This grow is already about 3 weeks into flowering, so I guess I'll have to start with a bit of a retrospective on wtf is going on
There's more than this going on in this room, and I'll occasionally let the camera wander, but what I'm mainly looking to keep track of is an 8 bucket rdwc. 6 buckets of an Original Haze cut, 1 Chimera Schnazzleberry #2, and a Nirvana Blue Mystic
The Schnazz I've ran once prior, and the Blue Mystic is brand new to me, but the Ohaze lady has earned a continuing hunk of floorspace wherever I have light bulbs for a couple of years now - she finishes in 10 to 11 weeks, flourishes in 12/12, and tastes like batter dipped deep fried awesomeness.
An old baby picture of her from the seed run
Some of the first buds she gave me
This time around, I started off with a dozen buckets under 1800 watts, but for various reasons it got scaled back to 8 buckets under 1200 watts. The 600w bulbs are in air cooled hoods exhausted to another room so I can help heat the house with lumens this winter. A Whitewater LT24 air pump feeds the buckets, and a 27g res with a Mag 9.5 pump moves the water around.
For a plant that stretches for 7 weeks, I maaaaaaay have over vegged her a little bit this run
OK, maybe more than a little bit.
Without some kind of bondage, there's no way these ladies weren't going to grow thru the ceiling...but I also needed to make whatever was going to happen work with the two oddball schnazz/blue mystic buckets, too. So...some PVC and some string were shaken together, and things got a screen dumped on top. Starting off, the plan is to at least attempt to bend/manipulate/control the haze with the screen, and let the Schnazz/Blue Mystic grow thru in a more trellis like fashion. If I'm lucky, they'll at least somewhat land in the same canopy by the time it all shakes out.
Day 1 of 12/12
the 6 buckets on the left are Ohaze, the far right back row bucket you can't really see for shit in this pic is the schnazz, and the relatively midget looking plant in the front row, far right is the blue mystic
