MADE IN SOUTH AFRICA

Recommended Posts

During my high school year's all I wanted to do was go travel. My grandfather who had been round the world a few times said to me one day ' travel your own country first before you go travel the world '.

I did just that. In the days when hitchhiking was still safe'ish, my thumb took me from the East coast to the West coast, Cape Town to Harare. I hit the road to the airport with 180 pounds in my pocket and returned 10 years later.

It's kinda hard to explain but visiting those small dorpies and farm towns in SA prepared me for a lot overseas.

 

I got into indoor growing beginning of lockdown thanks to reservation moonshine and the bug has bitten.

I've decided to travel SA once again before I venture overseas but this time it is for the quality and service I believe is available in this country.

 

Everything about this grow is Proudly South African.

 

The setup:

 

CABINET.

 

Wife's custom shelving converted into a cabinet.

 

LIGHT'S.

@growopz QB75'S.

 

1 x QB 3000k/4000k.

1 x QB 3333k.

2 x 15w Osram led strips 4000k.

 

Rigged and ready.

 

Once again@growopz came to the rescue. Approached him with a budget and what I had and a plan was made.

 

SOIL.

 

JouMaSeSoil.

 

Coco - Peat

Perlite

Vermiculite

Basalt Rock Dust

Michorizzae

Diatomaceous Earth

Bone Meal

Dolomite Lime

Worm Castings

Kelp Meal Microbial Tea

 

Ph tested at 6.5.

 

Soil is made by a Cape Town local and so far so good.

 

SEEDS.

 

@Bay Seeds.

 

Bruce Banner 3 x TNR F1.

Glamberry x Lemon Jedi OG.

Master Lester ( Dr Grinspoon x Lemon Jedi OG ).

@Totemic.

 

Choc Gelato x Ghost Train Haze.

Choc Gelato x Slurricane.

 

@Daggafontein Genetics.

 

African Buddha.

 

Big shout out to all of the above for making this possible and look forward to the journey of finding those South African breeder's and gem's.

 

Next year bud's.

So I've had some locals setting up house in my plants during yard time.
@Totemic seem to be their plants of choice. c7a23e03fd830864dec2d10fd944dd8b.jpg146ab9f27d4f00be26ec9464dabc7dd3.jpg

Hey bud. Dimensions you looking at is 900 x 900 x 1600. Yeah so I'm limited to 800mm plant height, 1100mm including a 10l pot.

Had to put up a flowering tent for the big ladies, like you say, man space issues.
As my wife and my family business has not worked since February we have time on hand so the plants are marched outdoors at 6am then back inside 6pm. Don't think I'll find a better light in SA7f0f90236c0e387cee6ebbb41ec2450a.jpg

African Buddha from @Daggafontein Genetics first pic and Choc Gelato x Slurricane and Choc Gelato x Ghost Train Haze from@Totemic.
Grow got of to a jumbled start with some planted November and some December but the babies have settled.
The BB3TNR from @Bay Seeds was planted earlier and I think I over did it with the LST so the poor plants have taken a knock and are on the mend now.
Pics of the rest to follow later.88d949f1cd69c17854078dac44bd3d5c.jpge00a63c493aed028e3ebc9c0b82db2ec.jpg
