Back at it after a 17yr break. Try and make this quick so here we go.

Made an additional net and prolly put that one at 36-40in. Running this area for veg under 1000w MH until I flip these in a week or so. I’ll switch to Eye Horticulture HPS then also at 1000w same fixture. Strains currently running are SD/Lemon Kush, Wedding Cake, 2x GG4, Staples Center and Chili Verde.

Cloning:

Specs:
Closet area startef with the old school dome and CFL and added the 8 site aero cloner and both methods are working. Cuts from plants currently in veg above. Added a burble light in the for some seedlings because no room in veg tent right now.

Outdoor:

Specs: 10-15gal Gucci pots, put this out in mid July, on casters so I can move them around in the sunlight and tuck them away at night in a dark place. Running Mendo Breath (right) and Sunset Sherbet (left)

Media and Nutes using throughout:

FFOF with a dash of Worm Gold EWC. Running FF Trio; Grow Big, Big Bloom and Tiger Bloom with Bonicare CALMAG. Looking to change to Advanced Nutes next run but happy with the FF for now.

In progress:

Auto watering system for flower area. Considering ordering the Scynce Raging Kush system for flower.

Strains:

Each had a colored tags that follows it through the cycle.

I know this is not a full diary but all my clones came from DP’s…mostly dark heart strains and some others. Thanks for looking!!

This looks great! I’ve recently started back up after a 17 year break. Looks like you haven’t forgot much, nice setup you have, gonna follow along.

Why did you stop 17 years ago? :stuck_out_tongue: many seasons have passed hiding your skills…

Nice set up though, love the organisation!.. and ofcourse some beautiful plants you got there

Love the outdoor planters! I try to have a lil fun with things as well. Like my 5 gal buckets, I have Ace, Lowe’s, home depot, and Petco

My now EX made me stop when my son was born. Stopped growing and smoking. Plus back then the shit was illegal and I was growing in the garage of a rented condo. Fun stealth grow little smaller than this. But life changes and people change. Gardening is very relaxing.

Made a little cart to bring out some medium plants I don’t have room for inside. Recycled pallet and some pvc. 3.5” casters are on the way. Got to keep them up out of the reach of the dogs.

I got the eyes rolling Mmmmm from the wife so she was impressed.

Time for bud shots…I think these two have a minor PM on the tops of the fans leaves but it’s been so hot and dry the last couple days it isn’t harming anything but I’m watching it. Or maybe it’s just ashes (fires) or dust that kicked up. They kind of look like water spots. Nothing on the bottoms or anywhere else.

Sunset Sherbet (4wks)

Comparison Eye Horticulture HPS 1000w vs 690w Scynce LED RagingKush

HPS

LED:

This is at the recommended flowering (3rd week) setting. All levels maxed. Seems less yellow vs HPS and definitely deeper light penetration

Let us know what you think about that light…was just looking at them.
