Means a lot coming from you guys.Some seriously nice work in here... stunning
I need to go back and read this thread. Never enough hours in a day.
I have no idea what others are pulling. I know the stuff from illinois dispensaries mostly sucks. I know the stuff I got on the street sucks. I know the stuff my old dealer who is now legit in michigan pulls, comparatively, sucks.
It's all basic ass highs, even when it tastes good.
I don't know why that is because it's ridiculous to think I could be less than a year into this and be remotely good at it.
But i know that I felt like my bud was closest to stuff grown outdoors by an old timer i know.
What aspect of the grow causes that? Trying to figure that out. What other home growers are pulling? No idea. Am I delusional? Early surveys say no but people could just be trying to be nice to me when I smoke with them or when they are reporting back on my bud.
Idk. But my current hypothesis is the biggest difference between weed grown in hawaii and weed grown in michigan is the sunshine as opposed to soil. Just like tropical fruit....i am half puerto rican and have spent a lot of time down there. The sun is different. Plants know it. Even with the same heat and such, comparing dead of summer in the midwest to the average day in Puerto Rico....it's different.
I think the biggest operative difference is the quantity of UV and Far Red as a proportion of the spectrum (the difference has been shown to be there at least for far red and i have practical experience with the UV....).
Anyway, coming in hot this morning. Sorry.
You thought wrong, beluga. You thought wrong...I think I've found they get about 2 - 2.5' of decent bud production
Beautiful work here brothaDay 18 Fleur
Uggghhhh. Finally set up my desktop, and Man!...
It's so much easier to do these posts. Thumbs should always be reserved exclusively to the spacebar.
Raised the lights yesterday before defoliating. They were probably 2" away at most. No evident stress. That's cool.
So, new light position, new perspective

Well, winter's showing its (void of) colors. The dehumidifier is no longer producing what these girls need to drink.
Great for my house not rotting out from the ground up...
But, it looks like I'll need a new water source... never tested my tap. I guess now's the time. I pass it through a 10 stage filter, so that takes care of a lot. But I might need to buffer it more or something.
Anything else? Ugh. Love this keyboard.
Mr. Blue Velvet...

A reasonable amount.Beautiful work here brotha
Do you have any concerns about WPM with the density in there?
My first run I had 18 plants comprised of 6 diff strains and only one (the one I most wanted to turn out) strain, the Ghost Breath OGs developed WPM late flowerA reasonable amount.
I have no idea what the humidity is in the tent, but the basement reads around 40 usually... so that's not an alarming RH for mold development.
I have an oscillating fan clipped above where the camera shoots, and I'll probably add a tower fan soon. Hopefully all of that combined will keep it at bay. Never gotten the mildew indoors (even in a shed) and I've had some out of control RH... our summers are like Satan's swampass after his morning cardio.

Strain makes a huge difference. We had a room one time with pre-98 bubba, williams wonder, mataro blue, and purple white lightning, and the bubba kush got hit hard with wpm. Looked like it had snowed. Nothing else in the room got even so much as a speck.That might be another thing.
I don't think I've run anything far from heirloom strains that are usually rigorously bred for, among other things, their disease/mold resistance.
That's really fascinating. The Fruity Pebbles plants in the same run seemed bullet proof. I'm leaning strongly toward some dragons flame gear or possibly the Master Kush I saw recommended I think by @sshz for my next runStrain makes a huge difference. We had a room one time with pre-98 bubba, williams wonder, mataro blue, and purple white lightning, and the bubba kush got hit hard with wpm. Looked like it had snowed.

Dragonsflame certainly stress tests his plants properly. He is one of the good guys in cannabis breeding.
