Hey warrior This is in a bedroom closet so it is 8' high. The extra room at the top helps to give heat a place to rise into. I have a 24" carbon filter up there with a 240 cfm 6" inline duct fan pushing into the attic. Hey Nils. With these two lights the coverage is most even at 18". At first I thought 10" was too close because I had one plant with problems. Now I have had colas get as close as 8" with no harm. I have a infrared thermometer and found leaf surfaces only a few degrees warmer F* up there.

I got a little bud rot in the main top of the Extrema. I removed the main top at day 78 and removed the rotten part. The good part dried to 3 grams in 3 days. With no cure at all it still tasted great. The aroma is a mild spicy smell. The high is great. More high in the head than mad sci and still is very good for pain. The smoke tastes sweet and has good expansion. By the time you exhale the first hit you can tell that it is good, strong weed. The Extrema and one of the BWOG girls are just starting to show some amber trics.gallery_7552_4019_9212370.jpggallery_7552_4019_1348215.jpggallery_7552_4019_2218694.jpggallery_7552_4019_681497.jpggallery_7552_4019_311433.jpggallery_7552_4019_7217550.jpggallery_7552_4019_4439213.jpggallery_7552_4019_1383081.jpggallery_7552_4019_5046045.jpggallery_7552_4019_331849.jpggallery_7552_4019_1524090.jpggallery_7552_4019_2917441.jpggallery_7552_4019_3165336.jpg

gallery_7552_4019_8762664.jpgThe pot with the BWOG had 3 plants in it, 2 BWOG & 1 chemD2. One BWOG got big but not tall. The other two grew taller but skinny and they were harvested this week. The chemD2 gave 5 grams and the BWOG gave 10 grams. The Extrema is still not quite ripe, any day now.gallery_7552_4019_2055787.jpggallery_7552_4019_2594591.jpggallery_7552_4019_9997677.jpggallery_7552_4019_1936761.jpggallery_7552_4019_8903567.jpg

Hey Vet. Thanks for the props. I am getting a handle on soil nute levels and watering regimes. The seeds do most of the work if you let them, thanks to the breeders. Thanks for looking surfer. The Extrema went 93 days and gave 21 grams. She only had 10 days veg so she could have weighed much more. Her buds are good looking and they taste great. They have more head high than MadSci with less couch lock. I have already popped 2 more for the next round which will get 4 or 5 weeks of veg. CJ?1 and CJ?2 went 107 and 112 days respectively. They have yet to be weighed or sampled. They look like they will give about 40 grams each. The BWOG went 101 days after 10 days of veg. She gave 40 grams. She is a different pheno than the first time I grew one, Her buds are more sativa like and taste more sweet and less dark, good expansion, nice clean high. The black Domina is still going at 10 weeks with about a week or less to go. I started one Anna and one KO kush two months ago. The Anna went male and the KOK was stunted real bad so I just let them bunk up and fuck for a month in the veg cabinet. I cut the Anna 3 weeks ago after gathering pollen for the freezer. Ten feet away the girls in the flower closet did encounter some of Mr. Anna's pollen. I had dusted the bottom branches of the Black Domina because She is Indica and a good match for Anna. She was also 6 weeks old at the time and most likely to produce viable seeds. The 12" tall KOK will only have a few buds but will be loaded with seeds. Her little buds are frosty as hell even while she is totally gone to seed. I gathered a few dozen seeds from the BWOG but they may not have been on the vine long enough. The CJ plants will give seeds that had a little longer ripen. It is cool to see how Mr. Anna spread his pollen. Now I need to clean everything so I do not get accidental seeding in my next round which is just starting. I have popped 2 SugarPunch fem seeds, 2 Extrema fem seeds and 2 KillingFields fem seeds, no boys invited thank you.

