OG Kush Update: Week 7 of VEG

SCROG Net Completely Full + Almost Flower!


 
 

What is up GreenBox Growers and welcome back for the week 7 of vegetation video for the OG Kush Screen of Green Grow series! Now the plants are really doing well in terms of vegetative growth and they are almost completely filled out the scrog net. So what I am thinking is including this week, we are probably just going to do two more weeks of vegetation before flipping to flower. So that means we will do this week and then week 8 of vegetation and then we will flip to flower.



 Now I am waiting about a day or two before we flip to flower to add that second layer of the scrog net as well as to do the next defoliation in the series as well as a lollipopping to each of the plants. Now this week is going to be another simple one in that we will just be doing the normal LST training with the scrog net, and our normal vegetative nutrient feeding. So now that you know what we are doing in this week's video, let's get started with the first day!

All right Growers, so here we are for the first day of the week and first off just a reminder we are shaking up those CO2 canisters everyday if you are using them. Now you will notice I removed the fan that was over here and I brought it down below so that I could get some good air circulation going on below the canopy. The reason for that is it is going to help prevent issues like mold as well as pests from getting attracted to down there because there is no air flow once this thick canopy covers that area up. So up top here will still be good because we still have this oscillating fan right here and the carbon filter is going so that will give us plenty of air movement up top above the canopy.

 Now the plants are ready for their next watering so that is going to be their third plane watering since the last nutrient feeding, and they actually stoked up that last watering really quickly so I am going to bump up the amount of water we are giving to the plants to two gallons and 1/4 split between all four of the plants.  Now that, the fact that they dried up really quickly like that is a sign that you want to increase it but you only want to increase it a little bit at a time. So again this is the third playing watering today and then the next watering will be a nutrient feed. Now I am going to do some low stress training today but it is going to be a little different and that I am just going to be bending the big main tops that are taller than the rest.


 And the reason being is that allow for the shorter ones to catch up and get to the same height as those ones. So just a little bit of low stress training, and before I go ahead and do that watering and low stress training I want to show you guys. There is some rust colored looking spots showing up on some of the fan leaves, what that is is a sign of a Cal Mag deficiency, as well as that I am misting too often. 

So what we are going to do is increase the amount of cal-mag that we mix in with our nutrient feeding to 1.5 teaspoons per gallon of water instead of just one tsp. And then what I'm going to do is I'm just going to cut back to one, maybe two mistings per day max. But I will only be doing to mistings on Saturdays, so most days it will be just one misting per day. So that is pretty much it for today's update, remember to keep temperature around 75 degrees Fahrenheit, range around 73F-78F is okay. And then relative humidity you want to be at around 55% to 65% but in veg it is better to be closer to the 60% to 65% range. So now I'm going to go ahead and do that low stress training on the main tops and then I will feed them they're playing watering. All right I will see you guys back here after that tomorrow for day two of the week!

We are now back here for day two of the week, and as you can see the plants are responding really well to that low stress training, so what I'm going to do today is actually give them a little bit of rest. That is always a good idea, you do not want to overtrain them because eventually that will overstress them.

Which leads to slower growth no, so no low stress training today just going to let them continue growing up through the scrog net and then tomorrow we will probably train them a little bit more. So what I will be doing however today is just giving them that one misting as well as shaking up the CO2 canisters and then that is really up for today's update. So let's go ahead and get that missing done and then I will see you guys back here in twenty-four hours for day 3 of week 7. All right Peace!!!


All right grammar so we are back here four days three of the week and I actually got him a lot later than expected today so as you can see, the plants are under watered and a little droopy well actually very droopy from it.  So I was going to get home earlier today and I was going to water them but it looks like I'm about 5 to 8 hours too late and that is why they look underwater. So today we are going to be doing their next nutrient feeding and this actually since it's only the second time this has happened, this is not going to be in and she like I said if it kept happening then it would cause issues with the plants. 

But I'm going to make sure that this does not happen again for this grow. So we are going to be doing the nutrients feeding today and what that will be is the week four mix from vegetation on the fox farm feeding schedule. I sense we are doing an extended. Of Education that's why we are repeating week for because it is the last week of veg for the feeding schedule. So we are going to be doing it at full strength like I said and we are going to be doing probably about 2 and 1/4 or between 2 and 1/4 and 2 and 1/2 gallons of water. 

That's what seems like it's working for them right now, and we are going to mix that up and then I'm going to do a misting and then of course don't forget to shake up a CO2 canisters. Now I will be holding off on the LST for today just because they are under watered and don't need to add any more stress to them at this moment. So we are going to go ahead and get those nutrients mixed up and the plants watered, and then we will be back here in twenty-four hours for day 4 of the week. All right peace Growers!

Alright so we are still actually here for day 3 of the week and I just wanted to let you guys know that we did bump up the amount of cal-mag that we mixed with the nutrients, so I went up to 1 and 1/2 teaspoon per gallon of water. So a total of 3 teaspoons because we did two gallons here. The reason being is like I was showing you guys earlier in the week we were having those issues with some Cal Mag deficiency or signs of Cal Mag deficiency showing up on some of the leaves. So that is why I bumped it up there, just wanted to let you guys know that and then I will see you guys back here for a day for of the week.

 What up Growers and welcome back for day 4 of week 7!  Now today is going to be a pretty basic update as we are just going to be doing a light misting as well as some low stress training on the tops that I popped up through the scrog net. But before we get to that, of course we want to do a shake of the CO2 canisters if you are using them and then also I just wanted to show you guys how the plants are looking much better, and a lot perkier as well after that nutrient feeding from yesterday. Now as I said yesterday, we did bump up the Cal Mag dosage because of the Cal Mag deficiency that was showing on the plants such as right here you can see they look like those Rusty spots almost that start on the center fingers of the fan leaves. 

