I stick a bit in here with the 8 plant limit.. not sure if Ruderalis actually count ^^ I make me some more seeds and pollen as I started my Swazi Gold Auto Project. I will make a diary of that..

I took the more indica going Gelato down this morning before the sun came up, full moon harvest 😊.

Left the 18/6 tent on the first Jaunary.. 59 days for pre and flower. I think is the first photo i took down in Feb 😂 

Defoiled, the plant is a bit over 900g wet. As there is no way i get my dry area to 20 degrees, i hung the plant in whole, to not let it dry to fast. If your buds are dry before 5 days passed... you ruin the taste and effects (my opinion 🤪).

Put them under cover as we had a few drops of rain.. and any more weight would break the plants. Tied them down.. but the top is just getting way to heavy 😂

Took the bend one (C) this morning before sunrise. A and B will follow in 2 day steps.. not all to dress at the same time 😊 

So far.. happy with the result. Lets see if I get them in a decent way dry and into a curing jar.

Took B this morning... A only left, taking A Saturday morning. Then we can start testing 😁 once dry. Looking forward to power the 1.2x1.2 down just keeping the possible mothers happy.

Taking the Charlottes Web's next week, 9 weeks flowering, not slow either 😁 but seems to be the usual for CWs, 9-10 weeks, had to read up ^^.

The Gelato's I hunt flowered in 7 to 8 weeks outside.

one of the CW

Demessed 🤪 the 18/6 tent. As soon as i get the potency tests, i turn the winning Gelato into clones. 

IMG_20210326_110312_576.thumb.jpg.ce29fc529188a895b4aacf129ce2bfc5.jpg

Also a nice example for single QB light setup. You can handle youngsters to 1.60 tall plants in one tent. The taller ones even profit from the lower light levels.

Love it man... i cant imagine my tent without single qbs now... 10\10 for maneuverability and function haha.

I do feel that 4 single qbs actually do not light up a 1.2x1.2 area as well as i would like.
i am going to be getting a few more for the tent. maybe 6 a side instead of 4, and then dim them a bit so im not throwing my GPW out the window hahaha

for the veg tent i do those stunts 😁 

The flower tent space is for even canape and all lights more or less same heights, my ladies are all shaved 😂 indoors, no reason to have light below the main canape.

Friend works with 600 on a 1.2x1.2, bar lamps... very great results. He gets a little more per plant.. but never reaches 2g per watt, where i reached 2.34g per watt with 420 watts.

i might get me a 600w bar lamp, just to have a bit more punch for the more light hungry strains. When my ts3's give up, i will replace them with bar lamps. Just better concept for a even canape.

Hey brother, which bar lights are you referring to, if I may ask?

I noticed everyone using similar LED style lights to what I use, hanging them much further than I do, and even the same lights I have, on other people's pictures I've seen.

I find the bar style I have let's me move them close together or further apart, as needed, and although I cant hang them at different heights, I can place my plants in height order, like a class photo, short in the front to tall at the back,  and hang my lights at that angle, which helps penetrate the canapy and help fill up the lower buds.

He uses samsung v2 diodes 3000k 660nm... 5 bar, each 120 watt. On a dimmer.. with a quantum flux meter.

Okay shot, I have more or less the same setup, only difference its on a sliding frame.

Also 5 bars, and total 600w, and difference of 2 ballasts.

No meter here unfortunately so guessing on height.

Enough light ^^ If you have somebody close with a quantum flux meter, let him tell you quick the distances for germ, veg and flower.

 

Also.. what is the "Ruderalis" doing? ^^ Or what ever it may be... is slow... very very very slow.. never saw anything as slow as those plants 😂

There is also zero sticky on them.. just bushy, leafy bitches 🤣 I let them finish just out of curiosity.. and they will go compost heap once done.

Still flowering.. lets see how long..

Have a second batch Gelato in flower now.. they will be done before those 2 ^^ what also means.. I made 2 generations photos in the same time those "not sure what seeds I bought" ruderalis needed for a cycle 😂 and as said.. zeeeeeero sticky hehehe nada, zilch...  week 24 now.. also would have done 2 batches of autos.. no problemo :-rollitup

And some indoor pictures.. happy plants.

I start to worry about a plant the moment she stops "praying". Then I run my mental checklist and start to figure out what is making her a "tummy ache". And I go back to normal mode, when the patient is back to praying.

Pineapple just got repotted into 10L, next is 22, then 40 final. 22L (Velcro) and 40L (no Velcro) are fabric pots.

