  • Zamnesia Critical Grow

    And we're off! I finally settled on Critical from Zamnesia. They seem to be quick (7 weeks!) and I'm looking for a sleepy strain to grow. Since ditching the tobacco in my spliffs a year ago I find that all weed makes me pretty upbeat and energetic so hoping that this will chill me out more.
    I popped these seeds a few days ago. They took 2 days to open and then I planted them in soil and they took a further 2 days to show their faces. Here they are on the kitchen window sill. They are upstairs under lights now. Will post more pics after I go up there later.
    At the moment they are in a mix of Levingtons Compost and Perlite with just a sprinkle of volcanic minerals. I will give them something a bit stronger when I pot them on.

    Hi guys. Things are picking up in the loft now. The girls are getting under way. I have given them a wee drop of fish emulsion, some bio bizz root stim and a spray of Rocket Fuel foliar spray. Anybody else ever used this?
    Anyway. Here they are at the moment. Just going to let them get a bit sturdier ansd then it will be bigger pots.
    At the moment I'm thinking of putting a couple in to flower early and letting a couple veg into monsters and comparing the difference. We'll see how it goes.

      Here's a wee update. Girls are getting bigger. The leaves are quite pale at the moment but I plan to fix this with some calmag and some nitrogen feed.

        Got an issue here I'd like some help with. The leaf situation has got worse.
        Top leaves are wrinkled, lower leaves going pale and then blotchy.
        I've checked the pH and it's somewhere between 6.5 and 7.0
        These girls haven't been fed too much, yet there's enough in the soil for it not to be a deficiency. Although it's obviously something.
        Any input would be much appreciated.

            Yikes, they are looking a bit harsh. Have you had any issues using the soil mix you have? It seems that there may be a nutrient deficiency like zinc or manganese-how are you feeding them

              I know. Not a pretty sight eh. I'm a bit flummoxed. Definitely looks like a deficiency but I am using the same soil mix I always use. The only difference is that I've used biobizz root juice and a foliar spray. However I have used this on my other babies and am getting no problems there.
              Often a deficiency can be caused by a surplus. The salts block out the roots and prevent nutrient uptake. So I have flushed these babies and fed them with a weak seaweed feed. Let's see how that works.
              There are only 3 of these in the veg room now. I potted the biggest one on and put it straight into flower to see how it turns out. I normally have to train all my plants so thought it might be fun to put one under 12/12 whilst still small and see if I can grow a plant out straight and untrained. Will post pics soon but that one seems to be in a bit better shape so I may pot these three up after the weekend and see what happens. Maybe the soil mix was a bit out when I originally potted them.....
              More pics to follow.
              Could still do with some input here if anyone has any idea what's going on.

                Here's a wee update. I've flushed and repotted the girls and they seem a bit better. I've racked my brains over this. Soil is the same as always. The only difference was that I used a foliar feed on them and also some root juice. However I treated other plants the same and there were no ill effects.
                It may be possible that I used a soil mix that wasn't well enough mixed and there were pockets of unmixed nutrients or minerals in there..... Is that possible? I guess it must be,
                Anyway, here they are. New growth seems OK and I think they may be getting better.

                This one still has some ugly crinkled leaves. Will be keeping a close eye on her.

                  So I had already potted on 1 of these Critical plants and put her under 12/12. I did this really early (about 6 - 8" tall) just to see how she would grow out short and untrained. This is how I would grow them if I was going to do a SOG grow with them.
                  This one seemed to recover quicker from whatever was wrong with these and is now doing fine in the flowering tent.
