My jars of ganja are close to being empty, so I had to get going again.

The setup has remained unchanged. For the people that are not familiar with it: two cabinets, per cabinet two 600 Watt lamps and a soil container filled with organically fertilized soil and a lot of animals.

The soil containers have been supplemented with some extra soil on top of the old soil. The containers now hold about 650 litres per container.
I am still terrible at making high quality pictures and I still use a crappy camera.

This the cabinet on the right. In the back there are four Amnesia Hazes, after that you see three Kolossus. The five plants to the right are JackBerries and the other nine plants are MadBerries.

This is the cabinet on the left. You are mainly looking at Gorilla Glue #4 plants, but there were a lot of really bad clones in this batch. In the back of the cabinet a lot of them died. I replaced two spots with 24K Gold plants.

The yellowness that you see is from the lamp that I use when I make photographs.

Looking good! If i understand correct, you are using 2 x 650 liters of soil for 2400 watts. Isn't that a little overkill?

Hamme Hydro: Overkill? No man. One can never have too much soil in one's soil container haha! On a serious note: yeah it probably won't be colonized by roots as a whole, but well.. I don't care!

Hey Saxo: great to have you here again! Hoping for a great run as well.

I agree, never too much soil. It may be difficult to keep it within the parameters the plants like, but as long as the soil is good the plants should thrive. The roots can grow freely without barriers, one of the benefits of running hydro, a lot of root mass is a small area/pot.

Understand the nitrogen cycle.

There is a thing of having too much soil. Soils just not sitting there ready to be used it is an active environment full of life. You should not look at it as a bunch of reserve. When you water you begin the process if starting that life and the nitrogen cycle.

A handful of worm castings a bit of guano and some compost on top should keep you healthy.

Everything is about balance.

Thanks hidronesia

I agree with you that everything is about balance. I think I have added a nice balance of nutrients to the soil. I am not very familiar with the practical implications of the nitrogen cycle. I understand the concept though. One question remains in my head though, I hope you can answer it Hempyfan:

Does the mineralization of nitrogen by bacteria in the soil not happen to all kinds of nutrients that are in there?

On the left it looks like this:

The plants have grown about 10 centimeters too tall, so I have snapped all the buds. I will do the same to the tall buds in the right side of the room.

I have nothing to complain about. The temperature in the day is 26 degrees Celsius, at night it is around 21 degrees Celsius. The relative humidity is 55%. I haven't spotted any bad critters.

I'm off to look for a piece of wood to knock on. See you!

Haha, you're right about that hidronesia and I'm no different to be honest!

I have removed some green on the bottom, but a very modest amount. Although I have never been a fan over defoliating, I am willing to try it out. So, what would you guys recommend? Remove the big fan leaves so that the light can shine on lower buds? Or would you rather cut the lower buds away? Or both?

I never trim up the bottom branches...u dont want a flat canopy!!! it is simple geometry.. bigger the surface bigger the yield..
------------- it is the flat surface
/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ and it is the surface what most plants make in nature to get as much light as possible.

okey if we gave "too much" veg time...a plant try to kill the others by shading them..

Because all strain and cut behave different...tyou have to see the reactions...
I would suggest just to cut only a few big fan leaves from the top and from the middle
if u take out some leaves day by day... thats not a problem I think... but I dont know ur strains..:)
my 24K and GG4 makes very few leaves.. but I just give 3-5 day veg from clone max.

Hi Thompson

Great looking plants bro

Just an observation from my last few grows

Watching 2 identical c99 but they are 2 and 1/2 weeks apart in veg but both went into flower at the same time

The young of the 2 is obviously a good week behind tnt other in development

Also these two plants where at least 3 weeks or maybe 4 weeks behind the the rest
And I can see major differences
It seems that the longer they veg they seem to jump in to flowering and cut there flowering time slightly and the mass of the bud is obvious

Just my opinion

Peace

I don't think I ever had one start flowering before the flip...

is that the c-99 f-6's I sent u ?
very interesting indeed.keep us informed if u will.
has to have some auto flowering gene in there somewhere..this line should be IBL I think..

great time to outcross though :whistle:

Don't have much time, I'm sorry about that.

From the bottom it looks like this

On the left side it is getting really hard to make proper pictures. The plants are growing too fast I'm afraid, but I will manage.
