    This is Orange Cookies #2. Same Agent Orange X Thin Mint cross as the last but a completely different pheno. This one is huge! Still smells like orange fuel but all you can see is big white hairs. I've never seen so many hairs on a bud. Hold your arm up in the air and make a fist... that's what the main cola looks like.

    Had a buddy from West Virginia come out for a visit. He took home some Tesla seeds but before he left he slipped me a couple. Here is Tesla #1. It's a high CBD strain with only 1% THC. Smells like a pine tree.

    I think this is going to be the best out of the whole batch. Trainwreck Cookies looks and smells as good as it gets. It smells just like the best OG Kush. I'll find out soon how it tastes but if I'm correct it could be the big winner. Of course I still have a Bubba Cookies and Headband Cookies to go so we'll just have to wait and see.

    This is what I've got so far.

    I was finally able to get my humidity up above 40% most of the time now.

    Only problem I'm still having, that I notice, are some of the leaf tips curling. It's weird that not all leaves on any one plant are curling and not every plant has curling leaves.

    I welcome any opinions on how things are looking.

    Looking great! I was just at one of the top farms in the world a few weeks ago and they were running big vaporizers to keep the humidity up above 60%. Some strains will curl at 40% humidity but a lot depends on strains. Strains from the humid tropics will favor high humidity. Strains from dry mountainous regions like Afghanistan like it dry.

    Great point

    I also find that vapour pressure (forces exerted upon a leafs surface relative to humidity and temp fluxes) especially at night is crucial in a lot types, especially those that like it hot during the day (seem to be happy as long as they can breathe well at night)

    and the most unique thing I'm stumbling upon, is the effect on trich size as well as gland length and anthocyanin concentration (high), and one thing i like to do is build pressure up to certain percentages for certain strains especially during the final 1-3 weeks i push the envelope

    This is something @DonPetro may appreciate a lot, as i don't know if I've contributed any other findings, lol, as well as @DonBrennon for sure, as it made all my plants go purple that round, not talking tissue I'm talking tish, ooh wee

    Ive messed around a fair bit in both sealed rooms and rooms with double intakes and this is the main thing thats been different, the vapour pressure and RH's, not so much the temps

    other than that i kept the regime almost identical.

    i suppose it could be the foliar regime or lights, but shit, a somewhat killer theory anyway

    Hey stinkbud, i am in the process of building my own aeroponic NFT system. I Have 4 plants on each fence post and decided to use a 5x5 inch instead of the 4x4 inch fencepost. I am also using a Platinum LED P600 light and all your recommended botanicare nutrients. I have attached a link to my new thread and any advice for a beginner is much appreciated. I have been following your post (read up to page 120) and over the last month slowly building up my system. Here is a link that has all my pictures. Thanks for your time!

    So i read your first post and it kinda don't make a whole heck of a lot of sense, you say you grow in an aero system but use 100% organic nutrients, I'm pretty sure no bottled nutrient is really organic so what do you mean?

    Im sorry, i dont know where you read 100% organic? i just read my post and didnt use the term anywhere?

    Hey Ben! I'd experiment with your PPM to see what your plants like best. It can vary quite a bit. My last batch was a perfect example. I had some plants completely bird-clawing on me from over-fertilization. Right next to it the Grape Ape was starving! Half the plants were happy so I just picked the average.

    Start at 400 PPM and keep it there for awhile. Some woody strains like a little more Cal-Mag. You may have to double your Cal-Mag in some cases, depends on the strain.

    Organic based nutrients are what I recommend but I like to try different nutes. I'm always experimenting. I've been breeding lately so I'm back to old-school soil.

    The Botanicare line of nutrients is, "Organic Based". It's not completely 100% organic. When I think of "Organic" I think of soil using natural fertilizers. Botanicare is close and in some ways better than soil. I can say that when you combine the Botanicare nutes with soil you get award winning bud and winning here in Oregon ain't easy!

    Read the first post where this guy explains everything , here it is

    I underlined it so you can't miss it, kinda doesn't make much sense to me. Also from what i am reading this guy is using botanicare hydroponic nutrients, those aren't even remotely organic. Finally i'd like to say real organic growers don't flush that's for salt based inorganic growers (like you are)

    Understood, I am still going to go ahead and continue the instructions he put out considering all the positive reviews. From the articles is hightimes, 420mag, and reading through this thread, it seems like he knows what he is talking about. Im not really here to argue over the semantics of organic/inorganic nutrients at the moment considering this is my first grow with more than 2 plants. I enjoy growing hydro so I think I am going to continue for now. As far as i know, I haven't heard of a 100% completely organic way to grow hydroponically (I may be wrong). If you have any suggestions please feel free to share the knowledge!

    Use a SIP , 100% organic, i'm sure this guy's methods work to grow decent quality but it won't measure up to properly grown organic buds.

    Ok sounds like a plan! I have Girl Scout Cookies and Gorilla glue, are you familiar with growing these strains and the PPM?

    Sorry for the ignorance but what do you mean by SIP?

    Sub Irrigated Planter, check the indoor section there's a thread you can read for more info.
