Khatru’s Old School Indoor Grow 20-21

I’d like to share my new grow with the gang here.

I’m an old school indoor grower, using 600 watt metal halide lamps for vegging and high pressure sodium for flowering.

I’m doing 5 Gorilla Glue #4 and 5 Super Hash X Thai
The GG4 was acquired right here from HCC, while the SHT was crossed by me a couple grows ago. New strain? I’m just calling it
Super Hash Thai!

I started the germination process using the old wet paper towel method. All 10 seeds popped within 4 days, 7 of them in 3.

They went into red solo cups filled with Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil, and broke soil within two days.

Here they are starting out as tiny seedlings under 25w CFL lamps. A little stretching, but not too bad.


They soon took their places in the 3.5 gal containers that will be home for the duration.
I have good southern and western exposure, so they can spend sunny fall and winter days out in the light of the sliding glass doors, when they’re not under the lamps in the music/grow room

This is where they are today. I’ll be updating as a kind of journal, chronicling the growth cycle of these youngsters!

Gorgeous. I’m loving the symmetries, it draws me in every time.

Looks like you took them to the McDonald’s playground. Hope they had fun. (RE: Red structure) :rofl: (Please don’t kill me for the awful humor. I’m going stir crazy with cabin fever)

Good to see you, too! :slight_smile:

Can you please point me in the direction of proper topping and fim-ing? I’m having a terrible time trying to figure out what I want to do only because I’m trying to figure out if it’s a preference thing for more yield or what?

Notice the leaf structure of the 2 different strains here.

The first one is the Super Hash x Thai

It’s showing signs of being dominant on the Thai side, being a sativa, displaying longer, more slender leafs than the Indica dominant Gorilla Glue #4 in the 2nd picture, with its shorter, wider leafs.

Cannabis is a truly amazing plant in many ways
