I've been pulling a few leaves off but I can't bring myself to strip them down like I see some do. they're starting to smell nice, I did a little bottom pruning and a few small buds that won't make it to the light, sticky sweet fingers I took one of the bigger under branches to my desk for a closer look and I keep putting it to my nose for a whiff of Bubble Bomb.

The girls are looking good although I still see purple narrow stems on the BB so I'll have to keep an eye on her and give her just water & Epsom Salts next feed to see if she clears up at all.

I saw a portable scrog net made from PVC, someone on here posted & I liked the idea but after pricing the pvc and fitting at over $100 per unit I decided to try making a similar set up with Pine. I cut a 2 x 10 into 5 - 4ft posts. To lighten it up. I turned the posts on my belt sander today, about 1 1/2 hrs & I've a bit of hand sanding to do but I think I have what I want for the corners. I'll drill holes in the posts and put dowelling or pine strips for the side pieces. I have 1 large pan on wheels I'll attach a piece of peg board ( seeing as I have a ton of it ) to the bottom and bolt or screw the posts down. If it works out I may make a few more, 5 would be perfect for my hps grown girls.

I have a good crop of Ghost peppers and a keen eye can see a gsc male hanging over onto the peppers, not sure what I'll do with them, maybe a paste, dry a few for seeds, give a few away, can't eat them really too hot for me other than a bit for fun. Maybe on potstickers I like a chilly hot sauce on them maybe I can make a ghost pepper sauce...lol....not likely...just fun to grow...

I put together the mobile scrog I made yesterday & today with a little hot glue and 6 screws. I still have to stain it but I'll let the glue dry and I can sand off any over glue tomorrow.

wow...when will these be available at Amazon?...very nice PC
I like monkey I see I can copy, not my idea I priced out pvc and went nope...pine it is....really easy soft wood to work with and I've not done any wood working in a while, when I saw them I thought it might help me with the drooping I get with my plants near the end. If it works out, I'll make another. I could use 5 - 6 but I don't think I have the patients to turn 24 more poles...that's like work, I'm retired I trying hard not to find more work😁

Keep going before you blow your nose and cough up a lung should beable to fit at least 4 in that 5x5 tent.
It's not going in the tent, I'll use it for the Alaska Thunderfuck under my 1000w hps just outside the tent. I think I'm going to take it off the wheels though and put it on a milk crate so it stands the same height as the rest of my girls. I don't know why I bothered turning down the post though, I can make them quicker without all the dust just by using 2x2" posts sanded down a bit. I'm trying to wait until the 15th to flip them but I'm not sure I've the room to hold them 4 more days....

I couldn't wait any longer, my ATF grew into the light & the rest were close behind, I put them under my 1000 watt hps turned to 12/12.

I built another mobile scrog yesterday with the remaining 2 x 10 piece of pine. I didn't turn down the posts so its a bit chunky. I dropped my 2 biggest plants onto them, the ATF and FruityOG. The other 3 I put on soda crate stands. This gives me lots of room I could easily drop another plant in and still have room.

In the tent the GSC's are both looking good a bit of leave curl I probably had the dimmer too high, its at about 85% and most buds are between 18" and 6" the Gelato in the corner just won't stay down, I fed the GSC photo today 6/5/15/1tsp Monster Bloom/ 1tsp Floralicious and 2ml ph up. I dropped the grow 1 ml and upped the bloom by 3 ml. This is at week 4 in flower.

After I get up I give a call out the bathroom window " Where's my boys" and they come charging into the house from there outdoor enclosure to see me. The Big guy Coal just comes waddling in when he wants a treat. Mornings are fun with the 2 young guys best buddies Qnight & Dusk chasing and wrestling each other while Coal just sits on my foot rest watching the show... MY 3 Boys😍

Nov 14,
Its a good thing I put my girls to bed at night, I checked my veg closet right at lights out and ooops I got a hanger. I've a Gelato & GG#4 about 4 months old in a 1 gallon fabric pot and as I checked the Gelato was looking sad, fkin fabric pots dry out so quick. I've kept the plants in 1 gal pots for mothers? I don't know I've just kept them alive and I keep pinching of the tops off while others grow up and get turned. Any ways I gave her a quick drink and she'll bounce back.

A few more pics at lights out
