NukeHeads Update: Week 4 of Flower

Significant Bud Growth has Started!


 
 

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to the most lit cannabis growing Channel! Now today kicks off week 11 of that NukeHeads grow series. And this is officially the 4th week of flower so we are right in the heart of the flowering phase, and these buds are just developing tremendously well thus far and I am really excited because they are just going to continue doing so with these Electric Sky LEDs. So I am just going to continue giving you guys the watering schedule throughout the week and showing you guys the updates on the buds and updates on their buds and the development as well as how to take care of them and make sure they have optimal growth

. So now that you guys know what we are doing in this week's video I just want to give you a quick reminder about our one-on-one grow guidance. And that is a perfect solution for you if you are looking for a little extra help to go along with these grow videos. Again this service offers you one-on-one help for myself personally over the phone each day. And gets you unlimited access to my help, so now that we got that out of the way let's get started with a day one of the week for this week 4 of flower!

Here we are back out in the garage for day 1 of the week and man the smell is absolutely billowing out of the tent now that I just turned off that carbon filter for the shoot. So you guys can see the buds are not only getting really big. But they are filling out up and down those main branches for a good distance. So that is going to be nice because not only will those buds be nice and fat up top, but they are going to connect and fill out going a good length of the branch. So that is what we want and really in part due to the great penetration of light that I'm getting with these electric Skies by the green Sunshine Company. 

So let me just give you guys, there's no water needed today for the plants, so I'm just going to be giving you guys so much close-ups on these beautiful buds and some things I would like to point out. First of all no Burns or any issues with the leaves. Perfect leaves, perfectly healthy leaves that is and no deficiencies or toxicities like I'm saying you can see they are nice and in that healthy green color. Now same thing with the pistols here, let me give you guys some close-ups. Now you can stress out the pistils growing on the buds so it is important to be very careful because if the lights get too close or it gets too hot, you will see they will start curling and Browning or burning up. 

And you know at the end they are going to turn a different color and curl in, but if it starts happening this early on in flower than is not because of maturity of the buds. It is because you are stressing them out. But as you can see what these guys is just a couple inches from  those lights. They are an Optimal Health and shape, even the guy that grew into the light is standing perfectly up. Even those pistols grew back up once I raise the light a little higher. So that is really it for today's update on the buds, you can see not only are they everywhere but they are filling out beautifully. Couldn't be more stoked coming again hopefully I will be pulling a little over a pound from these six plants total. So that is it for today's update and I will be back for a date you in 24 hours. Alright peace guys!!

What up GreenBox Growers, we are back here another 24 hours later for day 2 of the week and you can see the buds are continuing to mature really well, fattening up in all areas. And now really starting to grow down towards each other to connect at those different Bud sites. So this guy is stretching up again towards that light so I may have to raise the light a little further, we will see. We don't want it to get too close and touch it again, but right now they're still probably about I would say to half an inch and distance between the top of the buds pistols and that light. 

So you can see all of the side colas on all of the branches or all of the plants are filling out just as well as the main colors are. And let me just give you guys some nice looks at those buds up close. You can see how nice and happy the pistols are looking, they're just getting bigger and bigger each day. So today the plants were ready for their watering, I already did it but it was that third nutrient feeding of the flowering phase.  So here on the dirty dozen schedule you will see I did week 7 which is the third week of flower mix. And I just followed that at full strength and then added one teaspoon of Cal Mag here per gallon of water.

 So I gave each plant a little over a gallon again, and Also that fox farm mix so that was for the front row because of those are the fox farm plants. And then in the back row, what I did was the plutonium Bloom mix which you can see right here. And that was about a scoop and a half per gallon and then I also did one teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water with that. So same thing plants got a little over a gallon per plant back there of that mix. As those are the NukeHeads plants back there.

And then again in the front or the Fox Farms. So again you can see there is definitely some significant differences between the plants right now, especially compared to when you are comparing the two Grape Apes. so the Grape Ape in the front her buds are a little smaller which is the fox farm plant. When compared to the one in the back so right now I would definitely say NukeHeads are winning in terms of size of the bud grow that they are giving these plants.

But one thing to also consider is the nutrients and what sources were used to make them. So one plus about foxfarm is that they are all natural and organic materials that they used to make their nutrients. Now with the NukeHeads it doesn't say what ingredients are in there or where they get their ingredients so it is hard to tell if it is all organic or all-natural or if what they're putting in there is good to be adding to these plants. Now it is working in terms of getting some big bud growth growth,  but again always want to be safe and use healthy non toxic ingredients and additives for your plants. So that is it for today's update and again did that week 3 of flower nutrient feeding today and I will be back here in 24 hours for your next update. And again that will be day 3 of the week. All right peace guys!

Alright Growers we are back here for day 3 of the week and you can see all of these main branches and colas, that you can see they are forming nicely  all the way up and down and you can see how they are starting to connect. Especially with these big guys in the back, and I mean all of these branches are developing really nicely, so very stoked on that. Let me give you guys some good close-ups so you can see how they are looking. Plants aren't ready for a watering today I just wanted them yesterday anyway so that would make sense. And then I actually did a little defoliate today on the plants so I probably took a handful of leaves from each plant just to trim up some leaves that were laying on top of Bud sites or were covering up some light to those Bud sites.

So anyways, just remember that is always an ongoing thing from here on out just a little bit at a time. And you will see eventually towards the end of flower there will probably be no fan leaves left  or if so just a very few bit we left mainly just going to be sugar leaves that you will see poking out of those buds. So really going to get those buds to thicken up and fatten up really nicely doing that, just to help really increase those yields. So you can see looking really good, these big buds up top here and really all of those side colas that they have going are just looking fabulous as well.

 So just let me give you guys some more close-ups but yeah that is really it, just maintaining a good temperature and humidity level in here. It's been around 74 to 75° during the day, and then at night I'm trying to keep it around 68 to 69 degrees Fahrenheit. Humidity has been right around 55% which is ideal, and you can go a little above or below that but really for flower you want to keep it around 55 just because added moisture will cause those buds  to possibly get mold growing on them. And then too dry will cause them to not really fatten up very well. So that is pretty much it for today's update, and I will be back here in 24 hours for the next day of the week.

What up Growers, we are back here for a day for the week and just continuing to get fat dense Bud growth every day. So you can see everyone is really starting to fatten up now it's not just those main colors. And you can see they are just connecting really nicely all the way from the tops down. So you can see the outline of the bud shape there, it's not finished or even really close. We've got a long ways to go in terms of development but you can kind of start to get the idea of how these buds are going to shape up and now they are really going to start fattening up with trichomes and Bud Over the next couple of weeks here.

 So this right here is the front Skittles plant getting the Fox Farm nutrients, and then in the back here is that Skittles NukeHeads plant, which although it did get kind of covered up by some of the plants so it stayed short. You can see the bud growth is going really well and that guy should give us a couple ounces at least. So pumped about that, you can see the two big main colas in the back are doing really well. Still not growing into the light since I raised it a couple days ago, and this guy has definitely stop growing in terms of vegetative growth and height. Another thing I wanted to show you guys as the trichomes, they're starting to develop on the fan leaves as well as will become the sugar leaves.

 So you can see, let me see if I can get a good shot, you can see how it looks almost Frosty on the leaves, and that is just trichomes, pure trichomes Growing on them.  And  so that is just a good sign of healthy and happy buds and a sign of what is to come, so hopefully they fill out the buds that far onto the leaves. Which would give us some massive dank buds. So here is some more good shots of the developing colas, as well as the trichomes and the frost that is just developing nicely on the leaves. 

And one thing that is really cool with really good sugar leaves which it looks like we will be getting a lot of good trim from these buds.  As like I just showed you, the trichomes are already filling out on to those fan leaves. But, what is great about that is you can use them and process them after the whole harvesting and trimming., and you can extract them or even just process them into butter and other extracts for dabs, oils, concentrates, really whatever, Edibles. So yeah, really good to keep your sugar leaves, I cover this in the trimming and harvesting videos of course. But just wanted to bring that up since it looks like we are going to get some really nice Sugar Leaf and trim from this grow.

 So no need to water the ladies today as you can see  soil is still visibly wet and moist, and let me give you guys a little bit of A zoomed-out shot just so you can see, I mean you can really tell those buds are taking over and it really doesn't look like foliage anymore just solid nugs. So that's just wanted to keep fattening up, and again still taking leaves here and there just one by one. So we are  still here on the same day and I'd actually just finished up some defoliation on the plants. So I wanted to give you guys a look because  I pulled some of the plants or one of the plants out of the tent, and I just wanted to see or show you guys how big these buds really are getting. So it is easier to see now that it is out of the tent, you can just see that they are really going to start thickening up nicely there.

 So let me also show you guys inside the tent since this face here is open, give you guys a little bit of a better look at the back plants here. This is that Skittles here in the back that kind of got towered over by the other Grape Ape. And while the main tops that are really exposed to the light or doing really well, you can see it is pretty underdeveloped on those other tops which is pretty normal just when you know that it is not getting enough light. So just did a lot of training or sorry a lot of defoliation.  So that should help a lot with that and then of course we've got the big Grape Ape in the back and let me give you guys some good shots and how big and frosty does buds are getting all ready since we are back here.

There's the side colas and then there's that big main guy getting nice and thick. And hopefully it's going to start connecting, it looks like pretty quickly here from top to bottom. You can see the first couple inches already did that so just working our way down. So yeah I just wanted to give you guys that quick look inside the tent just so you can have a different view of how things are going in there, and then also since I pulled this plant out just wanted to show you guys what that look like. All right I will be back now in 24 hours for the next day of the week. Alright Peace guys!

 We are back here 24 hours later for day 5 of the week and just continuing with some really nice Bud growth on all six of the NukeHeads plants here. Seeing really good development out of both the fox farm line up here in the front as well as the NukeHeads in the back there. But I got to say the NukeHeads is definitely winning this one so far. Both with the vegetative growth and the bud growth, and you can see just how big these guys are in the back especially when compared to their counterparts in the front.

 Still getting really good yields and results from the fox farm lineup you can see the buds are fattening up all over the place and looking really nice. The smell is tremendous as well like I said, the second I turn off that carbon filter it is just billowing out of the tent.  Again the front row is the fox farm plants and the back row is the NukeHeads lineup. Now again the only Strife I have with the NukeHeads lineup is it is not really natural sources of ingredients for the nutrients. First of all they don't really tell you what is in them, but my guess is it is not a natural source as it is a blue Powder that you are using. 

So that is the only drawback when compared to the fox farm, and again we still have you know four to five more weeks to go here for flowering. So we will see how they all turn out and we will give another comparison at the end there. So the plants were ready for their next watering today and that was their first plane pH watering since last nutrient feeding. They all got about a gallon and a half each per plant. And that is really it for today's update, still doing a little bit of defoliation each day here and there. And that is really it, so I will be back here in 24 hours for the next day of the week. All right peace guys!

