I was thinking during that time that they would have loved some more light. Hoping you may have more power shining down on yours and we'll see how fatter your buds will finish.
I made a quite few F2s from my 3 moms, and plan to run more very soon. I also dusted up a nice Satori and a beautiful PCK with the same #8 male from that same grow. Can't wait to run some of those too. Thanks for the mention earlier, will watch yours as they progress.
Hey Keif, it was a well deserved shout-out, you did a helluva great job with those plants.
Thanks for the kind words and info. I had intended to flower these under a new Quantum Board panel that is supposed to be equivalent to an SE 1000w HID. However the aforementioned setback due to bugs has had me scrambling for space and time. As a result these will now be flowered under a 420w COB panel. I flowered under it last year and was overall very pleased with its performance (but that was done in an open room). I set off four other seeds at the same time as these and of those I am almost sure there’s only one girl. So there will be five girls under the panel in a 4 x 4 tent.
I would be lying if I were to say I am not nervous about this grow. I am already running into a bit of a quandary. I have grown in tents in the past but only with HID using air cooled hoods... I am finding that I can easily control the heat from the panel with negative pressure by way of an inline fan dialed all the way down with a speed controller. Finding temps between 76 - 78 and humidity right around 50. However when running this way the plants really look stressed. Look as though they need to be watered, even when they don’t. If I turn off the fan I am finding temps in the low eighties with humidity in the same range and even a little higher. In this environment the plants look fine. The pics I took were right after opening the tent when temp was 83 and humidity 85... so I need to look at some options for better controlling the environment in the tent... Hopefully I can get a handle on it.
Sounds like some great crosses you made - especially like the sound of PCK x C4DD! I'll be making some F2s as well.
Thanks for stopping in!

So does that leave 4 boys? how are they looking - did they get a lot taller than the girls?
can't see much or any leaf variegation either which is good.
Thanks VG! I can tell they’re really wanting to be potted up and that should be happening tomorrow. I will at that time take two cuts from each girl. I am looking for a few plants this season as contenders to run outdoors. After reading back through the thread I found others who’d grown C4DD also reporting little stretch and that it does well outdoors. I hadn’t really been thinking of this line as an outdoor contender as much as I was Chem D x Pre-98.
Five boys. I’ll be shocked if I am mistaken, but it’s certainly possible. All nine plants have maintained a good deal of uniformity with the males, as a whole, not being any taller than the girls. Once the two runts caught up there hasn’t been any difference greater than four inches. They're a little crowded and not a great pic but I grabbed one of the boys...
Great weekend to all!
