    Hey Goddess; The 2 room layouts are actually for a friend that has the overall space and wanted some ideas for how to lay it out to have both a veg room and a flower room.

    You are right on the light coverage for the veg space. For security reasons my friend didn't want to supply too much info on his room except for the fact that it is far removed from his home, and he wants to be able to keep everything (supplies and such) within the room. So he wouldn't be able to fully utilize the veg space area specifically for plants.

    I generalized the layout explanation here as I discussed the particulars with him in a private message...It is good though that you pointed out the particulars for anyone else that would look at those plans :)

    So we have moved a little closer to firing up the new addition to the grow-lab. Had to set up some lights after getting it ready. went ahead and moved the White Russian babies into the new room. We will be taking cuttings from them real soon so that we can fill the new room up with White Russians and Blueberries :hubba: Here's a few pics of the new room:

    So we are now flowering the new White Russian strain in the jungle room, which used to be the big room before the addition. I call it the "jungle room" because every time we put plants in there to flower, we let them get too big and they about take over the room. The last harvest that we took out was BBPunch and my partner screwwed them up. They were fat and growing beautifully until he overstressed them and caused them to hermie on us and seed themselves. I was so disappointed when I saw the buds had lost half their girth when they started seeding up.:hitchair:

    Well, hopefully we will get a better harvest out of these White Russians which are about 4.5 weeks into flowering:

    Sounds like your partner needs to smoke a little less before tending to the plants. ;P Nice budporn, though!

    Looks great Hush. Too difficult to get some shots without the hps on? Can you adjust the white balance on your camera? Really not doing justice to your talents.

    Can't adjust the camera much. It's not a real high quality camera. It is one of them Cannon "get buys". Since the girls are in flower, HPS is the only light they get. :)

    So I got tired of having to go to my partner's place to work in the gro-lab as it is a couple hours away. Was gonna start a grow with another friend but decided to do it by myself. Been working on my cabinets 2.5'x4'x7' with T5HO for veg and 2 250w HPS in each cab for flowering. I am gonna get the high intensity 35k lumen bulbs from HTGsupply for them. That will give me about 70,000lumens for flowering in each room. I am growing my first run with 2 BBPunch in one cab and 2 White Russian in the other cab, all from clones so no sexing to worry about at this point. Now for some pics:

    So the new cabinets are growing good. I am gettin ready to flip the White Russians over to flowering this week. I am hoping to get my other HPS light for my cab today so that I can set it up tomorrow and flip them. The other cabinet has Blueberry Punch in it that is still in low veg. I have been growing them slow as I don't have enough lighting in that cab for flowering yet.

    I will have to wait to get more lights for that cab before I can use both for flowering. So I will just veg the BBP till the WR harvests then move the BBP over to the other cab for flowering. :icon_smile:

    Excellent journal Hushpuppy. I'm sorry to hear about the hermies -- they were looking soooo nice too. I'm sure you will have a lot better luck on your own. You obviously know what you are doing. Looking real good -- green mojo to you!!!!!

    So I wanted to show this as I was looking over my pics and noticed the level of growth for these 2 plants after doing the Fim technique followed by a small amount of supercropping and tieing. The first pic is on 10-5 before doing anything to them. The next pic is 10-11 a few days after doing Fim and before supercrop. Pic 3 is 10-12 one day after supercrop. Pic 4 is on 10-13. Pic 5 is on 10-23 just 10 days later. The growth speaks for itself. The plants at this point are under 1 250w MH and 4 4'T5HO grow bulbs. :D

    A friend asked me about the different training techniques so I drew up this terrible picture with a red marker so that it can be seenin the picture, to show exactly how to do the FIM technique. It looks kind of like a pic that Hamster Lewis put up a while back except that I tried to exagerate the top growth bulb (the meristem) so that you can see what I mean about feeling the bulb with the fingertips. :)

    The object here, for the FIM technique, is to feel the rounded growth "bulb" at the top of the meristem (which is the top main cola) between the tips of the forefinger and the thumb, and pinch out the material at and above the line that is drawn (in blue) through the top "bulb" of growth in the picture. :)

    By leaving approximately 1/3 of the bottom of the bulb, it will allow the bulb to regrow and at the same time force the top secondary branches to grow upwards to become top main colas as well. :)

    I am by no means an expert on this but I feel like I have mastered the "feel" of the technique and have used it with much success. And I hope that I can help others to master it as well as it is a very good technique for creating multiple top main colas, which become the best buds on the plant. :)
