Just came from turning on the lights, the girls are starting to get frosty.
When I was making my foray into growing outdoors, I read that cannabis only needs about six hours of direct sunlight daily. Your lights aren't sunlight but that still applies. They should be fine with shorter days, so long as they're able to get an uninterrupted night.Hi guys, I'm a little worried, blackouts are non stop during the light cycle sometimes plants are probably only getting about 6-8 hours of light daily, and when the light goes off those emergency lightbulbs I have been using only last about 30-40 minutes at maximum then they dim down rapidly and they will stay on very very dim, at less than 10% light until the power comes back or I remove them for the start of the dark cycle a 7pm. Will this hurt my plants in any way? The light cycle is all screwed up and the blackouts last about 4-6 hours.
Dark cycle is never interrupted.
These are the plants today.View attachment 2071831View attachment 2071832View attachment 2071833View attachment 2071834View attachment 2071835View attachment 2071836
I got a little creative yesterday and today and decided to fabricate some reflective border housing for the light so that it would concentrate more on the plants and disperse less to the sides. So I went to a friend's warehouse and with his permission i Strategically Transferred Equipment to a Alternate Location and I gotta say I'm pretty happy with the outcome, because right now I could use all the light I can get.When I was making my foray into growing outdoors, I read that cannabis only needs about six hours of direct sunlight daily.

They probably won't yield as much. But it looks to me like you're on track for a good yield though, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
One thing seems to be true: If you can grow in Cuba you can grow anywhere!
Thanks man, it's been an uphill battle, hopefully they stay healthy and on track, I would hate to have a extended flowering period because of these outages for now I gotta make do with the cards I'm being delt as they come.good luck bud hope they do you well in the end
Keep plugging along dude, we're pulling for you. You deal with a lot of adversities and you're adjusting when to pivot. I'm looking forward to your success!Thanks man, it's been an uphill battle, hopefully they stay healthy and on track, I would hate to have a extended flowering period because of these outages for now I gotta make do with the cards I'm being delt as they come.
I honestly want to make some changes and repairs on the house where the plants are in so I can't have workers in the same house as the plants, so after this harvest I'll wait a few weeks until the repairs are done and then I'll plant 2 more ladies. That will also give me enough time to set up the solar power kit, bring the AC infinity ventilation kit and I might even construct a grow room from wood inside one of the bed rooms and move the plants out of the bathroom with the ventilation system here and the solar kit installed I might also buy another light to be able to have 4 plants instead of 2.By now I'd normally have the next set of moms sprouting.
I would expect to see some foxtailing if nitrogen is pushing it too hard so I think you're in good shape. Also leaf tips look good.I decided to feed them today since they were in need of a watering and honestly I dosaged the 17-17-17 to about 6/6/6 I know it's a very high Nitrogen dose but since I have 4 maybe 5 more weeks left in flower I think the plants will be ok and won't feed anymore for the next two weeks. Just going to water them normally from now on, and depending on how I see the plants react to this feed I will either feed again in the final 3 weeks with this same Nutes but less dosage or I will use the foliar spray nutes that contain micro.
So far the plants look good, some lower leafs are a little crunchy and some have burns on them, probably from the high N nutes but it's unavoidable at this point, just going to feed as little as possible from now on.

Holy Shhhh... Seriously? 6 oz from a 100w light with all the issues I have had?I will be the first to take a guess......6.3ozs.....nicely dried and cured!!
I don't think I'll be able to wait for curing to be done to smoke I will most likely start burning right after drying, I will put it to cure tho, but since I don't have any bud right now I don't think I will be able to wait.I will be the first to take a guess......6.3ozs.....nicely dried and cured!!
