        Thanks y'all. It's strange. After all these years I've never seen a live plant until now.

          I'm continuing the thread to act as sort of a grow journal. Today day 31 I've started my interpretation of LST. I removed first and second true leaves as they were mostly sucked dry. I folded the big fan leaves under whatever I could find then I made hooks out of, I call it stainless steel locking wire, and pinned down the bottom half branches. I left the top half alone and will look at that next week.

            Switched from grow closet to grow tent. It's going to take time to get used to. Tent is a little warmer. That could be a plus or a minus depending on the weather. Folding doors on closet much easier to get into or out of. I'll have to get some shelves for the grow tent. Tent footprint is nice but still need trays or saucer. Cats cannot climb the closet doors but no problem with the grow tent. Now cats aren't allowed in the room without supervision.

            Pictures attached with brief notes. My circulation fan is not due for a couple of days. I'm making due with two fans, one inside one outside, next to a vent near the bottom of the tent. The driving force for the change is to divert smell directly outside. That seems to be working but I'm thinking there might be problems when we get strong winds.

              It smells like really green weed with a little something that smells good. Looks that way too. Unfortunately I have to open the tent door to smell it. I kind of liked it when it filled the room but it was very powerful. The in-line fan was installed today and it's doing a great job. The exhaust to outside also will help with cooling in the summer.

ID:	566128 If you dont mind the smell you dont need the filter. I dont run filters on any of my tents and vent the air into same room. It gets 120° here during summer months my 4x4 uses the most wattage at 540 but tent stays under 80 in hottest months

                  I also enjoy walking in my house and smelling bud growing. When its good in flower you can smell it from my front porch

                    Be careful if you plan on using outside to make seeds. I use a indoor tent in another room besides flower. I'll also not go to pollen room then flower room. Cannabis pollen can travel up to 10 miles. So you running outdoor for seeds could potentially pollinate another home growers plants putting hundreds up to a thousand or more seeds in their plants pretty much ruining their grow. Then they wouldnt know what crossed their plant and have mut unknown seeds by the boat load. Personal preference

                    I forgot about pollen spreading. I've read some stories about that and I'm not that guy. It'll have to come up with a plan b

                    Just keep it clean. If I go to pollen room before flower which is rare I'll even shower beforehand. My grow rooms are the furthest they can be from each other. Luckily I have a spare bedroom upstairs and use it for germinating, vegging, drying and seeding. My flower is in a spare downstairs.

                  I don't want to count my chickens too soon but I'm begining to feel hopeful.

                    Start of week 7. Largest plant is 20 inches. Smallest is 14 inches. I have amended soil with Gaia Green Power Bloom (2-8-4), water with fish emulsion and spray with epsom salt

                      Nah I wouldnt take it to that extreme yet, they should be good just noticed you spraying buds. Just something to be careful of.

                      Yes sir, your plants look awesome, plus health concerns.

                    It appears to me that you have all of the air intakes are closed on your tent. How do you get fresh air inside?

                      Thank you for checking out my pictures. There are three rectangular vents with screens that can't be seen anymore. Two 6x8" and one 6x14". The round pass thru ports are all tied closed because cats.

                    Middle of week 7. I'm starting to see ?flower petals? emerging inside the pistils.

                      Good stuff and bad stuff is starting to happen. Trichomes are starting to fill up. I think I have a combo of bound roots and that initial NPK added at the start of grow is depleted. It's supposed to last a month; now it's been 45 days. Water drains too quickly and output pH is 6.8 same as input. I'm watering every two days now. I added some more Gaia Green Power Bloom and thinking a nitrogen boost next watering too. I suppose repotting is off the table at this point. Have fingers crossed the the top parts stay healthy.

                        Only look at calyx/bud trichomes sugar leaf trichomes amber sooner and are misleading. Looks like phosphorus or potassium deficiency not nitrogen, nitrogen is used mainly for growth, since plants stop growing upwards during flower nitrogen isn't used as much. Your plants are already dark enough meaning enough nitrogen. I'd also remove a bunch of that lower growth next grow if it doesn't receive direct light it wont be any good.

                        Lesson we learn as we grow an make mistakes. Yep too late to transplant and i would remove the largests of fan leaf allow for more airflow under them.

                        GroBuddy Thanks! The trichome pictures are just because I've never seen a living marijuana plant before and everything is something new to me. I noticed the sugar leaves had a little shine a few days ago but I am barely seeing the growth inside the pistols. No trichomes to picture there yet.

                        No pruning until next grow? I guess my new micro Fiskars are going to have to wait for bud trimming to get their teeth wet. I have a list of things to do better next grow. From what I've seen of this grow I have a very narrow window for shaping one of these plants somewhere during the third week. On the other hand, I snapped two fan leaves while bending them under three days ago and haven't noticed a reaction yet.

                        Okay. The Power Bloom 2-8-4 is supposed to be good for a month. But I'm still concerned with the run off.

                        You can take anything at anytime. Just more ideal to have them prepared. So everything's even getting equal amounts of light. In turn maturing closer together for a more equal harvest.

                        Understandable about everything being knew and exciting

                        If the power bloom is dry it'll read high since it's a multitude of slow release nutrients
