Week 12 for the Mother Plant & Cloning Grow Series

Week 1 of Flower


 
 

What up GreenBox Growers, and welcome back to the most lit cannabis growing Channel! Not today kicks off Week 1 of flour for the cloning and mother plant Grove series, which is also week 12 of the overall grow so we will be going over all of the changes that I have made and the different steps that you should be taking out of the plants are in flower. And I also switched up the lighting schedule so it is now 12 hours on and 12 hours off for each day. So while we have flipped the plants over into flower, there is a little bit of a transitional phase where they need to kind of get started with that bud development. 

So we may see some pistols starting to form during the course of this week but probably not too much change in terms of Bud growth, until starting next week. Or even the middle or end of week 2 of flower. So before I get started with today's video if you are following along with these videos and you feel you need a little bit more help, I do offer one-on-one grow guidance where I myself personally teach you over the phone each day how to grow. So if you want to learn more about that just feel free to visit the link right here on the screen and you can see more details on that page. All right folks, so now that you know we are doing in this week's video let's get started with day 1 of the week!

Alright GreenBox Growers, here we are out in the garage for the very first day of flower for the mother plant and  cloning Grow video series. And again this is the first day of week 12 overall for the grow. So the Clones are ready for their next watering which is just going to be there third plane pH watering and I will probably be splitting about two two two and a half gallons between the five of these plants. Now I just want to emphasize how great the vegetative growth has been Since I defoliate it and trimmed them up. 

You can see all that is really left now or some nice tops that are going to have some nice big buds growing on top of them instead of a bunch of fan leaves that are really just going to be blocking lower parts of the plants. So you can see they all have that kind of star shape going on a different tops coming out and then that big name one in the middle so, I'm hoping maybe an ounce per one of these clones or per each of these clones so a total of 5 ounces from the clowns and then maybe two to three plus Oz from the mother plant.

 So now that we are in flower as I was mentioning earlier, the lights are on the 12 12 cycle so they turn on for 12 hours each day and Then 12 hours of complete darkness. And during that darkness. Is extremely crucial that no light leaks in to the tent because that can disturb the plants, and cause issues with the quality and yield of your bud. So that is one thing that is really important, the next thing is the light, so if your light does have an option where it has different switches for the different cycles of growth, you want to turn on that bloom one during this period.

 So you want the bloom and the vegetative dials on now, and you will see when I have the lights on I'm running both of these for the Mars hydro. And then of course for the bloom Beast here, you will see was not on right now but when it is I have the seedling dial on 100% as well as the dial on at 100% And I am starting with the flower Dylon at about 20%. So the flower dial is now on as well for this light hear the bloom beast, and I will be working it up to 100% hopefully pretty quickly here.

So no more missing at this point as well for these plants as that is really important, some people like to missed during the first couple weeks of flower which is not an issue but I just like to prevent any possible issues with mold so that is why I hold off once I flipped a flower. Now that is it for today's update I'm going to water the Clones now with that plane pH water and then I will be back here in 24 hours for day 2 of the week.  Alright, peace guys!

What is a Growers we are back here now for day 2 of flower which is also day 2 of week 12, and the mother plant is now ready for her next watering. So that's going to be her first playing pH watering since her last nutrient feeding. Now, I kept the light on today just to give you guys a different look with the LEDs going now that they do have those flower switches turned on. And another thing I would like to mention today is actually there will be more defoliation going on throughout flower it's just going to be a little bit here and there at leaves grow out and cover up different Bud sites.

So right now everything is looking good in terms of growth, no big fan leaves protruding over Bud sites at the moment. So will not be moving anything just yet. But just wanted to keep you guys up to date on that so you guys know when there are some leaves growing over those Bud sites I will trim them up. And it may seem like something that will shock the plant, but now that we are in flower I am just going to be doing a couple leaves here and there at a time and not a whole bunch all at once. So that is important to follow that step because if you do a major defoliation during flower, that can cause some stress and lower yields.

 But if you do just like I was saying and you just remove a few leaves here and there throughout the week, you will be good. So that is it for today's update and remember no more misting from here on out, and now I will be doing that plane pH watering for the mother plant. She will probably be getting about a gallon to a gallon and a quarter at this point. Alright guys so I will be back in another 24 hours for day 3 of the week, and until then Happy growing!

Alright growers we are back another 24 hours later for day 3 of the week and the Clones are ready for their next watering. So that is actually going to be there first nutrient feeding since the start of flower, so that means we will be following the first week of flower mix on the fox farm Dirty Dozen schedule. So you will see that is actually week 5 on there, and I will be doing that mix at full strength. Probably going to split about a gallon and a half to 2 gallons total between these five plants here, and then I will also be out in one teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water to that mix. So that is what I will be doing today for the Clones in the mother plant is still good from that last watering. 

But you can see her can a PS really thickened up over the last couple days here, so today will also be doing some defoliation on the mother plant and I will show you the results of that tomorrow, but basically what I will be doing is just trimming down in the middle there that is covering up the lower parts of the canopy. Because you can see it has filled up a lot since that last trimming. So again like I was saying before it is going to be a little defoliation here and there throughout flower for both the Clones here and the mother plant, but right now they are pretty good I mean actually they have gotten pretty thick again with foliage so I am probably going to do another trimming towards the end of this week for them. So again I'm doing that first mix of flower nutrients on the fox farm Dirty Dozen for the Clones today and then that is it. So I will be back in another 24 hours for your next day of the week, alright peace guys!

All right it is now day 4 of the week and the mother plant is ready for her next watering, so it is going to be the second plane pH watering. Now tomorrow I'm actually going to be defoliating the Clones like I was doing to the mother plant yesterday, I just wanted to give them a few more days of growth before I did that to them again. But you can see the mother plant is reacting really well to that the foliation I did yesterday and all of the tops are looking nice and upright and All right it is now day 4 of the week and the mother plant is ready for her next watering, so it is going to be the second plane pH watering. 

Now tomorrow I'm actually going to be defoliating the Clones like I was doing to the mother plant yesterday, I just wanted to give them a few more days of growth before I did that to them again. But you can see the mother plant is reacting really well to that defoliation I did yesterday and all of the tops are looking nice and upright and perky as usual, and we are going to start seeing some really good bud gross and Pistol development by the end of this week, beginning of next week. Since we are just passing through the transitional phase right now. So I will be back here in 24 hours, I'm going to do that watering for the mother plant right now and then tomorrow once I am back for day 5, we will be doing that defoliation of the clones!

Alright folks we are back here 24 hours later, so that means it is now day 6 of the week. And like I said I will be defoliating those clones today so I will be doing that in just a second to show you what that looks like. But I wanted to let you guys know that for the grill like I do now have it at 100% seedling 100% veg and then for the flowers which I am about 45% in between 45 and 50%. So by tomorrow I will crank her up to 50% because they seem to be handling that strength really well. Not too much in terms of Bud growth just yet but again this is still just Week 1 so that is normal, we are still in that transitional phase and by next week we will definitely see some good bud growth going on at those Bud sites.

 So you will see this is the other grow that I have going on right now, and this is just one week ahead in terms of flour when compared to the mother plant and her clones over here. So you can see just how many pistols are  already developing at the bud sites. so that first week it is normal to be kind of slow like this but by the second week you will really start to notice that bud development taking off. So clones are still not ready yet for watering as the soil is still pretty moist but they will probably be ready for that by tomorrow. 

And now what I am going to do is the deflation on the clones and I will be back to show the results of that. Now essentially what I'm doing is only removing fan leaves right now and it is going to be the big ones that are covering up a lot of light and shadowing the canopy down below. As well as those leaves that are laying on top of each other because you do not want that during flower. So let me do this trimming and then I will be back to show you the results.

Alright so we are back here after that the foliation is finished on all five of those clones, and you can see there's nothing crazy I just really remove those big fan leaves just to open up the bud sites to more light. And that is pretty much it, took out I mean that is all of the leaves right there that I removed from all five plants and also  something I hadn't mentioned to you guys yet. I keep these leaves and add them to my compost pile because you can add Leaf trimmings and Garden Scraps like that to your compost. So really organic to keep these leaves and add them to the compost if you are doing that, and I also offer some composting videos listed on this site. So be sure to check those out if you are interested. So that is it for the deflation today and as well as update, so I will be back here in another 24 hours for the next day of the week. Alright peace guys!

Alright Growers, we are back here another day later in the plants are looking really good, and the Clones are loving that defoliation that I did yesterday. You can see all of the leaves are standing up nice and perky, and I am seeing a decent amount more of pistols around the main tops or at least early formations of pistols at least. So today the Clones are ready for their next watering, so that's going to be their first plane pH watering since their last nutrient feeding. And they will be splitting about I would say it's going to be two and a half gallons between all 5 plants. So I will be filling up the bucket once maybe once and a half and then using that for all five of the plants.

 The mother plant is still good on her watering from before I throw soil is still pretty moist. so nothing for her today, but she is still looking really healthy and is looking really happy as well. Still no Burns were deficiencies anywhere on any of these leave so I'm really happy about that everyone is in perfect health and condition, so really excited that we are wrapping up Week 1 of flower which is really more of a transitional phase because now that means next week we are going to see some really good development at those Bud sites. 

