medicine man bc medical marijuana grow op

i call this type of set up "the feng shui: zen garden", my other medical hydro system (posted under medical grow rooms post) is called the feng shui:waterfall garden". the room is roughly 20 feet by 20 feet. each bucket gets about 18 inches of space. a central air conditioner sits outside with the fan and cooler in the room on the cieling. a 8 burner co2 generator will also be utilized. the room will be fully enclosed in my popularised "perfect broom" whom "master growers" and shop owners still tell me plants will die without intake out take fans. little do they know who they are trying to reason with. each bucket recieves a 1/4 inch spegehtti tube connected to a hole in the basket and a 1/2 inch Mainline from the nutient resovoir. at the base of the basket there is a 3/4 inch thruhull fitting connected to a 3/4 inch low pressure hose drain back to the nutients resovoir. this allows each bucket to maintain a 1 inch mini res in each bucket, in case of power or pump failure, the plants will stay alive at least 24-48 hours before dieing, unlike nft which if there is a failure , plants can parish in hours. stay tuned for more of my own mm grow op.

how to make the best mamas ( the most important step you will ever make)

this med-man master kush will provide more then enough pollen for crossing and storage for later. this male plant reeks!!!!! thank you adam of th seeds:) this strain is by far one of the best medicines i and my coharts have had a chance to experience.
the 2 large plants in the back are ricky simson aka bc diesel. named after one of canadas only "real" freedom fighters, ricky simpson has cured hundreds of canadians from every kind of cancer with his own hemp oil grown in his back yard on the east coast of canada. watch his video "run from the cure" on you tube for all his natural healing info and story. go ricky!!!!

these are moms or cuttings from moms used over the last year. here stand the 3rd breeding cycle. there is ricky simpsons aka bc deisel, pure la kush, pure purple kush, pain killer, purple pain killer, mk ultra, white boy, white widow, island sweet skunk, green giants, afgahni kush, kryptonite, afgooey and pepe le pue. all of these outrages lines will now be crossed with the super mk ultra, imagine the crosses which will be created!!!

this is a med-man master kush, not needed for the mother room, is placed outside with all my old moms in mid summer to cross pollinate all the other supermom genetics in the great outdoors the way nature intended. the pollen may also be stored indefinitely for future breeding. this specimens genetics are meant to be kept alive, it actaully smells stronger then the med-man master kush kept inside, its also twice as big which is normal for male plants.

this is a beautiful med-man master kush, superior to her sisters and brothers, this is the plant you want to keep for clone production. its dense internodes, compact growth, dark green leaves and extreme aroma(over the rest respectfully) make it a champion mother specimen. sitting next to it is an orange crush "keeper" female as well, if you can see how compact and vigorus she looks too. below too the left are 10 of the soon to be legendary c99 seedlings awaiting more firm culling from the author.

once your strain "comes of age" they should automatically show sex at the intersection of a side branch/leaf stem/mainstock. females show a tiny "raindrop" flower with 1 or 2 white hairs coming out of its apex(top). forcing flowering or increase vegitive dark periods will also force plants to show sex if you are in a rush. discard the males or keep 1 if you can for breeding, which is what i do with my mother cycling:) keep the healthiest,most vigorus, stinkiest, sturdiest female and flower or throw away or breed the plants which dont qualify for your mother space.

step 5- when the seedlings are vigorus and pop thru the bottoms of pucks, transplant them into the medium best suited for your situation, in this case, my favorite 3" stonewool cubes with holes fit the pucks perfectly. the 5 far right are the med-man master kush, the 3 in the middle are the g13 crosses and the 3 on the left are cali orange:) they will need stronger light and 1/2 strength fertilizer now. i like these cubes because plants can easily be grown up to 24 inches if properly maintained. its best to use just enough grow medium at every stage of growth because you never know which plants will make it to the final mother room. ei- dont start 100 seeds in 100 20 gal containers. its baby steps with seeds or you are wasting, time/money and work. all my med-man master kush have sprouted and grown equaly with vigor, so when they start growing, they all made it to the 3".

