    Hey there! You got some happy little girly frills popping up! Fancy!
    I just love how clean your environment is; geez it's a beautiful thing to see. Back in my consulting days 80% of it was like, "y'all know you need to like, mop and vacuum in here, right?" Lol ok I'm gonna put on my sunglasses n go back and stare at your shiny white plastic some more : )

    Three days later. Stretch is on. Little puffs of white hairs are forming and stacking very well.

    Day 14 of 12/12.
    Good growth, managing the stretch well. Im adding more bloom nutes little by little but keeping the nitrogen at an elevated level for another 7 days.
    They are drinking about 3 gallons a day. Ph has been very stable around the 6.0 mark and ppms are up to 1350. A little higher than intended but im not seeing any burnt tips or curling. Im adding back in plain ph'ed water to get the ppm back down to 1200. Shouldnt take long due to their rapid consumption rate.
    My kind led is gone, got rid of it 3 days ago. I have been running just the 2 sp250s since then. I thought the light disparity would cause a mass of stretching but so far the little leds are keeping them very happy. The temps have dropped almost 9 degrees on average down to 73f avg. I didnt realize how much heat the kind led was putting out. I have a spider farmer sf4000 coming today. I will post unboxing pics if anyone wants to check it out.
    So far so good. I dont see any signs of pests or deficiencies/ stressors. After day 28 i will clean out the under screen again. There is almost no light past the canopy and anything under there is a waste of resources.
    With the sf4000 and mars leds that puts my consumption up to 960 watts.....lets see if i can hit the 1g per watt threshold! 20191029_114757.jpg 20191029_114800.jpg 20191029_114810.jpg 20191029_114814.jpg 20191029_114817.jpg 20191029_114827.jpg 20191029_114927.jpg

    Beautiful canopy spread. I'm in awe. This is a picture perfect example of the technique! They look so perky and happy

    Spiderfarmer sf 4000 is in place! I was going to wait until the next round to change lights, but someone wanted my old light and it almost completely paid for this new one.
    Good blye blurple light, thanks for your hard work. Good luck to the young man in canada who ended up with it.
    This new one is BRIGHT! Its very clean white light. I needed sunglasses to finish rearranging my sp250s. I have amazingly even coverage of the canopy.
    The light is 22 inches from the tops. Lets hope its not too close.
    I do believe in a 4x4 this would be all the light one would need. 20191029_170001.jpg 20191029_170029.jpg 20191029_170151.jpg 20191029_170224.jpg 20191029_172405.jpg 20191029_172409.jpg

    Actually I'm a quasi-newbie, trying to maximize my few resources to create canna for my hubs cancer.
    I was trying to figure out how many plants you had in the space, and then what I would have to
    do, to do something similar with that nice of a result. I need to do mostly autos at the moment to get
    the ball rolling.

    3 plants. I will do 6 next time. I use a trellis net to grow horizontally until i have a full canopy. Then i turn the lights to 12 hrs. You could trellis a auto to some degree. There are grows on the interwebs like that. Sorry to hear about the diagnosis. I know and understand the feeling of wanting to do something to help. I give all my edibles away to family who need them. If you read the first page of this journal i gives a good idea of how to start.