So we bump that up yesterday and that should help, and then I also removed most of the leaves that were showing signs of the Cal Mag deficiency just so the plants would look a lot better. Removing them isn't going to really help much at this point but I figured since they are damaged you might as well do a little minor defoliation with those leaves. So you can see they are looking much better Under The Canopy things are going well, and as I was saying we are probably going to finish this week out and then one more week of vegetation and that is when we will be flipping them to flower.

 So that will be coming up really quickly here and then at that point we will be stripping all of these leaves from underneath the canopy just defend things out for the bud growth. And we will also be doing a little defoliation up top here as well as adding that second layer to the scrog net. So that is pretty much it for today's update, I'm going to go ahead and do that misting as well as the low stress training and then I will see you guys back here in 24 hours for day 5 of the week! 

Okay Growers we are now back here for day 5 of the week, and the ladies look like they are reacting really well to that low stress training from yesterday. Today is such a day we are going to hold off on the low stress training and just give them a little time to rest and grow upwards. But we will be giving them a watering today as the soil is pretty dry. Now I am going to be splitting 2 and 1/2 gallons or just under 2 and 1/2 gallons because it looks like they are still drying up really quickly even with that 2 and 1/4 gallons. So does just going to be a plane watering and this is the first plane watering since that last nutrients feeding.  

Now besides that I am just going to be giving them a misting as well as shaking the CO2 canisters of course. And then that is pretty much it, so let's go ahead and do that misting and watering and then I will see you guys back here for the next day of the week. Okay so actually before we get started with the watering and misting there are two things I want to share with you guys. So first off now that we are increasing the amount of water to a good level, you are going to be getting an exceptional amount of runoff out of your pots, especially if you are using these or smart pots just because they have so many holes along the sides. 

Now it is important that immediately after you are done watering, you vacuum up or somehow soak up with towels that water that has runoff because you don't want you are plants sitting in puddles of water for too long. And really after a couple hours that is too long. So what will happen is if they are sitting in the water, first off the water is really going to raise the humidity to an overly high level. And then not only is that bad for the plants but then eventually it is going to start attracting pests to the grow room. Next having that puddle down there is going to cause the soil to keep soaking it back up so that it stays too wet or over wet, and that will eventually causes root rot and slow growth with your plants. 

So very important to get that moisture up and out of the tent right away. Second thing I wanted to share with you guys as I am going to be lowering the lights pretty quickly here, probably in another day or two, reason being is once the plants are used to the strength and distance of the light, lowering it will help them grow faster as well as give them more power to grow bushier.

 Or once in flower it will help them grow larger bud, so we wants us lowly work the light down just an inch or two at a time. I will get more details on that once it is time to start lowering I just wanted to give you guys a heads up. All right so that's pretty much it for today's update and now we are ready to start that first plane watering as well as our misting! 

Okay it is now day 6 of the week here for the OG Kush plants and I actually went ahead last night and decided I was going to turn off the second Electric Sky led. The reason being as I noticed it was a little too much power for the plants, they were starting to show signs of light stress in the way you can tell that is by the yellowing of the leaves, as well as the drooping of the tops and the top leaves, closest towards the light. You can see their kind of Droopy. So after turning off the second LED, that a few hours before lights off last night I could already tell today the plants were Greener, the leaves were all perked up a lot more and they just look a lot healthier overall.

 So I'm still getting used to using these Electric Sky LEDs, they are very powerful and obviously work really well but it is only my second for a with them but anyways. What my plan is is to keep that one light on for now and then I will turn the second one on during flower. But after about four more days of just having the one light back on and they are a little healthier looking, I will start lowering that one a couple inches at a time just so they can get used to the more intensity. 

And then like I was saying once we flipped onto flower then they should be ready for the second LED. But anyways plants are looking good soil is still pretty moist so no need to water today, I will be doing that one misting and then besides that, no LST I just want to let them recover and rest up after that light stress issue. But like I said they are already looking better, so that is it for day 6 of the week and I will be back here in 24 hours for the last day of week 7! 

Alright GreenBox Growers, we are back here 24 hours later for the last day of week 7. So the plants are looking better each day now that we have the second light turned off, they are looking healthier every 24 hours so that is good. And again just a reminder for the lights we are going to wait to turn that second one on for when we get right to the beginning of flower. In the meantime I'm just going to keep the one Electric Sky 300 watt LED on and we will slowly lower it a couple inches at a time, probably starting tomorrow. So tomorrow will be the first lowering, and another heads-up if I just refilled the TNB naturals CO2 canisters with 1 refill packet each so those are good to go for the next two weeks. 

And since the plants are looking healthier, I am going to do some low stress training on the toddler tops after today's clip. So in the next shot you were going to see we are going to do the low stress training we are going to give them a misting, and then we will also be watering the plants today as they already. And that is going to be their second plane watering since the last nutrient feeding and we are going to split about 2 and 1/2 gallons between all for plants. Maybe a little less because it has been cooler lately, but I am just going to see how the runoff goes. So that is it for today's clip, I am going to water and mist them as well as the LST then now and then we will see you guys back here for the first day of week 8, peace! 

