I have also germinated from seed an auto Northen Lights, more so to play with (I want to top heavy) which I’ll move to the smaller tent (tent 2) at some point of the vegging cycle.
I have 20lt air pots ((only registered users can se the link, login or register)) which contain Coco Canna with three heaped table spoons of bat guano. The base of these pots have 1cm of clay pebbles to ensure good drainage. I don’t like to worry about overwatering, hence the use of Coco as a growing medium with the clay pebbles as added insurance.
I will be using the Canna nute range, using Canna V1&2 from start to finish along with Hydrozyme and Superthrive. For the first 2 weeks we also use Canna Rhizotonic with Canna Boost and PK 13/14 during stages of flowering and GE Ripen on the last week. A one week flush to end things.
We started last Sunday meaning this Sunday (January 29th) will be end of week one in the tent. At this stage (pictures soon) we have five clones all very much thriving with a good stable start. Will transport into air pots as late as possible as the air pots are so big that this will make a big difference to direct light. At present they are as close to my lights as possible (I want to minimize lagging (you call it stretching in the states?) as yield is important. My auto intake is passing air directly over the clones to strengthen and cool (lights are 30cm away but being checked every 10 hours min).
I’m running MH 400W (sunmaster) and will change when onto 12/12. (I’m going to start on 16/8) I’m vegging for a min of 4 weeks with a two small tier SCROG netting in play with 2inches inbetween.
Finally I hand water (albiet using a pump system so I can feed to pots at back of tent, but I controll this, it’s not automated) with my water and nutrients airated.
I will not be topping the Annunaki, as I’ve been warned this causes problems with weight of buds, and with four in one tent I think I’ll have enough on my plate as it is. They will be Supercropped heavily, again genetics have shown this plant shows tremendous reaction to this method. We will be trying all kinds of shit with the Northen lighs though (please throw me ideas).
End "Blue Sky" target – 20oz per plant (100z in total) plus anything from Northen Lights
End Realistic target – 12oz per plant (60oz in total) plus anything from Northen Lights
End Worst Case target (shows regress in talent from last 3 grows) – 8oz per plant (24oz in total) plus anything from Northen Lights
So like I said, any help would be great. And no more dumb fucking quesions, I’m getting there.
