Week 16 for the Limoncello Haze Plants

Week 5 of Flower for the Mother Plant & Clones


 
 

What up cannabis Growers and welcome back for another lit episode of GreenBox Grown!  Now today kicks off week 16 for that how to grow a mother plant and clone grow series and that is also week 5 of flower. We are now pretty much through the bulk of the flowering phase, so for the rest of this grow we are just going to be finishing up and fattening up those buds and then flushing them for the Harvest.

 So through this grow series I taught you guys how to grow a mother plant, and then how to properly clone her and raise those clones and now I'm just going to show you guys how to finish up the flowering phase for both those clones and the mother plant. Now before I get started with this week's video I want to remind you guys that we do offer one-on-one grow guidance where I myself will personally guide you over the phone each day, teaching you what to do with the plants. 

So if these videos are not enough information or you would like some more Hands-On help. All you have to do is visit this link right here to check out our patreon page, and that is where you can also sign up and learn more details about what our one-on-one packages include. Alright so now that you know what we are doing in this week's video, Let's head out into the garage for day 1 of the week where the ladies are going to get their next watering.

Alright alright folks, so we are out here in the garage for day 1 of the week and all of the plants are actually ready for their next watering so the mother plant is going to be getting her fourth mix of the flower nutrients. And then the Clones are all going to be getting a plane pH water, that is their second one, second feeding of plain ph water since the last nutrient feeding.  So they will get one more of that before their next nutrient feeding.

 But I wanted to show you guys really close here, the buds are continuing to look really nice and developing really well.  Not quite ready yet to be looked at with the trichome scope or to be checking on those trichomes or when they are going to be ready to flush. But I can't imagine probably in the next week to two weeks, we will be getting ready to flush these guys are at least looking at the trichomes to see how far along they are.

So if you guys want more details on how to look at your trichomes and what you should be looking for to determine if they have matured enough or if they are not yet ready. Feel free to hop on over to my intro to Growing section, I have a full on video all about trichomes and how to tell when they're ready for flesh as well as harvest. So I'm going to be watering the plants after this clip, the Clones are getting their second plane pH watering, and then the mother plant will be getting her  fourth dose of flower nutrients.

 So what that means is We are following the fox farm Dirty Dozen schedule so after three nutrient feedings you want to do a nice Sledgehammer flush mixed with 2 teaspoons per gallon of water. So that is actually what I will be doing, a little bit of a flush and it is still a good idea to do a few smaller flushes throughout the grow.  Just so there is not too much of a buildup in the soil of those salts and minerals Left Behind from the nutrients. So that is what I will be doing today, the plane pH watering for these guys here, and then the flushing with the sledgehammer or the Big Mama plant right here. And that is pretty much it for today's update, there isn't really any need for trimming at this point. In terms of the fan leaves, so I probably won't be removing any of those for the next week or so. Probably not until the very end of the flowering stage. So that's pretty much it for day 1 of week 16, and I will be back here in 24 hours. Alright peace guys!

Alright Growers, we are back here now for day 2 of the week just 24 hours later here. Not too much in change, just buds continuing to do the same thing in terms of getting Frosty and fattening up. Not really growing up words anymore because they are finished with that cycle, now they are just going to focus on finishing up that trichome development, and those pistols are starting to slowly sold in. And curl into the buds, and start to Orange so looking really nice, not a lot of leaves going on or a lot of leafy buds growing.

 They are all very dense and solid looking at nugs, especially that big one back there.  And really just making sure that humidity and temperature stays on point at this time, you don't want it getting too hot or too cold in here. That is just going to damage your buds and kind of lower the quality of your yields you're going to get. So probably by the beginning of next week or the middle end of next week I will be starting to check on those trichomes on these plants with my scope. Just to see how far until we are needing to flush them. So just going to give you guys some nice clothes ups on the buds that I have growing.

 You can see, how nice and thick they are getting and the smell is really good, they are extremely Frosty so very top shelf quality right now. And again these are those Limoncello Haze genetics, over there from Amsterdam marijuana seeds. Alright guy said that is pretty much it for the day to update of this week and I will be back here in 24 hours for the next day of the week. All right piece guys!

All right GreenBox Growers, we are back here for day 3 of the week in both the clones and the mother plant are all ready for a watering today. So the mother plant is going to be getting her first plane pH water and since I did that Sledgehammer flush on her the other day. And then the Clones are going to be getting their third plane pH watering. So their next watering after this one is going to be that next flower nutrients feeding. So a couple close ups before I do that watering for you guys so you can see how Frosty and dance the buds are continuing to get. And you can see like I've been saying, those pistols or those white hairs on top of the buds. 

They are starting to crawl in and some of them are even starting to Orange at this point in color. So what that means is there starting to mature a little bit further and like I was saying the other day I will be checking on those trichomes with my scope come early next week as they look like they will almost be ready to do that. So not too much to change or do this week, just maintain the watering schedule as well as proper temperatures and humidity.

But you can see I mean these colas are really fattening up each day so it is going to be a really good yield like I was saying, 2 ounces probably per clone and I will Definitely be giving you guys a driveway during the harvesting process or after the drying process so we can see how close we came to that. Or if we beat that measurement. So that is really it for today's update and I will do that watering now. Again the Clones are getting their third playing pH water and, and the mother plant is getting her first. So again that is it for today's update and I will be back here for day 4 and another 24 hours. Alright peace guys!

What up growers, we are back here another 24 hours later for day 4 of the week and the buds are even bigger today than yesterday as you can see. Really fattening up on all of this colas and I'm not just talking about the main colors in the middle I'm talking about the side colas as well. Those are becoming main colas pretty much because they are almost as big as those main ones in the middle.

 So always great to have those kinds of results and yields all the way around, not just with the middle Bud because these are just going to give us that much more of a yield and the end do to that.  And it is also a good sign that these buds are going to be a really good quality, so some nice close-ups for you guys today, still no need to water does we did that yesterday and they still look nice and full from it so just going to keep on keeping the same temperature and humidity as we finish up these last few weeks of flower here.

 So some of the buds or some of the pistols have Started to curl in an orange, but still I would say good majority of them are standing up, so maybe three more weeks total. 3 or 4 weeks total that we have left including the flush. So that is it for today's update and I will be back here in 24 hours for your next day of the week. All right piece guys!

What up GreenBox Growers, it's another beautiful day out here in Northern California so I am in here in the garage for day 5 of the week. And actually all of the ladies in here are ready for their next watering, so the mother plant is going to be getting her second plane pH watering, and then the clones are actually going to be getting at their fourth mix of flower nutrients. So lost flower nutrient mix, or when I was actually supposed to do the last one I actually did that Sledgehammer flush. So now what that means is I am on the week 8 overall mix from the fox farm dirty dozen.

And I am going to be doing that at full strength as always with my extra teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water. And that is what the Clones will be getting today and that is pretty much it for 2 days update, just continuing with the bud growth each day. That's pretty much the only update, it's been really hot here lately in Northern California, we've been having some beautiful weather but unfortunately with that comes high heat inside the garage. So it has been getting up into that mid-to-high 80s, inside the tent here so I have been working hard and diligently to keep at that temperature down. 

Because really in the flowering phase you don't want to get too much higher than 75 degrees Fahrenheit. So I've been will just opening up the 10th which is a great way, leaving the vent and doors open as well as using fans and ac units to help keep to help keep things to help keep things cool. That's always the best way to do it, and then of course we are out here in the garage so what I've been doing is leaving windows to the garage open to let some fresh air in as well. So here is some nice clothes that's on the buds, they are still getting bigger in size and still developing. 

I've got some pistol still standing straight up, they are mostly curling in and starting to Orange, but still a nice little push late on in here in flower. So really looking good I definitely think we are going to hit that 2 ounces per plant for these guys here, maybe even a little bit more. and then it anywhere from 4 + ounces from the big mother plant. So that is it for today again. This is day five of the week, and I will be back in 24 hours per day 6. Alright peace guys!

What up what up and welcome back for day 6 of week 16 here for the mother plant and cloning grow series. Now the ladies are still doing really well from that water and yesterday, so no need to water today. But I am going to be giving you guys some nice clothes ups on the buds as usual just so you guys can see how they are progressing throughout this week. At this point they are just really as I keep saying, finishing up in terms of fattening up.

And they are just extremely Frosty all the way around. So it looks like I've got about, I would say about 8 to 10 nice-sized really good size colas on the mother plant here and then each of the Clones I mean they've got about six or seven main cool us with the big one in the middle included. So really going to be a nice yield as I keep saying, and just really waiting for them to finish that development with the pistols curling in and oranging. 

And just going to let them finish fattening up as we go through the next couple weeks here. I will check the trichomes next week probably towards the middle or the end. But no need to really check them out yet today definitely have a little bit of a ways to go. So just wanted to show you all the way around all of these buds are developing really nicely. There isn't really any popcorn Buds and less you go like right down below here way inside the canopy. But that is generally going to happen and you can see here, this is the lowest branch and it is still developing a really nice sized nug. 

So really stoked and the smell is tremendous, very citrusy lemony smell. Very high pitched and very terpy for sure.  So not only will I use this obviously for flower, but I will probably make some nice extracts out of these ladies as well. So look out for some videos on that and the near future. So that is it for day 6 of the week, and I will be back here in 24 hours for the last day of the week, and the ladies will probably be ready for their next watering by then. All right!

What up Growers, we are back here for the last day of week 13 here and all of the ladies are ready for their next watering. So the Clones are going to be getting their first plane pH watering since that last nutrient feeding, and then the mother plant will be getting her third plain pH watering. Now like I was saying, this is the very end of week 13 here so week 14 I'm going to say is going to be at a time where I'm going to start checking on the trichomes for how soon until we can start that flush. The beds are definitely still developing but they are getting close to being ready for that flush, so just going to be checking on the trichomes from here on out, just to see how milky they are and Amber.

 Because we want them all to be milky as well as some of them to turn Amber once we start that flush. So that’s what I will be keeping an eye on, and in the meantime just making sure that temperature and humidity stay on point as that is really important as we finish up the end of this grow.   So again today I will be doing that third plane ph watering for the mother plant coming in the first plane pH watering for the Clones. Alright peace guys!

 All right GreenBox Growers,  that concludes week 16 of the how to grow a mother plant and clone her grow series. And again I'm thinking next week will be a good time to start checking on this Tri comes to see what level of maturity they are at. Now I think we still have a few more weeks to go in terms of flour before we start the flush. But it is a good idea to start checking those trichomes early just so you can see how quickly they are developing and progressing over the course of this grow. So you don't want to wait too late to start that flush otherwise the plants will get over right and that is never a good thing. Now I will be back shortly with that week 17 video for this grow series and is always thank you guys for watching, I really hope you  enjoyed today's video until next time…


Happy Growing!!!

Week 7 of the Mother Plant Grow Series: Clones have Rooted

Clones are Rooted and Ready for Transplant!


 
 
 

What’s up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for another lit episode of GreenBox Grown! So this officially starts week 7 of the cloning and mother plant how to grow series, and I took those clothes last week so it's been about 4 to 5 days sense, and I am hoping that I'll have those guys rooting by the end of this week. Now before I get started I always want to remind you guys  that I am offering one-on-one grow guidance where I myself can  personally teach you how to grow over the phone each day. So if you want to learn more about that visit the description down below where I have my email as well as cell phone number, so feel free to hit me up there. 

As I am offering a free trial on my services. Also I want to let you guys know that I just added a new seed bank to that list up above under by seeds, and it is called The Single Seed Centre. And basically this is a website where you can buy each strain individually one seed at a time. So you don't have to buy a pack of like 3 for a minimum, you can just buy one seed of each strain. So definitely check that out, now that you guys know what we are doing and today's video let's get started with day 1 of the week.

Alright guys so here we are for day 1 of week 7 and I wanted to show you first there was a little more burn from the Heat, I'm sorry a little more heat stress from the high heat. So what I ended up doing was I unplugged the heat mat cuz it was just with the light going and being in a small tent, is warm enough as it is. So there was no need for that so I unplugged it and for whatever reason it only affected a couple of the plants. Mainly this guy right here. And that is because that one is right under the light, now this one, these two right here looking really healthy and so is this guy, has a few leaves curling up again just from the high heat.

 But one thing I really wanted to show you guys which is a good sign, is the new stem growth going on down there so you can see not only is it a lighter green, which signifies newer growth. But you can see it is kind of widening out at the base almost to like the stem is fattening up. So you can kind of see on the side here that new lump of growth. And that is just a good sign that it is starting to root down there, and I am hoping that like I said and the intro that by the end of this week we should hopefully see roots coming out of the bottom.

 So continue with the warm temperature and high humidity, still keeping vents closed because I'm going to do that until I see roots coming out of the bottom.  Still missing throughout the day you don't want them to dry up or anything like that, and that is pretty much it for now. So let's go check out the mother plant downstairs out in the veg tent.

 So the mother plant as you guys can see is a little beyond ready for her next water in, so I'm going to give her a plain pH watering at 6.3, and I tested the ppm's after adding that PH down. And they are right around the 318 ppm's. So that is good for a plane pH watering, doesn't need to be too high and less there are nutrients in it at this point. So I've got about a gallon and a half mixed up and I will also be misting with some plain pH water as that is still important. But as usual I will be soaking the soil and making sure to get a decent amount of runoff, probably around 20 to 25% this time. So I'm just going to let that soak in for a little bit and then I will give her some more.

 And now I'm just going to missed her and that will be it for today's video. Really quickly I want to show you guys how the plant is recovering from where I took those clones. I should you guys in last weeks video and I just want to give you a quick update. still no signs of stress or shock or any sort of damage from taking those clones. So she is just continuing to grow with vegetative growth Each day and like I said I will keep her in here like that, until it is time to flower with those other clones. So we will be back another 24 hours for day 2 of the week.