So that is it for today's update, I'm going to give the clones they're watering now. One other thing that is really cool as you can see the Clones, they are getting that mean Cola starting to fatten up really nicely. So you can see on all of them that middle main Cola is starting to rise up above the rest of the plant. And it is starting to develop a lot of early signs of Bud growth from top to bottom. So that is going to be a really nice man Cola on all of these clones.

All right folks, we are back again for the last day of week 12 here in the plants are all doing really well. The mother plant was actually ready for her next watering so I gave her her third plane pH watering since that last nutrient feeding. And you can see the Clones are doing really  well now that I've given them that last defoliation. You can see lots of new growth at the bud sites, and then actually on the mother plant here you can see pistols are starting to form there at the center of the tops at the bud site.

 So we are pretty much through that transitional phase into flower, and then next week which will be week 2 of flower I think they are going to start really blowing up with pistols at those bud sites! So that is really it for today's update, I gave that plane pH watering to the mother plant and that was really it. Oh actually let me give you guys a quick close up on her stem right there, her main trunk. Just so you can see how big and thick it is getting. 

Now even though the side branches coming out there pretty thick but this guy is probably like the thickness of a 50-cent piece. So really big.  All right guys, so that is pretty much it with today's update and that concludes week 12 of this Grow Series, but I will be back shortly with week 13 where I'm excited because we are going to start getting a lot of good bud growth there.

All right GreenBox Growers, that officially concludes week 12 of the how to  clone and grow a mother plant grow series. And also that was  Week 1 of flower so that is more of the transitional phase into the flowering phase. And once we have started week 2 of flower shortly here, we are going to start to see a lot of Bud development and Pistol growth at those Bud sites. So get excited for that there's going to be a lot of change coming up in this next week's video, as always thank you guys for watching and until next time…
 

Happy Growing!

Fox Farm Dirty Dozen Nutrient Review

Al Natural and Organic Nutrients for Growing Cannabis


What up GreenBox Growers And welcome back to the most lit cannabis growing Channel! Now today I am really excited because I'm going to be doing a full-on review on the fox farm Dirty Dozen nutrient line up. As it is a really great nutrient line up for beginners, it is very easy to use and also it is an all natural and organic company. So very healthy products to be putting into your plants, also just a quick tip this is basically the fox farm Trio plus all of their other additives. So if you already have the trio You can add on and build up to get the dirty dozen. Now in today's video I will be going over each individual bottle and how they help the plants and I will also show you guys some plants that I am currently growing using only the fox farm nutrient line up here. And so that way you guys can see what kind of results and Bud quality you can get from using them.

 Before I get started I want to remind you guys about our 2 week free trial to our step by step video library. Again this gives you full access to our  premium content section and all you got to do is visit this link right here and sign up for your charge. I also have two really exciting announcements I want to share with you guys. First off we just partnered with Grower's house, which is one of the top online cannabis growing supply stores. So they have an endless  selection of all of the different top quality products so I'm going to start listing them on the GreenBox Grown website so that you guys can purchase through them.

 Now the second thing I am really stoked to share with you guys today as I was just invited to join the Cannabis Club TV platform. So really excited to have our free videos up on their platform, that means you guys will be able to watch them while in the waiting rooms at different dispensaries throughout California and the US. You can also watch the videos online at the Cannabis Club TV website right there, and now that you guys know we are doing in today’s video let's get started with an overview of the different bottles that come with the dirty dozen.

All right. So here we are with the dirty dozen box, and then I actually used up all of the Big Bloom so I purchased a bottle of that separately just so I could have the full line up again. And then I have the feeding schedule right here and that is one thing I didn't mention yet  which is really cool. When you get a nutrient line up you won't have to repurchase the whole lineup every single time. You're just going to have to replace one bottle at a time because everything is used at different proportion so different bottles you will run out of earlier than others.

 So another thing that is really nice about this nutrient lineup is it comes with this feeding schedule, and they actually have a different schedule for each kind of growing medium. So if you are growing in soil you will want to follow the soil growing schedule and then they also have a hydro schedule, if you are in smart Naturals and then a few other options. To really convenient cuz you can just look at that list and see exactly what you need to feed each time you do. So now let me open up the box and show you what comes inside.

 It's a really nice it does come with its own measuring spoon but I already have my own so I haven't been using them. So I will start with the Big Bloom bottle here which is actually part of the trio. So yeah the trio is consisted of the Big Bloom here, tiger bloom right there and then grow big. So the Big Bloom is more for growing bigger buds of course as I mentioned, but you do use it throughout the vegetative stage as it does help with veg growth a lot as well. And you will see here it is made up of earthworm castings as well as bat guano, so like I was saying organic good sources of ingredients that they are putting into this nutrient line up. So again yeah you can see right here, registered organic input material.

 Now next up we have the grow big which is more of your growth or of course your nitrogen nutrient So that's why you will see on the NPK here we have 6 - 4 - 4. Now you will use this during flower but it is mainly for vegetative growth. Next is the tiger bloom and this is the third part of the tree of and this again is obviously it is really high in phosphorus so this is more used for the flowering stage. You do use it towards the end of the vegetative state, but it is more for the transitional period. Next up we've got the kangaroots which is just for your root growth and to help get a good root zone going. We've got these three different powders here all three of which are for the different stages of the flowering or blooming phase.

So you will see we've got the open sesame which you start off with to get your plants off to a good flowering, starting that transitional phase. And then you will go to the Beastie bloomz just to give them that big grows throughout the middle phase, and then you will finish up with cha ching which I've got right there in the back. And that is just to finish up those buds so they are nice and Frosty and tasty at the end. Boomerang is another thing in the Lineup which is really good it is a comeback formula is a refer to it too, but basically if your plants go into shock or having any issues, this is going to help them recover.

 Next we have the sledgehammer which is there flushing agent and this is what you will be using, you do use it several times throughout the grow just a flesh out those nutrients after I think like every 4 or 5 weeks they recommend you use it and they actually have that on the feeding schedule explain. So you will not forget that. But what is really important is that you flush right at the end of your grow right before Harvest. And that is where this comes in as well. Now in the back here we have the microbe brew and the bembe I believe that is coming up and Bembe is great for the flowering phase as you will see here. It has a lot of that potassium in there which is great and this is sweet and dandy so very similar to kind of like molasses and other products people add towards the middle of the flowering phase to help with the taste and smell of those buds.

Now now oh yeah I forgot the flour kiss which I don't actually use is the flower plant spray or a foliar spray as some of you are more familiar with. Great to use throughout the vegetative stage as well as what some people like to do during the first few weeks of flower. I usually don't do miss things during those weeks of flower but a lot of people do recommend it. But again this is just to help boost that leaf growth just to make sure they are nice and Healthy. As Leaves Can absorb nutrients through their leaves. So that is the reason why you do a foliar spray.

 Now I was mentioning that microbe Brew and this is basically to add in with other nutrients to help kind of strengthen them and keep them healthy. So you can see this is a plant food activator so it's going to keep that microbe system nice and healthy and there and it is really good for microbial growth so as you can see here it is a complex blend of ingredients specifically formulated Specially formulated to help plants achieve Optimum microbial habitats at the rhizosphere which is the root Zone. Pretty much so again this house with creating a really healthy root zone. So that pretty much covers all of the different Products that come with it. again for the trio which is just the basic setup you can get away with a full grow with that as the bare minimum. And that is the Big Bloom, The Grow Big and of course the tiger bloom.

 Now a little bit about the fox farm company, they are a family-run company which I really like and again they use that is all natural and organic ingredients for their nutrients which is another huge plus. And then of course they are located up in Humboldt County up in Northern California, so they have a lot of great history and experience with growing cannabis and figuring out what will work best for growing these plants.

Alright Growers so we are out here in the garage where I have a couple of my current grows going, I've got a mother plant and cloning grow series which is actually just finishing up their third week of flower. And then I've got my nuke heads grow series over here and they just finished up week 4 flower. So I have been using the fox farm Dirty Dozen on both of the setups and solely the fox farm Dirty Dozen along with some calmag of course by Botanicare. But anyways I just wanted to show you guys the kind of results I'm getting and so you guys know how far into flower we really are here. So the front row, I've got six plants in here, you'll see the three in the back or actually getting the nuke heads flower power package of nutrients so I'm not using the dirty dozen on them.

 But the three plants here in the front those are only getting the dirty dozen, so right here we've got a pineapple chunk plant, in the middle we've got a grape ape and then on the right of course we've got are Skittles plant. So let me just give you guys some good close-ups on how the buds are developing and again just finished up week for a flower with these plants here and the smell is amazing, the leaves are getting insanely Frosty and the sugar leaves are getting covered with trichomes. And then even those families that are still left are getting covered as well. So you can see just how happy and healthy these buds are with that foxfarm treatment and you can see the leaves there are no Burns or anything like that. 

