Set up two more AC Infinity 6" fans, those two oscillate. I put those in the middle and the four other fans I have in the corners. Fed the 3 gal plants 2000 mL each of Ancient Earth @ 2 mL/L, B-52 @ 2 mL/L, Kelp Me Kelp You @ 10 mL/gal, Hygrozyme @ 2.5 mL/L, Grandma Enggy's F-1 @ 2.5 mL/L, 6.3 pH solution.

Trained the Flintstones Mother plant a little bit and defoliated the big fan leaves in the middle of the canopy to get better light to the smaller growth underneath.
20220915 185901

Also fed the 5 gal plants with the same solution plus 20 mL of Iguana Juice Grow which dropped the pH to 5.6. And I trained the 10 gal plants some more. They didn't get fed today because they still don't need it since being transplanted and soaking the medium.

I snapped one of the plants at the stalk where I initially topped it. I put some painter's tape around it and it healed up fine. The plant's still alive as of this morning.

20220917 114148

Two plants stand out to me at this point.
#7
20220917 114217

#11 I think has the best structure of the 12.
20220917 114228

We'll see how they do in the Flower cycle. Here's the Flintstones Mother plant trained in it's new home.
20220917 114552

The M.A.C. Mother plant and some veggies on the left I'm gonna try growing in here as well. Spinach, Lettuce, Swiss Chard, and Green Onion.
20220917 114523

The clones are looking a bit better and they are starting to root. I'm gonna plant whichever plants have roots shooting out the bottom today. I think I wasn't keeping the greenhouse moist enough. I've been spraying them heavier the last couple of days with the same Clonex solution and they seem to be liking it.

The Colombian Miracle plants as of this morning. We're at Day 28 of the Veg cycle!

Last day of the Veg cycle for the plants. I'm pretty happy with how the first run in the new house is going so far. We had a few hiccups along the way, but the plants are in good shape going into Flower. I set up two more HLG 350Rs which is a much more economical option right now than my original plan of buying another tent and four HLG Scorpion R-Spec lights. That will be down the road. I also set up my AC Infinity Cloudline S6 ventilation system which comes with a pretty sweet controller that I can access with my phone, cool stuff.
20220918 175424

I learned about a technique called "schwazzing" last year where you defoliate just about every leaf except the top two nodes on Day 1 and Day 21 of Flower. I wasn't a believer until I saw the benefits. The plants bounce back quickly, you pretty much eliminate an environment for any powdery mildew to grow, and more energy is sent to the valuable flower sites. The last day of Veg going into Flower is the best time to do the first major defoliation. It gives the plants the extended rest period and triggers the flowering hormones which starts to allow the plants to accept more light. At first I thought this would kill the plants, but if you think about it, it does make sense and works surprisingly well.
The 12 Colombian Miracle plants. This is where the phenohunt starts to get interesting!

20220918 175307

I also transplanted all 12 clones into their 0.5 gal containers. They all rooted. The 10 gal plants got fed today before being defoliated. Ancient Earth @ 2 mL/L, Kelp Me Kelp You @ 2.5 mL/L, Grandma Enggy's F-1 @ 2.5 mL/L, and Hygrozyme @ 2.5 mL/L pH 6.3 they each got 5000 mL.

Not sure if it needs reinforcement. It is more like a 10×10 room than a tent. AC Infinity makes some high quality stuff. What would you recommend @Ponky ? First time using this equipment.

Well it looks pretty decent. But I've used ½" conduit to support tents with good success. If the walls cave in too much I tend to put a few in. But that tent looks pretty well made.

The good sign is that it's easy to move the support beams with the lights on it. There's not too much tension/weight on anything it seems like to me and none of the walls are caving. I'm gonna run with it for now and see how it goes. It is a very well made tent.

