    Yes yet the indica doms seem to be fine with whatever I throw at them. Since my dehumidifier collects zero moisture these dayz good thing there's a ton of runoff from the giant snowstorm. I got 5 buckets to collect rain & they are now all topped off with melted icicle water. Ppm is 4 on my TDS; melted snow is about the cleanest water source I've found yet besides RO

    Lol great minds think alike....it just falls from the sky; a gift from Jah. Had to shovel all that shit may as well put some of it to good use right? I was paying like .37 per gal for RO at Walmart when it was a drought all last summer but I sure hated giving those fucks money especially for something I can usually get free from nature

    IMG_4321.JPG IMG_4324.JPG IMG_4325.JPG Here's a super lemon haze that was clawing her way all through bloom phase; she's still quite green but I gotta chop her. Got 2 more of these looking identical started same day in flower. Ugly ass plants but dey sho got perty buds...the first 2 pics are turned upside down; she's literally falling over from the weight of the buds

    Here is the last SLH and BC God Bud plants ready for harvest; these went almost 12 weeks. Thought they were both SLH but then I found the tag buried; silly me. The BC G.bud in the first pic turned a nice purple in the final weeks & smells like a skunky grape.
    Next up on deck: two strawberry sour diesel plants and a northern lights x chronic. NL X Chronic was an MWS freebie that stacked up them nodes nicely; excited about this one. Thanks for lookin; Peace

    Wow that purple one just knocked me off my feet - VERY beautiful!!!
    I imagine you'll be growing her again? :D
    Cheers!

    Yeah that BC God bud was impressive...tastes like figs or plums; very distinctive...like nothing else I've had before. Read about claims of whopping thc levels but honestly I think the super lemon haze is much more potent; can barely finish a bowl of that with out a thousand yard stare. Funny you say that because I just dropped the last bcgb bean in the dirt. Hopefully this one pops off without a hitch; so far only got 1 out of 2 to germinate.

    Haha! Fingers crossed then! :D

    lol @a thousand yard stare, I can just see it
    Nah, the highest THC level isn't really what I look for (leave that to the youngsters lol), I like myself a nice many-faceted weed - sure, it can be strong too, but actually I have begun pondering less thc and more of all the other cannabinoids. Will definitely be trying out some of those over time
    Cheers!

    For the record, not like anyone really cares, but so far out only 2 of 3 seeds..the blueberry headband and blue dream.. sprouted up after just 2 days in moist soil on a heat mat. Still waiting on the BC god bud bean to do something...not sure it will though it was tiny & white; looks like it was a pulled bit too premature to me but time will tell.
    In other news here's some pics of the northern lights & chronic plant reaching week 11 today; imma chop her later on. Check out the "Christmas tree" shape bud structure; smells like that old school dank I remember from long ago. Have not seen either of these strains around here since the 90s so figured how could the cross be anything but great. IMG_4428.JPG IMG_4423.JPG

    2 more beans a- popping this am and still the BCGB is doing nothing; knew it was dead. Oh well got another super lemon haze and the last strawberry sour diesel to germinate...3 days & bam they sprouted.
    Fuck you BC seeds! How you gonna sell peeps 2 our of 3 dead beanz? And in a breeder pack no less.... one plant from a $45 investment psssht wtf
    end rant;
    In other news these 2 SSDs are next up on deck; and there are now 4 NL x Chronic clones behind those.
    The ssds have only been in the bloom room for 7 weeks+ but they triggered flowering earlier in the veg tent set at 14/10. So now they look like they are in week 9; these pics are from a couple weeks ago....

    Lovely specimens! What does 14/10 light cycle do for the plant?

    It will basically sex them, and almost veg them, and flower them, all at the same time.. as well as tell you if there is ruderalis or not in them. from 14/10 you can go to veg or flower with less stress than going from backwards from 12/12 to 24/0 or 18/6 .. the only exception is ruderalis crosses of course, or what they call auto flower strains, those will start flowering and cant really be stopped at that point. But still a good tool sometimes, when space and time is limited and seeds are a plenty, and clones are low, like when starting at a new place.

    Very interesting.. I'll have to keep that in mind for the future. Since you mention autos, I have a g13 Pineapple Express auto was wondering the best light schedule for em.

    Cheers on that insane op you got goin on man. I'm envious good for you investing in what you love like that

    Some amazing photos @Richard Drysift !! How are you liking your mix, I've read the beginning and end of your thread just gotta read the middle now, are you still happy with your recipe! Just curious if you're finding any tweaks you might want to endorse for next time and other fellow growthers?? :D. keep it up man, gonna be a treat to watch

    They can have a tendency to stretch a little quickly and a little earlier, so for me, if I'm gonna do an heirloom run and suspect there may be some ruderalis dormant, and still want to train, I like a little less far reds and deep reds and to get in a bit closer with a mix of cooler spectrums, low wattage. But the other option would be to ramp the wattage up to more than you're flowering in normally, that can help stack too :)

    Hope you don't mind me chiming in, @Richard Drysift ! we'd like to keep your thread a bud porn show! for sure

    If you lower the hours of light exposure gradually by an hour per week while they are still in late veg phase you get a nice tight nodal "stacking" like you see in the top SSD cola pic above.This type of bud structure yields a few g more per cola in my experience. When I used to go from 18/6 right to 12/12 many strains get stretched out and lanky af. When the light is decreased slowly it sort of mimics the Sun's natural cycle in mid/late summer. You never see outdoor plants that are too stretched but many times indoor plants that have been flipped abruptly in the traditional way need to be tied all kindsa ways or the buds will be laying on the floor by week 7. Too much stretching allows for long bareass stems that yield nothing at all.
    Try reducing the hours of light in the weeks before you plan to flip by an hour each week. Go from 18/6 to 17/7 for a week then on to 16/8 the following week. You can continue on to 15/9 but some strains trigger flowering at 14/10 like these did.

    Wow very interesting. That makes a lot of sense. If I'm putting in a scrog, though, would stretching after immediate 12/12 benefit yield bc it has support and light exposure?
