bubba kush growing tips

Bubba Kush grow tips please.

JH420

Hey guys. I have some Bubba S1’s that I’m gonna attempt to make clones from soon (via EZ Cloner).
After the clones are ready planning to give them about 4weeks veg before I flower.They will be under 600 watt HPS, medium adjust-a-wings reflector, 3′ x 3′ footprint, soil grow.

Should I veg the rooted clones under t5’s or HPS lighting? What distances should I use here?

Should I go with 3 or 5 gallon buckets? I’m wondering if they grow too branchy to stick 9 plants (in a 3′ x 3′ footprint) in 3 gallon buckets?

Should I be looking into topping/FIM/LST etc for these?

Any other tips specific to Pre-98 Bubba Kush S1’s would be most welcome by this rookie, I just wanna do justice to Cali Connection’s fine work.

T5’s would be my choice for veg and I would place the light as close as possible.

The bubba is not a vigorous grower so you should be OK with 3 gallon pots.

I always top my bubba at least once and it seems to work out better than letting them go without.

Thanks brothas. perhaps I’ve been going too light on the Micro (Advanced Nutrients)? I’ve been using 5ml per gallon (soil / fed twice per week) and have been getting a fair bit of yellow (nitrogen def) leaves at the bottom. so I should be safe to double that dosage to 10ml per gallon? I think my babies are just about the same age as yours Sal. yeah they smell great for a plant in veg.

Here is my nutrient regimen for veg, all values based on a half gallon which is the total amount used to water my ten kushlets. nutrients added twice weekly:

Micro 2.5 ml
Grow 5 ml
Bloom 1.5 ml
Enggy’s Fulvic 4 ml
Sensi Cal 2.5 ml

Plus I use grozyme 3ml per half gallon. ph’d to 6.5. I’ll try to get some pics up later tonight.

Extremely vigorous plants if you are growing the Cali Pre98 Bubba.

I wouldn’t top but I am growing outside and about 36-40 inches tall is optimum for me!!

I have to disagree Alek, for me, the Bubba is a SLOW vegger..After about 4-5 weeks of Veg, it will go a little faster, but she has to be well established,imo.

Topping is a must if you want decent yields, along with a few “pinches” during Veg really helps with the yield also.

I have to agree also here. Bubba has got to be one of the most pain in the backside plant i have in my stable. It grow’s so damn slow, but will increase as she get’s bigger. I’m finally getting her dialed in, but I’ve still got a lot to learn with this girl. She is a slow vegger for sure, but I nice looking plant.

Good luck with your plants. I hope they do well. I barely feed mine and they grow well. You should do well with these plants. Sounds like you got some nice strong plants. If they are yellowing. I would bump up your feeding like the other member posted.
Good luck,
BG
