Indoor Grow Teetee does some Dinafem & Dutch Passion goodies with Skyline LEDs

  • Well, we're still working on things and I imagine we'll see some bugs, some breaking, and things that need to get fixed. We'll start on the most critical things first and work our way down. We're still installing add-on's and squaring away some licensing stuff, but feel free to browse the board and we'll update everyone on when things are added, restored, or otherwise changed.

Looking good bro. :pop::coffee::pass:
cheers man, it's still early days, but things are progressing well.

It's day 18, and I thought I should do some leaf tucking, as the new side shoots are getting obscured by the big main fan leaves.

Starting with the Night Queen. Standing at 21cm and 33cm wide. In this first pic, you can see the blue dot leaf is already tucked down, and the red dot leaf is untouched.....

Now when I tuck down the red dot leaf, you can see the new shoots....

day 18 NQ 2.jpg


In this next pic, you can see how the red dot fan leaf is obscuring the new blue dot leaves....

day 18 NQ 3.jpg


so after tucking down the red dot leaf.....

day 18 NQ 4.jpg


I did the same with the White Widow. She's 20cm high and 40cm wide. Blue dot leaves hidden by the red dot fan leaf.....

day 18 WW 1.jpg


.... and after tucking down the red dot and yellow dot fan leaves.....

day 18 WW 2.jpg


The Glueberry wasn't as simple.... she's a lot shorter, and her inter node distance is much smaller than the others. 15cm high and 35cm wide.

I do like a bit of early stretch as it makes watering a bit easier. This Glueberry has leaves that are very close to the surface of the Coco, and it's easy to get them wet during watering. She is very bushy.... a prolific vegger with stocky wide leaves that have short stems, so I need to give her room to spread out and expose all that vigorous growth....

day 18 GB 1.jpg


The red dot fan is obscuring the blue dot leaves..... so after tucking down....

day 18 GB 2.jpg


Now doing this has really pushed those lower leaves down even further, so they are literally laying on the coco.... Also a few of those lower leaves are never gonna see any light, so I will be thinking about cutting a few of those less useful leaves off pretty soon.

The Blue Amnesia is looking lovely and is growing so nicely that I don't have to do any leaf tucking just yet. Her leaves are longer and thinner with longer stems and so has lots of space to let the light in. She's 18cm high and 40cm wide....

After leaf tucking, very soon (and I mean within hours) you can see the plant adapting to it's new shape, the leaves and shoots settle into their new positions and you should see a lot of growth occur over the next few days. I just keep running my fingers through the leaves to make sure nothing is getting caught.

I'm still rotating them a ¼ turn a day, and they are drinking about 4-5 litres of EC 0.9 feed daily... I've started adding Amino Treatment - basically Silicon, and they all have a Skyline 400 each, about 50-70 cm above them.

Hope you're all enjoying the World Cup, all the games are at stupid times like 1am, 4am etc, so I'm looking forward to some late night caning sessions and some bloodshot mornings!

That is amazing I can't believe the size for the age! And how much they are drinking that might be one of my problems haha. I feel your pain trying to water mine some leaves are touching aswell

@912GreenSkell , @hope2grow , @Fatr34 , @otuaflower @Taipan cheers for your comments Guys!

Thanks also to @Spanglish for your rep points.... you must be enjoying the World Cup!

For me the best bit so far was during Iran vs Portugal.....

First the Iran Goalie saves a Ronaldo penalty.... the best moment of his life!
Then deep into extra time... Iran are (eventually) awarded a penalty.... they score!!!!
Cut to a man softly weeping.... tears of absolute joy!

Apart from the football, I've had a difficult few weeks.... blistering headaches and both shoulder rotator cuffs are fucked, so I haven't been giving the girls my full attention.

I must have not fed them for 3 days and then when finally pulled my finger out and watered them, I left them again for 3 days..... the Night Queen wasn't happy and her main cola's new leaves were going yellow at the tips.....

day 28 NQ2.JPG


I wasn't seeing much growth going on with her.... in fact she's looked no different for maybe a week now.

I'm back in the groove again and yesterday I decided to feed her an EC 0.7 feed.... flush out in a way, but with a nice easy nute mix...... she hadn't been drinking much either cos I had loads of run off and her pot was reasonably heavy after 2 loads of 3 days no feeding.

Here she is now on day 28...

day 28 NQ1.JPG


You see how her lower fans have gone yellow as well. Not a happy girl.

This is an issue I seem to get with one plant nearly every grow I do..... last time it was the Pineapple, the time before Cindy Jack.... etc.

I can't work it out.... @Fatr34 mate, there's me giving you advice and it's going on with me as well. I'd like to try and sort this out.... The yellow tips on new growth give leaves that look stripey, or old fan leaves are green in the middle with yellow edges.

It always happens in week 3... a crucial stage as they move up a few gears and go through a big growth spurt.

Was it the infrequent feeding?

When I prepared the reparative EC 0.7 feed yesterday, I noticed the temp of the water was 12°C.... I had made the previous feeds in a hurry (normally I let the water reach room temp before mixing up) and must have given them really cold feeds at least twice with 3 day gaps in between.... shocked roots?

The temp in the tent was between 27° and 31°C.... cold roots and hot temps?

The infrequent feeds I gave were an upgrade from the previous EC0.9 to EC 1.0.... did I lock her out? My last Night Queen was at EC1.1 at this stage.

The others are looking better. The other Dutch Passion dame is the Glueberry OG..... she was very short and bushy, so I have removed a few leaves and she's going well.....

day 28 GB.JPG


The Dinafem's are looking even better.... the Blue Amnesia is very healthy...

day 28 BA.JPG


.... but the White Widow looks like she's gonna be the star of this grow.... she is absolutely perfect and is gonna be another monster....
