mephisto ..... what else?
Hi everybody!

I learned so much through this fabulous forum watching the masters at work, so I thought it's time to give something back to this awesome community and start my first journal of an -hopefully- long and fruitful journey. English is not my native language so please be forgiving with me ....
Beeing a grower who has still a lot to learn, I'm very open to all your questions, comments and advices.

I bought new lights (my first grow with COBs), cleaned my tent and started this adventure at the beginning of the year.

I love diversity so the idea is to have always 4 (mostly) different plants in my garden. So I planted them with a time difference of +/- 3 weeks between each. .... it took a while to fill the tent but now I am able to chop a plant more or less every 3 weeks and replace her through another.

A special thanks @slowandeasy for his kind and excellent watering advices and @mephisto for there absolutely awesome creations and quality!

And here the Forgotten Cookies, chopped yesterday at day 74 from sprout. I would have given here 5-7 days more but I'm running out of weed ... so decision was easy :smokeit:

She was 55cm tall and 45cm wide, topped above the 4th node, LST and she gave me 633gr wet weight of manicured buds .... so I guess 120-140gr dry (using 50W of light ... that would be something between 2,4 and 2,8 gr/w, which is not bad at all I think) I will post an update once she's ready for the jars.

Outstanding setup, reminds me of when I was running perpetual with photoperiods and clones. Every 7-10 days, 3 came out and 3 went in. They were small-ish, and that was intentional. Harvest every 3 weeks were about 20-30 grams. But it was a lot of work, as I had to keep clones going and had different feeding schedules for different stages of plants and clones and mother plants lives. I can see where it might be an easier task with auto's. Good Luck, I am subbed to watch you kill it!

Welcome and thank‘s for joining and your kind words!
With autos it‘s not a big deal. Space management is easier and it is fun to have different plants in different stages of their life requiring a different treatment each of them.

Thanks man .... but I‘ve to admit that some months ago my growing was worse and I‘m just starting to get decent results. Now I will have to proof to myself that results are reproducible.

My Ghost Toof will hopefully start her life in a couple of days.

Orange Diesel recently started the flower mode so I guess she will be ready to be chopped and replaced +/- at day 85 (4 weeks left). Due to my very limited space I have to shape all my plants (topping, LST) so they take a bit longer. But never too long because I like them mostly cloudy or cloudy, I don‘t like to see amber on my buds ... just a personal preference.

Then I will start a strain which is quite rare these days: Illuminauto [HASHTAG]#11[/HASHTAG] (White Stomper = Sour Stomper x Walter White) which I received as freebie with one of my last orders. Thank you @mephisto for giving me this opportunity!
