@Roasty McToasty most welcome bro, most welcome ...... I’m going to setup a few carrots outside in garden to test and see what’s up, excited to get them dialed in ....... Did you find getting carrot drip just right challenging or did it dial right in?

Yeah still dialing, takes a good bit of time to see your results after adjusting. Long slow process, but once you find the sweet spot, that's it, done.

Thanks OB!!! I'd be in worse sitch for sure without your guidance. I am very grateful to you for being a beacon in the darkness. Would be lost without you taking the time, and I thank you for it. :d5:

Yeah I really like the Bluemats a lot. Feel like it's keeping the pots perfectly moist, way better than I can manage with a watering can. Plus the wife likes I have more time outside the garden. Next round should be killer, following some of your good advice on seedling care, so we should see much better plants in the future.


Thanks BCBL!!!! Yes very green still, only CS has faded and lost about 4 large upper fan leaves. Gorgeous purples and yellows like CDLC. CDLC is by far my favorite smoke, so good to hear CS is even better. She really does smell amazing, a pleasant mix of her parents for sure, fruity and chemmy, very very sweet aroma. Chopping next weekend if I get some amber trichs real soon.
Yeah eff those lil buggers, they have been a challenge. May have to cover all the pots in the tent as well. The last of the flyers are desperately trying to save the colony, by hanging out in the tent. Hoping their eggs won't make it in the well neemed top dressing.
Day 72 for CS and Fugue, 65 for Ripley's. Bought a 12 carrot bluemat setup, and put 3 carrots in each pot. Seem to be working really well, only issue is all the pots are linked together till I get some quick connects. Then I can make each pot removable. Connectors it came with are pretty permanent. Easy fix. Plants are doing great, checked CS trichs, and all cloudy, thinking another week on her. Fugue looks like 10-14 days out, haven't scoped her yet. Ripley's just keeps getting fatter buds, probably at least 14 days left for her.





Fugue


CS




Ripley's




New setup in the 10G pot area, Covered all the pots with trash bags, and used velcro to help seal around the perimeter. The kids are starting to recover, but the damage is done, probably will be very small stunted plants.



Great job @Roasty McToasty! How old r the babies? I think the gnats should be gone soon by the sound of it. Your plants did great homie, as expected by me. May I give you some friendly Blumat advice? Things work great, especially for just water. Now remember this, PLEASE. NEVER let the Rez get REALLY EMPTY. This changes the pressure and the valves will adjust. Great ....until you fill it back up. This pressure change can lead to floods, after you fill the Rez up. The valves can stick open and flood. Trust slow, I had Blumats and know. I had dozens of Blumats. I had floods a couple of times. This is the reason 100%. Easy solution. Always keep it similar heights in Rez. Never let it get really low. If you do, stay home and monitor the carrots drip rate later. If one sticks open it will flood. You will love them otherwise. Peace, slow

Real nice tips gro bro! Sorry for the delayed response. I think the HBH is around 35 days, the Stardawg is maybe a week older. The SOH in the middle pot got her top snapped by me trying to bend her over, I'll probably cull her when I get another something germed, she's flowering and only 6 inches tall. I really effed her up, and was my last one.:face:

I had that exact thing happen Thursday night into Friday morning, a run away dripper on my Fugue pot. Only had to clean up around a gallon, but the pot got too saturated and leached a bunch of nutes out. :face:
I had adjusted the drips that night, so was probably the indian, not the arrow. But good advice on keeping the res around the same level, makes sense. :d5:
I had put more water in the res that night too, so that may have contributed.
As always thanks for helping bro! :slap:

So I went ahead and chopped the Creme Stomper and Fugue, I think day 79. Both had real nice dense buds, but the CS was even more so. Took some pics before the :amazon:













So after harvest I went and plugged 2 new kids around 2 weeks old into the vacant pots. Left is Ghost Stomper, right is Orange Diesel.

Love the "new" starting lineup you have in place. Nice diversity. Interested in seeing them progress. And the Ripleys looks awesome! Great growing.
