    Prepping for a side by side next run that will be all clones. Also got the hydro setup done in the new veg tent and I'm stoked about that. Needed to start cutting down on my workload. Looking great in your garden as always brother.

    Cheers

    Yes, true vegging is in that 2x4 tent above. I'll typically bring up clones and seedlings in cups in the 32x32 with the blurples (that Top LED (Mars) panel is 4+ years old and still going). When they come out of the cups they go into the 2x4 tent to veg in 1gal's under 3x 65w Citi 4000k/90cri COBs. I put them in there to replace an old/broken Mars panel I was using about 5-6 months ago. Liking the results under those COBs, nice fast veg with little power and heat, like 25w/sq.ft. and the tent stays 75-77F.

    Lol, another veg tent, slowly taking over the house ;) Good luck with your health and the hydro, definitely less physical work than soil so not a bad idea at this time.

    I thought a lot of those might be holding clones etc. Man that's a lot of strains/phenos, get to that 50 mark an open up JD's Klone Shop :) Great method btw, for the most part I've been cloning the clone while still in the cups. Super-cropping them generates enough nice branches to clone them. Just checked some (Aero cloner) I threw in last weekend before flipping the plants and 1/2 are ready to root this weekend :)

    No actually I'm turning the other 3x3 into a dedicated dry area and just going to use the hydro/veg tent to feed the 4x8 flower tent which will be hydro eventually as well.

    ok,cool.ty man.do you think the 4k is keeping your plants more squat? that would be key for me.

    Not really, they're not as tight as the blurples which I use the veg switch only, meaning more blues and they produce more tight nodes. It's not a huge difference but there is a bit more stretch if you start them under 4000k's. In that case maybe go up to 5700k's, I use 5700k in the veg cabinet to start seedlings when the 32x32 tent is in use. I started the 19 seedlings under the blurples now in that cabinet with the 5700k's, all are squat/tight nodes, pretty well identical to brining them up under the blurples. I grabbed the 4000k's on purpose and for some flexibility as I could use them for flowering as well but I start them and go 3-4 weeks in the party cups under more blues like the blurple and 5700k's. The blurples or 5700k's do seedlings or clones, when they're ready to up-pot/veg I switch them to the 4000k's, then flower under 3500k's.

    They'll definitely help with your heat, regardless of the colour you end up going with. Never noticed too much but it's a tough one to track because I've been throwing in mixed strains into a bucket which is a huge variable, strains can make a big difference. I can tell you that last run I averaged a 17% return on 177 micron for the caps which is the highest I've seen to-date.

    Getting there with these 4x 3gal's at day 47. Blue Pyramid is done, one more light watering tonight and pull tomorrow at day 48. Blue Harley and Columbian Gold will be good to go at 50-52. Skunk #1 looks like another 4-6 days...

    Likely last shots under the lights for the 3gal's finishing up. Will pull between tomorrow night and Monday, maybe let a couple go until Wednesday. They're pretty well done other than the Skunk #1 needs a few days.

    The first 3 are done imo, couple of white hairs here & there, cloudy, the odd amber on the lowers on the Blue Pyramid and Blue Harley. Full plant and cola shots to show their ripeness at day 47.

    So your tent is more like a large humidor or smoking lounge bongsmilie

    Those 4x Columbian Ripper's I have coming up in the flower room are stretchers! :shock:
