    YES! Never remove a leaf that can be moved instead.

    I agree ... pulling leaves to get more light in, for me has only resulted in smaller buds where i took the leaf feeding the bud.
    Plants look super good! Nice and bushy

    Thanks for the advice TS & Tunes, I really appreciate it and will take it to heart!

    So far this has been a great journey to take. I think I may have found a new hobby actually. I really like sitting with the plants and admiring my handy work. I may be a little off, but who ain't, 'eh?

    Thanks for the replies jordo and cigo!

    At the risk of sounding really dumb...is it possible to over water in hydro?

    ...Well...

    If the roots are sitting in the solution and the solution's O2 level drops too low you might see like symptoms.

    With enough O2 in the solution, no, the roots can spend their entire lives in it.

    Thanks for the clarification TS. Actually there was a period of a few hours where the O2 pump line became disconnected. I was lucky to catch it when I did and plugged it back in!

    Re: First time grower, Bloombox, what do you experts think?

    It's update time again....


    Mama at about 8 weeks...


    White Widow after 5 full weeks in flower...


    White Castle after 5 full weeks as well...

    Judging from the looks of those buds, can anybody give me a best guesstimate as to when these ladies are likely to be done? My gut is telling me at least another 5 weeks, but I don't really have anything concrete to base that on. I ask mainly because I'm going to have to get some clones going at some point and assume that that will take about 2-3 weeks according to the BCNL method.

    Anyhow, overall, I'm thinking so far, so good! What say you?

    Looking good kruizin.
    I'd say 4weeks is good. If you going to take clone from the flowering plant the sooner the better. It's better to take clones in veg and take them from a lower branch.

    Thanks for you input Pan!

    I'll be taking the clones off of mama in about a week then and from the lower branches.

    Damn, I really nervous about this clone thing, but so far everything has gone relatively smoothly.
