    I really did not want to re-write my grow journal so I thought a brief summary would do...
     
    Grow Area: Lower level closet. Size is 3 1/2 feet by 4-1/2 feet by 9 feet. Roughly 12 sqft . Louver door, painted walls flat white

    Grow System:
    Aeroponic-Hydroponic diy grow system. By using deep tote boxes, 1 as a solution/rez box, 1 as a grow boxes, aquarium air pump, submerged water pump, (4) 12" air stones, aquarium heater, 24 hour timer for solution pump, programmable timer for CFLs, (2) 8 inch fans providing fresh air, (2) thermal gauges.

    Operation: The " solution pump" sends oxygenated nutes to the micro sprayers located inside of the growbox. The oxygenated nutes are sprayed onto the plants suspended roots, then the solution drains back to rez. box.

    Grow Nutrients: General Hydroponics Flora Grow, Flora Bloom and Flora Micro,Calmag+, and Distilled Water only, drained and replenished every 7 days

    CFL Grow Lights:
    (Six) 85watt, 6500k, 4200 lumen for vegetation
    (Six) 42 watt, 6500k, 3860 lumen for vegetation

    (Five) 105 watt, 2700k, 5000 lumen for flowering
    (Four) 65 watt, 2700k, 4800 lumen for flowering
    (Four) 55 watt, 3000k, 3860 lumen for flowering
    (Ten) 23 watt, both 6500k and 2700k to provide mixed spectrums
    15 clamp on light fixtures

    Light Schedules:
    Seedling-Vegetation: 24hrs/day, all 6500k range
    Flowering/Ripening: 12/12 for 2 weeks, 14/10 until harvest
    Note: 48 hours of no lights before harvest

    Strains:
    Landrace Columbian Gold, feminized
    Blue Widow, feminized

    This is at 109 days into the grow, 59 days into flowering. Trichomes today were 60-70% Cloudy w/alittle amber. Start rinsing the roots tommorrow. Currently burning 1290watts, 79,000+ lumen

    Both the Landrace CG and BW are so top heavey I have 3-4 BW just laying down, can't reach them and already have tied up a dozen colas in the growroom...

    Thanks bho, it's good to be back among freinds. Checked the trics today, alittle more amber. I've been rinsing the roots for 24 hours so far. I'm sure the one dominet Gold is ready, the other two a few more days. The Blue Widow is pretty much done as well.

    They all continue to fatten/ripen, I just wonder if I might be cutting to soon. I have read and been told, " if you think the plants are readt, give them 1 last week, so perhaps I'll do that. Once again it really depends on the trics or at least how I see the trics. I have my wife double check cuz I'm slightly color blind.

    Day 110 of the grow, day 60 of flowering

    Hey meetmrfist2, good to hear from ya. Yeah the CG and BW are showing signs of amber so I put them into a rinse mode for the next few days. Need to keep checking those trics...won't be long now

    Do you know if they will continue to fatten, cuz they sure do appear so. Photo of #2 CG tied or anchored so it won't fall over

    Hey powerplanter, good of you to return..I'm rinsing the roots as we speak, I guess I'll do the cut this weekend. Right now they are at 50%-60% cloudy w/alittle amber showing..

    Some of Blue Widow and Gold colas are so heavy they have fallen over. was able to tie-up about half of them, the rest all can do is locate a CFL over them. Should be ok tho,

    Glad your back brother.

    Thanks rosebud and slowmo77. This grow has been trouble free so far. I hope I'll be able to re-veg and make mommas out them. I might try to start a new strain or 2 and put into the mix w/my clones. I have some regular Bubbledelicious seeds and a few feminized Red Dragon seeds I tried back on the start of the grow. I guess I worry about that in a few days..

    No problem, if I remember correctly, you had lost your previous grow tho, right? Btw I'm sitting in the middle of a winter storm, hope I don't lose power. Even businesses are shutting down...

    Trichomes are showing more amber today. Still rinsing the roots. Depending on what happens w/trics tomorrow, most likely top-off the rez box and go dark for 48 hours...man I finally got there. Photos of the smaller bud is what I call my under-bud, I'll cut a week to 10 days after the main harvest. The other photos are some of my main colas from LCG and BW