A very slight nutrient burn on the very tips but nothing to really worry about and no issues or discolorations. No signs of toxicities or deficiencies either. So definitely working well with the new kids line up here. So that is that set up and then right here we have the mother plant and clones. And these are all lemoncello Haze plants. And all of them, are strictly on the fox farm dirty dozen lineup. So you can see these guys like I just said they're finishing up week 3 and they are fattening up really well and these clones only vegged for like two and a half to three weeks and and it looks like I'm going to be able to pull maybe one to two ounces, probably closer to 2 oz from each plant, so going to be really stoked on that. 

Did a lot of defoliation right here but we are really focusing on here is that foxfarm dirty dozen nutrient line up. And again with all the leaves in here you can see no toxicities or Burns, nothing like that. But it doesn't look like they got that slight nutrient burn on the tips in this program so that is good. Got them on a little bit of a better regimen in here. So that covers  all of the grows that I am doing in here right now with the dirty dozen. Just wanted to show you guys what kind of results are possible and using that line up.

 Alright GreenBox Growers, that concludes today's review of the fox farm Dirty Dozen, but don't forget that this is a great nutrient line up for  a beginner grower or even a first-timer. And if you don't want to spend the money on the whole lineup, you can just start with their basic Trio which is the Big Bloom, the tiger bloom and the grow big. So then you can just go from there and add on you know one product at a time. Also don't forget to check out our 2 week free trial to those step by step grow  videos at this link right here. And as always I really appreciate you guys watching today's video, I hope you enjoyed it until next time…
 

Happy Growing!

Growing Cannabis with CO2: Increase Bud Size and Speed up Vegetative Growth

Growing with CO2 Intro + Ex-Hale CO2 Bag Review


What up cannabis Growers and welcome back for another lit episode of GreenBox Grown! now in today's video I will be covering CO2 use in the grow room, and how you can use it to speed up and get rapid vegetative growth as well as increase your bud sizes and yields. So today's videos going to be an in-depth explanation and overview of how to use CO2 and the different options and kind of how it's going to help you increase your bud growth production as well as  Vegetative growth. Now you'll see here I have an Ex-Hale Bag, which is kind of an entry-level option for setting up some CO2 in your grow room. I will also cover the other options that are available.

 Now as I was saying, today is just kind of an overview and intro to the use of CO2 with growing cannabis, but if you do want to see the kind of results you can get and how I use it through an entire grow series. I will be having some videos put up shortly on my website where you can watch day-by-day how this can help your plants. And if you want to check that out, just visit the link right here and you will need to subscribe to our premium content videos. But again if you do that it comes with a two-week free trial so you can try them out free of charge before paying anything, you can cancel at anytime. 

Now before I get started with today's video I do want to mention that CO2 is not like a miracle fix or something you can just add to any grow room and instantly get amazing results and increases in your yields. Now it is something that a beginner Grower can use, but I don't recommend it because it is only going to work really well first if you have everything down pat in terms of your grow light, your nutrients, your medium, you know watering schedule and conditions.  If certain things are off in the grow room before adding the CO2, the CO2 isn't really going to make much of a difference. 

So CO2 is really just a thing that puts your plants over the top once you have maxed all the other options out. So definitely keep that in mind before you set up a CO2 system or even invested these bags. Now these bags do work really well if you are at that level, so now let's go check out some more details about CO2 in the grow room, and how you can utilize it to max out your yields!

All right guys, so you are probably wondering what's going on with this Ex-Hale bag here, basically it looks like a bag full of dirt or some sort of sledge Or something like that. So with this is actually is some sort of fungus, mushroom type of growth going on, and one of its outputs is CO2. This bag will actually last for up to a I believe this one's a year, yeah this one is actually they are 6 months to a year. I believe this one's the 365 which means it will last for a whole year, but anyways that grows will continue to produce a lot of CO2 coming out of there.

 And then actually right here is actually vent where you will see the CO2 is going to come out of. and so you will see the vent right here, and so if you have a CO2 meter you can put it right by here to get the best readings of what kind of pp on the levels it is putting out. But anyways you will see this is a little hanger for hanging it in your grow room and we will go over that in more detail later on in this video.

 But anyways before we get into details on how CO2 is really going to help with your plants, I first want to explain why it is important to increase the CO2 levels in your grow tent. So as you guys no plans actually use CO2 like humans use oxygen, so plants breathe in CO2 and breathe out oxygen. Humans do the exact opposite, but the CO2 AIDS in the photosynthesis process so increasing the amount of CO2 in there will allow for there to be more energy to be produced in the plant. And that will lead to faster vegetative growth as well as bigger buds during the flowering phase. So on planet Earth here in our atmosphere the average CO2 levels or around 400 ppm's which isn't harmful to humans obviously. 

But once you get around 3000 PPM of CO2 in the atmosphere that is when it becomes toxic for us to breathe in. Now plants have been tested to be able to benefit from CO2 levels as high as or even higher than 10000 PPM, and I obviously that isn't going to be possible in your grow room is that would be really dangerous to have. What Growers have found to work really well as to have a range of around 1200 ppm's to 2000 PPM in the grow room. And that will really help with increasing Bud growth as well as yields. And gross have actually experienced up to 25% extra yields just from using higher CO2 levels. Now something I kind of alluded to earlier on in the video is that increasing the CO2 levels alone is not enough to get these increased year olds. So you want to make sure everything in the tent like you know the climate, lights, nutrients everything like I was mentioning before. 

You want to make sure those are all on point and you got them set up and working really well. Because if you do not have those set up properly it is not going to matter how much CO2 you add into the grow room it will not really help the plant. Another thing that is really important as you will want to increase the amount of watts of lighting you have in the grow room once you add the CO2. The reason you have this is because it isn't the CO2 by itself that increases the bud growth, but like I was saying in that photosynthesis process it actually makes it so the plant is able to create more energy. So without that extra lighting to help it turn that CO2 into energy, all it is going to give the plant is CO2 toxicity. And the reason behind that is without the extra lighting it can't use that extra amount of CO2 you provided the plants. 

So to give you guys a loose comparison, it is kind of like with people taking steroids and not working out. They are not going to see any benefits or larger muscles from that process. And it's just like the plants, you can give them all the CO2 that you want but if you don't increase the amount of energy and power that they are receiving from the lights, they are not going to be able to use that CO2 to create more energy and growth with the plants. Obviously comparing steroid use to growing cannabis is pretty different and wild but just kind of a good analogy there for you guys to use as a comparison. 

Another thing does important to realize it when you increase the level of CO2 in the grow room, the plants are going to be able to handle extra heat and actually the higher temperatures are going to be preferred by the plants with those new CO2 levels. What is really convenient since you probably are going to be adding more lights or turning the light dials up higher, they are probably going to be putting out a little more heat anyways. But anyways a temperature around 85 to 90 degrees maybe 80 to 90 Fahrenheit is What Growers have actually found to be really good when you increase those CO2 levels to that 1200 to 2000 PPM range. I already covered the CO2 bag here, but there are also other options such as compressed CO2 or even a CO2 generator. Now those are definitely more expensive options which is why I said this is more of the entry-level option.

 But if you are willing to invest, definitely worth going with either the compressed where the CO2 generator. When setting up your CO2 system in the tent, it is important that the entry level of the CO2 is from the top of the tent. Reason being is CO2 is a heavier gas than oxygen so if you want it essentially rain down on the plants as they call it or just have it so it is coming out on top of the tent and then falling down on top of the plant so they can breathe it in that way. If you just put the CO2 in the bottom of the tent or enters at the bottom of the tent, it is just going to stay down below there the plants are not going to be able to breathe it in. 

So that is where this hanger comes into place, it allows you to hang it from the top of your grow tent. And I recommend putting it in the opposite corner of where your carbon filter is, so that that filter doesn't just suck it out of the tent right away. So that concludes our entry level overview of CO2 used in the grow room and how it can help increase vegetative growth as well as Bud yields. A couple things I want you guys to take away from this video. First off remember that it is really important to have everything else in the grow room or your setup to be on point and perfect so that there isn't anything else that you can perfect or increase the quality of before adding the CO2. 

Because again this is something you want to use just to put your plans over the top, you've already maxed out all of the other options for increasing the quality and growth in your plants and so now you just need that one added supplement in that is where the CO2 comes in. And like I was saying if your plants are not doing well or you do not have that grow room dialed-in properly, CO2 is not going to help them Out and it actually will probably just harm the plants because they are just going to get a little toxic from that CO2 and not being able to use it all properly. Also remember that it is really important to  increase the amount of lighting in the grow room so the plants can use that extra CO2 that is in there. 

And then also to increase that temperature if the grow lights are not doing that. Again you want to be in that 80 to upper 80 range  Fahrenheit out at 90 degrees. And then finally I  highly recommend starting off with one of these CO2 grow bags before investing into one of those CO2 systems like one of those compress CO2 setup or CO2 generators. Reason being is these are much cheaper and they are just going to show you what kind of results you can get from the CO2 before having to spend a bunch of money on it.

