Being my first grow with LEDs and not being able to give them the attention I usually give to my plants, my goal was just to reach to something like 0,5gr per watt. The flowers are not that big but they seem very compact and so I think I'll get something near to 15gr from each plant, which would get me to achieve the 0,5gr per watt goal.
As you guys can see in the pictures they did not get the yellow color on the leaves that I like to have on them before I harvest. I think I abbused a bit on the worm humus I used in the soil mix, because the Bio Canna Plus is already very rich in nutrients and so I should have been more moderated in the humus use. I also think HPS dries the soil faster which makes me water them more often, which helps to clean the soil from excessive nutrients and so with HPS maybe they would have made it into turning their leaves yellow. Next round I'll pay attention to this
Also, more or less for the same reason, I think the 2 LED bulbs will do very good for me during summer time because they produce almost no heat and it will make it possible to have at least a couple of plants flowering indoors. I think one of this 30w Arcadia LED for one autoflowering plant is a great solution for growers who are very moderated consumers and/or can only use a very limited space to have their plants.
On the other hand during the winter maybe the HPS lighting is a better option in the sense that it helps to warm up the cold nights inside the grow closet and to dry the soil faster. I think if it wasn't for this and for the excessive worm humus I could have got something like 30-40% more production from this 2 beauties. Next time I'm going to use one of this bulbs inside a 30x30x60cm tent with only one auto
The aromas are unbelievable. I'm really sad that I can't share the aromas with you the same way that I can share the colors, but they are as amazing as the colors. The aroma from the Red Poison is addictive, so sweet and fresh, I can't wait to try it and share a strain/smoke report with you. Black Cream has a stronger aroma and also very pleasant.
I remember you guys that the 2 plants from this test grow came out from other grow with 16 autos in a square meter, lots of plants from The Red Family and also a few Cream Madarines and Green Poison Autos. I did not have the chance to get fotos from every stage and many of the fotos I have are from a friend who took care of them, but I'll see if I can get a short brief resume of that grow also, because under HPS and with more space this plants produced 2 or 3 times more, that's why I have to share it with you
From my short experience with seeds from The Red Family I can confirm that what Sweet Seeds claims about 80% of the plants getting the purple tones seem to be very true. On the other grow I'll share with you I think 9 in 11 turned purple/red and the 2 plants I have in this thread turned completely purple/red since a very early stage of flowering and in the end they looked almost black. Definetly the most beautiful plants I ever grew, can't wait to try them on the Volcano
I have them drying for 7 days now so in about 2 or 3 weeks I'll be able to complete the next posts with the strain reports.
Sweet colourfull smokes
