I started a growth table in my notes just to track this ‘pedal to the metal’ acceleration… 'cause… Science! :nerd_face:

Yes, you are correct, you get faster growth in hydro… :kissing_heart:

Not Fk’n up yet!! :joy: :rofl:
let me get organized…

Actually there has been some “learn’n”, I haven’t grown this time of year, so it’s been an educational experience getting the in-house AC sorted out (with a small modification to house). Other than one complaint about whistling in an air vent - OK!
TL:DR

My lung room is getting priority… :+1: :sunglasses:

What size pots are those? 3-gallon?

Hi ReikoX,
They are 5 Gallon pots, but I’m sure they could be done in 3’s.
Especially seeing what everyone did in solo cups :joy: :laughing: :+1: :sunglasses:

That’s what happens to me with Mr Sparkle’s posts (no tagging icon8|nullxnull :sweat_smile:), too rich and technic for my poor English and growing skills …

I think the only difference between 3 and 5 gallons pots (for indoor growing) is the watering frequency, specially after reading the solo cups contest, I only use 3 gal from now … :sunglasses:

Honestly I just finished in 3 gal and had plenty of room left. Already have 2 gal bags on the way :speak_no_evil:

I was looking at the plants tonight thinking about that… :thinking:
The soil I’m running would be fine in a 3Gal. I could be running a milder soil in the 5Gal. for these plants.
I had some Jack Herers that were big eaters. Sucked everything out of 7 Gal of soil. I’m learning to match the type of plant to the soil mix and pot size.
So basically, 2 soil mixes and two pot sizes (maybe three).
It was a bit of a ‘rodeo’ getting the temperature under control in the lung room as I haven’t grown this time of year

You are correct.
I started with 7Gal.pots and moved on to the 5s and now I see 3s will work fine. I’m saving the 7s for long flowering sativas. At least I won’t be burning through dirt so fast! :rofl: :laughing:

@Gpaw…I save and re use my soil for seedling.

I saved my last grow and was surprised by the volume. My wife has previously been making off with my spent soil for her projects… :rofl:
I’m going to test and amend from now on. I love the no-till grows here. Some folks really have it dialed in!

This is what thirsty clover looks like

I haven’t grown this time of year so I’ve been reacting to temperature shifts etc. So after a little surgery to the back wall of the closet to add an air return. I managed to get the lung room under nominal control. Well, that and re-balancing all of the air vents.

Happy Summer Solstice!

Looking good so far. Sending positive vibes your way. This one is looking about ready after about 13 weeks. :grin:

Thanx ReikoX. That ol’ girl is looking great.

I was surprised to see fem pre-flowers popping out up the stems as they were hitting node 6~7. As if they couldn’t get into flower fast enough. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised, RQS said flowering 5 to 7 weeks and harvest as 9 to 10 weeks after sprouting so 3 weeks of veg is reasonable (just seems rather quick).

I learned something cool in regards to RQS packaging. There is a hidden date-code!


check out the “13/18” printed in the pressure sensitive adhesive.
