    Random mid week ramblings,

    The bud sites are really stacking and over all plants look good for such little effort in the nute department. I can honestly say Mega crop can hold its ground alone in a optomized grow inviroment.

    Great grows are only good as its weakest link, light, temps, humidity, nutrients, grow medium, air exchange, genetics all play a roll. Having temps and humidity on controllers and being able to set them to what ever you want them to be is key even in small grows. I know some can get away with just a filtered exhaust and a clip on fan but your space is dependent on how the rest of the world outside is doing.

    I don't chase anymore, I can be out and about and not worry about watering. For anyone who is a smaller hobby grower, we can have the same automation and toys as the big boys without the expense.

    I did a light pruning on the gals "I don't defoliate and hate that word" just cleaning up now that the stretch is about done. I still have plenty of headroom "half the tent" if I ever need it. I moved my filter outside my tent and made my own inline.

    I'll get some updated pics up at the end of the week.

    Jacks, Veg+Bloom, Lucas, K.I.S.S, all need multiple supplements and/or additives - Mega Crop has been a true one and done nutrient. My next grow with it I may play with carbs during flower, still on the fence.

    right on. Im using Kindsoil/FFOF mix, but man, its sooooooo slo then to coco. Then did test of coco/ffof mix, with AN ph perfect, much different pace. was just lookng for something simple, this looks like the alley im looking for.

    Prob be coco/soil mix from here on ever, with this mega crop supplements.

    i hand feed, how long does the mix last before going bad? I kno PH perfect AN stinks like horrible after 2 days it seems. like sewage almost, using RO water at that.

    Royal Gold basement mix I've found t be the best compromise to coco and soil. It's got a lot of great stuff mixed with it out of the bag.

    Surprisingly MC stays stable in my Rez for days. It doesn't smell bad at all once mixed, in powder though be careful ! I'm only doing 7 gallons at a time then clean and remix/fill.

    One thing I notice is that compared to other nute mixes MC rinses clean from the res and pumps. With Maxi I needed to also use a scrubber.

    awesome man, thanks for the info. I mix 16oz at a time for my little coco/soil pots. so every day i have to mix a small batch, pain in the butt.

    I also said the kindsoil/ffof is slow, but i guess its hanging tight with the coco/soil mix. Now all i need is the QBs, HUH..

    I did my own stripbuild, jury still out on that. so i got alot of stretch from my testers because I had them far from light. I have like 6inch node spacing LOL..

    Ill throw a pic up, its comical. its under a scrog, can probably loop around the whole tent with one of them,lol..

    Thanks again Chaos,

    Im going to be using it exclusively on my next flower run. I got the 240g sample bag which according to their mix page on the website should be enough to get me through an 8 wk flower period. Your crop looks great @ChaosHunter and I hope for similar results using it.

    Also, I'd like to see more of your "double bud" next time you're snappin pics. If its what I think it might be, you're in for a rare experience with it.

    Will do ! When I topped both plants and started with MC the growth was so lush I didn't catch that two sites started growing together, the stem is flat and wide.

    Oh ya, it sounds like you have whats often referred to as a polyploidy (arguably with some around here). Crazy looking buds that look like mohawks. I had one and it was crazy as hell. Super rare, looks awesome, but the bud is for shite. Post pics please.

    I was looking at some of his leaves and they look really good. I thought I saw some 7 blade and even 9 blade leaves? Are those common? I usually see 5 blades and once in a blue moon 7 leaves.

    Midway through week 3 I figured I would grab the other camera and take some shots "it doesn't white balance but does better macros".

    Everything is doing nicely for the genetics they are.

    9 leaf , when scrog'ing it allows plants to reach maturity in a small space.

    Nice. Looking great. Are nine blade leaves really rare? I do not recall ever seeing one but I do not always count them. My impression is really healthy plants mighthave 7.

    Won the Instagram contest "thank you GLN!" and placed a order for more Mega Crop and added there Sweet Candy for the next round. I love the fact I don't have numerous bottles of sample lines and nutes taking up real-estate in the grow area. I am also a huge fan of https://primordialsolutions.com/ for soil and hand watering also "powerful stuff".

    I'm sold on GLN Mega Crop though. Love the heath and vigor of the plants and its so easy !

    Great results so far for sure. Usually I would be chasing down a Magnesium or Calcium deficiency in Coco around week 3/4 in flower. Hopefully with GLN Mega Crop those issues are gone.
