Default Growing in Costa Rica

Hello friends,

I am a MMJ patient from WA State now living in Costa Rica. Three years ago I had the chance of ordering some White Widow and Bubblegum seeds from Europe.

Out of some purple Bubblegum and lanky White Widow came a plant that I"ve kept as a mother. She grows Sativa like and produces nice dark purple buds with red hairs. Smoke reminds sandalwood and frankincense. Effects come after a minute and creep into sharpen senses (eyes and ears very sensitive), stimulation, lust and it beats Viagra. Too much and you get a little anxious and paranoia might set if at the grow room.

Here are pictures of my last run:

Default My corrent project

Since I moved to a new location I had to start from scratch. Now, things a little more presentable and I wish to document my girls progress form early flowering to... smoking a bowl.

Here are some pictures:

Default Whats next?

I will be ordering some Mango Haze and perhaps other strains from Shantibaba. Since I live in a relatively remote location I wish to have some "desert island" genetics for my medical needs.

Until then I will be posting pictures of my current plants.

I work with an umbrella type reflector and 600W HPS , digital ballast and GIB bulbs. My medium is simple Floragard soil.

My room exhausts to the roof via a DIY extractor and low tech odor control.

If this needs to be moved to Strain Base, please do so.

Thanks

So far plants in small pots with just Floragard soil are doing great. I added some 10-30-20 at 800ppm / 6ph to set bud site and did some foliar feeding of 12/60/00 at 400ppm / 7ph. Not at the same time of course. After foliar feeding I re spray plants with just water several hours later to dilute any residue and help plant absorb any "left overs".

Light cycle is 11/13.

As known by many of you, Sativa dominant strains respond nicely to small pots. This also helps control the overall growth which in Sativas tend to be a problem indoors.

Since flowering is significantly longer with Sativas it is essential to ensure long term root health and minimal borg presence.

Small pots will be dry about 48 hours after hand watering which kills any larvae in the upper soil.

Another aspect is to avoid salt build up on the medium. I tackle this by using relatively mild nutrients and giving the plant at 100% run off at each watering.
Easy to do with small pots.

Here in Costa's central valley water is good as it comes from the facet;
Ph is 7 and PPM around 50.

In order to lower Ph to around 6ph I use a fermented lemonade. It is nothing but saving used lemons and place them in a container with water.

I have found that it works extremely well. It also has loads of good bacteria, fungi and nutrients.

Finally, this lemonade tea seems to keep fungus gnats and other root critters away. For thousands of years lemon has been heralded as a natural antiseptic and health tonic.

Hola Poppa!

Thank you for your comments. It is a hack on mine as much as a gift from Mother Nature. This particular plant has been with me (moving from place to place in the form of clone) for almost 2 years.

Very resistant to pests and mold. Considering that humidity stays around 80% here during rainy season.

I wish to find a nice Mango Haze or SSH male for her.

Cannabis in Costa Rica remains very much illegal my friend. If not I wouldn't waist time with Indoor and would just have a green house up by the volcanoes (2300 mts above sea level). That volcanic soil would be a killer!

Excellent well done , certainly work on it some more. What are you hoping to add to it ? What I mean is Increase yeild , add different flavours , shorten flowering time? I'm not a breeder or anything myself just a grower whos interested in the subject. It seems the more experience of growing I have it just takes me deeper, which I love. I'm sunk into Marijuana Botany An Advanced Study by RC Clarke such a good book on the subject, which I've attached as a pdf for you.

That volcanic soil would be nice I'm sure for em , do a guerilla grow and find an spot that no-one goes. A good trick is to put 5 note on a stick(or whatever the currency is where you are) if its still there in a year when you go back to plant its a good spot

Happy growin ojorojo
