    Smile Greenhouse Grow - Moby Dick

    Greenhouse Grow - Moby Dick

    This thread won't be a full and detailed diary. More of a place to post some notes and piccys during the summer months with a couple of plants being grown in the greenhouse. The main plant of interest will be a Dinfem's 'Moby Dick'. Dinafem's notes written about it sound quite good and if it turns out ok I'll be growing it in the next hydro grow in the autumn.

    Baby Moby - hee hee....is now three weeks old and has been living on the window sill when it's been chilly and in the greenhouse when it's been sunny. I love to spoil my girls lol. She is a little strechy and skinny at the moment but the roots had started to show out of the bottom of the pot so yesterday I potted her up into her final large 25 ltr pot.

    Some piccys....










    Growing Medium
    The soil used is 50% normal potting compost and 50% John Innes No3. A really good helping of perlite was added...about 1/2 a bag. She won't need feeding for a while but when she does I'll be using BioCanna's products Vega and Flores and possibly Tomatorite. Apparently Moby Dick's like lots of light and lots of food.

    The Plan
    The plan is to veg her till she is about 3 or 4 feet tall then switch to flowering. I have a nice trolley on which the pot will sit and I can wheel about from the greenhouse into the dark shed and back again. We'll aim to keep her at about 6 feet overall and no more than 3 feet wide as we need to get her through a door. So this girl won't be LST'd...we'll just see how she does naturally.

    Bugs and Things
    Greenhouses are notorious for bugs and creatures so I've the usual remidies for spidermites and black gnats and so on. A good spraying of Neem Oil will be used weekly. It works very well as I've used it on a number of previous occasions.

    I think that's about it for the moment - peace

    Smile Seed manufacturere's notes.....

    Here are Dinafem's...the seed manaufacturer's notes....

    The best known strain in our catalogue, it is also one of the strongest and very typical sativa. Moby Dick has a mild scent when growing but donít be fooled, it has a powerful stone. The combined genetics of Haze and White Widow make the Moby Dick plant quite strong. Moby Dick has a THC concentration of up to 21%. The effects of Moby Dick are incredibly powerful.

    It is the result of crossing the 2 best clones of our Mother Plants, a sativa with an indica. Moby Dick is our most psychoactive strain with a concentration of up to 21% THC and the presence of THCV, a substance present in equatorial sativas produced in response to the sunís ultraviolet rays; this substance makes the effect of the THC stronger, to the point that the effect can be felt after just 2 or 3 puffs. The low CBO concentration helps to make the effect psychoactively intense and lasting; it speeds you up both physically and mentally and the come down is long, slightly physical and noticeable.

    It produces great hunger and thirst, and it is advisable to eat and drink well, to counteract its effects. Due to this increase in appetite, it is recommended to treat the secondary effects of chemotherapy and anorexia. There are 2 main phenotypes for this cross, a dominant sativa which is present in 65% of the plants approximately, and the rest, that are usually smaller and faster.

    The sativa phenotype has a wood, pine, incense aroma, and the indica type is sweeter.

    To develop this strain to its full potential, it needs a lot of light, up to 800 watts per square metre and a very high E.C between 1.5 and 2.00 as this strain needs more feeding than most of the strains.

    It is highly recommended to control the pH as well, making sure it does not exceed 6.5 otherwise it could demonstrate symptoms of iron deficiency in the form of progressive yellowing of the inter-venal spaces on the leaves and wrinkling on the tips of the leaflets. This defiCiency does not really affect the plantís health but it could restrict the harvest if it is really serious.

    Outdoors, full sun, plentiful soil and water and widely spacing the trees 3 m apart will ensure trees which grow to 3 m tall and a harvest of up to 1500 grams in optimal conditions. The flowering period is quite fast indoors (60/70 days), 15th October outdoors with good mould resistance inherited from the sativa parent plant.

    Flowering period: 60-70 days
    Harvest outdoors: From 10th to 25th October
    T.H.C: Very High (16%∑20%)
    C.B.D: Low
    Production: Very High
    Height outdoors: Can reach 3.5 m
    Blend: Sativa-Indica with Sativa dominance
    Genotype: Haze X White Widow

    Peace

    Hi BD, the idea was to veg for about another 6 weeks (roughly mid July) and take it from there as to vegging longer or going onto 12/12. Now looking at your piccy, it's the width of the Beast that is scary. lol. I'll be putting my babe on a nice trolley to wheel about and will need to get her through a normal sized door into the Dark Place each night during flowering. The only thing I can think of at the moment will be to introduce Baby Moby to a nice bit of bondage and tie the side branches closer to the main stem at that time. I guess we will have to see how she develops over the next few weeks. Peace.

    Aha i see, so you need her to grow up instead of out... nothing a bit of pruning and strapping wont sort out. So eventually around middle/end of august you should just be able to leave her where she is and will do her thing naturally. good plan Moonlight just wish i could do the same unfortunately i dont have the space to keep em dark at night plus its a bit of hassle incase you not there or need to go away when she should be put indoors, but if u at home most of the time i shudnt be a problem

    Hi Bitterfly mate. How's everything going. Yes...it's soooooo hard not to grow something isn't it - hee hee. The Delahaze is a really nice smoke....been curing nicely and ever so smooth.

    Smile A mini update....

    A little update with a few piccys of my babies. They're in the greenhouse basking in the sunshine. It's a fraction over 100F in there today and the humidity is around 30%. They've not been given any extra food yet as there will be enough at the moment in the soil.

    The Moby Dick is now starting to take off. I re-potted the other youngsters, a Delahaze and two Flo x Wrecks in slightly larger pots a few days ago. They will stay in there for about two or three more weeks before going into their final pots. These will be about 20 ltr ones filled with a 50/50 mixture of John Innes No3 and normal potting (tubs & hanging basket) compost with lots of perlite added.

    Some wonderful piccys.....

    A nice family piccy....



    Moby Dick has the most beautiful leaves I think I've seen for a long time...



    A Delahaze...pottering along nicely....er....so to speak...



    The two Flo x Wrecks....it would be nice if both turn out to be ladies....




    That's about it for a few days or so...time for a nice cup of tea. Peace.

    Many thanks for looking in guys and for your comments. This blistering sunshine today has had the girls shaking with excitement - lol. The Moby Dick must have put on an inch at least. The forecast for the rest of the week is for much of the same (down south here). Maybe summer's here at long last? Gave all the girls a good drink of water this evening.

    @Leafy...I hear what your saying. I normally start off with small seedling pots for about two or three weeks, then go up to a 3 to 5 ltr pot for about three weeks roughly then to the final pot. This gives me a bit of time to think about things such as whether to lst or not to lst and so on. This time I need to get to the garden centre as I need some more compost and perlite. I'm just about out of both due to the new flower seedlings and vegetables. Peace.

    Smile An update....how wonderful....

    A little update to show how the babes are growing away nicely now. They are now in their final pots. The Moby Dick and Delahaze are in 25 ltr pots while the two Flo x Wrecks are in 15 ltr pots. The soil is a 50/50 mix of John Innes No. 3 and potting compost with lots of perlite added. Just normal tap water has been given during the week. No extra food has been given so far but this may change this week for the two larger ones. A good spraying of Neem Oil Repel was administered a few days ago. The weather during the week has been on the coolish side but the forecast is for more warmer weather during the coming week. Yay...go girls go

    Some piccys. This one shows Moby Dick and her huge leaves. The two on the left are the young Flo x Wrecks



    This is the Delahaze...pottering along nicely....



    I guess that's it for the moment....time for a nice cup of tea
