    Well this is what I mean by overnight growth or just hours from last post. They're not in their forever homes yet but just wanted to show how 13 hours after watering and foliar are doing. Significant increase in leaf mass to utilize light, extended growth tips vs elongation, and visable overall mass. I lowered the mh about 13 inches before I left for work came back to do the foliar feed and take pics.

    Humidity has been playing a role in my soil drying, low of 36% in the tent...the mh will suck the moisture off a frogs ass lmao. That's just my experience...even with flourishing plants. Every time I fire up the mh I can feel the air drying up when I open the tent. Kicked another fan on in above of the active intake hole to get a little more pressure in the tent but going to have to pick up a couple more clip fans. Ill have pics of the whole tent when they get repotted.

    Just another reason I want to share the little buggers adventure. I'm sure Campesino has got something special he's working on to share with us all. He's been so quiet since we started, I'm not sure if his thread even exists πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜† πŸ˜€.

      Very pretty. I'm hoping my little autos will catch back up and explode. They arent as pretty as those. But cant always find good babysitters. They are close to that size now but were dropped the 7th and still have some ugly lower leaves. Hoping 24 hours will fix them up. But great job.

    Got some yellowing on the leaves... maybe light bleaching from hitting with LED too soon? Roots have hit water except for the janky DGTH that sprouted 1st. The Dgth on day 11 seems to have the longest roots??

      Ph was above 7! So much for testing strips... tucked away in their new temp home with cmh. Res change tonight then choosing 2 for the scrog tent! Ph adjustedto 6.3...

    3 hours after transplant. Waiting a few days then topping the rest. Mycorrhizae added to transplant holes and dusted the roots as well. Will be getting a foliar feeding of liquid bone meal solution. Grabbing the rest of my parts for a compost brewer so there will be some teas to come. ✌ Click image for larger version

      Tika we'll be doing weekly updates in this thread. But we each have our own threads that we can ramble in πŸ˜‰.

    I am in final containers. Transplanted the "OH" today, 5 gallon fabric pots. The DGTH did not hold together as well as the GC. Both look good and getting faster. All of them got topped to the fourth node. All receiving their foliar feed.

      I suspect the frozen bottles either hitting the roots or freezing them a touch to shock them. The fan is on the other side of the room, about 8 ft away. I'll keep an eye on the newer leaves as it has not showed up there yet.

      The first thing that came to my mind with that leaf problem, is some type of a fungal infection. Or like you say, some type of physical damage, or maybe a little to much breeze. Not sure though, would be tempted to clip at least the finger off that leaf.
      Plants are lookin great though!

    Sup seedsmans finally e mailed me.. i called there customer service like three weeks ago maybe about my dgth seeds and never heard back, so i finally figured out how to e mail them with what was going on.. they have me the same three options as i seen already posted here.. so i went ahead an I'm going to re pay shipping and get a free pack of there best feminized sellers.. it will be 3 white widow, 3 jock horror, and 3 blueberry.. i went with this so i could get a variety.. i haven't grown a ww yet an only hear the best.. an my wife has been bugging me to grow her a blueberry plant since i started growing.. lol so it's a win win.. hopefully eveeything goes smoothly.. Peace out for nowβœŒπŸ€—

      Seedsman's Blueberry is a winner. Their White Widow however I found a little iffy. Jock Horror is a Nirvana strain, and I don't believe they would be giving that away. Probably their Jack Herer. Their Jack Herer is a good one too.

I was cecking on what you said an it's out of stock..

    RosettaStoned Californiakid have you guess noticed pistils on the gc yet? I was cloning the top and noticed them. I guess it's time to show sex but I immediately thought autoflowers lmao. Didnt notice on the dgth I'll go back in the tent and scope them out but hopefully it's just a good sign of sex. Click image for larger version

Bought two 1 gallon jugs to freeze for the res. 300 gph pump, 100 ft of 1/2 ID vinyl hose, thermal insulation, hose clamps, hose splice connector, tape, foam pipe insulation. Made from things laying around the house, minus the pump. The 75gph pump wasn't cutting it

        Houston we have a problem. So far out of the 3 gc the top I presented above and this one are showing pistils. However this is the only one covered in pistils. I think she's an auto guys. They were in the same package so maybe all of them are??? I don't know what to say other then they'll probably be stunted autos since I've been treating them like photos, this one in particular with no training done whatsoever. I'm at a loss guys and my gc entries for the challenge are compromised. I may have to withdraw myself from the challenge πŸ˜₯. Click image for larger version

          Rofl I was just about to ask your input about it being an auto. I agree it makes it more of a challenge but that sucks. I would normally run autos on 20/4 but these girls have been on 18/6 for over 2 weeks now πŸ˜₯. And I probably wouldn't have put them in such a rich soil mix. Unlike my shop grow this effects me negatively 😒.

