    Wow - that Sexbud is developing fast at just shy of 5 weeks of flowering!

    Thanks for the kind words guys! I really didn’t steer away from a very simple program. FFOF straight. Once I felt it was time, I used AN pH Perfect at about 1/3 strength. My water is tap and filtered to pull out the chlorine using an RV water filter. The pH perfect really puts your pH where it needs to be for soil. Recall, my tap water starts high at a pH of 10.5. Using the 1/3 strength pH Perfect 3 part formula, it would put it at around 6.3 - 6.5 consistently. When I did feed straight water, I used GH pH Down to bring it in line. Since I was using non-organic nutrients and having to add quite a bit of pH down when I fed straight water, I gave them a shot of FloraKleen by GH twice during flower to help pull out any of excess salts that had built up.

    Anyway, I am excited to seeing how the Sexbud’s and Captain Redbeard’s Cherry Pie pan out with this local living soil I’m trying. So far, at almost 3 weeks flower, I’m seeing no issues.

    Ivan, I am using HIDs. 315w CMH for veg and a 1000w HPS for flower.

    That’s all for now folks. Keep growing and stay lifted

    Hi Jerry, how are you? I haven't been here for a while. You are doing great..wow. its looking really good. I'll take the time to read through the report soon. Which Mars light are you using. I got three myself now and I'm so happy with them. I have the sp6500, ts3000 and ts1000.
    All the best, talk soon

    I was gifted a pair of clones and will be running these next. They are Super Lemon Haze and Cherry Pie. It will be interesting to see how the Captain Redbeard’s Cherry Pie I am running now compare. Click image for larger version

    Nice, Jerry! You are on a roll and it looks to me like you have your garden "dialed in" - those TOCs looked like they grew beautifully straight through to harvest. I'm anticipating you'll get some eye (and nose) candy from the SLH. I'm really excited to see Captain Redbeard's Cherry Pie flower. I haven't flowered the Cherry Pie clone before, but photos of it in flower look just like the photo he used on his seeds - if that photo is of his seed working of the Cherry Pie clone, you may find it to be really close to the actual clone. I'm quite interested to see how the clone and his seeds compare.

    I think the TOCs look done now, but I would just be guessing. Maybe you should harvest it in stages to see what timing is best for the TOC. I do know that the TOCs look great - it's a beautiful plant and you grew it well!

    Yes, learn and share, then grow up. Nice vibe here.

    This mornings trichome pics of the TOCs. I'm cutting off some bud a few inches down from the top of the cola to get a good look. A bit longer is needed me thinks.

    So I'd like your guys take on when to pull clones. Of course when they are in veg is optimal but I don't have that luxury. Once my TOCs finish, they are going to the tent for drying and all the remaining plants move into the flower room. If I wait until the TOCs are ready to come down before cloning, I'll be looking at not pulling clones until around 20 days into flower. Anyone ever take cuttings that late and have success? Any tips and tricks?
    They are looking good, Jerry! As far as clones, I've had very few root for me that far into flower. I've had more success re-vegging lowers after flower. My C99 was like that - I harvested everything but the lowest, most immature buds. Then, I gave her weak veg nutes (she was fully flushed at the end of flower) and put her in the mother room. She re-vegged a couple months later. The re-veg took around the same time that the plant was in flower. But, if you don't have the space in the mother room, definitely go for cloning - it may actually work - you'll have to go through a re-veg period on the clone, but it's worth a try.