step 4- once seeds crack thru the shell, i like using 100% organic and eco freindly coco coir pellets(pucks) to sprout the little seedlings. soak the pellets in 1 litre water, 3ml b-52, 2ml hyox, 85 degrees F, ph 6.0-7.0. all 5 mk ultra( at the back of this tray) cracked within 24 hours and were placed tap root down into the coco pucks about 1/2 an inch beneath the surface. other great mediums to sprout seeds are peat pucks and sunshine mix/pro mix. within 48 hrs of soaking the seeds , all popped through the pucks to meet the light and start growing. master tip- alot of seeds suffocate themselves sprouting 2 ways: 1-the seeds are too hard to crack 2- a layer of "skin" or the embryonic sack that holds the plant in the seed doesnt come off with the shell and stunts or kills the seedling. to resolve this matter , remove shell and "skin" once they break the surface to give them the advantage they need to survive. the g13 diesel and gigabud sprouted another 12 hours later:) the 3 other seedlings are cali orange:)

step 3- germination- in 1 litre of water, add 2ml of 30% hydrogen peroxide and 3 ml pf b-52.
place seeds in the solution and place in a warmer area ie- above a fridge, on a heat mat etc... here are my 5 coveted med-man master kush seeds they should start cracking in 12-72 hrs, depending on variety and freshness.

step 2- getting the seed-. seeds are legal in canada, but i prefer to buy direct from the breeder if possible for these reasons: its cheaper, they send you free stuff, the seeds will be the freshest, the genes are guaranteed, the mail is the safest form of deliver. if mail order doesnt work for you and you live in bc, go to vancouver seeds bank or kind seed co for some of canadas and hollands best varieties. pictured below are 1 g13 diesel, 1 g13 gigabud, 1 g13 purple lady and 2 g13 quicksilver.

step 1- finding the genes- research as much as you can thru photos books, seeds banks, the web and personal stories from growers to find the seed that best suites your needs. all masters will usually go to amsterdam because you can smoke the bud, see the plant growing and talk to the breeders who designed the gene line. taste, high, look, smell, medical quality, price, quality, flowering time, height, your grow space and resources will all help you determine your choice.maple ridge kush is one of my top ten strains( and all other smokers i know) due to the fact that no matter how much you smoke you cannot get immune, the high is a heavy head and body stone, it smells like a skunks ass and tastes like the canadian tundra( pine cones). a truely medical miracle. on the streets outside of the medical community, this strain fetches 250-300 and ounce, for a reason, and thats in canada, the indoor bud capital of the world:)

white widow/ afgoo and bcgc with bcnl's producer

these bud capital green crack are realy starting to form their dense, squat and girthy buds. they've been staked to prevent any leaning in on others space because of their heavy tops. im very stoked on the progress been made with dirt in the producers. its more work and dirty, but the product will be sweet soil grown goodness, with no muck ups on the rookies behalf. soon ill shall start a 100% organic dirt producer with more f-1 hybrids from bud capital medical marijuana seeds.
these afgoo's are gona be done about 3-7 days before the bcgc it seems. giving plants a little extra time adds wieght, extra sweet smell and taste, and extra flushing

so here they are the day he starts flushing, i think day 30 or so. both varieties finish in 40-50 days max, and ive always notice jump in yield and better smell and taste if flushed for at least 2 full weeks beforw harvest. both plants just started showing hair browning, which is a good indicator in soil to start cleansing. all nugs even at the bottom are becoming thick and sticky. this is crocks first time even seeing plants in person, so t-5 were left out of this project. i beleive my diagnosis for next crop is 45 plants(9 by 5) and 4 t-5 sunblasters.

the bud capital afgoo exhibits a 100% indica next to its hybrid neighbours, staying shorter and thicker.

the bud capital green crack show f-1 vigor and "skunk" characteristics lie a super stretch in the first 2 weeks of flowering

he decided to remove the fans leaves to allow light to penetrate the canopy.

here is the grow at 16 days 12/12 including the 36 dark hours of shock flowering. i believe he vegged for 6 days, 3 too many imho.

soak the bed until its evenly moist and try to space the kiddos evenly in the bed, each strain to their respective sides. i think the bud capital afgoo is left and bud capital green crack right. once the bed dries from the first water, plants are fed 1st week flower mix and shocked with 36 hrs darkness. crock said some plants doubled in mass during this 36 hrs. hes using advanced nutrients 2 part, big bud, b52.

