    I've had these lights for about a year, in a 2X4 tent with some T5 side lighting.

    First, here's some fire from my last grow. This is a Tangie male/Rainbow female cross I'm trying to develop:

    fruit stripe bud.jpg

    It smells like Fruit Stripe gum if you're old enough to remember that.
    Crazy orange pistils and lots of trichomes. Awesome delicious bud. I have 88 seeds stashed that I will use to find a pheno and try to stabilize it this Summer/Fall.

    Right now I am starting a new grow of 2 different strains. One Sativa (Tangie) and one Indica (Purple Valley Grapes). I've been able to keep Sativas and Indicas in the same tent by keeping the plants real squat.

    Feb 26: Here are the 6 in Solo cups after they popped:

    All in Roots 707 right now. Watering with 1/4 strength CalMag. You can see one of the Tangies is a runt.
    Sometimes that just happens. Same soil. Same light. Same everything. Sometimes it's just that particular seed.

    Mar 5: Moved them all to 1 gallon containers. before their final transplant into 3 gallon smart pots.

    You can see the Tangie runt much better now. Gonna grow it out as far as it will go. Eventually I will pick 3 females to finish in the tent and a male to flower in a closet.

    Tangie on left, runt in the middle. (PVG on the right).

    All looking good so far!

    Mar 12: just starting their third week of veg. Nice tight node spacing with huge fan leaves. No NPK introduced yet. Just what's in the soil. Still adding 1/4 strength CalMag every other watering.

    Plants look very healthy. Do you have pictures of your lights?

    Been an interesting month.
    Was on a couple trips ... plants got rootbound quick in 1 gallon pots.
    Came back and transplanted, then topped a week later.
    They looked haggardly for a bit, but they bounced back and are in flower for about 10 days.

    Three on left are Purple Valley Grape. Right is a Tangie.
    Gonna pull the third from the left to give the other 3 more space.

    Tent is starting to smell pretty strong. Will get some closeups when they start throwing more pistils.

    Got a little ahead of myself watering/feeding so they're drying out about 5 days now.
    Avg high 75° Avg low 59°. Ambient temps.
    Will water tomorrow.
    You can zoom the cola pic and see the trichs starting to develop.
    Not sure what week it is anymore.
    This one is going by feel.
    The tangie at the end is behind the purple valley grapes in bud development.
    Sativa vs. Indica.

    Heads up. 59F is pretty low. Depending on humidity you could start to see PM. Could you get your lows into the mid 60’s?

    I know ... 59 is low.
    That's the lowest it goes.
    Always on the lookout for PM.
    I don't get it on my property (roses, shrubs, fig, apple) often if at all.
    Probably just jinxed myself.
    I do like the 16° temp swing. Especially on the Indicas.
    But no, I can't run a heater. It shares a room with musical instruments and a brewing setup.
    Cheers!

    PM not only comes from low temps and high humidty but also from large temperature fluctuations. Just keep that in mind.

    Some cola pics.
    Lots and lots of pistils just waiting to recede into swollen calyxes.
    And it's like a fruit salad when I open the tent.
    The purple valley grapes are especially fragrant. Like a grape swallowed blueberry.

    OK ...i haven't kept this up like i planned.
    Next one for sure!

    Already cropped and topped the middle PVG.
    Quickled a half ounce for immediate consumption.
    Nice purple hues.

    IMG_20180529_200958.jpg

    Still have one PVG which is denser than the already harvested one. Leaves starting to purple. Smells insane. Blueberry grape jam. Ready to chop.

    IMG_20180529_200456.jpg IMG_20180529_201124.jpg

    The Tangie is as she has always been ... behind. Gonna let her go an extra week.

    Both Indicas are chopped and cropped.
    First is in glass.
    Second is hanging.
    All that's left in the tent is this doll:

    There is nothing like a sativa if you like hard nugs.
    These are like rocks.
