    :kiss:<-- (her real face)

    Hi all,

    I have just germed 2x World of Seeds' Pakistani Valley 100% Indica, Fem, Photo seeds and will gladly do a side by side grow using Optic Foliar Transport/Watts/Rev concentrates as per instructions, basically 'Overgrow' without the Atak.

    Medium will be a soil with some perlite, sphagnum moss, diatomaceous earth and maybe some worm casings'

    Nutes will be GoGo Juice and Charlie Carp (same kinda stuff as seasol, maxicrop etc) and maybe some bloom boosters when in flower, TBA

    Light schedule will be 18/6 to begin under 600w MH in 1mx1mx2m but as I have other projects in my space mrs f6 may train them for outside as we are in 12/12 season now (just a bit cold still)

    Here are our victims :jump:
    WP_20160922_19_20_38_Rich.jpg


    Let me know what parameters everyone would like to be updated on and I will try to run a pro review thread, mrs f6 is the green thumb but we will follow Optic Foliars wisdom.

    Plants will be potted up in the next few days.

    mr & mrs f6

    :toke: :smokeout: Hi guys! Thanks for hangin' your test hats here with the OF trio- :headbang: ... have you tried them before? Our Budelee has used them to fine affect already, and is who brought OF to our attention... We're still working on the official test crew and protocol, so you folks can run this any way you please! I'm just happy to have more folks come on board- :thumbsup: I believe IamPepe is going to run a side-by-side treated/untreated grow as well, so it sounds like you'll be doing the same, basically...good to have some company already! :woohoo1: ...I'm finishing up a couple girls now, and will join the fun shortly,...
    :biggrin: Nice strain choice! One of our former Admin. has grown her before, and liked it better than the Afghani Kush variant,... WoS has lots of fine strains; sometime, try the Wild Thai Ryder, and Sweet Coffee Ryder- :drool: -- excellent stuff, unique aromatics, and the WTR in particular is very potent!
    ... :eyebrows: I see high quality New Zealand long fiber sphagnum moss-? You folks grow orchids too by any chance? I've not heard of it being used as a soil component...interesting,...

    :goodluck: :hump: :goodluck: here's a slap to the cheeks to get off the line fast! :slap:

    Thanks Waira!

    I've already used OF on my aquaponics test, plant got a bit beaten up as the system was being constructed while growing..

    These seeds were freebies but seemed like a good choice as indica have nice fat leaves so should be able to see the OF going to work nicely!

    Sphagnum moss lowers ph so I'm adding some in, the plants will get some fish water the entire grow and it hovers around 7, the sphagnum helps keep it a bit lower (the Charlie carp and go go juice lower it aswel)

    not much to see yet of course

    potted up and first spray of our test subject in the foreground

    18/6 light schedule, 600w MH, spraying OF every Sun, Tue, Fridays, feeding half strength Charlie Carp & GoGo Juice + fish water between spraying (or when needed)

    pretty lucky these 2 are almost identical, our OF subject is the smaller, everything else is the same of course.

    :amazon: Solid start Fett's! :d5: ... tell me more about the feeds CC and GoGo, and the fish water... is this direct from the fish tank itself-- still loaded with all the "goodies"? :eyebrows: Serious poop tea there! :rofl:

    yeah, fish water full of nitrate, all immediately available to the plant.

    Charlie carp and go go juice are just brewed microorganism ferts, to be honest don't know much about them, I guess they are just the same as maxicrop etc, might get some bio diesel, am limited as to what I can put in the fish tank :/

    I have some GHE BioSevia Bloom and the bacteria it needs on the way, this I will use in my bio filer and fish tank. It will also work in soil so our girls will get some also.

    one of the reasons I am using sphagnum moss is to get some bacteria living in the root zone of my dwc system, having some difficulty getting nutes up to the flowering plant, (won't be an issue with soil of course)

    man.. They are going crackalakin already :)

    time to feed em up good!

    /runs off and researches additives!

    moved test subject to the rear
    WP_20161001_15_18_12_Rich.jpg
    no OF
    WP_20161001_15_18_07_Rich.jpg
    OF test

    seems to be no issue, maybe it wasn't so bad, seemed like it bent 90 degrees at the time!

    they are doing great! The one in the bottle is the same age!