 We are now back for day 2 of the week and mama is looking much better today, much perkier since I gave her that watering and I'm definitely just going to water every other day now since this part is drying out that quickly. So for today and not too much to be done, I will be doing a little more low-stress training since it has been a minute since I did that. And for that training it's not really going to be me trying anything down but like with these new tops that are kind of around the edger perimeter of the plant, I'm just going to kind of been them out like that using that three-finger low-stress training Technique. And you can see just how many little nodes are running up and down that branch, and how far it had to come just to reach the light.

 So pretty cool, nice little shape to her and I'm going to bend these guys out too And expose that mainstem as you can see how big it is getting. And this is that main top again out here, and it's got so many Little Tops coming up there it's so I'm going to been this guy out again too, just kind of yeah there you go so just stays down in that position. Now I've already missed it so no need to do that Right now, but just wanted to continue with bending outwards. And I think it's time to turn the dial up on the veg switch or the veg dial in that bloom Beast LED. 

I think right now it's at 70%, but once I finish doing the spending I'm going to check that out. And again it seems kind of harsh to be doing this to the plant but since she is not flowering yet, and there are so many nodes growing so closely together under each of the tops, it's actually a good idea just to get these branches to bend out and lay out a little bit so you can get some light down there below the canopy. So that's that for that training for now, now let's check on the light. Yeah this is the bloom beast and I've got that seedling dial at 100% at 100%, and ok I was kind of messing with the veg right now but let's turn it up to 90, so now we're at 90 for the veg dial and 100 for the seedling and that is what it looks like, so those last two Cobbs are still off and that's just because they don't come on until you turn the veg switch on which obviously does not time to do it yet.

 Also I have been looking and this light because it is such a short, I can't hang it too high, so the footprint is just staying small enough for his just large enough for this one plant here, so what I'm thinking is I will add some more grow lights in here once I've got those clones and this guy a little bigger or this mother plant a little bigger. So that's really it for today's video and I will be back in another 24 hours. Let me give you a quick a zoomed-out aerial view of the mother plant now that she has been trained for the day. There you go you can see that now it is opened up the canopy and she was kind of laying out and away from the middle and that is what you want.

 is just staying small enough for his just large enough for this one plant here, so what I'm thinking is I will add some more grow lights in here once I've got those clones and this guy a little bigger or this mother plant a little bigger. So that's really it for today's video and I will be back in another 24 hours. Let me give you a quick a zoomed-out aerial view of the mother plant now that she is been trained for the day. There you go you can see that now it is opened up the canopy and she was kind of laying out and away from the middle and that is what you want.

Alright Growers now we are upstairs in my bedroom with the cloning tank, and they are looking really good as always, no roots out of the bottom just yet and there is a little bit more of that burning on the tips of the leaves which was just from that high heat. But like I said, I have adjusted the conditions so that doesn't happen any further. Now it has been about 4 days since I took these clones so what I will be doing today is giving them a very light nutrient watering.

 And what I have mixed up and here is one gallon of water with a quarter teaspoon of Cal Mag by Botanicare, and then I've got one teaspoon of Big Bloom by Fox Farm, quarter teaspoon of the boomerang come back formula by Fox Farm and then finally an eighth of a teaspoon of kangaroos by Fox Farm.  And this is just to give a little bit of a boost to the root system as well as for some vegetative growth to help get these clone started well.

 So now what I'm going to do is just pour a little bit of that nutrient solution into the tray so they can kind of drink it up over the next day and a half. And then I'm also going to top feed some by hand just by pouring it over the tops of the rockwool cubes. Now you don't have to completely soak them, but you know enough so that it can get through and to the end of The Roots below and help with that growth. Now once you guys have given them the nutrients and you have some in the tree below, you are going to want to continue with that misting like so. And again you are going to want to make sure that the temperature and humidity are on point because that is one of the most important factors to making sure these clones root properly. So remember around 78 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal temperature and that is inside of the Dome, not the tent. Remember the Dome will be much hotter inside than the tent. And that is because it is sealed off and all of that.

 Now for humidity anything above 75% is going to be really good and you can be at 85 90 and it's not going to get too high at that point. Just try to stay above 75 if you don't want to go  hello that. Now I'm going to make sure to put the Dome back on to make sure it stays humid in there And that is really it for today's update. As I have been saying I really hope that these guys root by the end of this week so I will keep you guys posted on that and just a quick look. nothing coming out of the bottom yet In terms of roots again you can see though it is kind of fattening up around the stem at the base where it goes into the rockwool cube. And that's just a good sign of new growth and the added focused with the energy of the plant down there at the root system. So I will be back in another 24 hours for your next update. Peace! 

Alright guys so check this out, we are back here another day later from giving those nutrients to the clones. So it is now day 3 of week 7 here, so that is about day 5 or 6 since I took these clones. So you can still see it is really nice and humid and foggy and side of this tent, or inside of this dome which is exactly what we want. And I turned the heat mat back on to warm things up a little bit because I actually realized that the issue at those leaves that were curling wasn't actually due to it being too hot in the tent. It was actually from me not giving them enough nutrients, so what happens is with the light going the plants start to try and veg and get vegetative growth going up top but because there are no nutrients or routes to take out nutrients down below just yet, they kind of burn themselves a little bit and that is why they curled up and kind of browned.

 So what I did is I turn the heat mat back on to turn things up a little bit, I've still been misting them. And then of course I gave them those nutrients yesterday, which is going to counteract that, and you can also see I clipped off the tips that were burnt so there are no longer there stressing the plant out. And you can see actually there are no more new burnt tips have formed as of yet. And that is because of the nutrients helping them grow, there are no roots coming out of the bottom I just checked. And I kind of pulled this wrapper off the sides of the cube to see if any were coming out the edges. 

But none yet that I could see. The only grow that I could show you guys as how the stems are just fattening up so much below, and you can see that how they're they are like growing these fins down the side where they just kind of widen up like that. And that's just cuz there's a lot of new growth going on down there so the plant focuses a lot of its energy and nutrients down that way. So is always going to continue with misting them with that plane pH water and that is really up today for the Clones, so let's go head out into the garage downstairs to check on the mother plant.

Alright Growers here we are in the garage with big mama, and you can see she's already standing right back up from that low stress training I did and yesterday's clip. But the branches are spread a little further apart which is nice because it will allow for some more tops like this the one right here to come up through the canopy. Let me put the camera down so I can get you a better shot. But here we go you can see this guy and she actually has a couple others that are starting to make it up, so I'm going to bend her out again but with Justice main top here because you can see that's going to expose a lot of those tops that are starting to grow up. So I've got about 5 new tops coming up just from bending this one main topic over.

 And if you remember this is the first top that the plant had at the very beginning of the grow. So no need to really do any more LST besides that for today, but since I am doing that watering every other day I am going to give her another plane pH watering at 6.3 and that is going to be the second since her last nutrient feeding. Now ppm's was at 409 which was good because it's a plane pH water so it's not going to be too much higher than that. But with nutrients we are right around 1200 to 1250 range. So I'm going to water her until she gets about 25% runoff, and then I will give her a plain pH misting and that will be it today really for taking care of the  Mama plant today.

 Now I am expecting she will get a lot bigger before those other Clones get in here, just because she is growing really fast at this point and because you know it is probably still going to be another week to week and a half before they are out here. So we will just keep the conditions the same and keep treating her the same way, if you were planning on keeping  this mother plant and not putting her into flower, Once the Clones were ready to go into flower, then all you would do is continue with this vegetative stage. 

You would probably want to tell her grow tent than this because you want her to be able to keep growing up words while you keep taking clones from her as she goes. But since I am going to be flowering her I am not really going to worry about that so yeah. If you do want to keep her as a mother plant for a longer period of time, I would just continue with the fox farm feeding schedule until you get to that last week of veg, and then  at that point you just repeat it until you are done with growing the mother plant. So that is it for today's clip, and I will be back in another 24 hours, peace guys!

Alright guy is here we are another 24 hours later for a day 4 of the week, so let's take a look and see if we've got any roots coming out of the bottoms of these rockwool cubes. Now as you can see that solution of nutrients that I had in the tray has dried up, so I have mixed up some more at a similar ratio and I will be feeding that in just a second. But first let's see if we got any roots coming out the bottom here. So first off here is the big one that seems to be doing the best out of all of them, and I am not seeing any routes. But again a lot of people say it takes about 14 days before you're going to see them root out, I usually get them around 7 to 10 days and I think this is about day 6 or 7 now.

 So we are getting right around that time. And now I'm not seeing any routes out of that one yet. I am seeing like I said earlier some good growth at the stem there are fattening up a little bit, but it looks like Yeah I know Roots as of now on any of these. But what's also good as we are not getting any burn yet either Like we were doing before. And that's because I have started with the nutrients.  Now that we have checked out if there were any Roots, which there are not for any of them just yet, let's now do a quick nutrient feeding. 

So what I've got mixed up in here right now is one gallon of water with half a teaspoon of cal-mag and then buy Fox Farm I put in one teaspoon of Big Bloom, half a teaspoon of kangaroos and then 3/4 a teaspoon of their comeback formula which is the boomerang. So that is what I have mixed up in here, and what you'll see is not only am I going to leave some in the tray below for the plants to feed on for the next couple days but I'm also going to talk feed them to the rockwool cubes.  So I just mixed this up like I said, and I ph, and I ph it so there's around 5.8, it doesn't have to be at 5.8 but does it help since they are in the rockwool cubes.  there's around 5.8, it doesn't have to be at 5.8 but does it help since they are in the rockwool cubes.

And ppm's were right around the 700. So that is not too high for this point, is just right, and yeah that is pretty much it. You want to make sure to give them a good soaking and then leave them a little bit down there to soak up over the next couple of days. And then just going to miss them as always and you want to keep those same conditions of a high humidity in a warm temperature, And that is really it for today's video. So now let's go downstairs and check out the mother plan out in the garage.

 Alright so now we are outside in the garage with the lemoncello his mother plant and she is doing really well and already recovered again from that last low-stress training. So let's do a little bit more of that today and I watered yesterday like you guys saw. So there is no need for me to be watering today. So I just checked the soil at is still pretty moist at this point but I will probably be watering by tomorrow. But yeah you can see so this main top or this main branch out here that was the first main one, and the very beginning. And you can see just how many individual little tops are coming off of the sides of it. 

So that is going to be a great little section of the plant all on its own there. And I just keep wanting to bend that made child down like that because it exposes light to all the ones below it. And will allow those ones to grow up just as big as it is. And that will  fill out a whole section of the plant right here if I'm able to get those to grow on their own. So that is what I'm trying to do right now and you can see there's about one, two, three, four, five little guys trying to come up and then I would say a whole host of other ones just the growing throughout the notes there. 

So I'm really just continuing with bending this main branch out like that for some low-stress training. The rest don't really need to be bent out that much because they are not covering up a bunch of vegetative growth below. It is just this made top here, and that is it for now for the low stress training and then I'm just going to give a nice missing right here. And then that is it for today's video, so I will be back in another 24 hours for the next day of the week.

 What up Green Box Growers, we are back here another 24 hours later for day 5 of week 7. And I am actually pretty stoked because we now have some Roots growing out of her clones here. So let me just take the lid off really quick and here's a good shot of how the dome should look when it's really Really humid in there, you can see it is really foggy with water on the walls of the Dome. And that is because I still have the vents on the Dome closed and because I am keeping it warm in there. So yesterday I gave her the Clones some of that nutrient solution you can see it still down in there below and that is helping a lot with getting the roots going. I have the heat not going as well to help keep them warm and that helps a lot with root growth.

 now there is one that has a root coming out of the bottom and there she is right there, so you can see it as a pretty good size group. And then the others, is going to be hard to show you but they actually have Roots growing that you can see through that little top hole that the stem is growing out of, so it's going to be hard to give you guys a shot of that butt yeah there is definitely a lot of root growth going on in there. And like I said right now it is just that one that I showed you that it looks like it has that route coming out, but that is a good sign that the other ones are now rooted as well and probably in the next couple days here they should all have roots coming out and we will be ready to go into Solo cups. 

Which means they will then be ready to go out into the veg tent in the garage. So we are actually at about day 8 or 9 since I took these cuttings, so that's actually pretty quick for them to start rooting. And I'm actually really happy about that, and now that you guys have gotten that update I'm going to give them a quick misting and then we will move outside downstairs into the garage so you can see how the mother plant is doing.

 Alright Growers we are out in the garage and I just checked the soil and she is ready for her next watering so I've got some plain pH water mixed up here at 6.3. And this is her third watering since her last nutrient feeding, So after this one it's going to be her next nutrients. So before I do that I wanted to let you guys know that she is looking like she is not getting too much bigger, so what I'm going to do is turn up the dial for the veg switch on my Bloom Bistro light.

 So right now I'm at about 95 so now I'm just going to finish it off and turn it up to a hundred there. Got the seedling dial at 100 as well. And then I will be adding another light in here once I get those clones rooted or finished rooting and put into their pots. I'll bring those out here and bring in another grow light.

 So now let's give her that mix up some plain pH water as well as a misting and then we will be done for today shot. So at this point you are going to want to be getting about 25 to 30% run off especially when you are in the air route spot because obviously it's going to get a lot more run off a lot more easily and that is also why I am watering a little more frequently Then I would if let's say if I was growing in a fabric pot. So just going to give it a good soaking till I'm getting some run off and then I'll let that soak in and feed it some more and then do a nice misting so you get all of the foliage. 

