So I cleaned out the flower tent after I finished harvesting the last of the ladies and veg tent as well then washed the pre filters and then gave everything a disinfectant wipe down and a day to air out. Trying to plan things accordingly this time so I’m not pressed for space or time. Here’s is what’s I’ve got so far. GOG #1 final dry weight was 116.61 grams and GSC extreme was 136.01 grams. Still trying to figure 2 or 4 plants as 2 usually fills my tents and im not trying to grow for quantity more so quality and then ill figure out how to get quantity. Plants are now in week 3 of flower they are Bruce Banner strain from ILGM

Very nice!

Thank you! I’ve been very busy these past 2 days. I even fell asleep while staying up super late trimming then the fiance woke me back up and I went back to trimming lmao. My GSC extreme really has a chocolate taste im loving it!

Started the green crack, grandaddy purp, and strawberry seeds (yes the fruit lol) threw them in a hot, humid, and dark location to germinate in some freshly buffered coco coir with a very light seedling feed coming up to 240 ppm per 5 gal. Hopefully that will get them off the the races here in a couple days. For now I’m just watching the other ladies jar cure and burping them 2x a day. Pulled a bit over a lb from my last run I was pretty happy but always looking to improve my runs. Also I found a bee just snoozing in my irises yesterday had a good laugh at that. Told my fiance he looked a bit buzzed lmao

My 2 ladies popped up today. Side note my upstairs is not ventilated so no ac unit run there or heat so I think these ladies got a bit hot but they are off to a good start. It seems the grandaddy purp is gonna be a leggy girl but only time will tell.



Set the lights to 200 (unknown unit ppfd or mmols?) They are almost all the way up but intensity is turned up on the veg channel to 83-84 and bloom channel 0

Just a check in on the new ladies today. 1 set of leaves are starting to show. Have been misting the dome everyday to maintain humidity and they sit on 2 heating pads to keep it warm. With every passing day I’ve been slowly opening the vents more and leaving the lid off longer when checking up on them just to get them started on hardening off so its not a shock with a temp and humidity drop after transplant. Also I know the green crack isn’t center its driving me crazy as I have OCD but the cup tipped over when germinating due to some pesky cats so I’m working with what I have for now until I tranplant then ill offset it and make it look even again

Has a nice chat with an HLG representative and he pointed me in the right direction so next paycheck now that I’ve got my vehicle in gonna try to upgrade my lights for the flower tent at least and if I got enough I’ll also do the veg tent. Looking at 3 350R’s for the flower tent and 1 for the veg tent as recommended comes to $1674 for the 4 with the coupon code dude

Also I haven’t been on as much because I’ve been looking into growing shrooms after being shown the topics on another forum. Anyone here ever dabble in that or is that a hush hush topic on this forum?

There are a handful of psilocybin cultivators here. I can’t remember who so don’t know exactly who to tag in at the moment… If I think of them I’ll drop the names.

I hope you post along in here! I’m interested in making a run at it. I have 2 close friends that are using microdosing to treat severe PTSD.

I’ve never microdosed but back in the day when I was a DD I tripped for a month straight on shrooms and the day I came down and finally got a good night’s sleep i woke up in cuffs because one of my buddies came over to chill with my girl and somehow someone pocket dialed 911 and they all snitched when the cops arrived and I didn’t come to till I was cuffed. Most I’ve ever taken is 10 grams is one day and that trip lasted all weekend oh boy that was a rough one but I love tripping it makes me super happy like some would explain ecstasy

Some small brown dots on the girls this morning. Im assuming nothing to worry about.been getting bout half a syringe (2.5ml) every other day or so of water. Finally starting to see the coco dry out should I bump up watering? Spots seen mainly on the tips of older leaves towards the end

Would be better pic in natural light… but it sort of looks like water spray damage… could be from the humidity dome dripping…

The one on the left is really leggy. you may need to lower your light a little.

I figured it was from a stray water drip from the dome. The grandaddy purp on the left is what your referring to and if you look back on the very first day I pulled it out it was that tall. Currently around 200-218 umol’s on the light intensity after moving the light down. Also week 5 of flower Bruce banner. Only one plant is showing what i believe to be cal mag and nitrogen deficiency the other one looks happier than can be . Week 6 calls for no grow big and same amounts of big bloom and tiger bloom as week 5 so I suppose the correction for this would be to add more tiger bloom and cal mag? I’ve been adding 10ml of salt per 5 gal batch so I could also up that? Please chime in and let me know

I know what the FF schedule says, but do not drop Grow Big and use Tiger Bloom… TB is for when the plant stops vegging and starts blooming.

When it’s vegging, it needs the N, as you start flowering, you need to reduce N and up the PK… especially K

Cal/Mag is good to use through the whole grow cycle. When you say salt… do you mean Epsom Salts? If so, that is good thought the grow as well… not only does it add Mag but it supposedly helps with uptake of many other micro and macro nutrients
