Looks like it will be the staked route just like my last grow. I am using a HLG 135w QB V2 Bspec turned down as low as it goes about 18 inches away.
Yeah that's out of my wheelhouse... no clue what to tell you for settings or distance, but they could use a little more light if they're stretching like that. Just gotta be careful not to give too much more.
It's why I really love T5HO lamps. They're cheap for one, but you really can't burn a plant with one unless it literally touches the bulb. Perfect for clones and seedlings.

Update. I went out of town for 3 days so kind of just left things as is and hoped for the best. Right before I left I watered everything extra and tried to stake and support the sprouts. I made my first critical mistake of this grow (at least that I know of) by accidently killing 1 Velvet Breath when trying to support it. It was because I was in a rush to leave so I also just left it as is even tho chopped the top off.

This is what I came home to on Monday

As I know they are super leggy and I am worried this will cause some issues in the grow, but nothing I can do now. The only one that is not leggy (and fastest developing) is one of the Lemongrabs that was the last bean to break ground.

We are starting to get some roots poking through starter plugs.

The last Velvet alive was the one I transplanted right-side up and it has a serious gangster lean going on and in turn some sideways ass roots.

Lastly I was gone so could not check on things and the temps hot pretty high with a high RH so I think I have mold, no I KNOW I have mold. I hope its just on the wood support I used and now I know never to use wood again. The worst picture was on the dead Velvets stake and subsequently the whole plant was removed.

Mold maybe


Let me know what you guys think.

I guess I will update my original grow that I started this thread for. The Zkit is still throwing some white hairs and slowly bulking still.

As for the SC I did not take and photos because I hate it. It is so frosty but has the worst bud structure I have really ever seen. I take full blame for the growing process I subjected it to, but nonetheless it did not stack and is just long airy leafy branches.

What is the best use of it now?

I want to process the entire plant into concentrates for cooking and do not plan to trim any of it other than maybe 1-2 buds.
-Should I just fresh freeze the entire plant with no drying?
-Should I bubble bag it all?
-Press it?
-Screens?
-Directly decarb all of it and use in cooking extractions (oil, butter, etc.)

I will show you guys some photos tonight at lights on.

Zkit is still flowering and at this rate honestly I think it needs 2 more weeks. It is still throwing a ton of while pistils and I did my best to get close up shots of the trics and I really see no amber at all yet.

Th SC is done in my opinion as far as the trics are concerned but just gave me awful bud production / structure. I moved my seedlings and a plant I won into a closet as a make shift veg chamber. I am planning on moving the SC to their old veg cabinet once my second fan and carbon filter get here Wednesday.

My shotgun fell on the Green Crack plant and smooshed it up a bit so I took a cutting from a damaged branch and tried to clone it.

I am also noticing some black marks on the leaves of the Green Crack. I won this plant and picked it up 5 days ago. All I have done is water it with 6.5 Ph water, but I did give it bad light situations so maybe that would play a factor.

I posted the pictures of the damage on discord and I had a breeder identify the issue and detailed the situation with no input on my behalf. He was like oh that looks like light deprivation issues. Sure enough I went away for 3 days and my lady did not remember to keep the light on, then I come home and blast it with the 135 HLG.

Sure enough just like he said it would get worse with the light so I turned it down and will build it back up.

I used some LST clips that were great. They really helped to spread out the plant. I also flushed the living hell out of it to try and bring the runoff PPM down.

The seedlings and single clone all seem to be doing ok other than the one Velvet breath and the fact they all stretched too much initially.
