Similar to how we binge TV shows now, I'm dropping this grow on the Farm at the beginning of Week 8. The fun part. When the grow concludes I'll post my notes as well.

Five Girls
2 Kosher Kush feminized, generic seeds bought from dispensary 3 years ago (1 showing ruderalis traits)
1 Runtz feminized, from Gelatoseeds.com
2 unknown bagseed from a friends flower, looks Bubba-ish? Heavy and dense purple flower

3g pots, HF/OF/Perlite.
Veg Leaf VPD- .9-1.4 400w MH 6000k most of Veg, 1000w MH 4000k 2 weeks including 1st week of flower
Flower Leaf VPD- 1.1-1.4 1000w HPS, 5/13 replaced 400w HPS, 5/16 replaced 1000w MH

First day of flower, 3/27

Family pic, lights off on Day 58. Yesterday UVB was added, running all day. Looks like Purple 1 and 2 will finish first, possibly by next weekend.

Kosher 1 fading fast and getting chunky. New calyx growth dramatically slowed down last 48 hours. Another week or two left

Kosher 2 (ruderalis) I'm rather annoyed with this one now, so slow to finish, I really need the tent space! lol. Fade just appeared yesterday, bout time. Brown leaf spots is salt excess, only been fed minimally once since 5/1. Who knows how much longer, just about at 100 days from sprout now, at least another week, probably closer to two.

Runtz was slow to flower and still looks like it will finish last, thats ok though. She'll have more room and light soon. Probably 3 weeks left. Leaf curling because its been near the fan most of the time. No fade yet

Purple 2 top cola. Orange hairs are sucking back into calyx, almost there

Very nice grow man, Looks deadly! It's amazing what you can do with that much light in a little tent. Well done.

And hey man, happy to help! Helping people achieve success is what this place is all about! Ok... and maybe a little showing off the fruits of our labour. But mostly helping each other out!

Trimmed the lower branches and put into brown paper bag. The rest of the it needs to hang for a couple more days, flowers are larger. Sticky and smells like the color purple lol. Might be ready for a sample this weekend

Next is Cake N Chem from Greenpoint seeds, plan is to scrog 2 in 5g pots.

Seedlings are in solo cups now, then will move to 1g trade pots until the winners are chosen to move to 5g.
