    The one plant looks sturdy and healthy but looks kind of like a indica, we are about to butcher that ho.

    Im willing to listen and learn. That doesnt mean i wont question things (i should mention the better half is a horticulture grad)

    5gal buckets actually. Wasnt able to source dark colored 2 or 3gal pales for less then the 5gal.

    If you know very good then when you ask questions you will understand the answers .
    Before you start you next run I want you to buy orca film and line your whole room with it to include and especially under the plants on the floor , also good hoods like a super cobra or a raptor, if not just simple bat wings

    It is going to add heat to the room , it worth it . We will figure out the cooling when we get to that

    Orca Film looks like black and white poly? If so my room has it on every wall and floor, just not the ceiling.

    I really dont want to swap out the cool tubes i purchased. I know im fighting this, but when i have trmps outside of 23f or warmer i have trouble getting the room under 87.8f. This is what im using now, just with out the wings... I can put the wings on it though. [​IMG]

    Black ND white poly is no where near as good as orca film . It is far superior.
    It will.grearly.increas your production. We will use what we have to the best of our ability . Yes we will want to be able to focus the beam as best we can .
    The glass will reduce our production though , but we will still do good.
    There will be people coming in to look at the grow we should try and take questions and figure it out together if we don't know.
    I don't know everything and listen and consider everything so long as it is logical, economical and works .

    I know you will be working your ass off for I few days, the only thing I miss about trimming is the finger hash.

    We are going to have a grip of people watching this grow, several experienced California growers will be watching this grow to see how it's done.
    Make sure to hit me up when you are ready.
    There will be a little work and some funds needed , but the investment will be worth it .
    If you need funds to help let me know.
    I think the most expensive investment will be orca film.
    We will minimize as much expense as possible and maximize the use of everything we have.
    I hope the trimming is going well.

    Make sure to keep topping your baby's , we need as many terminal stems as we can get if we go with 5 gallon buckets , around 8 each .
    I like plants that love to stretch with colas.
    Most indicas do not stretch alot.

    Just keep topping them until we get a crap load of tops , you will not want to let them get root bound so you probably need to transplant ,
    If put into bloom root bound it will stall production until the roots take off again,
    We need as much stretch as we can get ,
    Are you using ebb and grow buckets?
    How is your system working ? We will want to flood the whole root system with as much water,air and nutrients we can get.
    I really like to grow in straight perlite as it hold lots of air , drains fast , can be submerged in water as many times a day as you want and never get root rot. It also eliminates lots of bug problems.

    Looks outstanding , Coco will do great so long as we have plenty of air and the roots get completely submerged in water every time it floods ,
    We want the roots to dry some to get them to stretch , flood and dry some flood and dry some , the whole root system gets utilized that way .
    Nice looking roots

    We will want to think about the nutrient system we are going to use.
    Either Lucas formula or botanicare pro formula.
    Some of the guys around here have never seen organic hydro ,
    Botanicare pro would be good with outstanding results in the product.
    Lucas is a little less expensive to use though.
    Both will be simple , both have very good results. Botanicare pro is organic having the best finished smoke.

    I still have a full run of chemicals. Im familiar with lucas formula, even made a coco coir calculator version. We could try that.

    How does the micro and bloom compare to GH or AN micro and bloom?
    If the same should be able to run Lucas with it. All we would need is mycos of some sort and a little Cal/mag

    I am sure we just trimmed no way we let leaves stay on the floor more than a few min ,
    this should give you some idea,,,
