Hey everyone, I'm doing some testing on some things and will have the Live IM chat add-on disabled for the time being. Appreciate your consideration and apologies for any inconvenience! - Hobbes (7 pm MDT 2/13/2020)
@The Elvis I have never used cal-mag. Never had a deficiency so never needed it...yet. I use my plain old tap water and it must have a bit of each in it already but I'm getting some anyway due to the light green in the growth. It's darkening a bit but could use a boost. I also add Epsom salts on occasion just to make sure.
Well, I'm waiting on my order from amazon to get here. Can't wait, like a kid a Christmas. Ordered a 4 by 2 by 6 tent, some GH cal-mag and diamond nectar. A couple 6-4inch reducers and another 4 inch duct to connect the cool tube, can fan and carbon filter. Shit can't get here soon enough. Looks like they split the package in half and will be receiving half the order by tomorrow and the other half by Monday. Stupid amazon prime. Thought it was free 2 day shipping. Lemon haze is a BEAST of a plant. Threw her into flower a 3 days ago and she is starting to stretch her legs.
The amazon fairy dropped by the last couple days with the last of my light cooling/ventilation system. I cut a hole in the wall to vent the hot air into an adjacent closet. The temps have dropped 10+ degrees with the door shut which is a lot better than 97. Now I just need my tent which will be here Monday. I hooked up the ventilation just to see what it would do in the closet. I also took the reflector that came with my light and cut it down to middle and made extensions for the reflector on the cool tube. Just duct taped them on for now. I can always remove them and put them back on the original reflector but they are serving a second purpose now. The set up is 1 cool tube
2 6-4 duct reducers
1 ipower 4inch 190cfm fan
1 ipower 4 inch carbon
filter with hardware
1 louvered duct vent
2 8ft lengths of 4in duct
Here are some pics of the temporary new setup, as soon as the tent comes monday, that's where the plants will spend their remaining days.
GSC is fattening up nicely and is exactly 2ft tall. She's done growing vertically and I hope she fills out horizontally. She still doesn't have a single red hair on her and will continue to fatten up. Gave her a first dose of Diamond Nectar and Cal-Mag and they all seem to love it. She has little to no smell unless you touch her then she smells peppery with a hint of grapefruit like a poster above said about ruderalis dominant plants.
Here are some updated pics of the Rudy dom GSC fron [HASHTAG]#fastbuds[/HASHTAG] Shes fattening up pretty good and is packing on the trichs. She has a couple orange hairs here and there but I give her another 3 weeks minimum and she will be ready. She's exactly 2 feet tall, her buds are long and skinny and are looking pretty dense under this new 600 hps. I finally have her I nice dose of Cal-Mag and some Diamond Nectar from GH. Hoping she yields at least an OZ, hopefully more but I'm not holding my breath. I also found like 5 lady bugs on some milkweed while out biking so I threw them in a baggie and let them loose in my garden. Can't hurt right? I don't have pests yet and hope to keep it that way.
@The Elvis Shes surprised me so far, hopefully she does it again and yields a nice amount of killer smoke. As long as it's good, I don't care about the quantity. Will take quality over quantity every day. She does have Cali Girl Scout Cookies genetics in her after all, hoping she finishes strong and packs on the trichs. She does have a silver/blue hue to her.
Took a few pics of the girls new home. Lemon haze is being abused with a metal scrog ring she is holding up all in her own, she had help holding it the first few days then I took the struts off too see if she could hold it up. GSC is getting fatter, will take a pic later outside the tent. Gorillas been stuck in the same phase for 2+ weeks and hasn't gained a bit. Already sprouting her replacement. Bubblegum from Kera seeds looks excellent, it's almost her turn in the scrog ring.
