      i'vent this one,but i've done wonderdiesel x appalachia, and a lot of bodhi's crosses with the appy male.with the wonderD,the appalachia male isn't dominant like in other crosses..i've find my best diesel of alltimes(..and in 7 years of research i've try all the diesel seeds available...).
      i think this cross it's also better...for me one of the best work of last year...i'm jealous..have u keep a male for some f2?

        I'm culling all males as I don't have the space or proper know how to deal with males and breeding.

            Things are coming along nicely. I've started on building the flower area out as the girls are just about busting out of my closet where they are vegging. I'm hoping to get them situated in some 5 gallon pots here in the next day or two.

            Here they are on the 7th.



            I had a bunch of packaging bubble wrap and spare time so I thought to insulate the cold foundation walls. It definitely makes a difference and it will help regulate temps when the lights are off. Here is the foundation wall prior to bubble wrap.



            I used the wire that was hanging out of hook the material on to.

              This was the stopping point tonight.





              These are the hemlocks that were popped on the 28th. As I suspected with the premature looking seeds there was some trouble popping a couple. Two flat out just couldn't hack it. Two special cases I almost gave up on and threw out. The proper looking one in the solo cup I had to peel the shell off of and still separate the cotyledons in order for it to open up but it looks like it's coming round now. The other is definitely weird and I still don't know if it can hang.



              Looking proper but ready for some more space and a 600.



              My favorite of the lot



              The weird additional preaxial limbs are still there and coming out at all the new nodes. They grow really slowly however and don't seem to be hurting anything. Preflowers pop up where these meet the regular stem.

                    Mam o man it's gonna be tight in there. was wondering, with the ECSD side of the plant, how you are gonna do it if they take off and really stretch. Good luck with the grow.
                    I'll quit growing my meds the day they rip the bong from my cold dead hands!

                      Thanks resinryder. I'm planning on 2X stretch just because I have no idea what to expect. The plants will have at least 3 feet vertically not including the pot. I'm more than happy with 6 3-3.5 feet plants around a vertical 600 watt. I'm excited to try some new things. The crawl will keep it short and interesting. If they taller ones start going nuts I'll just keep pinching the top cola stems to make them bush out. No sweat

                        Good deal. Sounds like you have a plan. Just a suggestion, maybe tie the branches down and get them to grow low, like below the pot. tie a string around the pot that will give you an anchor point to tie the branches to. Kinda like growing em low like a ground cover. if that makes any sense, lol
                        Here's a pic of LVPK I did on a rack several years ago that kinda shows what I am trying to say. If I remember correctly they are in 15 gallon pots here.

                          Nice, like each has has its own individual SCROG. I've done the tie down with string method but it's a pain in the ass as far as having to retie knots all the time to adjust. I can't remember where I saw it on this site but I saw somebody using pipe cleaners and binder clips to position and tie down limbs. I liked it because it was easy to bend and adjust the hook around the limb and it was also a breeze to adjust the binder clip alongside the rim of the pot. I have played around with that several times and I'm going to do something similar with that garden wire stuff and bamboo stakes. 2 or 3 stakes to a pot and wire the stem and limbs accordingly. After transplanting I'm going to take off the lower Larf and makes clones out of them. After that it's creating a front and back to the plant for the best surface area to face the bulb.

                            You started a very interesting thread Who Dat Is.What made you decide to use the crawl space? No spare room in the house or hiding it from others in the house?

                            The bubble wrap is a good idea if it has some insulation quality. The panda film made the space look professional and clean.

                            You could do a vertical scrog. Put the screen for each plant facing the vertical hung bulb. Have the plant container behind the screen and the plant bent over and through the lower part of the screen and just keep tying the branches to the screen and let them spread and cover the screen. You could get a huge yield by doing what resinryder did but vertical.

                            Whatever you do you seem determined and will do great. I will enjoy watching this.

This is a pretty small house without any extra space. Also, I might be living in Colorado but growing isn't something I've ever advertised or been open about unless I know you really well. I like the challenge too of utilizing such an atypical space.

After I see how the phenos flower and know which ones I want to keep I might go that route when I know what to expect from them.

                                Been spending a good bit of time down there trying to get everything up to speed. I got everything potted up last night and down in the crawlspace. The last touches I have yet to do is make the rest of the perimeter to keep the light in. At first I was going to mount it to the floor joists and tape everything up but I knew that I would be forever battling the negative pressure from the exhaust. I think I settled on making mobile partitions out of PVC frames with panda poly attached in the middle. That way I can move them around and adjust as necessary. I always like to have that freedom to tinker around. Anyways, on with the pics right?

                                The girls right after transplanting last night.





                                Keep in mind, this is what this corner looked like before I doctored it up. I'm really happy with the turnaround.



                                I'm trying to keep track of the different phenos so I can remember which ones to keep after cuts, how they grow, size, etc. so I took pictures of all of them individually. There seem to be 3 different ones that I can pick out at this time. #1, #2,#5,#6 seem to be a sativa dominant pheno. #3 is similar in structure to the other 4 but has a different leaf pattern and even some of the fans have 9 blades - #3 is my favorite. #4 Looks to be a more Indica leaning pheno with shorter distance between nodes and squatter stature. It's normally looking happier but I think it's settling into it's new home.
