OregonDiesel, VeroV7 Redwood, Co2, SCROG

Portland, OR. 09/19/18

Live from Portland, OR. Indoor, Hp LED, Co2 enrichment, SCROG. Strain: (Oregon Diesel x Timewreck) AKA Tardis Five Regular Seeds, local farm claims more stable genetics as opposed to feminized. Let’s see if that holds true. Tent: 5x5 Apollo (amazon) Nutrients/Soil: (organic) 1. Ascorbic Acid (chloramine killer for tap water, & lowers ph of my 8.2 tap water.) 2. Natural pH up (just in case) 3. Nature’s Living Organics Super Soil (subcool’s tweaked recipe) 4. FF Ocean Forrest and Light Warrior 5. Tea brews with guano and HiBrix plant molasses for flowering if needed Start Pot: .3 L Air pots. Bottom Quarter—FF Ocean Forrest Soil Mid half—Ocean Forrest/LightWarrior 50/50 Top Quarter—LightWarrior Light Warrior retains moisture extremely well due to its Pete moss composition. END Pot: 25 L Hercules pots Bottom Third: 1 lb of NLO Super Soil for every 1.5 gallons Ocean Forrest. HOT. Mid Third: Transition .25 lb NLO super Soil for every 1.5 gallons Ocean Forrest Top Third: 3:1 Occean Forrest : Light warrior Light: Timber Grow Lights. Vero v7 redwood. 600w for 6 LED Cobs, dimmable. Will probably supplement clamp on CFLs for side lighting in flower Fan: 240 cfm 6” duct fan hooked to carbon filter Co2: I will be documenting all my strategies here. At ~5 nodes I will implement Co2. Regulator: Titan controls 120v Monitor: Autopilot APC820 with infrared probe Tank: 20 lb I will be using weather stripping to seal my room. One door, one window. The tent will be duct taped along all potential seems like zippers. Slow release from tent is expected, hence the sealed grow environment. I will be doing experiments with recirculating the Co2 back to the tent using ducting and a duct fan. This I’ve never tried. SCROG: At about 2+ feet above pot level. Using a stretchy cargo net, like one you’d find in the trunk of a nice car. Easy to get on amazon for the right dimension and no weaving. Tons of updates to come.

Day: 107

The plants have dried for two weeks whole and now the fruits are here. Still 1 more plant to chop, but so far 9 ounces on 3 plants. I predict an estimated 12 oz dried on 4 plants which has me pretty happy. We’ll see after the last Humboldt tomorrow. Got quite a few hand size tops which is pretty cool to see. (I’ve been told I have big hands). I will say Humboldt diesel produced fatter nugs, while Oregon produced many more in number. Even the smaller nugs on Humboldt diesel were considerable; I didn’t add one lower bud to the trim / pressing pile. Oregon diesel, however, definitely had lower popcorn nugs. I attribute this to topping and enhanced canopy coverage, but the results of scrog and topping made for a huge number of nice medium size nugs from mid to top plant, which was the whole point. Next grow, I will lollipop the lower most bud sites as well. I will be starting a new journal after my seeds pop. Moby dick time, I’m chosen for a contest on ILGM forums for this one.

Kpgnomad 12oz is a happy grow! 😊

LOV|LED Excellent harvest!! Hopefully 12oz will last you a while lol. Such a pleasant feeling to have all that time pay off in a heavy harvest.

Hyerr Nice

Trichomes getting cloudy and or amber. Waiting for a few more ambers to show up, but at least I know I’m good to chop within about 7 days or so.

Kpgnomad My autos have a range Amber, mostly clear and some milking up. I am thinking in 2 days. It is my first indoor harvest at age 50-very excited. Damn this is fun. I’m tasting some stunted outdoor late season harvest and they are numbing us down good. It’s great to see images of others growing some pretty dank grows live.

LOV|LED That's about how my Incredible Bulk is going too. Lots of cloudy and a few ambers. Should be just about perfect by a week or so time.

