Well, its day 30 now and time to flip the switch. :slide:
Quite a different grow to the last one. I got bored watering by hand and have set up a run to waste drip system. Ideally I wanted to use these horseshoe sprayer things I bought, but they where too big for my pots. So Instead I set up this primitive but hopefully effective drip. Put 5 x 4lph dripper's in each pot and it run's for 20 mins at wake up - Seems to be working good. Have topped the plants above 2nd node as in Uncle Ben's Topping guide, hopefully this means I get 4 main buds. Away for 8 days now, so we;ll see if the drip holds the pace! The Cole Train on the left has been a big yellow, I've flushed and hopefully an increase in nutes will sort her out

Flower Day 8

Had to take a few drastic measures last night. After 8 days away with the plants on automatic system I came back to a pretty sick looking Cole Train





Seem to have a nute lockout (not sure which...maybe Cal-Mag?) First I gave the plant a good flush. Still wasn't right the next night and I also noticed it wasn't draining very well. So I took the drastic step of repotting it. Put a good layer of hydron clay pebbles in the bottom to assist drainage. I then gave it a good feed, it seemed to be draining much better, so hopefully she'll look good when I see her in the morning. She also got a wee bit close to the lamp while I wasn't here to move it. Hopefully she'll recover ok! :peace:

EC 2.2 PH 5.6

>3ml/lt canna coco A+B
1.5ml/lt PK 13/14
tiny amount of epsom salts (trying to get the coletrain to "green up")

Well girls are doing away just fine. Stretching seems to have slowed right down, so hopefully the buds are on their way! ;)

Cole Train (right plant) is looking a wee bit shabby, have tried to please here, but she's just a high maintenance lady! She's looking not too bad at the moment. so hopefully she'll make some ok buds. The blue cheese is looking real nice...she's short but strong with some huge leaves and is loving the high EC at the moment.

Day 45 Flower

EC 2.2 PH5.6


Had a bit of a disaster with the blue cheese. Came home after a few days away to this!



Seems my hose connection to the plant had come loose and she never had any feed or water for 3 day :17: Gave her a good feed :MoreNutes: and a couple of days later she is looking like this



Probably stressed her a good bit, but after removing a few crispy leaves she's not too bad. Unfortunately I have to chop in 2 weeks, so hopefully she puts on a bit of weight! As for the cole train, she is a real fussy bitch and not sure if she works in my setup....tried to please here, but she looks an off green colour with leaves curling length ways, and generally just an ugly girl! She is putting on the weight though and I expect some okay bud. Not quite as smooth a grow as last time, but I am dealing with a different setup and new strains. Heres some more pics

Coletrain


they are a sorry looking pair at the moment!


and the clones, 1 of each





Nice work you do.
:439::bravo:
Thanks coco Joe...that means a lot coming from you!:439:

Flower Day 62

Well, another disaster...my light timer failed at about 7 weeks into flowering and shone continuously for 4 day, pretty much putting the ladies back into a veg state :yikes:
The result is that the Cole train took off on a stretch and the blue cheese just stressed out a bit! Anyway they have been back in flowering for over a week and seem to be putting a little weight on, but have slowed right down :11:

Alas, they are to be cut down in 2 days after a dark spell. I think I might get a little bit of ok bud, but its mostly going into the bubble bags :lot-o-toke:

Here some trichs...looking clear/cloudy...doesn't matter...they're getting the chop! Hard lessons learned.....one being don't buy a cheapo light timer!!!

9.5 weeks eh thats pretty slow flowering right, those buds should be way bigger shouldnt they at 9.5 weeks?
Hey MilkMan ....they should be way bigger. :8: ...They looked like that around week six. The light cycle was interrupted for about 4-5 days. I'd say that put them back into veg.....and of course they got fully dehydrated too.....pretty poor grow really! Looking forward to clearing this mess up and getting the Strawberry cough & SLH on the go!:rollit:

Shame you had to cut them down before they were ready.
 
Gutted. Good job on cutting that mess down! Good thing you didnt waste any more time on it! An oz is an Oz and its growing the next oz's that matters.

Im finished growing now, I'll post links in my posts to new grows i've done. SLH is about to be done.
