    As most of us in the U.S. are flipping there clocks forward an hour tonight. Some of us are debating on rolling their timers back.. I started at 18/6 and have been deducting 3 minutes on each cycle side every so often so far this go.. sitting at 16:30/7:30 tonight, considering that these most likely will be seeded and overall grow timing is starting to come into play... I may just flip to 12/12 and get em thru the process.. They are looking better, but - started getting a bit warm this last week, 86F at the canopy level and show slight heat stress on some upper leafs.. Got em back into comfy zone 74-76F.. These LED's are certainly a bit of a learning curve as to heights and effects. Installed a net tonight and have been watering with Dyna-Gro at a rate of 1/4 tsp to 4 cups H2O, 1 Watering of Hydro Guard only, 1 Watering of Recharge only, and twice added 3/4 to 1 cup EWC top dressings.

          Looking good crossbones. When you thinking about going 12/12?
          LEDs are a bit odd. Ive had mine for about a full year now. I keep em at the top of the tent. Even still i find they make the plant more compact and result in smaller leaves than even my 1000 watt hps. Do you find the same thing in your experiences?

          Growing for a seed stash, more than a bud stash.

            Your garden is continuing to look better and better Bones. I bet you're itching to flower them out soon. Hope it'll be soon, so we can start to see some buds stacking .

              Changed the timer to 12/12, so I guess we can call this Day 1 of Flower, or is it after the lights go out, so tomorrow?

              Thanks for the support thejact55 and Dave, it's been a tough abusive test so far. Started these around the same time as Shooters, watched ReikoX zoom on past by... and thejact55 shows us all the seeds do stay alive...

              These plants have seen Over watering, Gnats, Under watering, too hot, too cold, fert issues, 400w HPS, 600w HPS with 600w leds, 0 RH for weeks, ect..

              thejact55 - The Generic Durban and Blueberry I've grown before under HPS only and this run they have pretty much the same size leaves and growth rate under these leds so far, with only a maybe a tad smaller..But my grow style is slow and low as well. I think finding that sweet spot is key as with any lighting.. I do push the limits to far tho sometimes, as evident with these last Dec.. I like the ratchet hangers and move lights up and down trying to keep em happiest. I sometimes think I may have too much light in the space I'm using, 900 watts led across a 4x2, but am happy to look at the kill a watt and see 400w being used, should have got em with a dimmer?? .. Spectrum of leds is crucial as well.. I tried to match MH and HPS spectral charts with this setup test.. RH also plays a huge part in leaf size as well..

                whew that's a lot of leds. how much area is that covering? I run the same viparspectra lights, so far I'm happy with em. lol glad my tents are the only jungle of crazy strings, bunjies and cords. I hate string things, that get tangled, like my pet peeve, so I don't do well with tent set ups lol.
                don't be hard on yourself, its all for fun. they look good, and show if anything they are tough plants. haha dave can thank you for reppin them in such a manner

                  @ Bones

                  Everything you've done to your plants, Ive pretty much done it myself too so dont sweat it . Im sure you're next run of them will surpass this one. Any plans on taking clones? Id love to see how they'd do now that you're getting things dialed in.

                  @Jact 55

                  Im glad to see these plants being grown in so many different gardens right now. With so many different methods. I just hope you all find the same pleasure Ive gotten from growing and smoking them.

                        They're looking really great, Cross! Winter's a difficult season to grow through without some serious climate control, but you got them through it and from these most recent pics, you'd never know they stressed it at all. Well done!

                        I love that all the males we're seeing from these seeds have purple flowers as well, just gorgeous. I take it that bin is for collecting pollen?

                        Keep it up!

                          Thanks for the update Bones. I enjoy taking a peek into your garden and seeing how they're all doing. I hope your clones make it, if not at least you have pollen to make your own seeds.

                          I hope you'll make seeds with that purple male. Im feeling kinda jealous as I have 5 males dropping pollen or about to, and not a single male has shown purple in his sacks. Harumph!

                          @DJimb, those garbage bins work well for collecting pollen. I do it myself in my garden too. Just got to be careful they dont overgrow the top of the bin. If you can keep em half as tall as the bin or 3/4th you dont need to worry much about pollen flying around the room from wind. It'll all just settle to the bottom of the bin allowing for easy collection.

                            Can seal it tight as well for lights off, or install a small light with timer, Unfortunatly DC3 is a bit over the top of this bin..



                            I'm not handy with paper folds, so I got these for pollen collections..



                            Had this laying around from a baking project, so will try it under the plant in the bin to catch pollen that would have gone to the soil..

                              Moved him to be alone in the curing room, cooler room temps there, set up some quick lights and a timer, may place a heating mat under the plant to help raise temps slightly..
