Right on man. I've done a little tree work, but just utility easemeet clearing. That's what my dad does up here now that there isn't any logging going in locally. He used to contract cut ran his own timbco feller butcher. Where are you logging out of?

Hey guys,

Did a little super cropping today to see how many bud sites I can get out of her. Still some new burning issues, not sure what's up with that. Ph is steady between around 5.9 to 6.6ish. I raised the lights a few inches to see if it might be light burn, which I doubt with only 140w cfl. But overall I'm pretty happy with new growth. I'm at day 10 now since transplanting the clone. Comments welcome.

Hey guys,

Been busy with school the last couple days but after the super cropping and a little fimming I did a while ago my plant is starting to bush up nicely. PH has been steady around 6.3-6.6 with temps in the low 80s lights on, low low 70s lights off. Still some burning going on on quite a bit of the leaves and I flushed her 3 days ago with 2 gallons of plain water to no avail. Added some cardboard fan shrouds for when flowering time comes to avoid light leaks.

If any of you guys suspect anything causing these burns please let me know.

Anyone know what this issue could be? It's been 3 weeks since I transplanted the clone and now even the newest growth is under some stress. Still keeping steady ph and temp. I have been watering with well water that is run through a softener before the tap so I'm wondering if that's an issue.

Just an update for anyone following. At day 22 flower so far and took clones 5 days ago to give monster cropping a try. Buds are looking nice, still getting a little burn in some spots but I've pretty much given up on perfection and I think the plant is doing ok.

Got a dome over them and one 23 watt cfl over that. Been misting and changing air at least twice a day. Just opened vents yesterday to try drying soil out. No heating mat, but I figured what I'm doing will work at some point.

I spy a rooted clone. Super stoked that one of my clones has already taken root. Hopefully the rest follow suit so I can share the love with a couple friends. I was keeping it dry after a few days following a tutorial I read but went with the gut and increased the humidity by closing off the vents and misting several times a day. Hoping for the best.

Hey everyone! Gonna bombard you with some photos. My girl is going on day 28 flower. 4 monster cropped clones have rooted and are on day 2 after transplant. Starting to get some nice sugar on the leaves, looks like it'll be some good smoking herb not before too long.

Hey guys, been a while. My girl is going on day 45 flower and her clone is 19 veg. Starting to get some pretty good bud development and can't wait to smoke some of it. My clone has started to take off, though after transplanting into a breathable pot of ffof she got a little burnt but I seed to alleviate that by flushing close to 10 gallons of fresh water. Here are some photo updates.

Today was harvest day. Flushed her with straight water over the last 2 weeks and kept her dark the last 48 hours. Not sure if that does anything but figured why not? Got 181 grams wet and stems included and 53 grams of trim. I'll update a dry weight later.

Dry weight ended up being right at an ounce. Not bad for my first space bucket grow but hoping for a little more in a couple months from her clone. I have the bud curing now but have been sneaking a few buds out and smokes great already. Made some budder with the trim and a batch of pb cookies and those are a good time.

Until next time,
AKmack
