I'm the worst mom....not really, but I have probably taken more pics of my plants then my kids this year. So I can't blame you. They are naturally photogenic after all.

Hellloooooo and happy Saturday !! Hope everyone is feeling well and enjoying their time in the garden! I know I’m excited today going to start tying down my EM2! She’s done so amazing after being topped on Monday this week and after her last training session she bounced back in less than an hour!8562FB15-75A8-4F75-AC6B-151FFB346E06.jpeg This plant is really impressing me! It started out with the strange 3rd starting leaf but had turned into a beautiful tight plant!! I’ll take some updated tent photos this morning when I get home and post some pictures of the training and tying down of the EM2 as well!! Woohoo :yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo:I’m so excited with how the garden is going !! Having such a great time with these girls can’t wait to see their beautiful flowers !!

:slide::slide:Awesome sauce ! :slide::slide:

Nice one. Looks like you've got some good growth on those girls. They shall reward you nicely my friend.
They are week 4 day 6 today and im anticipating them to start prelfowers by end of next week and then I can start introducing some bloom nutes! Until now I’ve only done veg nutes wanted to get them as big as I can before the burst into flower mode!!

My girls are about 3 weeks old now Id say. They're not long from flower i dont think I can see the tips starting to bunch up a bit especially on my blue dream. Cant wait!!

Hello and good evening everybody !! As promised I have gathered some pictures of the tent this evening after training EM2 this morning. Decided to experiment with EM2 from the beginning so a topping on Monday this week did it wonders ! Super healthy growth all around this morning I did a bend and tie down! Look at the rebound only 3hrs later !!

Hello and good morning everyone !!
Another Monday has come our way and I just wanted to do a quick tent update ! So last week I installed an AC unit in the room where the tent is! It helped bring the tent from 82-83’F down to 77-79’F during the day and from 76-78’F down to 69-70’F at night time!! The addition of the AC was well worth the effort to put it in! I skipped feeding day yesterday wanted to let the girls get a bit dryer!! Feed today is a must as all the girls are hungry :popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::popcorn::popcorn:

I’ll get some updated photos on here later today once I’m home.

Happy Monday !

Hello all!

As promised here are some updated photos today ! I got all the girls fed this afternoon instead of yesterday just wanted to let them get a bit more hungry!! They have some beautiful preflowers starting on the WHITEWIDOWS 1/2 EM1 is coming along right behind them. EM2 is getting daily training and got fed today as well. Here is EM2 after training today!

Feeding:
10ml/g of Veg nutes Sensi Grow A+B
5ml/g of CalMag

The 3 big girls got 2.5L of feed water pHed to 6.3
EM2 got 1L of feed water pHed to 6.3

Slight bending to all bigger girls and exposing those lower tops that are growing beautifully and wanting more light! Next feed I am introducing 1/4 bloom nutes to mix and dropping veg nutes down to 1/4 strength.

They will be going into week6 next week and from the looks of it will be going into full flower!! If anyone has thoughts on this if I should approach it differently that would be great! (Maybe stop veg nutes entirely before introducing bloom nutes?).

Also if I could get some opinions on how close I am to actually starting true flowers ?! Stretch has slowed down a bit that I can tell but may pick up after today’s feeding?
Here’s a close up of all the tops of the girls

Any and all input is great ! Thank you!

All looking good.. except maybe early miss in the bottom right?

Don't know the specifics of your nute brand in regards to whether vege and bloom nutes can be mixed. Though my way of think is either one or the other, as you dont really know how the vege and bloom are interacting when mixed and what resulting NPK ratio you would end up with.

Your girls look ready for bloom (though I've only grown photo so it may differ slightly for autos) do you have a meter that shows ppm of your nute mix? I ran around 1000-1100 during flower last run with a little bit of nute burn. Though plenty of people on this site run a less is more approach?

Good luck with rest of grow... You've got me thinking where can I squeeze a few autos in haha

Hey @Hootenanny ! Thanks for popping by, I’m running AN sensi line grow A+B and bloom A+B. Also a CalMag and voodoo juice.

I have been running CalMag and light veg nutes since the beginning and voodoo juice until week 3. I have read most autos will start truly flowering around 5-6weeks. As my 3 big girls are week5 this week I was planning on doing the switch! I see your point on the mismatched NPK ratios of mixing nutes.. valid point! I have kept my feeding light through veg only around 1/4 strength until this last feeding at 1/2 strength.

As for the small Early Miss she’s about 13 days behind the other girls she has been undergoing some training and a topping. All other girls just slight bending and LST.

The 3 girls showing their preflowers are doing great though!!
