Thank you! Learning a bit everyday, but still figuring out the basics. Since been a week, I guess I'll post some updated pics

Black Widow on F28 in the smaller tent.

Camera decided to focus on the leaf here lol

Mimosa Evo (back left/front right), Glookies (back midle/front left), and Airplane Glue (back right) at F11. Back left Evo was messed up for every other node until I topped it. Almost tossed it, but now going nuts (height wise).

These pantry wire racks a game changer for hand watering. Little too much extra height, but I can flip over and prop up on something shorter in a pinch.

So I'm estimating mid May on the black widow and mid June on the others (all have relative same flowering time). Fingers crossed, knock on wood, and all that jazz.

edit - cat hair. I've never let my cats into that room, only open tents to water, and have little mesh covers on my ducting for air intake. There is hair every where still! And I'm bald, so it's not mine. I give up lol.


Where can I get those pantry racks ? Thanks

Search small wire shelf on amazon and you should find various options. I'm not too handy, so didn't want to build something. I knew what I wanted was out there, but took me a bit to pin down what I was looking for. Coming at it from a "plant" angle was frustrating lol.

I rigged up cold air intakes. Works pretty good. Was only $35/each. Very little hair in the tents

I bet. At this point I think it's mainly the hair already in there and whatever I bring into the room with me on my clothes. I have mesh filter coverings on my ducting for the air intakes. I'm not using the panels. Once these grows are done, I'm cleaning tents and rooms hardcore (which I'd guess I'd do regardless). But unless I get some CDC negative pressure staging area, it'll always be a battle of mitigation. In other words, here is me going in to check my buds next grow.

4/20 Update. More steady progress in the small tent. Nugs starting to fill out. I feel like my pics don't do it justice, but still look decent.

Bigger tent coming along too. Definitely one too many plants in there, but oh well.

Few tips I reminded myself of this past week. Double check what you're ordering is the right size. You get what you pay for when comes to equipment. If something critical, have a back up. Nothing terrible happened, just some "ugh" moments. Also, dose 2 made for a couple rough days of plant management lol.

Anywho, still trucking along here. F42 in small tent, F22 in bigger.

Bud

Lookin' good !

I'm due for dose 1 next week and dose 2 would be July. I'm glad it was only a couple rough days for you. On the good news side some people are getting flu after getting a shot because their immune systems are so shot they don't build immunity. I'd bet you have.

Plants are doing great.

First was fine, but both my bro and my pops had 2nd hit them hard and I get same brand. So I expected it.

White balance option? I'm guessing you mean for photos? Got some photographers in my life, can prolly pry some suggestions out of them after they scoff at me for just using a phone camera.

Steady progress. My uneducated guess is 3ish weeks left, maybe a little longer. Most pics from today, F50, except the zoomed in one. That is a 4-5 days old.

Red alert in the big tent though (F30). Definitely had a couple herm on me. Sprayed them down, bagged, and tossed um. Watching the remaining three like a hawk. No clue the cause. PH stable, temps stable, RH stable, no light leak, no major deficiencies/toxicities (just minor burn), etc. Maybe genetics? idk. Not mad, just wish I knew the cause. Smaller tent far enough along that it basically is what it is if pollen got out.

Imo it's nothing you did... some genetics just herm easy and you need to keep an eye on. I wouldn't rack your brain to hard on it cause your plants look nice an healthy with minimal stress.

Completely the opposite
Totally agree coco is a good substrate and it will have good air holding capabilities but it will drain quicker then soil without any doubt virtually impossible to overwater it soil is the complete opposite of that it will hold water much longer and it is very easy to overwater and drown your plants
