Well my 3 tents are basically heating my house 🤣 have the thermostat set at 21 and it hasn't come on yet lol. It does at night when all the lights are out. But not very often. I have a fan in the doorway of the spare room that just blows the hot air straight down the hallway lol.

Smart thinkin’. Believe it or not i exhaust down through the floor in my flower room and duct it out right under the living room.

1515 watt heater it is. Saves me about a tank (400gallons) of propane every year.

In summer it goes to the chimney where the old wood stove was in the basement.

Clever! I thought of removing the floor hearing vent and exhausting to my crawlspace. Lol kind of like heated floors 🤣

Week 6 update: buds are filling in nicely. Although slower than the last time. But that's fine there is a lot more of it so I can wait 😆

The new 315 cmh is working out great. The plants actually look healthier under this light. Probably just a visual thing.

Shitcanned 5 clones ( buddy wanted them but never came to get them).

Re potted the new gelato to a 3.5g pot.

Also been testing some wick systems.
This is the first small one I tried. Have since gone bigger.

Week 7 update:

Seems to have leveled out height wise. Guess she is just gonna fill in now. Shes got at least 3 weeks left, but looks to be about a week or 2 behind. So we shall see, might be an 11 or 12 week.

Midweek update.

Main tent is chuggin along under the 315 CMH, still filling in and smelling great.

20191105_090537.jpg

20191105_090602.jpg


The 3'3" Solo is switching it up on me. I've been giving it what I give the big plant, but its acting very different. Its getting purple, and looking like it wants to finish.
I'm sure there is just too much plant for such little dirt. I should have cut even more off the bottom.

20191105_090502.jpg


The micro tent is still impressing the hell out of me. Its 1 week behind the main tent, but looks to be a week ahead.

Week 4 update:

Got her up to 1300ppm and she isnt complaining too much. N has been dialed back to half reccomend, moving to quarter starting now.

View attachment 901962

Even after massive defoliation (almost 1/3 of the leaves) it's still a bushy beast.

View attachment 901961

Also looks like it's going to be return of the dongs. This time they brought friends.

What a beast!!! What’s lurking in the solo cup? Looks a little big!

Hey I got some seeds out of some bud and planted them but they don't look like a marijuana plant. Can you tell me if this is a seedlings
They don't look like any MJ plants I've ever seen or grown man, and I've been growing on and off for a long ass time. Where did you get the bud? They look like what comes up in outside grows in the summer 'ie' from old soil thats been seeded with wild flower seeds from the wind. Sorry man just my opinion from experience.

Week 1 of flower

Actually its day 5. But to keep things easy we're gonna call it week one 😆

So, 5 days in and she's starting to show her dongs, schlong's? I don't know, call them what you will but if this goes anything like its mom did, I'm in for a field of dongs. Not sure if my 3.5g pot is gonna be enough? Lol

Plenty of head space for her, the canopy is sorta flat 🤣 plan on putting the secondary net in by week 2.

View attachment 897365

The monster at the side you see there is a 3ft tall 4 month old clone still in her solo cup. Thought I'd toss her in a corner and see what happens.

View attachment 897369

If you're looking for other cool stuff, I have a small micro tent scrog running 7 100w led bulbs 🤯

WTF! That solo cup clone is going to be crazy!! Really hope you keep it going bro so I get to see what the outcome is, And congrats on the last grow to man. Shedhead out!

Week 8 update.

Well I think she is getting close to done.
I'm not as happy as I was last run on this plant. They didn't seem to fill out as nice as last time. Though they do look a lot more sticky than last time. Slight purpling starting to set in, almost all tricombes are frosty, no amber.

20191108_110939.jpg


Tons of lower growth, thanks to the light penetration of the cmh.

20191108_110858.jpg


I think switching from LED to CMH mid flower slowed it down a bit. It's still filling in, but I judge it to be about a week behind. I may just let this one go forever just to see if it catches up.

20191108_111015.jpg


Still very nice and acceptable, but compared to my last run, and the micro tent, this one is the outlier. It has to have been the light.

20191108_111111.jpg


Then there is the 3'3" solo. Shes about the same, a bit more resin production, maybe a bit more bulk.

20191108_111402.jpg


Then there is the 1.5x1.5x3 tent. It's in week 7 now. I have another thread on the tent itself if you want more info on that.

Am seeing 2 different x5 cobs on amazon. Which one did you get? Or who was the seller? Very interested in checking it out
Any of them. They are all the same, they just rebrand them. Beware though, the first one I bought broke 5 or 6 months in.
It gave me a good crop, but I fear their not the best of quality. The company replaced it. But still. Something to think about.

Week 9 update.

Well it's clear now that for whatever reason, this plant isnt liking my CMH. Growth has been slow and leaves are showing signs of heat stress. Even though the tent is below 26c the leaf temps are around 29c. It's more than a foot away, but I guess that's too close. Might switch back to the cob to finish it off.

Buds are still looking great though, even if they are like almost 2 weeks behind now.

Maybe its because of the added uvb in the cmh. How far is the light from the canopy?

If you have more resin amd more stress thats my guess.
