Greetings Green Thumbs. New Round with a new grow, so I’m starting a new thread. I will try to update this one a little more often than the last one. This is an outdoor grow- in my backyard. I started all plants from seed (most of them haven’t shown sex yet) I started a bunch of other seeds, but these are the ones that made it. Genetics: Beldia (Morroccan Heirloom) x 3 (Critical Impact x Hash Bomb) x 2 Toxic Healer x 1 “Alice” (Snow Dogg x Gobstopper) x 1 Omega Star (Cannabis Family Seeds) x 1 1 plant is in a pot, the rest are in holes in the ground. 4 of the holes are 3ft deep w/ 12” diameter 1 hole is 12” deep w/ a 3ft diameter Grow Medium: Compost + Amended Soil Compost: I honestly don’t know how many years this material has been composting. There was a big pile of brush/yard waste that had been composting in our backyard when we bought it. When we had the majority of it hauled away, there was a layer of fine brown composted plant matter on the ground left behind. It had the color of coffee and the consistency of sawdust. Amended soil- I used a base of ProMix, Filthy Rich, Earthworm Castings, Vermicompost, and Perlite, and I amended that mix with: Humic Acid, Bone Meal, Kelp Meal, Green Sand, Bat Guano, Epsom Salts, Oyster Shell Flour. (I let this mix sit and cook for a few weeks before mixing it with the compost in the ground, and then waited another couple weeks before planting the seedlings) Feeding Schedule: So far I have given them 3 applications of LABS, 1 compost tea, and, 2 feedings with ALaska Fish fertilizer. The plants have received 3 foliar applications of LABS, and 2 foliar applications of Dr. Bronner’s Peppermint Soap. Along with the Bokashi and LABS, I have been trying my luck at making some FFJ’s and FPJ’s, using food/plant scraps from my kitchen and yard. I always try to mix the fruit scraps from the grocery store with at least one plant from the yard, to get some of the local microbial life in to the mix. Last night 6/24/18, they got their first feeding of Nectar for the Gods + Microbe Life Photosynthesis Plus THANK YOU to the Jedi KarrMcDebt and the PAy it Forward Family for donating the (Critical impact x Hash Bomb) seeds Thank You to Martin From Cannabis Family Seeds for donating the Omega Star. Thank You to my Homie “Morganik” for donating the Toxic Healer and “Alice” (Toxic Healer is a High CBD strain- which usually tests at a ratio of 1:1 THC:CBd, which is a highly effective ratio for treating my specific kind of Muscular Dystrophy)
Oregon Summer Greenhouse Grow Growing cannabis outdoors is something a lot of growers either wish for or can’t wait year after year to let the sun to bathe over their babies. This year will be my first “outdoor” grow although technically I am in a greenhouse that I had constructed so I will reward myself by calling it an outdoor grow. Looking around on social media I have seen some amazing outdoor garden’s from 5 gallon patios to 200 gallon monsters. It’s now early June and most outdoor growers have had their plants out for about a month now but I went a little different Being my first outdoor season and knowing the unpredictability of the Oregon weather I chose to go with a PVC hoop house to protect against any unforeseen storms. During the second week of May there was three days of rain and I was grateful for my planning. I transplanted my 2 ft high PineSol, Pineapple Chunk x lemon haze in a 50 gallon fabric pot I handmade. I used Down to Earth Pro Mix Soil for my vegging along with Down to Earth Bio-Live fertilizer mix. I got put on to Down to Earth product by my friend Dave at Everwood Farm in Brooks, OR. My plant was healthy right from the seed and I had topped my plant a few times and super cropped her. Along with the Down to Earth products I feed her compost tea and Epson salt along with kelp . With the PinSol transplanted I wanted to test out how a young seedling would do vegging outside in the greenhouse so I chose a mystery Indica I had gotten from my friends at Blackbird Indica Dispensary in Independence,OR. The seedling was suffering from over heating so I 10 gallon pots ready for some single colas.Mystery Indica I gave the plants a good soak with straight out of the hose water. I was worried about any bugs or larvae in the outdoor dirt so I was hoping the chlorine would help clean the soil a little. A few days later both PineSol and Mystery Indica were reaching and having some new growth. The bottom leaves felt the effect of the chlorinated water with yellow and drying leaves. After removing a half dozen leaves their were looking alright and recovering fast. A big mistake I made was super cropping days after transplant. The branch on the east side never fully reached up like I hope. The tops are pointing up but the branch is still leaning. I will be putting cages in this week to help it with the weight and rapid growth. Two weeks after test plants went out I wanted to add another plant to the mix so I transplant a 2 ft AK-48 into a 50 gallon fabric pot. This time I had 2 gallons ph water and a gallon of light compost tea. It’s been about a week and we have two new nodes on the AK. PineSol is on it’s 3rd new nodes and the bent branch has new tops coming from lower stem. My greenhouse is an open end and loose bottom hoop house to help with heat and ventilation . The 6 mil poly is not transparent and blocks about 30% of the light but I plan on going convertible later on in the summer. The heat gets up to 80’s and humidity around 60% but I think that’s ok especially by looking at the new growth. Plus the fabric pot will keep the soil temp low. I’m not planning on filling up the greenhouse right away. I am starting a total of six strains from seed so I have a lot of decisions to make. I have my plants about a month behind each other to spread out harvest and these later plants will be single colas and veg much faster. So far I have PineSol, AK-48, Blue Mountain, Big Skunk, Lamb Breath. and Mystery. The Mystery and Big Skunk seeds were normal so sex to be determined. I will be making updates later in the summer and maybe visit some other ommp grow sites and see how their outdoor grows are going.
