    Nice clean drying room. I have those drying nets myself.
    Is that 2lbs per 1000 watts you are shooting for?

    Yup......with the right strain, I can hit over that every time. That's my goal.

    I should mention I change my lights every 2 crops. LOL

    I buy cheap iPower bulbs or less than $25 each delivered off of Amazon or Ebay. Great deal for the price and quality, especially if used only a few crops. I also use their ballasts, which have been fine too for about $105 each. I also saw last night a box of 6 for around $110 on the bulbs on Amazon.

    Actually had to container some of the earliest cut stuff this afternoon, it's been cold here and the heat has been running quite a bit, lowering house humidity and drying things quickly. I've upped my overall weight estimate a bit, maybe closer to 3 lbs to 3.25 lbs. Product is really nice, here's a pic showing some purple and resin.....................click on the pic for resin overload!

    Any chance you could post a link to said bulbs and ballasts?

    Dr., go to Amazon and search out "iPower 1000 hps bulbs".........just went there, less than $25 each and $112 for 6 pac.

    For the ballast, I see it at Amazon too for $93- same ones I use. Search "iPower 1000 watt digital electronic ballast".....I'm in my 3rd year with 2 of these, adjustable wattage which i like and no issues so far when them.

    I would have copied and pasted it but I just got a new laptop and I'm downloading software..............

    Ebay prices are comparable too, if you prefer there.

    Final weight was a surprising 47 oz.......more than happy with that and I had to double check everything to make sure my addition was correct. If I had the time I could have left all the plants to finish in the room for another 2 weeks and probably would have pulled another 12-14 oz from the lower stuff. Another strain where a you learn a lot from the first grow and can dial it in the second grow.

    Either way, everything trimmed from top to bottom is covered in a thick coating of resin, has a subtle melon odor and has a nice, expanding smoke. About 25% of the buds have some purple in them but the overall appearance and bag appeal is outstanding. I haven't let anyone try it yet but by Monday I'll have seen a bunch of testers for an opinion.

    A very easy grow though, one that I've spent less time with than any in the last two years or so. It basically grew itself, I watered and did not do much else. I kept the N level higher than normal and I think it helped the overall health of the plants later in flowering- no yellowing and they stayed healthy throughout. In time, after the cure, I'll provide some pic's and a detailed smoke report........time to enjoy a bowl!

    Tried to take some pic's tonight from the iPad, nothing did it justice. But I saved the best one of the lot just some you can see the resin production, which is massive. I had never even heard of Oni's Seeds before finding them on Twitter where he has some fantastic pic's of his stuff. Only 8-9 days from harvest, and as it continues to dry, the resin keeps getting more pronounced. I vaped it for the 1st time last night..........and no doubt it's potent. Vaping i think gave it a bit more "head" in the high, but it's definitely a relaxing buzz, I spent a good part of then evening listening to music and playing my guitar. I'll reserve my overall potency grade and a taste/smell profile after it cures more in a few weeks. Make sure you look in the right corner of the picture for an amazing "flowing resin" shot.