Enough air moving over the plant, LED doesn't burn, even very close. Not sure I make 20cm here, never had bleaching

as we would all love to have plants constantly praying, this is what I would like to get at. 

correct me if I am wrong, but you're growing in FF premium classic and using biobizz?

if you see your girls aren't praying away in their religious ways, before noticing any other problems such as discoloration or burnt tips, what's usually the first thing you think of? and what do you do in those cases?

Back from testing.. finally 😂 have the answers to clean up the tent.. still have to go there for 2 more tests.

Had three concentrates with me and after the second I skipped the third.. 35% THC and 15% CBD, about the same in the first two.. not what I look for. So... beware the CBD Depo.. they sell what fits. Charlottes Web should hover around 1% THC.. 😔 wasted time.. haaaaaaate that.

The outdoor Gelato was measured at 17%.. happy with that result. The indoor caused problems.. machine gave a error code for to wet.. what is strange.. but I go back there tomorrow or Thursday with some 'dry' buds 😁 very curious what the indoor samples will say.. used a different biobizz setup on 2 trays. The new setup already yields 15-20% better.. if more potent too, I have to redo my feeding tables 😎 

Also.. new top spot is a wedding cake with 20.7%.. not mine.. hehehe just as info.

Yes, FF green bag and BioBizz... I have some Plagron shipping ^^ and want to test that.. just for fun. No supplier local.. I wouldn't wanna depend on Post Office.

That is rather simple.. as I like to feed rather more then less. I watch the tips of the leaves. They tell me when to go water 😁 but at the end is learning a strain.. not learning to grow. You can do a dialed in grow on your first run of a new strain you test.. but that is rather unlikely. In general you need a few to get all the "special" parts of the strain.

But my general routine is daily. I lift each pot to know who needs water. If I have the same strains in a tray, I usually just lift the most thirsty and not so thirsty. That tells me to mix a bucket or no. Tray feeding makes the feeding simple.. not helping to really get a perfect result. If you aim for the best, you have to give each plant a few seconds of your time a day. The Gelato I played with now, has its own tricky part.. can't over feed them or they revolt. So cut down 25% nutes on those an had a very smooth sail. never gave 4ml of anything.. beside the flowering stimulators 😁 

As I feed each time i water, I expect more to run into over feeding issues, then under feeding. So the first change is always pure water. That deals with the over feeding symptoms for your feeding solution. Next 2 you can run into is Mg and Ca deficiency... you find pictures on the web.. Ca can also relate to white dots forming on the leaves.. not as easy to find, so I add it. Internet pictures should be your first go to. Or make some close ups and post here.. if in doubt. Not often you run into Fe issues.. fresh soil, you never ever should. Mg comes up most, if not one of your NPK culprits. Ca behind.. Fe.. you really have to use strange stuff 😁 

Once you grew a strain for a few times, you will actually learn yourself what to do and what they dislike. Is the reason I run grow sheets.. to know where to look, if I run into troubles. Once I am happy with my result.. I also don't run a grow sheet anymore on that strain and just use the information i learned before.. I am just a amateur at the end and have fun with what I am doing. 

When you start racing a car.. you don't hop in and after 2 laps you challenge a F1 Pro. You do laps and improve, the more you do on the same track, the better you become. The more tracks you drive, the better you get on those tracks. And dude.. you will crash some cars, if you want to become a professional racing driver 😁 Experience helps... after 🤔 a few hundred plants.. thank god, some mistakes I learned to avoid 😂 

My first go to is always the internet picture section.. you know how your issue looks like.. search and trust your eyes. On the way you learn a lot more as just how to solve your issue. You read and judge if it just makes sense.. common sense is all you need growing weed. 

Indoor you can mess up a lot more as outdoor.. strange but true 😁 Crap light.. crap results. Crap ventilation.. crap results. Crap climate.. crap results. Indoor you have to check a lot more factors then outdoor... so you just add those to the indoor checklist for the strain 😛

In the process ordering a system.

12 x 410 watt pv panels (25 years warranty)

1 x hybrid inverter (15 years warranty)

1x 10kw 48v lithium ion bank (10 years warranty)

1x cable set 100m plus plugs and DC breaker

1x set roof mounts for 12 pv panels

5k$, shipping 180$... about R75k plus customs. I give noise once here and installed. Is a lot cheaper on direct order from China. Should be paid back in 5 years.. so would have 5 years warranty extra on the battery bank... just that little advantage made me order. So soon no more atomic weed... grown by the sun 😁 green weed :-rollitup