 Alright grower so that concludes today's video and overview of how to use CO2 in your grow room to maximize bud yields as well as increase your vegetative growth. Now I will be uploading a few new grow series here including a gorilla glue Autoflower one as well as a DWC grow out in my big tent. But I will be utilizing these Ex-Hale CO2 bags in there so you can watch day by day how does it benefit the plant. And again if you want to check out those videos you'll need to subscribe to the premium content section of our website. And you can do that right here via this link coming again it is $14.99/mo.

Week 2 of Flower for the NukeHeads Grow Series (Week 9 Overall)

Bud Development starting to Take OFF!


 
 

 What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for the most lit cannabis growing Channel! Now today kicks off Week 9 of that NukeHeads grow series which is also the second week of flower, so I am very excited for that Because I am definitely getting some good development going on at those Bud sites. So you will see that in this week's videos we are starting to get those white pistils going and hopefully by the end of the week we will have a nice little bud growing right at the tippy-top of all of those plants. 

Now if you have been following along with these videos and you feel you still need a little more help, you can sign up via this link for one-on-one help with myself where I will help you personally over the phone each day, teaching you what to do and kind of helping you through those problems and issues that you are having with your cannabis plants. I can also show you some different tips and tricks that will help increase the quality of yields that you get from them. Also don't forget to check out our merch and clothing at the GreenBox Grown website under merch and smoke of course and now that you guys know what we are doing in today's video let's get started with day 1 of the week!

Alright so here we are out in the garage for day 1 of week 9 which is also day one for week 2 of flower. And you can see the plants are still blowing up in terms of vegetative growth you can see how thick the canopy has gotten already since I trimmed it up last. Which I believe was the second or third time, and I am still removing little leaves or big leaves actually, big fan leaves  here and there, just throughout the day and the week. Just a little bit at a time. So you can see these two back plants are blowing up in height and also In Bloom growth or flower growth.

So you can see all of the plants actually are starting to sprout a good amount of pistols at the very top of the plants. And starting to get a lot of good smells going on in here as well which is great. But probably by the end of this week we will have some decent bloom or flower growth going on, it's just going to take a little more about transitional phase to get them going. But again still growing and terms of vegetative growth and looking really healthy. All of the plants of course are great and even the one Skittles plant in the back right here that is getting towered over by the rest of them.

 So a quick look below the canopy, you can see everything is holding up really well in terms of the lollipopping and trimming, and the  branches are looking really healthy, you can see how big the trunks are getting along with those roots, they are just absolutely massive. So really stoked on that, they are not ready yet for a watering either so we will hold off on that as well. But definitely seeing some good Bloom growth going at the very top of the nodes here. So very stoked on that, and again all of these are showing only female parts, no male Parts going on so that is a good sign as well. That is really it for today's update and I will be back in another 24 hours for day 2 of the week but until then, Happy growing!

24-hours what's good Growers, we are back here another 24 hours later for day 2 of week 9. And ladies were actually ready for a watering today so I gave them their first plane pH watering since that last nutrient feeding. So each plant took about a gallon and a half at this point, some a little less than others but yeah just about a gallon and a half. So now what I am really excited to show you guys about, we are definitely in that flowering stage at this point. No more longer in the transitional phase. And let me show you what that looks like. So you will see up at the bud sites here, you will see there is a lot of pistils growing and forming right at the bud sites. And they are starting to form all the way down those branches, so you can see all those nice white pistils all the way up and down.

 And there is even starting to be a little stronger of a scent going on now that those are starting to come in more frequently throughout the different tops. So you can see there is Big Mama, that big Grape Ape in the back middle and you can see her pistols are coming in thicker already just because she is the closest to the light so she is going to have the fastest growth. So very excited about that, that flowering growth is coming and really nicely throughout the whole tent and you can see all of the leaves on the plants, you can see there is no nitrogen toxicity no nutrient deficiencies Burns and no damage to leaves whatsoever. 

You can see nothing on the tips were edges or anything, they are just all the hundred percent healthy so that is great  especially because we are in flower. That just means the quality of the bud is going to be that much higher and the yields are going to be that much bigger. So that is pretty much it for today's update, I will be doing some to foliation today. So I mentioned I'll be doing a little bit here and there throughout the flowering. And you can see look how thick the canopy is gone at this point. So what I will be removing at this point the leaves kind of like the leaves that are laying on top of the other ones, or just really big fan leaves like that one right there That are blocking a lot of light to the lower canopy.

 So again leaves that are laying on top of each other, you can remove those, and again only fan leaves, none of the bud sites or anything like that especially since we are now in flower. So we are removing those big fan leaves and again the ones that are laying on top of each other and then that will be it. So that is it again for today's update, and I will be back in another 24 hours for day 3 of the week. All right peace guys!

What's good Growers, we are back again and it is now day 3 of the week in flower is really starting to take off on these plants so you can see lots of pistols  even more than before are forming at the tops of the plants and you can see not only has that vegetative growth continue to grow crazy but they are really starting to Bud well at those various tops. So let me give you a quick close up on the big Grape Ape Bud that is already starting to form up here in the back. You can see it right here in the middle of that top and it's starting to form all the way down that main branch so it's going to be a nice big bud back there on both of those ladies actually.

And you can just see the plant is really now starting to turn off on the vegetative growth and is starting to focus more on that flower growth only. You can tell that by how all of these different tops are kind of nice and skinny and standing up straight up, focusing more on thickening up that Branch so we can hold a bigger bud. So we will still be doing some to foliation throughout the grow here and there but right now is not really necessary as all of the plants are looking really good and trimmed up. And it doesn't seem like there's too much below the canopy that is being blocked out by the Light. So let me give you guys another good close up here on this little bud site.

 It's really starting to form nicely and let's see if I can give you guys an even better close up. So you can see more pistols are forming and they are really thickening up and they are really going all the way down the trunk of the branch, so that means it's going to be a nice and big bud. So that is it for todays update and I will be back here in another 24 hours for day for the week. All right peace guys!

Alright Growers we are back here for day 4 of the week and they are actually ready for their next watering so that is going to be there second plane pH watering sense that last nutrients feeding. And in the meantime let me just give you guys some nice close-ups of those buds and how they are starting to develop. We are getting some really nice pistol development right at the tops there so let me see okay there you go you can see, let's get it to focus. 

You can see how they are starting to form almost like that white fuzz ball looking shape right at the center of the tops and we are getting that really nicely throughout all of those different branches all the way down. So that is really good so far in terms of Bud development and now I am just going to give them their second playing pH watering and that'll really be it for today's update. And I will be back here in another 24 hours for the next day of the week but like I was saying, I'm just going to give them that watering and then that's really it. Alright peace guys!

What up Growers we are now back here for the NukeHeads grow And day five is now upon us. So lots of good development going on at the bud sites, you can really tell a big difference each day now in terms of how many pistols and how big they are really getting so really taking off in terms of that bud growth. And pretty soon here we should start seeing some nice buds forming into those nice Bud like shaped. Now yesterday I did that watering, so the soil is still pretty moist meaning they don't need a watering today, and I also added a fan here on the floor down below the canopy.

The reason being, the canopy above has gotten so big and thick that are float isn't really getting down to this area, so it is a good idea to circulate the area around here because if it does stay stagnant it is going to attract pests as well as mold and possibly other issues like that. So I just have this little fan going lightly, does not blowing too hard and you do not want to be messing with the buds or the leaves up in the canopy. You just want to be circulating that are down around here. 

So I also remove the fan that I had up in here and replaced it with the smaller one right here, that guy still pretty powerful but you can see it is not blocking the light like the fan was over here. So not as much light was getting down to the corner of this plant here so I wanted to fix that and that is why I decided to fix that fan. Not a big deal at all you just want to make sure that the fan isn't blowing too hard on the plants and the way you can tell is by the leaves and how much they are shaking. 

So you can see these guys are lightly, very lightly fluttering and that is what you want especially during flower. You don't want them shaking as much once they start  developing buds, because that can affect the growth. So that is really it for today's update, again just really stoked on this new development at the bud sites so you can see how good they are looking. And really a night and day difference in terms of Bud growth from day to day. Now one last thing I wanted to show you guys before I go is I was telling you guys about how leaves will lay on top of Bud sites and cover them up and how it is a good idea to remove those. 

So you can see this fan leave  right here is covering up my Pineapple Chunk or one of its own tops actually in the back there. And you can see that leave their is laying on a bud site right there right below it,  so you can kind of see it's pistols poking through so what I'm going to do is remove this main leaf that is laying right on top of it and then also this guy right over here on top of it so that we can just completely expose light to it. 

Now there are few other ones going on in here and you'll even see the leaves growing into each other and pushing each other in a different directions, so those are good to remove as well because they are just blocking light and also making it harder for those Bud sites to grow. So I will be removing those leaves as well as others that are covering up bud sites and I recommend you guys do the same as well each day, just kind of checking out for a little bit of those each day, just kind of checking out and looking for a little bit of those here and there and removing as necessary. Now you do not need to do a massive defoliation everyday, I'm just talking about a few leaves here and there as needed. But definitely keep an eye out for that. So I will be back here in 24 hours for day 6 of the week, alright peace guys!

