Wait until you see what genetics mature properly in your environment. I recognized the hand writing from the future. It was Dubi's, kindly reminding me to be patient. Peace
Isn't technology great?! Why do they sell these as light timers when all they can run is an 80w incandescent?
I know you're far north of me, but I think the greenhouse gives you an excellent chance of seeing things into december at least. I don't remember if you have any Hazes or super long flowerers going? Your landscape looks much like my southwest high desert, but I'm guessing you must be lowlands that far north to still have desert landscape. If you have strong sun in winter, that'll keep your greenhouse happy. Which appears to be built like a tank
We've got super strong winds around here a couple months at a time, monsoon rains that start with 10 minutes of hail... the other morning found me outside holding a cloth napkin between my teeth and my two hands over my seedlings, while getting pelted in the back with hail for a good five minutes. Hysterical image really. The whole time totally in panic/fight or flight reaction and fatherly protection of my babes. Hadn't got soaked like that in quite a while, since last year I guess
Never had a good reason to stay out in hail before.
Anyhoo, pics of final buds tomorrow. All plants pretty different in their final expressions. Nominally trimmed ZAmTam is now in jars, I've been sharing Miss P and there's only a zip left, HUGE favorite around, very powerful smell through plastic bags. I dip into 5 top more than beast, finding her kinder. Lady S is just about there, having had a few hours out of the bag today to finish off the dry. She's got very nice, dense buds, triangular instead of round like Miss P, and I don't know exactly how she'll smell yet. I hope her clone survives as she was a babe in veg.
I've started pHing the seedling's water and I think they're happier for it. Still small despite huge sun and heat.
