I am using fish fertilizer 5tbs per 2 gal. along with molasses (3tbs per 2 gal) every other feeding, along with a soluable nitrogen that i ad into the 2 gals. I get the water from my fishpond, and they seem to love the combination. i feel like i have been pumping them with nuets and they seem to love it, i had a mg def but quickly corrected it early in the grow.
I have no idea what my PH is and have never checked it, i threw some lime in with all this dirt so hopefully that will keep it in check.
i moved them out into several different plots, around my site. Becuase my site is quite a hike/drive away i wasn’t able to look over all of them as closely as i had wanted. i had them all seperated into 8 smaller sites, this way if one site wasn’t good for whatever reason i would have 7 others to work with.
i have a horrible slugg problem that im constantly batteling but i feel like finally i have gotten the upper hand, i have been using organic pesticide (excpet for one time when i used Seven and burned my leaves pretty good in the beggining) its been organic ever since.
after some bug issues and rain issues i was left with 70 or so strong ladies (hopefully) that i transplanted into a larger site, and began to feed them again.
I dug down about 2 ft. all along this site, and took out all the dirt, then used 4 bags of petemoss, 3 bags of organic top soil, 3 bags of potting soil, and 5 bags of the MG mosture lock. put all this dirt into trenches, and then put the original dirt back over it, capping all the shit i brought in, i spent a couple hundred on dirt alone, and am glad i did as they seem to be doing good, already they are bigger than anything ive gotten before.
So i have had a couple of small operations that have come out good.. my main problem has been the frost cutting my flowering periods short. but i decided what the hell, i started 120 bagseed..seeds. on the 28th of may, they where all under a 400wtt HPS for a week (24 hr light), untill they threw out there first set of real leaves. i have been feeding them nuets at full strenght this whole time, and never saw any signs of burn..
After soaking the seed, simply place it on a damp paper towel under a warm (not hot) light. After a few days, you should see the seed begin to sprout a taproot. This indicates that it’s time to transfer the seedling into your grow medium where it can find more nutrients to flourish. Do so by gently placing the sprouted seed about ¾ to 1-inch deep in soil then cover it with more soil. Other grow mediums you can consider include rock wool, expanded clay, or peat moss, though these are primarily used for hydroponic grow systems.
Once you’ve amended your soil and secured a grow location, it’s time to sprout some seeds! Though many prefer procuring seeds from a seed bank to increase the likelihood of viability, bag seeds are definitely worth a go, but may not be as fruitful as store-bought seeds. Nevertheless, if you have a few marijuana bag seeds lying around, you should definitely try to sprout them. Here’s how.
How to Sprout Seeds from a Bag of Cannabis
Also important to note is the unpredictable viability of bag seeds. If the crop was harvested before the seeds were mature, for example, or if they became damaged during the curing or packaging process, they may not sprout at all. Though this may not be much of a loss for outdoor grows, considering the cost if setting up an indoor grow, it would be a shame if the seeds didn’t take hold. To increase the likelihood of your bag seeds sprouting, keep your eyes peeled for healthy seeds.
H ow cool is it that we can finally start growing our own weed legally (in many places, anyway)? Even better is the potential of growing weed at little to no cost – certainly much cheaper than your local dispensary. Granted, if you’re trying to grow indoors, you’ll need the proper equipment to supplement the outdoor environment, but if you’re planning on growing marijuana outdoors, all you need is healthy soil, a safe and secure grow spot, and of course, some cannabis seeds to get you started.
We also suggest protecting your seedlings at this point because the slightest stress to their little bodies could kill them. Pests, pets, or simple carelessness could easily harm your seedlings so, until they are strong enough to withstand a little stress, enclose them in a plastic dome until they are at least a few inches tall. You can purchase plastic domes from your local nursery or grow shop or simply make some by cutting the top off a few 2-liter bottles and setting it on top of your babies. This will also help insulate your seedlings to minimize drastic temperature fluctuations.
Hey ICMag’ers, I decided to get back at it again. It’s that time a year and while I’ve been dealing with some bull for the past 2yrs, which is why I haven’t been on here since 2014. I’m about to get back to business, I really have missed you guys. You’re like an extended family. Well time for the show. I usually don’t start my grow journals this early in the game because the veg stage can be boring but I’ve decided to document the majority of this guerilla grow. As all of my previous grows have been as well. I think I failed to mention that in the past, I’m assuming with me being in the dirty south most would just pick that up that this isn’t a backyard grow. I sure as hell wish it would be. Not sure when the marijuana laws going to start looking favorable for us in the south. We like growing trees too.. lol Anyway I’m rambling, excuse me I’m high on some killer dank I got from this guy.
Most all my grows are on a budget and for personal consumption, though i gift to friends every now and then. The very few that know what I can do. Setup is my usual spot in the woods, amended soil. The native soil is like a reddish clay type soil (I get alot of pink pistils out of my bagseed using this spot and I always thought it has something to do with this soil, I could be wrong), and I bring in topsoil, perlite, dolomite lime, epsom salt and manure. Veg stage I’m going to feed with fish emulsifier, superthrive, molasses, coconut water (heard good things about that recently, it’ll be a first) and every now and then I add a lil peroxide to the feed. The soils been mixed up for about 3wks now and babies been going about a week now. I know it’s a little late but my last grow was way later so I expect to do some good numbers this go around. My last grow yielded me about 2 and half pounds, I started that mid to late July. Being that we only in June, I should be able to double my last yield with this longer veg time and more plants. I have 36 bagseed babies currently about a week old and I feel like poppin another 12 beans, but we’ll see how that go. I want atleast a strong 30 female plants come the flip. I usually have a pretty good female to male ratio from my bagseed around 8:2.
