Mephisto 2nd Leg Starts May 1st (Signup and Battle)

  • 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!)

I dropped two Blue Toof [HASHTAG]#29s[/HASHTAG] on April 17 (page 5). Alas, one didn't germinate, so I'd like to fill its space, and keep the successful Toof company by dropping a Double Grape today. Here's today's drop photo, and also a view of the Blue Toof from yesterday, her day 2:


Week 1 update anyway. Its day 15 for the Blue Toof and day 10 for the Double Grape. :toke:


Week 2. Its day 22 for the Blue Toof and day 17 for the Double Grape. AirDomes are on, but both still being lightly top-fed with AN cocktail of
Sensi GROW A/B, B52, Rhino Skin & Voodoo Juice.


Week 3. Its day 29 for the Blue Toof and day 24 for the Double Grape. AirDomes and reservoir in play, although two days ago they got top-fed .5 ltr of ReCharge and SLF-100. Now back on AutoPot reservoir loaded with Advanced Nutrients (Sensi GROW A&B, B52, Rhino Skin, Voodoo Juice, Sensizyme) plus Liquid W-8 and cal/mag.


Week 4. Its day 37 for the Blue Toof and day 32 for the Double Grape. All is well. 1st is Blue Tooth on left; 2nd is Double Grape on right.


Week 5 & BattlePlant Choice. I choose the Blue Toof. :thumbsup: :d5:


Week 6 update. Blue Tooth Illuminauto [HASHTAG]#29[/HASHTAG] on day 48 and standing at 28.5". Currently drinking a reservoir cocktail of Sensi Bloom A&B, Sensizyme, B52, Liquid W-8, Massive, Mammoth-P and Cal/Mag


Week 7 update. Blue Tooth Illuminauto [HASHTAG]#29[/HASHTAG] on day 55. No changes to light schedule or nutrient program. Some significant defoliation done today --- starting to get sticky and frosty. :smoking:


Week 8 and Week 9 updates got lost. Here they are again. First, week 8, posted on June 26; Blue Toof on day 64.



And here is week 9, posted on July 1 when she was 71 days old.


Week 10 update. Blue Tooth at day 78. :toke:


Week 11 update. BlueToof at day 83. :toke: Normally I'd be doing a lot of defoliating here, but she's so sticky and hard to get to in the autopot at the rear of the tent, that I just have been letting her do her thing.


Week 12 update. BlueToof Illuminauto [HASHTAG]#29[/HASHTAG] at day 91. :toke: Getting real close now. Took her off the reservoir of AN nutes a few days ago and let things dry out a bit. Today she got a liter of GreenPlanet DENSE. Very sticky. Strong terpene smell -- pine and a bit of citrus.


Final POLL Picture. BlueToof Illuminauto [HASHTAG]#29[/HASHTAG] at day 93. :toke:

Sign me up!

Week one update. Call it a guess, but, I don't think Sour Livers will be my battle plant.

Week 2 Update

Sour Livers is a little mutant plant at 18 days. Still going to see it through.

Double Grape is real nice at 20 days and a front runner for my battle plant.

24 Carat at 20 days.

4 Assed Monkey at 20 days, another good candidate.

3 Bears OG is the first to show sex today. Like the structure of this plant.

SODK is my first experiment at LST... We will see how it goes together.

Double Grape

Weekly update and plant choice. I almost chose a different plant just because it looks like a few will be in this competition, but, I too will be picking my Double Grape. It was between this plant and a 24 Carat. I think it will have some real nice frost and bud size.

Week 6 check in. About 2 feet tall and all stretching seems over. Really getting some frost now.

week 7 update
The Double Grape is really frosty now and smells wonderful. Artificial grape, almost kool-aid, all the way.


my week 8 update. Day 62 for Double Grape. Looking at trichomes I think it has another week or two.

here is my harvest pic. Thanks again for all your hard work in these battles!

Might as well count me in. Lets see if Air pots do better than smart pots. :)
2 White Chems in the running, both have been topped this evening. The first we are calling Plague Doctor was topped at the 4th node and has the purest most perfect roots I have ever seen. The 2nd one is named Pearl. She has been topped at the 5th node and had her bottom 2 nodes ( normally dont produce much) nodes removed. We have a litlle side by side action to see which on fruits more. Enjoy!

Plague Doctor Plague Doctor Roots

Pearl


Week 2 Update! Girls are sitting at day 22 today. One is riding low and slow and the other is trying to branch out. Nice root growth so far. Im excited to see what they do.


week 3 update on the White Chems. They are at day 30 and I suppose they will start flowering this week. The one in the back is much more denser in foliage while the one in front is more spread out. Should be interesting to see the differences in quantity on the 2. Same seeds, same batch, same everything. They just are nothing alike right now though.

Here is a week 4 for the group. White Chem sitting at day 36.


week 5..... sounds right. Also D day to pick our plant I believe. Im going to share some pics..I hope you all dont mind. @bushmasterar15

First off. Here is my 2 White Chems... 2? Yes 2 plants filling out my 5x5! WTF! Thank you LST lol. Also topped at 4th node on one than 5th node on the other.


These gals are sitting at day 42 since they popped soil.... 24/7 light and on a strict MC2.0 Diet. Only supplement is some cal/mag.



Zero Defoliating... No reason. It does more bad than good with the exception if we run into mold or crowding issues....



Last but not least...My battle plant. Im going with the smaller guy in the back. While I am rather sure she will yield less. She has tighter nodes and spacing and I believe will be more picture friendly in the end.

Week 6 update. Just finishing up my new grow space.

Week 7 Update. The smaller one in the back is the battle plant. Maybe another 2-3 weeks on em. Than we will clean her up and see if I cant get some good pictures this time. Happy growing you all.

How does this work to enter, does it have to be a Mephisto seed? Is a seed supplied?
This is just a Mephisto grow battle, we do have others (General, Lighting) that will be doing signups that you can run other Breeders. You supply your own on this. There is a few times where seeds are supplied in other breeder battles.