Alright GreenBox Growers, so that officially concludes week 7 of vegetation for the OG Kush Screen of Green Grow series! now hopefully by the end of this coming week or by the beginning of week 9, we are going to be ready to start the flowering phase and what that means is we are going to add that second layer to the scrog net as well as do a Lollipopping and defoliation. Stay Tuned for next week's episode as we are going to start lowering the LED light during the week. And as always I want to thank you guys for watching this week's video, really hope you enjoyed it, and until next time... 

Happy Growing!

Checking Trichomes on the Gorilla Glue Buds

Week 7 Update for the Stealth Grow Series


 
 

What up GreenBox Growers, and welcome back for the week 7 video of that Autoflower Gorilla Glue Stealth Grow Series! Now I am happy to say I just received that Trichome Scope in the mail, so on this week's video we will be doing that first look at the trichomes, and based off of what we see we will go off of that in terms of when the flush will start. Now I am thinking this will be either the last or second-to-last week of flower. And then after that we will start that 10 to 14 day flush. So we are getting really close to getting ready for Harvest for these Gorilla Glue plants, and also this week's nutrient feeding will most likely be the last one for the grow series. But again that is just based on how the trichomes look when we look at them in today's clip.  Alright growers so now that you know what we are doing in this week's video, let's get started with day 1 of the week!

Alright so here we are for day 1 of week 7 and the plants are actually ready for their next watering and that will be the next nutrient feeding. But before we get to that I just want to show you guys the buds on both of these plants are getting absolutely massive, especially with the one in the back here that is closest to the CO2 or the exhale CO2 bag. You can see these are just absolutely humongous monster sized colas all the way around. And they look actually like they have turned around and got better in terms of the quality or the way they look. So they are actually starting to catch up in terms of the frostiness of the buds on this one.

Now don't get me wrong these colas are absolutely massive as well, they are just not as filled out as this guy over here. But like I was saying before they do look a little bit higher in quality. So buds are looking really good and we are going to check those trichomes in a second, but first let me show you guys the nutrient feeding that I will be doing today. So I will be splitting a gallon between both of these plants of water. And I will be doing 3 teaspoons of the grow, 3 teaspoons of the micro, 3 teaspoons of the bloom, and then 1 teaspoon of the Cal Mag and that is per gallon of water.

 So remember to shake up your bottles before pouring into your water so that they are all mixed up and such and then you can stir it in. And now what I am going to do is hook up that new trichome scope, so I have to hook it up to my face camera right here. And then I will have a good shot for you guys to show you a close up on this trichomes. All right so we are going to be checking on the Gorilla Glue plant right here that is closest to the front. And we are going to be looking using this tricon scope right here. Again this has Wireless connectivity so I've got it hooked up to my smart phone over here so I can see what I am doing on there as well as recorded at the same time.

And this thing goes from 50X 1000X in terms of its capability, and it has a nice little LED light right there to make it a little easier to see. So let me zoom in a little bit for you guys on where I am going to look at the very top of the Bud there. That very nice part of the cola, so let me get you guys focused on that. Alright so here is a decent View on the trichomes. You can see mostly milky at this point. There are a few Amber here and there but nothing crazy or ready for Harvest, so I think I'll week more to go and turns a flower and then maybe another week after that or half a week. But we will keep checking throughout.

You can see some Amber there but again that is on a Sugar Leaf right there and you want to be checking the trichomes right on the bud because sugar leaves will show Amber a lot sooner than when the buds have fully developed. So you can see if I can focus, not really any amber in there.  Decent look and I'll try and slow down the shot so it is not so shaky. There is a nice shot for you guys of some clear still but mostly though which is nice.  Let's see how close and I can get on them. Yeah it's just kind of out of focus, that's a nice close-up for you guys, very close. You can see those are still a little clearer but again that is on the Sugar Leaf itself so these guys probably still have two weeks to go now that I'm seeing this.

 Because for Sugar Leaf that is still kind of early, but look back in there it's looking very nice and milky. Let me try and find one that's A better close up on the hair for you and this is a close up on those pistols, does white hairs that eventually turn Amber and curl in. That's what these look like up close, very cool. Let's see if we can get it close up on some trichomes, oh yeah look. I see some Amber in there but damn this thing is fun to use that is for sure. All right so that concludes the trichome check for now. But yeah I'm going to do that nutrients feeding now and then we will be checking these again at the end of the week. Are at so I will be back in 24 hours for a day 2 of week 7.  Alright, Peace Growers!

It is now day 2 of the week, so 24 hours after looking at those trichomes and not too much change in terms of Bud development. But we can see they are definitely nearing that flushing stage. So yesterday we looked and I took a second look afterwards at those clips of the trichomes. And what I gathered was it's about 80% to 90% milky or cloudy, with a little bit of clear still.  And then starting to see some Amber trichomes, so what I am thinking is we will have one more nutrient feeding and then we will start that flush. So I would say there is going to be this week and then probably in half of next week, maybe three-quarters of the way of that week. And then we are going to start the flush for finishing up these buds. 

So very happy with how they are coming out, the smell is very strong like I keep saying, and development they look really good in terms of Aesthetics. And you can see pretty much there is still a lot of white pistils left but they are very frosty and I would say they still got a good way to go and turns it fattening up and soliding up or getting more solid in terms of development.  So there was still be a lot of change in terms of how these buds look.  So that is it for today's update and I will be back here in 24 hours for day 3 of the week, alright peace Growers!

