I have found the odd aphid and gnat when they got real dry one time so they got another treatment or two with azamax after that.

The nursery is flying now too all still going even the two mango sapphire I snapped the stems on when cropping are repaired. The tropical punch x seems to be a great grower, easy veg.

Hungry ladies update
Week 6 day 44 Temp 24c 50% r/h
So the ladies are super hungry now drinking 4.5L every 2/3 days
Feeding around 900ppm
5ml bloom nute
.5ml bloombastic
5ml/5ml bacterial/effective microorganisms
Ph'd to 6
Getting a bit of fade on one or two of them to various degrees now too, hopefully they are on track and it's not some issue coming up.

The room had been super smelly, stinking downstairs sometimes, I only had a bug filter on the air/cooling intake and the smell was wafting out. So I put a new carbon filter up inside and put the old one on the intake and it seems to have sorted it. The thing is huge and I had to move fans and the extractor to fit it in the spot.

Heres the ladies out for a good inspection and tied up with sticks a bit more
20200106_002710.jpg

I also went to the shop to get some pots for the alien guerilla to transplant, they were put in 6l pots in canna professional soil with extra 30%perlite, mychorriaze and worm castings
20200106_181259.jpg

I also came back with 4 more core cut plants that were in the discount tent there, they guy saw me looking and threw them in for free, so I couldn't say no . 3 new strains for me, they are, 2 Super lemon haze ,1 purple star killer and 1 mimosa., I have 7 different strains on the go now. gonna veg those 3 out and get some cuts off them. That should be enough choice to keep the perpetual running now... Might have to sacrifice some others to fit em all in the box tho

Lil bit of an update.
End of week 6 flowering on sunday, lights on temp Day 24c/75f 50% Night 22c/71f 50%

All going pretty good at the moment, had a bit of fade going on on a couple. So after some much appreciated advice from @Dirtbag and @Aqua Man. Iv fed them a 50% dose of 50/50 veg/bloom feed, and will plan to start backing off feed into week 8 I think... plenty of extra weight being packed on now, got some cloudy trichs coming through more and more...
20200110_225457.jpg

the other day the pistils turned orange n now it's nearly covered again. They definitely seem to like being under the kingbrite leds.
20200110_225420.jpg


The only other real issue iv had is space in both boxes and my inkbird ITC 310t shat itself, the temp was jumping up and down by 5 degrees and the room was running under 19c/66f luckily it was just running the cooling on and off too much, with the lights on and not the heater which would have roasted em, pretty sure it was only like that from 3am when I left to 9am when I checked it before lights out in the morning and noticed. Hopefully no stress.
20200110_144924.jpg

Veg box is flying now too, the two alien gorilla didn't miss a beat after transplant. Probably definitely gonna have to take some outta here, when it gets too busy. 24 plants in a 2x4.
20200110_234214.jpg


Heres a comparison of the two core cut alien guerilla when I got em all funky and now..... gonna flower the top one next run and keep the other vegging til the following run n likely flower by herself, or wit one more, there is currently like 40 odd tops on it and like a bonsai ha

Lookin damn nice man. I wouldn't worry about dipping a bit low in temp, that's almost always better than too hot. And in this case the odd day of low temps is good for them in late flower. More natural fall climate and it can help bring out colours etc. And a 5 degree temp swing is no big deal. My setup has a 4-5 degree swing all the time.
Good luck man, looks like its gonna be a nice crop.

I am glad that someone finally said something. I just read through this thread and I am like, "why the fuck is no one telling this man how great everything looks?" lol. Everything really looks stellar. I do have a question for you though. What lights are you running in veg? I always feel like I have too little light for my veg/mothers, but it looks like you are running less than I ever have and fucking killing it. It is also nice to see that your plant that you split is recovering. Cannabis never ceases to amaze me. I have had an outdoor plant that I completely snapped a branch off of and then splinted that recovered just fine. Good luck with your grow! Positive vibes...

Totally, And I think your fade is probably just natural senescence. Some plants just fade different colours at the end regardless of the feeding. I can pound 1.5ec at my bubba all day but if shes done itll fade to purple and yellow anyway. Although the smoke will still be harsh.. Kinda surprised me the first time it happened where it faded right out but still burned poorly from overfeeding.

Lol thanks nugzz much appreciated, lots more time put in this run than my last couple trying to really dial in the environment in the box and training them out almost daily, I'm up there a lot with them ha
The cuts are veg under t5 til the roots just about pop the 3x3 eazy cubes. Then I pot them in the final pot 15L/3 gal and they are put straight under the lumatec super lumen dimmable hps 600w dimmed to 400w+ 60w with the super lumens on last week in veg, dropping the light down in height bit by bit to meet them as they hardy up while vegging, week 4 in the pots is when I flip to flower il put the light up again and switch to 600w let em get used to it for a couple days then drop the light as much as I can to the canopy and going bk up with the stretch, all the while crossing my finger n toes lol.
Yea they are a hardy lil plant if you give em what they want when they want lol I'm a sucker for going in the shop n taking the funky cuts in the discount bin home to see if I can figure out what the need. Iv a couple like that going now! Good for practice
Positive vibes bk at ya!