And again I like to go from underneath facing upwards with the spray bottle because that just helps get the bottom sides of the span leaves, which helps a lot as well. So really quickly before I go I just want to give you guys some close-ups on this vegetative growth because it is doing really well and it is looking really healthy, and I just want you to see how that looks. You can see there are no burns on the tips or the sides of the leaves,

 Doesn't show any sort of discoloration going on or any  sort of burns or anything Like that. Which is always good because less stress that you give during the veg stage, the better the results you will end up getting throughout flower. So that is it for today's clip and we will be back in another 24 hours.

 What up Growers we are back here for day 6 of the week, and one of these clones now has actually a ton of roots coming out of the bottom. So before I put her in the Solo cup with soil I'm going to wait for the others to root but really quick I want to show you guys with that looks like, and she I mean yesterday I showed you guys her and the clip from yesterday and she only had one route coming out of the bottom. 

Now you can see she has like a whole host of them coming out, so she's pretty much ready to go into the Solo cup with some soil. And I will be using the fox farm ocean forest for that. But I am going to wait another couple days maybe just one more day so tomorrow I will probably put her in the Solo Cup and hopefully some more of these other plants are ready by then. But I can still keep them all together in the dome here so that isn't really going to be an issue. But anyways just wanted to show you guys that and a couple of them do have Roots showing but like I was saying in yesterday's clip you can only see them By looking through the top hole there.

 

And other than that just continuing with the misting everyday.  all right now let's go head out into the garage and check out the mother plant. Right now we're out here in the garage with the lemoncello Hayes mother plant and nothing too new to report to you guys she's looking pretty good and healthy as always. No Burns or deficiencies and she has some sustained vegetative growth. So she is looking really good and getting bigger by the day so nothing really to show you guys, I will just give her a quick miss seeing of plain pH water and that will be it for today's video. I will be back in another 24 hours for your next update and I will be holding off on LST for another week or so on her. Or at least until those clones root and are back in this tent with their mother plant.

 What up Growers we are back now for day 7 of the week, and actually four out of five of these clones have actually rooted in are ready for transplant. So that is what I'm going to be doing in two days video so let's get started with that. So the first thing I want to show you guys I just want to show you what those roots look like and how well they are growing. They've actually really these last couple of days here. But you can see this guy has just one route coming out and then she's actually got a few coming out around the sides. And then this one is one of the ones that's doing really well as you can see there. 

Got some crazy Root growth going andonce these guys are in the soil they will just start taking off. so this one is the one that's doing the best by far. Now this guy right here just has a little one just poking through, but that is good enough to get started in the Solo Cup. But this guy this little one right here doesn't have any sort of growth yet or  as of yet. So I'm going to leave it on the floor of the tray without the Solo Cup and soil Until I do start to see some root growth. So the first step is going to be to remove the rapper so you don't want to plant these rockwool cubes with those wrappers still on. So I'm just going to use my Fisker trimmers and you want to be careful because sometimes there are going to be roots that have grown out of the size of the rockwool cubes to wear those rappers are covering.

 So just be sure to be really careful while making the cut. Now the easiest way to do this without damaging any routes that might have grown out of the side of the rockwool cube, is to just cut down one of the corners of the rapper like this. Just very gently and very slowly and then just like that it is going to peel right off. Now this is the guy I said I'm not going to be planting just yet but I am removing the rapper because I want to see if there were any roots coming out of the side because if there are then that would be good enough for me. 

But I am not saying that so what I will do is just leave it like this and then hopefully that will help, maybe that's a little route starting to poke out right there. I don't know if you guys can see it's kind of anyways sometimes clones don't root. Even if you do everything perfectly you know that is just part of nature. But I think I'm going to give this one a few more days just to see what happens, maybe just one more nutrients feeding. But anyways I'm going to cut the rappers off the rest of them and then plant them into Solo cups with Fox Farm ocean forest soil. 

So you can see I've Got 5 Solo cups just like this with all the holes and slits cut around the bottom and the lower sides. And that is just for drainage so these guys don't drown in the cups of course. You want to wait for the water to flow out through the bottom of the cup of course. so I just used my Fiskar trimmers to cut those. And then since they are in the rockwool cubes it will be different when you plant with seeds, I'm going to since they are not seedlings but really they are a little taller than a Seedling would be At this stage and a little stronger in terms of stem growth. 

So what I'm going to do is have it so there is a little soil in the bottom about 2 inches up and then I will place the cube in there and bury it.  I am hoping to have the cube somewhere well actually I will have about 3 in at the bottom because I do want the cube or at least the bottom of the cube to be resting about right here in the Solo Cup. Right under this Ridge right there. You don't want the cube above the brim or anything but you don't want it all the way at the bottom either. So somewhere in the upper middle is where I will be going. So let me do that and then I will show you guys what that looks like afterwards.

 Alright guys so really quickly before I plant them here's a great shot with all the rappers off and I just wanted to show you guys what that root growth looks like when it's coming out of the sides. So you can see this one actually had a good amount of growth coming right out of the side of the rockwool cube there. So let me plant these and then I will be back with that shot. Now here's what they look like right before I cover them with soil and I just placed these guys into the Solo cups with some soil right below them.

 And you want to make sure there is at least a couple inches to the roots to grow into. But you don't want it all the way at the top either. So that is what they look like right before they Get the soil and again this one's not getting planted just yet. Hoping it maybe a couple more days like the middle of week 8 or this week's coming video where this one will start to root. And then I can plant her just like these ones. Alright welcome back, the transplant is now complete and you can see they're all in the Solo cups now except for that smaller one without the roots. 

And this one was planted a little to the side, you want to make sure they are really centered on the Solo Cup you don't want them to the edge like this, but it is not a huge deal if you can't do it that way, it just helps. But since these guys are going to be transplanted into bigger pots and just a week here it doesn't really matter. So what you are going to want to do once you have transplanted into the Solo cups as you are going to want to give them a white watering of some plain pH water. and you don't need to do a whole lot you just kind of want to moisten the soil so it is enough to let the roots grow out into that new space. 

If it stays dry then the roots are kind of just going to stay in that rockwool Cube and not expand out so just like that, that is plenty for that one right there and then of course continue With the misting. I am still keeping these guys and the humidity Dome until they are ready to go out into the big veg tent. But what I will do now is start cracking the vents of the Dome up top. So today I will crack them a quarter of the way open for both Vents and then tomorrow and the day after I'm just going to keep opening a little bit more until they are completely open all of the way. 

 

So that is it for the transplanting process and you'll still want to keep high humidity around 65 to 70% and opening those events will help lower it of course. You're going to want to still keep a little bit of plain water down below here in the tray, and then I will be doing some nutrients later in the week 8 video so don't worry about that just yet. Just keep missing the plants and checking on them throughout the day. no need to increase the power of the light yet either, that'll just be when we put them outside into the big tent.

All right now we are out here in the garage with a big mama here checking up on her. And she is actually ready for that next nutrient water. So I will be giving you more details on that and just a sec but first let's just get some good close-ups on how this lemoncello his mother plant is doing. Now those clones like I was showing you just recruited and they were transplanted so they should be out here no more than a week's time. And she is still going really well, you can see it's kind of slowly and vertical growth too much bushier. And that is because I have held off on the low stress training just because I want there to be enough room in the tent once those clones get out here. Because I will be doing some training with them as well.

 So as you guys can see she is still in pristine shape and happy as always, so that is good, And now it's take a look at that nutrient feeding. So we are on the next nutrients and it's going to be that week 4 of vegetation mix from the fox farm Dirty Dozen. And that is actually the last vegetative mix on the schedule, so that is what I will be following from here on out until I flip her into flour. 2 repeating that is just fine, you don't need to worry about doing that, but what I did do this time as I only mixed it at 3/4 strength again, not quite ready yet to go to full strength and there is really no need because she isn't showing any deficiencies and a growing really well. 

So I'm a bump up to full strength on that next one, who knows but I did add some cal-mag, 3/4 teaspoon per gallon and then I did the rest of the mix at 3/4 strength.  Ppm's are at 1000 right now and I measured that with my TDS meter and the pH is at 6.3. But for that PPM level, so in the fox farm schedule for the dirty dozen to be around 1750 to 2000 PPMs right now. So I am actually pretty low and I think that is okay because she isn't actually showing any deficiencies like I was saying. I'm a bump them up over the next day and a half just to try out those levels. 

And if I see any sorts of stress or toxicities I will cut them back again, but you know you don't always have to follow the exact amounts with a nutrients in growing cannabis. When it comes to nutrients and growing cannabis it seems like less is always more and doing more is always too much. So I just plan to water her with the nutrients until she gets about 25% runoff And then as always you are going to want to continue with the misting.

 So I'll let me do that right now for the you guys. And as we are getting closer to flower you're going to want to do this because you were going to want to keep those families nice and healthy because they are very important once you get to the flowering stage. And having them nice and healthy once you start flower is always great because no or little stress on the plant it's going to produce really good and frosty buds. All right guys that is it for today's clip and I will be back in another 24 hours.

 Alright GreenBox Growers, so that concludes week 7 of the cloning and how to grow a mother plant grow series. And things are really starting to get exciting out of those clones have rooted and are now planted in the Solo cups, so it should be another few days here before we start to see roots coming out of the bottoms of those Solo cups and now they should start getting some good vegetative growth. So  once they are big enough I will move them out into the vegetative with their mother plant. And then we will grow them through a little bit of a vegetative state so they can get some good size and LST training in. And then from there we will flower them all together in the big tent. So definitely stay tuned because I will be back soon with week 8 of this grow series shortly, and as always thank you guys for watching and until next time…

Happy Growing!!!

Taking Clones: Week 6 of the Mother Plant Grow Series

Cloning the Limoncello Haze Mother Plant


 
 
 

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for the most lit cannabis grow Channel! Not today is the start of a very special week because we are kicking off week 6 of the mother plant and cloning how to grow series and what that means as we are going to start actually cloning  the Limonchello Haze mother plant during this week's video.  Now right now I have those buds hanging and  drying in that small seedling tent that I use for my seedlings and clones, so once those are done in there in the next few days that is when I will take the Clones. So in the meantime I'm just going to be prepping the Limonchello Haze for taking cuttings from. And then once those buds are done drying and I have them in the mason jars and that seedling 10th is open, That is when I will be taking the Clones!

 So that should be a little bit later this week so get excited for that, and before we get started with the video I wanted to remind you guys that I am offering some personal grow guy that's where I myself will work with you one on one over the phone, teaching you  exactly what you need to do each day so you can get the best buds possible! So feel free to hit me up via my info down below my contact info is in the description. And I can set you up with a free trial to that. So just contact me via my email or cell phone and again that's down below in the description. And also don't forget to check out our MERCH on the GreenBox Grown website under MERCH and smoke. And now that you guys know what we're doing in this week's video let's get started with day 1 of the week!

 Alright Growers we are here for day 1 of the week and you can see she is really thirsty right now. That is why the leaves are all drooping down like so, let me give you guys a little close up of that just so you can see the soil is really dry. And it was pretty dry yesterday I thought I should give it a little more time but it looks like I waited too long to water. But don't worry it's not the end of the world that is all right, because once I water her, those leaves will perk right back up within about 30 to 45 minutes. And tomorrow she should  be looking like just before.

 So I just wanted to show you guys what that looks like so you can spot and under-watered plant and again under-watered isn't as much about not giving it enough water when you do water, it's more about not watering frequently enough. So I waited too long between waterings, and that is why that happened. So this is going to be the second plane in PH watering since the last nutrient feeding, it's going to be at 6.3 pH and I've got about a gallon mixed up here. I don't think she will need all of that but we shall see. Now as I was mentioning in the intro, I am waiting for those buds to finish drying, that are in my seedling tent, and that is when I will be cloning this plant and putting them in there.

 Because I need that space or I need that seedling tent because that is where I put my clones after cutting them. It's just the best way to do it and the best way to get a successful clone or cutting. They should be done drying in there in about three more days maybe sooner but I'm expecting maybe 3 or 4 days. And then once that happens I will be taking some clones from this lady. So still going to be happening this week just not at the very beginning.

 But it is also a good idea to wait a little after I put her through the stress of the under watering so it's kind of good that this happened because I would be waiting anyways on cloning her due to the underwatering here. Also don't forget to missed as you want to do a plain pH misting at 6.3 as well. To help get those leaves Peart back up. Also I want to show you guys the difference between Under and Over watering, so you can tell these are under-watered and not over watered by the way they are kind of just hanging lifelessly like that. If they were curled and kind of standing up but curled over really tightly and looking really heavy. Like right now if you feel that they feel like tissue paper and are very dry almost so that is how you know they are under watered. But like I was saying if they are curled and feel really heavy, that is a sign of over-watering.

Alright so here is a perfect example of how a plant can look much better Right after watering. Now this is 24 hours later of course it only took about 25 to 30 minutes for it to look like this after I gave it that watering yesterday. And for those of you who saw the previous clip to this video, you will know that all of these leaves are drooping lifelessly and it looked like she was dead. But she was just thirsty and I waited a little too long to give her some water so that is all it takes to fix that issue now. The seedling clone tent is still full with those buds that are drying in there, they're not quite ready to come out and go into the mason jars yet. So not going to be cloning yet today, but what I will be doing is a little bit of the 3-finger low-stress training which you can see me doing right here. I'm going to do that to those main tops that are up above the canopy.

 The reason being is they have, there is a lot of really good vegetative growth going on a below the main canopy and throughout the nodes. So you can see here there are several different tops coming out right there, and then right at this second node here. So those two nodes are only like an inch apart and they Have 4 different tops growing. Now just an inch down you can see there are another two tops trying to poke up through the canopy which you can kind of see one right there and then this one right there. And you can imagine all the way down the branch which is about 2 ft long or about a foot-and-a-half, the every inch or so there is another node with two more tops just like that.

 so bending this talk part of the nodes out away from the middle of the canopy, so I can let these little guys pop up in the next couple days. And those will actually be my clones as I was actually saying these big main branches have really kind of stiffened up and the stocks have really thickened as you can see. And that's not really the kind of growth that you want to take for a cutting, you want to take this new kind of flexi not super stiff and straight-up, but kind of Bendy, kind of growth.

