Thanks, Al. And back atcha. I did have a good day. Got the ladies topped and LST’d. I have no idea what I’m doing but I’m acting as if I do. I’m in for the journey, not the destination...oh who am I kidding? I’m in for those stanky buds. I just hope I didn’t kill the crop. Roll Tide, my friend.

Eek! I've been down the past week. How are they today? (And Roll Tide!)

That was a bit of hyperbole, I guess. I mean that I just topped them about 30 minutes ago. Everything seemed to go okay but we’ll see. I’ll have some pictures up in the morning. Get some rest. I know that you and @Tangled can always use a little more rest.

Your girls are going to be great. I'll be looking for those pics as soon as I can. Friday's always a long day for me.

Good morning, all. Yesterday was topping day, and I think that it went okay. I peeked in on them this morning and I think that they are already filling in some. After I topped them, I started training them a bit, using wire out of some 110V Romex that I had laying around. I think that I'll probably introduce some light nutrients over the weekend. I'd like to get these ladies nearly popping at the seams before I up pot them into their final 7 gallon smart pots. Here are some before and after pictures.

Hey FEF, looking good - i'd get those plants into their new pots asap though - they're getting big now and would benefit from some extra root space right about now :yummy:

Good morning, all. I hope that everyone enjoyed their weekend. My weekend was enjoyable and productive. After topping the ladies on Thursday, I was able to get them up-potted on Saturday and I introduced some light nutrients to them, yesterday. I think that the ladies have responded well, to both.

You ain't kidding, Irie! This is what I saw on Saturday morning. I probably should have up-potted about a week ago but the simple truth is that I have no idea what I'm doing. Frankly, I'm just lucky I haven't accidentally caught all three on fire. Also, my attention span lags behind my movements (especially after a couple of laps around Reefer Park, if you know what I mean), so I forgot to get a shot of JH #3's restricted roots, but you get the idea...

Judging from the root ball, it looks like I need to revisit @Emilya 's watering tutorial. There aren't many lateral roots. It looks like they all took off, straight to the bottom.

Here's a picture of all three recovering from their traumatic morning. These ladies were little troopers.

Yesterday (Sunday), I broke out the PH pen and nutrients. I started with a gallon of Publix spring water (PH 6.7 and 16 PPM). I added 2 tsp of FF Grow Big and 1 tsp of FF Big Bloom. I then added 5ml of calmag and measured (PH 5.9 and 477 PPM). I ended up adding 12 drops of PH UP to settle on PH 6.3 and 489 PPM. As soon as the lights came on at noon, I split about 3/4 of a gallon between all three.

This morning before I left for work, I snapped these three pictures. I can tell that they have responded well to the transplant and they're loving that first taste of nutes.
