    I am impressed with your grow. I think I'm going to use your grow journal and a guide for my next grow.

    You need 2 lights. I don't think the flowering foot print on. A 600 is 4x4

    From what I've read it's 3.5x3.5 It'll have to work for this grow, I don't have the funds for another light right now and I don't want the heat issues. Thank you for the kind words. Thinking maybe next time I'll use the 600 for a veg light and buy a 1000 for flower. We'll see tho.

    Is your DWC a DIY set up or did you buy it as a kit? If you made it how much were the parts all together and total time it took to piece it together?

    I bought everything individually. As for set up time- I've tweaked things over the past two years but it now takes me longer to clean up and sterilize everything than it does to set it up.

    Ball park numbers: (been a few years)

    Tent- $120
    6" inline w/carbon filter- $140
    4"inline- $60
    Igloo cooler- $15
    Ice probe chiller- $100
    Light- $120
    Corner fan- $10
    Air pump- $40
    Airstones and tubing- $40
    Room thermometer/Rez therm -$15
    Scrog- $10 in supplies from the hardware store.
    Nutrients- $40

    So roughlyyyyyyy... idk, $700 or so total?

    If I left something out and you wanna know, feel free to ask.

    9/7- just knocked her back down. Before and afters below. Roughly 40x40x7 give or take in a few spots. Never taken clones before but I think I'm gonna try to take 2-3 tomorrow. Flipping the lights sometime between tomorrow evening and Sunday. (Not stressing about flipping right after a few cuts, let a friend take 5 last week and she didn't bat an eye) Very excited to see what she's gonna do.

    9/9 - Day 1 of flower. Just changed the lights timer, and the Rez (2-2-2, .5). Also took 3 clones (I've never taken clones so we'll see what happens.. might take a couple more tonight or tomorrow). I'll change the bulb tonight before the lights shut off.

    Day 3 of flower.

    Aprox- 47x44x7". Ph 5.8

    She's supposed to be an indica so I'm hoping I'll be ok, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't in fear of the stretch.

    ANY GUESSES ON YEILD? Just for fun. Just curious as to what everyone thinks.

    I'd maybe look into 315cmh. Two of them would rock that, over a 1000hps. Maybr im not sure what area they cover. But two of them would be nice over that giant lady. I think I may switch to cmh. I wasn't meaning your light wasn't good enough. It was more of a compliment. As in that plant is a monster and going to outgrow your light.

    I'm running a hybrid right now. That is sat dom. I didn't expect as much stretch being a hybrid. But she stretched like a mofo. Faster than I thought. Came home from work one day. And she had grown into the light....

    This bitch is drinking 2+ gallons of water a day. Everything seems to be rolling along fine other than a small handful of leaves (maybe 10 or so) that have small yellow spots in small clusters. Not sure what it is but I'm not gonna stress too much about it unless it starts spreading. Maybe the fan on the corner beat them up a bit? Maybe when she drank half her Rez she burnt herself? Not sure but will keep an eye on it.

    Picture after today's tuck and a picture of the stalk.. getting pretty thick.

    Day 4 of flower.

    Day 6 of flower...

    so far I've broken 3 tops trying to tuck them before they stiffen up too much, one being one of the bigger/best ones on the plant.. boy did I get mad. Oh well.. can't even really tell they're missing.