 Because that is still the Young and newer growth which means it will be better for cloning because it has a better chance at routing and taking off. Where this more solidified growth with this big thick branches, that will have a harder time because it is more in the veg stage and more solidified in that stage.

So I'm going to train all of these tops with this three-finger LST technique, and I'm not going to tie them down with hooks because there is no need for that I'm going to be cloning pretty quickly here but I will do some bending so that they are facing out horizontally or at least towards the ground a little.  And sometimes it takes a few bends and then you got to let it stand back up and then try again. But eventually it will stay. So that is it for today's video but hopefully it'll only be another 2 to 3 days before I start the cloning process, just have to wait for those buds to finish drying in the seedling tent. And then we will be on our way with that!

 All right guys so I actually decided I wanted you one more shot now that I'm done with all the low stress training on the mother plant. Because I want you guys to see what kind of results you can get from doing it. And I also want to see what kind of growth is going on Under The Canopy. That is pretty crazy how much node growth is going on and how close the note spacing is. Here is a good example, you can see like 1 2 3 4 like 5 or 6 nodes right there and then about a six in Span. So really healthy plant and all of those notes will turn into their own main tops. so that is why I’m bending the branch over like that so all the light can be exposed instead of that top kind of covering up like that, it is bent over and now they will all grow up like that.

So I just finished bending and doing all of the LST training, low stress training, of course no pull downs or anything like that. I'm going to give her another misting and you can see just how big the stock is getting, it's pretty fat and very healthy and another thing I want to show you. So newer growth you'll see this was like a top standing up and it's pretty big but it is newer and it is way more flexible and easier to bend than some of the older growth. And again that is just because I was the stock thickens and as it gets older and starts to solidify more it strengthens itself. And that is because it is preparing or holding those big buds. 

Now this training will be really good because now a lot of tots are already popping up like you didn't see right here. And I mean this is a perfect cutting to take right here or a clone so that would be good for that. And these branches will stand up and no time. But geez just look at how big that is getting, it is pretty impressive! And I'm getting excited again because this is a great plant to clone like I keep saying and the buds, this is just a great sign that the buds are going to be even better.

 So another thing when it comes to low-stress training, sometimes you all maybe take it a little too far so you think, you'll hear a little pot, and your top might just be kind of dangling like that. It didn't snap, and break off, but it is kind of just lamp and it is just kind of going limp and hanging lifelessly.  That's actually a good thing, the further you go with it the better the results are going to be for the low stress training. So when you kind of pop them like that, it's just going to cause them to grow back that much stronger and you don't want to break them off of course because that will just kill them but if it does SNAP or Tear a little bit of the branch, you can always take it back together. And it will fuse itself back together and be good as good as new in about a week's time. So that's it for today's video and I will be back in 24 hours for your next clip.

 All right guys, back another 24 hours later for day 3 of the week. And I just checked the soil is actually already ready for her next  watering. So that's going to be a plain pH watering and this is the third one since the last nutrient feeding, so after this she will be getting her next. That will be after the cloning though, because  I just checked on the buds that are drying in the Clone and seedling tent and they are going to be ready by tomorrow to go into the jars. So expect tomorrow's video to be about cloning. Another thing I wanted to show you guys as I haven't turned up the dial on the light here, on the bloom Beast veg dial In a while. 

And that is because I've had it set, I normally have it at about 50 on the veg dial, but now I'm going to turn it up to about 75%. Just because some of the plant isn't getting enough light towards the edges so I want to brighten it up a little bit. Like you can see hear this talk I trained a little bit yesterday, it should be standing up by now but it's still kind of hanging over and that is because it is mainly in the shadows and not getting very much light coverage.

 So I turned that dial up a little bit to spread out the lights footprint, and some nice new Little Tops came up through the foliage here let me see if I can get a good shot, yeah you can see a lot of good tops were coming up when I bent this guy over because that top was covering all these guys before I did that LST Yesterday. So that is it for today's video, I'm going to water her and then give her a good misting and then I will be back in 24 hours to start cloning this Limonchello Haze  mother plant!

All right guys it is now day 4 of week 6 and we are officially ready to start the cloning process! so first I want to show you the supplies you need and everything you should have set up before the cloning process, and then we will go  downstairs into the garage, to clone that Limonchello Haze mother plant! So first thing you're going to want to do is get your cloning tent set up. So I've got this small 2X2 tent here which is great for putting your clones into, you're going to want to have your humidity Dome set up and then you'll want a heating pad right under that. So I'll be putting these guys into rockwool cubes so I'll soak them first  in a bowl of 5.5 pH water. And then I've got them in here in the humidity Dome waiting for the Clones to be inserted into them.

 Now you want the top of the Dome to have the vents completely closed because he want high heat and the highest humidity possible inside the Dome. Or temperature you want around the range of 75 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit and you will be misting so that is what the spray bottle is for, and you'll want to do that several times throughout the day to help With that high humidity.  Another thing you'll want is just a glass of water some of the sink is fine, and then your cloneX or some sort of rooting hormone for dipping the tips of your clones into.  Finally you're going to need a razor blade, a sharp razor blade of course for cutting your clones and then that is pretty much it for what you'll need. All right now will head down into the garage to start the cloning process.

 Alright guys we are out here in the garage and the first thing you're going to do is pick out the branches you will be taking us clones. Best practice for this is to find New Growth like I was saying in the previous video, it is still flimsy and flexible, not rigid and stiff like old growth becomes. So you can look throughout the canopy for newer notes that have popped up, so here's a perfect guy right here. And so I will be taking that one and we are going to be taking five clones today. So I'm going to be looking for a couple to get under here and you want to have a couple notes, 3-4 that you cut below. Here's a nice top that I'll be taking here as well. So now that I have found a couple clones, I will take my razor blade here and of course you want a clean sterile razor blade, that is really important you don't want to infect your clone right off the bat. This is a brand new blade and also be careful because these are obviously very sharp and you don't want to cut yourself.

 Alright guys so once you find a branch that you're going to be taking as your clone you're going to want to find the very base of it where it meets to the main stem of the plant because that is where you're going to want to cut it. You're going to want to cut at a 45 degree angle to where the branch meets the stem. So if the branch is coming straight down like this you're going to want to go 45 degrees from there and cut one nice straight cut or slice Through the branch, you don't want to be hacking or sawing at it because that will damage it.

So let me do that right now, I've got my finger all the way down here and I found the bass. Now I'm going to cut it at that 45 degree angle and I kind of took off a fan Leaf below there but that is okay. So yeah there is my clone, so once you take that put it right away in that glass of water that I had you guys get. And you can just dunk the root or the bottom of the stem right in there. alright so now that you guys have your first clone in the cup, you're going to take it out real quick and what I'm going to do is trim her up.  And that is important because you don't want to have too many leaves on here so be sure to completely clip off all of that bottom growth just like this. And don't worry the reason behind this is because you don't want your plant or your clone focusing on vegetative growth. You want her completely focused on that root growth.

 And you'll see that each one of these I'm clipping is a node so you'll see a node right there, there's a second third and then a fourth and fifth. And even a sixth right here.  So taking off pretty much all of the fan leaves,  I've got this one fan leave left up top here and then kind of that node at the middle of the very top. And what I'm also going to do now is clip the fingers of the fan leaves. Because you don't want too much growth on there. 

And again it just helps so that they focus on that root growth. Which is very important beginning because you want your clones to root early so you can plant them into some soil in a Solo Cup and get them going. So this is a very good clone ready to go and so I'll put  her back into the water and now I'm going to take my for others and trim them up like that, and then I'll meet you guys upstairs for the rest of this process.

Alright guys so I actually forgot one important key element to this process that you will want to do to your clones. So after you cut your clone off of the mother plant and you've got her all trimmed up and the glass of water, you're going to want to take her back up out of the cup and you're going to want to scrape up the bottom and or maybe three quarters of an inch and you're going to want to use that razor blade to scrape off the outer layer of the branch there. And this will be too kind of exposed what people call the guts or the inside of the plant. Some people also kind of split down the middle of the stem there to kind of open her up in a centrally the idea is that helps with root growth and faster root development, because you expose the under layer of the stem which has been causing it to grow more route out of that area.

So as you guys can see here, I've got a nice 45 degree angle cut and that is what it should look like at the very bottom at the stem there, not a straight across cut. Okay so now I'm going to take my razor blade and kind of scrape dress like that to expose the guts as they say. And that is just going to help with better faster root growth from the very get-go. Alright so now that that is done just place it back into the glass and then I'll be taking the rest of my cuttings, and then I will be meeting you guys upstairs for the rooting hormone process where I will be putting them into the rockwool cubes. 

One other thing is the reason they do go inside this cup of water instead of just having them exposed to the air is because sometimes air bubbles will get trapped in the stem. Which will then cause problems and cause them to not root and grow properly. So that is why you keep them in the glass of water with the stem buried and the water, so no air bubbles can get in.

 So now we are upstairs with the cloning tent and what I'm going to be doing is soaking the ends inside the clonex rooting solution. So I've had this guy on here for about 2 minutes now and that's really all it needs, you want to make sure there is a good covering around the lower end or inch and a half of the stem and that's going to really help make sure that those routes take off from the get-go. So now I'm going to just place this clone into the rockwool cube, and you want to be not too forceful but you want to make sure that it goes through a little bit. Not through the bottom of the cube though so just make sure it's not poking through, but you do want to push it in somewhat into the cube.  And then that's it!  So now all you have to do is mist the seedling and keep it in this dome with lights on.

 I'm using a 45 watt light that is just a couple inches above the Dome and you want to give her 18 hours on, 6 hours off of light and she should start rooting within the next 7 days here. I will be back with updates throughout the week to show you how those roots are coming along so you guys can see how that process goes. But it will be a few days from now until you start seeing roots coming out of there. Now I'm going to be keeping this Dome covered up and with the events completely closed throughout the day, so humidity is as high as possible. And then I have that heating mat underneath to help keep things warm. So let me dunk and place the rest of these clones into their rockwool cubes and then I'll be back to show you guys what that looks like.

So I've got them all in the rockwool cube now and all that is left is to give them a good misting of plane pH water at about 6.3. You want to mist the inside of the Dome there so just nice and humid from the get-go, and now I will be closing these guys up and closing the tent to let them start rooting. Now I will be back in 24 hours with your guyses next update, I don't think there will be any roots coming out just yet, it'll probably take a couple days to 5 days total before we start to see roots coming out, but until then…  Happy Growing!!!

 Alright welcome back GreenBox Growers, here we are exactly 24 hours later from when I took these clones from the Limonchello Haze mother plant. So as you can see it is really foggy and Misty up in this humidity dumb and that is because you want that high humidity along with that high temperature. And that seedling mat is helping a lot. I've been checking on these guys a lot throughout the day because like I said you want to mist them several times throughout the day to help keep that high humidity. I have been checking on them though and I don't see any roots when peeking down into the rockwool cubes, but it usually takes up to a week anyways before you see those. But they are standing and looking really healthy and the leaves aren't drooping or anything like that so that is a good sign.

 And also at the nodes, I'm already seeing a little bit of vegetative growth, new vegetative growth coming from them. So you can see all of those little nodes, there is a little bit of growth already starting so that's a good sign as well, and now all I'm going to do is keep the same conditions. High humidity and pretty high temperature, and then mist several times throughout the day, keeping that Dome on. And I will keep you guys updated on if there are any roots poking out yet in the stems of these clones. But as I said as of now nothing on the root front.

Now this is also the same day and I want to show you how the mother plant looks the day after getting cloned. You can see she is drooping a little bit because she is thirsty and it's a little past due for her watering. But she is completely healthy no issues or signs of stress from the cloning, and fact it looks like she might have grown a little bit since yesterday in terms of vegetative growth. So today she is due for her next nutrient feeding, which is going to be the week for mix of vegetation from the fox farm feeding schedule. And I'm going to be doing that at full strength so following the week for a veg mix at full strength and then also adding one teaspoon of Cal Mag, and then pH at 6.3.

 So I have about a gallon mixed up and I think I'll be using the whole gallon this time, and then I will be missing with a plane pH watering so I'm going to have the mother plant out here by yourself for now. And I will keep updating you guys on how she is doing, I don't think I'll be doing any more low-stress training on her so I'm just going to let her grow out. But once those clones have rooted and are big enough to come out into this tent and their final pots, I'll bring them out here and have them all  in this tent together, and I'll flower them with their mother. So we will have the clones and the mother plant all flowering together and the same tent.  So before I go I want to show you guys the parts of the mother plant where I cut those clones from, so you can see how she has reacted the next day later and how it has affected that area of the plant.

 So here is one of the branches or where I cut off one of the branches from the main stalk here. And you can see there are no issues with the growth around that area, everything is still completely healthy.  Just misted it so that is why it is all wet like, but you will also see it kind of air pruned itself,  and closed up those shoots and kind of hardened it off at the end there so that nothing could get in no sort of disease or pests or anything that could affect the plants. So now you'll see I took a branch or a clone from the other side too so two clones from the same node essentially and no issues so if you do it right and are careful and gentle, your mother plant is going to be able to keep growing as if nothing even happened. So great healthy way to cut your plants for clones and not have to worry about damaging them or stressing them out and any sort of way.

 What up Growers we are back here for day 6 of the week, and it is about 3 days almost 4 days that these clones have been in the dome now, so I think it was about three and a half days ago I took the cuttings, so that means we have about another 3 to 5 days before we see roots coming out of the bottoms of these rockwool cubes. But that is a little too soon for that. So keeping same conditions , I just have them off for now just for video purposes, So you can see. But you can see all of the growth is still healthy, and I am missing throughout the day to help keep that foliage moist as you don't want it to dry out While it is trying to form those roots. So keep a little water in the tree below is that is important as well but not too much. and we will keep doing that until we get some more roots.

