    Summer is definitely over. All summer I nursed 6 cheese some WW and sativa in 4 inch pots with peat and perlite under 250W. Kind of drain to waste with GH. After pulling clones I was left with four now cheese ex-mothers. Rather than stick them in a big dirt pots, I stuck them in a 2.5 gallon hempy with clay pebbles, coco and a sand cap. So these have a clone in rock wool, stuck in peat, wrapped in hempy. I am feeding the Lucas method: feed water, water, Feed. I use H202 as a general tonic and vermin control. 600W HPS

    These are the next generation for the clone screen, they were started in rock wool and then established coco/pebble drain to waste until transplanted into a Hempy bucket. GH 3 part DTW

    The two sativa on the right were eliminated leaving 4 white widows

    With any luck at all: these plants will all finish before May

    the tent is working fine. A 4X4 will produce enough to share. Nevada has a 2.5 oz and 12 plant limit.

    The stink has set in big time and the plants are praying. Everything that appeared un-orthodox has worked out well. Hemp Goddess’s observations about Lucas veg problems saved a lot of grief and misplaced blame. I read about Lucas un-suitably in Hempy and was about to abandon the idea when I found a posting that suggested treating the feeding like soil (feed, water, water, feed) would work. The feed schedule has evolved to feeding until 20% waste, then two watering with minimal run off.
    All feedings and watering have 5cc cal-mag per gallon. 2 – 2.5 gallons daily is sufficient to feed or water the 4 plants in flower.
    The Hempy in veg and the pre veg DTW are getting low light and low levels from the DTW schedule.

    Lookin real classy!

    Edit: Was wondering how far you keep your 600 from the top of your plants. I'm using a 600 for my first time this year and it was too bright. The ladies didn't like that much light. :( Which height has worked best for you?

    I have found that it is easy to over heat the tent with the 600W. Warmth on the back of the hand is the normal guide. I usually turn the ballast down to 400W when temps push over 80F

    Too bad there isnt a way to plug in a usb thing that instantly teleports whatever we place into the receptacle to someone elses receptacle via internet. So we can share buds much easier!
