Default Bigreds Early skunk x haze first grow

So I thought I'd do a grow diary of my first grow.

Ordered a pack of Early skunk back in December, planted 9 seeds on 13th Feb, all sprouted. Actually got 2 sets of twins, so in effect I had 11 seedlings.

Due to some personal stuff, I got off to a very rocky start. Plants were rootbound in their first pots, where they stayed for four weeks. They were also being watered with tap water at PH 8.4, not very good for them also. Plus when I got kicked out of the Red household, they were in darkness for three days.

When I got the keys to my new digs, I immediately got them re-potted into 11 litre pots, and they are in Plagron royalty mix, so no need for any nutes except for some Hesi super Vit and Powerzyme.

There they stayed for another few weeks under a 600 watt bulb. I put the wrong bulb in for a week, but since then they have been basking under a Mh.

Started seeing pre-flowers just over a fortnight ago, waited until a week ago and pulled all the male looking ones. So I was left with 4 ladies. Topped and trimmed and repotted them into 18 litre pots, was going to veg them another couple of weeks, looking to get a good few cuts to run outdoors.

Then while I over gathering some more of my belongings from Mrs Red, I remembered to get my seeds from the fridge, and there it was. Early Pearl Skunk x Haze. But I ordered Early Skunk. Right what to do now? Thats the outdoor project out the window, they would never get close to finishing here.

So on the 1st April they got flipped to 12/12, I'm keeping the Mh on them for the first couple of weeks to try to keep the stretch limited. Still not fed them, will wait until I see signs that they are hungry.

Time for pictures, and any advice will be greatly appreciated, Thank you for your time.

That was the scene when they were re-potted, was actually going to ditch them but thought I'd give them some time and see if they recovered.





That was a week after re-pot, so I guess it was a good idea to keep going.

One of the twins was male and the other was female. Unfortunately one of the female twins didn't make it after I separated them, the other was a runt and it was going to get binned also.

Glad I kept it, as it has got to be my favourite out of all the plants, it's stalk is so sturdy and the nodes are nice and tight, although it does look very different to the others with its broad leaf structure, Indica leaning maybe.


Some pictures of the others;

Now that they have been flipped, their reaching for the light, and bud sites are really starting to appear.
