So beans were dropped on aug 29, planned on doing 8 but only 6 opened so i popped the last 2 out the pack. 6 went in ProMix on the 30th, low and behold 1 of the stubborn 2 opened with a nice tail this afternoon so in the 7th pot it goes. The last of the stubborn ones has a different color and i dont think will go. But we got those other 2 in the same napkin going.. So hopefully we'll have 9 girl show and if im really lucky a 10 way...

The tent is a 8*8 with a 3xl hood modified for the center pole in the tent, see pic. It worked well and the hood slides up and down with the pole running through. Obviously for a more centered light. If i could go back i probably would have gotten the 5*10 so there would be no pole, but hay i dont have time to send back and wait for a new tent, we got to get this show on the road. Im using well water that has a ph of 7.25ish then ph'ing down to as close to 5.8 as possible. Little bit of rapidroot and gh blend in the initial soak of the promix(2mls each for 2gal) just a little somethin somethin.. Only put 2 litres of the water in each pot, i know i probably should have soaked them completely but i didnt have enough water bubbled... As i stated this is my virgin go at this... So 2 popped there heads up already,yay. Im a little worried that a couple might be an 1" or so down in the medium and not a 1/4" . hopefully some more will be up tomorrow.

All pots under a massive real 250w cfl... Should be good for a bit then ill switch to mh.. Hopefully will have some pics up soon..
All help and criticism will be much appreciated..
Cheers

thanks for stopping in mikey, i was thinking 1/4 at first and bumping it up from there.. See how much they can take then back off a bit. I might just keep them under the cfl for a couple days. The first 6 have all poked there heads up, once they all open up and drop their helmets i will switch to mh..

and these girls love to be topped, they didn't slow down one bit for me.....they don't finish early......but they are pretty impressive smoking.
I topped at the 4th or fifth, and they rewarded me.

ive only got one bud left, and am thinking of growing them again.

Thanks 777. I was lookin at the 10*10, but thought it might be a bit excessive. Good to know Brewer. This is my first go but i think ive seen enough photos to know where to cut, might need a little help around when. I think the consensus is 14-18 days.

Nice sig is there.... Haha... Learning...
So the big news the last soldier from the first soak has cracked and shown her tail. She just went in a pot. So 6 are up, 1 pokin its head, 3 below hiding. I through them under the mh at 50%. 500w to start. We'll see how they like that. About 2 ft high. Its starting to get cold overnight and thought they would like the warmth. Im running 18/6 now. Filter is hooked up and running really low just to help with humidity in the tent. Gave the big 6 a little ring of bubbled water with a little rapidroot and gh blend, 2mls of each in 13 liters. I just keep it bubbling away and when the promix drys out ill give it a ring. Ill take some picks..
Cheers everyone
