    the pinkpanties came off as I predicted high on quality low on yield I feel if I had vegged longer that would of improved somewhat so now it's on to the headband which I've grown a few years back so I'm gonna take what I've learned & apply it in this grow I'm looking for a lot better results

    she is really waking up its hard to tell from the pics but she is growing out as well as up I've done a lot of topping which slowes things down but that's done soon I'll apply the scrog I've got the stardawg in the room off to the side I'm gonna clone it & the headband soon if I keep doing single plant grows I might not keep clones in the future but I had a hard time finding this cut of headband so I'm for sure gonna clone it stardawg showes promise I'll see how my friend does with it I've got family coming from out of town so I won't be able to get pics till Sunday night image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg

    the training has started & im gonna feed at a higher ppm about 800-900 I plan on vegging this until the screen is pretty much full & putting the led in when I flip the led is a vipar spectra 1200 which in all reality is 524 actuall watts one of these days the Chinese will say what the actual wattage is & not what they think it equals in hps but I'll pick the light up in the next few days long term I need to figure out what I want & focus my attention in that direction 630w. lec or a cob led as I'm wanting harvests of 1 lb is my goal & getting my room dialed in I wish I would of budgeted my growroom in when I bought the house but at that time I planned on using existing equipment but now realizing there is much more to be had at pretty much the same operating cost I really like the amare SE-450 & should not be such a tight- ass & get one just so many options & I can't rule out the ecosunlite which at this point is a viable option image.jpeg

    I pulled the screen this morning as I've got some work to do to my room when I checked in this afternoon she is growing &a consuming nutes as well so I fed heavy @ 1200 ppm. I'll either kill her or cure her they say to read your plant I'm saying she's hungry so in the next day or so we will see if I screwed up or not image.jpeg

    I might not make X-mas as I'm cutting it close this strain is supposed to stretch 4 weeks but I've started flowering too soon on my last 2 grows I'm wanting to get the most out of this grow I know 1200 ppm is high but some of those ppm,s are tea ,amino/vitamins & cal mag I think she will take it I guess in about 2-3 days we will know ......no guts = no glory lol !

    lol fair dos mate. Why you putting all that stuff in there, just grow and micro will do the job perfect with regularly flushing to prevent any lockout, end of the day best thing for plants is water at the correct PH.. Less is more. Cheeses grew 3 inches just on water but drunk the WHOLE 5 galleon res so now punching it up to 1100. Just saves stiching yourself up down the road being a bit conservative ;) lol Anyway just my 2 pence and what works for me successfully after few years trial and error also being an eager beaver thinking more nutes more plant/bud when it really is not the case - at least with water farm/wilma/DWC growing... Tbh I usually have a 1200/1300ppm LIMIT at the peak of flower lol

    But yer, listen to what I say and forget it basically lol everyone has there own ways what works for them if you can pick anything up from my advice than bloody marvellous lol

    thanks ttystikk I'm giving it my best shot & as I'm really looking at led's I'm gonna have to ask your opinions on a few things before I'm done I know you're vertical but I also know you're knowledgeable about lighting
