More Defoliation + rapid Veg Growth this Week!
What is up GreenBox Growers, and welcome back for the 5th week of vegetation to the chemdawg beginner grow series! So in this next week I'm really looking forward to seeing the results of that defoliation, the first one we did yesterday as well as that scrog net that we had yesterday. I'm just going to be looking to see some new tops coming up from the bottom and starting to fill out that scrog more nicely.
Yeah, so we should get a lot of good New Growth especially new tops coming in from those trainings we did yesterday as pretty was just mentioning. And now that you guys know what we are doing in this week's video, let's get started with day one of the week where we will be doing the next nutrient feeding!
Hey guys, welcome back to the chemdawg grow series it is day one of the week. The plants are looking awesome as usual, we have the scrog net in place now, we've done our first defoliation. So today we are going to go ahead and do a nutrient feeding, it is week 3 of the fox farm vegetative cycle. We are going to be doing it at full strength today and we will be doing a full gallon but we will see if they need that full gallon.
They may only need three-quarters of it but we will see how that goes. And then we also added the full teaspoon of Cal Mag into this mix. We will also go ahead and do the usual shaking of the T&B Naturals CO2 canisters, just want to get that activated and adding CO2 back into the air. We are going to do some LST today and then we will do the usual misting as well. Okay guys so we will go ahead and get all of that started and then I will see you tomorrow for the second day of the week!
Hey guys welcome back to the Chemdawg grow series and I am very excited with the results we have gotten since our first defoliation and since we added that scrog net! The left plant has some catching up to do but as you can see the plant on the right, we already have a top all the way up through the SCROG and then we have four very close behind tops that are about to pass through. So I'm very excited with these results, we did a watering yesterday so we are going to go ahead and just leave the soil be today.
We will shake TNB Naturals CO2 canister of course just to get some CO2 going in the air, and then we will do a misting as well. I did want to mention during this video just so we make sure you aren't forgetting, with our temperature we want to maintain around 72 to 78° Fahrenheit, and then with humidity we are looking for 60 to 65%. So just remember that, and then another thing which is especially critical at this stage in the grow is making sure that your fan in the breeze it is generating is hitting the leaves so that they flutter.
What this is going to do is it will help increase CO2 and oxygen exchange which occurs at the leaves in these little pores in the leaves. So if you have a breeze passing over those pores of the leaves helps make that process happen much more easily. It also helps give the plant some sort of resistance training so they can build up some stem strength as well. So it is really important to make sure that that fan is causing the leaves to Bristol in the wind if you will. Okay so let's go ahead and get the plants I missed in going, this is pretty helpful in maintaining the proper humidity of the air. Okay good, okay guys so that does it and we will see you tomorrow for day 3!
Hey guys welcome back to the Chemdawg grow series, it is the third day of the week for this one and you can see over here on the right plant that the tops are really getting through nicely. Especially this big one here, but really it looks like we have four others that are pretty much there as well. The left side or the left plant excuse me, still has something to be desired we still have some time before it will reach the scrog but that is okay to just a little behind. And then as far as watering goes for today we are going to water as the soil is dry already and that is a good sign.
It means these plants are really just having a lot of good growth occur. So we are going to be doing some LST, we will want to shake the CO2 canister from tnb Naturals as well, and then we will do the misting. And we also want to do some watering today, it is going to be our first plain watering since the last nutrient feeding. And we will be doing three quarters of a gallon of plain water split between the two plans. Okay so we are going to go ahead and get those things started and then we will see you guys back tomorrow for day 4!
Hey guys welcome back to the Chemdawg grow series, is the fourth day of the week here in the plants are finally getting closer to the scrog. The left one it may not seem like it, but it is definitely getting closer and the right one has pretty much gotten 4 or 5 tops all the way through so it is looking good. No watering today as we did that yesterday so the plants are good, we already shook our TNB Natural CO2 canister but go ahead to make sure you didn't do that cuz you want to do that every single day.
And it is best to do that in the morning or early afternoon just so the CO2 is being released during optimal hours for growing and photosynthesis. And we are going to go ahead and do our misting, No LST today, the plants had some yesterday so we want to give them a rest today. And then to keep the humidity around 60% to 65% so that's why we do our misting. Alright to that does it for today guys and we will see you tomorrow for Day 5!
Hey guys welcome back to the Chemdawg grow series, it is the fifth day of the week and today we are going to be watering the plants. It will be our second plane watering today since our last nutrient feeding and we are going to be doing a full gallon roughly. We will see how much they need, but split between the two plants. We will also be shaking the TNB Naturals CO2 canister as usual.
We are going to be doing some LST today and then we will be doing the misting at the end to finish that off. So just too, nothing too unusual today just on maintenance and we are still waiting on that left plant to get up to the scrog net, but the right is still thriving and the left even though it is not there it is definitely Rising. It is just doing it steadily. All right guys said that does it for today and we will see you tomorrow for the sixth day of the week!
Hey guys, welcome back to the Chemdawg grow series. It is day 6 of the week and as you can see the plants are looking great, we also added a second light. This is a 200 watt CanaGrow Cre Cob LED. And then on the left we just move over our Bloom Beast 525 watt I believe it is. So now we have two lights going on in here and that was just because we felt the plants were getting too much shade going on and they were out growing they're only like, the bloom Beast. So we had it in the second one to augment that.
The soil is good today so we will not be watering, because we added the light we will not be doing LST. We don't want to add too many stressors for one day. And then we have already shaken up the tnb naturals CO2 canister, just make sure to do that at the beginning of the day I like to do that early as possible just so that the plants get all of the benefits of that CO2 throughout the day.
And then of course just the usual misting. And for starting this plant off for this light off, this new Canagrow light we have it at 40% we're just going to ease into it because that part of the plant that was covered in shade it might be a little shocking for it to be getting all that light now. So we just want to ease it into that. All right that doesn't for day 6 you guys, we will see you tomorrow for the last day of the week!
Hey guys welcome back to the Chemdawg grow series, it is day 7 of the week and today is a really big day. We are going to be doing a mild defoliation on the left plant over here, as you can see some of the leaves over here are gargantuan and so we want to trim some of those away and just give those lower canopy tops some chance to get some sunlight. So that's all we're doing, it should not take much time and we will be doing a watering as well as the soil is looking really dry. We will be doing some LST on the plants and then dont forget to shake your TNB Naturals CO2 canister of course.
We have already done so, and remember it is good to do that in the morning just so you get the CO2 release throughout the whole day. And then lastly we are going to be doing a quick misting. For our watering guys, we are going to be doing a whole gallon today so that is split between the two plants. And then for the defoliation we will be using our Fisker trimmers here as usual. And then lastly we will be turning at the light today guys, we will be turning up our CanaGrow Cre Cob LED just about 5 to 7% somewhere around there. Okay so that does it and we will see you guys tomorrow for a new week!
Alright Growers so that concludes another very exciting week to the Chemdawg beginner grow series! Yeah so just a recap, we basically did a defoliation to the left plant just so we could get some light to the lower leaves and get those lower tops up to the scrog. And we also added in that second light this week because we really wanted to get a bigger footprint of light over those plants. And in this coming week or two we can expect to see a lot more upward growth because of that and because of the defoliation it will add more light. And hopefully in about two weeks we will be ready for flower. Yep so that concludes week 5 for the Chemdawg beginner grow series and we will see you guys back here for week 6 shortly!