It is now day 6 here in the grow room and I would say we are definitely past the early flowering phase and are now on to the mid-to-late part of the bloom phase. As you can see the buds have pretty much formed at all of the tops, will they have formed and now what they are doing is just fattening up and finishing their Bud production. So you will see the length of the colas has pretty much been to find at this point and now they are just going to continue fattening up and connecting to each other. So not too much to be doing with the plants other than monitoring temperature and humidity and making sure that that is always constant and on point. And let me give you guys some good shots and close ups on these buds.

 Now they are getting extremely Frosty you can see up close here on the leaves and even on the fan leaves, not just the sugar leaves. They are getting covered with trichomes just being close to those buds. And you can see him in just an all of them they are really starting to fatten up and connect all the way up and down there, and you can see like with this big guy right here. And all of its side colas are doing really well, and then of course with the Pineapple Chunk in the back left here, that is doing amazingly. So that's just one massive Cola right there, and it's just going to continue to fatten and thick in all the way up and down that branch.

You can see these guys are doing really well, and another thing when she obviously can't tell him the video, but the smell is so sweet right now and very potent. And like I said, the second I turn that carbon filter off it is just extremely potent and strong smelling in here. So just let me try and get this camera to focus on that nug right there. Not sure why it is giving me a hassle, let's see we can do it. 

There is a pretty good shot, you can see the trichomes developing there on the leaves coming all the way out to the tips of those leaves which is really nice. And you can see that growth is going all the way up and down the plants. So just am really nice overviews of these nugs and koalas as they fill out and you can really get a good sense of how big they are when I step back a little bit.  And just give you guys this kind of view right here. That is pretty much it again day 6 of the week, and I will be back here in another 24 hours for the last day of the week.  Alright peace guys!

 Alright Growers, we are back here for the last day of the week and these ladies were actually ready for a water and today which I already gave them. But that was their second plane pH watering since the last nutrient feeding, and it has been really hot lately so they were a little extra thirsty so I gave them about a gallon and a half per plant maybe a little bit less. But it's pretty close to that, now let me to show you guys the development of the buds as it is really changing honestly from a day-to-day basis. There is a tremendous difference I have to say and these guys from day to day. So let me get this camera to zoom or Focus I mean, sorry. So there we go, let's just get up on that bud because she is beautiful.

 Look at that, so as you can see they're getting really Frosty all the way up and down and it is just filling out tremendously from the top of that main Cola all the way down. So there is a better zoomed out look for you guys, and you can see this is just one main Cola out of a few dozen and here probably, probably like 30 to be honest. So you can see everything is doing really well we got some that are leaning a little bit just as they are getting heavier, so I may have to support them with some string but that is nothing to worry about.  

They were leaning a little extra today and still kind of our because they are a little under watered. Like I said they dried out pretty quickly here because of the hot weather so they should be standing fully backup and probably a couple hours time.  But you can see the upper parts here, really filling out nicely, these Main cola's and the trichomes are just filling up all over those sugar leaves and even reaching out onto some of those bigger fan leaves. So that is really it for today's update on the buds and again this is day 7 of week 11. So I hope you enjoy this look and update on the buds. Alright peace guys!

Alright growers, that concludes Week 11 of the NukeHeads grow series. Definitely seeing some good differences between that foxfarm dirty dozen nutrient line up when compared to the flower power package by NukeHeads.  And while there are some differences I would say that both nutrient lineups are growing the plants very well, and developing some really top-notch buds. So that is it for this week's video and I will be back shortly with week 12 of the NukeHeads Grow series. And as always thank you guys for watching two days of video, I hope you enjoyed, and until next time…
 

Happy Growing!!!

Week 1 of Flower for the NukeHeads Grow Series

Flower has Officially Begun! (Week 8 Overall)


 
 

All right GreenBox Growers, we are officially back here for week 8 of the NukeHeads grow series which means it is day 1 of flower now. So very exciting time for this grow series and I will be going over that watering schedule as well as the changes on how you should be handling your plants now that we are in flour. And that will all be covered throughout this week's video. So before I get started I want to remind you guys as always to check out our patreon page via this link where you can sign up for one-on-one grow Guidance with myself, and there I will be helping you over the phone each day via text or phone call. 

Just kind of guiding you along with your plants showing you what to do to get the same kind of results that I'm getting here in these videos. Also feel free to check out our MERCH on the GreenBox Grown website under the Merch & Smoke section. And how do you guys know what we are doing in this week's video, let's get started with day 1 of the week!

Aright, we are out here in the garage for day one of the week as well as day 1 of flower, and you can see yesterday was that last defoliation I did on the plants and you can see all of the different tops are standing back up in her kind of spread out finding their own little area of light For them to grow in. So you can see before the Grape Ape back here in the middle it was kind of towering over the Skittles in the back right, and so I trimmed that up and it's got a lot more light making it down there so hopefully those buds are getting enough to get nice and large. And then I was also showing you guys I had the second light on but I have them kind of pointing outwards instead of straight down just so all areas of the tent can get plenty of light.

 So now that we are in flower, no more missed and you do not want to do that any further and you are going to want to make sure that no light leaks and during the dark period as that is really important.  I'm going to be watering them today and it is their second plane pH water that I will be doing, probably about a gallon and a half per plant at this point. You still want to be getting a lot of good run off and it is going to be exciting to see how these guys start to develop in the next few days here especially since we did that strong to foliation on them. 

You will see there were some branches that before the deflation they were stuck below the canopy and so they weren't getting enough light to really stand up completely or make their way up words. So they were kind of growing sideways. So we will see if these guys will stand back up during this process now that they have more light reaching them. They should, it should just take a couple more days. But we will keep an eye on that, so that is it for day 1 of flower as well as day 1 of the week, I'm going to do that watering now of the plane pH water. And then I will be back here in 24 hours for day 2 of the week, alright peace guys!

All right growers so we are back for day 2 of week 8 which means it is also officially Day to a flower. So wanted to show you guys the plants are looking really good since that last defoliation. You can see that all of the branches and tops are standing up nice and straight and the leaves have flattened out. They are not really curled like before when they were looking a little distressed from the deflation, so that is all normal and it usually takes a day or two for them to straighten back out which you can see they have done here. 

Now another cool thing is I showed you some of those branches that were covered up by the canopy they had kind of bent over and folded over a little bit because they were not getting enough light, but now they are standing right back up Facing towards the light.  So you can see this main top right here was actually facing towards the ground kind of folded and flopped over about a day and a half ago when I first defoliated them. And there were a couple over here as well but I think they are standing back up. You can see there's one down below there still pretty low Under The Canopy but it is getting enough because I send them out enough. 

A little bushy over here I may have to take a couple more fan leaves just because of that but other than that everything is looking good. Remember you don't want leaves laying on top of each other from different branches, you want them to have enough space so they aren't doing that. And it is going to be very exciting to see this main cola form, because you can see it is just about a foot away from the light. Now these plants have started forming their pistols they are kind of their very first pistils. Let me see if I can give you guys a good shot on that. it is just right, just kind of right at the nodes you can see.

A couple little white hair starting to form and little pistils coming off the side. You can tell to because at the tops, the leaves kind of stopped getting larger and they yellow a little bit right before those big pistol start to form at the center. So that is it for today's update, I'll be back in another 24 hours for day 3, And just remember no more misting of the plants and 12 hours on 12 hours off. You want to make sure it doesn't get too hot in here especially during this time. In fact for temperature you're actually going to want it to be a little lower.

 So like at a range of that night you wanted to be in the high 60s like 68 to 69. And then during the day about 72 73 with the humidity right around 55%. A little higher is okay but you don't really want to be in the 60% range any longer. So I will see you guys back here shortly for the next day of the week.

What up GreenBox Growers we are back here now for day 3 of the week and you can see the ladies are doing really well. This Grape Ape here in the back row with the NukeHeads  row of course you can see it's really dominating the whole tent. You can see it's about 4 in taller than this Pineapple Chunk right next to it. And then the rest of the tent it is probably a good 6 inch taller than the rest of the plants. You can see just how healthy and vibrant her vegetative growth is. And now she is starting to flower, they are all giving off a really strong smell already. 

So I definitely have that carbon filter running at all times, now they were ready for a watering today which I already did and that was their third plane pH watering since their last nutrient feeding. And that next watering is going to be there first mix of flowering nutrients. So that will be exciting because that is going to give them a little boost and turns of Bud growth. So that is really it for today, I gave each plant about a gallon and a quarter and in between that in a gallon and a half and that they were getting a decent amount of runoff from that amount. 

So that works really well, now I will be back here in 24 hours for day for the weekend in the meantime just make sure the climate inside your tent stays accurate and on point as that is really important now that we are in the flowering stage. Alright peace guys!

 What up Growers we are back here for day 4 of the week and the plants are just doing amazingly. I kind of adjusted the position of some of them because as you can see this back right Skittles plant was getting pretty overcrowded and pretty overshadowed by the grape ape.  Now that I have spread the plants out a little further you can see though her branches are doing much better standing right up, and it looks like they are even getting taller. 

So that should help a lot and of course the Grape Ape is just going crazy as always, that back one there. And all of the rest of the plants are looking really good you can see they are starting to solidify those branches opposed to Growing them up words and that is just going to help so they can hold that weight of those buds as they form. So no need for watering today, just going to get a give you guys a good look at how the foliage is doing and everything is looking nice and healthy. 

Now I might still be removing some fan leaves as we go through out the flowering face, like you can see that big guy right there is kind of taking up and blocking a lot of light so taking those out will help for sure. Now you can see the pistols are starting to develop a little further each day, so let me see if I can give you guys a good shot here. So you can see a couple white pistils for me and a few of the green ones, and I'm going to say by the end of this week we will have a nice noticeable amount going. So that is really it for today's update and I will be back in another 24 hours for the next day of the week, all right peace guys!

What up GreenBox Growers, we are back here another 24 hours later for day 5 of the week. And again this is still that first week of flower for these NukeHeads plants. Everyone is doing really well and I want to show you guys that they are still going to be times you are going to defoliate further with your plants. It is not just a one-and-done type of situation, so like throughout each day I'm kind of looking through seeing are there any leaves laying on top of each other like over here. 

Or where they look like they are colliding and growing into each other. And what I will do is just remove some of those leaves to open up some light and space for those branches. So it is just the fan leaves that I am removing, so you can see like this it is a leaf that has a stem going all the way to the main stock. It isn't like this growth up top here where it is kind of like a bud site would be, it is just as fan leaves. So always keep an eye out for that, you can take them out one by one now that we did that mean deflation. 

