Good luck man, I'll be keeping up with this one. I'm most interested to see if you can get several low odor girls this run or if your lone female from the previous grow was just an anomaly. Keep us updated on that
Hey JPG thanks for swinging by!!
Yeah I know for sure no matter how much bud I get, it wont hold me over for 18 years. But youre right the memory will be nice! I had vegged these for almost 4 weeks just in case I only got 3-4 females. I figured they would get nice & tall, but I never thought I would get 9!! It will be interesting to see how well I can fit these in there as they get bigger.
As far as the odor goes, so far the stinkiest time was about 3 weeks into veg. I had no fan in the closet and no way for air to escape. The humidity would build up and when you would walk down the hall you could smell a distinct funky plant smell.
Now that they are a week into flowering, I can hardly smell them when I open the closet door. Its the strangest thing, and I still dont even have my fan hooked up pulling air out haha! If you run the stalk or a leaf though, the smell is quite distinct. Its actually much more skunky than I remember, but Im sure that will change as they continue to flower.
Ill probably wait a week or so for a picture update, and hopefully by then Ill have some nice clusters of white hairs on the top few nodes of each. I really think at least 60% of these are going to look just like the one I grew before, just taller. And Im giving more and more thought to rigging up my 150w HPS right next to the 250w, what do you guys think?
