Cool reflector :thumbsup: Dang, all that stuff just for asking? I gotta ask, what exactly did you ask? I'm running low :rofl:
I was honest. Introduced myself, gave my experience, told em I would feature it in a journal.
Some companies will hook ya up, most wont. And sometimes its just a matter of catching the rep on the right day in the right mood. I think thats the case here as i got that rejection email first. And I've gotten follow up emails after rejection emails.

Thanks. The reflector is under personal review to see what happens. Im a believer in verticle cmh. But this shade was under 100, and gives the almost wall to wall coverage. But is to the eye, less reflective and due to the shade being fabric, it isnt perfectly laid. (Waves/creases) so im sure therell be an unevenness in its distribution. Im wondering if having wider coverage will help make up for that though.

Good morning errbody!!!
So far, the plants are LOVING life. Ive got 1 that seems to be wanting some calmag. But the rest are all green and healthy. They seem to be going slower than last run, but much more green(but not too dark). Ive started tying them down and topped them all on saturday.

@Fast Buds Heather Crystal is is the back labeled cm. Shes doing well, though a bit red in the stems. Im unsure if its genetic as i had the same last run.

Happy Sunday!!!!!
The nutrients are working! All of the ladies are bushing nicely. I lowered the light a lil bit. Its now 30 inches from the tops. I gave the ladies their 2x a week top feeding. I might run into an issue in the bottom pot. I planted a Superhash × Strawberry nuggets next to a Strawberry nuggets × Sour Crinkle. The size varience may prove to be a detriment as the stretch contines. There is already a 25% differential.

The 2 baby breeders are very small. I dont need em big, i just need em to flower. But i did expect a lil more size from them.

The 4 in the autopots are behaving as expected. Big bushes and lots of branching. I wanna save the big fans as i know the rest of the plant will soon grow over them, but on 2 of them, theyre fat fat indica-y leaves bigger than my whole hand. So ive been trying to tie them down and tuck as much as i can. It doesnt look super pretty yet, but it will when i have a full tent and semi-even canopy.

Hey everybody!! Happy wednesday!! Weve got some hella growth!! So much so i had to break the ladies up a bit.
I pulled the 2 baby breeders, the pollen donor, and the 2 hg in the planter and stuck them all under the leds at 20". Theyll all continue to be fed from the res but may be pictured a lil less going forward. The cmh tent will be only the 4 autopots.

House and Garden nutrients are doing great!! I havent eeded to add calmag as i thought i might, and the growth on these is great!! The following is my feed mix for a 5 gallon bucket. I used screenshots of their app and show the slight mod as per the bottle.

Updates are numbered in accordance with pot number on picture.
1. Blue Dreamatic × Sour Crinkle
Definately showing off with the stretching. I swear i could run just this one in a 4x4 and fill it. Itll be fun to try to keep it manageable as it explodes

2. Deez Nuggs × Sour Crinkle
Ive only grown it in smaller containers. This one is already as big as ive seen em get, so im sure she'll impress me.

3. Chemdog × Strawberry Nuggets
Im smoking on its predecessor now. This one has nice thick branches that LOVE to snap at the lightest touch. Ive already broken 2 branches and yesterday i half severed one of its heads. Its flower is wonderful, but its one that i think my more hands off family will benefit from. Or maybe just not in this setup where i HAVE to bend them instead of just topping.
4. Cookies × Strawberry Nuggets
What can we expect, its a cookies cross. Last one gave me some 83g finished. And the combination of these 2 makes it bed time. At very least, im not doin anything that involves motion. Im hoping she branches out like the last one did.

The unlabeled pot is the pollen donor Cbd kush. Purple and sweet. She's now under blurples that produce hella frost from too much blue.

Day 35!! The exciting times! I mixed up a batch of nutes but forgot to turn on the res. Luckily i make it a point to top water 2 to 3 times a week. Theyre fine. And the autopot res is 1/4 drained already.

These ladies are loving the nutes. I had to give in and switch the pots around a bit. I raised the 2 shorter ones on top of a couple pepsi crates.
So now in the 4x4 under the cmh is
Left back is Blue Dreamatic x Sour Crinkle
Left front is Chemdog x Strawberry Nuggets
Right back is Deez Nuggs x Sour Crinkle
Right front is Cookies x Strawberry Nuggets

I have to say i thought the house n garden nutes would be more of a hassle. But its surprisingly simple. Less than a half hour for a batch mix into the res and hand feeding the few that need it. Im interwsted to see how it goes in flower as i didnt notice a calmag in the mix.

Good evening everyone. Thought id drop my weekly update in.
Everyone is just chugging along nicely. I have officially varied from the feed chart. I am never apologetic about this as plants vary and lets be honest, autos are different than photos.
So i dropped all the veg addons and used 6 ml of bud-xl with 28ml of a+b respectively the last time i topped off with 5 gal.
This will allow around 5 to 8 days of blending for a bit of transition time. As you'll see, i did this in accordance with the ladies wanting to flower. Someone in there smells like my cat got in and decided to "water the plants". It smells terrible as soon as i hit the zipper. Not in a good way. At least not to my nose. I hope the superhash starts puttin it out to cut that smell. Its easy to explain lemon scent. Its hard to explain how 1 cat can piss enough to stink up a road.

Im leaving most of the leaves as i did last time. It worked well last time.
I have 2 oscillating 6 inch fans up top and 1 stationary 6 inch fan on the ground pointing from the back left to back right corner. So i have PLENTY of airflow for a 4x4. Even in my most leaf dense spots i can lick my finger and feel a breeze.

And a breeding update, the pollen sacs keep coming. All the green bits on the purple!! Unfortunately, the crystal from fast buds looks like itll be a green pheno. Not at all wbat i was hoping for. Ill be saving pollen so ill try again and pop a buncha maybe purples next run. Crossing fingers for crossing strains. I want a purple 1:1ish.
And of course my most flowerful plant is currently the swampberry (strawberry nuggets x sour crinkle). Ive had multiple done and ambering at 58 days before. These wont be. But itll be intersting to see when they do. I bet they're done first. There's a reason im putting it in with the pollen. I dont necessarily plan to pollenate it, but i wont cry over a few stray seeds either.

Photodrop! I took the liberty of taking close up shots of the #2 branches of each main plant.

Led tent.
Back left - Superhash x Strawberry nuggets.
20200604_215557.jpg


Back right(in the same planter)
Strawberry Nuggets x Sour Crinkle my bet is that this one finishes a week ahead of all others. This is the cross i had 4 different ones finish between 58 and 63 days!!
20200604_215546.jpg


And in the main tent i included a couple shots with a tape measure. I did what i could with a cell.

These plants are doing great! It seems i was correct to switch over to the bud-xl a bit earlier. Ill start hitting it full strength as i mix up the next batch of top off tomorrow. This makes 17.5g of nutrients mixed from sunday to saturday. Ive got some thirsty ladies. I dont normally top 15 in a week.

These ladies are drinking about 3:2 bloom:veg nutrient blend. I mixed up 7.5 g of water with 45ml of a+b and 15ml of budxl and added it to half a res of mostly veg. Im letting it go till its down to 1/4 and topping it with all bloom.
So far im only seeing issues with 1 plant. The cookies x strawberry nuggets is showing heavy rusty leaves. The rest are all happy.
Im hoping that these all finish in 12 weeks. Some of these havent been the fastest. Though i know its way too early to insult miladys.
