Day 94: Still pretty much autopilot until later this evening. I will be adding another 4 gallons of RO to my reservoir today that should bring my EC down to 200ish. And should be 0 by Saturday.

Now I was going to start tomorrow afternoon and give her 36ish hours of darkness. But now I am thinking I might actually pull my light out altogether tonight and just run my bad ass H80 and bathe her in nothing but UV/IR until harvest on Saturday. I am really curious to see if that really does anything. Especially some last minute trichome production.

My second hanging drying rack and 4 tier basket comes today so I will be ready to go on Saturday. She is just to big for only one hanging dry rack. Plus a lot of the lower buds just a little smaller than a golf ball are not able to be hung, hence the dry basket.

I am getting super excited to harvest this last plant and be able to have some free time before I start my next run in a month or so. I have a lot of revamping of my tent and setup I want to do before my next run or i would do it sooner. Also thinking of going to a 4x4 or even a 5x5 so I can still do only 2-3 plants max but have room to really get in the tent and move around the plants. I am also going to keep my tent as clean as possible on three sides, as right now I only really have access to the very front. This will give me a lot more access as well.

oh yeah almost forgot to mention. The last few days the buds have gotten so dense and heavy they are really leaning and I have to be super careful opening the tent. They want to flop to the floor and I have a couple of close calls every time I open the tent. A good problem to have I suppose.


Obligatory cam shot and canopy shot:

Day 95: Good afternoon friends! So I actually got a few updates today nothing to terribly exciting but fun experiments none the less. Day and a half until harvest time!!! 🪓🪓🌲

Firstly I topped off the reservoir with RO which gets my EC down to ehhh 150 or so. Just to note EC of my RO is like 2-3 🤪 That being said this won’t be a total flush but close enough I should be at like 20-30 EC by Saturday.

Lastly I pulled my SF-4000 from the tent. Man that thing is heavier than I remember. Also, it is not a fun task to try to get it off the cross member when the cross member is actually strung through the hanging wires and the plant is about 3-4 inches from the light. I then mounted my Kessil H80 to the top of the tent and have that on full UV/IR at about 750-760nm it is redder than the devils ass in there and looks like something out of a horror show. That light is about 1.5’ from the plant last and has a spread rating of 2+ feet, so it will cover the entire canopy just fine.

It should be fun to see what they look like at harvest, either really sunburnt or some good last minute trichome production? Anywho here are some pics.

Before and after cam shots, the Arlo has a hard time focusing in all that red light.

Using only red light is very interesting is that even something that should be done? Only having the red spectrum? I know it’s meant for flowering I just wonder how much red light is too much? I’m building a LED fixture to fit in my 2x2 at my girlfriends house and got 2 strips of deep and IR its gonna be badass when it’s finished you got me motivated to have some wall to wall 2x2 grows. Grow is looking great man but all the red looks kinda strange lol. I got 3 lemon kush clones flowering in mine currently I’ll have to get an updated pic to show ya but it’s well on its way to be wall to wall of bud.

Yeah, again this is all experimental. But, from what I have read is that the UV/IR from a fall sun is really good for rapid trichromatic production. And people often substitute it in some grows. Also, bear in mind these will be the only lights in the room but also for only the next day and a half. I will definitely post some pics tomorrow and right before harvest of how they are reacting.

I had that light earlier this grow but, only on my other smaller plant. Since it was way shorter I could focus the light just on her. And I will say even with less flowering time she produced twice as many trichomes that her taller older sister. The light was acting as a supplement to my sf-4000 for my other plant, which is the only difference than what I am doing now.

This light is not only adjustable for intensity but also for spectrum it is a really cool little light. I can actually bring this all the way to red, or purple, or blue, or anything in between and is meant to grow aqua plants and macro algae for aquariums.


thanks for the compliment I am following your grow as well and your doing way better than I did.

wish me luck as the experiment begins now! Lol

And the "Rivers" ran red with blood. That's going to be some apocalyptically good weed. Lets hope for no swarms of locusts in the next 48 hours.

Day 96: Well folks these are the end days for River Song and the last photos of her before harvest time.

So far I see no real advantage to the UV/IR but I can’t see to well with all that red light. I will get some pics of her when I take her out of the tent.

Been debating on harvesting tonight depending on my weekend plans changing or not. I would like to wait until tomorrow if possible though.

So last flower day random quick sucky photos. Again I will try to get better ones at harvest for her final modeling gig.

First this bud laying against my exhale bag is as long as my forearm and as wide as my hand. Huge I tell you!

Day 97: HARVEST DAY! 🪓🪓🌲🌲

So far I am only a third way through harvesting and trimming River. I am sitting at 23.5 ounces wet with as minimal stems as I could and all larf removed. I have been trimming and tearing down my tent since 11am… I am so stoned and so tired… anyway here are some pictures…




This is a Vivosun tent box a little over 3 feet long.

Round two. Ding! Ding!

more is it round 9 if the rounds are hours total so far…

no real huge buds but very decent this round. I didn’t get much for pics but I got more weights to share. I got another 20.8 ounces wet from this round. I haven’t weighed any larf yet that will be last.

I still have one more really full box to do and I am guessing it will be around 30 ounces but we will see.

One more question... salt/pepper/siracha? What kind of harvest technique is this and where can I sign up?

HARVEST UPDATE: 🪓🪓🌲🌲

So at the end of a 14 hour trim marathon yesterday. Here are the totals for ms. River Song.

2485g / 82.83oz wet good dense buds.
423g / 14.1oz wet larfy concentrate buds

I would Recommend you get help trimming, make sure you eat something, and take breaks as needed. That was excruciating almost. My back is messed up my shoulders and hands hurt. Oof. But it was my first time and it was fun to do it all myself. Another must is non latex gloves the vinyl gloves although a bit flimsy were like Teflon to the sticky icky these buds where trying to lay down

I am also really really glad I got the hanging mesh basket and a second metal dry rack, I’m not sure what I would have done without them. The mesh rack came with 4 mesh dry bags that seems to work perfectly to contain all the larfy concentrate buds.

Just a couple before and afters of the bigger buds of the group.
