1st grow shot! 250w hps closet hempy scrog
Well after a forced hiatus due to computer problems, I am back online just in time for a pic update before harvest. I flushed these both on friday and am giving water till I chop on saturday or sunday of next week.
This grow has been undeniably stressful both to me and the two ladies due to the extreme heat this summer has affected upon the country. Until I move in a few years and get a place with central air I will not be growing from mid june till mid september. Temps in my little grow box have averaged 93+ and limited the growth of both plants but especially the trainwreck. Didn't help with the top shearing incident I had in week one of flower, I can picture how much nicer she would have looked had she not lost 6".
I stayed with the same feeding routine, basically every two days I fed them hard and flushed every 7-10 days with clearex. I think this made a difference in overall bud size and had little to no deficiency problems throughout. While overall yield will be lower than my first grow, this is attributed to the heat more than anything, and the size and volume of the buds is at least on par or better than my first grow. I am a definitely going to use the clearex from now on.
My first grow I trimmed leaves off like crazy, especially on the strawberry. This time around the only leaves that got removed are ones the plants let go of themselves. One plus of the canopy not filling in as nice is I didn't have alot of bud shading and with the temps as high as they were I did not want to stress them any further by removing anything.
By this weekend I hoping for more cloudy trichs and chopping by saturday or sunday as I said.
Here is some pics. Trainwreck first.
