    It sure is a pain in the ass having photos in flower with two autos in a small tent.

    I decided to take one of my entries and put it in a 1g smart pot and have some fun with it. Since this is my second grow I wanted to see how much LST I can do and hopefully make a cool looking Bonsai tree. My main entry is in its first week of flower, and looking real happy (fingers crossed it’s a she). I’ll probably get more bud out of it than I did in my first grow with 3g pots. 😂

      The two mini girls are flowering nicely with some frost and buds fattening up. Walter White is now 14 inches tall and if I can provide the right amount of nutes etc. should be well worth the grow.
      Current grow:

      Creme de la Chem, Double Grape autos from Mephisto Genetics

      (in a solo cup) Walter White auto from Mephisto Genetics

        Thanks Homegrown, I am getting excited to try those 2. smaller plants. shouldn't be long until they are ready to harvest.

      She's out of her cage for a good water..Looking a little light on nitrogen but i dont think im gonna change nutes now. Her sister, planted the same day, in a 5 gal fabpot is impressive! both GG#4 autos.

        She is a real beauty! Very nice.

      Here she is. I had some germination issues *cough* (read that as I cooked my sprouts under the 600W MH like a dope) so am a few weeks behind the pack. But she is loving the home made drip feeder and is really into her stretch. We have ratched up the feeding schedule and volume and still almost no runoff - and what little there is evaporates quickly. Maybe can up the volume even more. I am daily at 400 ml. She disappears into the clone canopy but I do have her on a short riser.

      Loving the solo cup grow as a way to add a nice dimension the growing experience. If the yields are interesting then this could be a really nice way to grow for places where plant count is not limited like it is here (6 per adult 12 for any household/postal address).

      Big defoliation coming tomorrow.

        Looks like intensive care is the ticket to good health.

        I am very pleased with how the "intensive care method" lets me deliver nutes on a specific feeding schedule which is very measured. And I only used a tiny bit of solil and a few handfuls of perlite.

        In the soil grows I am feeding 1200 ML a day and in the solo cup 400 ML or less. A 70% reduction in water and food is nothing to sneeze at. Also I am only 6 weeks in and I am in flower. Pretty cool experiment.

      My solo cup drop out. Was going to manifold, but after topping just didn't have the heart to continue the amputations. "How does it feel to kill? Like dying lonesome and unloved yourself. Like cutting LIVING grass. Or losing all your marbles in a match that wasn't right." Oh jeez I'm getting the weepies.

      And here's her back up that finally made it out of her latent infancy. She's the one who had the impossibly reluctant helmet head. Getting ready to replace the venerable T5s with the CMH lurking in the corner.

      And here's the rest of the brood. Got some veggies in there too. I am reluctant to transplant into grow bags as I may well run out of room before I can transfer to the grow tent in the barn. I have 5, 10, and 15 gallon bags with the two latter being out of the question.

        That's quite the fracture you have there in your foundation. Never like to see horizontal cracking, more vertical is quite common (this one looks like it's beginning to spider). Is that a form tie where the chunk is missing? Almost looks like it got whacked with an excavator bucket when it was being backfilled or it was still a bit green at the time. Doesn't look like it leaks much

        GreenState My ten year old home was built on the foundation of a hundred year old farm house that burned down. It's a two room basement with a ceiling roughly 6 feet in height so I cant' utilize my 80" grow tent down there. As my house is quite large i have 4 crawl spaces surrounding the basement rooms. For the basement's age I do not expect too much. In Colorado most homes do not even have a basement. Since this temp grow area is in the boiler room the heat is free. I try to avoid heating the barn, or other out buildings.

        Sounds like a Vermont basement . Maybe the heat from the fire cracked it. 100 years old, I wouldn't worry about it either.
        In my nutty youth I did form work on foundations there in CO, we use to take the "short" tour at coors for lunch, 3 beers and back to work (lol)

          Ends 4/10/2020 but a new thread starts 4/1/2020 for the final pics and stuff.

        Today is day 62 for the Gorilla Glue. She is starting to stack on some nice nugs. I'm guessing I'll be getting around a 1/4 oz off this bad girl lol.

          Day 10 of flower. My Suver Haze bag seed finally showed signs of being a girl. Thank God! I’m shocked how well this one is chuggin along. Growing about a 1/2” every day since the flip 10 days ago. Total height of 13”. Check out that internodal spacing. I love it.

          What week of flower do most of you defol?

          Please excuse our cat, Khaleesi. Anytime the plants come out she gets excited.

            "Khaleesi," huh? Do her baby dragons help keep the grow room warm? I love it!

          Day 58 for the G14 and she’s flowering. I’m not sure she’ll be ready to chop by April 10th but she’ll be far enough along for a photo shoot.

            the only draw back was they never turned purple lol

          Wow! I'm saying it out loud.

          Y'all have done a fantastic job with creativity and thinking outside the CUP. With the setups. Great looking plants and good company of stellar growers you are.

          17 days from the flip and I'm showing some budlets.

          the two mini's are nearing harvest as they are starting to show some amber here and there.
          The big girl was given an overdue trimming and is doing alright. Had too many tops for such a small plant and had to tie them all up. She has a long way to go before harvest so I hope she can generate enough energy to fatten up all those tops.
