OGDs Lone Star Blue Heaven grow

Post  LabFlower on Fri 28 Jan 2011, 8:05 pm

Started 4 of OGDs Lone Star Blue Heaven beans. All split and popped out of the dirt just fine.

I labeled the pics as 7 days up but they are really only 6. All medicated and my math was off. lol!

The one little one is lucky to have survived. I left them soaking a couple of days longer than needed and one seed fell apart in two but is growing OK except for size.







They are growing in ProMix w Advanced Nutrients 3 part hydro nutes, Dash of silica, epsom salts and Thrive Alive.

Basking under a 105W 5000K CFL I picked up a few weeks ago. They seem to like it.

I haven't decided whether to grow them in pots or start a DWC tub and see how well they rock in that.

Harder to deal with any males in the tub tho so I'll likely go with pots and do some breeding.



They're on their way!

I re-potted the babies in tall 4" pots filled with a blend of organic soil, sheep manure and other bits like bone meal, ground egg shells, diatomaceous earth and a dash of PyroClay. Watered in good with dugout water for those important micro-organisms and shot of Thrive Alive. I thought it might be too hot a mix for 12 day old plants but they look real happy today about 16 hours after the transplant.





Grow Babies Grow!

Here's the babies at 20 days and looking VERY nice if I do say so and I do.

Thanks OGD for the great genetics!

I think they might be suffering a little nute burn. You can't see it so much in the pics but the ends of the big leaves are a little brown. As it hasn't spread to the leaf margins I'm gonna just let-em-grow!







The other two.





Nice f'n plants in my opinion. Thanks again OGD!

27 days and the babies are looking great. I'm really liking these plants. Sturdy stems, bushy with tight nodes and lots of side branching going on.

A group shot. The pole in the middle is a lab stand that holds up the top end of my 105W CFL to keep the strain off the socket end.



One of the babies, side view.



Two of them, top view.



The other two, same view.



I'm seeing a bit of nute burn going on with one of them but not enough to make me flush yet.
If it doesn't get any worse I'll leave them be as they seem to like to eat!

Time for an overdue update I guess.

These girls have been vegging for 62 days now and are getting re-potted soon. All three are going into one rectangular pail about 5 gal in capacity for easy of watering in case I'm out of town for work for lengthy periods and the wife has to water them. They are 21" tall and two have been FIMed. The third wasn't as it's shorter but catching up. The male will soon be killed as one of the male clones will be raised for pollen to get some seeds from lower buds on the best girl.

Group Shot.



Tops




Close up of the FIMed girl I did a couple of weeks ago.



A pic of the new growth starting on my KaliMist/NorthernLights #5 cross that are revegging. I want to clone this girl for a mother as it's one of the nicest strains I've smoked in a long time. A chunk of this in my water pipe burns like hash and gets me to my happy place with one hit. The Kali by itself would give me heart palpitations and anxiety with just a couple of hits that would fade after about 15 min. I crossed it with the NL#5 and am very pleased with the outcome. She's a keeper!



That's it for now.

A long overdue update finally.

I didn't plan to veg these girls so long but they are 4 months old now.

I gave them a good feeding of flower nutes with added Big Bud, epsom salts and calcium nitrate a couple of days ago and they start 12/12 today.

The biggest girl is 41" tall now. They all grew about 6" more since being moved to 3 gallon pots. That's a meter stick behind the plants not a yard stick so it's 39.5" tall standing on top of the soil of the middle pot.




The clones I put in a DWC tub have almost caught up to the girls in the pots and will be flowering along with them.



I hope these puppies don't stretch too much but I can just hang a bare bulb with the plants around it if they get too tall.

A couple more clones will be taken off each to make sure I keep the best one for a mom. The Kali/NL5 re-veg clones are doing alright but haven't rooted yet after 4 or 5 days


That's all for now.

Day 21 @ 11/13

Post  LabFlower on Sun 12 Jun 2011, 2:31 pm

21 days flowering now and popcorn buds all over the place.





The same plant from above.




One of the others.




The whole lot of them. The DWC tub stretched way more than the
potted ones and mostly caught up in height tho much scrawnier.



That's it for now!

Starting to bud up nice at 26 days. Lots of frost starting too. Very different smells from the three different plants. All nice and fruity tho!




One of many such branches. I can hardly wait!

I took a few pics tonight and only one stood out.

This bud is but one of many but just look at the frost on this girl at 37 days.

UnFuckingReal!

The others are pretty good too but this is a prime example of what I got now.




Nice job OGD!
