Is that a mono tub i see?
Are you talking about the green tub outside the tent? That's the 30 gal reservoir I decided to use. Easier to acquire and cheaper than a 30 gal food grade drum. When I bought the pond pump I didn't realize it had a diverter valve so I don't really need to move the rez to empty and refresh. Just attach a hose to the other port, turn the diverter knob and pump out the old solution into the vegetable garden so that the veggies get a shot of fertilizer.

Need to order one of these to help keep the nutrient solution fresh and aeriated. I'm too lazy to drag out my water chiller and air stones, plus I think it'll be a bit of overkill, so this should work almost as well as far as oxygenating the water and keeping the solution organics mixed in the water and not sitting on the bottom of the reservoir.


I had mentioned that the two plants I had moved outside were girls since they were both showing bract calyxs but one turned out to be a boy so.....yippeee.....more GG4 seeds to keep for future grows or to develop moms with. You can also see how the phenotype, left on its own without training, stretches! The girl is already showing preflower pistils so it looks like flip will be relatively speedy!!😁

Ready for lift off.....

Flower time 8 26


Fed and light schedule changed to 12/12. I gave them a couple of bloom solution waterings then a couple of grow solution waterings to start the flower transition so they should have plenty of both in the soil. The outdoor plants flipped pretty quickly so I expect these to do the same. Can't wait for pre-flower pistil formation. Hoping none of them herm or shoot balls. From what I saw they should all be girls but until they go through the hormonal change going to flower I can't be 100% sure. The only downfall to going from seed rather than clone.

SON. OF. A. BITCH.!!!!😤

Had to leave on a business trip and came back to ALL BALLS!!!!🤬😭

I guess the silver lining is I'll have lots of seeds!!!😣

DAMMIT! As much as I don't like feminized seeds I may go that route this time or get a clone and grow it and take cuts from it.

I knew there was a chance this could happen as it's happened to me before but not ALL of them with balls!!!

If anyone needs GG4 seeds hit me up!!! LOL!

I'm gonna ring up one of my buddies out in Cali and see if he'll mail me a clone. Shouldn't take more than a few weeks to get it ready for cuts and I can take around 10 and pick the 6 best.

😭 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭 😭 😣😣😤😤😭😭

ALL BALLS!!!

All Balls


Well....not ALL.....2 were females but they've surely been pollinated with the amount of air moving through the tent. I went ahead and unwound all the males and repositioned the females. Maybe I get lucky and they didn't get pollinated but that's like a college student not getting laid on spring break!!!😄

I really feel like if I don't learn from what you just did I am doomed to repeat it. Can you sex regs in solo cups?

As far as I know the only way to know is to flower them. I've heard of taping a node with black tape doing a 12/12 schedule which will show either balls or boobs at that location but other than that the only other way to guarantee females is clones from a female mother.

Unfortunately I don't have room for a separate mother chamber so I may have to depend on my buddies out cali way to mail me clones. I have a female outside that got pollinated so I should have lots of GG4 beans in a couple months. I may plant around 20 and see if I can isolate a female and figure some way to keep her from flowering now that the days are starting to get shorter out my way.

there is something about nature with temp and humidity to determine more females to males..
i’ve done it a few times and seems to work..
have the look it up to get what’s what..
but i only soak seeds in a mix of water and h2o2 (about 7% strength) for 10-14 hours than i plant in tiny shot glass solo cups so when they are in the cups is when you would have that temp and humidity within range to hopefully promote females

Would love some feedback on this as I'll be the proud owner of hundreds of GG4 seeds in a couple months!!! 😄

All of my specs have been pretty stable so I don't think environment promoted more males but then again this is GG4 so they are herm prone! 🤷‍♂️

14 days from 12/12

Current tent conditions with lights on:

Temp - 76.3*
Humidity - 58%
VPD - 1.12
