It feels good to finally have identified all the males.

Not too big of an update other than the one interloper male was weeded out.

This loupe is amazing for identifying things.

Here's an up- skirt shot of the ladies.

My ocd is slightly triggered not having all the pots lined up, but the canopy is all that matters.

Another boring update.

SCRoG is a nice easy way to manage multiple growth tips. I have a few strings to tie things up, did some super cropping too.

I'm worried I might not have enough vertical space. I'm which case idk what to do.

Thats a nice and even canopy.
Done scrog many times?
I guess your light cant be dimmed down?

Thanks, actually this is my first scrog but I used to hard core LST back in the day so I'm very comfortable with managing the balance of each shoot.

Light is not dimmable and honestly I'd like to add another light. It's a 315w CMH. Not too bright.

Ah, I have been looking at cmh myself. But went with led before I knew much about cmh. I dont have any helpful hints for you. Unfortunately. Other than bending sideways. But that might not be an option

Started growing back when Overgrow was around.
How far back, i was there 2002 - 2004 or so, until they got very commercial for a while. Without the help of a grower named Jamesgang, back then, i'd never have gotten a good start. The man had the patience of a saint dealing with a noob who made far more than their share of mistakes.

Nice and frosty, looks very tasty!

Around that time, yeah. I think I fell off OG after 02 or 03.

Here's more frost!

I only have 8 more inches above the light if I attach it directly to the top bar and the tops are already 18" from the bulb. I really hope these MAC live up to their reputation for minimal stretch and I don't see too much more vertical growth.

Just some general shots.

The autos are starting to finish 1 by 1. Down to the final 3 out of 6. Can't wait to harvest these so I can get my space back. I'm considering splitting the 6 i have in 1 tent up into both tents as they are super crowded. Might get a better yield and less risk of light stress if I can spread out the tops a bit.

What do you think? It would mean that I need a third tent for veg on my next run. Lol I'm in for like 3k already this is getting expensive.

Harvested all the autos. I was just tired of looking at them honestly and want to move 3 of the 6 giant MAC into the second tent because they are just too crowded in there.

This is 4/6 plants as the previous 2 finished earlier and now are curing.

I ended up putting the second 315w CMH into the mac tent raised as high as possible. Height issue is resolved... for now.

Light issue definitely resolved!

Please see my new thread exclusively for this MAC grow for future posts as I'll be hanging my hat on this thread.

Both lights are cmh lights? I thought one was hps because of size and appearance
Yes both are CMH. The one in back is a Phillips 3100k and the one in the front is a vivosun supposedly 3000k but clearly the vivosun is much more orange and the Phillips is much more blue. More than I'd expect 100k difference would make. 🤔

And thank you for the compliments
