Week 9 Day 65

I came home at 3:00 pm during which my lights are supposed to be out and plants in Darkness. However, my lights were on. I shut them off immediately. My son Denies turning them on...
So I asked him... what time did you put Ice packs in the bucket? He said 12. Noon. I said okay were the lights off..YES They were Off.

So now I'm like...My timer has been working and no problems. Last night they came on at 6 pm as they should have...What is wrong?

I looked down at the plug into the socket and the lights were plugged into the Always-on/ No Timer Socket.

I asked my son did he do this...He says NO...SMH!
Did you leave the house today? No...Okay...Then you Did it..

You obviously unplugged it either by accidentally stepping on the cord and plugging it back into the wrong socket and the sad part is he is still denying the ONLY answer to this problem.

I will have to stay home after this week and not go back to my contracted job. This is just pathetic. I have this much incompetence residing in my home. 3 weeks ago it was he who tried LIFTING my plants by the bucket lid (while they are RDWC) and with the pressure of the water and pipes were chipped which caused my reservoir to leak for 4 days. Soaking my bedroom floor. If I didn't come in and catch him, he would have denied that as well.

The lights were on for 3 hours. So, I will cross my fingers and hope they don't hermie

Day 65

Here are some Pics of the Roots...

They are HEALTHY and It shows with the stalk being so Thick..

Both Girls have well-developed Roots and are lightly tented Tan from the Compost Tea by Heisen..
No slime I might add...Looking good..those sexy legs.

The Roots Grew and wrapped themselves around the air stones..(to which is why I had to take a peek at them)
I bought air diffusers and they will help the plant get more Evenly distributed aeration. Which will accelerate growth.

I put this Scrog together before I decided what to do on my grow.

So my first thing I did was buy 2x4 metal with the last coating.

Well it was in the corner and with the girls growing 3.5 inches overnight..I knew they needed to be controlled with LST.

Utilizing my screen to open light to the up and coming bud sites so

notice the hairs .. they are coming along Nicely
I ordered another Support Bar to hang the lights 3 to 4” from the top.

Hey GrassBurner...

If you only knew ...I have called off work. Sadly my son is 20 years old and doing the same thing that got him a repeat of his Senior Year
Xbox One...All Day
He either doesn't Clean up after himself or doesn't help on the plants so he cannot miss his gaming? Seriously...I was talking to him
and he got pissed cause I was blowing his high..
I said...WHO GIVES You Your HIGH? ME, now get the Fuck up and Change the IcePacks every 4 to 5 hours? C'mon, that's too much to ask?
Empty the water bucket from the Portable AC Unit ONCE while I'm gone? Too much to ask?
We as fathers only want the BEST for our Minnie Mees lol...We don't want you repeating our mistakes..

However, thanks for stopping by GB...

Hello week12 Day 84 WEEK 3 FLOWER

Well, the girls are just...GROWING!

They have completely filled the Tent Now. I wonder if they will watch their height as women watch their Weight?

They are Now 6" away from the lights. The lights emit a low heat but I will Have no choice but to try and raise the lights on tomorrow's lights.
I am trying to construct some 2 Inch wires to hang and it's hard to bend the wire at such short dimensions...

However, I have Pictures and if You have suggestions chime in...

Again..Nutes are the same..
Though the Girls are drinking about 1-1.5 gallons every 2 days..Is just crazy. I'm afraid to even look at the root structure.
Their absorption is just ridiculous.

Week 13 Day 91 WEEK 4 FLOWER

Its been a while and there has been some growth. The nutrients have remained the same. I am considering an additive. If I don’t see a substantial increase by next week. May have been my fault since I miss dosed the Molasses. However that has been corrected and the buds are fattening up.

Week 14 Day 98 WEEK 5 FLOWER

Just added a Chiller to the Family. I found one used in GA. An Active Aqua 1/10 hp Used for 1 grow and the seller had to sell his equipment due to a loss in the family which was indirectly connected to the project. So he lost his desire to grow. My gain for $175. It is almost brand new. Nice to relax and not worry about changing Ice Packs to keep the roots cool. Of course I had to pay $40 for shipping so $215 vs $375..Not bad

This is crunch time for sure. I decided not to get the house right now but instead, move to a bigger place. Well, my apts have a remodeled 2Bdr 2bth available on the 15 of Jan well ahead of my harvest schedule...
Im going to have to move the girls stealthily in the am while everyone is sleep or definitely in doors. Im hoping the move doesn’t shock the girls. They have come to far..
Sadly another apt won’t be available again until June so I have to jump now!
Meanwhile, the girls are showing Magnesium and Potassium deficiencies. I will have to address before the move so they are as strong as possible
