Now your Clones are Plants

June 8th, 2008

This is the last stage in the cloning process, potting into big pots.  As you can see from the picture we use square pots as this gives you more room in the grow area.

We use a mixture of Coco Fibre, moss peat and perlite (1sack of Coco Fibre, about 8 good size handfulls of moss peat and two buckets of perlite).

Water the plants copiously after re-potting and feed with nutrients.

Let the plants veg for a couple of weeks before putting them into floration.

From Clone Babies to Plants

May 8th, 2008

The clones which were planted into small pots in Early April are now ready to be potted on into bigger pots. As you can see from these Pictures


they are 15-20cm in height and have good root balls.

The next stage is to pot them on into bigger pots using the same soil, which encourages good root growth.

This is the size pot we use for this stage:


It took these Fatty Cola clones 3 weeks under the florescent lights to mature enough to be potted on.

Getting Clones Ready

April 15th, 2008

Here are some clones of Fatty Cola taken a couple of days ago. They are in rockwool cubes and placed in a box on a layer of perlite. They are under a 150 watt bulb - actually we use an energy saver bulb as that gives no heat - and kept moist. See the cloning page for details on how to clone.


And here are some clones that have been potted on. It took 3 weeks for good roots to form, then they were potted into small pots in Compo Sana soil which contains root enhancer.


They are under florescent lights full time and watered daily. As the roots develop, and depending on how warm it is, they may need to be watered twice a day.

Visit the Cloning Page to see how to clone plants.

After a lot of hassle..

February 15th, 2008

There have been a lot of problems with this site, from the Gallery not working to not being able to post after a server move, but hopefully, these are now behind us.

I keep thinking to myself that this project is so much more than growing good plants and the ability to smoke the proceeds (my favorite online headshop is here - their unique water pipe selection is pretty crazy). This is about getting the message out there. About letting people know that growing the herb is easier than they think!

All the photos in the Gallery have to be replaced and the site tidied up, so please bear with me while I get things fixed up.

The good news is the Fatty Cola won more prizes in La Bella Flor 2007 - watch for photos when I get the Gallery organized.

It is Sativa dominant (70%) Indica (30%) and should be fully matured within the next two weeks.
