    could you fit a oil filled radiator with thermostat? or those clip on tube greenhouse heater bars? just a suggestion? i cant run in my usual spot until our temps get into double figures for more than 8 hours a day.

    Looking good Herk! Have you still got a journal on here? I took a step over into OG today and found you, everything seems to be going great! Not made an account yet, and not sure if I will yet. I like it here and don’t have the time to post here at times, let alone another site!

    I went with all COB's the single engine units from Cobshop.Net you should come over to the thread and have a look. I also am NOT doing no till for the first time in a LONG time. Just back to the nutes I do like from what I have used before and trying straight pro-mix with rice hulls for extra aeration and so far so good. Loving the lights and cut my power use for lights by like 50% it's a big deal lol.......

    :)

    all of the main tops were ready/ish. Should have probably let them go another week, but due to time issues I couldn’t. So I’ve chopped and trimmed them all.
    I’ve left all of the lower budisites that clearly aren’t ready, and will lower the light in the morning, I might leave them and let them go another couple of weeks. And chop the lot when I get back. She was a lanky girl and theres plenty underneath that hasn’t seen much light, so hopefully they will beef up a bit, if not off to the hash pile they go!
    There looks like a fair weight from the tops alone, so i’m pretty happy with this one!

    If i’d have SCROG’ed her then the whole lot would be ready now, but she stretched like mad in transition. So the top 10 inches are perfect, but anything below is way behind, I don’t think that would have been a problem with a HPS. The CMH is absolutely fantastic but the sweet spot is a lot tighter than a HPS (or just could be the canopy was blocking the light)
    I accidentally supercropped my favouite top 2 weeks after switch, and that branch is just beautiful so I will definitely be using that technique in future.
    Once again I’ve learnt massively from this grow, so many things that I will take into the next grow.
    I fucking love this hobby, and love sharing it with you all.
    Thanks everyone. :smile:

    WOW. So beautiful!
    Sounds like it was a good thing you went for a staggered harvest for more than one reason!
    So are you saying the CMH light penetration is shallower than HPS?! Or is this one just such a monster :P
    In any case, sounds like it won't be a problem to leave the lower bush to ripen while you're gone :bigjoint:
    Cheers on the last day of the year!

    Cheers! Yeah I think i’ve probably made the best decision under the circumstances, it allows me to dry and keep an eye on the chopped tops over the next 10 days, and let the rest catch up while I’m away, and if they over ripen, so what lol
    Yeah it just doesn’t seem to penetrate as far down as a HPS. But then again it just could be that she was so lanky with big spaces between the nodes. Those tops have definitely soaked up most of that energy lol just out of curiosity I weighed all of the tops yesterday (stems included, i’m hang drying them) and it weighed 1.5KG :smile:
    Honestly can’t wait for the next grow and get that net stringed up!
    How are the girls doing? :smile:

    OhLOL @1.5kg! Yeah that in itself will be a full harvest's worth, the understory will just be a big bonus on top of all that :D
    This grow really does make up for all the woes of the last few!

    As for my girls, they're A) alive and B) actually doing pretty well :D
    An over.view from 2 days ago
    2017-12-29_closet (3).JPG

    and yes the Cosmic Queen has grown since, day 26 from sprout, 28cm tall today:
    2017-12-31_day26 (3).JPG 2017-12-31_day26 (4).JPG

    I'm getting ready to partition off half the closet and send the NLH into flower tomorrow, day 84, at 12 full weeks of veg since sprout. She's smelling up the closet with sweet aromas and her tips look like that's what she wants to do too ;)
    This morning:
    2017-12-31_day83 (1).JPG 2017-12-31_day83 (1a).JPG
    her canopy is pretty much occupying the 75x75cm she'll have already.

    Thing is, when I thought of curtain-like partitioning, I forgot about air circulation :rolleyes:
    Or maybe I was just assuming air input on the left side of the closet from the house intake? :confused:
    Fact is, for all my overthinking, I didn't think that through enough :eyesmoke:
    So I'll be cutting flaps into the black-white foil I got as partitioning material, with the option of taping a computer fan into the resulting "window" to make sure air gets circulated into the partitioned off part...minimizing light leaking is going to be massively annoying! Or I'll just pull the house intake ducting down and use that. Air humidity has been enormously on the rise with all that foliage and soil mass in there, and I've gone from adding 2L daily to the humidifier to not even knowing when I last had to fill it up.
    But I already know now that partitioning is not going to make me very happy and I'll try to minimize the need for it in the future!
    Cheers! :bigjoint:

    Wow- those are looking big n happy! They're most definitely going to explode when ya flip! Defoliation, here we come!

    Also, for the venting, I've found that surface-mounting some of that round ducting over your fan on one side, and bending a 90° turn or two pretty much completely blocks all light from getting through the partition perforation (is that a thing?) without affecting flow rates very much... Happy New Year!!!
