Egyptian Trek Day 60:
Happy Birthday to our girls! We’re 2 months into our journey and I can’t believe we’ve made it this far.
Thanks to all the brave adventurers that have joined us on our trek.
The girls responded well to their first true feeding last week and I fed them again this morning. Ph’d water to 6.7 and runoff was 6.5 (Ank), 6.6 (Aur), & 6.7(Nef). I’ll probably flip to flower in the next week.
The Scrog screen is about 75% full and I’ve spent the last week tucking bud sites. The back half has a bud site in just about every opening. The front half is where Nef is. I’ve raised her 2 1/2 inches to get her even with the others but she seems like she’s just stopped growing and is not really into the screen. I didn’t see any problems with her other than her sheer density and I was worried she wasn’t getting enough airflow into her canopy. I posted in another thread that Mother Nature doesn’t prune her plants and I was trying to adhere to that philosophy but in frustration, I took some foliage from underneath her.
This will be an interesting comparison to see which method works better as I really haven’t taken much off of the other two. Their canopies are open enough that they haven’t really needed any serious trimming.
Of course, while trimming Nef, I noticed some of my prunings had “clone” potential I started another experiment.
I’m not sure what to do with these if they do survive. I only have 1 tent and I’m not sure if the timing will be right to continue with them but this was more of a “see if I can do it” sort of thing. If it turns out a success, I’m sure we can come up with something. Maybe another tent?
Once again, thanks for joining me and feel free to comment.
Next stop FLOWER!
