About to start 2 Northern Lights autos! LOL!
I’m gonna go set it and forget it for the holiday season and start paying attention next grow! LOL!
Just kidding! I know they’re still a handful but I figure with the limited amout of training, etc you can do to an auto now would be a perfect time.
Plus I really want some Northern Lights - it’s a tasty strain! LOL!!
We’ll be watching brother!!
We gotta get you into some photos soon! LOL!
Happy Growing Everyone!!!
Shoot. You’re making me wanna go dig up one of my 3 NL seeds.
I’ve got too many other goodies though. Seedsman finally confirmed my seeds are in transit (probably with yours!) to the US.
Very nice! I just got tent #3 set up. My lights fell apart (diff story for a diff time) but it’s all situated now. Can’t wait to see yours!
Wow ya setting the bar 2 high
NL is one of those strains that really woke people up
When it first came around people would not shut up about it around here. LOL!
With good reason - it’s potent and tasty - 'nuff said!
But you know, my perfect pheno-hunting brother, there is absolutely no such thing as too many seeds!
Haha my wife may disagree but she did ask what I want for xmas and I may have sent her the link to order Snoop Dog OG and Obama Kush seeds. so she might get on board with drowning in seeds, too.
Well I didn’t get as far along as I wanted, but made good progress.
All buckets connect to each other. Then made some joints and put a union going to the res. This way I can detach the res when needed
Light and fan are up. Left off carbon filter. Smell didn’t bother either of us. The way I put the fan into the tent exit I think there is enough room for the light to raise past it if needed.
Tomorrow I will add water to the buckets to test fittings.
Still need to figure out how I’m going to have 3/4 inch line leave res, and the how I want to connect it to the far bucket.
Dude - i hear you! If I could get a week of 48hr days I might get caught up on everything I have hanging at the moment. And the time change doesn’t help either. The early sunset just makes me lazy 2 hrs later.
Hard to maintain motivation when you just want to put on a flick and burn a few bong rips!
At least I have the clone grow to keep me awake until midnight! LOL!
Otherwise I’m still trimming NYD and re-watching old Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes.
I forgot how funny some of the early episodes were - not that it’s lost anything over time.
Larry is such a jerk, but he’s hilarious! LOL!
It’s pretty, pretty, pretty funny!
New season is great too. LOL!
Keep up the work man! I know you’re anxious to start your next grow! You’ll be back in the weeds with the rest of us soon enough! LOL!
The time change always gets me, this getting dark at 5pm and it already feeling like 9pm causes me to be very unproductive lol
Looking good and doing. A great job. Last harvest u killed can’t wait 4 this 1 when u get it up n running
Well seeds have just just been put in water.
New system holds water, had one very small leak upon filling, just needed to tighten a bulkhead a little.
Still need to connect water line from pump/chiller to first bucket looks like I’m going to use this and put a hole in the bucket near the top of the resting water line
*The weekend Dr. Science met Cheech and Chong!
I’m sure i asked before but what are you growing this round?
Good vibes to the beans!!
Gonna be fun to watch!!
Girl scout cookie extreme auto🤣
Hmm… It makes more sense for the line coming out of the res to go through the lid… But then I can’t open it to add water…
Well, I’m no expert. But I did pass out on the couch in the man cave last night…LOL!
Can you cut a notch or keyhole in the top and maybe find a small piece of butyl rubber to make like a flap to cover and prevent light leaks and limit evaporation?
They have it that’s pretty thick but it’s still very flexible.
They probably make like, S&M sex suits out of it or something. LOL!
You could probably use rubber cement to make a cinching sleeve like the ports in the tent.
Did you end up cutting through the tent?
I know at one point you mentioned thinking you might have to.
On a side note - I’m right there with you on this grow man - except for the RDWC thing, of course. LOL!
I couldn’t stand the 2x4 sitting there idle so I dropped 2 Northern Lights Autos and 1 Gorilla Glue auto this morning. WeedSeedExpress genetics. The NL were freebies for doing direct bank transfer, so they’re probably 5 years old And I got the GG on a 5 for 5 deal.
I use wet paper towel in ziploc method and beans were dropped around 11 this morning. At last look all 3 had popped. NLs were cracked open and the tail was just visible. The GG had about a 1/16th of an inch worth of tail! That’s an eager bean!!
I’m gonna use 3gal bags with the Mother Earth Coco/Peat that I’m using on the clones with Jacks and Mammoth P. MKP for a couple of weeks when flowering starts in earnest. I’ll probably get a little mykos into the cup and the pot for that extra boost.
Gonna top at 5th or 6th node , spread them out for a bit and let them roll. I might even let one of the NL just go native and see what she do!
This will be interesting to compare grows side-by-side using different media, but you’re planning on using Jacks too, right? So that will be a common link. Wish I had some ILGM GSCE for a real comparison test.
That would have been very interesting,
Best of Luck to you man!!
I harvested my Blueberry tonight and moved some stuff around so everyone can actually get some light. Which naturally meant I went ahead and dropped one of my Zkittlez - just one, I’ve learned my lesson with letting stuff veg too long (I’m very scared of what my Lemon Tree clone is about to do to my 4x4). Just gonna do the one ILGM Zkittlez and one RQS autoflower whenever it finally arrives. I’ll use the auto to cue me in for next wave of photo flips. hopefully everyone is done in the 4x4 by then.
Oh good news @Graysin on my blueberry
I squeezed a bud last night and what remained on my sticky little fingers actually smelled of blueberry undertones
Once you get past the skunk smell
I think she’s finally “blossoming” so to speak
Can’t wait 4 my smell 2 develop more on mines
Well all three seeds now have a tail.
I guess I’m going to be sticking them tail down into these here shortly.
I then need to figure out how often I should be watering these things.
Probably just going to put them in their net pot with hydroton and set up a drip watering system to run a few times a day or something
My build had one really small really slow leak, so I have pulled it all back out of the tent and attempting to fix
Hopefully will be able to fill system with water and test again overnight
