Nice harvest bro! Your gonna be BUSY. Cant Wait to see the nug shots
Awesome job my man! They look amazingStick a fork in it. Tomorrow is going to be a long busy day for Ol'Dirtbag, I'm taking these ladies down at day 62. They're done... Havent taken up hardly any water this past week whatsoever.
The Space cookies (I originally thought they were platinum, but after talking to the guy I got them from we think he actually gave me space cookies...) anyway, they are just monsters. For scale those are 7 gallon pots they're in. Not bad for only 2 weeks veg under HID, and a 4 week preveg before that under T5's. Each one looks like a half pound plant. Always hard to say though until they hit the scale. But it is a very dense plant, half pounds look like QP's.
And Bubba... lol, she is CAKED in resin and smells just lovely but looks like a midget beside the space cookies.
Not gonna lie, I had some slight issues with overfeeding and playing with new nutrients etc.. I've seen these plants do better. But overall I'm quite happy with the grow this cycle.
Some post-harvest pics coming tomorrow.

I'd like to give a farkin huge thanks to MiMedGrower and cemchris for the insights about low P and even feeding until the end. I'm sold. Smoking a 6 day old, barely dry taster that already burns good and tastes great, and it was fed until the last 6 days of its life. Funny how me and so many growers I know have held on to the idea of flushing for literally decades.. This crop proved it to me. Low strength feed of just what it needs makes more sense, the pot tastes better, and burns as clean or better than 2 week flushed pot.
Pulled about 3.5 lb out of this crop without putting in very much effort. Schwing!!
Stick to what Works .... rock em broWell, Next round is off to an iffy start. I'm trying out some new soil and within 5 days my stems went purple, woody, and growth slowed way down. Way more than normal transplant shock. It got another watering today and my runoff is coming out at 4.6 Ec!! Not good considering I've only ever given 1.0ec so far and it's supposed to be an inert peat based media.
I guess it's time for some surfactant and a flush... Dammit. Remind me to stick with what works...
Also, I have to say I might be going back on my feelings about flushing. This last round burns ok, but the flavour isnt as good as usual. It's just a bit more harsh compared to usual and somewhat lacking in flavour. Looks great, smells great, but not as tasty as it was with a 2 week flush. I think i might be going back to it...
Honestly I might use this as my excuse to shut down the main room for a few weeks and reno the place. I've been meaning to install an AC for a while anyway. I could do that and put in an automated irrigation system while I'm at it. And who knows... maybe even Co2..?!?