I just checked the soil and they are not yet ready for a watering but they sure will be by tomorrow, and that will be that first nutrient mix of the flower nutrients, so get excited for that. But other than that I am really stoked on how the plants are doing. You can see all of that foliage is just really healthy and thriving. 

And not a whole lot of Bud development going on, but that is alright because we are still sort of in that transitional phase. Here is a good little close up for that Grape Ape, you can see that big stock in the back. But I am seeing that all of the plants are definitely female, you can see this one right here she is growing some callux already with some nice try comes up going on them already right at the base there so just keeping an eye on all of those to make sure that nothing Hermes.

 But that really only happens if you stress them out so nothing to worry about, but again foliage is looking really good no more misting now that we are in flower, and just to remove those fan leaves as needed just to open up some space for light to get through and to make it to the plants aren't over crowded. Now that is really it for today's update, but of course I will be back here in 24 hours for day 6 of the week. Alright peace guys!

What up what up Growers, we are back here 24 hours later for day 6 of the week and today they are ready for their next watering which is going to be there first nutrient mix of flower nutrients. But before I show you guys what I'm going to be mixing up let me just give you guys some nice close-ups on how the plants are doing. So you can see some of the leaves were some of the fan leaves are a little droopy in that is just because they really dried out and are ready for that watering. They are very thirsty and it has been really hot the last couple of days here in Northern California so they dried out a little faster today than I expected. 

And you can see also that is why the leaves have kind of taco dip towards the top of the plants. Just because it has been pretty hot out. But other than that the plants are looking really healthy, the smell is getting stronger by the day, and you can't see too much development going on at the woods just yet. Some more than others you'll see, there are some pistol starting to form. But nothing crazy so hopefully just a few more days and then that transitional period will be over.

And hopefully this flower nutes or this Bloom dose of nutrients will help get that flowering phase kicked off a little better. Not saying there's anything wrong at usually does take about a week or a week and a half for that transitional phase to kick in and get them going into that flower development. So just going to keep my eye open for that and make sure everything is healthy, besides that we do not see any toxicities or deficiencies, no light burn or stresses going on so that is good because the plants are obviously in Tip-Top shape.

 Which is important when you are going into flower now obviously you always want to have your plants in Tip-Top shape, but it is most important and even more important during flower to do that. Because if you do stress during flower it will affect your bud quality, now in veg you do not want to stress them out you want to avoid that obviously. But if you do stress the plants out in your vag, what is good is you can have some time to recover and get away from that stress so it does not affect the development, but like I said once they are budding you can't give them time to recover because the flowering has already begun. 

So now let's check out what I'll be doing for my week 1 of flowers nutrient mix. Now course the back row is going to be getting the fox farm Dirty Dozen mix. And that is just going to be Week 1 of flower which is actually week 5 on the chart. So I will be doing that makes at full strength right here week 5, and then I will be doing a teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water. For the front row here, I'm sorry for the back row that’s getting, so the front row is getting the fox farm, and the back row is getting the NukeHeads. so now all I will be doing is switching over to the plutonium Bloom bottle. The last one I was using was the uranium veg.

 So now we are doing the plutonium bloom. and it is just one scoop of this per gallon of water, and I will also be adding as well a teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water for this mix. So each plans probably going to get about a gallon and a quarter to a gallon and 1/8 of water or of this nutrient mix. You just want to get about 20 to 25% run off at this point now that we are in flour. I'm going to mix that up and give this to them now and then that will be it for today’s update. Also you can see the lollipopping and defoliation is holding up really well down here below the canopy which is good.

 Going to keep all of that energy focused up top on those Main cola's and Bud development. Alright guys really quickly before I go I just wanted to give you guys a quick shot of the canopy from the same level or a little lower so you can see just how big it has gotten. It's got about 2 feet of depth to it, Which is good because the light is penetrating through all of that but you can see just how nice and spread out all those different tops are and it gives you a little bit of a better idea on how does buds are going to start forming.

 So just wanted to give you guys a nice little shot and then there is that massive Grape Ape in the back there that is the new kids of course. And they are just tearing up and I mean they are already about a foot away from the light, there's tallest tops but we will see that it's probably going to be the biggest Cola in the tent. going to be very exciting to see how that turns out. So I will be back here in 24 hours per day 7 of the week and until then... Happy growing!!!

We are now here for the last day of week 8 which means it is also the last day of the first week of flower. So the plants are looking really good and we are definitely starting to get some good development of pistols at the bud sites. Let me give you guys a good little close up on that and see if the camera will focus, you will also notice that the bud sites are starting to Yellow, not really yellow just lighten and color and that's also a sign that they are starting to Bud. And they are preparing for forming of those buds so yesterday I gave them their first dose of Bloom nutrients and you can see they really look like they blew up a lot. 

Especially the back to plants they're on the left, you'll see the Pineapple Chunk she is catching up almost to the Grape Ape here they are just a few inches different here. And they will probably slow down in height now since they are in flower now and they are getting close to those lights. So they will probably reach a maximum height around there. Maybe grow a few more inches, but you can see they really like that first dose of Bloom nutrients. And it seems to have really helped fill them out.

 I remember I really defoliated these guys twice really good, and also I have been removing leaves throughout each day just a little here and there. So pretty spectacular that they are already filling out the tent again for probably the third time here. Probably going to have to step up my defoliation game here in the next couple of weeks but we will see. 

But definitely some good vegetative and flowering growth going on right now and pretty soon it will just be flowering. So I will be back shortly for next week which is week 9 or the second week of flower where buy the end I'm hoping we'll have some really good development at the bud sites. And hopefully The early parts of those buds where we have those little kind of balls of pistils forming at the very center. You can see pistols coming off of the sides as well as forming at the top there. And once I turn that carbon filter off, the smell is pretty pungent at this point so they are pretty good in terms of water. 

We did those nutrients yesterday. And yeah so I haven't really compare the two nutrient lineups in a while here but again the front rows is the Fox Farm Dirty Dozen and the back row is the NukeHeads flower power package. I think the Skittles in the back here just got out beat by the great ape and that is why she stayed so short. She will still develop some nice buds but she is kind of getting blocked out a little bit. But overall I've got to say the back row which is the NukeHeads seems to be the best. As those two plants are monsters. Now the front row which is the dirty dozen is looking really good too. 

But they are just definitely not as big in size and height As you can see. So comparing the two there, now we do have to wait for these buds to finish developing and really start developing because it is not really about The vegetative growth in the end but really the buds and the quality of how they come out. As well as their size. So right now I would definitely say NukeHeads has won in terms of vegetative growth for the nutrients lineup. But now what we are looking at is how the buds turn out for each line up.   so I will say that NukeHeads got the first round here in terms of vegetative growth, And now we will see who wins in terms of Bud quality and size!

Alright Growers that officially concludes the 8th week of the NukeHeads grow series, which was also obviously Week 1 of flower. And I will be back shortly for that second week of flower where hopefully we will start to see a good amount of those pistols starting to form at the bud sites. As always thank you guys for watching, I hope you guys enjoyed today's video, and until next time…
 

Happy Growing!!!

Week 6 of Vegetation for the NukeHeads Grow: Lollipopping & Defoliation

2 More Weeks Till Flower


 
 

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to the most lit cannabis grow Channel! Now today kicks off week 6 of vegetation for that NukeHeads grow series. And it's going to be a very exciting one cuz I'll be adding in that second Electric Sky LED grow light. So I want to get that in there so the plants can get used to it, and also I want to get some more vegetative growth throughout the tent. You'll see there are some spaces in the corners that aren't getting enough light and then I'm thinking depending on how the plants react to the second light I'm probably going to flip the plants in another week and a half to two weeks.

 Maybe a little bit more, like I said it just depends on how they react to that second grow light. So don't forget I'm also offering my one-on-one grow guidance for $10 a month and if you want to sign up for that, just visit the link here on the screen. And what that subscription gets you is access to my help over the phone so I can show you exactly what to do with your cannabis plants, to get the best results possible. Also don't forget to check out our merch at GreenBoxGrown.com under the merch and smoke section. And now that you guys are know what we are doing in today's video, let's get started with day 1 of the week!

 Alright Growers, so here we are for day one of the week outside here in the vegetative tent, and you can see first thing I want to point out as I've added that second Electric Sky LED. So I've got both of those In there, and I will also be running the carbon filter and now that I've got that second light in there, just to help keep things cool. And also as we are getting bigger size plants, they are also starting to smell almost as if they are in flower so even though they are not flowering yet they are  giving off a pretty strong and dank smell. 

So the carbon filter will help with lowering that smell as well. So no more low-stress training for the rest of this series and like I was saying I'm probably going to be a week to another two weeks of veg before I flip them in the flower so for now all I am really doing for maintenance is missing them two times throughout the day, getting some good coverage throughout the canopy. Making sure the leaves below are getting a good missing as well. And that is pretty much it, so I will be trimming up the lower growth and underneath the canopy once it is time to flip to flower just so that we don't waste any energy down there on some of those popcorn Buds. So that is it for day 1 of week 6, and I will be back in another 24 hours for day 2 of the week.

Alright Growers, we are back here for the second day of the week and I actually decided to do the lollipopping today. So that is what I'm going to show you in today's video, first off they are ready for a watering and I already did it so that was the second plane pH watering that they were getting since that last nutrients feeding. And I was going for about 25% run off, so it was a little over a gallon per plant that I did. So first let me explain to you guys why we are going to be doing this, so you can see that there are a lot of different tops growing, and there is also down below here a lot of growth going on below the canopy.

 And what happens is a lot of tops that are coming from well below the canopy, try to stretch up to the light sometimes they don't make it, and you will find branches that are literally weaving and sneaking through out the canopy and underneath the canopy just trying to get up to that light. And so those branches never really make it up to the canopy and if they do they're usually very weak just because of how extended away from the plant they are. so what are we doing today is cutting those branches and leaves out so only the good main tops that made it up to the canopy nice and healthy are going to be left. 

And what that'll do is allow the plant to focus all of its energy on those main tops that are going to get the best lighting for Bud development. And also it's going to allow for other good tops to grow up instead of creating ones that are snaking throughout the canopy, Like I was just describing. So I'm going to be demonstrating on the Skittles Plant Right here and that's the fox farm one, so let me pull that out and give you an example of how to lollipop your plant. Okay so what we are going to be focusing on is the lower two-thirds of the branches and then of course like I was saying the tops that did not make it through the canopy. 

So with those branches, the lower 2/3 you're going to be removing the foliage and leaves. And then for the branches or the tops that you want to remove, you are going to snip them about 2in from where they meet the main trunk of the plant and the reason for that is if they get infected or there is an issue, you then have some space before they infect that mean part of the trunk. And the rest of the plant. So just a safety precaution there. Now I'm going to start back here towards the back underside of this man talk right here and the reason being is because you will see you there a lot of little tops that just didn't make it and are not going to have enough space to do so anyway.