We're at Day 5 of Flower. Fed the Colombian Miracle plants 2000 mL each and the 5 gal M.A.C. and Flintstones plants 3000 mL each of a 6.0 pH solution of Iguana Juice Bloom @ 4 mL/L, Ancient Earth @ 2 mL/L, Bud Ignitor @ 2 mL/L, Sensizym Organic @ 2 mL/L, Big Mike's OG Tea @ 2 mL/L, Bud Candy @ 2 mL/L, Grandma Enggy's F-1 @ 2.5 mL/L. I was gonna try and not use the Iguana Juice Bloom, but the plants look like they're hungry so I'm throwing it into the solution this time. I topdressed all of the bags with Wiggle Worm earthworm castings. The temp and humidity are near perfect with the lights on (82-85°F & 70-75%) and I'm trying to figure out how to maintain the RH throughout the night. It's spiking to 85-90%. I have a bigger dehumidifier in there for tonight. We'll see how it does.

And the four 10 gal plants are looking the best in the room. They got transplanted into more soil with more food and are looking better than the other plants.

There's only 2 males out of the 10 plants.

#10
20220925 154950

20220925 155009

All of the female plants smell very similar and have a strong mango smell with a good stem rub. I'm gonna give the plants another week before I get rid of any of the female plants. I'l give the males a couple more days, pick one, and get rid of both of those plants. I don't want any seeds right now, I have plenty of those already.
Here's the Flintstones and M.A.C. plants in the 5 gal bags.
20220925 155307

And the best looking plants in the room. The one M.A.C. clone and the three Flintstones clones in their 10 gal bags.
20220925 155328

20220925 155342

I also fed the 12 clones 250 mL of a 6.2 pH solution of Wholly Mackerel @ 15 mL/4 L, Kelp You Kelp Me @ 10 mL/4 L, Ancient Earth @ 2 mL/L, Grandma Enggy's F-1 @ 2.5 mL/L, and Orca @ 1 mL/4 L.

The 4 healthy Flintstones clones in my starter dome. I'm using the Root Riot cubes for the first time and liking them a lot. I had a Clone King aeroponics cloner that literally worked once and the pump failed on me when I tried to use it the second time so I'm going with plugs moving forward. I cut them with a pair of clean scissors and use a clean X-Acto knife to cut a 45° angled cut at the bottom and trim off all the leaves up to the top two nodes. I put them in water immediately after cutting them and then dipped them in Clonex rooting gel. I spray them twice a day with the 1 tsp/1 qt Clone solution. I soak the cubes with a solution of Hygrozyme @ 2.5 mL/L, Orca @ 1 mL/gal, and Clonex @ 5 mL/L.
Why do you cut the leaves like that? Just asking out of curiosity. They are looking healthy ✌

@The_word The idea behind cutting the leaves when you clone is stress to the plant that forces energy into the roots being produced. There's also less leaf matter in the process. You typically should cut clones fairly small to give them the best chance to root. These recent clones I took would look healthier if I was able to keep the humidity up. When you cut the clones, they no longer have any roots so they are solely relying on their stomata to accept any water. I've learned that keeping the humidty as close to 100% as possible is the most important part to taking healthy clones. Obviously clean scissors are important, but without water the plants will die.

Day 10 of Flower, fed the 3 gal plants 2000 mL each yesterday and 1000 mL today, the 5 gal plants got 3000 mL yesterday and 1000 mL today, and the 10 gal plants got 6000 mL today. The solution was 6.3 pH Iguana Juice Bloom @ 4 mL/L, Big Mike's OG Tea @ 2 mL/L, Ancient Earth @ 2 mL/L, Bud Ignitor @ 2 mL/L, Big Bud @ 2 mL/L, Sensizym Organic @ 2 mL/L, Bud Candy @ 2 mL/L, Grandma Enggy's F-1 @ 2.5 mL/L, Voodoo Juice @ 2 mL/L, Piranha @ 2 mL/L, and Tarantula @ 2 mL/L. Added in Big Bud for these feedings and I also topdressed 4 tbsp of Coast of Maine Fish Bone Meal on the 3 gal and 5 gal plants and 6 tbsp on the 10 gal plants.
20220928 180005

The dehumidifier was able to keep up last night and kept the RH at 70% vs 85-90%. I have a bigger dehumidifier for when I need it. 70% will be too high in a couple weeks, but it's a good number for right now.

