13 days of flower

Looking Nice, yes it is going to be a full tent, but should be fun, was thinking is there such a thing as a individual scrog? a single net built over 1 pot? with 3 strains I am definitely having different growth rates, again should be a fun first grow in a decade experience. So the closeups are the Jack Herer and Green crack, the Super lemon haze is less bushy and had the most stretch .

Theres the updated photos!

Looking good my friend. If you have uneven shoots I would LST em to get them as even as possible. If you wanna go hardcore you can super crop them but that would more than likely delay the harvest a little bit which I know you said your going out of town for the holidays. It's gonna be close. Do they have any bud sitting businesses out there. You know sort of like pet sitting when people go out of town. LOL.....

Peace

I have been pulling them out when watering and moving them around so they get more even lighting as they grow, but I know as put on weight I won't be able to move them around so easily. I was thinking of trying to tie them off to the pot it's self, so they I might still be able to move them a bit but not sure if that will work.
I think I am going to just stay with this 600W Platinum LED, I was looking at adding some CFL's but the ones I have on hand are 5000K not ideal for flowering, if they were 2700 K, i'd add them but I don't want to add any more heat or spend additional $$, if the buds are not as nice as what my HPS would yield, I may add another LED next time around.

Thanks for taking a peak and chiming in, I am going to up the fertilizer strength a hair next water time, as they ate the last stuff up and had no hint of it being too much.

You wont have any issues moving them around just man handle them ladies. Last night I used some safety pins and foot long pipe cleaning wires and clipped the pin into the rim of the smart pot and noosed up a couple pipe cleaners lassoed a few of the girls about 6 nodes up and pulled it down through the pin to bend em over exposing those second and third layer nuggets to the HPS rays directly. Then there is always that odd one that grows taller so I super cropped two of the future colas pinching and bending about 6 inches down till they were laid over even with the canopy. They responded well. The tops are already pointing straight up right in line with the rest of the tops of the others.
As far as light I would think the additional CFLs wouldn't hurt. If you need to up the lumens on the fringes. Buds don't discriminate any light is better than no light. They don't run hot and really are pretty energy efficient. Just my 2 cents....

Thanks for all your encouragement, . I doubled the fertilizer last watering, on your suggestion, if they looked strong after 48Hrs to up it, they did, so I did, and they still look happy, happy.


Re- LSt - OK then, I am going to go hog wild and do the same. I was thinking they could take it.



Re- Light couldn't agree more, nor could I resist more light, lol. I picked up some 2700 K 1250 lumen bulbs bulbs and put a spliter into a 12" dome reflector so 2 bulbs in each and am dropping one into each corner to erase any low light spots.


I did notice the LED has a lot of red, and when I added the CFL's it made the red less visible to my eye, do the plants still see it?
thoughts?


Again really appreciate the tips.

Hey Traceofvenom, I've definitely been slacking on the updates, sorry about that good news is I have a few days worth to add tonight. Thanks for answering the Q, about the red light. I added a second trumpet reflector with 2 2700K 75W 1250L CFL'S in each, diagonal of each other, I have a vertical oscillating fan in the another, so I could add one more trumpet. I have been upping the fertilizer strength each watering with no sign of burn, I've heard sativas can burn, so been going easy. I don't think the growth is at top pace yet, I let them get fairly dry before watering but now in flower, thinking I should up that some too, I have just been fearful of over watering, that's why I go a few days between watering. Speaking of water, I am only adding a Black Magic bloom boost, keeping it simple but should I be considering other additives? I Ph my water to 6.0 before adding the BB. Overall I am really happy how things are going, 23 down, 47 more if I go to 70. One of the Green Crack is short compared with the others but it's buds are stout and getting crystal covered already. It's funny I'm used to more work keeping my Ph stable with a DWC, loving this soil grow.
