    Thanks HP! Strawberry Fields may show up in a different sub forum. I'm having enough troubles that I'm not ready to play with it yet. The bag is still unopened.

    Thanks Lesso. I do believe that's been said before about not doing organic right, I just had to learn it for myself. Anyway, on with today's updates. I think I'm finally at the point where the spending stops on equipment! YAAAAAY :)
    I have a 4" inline fan, a booster w/195cfm, for veg exhaust now.It should remove the heat fast enough. I picked up the workings for tea buckets and my bubble cloner. I now have EM1 and a product called Dechlorinator. It says its for hydro when you cant make RO. The dude at the shop says it'll be fine to use in soil. Of course I will try it but with only one plant! Not crashing the garden over "oops's" anymore hopefully. I'd be really happy if the stuff works. Well, Ive got work to do.
    Oh, that 818 has been cured almost a month now and its really good. one bowl on 2 heads left me high af for 3 hours. If you grow it out and get a short girl that flowers pretty fast but doesnt yield heavy its probably going to be great. I think seedfindereu listed only 4 phenos. Very nice sweet taste and the headband high.
    Everything else is curing and I'm not picking at it until it's done. Maybe a little here and there :)

    Veg tent is now adequately vented and showing negative pressure. All together I'm pulling about 1000 Watts from the wall now. That's going to be my ceiling with the old wiring.
    If the need arises for ac or dehumidification I guess I'll be running a long *** extension cord from the other circuit. Everything is all in one room now so at least my environment will be consistent, mostly.
    The three girls in flower have maybe 5 weeks to go. It's going to be a light yield from them due to the stretch from the under powered tube I had before the panel I'm using now. But it'll be primo. The three seedlings took a little damage from the heat/cold issues but they're still looking good. They've hit the third true leaf node and in a day or so I'll begin the mainlining on them. There's so much space in flower at the moment. I'm planning to do some clone work this evening if I don't pass out.
    Began EM1 today with watering on everything. I didn't measure but each gallon got between 1 and 2 tablespoons. I'll be setting up the Grow and Bloom teas very soon as well. I'd like to use them next watering.
    I'm putting in 4ft stakes now. Veg is still looking rough but recovering.

    Veg tent took a big hit. Everything hurts. Seedlings are weeks behind. All three that were above soil are still alive but looking bad. Most of the clones withered and lost the majority of their leaves. The donors are much more established and are pulling through ok. I'm going to attempt to clone some of the newer growth at about mid way and start defoliation. Everything needs transplanted.
    On the bright side, these plants have been thoroughly stress tested. If this doesn't cause gender drift then I will chalk that up to good stability for breeding.
    Went through my jar and selected these 5 to germ. I've got the environment stable, minus humidity control. This is one rough "Beginning".

    Thanks HP, I appreciate the support!
    2/2 Trainwreck above ground
    2/3 Boss Hogg above ground
    1/3 Triple Lemon above ground
    Planted into rapid rooters and then potted to solo cups of FFOF. Watered with EM1.
    Added another new humidifier with fancy humidistat controls. Hoping to push back into the right vpd zone again!
    2 LSD and 1 boc clones chopped a few days ago. Roughly 1.5 ounces per lsd at 4' and 6 maristem (?). Boc has not been trimmed or weighed yet. Trim off the LSD was stellar. Boc looked even better at the chop. I'll get some pics at some point today.

    2 Obsoul33t Alien Sour Apple into paper towel and baggy just now.
    From SHN:

    Obsoul33t – Alien Sour Apple

    Sour Apple X Alien Tech

    50/50 Hybrid

    THC: 20% – 28%

    Alien Sour Apple is a strain created through a cross of the hugely popular Sour Apple x Alien Tech strains. It is infamous among collectors, and patients for its Granny Smith like flavor and smell. The bouquet is sweet, yet sour fruity apple with just a hint of earthy berry as the flowers are broken apart. The taste is of sour apple with a hint of sweetness and earth that intensifies as you continue to enjoy. This strain has long dense and super dense spade-shaped bright neon green flowers with a spattering of fiery orange hairs and a thick frosty coating of chunky over-sized milky white crystal trichomes.

    Boss Hogg from caliconnection.com
    Strain: Hybrid Indica/Sativa
    Lineage: Chem 4 x Chem 4 BX1
    Seeds: Fem
    Fem seeds- Chem 4 x Chem 4 BX1 RVSD

    we all know Trainwreck and if you've been following you know the Triple Lemon.

    Veg tent is nothing but problems lately. Now I've got fungus gnats and possibly thrip larvae. I had a good run of over a year with no pests. Introducing 209 to the watering schedule and will begin foliar sprays of Captain Jack's.
    The white bags are the Sunshine Daydream, a cherry OG and my surviving white strawberries cut. The three seed stock survived the nuke and are well placed for mainline training. They'll also give me good clone stock.
    The bubble cloner is now in use with some random cuts. Tea buckets live in the flower tent. I'm starting a batch tomorrow for veg.
    My lone flowering plant is Umbra's triple Lemon. Not pictured, but shown in the ofc.