20220928 181913

These are my favorite three phenos through the first 10 days. There's a lot of similarities especially smell so far, strong mango aroma, but there's only one plant that looks like #12 does which I think may be the best overall plant of the bunch.
20220928 181943

20220928 181952

#7 has more of an Indica structure and this strain is supposed to be mostly Sativa. This plant has been one of the healthiest looking of the bunch every step of the way.
20220928 182001

20220928 182014

And #4 and #5 have the most Sativa genetics in them. I think #4 looks better than #5.
20220928 182038

The plants are drinking more than I anticipated and with the optimal temp and RH 82-85°/70%, VPD 0.95-1.0, and PPFD 850-1100 they are trying to grow fast and I think need more food so I'm going to continue to push the nutes. They always seem to look better the day after I feed them. I just think they need more. Figuring out a more consistent environment overnight will improve overall plant health as well.

We're at day 13 of Flower. I got rid of the two males yesterday and I think after 12 days of Flower there was a clear alpha.
#9 looks good
20220930 140606

20220930 140619

20220930 140630

#10 is the clear winner. Amazing growth in only 12 days.

I looked all over these plants and didn't see any open pollen sacs. I was super careful taking them out of the tent. I should be good. I don't need anymore seeds right now, just looking to produce some high quality organic flower and find the best female to keep as a Mother plant. Here is the new arrangement of plants. We're down to 10 female Colombian Miracle plants now. I moved a couple of the lights up a few inches.
20220930 172420

20220930 172435

The 5 gal M.A.C. and Flintstones plants don't look all that great.
20220930 172452

And the 10 gal plants look super happy. The M.A.C. plant is the front left plant that's taller than the other three. Not an impressive plant in the Veg cycle by any means, but it produces some of the best flowers on any Cannabis plant out there. Really excited to see how that does over the next month and a half.
20220930 172513

Yesterday I fed the 3 gal plants 3000 mL each of a 6.3 pH solution of Iguana Juice Bloom @ 4 mL/L, Ancient Earth @ 2 mL/L, Bud Ignitor @ 2 mL/L, Sensizym Organic @ 2 mL/L, Big Mike's OG Tea @ 2 mL/L, Bud Candy @ 2 mL/L, Grandma Enggy's F-1 @ 2.5 mL/L, Voodoo Juice @ 2 mL/L, Piranha @ 2 mL/L, and Tarantula @ 2 mL/L. The 5 gal plants got 4000 mL each and today I fed the 10 gal plants 6000 mL each of the same solution.

The Colombian Miracle clones got fed 250 mL each of a 6.3 pH solution of Orca @ 2 mL/4L, Wholly Mackerel @ 15 mL/4L, Kelp Me Kelp You @ 10 mL/4L, Hygrozyme @ 2.5 mL/L, Ancient Earth @ 2 mL/L, and Grandma Enggy's F-1 @ 2 mL/L. 13 days in their 0.5 gal containers. I'm running a small humidifier in there that runs on it's own humidistat. Trying to keep the tent at about 75° and 85% RH. It's been pretty consistent for the most part.

Day 14 of Flower. Gave the 10 Colombian Miracle plants 3000 mL each of 6.3 pH water.
20221002 184627

20221002 184647

Defoliated the Flintstones plants quite a bit because they were getting too dense and blocking out light to some flower sites.
20221002 184720

I haven't taken a single leaf off of the M.A.C. or Colombian Miracle plants since the last day of Veg major defoliation.

Day 15 of Flower. Gave the 5 gal plants 5000 mL each of 6.3 pH water. Lollipoped all of the plants. Pretty happy with how everything is growing except the two 5 gal plants. They are clones that were cut in the month of 8/21 and did get moved 40 mins to their new home. I thought they would respond better to the lights being flipped, but not so much. If I get any decent flower off of the two of them I would be happy.