line the res with poly, fill level with your fave dirt mix. he used pro-ix hp.

here are the 25 afgoo and 25 bud capital green crack cuttings rooted and ready.

my buddy "c-rock" just got a pro, and prefers organic herb, we had a brutal heat wave when he bought the box so i told him to do a dirt grow with the sea of green method with 50 plants.

day 66- day 49 flower- these nugs are fat, dense and coated with crystals, white widow is amazing.

day 66- day 49 flower- with overdrive these buds start shooting(clawing) out in all directions.

day 66- day 49 flower- 10 more days and this nug will meet its maker.

day 66- day 49 flower- this is the top of a side branch, the door of the producer keeps it upright, cuz it falls when its open.

day 66- day 49 flower- 7 more days of water then 3-4 days of dark n ice:) these ones realy came back from the water logging!

day 59- day 42 flower- look at this lil piggy, was one of the more stunted plants and looks like will still get 21-28 g from here at least. notice how fat the bottom buds are from the t-5 sunblasters:)

day 59- day 42 flower- notice how the tops are "clawing", this is thanks to the the explosive nature of overdrive from advanced nutrients.

day 59- day 42 flower- this is one of the top colas, this thing is glistening.

day 59- day 42 flower- this is a side branch of a bigger plant. the plants are white already, with neon green seed bracts.

day 59- day 42 flower- add 100ml of mother earth tea bloom and 62.5 ml liquid carboload in 12.5 gallons for next 7 days. maintain ph at 5.6.

day 52- day 35 flower- that one in the back was stunted worse then the others, and still grew a decent single stalk kola, perfect for sea of green systems

day 52 - day 35 flower- they don't call this the white widow for nothin, this nug should also double in mass the next 2 weeks

day 52- day 35 flower- white widow- this still young kola is already 8 inches long and should at least doulbe in size in the next 2.5 weeks.

day 52- day 35 flower- white widow- these vigorus ladies are stil exploding in height and girth, this is their last week of overdrive before flushimg comenses.

day 45-day28 flower- look at the bud sites! covering every square inch of the plant! thanks to the superior nutes from advanced nutrients, state of the art grow cabinets from bc northern lights and cutting edge genetics from arjan @ greenhouse seeds makes for very rewarding results for beginners and pros alike. i'd like everyone to know that the producers(and other bc northern lights boxes) are the best for controlled experiments for breeding seeds, testing nutrients and foliar feeds, lighting and other aspects of growing in controlled environments, and growing out moms and seeds for new stock:) they take up little space and give great results for scientific study. with 1 male you can pollinate 17 other females of like or new genes with over 1000 seeds per plant per breeding session, unbelievable. just wait and see what "medicine man seeds" will be releasing:)

day45- day28 flower- they aren't called white widow for nothing. after 4 weeks of budding, most of the fan leaves coated with tall standing trichomes:)

day 45-day 28 flower- the widows are really back now, they grew an average of 1/2 an inch a day last week. the flowers are getting dense and are covering all the branches. they started the overdrive this week ( check purple kush recipe). still a bit bumbed that i mucked up in the beginning but it looks like now they'll be giving back 3/4 of their potential, which is nothing to complain about.

day 38- day 21 flower. the white widows have rebounded awesome and are now making up for lost growth. its a shitty pic but they are about twice as big as last week. the feeding is week 3 again. if you can see in this and last weeks pics, some babies got so water logged that they haven't even grown since day 1 flower.

day 31- day 14 flower .i'm getting a little disappointed with these ladies because things were so perfect till i started flowering. if you decide to grow sea of green or veg with 12hrs cfl 12hrs hps, unplug the water pump and use only when needed. these white widows got overfed and water logged and now they are extremely stunted and a shadow of their potential. the crop will still be amazing, just not as much as possible. follow week 3 recipe from "purple kush" post. signs of overfeeding are: wilted leaves, pail and/or dropping off lower leaves, no growth, red/purple stems. thank god i only have 4 more weeks till i can get my next chance to make these white widows perfect:)

day 24- day 7 flower- 4 t5 sunblasters are added( these ones are adapted to the cfl socket to use the cabinets timer) and co2 is turned on at flow 4. follow the "purple kush" recipe for the most updated version of my o.g. feeding program. most plants have doubled in size from last week. spray the hyox, isopropyl alcohol fungicide for mildew prevention.