What up Growers, we are back here for days 6 in the plants are looking amazing right now. That bud development like I keep saying is really starting to take off and look at how tall does back to plants are getting. I've got here on the left my Pineapple Chunk and in the back row again is the NukeHeads row, so I've got my NukeHeads Pineapple Chunk, and then the NukeHeads Grape Ape. And I mean, these two plans not only are they the two tallest plants by far but they are also the farthest I would say along in terms of Bud development. 

So you can see how nice those pistols are looking right at the tops of the bug sites, and really honestly look at all of these talks. I mean they're really filling out densely with those pistols so I mean I really think these Electric Sky LEDs are really doing a lot of good for all of the plants in here. Because you can see all of them are equally as far as long, the plants or the tops that are on the way outside kind of not getting the main light, those are a little less further along but that is as expected. 

And again look at how tall and healthy they all are, no deficiencies or Burns or anything on all of the fan leaves so they're all looking really healthy. And I've got again that fan going down here to keep a little extra circulation down here below the canopy because with no air circulation it makes it easier for pests to get in there and land on the plant. So keeping that are circulating will make sure that they are not down there and no pests are going to infiltrate the soil or the lower parts of the plant. And then it's also going to help prevent spores of mold from Landing down there from it getting too humid and causing  that to form. So good little Health tip right there is to keep a little fan blowing down there. 

Nothing too strong because you don't want to be messing up the leaves or anything like that. Now the plants are ready for their next watering so I will be giving them their third plane pH watering since their last nutrients feeding and each plant is probably going to Be getting a gallon two more like a gallon and a half per plant. so I wanted to get a good amount of runoff now that we are in flower, and they seem to really be liking that as I am seeing some really amazing differences in their growth each day. So let's do a quick little update on that nutrient comparison between the dirty dozen buy Fox Farms and Then the flower power package by NukeHeads. so I would definitely say that the back plans which are getting the NukeHeads  nutrients, they are much taller and thicker with vegetative growth.

 So I would say that definitely NukeHeads won in terms of that. Now with the buds I would say all of the plants are pretty much as far along as each other. And one doesn't seem further along than the other in terms of the fox farm Plants verse that back row of NukeHeads. but this is still there really early stages of flower development so I'm going to give them a few more weeks before I really decide. Hopefully we will see a different size between the bud size and density between the two so we can get a good look at some differences. So that is it for today's update and I'm going to give them that plane pH watering now, and then I will be back here in 24 hours for the last day of the week. All right peace guys.

Alright Growers we are back here for the last day of week 9 for this NukeHeads grow series. And the flowering growth is continuing to take off. You can see you can see all the different tops, the main ones at top at least are filling up really really well with a ton of pistols and growth, so this is the last day of the week, week 3 of flower which is next week, they're just going to continue to blow up and probably fill out this whole canopy with Bud growth.

 So you can see the taller ones of course are the furthest along and getting the best development so far as expected. And it also looks like their growth has leveled off in terms of vegetative growth Because it does not seem like they are getting any closer to those electric sky lights. 

So let me just give you guys a couple more nice close-ups here, you can see, let me get it to focus, you can see how nice those pistols are looking. There is no burn and they are just standing straight up and they are nice and white and thick. If at this stage they were already curled over and kind of Browning or turning colors, that means they are burning because they are too close to the light or because it is too hot in the grow room. So very stoked and even the ones that are up close to those lights, you can see they aren’t burned or anything. So these lights are really gentle on them even when they are that close. 

So that is really it for today's update, oh yeah they are also ready for their next watering, so that's going to be there next nutrient feeding so what I will be doing today is feeding them week 6 from the fox farm Dirty Dozen schedule and that is only for the front row of plants of course because those are the ones getting the fox farm lineup. And I will be doing that at full strength with a teaspoon of Cal Mag as well per gallon of water. So the week 6 mix and then for the back row I will be doing the NukeHeads plutonium bloom mix again which is about one and a half Scoops per gallon of water. And then I will also be mixing in that one teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon for that.

Let's do a comparison really quick on the bud growth thus far for the front and back, to be honest I think they look pretty comparable, the back plants are obviously the tallest, but you can see these front guys that are getting the dirty dozen by foxfarm there getting a lot of good growth at the bud sites as well. So it is hard to say if there's a difference just yet, the back plants are definitely bigger. But Bud growth is pretty much the same all the way across the board, so I will also be doing a little defoliation today. So I will probably be removing 5% of the fan leaves just because they are getting pretty crowded in here at this point in there a lot of leaves laying on top of each other so. I will be back here shortly with the next week's update, but until then Happy growing!

Alright GreenBox Growers, that officially concludes week 9 of this NukeHeads grow series. And again that is also week 2 of flower. now these guys are way further ahead than I ever thought they could be this quickly into the flowering phase, so there's Electric Sky LEDs by the Green Sunshine Company are really blowing up these plants and the doing an amazing job so super stoked on that. And of course I will be back shortly with week 3 of flower for this Grow Series where they are going to take off even further. So get excited for that, and as always thank you guys for watching and until next time…
 

Happy Growing!!!

Week 11 of Vegetation for the Cloning & Mother Plant Series

Week 11 of Vegetation for the Cloning & Mother Plant Series

Last Week of Vegetation for the Cloning Grow Series!


 
 

What is up GreenBox Growers, and welcome back for that week 11 of vegetation video for the cloning and mother plant how to grow series! Now this is officially the last week of vegetation as I was saying in the last week's video and after this week we will be flipping the ladies into flower. Now the clones have gotten a good size growth going already, so I'm  hoping after this last week they will be perfectly sized for flipping to flower. This week I will just be covering the watering schedules as usual as well as what steps you'll need to take to prepare them so that when it comes time to changing that light schedule up for flower, the plants are ready to go. 

And as always I want to remind you guys to check out my patreon page for one-on-one grow guidance. And  basically I'll be helping you over the phone each day, shown you specifically what to do with your plants to get the same results as of these videos. Also don't forget to check out our merch under the merch and smoke section at GreenBoxGrown.com, and now that you guys know what we are doing in this weeks video let's get started with day 1 of the week.

Alright guy so here we are out in the garage for day 1 of the week and you will see everybody is doing really well, especially the mother plant. But one thing I want to  point out is this is just 24 hours since that second nutrients feeding that I did for the Clones here and just look at it how they've just about doubled in size since the last night. Not only did the leaves get a lot bigger but there's a lot of node growth going on Under The Canopy. And lots of new tops that are making it through the canopy like that one there. 

You can see a few coming up over there, so I'm going to do a little bending to make sure that those get some light exposed to them, and I will be missing all of the plants here as well today. No watering needed since everyone got some yesterday, but very excited on this new growth because it is the last week of veg like I was saying during the intro. So it looks like these guys will have some good size to them before I flip them to flower, which means we'll be getting a decent yield from them. So I'm really stoked on that, and also as always I'm stoked on the mother plant and how well she is doing. 

So going to mist them now for their daily misting since I'm just doing one daily since it is the last week of veg. And that is really it So just make sure your temperature and humidity are on point and your plants will be nice and happy just like these ladies here. All right I will be back in another 24 hours for day 2 of the week, alright peace guys!

 Alright Growers, we are back here for day 2 of week 11 and first off I want to mention that for the bloom beast light it is now at 100% for the seedling as well as the vegetation dial, then once we flip it into flour next week, that is when I will turn the flowering switch on. Same thing for the Mars Hydro light, I just have the bed switch on right now, it doesn't have the dial so it is just bro and flower, and I will be turning on that second one next week as well.

So another thing I wanted to bring up, for the Clones I'm not growing them for very long and too big for plants like this one just because I don't have the space in this tent. But with a regular grow you could totally grow these as long as you want in the vegetative stage.

So don't think with clones you have to veg them for just a couple quick weeks, and then flip them into flower. That is not how it is at all. I just did that for this gross series just to show you guys how to get them to grow effectively, and then I am growing them as big as I can but the space I have in this tent. And that is why I am flipping them early, so that is really it for today's update they don't need any water, I will be giving them a misting, just 2 mistings a day actually just one misting.  

I am going to cut it back since we are almost towards the middle end of the week. And then also added in this carbon filter over here it is a 4-inch filter, just because we are about to flip to flower, so I want to keep that smell under control. But you can see it is not blocking any of the lights or footprint of the lights. And then I have the ducting coming out of the top of the tent right here, into that inline fan that is pulling the air out. So I will be back for days 3 in another 24 hours but until then, Happy growing!

Alright so we are now back here for day 3 a week 11 and everyone is actually ready for their next watering today, so the cleanse got their next plane pH watering which was their second one since the last nutrient feeding and then the mother plant got her first plane pH watering since her last nutrients feeding. So I gave her about a little over a gallon, and then each of these guys I split between the five of them I believe it was about 2 gallons of water. So you can see they're getting nice and bushy, the Clones are that is. And the mother plant is holding up really well as also. Just a few more days here before we flip them, and actually here tomorrow I am going to be doing some to foliation in here on the Clones, as well as a mother plant.

