Gday fellas, and m’ladies. I grow weed, you grow weed, we all grow weed and thats why we are here. Ive recently started listening to old mates podcast and its good, ive learned some stuff and had ive had some of my own theories validated and some of them shot to pieces. I work in horticulte and have always had a passion for growing, ive built all sort of gardens, cottage gardens, tropical, formal, cactus gardens etc. Ive also had mutliple 5k+ bonsai trees over the past 20 years including black pines, junipers, port jackson figs, swamp cypress etc. I have a lot of indoor house plants, some would say i have too many but those people are wrong and deserve a swift kick up the ass.
So i have a little stealth indoor perpetual grow. Veg tent is 50cm x 90cms and flower is 60x120 or for you degenerates that insist on using the imperial system thats a 2x4 foot tent.
Being a perpetual grow ive always got plants in different stages. Currently im about a week or so from harvesting some blue gelato 41 and then some gorillaz zskittlez will be next.
Flower tent: sp3000, autopots with airstones, gh 3 part plus some extra microbes, silica, calmag. Co2 comes from me.being a sweaty nerd… the lung room is also my gaming room and im a sweaty little nerd so i get that co2 up to 1500 before ive even warmed up my wrists. And when im not gaming ill burn a couple tealight candles in the room which will get around 800ppm which is better then any mushroom bags ive tried. When i upgrade to a 4x4 ill do a proper co2 setup with bottled co2 but for now my stinky breath will do the job.
I train my plants hard, i abuse them, i call them useless cunts while flipping them the bird, i make them watch videos of weed plants being harvested… and they love me for it. But seriously, weed is the most hardy plant on the planet and it loves the abuse. I mainline my plants and when i do it split the stems so they are easier to work with, it does not hurt the plant… i actually wouldnt be surpised if its possible to split a stem the whole way to the roots and end up with two seperate plants, ill try it next time i take cuttings. When i mainline for a 2x4 ill either run two plants both 16 colas, or ill run three plants that have 8 each. I never end up using all the branches, every time you trim youll end up with a weak branch, that beta branch gets the axe. I scrog with a wire scrog, i want my branches to stay put. I use bonsai wire to make any minor adjustments in order to create a flat canopy, bonsai wire is the best for this job i know youve been using garden ties or something but thats only because youve never had bonsai wire, get some, its super.handy just to have around the house and one roll will literally last a life time because you can straighten it out and keep on using it.
Just realised i dont have any pics of the veg tent so ill grab some later.
