My mothers are doing pretty good. I really raped the back one for clones(on the left). She was short. Went out of town for a couple days. When I came home she was just as tall as the others again. She seems to have a lot more indica traits in her. A new journey begins my friends!

I laid off the nutes for my mothers. Had just a touch of burn and I want them to be focusing on rooting when I clone next time instead of growing. I flushed good and will clone in a week or so after another flush. I did order a cloning setup with rockwool and a heating pad. They hillbilly stuff works, but I want to be more streamlined and less cluttered. Does that make sense? It is a work in progress to say the least. Not in a hurry.

Absolutely man!:headbanger:

Love the new dp!
I keep changing things, but since I did so well on my first grow I figured why not do even better? I now know I have the patience and every ones advice. I found it to be addictive and rewarding. I could grow orchids, but I am a rebel and like growing friends more than any others. I am the only one ever to see my buddies operation. Not that makes me a big shot...but it is nice to have friends you trust and that also trust and respect you and are so willing to help you. He has my house keys and I have his so if either of us need a "babysitter" on a vacation we have one.

I got my rockwool cloning enclosure today. Soaked the rockwool, took my clippings and have eight in it now. I am almost afraid to post this, because I may fail. But I figure if i do fail it would be a lesson for someone else of what not to do...lol. I have the heating pad under the setup and have plenty of humidity. I am using an led auquarium light with some blue for the lighting since I used the same light before and have have good luck in just plain perlite. After about 10 days I plan to throw in some perlite under the cubes with a touch of peroxide to stem algae growth and see what happens.

Fixing to put these babies to bloom. I did not do much training but am gonna train my clones hard when the time comes. Have got the fimming down, but gonna try my hand at supercropping on a few till i get it down. They are doing good in the chamber. Will begin to harden them off a little in a couple days. I started using a notebook to log everything because my mind is full of worthless stuff and I can get sidetracked easily..lol. Having multiple tents made my life sooo much easier!!!!!!

Super cropping is easy bro! But you definitely need to get a feel for it. Best thing for that, is practice. Bend a few branches, almost to the point of snapping. It will be bent over, looking lifeless. Within 24 hours they will fix their posture and start praying to the light again.

You want to create a nice heathy knuckle! :thumb:

The cloner is amazing. Glad I got it and went to the rockwool to do it. It has been 6 days and they are looking just great!!. I only have three in bloom right now, but, like I said, have revamped. As long as I can clone I will be set up good in a little time. I knew better than to try to cram too many clones in at one time and risk mold problems. So far so good I guess!! And for shits and grins, a shot from the pontoon on the lake! Was a great day out there!

That’s great about super cropping! It’s easy to do, but you def need to get a feel for it. Good job man!

Nice buy with the boat!!

I’ve got a 1974 14’ fibreglass Polaris traveller, with a 55 evinrude motor on it.

Didn’t get it out the last two years. My daughter is exactly 2.5 and I wonder why I haven’t got it out in that long lol

Nice buy with your boat man!

Nice pontoon! That’s my goal! Sell this boat eventually and buy a 16’ pontoon boat! :thumb:

Plants are looking great man!

Snapped these right after the lights went out for the night. Plenty of colas and seeing some pistils. I will throw in a pic of my clones, which are hardening off and looking good. Ordered two more 1000 watt eq led lights tonight and, of course, more ratcheting light hangers. First time I have tried rockwool cloning and I lIKE it!! The only issue I had was that the heating pad made all the water evaporate to the top of the chamber, making it hard to keep the cubes and the perlite moist. I finally turned if off and went from there and they seem good. Oh, and I ditched the led tube and went to cfls for them. Expected more roots at 14 days, but they are standing tall and thriving.

Sorry, no pics tonight. Tore off a roof with my buddy tonite....about worn out. He just came home from Germany after being there 37 years. Helping him get the old homestead up to par. Anyway, got my two 1000 watt equivilent lights today for the veg tent. (Their "descreet" shipping consisted of two boxes that had big black letters on the box that said LED Grow light system..lol)...Then I answer the cell..my buddy has 12 plants he cloned he wants to drop off. I am like HELL yes! Six White Widow and six Northern Lights. How could I say no?? I love good people!!

Got my new lights on the veg tent set up...they came with only one carabiner clip, so they would spin around. I had extras, so I used two hangers per light and two carabiners so they would be steady. So I am ready for my clones and my free clones from my friend in the am. Crappy pic, but to tired to break out the sony camera..lol