Day: 81

Oregon diesel pushing to the finish in one corner, learned I’ll be top dressing at the mid point of flower next time, and never missing a day watering. I’ll be staying over spring break, watch out for Moby dick for my next run, should be serious with the UV light and 1700k lights I’ll be adding.

Kpgnomad Wow, you got this thing down to the science

DET—PDX Im just trying to set myself up to grow enough dank each time for a long time

Kpgnomad Yes, growing is fun but very involved. Looking forward to taking breaks when I have enough

Forgot to water before I left for Vegas. Plants were super unhappy, but perked right back up. Where there was no yellow before, I have lots now. Overall very healthy thanks to a mistake free grow, until now.

ClandestineWestOz They all look great mate! I wish I went away, always more surprised when not checking tent every opportunity... can’t help myself though.

DET—PDX Honestly they were the healthiest plants I’ve had, so green, no nute burn whatsoever. I found the recipe for sure this time

Flowering is going well, oregon diesel is showing its faster 56 day flower time. Humboldt is 63-70 days flowering. Will probably harvest humboldt a week or so early and press all of it into rosin.

ClandestineWestOz Looking good bro, nice and healthy.

Day: 55

First scent of oregon diesel is incredible. Now pungent, there‘s a distinct sweetness mixed with a sour finish. Buds have become glittered and frosty already, yet they have so far to go. Co2 seems to be boosting the flowering speed. Humboldt diesel is flowering slower, although one of the ladies appears to be moving quicker. You can see I’ve done some serious training for this gal to increase bud sites, there are many unseen buds due to bending. Can’t wait to see more fresh ones and watch the main stems recover vertically.

Day: 48

Over 24 hours flowers on Tardis are coming in rapidly! I hope they stand up to their quick flowering time of 56 days, and lets hope Co2 accelerates that more so. I am racing the clock to my flight back home December 22. It will be curing over the holidays, I will have to chop and trim before I leave.

LOV|LED Looking really good man! How far are you in flower? Mine are looking about the same. The little preflowers start swelling up real nice around this time.

Day: 47

Plants are really enjoying the lollipopping. May remove a few more lower leaves, but at this point I’m trying to only remove leaves as I see them covering bud sites. I refuse to needlessly defoliate. Had to loosely zip tie one of the two main stems stimulated by topping, that girl is vigorous. Will probably remove the tie after a few days.

Day: 45

Its happeningg 🙃Little buds are forming day 5 of light flip. Defoliating did the plant so well. Recovery in about a day by view of side branching! Ooweee do I ever recommend defoliation for indoor, its a must to make use of space.

5 years ago

Day: 44

Defoliated again, Its always a pain to control the side branching and its a very delicate process bending the stems back under the net. Lost one bud site so far to careless bending. Small loss compared to bud sites being gained, every day the training induces more side branching.

Day: 43

Male down, male down. Unfortunately biggest plant (previously bottom right) grew a whole lotta baby pollen sacs. Luckily only One Tardis (OR Diesel x Timewreck) showed male. Extra space has done the plants good, 4 plants is all I want for the 5x5 anyway. 2 OR diesel and 2 Cali Humboldt diesel :). Look at how much Humboldt diesel has grown since the flip to flower! Really good stuff. Had to defoliate the bushy Tardis plants, waited a long time to do so, too long. Defoliating immediately perked up more bud sites the same day. Loving it, girls are kicking into over drive now 4 days since light flip. Smells are sticking to my hand already, very gassy early.

Day: 39

Second day of the light flip. They stretch every day now, and as they grow taller I bend them to a new quadrant. I go to train them today, and to my surprise I smell something skunky already! A little early resin production from one of the plants, beautiful. All females are ready to go and all unknowns are removed. Stretch ladies, Stretch!

LOV|LED Wow they really grew fast. That C02 must really kick them in gear. Still on the initial 20lb tank?

