Still throwing white hairs but even the fox tails are fattening up now.

That screen shot makes me kick myself doubly hard for not doing two screens. My shit's all floppy lol they'd been much more organized had I done like you did here.
That's only been in little over a week now. Should have done it sooner. I was kicking myself for not doing it 3 weeks back. Took a friend and I about an 1hr to maneuver and reposition all of them. Will for sure get both nets in a lot earlier from now on. Only 2nd time using them really.

I don't notice the smell too much. But then again I live in it all day also in the country and don't have many people over, and those that do know I grow.
Growing 15yrs now in soil, this is 2nd hydroponic grow.
By no means a master of any of this. Just having fun and enjoying the hobby.

If the smoke isn't needed I'd let the go another week/10 days.
Figured it would be ripening up faster. I'm just letting her go till she is ready.

My next 2 are just getting set up in plugs now, change over timing should be just right.

Today is 9 weeks of flower on the calendar. Just waiting for a bit more amber. So I'll check her every few days, but she needs to get the chop Saturday. I have 2 Autos that need to be placed in net pots and top fed as they are shooting roots out of the plugs already.

And the clone is growing well, starting to really take off. This will probably end up as a mother for my first full run in new rooms. Lots going on here at the NuggetY Farm 😂, new perpetual grow thread should be up in the next few weeks. But will be mostly of finishing up rooms and equipment set up.

Well they were looking sad so I set up the AF seedlings in their net pots and in the old buckets. Was expecting to be changing everything back over to the 2 container system but the N.L. is taking her time. Again I will be trying to hit a goal of 1-1.5 pounds from the 2 Autos. I came in at 14oz with just the 1 Tutankhamon Auto last run, so I'm aiming a little higher this go around.

Started flush today. Using Flawless Finish this harvest to see if I notice any real difference. Never used an actual flushing agent, only ever used plain pH'd water so I'm interested to give it a go.
After tomorrow lights out will begin the 48hrs darkness. Should be giving her the chop on Friday or Saturday. Sunday will be a day of cleaning and set-up for the 2 Autos.

Holy hell !! That looks awesome. Great job! And you got that massive plant without topping. I guess for my 2nd grow I’ll try it topping and see how she turns out!

Awesome job

So here we are. Holding steady at 55% humidity. Drying done, now to cure. Gonna need more jars I think 🤔. Smell is great. Pungently delicious, has a floral/citrus flavor, smokes smoothly, no bad taste when cashed out, clean burning. Of course there are a few things to nit pick, but I know the minor mistakes made, so I can only improve from here.

I'm not too picky on my trimming since I actually hardly touched them with scissors yet. I'll clean them up some more but very little left to do. Love my DIY trim shaker. Saves me many hrs on trimming. Any going to market gets cleaned up nice. And the trim is sifted through for small buds that pass through. And then trim/shake is used for oils. Not much gets wasted. May pick up some bubble bags this year, wouldn't mind having some good hash on hand.
