    My perpetual grow journal

    Since I'm coming to end of my first grow. I might as well start a journal of everything I'm doing from here on out. I'm new to forums and don't use social media. So if I'm doing something wrong, please let me know. I'll do my best to change my habits.

    13.5’ x 14' grow room 6" can fan w/ipower carbon filter
    My current equipment is
    2 600 watt hps
    1 250 watt hps
    2 150 watt hps (built into one unit)
    4 2' flourescent lights for clones and seedlings
    Using 2 4'x4'x7' for flower but want to separate the room and ditch the tents
    3 air pumps w/8way splitters
    Various fans and inlines

    Growing in dwc with rockwool cubes, 5 gallon buckets for flower 3.5 for veg. I run Canna nutes, full line with boost.
    keep my veg between 5.65 - 5.8
    Week 1-6 between 5.8 - 6.0
    Week 6+ 6.0 and above

    Tent one has three plants 2 at 9 weeks and 1 at 8
    tent two has three plants at 2 weeks
    Six more ready to flower in veg area
    Eighteen clones for a SoG after they veg for a few weeks

    Forgot to take a photo of the first half but it was the three soil girls and about as much. This is the two DWC that were under the cobs. I am very impressed with how these ended up. One has the biggest buds to date for me, not real dense but a medium dense. The other is rock hard. Let's me know the density I want can be achieved with leds.

    between this, the light, and DHGC..... I've been busy at home. 2nd light is done and no harvests for at least 7 weeks. Focus on the challenge now.
    I have the six "manifolds" I need to put into flower but wasn't sure if I should move them to the new light and stick the 2 Goo and 2 I.S.S. under the cobs. Opinions anyone? Its 400 watts vs 670 watts, 4 plants vs 6 plants. 4 not trained, 6 pretty flat canopy. It's not a huge deal, I'm not losing sleep over it... just wondered what's others might do and the reasoning behind it.
    or you can tell me to go f%&k myself too, it you feel like it 😋😎

ID:	234766 second pic is the two ☝️☝️
    Chopped the 19th of July, cure started the 24th
    Star Killer 7 oz 9.3 grams minus some we smoked
    Pretty amazing for a bag seed, smells great right now and burns nicely. Gets you pretty rocked, which is nice because that's hard to come by for me. Of course, the previous batch it came from did the trick too.

    Pineapple Express x White Widow
    7 oz 1.6 grams again, minus some we smoked
    this could use a little longer but smells better than anything previous. Also smokes well

    So....to start, Seattle was sweet. Makes me wonder why I live where I do. Except the traffic much worse there. The dispensary world is nice...some of that product can really make one feel inadequate 😂 but really orange cookie, geez...freakin delicious among the others. The pre rolleds are convenient as hell too.
    back to work as soon as I get back

    11 MC-clones (pineapple express) in back 1 seed (pineapple express x white widow) up front. Pretty sure I popped the bean after the clones rooted. Topped it at the 6th node, I think.

    My 6 manifolds 5 Star Killer and 1 BC Pinewarp x Bubblegummer This is the prettiest one of the six although a touch uneven still. All in three gallons fabrics of my soil mix. Will flower in three weeks most likely. They each get 32-48 oz. of water twice a week and adding molasses now, thanks D.A.A.S.69, about twice a month.

    a lot more yellowing when I got back but looking close. Flushing the DWC soon.
    (above) 2 GOO clones and 2 Island Sweet Skunk clones under two remodeled cheap China led lights. Around 395 watts from cobs and monos, mix of 3500k and 5000k. 5 gallon fabrics, my soil mix with molasses waterings and roots organic HPK. 48-64 oz every 2-3 days. No training other pulling the side branches down. I haven't let a plant grow naturally yet, gotta see.

    RosettaStoned , I do 4 full weeks of curing for the best results. Burp the jars every day for the first week, and every two days for the rest of the time.
    After about 2 weeks, the moisture is stabilized, and you can weigh it fairly accurately. You start getting the proper smell after week 3.
    If you want something super smelling - cure for 6+ weeks. I heard that's for the pros, if you're trying to win the Cannabis Cup, LOL.
    ( I can't ever make it that far without trying it)

    Week 8 to the day
    same thing is happening as last grow, but in the soil containers this time. Same strain, same light. So maybe the light has more to do with it than the high ec last time? Its mostly the 7 gallon soil plant, which you can see to the left.
    the dreaded word, vacation, is coming this week. My buddy that I grow for is going to take care of it with specific instructions that I write down in steps. Luckily only two plants to check EC and pH on. The rest are flushing or soil. If I water before I go the flower room will be fine. He knows how to check ec/ph and write it down on the board. Also adjust the solution if needed, at this point I use mostly water. The veg room on the other hand, has 6 manifolded plants (1 gallon fabrics, 5 star killer 1 bc pinewarp x bubblegummer like the tall one up 'er ☝️☝️) starting and four ready to move to flower. Plus my bonsai mother practice girls. A little more precise watering needed in here 😬 also just cut and currently drying a harvest, ahhh! I should have waited and took my chances on the trichs.
    anyway I'll try and enjoy my trip to Seattle, I'll just get f@#$ing ripped and forget someone is fondling my girls while I'm away.

    Week 11 and 2 days, finishing under the vipar and Mars remodels
    flushing and has to wait until I get back. Maybe some sleepy weed in my future. I'm amazed at the density of these gals (11 pineapple express clones) considering they were under 175 watts until recently. The PExWW cross is a herm, nicest looking bud out of the three seeds I popped, but has visible seeds growing in it.

    Thanks friend,
    Same here in the mid west. The only time I have real low humidity is winter. My basement is a constant 50-60% humidity with a DH running. Without, it's awful

    How long would you say it takes before you get the bud smell back. I have no problem waiting any amount of time if means it comes out good. I have jars that have been at 62% for about a month now and still smells like tea/hay/generic sweet green smell. I burp them two, three times a week at this point.
