Thanks so much Spider Farmer for this great new light. Apologies to anyone who expected this earlier. I had a very late-finishing pheno on my last grow that pushed this back later than I would have like. So without further ado...
Great new light!

This time around I'm going with the freebie theme and growing Fizzy Drank fems from Exotic Genetix. One of my three bonus seeds wasn't viable but the other two did fine. Soaked them for 14hrs then paper towels. Both popped within 24 hrs (9/8) and spent 4 days or so in rapid rooters before going into gallon pots in Happy Frog soil with 20% added perlite. There they have sat for the last month under a cheap blurple in a vacant shower stall until they were topped a week ago. So far they have just been getting tap water ph'd to 6-6.5.

Pictures reflect that they look a little droopy and may be having a little problem settling in. Lights are at 24 inches but I turned power down to 40% and will increase gradually. The plan is to get them nice and happy before moving them to 10 gallon pots and screening them. They also look like they might want to feed so I plan to start this week. Following the freebie theme I'm giving a sample pack of Nectar for the Gods a whirl and supplementing it to follow the Greek regimen.

I'm excited to do this grow. I have little to no idea what I'm doing and welcome any and all input. I'm an expert at smoking but growing is new. My first grow I barely touched because I was afraid it would spontaneously die. In graduate school in the South friends would only half joke about having me come over and take care of their yards if they had a kudzu infestation. Black thumb was an understatement.My wife thought I needed another hobby to fill all the extra time so this was it. Imagine my surprise when nothing blew up. This'll be my fifth grow. Thanks for taking a look and let me know if you have any questions or if there's something I idiotically left out!

Girls looking happy with their new home so I moved them into NFTG #4 soil (prewatered) and watered them in with NFTG Herc and Gaia 1tbsp/gal with water ph’d to 6.3. Once they perk up a little I’ll start some LST and get the net up.

Everything moving along nicely. Slowly upping nutrients and lights. Sprayed today with the bloom khaos. Hopefully I’ve got enough Ca in the root zone that they shouldn’t have too many problems. I did break a top off while moving the second plant across the net. Not sure what’s going on there. Probably just me being careless. They got a little cold the other night but seem to be OK.

Looking good ! How close to your plants is your light? and on what setting?

They're about 22 inches at closest running at about fifty percent. According to my Photone app it's a little over 400par with amazingly even distribution.

Chugging along. Did a slurry test this week and came up with ph a little higher than I want it right now at 6.4 and 6.6. Ppm’s were decent but at the low end at 335 and 300 respectively. I’m going to keep up with the slurry tests and keep an eye on the ph but decided to forgo my Herc flush and increase the nutrients which I’ve got up to full strength now with the exception of the Kraken which I’ve cut out until later in veg. The branches have become much more pliable and easier to train along the trellis now that she’s not eating all that chitin.

I was a little concerned with the purple stems on the plant in the second pic so I’ve been foliar feeding with some Pegasus and Poseidonzime to see if some extra kelp or nitrogen will help her green up. Seems to be helping. I’m going to keep it up. Happy Halloween y’all!

Just been feeding this week. Slurry came in at 6.5 ph and 344 ppm on the one which I’m pretty happy with. Ph is up a bit but flower is approaching and everything looks good. Opted for a tea day there. The other one was at 6.4 ph and looks pretty hungry at 266 ppm. No tea for her. Upped my Herc and Demeters and fed. I’m thinking it may be time to thin out under the net and flip soon but I’d like to get rid of some of the weird curly-q new growth (pic included)which apparently in this line is a sign you’re pushing too hard with the bloom khaos without enough reserves. Being the genius I am, I missed that I was supposed to up the BK gradually from 1.25-5ml/qt foliar. I fed it at 5 two weeks ago and am still dealing with this odd stuff even though I’ve been pumping them full of food. I’d like to see this gone before I flip.
Lights are great at 60% and 20 inches or so above canopy. It’s giving me between 400 par around the edges to almost 600 in the middle at the closest point. Nothing not to like there!

Flushed and flipped this week. Also did a little light defoliation underneath the canopy that I’ll finish in a week or so. I like to clean up under there but have had crap luck taking too much before. Finally through the most boring part!

Looks great in here! I'll admit I'm really liking what I see growing under these SE5000's. They seem to really be growing nice plants. I look forward to seeing this one flower out!

Just my weekly bit. Everything still looking good. Just about done tucking for the plant on the left at the end of the first week of flower. The one on the right was not meant to be scrogged and never really wove into the trellis properly, probably because the indica genes are strong with her and they spent way too long in veg under the cheap blurple. I’ve been upping my Bloom Khaos and my Herc and am probably going to cut out any more foliar feeding this week after a last IPM day. Happy growing and hope all y’all in the US have a great Thanksgiving this week!

What a difference a week makes! I had to throw up the second net and lift my light. They’re only at F16 and I’m hoping this next week won’t bring too much additional stretch. I plan on doing some more cleaning up of the bottom and clearing out some leaves in the middle this week but otherwise, all looks like it’s moving right on schedule. Going to drop the N input this week and that should help stall the stretch a little.

Definitely two different phenos here. Had a little problem with the stretchier one this week. My soil slurry was showing the pH at 6.8. Boy, I sure am glad that I don’t have to worry about pH in soil. Yeah. So… A flush with Herc at 6.2 tied up a lot of that stuff and brought me back to a nice 6.5 but she’s now a little hungry at 280 ppm. Insane, as I’m consistently feeding at above 2000 ppm.

There’s some starting up. I wouldn’t mind seeing more! The first one is looking like it’s going to be full of bangers.