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

Here are the totals for that run. Extrema=21 grams, BWOG(2 plants)=50 grams, CJ1= 35 grams, CJ2=38 grams, Black Domina-31 grams, and CJ3(2 plants)-34 grams. That adds up to 209 grams from 210 watts of LED. The CJ plants took 15 weeks and a few days. The Black Domina only took 71 days which is fast for in my flower room. All the CJ plants and the Black Domina had quite a few seeds from the Anna male and these weights are after all of the seeds have been removed. The CJ crosses lost there labels but I think they were crossed with Big Buda Cheese. The are much better quality than my last effort to grow them. There smoke is sweet and smooth with honeysuckle feel to it. The high a clear up in the head buzz with no couch lock, great for 6:00 am. After picking the buds apart to remove seeds there are no nice looking buds left to take photos of. The BD and the BWOG also came to be good smoke also. The BD being the best body stone/pain reliever in the batch. Having some seeds set did not seem to hurt the quality of the smoke very much. I have 2 SugarPunch fems starting there third week in 12/12. I took two branches from the bigger one today to try my first cloning effort. I have 2 Extrema fems in there third week of veg. The killing fields did not make it. :thumbsdown: I have one MadSci fem that popped 5 days ago. I have two Jackberry regs that just popped today. It will be a month before they all make there way to the flower room.gallery_7552_4019_2190673.jpggallery_7552_4019_840794.jpggallery_7552_4019_1411083.jpggallery_7552_4019_1967024.jpggallery_7552_4019_754487.jpg

gallery_7552_4019_521332.jpggallery_7552_4019_371.jpgMy SP girls showed some leaf curling. The OG growers helped me see early lockup. I flushed until each pot ran off 1 or 2 liters three times over six days. Two Extrema fems went into the flower room a few days ago. It looks like different phenos going for both the SP & the Ext. The fast SP is also fast at getting her flowers going. I like the look of the shorter Extrema. Her fans are impressive. I will try to get a clone from her.gallery_7552_4019_1095125.jpggallery_7552_4019_1269141.jpggallery_7552_4019_1718500.jpg

Quitting growing is most definitely more difficult than quitting smoking, so here we go again. I cracked 5 sugarpunch beans and 4 of them popped up. They had one week of 24/0, one week of 16/8 and now one week of 12/12. I also popped 2 Extrema beans that have been on 16/8 for two weeks now and will stay there for two more weeks.gallery_7552_4147_2210722.jpg

so i just looked up the new chrome lights. coverage area is supposed to be 2 x 2 ft. and with better light penetration.

do you agree with that since you have run them now. how much penetration would you say they actually get. i have ideas that could include a stealth build around one of those lights cause foot print would be 2 x 2 ft.

 

looking for alternative to turnkey if i can figure out an easy way for the build and all. should be cheaper . 5ft. is the height of the turn key unit i was leaning heavily toward.

 

man once u find out what really fills up that room u will smile more and more. congrats. some nice porn too. got a tiny bud of pre 98 BK that looked awfully like that sugar punch. saving the little lady for new years just in case something does not show up as contracted already.

 

have a great new year dude. grow on, grow strong, grow hungry and grow some more. :wave:

Hey Warrior, thanks for looking. I am happy with my chrome LED's. I was collecting bits & pieces of equipment for about a year before I got one. Mine are the 180 but are really only driven at 105 watts true pull. They will put 25 watts per foot on a 2' x 2' space. When I get a full canopy in my 2' x3' and run two of them, they are putting 35 watts per foot down. I am happy when very little of the light is reaching the soil so that it is not being wasted. Even when the lower buds are fluffy and the lower leaves are pale I don't have the heart to remove them. Some times I remove a few big fan leaves near the top if there are buds and fans below that are starved for light. Peace Warrior.

Week # 2 for the SugarPunch. They are all looking good. The one in the right rear was the slowest but it is not going to be a total runt. The one in the right front has the broadest leaflets. Could that indicate pheno ? There is no indication of flowers yet but they are fems so the odds that they are girls is very good. :innocent: gallery_7552_4147_1215685.jpg gallery_7552_4147_703135.jpg

In the center are two Extrema fems that just went into the flower room after 4 weeks of veg.

The Sugarpunch are at week # 4 of 12/12. The Extrema is at week # 1 of 12/12. SP # 1 was 26" tall so I supercroped it. I also pulled it's branches in with wires. SP # 2 is 20" tall and it's branches are shorter and are growing straight up. It's flowering the fastest of the lot. SP# 3 & # 4 are only 13" tall and look Indican. The Extrema have not shown flowers yet. I put them up on booster seats.gallery_7552_4147_7568067.jpggallery_7552_4147_5878725.jpggallery_7552_4147_5874329.jpggallery_7552_4147_756689.jpg