Yea probably I'm not as worried about it as they are much much better than this stage last run. I was I was checking the trichs last night and that one plant just seems to be more ready/cloudy, with more rounded compact bud than the others of the same strain, same smell off them tho, maybe a different pheno? Although I'm not sure how they come about. Or maybe the difference in being under the led in flowering? Who knows? I know I dont anyway lol. Iv got more of the same strain vegging for the next run so il see if they grow out the same way again!
Peace!

Update: not much change except for bigger stinkyer buds, flower town is in full swing now! been cutting back on the feeds a bit and il be looking at a flush or two maybe next weekend
20200115_004555.jpg

I think I have a week or so left on the most cooked one up front... it is still fading and no sign of any amber trichs het either, she also has some purple coming up now too, she might get nutes cut and flush earlier than the others. I dont have a separate space to dry at the moment so I gotta figure that out, if the harvest is gonna be staggered anyway.

20200114_230754.jpg

In the veg box I been doing some LST on some of the branches that are shooting up and these have all been getting a light feed of 200ppm every second watering... both the alien guerilla on the left are liking the fresh soil and bigger pot.

Week 8 of flower...
Word of the week is patience....and i need more of it... two of the ladies are showing some amber now and fading pretty rapid so the both got a flush of straight water run through them, the rest are well milky now too so shouldnt be too far behind!!!
20200117_004916.jpg

Mango sapphire
20200117_004903.jpg

The old flower site of one of the reveged doing its thing underneath. Pretty sure these two rehabbed ones are Channel + just from the smell of them, they smell super sweet or fruity.

Finally have all the plants chopped and dried, 1050g of solid bud was the final total, the most I got off one plant was 5.8 oz, lots of stinky bud for me!!

Super smart 420

Gotta get cleaned down now and change up the setup for the next run.
Peace.

Got cleaned down and changed up the room a bit for the next run, After the last run forced me from 4x4 to about 4x7 when they bust out of the tent so I have to keep it now. I put in a flood tray on a slight incline to make it easier to drain any run off and clean, i swapped the lights around to the leds at the back where I'm gonna run the scrog next and I also tidied up and mounted the drivers outside the box, cos the mess lol
20200205_174233.jpg

The ladies that are going in next are really ready to move now, the are about a foot tall and I gave them a tidy up and a neem treatment for ipm a couple days ago to get ready for transplanting.
20200205_221517.jpg

20200205_221527.jpg


Of the others I might flower one of the super lemon haze and the purple star killer under the hps, the rest are gonna stay in the veg box

Today iv been having a look at what and how many I'm going to put in under the scrog 12 or 16? I havnt decided yet. This pic is 16 plants most of them 4 or 5 tops each after the LST. I think this might be too much for the 4x4, but I dont know what I'm doing so it's all good ha
20200206_152747.jpg

I might run 12 or 13 in there to give em some more space for light to get through,
20200206_154011.jpg

20200206_154431.jpg



I also have this irrigation kit I'm gonna throw in, it takes about 20 minutes to pump 1.2L down each pipe, I might put 2 in each of the hardest to reach pots, so il have to see how it goes with my scrog/feeder experiment as I go.
20200206_125536.jpg

Got some adjustments to make before I transplant the ladies into 6L pots il let them settle for a few days with 24h light them flip them to flower.
Peace

So I transplanted the ladies over to 6L pots last night with a mix of canna terra soil,coco and perlite mix. There is some guano and mychorriaze gone in there too, these cuts were taken at the end of Novemberish, and rooted and potted by 13 dec so almost 8 weeks later with some issues and topping and lst they are going into the other box, so I have finally managed to cut/clone and bring em through veg to flower on the way to perpetual growing
20200208_165506.jpg

This morning they are wearing some transplant shock so hopefully they will recover in a day or two, gotta get the feeder fitted in and the scrog net down on them asap too. They will get a good feed and a week to settle and il flip em to 12/12 then
20200209_135402.jpg

These tropical punch x sour punch I know from the last run like to droop loads after a watering anyway but the others are doing it a bit too,
20200209_135412.jpg

After taking cuts I'm gonna transplant a super lemon haze and purple star killer and put them under the hps too
20200209_142739.jpg

Here they are 5 days later just about come around after the transplant shock, still a little droopy but the majority of clawing has stopped. They are also in need of a good feed now looking a bit light green ul top, still not completely dry yet after I over watered on the transplant. But definitely getting better, at least I didn't kill em!!
20200212_234827.jpg

Got some purple stems to show for it now too
20200212_151258.jpg

20200211_222406.jpg

Now they are coming around its onto the rest of the stuff I need to get done like set in the feeder and the first scrog net down.

Thanks for looking
