Last option sounds the best to me.So, I'm still struggling with these cluster(fuck) headaches, the Doc's put me on this injection called Emgality.... supposed to be a major game changer for migranes.
It has reduced the severity but not the frequency, and the major side effect I'm getting is depression. Now, I'm normally a very happy go lucky kind of guy but this has knocked me for six. I cried at the end of the last episode of 'The Big Bang Theory' for fuck sake!
It was Father's day here in Oz a couple of weeks back and I fell into this hole where I had convinced myself that I was a shit Dad, so I went into the grow shed and switched it all off.
For 3 days.
Then I came to my senses (plus the jars are getting empty), and switched it all back on again.
The plants looked terrible, but I have been plodding along trying to get them back on track.
Here they are on day 45, 7 days after switching it all off.....

clockwise from top left: Chronic Ryder, Night Queen, Blackberry Kush and Jack Herer.
Not looking too bad, a few yellow leaves and a bit of Cal Mag deficiency in the CR, NQ and BBK. The JH looks lovely and green, but is very short, and has no flowers... so this is a photo period plant.... DAMN!!!
Here's a close up of the Jack Herer....

She's very bushy, under those fans are loads of side shoots not getting any light, so I gave her a good trim down below....

Now, from above you can see the difference....

I'm still deciding what to do with her....
The last two options are a problem.... we rent, so there will be a house inspection in 6-8 weeks time... not enough to get her to finish in time. Plus the neighbours will smell the buds if I grow her in the greenhouse.
- chuck her out (and save on nutes)
- put up my old tent and give her 12/12 lighting
- shove her in the greenhouse and let the sunshine do its job
So there's one last option.... keep her vegging in the same tent as the Autos, and pack her away for the inspection, then get her on 12/12 to finish once the inspection's done and dusted.... I might even germinate some other photos I have in stock so they can all grow together. Summer's coming and it would be great to have plants on 12/12 to keep the grow temps down during the day (with lights off). I could even try taking some cuttings off the JH and do 4 of the same.
What do you think???
Anyway back to the Autos.
Here's the BBK on day 45....

As you can see, lots of leaf issues, so I trimmed the rotten ones off, and now she looks like this...

Her main cola is shaping up nicely....

Nice bit of purple going on there!
I did the same with the CR and NQ, trimmed off the dodgy leaves and a bit of a tidy up.
The NQ has stretched nicely...

She's very tall and all her side branches are also quite long, so I will be staking her out in the next day or two.
CR is also doing reasonably well....

....and again I will be staking her out a bit.
It would be nice to get rid of the JH just so I can make the other 3 spread out into the extra space, but I just can't mentally get round throwing out a perfectly healthy ganja plant!
Today it's day 48, so I will be getting them on the PK 13-14 over the weekend..... hopefully the NQ is gonna be a big yielder!
That's it for this update, more soon!
As for the headaches, you should ask your dr about Lamictal aka lamotrigine. I was put on it as a mood stabilizer (as I've got the depressive type of bipolar disorder) but it has also mostly eliminated my migraines as well.
Hope you can find something that helps you, I know how miserable it can be.
