Hello fellow Weed Nerds! Back with you for another update on my indoor cannabis garden. There is so much to learn when you are out to try growing the best medicine possible. A lesson that I am being taught in the past few days, is I need more Nitrogen in my regiment. I did however make a compost tea from my homemade compost for the first time last night. I know I am probably being a little drastic, but fish fertilizer is something a majority of Compost tea recipes call for. I know it would help. On the other hand it is just possible that I am not using enough Buddha Grow in my feedings. I know it could be worse, but if I get content, then how will I improve in the future? Evolving, and adapting is crucial. If this is not the reality, I would still be in the closet, with the same old cheap blurple style LED. No thanks!
What I am growing
- 3 Helena x Pbb
- 2 Rainbow Chip
- 2 Dirty Little Secert
- 2 Big Mack's F2
- 1 Big Mack F1(Banana Punch X Mac and Cheese)
All are photo periods, under a Kingbright bar style LED with Samsung 301h diodes, mixed in with OSRAM red diodes, and UV diodes. This is a full spectrum that I have used from the seedling stage. It is rated at 600 watts, and I am running at 80%. For environment control I am using a 390CFM inline fan, with a osculating fan between the canopy and LED. I used to have 2, but the other one burnt out on me the other day. May it rest in peace, it lasted me over 2 years, and it was on everyday for those 2 years! I have a new one on its way. Then I have a humidifier inside the tent set on an Inkbird controller to make sure my tent does not get below 46% humidity. During the day I have a dehumidifier set outside the tent, and to not let the humidity get above 50%. Although it is a pain, and sometimes it gets as high as 54 inside the tent.
So last update I talked more about the Big Macks then I did the others. Besides the fact that I created the seeds for it, they are also in the front of my tent, so easier access. The Helena x PBB from @bifbeans is also doing very well! As you can see from the very first picture in this post, one of the Helena x PBB is my #5gallonchallenge contender.
Return Of The Mack...
Well that is all for this update. Very excited to see how these plants bulk up. I already know what the F1 Big Mack is going to do, and that is enough to be excited about! But we shall see which one of these gals takes the cake. Will the F1 BM still reign as Queen of my grow life, or will another strain takes it spot. Only time will tell, and it is right around the corner. Will my compost tea feeding last night help? We will see, stay tuned, and stay cool my friends.
