    Thanks bro, you have a bunch of stuff going on over there, I'm busy trying to just keep track lol. But everything is looking good. We will see what happens with the GG grow....... this to me was just such a silly mistake you know, and when you try so hard and are getting the results you want it's a blow to the growing ego, especially on my second grow :shock:

    This is my meds, and I have a close family member ill now too who needs some in the form of caps, so it's for us. I should know better. But yes I will learn from it. The last plant I grew out that everyone said to kill gave me almost two ounces of some of my favorite buds from the first run.

    I'm trying my best to get what I can from the plants left in there. I am not expecting anything major. I just transplanted to lanky clones from solo cups to 1 gallon pots to see how they progress, plan is to pick the best between the two and up plant to a final container of 3 gal and put her into the spot on the wall where I lost a plant, or maybe leave both in 1 gal pots and run them simultaneously on the same wall we shall see. The plants will tell me what they want in due time.

    Your garden looks kick-ass, good job! Were the fan leaves on the plant in the back lost because of excessive heat or did you prune them intentionally?

    I stepped away on vacation for a week and lost them to excessive heat and lack of water. It's my fault and on me so I am trying to salvage what I can on these girls. Thanks for the kind words. My absence in conjunction with record highs.......

    Here's a quick shot of the Blue cheese in my Sip contraption today before lights out:

    Started the flush on the Blue Cheese today, day 49. What's there looks good, but this run does not look like it will be pleasing in the end as far as yields, but that is on me for the week away where I lost a plant and had to trim a lot off of the two that didn't have buds yet, as well as cutting off a few big branches to force the Blue Cheese to go vert.

    Shameful pics, but pics none the less.............I have a lot to learn yet

    I have been plenty happy with the switch to fabric at this point honestly but never rule anything out.

    You guys must not have a lot of heat in your living space, I gets damn hot around here, without a chiller it would be damn impossible to do. l have an AC where I draw my air, high 70's low 80's lights on, mid to high 60's lights off. But my rez to feed my Blumats is around 86 degrees. I am rerouting my intake air to exit onto the rez, also using some ice bottles.
    I would love to try it, maybe someday.

    That's exactly what my issue is the heat lol and why I have not yet been successful with DWC in my opinion. I would be interested in trying a recirculating system with larger containers to see if the larger volume of water stays cooler than single 5 gallon bucket DWC setups that also in my opinion do not hold enough water and are too unstable for PH etc as standalone units.

    Im considering making a reservoir outside of the grow room itself. Drip/timer setup nothing continuous so that noise wont be an issue. Summer months are killing me as well. I have central air but for security reasons grow room door must stay shut.
    Oan: I've always wanted to try a good blue cheese strain so i def look forward to seeing the smoke report on this

    The BC smells out of control since it was a baby it was stinking up whatever space it was in. I just wish there was more of her lol. But I do have more of the same seeds from Barneys so not a big deal

    Your res 6° above room temp?
    Something is directly heating it up

    If you are concerned about noise, check out Blumats, no noise at all.

    Yes, I believe it is the radiant heat from the bulb, I have put the intake air line right against the base of the rez. Yes it did make a diffference, The rez is the same temp as the room, 80 degrees with lights on, will check to tonight just before the lights come on. Should be a big difference.
    I like the temp of the room now that I got rid of that faulty remote temp gage.
    Thanks for the help.

    Here's where the girls were a bit earlier today, the nugs on the Blue Cheese are getting very dense so maybe there is hope for it lol.

    Ideally you want cold water it has more dissolved oxygen, in the sixties would be good not sure if you are able to hand water or not..
