iPhone Contest Journal! Weekly Tutorial: The Perfect Coco Coir See below comments. Wow! That’s a great amount of growth , these plants like tripled in size in about a week. Very impressive growth in the coco and with the nutrient feeding schedule so far - genetics are likely part of the quality here so far too. The plant last week was two small starter leaves and now it’s got a full set of fan leaves and working on its 3rd node. Fast! I provide a brief breakdown of my stoned thoughts and highly quality 1080p footage of the plants in my video review. The colours are very rich green, it looks amazingly healthy and is surely off to a great start in week 2. Currently these beauties are under true 200w of COBs(Four CXB3590s). It’s super bright(850ppfd) and I still can add another 300w more(1250ppfd Max) in flower.... The lights are running 24 Hours a day currently to help optimize and maximize growth potential. The COBs really enhance the beauty of these plants, they are almost identical to sunlight spectrum so you get very vivid and sharp colours under them. Makes for great quality pictures! I’ve kept the PH of the nutrient water at 5.8 - this is ideal for coco. GH nutrients are fantastic with my RO water system. I am watering basically every 24-36 hours until I get about 10% run off from the 3gal Fabric pots. Please see the video guide for more information. The primary focus of the current week is going to be starting LST .. I really want these girls to bush out and give me lots of fat juicy colas. I’m going to bend these girls right over, head to toe, just the way I like em.. and then let all those shoots pop up and then tie them down. I’m very impressed with this weeks potential and these plants fully lived up to it ! I can wait to see what these ladies grow into ! Making the Perfect Coco Coir Items Required : Dried Coco Coir brick Course Perlite 5 gallon bucket Pillow case Fabric pots (recommended) CalMag supplement (recommended) PH meter (recommended) First things first , acquire the items above ! I highly recommend getting the suggested materials for this project as it will make your life a lot easier ! You can do this without the “(recommended)” items but it’s not as ideal. 1. Place your coco coir brick into the pillow case. If you can break the brick a bit as well it will make the process go faster in the next steps. 2. Get some good water(distilled or RO is best) and adjust the PH of the water to 5.8 3. (Optional) Add Calmag to your chosen water source, I used 5ml/G of water. Ensure PH is between 5.6-6 PH 4. Place the coco pillowcase inside a 5gallon bucket. Add the PH’d CalMag water. 5. Let this solution soak and absorb the good stuff from the water for about 20 minutes. Add more water if needed, it should be a soupy consistency. 6. Remove the pillowcase from the water and place it in a drainable area. Let the extra water run out for about 20 minutes. 7. Get your Fabric pots and add about 1/3rd volume of Perlite for your size of pot. 8. Place the saturated coco coir in with the perlite. Gradually mix the components together until you get an even mixture and a full pot. 9. You are now ready to use your coco and it is set up for an ideal start - Perfect PH, Extra CalMag and fully saturated ! 10. Check out the watering videos each week to learn about watering and proper nutrients. 11. Add your seed, clone or transplant and place under an appropriate grow light. That’s it everybody! Now you know how to get your Coco Coir off to a perfect start for optimized growth of your cannabis! Tune in next week to learn about the easy LST method to improve yields! Happy Growing! -TheWeedMan

As a first time coco coir grower what are some things to look out for or make sure to do? This is my 3rd growing experience, my previous two grows were done in soil. So I’m not a complete noob. Please provide a good break down on the coco coir growing experience for me.

Dude - no reach out on this? I found it on a browse and I’ve been thinking on a Pure GSC strain for a while now! Both ironic and Sweet! Will follow. Now with respect to coco - IMO it’s not much different from soil but I trust you’ve already seen that it’s got much better drainage properties. The key difference is it’s nutrient holding power in relation to soil as well as appropriate supplementation of the nutrients that soil has, that coco lacks (ie. calmag). As long as you supplement for the first month or so with calmag and keep a close eye out for nutrient burn (go easy/not full strength with nutrient formula for first run) it should be very similar to a soil grow. That’s the best I got for ya. Made the switch to coco myself because I like hand watering but would prefer a slightly faster growth rate. Cheers broski and looking forward to this one growing out!!!👊👍

Your plants look great. The only thing I believe you should improve is training: a more agressive use of LST and super cropping to keep the plant squat. Good luck mate.

What are your thoughts on these plants ? Do you have experience putting the plants in a prolonged dark period for 24-72 hours before harvest? If so, what happened? Does this method improve the quality of the final product ?

hey man, there's a lot of FUD about the dark period, basically the main idea is that there's little you can do in the last 48 hours of a 3 month grow that will do something significant on the grow overall. but the dark period for sure has some benefits, for example a dark period before the chop means less photosynthesis chemicals present for the dry + cure. Second the dark period will boost the creation of terpenes. some say it's good for thc, but trychomes take 2 weeks or more to really make THC, so that"s FUD. second thing is that on planet earth it's almost never dark for two days straight, anything really more than 24H and for sure 48H will start messing with the trychomes and they could oxidise which is bad because you loose that much in potency. Hope this clears this up a bit, good luck ! 🚀

October 17th, 2018. Today is the day Prohibition on Cannabis has ended in Canada. As a Canadian citizen, I can purchase cannabis from the store and legally grow plants in my residence for personal consumption. This is a great day for Canadians and the world ..! I hope the other major countries follow our lead in next few years! 😎

@@@@TheWeedMan, just on the papers in reality its hard to get a description .. or find a doctor that describes... or beeing allowed to grow your own medical.... i dont know any... person who gets medical weed personlly only hearing of them its ha rd and long process for the persons who medically need it the weed is coming from canada, because german medical growers dont exist because of the law. you have to show 2 years of expereience in industrial growing before getting a license for industrial growing.. and so on

Do you prefer the cob over hps? I've seen some awesome yields from growers using cob lighting.

@BeefWellingtons, thanks bro! Even 1 or 2 plants it’s still good.. it’s all about growing your own! Yeah I pretty much got a maxed out 4x4x7 tent. The only other thing I could add would be like CO2 but I don’t think I’m gonna do that. Seems like too much work for a hobby grower.. goodluckin getting the bigger grow area man! 😎👊🏻

Really nice yield and beautiful buds!! As for the bubble hash, if you don't have the washing machine, I'm telling you its grueling work. I only have 1 gallon bags, but even with 5gallon, its gonna suck. Might I suggest you research the dry ice method? It looks like it pulls a lot more out than the bubble hash with ice water. Also, you can use same bags for it. Less work, higher return. Good luck, awesome grow!!

@TheBudWhisperer, should be an interesting experiment! The new COB led lights should also prove interesting ... not many examples out there but from what I’ve read/seen the results have been spectacular ! It’s gonna be 10 Cree CXB3590 COBs (Best COB LEDs) @3500K run at 50w each. Should provide over 1200 PPFD in flowering .. I believe cannabis maxes out at around 1000 PPFD so I could even add on CO2 down the road ..!