 All right now we are out in the garage where the mother plant is, and I just wanted to give you a quick update on her, I fed her those nutrients last night and you can see she is still looking really good and really perky. And she's got some good vegetative growth still going on. So I still have 525 Bloom Beast LED above her and it is still at that same distance and I still have the seedling dial on at 100% And then veg is on at 75% now. So I might turn that up a little bit in the next couple days here and another thing I wanted to say is in the last clip I said the Clones were taken about three-and-a-half to 4 days ago but it was actually about 2 days ago. 

I don't know why I said that but anyways that means we've got a good four to five Days at least before we start seeing roots coming out of those clones. But as I said in the video, keep doing the same thing, misting the Clones as well as your mother plant, nothing is going to change and terms of how you should be taking care of them. And for the mother plant you want to continue with the nutrient schedule so once you get to that last nutrient mix on the veg chart of whatever schedule if you are following, just keep remix seeing that whenever this time for nutrients if you are in soil that is of course. 

So no need to water the mother plant today and I will be misting still as I'm doing that several times throughout the day. And I will continue for the rest of the veg stage. And again I'm just going to let her continue to grow out here and I'm doing some LST on the lower branches that are growing up through the canopy, nothing with tie-downs, just bending them out and into the light so they can grow up into their own space. But yeah that is pretty much it and I will be back in another 24 hours for the last day of the week.

 What up Growers we are back here for the last day of week 6 and the Clones are doing really well. It actually got a little hot in here last night as well as during this morning so you will notice That some of the fan leaves the tips or the fingers of them are a little bit curled up almost like they got a little burnt, and that is just from the high heat. I did adjust that temperature, so it is not going to continue to worsen or anything like that. You do want to keep an eye on those temperatures though is that is important and I've been looking for a Roots like I keep saying, down in those holes there. 

Where the stem went, as well as for them poking out the bottom but it just still a little premature for that to be happening as it usually takes around 5 to maybe 8 days so right now we are on day 3 I think it is of being in the humidity Dome from Taken as a cutting from the mother plant. So still going to be a few more days before we are seeing roots coming out of the bottom, but expecting that to happen sometime and next week's video with will be week 7 maybe a little bit towards the middle of the week. And until then just keep the Dome completely closed and don't be opening the vents or anything like that. Keep an eye on the plants and make sure no issues are happening, and he burns or anything like that. And of course finally make sure that humidity stays high.

 All right now we are out in the garage to check on Big Mama, to see how she is doing. Just checked the soil and she doesn't need any water or anything like that, so oil is still moist about a quarter or half an inch deep that is. So maybe by tomorrow she will be ready, but anyways I will be missing her and first I want to show you guys something I like to do with my plants that are in veg. So every couple days or once or twice throughout the week I like to look underneath the canopy throughout the Foliage for leaves that are maybe dead or have already died or are starting to die and I just like to pluck those off.

 So leaves like this no longer really benefit the plant, and the reason I look for them Under The Canopy is because that is where they are going to be, just because eventually as New Growth covers them up and prevents light from reaching down below there, they don't get enough light to survive so the plant lets them go as there is no real need for them down there because no light is reaching.

If there was light down there for them to absorb, they would still be alive and would be surviving and thriving down there but they aren't getting any light, so they slowly die off. And it is best to just plug those leaves away because they aren't helping and if they fall off and go into the soil that can be kinda bad for the plant if they start decomposing in the soil.  So I just like to pull them out of there and throw them away as far away from the plants, so there is no chance of the leaves getting back in there. So a lot of people call this method defoliation, I'm just kind of taking one leaf at a time as necessary though, usually defoliation is more of a concentrated removal of leaves from the lower part of the canopy.

But anyways now that that is all gone you can see that this is everything I pulled off for now and it will help the plants a more healthy and help her focus more energy on the new Healthy Growth of top on the plant. And that is really it for today which is the last day of the week, I'm going to give them a misting now of plain pH water and we will be back for week 8 pretty shortly here and hopefully the Clones will be rooting in that week so we can put them into the Solo cups. And then shortly after that we will be moving them out here until this veg tent where they can get a little bigger like their mom right here. Alright peace guys!

 Alright folks that officially concludes this week for the groceries, and I will be back shortly with week we're hopefully these clones will be rooted by then and I can transplant them into Solo cups with some soil. Then after that it should only be a week or so before they are big enough to go out into the Veg tent in their final pots, where I will finish vegging them out with the mother plant coming and prep them for flour. As always thank you guys for watching and until next time... 


Happy Growing!!!

Week 4 of Vegetation for the Mother Plant Grow Series

T-Minus 2 Weeks till Cloning!


 
 
 

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to the most LIT Cannabis Grow Channel on YouTube!  Now today kicks off week for of vegetation for the mother plant and cloning how to grow series, and I'm going to stop low-stress training starting today because I want those tops to start growing up tall and strong so I can start cloning them and the coming weeks. So week 4 and probably week 5 or probably just going to be some vegging weeks where I just left the plant grow up and get nice and bushy, and then week 6 is probably where I will start with the cloning, so get excited for that!

So for those of you who don't already know, I do have a free trial going on for my one-on-one grow guidance, and that is where I will personally teach you over the phone how to grow cannabis. So if you have already started and you are not getting those results you are looking for or you are a first-time grower looking to get pointed in the right direction, feel free to hit me up in my email or cell phone number down below in the description and I can tell you how to sign up for that free trial, and then we can get started with that one on one grow guidance! Also don't forget to check out our MERCH at the greenboxgrown.com site, under MERCH and SMOKE.  And now that you guys know what we're doing in today's video, let's get started with day 1 of the week!

What up guys, so we are out here in the garage for day 1 of the week! And a couple things before I show you the plant up close, first off you can see how nice and big she is getting, but I raised this BloomBeast light up as high as I could. so I wrapped the cord around the bar and then kind of clipped it to itself, so it is secured pretty well and I've got that other adjustable ratchet hanger clipped onto it as well so it's kind of like a safety clip if that doesn't work. But it doesn't look like it's going to come undone anyways. But yeah I wanted to raise that because it was pretty close to the plant, and this way I can get it a lot higher and have a bigger footprint with the light. I can also get a lot better growth with the plant that way as well, so I can let it grow taller, and that's going to be good to be to let her get bigger because I will not be doing any more low-stress training. It's going to make it a lot easier for those tops to grow up nice and Tall, which is what I want as I was explaining in the intro because that is going to make it easier for cloning them and getting good healthy cuttings.

So I raised the light up as high as I could so it's about 3 and 1/2 to 4 feet from the top of the limoncello Haze mother plant here. And another thing I would like to tell you guys is the seedlings, Or well the plants that are currently seedlings right now, the NukeHead seedlings, I'm going to be moving them into this tent here in the next day or so, and there are six of them and 3 gallon smart pots. And they will just be in here for a while I finish up the Autos in that tent because that is where I will be moving them into. And the mother plant will still be in here. So anyways they are still pretty small and they will fit into here so pretty nicely with that mother plant, it won't be an issue. But I just wanted to give you guys a heads up so you knew what was going on there.

 Alright so I'm moving in to the tent here, so will I just checked it and it is still wet from that last watering that we did so no need to do a watering today, but I will be doing a plain pH misting. So going to give a good misting to all of the leaves, as that is really important at that stage and getting the undersides of all the leaves as well.  But yeah just some really good vegetative growth continuing with this mother plant, and you can just see how good all of the tops are, they are all growing nice at all. And like I said, that light is a lot higher up there, so it's not going to burn them or anything like that. It wasn't burning them everything just yet but I wasn't able to turn it up much higher than that 30% on the Veg Dial.  Again this is also going to be good because it will widen the footprint of the light, and that makes it so when I move the seedlings in here they will get it as well.

Now I want to give you guys another close up on the main stalk of the plant, because it is getting insanely big and thick. You can see it looks like a freaking tree trunk almost. But ya some nice good growth and that's a good sign of a healthy plant which is really important because we are cloning this plant. And we want to make sure that we are cloning good genetics, good healthy strong genetics. And this lemoncello Haze plant definitely has that.

So that's it for today, continue with spraying or misting your plants several times throughout the day, even at this stage. Probably only has to be 2 to 3 times and you don't have to dredge them, just give them a good coverage and keep temperature in the range of 72 to about 78 or 79 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity at 60 to 65%, and if you follow those conditions and keep your tent and not set up. And if you just follow these easy steps and keep your tent In these conditions, your plants will be nice and happy, and growing really fast just like this one here. All right guy so I will be back for Day 2 and 24 hours, peace!

Alright guys I'm back here another 24 hours later for day 2 of the week, and you can see now that I have halted the low stress training for the time being, all of these different tops that I was growing are now starting to get taller and as I was explaining that is what we want. Because you do not want them to be really short when you take the Clones are really short and stubby, so you want them to have a little height to them. Also a little space between their nose is good too, because as you can see it looks like a little baby plant right there. So here's an example of where I would take a cutting from the stop as it has grown up nice and Tall. So I would go right to the base there and cut it like right, let's see, yeah like right there. So let me give you guys a quick close up of the plant there so you can see where it is coming out of.

 There you go, so you can get an idea of where I would cut it. But yeah that would be actually a perfect cutting or clone right there so good example. I mean she is a little small to be taking them from, if you were to be taking multiple. But if you wanted you could just take one clone and she would be good, but I am trying to take several at once so I am going to wait until she is a little bigger like I keep saying. A few more weeks at least or one more week of veg before I start cutting them. But yeah, Really good growth and she is continuing nicely into the vegetative state. And all of that training has worked out really well I mean from the looks of it you would think I've taught this plant, but all this is is it low stress training no topping at all. So the soil is still pretty moist from that last watering, so no need to water right now, and all right guys that is all for today's update. No need to water like I was just saying but you can give a misting if you want, but that is pretty much it, alright peace guys!

What up GreenBox Growers we are back another 24 hours later for day 4 of the week here, and the lemon cello Hayes mother plant is continuing to have some amazing vegetative growth. So you can see there isn't an issue going on with any of that leaves on the plant, they are all in perfect health and condition, no burn deficiencies or toxicities or anything like that. Really healthy and good growth going on at the nodes at all of the different tops. And you can see I haven't been training and I'm kind of holding off on that low stress training while these seedlings are in here, because there isn't very much room or space to go round in this tent so I'm going to try and keep this plant a little smaller for the time being.

And that is why I'm kind of training the tops to go up and Tall instead of out and horizontally. You can see the tops are starting to get a lot taller as this plant is about now to ft tall, maybe almost 3 ft in some spots. And you can see this is the main top right here from the beginning, lots of good growth underneath the canopy there which is great because it shows that BloomBeast light is getting a lot of penetration through the canopy. And that is a good sign for later on when we flower, because that will help the buds underneath below the canopy getting nice development, and swell up almost as big as the colas or main cause of top. So I am excited for that and I am excited for when the seedlings can move out of this tent into the other tent, so I can start training this guy again.

Now I checked the soil and she is good on water, it is still moist an inch deep so no need for more of that. But I will continue with my misting and I've been misting throughout the day everyday and I will continue to do that for most of the vegetative stage. And remember to get underneath you know not just the tops of the leaves, but you want the undersides of the fan leaves to get some of that misting as well. So one thing I would like to point out before I grow, if you do have certain appliances on the floor of your tent like I have the mini heater right here. Be sure to pull that off of the floor or out while watering, because there will be A lot of drainage as you can see here, and you do not want your electronics or appliances like this heater sitting in water while it is on. So just pull that out of the tent until you have all of the water up off the floor however you do that. I use a wet vac to suck it up, some people just use towels depending on how much runoff they have. And then once it is all dried up you can put your heater and fans back in. So that is it for day 4 of the week and I will be back for tomorrow in another 24 hours.

What up GreenBox Growers, we are back another 24 hours later for day five of the week.You can see that vegetative growth is continuing to be explosive and it's just taking off every day. I just checked the soil and the soil is still pretty moist and not ready for a watering yet, but that next watering will be a plane pH water and. And that will be the third one since the last nutrients, so after that I will be doing its next nutrient feeding.

Since I am not doing any training and I'm just letting them grow up I am going to continue to do that while these other seedlings are in the tent. But once they do move out, I think it's going to be time to start the cloning process, you can see these tots are getting really nice and tall and they are kind of growing into their own spaces. So they are not really curled over anymore, meaning they could be some good talks. Sometimes right after you do some low-stress training on them, they kind of curl up so the branches kind of forming that s shape. And you don't Really want to clone it there, because it might be leaning over once you put it into that rockwool cube.  So waiting until it grows up makes it so you can cut it where it stays straight, that way you have a clown that is standing nice and straight and not leaning over to the side right from the get-go.

So no training or a watering today, I'm going to do another plane pH misting as usual, and I do two to three of these each day. Keeping temperature in the range of 72 to about 80 degrees Fahrenheit with the humidity of about 60 to 65%. And that is just some really good conditions and the BloomBeast light, let's see I haven't shown you guys where I have that dial lately. So looking at the diet about 35 to 40% for the bed switch, so I'm going to turn that up to about 50% right now. Because I did raise the light up higher so it is kind of tricky to see because I have the fan right there, but you can see from over here the light is raised about I would say about three feet from the top of the lemoncello Hayes.

So I'm going to turn it up to 50%, and I did have it kind of low at that 35% because I did bring these Seedlings in, And even though they aren't directly under the LED, they can still be easily affected by it. So now that they are starting to take off and growth I'm going to turn that dial up to 50% on that vegetative switch. So 50% for the vegetative switch and 100% for the seedling, and the bloom switch is still completely off. All right guys that is it for your day 5 update, just continuing that good vegetative growth and I hope all is going well with you guys and the mother plants that you are following along with during this video series.