So first off you will see I am not using my Fiskar trimmers and I am using this bigger pair of scissors. Reason being as these larger branches are going to dull the Fiskars really easily and it is just easier to do it this way. So you're not going to be chopping out it with your scissors like you would the Fiskars which would also kind of stressed out the plant and shocked it a little bit, so this was just to clean it so again you have a couple inches or an inch from the main part where the main stuck where they connect. And just clip. Now if you guys need clones either perfect clones that you can use. 

All you got to do is cut a 45 degree angle right there, you know going like so to the main stem or the stock. And then clip off most of these fan leaves that are below, leave the two laptop there and then clip off half of the fingers right off the leaf, and you are set. And then all you need is some rooting hormone and stick it into a rockwool cube and you are good to go. Now I do have a video series on how to clone so if you want to hop over and check that out feel free to do so. But these clippings hear that I will be taking are going to be perfect candidate for clones. Especially with this Healthy Growth going on.

 So I don't need any clones so I won't be doing that, but what I will be doing is removing the foliage as well, and the rest of these toss that didn't really make it. Now I can be very gentle, you don't need to stress the plan out or Jerk it around, and if you are finding dying or yellowing leaves or crispy leaves, like that right there. Feel free to pull them off. You'll see that one just came right off without me even really tugging on it, and that is just because the plant has let go of it and has no real use for them. So now I'm going to finish up lollipopping and trimming this plan and getting all of the lower 2/3 trimmed up, as well as those cops that didn't make it. And then I will be right back to show you what that looks like.

 One quick thing that I wanted to show you guys I almost missed it, is those branches that I was talking about that kind of snake through the canopy. So let me just pull some of these branches apart and you can see like here is one right here.   And you can see like here is one right here and you can see how long and skinny it is growing, and while it is getting really tall it is going to be a really weak  stem just because of how it is. So I'm just going to get rid of that one and you'll see there's a lot that they look like vines pretty much.

 They are really skinny and just kind of wrapped around all of that other growth, and here is another one. You can see it is really weak and they can't really stand up very well on their own, so I'm just going to take those out to help the plant grow a lot better.

 Alright guys so I just finished trimming up or lollipopping this first Skittles plant, and I want to show you guys the results. So you can see we really just left those Main tops and branches That are growing big and healthy, took out all the scraggly stuff. Just because it is not going to really make anything good happen in terms of Bud growth. So you will see all of the Foliage for the most part has been removed as well. So we just left everything up top on their kind of like a nice looking haircut, and reason being is because this is going to allow for more branches or more space for branches to fill out the upper part of the canopy.

And then also it's not going to be wasting any energy on that growth and foliage down below that way because you removed all of that so now it will focus all of it on top. And that is important because the stuff down below that is not going to get as much light wont really fully develop into good bud, where if you do it like this you will focus all of the growth and energy up top for those good top shelf Budz. So now we're going to trim up the rest of these plants in here and then we will be back for a shot of that so you can see what that looks like.

Alright guy said we were doing some of this lollipopping and defoliation of the lower part of the canopy and I noticed that this plant right here, if you take a look from this angle right here it is leaning over towards that side of the pot. It's not really sitting upright, so what I'm going to do is read anchor it so it is sitting back right up. Alright so first I'm going to just  tie or anchor the gardening tie around the base of this plant, you don't want it up here because you don't want to bend or stress it.

 And all you need to do is wrap it around a couple of times Loop it around like so, and then take this and your clip, pull it over until it's about in the position you want it, which is going to be about right there for me.  And then just clip it to the side of the pot. Now you might want to pull a little extra just because it's a fabric pot it is going to give a little bit. As you can see there. So let me just pull like that, and there we go. So now you can see all the tops are all pointing  upright facing right up towards the light where I'll be. They are not leaning over to one side or the other in the plant is more centered over the pot now so it's going to be more stabilized.

 That is also good because when it is leaning, that is going to put stress on the roots because it's kind of like it is pulling over to one side and of course you don't want that. So this is going to help it grow much healthier and larger buds. Are right Growers we are back here after all of the lollipopping and defoliation has been completed, and you can see we have removed all of those tops that didn't make it up to the canopy, as well as any foliage that was on the bottom 2/3 of the plant. So you can see they've got that kind of skeleton look down below and that is really good because That is going to allow for added air flow down below there.

 And it is going to make sure that no bugs or pests or any sort of molds can form down there because of that air flow. So that is good for that, and then it is also going to prevent the plants from wasting any energy on growth that is not going to add up to any good bud growth. So let me show you guys the tops of the plants also so you can see what's left, looks like we gave them a nice high and tight haircut. Left a little up on top. Yeah we basically just left The first couple sets a fan leaves from the top node and then cut everything else off. 

But you can see there is a good amount more space which is what we wanted, because now those buds will have more room to grow. And then also maybe some more solidified tops will grow through and become Big Buds as well. So going to probably give them about another week and a half to two weeks of vegetative growth. And then we will be flipping them into flour, so that is it for the lollipopping and trimming process, and I will be back in another 24 hours for the next day of the week. All right piece guys.

What up Growers we are back here another 24 hours later since I did that lollipopping and defoliation of the plants, as you can see here. So does now day 3 hero of the week now, and so far they have responded really well to that. So I took out a lot of foliage down below as well as a lot of tops and the reason for that is they had overcrowded each other and there wasn't enough space for them to grow individually strong enough so they could grow nice and big colas.

 So what I did was I removed everything that wasn't going to grow into a nice big bud, and I just kept those healthy strong tops that will grow big and have enough space to have a big bud growing on top of them. So you'll see here not as many tops like I said but a lot more space for them to grow and the ones that are left are going to have massive buds growing on them. So next week and a half that we have left a veg maybe 2 weeks, and these different tops are going to start growing up into their own little spaces.

 And they are going to fill out the tent again like they were before, it's just there won't be as much stuff going on below the canopy where there isn't as much light reaching. So you can see like before there was complete darkness reaching down below here before I did all the trimming. Because no lie was reaching through the canopy, so that's going to also help get some bigger tops growing up through there as well. And you can also see it just looks like they are the skeletons of the plant left. Because you can see all these little tops growing.

 And That is good because it is good to have these tall strong branches that are really long like that because they are going to be able to grow big long buds. And there are going to be a lot bigger yielders. And having the foliage chopped off down below there prevent it from wasting and the energy work growth down there below the canopy where the buds aren't really going to be getting much light to fully develop. Since they're getting all those little scraggly popcorn buds, you're just going to get the big main colas up top. 

That's why I left this top layer of foliage, at the top third of the plant. So nothing to do today in terms of water and, will be misting them and I am still missing about twice each day. And that is really it for today's update, should see a lot of good growth throughout the rest of this week now that these tops have some more space. All right guys that is it for todays Update but I will be back in another 24 hours for the next day of the week but until then, Happy growing!

 Alright so we are back here another 24 hours for today for the week and this is about two and a half, three days after I did that most recent of foliation, and I actually took quite a bit more the family is off. I didn't take any more tops or branches. And the reason being is what I wanted to do was open up some more light to some toss that were growing pretty strong but they were starting to get blocked up by fan leaves. So when you are doing your defoliation, one of the biggest things you are going to want to remove is the fan leaves.

 And you want to be strategic and that you remove fan leaves that are on top of other tops, or kind of blocking light that would get to certain tops that would grow nice and tall. So you can see I removed a lot of those really big fan leaves, you can see a lot of these are pretty massive. Bigger than my hand in fact, and what you will notice it's now like this Grape Ape up front here has about 10 tops that were being blocked buy those main big fan leaves up top, and now those branches are able, I bent them out using a little LST and now they are out in the sunlight or under the grow light, getting their own light. 

And now they will be able to get a lot bigger and grow up above the canopy to be a main top as well. So we are going to start to see a lot more tops filling out the canopy throughout this week and next week. Depending on how big they are by the end of next week, and may do another week of veg, but I just want to get a nice table top shape with a canopy full of tops. not really a lot of fan leaves. See I might even remove this big one right here because you can see how big of an area it takes up and then it casts a shadow and blocks everything from growing up that is below it.

And so yeah it is just really good to remove that. Now before it was a lot more dense with foliage, these plants where that is. And it looked a lot Fuller in here like we were going to get a lot of Bud, but most of that growth was fan leaves. So those like I said grow a lot of light and you want to get a lot of tops because that's where the buds are going to grow, the fan leaves aren't going to be growing those. So always good to remove those big ones just because they are blocking a lot of light. But besides that, that is really it for today's update, and I will be back in another 24 hours for your next one. And until then I will just be misting these guys throughout the day.

 What up Growers, we are back 24 hours later for day 5 of the week, and the plants were ready for their next watering so I did that just a minute ago. And that was their third plain pH water. Since their last nutrient feeding, now I actually went ahead and turned off one of the LED lights as you can see here, as now that I trimmed off all of that extra foliage, they didn't have As much and it doesn't seem like they need as much light either. Because as you can see it was getting pretty hot in here so a lot of the leaves were tacoing up and folding up, mainly the ones at the very top of the plants.

 And then there's also been some kind of drooping and yellowing, some early signs of light stress basically. So that is another reason why I turn that second light off and then I just sent her. The one that is still on over all of the plants. But you can see all of those tops they are getting some really good growth, they are getting taller and finding their own space, just seems like the leaves are not very happy right now, you're kind of folded up or twist it up. So I wanted to get that extra light off and just make sure that it wasn't too hot or too powerful in there before I did too much damage. 

So turned on that second light off, will be giving them a misting and you should still be missing throughout the day at this point. And I will be back in another 24 hours so we can check up and see how these guys react to having that light turned off. So I will see you guys then, peace!

 What up Growers We are now back here now for day 6 of the week, and this is not 24 hours later since I turned off that second LED. Out earlier today it look like it actually helped a lot, as all the leaves are standing back up perfectly there was no drooping, and the leaves, none of them were tacoed or folded up words. They are tacod or folded a little bit upwords at this point, and some are drooping. So it might be because it is later in the day and almost night time for these plants. Or just because they are still recovering a little bit from that shock Of that second light. But who knows I may have to turn that second light back on sooner than later I just want to see how they react it off. 

So that is really it for today's update, but before I go I wanted to show you guys that the plants are actually showing their sex at this point. So I want to show you guys how you can spot that. Now the best way to tell by looking under the canopy up close at the nodes. And what you are looking for is essentially white pistols kind of like what they form during the flowering stage. So they kind of look like little spikes coming out from the nodes there. 

Let me see if I can get a focused shot on them. All right so here is a little bit of A focused shot. You can kind of see those little white pistols. There is a white pistol right they're growing out of that node as you can see. But yeah that's how you tell the sex of your plants, if they are female or photoperiod Plants. If they are autoflowers you will tell a lot earlier on. But yeah that is how you can tell. So that is it for today's update and I will be back in another 24 hours, alright peace guys!