It is now day 3 of the week and these ladies are actually ready for their next watering, and that is going to be their first plane watering since that nutrients feeding. So like I was saying before we are going to do another trichome check later this week or early next week so probably once I do that third plane watering of the series, since that last nutrient feeding, that is when I will also check them again. So before I do the next nutrient feeding I will double check to see if they still have a ways to go.

 And then we will decide from there. So at this point you should have pretty much trimmed away all of the fan leaves or leaves that have been sticking out. So I am probably going to finish trimming the rest of these that are left seeing as these aren't even really that useful anymore to the plant. And also trimming them away will help with increasing yields. So just be careful you want to just trim them up to the bud, you don't want to try and dig around inside the bud to get to the stem because that will actually kind of damage and disrupt the flower growth. So I will be doing, I will be splitting a gallon of water, actually probably closer to a gallon and a quarter between these two plants. Again just plain water and then that is really it for today's update, so I will be back here in 24 hours for day 4 of the week. So until then, Happy growing!

Alright folks we are back now for day 4 of the week for the stealth grow series, and buds are looking really good today, you can tell they're starting to finish up and they are reaching that almost ready for flush phase. So I definitely think we will have one more nutrients feeding in this but after that it will definitely be time to flush. So at this point the buds are just fattening up a little bit more each day and just kind of curling in those pistols and growing over those fan leaves so they're pretty much non-existent anymore. But anyways here is a nice close-up, there's no just getting really Frosty in particular. I just noticed that today so I want to show you guys how that looks.

But see if I can get a good focused close-up for you, but you can see there are a lot of orange pistols there as well as some that are still White. But they are no longer standing straight up, they are all curling in somewhat towards the bud. So yeah you can see they're pretty Frosty, here is a nice shot and then probably at the beginning of next week I will do the next trichome update as well. So that's pretty much it for today for your day for update. And I will be back here in 24 hours for day 5 the week. Alright peace Growers!


Alright grower so we are back again another day later so it is now day 5 of week 7 and the buds are just continuing to fill out and finish up. Again I think we will still need one more nutrients feeding before that flush, it is possible that we won't but we will be checking on those trichomes come the first day of next week. So that will be week 8, and the plants are ready for their next water in, I will show you the soil in just a second. And I will give you guys a nice little close up. On the trichomes and how Frosty these buds are getting, there is a nice little shot of the pistols and that is that top main Cola. 

And then here we are with one of the side colas. And you can see they're so heavy they're kind of leaning out and away from the plant over here. So we've got about six colas like that going around and then that main one and there is probably another 5 smaller or medium sized colas. And then over here we've got about 4 to 5 I would say main colas going on and then about another three to four medium size, small to medium-sized colas. 


So here is the soil you can see it is completely dry, I mean I just felt it and it is dry out an inch and a half deep. So they are ready for their next watering and that is going to be there second plane pH watering or just plain if you are in soil. So we are going to be splitting about a gallon and a quarter between these two plants and then that will pretty much be at 4 today's update. All right I will be back here in 24 hours for day 6 of the week. All right please Growers!

 Alright folks are we are back here another 24 hours later so that means it is now day 6 of the week, and the buds are really starting to finish up really nicely now, they are getting that nice Christmas tree look and shape to them. And they're just getting Frosty or by the day, so they are really isn't too much handling or caring you need to be doing at this point. Besides the watering and just making sure that the temperature and humidity stay right where they need to be. So right now you need to be around 75 degrees Fahrenheit and  a humidity of around 60%. So buds are looking good, not ready yet for a watering since they're still good from that last one we did yesterday so that is really it for 2 days update, and I will be back here in 24 hours for the last day of week 7. Alright peace Growers!

Okay so does now officially the last day of week 7 here, and plants are ready for their next water so that is going to be their third plane pH watering since that last nutrient feeding we did. And based on the development, honestly they might be ready to start that flush at this point. So what we are going to do is tomorrow which will be the first day of week 8, we are going to do another try come scope check and then based on the results we get from that, I will determine if it is time to flush. So if I am seeing anywhere from 5% to 10% Amber during that look then we are going to start the flush on that next watering.

 Now if not, we will probably do one more nutrients feeding like we were discussing before and then that will be at. So that is pretty much it for today's update and we will be back in 24 hours for that trichome scope so get excited because it may be time to start that flush. And what that would mean is we are only 2 weeks away from Harvest at this point. All right folks, so now what I will do is that plane pH watering for the plants, probably going to split about a gallon and a half now between the two plants. Because they did drink up that last watering pretty quickly so it does look like they need a little bit more. All right I will be back here in 24 hours peace!

Alright GreenBox Growers that officially concludes week 7 of the stealth grow series, and like I was saying in that last clip, I am going to be checking on those trichomes tomorrow which will be day 1 of week 8. And based on those results I will be deciding if it is time to start that flush or not. So I am actually on the other side of the fence now thinking it might be time to start the flush based on the development over this last week. So if I am in that range of 5% to 10% Amber trichomes we will begin it. Meaning just two more weeks until Harvest. So I will be back shortly with that next weeks video, as always thank you guys for watching, I hope you enjoyed today's video, and until next time…

Happy Growing!!!

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

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

Clones are Rooted and Ready for Transplant!


 
 
 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy Growing!!!

All right growers here we are outside in the garage for day 1 of the week. You can see the plants are ready for their next watering and another thing that is going on is I had a issue where my pH pen was kind of off with a calibration so I've been watering with an off pH so you can see there is issues like the yellowing leaves, summer curling down which the weather has been really hot here lately so the high heat has been an issue combined with that. And then I also unfortunately lower the grow light a little too much so I raised it back up a little bit and I fix the calibration on my pen and adjusted the temperature in here and now the plans are doing really well. So like I said they're ready for their next watering which is going to be their third plain pH watering since the last nutrient feeding. 6.3 is the ph and I have it mixed up right there.