What up Growers we are back here another 24 hours later for the very next day, and she is definitely ready for that next plane pH watering. So like I was saying this is the third plane pH watering since the last nutrient feeding, so the next watering will be that next nutrient feeding. Another thing I want to show you guys is this is a classic sign of being under watered, or just a sign that she is ready for some more water. You can see the leaves are kind of drooping, they are not curled down and really tight like they are full and heavy with water. Instead they are just kind of like tissue paper and they are kind of just hang in there a little bit lifelessly. They are not dead or anything like that, they're just thirsty and ready for some water. The soil is pretty dry, a little drier than it should be before I water, but that is all right because now I can show you guys what that looks like when she is under watered.

 Now this isn't the end of the world she will perk back up when I give her some more of this ph water, but you don't want to do this too frequently to your plans as it will stress them out and eventually lead to some long-term problems. So be sure to water them once they are ready, of course an inch deep in the soil that is the best way to check when growing in the fox farm ocean Forest. So I'm going to give her some of that plain pH water now at 6.3 of course. All right so since I waited a little longer to water this time I'm going to be sure to give her a little extra, just to hold her over. Now I'm probably going to give her about a half a gallon to 3/4 of a gallon, I don't think she really needs a full gallon just yet. And that is the other thing with these Air roots pots, which is something I still need to get used to, because I have only use them a few times. They dry out a lot faster than plastic pots and even faster than those of fabric smart pots.

 So giving them a whole bunch more water isn't really going to do much, because Kind of just runs out of those holes at the sides and the bottom, so all you really have to do is give the oil as soaking and then you are good. All right guys so that covers this pH water, and like I said this is the third one since that last nutrient feeding. So once this lemoncello Hayes mother plant is ready for that next watering, it is going to be the next nutrient feeding. All right guys that concludes today's video and I will be back in another 24 hours for your next update.

 Alright Growers we are back here 24 hours later for the last day of week 4. You can see actually, she is showing her sex at the tops of the plants at well, she is not flowering but you can see these top notes here or just at the top you can see the slight pistol that she is forming. Just to show her sex, they are kind of curled under there on the sides, but yeah she is not flowering yet, but she is looking really good, really healthy, no damage and just really monstrous growth. again I am using that Fox farm Dirty Dozen, so that is working out really well for the nutrients, and I am hoping by the end of this next week or by the middle of the week I will have the seedlings out tent can move her back to the middle and do a little bit more training or start thinking about taking some clones As she is pretty much already there. Maybe one more week in the vegetative stage, but I really want to get started with these clowns because I do want to get these babies and flower.

Because I do have a feeling these Limoncello Haze seeds are going to be some really good quality genetics, seeing as they are already doing really well and have some really Vigorous vegetative growth. So hopefully by the end of next week's video or the very beginning of the week after that, we will be taking some clones from this lemoncello Haze plant, and going on from there. Alright peace guys!

Alright green box Growers that concludes week 4 of the cloning and how to grow a mother plant series. And I am thinking it is going to just be a couple more weeks before I start cloning this Limoncello Haze plant. Now I will be back shortly with week 5 of this grow series, and in the meantime feel free to smash that thumbs-up button if you enjoyed the video. And also feel free to comment below with your feedback or ideas for a future videos you would like to see me do.

Week 3 of Vegetation for the Mother Plant & Cloning Grow Series

Explosive Growth by the Limoncello Haze Mother Plant


 
 
 

What Up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to the most Lit Cannabis grow Channel on YouTube! Now today I am officially starting week 3 of my mother plant and cloning how to grow series, and I am going to be continuing with the lst and watering schedule this week. I was also talking in the last or at the end of the last video about how there is probably only going to be three to four more weeks of veg, maybe less, before I start taking clones, just because of how fast this limoncello Haze plant has been growing. now I expect a lot more vegetative growth this week, and hopefully a whole new set of Topps will be coming up below the canopy, because I will be continuing that low-stress training.

 Now before I get started with this week's a video, I want to remind you guys that if you are struggling with your first cannabis grow or looking for help on where to get started, feel free to hit me up as I help people vote for the phone one on one with some grow guidance. And you can see down in the description that there is a link to my patreon page as well as my email and phone number, and if you hit me up there on my contact info I do have a free trial going on to that one on one grow guidance going on right now. So feel free to contact me and ask me how to sign up for that, and again if you do sign up I will be helping you each day over the phone just showing you what needs to be done so you can get the best results possible. I also want to remind you guys to check out our merch under the Merch and Smoke section at greenboxgrown.com, and now that you know what we are doing in today's video let's get started with day 1 of the week!

Alright Growers here we are for the first day of week 3 for the mother plant and cloning series, and you can see the Limoncello Haze mother plant is just blowing up with explosive vegetative growth. So the top there is leaning a little bit just because I was working a little bit of LST on her, and I decided that today I'm going to show you guys that I'm going to try that main top down one more time, and you can see some more main tops have already been popping up through the canopy here. However there is a good set I don't know if I can give you a shot on them, but there is a big set of new Topps coming up, let's see, yeah I will show you guys once I put the camera down and start bending. But there is a couple new Tops coming up through the canopy, so once I Tie this down and expose light to that area, those are going to shoot up probably by tomorrow to be honest.

 Because I mean this lady has been growing so fast I mean literally night and day you can see a change. So, I watered yesterday with the plane pH water so we are good today for that no need to water, and I just checked the soil it is definitely still moist very wet actually. So yeah we are good for a while on that. So okay here is the mother plant all ready for her training and I've got my piece of gardening tie right here soft Garden wire. And I'm going to show you guys again using that same hook method. So it's this Mane top right here I'm going to be pulling down, and I'm going to do it right in this direction so it exposes these tops. I don't know if you can see that there's a big Branch coming up right here. And then right here there's another big top as well.

So I am going to pull her down right in this direction and then hook it again on the side one of the knobs, and I am kind of doing this strategically as you will see the way I am pulling and I'm not going to be covering up any tops that are trying to come up through the canopy. So this is really for maximum yields or / maximum tops to grow them up to the bottom of the canopy. So first I'm just going to Loop this hook right around the main top. And I'm probably going to do it right below you can see this node right here with the 2 tops growing up, let me give you guys a close up on that. 

So here is the note and you can see there's the top right there and then one on the other side, so right below right here is where I'm going to Anchor that hook for that LST. So I'm just going to get her back in position for that shot, here we go and I'm going to turn the pot a little bit so you can see where I am pulling her a little better. Right here, and then I'm going to just Loop that around and you can Loop it around a couple times if you want but one time is usually enough. And again I am trying not to get any leaves or branches caught up in it. It can be difficult doing that but yeah, the least amount of damage possible is what you want to do at all times. So always being gentle, as these ladies can be sensitive so. Alright I've got the hook on there without damaging any of these new tops and now I'm just going to pull it down to about right there and then I'm going to loop around.

And you can see once you have it hooked around that Branch, it's pretty strong and you can pull pretty tightly and it's not going to pull off and that's how you know it's going to be a reliable anchor. And then there I'm just going to loop around a couple of these knobs like that and then we are all done. Now you will notice not a footprint of the light is going to have to be a lot wider because now this planet is a lot wider, so I'm going to hopefully raise the light a little more and hopefully turn on that vegetative switch so I can get some more wattage in here, cuz again I am still on that seedling dial only. 

You can see there has been a lot of growth since yesterday so there is a lot of tops, and now you can see now that I've done this low stress training you can see I am exposing a lot more growth that is now going to grow up through the canopy, so that's going to be really good. And I'll be back to show you guys. Tomorrow and another 24 hours, and I am betting that this talk will be pointed back up towards the sky. And I bet you this top or these two tops that I just exposed I bet they are going to blow up, and I bet there will be a few more others That blow up through the canopy.

 Alright guys I'm all done today with the training, but before I go I will just wanted to give you a quick aerial view of what that will look like and to give you kind of an idea of what I am going for. So you can see I've got tons of light being exposed below the canopy and the ideas that now all of those little branches are going to grow up and become Bane tops. And you can see that's the main top right there that I just pulled over, and it's pulling almost down to the ground but like I said I bet by tomorrow it's going to be pointing right back up towards the sky and a ton of more tops that are growing back up.

Alright Growers, here we are 24 hours later for day 2 of week 3, and yesterday was that last pull down with low stress training on that main chop, and it's already turned back up and is pointing back towards the sky and I am really stoked because it does look like we have achieved that kind of tabletop shape of the plant. So that is great for growing tons of talked, and of course that is what we want to do in this gross serious because we're going to clone this plant and turn all those tops into their own separate plants. So I'm going to give you guys a quick look at that new growth, you can see from this angle everything is pretty much standing straight up, it is growing towards the right of the pot so I'll start training things towards the left By tying down some of those branches.

 But you'll see right here it's basically just a flat table top where all the branches are kind of at the same height widening out instead of growing outwards. Like that normal shape that you would think of, so that is good because that is what I want to do here. All right guys to the plant is ready for its next watering, as you can see here this soil is dry and inch deep, and she is ready for her next nutrient feeding. So that is what I have mixed up here today, and I will be doing the week 2 of vegetation mix. 

So you can see right there that is what I mixed up, I did it at half strength because this is only the third nutrient feeding, so for example when it calls for 6 teaspoons I just do 3, and then I mix it up and do a half a teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water, and then pH it to six point three. I will also give her a misting after the watering. So there will not be any LST training today, but I will start that up again tomorrow with these branches over here that are growing up. And I'm going to start training them into this Direction over to the left, so that I can start growing over to that part of the pot and not All leaning over to one side.

Now I will do that nutrient watering, and at this point you'll probably want to do about three-quarters maybe a half a gallon to 3/4 of a gallon of water for a plant of this size, we will see in this pot how much runoff we get, but I have a whole gallon mixed up and I probably won't use all of that but again at this point you want to be getting all of the soil wet and not just water at the center. So water all the way to the edges of the pot all the way around, and you do want to be getting run off at this point. 

Maybe like 5 to 10%. So I'm going to let this and then I'll give it a little bit more, but right now do that plane pH misting and you'll see if you do have that dirty dozen it does have a foliar spray on it. The flower kiss foliar spray, I'm not using. Just cuz I like to use the plane pH water on the leaves. I've never really noticed too much of a difference with the foliar spray, maybe I will do a comparison video one day or comparison grow where I do use a foliar spray versus not. But you can see I'm still getting a lot of great vegetative and Healthy Growth with these leaves without that. So letting that soak a little bit and then I will finish giving them a little bit more nutrients, but that is.

Alright Growers here we are another 24 hours later for the very next day and growth is just continuing to take off, we've got tons of tops continuing up through the canopy here. And you can see that was the main original top right here and you can still kind of towel because of the big fan leaves surrounding it, but you can also see these ones over here look just about as big as that one. And if you remember these if you days ago these were just tiny little leaves, that were just Under The Canopy so now they look just as big as that main top I've been turned down. She doesn't need any new water in the soil today as she's good on that, but I will miss like I do everyday several times throughout the day.

 And you can see here, these cops are starting to get some good height to them, and I'm going to do some training just the 3-finger LST on these ones, and that is just to continue with letting more light and underneath. And I unhook that but I will retire in a second here, and again that is going to continue with letting more light into below the canopy so that more of those tops can grow up and become main big ones like these ones here. So just out and away from the middle of the plant and let's see, so here for example if you can see for example that little talk right there. That is what most of these tots, so like this guy right here that is what most of these tots that are up here through the main canopy Looked like when they first started.

And then once I trained the tops above them out of the way so they got some light, they turned into these big guys here. And you can see they've got pretty stick stocks already almost as if, check out this one back here that's going to be a really good clone right there and I bet it will produce several different tops from it. But anyways that's really it for today just continue once every couple days with that, and I will show you once I tie things down. The light is still just on that seedling switch only so I'm thinking maybe next week I will turn on the bed switch I haven't decided yet though. And this is still growing really well so there isn't really a need for that. 

Keeping temperature and humidity of the same 60 to 65% And for temperature, anywhere in the range from 70 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit. Or I guess before I go I also want to give you a quick aerial view just to show you what the plant looks like from above after the training. And you can tell when you've done a good job because you can see the main stalk here you can see how exposed it is too light. We're before it had all these tops covering up that area, so that's just going to help create a lot more explosive growth up from the canopy. And again I will be back in 24 hours to show you guys how this training takes effect.

Alright Growers we are here another 24 hours later for the very next day of the week and you can see there are tons of growth going on here in terms of vegetative growth, and there are a lot more tops. So let's get in for a closer look here so I can show you really quick and aerial shot. And you can see how wide the plan is getting at this point. So we are keeping it short as you can see but we are growing her wide like that table top shape I've been mentioning earlier and that last clip. And that is so we can maximize the amount of tops we can get without having to grow her too tall and have that lighting not reaching below the canopy. Growing It Wide makes it easier to get light to all of the tops because if they are all right they're getting the same amount of exposure to the light.

 Today today I don't think I will be doing any training as I will just let them grow up some more so they can get taller. In terms of the tops, and then what I will do tomorrow is tie them down a little bit so that they are out wider. You can see this top here is growing pretty tall and that'll be so I can why not the base out there. So you can see, let's see we got one top there, two three tops there and then another fourth one, right there, if it's right there, 6th, 7th, and 8 one so I'll tuck this Leaf under there so this guy can pop up and that'll help you at the 8th and going. There a potential clones right there right off the bat. And we are only what is its week 3 of veg.

