First grow in this system ..... I'm using emerald harvest nutrients... Growing in a 7.5 gallon reservoir... With a 125w actual in a closet that is about 1'x4' and about 7' tall .... Feel free to drop me some pointers!!

so i received a Bubblegum clone about 5 days ago from a friend with 2 tops present and have since them transplanted it into my DWC reservoir .... i then fed it half nutrients .... bout a day after i started training .... i super cropped the top and gave the surrounding nodes a chance to catch up ..... after about 24 hours two more tops popped up ..... i then started a bit of LST and tied down the tallest top to make a more even plain for the light ..... once again the surrounding tops caught up to the tallest one .... and more tops popped up.... so i ted the other side of the plant down and whala two more tops ..... so now here we are 5 days in and we now have 6 tops rocking .... a couple more days and the two newest ones should be catching up to the rest and then i can move my light up to continue veg....

so as of Thursday we are officially into week two of veg .... the old gal continues to get bigger and bushier.... i noticed the yellowing and found a bunch of little brown dots...figured out it was a cal-mag deficiency.... i went and got some of emerald harvests cal-mag to get that sorted out ...... i also picked up some orcha to keep my roots happy .... at this point i am at full nutrients according to EH feeding chart ....i also picked up another 125w bigbulb cfl ... so now im at 250w actual i hung the second one vertically in the corner .... i also have a 26w 100w equivalent cfl hanging vertically as well ... i also built a scrog net and started scrogging the old gal ....i have 55 holes in my net hopefully i can fill each one with a kola ..... once the net is about 75% full i will switch her over into flowering ....

hey everyone im having some temp issues my grow room is staying around 90 and i cant seem to get it to go down .... would a 4" inline duct fan at the top of the closet be enough to pull all the hot air out ?

Whassup Torch420?:Namaste:
Took a while to find your grow but I'm glad I did.
I like your style and I like your plant.
You got her looking swell!

Don't be afraid to trim a little of those huge fans.
The pics of the trunk made me smile. :circle-of-love:
Reminds me a bit of my last run with this strain.

Do take some clones.
Take at least 6 if you are able.
Then keep the best and cull the rest.:rip:

Sounds cruel but if u gonna go perpetual it becomes a hunger games kind of thing. (Shout out to Shiggity Flip.)
Bubblegum eh? Which breeder? :30:
I am a lover of the TH seeds gear.

This strain yields solid sticky sweet smelling buds that when cured properly taste and smell like its name.:yahoo:
IMO If yields are important to you, keep her around.

So about a month ago I took 25 cuttings and attempted cloning for the first time in my life ... Needless to say I don't think I was completely successful.... All of my clones have this crazy root ball thing going on instead of actual roots pooping out of the rock wool .... My conclusion on this is that I kept the rockwool too moist and therefore the roots didn't need to go anywhere .... Most of the clones that I took have shown new growth and seem to be surviving.... So instead of trashing all my mishap cutting I have decided to conduct a bit of an experiment... I removed the cuttings very carefully from the rockwool cubes and put them in hempy 2 liters to see if I can get the "rootball" to pop roots .... I will be feeding them ph water for a few days to see if they survive the "transplant" and then start feeding light nutes along with some orca ... Hopefully the added aeration of the hempy pots will promote root growth.... We will see I suppose.... Figured I'd share
