoots water streams against the side walls of the bucket about 2" below the stalk
the spray from that keeps everything wet inside

-BUT-

it sounds like the pipes froze, burst and the water is running everywhere

this thing is so loud... its too loud. It will draw attention @ this sound level.
makes me have to go pee too



I was debating on doing a FIM cut also but I thought that might be a little too much for one night

I'm either FIMing or TOPping the next node depending on how she reacts to this.

proud mamma IC looks ready to EXPLODE!!
(in a GOOD way)


all three cuts went totally limp and laid down FLAT about 10 minutes after that last picture

6 hours later and 2 of 3 stood back up

lets see just how well aeroponic clones





I've got to figure out how to kill this water noise!!
the pump has a "throttle" that is @ 100% now
I know if I drop to about 75% it gets quieter but I'd much rather kill the noise not the flow.

already wrapped the bucket in 6+ layers of ductape and put ridged pink insulation between bucket and cabinet walls

top and bottom are acting like drum heads but its not easy/possible to deaden those surfaces

the water splashing on inside acts as a drum? Is it the vibrations from the bucket that you hear or feel outside the room? maybe trying to dampen the bucket by putting sponges on the floor ? i have seen these suspended in a cradle with bungie cords in a magazine before also.. I will try to look up the picture ...was a simple frame that held the bucket just off ground and frame was resting on rubber to dampen all the vibrations...
might be tons of work for little gain IMO

not so much a bass drum BOOM
more a surface that sort of amplifies the sound waves
well, imagine putting a water fountain inside a 5 gal bucket
IDK I'll have to make a video outside and opening the door... maybe later

---------------------------------------------------




IC {DROOL}
I'd say the patient is recovering .... well








there are no roots yet
(yes, I peeked)
but the stems/stalks/leafs are ridged and strong
so far, so great I'd say