 So I don't think I'll be doing a lollipopping on the Clones, just removing some of their fan leaves too kind of thin things out, and allow light to reach those lower Bud sites. But for the mother plant I already lollipopped her, and I will just be doing the same thing in terms of thinning her out this time around. so I will be giving them another misting As I am still doing that once a day. And then that is pretty much it for today's update, so I will be back here in another 24 hours for that defoliation, but until then Happy growing. 

Really quick I actually made a mistake, it was actually the mother plant that was getting Her second plane pH watering since the last nutrient feeding, and then it was the Clones that got their first plane pH watering since their last nutrients feeding. So I mix those up earlier in the video, just wanted to let you know what the correct one was. 

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back another 24 hours later here for day 4 of the week. Now it is time for that defoliation, and I will be doing it to both the Clones as well as the mother plant, for the mother plant it will mainly be trimming some of those fan leaves out through the canopy just certain things out and To allow light to penetrate better through there, as I did already lollipop her a few weeks ago as you guys probably remember. You can definitely see the trunk is still really fattening up and it is even bigger than last time I showed you.

And with defoliating the Clones that is going to be a little more severe than what I'm doing to the mother plant I'm Since this will be the first time I trimmed them up. But I will be removing any growth that did not make it up to the canopy just yet or doesn't look like it will by the time I flipped them. And then I will also be removing excess fan leaves so it really just trimming that lower third to 2/3s up, and then just finding out some of the fan leaves for the Clones. And I am going to go do that and then I will be right back to show you how those results look.

So before I go do that let me just show you guys a clone so you can see how big and bushy they got before I defoliate them. Again I think this is only like 2 or 3 weeks and these pots here so they really vegged a decent amount for such a short. Of time. And you can see they really got some good growth going on here below the canopy so you'll see like this talk right here, so once I clean things out that will also help a lot with those branches getting up to the canopy. So now that you guys have seen how they look before the deflation, I am going to go do that and then I will be back to show you guys what they look like after.

Here we are right after finishing up that defoliation, and you can see I really took a lot of us fan leaves off but really importantly I did not remove any bud sites. So fan leaves are just going to be these leaves right here that come straight from the main stock or one of the side tops, a bud site is going to be something like right here where it has growth it is more of a top that has different leaves coming out of it, let me get a better focus shot. So here you go you'll see little pistols and little leaves like that, but essentially it is just the top of the node and that is the bud site. So you do not want to remove those window fully it in, but fan leaves are okay. 

 

So you can see I've got a really good amount of leaves that I've removed Here, and Now most importantly with the Clones you will see all of those different tops are exposed to light and they are a lot thinner now because there were a lot of big fan leaves that were covering up the lower parts of the plant. So it seems counterintuitive because you are removing the leaves which you would think would help the buds, but actually removing them is going to greatly increase your yields and help those lower branches develop buds that otherwise wouldn't develop with those big fan leaves covering them. 

So you can see looking down on the mother plant here, you can see between the different tops where before it was kind of like once you went down a couple inches right from the top of the canopy, it was solid foliage. And you could not see any further down. Now you can see all the way down to the soil which is what you want because those tops are now going to be getting sunlight all the way down through the center of that canopy periods and not just at the top and what that means is you will have nice long colas Growing down those branches instead of little buds right on top. 

So that completes  the defoliate in process for the Clones as well as the mother plant. And I will be back here in another 24 hours to show you how they react, they should be really nice and perky by tomorrow, and should have a  decent amount of growth going already. All right peace guys!

Alright Growers we are back here another 24 hours later for day 5 of the week, that means it is also a day after that defoliation that I did. So you can see all of the different tops and branches that are growing on the mother plans was the Clones, they are really distinct and separate from each other so you can see the whole path of the branch going all the way to the main stock. And that is really good because what that means is there is now space and enough light getting down through that canopy, that these branches are all going to develop nice buds, going from the top all the way down to the bottom. 

We're just before only enough light was reaching just the tips of those branches so that was going to be the only area where good bud development would be going on. So you can see it's almost like These guys are skeletons now you can see the bones of them so to speak or you can see all of the branches were before it just looked like a bunch of leaves and foliage. And same thing goes for the mother plant over here, you can see also through the top of the canopy you can see down to the soil like I was saying before. 

And that's really good so they have all reacted really well to the de foliation which is great, you can see yesterday the leaves looked a little stressed out but not today they are perked back up and looking good and healthy. Just Checked the soil both the mother plant and the Clones are ready, so that means the Clones will be getting their second plane pH watering and then the mother plant will be getting her third since the last nutrients feeding. So all of them are getting the plane pH water and then I'll be giving them a good misting and that will be it for today. So I will be back here in another 24 hours is that is it for today's update and until then, Happy growing!

Alright we are back here 24 hours later for day 6 of the week, and you know it that means, tomorrow will be the last week of Edge and then time for flower. So very excited to get these ladies flipped over into flower, because I do want to see how they bud and sense that defoliation they are all looking really happy and perky and like I was saying you can just see all those little tops and they're going to really blow up now with some massive colas. 

So I got the light, the bloom Beast, at 100% for both of veg dial as well as the seedling dial, and then once I flip them I will also turn on that flower dial, probably starting at around 20% while keeping the other two at 100. So that is how it works, you don't want to turn off the  previous dial once you go to the next stage. You keep that dial on and then just turn the next one on, and then with the Mars Hydro reflector, all I will be doing is flipping on that bloom switch while keeping the growth switch on as well. So that extra boost of power will really help these ladies get nice dense colas.

 So no need to water today, but I will be misting them and then that is pretty much it. So let me just give you some nice close-ups of this big top right here. And you can see they are all looking really healthy, no nutrient burn or deficiencies or light stress going on with any of the plants actually. 

So that is really important to, you don't want to have your plants all stressed out right as you are going into flower, is really good to have them come of obviously you never want to stress them, but if possible you try to do the stressing earlier on and veg and then try to get them nice and straight and healthy right before you flip them, as that will help with the bud quality as well. So that is it for today's update and I will be back in 24 hours for day 7 of the week, right peace guys!

All right guys we are back here for the last day of week 11 which also happens to be the last day of vegetation for these plants. So I will be flipping them to 12/1212  starting tomorrow, so that is 12 hours off in 12 hours on for light each day. And that will officially begin the flowering phase, so today they are ready or the mother plant is ready for her next watering which is going to be a nutrient feeding. So it will be her last mix of vegetative nutrients, and I will be doing that week 4 from the fox farm Dirty Dozen because that is the last mix for vegetation there and I will just be doing that at full strength plus one teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water just as usual.

 So that is what I will be watering for her today and then I will be giving them a misting for these clones over here, they are not ready for a watering just yet. They are still a little moist in the soil, but this will also be the last day that I mist these plants. since we are starting them in flour tomorrow and I don't like two mist them during flower. So again starting tonight, I'm going to switch them to that 12/12 lighting schedule and then for this Mars Hydro LED I'm going to start turning on the flower switch or I will have the flower switch with the veg twitch on at all times now when the lights are on.

 And then with the bloom Beast I will have the seedling dial at 100% as well as the veg dial at 100%, And then now I will also have that flower dial on at 20%. So that is it for today's update and I will be back for a week 1 of flour which will be week 12 of this overall gross series. And until then Happy growing!

All right GreenBox Growers, that officially concludes week 11 of the how to clone and grow a mother plant grow series! and of course that also means we have now concluded the vegetative stage for these plants, and are now flipping them over into flower. So I have now got those lights on the 12 12 cycle, or 12 hours on and 12 hours off each day. So we will start to see those buds develop soon. I will be back shortly here with week 12 which is also going to be the first week of flower as I was just mentioning, so get excited for that. And in the meantime, thank you guys for watching, I hope you enjoyed this video and then till next time…

Happy Growing!

GreenBox Grown 12 Step Weed Grow Guide: From Seed to Harvest

Easily Grow Quality Cannabis at Home!


What up future cannabis Growers, and welcome to the most lit cannabis growing Channel! Now my name is Dylan, and today I'm going to be giving you guys the official GreenBox Grown 12 step guide to learning how to easily grow quality cannabis from the comfort of your home. Today I'm going to be giving you guys the quick basics of everything you need to know before you get  your grow started, so you can have everything together so you can have a successful Harvest your first time around. Now this guide is going to break everything up into really simple steps that you can follow along one by one, so that even if you have zero experience with growing cannabis you can still have  a very successful Harvest your first time around.

 Now if you are looking for a more detailed step-by-step way to learn how to grow cannabis, I do have those types of videos, which you can sign up for a via this link right here. And again those come with a two-week free trial so if you sign up today, you will not have to pay anything at all and you will have two full weeks free of charge to try out all of the videos. And you will have full access to our entire grow video library during that. Alright guys so now that you know what we are doing and today's video, let's get started with step 1 on that guide of how to easily grow quality cannabis from the comfort of your home!

 Alright folks so we are out here in my garage where we have two of my current grows going, and we are going to be covering Step 1 of this grow guide which is of course selecting the location of your grow. So the first step to that is deciding are we going to be doing an indoor grow or an outdoor grow? Now if you do decide to do outdoor a highly recommend going with a green house because that is going to be the best way to prevent any issues such as pests or mold from getting on the plants and messing up your yields. Now you will also want to have a place that is going to have a lot of direct sunlight for that grow. Because in a greenhouse, obviously you can have supplemental lighting hanging up in there by having grow lights in the tent. 

