UPDATE - 7:05 PM (-8 GMT PST) - PICTURES ADDED AND PART 1 IS FINISHED....NOT EDITING OP BUT I DID JUST OVERHAUL IT, WILL BE COMMENTING! TONS OF PICS TO COME STILL.
Outdoor plot I selected for outdoor growing at my home in California. It's a space behind my garage and the neighbor's fence is on the other side leaving about 5 feet in between, I dug down a foot and put bricks on the fence boundary. This area is not going to get the most sunlight so my plants will live in pots for a long time, once it's flowering season the area gets 12 hours at least.
And just to be clear....Outdoor plot ends where I'm pointing at the brick...the rubber thing is just a placeholder and will be replaced with chickenwire, I didn't realize I didn't need so much space! In the end I have about 4x2 and I'd like to have 4 or more plants growing healthily!!
A seed I found in my 1/8th buy of some top shelf Blue Knight (why are there any seeds in a top shelf right? They literally surprised me, they were on the top side of a nug crammed between that piece and the piece above, not visible until broken down to bowl or blunt size...so they don't sell it in shake consistensy, only nugs - there's seeds inside. I think there were only 3 and TWO OF THEM freakin' germinated! I HOPE these seeds grow more!!
Here's the bud that yielded 3 bagseed....would love it to grow. Straight indica.
THIS IS NOT SOURCING - THE COMPANY IS NOT A REAL ONE - THESE SEEDS WERE MADE BY ANOTHER BREEDER NAMED G*******S NOT SOCAL GENETICS - IT IS SIMPLY STATING THEY ARE FROM SOCAL!!!!
The strain is Tahoe OG BX3 ("back crossed 3" I'm not sure.)
Beginning of grow - germination on Feb. 25, 2014. I placed 7 of the 14 seeds I have from a local dispensary on a wet paper towel folded and placed on a saucer with another folded damp paper towel on top, a saucer to close the inner area and make it dark+moist, and stuck it in my closet where I imagine it'll get the most heat or at least closest to 70F (30C or so).
The bagseed Blue Knight was germinating after 48hrs a STRONG and LONG white tail appeared, no pics sorry
2 Germinating bought Tahoe seeds...don't really care about these but would be nice to see a sprout.
Both of the above two had this added to them, 1/4 of the recommended amount for a pot...This stuff works really nice in germinating seeds and lowering any shock of transplanting clones, but for my purposes it really helps germinate....again all of this was BEFORE my home depot and clone trip so I would like to show you how I take it up a notch now...
ALL of my juicy juicy nutrients that I'll need for my plants..... I think.....
We've got, all from home depot:
-Locally made organic gardening soil (Really fine and good for mixing)
-Another type of organic soil (smaller orange bag - not using this but its just in the pic)
-pH Tester that ALSO CHECKS FOR NUTRIENTS "fertility" - (phosphorus, nitrogen, `etc) no batteries.
-Dolomite based lime for raising the pH - (needs a little bit of crushing to be a powder)
-Blue pebbles for lowering pH (Not sure of the name but the advertised opposite of the dolomite lime sold right next to it) - this is so I can have complete control over the pH (Not sure of ingredients)
-Alaskan fish emulsion (Has tons of nitrogen, didn't realize it was like sludge you dilute but I'm happy with it. Will be useful in veg state)
-Perlite for my clones and cutlings in the future (ALSO great for trasplant soil)
-Sphagnum peat Moss (only if perlite is added) great for starting soil of a transplant clone which I have 3 of now!!!
-Organic bug spray (not a pestiside, needs to be hooked up to the hose, not sure of it's usefulness)
-ORGANIC POWDERED Blood Meal (to be mixed with bone and added to fertilizer... Nitrogen as FU*K!!!)
-ORGANIC POWDERED Bone Meal - (to be mixed with blood and added to fertilizer... Phosphorus as FU*K!!!!)
UPDATE - 7:05 PM (-8 GMT PST)
I have put pictures inside the post as well as purchased 3 CLONES OF:
Blue Dream - Sativa (damaged during transport and repaired with tape, should grow stronger after it is kept in place...
Girl Scout Cookies - Indica Hybrid - The most expensive strain sold at this clone bank, everything else was ten less and the same price but this one was more. I got it for the price as all other 3 and so ultimately he discounted me another ten on top of that so I got a total of 20 off of everything. Not sourcing or priced.
Bubba Walker - Indica - Last one they had, major roots underneath. Cross of Bubba OG x Skywalker OG. Mmm.
More pics coming in the next post. It's still raining a STORM outside and I can't plant a damn thing. My lights arent strong enough indoors to keep these alive but there is no light it's either cloudy and raining or cloudy and not raining. After the storm it will be nearing week 2 and I can bring stuff outdoors for light. No transplanting for a month or so.
