if it hits like SD ill like it.
I flowered the mother of these clones first run. Very crisp citrus notes with a strong fuel-like aroma. Blown away by buzz. Glad I ended up with some healthy clones. These four are about twice the size of the mother plant was when flowered. Counting the days.

The next set of clones are taking hold. Couple of the early cuttings in the peat pellets were just placed in 4" starter containers. A couple of cuttings I started in the 4" containers are in there too. Can't see the roots on those, but I'll give them a couple weeks to show some veg growth before I give up on them. Still another few in pellets not showing roots yet. Hoping for another 4-6 plant flower run again. Seems to be my productive range. Veg/train for solid 2 months and flip.

Get in the flower tent tonight for weekly feeding and fresh pics of the current situation. End week 3 I believe. Have to look back at notes.

Those clones are getting comfy in the 4" starters and this Deathstar is on its way. Pretty sure we're at 4 weeks now. They're looking sugary and filling in nicely. Took a lot of yellowing fan leaves off and opened them up a little. Gonna let them finish out now with the least amount of stress as possible. To this point I have only supplemented nutrients once a week following the NFTG schedule they provided with the sample box. In comparison to my last grow, this one is developing much better. Previous grow went five weeks in flower under LED before finishing. Development was slow. This one has been under the HPS from day one of flower. Pics. Pics. Pics....

the density will be very good under hps
will you harvest them all at the same time or will you stagger them to get different "seasons" of the cure?

I understand the question, but by "seasons" do you mean the buzz? Early harvest typically very energy buzz, and later harvest tends to be very sedating? I've read about this. It's not always the genetics or indica vs. sativa that determines the range of buzz. Or do you mean something else? Not sure how I'm gonna attack, but I'm gonna let these go as long as possible. I'm in no hurry for product, nor do I wish to limit the potential. Just gonna pay attention to the trichome development and pull the trigger at the appropriate time. Anybody's experience with taking the top half and allowing lower sites to further develop? Wondered if that's a common thing. Under growth get over ripe doing this? I remember doing this with a single plant ages ago, but had no clue at the time. Can't say it really mattered.

Once we approach 8 wks, I'll label them and stagger the harvest. My issue is getting things hung, trimmed, and jarred in a timely fashion. I'll do my best to keep things orderly, so we can have some solid results. Any suggestions on the time between harvests? Give it days or a week? I'm in process of getting a scope to examine the trichomes. Let's get to week 8 without any hiccups first .

So I have this Strawberry Cough going too. Fortunately she's healthy and about 3wks along. Unfortunately, she's under junk LED. Lol. I'm just gonna let her ride it out. Developing slow. Plant really divided up. Lots of bud sites. Not enough light. Too many bud sites for this little 300led. We'll see what happens.

Clones are marching on. Some strong candidates. 2 Deathstar 2 Strawberry Cough. DS nice uniform growth. SC coming outta the gates lanky and stretched. Already applying some restraints. These girls get crazy wild. Like college chicks on spring break.

*Edit these clones were cut Jan 20th. Total 12 taken, 6 rooting well. Possibly 8. Time Will tell.

Pretty sure I'm hovering somewhere in early week five. Lots of hairs going orange. Bare minimum 3 more weeks. Does this seem early or just me? Anything cause this or just typical? I'm gonna look into it, but it's always good to hear from others experience.

I stuffed this other LED in with the strawberry cough. Trying to accommodate her as much as possible. Again, cheap light. Think it's a 600. Let's see what she does.
