First Grow- in 40 years

  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

Here's the end of week 5 of my bonsai grow lol. One issue i found was this was doomed from the start. When one of the brats started turning yellow I went looking for answers. When I received the AN Sensi Grow, the 2 parts were wrapped together and marked something like "2 part package do not breakup". I ASSUMED that it was the part A&B. You see where I'm goin with this-yup- I received 2 bottles of Part B. My very bad. Still don't know why only one went to yellow. Life's little mysteries I guess.
The conundrum for me now is will the autoflower period be delayed or should I start bloom nutes and lights? Wait a week? Does @Tyler_Durden88 RWYB have a consolation prize for smallest nugz?

End of week 6 prior to haircuts. I thought I was going to leave em alone but the canopy got so thick, I couldn't help myself. I was just getting ready to shoot pics of the after trim but a group of folks with 6 leo's showed up to rent the track so I think I'll wait till they leave.
First a story (old guys love to tell stories). I had some friends that traveled around to malls and such with a petting zoo. They had a chimpanzee named Buster. They had a standing bet that if you gave Buster a toy to play with and it lasted more then 5 minutes without breaking, they would pay out $500. They would get guys from major toy companies- Tonka, Fisher Price etc come buy to test old and new products. They never had to payout the money. Purpose of this story-- I think I may be the Buster of weed. 6 weeks no sign of turning to bloom-that I can see. A couple of the smaller ones I realized have more 3 & 5 leaves then 7. They look healthy to me- just small.
Something else I realized that when doing 2nd, 3rd, 4th cut on manifold, don't necessarily cut the first node. Make sure the orientation of the leaves aren't going to give you a vertical orientation. A lot harder to train. All for now :chimp:

I "think" I may have dodged a bullet and there really is a Santa Claus. Sunday I had trimmed all the big fan leaves off and it was all pretty sparse. Monday I started hitting em with bloom nutes.and practically overnight they filled in and up 2".

Unless my newbie eyes are deceiving me, today when I went to water, I started to poke around a bit and I believe these are the signs of starting to bloom?

I put the seeds in glass jars on the 19th May. Day 60 in the photo's.

They having been grown under a Migro100 COB LED (115Watts from the wall) from day one. The light has been at various heights / intensities as i'm a complete noob and wasn't sure which position was correct.

I use Plagron Hydro A + B, plant magic magne cal+, Shogun Silica, Hydroguard and tehn generic pH adjusters.

Cool. With the way mine have started to grow, I would say I'm pretty much on time. Thanks for the info