 So I'm going to show you guys watering one of the plants, but first I wanted to give you a couple close-ups on the buds just to show you how they have developed as of late. And to show you the progress, especially under this new lighting. So you can see the blue Amnesia right here those buds really looking good, some top shelf right there really Frosty and really dense all the way down the branch. And it smells really good. Now the Tangerine Dream here in the back that was affected by the pH as you can see the Heat and the light stress cause the leaves to curl down and yellow. There's some other colors changing too but sometimes when it yellow is like that and has some of those rust spots that can be a cow mag deficiency so I might add a little extra of that on the next nutrient feeding, but for now I'm just going to do the plane pH Watering.

 Here's the second Tangerine Dream plant and you can see but they're filling out nicely, they kind of slow down there when the like are too close and you can see some of the white pistols actually got a little burnt from it and Orange and got a little skinnier, so that's why I raised up the light and changed up the heat as well. And then finally before I do the watering, shown you guys the other blue Amnesia plant here and those buds are turning out really well also. Just smaller and shorter. But really there's a lot of nug Under The Canopy there so I will show you that there once I trim it back 4 Harvest. All right now let's get started with the plane pH watering.

 So I'm just going to film watering this one plant here the Tangerine Dream in the front left because this one was actually really affected by that off pH as you can see the leaves that are dying and getting spotted. That's usually from a potassium deficiencies or sometimes phosphorus or Cal Mag deficiency said that's, a deficiency is also an issue that can arise when your pH is off. So it is possible that they have a deficiency, but more likely it is because of the off pH because I have been feeding them nutrients properly. All right guys I'm going to show you guys the watering really quickly, and my plane ph 2 gallons here and I'm just going to give it a good soaking.

 And to be honest they are getting almost three-quarters of a gallon each of water so really just soaking the soil and getting a decent amount of runoff and that's really it. But the buds are going to continue to grow for a while now as that is really all that is left to do is for the buds to finish up, and I'm going to let that soak in there for a little bit and then give it some more like I usually do. But I really just want to give you guys one more really nice clothes up on this blue Amnesia here because those buds are pristine right now. Really Frosty, they aren't even done yet and they're probably going to fatten up a lot more, probably going to eat up all the rest of these fan leaves here. And just kind of going to fatten up and cover them up so you can't even see him anymore. Hopefully we are going to get those kinds of results with the buds on this guy's well. Alright guy said that is it for day 1 of week 7 and I will be back in 24 hours for day two, peace!

All right Growers we are back here for day 2 of week 7 out here in the garage, and I'm going to give you guys the next update on my LST Autoflower grow series. So I showed you guys that stress I was getting last week some up which was caused by the Light being too close, so I have raised it up to being about 2 feet away from the top of this main by bright here which is the tallest one here. So they're definitely growing a lot faster now and showing signs of improvement what you're about to see, so that was definitely part of the issue. And of course recalibrating the pH pen was huge, so always stay on top of that. All right so we did that plane pH watering yesterday, not looking like it's going to need any more water today. Tomorrow it probably will and the plants probably will so I will be doing the next nutrients feeding at that point. So today I really just be covering an update on the buds and how they have grown since the last video.

All right guy so I will start with this Tangerine Dream 1 here in the front, it's the furthest behind but that's because it was the most affected by the stress of the light. You can see now from this update, the hairs are no longer burning and they are turning white and growing again, the buds are fattening up and getting more Frosty. You can see the leaves are yellowing as much or curling down as much either which is a good sign. The ones down below and hear that kind of yellow and have some spots, that's more from the off pH. Not as much from the light stress, maybe a little bit from the heat stress but that's mainly from an off pH. Now of course this blue Amnesia here is just absolutely killing it these buds as you can see here are just absolutely massive and very dense and very frosty. So I'm very stoked on that, and then of course the second Tangerine Dream the buds are really fattening up now that I have the lights back up at an appropriate height. 

So very good progress there as you can see a lot of the leaves were damaged by the stress but she's and have some good yields either way. Finally the blue Amnesia and the back left is doing really well as always the buds are fattening up and getting frostier, and I always mention right Under The Canopy is a bunch of thugs. So she will be a decent yield nothing special because she grew so short, but I also want to show you guys one more good look at how the Tangerine Dream in the front has shaped up with all of it stops.  

So you can see she has a whole bunch different tops and let me give you an aerial view, it's almost like it's  fanned out like a star with all its different points, and then the main big bud right in the middle. But basically yes just this main tall one with all the a bunch of others all the way around which almost got his large is the main one. Alright let me give you guys one more close up on these blue Amnesia but it's cuz I didn't really give you a good lighting when I did that first time. All right here's a little bit of a better more lit up View. I mean really fattening up good but she still has a little bit of time to go so really stoked on that.

 all right Growers we are back 4 day 3 of the week and the plants are ready for their next watering, so that means it's time for their next nutrient feeding. So this is going to be week 8 of the flowering schedule, and there's no need all you'll see the next if you're following the fox farm Dirty Dozen schedule, you'll see I actually did last week week 7 of flour, so what that should mean is I'm on the sledgehammer flush. But because these are autos and I did not do every week of the veg nutrients, I'm just going to skip the flush for now and save that for the last two weeks of flush. So I'm moving on 2 week 8 or the 4th week of flowering nutrient mix. So because they are showing some signs of nitrogen toxicity and other issues, a little bit of stress, I'm doing this one at 70% strength So not doing this at full strength and have a couple of gallons mixed up. So be sure to follow that and of course I've got my 1 teaspoon  of Cal Mag per gallon and I have everything pH to 6.3.  All right so let's start with the watering now.

