    Some of these were looking a bit yellow kinda like underfed or maybe ph blocked. I just got my new ph pen an Apera, and it seems pretty accurate as compared to my old cheap ones that would never agree with each other. Anyway I have the ph set at 5.6 now and hoping for a drift up to about 6.5 before I change the res. We’ll see what happens. I also bumped up my nute mixture and they seem to be responding with a little greener growth again. Next feeding I think I’ll start the ph a little higher, close to 6 maybe...
    I put in this far red flower initiator as well and I’m gonna flip’m so we can see who’s the girls in the bunch. All Valentine x various from rosebuds bathroom.
    We see....

    Starting to get a little crowded in here. I knew I’d pull about half so I started 10 but maybe shoulda started 6 instead...we’ll, we see how it goes...

    I was able to pull 3 boys out today which gives me a little more room in the cabinet...so I decided to build and install my Scrog today and give the girls a little trim... the only bummer is I lost 2 Nurse Larry’s to boyhood... Oh well, onward and upward...

    Down to 5 of 10 but I’m pretty sure these are the girls now. Quite a bit more room in there now except for the vertical. I should be ok though...

    Time to start moving sideways. I love to scrog train, it's the best way to maximize your space and light.

    Lost another to boyhood today but the rest are all girls... I started 3 strains with 3 seeds each from Rose’s cbd project and I now have 1 girl of each plus a fem seed that I already had. Down to 4 out 10 but this I think is the perfect number for my grow space. Now I’m just trying to spread them out and keep them as low as I can till the buds start taking shape.

    My Scrog is starting to fill out. I’m just pushing stuff down and spreading it out. I trim a bit of green every day to let the light thru...

    I’m thinking about adding 3 more strips and another 185w meanwell driver... I didn’t notice that the flower initiator had much effect on the flower rate as they seemed pretty slow to get started but I don’t have a great deal of experience yet. I can’t afford to buy a fabulous bio-wave machine though!!!

    I see flowers, very cool RE. I am tickled you are growing these out and look forward to a smoke report. I hope to get mine tested for the cbd profile. I hope you love the smoke and it is as helpful as i think it is.

    The nurse is the one with the most bud sites and also the one I’m looking forward to trying the most...

    Checked my ppm’s and ph this afternoon. Usually I will draw about 6 gallons of tap water for my res, check the ph and add nutes. At this stage in my grow I’m feeding at about 1000ppm, my water starts at 40. This will bring my 7.5 ph tap water to about 5.5 or so. I usually bump it up to about 6.3 or 4 and it’ll drift down to about 5.5 before I need to do anything else.
    I changed my res yesterday doing exactly what I described above and today the ph is 6.7, drifting the other way... the plants look fine but why do you think the ph is drifting the other way? The medium is coco chips...

    Most of these buds are the Nurse Larry x Valentine from Rose and Umbra. I’m sure looking forward to trying this out...Hard to tell the difference but sipome of the front buds are the CBD Crew mix x Valentine.

    Got a bunch of garden stuff done today, spring is here and I am havin fun with it...I’m brewing a batch of compost tea for the garden and also finished my lactobacillus serum. I ended up with about a half gallon. I’ll thin it as I use it and apply it with the compost tea I think. In about a month, I’ll start some pot out in the garden too and it’ll be all organic. I’m excited about doing this outside and organic...the cbd grow is coming along nicely in my cabinet as well, we got flowers!!!

    The bucket thing is a space bucket. It has another small bucket inserted thru the bottom of the 5 gallon bucket and the plant sits in there in whatever pot your using. And it grows inside the 5 gallon bucket. In the lid there are four 15 watt LEDs bulbs that have been disassembled so they take up less space and a computer fan for ventilation. The elbows are air inlets and the black bucket at the bottom is the reservoir.... Sort of an experiment and I was thinking of trying to reverse a female in there some day for some fem seeds... maybe...
