El Clandestino general cultivation tips
What do I need..
To start your project you'll need seeds or cuttings, pots +/- 4 liters soil mixed, added with about 20% Perlite, a minimum of 400 watt HPS light, table ventilator, extractor-fan, electric timer, fertilizers and a diary.
Beginners info: light-cycle and fertilizers..
The light-cycle for the vegetate period is 18hrs on and 6hrs off. This is the same cycle as outside in the spring time and early summer. When you want the plants to flower, you drop the amount of light hours
to 12 on and 12 off. This makes the plants think it's heading towards autumn. Within 2 weeks you will be able to spot the first signs between the males & females. (see picture on page 5)
When you have the luxury of cultivating in the Netherlands, you can go to any grow-shop and buy all fertilizers you need. The best alternative is to use fertilizer for tomato plants. The main fertilizers are; Basic Soil-mix, Nitrogen, Enzymes and PK 13+14 (Phosphor-Kalium complex). Don't worry about the amounts that you have to give them, the exact measures required are printed on the label. Start with the minimum, you can always add more.