DET—PDX I’m actually ended up with a 5 lb tank, and it has lasted me over a month. I can see the PSI as the flow meter is dropping, it will be time to refill it soon. Only 10$ per refill.

DET—PDX @LOV|LED and yes, I am certain the CO2 has something to do with the sudden increase in speed. It seemed like there was a certain point the plants had reached enough leaf sets to take advantage of the excess co2 in the air.

Day: 38

Flipped to flower yesterday, vegged for 37 days. Initial pre flowers show FEMALE for all 3. The two feminized humoldt diesels still lag behind but that’s ok, I wanted them to be smaller. I needed to start the first week of September to harvest humboldt diesel on time for christmas, it takes 9-10 weeks to flower. Meanwhile, Timewreck lineage gives tardis a 53-63 day flower time.I may have pushed the boundary, but I guess this is my lesson learned with my short quarter system in grad school versus my long semesters back at Michigan State. I didn’t have my grow tent set up until the third week of September due to delays moving in.

ClandestineWestOz They look great bro

DET—PDX Thanks amigo, should’ve started the diesels all at the same time earlier, notes for next run without the moving in process

Day: 27

Humboldt Diesel was transplanted to 5.5 and 6 gallon hercules and air pots. However, Oregon Diesel x Time Wreck is 2 weeks ahead, but has not yet shown sex traits. I may have to flip the light cycle to flowering before pre flowers arrive.

Tardis Plants have responded to the topping very well. Cali Humboldt Diesel is 2 weeks behind but has outgrown its air pots

Day: 21

Plants have been topped. Their growth has stunted vertically but they have recovered nicely. The new shoots have already formed in 24 hours. They should begin growing up again tomorrow.

Plants are finally large enough to take advantage of added Co2. The second set of true leaves developed almost totally in 22 hours. That’s outstanding for its age and size. Before transplanting I went from water every 6 days, to every 2 days. Photosynthesis must have increased.

Day: 13

Plant is growing exponentially with Co2 treatment, absolutely eating it up. Well, breathing it up.

Day: 10

Starting the new leaves, starting Co2 soon just waiting for a little more growth.

The plants like it outside, last few nice days here in Portland so I’m saving on the energy bill.

Day: 7

Plants are getting close to Co2 ready, after the first true leaves are half developed I will begin gassing them with my 5 lb tank.

Day: 6

Plants growing nicely, once my humidifier comes in I will start Co2. At 85 degree F co2 temperatures, 75% humidity creates optimal vapor differential for plants. Even at 75 degrees F, optimal humidity is 65%.

Day: 5

Plants grew again, ended up sealing my grow room with stripping and door sweep. Soon I’ll be starting Co2 once plants are a little more established. I switched them back to CFL’s for another week, young plants love them, and it dries the soil quick with such a close distance.

Growing semi vigorous now, pushing the new leaves out by v’ing its leaves. So adorable.

LOV|LED Hell of a setup you have! I'm jealous of the Co2. How do you plan on using it, filling up the tent every so often or slow release? Very interested to see how it'll turn out, I'm sure it will be great. Keep up the good work!

DET—PDX @LOV|LED Yes I am slow releasing Co2 into the tent. Using autopilot monitor controller with Co2 sensor, titan controls regulator to control the flow. The level stays very consistent in my fully sealed grow room. I taped across Mylar zippers with gorilla tape just in case.

Now they’re open, I’ve zoomed in so you can see progression under the Vero Redwood from Timber G. Lights...this sucker emits serious pfd’s of light. At 24” and fully dimmed (10% wattage) I had about 600-700pfd. To acclimate seedlings I started the light fully dimmed. All changes in environment should be done steadily if possible. Temperature difference between night and day should never max 18degF. Startling fact. So with heat and overall light intensity in mind, I’m slowly increasing bi-daily to 22%. I most likely will not top 50% during veg, depending on how vigorous my canopy. Work to 100% in flower. Not to mention the Co2. Honestly please prepare yourselves.
