Hey y'all & welcome! This is my first grow & first grow journal. It's also up on another forum, but there's not much traffic so I haven't gotten as much insight into my grow as I'd like... so I'll be posting here as well. I'm running a perpetual grow with 27 strains atm in several 10'x5'x6.5' grow tents & a 3 car garage, but I'll be dropping several strains over time to make room for my breeding program. I've been using Vipar Spectra 1200w LEDs, however, I've recently decided to upgrade to Morsen Max12 3600w COB lights. Also testing out the REMO nutrient line for this soil grow. This is going to be a long journal so buckle in, smoke multiple blunts, & enjoy the ride. All haters/lovers/etc. welcome!

In comparison, the clones that I've bought are all growing pretty uniform (14"-16"). I think this is due to the genetics, but possibly due to my growing skills (or lack thereof). Anyways, the new seeds I ordered awhile back were from some reputable breeders so we'll see how they grow in comparison. Indica Dominant Strains - Pretty uneven growth, but I believe this is due to the genetics since I've been feeding them the same nutrients with the same frequency. The other possibility is that the garage wasn't a great environment for the plants & some of the plants on the edges didn't get adequate lighting. Top View - Northern Lights & Blue Dream - Pretty uneven growth, but I'm hoping with the CO2 & new growing environment the shorties will grow a bit faster. Northern Lights - Mother: This is the original Northern Lights plant that I was considering for a Mother candidate & is now the official NL Mother I'll use for clones (a few more weeks before I can take cuttings)! She's continued to surpass the other NL plants (all plants really) in height (22"), bushiness, new growth sites, thickness, recovery from FIM/nutrient problems, etc. That said, it's showing more Sativa phenotypes (seen in the long thin leaves & height) compared to her sisters. NL Mother Sativa Leaves - As you can see the leaves are large & thin with 11 leaf tips, which are characteristics of a Sativa. Overview of Clones: All of these clones have been growing quite uniform even though there are 8 strains in this tent. While the Indica strains (shown above) suffered from mild nutrient burn, these girls were perfectly healthy & I haven't run into any issues so far. These girls are all ~14"-16" tall with the exception of the Dream Queen (aka Green Crack) in the corner right which is ~22" tall. New Strains Germinating: I popped these seeds into Rapid Rooters on 11/2/17 & they're growing steadily. I'll be transplanting them shortly. The top portion of the picture without sprouted seeds are 420 Carat & Lost Coast OG from Emerald Triangle Seeds. I had issues with 420 Carat seeds before so I won't be using that seed bank again & the Lost Coast OG I think are either old seeds or duds. Still 0/12 on the Lost Coast OG is pretty awful... Any suggestions or tips for dealing with old seeds? I don't think I'll be buying Emerald Triangle Seeds again after this, but it could also be the seed bank problem. Anyways, don't want to chance it since I spent $125 on those seeds.
