I am just veging up the seedlings now.The MadSci are busting out.They are healthy and growing thick branches right from the first node.They are 6" tall with 9 nodes.They have a full canopy 12" wide.There leaves have wide leaflets.The other MadSci that I grew had narrow leaflets.The beans that I got from a little bird, I will call bird.It is (Columbian Gold x Lambsbread)x(Big Budda Cheese)= bird.I flipped the bird yesterday.The rest will have 1 or 2 more weeks of veg.

I got another blackstar 180 chrome to replace the CFLs that I was using.The CFLs were adding up to about 150 watts.These LEDs pull 105 watts each x 2 now.In theroy I should save on electricty and improve yield.

How tall is your space? Are you finding that the temperature is climbing at all with the addition of the second led panel? My panel pulls 320-340 watts (depending on mode) and gets my little room pretty dang warm.

After 2-1/2 weeks of 12/12 all the plants have shown there sex. The 2 MadScientist and the Sugerpunch were fem seeds and are girls. Out of 3 anna seedlings in one bucket, two are girls. Out of 6 Bird seedlings, two are girls, both in the same bucket. One bucket ended up with no girls so I refilled it with three 5 week old seedlings a friend was veging. Two of these are CG x LB x Ms U. The other is BD x BD. gallery_7552_3767_979054.jpggallery_7552_3767_3199769.jpg

The plants are at week # 5 of 12/12 and are doing well except MadSci # 1 became deficient in Mag. Thanks to the people who helped me identify the problem, she may recover enough to finish. gallery_7552_3767_213313.jpgbirdgallery_7552_3767_3750562.jpgannagallery_7552_3767_3304629.jpg (CG x LB) x MsU , these are at week # 2.5 of 12/12 and are girls. the BD x BD was a boy.gallery_7552_3767_1027758.jpg MadSci # 2gallery_7552_3767_1757051.jpg SugarPunchgallery_7552_3767_5061355.jpg

Week 5.5 of 12/12. The anna has the most frost on it. The CGLBMsU is at week 3 of 12/12.gallery_7552_3767_9770820.jpggallery_7552_3767_6489935.jpggallery_7552_3767_7559170.jpggallery_7552_3767_5328192.jpg

Thanks Robo, I watch & learn from You.

I am at week # 7 of 12/12 on this run. The CGLBMsU is at week # 5 of 12/12.

All is well aside from the MadSci # 1 still trying to recover from being mag deficient.

They are crowding each other, only having one square foot each to live in. I removed some fan leaves from the MadSci & anna to get light onto the buds.

The MadSci # 1 and the anna are getting brown pistols but there trics are still all clear.

My jars are empty now so if a plant finishes early I will be happy.

I am curious as to how long the CGLB crosses will take to finish, it might be a while.

The photo button is not working right now. Perhaps I am just to stoned to remember how to use it.

This is week # 8 of 12/12 and week # 6 for the CGLBMsU. There are still no amber or cloudy trics on any of the buds yet. The SugarPunch had the most aroma which is sweet & fruity. The bird is getting sticky and smells of a tropical flower but has no pistels going brown yet. The anna has 90% red & brown pistils and is covered with clear frosty trics, it might be ripe next week. The MadSci has very little aroma. The MadSci that shows mag def looks bad but it is not getting any worse and it is still putting on bud weight. I gave them all blood meal tea at week # 5 and guano tea at week # 7. They are all still getting bacto, humic acid and molasses every two weeks.gallery_7552_3767_9024517.jpg I moved the anna to the front to show them. They are two plants in 15 liters.gallery_7552_3767_1750596.jpggallery_7552_3767_559532.jpggallery_7552_3767_2563677.jpggallery_7552_3767_2064427.jpggallery_7552_3767_2908716.jpg

