Massive grow bro… Is that a rat trap in one of those?

Thank you @BigEdge they seem to flower faster in the bigger containers, they can deal with the heat better, and I can be a little lazier too.

Yes, I’m always battling rats. I got one a few days ago too.

Thanx buddy. Excited to follow along with your grow. I like your style and how you got the little laddies in there finel resting place as soon as possible. Let those roots thrive :wink:

~What size of grow bags are you running?
~I see you have chosen the lighter color bags. Is this due to heat retention in the hot months?
This was my deciding factor.
~Do you top your plants to start off or are you all LST?

Have you tried any of the low profile wide bags yet? They are becoming super popular in the Humboldt and are making there way to Central Oregon. I like how they are closer to the ground. Kinda seems like they would allow you to work the undergrowth a bit easier and would allow for more LST. Although taking up a bigger garden footprint.

Lovin it buddy. Keep it up…

I am using 200 gallon bags, 100 gallon bags, and 65 gallon bags. Bigger roots equals bigger fruits.

I mixed up my used soil with new organic soil, added insect frass, dynomyco, and generous amounts of worm castings. I worked in my trim leaves from previous grow too. I use the light colored bags to try and keep them cooler . I also bought a low profile 100 gallon, and a 65 gallon low profile rain science bag, I have not used them yet, they seemed a little shallow to me for a hot summer grow. I am really digging the white rain science bags, this is my 1st grow using them, they reflect more light.

I sprayed my plants with BT a couple days ago as I have seen a lot of moths/butterflies dropping worm :bug: eggs. I usually lightly spray once a week in the morning during flower. I have heard it’s better to start spraying before flower.

I have been supplementing with simply silica or Power Bloom Si, plus Microbial mass about once a week.

I started using filter below this grow, using city tap water, I can tell the plants are happier with the filter.

I accidentally topped 2 plants, I start super cropping them early, and tie them out with vineyard tape as they grow to get those lower vegetative branches growing for more tops, wider plants, and bigger yields.

I will start top dressing dr earth 7-3-1 guano plus bloom guano in the next few weeks too. I like to hit them with fulvic acid, at the start of flower too. I also supplement with Deuce Deuce 1/2 strength for k booster.

Thank you @GreenJewels :heart:

The praying mantis doesn’t look full grown. It has been on the plant for at least 2 weeks. We were going to give the plant to a neighbor, however, we don’t want to disturb the possible mantis breeding ground, so I carefully transplanted her in a 65 gallon bag. She had been in a 7 gallon transplant bag with Velcro on one side before.

We gave neighbor a different plant, a green crack :evergreen_tree::four_leaf_clover::peace_symbol:

Mantis breading is pretty interesting. I watched a nature show about all the weird breeders :grin: non humans of course :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: very interesting show, but I’m a nature geek.

This is a cool video on some very cool mantis