          I have grown autos on a photo schedule, and seemed to work out well enough. But there are multiple factors that are unique to each of us, that we must evaluate as individual growers.

          Do I hope to see these all the way through? Yes.
          Would I understand if you cull them? Yep.

          Clear as mud? πŸ˜‰

          I don't want to cull them, but man I'm really torn about it. I could have been growing these gc seeds with my shop grow and I would have been happier with the situation πŸ˜†

        Is it not normL for fems and regulars to start showing pistils (or sex) starting around 4-5 weeks and I hear as well that topping speeds the process of showing sex.....esp I’m males.

          Photos do show sex at 3 to 6 weeks. However lots of pistils isnt until the light change. @Chefbj you have grown both so you know that another week should tell you if they are autos. Also since the light change is gonna be soon I think the timing on finish will still be fairly close. You should definitely stay in the comparison. Just change the name from challenge to comparison and it's all good. (You have more exp inside than me so you already know all this. But interesting that people are ordering photos and getting autos, yet people ordering autos are getting photos.)

          As far as soil I usually use ffof and the same nutrients on autos as I do photos. I've never noticed them wanting less nutrients than photos but I'm no expert. I'm only on my 4th grow of autos so cant really say. I've only been growing inside for a few years now so no expert on inside either.

          I'm definitely going to have to figure something out before flip day. I don't want to finish autos on 12/12. Yes I've grown both Redwasp but only once with autos. However I've been growing lots of photos and have never seen pistils this prominent at around 4 weeks old. This has made an intresting turn to thread and it's going to be a helluva "challenge" for sure.

          Campesino stunned is what I was when I started checking them out this morning to do a foliar. Seems I have a bit of yellowing on those leaves too.

        Californiakid and RosettaStoned so far are the only ones I've seen that didn't fall behind and may be exceeding my phase of growth. So if I have pistils shouldn't they see what I'm seeing?? I don't want to have to move them in and out of the tent. So I'd like a little more confirmation that these gc are not autos. Maybe I can ask a couple actively auto growers with some name tagging. NebulaHaze D.A.A.S.69 this is normal for autos but have you ever seen pistils like the ones I posted above in photoperiod plants? Weed Pharma Obi-Wan @ anybody lol.

          @Chefbj now that I think about it my ak47 that was supposed to be an auto but ended up a photo did get pistils like that but it was at 9 weeks. None of my other photos ever have. D.A.A.S.69 is who I have gotten all my info about autos from. There was one other person here that grows alot of autos but cant remember there name. NebulaHaze can tell you who it is. Probably have to PM them directly as they do not read the board much anymore.

          I sure hope so OJH. Did you see the pic in my journal? Looks like flower on the top. Guess we'll find out soon enough πŸ˜†.

        So I never removed seeds from packaging, they were put away. I never put my gg#4 seeds away, they hit jiffy pellets as soon as I got them in the mail. The gc and dgth are the first seeds I ever purchased and never had anything in my cart or wish list before ordering them. So I'm confused as to how this happened, here are the packages. As you can see from previously posted they are indeed the same packages. I know for a fact that this was another error on Seedsmans' part. Second mix up second order, haven't heard back about my first replacement order and I will definitely have to tell them about this now. I hope they can compinsate me for how much trouble they've put me through. 😒 Click image for larger version

          Do any of the people in the challenge live close enough to each other to meet up? Was just curious to see if the buds end up smelling, tasting, and "feeling" the same. I've always wondered if the genetics I get are the same as everyone else. Also if the different grow methods change the taste and smell significantly. I think the taste and smell are probably more important to me than being super strong. I love the flavor and smell of certain strains and was just curious.
