    hi weedtastic. good haul even with your lost colas.

    Sounds like you have the plan in hand for your next grow. Only one thing I might change, with my limited experience. I would supercrop with at least 2 weeks left. give those hormones a chance to open some new bud sites after healing before you flower them. Or is 1 week long enough? you've done it more than I have and things happen faster under the hot lights. Just tossing an idea out there.

    ^^^^^^^Leds talkin,lol
    edit:

    I just took another look at a couple of your early pages. only takes a week doesn't it ("ok update time its only been 5 days since i last posted but the difference 5 days make wow ")..heheh. I really enjoyed following this grow weedtastic, hope you have another great one.

    I seemed to get a lot of new sites when I supercropped but I also gave them a 1/2 shot of Miracle Grow at the same time, because growth had slowed. That was before I had the Botanicare veg solution.

    lol 6 days doesn't make much difference with 90w led, at least on finishing plants.

    Got them dry enough to take plain water again tho. Should at least be flushed and clear of any chem taste. I don't notice it on the early trim now that it's cured a bit. Gonna chop some time soon, I'll get a pic or two before I finish them off.

    hi weedtastic
    One way or the other you are gonna have a load of plants to play with, should be fun. Longer veg time can't hurt. You are getting anxious to get flowering again tho aren't you? Hell, I am and I'm not even finished yet,lol.
    You might find that you have to expand your FLOWER room once they start to take off,heheh. Such a terrible problem to have,lol.

    I know this much for sure, I'm glad that you introduced me to supercropping because, along with LST, my biggest clone is loading up with bud sites. She was slowed right down until I supercropped all the tips and top, now loads of new growth especially in the center. thanks my friend.

    Scoped both plants thoroughly this afternoon and now seeing the difference as the trichs start to get cloudy. No amber yet except for the odd damaged trich. I'm gonna take the Big Bud down soon, when close to 100% milky and let the Afi go half amber to see if it's close to the strain I hoped for in the first place. Won't be more than a short 7 grams or so on the Afi but still probably twice what was there after the early trim.

    Trying to decide whether to repot with some sand or perlite to speed up the wet/dry cycle before I flower. I sure don't want to do that again while flowering and the plants will be easier to handle when smaller.

    Thanks for the +rep

    I won't have enough trim to make any hash but still have a good 1/2 oz of Afi hash to keep me company. No I don't think you mentioned that you made hash.....ummmm finger hash from the trimming?? I remember reading that seems to me. I bet it was some potent jam, heheh.
    yeah they've had a good flush and an extra watering so should be smoother than the early Afi which is improving with cure.
    I'm really wanting to get some new plants in flower,lol. Don't want to rush the last few days to finish tho.

    It was the head buzz driving you to get things done. Now you gotta find the most amber trichs on your dry buds and smoke that to mellow you out until you get to flower again,lol.
    road trip tomorrow for a bag of perlite, gotta do it now so there'll be time for recovery. Got Super Thrive to help with any transplant shock.

    yep I believe I need to load up on perlite to get the dry cycle tuned up a little, should help with a few extra feedings squeezed in.

    What size are your flowering pots? 5L or bigger? lol I seem to be having some short term memory issues tonight..

    Re: weedtastics white russian soil grow

    hi mmmmick i start out in 3 inch x 3 inch pots 2 weeks later repot into 5 inch pots then 2 weeks later 5 ltr pots then final pot is about 12 ltre althou my monster plant last time round was planted in a 25 litre pot as i had the room for it...i dont now however...i believe in doing so many repots and placing my pot to be transfered into the bigger pot so to make a template for it and then carefully adding the soil down the sides of the new pot after new plant is put in there so soon as the roots grow any further they hit the new soil giving it extra nutes so i have no need to add nutes till around week 7/8 depending on how brave i feel lol also it helps me to introduce low levels of nutes to start and i can then still max out before harvest hope this helps....short term memory loss my ass..........to heavily stoned on your new bud imo lol.........be lucky weedtastic
