    Wish I could post some pics.
    Took down the Snow Dawg & Sensi-Star 2 days earlier then called for, although they were both done, full cloudy. Caught them right before the dead leaves receeded into the bud so to still be trimmable. Bud is good. Sensi is practically white w/ Trichs. It's known as a white bud for this reason.
    I'm noticing earlier finish times by 3-5 days on most strains.
    Got some dead leaves on 1/2 the BubbaKush but the other 1/2 is healthy green. Weird hu! Like only 1/2 the plant was effected by the Nute problem. The Chem-D#4 was hurt by the Nute too but it's a 65 dayer. Looking close though so I'll keep an eye on it & harvest just before the dead leaves recede.
    The Kings is straight beasting though. Mad Colas. Just as big as my HPS Kings colas.
    The SFV-OG wasn't phased a bit by the Nute issue & is the best looking plant in the Cloak. Mad frost n nice healthy leaves.
    Everything aside from what's been cut is getting its second flush tonight w/ pure RO.
    First flush included ClearX.
    Real happy w/ the Cloak & can't wait to get the next run underway. Transplanting to 3's tom. W/ hopes they don't grow to big before going in 5's.
    Got 2, 24K Horizons coming for the next run. Thanks Doug! You tha man!
    I'll be going 27K as soon as they're available.

    Yeah, about that.
    I regret to inform on the subject in regards to the whole room pretty much.
    I really screwed this grow up.
    3 of the Kings Kush made it out ok I guess as well as the 1 SFV-OG. Aprox 8 oz each. off 150w a plant.
    The rest didn't make out so well. 3-4 oz plants of small, undesirable.
    This is the first grow I ruined w/ Nutes ever.

    My big mistake was doubling down on the first dose of the Microbe-Life Nute line as the bottles directions & the guy at the grow store suggested. The second big mistake was about 1/2 way through the grow I decided to toss in the rest of my Mammoth-P sample bottles w/ the Microbe-Life @ 1/4 strength. Each of these big mistakes that veared far from my normal feed schedule caused major death to occur in my girls & ultimately lead to my losing the grow for the most part.
    With that said, it will never happen again, that's for sure.
    I lost my shirt in a crucial time where I couldn't afford to lose.
    This happened to my whole room.
    The only plants that were salvageable in the end were the above mentioned as well as the Flo, SFV-OG & barely the Kings on the Amare side.
    So, basically, this grow was a bust due to my own idioticy. :cry:

    Good news is, the veg going in for the next run is pretty nice. Finally getting around to transplanting the SunCloak side today.
    Still have to figure out a way to cool the room as my existing Mini-Split is to big for this set-up. May have to go w/ a Stand-Up AC for this run until I can recoupe my losses & buy one the right size for this room.

    Pretty big bummer.

    hopefully i will get my mini installed also.it is from my old grow.18k for 8 by 10 flower room but recirculating with my vegroomill be able to get all 8 lights flowering and add my on demand water heater for co2 generation then.you will knock it dead this run.thats why i just run jacks hydro mix and no additives.easy and fool proof(except for my patient that used to help me)

    Sensi Star is the dogs ballicks!
    I have kept it going for nearly ten years now and it's not going anywhere.
    I have a 2016 Sensi Star in flower now from seed beside the 2007 cut to see how it turns out.
    Keep up the good work!

    looking good.sorry about your last crop.do you ever mono crop?

    Thanks. Mono crop? Single plants. No. Usually 12 to a room but now I'm running 8-10 under the Amare's & 12 in the Cloak all in one room.
    After researching Ozone generators, I feel allot of the problem had to do w/ using one for the first time. I read that they can do serious damage to plants. That combined w/ the mistake I made w/ new Nutes seams to be the issues.
    Hard learned lesson.

    Here we have one day after transplant from 6" Potts. image.jpg image.jpg The above is the next Cloak run - a few to many to fit in the next configuration.

    Really interesting!
    Full shells, without intensities above 500-600╬╝Mols but with perfect spread.
    And I see no bleaching or lightstress but fully developed plants. Nice!
    Would like to see these *flo girls full in action ... so I subbed the thread, Lol!
    This sun-cloak stuff is really interesting.
    Did you mean it will also work with other strips, let's say, with Samsung H-Series with 561c diodes? It should ..!?
    Maybe I'll try to shrink this system to the size of a computer chassis and use it in a kind of stealth box...

    *are these original flo from DJShort/blueberry sat.?
    A friend in spain growth these girl outdoors... - above 12' height and branches as long as the tops, really a stretching bitch. So interesting to see how she perform in your sun-cloak...
    Keep up the good work, I'll follow for a while...
    Curious to the Flo girls, did you have other pics or is it the first time flo grow?

    Welcome! Good to have you! Yeah, the Cloak caught my interest so I had to try it. They've got some improved versions out now.
    You should be able to build something similiar. It's not easy I here.
    The Flo i have came from clone from another grower but he did say it was DJ Shorts from his seed. Sick plant. Dank ass bud. Here's a pic of 2 big ones from a few days ago. I've flowered it twice so far. You can see the first one on my last Amare thread & the one 2 I just flowered in the Full Bore Pro-4 thread too. image.jpg image.jpg They branch out all over the place if not controlled. I've got a nice vertical one going in the Cloak this run. I'll show those plants soon. Setting it up for flower this week.

    They're doing well finishing up the next 2 days of veg. Then in the Cloak they go.
    These Horizons rock for sure. image.jpg image.jpg

    They're staggered by up to 1 month. Some are almost 2 months now. My basic veg is 2-2.5 months & I transplant @ 1 month to make them bigger. But for the Cloak plants I kept them in 6" Potts right up until about 2 weeks before flower to keep them smaller & shaped proper for the system. They only go from 6's to 5 gall. Then flower. Last time they grew allot so figured I'd try the 6" Pott veg again.
    So I'm not sure what some would consider the actual veg time on those. I call it from the day they get potted from the cloner.

    Couple days into flower w/ not much light. Hopefully I can get this beast into the Cloak by tom. night.
    This SweetBlackAngel would normally require no less then it's own 600w HPS. image.jpg We're gonna see how well she does w/ only 300w of the Cloak. To bad I loli-popped the shit outta her cuz she originally was to go under the Amare's. Still more then enough plant there to go on 1 bay IMO though.
    Got a C-99 that's a bit beat-up & gettin no direct light that's almost as big too. Either she's going in or she's getting the chop. We'll see tom.
    Cleaning up ole-busty-trusty, my secondary Stand-up AC. Selling my new 36000BTU Mini-Split for a 24000 for next run. Hopefully I can pull this one off using 2 Stand-ups. I'll be using less Cloak this time. Just to much going on in one room plus I'll be using more over plant Horizons between the bay's which takes up more room.