 You'll notice since I raised the lights, the plants are less and shock and are starting to fatten up the buds again. I'm going to see, I'm going to go with a watering of the Tangerine Dream in the front. so again they are probably getting almost a gallon each still have to makes it more after this, but it is good that you really soak the soil each watering cuz that is what's going to help you maximize their flowering potential. and I'll give you a close up of the buds and just a second here as they are starting to pick up and turns a growth and they're starting to go a little faster. All right so let that soak in and I will be giving it some more of course but you've seen this already so no need to continue showing the full water every time.

But as you guys can see here the Tangerine Dream buds are starting to definitely pick up that growth again and the hairs are staying the same back up. The buds are also getting Frosty or so that's always a good sign. No course the blue Amnesia is are doing really well as always in the buds are just continuing to fatten up and they're just getting really big in Frosty so that's really it for today's update but I will be back tomorrow 4 day 4.

All right folks were back 4 day for a week 7 here, and I'm really stoked because the buds are actually going back into flour where they're no longer looking like they are shocked and you can see I've been raising the lights back up she slowly each day just to get him out of that shock and I think I finally found the right height for these plants to flower in, or at least for this phase.

So I'm going to show you guys the progress we've had  in terms of the buds growing since the last video. They are good for watering since we did give them that nutrients feeding yesterday and the next watering is of course going to be a plain pH water. So you can see the buds I really coming along and you can see those white pistils  or hairs that were starting to Brown or turned a little bit of a burnt color. They are starting to form new ones and are growing up again and they're turning white so that is good that's what we want to see. You can tell all the little nugs and buds up and down the branches here are starting to form and fatten up more. 

Just going to be a matter of time before these guys are ready and much more larger and ready to be harvested. So of course the blue and leashes are doing well as always, really really high quality looking but here and you can see now the leaves are starting to curl in the hairs are starting to Curl and the buds are focusing on fattening up, and doing that last bit of growth. I would say about another week here and then I'mma start flushing here and I'll start checking on the tri comes here pretty quickly. But that's the same for the other blue and Leisure back there and for the Tangerine dream's they are both on the same page in terms of not really ready yet to be harvested or flushed of course but getting there as well.

 So that's just one of the Tangerine Dream buds in the front and then hears that main one in the back of that Tangerine Dream. Starting to get frostier and fattening up underneath and I think now that that light is raised up and not shocking it we will see a lot more growth.

 All right Growers we are back here 4 day 5 of week 7 and the plants are ready for their next watering but before I get into that I want to give you the daily update of the buds. I left the LEDs on for this filming just so you can get a different  view of the buds and they will be more lit up this way, but it starts raising the lights because I noticed that there were no longer new signs of light burn or stress on the plants and as you could see the buds are growing again and actually going pretty quickly. So you can see the Tangie dreams are really feeling that nice on both plants and of course the blue and lesions are continuing just as they have been as always.

 The blue and leashes will be harvested first since they are much further along but I'm actually really excited again to see how big these buds on this Tangerine Dream get just because There's so many different buds growing around they have buds growing from top to bottom and it really tall branches so I mean we could have some footlong cola's several of them on this planet here we will see what happens I am keeping this light where it is now as well as the temperature because it does seem to be working well and if I see any signs of stress I will adjust accordingly. And again this guy in the back just the leaves really change color the buds still growing all the way underneath down to the bottom of that call up there and there's several nice size ones. Another quick Shot Blue Amnesia looking good. This one is the All-Star of course with those buds all the way around can't wait to get some close-ups of that once it becomes Harvest Time. So like I was saying we've got the next watering up here and it's going to be the first Watering since the last nutrient feeding so it's going to the plane watering at 6.3. And I'm going to be soaking all of these guys I have two gallons filled I might have to fill up some more but yeah you guys know the drill, not going to show you guys any watering in this video just cuz of showed you so many times so I'm going to give you guys a break on that. But again I just want to show you how many different little nuggs are starting to pop up and fill out on these branches and you can see they are starting to connect and grow towards each other. And eventually they'll connect all the way up for some massive nugs. So are right we have a lot to look forward to to see with what these nugs do I will be back in 24 hours.

 All right folks who we are for day 6 of week 7 and yesterday we did the plane pH water And the buds are just continuing to grow on all of the plants. It's a little bit on the slower side for the Tangerine Dream but that's just because of the shock, so that's why they are further behind but they are definitely getting bigger and you can see the notes are filling out all the way up and down the branches and they still have a lot of those white hairs and they're actually perking back up and getting bigger so that's another good sign because I keep saying these bites have a lot more growth to go. So not a complete waste from that light shocked and again let that just be a lesson learned but I think we're going to get some good buds because I was turning out pretty nicely. 

And of course the blue and always look really on point and perfect. Get a good Focus shot there for you guys and you can see the buds are now just fattening up most of the hairs have curled up and end and a lot of them are still White and the budget Journal are just really really dance with try comes giving it that Frosty look. See if I can give you guys a good yeah there you go, so there's a nice little shot up close. And of course to not forget the Tangerine Dream in the back here  doing really well also and you can also see those nuggs our fattening up Under The Canopy so you can get a good shot their of that. So another good yielder as well and of course like the blue Amnesia it's really Frosty indent.

