    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. Anyhow have some nice setup pics to show you tomorrow, along with the beautiful girls.

    woooohoooo. cant wait to see another amazing grow!!! heyy wats the plant thats in the back left corner thats flowering??

    looks good,glad to see you got the move done with no problems,i have my inspection today so i had to breakdown and hide my grow for atleast a few hours.

    Someguy15 Well-Known Member

    Nice man, your ladies are looking great for your first round, I'll be sure to check that out.
    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?
    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 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.

    high and scribed man :weed:

    Someguy15 Well-Known Member

    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.
    Glad to have ya along man, should be a good one.
    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:

    wyteberrywidow Global

    I have to agree with you there.

    Someguy15 Well-Known Member

    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

    wyteberrywidow Global

    You just make sure u put up a link i want in.

    Someguy15 Well-Known Member

    Don't worry, for the next year or so I'll probably be using this journal. Go through them too fast at 8 weeks with perpetual, so this will be more accommodating.

    chb444220 Well-Known Member

    yeaa veggin is pretty boring.. =/ only gets interesting about 2-3 weeks into flowering. lol.
