First let me start by saying around a year or so ago I use to post on here. Since then I had a run in with CSA ( child services ) because I use marijuana as a pain remedy for a broken neck from a number of years ago.

Anyways that outa the way I recently started growing again. I moved set up a new grow area for myself and as off Oct 31 2016 I had to little seedlings going again.
I don't have pics from when they first sprouted unfornetly but this is a pic when I transplanted from there 1 gallon home to there 5 gallon final pot.



From this point for me it was just trying to remember how to grow. Trying to turn your brain back on after a year of not growing is not as easy as you think. I can say I started back up with my 4' - 4' - 6.5' grow tent. I'm using a 400 watt digital ballast. An 18" ocilating fan, a carbon filter withan Inline fan for exhaust. My grow medium is HP pro mix.
I do enjoy training my girls for an optimal yield so I personally enjoy working with both LST and a Scrog setup. Though LST slows growth a small bit my new girls took extremely well to it.



One thing I should mention is I did start these ladies out under CFLS befor setting them under the 400 watt.



I'm not the biggest fan of using CFL's, they do work.
White Cookies

Maui-Waui


Mind you they didn't stay under the CFLs for long. I soon moved them under my 400 watt, which I had dimmed down by 25% so they were utilizing 300 watts. They honestly took well to this ( obviously ) and exploding with fresh new growth. Both ladies were topped only once. Also when they moved under the 300 watts.
Since the start of this grow I have trimmed excess leafs of twice and work on Lst based on growth during the given week. Again both ladies have taken well to this. With Lst both girls are sitting around the 14 to 16 inch mark in hight. Come January first I'll more then likely start to slowly switch the light cycle to 12 and 12. At this point I will also lolly pop both plants.

Some last pictures for you to see where these ladies are at
White Cookies

Maui-Waui Note this girl when she got under the big light decide to put on a good 4 to 6 inchs over night and grew right up to the light and started to burn herself


Anyways thanks for checking out my new grow journal. All I'm put is more then welcome, criticism as well. I'm her to learn everything I can slowly but surely.
And please follow along and watch the magic happen.

Alright so it's been some days. And these to ladies are just getting bigger. The plan to flower January first has been scrapped due to needing a new carbon filter, which is fine. Both girls are currently drinking 5L of water every 5 or so days. I allow there 5 gallon pots to dry to the point where the top is almost dusty if you blow on it. Forgive me for the pics, I left these girls under there light for them.


This next pic is just the white cookies from @CropKingSeeds

Next is the maui waui from from Nirvana

Last is a pic from a few days ago of the white cookies.

Hopefully I'll see some responses this time. Either way im glad to be back on here and even more glad to be growing again.

Sorry to hear about your run of bad luck but glad to see your growing again. Looks like your off to a great start. I've been wanting to grow some Maui wowie so I'll be watching yours. Back in the day when Columbian Gold was prevelant the Hawaiian Maui Wowie was the shit and a real treat to find some. It inhad that piney smell and taste with a high that made you giggle and couldn't get the smile off your face. I don't know if the genetics are the same doubtful after all these years but I sure would like to smoke some. Good luck with your grow.

Really appreciate the reply @Killian
Honestly I agree with you about the genetics. Though I have grown this strain befor of Maui. It def did not Coe out with the piney scent you refered to. That being said you never know I guess. Also the last time I grew her she def did not look like this. These two are around 14 inchs tall, that's after being LST'd. Fingers crossed

P.s. Def gave me the giggles though after smoking and was happy to go get busy which was nice.

Just thought I'd add some new pics of the girls under some CFL lighting. Def better then that red light lol. These two are def due for a hair cut again. Both girls are showing a hint of heat stress and the Maui waui is def showing a bit of light burn again. I caught it earlier this time so I feel better.
First two pics will be of the ladies side by side.

Next is just the smokin hot whitecookies from cropkingseeds

Followed by the mauiwowi from Nirvana

Lastly just some beautiful fresh growth

Def so far my best grow so far. ( I think this is only number 4 under my belt ). Anyways happy new years to everyone and besafe

There doing quite well. Today both girls got a good trim done to open them back up. Also the maui wowi was flushed. Give her a break from ferts for the next 2 waterings.

Just another update
Girls are still on cruze control. The whitecookies from CKS is just on fire turning into a big beautiful bush. And the maui-waui just keeps getting bigger.
Today both girls were def due for a hair cut. Needed better light penatration. Also the Maui-waui was due for a good drink, she def looked a bit rough, but some water and ferts will def clear that up.
Whitecookies befor

That's a good question Mitten. I currently have not decided. I will probably pick up a new carbon filter this weekend. And my thoughts are, let these two recover fully from the trim / lawn more job I did. Then flip the switch to 11 / 13.
