looks good, but very white on top. Could be some light bleaching?
It looks like a winner!!! Does it have the rubber smell to it? Maybe a fingernail polish remover, it seemed to put out different aromas but there was 1 in my pack that had a special funk going on. My wife thought that one of our dogs got sprayed by a skunk the first time that I broke it up for a J...
looks like the lights are on in that pic
The lights are on in these pictures, the one earlier was just from the phone flash as the lights went out for the day.
Unfortunately I cant really comment on smell due to injury
thank you, i had them about 36" above but i moved the lights up 12" more and shut off 3 of the lights
Crazy how much different they are in structure from the 501's which are the same thing just with the rd#1 father instead of the #2. Yours are more of a totem pole structure where mine are more of a bulbous og structure. Pretty cool!!
My Commander beans should be breaking ground by tomorrow morning, pretty excited for them. I should probably pop more than two but I have way too many babies as it is, might have to do a SOG of smaller plants just to move some down the line. Pheno hunting with almost no space is a fool's errand, and I am a busy fool.
501st OG coloring up nicely. Day 58. The citrus tones have died down a bit in the last few weeks giving way to an incredibly potent eye watering chemical/fuel OG smell that makes the nose tingle. 2/4 developed this beautiful purple coloration. The other two have a little purple in the fans and some subtle blueing in the top buds, but not nearly what these ones are throwing out. Im hoping they color up in the next week, but either way my waters every time I go in to look at them.
that last one...i need to get some 501st seeds
scott's og day 45, right ones, thats obiwan og on the left.
Well, the first 501'st OG sample is in! Tastes great, very much an og taste. Sweet and piney with some lemony hints and kushy/piney notes, surprisingly good for only being maybe 60% dry and no cure. The high is extremely potent and a heavy body stone.
Ill get some better pics in a few days once the first batch is all dry and in the jar. This is a lower nug and is not nearly as frosy as the uppers
Leeroy day 58. I was pulling off some of the dying fan leaves...smelt my arm, strait lime margaritas.
5 plants in a 4x4, scrogged, from seed. This lee roy has been a pleasure to grow, massive stretch and golfball size nugs.
What is your cob setup if you don't mind me asking ? Plants look great !!
This tent has 9 cxb3590s 3000k 80cri,drivers are meanwell hlg320-36(4cobs) hlg120h1050(2cobs) and hlg240c2100(3 cobs) and i added a string of 16 xpe2 photo red to one of the lights. In the back of the photo hung vertically is my first attempt at a far red "pontoon", it didnt workout hanging so i hung it vertically for this grow, its on for 10 minutes at lights out.
What is the reason for the lights on at lights out ? Plants are doing awesome under them . What are the drawbacks if any from hps if you have ever used 1 ? Do you need an air conditioner for those ?
The far red is a flower initiator light. Since exposure to just far red light at lights out switches the plants phytochrome state to inactive, this normally takes 2 hours of darkness for this to happen on its own. This allows you to flower with more hours of light, up to 14,10...i have been using 13,11.
I used hps for about 2-3years, before switching to cobs, with very good results from hps/mh but they put off alot more heat so it takes a lot more to run hps(need ac in the summer but not in the winter). Always running ~2500w of lighting. Enviroment would be about 80-85 lights on with hps, then dip to ~65 or whatever i have the heat set at to keep cool when lights on, so i would have to adjust thermostat. Now i have it @ 70, and lights on is between 76-80 lights with led. And i can run the entire room in the summer time. If i had more room i would fire up all my hps equipment and run them all vert style. Oh yea and i been having better density on led grown buds, oh yea and i dont ever need to buy new bulbs. I figure if i buy a new bulb for every ballast every 6 months, i could buy ~1 cob for every bulb, so i have been building about 1 4cob light every 6 months. Also have one of those indagro420 induction lights.
Thanks for the info it really helped .
So the cobs will bleach bud tops also ? I thought it was mostly the red/blue lights that did that . Does it lower your potency on those flowers ?
Just the one top in the pic got a lil bleached but it was 2-3" directly under one of the cobs until i had to take off the rope ratchets to raise my light the last couple of inches. All the other tops are not bleached. This was my first go with this strain and i wasnt expecting them to nearly triple in height. These things have been thirsty too, if i dont water everyday they get wilty, i had blumat drip system for the veg and 3 weeks into flower gave up on the drip system because i was still needing to water everyday.