The MadSci # 1 was ripe and was harvested at 9 weeks. It is trying to dry now. The RH is 85% here now. The other MadSci & the anna might go one more week. The Bird is at week # 10 of 12/12 and taking her time. The MsU cross is still stretching at week # 7 of 12/12. The SP is enjoying the space where MadSci # 1 was.gallery_7552_3767_997725.jpggallery_7552_3767_1740199.jpggallery_7552_3767_2214526.jpggallery_7552_3767_3291158.jpggallery_7552_3767_3320867.jpggallery_7552_3767_2313545.jpg

The MadSci # 2 and the anna were harvested at day 68. The SugarPunch was harvested at day 71. It had bud rot in her main top, I lost about half of that cola. The Bird is 2 plants in 4 gal. There are 2 phenos, The smaller plant is taking longer and has more compact buds. The bigger one has several large tops that are close to being ripe now at week # 12. The MsU cross is at week # 8 and has lots of nodes getting closer with buds. A new 4 gal. pot went in on 6-18 with 3 seedlings. There labels were lost. I think there is one Black Domina and two ColJam crosses. The MadSci # 1 dried to 35 grams, the MadSci # 2 dried to 33 grams, the anna dried to 32 grams and the SugarPunch dried to 46 grams. I had six 4 gal pots in 6 sq. ft. I am running 210 watts or 35 watts per sq. ft. I am hoping to average 35 grams per sq. ft. The MadSci does not give off much aroma but smell like dark coffee & black licorice. I thought the anna would smell like skunk but I am smelling cantaloupe, it is very nice. The SugarPunch has a strong sweet raspberry aroma. The Bird is giving off less aroma now but is like honeysuckle or jasmine.gallery_7552_3767_1069763.jpggallery_7552_3767_2612951.jpggallery_7552_3767_1670692.jpggallery_7552_3767_296780.jpggallery_7552_3767_9222320.jpggallery_7552_3767_12788044.jpggallery_7552_3767_3533008.jpggallery_7552_3767_2779644.jpggallery_7552_3767_1503259.jpggallery_7552_3767_5945472.jpggallery_7552_3767_2372339.jpggallery_7552_3767_3646607.jpg

I harvested the Bird # 1 at day # 85. It dried to 29 grams. Bird # 2 will come down tomorrow at day # 91. The CGLBMsU has a lot of leaves going yellow with brown curling tips at week # 9. I gave her a blood meal tea yesterday. I have a mite problem on these plants, my first mite encounter. A few more seedlings were added this week, 1 Extreema fem, 1 chemD-2, 2 BWOG.gallery_7552_3767_7797729.jpggallery_7552_3767_7523101.jpggallery_7552_3767_1283238.jpggallery_7552_3767_1404406.jpggallery_7552_3767_2109406.jpggallery_7552_3767_2633034.jpggallery_7552_3767_6247358.jpggallery_7552_3767_6760833.jpggallery_7552_3767_1793778.jpggallery_7552_3767_9313168.jpg

The mites took a toll on the last few plants that were in the flower room. The CJ crosses did not reach there potential. I cleaned the flower room a few times and treated the new plants with azamax and mighty wash. So far so good, no sign of mites now. I have plants flowering now ranging from 12 weeks to 6 weeks. gallery_7552_4019_3937850.jpggallery_7552_4019_5969853.jpggallery_7552_4019_1482664.jpggallery_7552_4019_2736259.jpggallery_7552_4019_639328.jpggallery_7552_4019_1030256.jpggallery_7552_4019_4569258.jpggallery_7552_4019_7146079.jpg Extrema at week 11, BWOG at week 11, Unidentified at week 6, CJ? at week 9, and two more CJ? at week 12 .

hey barney

 

1st .thx for sharing your show with us. i see the dimensions of 2 x 3 and the bar hangs at 5 feet. i'm guessing your gro chamber is 6 ft tall.

 

I'm thinking small foot print now for a super stealth grow, maybe 2 units. tallest one is 5 ft. , but frnakly i feel 4 foot turnkey is safer and easier to not pay attention too when it's got junk all around it. thx again

Looks nice. How far from the plants do you keep the LEDs? I have found that 10-24 inches is the "sweet spot" for my UFOs with 3w lamps. I usually try to keep them around 10-12 inches from the top of the plants when possible (flo).
