It's amazing what a few days of sunny skies will do for these plants! They don't seem to be doing anything under the CFL's at night, but here's what they looked like this morning:

Blueberry 1 at 36 days

AK-47 at 27 days

Blueberry 2 at 26 days with LST continuing

Still wondering if it's worth the nightly move into the shed for CFL augmentation. Anyone have a thought?

Another thing, turns out that Blueberry 1 looked thirsty last night, so I watered it with plain pH 6.2 water. Funny thing is that even though I water these plants with 6.2-6.4 water and the runoff is the same (measured with a digital tester), the soil always reads 7.0 with the soil meter probes. I'm not going to worry too much about it as long as everything looks ok, but it still seems odd to me.
when i use my probe it has to stay in the soil for a minute bc it says 7.0 just like yours then after a min or 2 in soil ill start getting readings of 6.5/6.4

I don't run LST on my photos because I can do all the fun high-stress stuff. I do spread them out with ties and supercropping, but I don't tie them that flat because I can let them get taller as the veg. I'd only do that on a photo if my tent was 2' tall :).

Yeah those probes are basically crap. I haven't used mine since I got my meters and now I don't even know where it is!

In case no one wants to re-read this journal from the start
well someone did! :love:
everyone was amazed at how high they got off my homegrown dope.
Isn’t that a great feeling?
I don't think I'll ever top an auto. I'm a member of the Our Lady Queen of LST!
How’s that working out? Pretty damn well I’d say! I’m still gonna top an auto. :3:

Loved your first journal Shed. I had so many quotes lined up and lost them all at about page 30 (doh!). Once again, it’s good for a newbie like me to be able to see that the people I look up to on this site were once, kinda, like me. :laugh: Thanks for putting it all out there - your first journal was packed with lots of great bookmarks for me! :thanks:

If I grew anything other than DDAs these days I still would :). But I try not to dissuade others from topping. So of course I'll be watching yours.:high-five:

I'm really glad there was helpful stuff and it was worth the read.
