Hello my dear 420 family friends and followers!
I'm back (never left?) For the second installment of growing strawberry kush in a bath tub. The first adventure was a fun one but I am hoping that was the tip of the iceberg in relation to what will hopefully be a life long love affair with the amazing healing plant that is cannabis.
The girls I am about to flip have been used and abused quite a bit because I ended up with too many plants in far too small of a space. They are on the mend now and need be flipped before I have more plant than space yet again.....
First maybe a little about me?
I live in Alaska with my beautiful wife and child. I love dabs but mostly all things cannabis. I did a lot of production (making concentrates) before moving up here but only had one incomplete grow under my belt before my recent harvest. Needless to say I'm hooked. I poked around many sites and I couldnt stand the lack of respect "community members" treated their peers with. Especially the new growers, so i joined 420 mag back in september (I think). The truth is there's more then one way to skin a cat and God only knows how many different ways to grow cannabis, and I fell in love with the positive encouraging community here and the rest it history.
I started growing in hempy, but am trying basically pure coco this grow.
This will be my raw info post and I will either edit pics in but probably try and just do a separate post.... time will tell

Bathtub is nearly 5 foot by 2.5 foot by 8 foot.
But as you may know I like to spread em real good. This is my final "grow for yield" grow, as I will dive into pollen chucking next.
I haven't grown in the "warm" months here yet, but I range 75 to 81 lights on and humidity is normally between 35% and 50%
For feed schedules in coco suggest cultivators coco thread and feed schedule
How to grow in Coco - Feed schedule
I roughly follow his feed levels.
Last and never least, I need to give a huge shout out to all of you who have helped me become the grower I am today and hopefully the grower I will be years from now. I don't feel we should never stop striving and pushing the limits of what is possible and what is accepted knowledge.

Thank you all so much for being here. Please let me say we love to have laughs and joke, so my advanced apologies to teddy for any content that need be removed. And let me also say that while we joke and poke fun it's because we are friends and feel we know how much harassment the other can take. **If anyanyone EVER feels uncomfortable bullied or threatened, please message me directly and we can work through it.**
I only want this to be a fun respectful, and most importantly, an EDUCATIONAL thread for growers new and old (in age and/or experience)
So welcome all to the dabbin' cabin, help yourself to a seat, snack, good times and great meds...
