    ha..........I don't know about glorious, maybe more of a relief that I'm done with these bitches/ just gotta smoke all of it and they'll be out of my life forever:P

    May not have enough time to do a final dry weight before vaca/ it's just three days.....either way ill get one up at some point

    Good idea........ill do it when I put up my dry weight, which will conclude this grow..........


    After 3 days of darkness........1&2 001.jpg 002.jpg 003.jpg 004.jpg ....very dry and bitter bitches:P

    the chop...... 005.jpg 006.jpg 007.jpg 006.jpg 009.jpg 010.jpg ....so I did a rush job(1 hr lol) and a conservative trim cause I don't really care that much about the appearance.............saved most of the lower popcorn shit too because i roll and it will work nicely with some tabacco for afternoon smokes..........the stuff left on the plant in the pics I ate it!ha....yup with olive oil and lemon(salad) and I got a little buzz going:)

    008.jpg ....well this is #1's root system, you can see where I tore her main tap root(the bulb node)when I VLST'd her and instantly lost a large sum of my yield..........was a BIG mistake and got punished for it.

    That's it..........I'll try to get a final weight before I leave/ but if not properly dry ill wait till I get back...........oh and i'm gonna paper bag them before I head out...no other choice............be safe and happy growing RIU



    *We will never forget!*

    Well with a sigh of relief I'm sure you are glad to have this one over. You have some really nice lookin nugs bro, at least you know what caused #1 not to react. I believe you did one hell of a job and I think you will enjoy that smoke as much as I did. :clap::clap::clap::weed::weed::peace:

    Enjoy your vacation knowing you'll have something to come back to and enjoy.
    Happy Growing!!!

    It's glorious. Don't fight it. They look great. #1 was a little retarded but that's ok, we still love her the same. I'm sure her smoke will be just as potent. Enjoy the vacation, relax, come back and enjoy the fruits of all your hard work. You deserve more rep but I have to spread it around first. Can't wait for the next show.

    Alright so I figured I'd give a quick weight before I bounce out the door...........the buds are actually pretty dry due to the low rh here in North east for the last couple days/maybe one more day max....

    weight..... 001.jpg 002.jpg 003.jpg 004.jpg 005.jpg ....so 49.3grams which includes 1&2 and all the popcorn shit(ha ate some too for my flight!)......off of 56 watts led....... 65w full actual draw(driver&fan)....but I ran most of their veg at 28w and 43w for a couple too, so id say it would be fair to average around 50-55w total till finish........blah

    *first I'd like too say that the panel is great and this was not a proper TEST for it due to me force flowering these crappy auto's*

    lesson learned....

    -I would think long and hard about running auto's under this particular panel.....not a good fit IMO
    -If your gonna run cocco either go straight(w perlite and correct ph/cocco nutes) or use it as an amendment(no more than 30%)in your mix
    -Also don't lst or excessively move your plants in smartpots with cocco.....the roots shift easily and can tear as you saw with my #1's root system which was a fifth the size of #2 and honestly was surprised that it yielded anything(#2 root system wasn't that impressive either due to the constant movement for pics)
    -A sealed summer room with no ac/no intake or exhaust works ....but me not being able to supplement co2 halfway through and the constant temps over 85f decreased my yields(id say a total of 30 out of 100days it was below 85)....this would not have worked without a low wattage led IMO.......
    -I still believe that less is more under leds.....less water/less nutes! even with my high temps water and nute uptake was slow...I even overfertlized the girls at really low doses....which I couldn't believe, but that's what they showed......
    -This panel can easily achieve 1g per watt....If both my girls where the same, this grow would have been a success in my eyes(even with this bad pheno I had/ can only imagine what a great hybrid could do)....but I had to many firsts in this grow and it showed:P

    Well that's it and I'm outta here..........i'll stay in touch with my phone............much love RIU.......next round should be up in three weeks..........be safe and happy growing!!!

    Congrats on ending the misery, Psu!

    49g... from two wacked out "autos" using approximately 55w of leds during summertime heat? I'll take that!
    Good job, man. Looking forward to hearing more details about the next grow... Enjoy your holiday.

    Great conclusion. In another grow or two that light should be able to pay for another one, now that it's already paid for itself :bigjoint: Looking forward to your next grow man.

    Yeah not a terrible conclusion..........I weighed the buds when I got back it's the same(+- .8 gr) minus the popcorn buds I ate for the flight to FLA......Hans is STILL deciding if he will send me a panel for the comparison grow VS indagrow 100/ he's sold out of panels till october, so the it might be a little bit of a wait till round two......But I'm excited to try this led bred strain from one of our own led growers, you may know him;-)

    Hiya PSUAGRO! I got a text from darryl @ Inda-Gro and he asked if you're the same guy I was telling about on the side by side. I told him it sounds like it is. He asked me to just confirm via PM to me, or even here if you like, just the state you wanted the light shipped to. If it matches the info in an email he got earlier today the Pro-100-PAR light will ship tomorrow at no charge. I hope it is you bro cuz the 100 has surprised more than a few people with the results all the way through flower. Keep it to a small 2 x 2 area and you'll see what I mean. The tops can get within 6" of this light with no damage to the beauties beneath.

    Here's my final update.
    Cut all plants between week 8 and 10.
    Not really big buds. Still got 174 grams. And had to ditch a big bud due to mold.
