Blimburn Seeds

Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Neutral

This is my first grow and this strain was a pleasure to grow. Not incredibly leafy so it wasn’t hard to keep on top of defoliation. Looks, smells and grew exactly as advertised by Blimburn. I’d definitely grow this again!

Nutrients

The plants initially didn’t seem to take well to full dosage so I used about half the recommended dosage all of the way through. Half-dosage seems to be a pretty popular recommendation online and I’m happy with the results. Next time I think I’ll try an organic approach with the nutrients. I’d use these again.

Lights

Awesome product and service!!

Tents

Worked as expected. A few tiny pin holes found around the zipper and in the middle of some panels/walls but not a big deal for me.

Commented by Jimmysmith Jimmysmith

This was my first grow and I really appreciate the community support at Growdiaries.com! I learned a lot from this site and diaries. The ounce/watt per plant isn’t correct. I grew 2 others plants along with this one but didn’t keep a diary on the other 2. One of the others was a white widow and dried to 2.2oz. The other plant is still growing. I decided not to add all three plants to this diary as grow diaries had some type of contest when I started where I could have won something if my diary only contained one strain. Overall, I enjoyed this grow and enjoyed updating this diary for myself and the community. I hope others find it useful!

Grow Questions
Jimmysmith week 2 started grow question 1 year ago
Nutrient burn?
The leaves on my two plants are starting to show signs of burning. Is this nutrient burn? I have no added nutrients yet but I am using Happy Frog soil. I’ve raised my lights from 24 to 28” in case it’s light burn. What are your thoughts and recommendations?

Leaves. Edges burnt

As soon as I saw the name "Happy Frog" I kinda knew what I was going to see. Happy Frog, just like Ocean Forest is heavily amended soil, especially with extra Nitrogen. These soils can be very hard to gauge as we don't really know what it's lacking or what it has an abundance of... So, ya, your thinking that it must have come from the soil, is my thinking too. Heavily amended soil, especially on seedlings, can cause havoc. I know this because I used Fox Farms Ocean Forest for my first grow and it was a constant battle.

Firstly, I would continue to feed balanced distilled at 6.3-6.4 to even out the soil pH imbalance. That Nitrogen is probably locking out some essential nutrients that she's trying to pull, right now. I can only wish you luck that everything will be ok and that she will grow out of this condition. In future, and what I have moved to, is to use neutral soils. Non-amended soils that have all the good makings of a good media without the extra goodies thrown in. When you move from the solo's to a bigger pot, I suggest dropping the Happy Frog (I know you paid good money for it, but it may not be worth the hassle). When I did my final pot up in my first grow, from 3 to 5 gallon, I said screw the Ocean Forest and went for Dutch Treat potting soil to finish it off, and damn near all my problems went away. I still have a bag and a half of Ocean that I will not be using...ever again.

Nutrient amended soils are attractive but in my personal opinion, just aren't worth the trouble when/if something goes sideways. Hope this helped my friend and happy trails. Good luck with the girl in the coming days and I hope all will be well. Cheers!:wink::+1:
