Round two. Zkittlez autos

  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

So with more research and with growing one of these zkittlez round 1 I found that this is a very nute hungry plant. I am planning on starting feed about a week and a half to two weeks in at 1/4 strength and somewhat quickly work my way up to half strength over a week or so. If they are handling that well I'm going to attempt to go to 3/4 or full strength, as these girls showed def really fast when I fed them the same feed mix as my widows last grow. They are definitely nute hungry little girls and I hope with the same strain going I can adjust my nute levels to be spot on for these girls. First time running mega or any powdered all in one nute before so I know it will take a learning curve. My cal-mag has nitrogen already so I will have to see how that reacts with the megacrop to see if I need to just add oyster shell flour for calcium, oyster shells are pure calcium carbonate, and Epsom salts for mag. We will see but I have both so I'm not too worried.
Honestly my plants have only had cal mag added 2 times. I also found that my Tangerine Dream loved the nutrients as well and found myself giving her 6 grams per gallon in no time. I would keep the sweet candy at 1-2 grams per gallon. I waited until strech was over before adding any bud explosion and then only 1-2 grams per gallon sometimes 3

I think it will! Although its not the best at any one thing mc seems to be good at a lot.
It doesnt hurt my feelings one bit to not be buying 9 different things to mix, at 30 bux a bag.
My limit is about 5, mc and bud explosion, calmag, hydroguard and recharge. Anymore than that and my head hurts lol
Going to see how this measuring by weight thing goes. Seems simple enough and I might just measure out like one gram or two gram measures and store them in like sauce cups with lids. Will help speed the process because I feel like scaling out every time might be kind of a pain lol

So 3/3 germ for the zkittlez so far. Just popped their root tails. Following same pattern as last grow. Half a day in whiskey jar and one day in paper towel and already off to the races. I'll let tail get to about 1/2 or 3/4 in before planting into the 5 gal bags. Last round these popped from soil the very next day when I followed this route so I'm going to stick to it. That's 5/5 germ for Seedsman seeds so far for those that are interested. I have only run their auto versions, but so far the seeds are decent and have been reliable. I am going to switch to some more reputable seed companies next grow and see if I can work with some good genetics that I know come from a place that cares. Well I'll post up the photos when I get the girls planted up. Til then... :pass:

I did order right at prep time though. Would be smart to order in an off season as they are a huge distributor

Lol do it. They are authorized to just make you happy by sending seeds if you complain. That's about their motto if you purchased seeds haha
