First post!
Setting up a new flowering room after taking a year off due to PM issues.

Currently have 4 mothers of:
Brothers Grimm pineapple
In-house Genetics Sugar Cane #5
Empire Breeding co Jezus Juice (pin joint pheno)
Gorilla Butter

Took 40 clones 2 days ago, 10 of each.

2- 6’x3’ tables
2- 400w Szhlux LED per table
18 on each table
9 clones of each strain per sq meter
1 gal pots of coco

Each table gets a 30gal res and a pvc drip manifold with 2gph dripper (1 per pot)

Seems to be mixed reviews on these lights, but they have served me incredibly well in the past.
Will update when clones root! Still have to set up ventilation for the room.

Here’s some photos of the last run under the Szhlux 600w.

Thank you! Always been a fan of LOS outdoors, but switched to salt based nutrients around 2016 and never looked back
I'm not sure it I'm just overly sensitive, but I swear I can feel the difference in the smoke from salt based nutes to organic. Same with salt nic vapes versus pg/vg. I don't knock any way though, as long as the plants are happy, it's all good in my books😉

We’ve got roots! Planted all 36 two days ago. One strain (Jezus Juice)did not do well through the cloning process, it’s been a year and a half since I’ve cloned and I’m a bit rusty. Hoping they’ll pull through. If not, I’ll flower the mother plant instead.

The new 8” exhaust and filter will be here today, and lights will be here Sunday!

Plumbing in a water line into the room this weekend and getting the drip systems made.
Pico’s drip manifold from ICmag back in 2007 has served me well with 2gph drip emitters, this is going to be a great run!

Clones have been in solo cups of coco for 5 days now, and ALMOST all of them are doing great!

Has anyone had clones look like this before? (Last two pics)
A half dozen of the Jezus juice clones are wilting horribly, I took a new batch of them and will be tossing these ones if they don’t improve.

Lights came, and got one of the tables set up last night.

Clones have been in veg for two weeks now. Starting to see some drastic differences between each strains growth patterns.

-Brother Grimm pineapple was the first to root, and is an extremely vigorous grower. Throwing out a wide, branchy stature.

-Gorilla Butter is quite tall and lanky. Even after topping, it’s hesitant to bush out. Was warned that this one will get extremely tall and stretch a lot.

-In house Sugarcane #5 is another beauty. Clones are looking stout, and branching out very uniformly. The mother is a BEAST and I may flower it alongside of this grow in the 4x4.

Empire breeding Co Jezus Juice is a crowd favorite, and for some reason (my own fault probably) the clones of this strain just didn’t do as great as the others. Transplanting to 1gal pots of coco on Monday and getting the drip system in place.

Ventilation for the room will be a 800CFM fan paired with an 8” x 22” filter, center to the basement.

Finally, both tables filled, drip manifolds almost done.

Left to right under each light:

9- Brothers Grimm Pineapple
9- In house Gentics Sugar Cane #5
9- Empire breeding Co Jezus Juice
9- Gorilla Butter (peanut butter breath x gorilla glue #4)

1gal pots of 70/30 coco/perlite.

Love these drippers, have been using PICO’s drip manifold design (2007) since around 2013 and it’s served me well for the past ten years.

Just finished week 1 of flowering. Things are going pretty damn smoothly. Pineapple and sugarcane are hungry for nitrogen right now, so hand feeding them a mix that’s got a little extra.

Any guesses on yield? Shooting for 4 pounds, hard to say at this point but it’s looking somewhere between 3-4.

Temps are staying 74-78°f during the day and low 70s at night. Humidity is staying 55-60%

First time using Floraflex nutrients, and I’m loving it.

Flowering day 15, first day of week 3 and the stretch is UNREAL on the gorilla butter. Tables have filled out quite nicely and it’s looking like it’s going to be a great run! Things are going smooth as can be.

Thinking of doing a pheno hunt on In house Platinum Kush Breath and Elite Cut Genetics Black Cherry Punch

Week 3 started yesterday. Definitely underestimated the stretch on gorilla butter and Jezus juice. Going to need shorter steel cable hangers as I’ve got the lights as high as they can go. Starting to really take off with bud development

Finally some feedback! It is getting crazy, and I should have taken the warning about GB’s stretch more seriously. Today is day 23, and I’ll be taking clones for the next run within the next week or so. Definitely not running 4 strains this next run. One strain per table from here on out

Looking great my friend!!!
This is clone wilting, many possible reasons, probably the callus didn't formed in time and/or stem cut got infection preventing water to keep going trough.
Or they got underwatered and stood too dry for too long.
