            They don't hold enough. I always want more. lol. Plus I had to add to one foot screens to the top.

            Funny thing is when I moved them the other day to sweep were they were they we top heavy and wanted to fall forward. They did need watering but I didn't want to sweep up mud haha. And that is why they have the clips to hold them to the wall.

            I did mess up a little and leave them a little thin in the middle. You will see when I start stripping the fan leaves what I mean. But plants don't always do want I want. Typical women right?

                I have a old thread called Vertical Scrog. This one is LED vertical Scrog so I can see why you thought that.

                Glad you made it.

                  I love the flexibility of the light setup, I think I might have to try something like that. Space, as always, is at a premium here and that may be the solution during summertime when I usually expand. The 4x4 takes up like 1/3 of my workshop. It also looks way easier to water, train and see etc. than the back of a 4x4. How long do you veg? Are they all on the same schedule, or do you stagger the harvests?

                    I am not sure how long I veg. I just grow extra in the veg and grab them as I need them. They don't have to be all the same strain. That is a benefit of this style. Because they get tied to the rack you can train the faster growers back to the screen if they get to big.

                    It does take some practice at first and a understanding of what the plant will do in flower. You do have to kind of judge how big it will get in flower so you don't run out of screen. Been there done that and it sucks when they get to big.

                    I think it is way easier than flat on the floor. On the floor is like you said hard to get to the back of unless it is open.

                    If you have questions ask away. If I don't know I am sure someone reading would know. There is a lot of lurkers reading along and they may know.

                      At day 49 now. Time is just booking along. Just 21 days till we are done.

                      So as I do every week I will post the first days picture first.



                      Now remember I switched the middle and the back plants part way threw flower. So keep that in mind when looking at the next picture if you are looking closely.

                      So here is day 49 of flower.



                      Finally here is a bud shot. Looks like a little fox tailing going on. So I moved the light back as far as I can which is 22 inches.

                      But the buds are looking good. Starting to get that final swell. They are shooting out a few more pistils

                        Today I decided that I would go over my PH meters for those who are new and have not used one.

                        I get my meters off of Aliexpress. I buy them cheap because I am not worried when they go bad. I paid about $8 per meter the last time I bought one. I bought I think 6 last time. That was about a year ago and I still have two brand new ones left.

                        So you can get them in a bag like this.



                        Or in a box like this.



                        It don't really matter. One thing about buying them is to make sure they come with batteries. Some don't and the batteries cost about as much as the meter.

                          Lets go over the meter a little so you understand how to work on it a little. And I mean a little because there is not much you can do.

                          First lets see how to adjust it. There is a hole in the back of the meter. This is where you will adjust the PH at with a screw driver and dipped in PH solution. You just put the flat headed screw driver in the hole and turn it. Come on it is not rocket science. Here is where the screw hole is and a screw driver I received with the meter.



                          Next is where are the batteries. Well just pull the top up and there they are. I like to save batteries when a meter goes bad. That way I don't have to buy more latter if they come with dead or weak batteries . I don't think I have replaced the batteries but two times in about 8 or 9 years. You can tell when they go bad because the display fades.



                          I like to check the PH meter about every week. And this is what I use.



                          It is cheap at about $7 or $8 for this bottle. I think it is a pint.

                          But I don't like to waste it so this is how I check the meter and save a few cents. I use a new cap from a meter I have not used yet. I fill it about half way up and dip the meter in the solution. Doing it this way I only need about 7.5 ml of PH solution.



                          If I use that same measuring cup it takes about 28 ml to read the same meter. And that cup is only about the size of a shot glass. You will need more if you use a bigger container.



                          You can see it is just barely covering the probe at the bottom of the meter.

                          Now how I work this is I use one meter and take the lid off of a second meter. The lid off the second meter then stays with the PH solution. I use the cap with the PH solution to check the meter in. When the first meter fails I grab another meter and put the cap from that meter with the PH solution. I then use the old cap that was with the PH solution as the new cap for the PH meter now being used.

                          When I get to the point that all that is left is a meter with no extra cap I order more meters. I then use the cap off the old meter instead of the cap with the PH solution.

                          By rotating like this I don't have to worry about build up in the cap affecting the PH solution I am using.

                          Also by using the cap I only use 1/4 of the PH solution and I save a few dollars every 1.5 to 2 years. Yeh I am that cheap.

                            I am sure that was boring for the guys around for a while but it had to be out there for the new people.

                            So for the rest of you here is a bud at day 51 of flower. CBanana #4.

                              I got tired of buying those cheap meters, so I got a nice Bluelabs one. Of course, I have since gotten rid of it since I'm doing living soil. I keep some pH drops around in case something wonky happens.
