Round 3: Extrema & El Monstre DWC Cooler Scrog in the
Hydroponics / Aeroponics forums; Got the screen installed and now it's time to let these bitches take it over and give me some budz.
Got the screen installed and now it's time to let these bitches take it over and give me some budz.
Hoping for at least two females!
They have been in veg for a month now and I will prob let them go another 2 weeks or until they have filled out the screen. It's a long veg but the veg is what mostly determines the yield outcome.
Good things come to those who wait! Headed to Wal-Mart to get a chain for my light and batteries for the camera. The shitty yo-yo broke and I have it rigged up with rope.
yea man, I didn't use the yoyo that came with mine because it was all frayed and too short on one side, lol. what is the world coming to....
I'm going duck hunting this weekend Had to share this information with someone - its my first of the season and I'm freakin out. About to Alan Parsons the shit out of this road trip.
Didya get a deer yet?
I have always been a deer hunter but I have been wanting to go duck hunting. Never been though.

I shot a spike a couple weeks ago and he put meat in the freezer and since have passed on a few doe in hopes of a big buck coming by me.
I am looking for a big buck but will take another smaller deer soon for more meat if Mr. Buck don't wanna come by. Patience is the key!!
Screen Installation Complete
I got the screen installed at 7 inches from the rez lids.
Yes only 7 inches so hold on to your britches. There is a method to the madness.
The screen is 4x3 and I am hoping to have it covered with 7-12 inch budz! Hopefully!
I am really enjoying these cooler temps. It is alot easier to have the light right on top of the plants and still maintain cooler temps. Maybe I can persuade them into purpling up during the flower.
I didn't install the auto feeder valves but I should be ok topping by hand as long as I don't leave for a week.
Water Temp 65
Cab Temp H 77 L 64

alright, that looks good blu.
Thanks! It was off to a slow start but I think it's back on track now.

The last pic is "Bagseed" and has 10 blades on one leaf and 9 on the other at such an early age. It will be throwing down the 11 blades before long. Not that it has any relevance to the quality of the plant but it's cool looking. Added a little bit of nutes yest and they seem to be doing well with no sign of burns. The screen is empty now but wait another 2-3 weeks and that bitch will be covered with green grass.
Damn, your screen is low. So that's how you do it.
I regret experimenting with organics. My roots looked like yours once.
Yep I keep the screen low and trim as little undergrowth as possible and also like the budz 10-15 inches and solid if possible. If they are too tall above the screen then you will end up with golfball budz instead of donkey dicks. Strain also plays a big role in that. I am a big tucker when it comes to getting the fan leaves out of the way of new shoots. I think that helps me alot. More light, More budz! I'm not sure how the Extrema is gonna produce as opposed to the El Monstre from last grow. That is if I get a female from one of them. I'm pleased with my roots. They could be thicker and whiter but I'm just glad they are healthy! I'm hoping for a very good yield if I get my 2-3 females.

Screen Training: The fun begins!!
I had a change of plans and decided to raise the screen up a little bit and slide my two sport coolers out and install float valves. I set the screen back to 7 inches. My light is 7 inches from the top of the screen also. Now I only have to set up my external rez and hook up my feed lines. I should have had that done before but I was being lazy.
They are coming thru the screen now and will be spreading like wild fire. I plan to flip to 12/12 in about 1 1/2-2 weeks. Depending on how much and fast they grow.
