      This is the ultimate answer to when LST'ing can start happening. When the shell cracks!
      Gimme another of life's eternal questions. If 42 isn't your answer, I've got it or know where to manufacture it.

      2 weeks in and looking decent. Have them a 1/8 dose of FF big bloom. Wish I had a better light , going to need a long term game plan the good lights are flowing a very full tent. I don't want to abandon my cups but the light I have right now will only suffice for the immediate future. Regardless in it to win it and they are coming along nice at the moment

        Do you have a lot of grow time with the 450 and 1000? What are your yields usually like in your 4x2?

        First round with the 1000, got half gram/watts with just the 450 and one plant in my 4x2 last time

      We have a contender!

        billyboy What are you lighting with? If you light with a CMH 315 you'll get light and heat for one price You'd have to change your lighting schedule over to nights, but you would be able to turn off that gawd awful 1500 watt juice sucker. It of course depends on how much heat you need.

        Ambient air is 58-63F. I use a 600w/MH in veg and 600w/HPS in flower. I keep the tent at ~83F during day and ~73 at night.

        Add more HPS? If you're going to have to pay for heat you might as well get light with it. I run a 600 in the photo tent and two 400s in the open room on autos all on timers figured so that I'm almost always running 2 lights (about 23hrs/day) but never 3 and never pull more than 1000w of light. So while my photo tent is dark, two 400s are burning outside to keep temps up.

      it is an absolutely gorgeous morning ,we had a couple of inches of snow so the world is clean and the best thing it will be gone tomorrow lol

        A cold, deary, and sunless day at my locale. However my champion entry is flourishing. Ahhhh the vigors of youth. I hope she is an alpha female rather than the alternative. The seed I germinated as a back up is not doing too well. It had a case of helmetheaditis, and I may have hesitated too long for an assist. I read somewhere that you should "lick the head", and that the enzymes will help to remove the membrane below the seed shell. I won't give up on it just yet. It's gonna take a licking, and keep on ticking!

          When they got the helmet on I put them in the breeze from my fan - dries it out in a few hours and then I help.

          Canuck147 I've had normal helmet heads before, but this was not one of them. Usually easily picked off with care. Lots of conflicting information here. https://www.420magazine.com/communit...ing-it.198102/ I myself believe this to be a genetic defect as the mother of this seed was very freaky deaky. Had only one cotyledon, and grew at the slowest rate I have ever seen. Didn't look any thing like a cannabis seedling. It eventually snapped out of it, and produced some excellent flower.

        Been pushing full nutes the last 4 days on my solo cup, watering everday. only watering it companion every couple days like all my other plants. The one in the Solo cup was sewn in Coco the one in the pot was put into a jiffy Cube both germinated at the same time.

          Interesting comparison Mr.furley

        my solo cup plant has sprouted. Need to figure out a way to get more direct light on it. It's hidden under my canopy at the moment.
        Ready to listen and learn

        - 2x2 closet grow w/ Roleadro 600w LED (165w @ wall)

        - 4x Sour Kush autoflowers
        - Millenniumsoils Coco Coir in 1 gallon pots
        - Gaia Green Organic Dry Amendments
        ** Pro-mix vs coco battle **

        Started from the bottom now we're back at the bottom

          Nice! Yeah I've got foam risers, I just don't have any open space at canopy height. Best I can do is partial leaf covered light at the moment. Hoping I'll have some plants out of there in a week or two.

          A small light, like a curly CFL or LED bulb in a desk lamp might be better for now while it's tiny.

        I decided to take a look at the roots. The dirt seed on the left grew more feeder roots than the others with coffee filter and dirt layers. The've grown reeeeeel fast compared to the Purple Hulk autos.
        Hold your breath. The next phase starts.

          Sister Glue by Dutchmen Seeds - hard to see but there's a few hundred pinholes in the cup.

          Sister Glue is supposed to be upwards of 25% THC as well as being high on the CBD scale.

          So - to me - that high of a percentage means lots and lots of trichomes. Hopefully - haven't grown this before. Click image for larger version

            After a couple of failed attempts at cloning and dealing with some side issues with my health, I may actually still have something to grow and show. Day 3, 2 cuttings still looking good. I'm afraid if I dont get this going I'll be watching from the sidelines.

              Day 12/13 for my 3 contenders and only 1 looking like it can make the run.
              Walter White looking good in the coco/perlite.
              BearyWhite x 3bog has the scars from the extended helmet head and eventual surgery and is in the rockwool cube surrounded by clay pellets. I can see roots below reaching down. Could do well.
              3BsOG which was the maybe the earliest to germinate is now stunted due to the easyplug sytem I am trying. It is a precharged cube that is supposed to offer the right ph and ec for a new seedling while only needing water. This is not working out. It could possibly be the plant so I may try another seed in another easy plug according to manufacturers recommendations as I did the 1st time but with even more care to let it drain properly.(not sure if I messed it up but we shall see)

                Figured the roots could grow into the bottom of the cup on an intermmittent drip system but that plan may never see daylight so to speak.
                Your plants are part of a much more creative system then mine. Something has to work out.

              in the first pic the solo cup on left is my entry the one on the right is the volunteer plant while pull it out of pot I broke the tap root so I just threw it on my bench and here we are
              the girls have third set of leafs , I increased there nutrients up to 700 ppm , Happy growing all

                  Mr.furley can't wait to see all of yalls cup grows, it's gonna be fun watching.
                  Oh, yeah, all those grow lights I gave away went quickly.
                  I did keep the HLG, board though, just for the hell of it. It grew nice buds, but not as tight as the 315cmh did, but it got the job done ok, an very cheaply.
                  Good Luck to everyone, and have fun doing it.
