Well, for the next year it looks like I'll only be running 1kw for flowering...and space is a concern for perpetual, but I really don't want to lose 3-4 weeks vegging. Going to start flowering in a day when I figure out where to stick a mother. Might need to buy a small tent to contain 1-2 small mothers in the little space I have left in the closet... stupid door opens in and I don't feel like ripping it out.

Looks good man can't wait to see this grow! I have a similar setup for next round :) One Love!
Nice man, your ladies are looking great for your first round, I'll be sure to check that out.
Sweet, I got here in time for a front row seat. ;)
Glad to have you. Hey I was wondering if you do a full sealed setup for co2 or if you do fill/vent cycles? A/C is out of the question for now because it's a walkin' on a interior wall of the building, but I was thinking maybe my fan could be killed for 30 mins at a time for injections, is it even worth running it in this fashion?
Yeah this is a nice setup right here.I want to see this express.
Thanks, glad to have your support! Girls are getting their first 12 hours of dark right now, 8 short weeks until harvest!

haha thanks man, the flowering girl is the Afgan Kush...she just wasn't quite ready to be chopped before the move. I'd say she's got about a week left based on the hairs/trics, can't wait to try her. smells intoxicating like the PE but with a whole different scent.

Yea the girls made it ok... my 30 gal tubs with lids only ended up being 18 inches tall and most of my plants were 24+ inches including the pot height, so they got supper cropped by the lids. But they made a quick recovery and look great under the 1k. Inspections SUCK man, if they did a full one I'd be fucked...to much stuff to hide. My issue is in flowering... kill the fan for the noise and then the plants just start wreaking. I've decided turning the carbon filter off is never worth it for me lol



Thanks for stoppin' in everyone, I'll update pics about once a week and let you know my new trials and tribulations in my new place. I have decided to let the LA Woman strain go, in search of better options. So I'll be flowering 8x PE and 3x LA this round...Looking to get a small mother tent and keeping a PE mother and a Afgan Kush mother for next round...but due to timing of seeds, mothers & cloning, next round might be pure PE...o what a tragedy.

Forgot to upload a important pic. If you look at pic 1 in the first post, this is the other side of that right wall. Looks clean as hell, but it's so loud it would be hard to just say 'o that's just the fart fan'

Some shots of the new mother tent. Using a GL60 (2'x2'x5'3") with 2 85 watt cfls and a small fan for exhaust. This gives me just enough space for 2 small mothers and a cloning tray. Now I just have to figure out where to veg for 3-4 weeks under the 4' 8 tube and I'm ready to rock for another year.

LOL that's awesome with the vent. Hey man I see you're going perpetual. I plan on doing the same thing on my next grow. Good luck man I'm subbed!
This is what I'm basing my next grow on
Link didn't work. I have been perpetual ever since my second harvest. I like to veg 4 weeks, so I just take clones 2 weeks after I start flowering one batch. I run even 8 week harvests, so 2 weeks to root, 4 weeks to veg and they are perfect to go right into 12/12.
damn man looking fucking gorgeous as always! Very happily subd, I'll be watching from the sidelines. +rep it if I can
Glad to have ya along man, should be a good one.
Looking nice and clean as always. I'll be checking in on you! lol
nice veg tent setup! can't wait to see how this one turns out!
high and scribed man :weed:
Thanks guys...give me a few weeks I'll have some nice prebud shots up. Journals with veg suck right? everyone should just skip to start of flowering :lol:

Afgan Kush is looking amazing, smelling intoxicating! Maybe about 4-5 days left on her hopefully. If the smoke is as knock out as I'm thinking it will be, I'll germ another fem seed for a mother. Unfortunately, it will take too long to give up clones for round 6, so I plan to run 25% afgan & 75% PE on round 7. Round 6 will be 100% PE :D
