Here’s a Hindu Kush (/still same age, much looser bud structure but slowly filling in definitely a few weeks to go

I have a tester of the first plant drying as well as a tester of this Hindu Kush I just hung up about 12 hours ago might give it a try with the wife on Thursday

And some blurple pics of all the plants because…. Everyone loves blurple pics lol

I do have to say even though it’s my first grow I can’t complain about these KingLED 1500’s 2x of them in this tent have done very well, candy kush buds are hard as a rock very dense, other candy kush are following right along with the he first one, the Hindu kush’s are looser but much bigger colas sand are still filling out, and the gorilla glue is still young but filling in nicely (middle back plant) in the 1 gallon bucket opposed to the 5 gallon buckets for the other 5 plants, all bases of the plants are even just a big difference in plant sizes even with the same genetics

Alright folks… First chop is done! After 2 days of testing with the wife with quick 2 day dry testers my wife and myself were pleased with the plants effects for us. Can’t wait to try it after a real dry and cure!

I feel successful for my first plant harvested and feel the yield I got from this one plant is more than adequate for my first indoor grow. Can’t wait to see how the other 5 turn out since they now got spread out more in the tent and will have it that way till the next plant is ready then they can get spread out more

I don’t have a scale so total weight can’t be checked wet, but I did a quick wet trim mainly fan leaves and some of the bigger sugar leaves, I know my tent will be a little on the low side for humidity so I kept most of the sugar leaves on for the dry I’ll deal with them for the dry trim (currently at 55%RH) and tent temp is at 75f not much I can do about temp I’ll keep it as low as possible, hopefully it can make it at least 7 days to dry. mini dehumidifier is in the tent on the bottom on low, I’ll check humidity later after the buds start evaporating I’d imagine RH will come up. Also have a 6” clip on fan in the corner facing across the tent at the wall not at the buds.

Also wanted to take a second and thank EVERYONE who has helped me along this first grow to make it successful and enjoyable for me! So happy I have medicine for myself and my wife and I know I’ll have a supply as long as I decide to grow. Much appreciated to all of you for your opinions and just conversations in general, now just to wait for this one to dry and cure… and for the last 5 plants to finish of course!!!

Get PH Up as well. You will undoubtedly go below your target and will then have to use PH Up to get back. It takes some practice to dial it in.
I do agree with having an accurate ph measurement.
Now you want to avoid adjusting it back & forth as much as possible.
You want to get measuring devices called "pipettes " they are very cheap and grat for measuring ph buffers.
Also General hydroponics ph dwn is corrosive & can do more damage than good if mis-used.
It is OK to use if that's wat u have.
Blue Labs Meters all ALLtop of the line & will last a long time, Also they are expensive.
Litmus paper is the way unless you have purchased a high quality ph pen.

Stopped in a local shop on a reservation today to grab some e-cigs on my way to work, saw they had some bongs and shit upstairs so I walked up and they had tents, spider farmer exhausts and lights, bodeiva packs, hanging dry racks, basically everything, then she asked if I wanted to check out the back room so I went back and was in seed glory haha, Barney’s farm, Mephisto’s, DNA, fastbudz and a ton of other breeders she said they just opened the bank up last week haha. So nice I can just walk into a shop now and get seeds, now just to decide what I wanna grow next haha the mephitos runtz was catching my eye as well as the skywalker, now I need to do some strain research haha
