    Achieving Perpetual Harvest

    By jove, I might have it figured out! But probably not, LOL.
    Felt like I was doing perpetual germination there for a bit
    Every container has a different strain in it, and that is a challenge. (Two are the same, FBL lemon skunk - formally named Thing 1 and Thing 2) Different strains mean different flowering rates, so even if I plant the seeds on the same day, they will grow however they do.

    Ms Beauregard is a 1-plant jungle. Gonna have to just let her do what she wants because she was badly stunted.

    All 6 of the small ones in pic #4 (including a photo over on the right) were put in dirt on 12/15 and given the same light, same dirt, same everything. They have become big enough to withstand the light in the 18/6 tent. since they were practicing in the 2x4x5 tent with the 600w LED lights that are not the best. First veg only, then switched both, where I got to see exactly who was gonna freak out (Dark Devil was not a fan at first...)
    Saw pistils on DD 2 days ago, so moved it to big tent in the margin. (she's not yellow - that's the light ) Turned down to 85% and watching each one closely. Anyone stretching or leaning will get more light. Anyone looks shy, they will go back to the 12/12 tent, but I don't expect it.

    The rescues -the most mature ones - are fattening up. The NL x LS pistils are finally curling and browning. Yay! The others are sativa crosses and I expect them to go longer.
    The photos are Trufula, the Irene Apricot accident clone that is now an amazing mama, and Animal Crackers that is fixing to be topped.
    Mary, the Critical Kush photo in the 3-gallon from seed has the 2x4x5 all to herself now.

    It's hard to stagger the plants just right from what I found. So I finally thought I had it close and then had the thought that I wasn't letting my girls reach their full potential. So now I'm going to try individual grows in each tent. Hopefully you got yours down and the right timing and everything goes much smoother for you than it did for me.

      From the looks of your DD you won’t have much more than me. Of the three strains I started it was the one I was really looking forward to trying and you’d know it’s the one not doing well.

        If both of us are having the same situation with the Dark Devil, it might be the seeds? I know we got the same ones Maybe they are late to get up and go? I know one of yours washed out, but it's growing. Not unusual to see pistils before they take off. Stay strong, lol!

        So do I, which is why these good folks at GWE let me stay and pat me on the head occasionally.

      I use a wall calendar to keep track of feedings. When you stagger it’s best to keep strains that’s grow alike on the same schedule bc it’s easier to keep track, meaning 8wk strains with 8wk, 9wk with 9wk ect. You’ll have atleast one plant every grow f’up you schedule so make sure your veg tent is big enough when things get backed up. If you have a powerful light you can’t stagger more than 2wks or you’ll hurt the 1st set of plants by not going to full power soon enough. Then if you rush it you’ll stunt them all. Once I get all my plants moved in it takes about a week to get my lights up to 100% at 36” above canopy then I can start lowering so that’s something to keep in mind . Once you get it figured out it’s pretty sweet to have new bud to smoke every couple months.

        Right on target i try an do it the same way. I do run different strains but i look at the time frame like bboyfromwayback does an try an keep those strains together when i start planning the grow. Yes i'm writing down when i water, feed every time. When i see the pistels showing i write that down for a general idea. But that's me i like keeping records on what i do with the plants.

        Haha...ahead of ya. I have a very detailed spiral notebook. I also make use of risers and "the veg zone" meaning my light can flower 3x3, but veg 4x4 footprint, so veggies get set along the edges. Instead of moving the light, I move the plants. I don't need to start any new ones for a bit. Film at 11.

        I’m getting ready to try something new a lot of people seem to be using and Nebula just finished a grow with it. Living Soil mixed into CocoLoco. That would definitely simplify everything. Just check your ph and water everything the same.

      This is my idea of a perpetual harvest - all autoflowers - big one in front is Revolver and the other 2 bigger ones are Purple Kush. I stunted one of the Kush but that might be good cuz her trichomes are way cloudier than her bigger sister so she will be the first to harvest with the other 2 a couple of weeks behind.

      The 3 smaller ones on the right are - 2 Girl Scout Cookies and a Bruce Banner. Bruce Has 5 nodes so she will be topped soon. Click image for larger version

        So revolver comes in a auto form @Canuk147? Hmm either way i'm putting this one on a short list. I've been reading up on her from another members post.