 What up what up, we are back here 24 hours later for the last day of the week, and the girls are actually looking really happy today so I think turning off that second LED is starting to pay off. They actually look like they grew a couple inches since the last video, I don't know if you guys can tell that. But the Grape Ape definitely look taller and this one in the back left, let me see. I always get confused, these are either okay yeah left side is Pineapple Chunk, right side is Skittles. 

So I mean the Pineapple Chunk right here they look like they got a lot taller too. So very happy about that decision to take the light off. I will flip the second one on during flower at some point. and that's probably going to be, flowers probably going to be after next week. So I will complete  week 7 which will be next week. And then at the  start of week 8 I will flip them into flour. Now you can see all of the growth up top is looking really good starting to stand up flat. You can see the leaves aren't all curled up as much as before, they are flattened out. And they even Look Alot perkier. The talks aren't leaning over or anything like that.

And then down below here let's check out how that lollipopping is holding up. So looks really good, I like how it looks like a skeleton down here and you can just see what is left of those branches, but those soon will have nice big buds on them. And you can see pretty much all of the ones in the back look just the same. A bunch of nice long shoots branching out from the very center. And you can see also, now that it is cleared up some space down here I like to take my misting bottle when spraying them. And I like the it upside down and spray it in here to get the undersides Of the leaves and below the canopy. And they really seem to like that as well.

 So hopefully another week of veg and then we are going into flower. Obviously no more low-stress training for the rest of this bro, we are just going to let them get taller and fill out the rest of the tent now that that lollipopping is done also. And I will be back for next week which will be week 7, very shortly here. Alright peace guys!

 Alright GreenBox Growers, so that concludes week 6 of the NukeHeads series and now that the plants have recovered from that light stress and have also come back from that lollipopping we did earlier this week. We are going to get them into flowering mode probably at the beginning of week 8. So week 7 is coming up now, and that is going to be another week of vegetation, but most likely the final week of vegetation and then we will be flipping over to flower. So get excited for that, and in the meantime thank you guys for watching this video and until next time…
 

Happy Growing!!!

Week 1 of Vegetation for the NukeHeads Grow Series

Fox Farm Dirty Dozen vs NukeHeads Flower Power Pack


 
 
 

 What Up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to the most LIT Cannabis grow Channel on YouTube! Now today we are officially kicking off Week 1 of the NukeHeads Grow Series, and again these are the photoperiod seeds that I got sent to me from nukeheads along with their nutrient lineup.  So this week I will be doing that first nutrient feeding, where I will be comparing the nukeheads nutrients along with the fox farm Dirty Dozen lineup. So I'm very excited to see how they grow differently based on those nutrients.  And for those of you who just saw the intro / seedling video you'll know that I just transplanted and moved all of these nuke heads seedlings downstairs into the garage, out in the veg tent. So they are now out there with that Limoncello Haze Mother Plant that I am growing in my other series.

Now before I get started with today's video I would like to remind you guys that if you are looking to start your first cannabis grow or have already started and are sort of struggling and would like some guidance or help, I myself and personally offering a free trial to my one-on-one grow guidance. And that will get you access to my help each day where I will help you over the phone telling you what to do with your plants and how to grow them properly so you do get those good results. Also don't forget to check out our MERCH at the GreenBox Grown website under MERCH and smoke, and now that you guys know what we are doing in today's video, let's get started day one of the week.

Alright guys we are out here in the garage for day 1 of the week, and I just transplanted these seedlings out here last night and to these 3 gallon smart pots. They are in the ocean Forest Fox Farm soil and temp is in the range of 72 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit, humidity is now 60 to 65%. I brought them in here with the Limoncello Haze mother plant. So I've got a lot of ladies in here right now and I'm excited to see how these Nuke Heads seeds really work, or their genetics really. Especially once I give them that first nutrient feeding with the nuke heads nutrients. So I'm going to wait until they all develop about another set of fan leaves before I do that first nutrient feeding, but today I'm just going to give them some misting with this plane pH water at 6.30. 

I gave them some water yesterday, plain pH water during the transplant because it is good to moisten that new soil That you are putting them in, so those roots grow out into that new space. But the soil is still a little damp so no need to water at this point. All right guy said that concludes day 1 of Week 1 for the Nuke Heads grow serious, but I will be back in 24 hours for day 2 of the week, peace! And before I go I wanted to give you guys a close up on all of the different seedlings in here, you'll see I kept them together by their strain. So I've got the two grape Apes over here and you can see they're both doing really well. This is the one that was really small to start off with and kind of weak seedling. 

But now she is doing nice and strong, and you can see they are all getting a nice thick stem at the base, which is another good sign of a strong plant to grow. So here on the right side of got the two pineapple chunks, and you can see those are doing really well also And the new setup. And then last but not least in the back left we've got the Skittles.  Which I think are looking the best and biggest so far, I am really excited for all these guys because these are three strains I've always wanted to grow and have yet to grow. But I think I am most excited for the gray babe, just cuz I haven't grown anything to purple lately. so that's it for day 1 of Week 1 for the Nuke Heads Grow Series, but I will be back in 24 hours for day 2 of the week. All right peace guys!

Alrighty folks, we are here another 24 hours later for day 2 of week 9 here for these Nuke Heads Seedlings You can see they're doing really well in their new tent here and their new home, they are growing really fast as well which is nice. Not ready for their next watering yet is there still some moisture in the soil, But tomorrow I am pretty sure they will be ready so at that point it will be there first nutrients eating where we can compare the effects from the Fox Farms and the nuke heads lineup. So I'll give you a kiss if you can see they are all starting their fourth set of fan leaves, and they are all starting to really gotten up at the stems which is great because it shows they are growing a lot of roots down below. 

And are going to have a very strong base for growing big buds up top. So pretty soon these guys will be ready for some training, some low-stress training. I don't think I will be topping them because as you can see over here, this is all from low-stress training with pulling it down and hooking it in certain ways. I didn't top this plant a single time, so that you can see I'm getting just as good of results. So I think I'm going to do that with these Nuke Heads seedlings as well because that way I'm not going to get the stress of topping But I'll still get the good results and extra tops from that low stress training.

So today I will keep it simple, just going to give these guys a misting up some plain pH water, at 6.30, and don't be shy to give them a good misting. You want to get good coverage all over the tops and bottoms of those fan leaves, and I will be back in another 24 hours for day 3 of the week and like I said, we're probably going to be doing that first nutrient feeding tomorrow. So I will see you guys then, peace!

All right guys we are back another 24 hours later for day 3 of the week, and it is officially time for that first nutrient feeding. So you can see the soil is nice and dry now. Well below an inch deep, so I'm going to be mixing up with a fox farm mix as well as a new pads nutrient mix. Because I'm doing that comparative grow here. Now I'm mixed up already the fox farm mix and that is going to be the seedlings mix here where the cuttings and seedlings mix here. On the Fox Farm schedule, so you can see that's 6 teaspoons of the Big Bloom and then one teaspoon of boomerang. Now I'm going to do this at a quarter strength since it is the first nutrient feeding. So here I've got mixed up a quarter strength of that, plus a quarter of a teaspoon of Cal Mag per gallon of water.

So that is going to be the fox farm watering and it is pH at 6.30 since we are in the ocean forest and after I water them with that, I will give them a misting water with this bottle here with the 6.3 water. So now for the nuke heads nutrients this recommends during veg one scoop per gallon of water, but again since this is their first nutrients feeding I'm going to do it at a quarter of the recommended dose. So I will be doing one quarter of a scoop of this new cats mix per gallon of water, and then I will also be adding in that quarter teaspoon per gallon of water of that Cal Mag. As I still want to add that in.

Alright so I've got the mix of the fox farm right here so it's do that one first. And then I will mix up the new cousin nutrient mix and then we will go with that one. It's the first one we got to do is pick out which ones are the foxfarm nutrient plant so that's going to be this one right here for the Grape Ape. Then we've got that one in the back for the Skittles, and in that back right Pineapple Chunk is the other one. So since this is the first nutrient watering you don't want to go crazy but you do want to get that soil wet all the way towards the edge of the pot. You don't want to just be watering the middle of the pot, otherwise if you leave the outside soil dry towards the end of the pot, that's not going to help with the roots growing out words. And it's going to cause them to not grow very well and too kind of just stick to the soil that is moist.

So don't really need to get much runoff but you do want to But you do want to make sure you soak all of the top soil like I keep saying all the way to the edge of the pot, and that should be enough right there for that plant. So now I will do the Skittles plant back here in the middle. And again the Skittles look to be doing the best out of all of the plants. Or they just seem to be growing the fastest as far as they all look really healthy at the moment, they're all doing really well it's just that the Skittles seem to be taller. You'll notice all of the leaves are very short. Or the fingers on all the fan leaves Are kind of short and fat and that's a good sign that there are some good and it cut genetics. If they were sativa or more on the sativa side they would be longer skinnier fingers on the fan leaves, So that is just kind of how you tell the difference.

So that is good right there for the Skittlez plant, and now last but not least that Pineapple Chunk here in the back right corner, so let me just move this a little bit so you guys can see. And again they are all doing really well in here with their Limoncello Haze mother plant  in the corner there. Now they have some goals to work towards to try and catch up to this mother plant up in the corner. It'll give them something to Aspire towards being for their future. All right so there we go with the Fox Farm nutrients feeding so now what I'm going to do is mix up the nuke heads nutrient, and that is the nuke heads uranium for veg. And then I will also add some of that Cal Mag.

Now real quick, I don't talk too much or too frequently about the NPK ratios here on the nutrients but since we are doing this new kids mix, I wanted to show you guys. So first of all you will see on your nutrient bottles or packages, these three numbers they are usually on the front towards the bottom of the label. And that's the NPK Ratio or nitrogen, phosphorus and then of course potassium. Now in the vegetative stage nitrogen is the most important macro or essential nutrients so you'll see and most vegetation specific nutrients that first number is going to be really high. With the others being lower, now all three seem to be pretty high for this one. But you will notice that the nitrogen is the highest. All right guy so now I will go mix that up for the Nuke Heads Plants and I will be right back for that watering.

Alright guys I'm back with that nuke heads nutrient mix, and you can see I've got a gallon mixed up here just over a gallon, with a 1/4 scoop of the nukeheads veg uranium mix, and then a quarter teaspoon of the Cal Mag.  So Mixed that up and pHed it to 6.3, and I wanted to kind of show you guys what this looks like it's kind of cool the nutrients. It's like this blue powdery substance. But I see why they call it uranium it is like a electric blue. no smell it is odorless, so I'm excited to see how it does, so I'm going to finish feeding these last three plants with that Nuke Heads mix. 

