    6:30 Buds: The Perpetual Grow

    Hello all,
    Welcome to a great season for growing! Finding time to journal has been difficult with the constant growth of the beautiful lives I am surround by, so my thoughts and pictures needed a place to call Home.
    Still working on this journaling skill; it feels good to keep track with a photo timeline, but those fat, sticky nugs end up motivating me to spend time elsewhere. Just trying to keep a place open to share with you.
    Hope you find it fun to watch and thanks for stopping by.
    #GrowersLove


    Working on a 6:30 schedule, 6 plants every 30 days with 3 lights. That's the goal at least! Obviously there will be some variance due to strain, vegging, and life, but it has been working out for me lately so we will give it a try.

    Put these girls in the Bloom Room 4/20
    Looking NICE

      Blasted some Hash Oil
      Used Puretane this time -99.99% n-butane instead of isobutane.

      Much smoother on the lungs

        Here's the product I used this time. Had decent luck with other regular butane in the past but wanted to try something different. It's like $70/case (12cans) for regular butane and this stuff off Fleabay was just as cheap $55/case for Puretane

        Click image for larger versionName:	IMG_2768.JPGViews:	1Size:	19.5 KBID:	206866

        Traditionally, smoking anything with Butane Hash Oil would make my lungs tickle for 30minutes or longer. Couldn't do 'dabs' because I would just cough and cough, and cough, and cough.... ugh it was endless tickle in the lungs. I like to just put a drop ontop of some nug in a bowl or bong hit and toke it regular. But even this method would result in 10-15 minutes of coughing. Needless to say I am sensitive to BHO but after blasting a couple batches with this new Puretane, my lungs are happy. No more tickle, no more hacking. It is smooth like regular nugget or even better. It's more like smoking kief now.
        If someone is thinking about blasting some BHO, look into a product with n-butane (or get it bulk) instead of isobutane.

            NO!
            WOW
            Is she really 2.5 months old?
            Where has she been hiding? A dark corner of your basement? Looks like she was in pretty rough shape when you found her.
            Looking better now that she has been taken in from the wild

            The germination attempt is 2.5 months old
            (I put the seed in water 3 days before trying)

            But the actual plant is a little less, but only by a few weeks. My sh!t is whack sometimes 🤕

            Yeah, I was thinking about this plant in regards to our transplant sequence discussion... First step in sequence should be much shorter

            The strain that makes you say "Choo Choooo!!" like a blasting train horn.
            -Super Silver Haze perhaps?

            Not really a big deal with this strain, grown it out plenty of times now.

              It's the ballsacks that kill me: the pollen is so much more obnoxious.
              This strain is fine, she doesn't make ballsacks and the Nanners are just visual,

                Nice looking plants. Beautifully trichomed. Do you just do a sea of green?

                  Hey, the short answer is yes, but I do half (one bulb's worth) my Bloom room a month behind, it's too much to veg all that at once currently.
                  The complicated answer is that I am falling into a routine that works for me, but also for the growing efficiencies. I try some plant training in there too, a couple manifold trials here and there. Got some seedlings and also clones side by side. Some plants are twice as old as others, but behind in stages. It's just a hobby that I try to keep simple but it ends up crazy. Too expensive to have all 3 lights on without something to show for it, so I'm trying this routine (with a splash of self discipline) in order to churn out nuggets more regularly.

                  The goal is 5'x5' per bulb and 5'x10' for the room. I am using 6 plants under each 1000w hps bulb right now.

                The new Hortilux bulbs are showing improved results. Could be from being new, could be from being Hortilux... I DO like that Hortilux bulbs are MADE IN USA, so that is a selling point for me. I love America.

                This particular plant is sorta ugly. Tried to FIM instead of top as an experiment- this strain prefers a true topping.

                My favorite strain, but not good to accomplish the To-Do list. Great for couch surfing and sleeping in.
                Melts the body away....

                  I like the hortilux as well. Brand new bulbs are great too. 😉. I like to buy American made myself.

                Supercropping is a weird term for pinching the stems and bending colas sideways, but this is a great example. Those sideways Nugs never stopped swelling!
                It gives the lower ones a 'boost' also (apical dominance hormones get distributed?)
