    Thx! :)

    Yeah, they're two weeks into flower. If got lots of bud sites starting to fill out. Smelling quite pleasant in there, but another few days and I'll probably have to hook up my scrubber. :weed:

    And JS if you get a drum humidifier and wrap the drum in silkscreen you can effortlessly make superb black hash with fluff buds ;).

    Well I didn’t say it was foolproof lol. I’ve only had one issue and it was nothing a fire extinguisher couldn’t handle :(. Honestly if done outside it’s as safe as can be lol. And yup a vac chamber on the cheap lol.

    I find iso has a bite to it but I have not tried it in a vac either which would, if nothing else, speed up the process

    Today I'm tacklng the vertically challenged, which was expected from the beginning. The yo-yos, gate rings, and reflector hangers all take up precious vertical growing space. There's 8" to 10" extra height that can be regained.

    First step is to bypass the yo-yos and hang the reflector from the top yo-yo rings. That gained about 4"! Nexstep will be to bypass the rings and hang the reflector hangers directly from the zip ties, which will gain a couple more inches. Finally, if needed, I can hang the hood directly from the top poles using four zip ties. That'll get another 4".

    Like I said, this was expected and I do this with all my grows. Now that I know how each of these three strains stretch, I can better plan in the future to keep the plants height in check.


    The hood was hanging around 16" above the canopy, measuring 120,000 lumens. Temps are fine, but I don't want to bleach the tops of my plants. Plus, I need to expand the footprint.

    You can see that the yo-yos are maxed out, but there's still a lot of vertical space available.

    Here I bypassed the yo-yos and hung the hood directly from the yo-yo rings.

    With the light raised a bit, I'm no longer worried about scorching the tops, right under the hood where the light is at it's most intensity.

    Back left - Girl Scout Crack. She stretches pretty good, and has been dominating the others for height. I've supercroped her quite a few times, trying to keep the canopy level.

    Back right - Gorilla Cookies. This one was showing signs of boron deficiency when she was early in veg. But I had no way to correct it without overloading the other plants. A few weeks in I bumped up the TDS a fair amount, thinking that it might correct the problem, and cause just a touch of burn for the others, as a side-effect. That fixed the issue and she caught up with the others immediately. This one has dark green, spiky leaves, that look very different than the other three.

    The two in front are White Widows. These were growing so squat and dense that I thought it was going to cause some issues with circulation penetrating the outer leaves. I trimmed these a lot during veg, but stopped when I flipped them.

    Yesterday, I trimmed the very lowest leaves and tiny branches, that would never reach the canopy, and were pretty much completely in the shade. This is the first grow where I haven't continuously trimmed throughout most of the plants' lives, and it has freed up so much of my time LOL!

    Nice

    Yea its always a draw when running multiple strains in one setup
    I know your plight just gotta keep doing what your doing

    As long as you keep them this way they will be sweet :)

    I always advise noobs to only grow single strains in a confined space, for obvious reasons LOL! But then I do the exact thing I advise against! But there's a reason for this. Next grow I only want to grow one of these strains, but I want to know ahead of time which one I wanted to grow. If one of them sucked, I'd hate to have a whole crop of it growing :lol:

    Haha i too try to give good advice
    When i dont follow it my self

    I have some monster pics where i had 23 or so different strain full size (4 footers plus)
    In just 3 systems lmao

    Doing mother runs with me is a fun time haha
    And i usually let them grow till sex shows from seed untopped so i can see the traits they express

    Lol not optimal but it lets you pickout wich girls took the abuse the best haha

    Things are starting to smell real good in the room, so it's almost time to hook up the scrubber. I've become painfully aware that "procrastination" isn't one of the Six-Ps (Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance) that I try to live by. The scrubber is waaaaaay in the back, so I'm going to have to turn myself into Stretch Armstrong to reach it and hook it up! Right now I'm like "Screw it, I'll just leave it unhooked!". It's completely legal to grow here in Oregon, and i'm not shy about it. All my neighborrs are cool! I'll just have to see how strong it gets. I'm at week-3 now, so plenty left to go.

    You can't see the scrubber in this pic, because it's hanging behind the hood LOL!

    Maintenance tip for both noobs and old timers:

    The little 6" fans that are so popular in tent's are really sensitive to dust. It doesn't take much dust buildup at all to get these fans pushing no air. It is so important to be moving air, and many serious problems can arise from lack of circulation!

    It is so easy to pop the front grill off and pull the blade from the spline! I clean mine about every two weeks. I think a lot of people look past how significant it is keeping their fans working optimally.

    Any chance of bleaching?

    I've got my 1k about 13" above the canopy. That's 13" to the glass, and about 15" to the light. Intensity is around 110,000 lumens, and temps are between 75 and 78. Am I in danger of burning/bleaching the tops? I've got 6" of headroom left, so I can still raise the hood a little more, though I haven't seen any more stretching from the girls.