Alright so I will start with the Skittles in the back right corner here with that. Let me get my jug here, alright move into the tent a little more. So you will see same thing, starting in the Middle with the water being very gentle, and then slowly working out towards the edge. So that it all kind of sucks in evenly.  Just like that! You don't want to move soil around or anything, that's why it's important to be gentle as you can disturb the roots if you do that. And that is just about enough right there for this feeding, so there's the Skittles nuke heads nutrients feeding. And now I will do the Grape Ape nuke heads feeding. You can see what soil is pretty dry and you can tell it is by the way the waters kind of sitting on top of it for a second at first before it really soaks in. But that is okay you don't want to overwater these guys early on so that is why I waited in between the first and next watering. 

Where that first nutrient waited a good time for that first nutrient watering. So that is enough for the grape head and now we will finish off by doing the Pineapple Chunk here in the front right. And I mixed about a gallon, just over a gallon of water and that seems to be the perfect amount for three of these plants into 3 gallon smart pots. So just over a gallon so that it is divided by three plants seems to be doing really well at this stage and again I'm in those 3 gallon fabric smart pots. You can grow a pretty good size and a 3 gallon smart pot as well because remember with a smart pot, those can grow a plant about twice as large as the same size plastic pot.  So a 3 gallon smart pot is essentially the equivalent of a 6 gallon plastic pot. And again I'm not really sure what the ratio is for the air Roots but I'm sure the air is pot is even bigger when compared to plastic. 

So instead of being twice I wouldn't be surprised if it was three times the amount When comparing air roots to plastic pots. Alright folks so there are the two nutrient feedings comparing that fox farm nutrient feeding by The Dirty Dozen to the nuke heads vegetative uranium feeding. So now that everyone has their nutrients I'm going to give them all a plane pH misting and that will be it for today's video. Now I will be back in another 24 hours. Next update and we will see some good growth from the nutrients in that video, and I will be able to tell you guys or see if there are any differences between the plants that got fed the different nutrients.

 Alright guys this is now day 4 of week one For the Nuke Heads Grow, And you can see this is 24 hours later from that first nutrient feeding that we did. And you can see they are all looking extremely healthy right now and they have a decent amount of growth since then. There isn't really much difference just yet in the plants, so we can't tell really which nutrient lineup is working better or if there really are any variations or differences in the growth you are going to get from them. Anyways let's just do a close up on the different pairs of genetics so you we can see if there are any differences. So first we will check out the pineapple chunks, this is the fox farm in the back and then the front this is the nuke heads one or the one that got the Nuke Heads nutrient. no not really seen too much a difference in terms of growth, The one in the front here I think has one more set of fan leaves, but it has been kind of further along since the start, but they are about the same size. So nothing really different there.

 We've got the Skittles here which is the fox farm and then we've got the Skittles in the back left here which is of course Nuke Heads. I would save this one here by the foxfarm is definitely bigger but I would say they are around the same height, this one just has a little more foliage going on. So not too much of a difference there, but I can definitely see a difference here with these two grape Apes.

 But again this is really where there was the biggest difference in the beginning if you remember that seedling that was kind of struggling early on. It was this guy here which was the smaller Grape Ape. But both look really healthy and a nukeheads one is way bigger, but that is just cuz it was doing better in the beginning. So it'll probably take a few more days or at least  a few more nutrient feedings before we really start to see a difference in the plant. But alright guys that's really it for today's update and I will be back in another 24 hours of course for your next clip.

What up Growers we are back another 24 hours later for day 5 of the week. And this is actually two days after that first nutrients feeding.   So still can't see the same plants that were doing well in the beginning or still continuing the lead the pack here, they are all looking really healthy. I am really stoked on how this is going this far. This is definitely some good strong genetics, and honestly can't wait until these ladies are big enough to flower because I do have a feeling these buds are also going to be really nice. You can see the middle back I hear that Skittles plant that is really dominating everyone, or getting the biggest and kind of just having the best growth thus far. This is the other Skittles in the back, and the Grape Ape in the middle front here is doing really well here also. And even that smaller Grape Ape that was kind of behind behind. She's starting to catch up and get some good veg grow its going.

 So really no complaints so far, no burn from any of the plants from those new Trans. Not seeing any deficiencies or toxicities or any over-watering or anything like that. No light stress so just keeping everything essentially the same. Just keeping these ideal conditions, and again Misting with plain pH water about 2 to 3 times throughout the day. And we can give some to this limoncello Haze plant over here as well. She can use a little misting. All right guys that concludes today's update and I will be back in another 24 hours to show you guys how these ladies have grown since then.

All right guys here we are 24 hours later for day 6 of the week! You can see these ladies are really starting to take off and get a lot of good at vegetative growth almost everyday. So there is a new set of fan leaves That was kind of poking up and growing up through the center that taught for each one of these plants. And now you'll see the leaves have grown out and have sprouted out to the sides. And they are already on to that next set. So the soil is dry and inch deep and ready for water, so today is going to be the first pH watering at 6.3. And this is the first one since that last nutrient feeding. 

Now for those of you who saw my water filtration video I was talking about TDS meters and how my local tap water comes out at around 255 to 260. And I just wanted to show you guys that. That's what it was at today when it came out of the tap and then adding some of that PH down increased it some so you can see it brought it up to about 280 or 279 ppm's and that is still good because these guys are still considered seedlings or very early badge so a range of around 350 to 500.

 I'm sorry around 300 to 400 or 300 to 500 about the range you want to be in for this stage when it comes to PPM. So I've got my water mixed up there and before I do the water and wanted to tell you guys that these guys are just about ready to start the low stress training. So on day one of the next week which I will believe is week to this grow series, that is when I will start with the low-stress training and by pulling them down and hooking them to the side of the pot. So get excited for that to come soon and now let's give them their plane pH watering!

Okay so you guys might be wondering like how much water should you be giving each of these plants at this point and what I have done as mixed up 2 gallons of water in my bucket, pH water in my bucket here and what I'm going to do is feed each plant until I have soaked all of that topsoil, and I'm just starting to get a little run off out of the bottom. And that is going to be enough for each plant. So I'm not sure exactly how much that will take for each plant, but I'm guessing it's going to be not all or probably will be pretty close to the two gallons that I have mixed up here. Maybe a little bit more, but we will see. And once I'm done with this watering of course I will give them a plain pH misting as I'm still doing that about 2 to 3 times each day

. Temperature still not same range of round 72 to 79 or 80 degrees Fahrenheit. And you want to keep humidity at about 60 to 65% at this stage. So it is lower than when they were seedlings but it is still a little bit up there. Now you can see this guy is starting to develop some tops underneath that first note, so that is good and showing she's going to have some good growth. And that is the pineapple chunk. And you can see they have all pretty much caught up to each other in terms of size, The Grape Ape over here that has been small from the beginning is still a little bit on the smaller side, But she is definitely catching up!

I would also like you guys to know that all of the fan leaves are pretty sure or have pretty short and stubby fingers, and that is again a sign that they are in to cut genetics or have strong and to cut genetics and them. So  I think the grape Apes have the strongest in terms of Indica genetics. You can see some of the other ones have skinnier fan leaves, but the Grape Ape seem to have for sure the fattest. So that is it for today's update, and I will finish watering the rest of the plants I showed you about how much to give each of these. You can see there is some run off starting to come out and I probably only watered about a quarter of agallon of water total here. So that is a quarter a gallon of water split between two plants. And again I will be starting that low stress training on these plants coming day 1 of next week. alright I'll be back in another 24 hours for your next update, peace!

Alright Growers we are back for day 7 of the week and we are exactly 24 hours later from that last pH watering. Now the plants have some good growth going since yesterday is a video clip and you can see they are all in outstanding condition. So I'm going to just be misting them today and it's going to be the last day of this video. But starting day one of week 2 for this groceries, I am going to be starting that low-stress training, so get excited for that, and it's only going to be a few more days of these guys and this tenant before I move them into here, and those guys are getting harvested in about 2 to 3 days and once that is done these nuke heads plants are going to be moving in over there. all right guys to take a quick look at them right now because Starting on day 1 of next week's video, they are going to be much larger. Alright peace guys!

Alright green box Growers that concludes the first week of vegetation for my nukeheads groceries. And I will be back shortly with week 2 of this grocery is where I will be starting the low-stress training like I mentioned earlier in this week's video. Right now I'm about 4 to 5 days away from harvesting my autoflowers, which are in the Big 4 by 4 tent, and then once I do that I will be moving the nuke heads plants into that grow tent, where they will have more space so I can train them to get bigger. And they will also be having a much stronger LED light in that tent as well.

Kicking off the NukeHeads Genetics Grow Series: Intro + Seedling Phase

Fox Farm Dirty Dozen vs NukeHeads Flower Power


 
 
 

What up GreenBox Growers and welcome back to the most LIT Cannabis grow Channel on YouTube! Now today I am really stoked because I am officially starting off my next groceries. And it's going to be an indoor photoperiod series with all Indica dominant strains! now I will be doing some low-stress training or LST on those plants to get them nice and bushy, so we can get a nice Bountiful Harvest from each plant. And I'm only going to be using strains from the nuke heads package I received recently, and I will be doing a compare-and-contrast series with their nutrients as well as The foxfarm Dirty Dozen.

 So I will be growing three different strains from this pack, 2 seeds of each strain, and then one of each of those strains will be used with the Nuke Heads nutrients, and then the other from each train will be used with the dirty dozen. So that way we can see exactly how it affects the same string using the different nutrients lineups. So like I said earlier this video is the official introduction to the groceries, and I am also going to cover the entire germination and seedling process right up to that transplant into our final pots. So instead of doing a whole bunch of videos on that entire process, it's just going to be One video since you guys already know the drill for my other series. And then once we get to the official start of the vegetation stage, that is when I will start training the plants and going on with my weekly videos from there.

 Now before I get started I would like to mention that if you guys are struggling with growing your own plants at home, or just need help learning how to grow cannabis, feel free to check out the link Down Below in the description where you can visit our patreon page and you can sign up there for one-on-one grow guidance from myself. Where I will personally help you myself over the phone with any questions you may have about growing, and just with guiding you along during the whole process from seed to harvest. Also don't forget to check out our MERCH at greenboxgrown.com under the merch and smoke section, you can also pick up some smoke gear from there as well like bongs glass pipes and rolling papers and whatever else you may be looking for. And now that you guys know what we are doing and today's video, let's get started!

Alright folks here we are in my bedroom where I'm going to start my seeds off for these germination phase, and I've got my little mini seedling tent set up which is where I will be growing these guys until they are ready for the main pot that they are going in. Which will probably be a five gallon smart pot, haven't really decided for sure yet. Alright so the first thing you should know this is I've got the nutrients in here by nukeheads here on the left is the uranium veg and then for flower they have the plutonium bloom. So I will be using those for half the seeds like I was saying, and then the other half will be the fox farm Dirty Dozen. Now I've got my genetics here by nuke Heads, and I've got five strains but I will just be growing three of them for now. 

