    lol well i dont dissagree with it being weird as i literally stuffed the t5's in where i could, basically i have 4 600w hps surrounding a endomaxx cmh315 all the hps hoods are sealed and ducted pulling cold air from the outside pumping it through the lights and out of the room, i can maintain from 68-85 controlled light on (in the winter). the lights are at weird angles also to give the most headroom. Also i am only running 3 out of the 4 hps that are installed so i am running 2100w + t5's

    it is true, my electric bill is not enjoyable to look at, but come harvest time it makes it all worth it. Even if i can only pull .25/g per watt i will still pull almost 500g, and i suspect i should do better

    here are some full plant pics we are starting week 4 currently day 31, i have only had the uv under for 1 week so far and prior to putting them in my trich development was non existent, now though check out the next post down for the bud pics. I started the res at 3.1ec()1550ppm, and in 4 days they have consumed 7.ec (350ppm). I am going to be stopping the phosphorus as i believe i have built up enough energy to fire off the sugar production, so potassium from here on out will be added.

    did a res change today added in the following biostimulants kelp, fulvic, calmag, amino acids, and vitamin b(300ppm), then i added in 1200ppm base nutes. since this is week 5 its now time to start adding in additional potassium to start pushing the sugars to the flower, time to bulk up.

    ok mid week5 took some trich shots, got some nice development going on now, love me some powerveg uv also moved around the 7ft sk to get it a little better under the lights and able to be worked on. I have also adjusted the lights to 75% to trigger the plants into thinking summer is over and fall is beginning, week 8 or week 9 ill drop it to 50% and give it deep red signalling the end of the season and time to put the finish on... hopefully lol
    fed it light to start the week, bumped it up to 3.4 to give em a kick in the cooter, seems to be working

    so i think i might have a bad ballast, last cycle i had a bblue dream that just didnt produce any trichs it was dissapointing i thought it might be a bulb so i replaced it late last grow. but this grow i have the sk under it and another hps and the cmh and the part that is under the hps that the blue dream was under look very trichome deficient, so now i have swapped the ballast, the only thing left to change is the socket. Any thoughts?

    well i couldnt just leave it as it was so i took that light out of the mix, shut her off, rearranged the 7ft sk (not an easy task) then i moved one of the 4ft t5uvs that was blocking the front hps(which was off and now is on) and moved it to where the one that is now off is. So now i am still under 2hps and the CMH along with a 4ft t5

    did a res change this morning the first feed right before lights come on was at 2.8ec, upon a couple of feeding it dropped to 2.5, so i cranked it up a bit to 3.3 see how they like it, this week will be the last big push, i will slowly step it back down to around 2.4ec by the time i am ready to harvest. Here are some updated pics with the plant moved.
