  1. I think it would be really dependent on where you live and seasons. In the winter I only get 8-9 hours of sunshine a day. I'm sure with enough panels and storage batteries you could make it work but that could get costly. I would look at your electric bills and see how much you are averging to get a idea of the system size you would been.
  2. Dried, trimmed and jarred. 4oz of the smelliest shit I have ever smelt. I thought chuckys bride was a stinker. Last week of flower and during the hang dry my carbon filter could not keep up. Even now when I empty jars during cure I have to put the buds back in the tent with the carbon filter because just 10 mins out this morning my entire house still stunk when I got home from work 8 hours later. Chucky had denser flowers , these are a little airy but not bad. I'm telling you all perlite hempy buckets with osmocote crf fertilizer is a very easy way to grow with good results. I didn't have any issues this grow. Only additives I used was cal/mag since I was using RO water and hydroguard. Also 1 tsp of Jacks bloom booster for 3 waterings during weeks 5 and 6 of flower(Definitely not needed I just had it on hand and decided to give it a go) Never tested or adjusted PH or anything, no deficiencies just happy plants all grow. Definitely helped having the bigger buckets this grow,, the one gallon buckets from the chucky grow caused alot of issues.. This grow outperformed my previous grow with octopots.
  3. Also looks like I may have some inadvertent seeds. I didn't poke around to deeply since I did just a quick trim removing large leaves. Found some popped bananas. Doesn't really matter to me since it's all personal use and I vape everything. I actually hope to find some seeds.
  4. Got them chopped and hanging. I dry in my tent. I have the exhaust fan at its lowest setting. Do you guys have any other fans going if you dry in tents? Currently I have a small fan turning on for 15 mins every hour. Would it be better to just leave it off and use the exhaust fan as the only air circulation in the tent?
  5. Day 51 of flower. Could have chopped them today, mostly cloudy with 15-20 amber and still some clear tric. to give them one more water and plan on cutting them on Wednesday. Decided against revegging.
  6. So a question about revegging. You cut the tops off and leave some small bud sites from the bottom of the stems and then turn the lights back to 18/6 correct? Then do you just takes clones from the reveg and make a mother plant?
  7. Day 42 I fed with jacks 5-12-26 twice this week and now going back to plain water for the remainder of the grow. Some of the pistils are going orange so I'm guessing maybe 2 more weeks. Will be removing fan leaves tomorrow. The smell on these plants is regoddamndiculous. Reminds me of Jilly bean from TGA, fruity bubblegum. Starting to feel bad about not being able to make seeds and save this strain.
  8. I got these seeds as freebies. Probably a stupid question but Is this a pure cbd strain or is there thc as well? What's the effect you get when smoked?
  9. Day 35 of flower. So far running on only the osmocote CRF granuales as fertilizer. Today's water I added 1/2 teaspoon of Jack's bloom and see how it handles it. I do have the Jack's pk boost which I may add in a week if this feed doesn't show any over fertilization issues. Plants are growing like champs.
  10. I have a big enough seedbank to not really care about losing this strain. As long as I have my stash of Chucky's bride f2 Im fine. Plus I have so many strains I haven't grown out that I'm not going to mess around with revegging .
  11. Lazy mainline, I basiclly topped and grew out like a X with 4 branches and then topped once more. I let whatever was coming up and not I the way of others go. One plant was growing sideways so I had to improvise.
  12. They are going well. 21 days of flower and smelly , just defoliated them today. Only ended up with 2 girls and unfortunately the male I selected to keep to make seeds just stopped drinking and growing and wilted away . gave up today and threw him in the compost bin so unfortunately this strain will be lost for me. I will upload some pics when lights come on. It wasn't that I didn't like the Octopots, they worked fine, absolute thickest stems I have ever seen on a plant, but I really like the simplicity of this water only hempys bucket. I got the same return with 2 plants in hempys vegged for 1 month than I did with 3 plants in Octopots vegged for 2 months. I will admitt that I was experimenting with a new style of growing(tried mainlining for the first time) so I don't really blame the Octopots for the low output because there's plenty of evidence that they grow monsters on this forum. I think I was just trying too many new things at once(Octopots, new nutes, new growing style). I will probably give them another go next round , will add more perlite to my promix next time, I think my mix was staying too wet toward the bottom, roots werernt growing into the resovoir like I see in most grows, they were coiled around the bottom of the grow bag.
  13. I have had these seeds in my fridge for many many years and finally decided to pop them. My last run with Octopots wasn't a great one, apparently I'm the only person who can fail them. I decided to go back to hempys buckets. These are 2 gal buckets 100% perlite. Water only grow using 4 tbps of osmocote plus CRF fertilizer pellets mixed in the media. I may add some jacks bloom later flower. Using RO water with 1 tsp of calmag and 2ml of hydroguard per gallon Started April 1st so 1 month of veg. Probably going to flip Sunday depending on the growths of my last toppings. I'm really bad at determining preflowers, it looks like 4 girls and 1 male which is perfect because i want to make some seeds to preserve this strain in my seed vault.
