    Seedstockers Battle 2nd Leg
    Thin Mint Crack Auto
    Day 7
    All looking fine and dandy :d5: considering she was born with half a leaf missing, it hasn't slowed her growth at all:bow: thankfully. I started her on a light nute feed at day 4 and lowered the light to around 15in same time, there's a slight bit of cupping on leaves but apart from that all good :headbang:

    Thin Mint Crack Auto
    Day 28

    No changes to report, looking green and healthy still and still on the same feed as she was from week 1 but drinking a lot more now :coffee: temp has been around 31c and rh 75% and I try to keep the light around 12in from canopy :toke:
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Only changes are I swapped the mh for the hps and changed feed to pre flower, I'll change feed to flower from next feed, I've also started to remove a couple of fan leaves here and there and the temp has been up and down, from 30c to 35c and rh around 75%ish:toke: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Week 6 Update
    Day 42

    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]

    Week 9 Update
    Thin Mint Crack Auto

    Update Week 10

    Thin Mint Crack Auto
    Day 70

    Not looking too bad, slight foxtailing probably due to light being too close, so I had to remove the ratchet hangers and just tied the reflector to the hanging bar which gave me another few inches so hopefully she'll be ok now :thumbsup: Temp is still high, it's been around 36c to 38.8c for the last few days :yoinks: Still no smell though and not as frosty as my other plants, hopefully she's gonna be strong still, fingers crossed :toke:

    Yes Mugwamp is right, code on the 17th so no one is naughty and germs early :smoking:
    All the info is written down (flash card works well, paper what have you) and picture is taken of that with your seeds and germ method (paper towel, direct seed etc.)
    Equatorial, you staying up late or getting up early? It's like a kid at Christmas, great to see the enthusiasm :d5:
    And you can use the same plant in multiple battles so no need to have one for each, saves room! (you can grow as many as ya like tho :smoking:)

    @RivetGrrl

    Kit List

    Tent: Bud Box Pro white 1m x 1m

    Light: Grow Northern Telos 0010 300w LED

    Medium: 70% Canna Coco Pro 30% Perlite, lined with clay pebbles

    Pots: 15 litre circular fabric

    Air Movement: RAM Exhaust and Filter (I'll have to check the specs - sorry) with 2 x RAM Clip on desk fans

    1 x RAM humidifier (with a dehumidifier to be added later)

    Nutes: Great White, GH Trio Series, Plant Magic Magne-Cal, Earth Juice Sugar Peak, and the rest... we'll see. I'll add some sort of additive when the time comes, probably Big Bud or something along those lines.

    I still can't decide between Super Skunk or Fruit Cake but leaning toward the SS as I've seen people reporting the FC to be very unstable. Shame as I was really looking forward to it but maybe not the wisest choice for my first battle.

    Itching to get em going!

    Germination pic:

    Never used these before but I guess they'll do the trick...

    Week Three Update:

    DAY 18


    Transplanted the Super Skunk today into pre-charged coco and perlite mix (around 80/20)

    Looks a little hungry but the feed was also upped today so that shouldn't be much of an issue. I ran out of Great White which i like to use in transplanting but hopefully I can just add it to the feed moving forwards and that'll help.

    Roots looked good, nice healthy ball forming.

    [​IMG]

    Week 4 Super Skunk update - Day 26

    Switched up the nutes for full Shogun coco line. Have been feeding at 50% but she still looks a little hungry still so I've upped it to about 80% now.

    Bent her right over a few days ago. Took her down pretty hard but she seems OK with it and those side lowers are beginning to reach to a similar height to the main. Looks kinda ugly with all the tucking and that big ol' bend but I think I can pretty her up a bit as she stretches. Loving the big indica leaves but could do with a little more spacing. In all honesty I'd have been happy to just let her grow naturally but it seemed a bit boring so over she went!

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Week 5 Update
    DAY 32


    Training seems to have paid off on the Super Skunk and she's developed a nice flat top from which I hope a bounty of stinky flowers will emerge.

    I am loving these Shogun nutes. The leaves look very healthy and no signs of def although I've fed a touch high by the look of it so I'll ease back about 10% or so. It's nothing major so easily sorted. Stems are nice and thick, nothing to complain about at all on this one.

    I've just given her the first dose of Mammoth P. I know it should have been done earlier but I just ordered it as a little payday treat for myself.

    Week 6 Update

    SeedStockers Super Skunk "auto" day 42.

    Been running nutes pretty low but still getting a touch of burn now, I'll dial back for the next few and see how she responds.

    She's a huge plant, lots of potential bud sites etc etc. There's one glaring issue though... no buds! Not even a hint of a bud in fact, just a few pistils here and there, nothing more than you'd expect to see in late veg on a photo.

    Which leads me to believe that this is probably not an auto...

    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    It's a shame, she was shaping up well.

    What do you guys reckon? Definitely not an auto or should give it until day 50 to call it? Not really sure if it's worth growing out under 12/12 as the other plants will be effected and if I were to grow a photo, it wouldn't have been this strain.

    Thanks NiceOption :thumbsup:
    Super Skunk looks like a great choice, I got a friend growing them outdoors this year as they are very hardy. I'm going to grow the FC as I can switch them to 12/12 in another tent if I have to. But I'll probably pick the Critical or Sticky Fingers for the battle gal just in case (unless I get a super nice FC that outperforms the others).

    BTW anyone needing seeds everything is 50% off for 420 on the Seedstockers website!

    Thank you St. Tom :toke:

    Btw you are all free to change you kit list, add anything you are NOT locked into it! I will be changing things all the time. If you could just please edit the info into your update post or let me know so I can do so.
    The reason I am asking is it helps vendors and other growers both to see what you used in your grow, all neat and tidy and there.
