quick pics. i gotta check run-off, pretty sure the pH is fucky. leafs are showing various symptoms of VPD and lockout, one plant in particular is looking underwatered (sad one, front row, center). the run is just doing runt things. keeping it around though because, well, sometimes those ones hold true magic.

after the remaining checks, confirmed three males, one potential female -- the sex organs are still too small to confirm 100%. should have confirmation tomorrow. males are front row, nearest camera, back row on either side, potential female is back row center.

not sure if it's the silica or if it's the genetics, but these leafs are thicc and the stems could be used to kill a man. the phenotypes are pretty cool to see as well, decent variety but plenty of uniformity as well. so long we get two females out of this group, we'll have a run. otherwise, i'll be doing a monocrop.

did a little defoliation and it turns out the runt isn't just a runt, it's a fuckin mutant. it's topped itself on one of the branches. now the real debate: kill it as its genes are obviously kinda fucky or keep it and if it's female, run it and find out if it's garbage or gold.... hmmmm....

yo @Aqua Man i know silica toxicity ends up causing the leafs to develop with strips missing between the varigations, but at lower levels, have you seen it make the leafs look like these pics? super thick, leathery almost, with edges pulling up slightly (almost like late flower when the frost rails start to show up), twisting, etc...

VPD is on point @ 0.91 (Air: 84F, LST: 82F, RH: 71 -- fixing this right now, fans were turned down 😬 )
25k lux
Input: 5.9 pH 1.0 EC
Runoff: 5.9 pH 0.8 EC

The only thing I can think is I'm dosing a little too much silica for this stage of growth, plus the power si bumps the P a little bit so might have a ratio slightly off there. whatchu think?

What kinda dry back to they get with your fertigation style? I’m used to watering my 1gal coco once per day🤣

so, i cut the fertigations in half a few days ago. right now they're not even hitting runoff until the last fertigation of the day. they're getting a bit more dry back now, but before i was basically running em as i would wool at this point. i was hoping to see something off in the runoff numbers but they're perfect, so i'm thinking it's the additive (power si). plus, that shit is jelling up in my res again. fucking HATE power si. gonna order some front row ag instead because fuck this shit. $80 bottle of poop is what it is.

My tent is also showing thick stems, insanely stacked branching and nodes, and thick leaves.

Getting these Bms bx1 X MMM seeds planted in the next couple weeks while my others are finishing up. 1st time growing regular seeds so the whole process will be new to me. I was wondering if I should top and train like normal pretty early on because its pretty late to start after it shows sex. Looks like you've answered for me.

How they coming along tobh.keen to see how well these girls get it on..
Well, I burnt the fuck out of em with too little runoff and a 24hour dry back cycle followed by a flush. in that time, they managed to uptake way too much of something and a bunch of leafs are now all the crisp. still waiting on a confirmed female to show up, the males were much more eager to show their balls. i suspect i have one but i've frankly been neglecting the tent, just doing a quick check daily and refilling the res as necessary.

given these are testers i figured they couldn't have it all easy, and it's not a fair test to execute flawlessly. also, it doesn't really matter right now anyways since the coco show isn't the main event. i might snag pics later, might not. nothing too exciting to see other than the "holy shit those got roasted" lol

when i have some extra time i plan on it. trying to come up with some actual topics to discuss, which is pretty damn hard i've come to find out. most of the rides i've taken lately have just been around the neighborhood, and probably won't get in any this weekend as it's forecast to be in the mid 90s all weekend, and you won't catch me out in my leathers in those temps unless i absolutely have to be.

Idk if just my luck but Any of the moonshine crosses ( from Jeff or his line) I’ve ran all turned out more males than female ! Sorry to hear bout the crispness but if it can be fixed u the man!

Mine need uppotted and moved to the veg tent just been busy.

I've ran into that too -- that's why i pop so many extra so that the odds of getting at least one female are reasonable (try to hope for a 3:1 male to female ratio).

yea its interesting how that works out, it seems people either get a lot of males or a lot of girls pop after pop. but...in the future...for the next few years anyway, Im going to be focusin on making feminized work. so males will be a worry of the past!

i'm a huge fan of the gamble man. Feminized are great for time sensitive runs, but there's something about regs I can't get over. Maybe it's just being old school, or one of those things where it's just how it's always been done. Stoked to see your fem lines coming out though! that's gonna open up a huge market for ya

It's been a while, so here's a quick update. TBH haven't really been in the headspace to be doing much of anything other than staying heads down. So far I have one confirmed female and one confirmed male, the rest of the plants can't make up their mind what they are, or at least aren't making it known to me. As a result, I'll be taking clones from the one female today and culling the rest.

In other news, finally bit the bullet and picked up some big boy networking gear. Have various reasons for this decision, but primarily I'll be able to run cameras all around the property without having the video uploaded to the cloud, and am now able to segment my home network so I can rest easy knowing the kids' school laptops and my work laptop won't be snooping what's going on across my network anymore (haven't confirmed they even are, but VLANs will stop em if they try). Temp setup for now, the 24 port PoE switch is an expensive bugger and I'll be picking up some CAT6a as well and having that run throughout the walls/attic, so what's here will suffice for the moment. Will likely move the rack to the garage once the wire is ran, and send the servers out there too to clear up space in the office.

Will likely update again once clones are rooted and the best of em have been selected to be ran for the show.

The big one in the center of the back row is the one confirmed female. They were pissed off because it was 71F in the tent... having problems keeping the heat up this round, likely due to the addition of the T6 intake fan, whereas the S6 fan I was running just couldn't keep up.
