    damn. you think 24hrs veg is overkill? maybe i should try 20hrs...gonna have to do some research on that gas lantern method. lower electricity bill always nice. you got pics up of those bog strains? they seem like winners. no experience with any of them tho

    24 hours veg is over kill you don't give the plant time to break down the sugar it produces I know for a fact for me 24 hours on was not good for my plants especially with seedlings. 18 on 6 off is standard a lot of people I hear are running 6 on 2 off 3x a day and the results are great. Makes sense the more the lights are on the more sugar is produced. But when you leave the lights on 24/7 plants breakdown the sugar at a much lower rate. Now for me I just tried the GLM/GLR for the first time and there are plenty of people who like it and plenty that don't. I can say my screen filled in real good and I will see how the stretch goes I'm on day 5 now so stretch for me is over in 21 days And I want to save some of my electricity bill cause of multiply rooms and I want to set up a tent for breeding

    will go down to 20 let them adjust then go 18/6 for sure now. whats GLM/GLR? working with 8ft ceilings so ya stretch always concern as well. once this perpetual gets smoothed out (still trying to figure best way for time how to do that with 3 rooms) a tent would be perfect as well for all my mamas in 3rd room. just don't want to get rid of any. lol. well just got notice in email. got a certain special delivery waiting for me in my mailbox at home. Probably just start trap star and hold up on the blue steel and kimbo. got too many varieties already veggin

    In my experience, you will get faster veg growth with 24 hrs of light. For the way i do things, the veg growth was too fast, I would have to take my clones the day of the 12/12 flip. If the clone didn't make it, i would possibly lose that strain if i wasn't on top of it, once they are in flower my clone survival rate drops. With 18/6, i can preserve genetics much better, as i have multiple chances if there is an issue. Also, they will show sex much faster under 18/6, so if you like to pheno hunt, this is a benefit. Last, but certainly not least, you will get tighter node spacing on 24/7. The way i run, this is a bad thing b/c i get more waste since there is too much in the way for the lowers to get light. I actually get better yields with node spacing that isn't as tight. All you have to do is run a GG4 dominant plant to realize tighter nodes aren't always better for yields.

    thanks for sharing some of your experience. failed to consider clones not surviving for new strains. and i do very much enjoy pheno hunting with my limited experience its been very fulfilling for my scientific mind to learn about each plants genetics. i noticed several strains are not responding well to 24/7. i did not know that sex shows more often in an 18/6 setup. thanx man

    Wats up peeps, One of my males started throwing pistils i had him jammed in a closet with t5s and grew into the light, it was definitely enviorment heat that caused it, wat i wanna know is the pollen i collected before it hermied still good? And wat about the pollen after it hermied?

    I would run it again if you took clones to be sure. The pollen will be good no matter what, it's the knowledge that the offspring may carry a trait that could make them herm prone.

    Blah, the one site I've ever posted pix on gets attacked. Felt like a refugee trying to get back to this mofo. Kimbos smelling like hard candy'd fruity pebbles if that makes any sense, sticky with some greasyness to it. #1 & #3 smell this way. Definitley different phenos. #1's calyx to leaf ratio and stature is what I'm looking for. While # 3's stackage to date and girth is the desirable trait thus far.
    Aside from being so leafy, #3 appears to be ahead IF this were the clone run and I actually got to get my hands on them for torture. Can't wait to manipulate these bitches! Pissed at myself for waiting so long to soak n drop 'em. Got couple of pics. Probably not gonna upload em even when the option becomes availabe again.

    Agreed. Push it to the brink on a clone run and see what happens. Best way to test parents. I haven't had/heard of any interex issues with kimbo but better safe than sorry.

    To each their own there is no right or wrong way here if I weren't concern about electrify I would run 18/6 but my girl are just fine

    I'm running 18/6 now good results. I actually been so damn busy haven't even dropped trap yet. I'll put 4 down in some water today. Slacker I know.

    On a side note. Strawberry Banana Sherbet looking sexy so is Taffie and Strawberry Fields.

    I'm still newb. Going to start a new thread for "best vs fastest way to determine sex for rookie pheno hunter"
