        My schedule is sometimes kind of funny and I end up in the garden at like 11pm. I need to take a photo from 15ft away, you can't even see that thing blended between a whole bunch of delicious plants

      Just some more photos of plants.

      First a few of my auto plants:

        Thanks for the compliments. I just like to grow things so spend alot of time with the plants. So I get lots of practice. Love growing inside, outside, and in greenhouses.

      Hard to decide which strain is doing the best at this point πŸ€”

      Unfortunately my mutant didn't really grow to be much of anything and the remaining 3 got a bit of the root rot and failed to thrive.

      Plunked some more blackberry to replace the Cream Cookiea because I am loving the colours:

        Everything is looking great. I just got my Blue Dream-amatic from fast buds. Looking forward to starting them next month.

        As far as the strain that didnt grow both me and Retodd had one strain refuse to grow. I'm not going to mention the strain as the company more than made up for it. The company that shipped had apparently miss stored the seeds. The actual breeder of the seeds fixed the issue. It wasnt fast buds though.

        I have to accept at least partial responsibility for Cream Cookies not thriving. Reservoir temps went higher than they should early on and so on.

        BlackBerry has been a real welcome addition to the garden and more in lime with my current skill level. Overall it's a really fast flowering (8 weeks), durable and beautiful plant. Haven't tried any yet but I seem to enjoy anything crossed with the OG.

      I've been batteling with low ph this whole grow for some reason. I'll have my res dialed in close to 6 and in the morning it's a 5 or lower. Every day I've been adding ph up but I can't seem to get it to stay in optimum range. The only variables that I have changed are I've gotten a larger air pump and I've changed my ph up and down brand. The reason I changed was because I was experiencing this problem with my last brand too. So I don't think it's the solution causing the issue. I gave my dwc system a good cleaning with h2o2 before starting this crop. I try to keep my res Temps as low as I can but they stay around 23 degrees. That hasn't seemed to cause issues before. Roots look good but the leaves are pretty twisty and today I've noticed some leaf mutations. Just wondering if anyone has had problems with ph like this and what the cause may be and how did you correct it. I just flipped to 12/12 last week and they already really smell. Want these girls to finish as strong as possible.

        So after running the intake line from my air pump to outside air, poof no more ph swings. It's been 3 days and it's holding steady! Plants are already starting to look better.

        Yes it was! I'm very happy to have it resolved. Thanks 9fingerleafs for pointing it out. I'm also happy to know that I have high co2 levels in my space. I always kinda suspected it but wasn't sure.

      heres a question for this years outdoor grow I used mostly 10 gallon pots with some 7 mixed in I made super soil following the GWE recipe ,while watering yesterday we noticed some yellowing leaves close to the bottom.hers my question ,does this indicate that the nutrients are getting low and I should start giving them nutes I put them in pots in the GH the beginning of April I think lol

        Hi OJ I don't have mine in GH anymore do to high temps. Mine are in soil that I've mixed and after being in there for 70+ days I start feeding N teas. I notice during the change from teen to adult stage they get hungry. Mine are avg. 5ft right now bud sites are more pronounced so i'm giving them bat/fish, kelp and molasess tea mix. I've also treated them to Epsom salt for heat stress when I plain water couple tbl spoons per gallon this will not burn plants. Mid growth on my outdoor photos I start to see yellow near bottom large fan leafs. Mine are leaving puberty

        I have not grown in pots outdoor, but we never worried about fan leaves yellowing and falling off from the bottom, we called it mulch!

        Outside the ones we have in pots we start light feedings after about 2 months. Ours are in 25 gallon pots though. Outside we either top dress after 2 months or use teas

      1500 ladybugs! Turned them loose 2 days ago, some on an infested wild grape vine, the rest in the garden. Checking on them yesterday, I find many still in my plants and on the wild grape, (I started to take a pic but did not want to offend anyone) what do I see,, stacked ladybugs! Thats why I put them there, so much to eat, they'll make babies!
      I went to several places to try to get these and some praying mantis, gave up and went to see if the grow shop has timers in (110v digital w/battery backup). I tell the gal I have been all over looking for ladybugs and praying mantis, they hardly ever have what I want (but there close), she tells me they got ladybugs in yesterday! A tad under $33 and I am out the door with 1500 live ladybugs!

      And a question, when do all y'all take your clones? The days are growing short, and I want to take some for a fall/winter indoor grow. I have a seed soaking now for one plant and I am thinking I need to get this done by the end of this month before they start to flower.

        outdoor plant will switch to bloom around the 15th of August ,so you could take them in the beginning of Aug.this might be better for a timeline Aug 1st take clones Aug 10-15 transplant clones toward the end of Aug. then in Sept you can train,flip what ever@Rwise type in Lady bugs on amazon you can get 3000 for around 20, I let 3000 go inside before it got warm enough to do it outside but when I moved everything out to the GH they went with it ,also check out Arbicoorganics.com they have everything you could ever want in pest control

        One of the girls is already showing signs, not one I am taking cuttings from.
        4 Rusty Glue (1 from each plant to make fem seed), 1 Colombian Gold, 1 or 2 Bruce Banner 3s, might have to do a cross between the RG and the BB3s for fun.
        Thats what I thought, got to get it done in the next 30 days!

        modded the coning station, put 2 bubble wall tubes in it pushed by a dual air pump. Lots of bubbles now, 7 clones started! If all make it, 1 RG will go to a friend.

      Newest CBD plants in the field. These are all AC/DC. They raised the thc max here to .9% so we were able to start some new strains. This potted plants are Franklin's

        Just living the dream 😎

      Due to weather I had to move my awesome outdoor auto inside, but not the grow room. How many days will it be fine without light? This was thursday late afternoon. How many days until I need to consider moving it into the grow room? I have to measure, but it might fit.

      I guess the thing to decide is either a 60 day old auto going 3 or 4 days in a cool dark room or move it in grow room with 3 flowering and risk possibly bringing pest in.

      I can move it outdoors for a few hours at a time if that helps, but it's cloudy out. It probably won't clear up until monday morning.

        You need to provide at least some light to the plant even if it is just a regular overhead light. With autos though without proper light it will slow its growth and have smaller yields in the end.

        But I would not risk bringing pests in with your inside plants.

        It was pretty crazy for a couple of days there with the weather, but the plant held up well. Too busy to move any lights back there, but I kept the regular ceiling light on. The smell is so good, can't wait only 2 weeks to go!

      1 Blue Dream'matic got topped today. I waited a week longer hoping she would get taller but didn't really happen. Nodes are so close I think I gave too much light early on.

        Nesting the Rapid Rooters in baskets from the start seems like a good idea. I put mine in recycled 2" plastic starter baskets last time and the plants didn't seem very happy in them...too damp and not enough air.

        I like it. I used to have rooter in a Dixie cup or even just inside the tray. But the problem there is when the root starts coming out of rooter it ends up being right against the heat pad which is under tray and/or squished against bottom of cup. This way it has a couple inches to dangle before it would hit ground and by that time I transport to final home.

      Looks good to me.
