Question

Here's the CFL cab with the scrog.

I had planned on letting 2 plants to grow up to the scrog and training them, but then I realized I had 2 large overgrown Sweet Widow Lavender plants in 6" pots. I figured I could shove them in the cab and bend and train the branches to the screen.

The Sweet Widow Lavender are clones from original TRC beans I was gifted. They are old beans and the first successful germination turned out to be a male, from which I did save some pollen. The second successful germination turned out to be a female. These clones came from that female plant.

Here they are all overgrown in their 6" pots



I transplanted them to larger containers



Here's the empty cab



Here's the cab after I stuck the pots in there and forced the plants under the screen



I then wove and twist-tied branches to the screen. Luckily Sweet Widow Lavender's branches are strong yet very flexible.



I had planned on immediately flipping the lights to 12/12, but it turned out the timer I was using was broken and never shut the lights off. I didn't figure it out for a couple days, until I noticed the timer dial never moved. I also had forgotten to add the two 23w cfls, so it was running three 42w for 24/0 for 3 days.

I added the two 23w cfls and replaced the timer and let it veg for another 2 days, then flipped the lights to 12/12.

Here's the plants four days into flower

Day 04 Flower



Today is the end of the first week of flowering. I'm still making little adjustments with stem/new growth placement, but that should end soon.

Day 07 Flower





Not really sure what to expect since I'm starting with such large plants lol

The plants in the 1 sqft cfl cab just finished their second week of flowering. I kinda screwed up and didn't check them and a couple branches stretched up into the lights and got burned. I pinched those tops off and supercropped the plants some more.

Here they are at the end of week two of flowering, and after I supercropped some of them again.

Looking great, Blynx. It's cool to see the cab with the bathroom fan, it was hard to picture what you were talking about in chat - now I see....cool design.

Thanks!

Here's last week's Sweet Widow Lavender scrog update that I forgot to post.

Sweet Widow Lavender

Day 14 Flower





Here's this week's update

Sweet Widow Lavender

Day 21 Flower





I'm going to wait another week or so to see how far she stretches. If the stretch is done and there is still many inches of space between the bulbs and the canopy, I might try raising the scrog and containers. The scrog frame is just resting on shelf brackets and moving the whole thing upwards should be doable (I hope lol).
