    Looking great thus far. You've got a lot of clip lights there. Next time for savings i suggest getting some Y splitters for $4 vs $9 for the cheapest clip light I've found in near by stores. Personally I used 3 splitters per clip giving me 4 outlets socket considering the low watt and amp draw of cfl's. Also used 1/4 ratio of 65k/27k.

    What nutes and strain are you running this grow?

    The strain I'm not sure was told but even banner from the bag of weed where I got the seed. As for nutes I'm using blue planet seaweed extract and foxfarm tiger bloom and big bloom. Yeah I didn't know how many light didn't even think it was Gona grow then it started and I just kept adding lights. I hope she's ready in a few weeks. Week 7 is my birthday (sept 5) I'm hopeinng for a birthday harvest :)

    Since genetics are an unknown judging by leaf structures and the spacing of flowers she's a hybrid with the skinnier fingers on the fan leafs and the stretch in parts tells me sativa(ish), tho the fans are 5 fingered say indica by most characteristics. So flowering would be expected at 8 weeks, 9 at the most. Could be off by a couple days but again unknown bag seed. Fingers crossed for that b-day crop out.

    Plant looks good...

    From the looks of her she's Sativa dominant...I'd say at least 60 days minimum...jus watch the buds... swelling... colors...hairs...tricomes...etc...pics of mature buds all over internet

    1A394BD8-F92E-4F57-8643-1612240DDEDF.jpg Here is week 4 the resin is really starting to show when brush smells like dank... I have been think it's a hybid for a while for the same reasons the leaves spacing is more sativa but the leaves are more indica. When should I start using just ph water? I went out and had to get some damprid container for humidity it stay around 45-50 burning the day and 50/65 at night: it seems to be working now. What happens if I harvest a week early?

    Keep it up man the levels seem about perfect. I know a guy running full hydro in a full bedroom and always told me never above 50% humidity during flower (as a beginner or novice and/or dealing with unknown genetics) to prevent mold and bud rot.
    Is your humidity that high due to watering and moisture from the grow or you running a humidifier?

    Honestly have no clue why, I live right now it's pretty hot and humid outside, around 95-100 and sitting around 80+humidity (outside). I have an ac running and a couple of fans as well keeping the day time around 45-50 humidity with constant 72 degrees but the night is struggling to stay below 65 humidity still. I'm also inside a 2x4 room, the plant got a lot bigger then expected or planned so the space isn't where it should be. There's always a fan running though so never still air. I'm at 4.5 weeks and planning to take it down in 2.5 week hopefully, if I don't have to by a dehumidifier I'd be happy considering there's such short Time left. IMG_2509.JPG

    Looks like you've still got a little while left. At least a couple weeks. I've got a mystery hybrid too. Mine isn't quite as stretchy that. But she does grow those skinny finger leaves. And her buds usually form long dense colas. She seems to take between 10-14 weeks to finish.

    That sounds solid ya I know I got some time, I'm forced to harvest sooner then later due to.... legality issues and what not, (the landlord my be comin over I don't live in a legal grow hahah) sooooooo I think I got 2 weeks till that happens. Hopefully it will be ready then. IMG_2513.JPG

    Those buds I'm betting are gonna about double in size when she's all done. What are your plans for flushing? Straight water, bites(such as bud candy{as I've read} or molasses water?
    Personally I've always done straight water. Never dabbled in Ph or Ppm like in hydro nor additives from select fertilizer brands. Have given serious though into the molasses for future crops to come.

    I actually have planned on flushing with straight water, ph at 6.5 around a week before harvest so 2 waterings with straight water. I went out today to and got a dehumidifier so now I'm sittin at 39. I may have to move her for a couple hours to a car however.... found out I'm having a refinance company comin over. A vary unexpected bump..... I really hope it doesn't mess anything up.

    Lmao! Sorry to laugh but i had my first grow where I had finally dialed things in for my setup. My landlord had his insurance adjusters stop by while i was away leaving a note saying they'll be by later. So what i had to do was swap the door knob for a lock and "accidentally lost my key" when they came in to inspect. Was alll worried about the smell so i had put my cats litter box right by the inside of the door before locking it.

    Very nice growth, really nice looking plants.
    I'm seeing a little brown in your hairs, when it's 70/30 brown, your good to go.