So you'll see I've got my little mini glasses setup for soaking them during germination, or to get them into germination. So I've got on the left the Grape Ape, then the Skittles, and then on the right some pineapple chunk. Now these are all Indica dominant strains which will be good because they will all prefer similar condition so we don't have any issues with that, and now all I'm going to be doing is putting the seats into their glasses and letting them soak for the next 15 hours before I put them into the moist paper towels where they will finish the germination face.

 So first I'm going to pop in we've got the Grape Ape right here and you just want to do it for 15 hours, the soaking process and you'll see at first the seeds might sit at the top of the glass but you can try pushing them down every couple of hours as that will help. But if they don't sink to the bottom before the 15 hours is up that is not a problem, so you will see one of them sunk right to the bottom there and one of them is just resting right on top. So that is the great vape and now I'm going to do the Skittles right here and I'm doing two of each like I said. One for each nutrient line up. And I will be putting these in rockwool cubes, that seems kind of stuck in there. There we go, I will be putting these in rockwool cubes once the route has come out and is about a half inch in length. And then once those are big enough I will put them into the Solo cups for a little while, while still keeping them in the humidity down.

 And then that's once they are big enough that's when I'll work them into the final pot inside of the main tent. alright so this is the Pineapple Chunk, the final two seeds going in. And another thing I would like to mention so I've been thinking about it and what I think I'm going to start using that smaller tent as my veg tent, the two by four, and then the bigger tent will be my flowering tent, which is the four by four. And so what that means is that bloom Beast will be used for the vegetation stage and I will be putting these guys in that 10 first, while the autoflowers Finish flowering inside of the big flowering tent. Now once those are harvested in the  nukehead seeds are big enough I will move those into the flowering tent, where I will probably still grow them in bed and do some train to them over the course of that period. But I will also flower them in there. 

So I've got all of my seeds soaking in the water, and I've got different cop so I can separate them and keep track of the different strains. And I will continue trying to push them down to the bottom of the glass over the next 15 hours and they will probably see well before that though. And then I will be back for the next shot which will be putting these guys into the most paper towel to soak. All right, peace guys!

Alright Growers we are here exactly 15 hours later and the seeds are ready to go into the  paper towel for the final germination stage. So I will be keeping them in for the time being while they germinate and for the germination seedling stage. And for this part of the germination, I will have each strain on their own plate so I can keep track of the strains. I've got this heat mat turned on right here so it will keep them warm, and then I will keep them in this tank closed up with the lights off. 

Because it is important that they have complete darkness, Morning. They have complete darkness but that's why the heat mat is on because they also need that warmth to germinate. So you don't want it to dry out the paper towel and you don't want that to happen because it is really bad. So always be checking on that every couple hours or so to make sure it is moist, and just make sure it is warm and not hot. Because you don't need it hot that will actually kill the seeds and you just want it to be warm as that will help with germination and will also help speed up the process. So what I'm going to do now is just separate the plates and then pour the seeds out onto each one. Aren't all right so I'm going to start with the Grape Ape here first, let me get my plate and move it over on the heat mat. And okay so that is the Grape Ape right there, bam just like that that is all you got to do. now you want the paper towel completely soaked and once the seat is in there you want to fold the paper towel over in half, so that it is completely covered up by a paper towel.

 It is also a good idea to try and not touch the seeds with your hands if possible, as you don't want to get any of those oils that are on your hands or skin onto the seeds as that can irritate them. Now I'm just going to wet this corner a little bit. Now you don't want them sitting in a puddle of water, so what I like to do is take the plates and then tilt it like that  just to let the excess run off. I will do that in the sink for now though because I obviously don't want it all in the tent, but just to show you guys just turn it on the side and let some dribble off. If it is pouring off then let it all run off and then turn it back up and leave it just like this. I'm going to show you guys want to have all the seeds on their plates, but just to show you I'm going to have the light off and I will have this door completely closed so they have complete darkness,  because that is important.

 Alright guys so as you can see I've got all the seeds on their plates and they are separated of course by the different strains. So I've got the two Grape Apes, the two Skittles and then the two pineapple chunks. What's Gucci gang, I'm back here another day later cuz I'm actually going to show you guys how much the roots crew and just the 24 last 24 hours. And this is where that seedling heat mat comes in, really helps with speeding things up. Now here we go let's check out that Pineapple Chunk, and actually these paper towels are feeling pretty dry so I'm actually going to give them a quick moistening after this. All right so one of those routes as you can see right here is pretty much ready as you can see. It'll probably be ready by tomorrow for transplant into the rockwool cube.

So this other guy hasn't done anything just yet, hasn't cracked it looks like oh wait actually, no all right yeah so just that one of the pineapple chunk. And let's see how the other ones are doing. They all feel like they are needing a little bit more moisture so I'll be doing that right after I oh ya look at that. Both of them just about ready and again this is all just after not even a full 24 hours probably only been about 20 maybe 18, so both of these cracked Open and one is further  I had than the others, but not too much more to go. These will all probably be ready tomorrow to go in.

 Alright  GreenBox Growers, we are back here 24 hours later, and the seeds have ground tap roots that are either 1/2  inch in length or longer, so that means they are ready for transplant. So I've Got My Little Seedling tent set up here as you can see, for the seedling phase. I will be putting these guys into their rockwool cubes, you're going to need A little bowl of water PH at 5.8 for soaking rockwool cubes in. I've got my temperature and humidity gauge, my spray bottle, and then of course my humidity Dome with tray, I've got the seedling mat turned on underneath for helping with humidity. Got some of that water in the tray down below is that is important too. And I've got the light going just a little 45 watt LED, and then the fan just for circulation. That does help even though they are in the humidity Dome, I know it seems funny but just helps with circulating the air that is in the grow tent.

 So you will want to place the seeds Taproot down into the rockwool cube, and I am actually going to show you how to do that right now. So step one you are going to take your rockwool Cube, maybe it's a rapid Rooter but I'm using rockwool for this, and then you're going to soak it in that 5.8 pH water. And you're going to do that for about 10 seconds, and that is just so it can absorb and soak up that water. You are not going to squeeze it as that is really important, you don't want to damage the rockwool cube. Again, you can shake off some of the excess but you don't want to be super violent with it.

All right so, sometimes with the rockwool cubes also, the whole will be kind of closed up or not big enough, so you can use a pair of tweezers or something like that to open it up. And now I'm going to start with one of my Pineapple Chunk seeds. So got the tags ready and here you can see this is a good example of what a good healthy Tap root it is. I let that second one go a little too long as you can see, but this other one is looking really good.  So remember it is really key to be gentle and you are going to want to pick it up with your finger carefully and only touch the seed not the Taproot okay. 

So just put it right there and now you want to put a Tap Root down into that rockwool Cube that you just soaked. Be very gentle as sometimes with the longer routes you kind of have to push it down, but make sure it is in there below the surface. You don't want it poking up and then this is really important you want to close up that hole, so no light is getting in. I just passed that space together and you will see that will do the trick. There you go, so that is good Like that and then all you have to do is put it into the humidity Dome under the light. We are on 18 hours on of light and 6 hours off.  temperature you're wanting in the 75 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit and then humidity you want as high as possible so I'll probably have it in the 80% range maybe even higher.

 So I'm going to soak the rest of these rockwool cubes and then put the and then I will be right back to show you guys how that looks once I'm all done. Allright allright Growers, here we are after all of the seeds have been planted into those rockwool cubes and you can see I've got my temperature reader right here and it is at 72 degrees which is a good heat, the humidity is going to be much higher and the Heats going to be a little higher inside that Dome, but that's all right. And I've got them right under that light and you'll see I've got all six of them in there and they're all in the Rockwell key is really well. I've got them labeled by their strained and all those top holes are closed up. I will be missing the inside of the Dome and keeping these vents completely closed for now as I want the humidity to be high in there. And this will help them Sprout, so I will be back tomorrow and I'm hoping they will all be above ground by that point and so I will give you guys your next update then.

What's up Growers so here we are back a day and a half later, and about five of the six seeds have popped up above ground. There is still one of the grape Apes that hasn't done so just yet, so I'm going to show you that real quick. Let me just pull up the humidity Dome. You can't see it but the seat is just about to pop through the rock wall, so tomorrow both of these guys should be up through the rock wall, and all of these guys will probably be starting their first set of serrated fan leaves. Right now they just have those round cotyledon leaves. So, I'm going to give them a quick Misting, just make sure there's still a little bit of water in the tree below not too much, and just give them some Mist throughout the day and make sure they don't dry out. and that is really all you have to do and taking care of these seedlings!

What up Growers, we are here for the very next day and I am very excited to say that the seedlings are all ready to go into the Solo cups with some ocean forest soil. So first I will show you guys how they look today and some of them have kind of stretched a little bit. As you can see there, the Skittles got kind of tall, the Pineapple Chunk just medium height and then the grape ape are still pretty short. But they are all developing that first set of serrated leaves. I am going to do an example of planting into the Solo Cup for you guys and I will use one of the ones that you stretched really tall.

Cuz I got a little trick for you guys to show you how you can basically Bury that stem to show them that up and to allow it to strengthen and not lean so much. So that will allow it to grow faster because it won't be leaning and trying to strengthen its stem, and then it can focus on the vegetative growth. So first things first I've got my Solo Cup, and you will see here you want to cut holes in the bottom and slices around the Lower Side there like that. It's very important to have that drainage or else you're going to have water stuck at the bottom and your plants will essentially drown and die. So with most of them you want to put enough oil in so when it is set in it is just set under the brim with the Solo Cup so you can cover it with dirt and it's not buried below. With this one with the stretched stem, I'm going to leave out more soil so there is more room for it to sink and I can bury it further that way.

 So I've got about a third of the cup filled with soil and I'm going to grab the Skittles seedling hear that stretched. The other thing is I'm going to be keeping them afterwards in the humidity Dome still so they are not going to be going outside of here. And they can still stay inside of the seedling tent. They can stay in here for a good amount of time which is also nice about it. And then one other thing I almost forgot to tell you guys about before I do this, So in the beginning I mentioned how I'm going to be doing a comparison between the Nukeheads nutrient line and the fox farm Dirty Dozen nutrients. So I have one plant of each strain that we used for each nutrient line, and I marked that on their tags. 

So you can see that with the Skittles there's the FF and that just means I'm going to be using the Fox Farms Dirty Dozen on that guy. And then the Skittles right here you'll see it says n h and that just means nukeheads nutrients. So I'm going to do this first I need to cut the rapper that is around it you don't leave that on after this point, that is just for the seedling stage. So let's see if I can do this with one hand. Okay yeah so it is best to cut down in the corner there so you don't hit any of the roots that may have grown out from the cube you know sometimes they do grow out the bottom and then also out the sides. So remember the way you know that these guys are ready to be transported is that there is a root coming out of the bottom and you can see here there's two roots coming out. So let's just get that to focus. There you go yeah you can see two roots coming out there so it is ready, so I'm just going to take the wrapper off and then planted in the soil.

