Cannabis Cinderella 99

Cindy 99 Grow Log

Vegetative Cycle

Week 1

Clones were cut and placed into peat moss 1" starter cubes after being dipped in Clonex rooting gel. Clonex rooting gel is great because it provides one of the essential rooting hormones for cannabis plants, IBA (Indole-3-butyric acid). IBA is commonly extracted from willows and maize and has been proven useful in the formation of root tissues on plants. The exact methods of how IBA works is still largely unknown and needs additional research, but it has been used successfully as a cloning hormone for decades by cannabis growers. These clones were then placed under a T5 4'x6 bar lighting system using a light cycle of 18/6 until the plants transition into their flower phase.

Week 2

Clones are being hand fed Clonex rooting solution and R.O. water on a cycle of two feeds and a flush to prevent a nutrient build-up in the grow medium. Currently they are being fed once a day with humidity dome vents being gradually opened up throughout the early period of the clone's life.

Week 3

Clones are ready to be transplanted into netti pots with hydroton clay pebbles. These netti pots will be placed into 3'x3' trays filled with hydroton clay pebbles so that they can be attached to the automatic watering system which floods the tray and then drains. Plants will be given a foliar spray of General Hydroponic's Diamond Nectar which contains humic acids. Humic acids can increase nutrient absorption and can make this process more efficient through the process of mineral chelation. Heavy minerals within the grow medium may not be absorbed by the plants, but humic acids are lightweight and form chemical bonds to allow for better absorption by the plant.

Week 4

During this week, plants will be topped and transitioned into their flowering phase where they will be placed under LEC 315W CMH lighting systems with a light cycle of 12/12. Prior to the transition from veg to flower, these plants will be introduced to amblyseius andersoni or predatory mites introduced into the environment from sachets. Plants also get defoliated before they transition into flower rooms.

Flowering Cycle

Week 1

Now that plants have been transitioned into flower they will be receiving a foliar spray of Cyco potash. Cyco potash plus is a liquid fertilizer by Cyco flower as a part of their Cyco platinum series. It contains both monopotassium phosphate and potassium sulfate which will help increase the vigor of the plant as well as produce larger cannabis buds. I follow the company's product guidelines as use through weeks 1-4 of flower. Plants are being fed twice daily through an automated watering system and then drained. The plants receive nutrient feed six days a week with the seventh day of the week being a flush day using only RO water.

Week 2

By week 2 of flower, plants should have a layer of plastic trellis set at about the bottom of the entire plant canopy. During weeks 2 and 3, the plants will be supercropped or more accurately, the plant's branches will be slightly and gently twisted to loosen the cell wall making the branches malleable. These branches can then be easily weaved through the trellis to expand the plant's canopy before the plant increases rapidly in height. I am careful to avoid bending branches at sharp angles which can stunt plant growth and risks breaking branches. Plants also get skirted during this week or low-hanging branches are removed to shape the plant.

Week 3

Plants have been supercropped and are rapidly expanding upwards towards the light. The LEC 315W CMH lights are about 36" from the plant's canopy and are providing adequate light for five plants per light. Coveralls have been worn inside the grow since day 1 to prevent outside contamination and infestation.

Week 4

Plants are slowing in vertical growth and are producing buds at a more rapid pace. By now the plants are transitioning from early flower into late flower which will require an adjustment in their feeding schedule to provide more potassium to the plants in order to increase yield. Plants will get defoliated by now and will get another defoliation in a couple weeks to increase light deprivation within the canopy.

Week 6

Plants are being defoliated for a second time in flower as there are too many leaves which can cause health issues for the plant. Nitrogen is completely removed from the nutrient feed and potassium is increased again to improve plant size.
