    What's up everybody I'll have pictures up a little later.
    But I have two pineapple chunk clones and 2 black eyed katy clones in a 2*4*5 grow tent with a SYGAV LED 600w running 18-6, and a couple of strategically placed fans. I'll be using FF ocean forest for soil and for nutes FF grow big for veg and big bloom for flower. I usually do about 1/2 strength with my nutes. My temp is running stable right around 79 degrees and I have humidity floating between 25-40.

    I just got these babies last night after they spent a couple weeks getting their roots and stabilizing. I'll be taking the strongest growing of each strain and make them mothers and seperate them, then switch my other two into flowering after I veg for a few weeks.

    I'll be doing updates on this journal every few days, pictures at least once a week. Feel free to comment if you have any ideas that you feel would better my setup. Much love everybody :peace::weed:

    Day 2: Roots poking out the bottom of the pot on one of my black eyed katy's so I'll probably transfer toa bigger pot either later today or tomorrow, still waiting on the others to show roots. I have RH up to around 60% and my temp is still varying between 75-82 F. So far my plants are loving this SYGAV light. One pineapple chunk was drooping pretty hardcore when I first got them but after one watering and upping my humidity she's perking right back up. Here's a couple decent pics, I'll get better ones I promise :lol: 20180106_125629.jpg 20180106_125629.jpg

    Day 7
    I know it's a terrible idea to transplant to a coffee can, but I have drainage and apparently there's some kind of national law about stores carrying pots during the winter. :? And I was just scrambling around for stable support to put it on. I had temps stable at 81 but they're doing better when I can keep it under 80 and still not feeding nutes. 20180111_103729.jpg 20180108_210059.jpg

    And I'm back with updates. I slacked off for a couple weeks but I'm back :P
    I took one Pineapple and one B.E.K, my strongest growing and flipped them into flower on Jan. 21. So.. math... math.. Day 12 of flowering. Moved the other pineapple and B.E.K to a little veg area to get bigger and use them as mothers. Took my flowering pineapple and have been doing some lst with it. 20180201_071016.jpg 20180130_071042.jpg

    Day 14 of flower and 31 of Veg. Ladies are all looking healthy in both areas, my two mothers are ready for a couple clones from lower branches and then some strategic pruning, flower tent is looking good. It's at the point where every day is longer than the last. Just waiting for buds. 20180204_164556.jpg 20180204_164546.jpg 20180204_164511.jpg

    Day 18 of flower. Ladies are looking healthy and happy, little bit of nitrogen toxicity on my black eyed katy but I'm fixing that as much as I can. Just waiting for solid buds to start appearing. I'm a very impatient person. The very first time I tried growing, and I'm talking like middle school in my closet, I set up a little area to dry and cure it before my seed popped out of the ground. And if you must know.. No that plant did not make it more than a week :lol:

    Day 19 of flower and day 36 of veg. I'm going to take my two mothers and get some clones off of them, let them recover a bit and then move those to the flower tent and start my clones vegging. And then hopefully get a perpetual harvest going sometime within the next month. Turning 4 plants into so so many more :weed:. I think it's funny, there are advanced gardening techniques for all plants out there but has anyone gone so far with any other plant as we've gone with growing better and bigger buds?

    Day 24 of flower and my pineapple chunk is smelling just heavenly. I mean like straight up fresh squeezed sweet pineapple juice :weed: she's also the one fattening up the most, black eyed katy is behind in bud sites but getting frosty as hell. Pics are pineapple chunk, black eyed katy, pineapple chunk. 20180214_181025.jpg 20180214_181117.jpg 20180214_181318.jpg

    Cloning with honey. Stumbled upon this a couple weeks ago and had to give it a go, I don't have any kind of starter cubes or peat pellets so it's straight into soil and solo cups. Took one B.E.K. and one Pineapple Chunk clone 5 days ago and I'll be checking for roots once I hit day ten, not super optimistic about those just because of how small they were. Took 2 more B.E.K clones today exact same way just much better cuts. Cut, put in water, trim leaves, agitate bottom of stem a little bit, cover in honey and into the cup and humidity dome. (Used raw organic honey) I'll post my success rate here in a few days and if they take then mommy is getting transplanted and going into flower :hump:

    Day 29 of flower and I'm getting impatient again. So far it's looking like the clones have taken okay with the honey. Only problem is I don't have any kind of starter cubes or pellets so they're in soil and solo cups so I can't moniter root growth like I would like to. Bottom two clones are at day 9 or 10 now left is pineapple chunk and right is black eyed katy, top two are both black eyed katies and on day 3 now.

    Here's a couple of the flower tent. Took my other two big ones and moved them to the flower tent and did some LST on the next pineapple chunk. My black eyed katy has some crazy claw going 20180218_185903.jpg

    And a before and after of my next LST'd pineapple chunk

    I tied it down a bit more today but that was as of last night.

    And into day 32 of flower for my first two and day 4-5 from flip on my other two. Pineapple chunk is starting to fill in nicely, she'll have some weight when she's done swelling up for sure. Black eyed katy has been struggling with nitrogen problems since she was in veg, definite note on that strain as both of my b.e.k started showing the claw with any kind of veg nutrients, so that's slowing her down and hurting her yield a little bit. More and more purple every day. My pineapple is stinking up the whole house with this sweet fruity smell but a good stem rub and it's just cheese soaked in diesel fuel. This round was more of a test of all the grow stuff I just bought than really going for the gold. Next round will be some Chemdawg and I'll be filling my canopy out and doing SCROG getting shit done. And no f'ing coffee cans that was a nightmare.

    Beautiful looking buds dude!! I had the same issue not being able to find pots so I went online and found exactly what I needed, check around, there may be a local plastics company who sells online, that's what I found near me.

    I'm not sure what you've notice but metal can mess up your PH so if you're have issues with PH or lock out it may be from the metal containers.

    Glad to see your pineapple chunk is nice. I had two seedlings of it and they were so far from indica and pineapple. Cheers and good growing

    Thanks much I appreciate it man! But yeah even Amazon's got it going on but I just spent $500+ on grow equipment and clones and I ran outside my budget :lol:

    Okay well thank you for that info, I haven't heard that before. it was most definitely a last minute panic mistake I will not do again haha. But yeah the pineapple chunk is just outgrowing the b.e.k in every way. I've heard good things about b.e.k but I definitely won't have it in my next runs.