We will see if there is any roots coming out of the sides and it doesn't look like it with this one, all right so you want to make sure to put it in the cup of the very center of the cup and you want it to make sure that it is standing straight up. So this will be a good amount because I can bury the stem with soil. So alright let me do that and I will be right back. So here it is after I finished putting the soil on top. And you can see all the little Corners where there were gaps between the rockwool cube and Solo Cup I filled it up to the top and covered up a good amount of that stem. So you can see it is a lot shorter now and is standing straight up. You can kind of pack the soil sideways to get it to stand straight up that way.But just be very gentle as you don't want to stress that stem or Roots out at all.

 Once you have it this way, don't pack of the topsoil at all, you just want to kind of leave it gently on there, so the roots can easily grow out into the soil. And then it is all done being transplanted so all you got to do is take your label and put it into the soil carefully and put it around the edge and here and you are all set. So now that they're in the ocean forest soil, I'm just going to be using water that is pH at 6.3. So I've got a whole bottle mixed right here so I'm going to give them a little bit and then give them a misting. And at that point the transplant is completed.

All right guys here we are 24 hours later from the transplant into the Solo cups, and you can see they have grown a decent amount. Those first sets got a lot bigger from the fan leaves that is. And now they are working on their second set of fan leaves. They are also not leaving as much and are kind of looking like they're no longer about to topple over. Again misting them throughout the day and keeping humidity and temperature high. 78 degrees for temperature and then humidity is whatever it is with the Dome closed. Like I said yesterday I'm starting to open the vents now. So I haven't cracked yesterday and now I'm going to open them up a little further and I'll open them up about a quarter of the way let's say. And I'll do it for both of them. And that is pretty much it.

Alright guys we are back for the very next day here, and you can see first off that I lowered this 45 watt light slightly just a few inches. And when I have the humidity Dome it is about 3 in from the top of that. Now you can see that they are all growing their second set of fan leaves here. Some of them are further along as you can see actually this guy the Skittles Have bigger ones, their second set is bigger than the rest, and then the Grape Ape are the ones that have kind of the smallest second-set going with the Pineapple Chunk in the middle.

Alright guys we are exactly 24 hours later here and the seedlings are continuing to grow really well as I showed you yesterday. Just continuing with the misting, no need to water the soil just yet. Because that water in the tray below as well as the runoff from the mistings is enough, but once they are almost ready to transplant I will give them one last watering. So these plants are starting to grow really well. And since I already have the vents all the way open on the top of the Dome, what I'm going to do now is use a rockwool cube to kind of keep the Dome cracked open. And this is so I'm still just gradually lowering the humidity a little bit each day. So I'm going to take this rockwool Cube and just put it under here. And that way it just kind of cracks it and makes it so it lowers the humidity a little more without having to take the lid off. After having it like this for probably two days I will be taking the lid completely off. 

It has been 24 hours since I started using the rockwool cube to hold the Dome open, so now what I'm going to do is just go straight to the Dome being off. And I will probably not be putting that back on, you can't go with that off for like half of a day and then put it back on. And then go full day the next day, but  it's just going to be pretty much the same as taking off right now. So no more with the Dome, I will be continuing with the spray bottle though of plane pH water.

Alright guys we are back here for the very next day and you can see we've had some very nice growth since the last clip. And again I am going to be transplanting these guys into their final 3 gallon smart pots out in the garage, where that vegetative tent is, and I will be doing that today. All right guys now we are ready to head out into the garage where I will transplant the seedlings into their new home. So let's go check that out!

 Alright guys so now we are outside in the garage with the vegetation tent, and you'll see I've got my Limoncello Haze mother plant currently vegging in here as well. So I will be adding these guys in there with her as there is plenty of room for all 7 plants total. I brought the 525 watt Bloom beast in here with the veg dial dialed up to about 35% at this point. I might move that over more and then add in like a 300w LED just while these guys are still on the smaller side and still kind of in early veg.

Alright guys so now I'm going to demonstrate transplanting one of these guys into their smart pot, so let's get started with that. Alright guys so I've got my smart pot about three-quarters of the way filled up with the ocean forest. And now I'm going to take my little Skittles seedling right here and I'm going to place it right in the very center of the cup. And kind of just twist it a little bit to make a little bit of an imprint for where I will be planting this guy for when I take it out of the Solo Cup. So important not to push down too hard or Pack Soil below too tightly because that will make it hard for this new roots to grow into, but it is okay too lightly place it in like I have done here just so you can make a little and print that you can see. 

So once you've done that you can take your tag out and gently loosen up the soil around the edges by squeezing gently around the Sides of the Solo Cup. And then all you got to do is put your fingers over the top like this, gently turned her upside down, and the cup is just going to slide right out like so. Or the soil is at least. So you can see there is a good amount of root growth coming out of the bottom there and all around the sides, so all you got to do at this point now is placed her right and you can see the rockwool cube coming out of their little bit. That's kind of cool looking, but here I'm going to place it right in there. And now all you got to do is fill around the edges with soil.

 Alright folks there we have our first transplanted seedling, and Again that is the Skittles that will be receiving the nuke heads nutrients. And again these are the nuke head seeds as well, so it is going to be nice how their genetics work with their nutrients come as they are supposed to be a really good combination for getting monster sized buds. So got her transplanted and made sure she is standing straight up and is in the very center of the pot. And now I'm just going to give her a light watering around the edges with that new soil, so there is root growth going outwards away from that rockwool Cube. It doesn't have to be a heavy watering or anything like that, just enough to get the soil damp and then you want to give a little bit of a misting. 

And this water, and with this watering you don't need to get any runoff, it is just to get that soil damp. And you can even just mist it like so here. And that will help it kind of get those or getting those roots growing out and it's also going to help the soil kind of settle down. Alright guys so now I'm going to transplant the rest of these seedlings here into their smart pots, and I will have them all set up in here and I will be back for that one last final shot to show you what that looks like. Alright guys here's the shot to show you guys what it looks like after all those seedlings were transplanted. 

And you can see everything fits in there just perfectly, even with that mother plant it is a little bit of a tight squeeze, but they will only be, the ceilings are only going to be in there for another week and a half, so we will make it work for the time being. I've got this 300w Mars Hydro hanging above these guys just cuz the bloom Beast isn't covering all of them and I didn't want to leave them in the dark. So that is raised pretty high up there cuz we don't need to give them too much light at the moment, and I missed it all of the plants as well as give them that light watering and the new soil after transplant. So that it would help like I mentioned help the roots grow out into that new style. 

So I've got my fans going as well as the heater so I can keep the temperature and humidity in the range of 60 to 65% for humidity and then 72 to about 79 degrees Fahrenheit for temperature. So that is it for the transplant and I will be back for next week shortly where I will be doing that first nutrient feeding.

 Alright GreenBox Growers, that completes the seedling days as well as the introductory video to my nukeheads groceries. And I will be back shortly with that week 1 of vegetation video of these plants, where I will be showing you guys that first nutrient feeding. And that is where we will first start seeing the differences between the New Kids nutrient line up as well as that dirty dozen lineup buy Fox Farm.

NukeHeads Seed & Flower Power Nutrient Line Review

NukeHeads Care Package Unboxing


 

What's up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for another LIT episode of GreenBox Grown! So for today I'm really pumped, because I got this awesome care package in the mail from Nuke Heads and that is an online seed bank that is located in the US. You can check them out at nukeheads.com online, as they have some awesome Genetics there.  

So in today’s video I'm going to show you guys exactly what I got from Nuke Heads in the mail, and I got some seeds as well as nutrients. So we will check that out, and is always before we get started I would like to mention to check out our MERCH at GreenBoxGrown.com. And also check out the link down below to visit our patreon page to get that go one-on-one grow advice. And links to both of those pages will be down below in the description so you guys can check that out after the video, and now that you guys know what we're doing today let's get started! 

Now like I said in today's video I will be unboxing the seeds as well as nutrients that I got from Nuke Heads. But I will be doing a Grow Series in the future where I will grow in their own tent just Nuke Heads seeds and just using the Nuke Head fertilizer.  Obviously I'll have them in soil and pots, but for the other products such as nutrients and seeds it will be all Nuke Heads!

Here we are up close with the package, and I got my nuke heads sticker with their logo on it. I've got the seeds in this package and I think I've got like four or five different strains. One of which was Autoflower, all right here we are with the flower power nutrient line by Nuke Heads. And you will see at the bottom we've got the uranium veg which is all you will need apparently for vegetation and then up top we got the Nuke Heads plutonium Bloom. Which is as you could probably guess all you will need for flour. So it says this fertilizer does not contain plutonium, It is just our naming theme, so that is cool.

 On the back, feed once one scoop per gallon of water and works with RO water, which is reverse reverse osmosis water or tap water. If feeding by PPM 200 PPM is suggested, provides primary and secondary nutrients and soil can be recycled with our formula. Is this a soil, oh it’s a fertilizer.

Have you seen once every other week, or based on coloration, interesting. It is pretty much the same thing for the veg stuff, so like I said I will be doing a grow serious with their seeds and just this nutrients. Because Nuke Heads does claim that their nutrients really does below them up and gets them some huge buds. So let's see that is pretty much it in there so I've got my nutrients both veg and Bloom. I've got my sticker, and then she needs, so let's open that up now.

 And again these people are in the US which is really cool and shipping only take a couple days to get there. I'll check that out green box Crown genetics you got to see that on there, so they gave me a custom little packaging which is pretty badass. So huge shout out to the Nuke Heads lab! Very cool! They've got it very well sealed as you don't want these seeds Banging around in the package. But I really like that, green box Brown genetics, okay here we go.

 Cool so I was right I got five different strands, and I'll look at that they come in these little Jurassic Park vials like where they had those different strains of dinosaurs in the movies. So I'm trying to remember what I got s***.

All right I needed a little reminder of which strains I got, and I only got regular feminized seeds no autoflowers. So I've got some Skittles, got the Grape Ape up here, some Girl Scout cookies right here, this is the blueberry headband right here And then some pineapple chunk right there so a really good lineup. And again I'm probably going to try and grow all of these or at least one of each of these strains when I do the series with these nutrients so huge shout out again to Nuke Heads! And MMJ lab genetic. Huge shout out to them I'm very stoked on this and on the green box and packaging and I'm looking forward to starting this Grow Series.

 All right folks, that concludes this review of the Nuke Heads Seed Bank, and if you enjoy the video please give it a thumbs up and don't forget to comment below with your feedback.
