Here goes, After a year or more in stasis, minimal ferts and minimal water, this girl gets the big tub.
After a long hiatus, all I had left were some discount seeds. Turns out they were terrible, but you work with what you got, last chance to show its best side.
Not sure what the genetics were, might’ve been a Nirvana Bubblegum.
Massive stretch, gigantic phenotype variation, some herms, ranging from fluffy sativa to a little less fluffy sativa. This is the best of the bunch, nr4.
With 12/12 Ive had to trim back aggressively twice per grow cycle.
Starting with 12/12 for veg and reducing to 10/14 to get a reasonable flowering time. Usually with 12/12 it just keeps stretching to week 6 or 7.
Last run just got cancelled because of a chiller thermostat failure, the rot got me good at week 8 of flower, just when the buds started coming in.
You can see the water cooled chiller on the res, 2x12710 peltiers and a remote 240mm rad and pump.
The res is now insulated, temperature stays pretty cool, before it was sucking an unacceptable and constant 250W . Now its only on 1/3rd of the time, 17.5-19C.
Most of the tech and power is glued to the back and side of the box, if anyone wants to see it just say.
This run I will be using Chlorine with an ORP meter, tired of the brown death, seems to work pretty well.
GHE Lucas formula 1:2, starting at 400ppm, 20ml Micro and 40ml Bloom in ~20(4.4gal)l.
250W of dimmable Samsung lm301b, adjusting based on temperature, maybe 150W before temps start climbing past 28C.
On the right side of the box you can see the carbon filter chamber.
