    In the veg room
    I started
    2 exodus
    1 th seeds bubblegum
    1 blimburn green crack
    1 lemon gold drops
    And an auto blackberry kush from dutch passion
    (Which i polinated )

    This way as soon as this runs done ill have plants ready to go already mainlined them except the auto.

    This is getting rid of all my freebies so i can start doing mom hunts through the lemon skunk i got planned for the next run trying to find the same pheno i had years ago :)

    Wow. The wondeful world of pot. Thats quite a selection. I have 4 other plants. 1 one more L Skunk, and 3 Alcopulco Gold. But they are in soil, so i dont consider it growing haha. I'll share pics later.

    What sort of lighs are you running? Looks like maybe HPS?

    Im running a gavita 750. In an 8x8 which everyone is telling me its under powerd.

    Which is true the last run i had i made with my box growing gear so it wasnt ideal at all

    But still pulled over 2lbs with about 1400w.

    This run everything is in way better shape and im running 1 light just to see what it can do for a baseline:)


    When i picked up the light i didnt think about leds just because i didnt know if they where good enough because i had tried some of the earlier blurple lights .

    But now im planning a full led strip build to run in the summer for heat .. but i use the gavita for heat in the winter.

    It looks like its going to do well though . I hope.

    If not ill definitely be adding some leds .

    One more gavita 750 would rock my room but im affraid i would need to add ac to the room and id like to avoid it

    If I didn' spend what I spent on my lights, i would have built 2 for my room already. I still might. A Q board cob hybrid.

    @Cold$moke ya It should be interesting to see what you come away with using that light. I’m pushing a little over 6x6 for each one of my DE 1k’s. Last run was good but current one will really tell the tale. You got a thread?

    @Stltoed man your plants look great!! Chunky as hell, is your center light a CMH? Did you implement any training, topping, supercropping? Plant on the left looks like it was trained by a pro.

    The center light is a CMH. Both are just scrogged. The plants are very different confirmationwise. The plant on the left is just straight up hand grenades on top the plant to the right is more kolas. The only thing they have in common is the smell. But even then, the one the left is very sweet with a hint of pine. The right has a funky back end. Neither has any skunk or citrus. Really kind of pissed about that. Leaf structure is different. The stalk size is the same...

    So the plant that smelled like strawberries and not at all like Lemony Skunk got pulled. It just went into jars, i ended up with 10.7 ounces.

    The pictures below is of the remaining plant. It does smell skunky, so i am assuming it IS Lemon Skunk. Buds are getting thick I think Im under a week till harvest, but I'm in no hurry.

    My system is made from 2 Gen Hydro. Rain Forest systems. I linked them together along with a 27 gallon res. with 2 inch bulkheads. Total volume of nutrients is around 50 gallons. I use an Air Force 80 liter linear pump for the 2 buckets. I have a 500gph water pump to keep the solution moving. I have a Hanna all in one wall mounted meter. Lights are Black Dog and i tried a CMH on this grow. Pretty basic.

    Very nicely done, Stltoed! Great looking plants. I remember thinking that your hydro system was going to make crowding a problem but you pulled it off like a pro. It's a pisser that the Lemon Skunk wasn't what you got. Makes me wonder if DNA is doing their own strains or buying seeds from elsewhere. Both plants produced well regardless and I'm sure you'll enjoy the smoke.

    Wow, that's high praise indeed. I have been thinking if changing things up a bit to make 4 seperate pots, but i would have to rethink my lights. I have been looking at Rapid, Timber and ChilLED to augment, or even possibly replace my Black Dogs. My space is 4x6, and the BDs work well for that area, but i may add more of a "flowering" spectrum to what I have, and ensure the edges of the space are properly supported.

    I did 27 oz. this last round in hydro. From that, I have been thinking of growing just 2 plants, but i like the safety factor of having more plants. Maybe I'll get over that someday.

    I still have a couple plants in soil under a Spectrum King in a tent in the garage. It will be interesting to see how much I end up with total.

    Your grow was insane. If you had to attribute your success to something this season what would it be?

    Control. I control every aspect of the grow and monitor everything remotely and get alerts if something runs outside of my set parameters. Nothing is left to just happen naturally, except when my lazy ass doesn't defol when I should. Everything, from temp, humidity, CO2, and res temps, to the lights are monitored and tightly controlled. I use supplemental heat and AC to control the rate of rise/fall of temps, and humidifier and dehumidifier to control the humidity.
    This is a typical day in my grow for temp and humidity:

    These are three clones, one each of the MamaThai x Pineapple Chunk, MamaThai x ThaiStick, and the Thaibodian Skunk. I like growing sativas. They were in the cloner for just under a month and then put into the flower room 28 days ago. They're responding well to the tropical environment I'm mimicking. I've had to supercrop the bejesus out of them.
