Hi Everyone,

I haven't grown in the last few years, and due to my current situation it is better for me to go hydro than soil. I apologize for the lacking quality of the pictures, however my outdated phone is all I have at the moment. I will see later if I can get better ones with the flash when the lights are off. I am using 2 of Amare Technologies SE450UVB Led Lights, 5 Gallon DWC, GH nutes along with a couple other additives such as bennies, Silica, etc.. The space is roughly 6 ft. x 4 ft., carbon filter / extraction fan, and will be adding a scrog net in the next few days.

I cracked three beans of the Kolossus Fem, and they are currently at day 20 from sprout.

Thank You,
The bulb in the center is the UVB , it was recommended by the manufacturer not to use it until first sign of pistils and then on a separate timer for 10 hours.

Ok, this looks like a great setup for growing monsters.
I'll also grow kolossus quite soon but in soil, smaller space and diy lights. Will be checking your thread for kind of reference on what to expect from this variety.
I believe your grow will be stellar, all the ingredients are right.
When do you plan to witch on 12/12?

Cheers

Attempting to get better pictures, this is with the lights off and flash only. From left to right, I will call the plants number 1,2, or 3 from here on out.

Kolossus 1,
She is a bit more stretchy than the other two

Kolossus 2,
The most compact and shortest of the three

Kolossus 3,
Structure is in between the other two,

Hi all,

a little update.. had to work a lot these last two weeks, temps here went up to the low 100 F. range. The temps in the room soared as well, this affected the girls, nute lockout too. Did a little HVAC work to fix the problem, and they are recovering well. Put up a screen, trimmed a little underbrush and some of the leaves suffering from the heat/lockout. Other than that, nothing else much to report right now.

I notice you have no mini shade on the heat probe , I am the same but some others make a mini shade for theirs
My reasoning says the plants are not in the shade so the probe shouldn't ........... But I think the instuctions for the probe say put out of direct light .......... Confusing lol idk

Your plants and set up are awesome ......... I can't wait til you flip the uvb s on : )

The Thermostat checks both indoor and outdoor temps, I check both and there is never more than 1 degree difference. I don't see the need for a shade as this is an insignificant difference in my opinion. I may take some clones within the next week, if and when I do, I will give them a couple of days and flip. From the few journals about Kolossus, people say she doesn't stretch much at all. So I am going to let them grow above the net a little first. Thank You for the compliments!!

Kolossus:
Veg Day 58
Flipped today:

The Kolossus on the ends are really beginning to crowd the one in the center. The center plant has grown slower, and been much shorter and compact than the others. So I decided to go ahead and flip before they overtake her altogether.
I put the lenses on the Amare Se450UVB and turned on the UVB lamps. For those who have grown Kolossus, I have a question. How much do they stretch? Maybe you had the shorter compact one, or the fast not so compact pheno.
I would like to hear your input. I have searched and the only answer I basically see is "veg her all you can, she doesn't stretch much" I am hoping for a answer a little more specific. Like "my compact one only stretched 2 inches." or "the less compact one stretched around 1 foot." What ever you can tell me that will give me a better idea will be greatly appreciated.

A couple of last Light & Veg pics:

Thanks, you reminded me to note for others who may be looking for info on Kolossus, that this room is 76 inches X 46 Inches. Currently the three plants are taking up about 74 inches X 27 inches, and were topped about the time they reached the screen. Also I did take some clones of the one on the left and the one in the middle, if I like them, I may run them again with more plants in the same area.

Also, they are currently between 3 to 6 inches above the net.
