Thanks @Backlipslide, I'm expecting it to take about 9-10 weeks being a mostly sativa hybrid.

Also I plan on documenting the good, the bad and the ugly of this grow weekly or possibly twice a week, so if you stick around you'll see the end result :smokin2:
I like the Clint Eastwood quote :) I’m big into western flicks... anyways, your grow is going amazing my man. Doesn’t look like you need any advice so I’m just gonna pop a squat and enjoy the show. :popcorn:

It usually takes awhile for the pistils to start showing. It can be different for every strain though. My indices flower fast and my sativas seem like they take forever lol I think you said it’s sativa dominant so that’s probably what’s going on here. Just be patient and it’ll pay off friend.

I appreciate it big time, enjoy the show and feel free to join in again anytime.

60% sativa but I'm hoping to see some in week 2 *fingers crossed*

Week 2 Goals
  1. Calibrate meters
  2. Bring ppm up to 750 ( 1.5 e.c )
  3. Switch to high pressure sodium bulb once pistols are spotted
  4. Attempt to clone for the third and final time
Goal 4 - Cloning

After two failed attempts at cloning this strain I would like to discuss my plan, which is to presoak rockwool at 300ppm ( 0.6 e.c ) 5.7 ph for 24 hours using:

Advanced Nutrients Grow, Micro, BloomAdvanced Nutrients B-52Advanced Nutrients NirvanaAdvanced Nutrients Voodoo Juice
0.5 ml/L0.5 ml/L0.5 ml/L0.5 ml/L

Cut clone at a 45 below the second node, dip into Stim-Root Gel, then into Wallace Organic Wonder Mycorrhizal Fungi powder and then placed inside the rockwool cube.

After that it's placed under a 2' t5ho mounted on the top of the 10" x 20" dome, does anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking I should get a heat-mat and a controller.

After you cut cuttings off the plant, stick them in water. After a while, cut the 45 tip on the bottom of the stem. Then scrap the membrane on the bottom of the stem leading up to the 45, doing so, gives your clone an easier chance at rooting at a faster rate. I’m no professional at cloning, but I do know that.

Thanks, what you mentioned is my usual technique but I only leave it in the water long enough to finish cutting the rest. So this time I think I'll leave it in the water for longer and scrap the stem less since I had deep grooves of stem rot instead of roots :(
