Speaking of those clips, I just removed one off of the base of the lucid dreams and added some to the branches:

Man those clips come in so clutch, I am going to have to pick some up! Looking great bro, keep up the amazing work! Fruits of your labor are definitely going to pay it forward!

Since I knocked off work early, I figured I’d tend to the rest of the photos and do some more clip training.

I decided to go into the auto tent and see if anything could be trained further and ended up using a bunch of red clips (mainly on one plant):

0395FCE1 28A9 4515 889D 11029084DDF1


The one with all the clips - I accidentally snapped the main branch (whuuuuuuups) but not off. Hopefully she’ll recover okay:

C830F1CF C616 400A 8706 3A43795E7114


I ended up watering both of the bottom plants because the pots were light. I’ll likely need to water the bottom right again tomorrow as I didn’t have enough time to whip up nutrients before the lights went out, so I used about a cup of water to get her through the night.

And here’s a shot of the photo tent - nothing was done since this morning:

They’re starting to drink good now! I do think I’ll only fill a gallon at a time next time. I have to stir up the buckets as the nutrients kind of settle to the bottom.

This mornings photo tent:
E3CA4027 B0B1 4FCF 8DBB 646D67B1D20B

There’s a few sad leaves, but overall they’re doing good. I added a few more stress clips, stirred the waters, and trimmed a few leaves off.

I’m slowly taking the lower giant fan leaves off. Mainly because they’re either getting covered up and/or running into the side of the pot, or in one instance growing upward, covering a good portion of the canopy.

Depending on how they look tomorrow, I may start topping them. If they look like they need some recovery from the nutrients + training & trimming, I’ll wait until sometime next week.

Not much done - some light trimming, added more pollen to the 2 spots I added some to last time just in case I was a bit early.

Bottom left is much bigger than the other 3. Must be in the sweet spot in the tent 🤷‍♂️

Did some more stress training to the silver alert and white widow C plants:

I’m running out of clips so I ordered a bunch more lol

Today’s auto tent pics:

The bottom 2 are putting on some flower weight and plumping up.

The back 2 are still taking their time. The back right is a week behind the other 2, and the chonker is still being a chonk:

Nice and bushy. Everything seems well in here. I may top them later, but I haven’t decided.

I ordered some cheap water pumps to toss in the buckets so I don’t need to keep stirring the water. They won’t be here til Monday, though, so I have to hand mix still.

Did a little pruning and training to the photos tonight:

Some closeups of the clips:

83860F19 5407 4F66 AAAF AE8A1BE328AB


I didn’t top any yet. I’m gonna wait a few more days to let them recover and let the current tops straighten out and point back up.

Most of the plants are 4 weeks old from their first true leaves, and I’m planning on flipping over to flower in 4 weeks.

Pics from yesterday (since it’s after midnight now):

Auto tent:
7C10455F 8A98 458F 86B1 14596735E84B

I may have trimmed some leaves earlier. I can’t remember now lol. I did water 3 out of 4 of them today, and introduced tiger bloom. All nutrients were at 50%.

I tried to fit 2 plants into the same watering system as the photos, but I can’t fit 2 of the 3 gallon pots in these buckets. Such is life.

The photo tent:
7DB69082 A43F 4F5D AF74 7CFE92D34261


The only thing I did in here today was added the water pumps to each bucket, and filled up the buckets with a half gallon each (with half dose of nutrients).

The next feeding or 2 will be just regular water I think.

The water pumps have been going for a few hours and the water looks like it’s still mixed well as opposed to the nutrients settling to the bottom.

Lots of pistils coming in on all plants. Watered the bottom right tonight as she needed it.

The photo tent:
DB00ACEB 0091 4F0F B044 194CC65A3E24

Did some light pruning, did some rotating of the pots, did some light training.

I reduced the light intensity as one of the plants had some signs on the top leaves last night - tonight seems to be no further issues.

I’m probably going to top them this weekend as some of them are starting to get pretty tall, even with the training clips, but I want to get another node or 2 before I do that.

The water pumps are working nicely, too!

The bottom left plant has shot up quite a bit! The back left chonker has some thick pistils. I’ll see if I can snap a good pic in a little bit when I water them.

They kind of look like half eaten salads right now, but that’s okay 😅 I did some good training on them tonight.

Here’s some pics of the limber ladies:

It’s hard to see from these pics, but some of the plants were tough to tell which the main stalk was since some of the branches got thick.

On a few, the tops have been LST’ing very well to where it’s opened up a few more tops in line with the canopy.

Here’s another ones for comparison:

Maybe it’s just me but they seem thicker than the others.

Da’well.

Ignore the smaller pots and seedling tray - I’m starting my spring veggies now haha.

I didn’t do anything in here today. The humidity is hitting somewhat high (62%) so I had the tent partially open all day which kept it around 58%. It’s still at around 62-63% right now, but there’s not much I can do besides crank the pellet stove.

The photo tent:
530DA3CE 9C61 45F0 A0CD D6A3E9B917EE

I didn’t do anything in here except removed a stress clip from the white widow c plant (bottom right). I did add a half gallon of plain tap water + orca to each bucket since I already fed them a gallons of food each this week. I’ll let this batch get low then add in a half gallon to a gallon of fill strength nutrients.

I added some stickies to everything because I saw a gnat. I’m assuming it’s from my lettuce that I put in there (miracle grow for that one - hush, don’t hate lol), but it’s impossible to tell.

That’s all for now.

Hey I’m late but better than never right? 😂 looking good! Growing like… weeds 😂😂😂👍👍👍

And growing veggies too? Alright my kind of grow 😁
Hell yeah!

Got a few pots of bunching onions, red creoles, and 40 pepper plants in the seed tray.

Can’t wait for another 2-2.5 months to start getting the planters and garden beds made for transplant and other veggies and fruits 😁

Looking really great in there bro!! Humidity fighting is a pain in flower, I’ve got a dehu running 24/7 in my room. Struggle to keep it down for a couple of days after watering, but it was a good investment in the long run but ya know everything power related is going up.

Yeah, I have a small dehumidifier in that tent.

And yeah, I just got my electric bill today. $150 more than it was last month, so a 75% increase. Not exactly happy about that.

Hey there, Those clips you use are interesting, I've not seen them used very much. I just bend mine over when I need to but they spring back up I may have to try a few of those gadgets. You seem to have lots of head space it looks like you're planning on some big buds towering off short plants😄

You're fking with autos???? while they're in flower???? I'm not an auto guy but I thought that was a no no with auto's. I just let them grow but you've......abused.....yours....and???? no problem in flower....wtf .......something is not computing in my fuzzy grey matter?🤨