day 17- because these white widows have not seen any hps light( so bright in the bcnl producer and reflective material ) and are going right into flowering, i spray them with 2 parts water 1 part wilt stop from advanced nutirents to prevent any form of light shock and/or wilting from transplanting.

day 17- rinse off all your baskets of h202, roots matter and salt residue, place clones into them, then cut x's into your poly and place transplants in the lid of the res. once in their final home, they are treated with "no wilt" and given 36 hrs of darkness to shock them into budding:)

day 17- after plants are were harvested, res was cleaned and the box was disinfected with 60 ml/litre of 35% h202 and 40 ml/litre 99% isopropyl, let air dry then lay down some black and white poly to double growth rates.

day 17- the roots are dying for a hydroponic res to call home. remember, keeping plants a bit needy is far superior to giving them too much, especially when growing hydroponically.

day 17- this is the same cutting pictured in day 10. it looks more then twice the size!

day 17- when the last crop is cut, soak the baskets in warm water and 100 ml/ 20 litre hyox, soak for 15 minutes

day 17- the roots match the green growth- thick, strong and healthy. make sure all your specimens have rooted thru before placing in the box.

day 17 -7 days later and these beutiful white widows are vibrant, vigorus and have grown enough to force flowering. the box they are going into was harvested today so there will be 0 down time.

day 10- place your new transplants under fluorescent lighting, in this case t-5 sunblasters. this batch of white widows will be rooting outside the bcnl producer because it is still 7 days from harvest. this tray can also be placed in a producer to root, or transplanted directly into the baskets into the lid of the res if need be. optimally you want your babies ready for flowering the day you harvest. 7-10 days under these lights will be perfect for this growers situation.

day 10-once the prop tray with holes is full, place it in a prop tray without holes.

day 10- i notice that gently pushing down and turning the small cube at the same time, like a screw, makes for minor root stress and or breakage :)

day 10-once the plant has been treated for shock and pests, shes ready for her permanent home.

day 10- the next step is to disinfect your cutting/seedling in 30ml/litre hyox, 20ml/litre 99% isopropyl alcohol with a ph of 8-10. master secret- take care of pests or disease when the plants are at their smallest. make sure to dunk and swirl the clone for 5-10 seconds so the whole plant gets treated:)

day 10- take your cutting/seedling and soak the medium in 10ml/liter with 'no shock' from advanced nutrients to eliminate transplant shock and initiate explosive root growth into the new medium, in this case stonewool.

day 10- place all 21 cubes in a prop flat with holes. make sure to squeeze out any excess solution from the cubes before placing them in the tray.

day 10- in 20 litres/5 gallons:90ml b-52, 30ml jumpstart, 30ml hyox, 5.0 ph. soak 21-3 inch w hole rockwool cubes for 24 hrs.

day 10-thick, white roots=strong green plants. i love the white widow(greenhouse seeds) because: it clones so easily(these roots in 10 days), is roughly 40/60 indica /sativa, extremely mold and mildew resistant, bugs don't like it(even thrips in bc), it smells amazing and not overly powerful when growing( unless in huge quantities), will finish in 45-49 days(if needed) in the bcnl cabinets or other hydro set-ups, grows beautiful white buds with no hairs, will do well as a smaller or larger plant, is very vigorous. its a dream to grow and an amazing hybrid specimen.

day 10-i have noticed that the strongest most vigorous specimens root the quickest, veg the shortest and yield the most. this beautiful white widow baby is ready for graduation ahead of the rest of the pack, with 20 others. always wear gloves when working with stonewoll and or chemicals and plants. it will maintain a clean bill of health for yourself and your plants environment.

day 10-here are the first 21 rooted cuttings from a tray of 50 white widows. they've been rooting for 10 days now. only the lightest coat of atami's bcuzz rooting gel was needed to promote faster sealing, callusing and rooting. most rooting gels will also provide these same benefits.
