They are under the Chilled 65w veg light and appear to like the lights and also Jack’s TAP. I dilute it down to 300 - 400 ph’d around 6.0 - 6.4. I was thinking I was going to have a mess of them and had planned on putting them under a HLG 260 (I know overkill). But I think I will leave them where they are.
Tent day 64 - 7 days from flip.
I wanted to mark day 7. All bud sites are 5-6" above the string.
As I mentioned previously, my intention is to have 12 individual colas. In past grows I have let more sites grow and have somewhat lost the form of individual colas. To achieve this goal I have pinched all side growth tips. I am now at the point where it is decision time.
They all are basically like this one
My question is…should continue to pinch the new side growth tips or is it time to let them grow? I do not want to sacrifice the size and form of the colas by pinching more than I should or alternately, less than optimum. Your thoughts and opinions are most welcome.
If it is topped the two growth tips remain and will eventually form two stems and colas. When I pinch the side growth tips only the main stem remains resulting in one main colas.
I am shooting for colas that are similar to these
@OGIncognito what sort of commercial projects did / do you work on? My clients were all contractors of some sort. Small GCs doing 75M or less, site utility contractors, dirt movers and excavators, electricians etc.
I did not pinch the ones with the red lines. At this point I want to see how things start to shape up. I am no carpenter but I know it is safer to cut twice. I’ll see where they are at mid week or so and then decide.
Great news on the carpenter end. I’m a glazier. Here in Wisconsin. Carpenters have a bad pension here. Have to share everything and they depend on the new apprentices to keep them afloat. I can’t wait to retire I have about 10-12 years. Need 1mil$ in mine to retire and not look back.
Many of the companies I worked with were in the Operating Engineers and a few in the Teamsters. If I recall correctly the Op Eng were in much better shape than the Teamsters. Teamsters of course have a rough history.
The widespread adoption of right-to-work laws really diminished the strength and ability of organized labor to negotiate. This very much was to the detriment of their participants. Post World War II unions built the middle class of this country.
