    Alright Viz.

    I've just read this diary through from the start.

    Very informative, lots of good info and I can't say I'm the least bit surprised at the crackers you've got going on in there.

    Fair play mate. Thumbs up.

    CDM's certainly performing too. Hopefully I'll be able to replicate that with my DWC grow. Feeling a bit daunted at the moment I've got to say.

    Thanks JB. Yeah CDM are good for my way of growing that is for sure. You will kick arse with the DWC method no two ways about it mate. The folks here on THCtalk have your back.

    In a few weeks I will be able to tell the difference between smoking a coco grown herb or a mud grown smoke.

    Thanks for that Jkr yeah the girls are going well. They have grown so much in the last few days too. The Dutchy grow girls are now bigger and taller than the Durban Poison. Am very hopeful of a good harvest if I don't fuck it up in the final furlong.

    Looking good so far chief.

    Got to say at the minute I've got to side with the mud larks. It's just easy, but then again most people I see who grow in coco make it look as easy.

    Burns my arse to say this, but it is easier with coco once you get it dialled in. I only have to calibrate my Ph pen once a month, I have my feeds worked out now for how the plants like it. My Ph issues seems to be a thing of the past. So with the system I am using, and only have to make up feed once every five days. Running two reservoirs due to plants being at different stages. So less work than with soil to date.

    Update time.

    So my tent is rammed. Not much room anywhere for any more lateral growth. The Durban Poison plants are stunning and man I am impressed with Dutch Passion seeds. Both plants are practically identical and the one in front is even taller than her older sister. The one downside with plants this size in my size tent is that taking photo's is getting rather difficult as the plants are now taller than the tent flap. I have had to remove the platform above the drainage system as I said earlier due to them growing so much.

    Well here is the younger of the two Durban Poison plants. You can see how she has squished up against the side wall of the tent but as much as I would love to give her room to grow there is just none to be had.





    She is about six inches taller than her elder sister, who is tucked away top right hand corner. All I can manage to get are images of her top canopy and the cola's that she is fattening up.





    The images do not really do justice to the size of the cola's but there was no way I could introduce a coke can or similar to provide perspective. It is hard enough just getting the phone over her sibling and hope for a shot in focus.




    THC Auto Bomb is packing on the bud. Again it is very hard to get as shot of her due to the bushes in the front of the tent. Not complaining just saying. If she produces cola's in proportion to my Pepsi Challange entry, same strain, then I am in for a massive harvest. Lovely smoke, puts me flat on my back within minutes.




    This is the only shot I could get of the canopy of the plant and her cola's. Not what I wanted but hey ho. She is also packing on the bud. THC Auto is three weeks younger than the first Durban Poison and the same age as the second one.






    And finally the whole tent shot. I think it gives you an idea of the challenges I am facing and why I say that from now on only four plants in my tent.




    Temp range: 18'C - 24'C lights on.
    Rh 44% lights on - 56% lights off

    Feed schedule.

    Ph range 5.5 to 6.2
    EC base 0.3
    Canna A and B
    Hammerhead 4/10
    Raw Amino
    Rhyzo


    EC feed is 1.1


    Over all I am enjoying the coco experience thus far. I have had to rethink a few things, such as plants needing different feeds during different stages and as a result am now running two dripper systems. Thanks to Bulls for the parts list. 100 litres of feed is made up ever five days and so far so good.


    Thanks for stopping by and having a look.

    I have no experience with coco, but from the outside it appears very daunting. Chasing ph and ec, the wet/dry cycle and the complexity of the feed. Or at least it looks complex... like I said once you know what your doing it looks easy and as you've said is easy. I might try it at some point.

    Timbo at first I found it a bit clumsy, but once I worked out my method that worked for me it was plain sailing mate. Seriously with a cheap and simple dripper system it is almost no work at all.

    Fan was a bit of a bodge job, just needed airflow and did not have the time to fiddle. Will try to take the base off and sort out air flow when I get a spare hour or so to actually spend with the girls and the tent.

    Hammer head from week 3. PK 12/13 first two weeks yes.

    Looking good mate , how do you warm your room ? I'm always struggling with lights out temps especially with extraction running at half speed all the time. Seem to be dictated to by the outside temps. Coming along well matey

    Cheers for that Cam, yeah things are good both at home and in the tent. Just a tad over crowded.

    Will take all the luck I can get mate, a grow is only done and dusted when you smoke the herb. Until that point all to many things can cause you grief.

    I use a £12 2Kw electric heater now, and the heater is wired to my Evolution controller. Keeps my range of temps between 23'C and 18'C.


    **********

    Short update. I have introduced a 16l dehumidifier into the grow tent. Rh was creeping up due to the amount of transpiration that the girls are doing. Have it now set for 45% and so far so good.

    Looking good viz my man .

    Just a little word of caution for meter calbration , i swore i read that you did it once a month ? I do mine every couple days , just to make sure , temps also play a very large roll in ph and ec meter calibration viz , make sure you get exact temps of those calibration buffers before you adjust , a few degrees off can fuck things up royally ,especially in a fine tuned outfit like coco .
