I know people probably sick of seeing all my stupid threads, but I wanted to settle on a simple format. Pics are too difficult to actually appreciate what's going on in a perpetual setting. Seems like still photo's don't quite capture it right.

Anyhow, this is my attempt a more detailed, but less lengthy (easier to navigate) thread. Some of the auto's are starting to flower in the bottom video, so this is why I'm making this specific thread.
More will be coming.

Feel free to leave comments, constructive criticism, and/or questions, and I will try to follow-up.

Auto's are a bit droopy, so I'm concerned, any comments are appreciated, and taken under advisement.
Backed off the nutes a bit, and I think it may be too much nitrogen, or phosphate, if'n I'm right... (or both) Been bringing up the phos and potassium a bit, but I'm probably lagging on the mono-potassium phosphate, is my guess.

I'm running a perpetual grow now but looking at another tent to do the veg period in and rim 2 flower tents to keep up with the seed popping frenzy I'm going through . Each 2 to 3 weeks I move in another sexed female defo new tent coming and SF1000 and means I can still keep my drying tent in the Shen space as well .

I see that you've got a lot going on over there, no doubt. Are you putting any of it outside?

Yes I've got my little hot house almost finished plus my back porch gets the best winter sun so I'm going to do a winter outdoors grow as well ..

nice! You got your jungle back. :-)
Yes, the only thing that made sense today so far! The flowering tent is starting to pick up and fill out some, (at least the canopy is filling in) and upping the mono-potassium was the right move. I've got to get some of those girls out of the other veg room (and whereever) soon, or I'm going to be overrun.

The only thing I can say about these EARLY MISS AUTOS is this, some of them only have 3 or 5 leaves on them, is this a common trait anyone? I was hoping to breed some of that ruderalis out of the plant, actually, and try and breed some of the bigger kushy leaf traits into it, but it didn't happen the first time around. But they still look pretty good, overall. Hopefully, I've at least increased the flowering times by a week or two, and instilled some quality West-Coast genes into the flowers.

More pic's, it's really blowing up now, having to remove about a big plant daily, to make room for new growth.

Well it's certainly rolling... The garden is exploding everywhere, it's just blowing up, so I've got to keep getting in there and rotating the pants around, and pulling a few to put at other locations.

Here's the updated vid of the veg room, I've been occasionally removing a few here and there as time permits, and what the room will accept. It's certainly at a breaking point, where plant growth is being inhibited in some of the plants, so I keep rotating them to to keep it in check as much as possible.

Looks great Frank what week are some of the ones at the back of tent ?
My guess is that some of them are approaching 3 week point, I believe. Maybe 2 1/2 at minimum, but that big one was just put in there about a week ago.

I don't keep track of it like I should, I mostly just look at the plant/flower itself, to tell me what to do. Pretty soon, I think I should back off of some of them, actually. There getting to that phase where they won't need quite as much anymore, let the momentum cover them. But they have been sucking the liquids up pretty good, I've been letting them get almost bone dry at times. Also spraying the bases with microbes everyday.

Moisture capturing surfactants... Glycerin, dipotassium phosphate, potassium bicarbonate and coco glucoside foliars.
Coco glucoside is so very clean and gentle, it works like magic. Mixing alcohols and sugar or glucose = alkyl glucoside. I add the potassium bicarbonate, (used in vinyards, and tobacco cultivation) because I think it creates trace amounts of carbon dioxide, and water. KHCO3 → K2CO3 + CO2 + H2O. It also inhibits mold, and keeps insects in check.

Couple of the plants, seem to be blowing up really nicely. Approaching week 3 with some of them. Everything seems healthy, have to pry them apart, so they can get some space between them to grow., lol

Some roots? Is this bound yet? lol Got lots of these I've been working on, there the next plants in line. Can't be holding them back too long. I put a little coco on them, and the bottom of the cup, then spray them with microbes. Keeping close tabs on phosphate levels, ph is low. Not even been checking, TBH.
