    Re: First Grow Guidance: 400w MH/600w HPS & Soil

    Just wanted to post a quick pic of all the plants my flowering area.

    I just hung some mylar from the ceiling by folding and taping the ends and inserting a 5' PVC pipe, like a curtain rod through a curtain. It's basically 4 mylar curtains forming a box with dimensions of 5x5x8. It's open at the top & bottom to allow air circulation and you can see there's a HVAC duct at the very top to bring in air/cool/heat as needed. I have a 600w High Output Growbright HPS bulb in a fairly large open hood. I keep a 6" fan blowing under the light for better circulation and help with cooling.

    This pic was taken through the translucent mylar...



    There's 5 plants in there at the moment. The four I've posted pix of in this thread and a backup that I had. I decided to put her, Olive Oil (tall and skinny), in the middle. She's just finishing her stretch and I'm hoping she'll give me a few more nice bonus buds in this grow.

    I also had to put 4 CFLs around the top of Miss Burley to give her some light to her main cola. I don't wanna raise my HID light any higher.

    I got 'em packed in there high & tight, hoping for a good yield from a single 600w bulb.

    Thanks for props y'all and thx for fixing those thumbnails 420. I posted those before I realized I could just embed the full size images.

    This is day 41 and I'm gonna hold out as long as I can but I'm nearly outta smoke and I may have to take one soon to get some meds. One looks to be fading fast anyway so sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

    Yeah, it's worked out pretty good so far. I'm gonna try some vertical lighting in there at some point.

    I snapped a couple of more pix of some maturing buds just before lights out tonight and I wanted to post them. They're starting to look pretty wicked.






    They're staring to get real stanky too! I remember the buds these seeds came from and they had just a touch of a skunky smell and flavor.

    Kinda sweet & skunky, if you know what I mean.

    Well, I had to flush one of the 5 plants, Fast Betty. She was really starting to fade and the last emergency flush didn't help.

    She showed a lot of potential until disaster stuck. I'll get something decent off her though and considering I have nothing, it will be welcomed. I figure I'll get a chance to wok on my harvesting and curing technique. lol

    Oh yeah, and my smoking technique too!

    Here's some pix of the poor baby. Just a couple of more weeks and those buds would have tightened up. Dang!!





    I flushed today and plan on chopping in 3 more days. What do y'all think?

    The good news is that I still have four more in the flow area that're doing a lot better than Fast Betty. My favorite is Sheena of the Jungle. She is doing well and her buds are still swelling, getting very tight and frosty. She may be the best of this crop. She will be ready for harvest next and should be good to go in another 2 weeks (which will be 60 days flowering).

    Plant 3 (Pokeymom) stopped growing for awhile but she is back to sucking up water and growing again. She looks good and will be ready around the same time as Sheena, but may end up with a little smaller buds.

    Ms. Burley is mega-huge with a giant 2.5' main cola and insanely long and bud riddled secondary colas. The top tip is now between the floor joists and she's about 8.5' including the bucket. She is also extremely resilient, green and healthy from top to bottom and I expect her to produce massive quantities of buds. She's very slow, but she's methodical and I have no idea how long it might take her to mature. Hopefully, she's stopped growing vertically though.

    Pix of her and the other plants soon

    Harry... beautiful looking plant, damn shame you may have to chop her early. Do ya think you can try like a 1/2 strength seaweed extract with the next watering and see if she perks up? She looks amazing now and it would be nice to see her finish if possible :-) Can't wait to see the pictures of the other plants! Grate grow!

    Yeah Be IRIE. I'm totally amazed that the one plant has grown from ~24" to 8'5" in 46 days. That is a quadruple stretch!! I have a mother plant that came from a 1st generation clone of Ms Burley. If she one comes in like I'm hoping for, maybe I'll do an entire grow with her clones. Lol. Growing four 8 footers might be fun.

    Then again, maybe not!

    That is kinda what I was wondering and asking about. I guess I'm afraid that if I wait too long, she'll just go down hill and lose something. Looking at the pix, you can see that most of the fans are dead or dying. Does it look to y'all like it has any life left in it?

    If y'all think it can go longer without damage, I'll let it go...

    Thanks for the help!!
