    How long do you veg from seed to fill that 4x4 tent? When you take clones, just before flip?

    For this particular run I went out and got the 4 clones from a nursery. The Day 1 picture at the top is the first day I had them and I vegged them for 4 weeks before the 12/12 flip. I probably should have vegged only 3 weeks but I have not run the strain before and was not sure what kind of stretch to expect.

    If I were to go from seed it would probably be give or take an additional 5-6 weeks of time including germination and all.

    Week 8(Day 56) Royal Highness(Royal Kush x Cali Dream x Trainwreck)

    Just cruising along here enjoying these fall colors coming out:cool: Still riding my pH at 5.8-6.0 as always and feeding once a day. Since day 49 they have been getting only Shine(PK) at 1g per gallon. I'll be doing this until 4-5 days before harvest and from then on pH’d tap water at 150ppm or 0.3EC

    Things to consider:
    I might have to run some outdoor plants this season for fun. I love playing with quality soil and it's been a little while since an outdoor grow. Debating if I want to have fun with some auto seeds I have or test out some normal photoperiod seeds. Maybe both as I have a nice little stash. We shall see!

    Nutrient Thoughts:
    So have you guys messed with Mega Crop by Green Leaf Nutrients? I've seen a few threads about it here and there. It seems to be a solid 1 part hydroponic nutrient. Very similar to the simplicity of Veg+Bloom, Maxibloom, and Jacks Hydro.

    I have wanted to try Jacks but never got around to it because I didn't feel like buying 4 pounds of base and calcium nitrate if I ended up not liking it although I can't see why I would not. Apparently Mega Crop is just as affordable as Jacks but actually has a few more additives mixed into the base much like Veg+Bloom. Very informative website that is well put together but good websites don't grow plants. I have a free sample coming my way so I'll give it a shot at some point and see how it goes against Veg+Bloom. It's more affordable than Veg+Bloom(which is already pretty cheap haha) mostly when it comes to bulk pricing.

    Snapped a quick picture through my method seven hps glasses while feeding the girls tonight and thought I’d share :D

    The amount of purple is getting ridiculous! Soon we’ll be at week 9 which is about a week past the breeders recommended time frame. I typically like to go past if I don’t know the strain and I like to assume my environment isn’t nearly as good as the breeders. Rarely if ever can I remember harvesting late and being disappointed.

    Starting to finally see some ambers coming in and way more cloudy trichomes through my jewelers loupe so I believe I’m entering my harvest window pretty soon here. I’ll keep monitoring but it’s looking like maybe 3-4 days after week 9 will be harvest time!

    Week 9(Day 63) Royal Highness(Royal Kush x Cali Dream x Trainwreck)
    Sup everyone! Still riding my pH at 5.8-6.0 as always and feeding once a day. Since day 49 they have been getting only Shine(PK) at 1g per gallon. I'm starting to see a lot more amber trichs popping up so the time of harvest is here. I have also seen a reduction on the required volume of daily water which is another sign harvest is here. I will start them on the pH'd tap water diet for the next 3-4 days and then chop chop.:love2:

    It's gonna be awesome. I cannot wait to have some new smoke!

    They're looking sweet man! I've never heard of the strain but they look awesome! I'm planning on running LSD by barneys on a future grow and I've been thinking of a strain with a similar flowering too alongside them. Think I just found that!

    Thanks man! Right on for stopping in. I didn't know these kind of colors would come out and I am very happy with them. I can't wait to sample some of the smoke.