So that is pretty good and I am still going to give them a few more weeks of veg or her a few more weeks of veg so we can get some more potential clones, but yeah it for now just going to be misting  with a plain pH water and I checked the soil a little bit ago and is still really moist so I don't need to water today. Keeping temperature in that same range of 72 to about 79 or 78 degrees Fahrenheit and then around 65% free humidity. Or I guess so that is it for today and I will be back in another 24 hours for the next day of the week. All right now so let me give you a zoomed-out shot again so you guys can just see how big this Limoncello has mother plant is really getting.

Alright guys we are back here for day 5 of the week And she's going to be ready for some more LST today so I will be demonstrating that on some of the new tops that popped up, but just to give you guys a quick idea of how much growth there has been as of late. She is definitely taking off and getting that perfect bushy shape which is great but like I keep mentioning. And I don't even think I'll need to top her because she was growing just as me to Tops as we need just with the LST training. The new tops that I'm going to be pulling down today or going to be on the left side and I will be pulling them towards the left side of the pot just so I can fill out that area. 

I am going to tie down this guy right here, this one right there and then Vince one there and I'm going to going to pull them out or fan them out in that direction and that will allow New Growth to go to the left of the pot as well as New Growth from upload a canopy there. So I've got three different pieces of my gardening wire or soft wire, and I'm just going to use that same hook method and then tie it off on one of the knobs here on the side of the pot. So I always tie down the tallest top first because that's going to expose the most amount of light to the below the canopy, and then I can strategically placed the rest around it.

So this guy right here is definitely the tallest top out of the three, so I'm just going to Loop this around the neck if you will right below this first node. So I'm going to do it right there, and just hook this anchor on. Just like that, and then you're going to pull it down gently of course and tie it to the side of the pot. So down like that and it's very hard for me to do it without blocking the camera so let me do this real quick and I'll be right back.

Alright so I just turn the pot so I can give you guys a better angle here what I am doing, and I'm going to move this camera back a little bit. So here it is the top with that gardening tie around it so I'm just going to pull it down so that it is facing basically directly out towards the inside of the tent. It does not need to be pointing down towards the ground if you know what I mean, the talk come on all you have to do is bend it said it's basically at a 90 degree angle just pointing out straight horizontally.

So that was the first top and now I will do this one here, and the third one was this one here, so this one's actually taller so I'll do that one first. And you can see these all came, I'm going to give you guys are close up inside the canopy so you guys can see where these tops are coming from. So this one I tied down right there you can see it just came from the main stock. Part of that first LST been that I did, And then this next one here same thing just a little bit earlier actually in the stock, then this monster right here you can see how thick the stock is on this one already.

 It just came out from the side there. Right there, so you can almost see how it is kind of like, you can kind of tell from the training it swells up like there is a ball right there. And that is just from the stress of the training, but that is a good sign because that also means the plant is focusing more nutrients and energy towards that area to get it big and strong. So now let me finish with these other two tops that I am pulling down.  So I'm going to do this tall one first right here and just get the collar around and I'm actually going to go below this second note here. Just because I'd have some good Healthy Growth so I can get some extra tots out of it that way. And I'm just going to pull it down in this direction so it's away from everything else. And kind of had that new section grown out here. Because you do want to even the plant out and you don't want to grow it out all the one side or area of the pot.

Alright so now let me just reanchor that one, and now that one finally can be pulled down. Just the same technique and I'm going to go below that second note from the top, and I'm going to give you guys a quick close up here in a second of these little baby tops that are already forming below, just so you can see what they look like when they are at the very start. All right so there you go, all of them have been pulled down that I will be doing for today, and then here I will show you those very small leaves right there. They are going to grow out and becomes very made tops just like the main ones we've just pulled down that they are growing out of. So that is what they look like in the very beginning And you can see there are another two right here on this node and then a couple coming out of these notes right here.

 So tons of new tops coming out from everywhere and you can see now with these new ones that I tied down it is exposing a lot of light to the center there and I am also noticing the plant lives looking like it's ready for me to turn on that Veg Dial, Alright guys I'm going to turn on that veg dial now on the lowest possible setting so let's see not on yet.  Okay so right there in about 30%, I have the ved switch on and of course keeping the seedling dial on at a full 100% is that is how you're supposed to run these lights.

This plant isn't ready for a water and yet today I just felt the soil and still pretty moist at the top so you want it to be dry and inch deep before you water again, but I will give a plate PH missing right here. And I have been misting this plan about two to three times each day and you should be doing the same. Temperature and humidity still in the same range as always, and you can see this tie down has exposed a lot of light to the very center here of the plant. And again maybe even 2 weeks or 3 weeks I will be taking clones from her.

 Because she  is growing really well in this vegetative state here and is growing really well. She is really responding fast to all of the trading as well which is nice. This is nice also because it shows this is going to be some really good genetics that I am cloning. Sometimes if you clone a plant that glows really slowly or isn't very bigger S or showing healthy signs of a good plant or of a good strong genetic plant. If you clone that kind of plant you will get the same kind of results with the Clones. So cloning a plant that grows really well just like this is going to be good because those clones are going to have the same characteristics and are going to grow really well also.

What up folks it's another 24 hours later so we are back for six of the week here, and again just continuing with this awesome vegetative growth here and I am honestly seeing you toss here every day that are coming up through the canopy. So at this point I'm going to hold off with the low stress training so these tops can get a little taller and become suitable for taking as cuttings or clones. Because I do think at this point she is ready within a couple weeks or at least within a couple weeks of being ready to clone. So the soil is dry at this point in inch deep, so she is ready for her first plane pH watering since that last nutrient feeding, and I got it pH at 6.3. Again you can see this is the original main top right over here in the corner. But you can tell that there are so many other tops of grown up or if not bigger. 

And they all started their Journey down at the road or at the base note of one of the tops just like that. Just a little leaf. So all it takes is exposing that little guy too some light coming eventually it's going to grow up into a big top like this one or any of these honestly that is up on the top of the canopy. So now I'm going to give it that plane pH watering, and I've got about a gallon mixed up here at six point three. But I am probably only going to use half of that gallon at most, and let me give you guys a good shot of the soil so you guys can see. 

Okay so at this point soaking all of the topsoil as you don't want to leave anything wet so go out to the to the edge of the pot, I'm sorry I mean you don't want to leave anything tries to go all the way out to the edge of the pot and you should be getting a good amount of runoff at this point. Because we are getting a good size plant here, so I would say anywhere from 10 to 15% run off at this point is good. So don't need to give too much, and as you can see the soil starting to wash around a little bit, so I'm just going to give it that for now and then let it soak in and then I'll probably water another quarter of that gallon. 

But you can see we are getting a good amount of runoff here,  so that's it for today and I'm going to give her another plane pH misting as usual that's a daily thing Still. And then let me give you guys a quick aerial view just so you can see how big this plant is really getting. But you can see these two tops are kind of getting intertwined with each other, so I'm just going to bend them away so they grow apart. But yeah this lady is really doing well very vigorous growth which is good, Like I was saying because cloning that you were going to get the same kind of genetics are genes in the Clones that you are taking because it's going to be an identical replica of the mother plant therefore it is called a clone. 

So yeah really fast and strong vegetative growth, can't wait to see how these plants flower because if it is going to grow like this during veg that means it's going to have some really good results during the flowering stage so very exciting stuff to come. People were mentioning to check and make sure to check it is a female. This is a feminized seed and I have been checking, but let's see if I can get you guys a close up here I'm going to try and get a close-up on one of these tops so you can see how it is showing its sex already. So here you can see we've got that new growth going out under there, and then there is also like right there you can see there is a little kind of white pistol that is forking off from the very side right there just touched it, and that is that you're female growth. 

It's kind of like a white pistol that you can see growing and it's kind of to the left and between and it's kind of in between that main top and that little node and is kind of like that little white hair hold on. Not really showing, see how there's kind of that white pistol like right at the tip of my finger there. It's like in between that little top growing out of the left and then the note. And that is how you can tell, so you guys as how you're going to tell the sex of your plants and if there were little pollen sacs or balls growing that's how you know it would be a male. It wouldn't be that big  at this point but you would be able to tell it is kind of the precursor to that growth. 

As you saw we had those little white hairs growing like when Bud start to form and that is how you can tell it is a female. Again it's going to come from the note which is like where you will see new growth and new small baby growth coming from under the top, so it's usually were branches fork out from the main stock. And that is where the new growth and the sex of the plant will show. Alright guy said that is it for today's update and I will be back for your next one and another 24 hours.

What up Growers we are back here another 24 hours for the last day of week 3, and I've got a few cool things to show you guys. So first of all lots of really nice vegetative growth, and again I have that veg switch on and now it's at about 35% there, so that seedling dial is at 100% and veg switch at 30%. But anyways really good vegetative growth going and you can see the main top is really flourishing over here, but there are more new tops that have popped up through Under The Canopy and these two are the most noticeable, but something I found earlier this mean top got really strong and pulled the anchor here or the clip that was wrapped around the Buy a tie down wrapped around the pot, it ripped it off of there so I had to tape it And wrap it around.

 So you can see the stock is getting really thick, and let me see if I can get a good shot okay here you go you can see the stock here I mean it's about as thick as my finger is like my index finger. So getting really big and then I wanted to give you guys a better close up to give you or show you the part of the plant that is showing the sex I didn't really get a good shot of it yesterday. But what we are looking for as those white Pistols that is kind of what you see coming out tops when they start to form, they usually start coming out of here during flower, but these kind of come out of the node area where a new pair of tops would typically be growing out of. 

So yeah it's really easy to find it's kind of just coming out from the note here and it's just coming out from the middle of that growth and you will see a little white pistol. All right so yeah you can see right from the plant where it Forks out with those new branches you can see the white pistol is right up there. Kind of curling in right at the tip of my fingernail and you can see. So I just kind of touched it be a thinner than those green pieces of foliage there and they are usually kind of coming out from the middle of those and it is just that white hair.

 And that shows you or signifies that this is a female plant, so that is good because we want to clone her obviously for the series so we want her to be a female and not a male. All right guys so now to finish  up the day, I'm going to give a plane pH misting cover all that foliage from up top and underneath and kind of spray up from the ground like that to get the undersides of the leaves that way. So it was still really more since we did that watering yesterday believe it was but going to hold off on the list stress training for a few more days just so that  branches continue to grow up.

Alrighty green box Growers that concludes week 3 of the mother plant and how to clone groceries. And like I have been saying, I am probably just going to let her grow a few more weeks In that vegetative growth before I take the Clones that way I love this talk to grow nice and Tall so I can get some nice healthy clones from them. So it's going to get really exciting here in the next couple of weeks because I will be cloning this limoncello haze mother plant around then. And once I do cloner I'm going to let those clones grow up nice and bushy and it's a good size plants, and then once I feel they're ready or big enough and size I'm going to let those  clones go into flower as well as the mother plant. So we will be able to see if there's any differences in terms of vegetative or flower growth between the clones and the mother plant that they came from.

Alright guy says always if you enjoyed the video please don't forget to smash that thumbs-up button and to comment below with your feedback, as well as with ideas for future  videos you would like to see.

How to grow a Mother Plant & Clone Her


 
 
 

What's up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to another lit episode of GreenBox Grown! So today I am really excited to announce that I will be  starting my cloning and mother plant how to grow series, and the reason behind this is I just passed up my second patreon goal in the last month, so huge shout out to my Patrons who have been signing up as I couldn't be doing this without you guys! And now before I get started I got to tell you Guys as always to check out our MERCH at GreenBoxGrown.com under the Merch and Smoke section, and of course don't forget to check out our patreon page if you're not already signed up. Where you can sign up for one-on-one growing advice from myself. All right now that you guys know we're doing today's video, let's get started! 

All right guys here we are in my garage with the set up where I'll be growing my mother plant telling and also where I will be growing the clothes once I cut them. So you'll see I've got this 2 by 4 grow tent and then I've got my to propagation and humidity domes which is where the cuttings will go. I'm going to be putting the cuttings into rockwool cubes, these are the 1.5 of 1.5 no 2in X 2in. And then I've also got myself some clonex rooting gel which will be my rooting hormone. So for the mother plant I will be growing it in either at 4 or 5 gallon smart pot with some Fox Farm ocean forest. And then here is of course the bloom Beast row light that I was talking about, that I got hooked up with by the people over at Bloom Beast. What's really cool about this light is it has 3 adjustable settings.

3 dial so you can adjust them so one for seedling here one for veg, and then flower. So I'm going to turn this guy on the show you So what I'll be doing is all the using this late for the entire grow from seedling all the way to veg for the mother plant and then I'm also going to use it for the clothes so I can show you guys versatile this light can be. And then of course if I decide to flower these clones and mother plant afterwards all use this light as well. So here we are with the seedling knob, so I guess it's just the middle lights there. And then you keep that on and go to the veg 1 once you're in veg, and it's adjustable so you can slowly adjust it and increase.  And then there's flower And you get those red lights. All right so that is the setup and that's what I'm going to be doing. Well actually let me go show you guys the seed right now that'll be growing into the mother plant.

All right all right so I'm going to be going this Limoncello Haze seed for my mother plant, so I just put them in the paper towel today so hopefully will be cracking open and ready to plant in the next couple of days which I will be planting this one into a rockwool cube as well. And a huge shout-out to Amsterdam marijuana seeds for hooking me up with these lemoncello Haze seeds, I'm really stoked about these genetics.

What's up green box Growers were back here 24 hours later and my lemoncello hay seed has germinated to the point where it's Taproot is just half an inch in length. So now I'm going to plan it into my rockwool Cube and get that into the seedling phase so let's check that out. Here we go with the Limoncello Haze Seed and I have this plate over the top because it helps keep the water in as well as keeps it dark which is helpful. So there we go yeah it's well over half an inch in length their the Taproot that is as you can see so very healthy and again this seed came from Amsterdam marijuana seeds as they hooked me up so huge shout out to them for that and this is their limoncello Haze. 

