Been working too much. Finishing up a 90 hour work week. Should be back to normal next week. :lot-o-toke:

Okay, so quick update.

Flowering day 32. Sadly the hermy did pollinate some of the tent, and have found some seeded buds. All I got right now so finishing it along. Can always make concentrates. :confused:

About 5 weeks into veg for the white widow and gelato. I did top them a week ago.

Have auto seeds coming to turn the left tent into an auto tent mainly. Still thinking if I want to keep a photo grow each time or just do all autos for simplicity. Have things kinda set up. Waiting on a 450w Samsung board to help light the right side of the auto tent.

Also, due to nutrient burn through my sloppy use of soil initially I have soil made from vermilicite, perlite, and composted soil mainly. Was going for low nutrient soil since I screwed my plants up initially with hot soil. Learning fast though.

Plan on being a lot more thorough on documenting when I have everything in auto pilot.

Sorry to hear that. Make sure when you’re done with the grow you give everything a good wash down to get any pollen. You wouldn’t want to ruin those autos you have coming.

Did you get the new board from a sponsor here or from China or...?

Will do on wiping things down.

Got a spyderfarmer equivalent from alibaba. Should be here in a week. If its good quality and is a true samsung board and such then I'll get another to replace my lower quality ones and set those up for seedlings and veg.

Nice, I went with Kingbrite for my current tent, no complaints yet. Don’t get me wrong the sponsors here are absolutely great and if I felt like spending the extra cash for an equivalent light or similar (in my eyes) I would do it in a heartbeat but since I squeak when I walk, I went with what I have now. If the results are there after this grow, I’ll go with them for my other two tents I’m equipping this fall.

Just got the light and it looks exactly the same as the other Samsung board I have. So, I'll probably get another if everything goes well. Only $270 shipped in 10 business days. Can't complain, since it's the equivalent of the spiderfarmer sf4000 one.

Been lazy on this lately. Still working on my house and just got done with about 200 hours in 2 weeks at work.

Two of the flowering plants I decided to chop. It was only 7 weeks of flower, but because of being seeded it looks like they ended faster. Here are some mediocre pics getting a jewelers loop Monday. They looked okay and seemed to have around 20-30% amber trichomes.

I'll post picks of the ones I originally wanted to follow through flower, I just flipped them Wednesday, but are significantly more healthy than I ever got these ones. The 40 day veg growth ended up out growing the bag seed before I even flipped them to flower. I also topped them two different times and have high air flow to promote strong stem growth. Still have them in the auto tent while the photo tent is finishing the last 2 weeks on the remaining two.

I have finally gotten my auto stuff and have gotten a 100% germination rate on:

4 sweet seed auto mix
4 pure red CBD from sweet seeds
5 purple lemonade from fast buds.

I have a separate germination tent now to start the first 2-3 weeks of the autoflowers before being transplanted to the final pot.

Still deciding on about 2 or so more

My full order:

Sweet Mix Auto Feminised Seeds sweet seeds - 10
Red Pure CBD Auto Feminised Seeds sweet seeds - 7
Seedsman Amnesia Auto - 9
Seedsman Blueberry Auto - 9
Purple Lemonade Auto Feminised Seeds Fastbuds - 8
Wedding Cheesecake Auto Feminised Seeds Fastbuds - 3
Girl Scout Cookies Auto Feminised Seeds Fastbuds - 3
Blue Dream' Auto Feminised Seeds Fastbuds - 3
LSD-25 Auto Feminised Seeds Fastbuds - 3
Pineapple Express Auto Feminised Seeds Fastbuds - 3
Dark Devil Auto Feminised Seeds Sweet Seeds - 4
Gorilla Girl XL Auto Feminised Seeds Sweet Seeds - 4
Red Poison Auto Feminised Seeds Sweet Seeds - 4
Automatik Collection #2 Auto Feminised Seeds 00 Seeds - 6

Plus a ton of other sample freebie auto and photo seeds.

Been a long time since I posted, but finally have things cruising along better.

Auto tent:
Germinated 6/18/2020
5 purple lemonade from fast buds

Germinated 6/21/2020
4 CBD red from sweet seeds
4 random seeds from sweet seeds

Germinated 7/3/2020
1 LSD-25 from fast buds.
1 Wedding cheese cake from Fast buds
1 dark devil from sweet seeds
1 red poison from sweet seeds

The photo period tent:
Germinated 5/3/2020
Start of flowering 6/26/2020
3 white widow from crop king seeds (front)
2 Gelato from crop king seeds (back)

I'll be more detailed on the follow up for these ones, but everything is healthy right now. There are a few bad lower leafs on the auto flowers from when I let them get root locked for a day or 2.

If anyone wants go follow any of these I can be more detailed on individual plants.

Currently use 25% perlite 25% vermiculite and 50% miracle grow moisture control recollected from prior growing plants.

Feed using mega crop all in one.

Use blue/red spectrumlight and quantum boards. Right now due to heat i have the 633watt blue/red lights set on bloom(red) setting, but there is 480watts of quantum board with it. Still leaving the 50 watts/sqft of led in the photo tent. The autos have a 24 hour light schedule using a 450 watt, a 75 watt and a 100 watt quantum board. This is about 45 watts/sqft of led in the auto tent.

The gelato and white widow are doing well. Still have about 2-3 weeks left in flower.

The autoflowers I kept in small pots and got to about 1-2 feet each. The pink lemonade from fast buds is flowering and bulking up fast.

Plan on getting final results and weights, but just every now and again posting pictures and updates.

Should have everything done and cleared out by the end of August.

Going to move to just running 4 main photo plants in a 4×8 tent. Going to run a gelato and white widow from crop king seeds, and holy punch and super silver haze from greenhouse seed co. Should be easier to follow.

Those Greenhouse seeds will treat you well. Pennywise and PCAddict (I think one or two other's are as well just can't recall who) are running GH's Neville's Haze right now. They've been talking about running it on 11/13 right from the start to keep them from growing out of control, along with supercropping.

I hope so. I have 23 different plants going right now and in a few weeks should be down to just the 4 new ones. they are all doing well, just no time to document anything. I got a little too excited from my orders coming in. 4 plants should be easier to deal with. The bigger the better. Would be cool to fill 48 square feet with 4 plants.

Tons of stuff, but have been lazy with how much work it is to trim and such. Got most cut down between 8.5-9 weeks flowering. A few still need some time. Cut down 3 purple lemonades that dried in 7 days and ended with ~170 grams. Gave away 54 grams of it to a friend.

Will take some better pictures and final weights when stuff is dry.

Guessing my final weight between all 17 plants will be -30oz of good flower and 15oz of trim and larf. Not bad for a first grow.

Will be lowering my output. Tons of work and I only smoke like an oz a month. :lot-o-toke:
