    Thx. I had to repair a couple more claw rips today. Another repair option is Flexiseal which I think would be better for large ‘issues’. My son has my old tent and it is more like mosquito netting at this point. He needs to paint on a coating I think... ;)

    Vivosun shipped my tent with silver tape and some shiny material to fix problems but it doesn't really stay put all the time. I didn't even know they made liquid electrical tape.

    I tried duct tape, electrical tape, foil tape and even bought some over priced fabric tape. All of it peels off over time. I didn’t know they made liquid electrical tape either but I was browsing around Lowe’s and saw it after seeing a quart of Flexiseal costs like $40. The liquid tape was $7.

    Your neighborhood bandits are the cutest! Sorry about the bird feeders but on the bright side, they aren't tipping over the rubbish bins! Or ARE THEY!? We have a trash coyote and flock of crows but they stay out of mine because I won't put it out til I've dumped the litterbox in there.

    The raccoons have not gone after the trash but are making my yard part of their routine as they returned a couple nights ago. One took a can of bacon fat I had attached to a tree branch. I think they want the suet I have in cages above the feeders so I broke one cake up and left it on a frisbee in front of the camera last night. No takers though...

    The screen is getting full and starting to show stigmas...

    Cuttings all have roots after 1 week. Easy-peasy for once. Thx to stinkyattic for the recommendation of Rapid Rooters and Dip ‘n’ Gro. She will be the proud adoptive parent of 3 fresh Mimosa clones, one established Mimosa and one established Mendo Cookie.

    The mom is close to being done with her ‘stretch’ and the bud sites are 6-ish inches above the net for the most part and the spacing between nodes is small for me. I could be happy with some 6+ inch colas. I grew some Dutch Passion Master Kush maybe 5 years ago using scrog and liked my results and I can’t for the life of me remember why I stopped using screens...

    Screens have their challenges. My super silver haze scrog had 6 inch colas. Yielded 2lbs from a 4x4. 20170130_194738.jpg 20170130_194722.jpg

    This mother liked her foliar feeding. Rolling up on 2 weeks in flower tomorrow.

    Had a container of Mimosa pollen in the fridge. Not much in there but I swiped a brush around in it and pollinated(I hope) one branch(again, I hope). We will call it 2 weeks today of flower. I hope if I get some seeds that they are better developed than the last batch. Maybe I will hit the branch again in a day or 2.

    Getting some light burn I think. I lifted the King LED up as high as I can. The leaves where the light from the King and the 2 Growstars overlap is where the burn is happening. I think it is a combination of my adding the King as an afterthought and the fact that the plant spent most of its lif under t5’s.

    Edited because I can’t type on an iPhone and I only have 2 Growstar LEDs...

    Checked the pH of my run off using some drops from @stinkyattic (thx) just for a sanity check. Looks greenish-yellowish to me so I think pH is not completely out of whack. Plants look ok aside from the light burn.
