**Update, 4-7-2015 ** After a bit this goes from HPS to LED entirely. Just generally FYI Well, no crazy thread titles for this one. This will be the journal I just constantly update. Hope some of you join me for this, as this is going to be fun! I have settled on 6 strains that I'm going keep running for most likely a couple of years or more. I think there's something great and knowledgable getting to know a strain very well. Find out what it wants the most, how to get it to maximize itself. Also, I've found some strains that just "work" for me. Room rundown: - One 4x4 Tent for Veg - Two 4.5 x 4.5 tents for flower, staggered by 4 weeks - Two 4' / four bulb Sunblaze T5HO for Veg - 8x Mars II 400w LED fixtures - DWC in 18 gal Rubbermaid Totes - Jungle Juice / Cal-Mag / Liquid KoolBloom / Rhizotonic / Thrive Alive (transplanting only) / Bloombastic / Hygrozyme / Pure Blend Tea / - Strains: (all currently from my clones) ◄ G13 Labs, Cinderella 99 (This is my favorite) ◄ OG Seeds, Merlot OG (*discontinued*) ◄ DNA Genetics, Tangilope ◄ G13 Labs, Pineapple Express ◄ Dinafem, Cheese ◄ Delicious Seeds, Critical Sensi Star - Training methods used: Top or FIM (try to FIM) / LST / Super Cropping / Excess foliage removal (this is subjective to each and every grower) Ok, so basically I've been running these all from seed for awhile. I've also darn near mastered (IMO) the art of cloning, FINALLY!! So I've been able to keep all these strains. I would like to keep them all going, but we'll see. Not sure who I'd get rid of, as I absolutely love them all for their own reasons. I had 8 strains and already eliminated two. I must say, the C99 out performs every aspect of growing. It takes the biggest beating (poor growing) and shows the healthiest of all plants in the face of adversity. It produces the HARDEST nugs I've ever seen, and the smell / terrapins in this are out of this world! Here's the first pic update, and since I'm in a hurry I may come back and update the thread soon with some more text... Yes, some of the pics have bad focus... yes, my flowering tent (last soil run) has yellowed...yes, there's a lot of stretch in veg, I just bury the stems and it also allows me to make them wider earlier on in their lives. Any and all questions please ask! Would love to see some major member participation in this one. I'm back to Hydro, and this is surely going to be a show! Last run when I was hydro I was hitting 7 - 10 Oz's dry from singles. (Strain; Delicious Seeds Cotton Candy) *After thought* The tent with current 18 gal's is vegging more with two 400w MH hoods. I'm thinking of getting them to 24" before I flip. They are currently 18" tall. Also, the one tent flowering currently is my LAST soil(ess) run.