 All right so I have my rockwool cubes here the 2-inch by 2-inch blocks, and you're going to keep that rapper on the outside for now and then there is the whole it got a little here I'm going to get a different one is this whole got mashed in.  All right so this one still has a good home for the seed to go into, and the first step is to get your water PH that 5.8, so I've got a little bowl of that and I'm going to soak this rockwool cubes for 10 seconds. Once it's done soaking your not going to squeeze it or anything like that you're just going to shake it and take it out of there and then you're all done.

 All right so you can let it drip a little if you want it's going to be heavier because it's not full of water but that is good it's what you want, and now I'm going to put the seed in. So very important to do it root down and to be extremely gentle during this process, you don't want to damage the root or anything like that. It does sometimes get a little curled up like it has done here but you just want to slowly work it until you got it again Root Down and push it so it's below the surface and then you're going to want to cover that hole up so no light can get in. And I usually just smash it together like this. Just so you can so you don't see that root or seed in there anymore. And then you're good I'll write properly planted and time to put it into the tray and under the light. And again it's got the seedling heat pad underneath and you're also going to want to have some water in the slats of the tray. So I'm going to pour that from the bowl and you really only want the slots a little bit filled up so that the root can come down the rockwool cube and drink from it. You don't need it to be underwater or anything like that so just like this is good and that will help keep humidity high.

 All right so now you're going to want to Have a bottle of water that is pHd for misting the interior of the Dome as well as the seedling once it sprouts. So I've got the Dome all missed it and you want to make sure it's completely closed and sealed all the way around the edges as well as with the vents completely closed up top. Making sure the corners are pressed all the way down from the lid and now the seed is planted and all we have to do is turn the light on and we are good to go. I've got this about two feet above the plants on the 18 hours on 6 hours off timer, and I'm just going to turn the Seedling dial to 50% so we will see how they handle that.   Make sure the line is right above the humidity Dome and there we go, this will probably be sprouted up by the end of today or early tomorrow and I will be back to show you what that looks like.

 What app green box Growers here we are another 24 hours later And we will actually be seeing that the plant has sprouted do the rock woke you. It's a little bit on the yellow side and a little short because I'm guessing I have the light turned on too high so I dialed the light down a little bit even though it's on just the seedling setting, usually when they pop up they are Green we will actually be seeing that the plant has sprouted through the rockwool Cube. It's a little bit on the yellow side and a little short because I'm guessing I have the light turned on too high so I dialed the light down a little bit even though it's on just the seedling setting, usually when they pop up they are Green and this one is not super yellow it's just got some signs of light stress so.  

I didn't raise the light up I just turn the dial down a little bit and that was it, but I think nothing to worry about here. Humidity is really high and temperature is on point. I'm just misting the interior of the Dome as well as making sure there's just a little water down there for the rockwool cube to drink up. 

All right guys we are back 4 day 3 of being in the rockwool cube, and actually it started stretching little bit this evening did so what I did was starting lowering the light the bloom Beast a little bit, I have the dial turned on right now at 45% for the seedling 1 so I'm going to see at this Lower Height how that works. Just providing the same conditions misting with plain pH water and making sure there is water in that tray below. this one's dried up a little bit so I can put some more water in and then that's really it for now. Hopefully tomorrow we will see a lot more growth now that I lowered the light and you'll see that first set of serrated fan leaves has started to grow. It's just really small and the Cotyladon leaves have formed and the leaves have gone back to being fully green and healthy so we are back on track with everything. All right I will be back in 24 hours with another update where hopefully this guy is showing some vegetative growth.

All right green box Growers we are back another day later and I think I have figured finally figured out this light because it does well I've got it a lot closer as you can see and it is now allowing the seedling to get some good growth going. So here's a nice little close up it's got its first little set of serrated leaves there and she is now working on that next set keeping it moist in there and nothing crazy. Just making sure there's always some water in the tree below and then you're good.

Alright Growers here we are another day later and the seedling is actually ready to go into a solo cup up with some Fox Farm ocean Forest soil. So the supplies that you are going to need of course is your spray bottle with plain pH water at 6.3. you're going to want to Solo cup with plenty of drainage so I cut out holes with plenty of slits around all the edges. And then finally the fox farm ocean Forest potting soil, I'm going to be keeping this guy in the humidity Dome after transplant for now and I will show you guys now the root coming out of the bottom.  With the bloom Beast light I've got going here it's on the seedling stage at 100%. At this height that seems to be what's working best so you can see the foliage growing up top and we've got that second set of serrated leaves that is coming in and out of the bottom you can see that small root right there.

All right so I'm going to keep the light where it is for now, may raise it a little bit after transplant but the first step for transplant is you're going to want to take this rockwool Cube will actually I'm going to fill up my Solo Cup first so I like to fill it up so that once the rockwool cube is in here it is just about a quarter of an inch below the lid of the cup so you can cover it with some dirt and it's not too low. So I just like to fill it up about 3/4 of the way with soil and don't want to pack it, you want to keep it really nice and broken up and loose in the cut. So I'm going to say filling it up about that much is perfect and then what you're going to want to do is take a rockwool cube and remove the rapper around it. You want to leave it on while it's just in the queue but once you're going to transplant it's time to remove it.

 The best way to do that is with some scissors which I've got right here so yeah this guy got pretty tall Because I had the light to high up it just seem like a light that I could have further away but anyways. So now I'm just going to remove that and sometimes you'll see some routes it looks like you're just about to be poking out of there out the side and then they kept going back down. And then once you take it you can trash that and place the rockwool cube and place it in the soil so it's actually lining up pretty good like that. All right so fully transplanted in there covered up the top and filled in the sides where the rockwool cube wasn't sitting in the cut fill that up with soil and gently packed on top. So one thing is one thing is cool about putting it in the cup as you can shorten it if they stretched.  you can actually shorten up that stem by burying it and covering it was so oil so that way I can just grow roots and that way it won't be so lanky. Another thing is you can see how it is leaning to the side because it is so tall and lanky and you can fix that but I just kind of packing the soil to the side and helping it stand straight up.  

Now tomorrow this guy should look a lot better and have a lot thicker of a stem now that it's got the support system. So now the final step is to just give it of light watering and then I'm missing you just want to get those roots growing out of the rockwool cube. And that is normal for the soil to kind of fall off so that's why you want to do it kind of slowly and it's just kind of going to get used to the water since it's been so dry and it's packing itself in a little bit. It's pretty aerated right now since it's been dry. But be sure to keep it so that your plan is still standing up right after the watering and then give it a misting and you are all done. And I'm going to be keeping it in the same conditions and terms of heat and I'll be keeping it in the humidity down as I want that humidity to be high. I've got a little bit of water in the slats Below in the tray and that's it. I'm keeping vents closed for now but I will probably start opening them tomorrow in the video.

 What up GreenBox Growers I am back here for the next day of the cloning series and it looks like I really figured out the right height for this grow light as we are getting a lot of fast growth now. Again this is the limoncello Haze feminized and you can see these leaves are just blowing up now. So continuing with the mistings each day several times throughout each day and again keeping some in the bottom of the tray. And what I am watching out for right now is roots coming out of the bottom of the Solo Cup so of course not there yet but you want to keep an eye on that cuz once you are around that stage it's going to be close to time for transplant to this guy.  So going to put the Dome back over now that I missed it and as always I got to crack these open a little more each day so I am about a quarter of the way open for each of these. I'm going to leave it like that and that's really it for now.

What's up GreenBox Growers were back here a day later with the Limoncello Haze seedling which is really starting to take off. She's probably only a couple days away from her first nutrient feeding, so let's take a look here to see that new veg growth. So she's basically growing a new set of fan leaves each day. So looking really good and healthy to she's got one two three and working on her 4th set of fan leaves. So tomorrow or either the next day I will probably be giving her her  first nutrient feeding which will be at 1/4 strength.  I let the tray dry out today so I'm going to refill it a little bit and I'm going to give her a good misting here.

All right guys this is the very next day and she is ready for her very first nutrient feeding so let me show you before hand.  First off what's really nice as you can see how big and nice and thick and the stock of the plant is getting which is a great sign of a healthy and vigorous plant, which is of course what you want when you are cloning 1. So you can tell this is ready for nutrients because she's got this one set down here second third and now the fourth is just about to finish. So that's how you know she's just about ready for that nutrients feeding and tomorrow I will be transplanting into the big airpot. 

So the way you can tell she is ready for transplant is the four sets of fan leaves and of course the roots coming out the bottom but I don't want to transplant right after this nutrient watering so I'm going to do the water in, let it dry out for the next day and then transplant. So for a Seedling first nutrient feeding you want to do it with the ceiling and cuttings mix which on the fox farm feeding schedule is this first one right here. I do it at 1/4 strength since it's the first nutrient feeding, that's what's always worked best for myself, and then I always add Cal Mag so I'm trying to work up to 1 teaspoon per gallon of water. So that means a quarter teaspoon for this feeding. And then since I'm in regular soil with a fox farm ocean Forest I ph to 6.3.

All right guys I've got my nutrient mix right here in this cut it doesn't look very strong and that is of course good cuz you don't want to shock them with the first nutrient feeding. I've got this rockwool Cube here and that is something I will show you later with that is 4 and right now I'm just going to do the watering. So you're going to want to be sure to water all of that topsoil and you're going to want to get a decent amount of runoff so try and do it slowly there's going to be a good amount of spillage but that's alright because if it goes into the tray in the bottom it’ll just soak it up later. Just give it a good little watering there and then I'm going to leave some of the solution in the trade down below and that's really it for the water in, now just misting with the plane watering like I do everyday. Keeping the seedling light, I mean keeping the light just on the seedling mode for now I'll turn back on once I'm done transplanting.  

But anyways, now I'm going to show you guys what this rockwool cube is 4. So the nutrients feeding is done and I'm going to put the lid back on I've got water in the tray and you'll notice the vents are completely open and they have actually been fully open for the last two days I forgot to mention that. So now I'm going to move to the next stage which is having the tray propped open for the lid propped open with this rockwool Cube. So keeping the vents open and then doing that as well as going to help keep the plant used to the lower humidity climate.

What up GreenBox Growers here were are 24 hours and today is officially the day I'm going to transplant the Limoncello haze seedling into its final pot. So it's kind of passed the seedling phase now so it's not a Seedling anymore, it's more in the veg state so let's say it's about to start Week 1 of veg for this plant.  So in this video I'm going to show you guys the transplanting process and what I will be doing next 4 this future mother plant. All right now it's check it out. So I've got the air route spot right here in one thing I forgot to mention about this as you don't really have to put this on the table or anything since it self drains itself. And has that little lip at the bottom that keeps it off of the ground and allows the water too kind of flow out the bottom and out of the sides.

 All right GreenBox Growers I've got the pot filled up almost all of the way And I actually filled it up higher than I was saying because I like to do this little trick I've shown you guys before where I kind of been print a little pre-press spot with the cup.   so you wanted to be directly in the middle of the part of course and then you want it to be deep enough so that once in there is not going to be too high above the rim of the pot but it's not going to be below it either. All right so I've got that figure it out and you can see the little pressed whole right there. Hard to show you right now but there were roots coming out of the bottom here but they are now covered in dirt and that's how I could tell this guy was ready for transplant as well as the fact that it has over four sets of leaves. And you can see it's already sprouting some new tops right there under that first node. Pretty cool. And again this is the future mother plant for this grow series. 

So yeah I just loosen the soil around by squeezing the edges of the cup, put your hand over the top and flip it over and she will slide right out like that. Good shot of the healthy root Zone I mean there's tons going all the way around there and you guys can see. Now I'm going to just plan it straight into that hole, Bam. Now after your transplant you do want to give a plain water pH water at 6.3 for me since I'm in the fox farm ocean Forest so I'll be doing that just a second. But I would also like to mention I'm going to be the turning on the veg switch here of the grow light, so right now it's just been the seedling switch for what I'm going to do is raise this up to about three feet from the top of my now vegging plant. And I'm going to keep the seedlings switch on at 100% And I'm going to turn this dial on the veg dial to about 40% to get that started.

All right guys here we are with the finished lemoncello Hayes transplantation. You can see it's got about five sets of families now that the set came in real fast last night. Temperatures are we going to say the same around 75 degrees Fahrenheit you didn't want to keep it in the rain just like 72 to 78 right now and then humidity is going to be about 60 to 65%. Got the fan pointed kind of towards the seedling, if I have it blowing it directly towards the seedling it will kind of flip it out have the leaves blowing shaking to vigorously which is not good and will cause too much damage so I've got it so they are just fluttering and lightly dancing as you don't want them standing still. And what else oh yeah so I raise the light up as I couldn't get it to 24 in its about 21 inches from the top of the seedling.

Now what I'm going to do is turn on that veg dial so I've got the Seedling one on at 100% so you leave that on and then I'm going to turn this one on so it's on at about 35% for now since it's a little closer than 2 feet. Make sure it is directly above the plant and that is pretty much it. Still going to be misting the plant each day. like 3 throughout the day and then I'm going to give it that first watering now. So it's a plane pH watering at 6.3. Since you just transplanted you want to be very careful with the watering as you don't want to be disrupting the roots and moving the soil around so I recommend pouring from a smaller bottle like this one right here. You just want to get the soil kind of damp as you don't need to soak it or get run off. And what this will do is help the roots expand out into the new soil that it is now in. If there is no water out there then it will just stay to the center where the moisture is but getting this around it will help a lot.

 All right folks that concludes the introduction as well as seedling phase for my cloning and mother plant grow serious. I will be back shortly 4 week one of veg where I will start training this plant so that it grows bushy and properly so that it becomes a good mother plant.
