Here is my GG4, Peanut Butter Breath, Space Goo OG, and Bruce Banner Mixed Grow. I have 10 plants in my 2 x 4 flood tray all in 1 gallon root maker pots. Some are in coco and some in rockwool croutons.
There are 6 GG4, 2 Bruce Banner and one each of the Peanut Butter Breath and Space Goo OG. They are under 700 watts of COB LED lighting. Actually it’s a bit more like 750 because the Pacific light Concept COBS pull more than the rated 250w from the wall.
The girls are currently in veg and will probably be flipped within a week. I’m just waiting for the Glue to size up a bit more. They are being fed on V+B nutes, the RO formulation. It’s nice to be able to use the same nutrients all the way through the grow. And I like the fact of not having to keep a bunch of different bottles around. So far they have worked pretty good for me and I definitely like the simplicity of use.
Here is some background info on these strains:
These are my 2 keeper phenos from my Bruce Banner grow Lots of info on this strain in my grow. One is an OG leaner with beautiful purple buds and the other leans towards the diesel side.
Peanut Butter Breath
Genetics: DoSiDos x Mendo Breath f2 (Studly Spewright)
Peanut Butter Breath is a pretty new strain from Thug Pug Genetics. It is supposed to be a 50/50 sativa indica hybrid that finishes in about 60 days. And it does not smell like peanut butter I am told. Genetic info available at: http://en.seedfinder.eu/strain-info/Peanut_Butter_Breath/ThugPug_Genetics/
Space Goo OG
Not much info available on this girl. I was told it was a Jilly Bean Jesus crossed to 9 Pound Hammer. Been around the Seattle area thanks to Artizen but seems they no longer have it on their site.
GG4 Formerly Known As Gorilla Glue #4
Plenty of info on this girl online so you can Google her and also find a really long thread on IC Mag here. Possibly the largest thread on the site, it was so big they had to split it into an old and new thread.
You can watch her grow here too of course.
I am really looking forward to growing this girl out, especially after receiving a fake glue cut.
I have been assured this cut is the real deal.
Fingers crossed because she is half my grow and I don’t like being duped.
Cannabis Girls Gone Wild
These ladies have been vegging this past week and I am just about to flip them.
Growth has been good and I am feeding Veg + Bloom at 900 ppms and pH has ranged from 5.6 to 6.0
That’s pretty high for me but I wanted to push the glue a bit because the other plants are quite a bit taller. I hear she is a big, stretchy and vigorous plant so I think she will catch up if not even overtake the others.
Hope to get some pics up before flip but unfortunately my camera just died. No one locally had what I wanted so had to order one. So pics soon and also a YouTube video coming asap.
Mixed Grow On Day 7 – Screen Goes In And Making A Few Environmental Tweaks
So today is day 7 for my mixed grow. I just put in a 2 x 4 screen because the Bruce Banner was getting tall and soon it would be difficult to get a screen on. As it was I broke a couple of branches.
The Space Goo and Peanut Butter Breath are also starting to get tall. The GG4 is still below the screen but hopefully will stretch above it this week.
I made a few environmental tweaks as well. Humidity is low in my closet because its passive air source is a room with gas heat where the humidity is usually low to mid twenties. The humidifier adds about 10% so my room humidity is 24% and the grow is at 35% which is still low but better. When the weather is rainier(often in Washington) humidity is about 45-50%.
The other change I made was lowering my fan speed to pull less dry air in and allow the temperature to climb. I will be adding an article on the other LST which is leaf surface temperature to explain more.
Day 14 Leaf Stripping
Day 14 is when I like to do my leaf stripping. Some people like to do it on day 21 and some people think it’s crazy to do it at all.
Leaf stripping or schwazzing wont hurt your plants. Yes they look pathetic but they will recover fast. I can already see new growth several hours later.
If you strip off everything with a stem the leaves will come back with trichomes so you wont have useless water leaves to deal with. Do it now or do it later but at some point you will be dealing with fan leaves.
I cant explain exactly what happens or why but it throws the plants into extreme bud mode. It also lets light and air get to the lower buds that would just be larf if the plants are left alone. Here are some before pictures and after pics of the defoliation.