 I think next week I'll start checking the trichomes on this blue amnesia's, no need to do that yeah with the Tangerine Dream plants because they're not close enough. But yeah it's pretty much it for today keeping the conditions the same as they have been. Now that you're in Flowery can lower them a little bit especially at night you can drop a couple degrees So 67 degrees Fahrenheit surround 77 Fahrenheit is a good range to be in at this point and then around 50 to 55% humidity. Still want that air flow and circulation to be good but you don't want to be shaking the fan or branches that the nuggs our on so much that causes them to snap. So just a little bit of movement is all you need.

All right girl wears we are back here for the last day of week 7 and again the plants are ready for their next pH water so that is the second since the last nutrient feeding. But before I do that I want to show you how the buds have progressed and now that the Tangie dreams are out of that shock they are dressing tremendously each day in the blue tunisia's are doing just the same. So really starting to get Frosty and densening up with the blue Amnesia buds. keeping temperatures around the same as well as humidity, I think at the start of this coming week week 8 I'll be checking these try comes like I've been saying because of the blue amnesia's they are ready. 

I don't know if you guys noticed but I did pull off all of the Dead fan leaves that are on the plants and that is something you can do at this point because that's not going to help them. You'll know when they are ready to go When you tag on them because if they are dead they will just come right off from a very gentle pull. But if you are tugging on them and it feels like they are still attached then you should probably leave them alone. But if the leaves are all Crist up and crumbling. Just get him out of there cuz that's not good. And that's really it. So I'm just going to give them a plane pH watering at this point and I'm not going to show you guys since you already know the drill, but what I will do is give each plant a gallon of water and that's a total of 4 gallons. And that's because I'm really soaking them to get all of that run off because I want those buds to swell up now that it's towards the end of flower. 

All right so let me just give you guys one more quick close up on this. This video isn't really doing justice but she is really Frosty very dense and the smell is extremely citrusy and nice. You can see the butt is fat all the way down there I don't know if you can tell that blue Amnesia end of back now that I filled the leaves off. But you can see a lot more and it's a way fat nug under there.  Tangerine dream's smell amazing as well they're not as big yet but that's just because of the shocks so that's why they're further behind. But they are both moving along and fattening up. So I will be back next week with more details on that and we will start checking the trichomes to see when we can start flushing these plants.

 All right Growers that concludes the 7th week of this low stress training Autoflower grow, and I will be back in a few days with week 8 and I'm going to be starting to look at the truck comes in that video because it is getting close to harvest for the blue Amnesia plant. And then I'm just going to start keeping an eye on those Tangerine Dream buds just so I have a rough estimate of when they will be ready for Harvest.

Adding a SCROG to my Blue Dream Grow |  Week 7 of Vegetation

Adding a SCROG to my Blue Dream Grow | Week 7 of Vegetation

Week 7 pt. 2 of the SCROG Grow Series is now Available!


What’s up cannabis growers, my name is Dylan and welcome back to the Screen of Green Grow Series by GreenBox Grown.  So in part 1 of week 7 I showed you guys how to build the actual SCROG itself, and now in this video I will show you have to hang it above your cannabis plants.  This video is part 2 of week 7 and will also include me demonstrating how to train your plants through the SCROG properly, and the watering schedule for the week.  To jump ahead in this grow series, just visit greenboxgrown.com and visit the Videos section.  Alright, now lets get started with day 1 of the week where I’ll be hanging the Screen.

Now the first step in hanging your scrog is determining how you will be doing so.  As I mentioned in previous videos, some people hang them by string while others will mount it to the frame of their grow room.  It all depends on what will be most convenient and easiest for you.  In this case here, I found it works best to hang my SCROG from the upper frame of this greenhouse by string.  When hanging the Screen, be sure to have it low enough so it is resting slightly on the tallest branches below.  That way you can begin training your plants through right away.

Ok here is the next shot right after hanging the SCROG up and I am going to start pulling all my tops through that are already tall enough.  Right now I will just pull the tops through the squares right above,  but eventually I will be training them horizontally.  The purpose of a SCROG is to make it so every branch on the plant is at the exact same height, making it so the lighting is evenly distributed amongst all the tops.  What this does is allows every top to grow big dense buds like a main cola, instead of small and fluffy.  A plant grown without a scrog will have big buds growing on the main tops up high, and then smaller ones that grow down low on the smaller branches.  So the SCROG is great at not only increasing yields but increasing quality as well.

The way you want to train your branches through the SCROG is horizontally as that will strop the tall branches from getting taller and will allow the shorter branches to grow up and through the SCROG.  So when a branch starts getting too high through the SCROG, all you do is pull it back down through the square and up through one further away so it lowers the branch.  It is best to pull the branches out away from the center of the plant and towards the edge of the SCROG.  

It is time for the nutrient feeding of the week, and I will be once again doing the week 4 mix as I am still keeping this plants in vegetation.  I will also be mixing the flower kiss foliar spray for misting the plants.  Don’t forget to add a tsp of cal mag per gallon of water, as well as half a tsp of coco wet if growing in coco coir.  Always mix everything to gather first and then pH to the proper level.  Now that these plants are getting even larger, I will be increasing the amount of water each one gets.  At this point I am pretty much soaking the complete topsoil layer and am getting a very slight runoff out the bottom of the pots.  Remember to water each plant a little bit at a time so it can soak in.  Next, I am going to mist the plants, and with the SCROG I will need to go under to get that area of the plants.  It is important you spray from above and under the SCROG so you can get full coverage of all the foliage and you can get in the middle of the canopy.

