Well how about an update! Still fighting the PM, been doing spray downs every 3-4 days. Last plant on the far side is tricking me daily I’m seeing clumps but then realize they are trichs. I’ll keep on them, the Hindu Kush is close as is the master OG, little tiny plant but looks and smells nice, once I free up some room it’ll be nice, besides that it was watering day, just plain ol water

Couple shots of the candy kush that didn’t flip to flower and the cookies Kush, cookie Kush has had the main 2 tops re-topped and are pulled down, want the lower nodes to catch up and even out then I’ll top again, this time all the tops instead of just the main 2 it’s getting close now, the candy kush as also been tipped as has the Cinderella 99 clone that’s in the small tent just vegging, she’s getting big and has also had all of her main tops topped, no pics of those today though just the main tent

This was a top shot of the same bud, again, will need to take my time and get some better ones

Also does anybody have a good bud wash mix they use? I’ve heard water and peroxide but is that the best option ?

Not only for bugs, but I also had/have a PM problem, This girl will be easy she didn’t seem too bothered with the PM like some of the others did

Well 2 plants came down today, a Hindu Kush and the master OG, removed one of the candy kush’s it had PM all over it again, so she’s out, so there’s still 3 more finishing in there, so I moved all the clones over to the main tent, need to up pot to 3 gallon pots and get them spreading out, clone tent is now the drying tent again,

Due to the PM did a 3 stage bud wash
1st peroxide wash
2nd baking soda / lemon juice wash
3rd clean water wash, here’s pics of the buds after washing and pics of trichs after washing, they both got pulled a bit early, had some amber starting but wanted to pull them before it was too late

Since I had those out the whole tent got emptied, and wiped down with bleach water and then let dry did ceiling, walls, fans, vacuumed tops of lights and wiped down, wiped every wire down lol

And here’s the current setup in the tent

Here’s a bunch of new nodes from topping across 3 of these plants the biggest plant has 16 tops from topping, not counting internodes on those branches so probably more like 25 total tops atm, no I need to decide if I want to top her again as she’s gunna be massive if I don’t do something now. these other plants will need some time to veg before flipping, so now I need to decide if I want to keep that huge one in there, or if once drying is done on the current run move that huge plant into the clone tent, it’s about 3.5’x 4.5’ and almost 7’ tall and see if I can just fill the tent and use my 2x KingLED 1500’s in there over just her, most likely do a first scrog trial, but here’s some node porn 😂

Well the candy kush j put outside is looking Much better today. I’ll give it a few days and check her again for another possible spray down

As for the plants the may got chopped yesterday, there up and drying, looking good so far, 68-70f and 57-60RH is best I can do for the dry tent with the exhaust running at full speed lol RH was 65 for about 8 hours after the bud wash but has evened out at about 58%RH

Just got home from work and flipped the switch to check on them figured if grab a few quick pics

Damn..im a little late but ready for the nxt show..👍
Already in progress 😁 kinda an experiment for me, first photos indoors we will see how it goes, hopefully not a big PM issue like this run had. Gotta say the candy kush this time smells CANDY for sure, smells amazing, can’t wait to get it in jars and curing. Just sprayed down the last 2 autos in the tent, I’m sure there close gotta check trichs. The one that was put outside due to too much pm to deal with indoors has been dealing with some really cold nights the past 2 nights down to 35f, but surprisingly it seems happy still haha.

nice

unfortunate about the PM

gotta keep an eye out daily for pest and such
Problem is getting rid of it once you have it lol, I’ve been trying to keep up with 50/50 peroxide and water on flowering plants just before lights out, and for vegging plants I’ve been hitting them with neem oil, will switch to peroxide and water when they flip to flower.

I defoliated the cookies Kush I saw some PM on her so she got hit with the neem last night once the defoliation was done, in a few days I will defoliate the huge cookies Kush again, I may wait till the autos are done and drying, then bring the candy kush to the dry tent with both my old lights and run her by herself in the whole tent, she’ll have 5’x4’x 7’ high tent To fill out by herself, so probably about another 3 weeks or so and all should be harvested and dry… possibly lol, then I’ll probably make the move over with the candy kush and flip her to 12/12, the other tent I’ll run at 18/6 for at least a few more weeks, I’ll probably up-pot the other 4 plants to 3 gallon containers in about 4 days and let them veg for couple weeks to a month and then flip that tent too when I’m done with this 96 hour work week 😵‍💫

All have been cut down, some had some decent PM on them, discarded anything that was really suspicious and did a wet trim on everything to double check, discarded more probably at least 1/3 is trashed but the rest where all washed with the 3 stage peroxide, then lemon juice and baking soda, then clean water, all are having up drying.

Now moving forward, here we have the cookies Kush and candy kush auto-not-so-auto, that is massive lol, both have been topped twice and have been trained heavily already, then we have the 4 monstercropped clones of Cinderella 99 and a mystery Congo strain, possibly a white widow mixed in, my brother in law just grabbed a bunch and these where the survivors, they need another good month of vegging before we move forward to flower, may do a test and put the candy kush that was supposed to be an autoflower into the other tent and give her both of the KingLED 1500’s and scrog her , she’s defenitly ready to flip,

Everything was defoliated twice already, the candy kush will probably get a defoliation then a good spray down with neem oil then I’ll give her a week and flip her. Just waiting for the buds in that tent to finish drying and then that tent will be empty

Lol yeah I hear ya I wipe down the walls and ceiling and equipment all the time too, just musta been the environment oh well, trying to clear it up on the current plants before flipping to flower, just defoliated the last plant the big ol candy kush, and took off a few random branches that where 6-8” long, soooo, 5 clones planted we’ll see what survives, we’ll see what happens cus I’m planning to have both of my tents at 12/12… hmmm

After defoliation (heavy) the plants where sprayed down with a mixture of 1gallon water, 1 drop dish detergent, 3 tablespoons of water and sprayed on heavy right at lights out , the heavy LST was to spread out tying branches to let the baking soda help, I’ll hit it with neem next week to attack again wanna hit it hard before flipping to flower and hope for the best

Ok went a bit crazy, said I need another fan, so 4 total in the tent, went to family dollar, yeah, they make my favorite fans 😂 20 bucks a pop and I can alter them to the end of the world lol other 2 are having from the ceiling 😂😂, so went to cash out and they ring up as $10.00, I asked if that’s as right, she said yeah so I went and grabbed another one lol. Also ordered a 13 pack of the rope ratchet straps and those came in today so I was able to individually hang to each hanger in the light so I could raise it up to the ceiling almost, can go higher if needed. Then added the 3rd fan at soil level since the plants are on stands. I also added 2 6” ducts in the ceiling and increased the fan to 90% to get the airflow up, also added the mini heater back in to keep temps in the 70’s, gunna fight the hell outta that PM lol. Burly here’s the new setup, gunna put the freebie fan into the other tent

Well this should be good, weather just updated, up to 4 to 6 feet of snow between tomorrow night to Sunday morning… hopefully power doesn’t go out too long, just brought in a cord of wood and gunna put another cord right outside the back door in the morning house is sitting at 83f upstairs and about 67f downstairs, if it drops too far I’ll get the basement stove lit, we’ll see how this storm is. Just went out in the dark and took down the kids trampoline, gotta do an oil change in the morning lol. Start work Friday night I’m guessing either I won’t make it in or I won’t make it home Saturday morning.
