No need to be silent...
haha, I hear you.
But you know what I mean hopefully!
It's a damn shame that being in a legal state and you do everything right, and they still pop you.
It's been medically "legal" 8 months here now and there still isn't even a single dispensary in the state let alone someone who could prescribe it.
The political wheels stop at nothing to prevent progress.
Thank you! I'm always excited to hear comments about how i'm doing, not doing, etc.
Like I mentioned, I'm still a noob learning. I have read but there's no replacement for experience.
It's all about the money, no matter who suffers.
So update on the outdoor plants (2 clones from my other now completed grow)
I literally haven't done anything for these plants.
I spread an entire packet of 5-5-5 organic pellets when I planted them outside, watered it in, and have watered once since. It's rained often enough that I haven't had to water much at all.
The nugs are very big and dense, much bigger than my indoor plant achieved. I clipped a small nug off to bring inside and scope, (popcorn sized) and got the following results.
The trics are mostly cloudy, 70%cloudy/20%clear/10% amber.
The leaves at the bottom are starting to yellow. It's looking like one or two more weeks and I can chop the outdoor ones. Based on just looks, I'll probably score at least 6 ounces dried, off the two plants. Not shabby for almost ZERO input. I haven't fed them except the initial packet of organic 5-5-5 pellets when I planted them outdoors.
Don't have pics but i'll try to snap one or two tomorrow before it gets balls hot outside.
Still don't know what the fuck this things doing. It isn't showing discernable signs of being male OR female. I'll snap pics tomorrow too.
Is it normal for a plant to go this long without showing? (2 months)
So here's some shots of SSH.
What ya'll Think?
And the outdoor,
Dude that ssh seems to be adamant it has no sex at all. Indifferent haze haha. Outdoors look good though defo bro
It's late to it's own coming out party haha.
So, I've been slacking and haven't started any new grows, there's gonna be an indoor cab soon, I'm working on it slowly. It's one of those sterlite shelving units, gonna use screw in off the shelf LEDs
Here's what I have so far, ill wire it tomorrow and see if I want to change placement.
I tried for OCD like spacing lol
Ocd like spacing pleases me more than you can imagine bro. Looking good though. Can't wait to see what you do with it
loving this thread!
I know LEDs dont kick out much heat but would that many that close together cause problems?
The more things change...
This reminds me of the very first light I ever built for growing; I'd scrounged up a bunch of multiple bulb bathroom light bars, mounted them in parallel to a couple of pieces of wood and screwed 24 CFL bulbs into the resulting array!
It was great for veg but it didn't really do a good job once the plants were taller than about 15" lol
I plan on using the indoor cab as experimental grows, once the cabs done I'll fire the shed back up (after a good clean that is)
It's all about ventilation lol. I can tell you the Leds throw off less heat than similar wattage CFLs, plus during the winter heat won't be a problem it'll help keep my bathroom warm lol
Eventually once I decide what system/style I like the best for this small space, I'll build a cob fixture, I would like around 30w/sqft which won't be hard at all lol
My very first grow was with a 70 Hps and cfl supplemental lighting in a small cabinet, heat was always an issue but I got a little bit of herb and I know a lot more now than I did 15 years ago lol
Probably no updates today, Spent all day under the in-laws 2000 Camaro changing a clutch. Made some decent coin for the job though.
So... waiting for meds to kick in I got some wiring done, need to pick up another cord tomorrow to cut up.
Shits pretty damn bright lol
Here's a shot of the wiring (the plug is wired temporarily it'll get heat shrink and a box will be made to cover all the wires for safety.
And a "lit up" shot
After I grab another cord tomorrow I'll finish up and see how many wall watts it pulls.
Thanks for following along and sorry about the lack of activity!
Why didn't you just go strips?
Because I already had all these sockets and bulbs on hand lol
In the interest of making myself work on things faster, I started seeds tonight. My tap water has enough PPM to get seedlings off the ground, so nothing special for "seed water"
Got 8 beans waiting to pop,
2x White Widow Autos
2x Super Silver Hazes (I've nicknamed these "the Slow Bros" lol )
4x Random Bag seeds.
I'm truthfully hoping only 4 of these survive otherwise I may be needing to build a couple space buckets lol.