    I'm down to the last nug of the second round LSD. That's a shame. No survivors.

    Update for records
    I filled up the bubble cloner with randomly selected cuts off everything. Fed both tents with respective teas, em1, liquid kelp and treated with 209 drench. No sign of any bugs! 1 little crawler yesterday. 1 Cherry OG clone snipped, dipped, placed into soil, watered with EM1 and Saran wrapped. Standing today @ 24 hrs. Seedlings showed slight light stress, moved them to lower shelf out of direct lighting, staggered on the cloner lid.
    I moved a transplanted White Strawberries over to flower just now. It received grow tea. It responded well to the dry amendment added when transplanted to 5 gallons. Did a little tying but the branches are supple. She's in good air circulation now. One triple Lemon reaching the end.
    Soon to be working with activated em1 thanks to education from the OFC.
    There's photos of Umbra's SSDD f2 side by side. Ones been topped for mainlining and the other was saved for oops factor. It'll be mainlined too. The top was placed into the bubble cloner about center.
    The red Solo cup is Umbra's Triple Lemon. Look at those fat little leaves reach! Different from her sister already.
    There's a shot of the clones and seedlings and the Cherry OG I stuck under Saran wrap way down on the bottom shelf. A small cut for what I'm use to but keef showed me how small his cuts are. Gotta try! My cuts are generally pretty big, I guess.
    There's a shot of the tea station. One of my buckets had a crack in it. I had to emergency set it into the bin and just left it there. It's working ok. The flower teas inside the same container. I go and stir it up with the air stones every so often. Tea stinks, plants like it so far. I added worm castings to the tea. I almost forgot.
    Then there's the flower. Not much happening right now. Triple Lemon on the right and a scraggly reviving white strawberry. I'm taking a guess but it's just starting to come back aggressively, good time to flip?

    Veg tent recovery update! :)
    So it's cramped in here at moment but things are progressing well with the extra attention. I've switched from 24hrs on to 18/6.
    1st I'm happy to say my BoC cut, which has tones of sweet bourbon and dank gas, is going to survive. I thought she was a goner, I was sad and she's been hidden. She's throwing nice healthy new growth now and she'll soon be chopped into clones, a few are already in the bubbler. I've been careful to pick at her as I don't want to damage any delicate starts.
    My Triple Lemon, Mozz and the revegged 818 are looking good again too.
    This afternoon's check of my germination box showed great results too. I moved it to a warmer area and was surprised with some seed that I thought weren't going to show, popping. 3 Alien Sour Apple and 1WSxLSD into soil and Saran wrapped.
    My cup tray is full of seedlings and starts. I'm pretty sure that Cherry OG cut I stuck in there is rooting already. It didn't wiggle when I jiggled. I think I like the Saran wrap. I snipped a tiny Mozz shoot and gave it another try.
    Oh and I'm giving two Pink Lady apple seeds a shot. Real apple seeds. They seemed like they were both ready when I came across them.

    More notes
    2 of 2 WS x LSD are in soil now.
    Both bananas are above ground.
    No ground broken on the ASA yet. I really hope at least one lives. I've had the MAC before and I'd love to have that in the shelf in some form.
    It's funny, no one but Umbra and HP stop by any more! I talk to much lol! That's fine. Nobody irl listens to me either :) seriously, thank you to everyone who does stop bye. Your interest helps keep me interested. Your help keeps me growing!

    I'm not sure what to expect. Gelato is good smoke and Umbra told me about his banana cut, a different one I'm sure. I remember gelato being sweet as it was already? Lets hope it's a good producer.

    I had my first hint of chocolate taste last week...and it was on an old standard of Purple Kush...on the exhale of one hit...faint Hershey's milk chocolate taste on the end of it...I only eat Ghirardelli 60% cacao...no way it way a left over taste or anything. I have some Exotic Gen. Chocolate Nightmare and Black Triangle coming up on the rotation next run...I am hoping for another chocolate experience .

    I've never really registered chocolate flavor from anything. Umbra's BoC I have, is so much gas and complexity, a touch of sweet bourbon on the exhale. I've bought stuff from dispensaries and still no chocolate stood out. I smoke a lot so that could be what cuts it out.
    I plan to go through more of the BoC and see if I find something like the others did. When the plant turned to flower, she did have a chocolate hint when rustled for a bit. Bud harvested 3 weeks early tastes strongly of Bourbon where as a full finish cuts it to the tip of your tongue and brings out the fuel and some other tastes I'm not the one to nail down. It's complex and I want to squish it to dab soon. I may grab the hair straightener actually. BBL
