Not sure if it is right or wrong ?

The camera is cool. Alternately, check out one of these.I just love being able to monitor from downstairs via camera. (Grows in upstairs room) If I didnt have this Id be up there checking once an hour.
Interesting. Thats a 2 sensor deal they have a one sensor thats even cheaper. I may get one.The camera is cool. Alternately, check out one of these.

You can get extra sensors and have as many as 3 on one monitor and just put the sensor in the tent and put the monitor where you hang out most. They get fancy with keeping logs of daily temps/humidity levels and they have some that have an app where you can check it wherever you are I think. I don't get that fancy and this unit serves me well.
Looking good Max. I only transplant photos once from solo cups to permeant pot. I never transplant auto's. Following,,, glad I saw your post!Day 18: Topping was successful and new leaders are there at the ready now and I had to expidite my transplant because these things are node stacked like crazy and I need some stretch to get my LST going. Lots of light blockage happening right now with these big fan leaves.
These three went well in transplant. The roots were circling so it needed transplanted maybe thats why my stretch is so short. Lights are at appx 600/Umol now. I left the lkight where it was I dont want it any closer and dont need it closer yet. Not sure what it is probably 25-26" No watering yet, Im gonna let te soil settle down maybe till tomorrow morning. Let the roots search for moisture and the Happy Frogs pretty fresh out of the bag I have, nice and cool.
I have PH balanced water ready with some Myco brew with a whole lotta good Mycorrhizae and 1% N. I may add a dash of Molasses and Big Bloom (guano and castings) Ive given these plants NO nitrogen to date. Which is ironic because I apply Nitrogen to lawns for a living.
Now I have bad news to report. Mini me was murdered by my dog. My fault. Had her comfortable in her soil in a 3 gallon pot fresh planted and on the floor as I did my others and well....she likes her veggies and it makes sense. My fault but it looked like a murder scene. Bummed too because I worked hard manipulating and bringing her along I expected a fruitful bounty as a reward.
Rest easy tiny dancer. May you fill mason jars with fresh nugs for the fellas in that great smokers lounge in the sky...
I wasnt planning on going to half gallon pots first and wont again. It worked out because the plants loved it but these roots are active as fuck and they would have been G2G in the 3's. Ill start with a larger solo cup then go straight into 3's or 5's next time.Looking good Max. I only transplant photos once from solo cups to permeant pot. I never transplant auto's.

I keep telling myself "But steam says theyre gonna take off soon!" lol My taining looks a mess but because they were so short it wasnt easy or as fruitful as Id like but I had to get light to the lower stuff now. People been growing in plastic pots since plastic was invented. These new wheels/bags arent all theyre cracked up to be. Thanks man.They really should take off soon .
They have been growing their roots ,but eventually they will show more from their hidden activity .
I like the hard side of the bucket .It helps me water allowing the pot to dry out slower since there is less evap besides training advantages .
First grow had root bound 5 g buckets .Many say air style pots don't allow such expansive root growth since the edges of pot are often dry ?
Max there Indica's. More than likely a near pure indica. They produce the big and fat fan leaves and by nature are a short and squat plant. We can hope it will be good couch lock and drool inducing strain.Day 20: Started LST with a bend over to try to get exposure to all the great stuff happening below these huge fan leaves of these node stacking shortys. I fully expected them to be taller by now and so it made the training challenging but I think I accomplished what I set out to do. Also tried pulling a fan leaf or two out of the way.
Plants are taking about 1/3rd gallon water each day.
Im gonna start pushing some N to these plants once they recover from this.
Im wondering if the genetics is a mess on these Ive never seen such big fat fan leaves on such a short plant.
Any thoughts or advice is appreciated, thank you.