Here’s an example of what to do when the branch has grown taller through the square.  Simply pull it down and back up through one further away from the center of the plant.  You’ll only be moving one square at a time usually and that is ok, just be sure the branch is through the square enough so it an stay there.

These plants are now ready for another watering and I will be giving them a plain pH’d water and misting.  Just as before, I am getting a slight runoff out the bottom of the pots and and misting both over and under the SCROG.

Now for the rest of the video I will be training the plants through the SCROG and will be giving one last misting.  It is important that you stay on top of training the plants every day as it will help with getting more branches growing through the SCROG.  You will notice after adding the Screen that your plants seem to speed up in growth, almost like a vine that is growing up to a lattice.  And this is actually somewhat true with growing marijuana, so be sure to use that to your advantage by staying on top of your training each day.  As you open up that space in the center area it will allow more light to penetrate through the canopy, which in turn will help those branches grow up faster.

Here we are for the very final day of the week and you can see already the Screen has about 15 tops poking through.  Pretty Soon I will have even more, and eventually almost every square in the scrog will be filled!  It is at that point that where I will lollipop the plants and flip them over to flower.  Lollipoping is a method of trimming the lower foliage for more bud growth up top, but I will explain that in further detail when we get closer to that point.  For now just stay focused on training as many branches as you can through the scrog!

That is the end of week 7 for the Screen of Green Series and I will be back shortly with week 8 which will actually be the last week of vegetation.  In that video I will cover the watering schedule for the week as well as all the branches I am pulling through the SCROG.  If you enjoyed the video please give it a thumbs up and comment below with your feedback.  Also don’t forget to subscribe to my channel and turn on the notifications for updated on my latest grows.  As always, thank you for watching and until next time…

Week 7: How to Build a SCROG Screen

Building a SCROG Screen for the Blue Dream Grow


 
 

What’s up Cannabis Growers, My name is Dylan and welcome back for week 7 of the Screen of Green Series by GreenBox Grown!  This is a very exciting week for the grow as I will be showing you guys how to build your very own SCROG as well as how to properly hang it above your plants.  In this video I will be covering the building portion of the week and will show you what materials you need as well as how to design a SCROG for optimal results.  To see how this SCROG looks after a few weeks of hanging in the grow room, just visit greenboxgrown.com and go to the videos section.  Alright, now lets get started with the supplies you will need to build your Screen.

Before I get to the supplies, I want to show you the end result so you know what we are going after.  This is what the SCROG will look like when hanging in your grow room and you will want to design yours so there is enough space around the edges to get to the different parts of the tent you need to reach.  It is important to build the SCROG’s a footprint as big as possible with that in mind, as the bigger the screen the bigger the yields you can harvest!  Some people mount their SCROGs to the Grow room, but I am hanging mine in here by string as that was just what happened to work best.  It is more convenient to mount in certain grow rooms and greenhouses.

Alright, now lets get to the supplies needed.  First you’ll need the material for framing the outside of the screen.  In this case I am using wood in the form of 2x2s but you can also use PVC plastic pipes as those work as well.  Next I have the Self tapping Lathe screws for screwing it all together and the brackets for support in the corners of the frame.  Finally I have the string and 1 and 1/4 inch drywall screws for tying the string to.  

I already screwed the frame together using those metal brackets from the last shot, but from this close up you can see all we did was connect the 2x2s together and then screwed them in place through the already cut holes.  The brackets make this whole process very easy and theyadd a lot of strength to the SCROG.  Now I will be adding the Dry Wall screws all the way around the frame for the string to tie around.  I will be putting the screws in the center of each 2x2 and will have them 2 and a half inches apart.

Now you are ready to string up your SCROG.  Start in one of the corners and tie a knot around the corner screw with the nylon or cotton string.   We will be tying the string 1 loupe around each screw for added hold and will be following the up under pattern.  After you tie around the screw, go to the next one over and tie around that.  Then you go to the other end of the SCROG and repeat the process.  Once you get to the other side of the scrog, tie the string off around one of the corner screws and cut it off.  Here’s a quick shot after finishing the stringing going one way.  

Now it is time to do the string going the other way.  We will be following the same exact pattern, except for this time we will be alternating going up and under the other string.  Here’s an example.  I bring the string across the frame from the other side and wrap around both screws like before.  Now that I’ve done that I am ready to go back across to the other side of the SCROG, but now I will alternate going over or under the other string.  They way to determine which way to start is by what you did on the last one when you came over from the other side.  So on the way over hear I finished going under the string, so going back across I will start with going over the string.  

This is important because it will form one cohesive net that holds the branches together and in place.  Now that I have reached the end and have tied going both directions I will wrap the string around both screws here and tie it off.  Make sure to use a tight knot that wont come undone as that can ruin your scrog in a second if it does.  Once that is tied, you are all finished and ready to hang your Screen!

Alright folks, that is the end of Part 1 for Week 7 and I will be back with part 2 very shortly.  In that video I will be covering the addition of a SCROG to my blue dream grow room and How to train the plants through it properly.  If you have any additional questions on how to build a SCROG for your grow room, feel free to contact me directly by texting (831) 601-0853.   I will also be covering the nutrient and watering schedule for the week in that video so everything will be covered!  If you enjoyed this video, please hit the like button and comment below with your feedback!  Also feel free to subscribe to my channel and turn on the notifications for updates on my latest grows.  As always, thank you for watching and until next time…