But you want to be mainly using that Sun, so be sure to pick an area that is outside and direct sunlight for most of the day, if you don't have that then I would highly suggest and recommend growing indoors.  Now the other reason I really like indoors is I feel I can get better quality results. And here is actually a current grow that I'm doing right now, a photoperiod grow. But I find it is a lot easier to maintain your plants actually because you do not have to counteract the weather and make sure that the conditions are always on point inside the greenhouse. With a indoor tent, that is not affected because you are inside the house so the temperature is pretty constant. 

So you so you can pretty much just automate and set up everything and it really a hassle-free way of growing. Now Outdoors is a really great way to grow in this very environmentally friendly, it is just a little more challenging to get that top quality product. So there is one of my grows and then in this tent I've actually got my other Indoor grow which is my mother plant and cloning how to grow Series. So this one I was teaching how to not only grow a mother plant but then how to grow her as well. And then once we cloned her, we grew those plants into a decent-size plant and now we are flowering them all together. 

So that is step 1 on the guide, deciding whether you want to grow indoors or Outdoors. Again my recommendation is in door because it is going to be easier and a lot of people think of outdoor in a greenhouse will be cheaper. And it is if you are just going one hundred percent natural you know no supplemental lighting or any thing like that. But if you are somewhere where you are going to need fans or maybe a heater inside. It can get pretty costly trying to maintain ideal temperatures and conditions in that Greenhouse. So that is the first thing to think about.

All right, now we are inside upstairs in my bedroom for step 2 on the grow guide. And that is do you have to do a stealth grow or can you be open about it. So I am going to be showing you guys in this step, how to be stealth for those of you who have to be secretive and hidden about it. Now if you do have to be stealth it is a good idea to grow indoors. It can be done outside in a greenhouse if you can hide it along the side of your house. Or if you have a large property, but at night especially if you are using supplemental lighting, it is going to be pretty obvious. So here I've got my indoor grow setup, it is a stealth grow in my closet and let me just show you guys really quick. So closets work really well as well as armoires and other sorts of big furniture that you are not using and can hard stuff inside of.

 But anyways, you will see I've got over here and nice Little Seedling and clone tent for getting the lady started.  And then I've got my nice 2X4 vegetation tent right here. So let me just open that up really quickly you'll see I have some nice Gorilla Glue Auto flowers growing here at the moment. We just started then a few days ago, so you can see they are still pretty small and in that seedling, early early seedling stage. Just popped up above ground like a day or two ago, so this is the stealth grow. There are a few components with being stealth with the grow. First off, and having your grow hidden in a location that is low traffic and isn't going to have a lot of people coming in and out. 

You don't want to have it out in the open, so  so that is why I suggest a closet or some sort of furniture that you can put it inside of. Obviously it's going to have to be a larger piece for that. But one of the biggest components about being stealth is about who you tell. So if you tell a bunch of your friends and family and stuff like that, it is going to be a little more easy for people to find out about it. We're if you just keep it a secret to yourself, it'll be a lot easier to keep it a secret. So first step, finding that location you can hide it in. Second Step, keeping the smell under control as well as the noise.

So you're going to want to use appliances that are low wattage and aren't super loud or powerful so that you cannot hear them once the closet is all closed up. And then you will also want to make sure that you have a carbon filter system  set up in here so that you can keep that smell down. So that is going to be the biggest thing or biggest indicator giving you away is if you have that smell of nice bud just billowing out of your tent. It's going to be pretty obvious what's going on, so Step 2 of the official GreenBox Grown Grow guide, is how to keep you're set up stealth if need be.

Now step 3 is all about selecting the genetics you are going to be growing with, so you are going to want to decide if first off will you be doing a photoperiod grow, or will you be doing autoflowers. Now I always recommend for a beginner grow or first-timer to  start off with Autoflower, and I'm just going to head over to our seed banks page right here so I can show you more details on that. But autoflowers definitely recommended for a beginner because it takes less knowledge or effort and it is a lot easier to maintain and get good results from. So once you have selected whether or not to do that, you will want to choose a strain.

 So I am not staying photoperiods are impossible to grow it's just easier to do an Autoflower. If you are feeling up for the challenge you can definitely try out your first time photoperiod, it is very doable, you just want to make sure you do your research first. Now next you are going to want to decide if you are going to be doing a high THC or CBD strain. And you can choose either one, they are both available when it comes to seed selections. I highly recommend checking out Growers choice seeds if you are looking for some high-cbd. But anyways once you have done that, all you have to do is decide on your strain and you are good to go.

 So for example right now I've got a Limoncello Haze grow going, And those seeds came from Amsterdam marijuana seeds, aka AMS. And that was the mother plant in Cologne series, those were the Limoncello Haze. And then the other tent in the garage there we're actually some seeds from NukeHeads which I don't have listed here, but that was the Grape Ape, Skittles, as well as the Pineapple Chunk in there. And then upstairs you guys saw I have here from Growers Choice seeds, I have some Gorilla Glue Autoflower. So the two downstairs grows were Photoperiod, and then the one up here was an Autoflower.  

So that sums up step 3 of this grow guide, and again you want to select if you are doing an auto or photoperiod grow. High THC or high CBD, and then again which strain you want to grow. Now a lot of these breeders do offer several variations of all the strange. So for example if you want a high CBD Blue Dream strain let's say, they do have that, as well as high THC blue dream and then of course you could get blue dream photoperiod, as well as Blue Dream Autoflower seeds. So lots of variations and options out there, you just need to know which pages to look at. and then again I have my list here of recommended seed banks all of which are very reputable and have great genetics!

Now step 4 on the grow guide is going to be selecting the supplies you are going to be growing with, and that is why I had the other steps before this one because a lot of the supplies you will need are going to change based on whether you are doing an indoor or an outdoor grow. As well as Autoflower or Photoperiod plants as the pot sizes are going to change as well as other things you're going to need. So I've got starter kits here that are all inclusive in the have everything you need from start to harvest. But let me just go over the quick basics of what you will need to really get your cannabis grow started. And again these are the bare minimums.

Now the Deluxe series as well as the mini start series does come with the kind of bare minimum setup. but anyways, you are going to be needing of course if you're growing indoors your tent, or Outdoors you'll need your Greenhouse. You are going to need a grow light of course and I always recommend at least 600 watts per plant that you are growing just so you can get a full sized properly developed plant. After that you'll want to have a fan or two to have good circulation and then you are going to need your pots as well as soil. Now for beginners I really recommend the fox farm ocean forest soil, because it is very easy to work with and then also since it is soil. You are not going to have to pH your nutrients or water feedings. 

So you will not have to mess around with a pH pen or anything like that.  Now for nutrients I recommend a basic Trio such as the General Hydroponics or the fox farm Trio. Even the advanced nutrients Trio is good. And then I always recommend on top of that a bottle of Cal Mag. So once you've got your pots, which I recommend starting with at least fabric pots is that is going to be much better than plastic especially when growing Outdoors. Plastic pots Outdoors don't work too well because if they get direct sunlight they heat up really well or really hot. So that can mess up that root zone.

 So you will need your tent, your pots, as well as your growing medium which is the soil, you will want your nutrients, and then the light as well as some fans For circulation. And that is really the bare minimum basic supplies that you will need to get away with for one successful Harvest.  Now for harvesting the plants you are going to want mason jars for the curing process as well as string for hanging them. And a trichome scope is really important for checking those trichomes so you know when they are ready for Harvest. 

So just something to consider, and we do have several different starter kits available, ranging from different size grow setups to indoor versus outdoor, we do have Greenhouse setups, and then you will see like appear we have some deep water culture setup as well. So definitely worth checking these out, a lot of fun and cool stuff here to help get your cannabis grow started!

Alright so we are back here 4 step 5 on this grow guide, and this is an important one because this is the start of the germination period. So you are going to take your seeds and soak them in a glass of water for 18 hours and then you are going to want to place them into a paper towel so they can soak for a few days and get that Taproot going. So that is what I am demonstrating here and these videos, and that is really if you are starting from seed. If you are starting from clone, it is going to be a little different of a process. And once you got that Taproot that is about a half inch in length, like these ones here, you  are ready to transplant or plant the seed to get it growing.

So here I am going to be planting into some rapid rooters, and then you will see here they popped up in the humidity Dome just a few days later. So here is a couple day old seedling right here, in this days you're going to want temperature to be around 75 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit, so it'll be a little warmer. 

And then of course humidity has to be pretty high so that is why I have them in the dome, and I am also missing them several times throughout the day, so that is important as well.  In the seedling stage you will see once you have four to five nodes, they will be ready for their first nutrient feeding. It's got to be a light one of course and then once they get about 6 notes, that is when they will be ready to be transplanted to their final pot. So I like to go from the rapid Rooter or a rockwool cube into a solo cup of soil, and then you'll see here I'm using the fox farm ocean Forest. 

