Your buds look fire, I don't see any roasting ?
cant wait, my megacrop will be here tomorrow, and now have Fire OG seeds in the water, using a Perfect sun Mini, in a 2x2, going to freakin rock it!!
If next time you concentrate on getting that canopy as even as possible and about 70-80% of the screen filled before you flip you notice you will almost double your yield!
Your gonna love when these lovely ladies fatten up!
I apologise as i am just seeing this post! Looks absolutely great! And wow did they ever stretch! Cznt wait to see the yeild!
hey chaos hunter seen some of your posts in other threads & decided to check your thread out I'll have to take the time & read thoroughly as I like your concept of small efficiency oriented grow that don't break the bank to operate & put out product my single plant 200w. setup is in its first run & hopefully I get results similar to yours I like your q/b as well if I fire up another tent I'll probably go that route
When you gonna post some new pics bro? This weekend?
Hey thanks guys for the kind words. I've been perfecting my indoor growing for going on 25 years. No more big Op production runs , only for myself and family- No Cartel and no Commercial.
I still utilize all the bells and whistles the big boys have just on a smaller scale. I like everything on autopilot as much as possible, everything "temp, humidity lights, pump etc" is on controllers. This way pre teen, veg, early flower and flower can be dialed in. Even if your growing in a tent inside your house the humidity can effect what the RH is inside the tent at any given time, same with temp swings.
The best pull I've done in this space is 2.5g per watt, my max is 185w 37w per sq ft.
I also utilize my space in early March to get heirloom veggies and annual flowers going for spring.
Yes, and as a teaser there stacking and frosty
nope none. I used to use it a long time ago in a bigger situation. For such a small grow, growing fast annual weeds that grow in ditches your only cutting a week off if that. I didn't want the hassle. Nothing more stressful than to wonder what your temp, humidity, watering etc. is at when away Co2 would just add to it. I'm older and don't need the stress lol.
Looking good. I'm setting up a Jack's vs mega crop side by side here shortly. Been running Jack's for years but I like the idea of all the bonus additives in mega crop. Only a true side by side experiment will tell for sure who is better
Yeah my t-5 starts veggie seeds in the spring I'm getting away from buying tomato & pepper plants ,starting them from seed now
That's where I'm at with it. I've tried many of the high end lines and have been using GH Maxi series with additives and supplements . The bare minimum I'm looking for is MC not only replacing Maxi but also MagiCal , Florolicius+, AmromorSi and Rapid Start. <~~~ This is my basic combo that's been as good as any boutique line I've run. So far I'm very impressed ! This test run is MC only with PH adjusting and nothing else. The one thing I was expecting is MagCal decency with my light. It's holding it down.
I did order GLN Sweet candy "Bud candy clone" possibly a Florolicius plus replacement of sorts. Will use on the next run.
If I can get two good looking strains for the next run I'm going to train and not Scrog. In the future I will only Scrog one plant due to phenos can be too diffrent. Canopy management would be a lot more manageable also. Too hit or miss for my liking.
Ok gang week 5 is in the books today and onto week 6. The node spacing is filling in nicely and a lot of frost ! The Pheno on the right is as nice as I've ever saw it but this isn't a strain I'm going to continue with "as of now". Disclaimer this is a un groomed testing run.
Getting watered every day at lights on 6g per gal MC and nothing else. PH 6.2-6.3. I do a rinse every other week with GH floraKlean.
Sorry for the white balance, my normal camera batt was dead.
man, them going to be some huge buds. can tell by how fat and abundance of the pistols. Great job thusfar bro
wow those filled in quickly!
Switching to HLG QB304s light from a 600W HPS last year made a dramatic improvement on how well my little grows do. Two of the boards is 608 points of COB light vs just one point of light from a HID. Better light spread and penetration, this is done at 185W
The drawback to these lights is the amount of nutrients and supplements the plants require. Most high end multi bottle lineups you need everything or you run into deficiencies. Even the Maxi and coco blends needs more Mag/Cal added. Small micro grows like this allow us to run full sample lineups. I have a really nice Hydro store that constantly hooks me up and in the past I've tried many lines out there.
MC alone has been able to hold up on its own and so far that impresses me. The jury is still out of the finished product.
I have a bag of MC I plan on using on a gorilla grow next season. Going to use it on my ICE x Critical cross I made. Your plants are looking super so far and I hope i have the same results as you are having.
my Mega will be here today, which is cool, because my FireOG beans cracked open.