And then once you have roots coming out of the bottom of that Solo Cup, they will be ready for transplant into their final pot. So that is when I take them out and put them into what I will be using here which  these are 2 gallon smart pots. So once you're seedling has about 5 or 6 nodes and is ready to be transplanted or is transplanted too that final pot, that is the beginning!

Now we are on two step 6 for this grow guide, and that's going to be the vegetation stage. So again temperature is going to be around 75 degrees Fahrenheit during this stage, and then humidity wants you were at this point is going to be around 65%. You don't need to be as high as during the seedling stage, so it will come down a little bit. Some important stuff for the vegetation stage, you are going to want to have the light a little bit closer then it was during the seedling stage now that your plants are further along and are getting bigger. 

You will also want to continue with the daily misting and you're going to want to be  watering with nutrients about every fourth watering if you are growing in soil. And that is really important just because you don't want to burn the plants with too much nutrients. Now the vegetation stage is also went all sorts of training happens, so for those of you have heard already, there is topping, FIMing,  as well as low stress training high stress training, and other techniques. So now you will see some examples of low stress training which I've been using on these plants here.

And this is the NukeHeads grow, which I was showing you guys earlier just a little ways back before the flowering period. This is the stage where if you are wanting to do different types of training, this is when you want to do it!

Now finally for the vegetation stage, and another key important part about it is you want to do a lot of defoliation. Especially if you are growing photoperiod plants.  And you will see as they start to grow larger they will get really bushy with lots of fan leaves that will cover up lower Bud sites as well as lower tops that could grow up through the canopy. But because those large fan leaves are covering them up, they are unable to do so. 

So the foliation helps a lot because you were going to remove those leaves and open up the canopy to allow light to penetrate through. And so that those tops can grow up big and strong like the rest. It seems kind of  counterproductive. But you will see especially once you're in the flowering stage, it will actually help with increasing the size of those buds tremendously.

So now we are back for step 7 of the grow guide, and that is the flowering phase of this overall grow. So some important things, first off this is when I like to stop the misting process. Some people do missed a few weeks in, but I stopped immediately once flower starts. And that is just to prevent any issues with mold on the buds or any damaging to the buds themselves. Another thing that is important, as you want to change the conditions in your grow tent as  in flower they do prefer a somewhat different climate. 

So you want to lower the temperature by a few degrees and humidity most likely you want to lower about 5 to 10% as that is going to help during the flowering process. And it is going to help get you guys bigger yields because your plans are going to be much happier during that stage.

So that also brings me back to my next point, so during the vegetation stage there is kind of some wiggle room and some leniency with the plants and how you grow them in terms of If you damage them or if you stretch them out a little bit during the vegetative stage that is somewhat okay because you can always bring them back and let them recover. Because with a Photoperiod grow, the plants can grow as long as they want in vegetation as long as they have 18 hours of light each day. So let's say you stress the plant out with a little bit of nutrient burn or too much light, you can give it some extra weeks just to let it recover. And then that way when you go into a flower, they are not stressed and will continue to give you good yields as well as good quality buds.

 But if you do stress the plants out during the flowering phase it is a different story because you can't really go back and reverse the damage that has been done to the buds. It's kind of once they start you can't really revert any damage that is done to them. So really important to keep everything including the conditions on point during this phase. Now another thing people like to do and they also use this during the vegetation stage, is increasing CO2 levels with either a CO2 system or you can use something like exhale bags that you just hang in the tent.

 So increasing the CO2 levels allows the plants to absorb more light and energy from the lights so that they can grow bigger and larger buds. So you will also notice That during the flowering stage you will need to change that lighting schedule from 18 hours on and 6 hours off to 12:12. And the reason being is if it is photoperiod plant, they will not flower until you flip them into that shorter period Of light. 

And now the reason for this is out in nature the plants in normally flowered during the winter months. So once the days start getting shorter and there is less and less light, that kind of triggers the flowering phase and therefore it the reason for giving them 12 hours of darkness and 12 hours of light each day.  Now with autoflowers it is a little bit of a different story because they need 18 hours plus each day for the entire grow.

 Next on the list is Step eight which is preparing for Harvest as well as flushing the plants. Now you want to know when to harvest the plants at the perfect time, and the way to do that is by checking on the trichomes with a trichome scope. So you will look at them to determine if they are milky with enough Amber, and at that point is when you want to begin your flushing process. Now the idea of flushing is to get out all of those nutrients and salts that may have  built up as well as minerals, within your plants from the nutrient feedings and just from being in the soil and growing. 

So flushing them out with a flushing agent and then about 2 weeks of plain water is going to be really good because it's going to flush all of those salts out. And it will give you a much smoother smoke, as well as a healthier and better tasting smoke. So you are not going to you have any of those nutrients in there when you are smoking, which obviously isn't the most healthy thing to smoke, and also it isn't going to taste very well. A good way to tell if you are smoking bud that has been properly flushed, is by looking at the color of the ash. Now after you have completely finished smoking the bud, if the Ash has turned white, that means it was properly flushed.

 Now if it is black or a different color that means it was not properly flush and still have some stuff left behind in the bud. So once you have determined that the trichomes are at the right color or the right development that you want them, you will begin your flush and then after that two-week period, I recommend giving the plants a duration of 36 hours of darkness. And that just kind of helps them, put them in a little bit of shock that causes them to push out extra resin and THC into those buds and trichomes. So really good little trick to do at the end of your grow, and a lot of people do it for 36 hours, you can do it for up to 48 hours and some people even do it a little shorter for 24 hours. But I have found that 36 seems to be the best duration to do that for.

 So once you are completed with that 2-week flush, then you are ready to start step 9 of the process for growing weed, which is of course the harvesting process. So that is going to begin after that period of Darkness you are going to chop down the main branches and colas. And you are going to pluck off all of those fan leaves so that all is left is the main branch with the buds on it and then the sugar at least for you to trim up. Once you have that process done you want to use your Fiskar trimmers to trim up the sugar leaves until they look nice and clean.

 And so the buds are looking pretty and don't have a bunch of leaves sticking off of them. Now it is a good idea to collect those sugar leaves because you can use them later and process them into certain extracts.  And you can see here a good example of a branch that I was trimming up from start to finish. Another thing that is cool about the harvesting process, is on your Fisker trimmers, you will notice I'm sticky resin building up on them throughout the trimming process. And what that is is something called scissor hash.  You will see that after a little bit you can actually scrape it off with a razor and that is actually usable immediately. 

You don't have to cure it or anything like that and it is great to put on top of a bowl to supercharge it or something like that. Now it's basically a bunch of trichomes out of been pressed together into hash, so you are just going to be able to smoke that right then and there. So it is a pretty cool little treat to have during your harvesting process.

Once you have finished harvesting the product and it is all trimmed up you are ready for the drying process, which is Step 10 on GreenBox Grown official step-by-step guide. Now the drying and curing process is really important so you don't want to mess around with this, as it is about I would say 40 to 50% of the overall result and quality for your bud. You are going to want to hang the buds upside down by string or something gentle that is not going to cut into the branches, you'll want to make sure that they are in a dark environment that is relatively cool and about medium humidity. So around 65% humidity and around 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and completely dark is going to be a good environment for these buds to dry in. 

You do not want to have a fan blowing directly on them or anything that is going to speed up the drying process because that will actually lower the quality results. So after about 5 to 7 days you will want to be testing the branches by bending them, and if they snapped and make kind of a cracking sound that is how you were going to know that they are ready for going into the jars for the curing process.  

If the branch just folds over and doesn't make a sound, then it is too moist and needs to be hung up again to continue drying before you put it in the jars to cure. Now for those popcorn Buds and smaller nugs that aren't on bigger branches to be hung up, you can use a net for putting them on that, and that will actually drive in a little faster so just  keep an eye on that as it usually takes a couple of days for them to try on the dry rack That you hang up.

At this point you are ready for Step 11 which is the curing process and starts right after the plants are starting to snap on the branch from the drying process. So what you are going to do is Click them off of that main branch and then put them into a mason jar for curing. And I like to use humidity packs, the 62% 8 gram ones are great 4 quart sized mason jars. And essentially those just  maintain the ideal humidity and curing conditions in the jar so the bugs don't dry out or get too moist. 

While in the jars you are going to want to burp them for a little bit each day for the first couple weeks, and then for long-term storage after that, all you are going to need to do is birth them once for about 10 to 15 minutes per week And you will be good to go. It is a good idea to store them in a dark place though when you are not using them. So be sure to put them in a closet or a dresser drawer or something like that, and also make sure it is kind of a cool location, not too hot because that will degrade the buds over time.

All right last but not least, we are here for the final step of the grow guide and that is of course the clean up and prep for the next grow process. So it is really important that if you want to continue growing in that same space, that you clean all of the tools and appliances you used as well as the grow tent, just be sure to vacuum it up and wipe it down so that there aren't any past or dirty things left behind. Because that can actually cause problems with your next grow if there is some sort of residue from something like a pest or a disease left behind. So it is a really good idea to clean everything very thoroughly and what is also really cool is a lot of these supplies like the pots and such are going to be reusable, so if you take good care of them by cleaning them up after every row, they will last a lot longer as well.
