I am fond of take /leave and re-shape crown.
Awesome lights, I wish, to move up, someday.
Happy with 350R/260Kit in my 4x4.
Thank you for the shared info.
Tent size for two 600’s?
I have a couple of colas, pointing sideways, aiming down and out on tent fringes.
Even some from inside to open and shape crown.
They will get cut soon.

I took the advice of chopping all the main and mature colas and leaving the bottom to grow, I never had to do this before, especially with autos, thease are photos and I made a lot of mistakes that I will correct next grow, I stuffed way to many plants in my 4x8. 14 total! 5 autos and the 9 photos pictured above, I really hope I didn’t chop to early? What’s done is done I suppose.

I have this problem too lol. I went small time this run with only 5 in my 3x3.5 closet, but I’ve had 7 in it lol. I would absolutely lose myself in a 4x8 lol.

Your buds in the pix look ready. I’ve done a partial harvest here and there. It doesn’t hurt anything, just takes longer to dry and cure the whole plants since they come down in portions.

And again, nice freakin buds growmie!!

Thanks I really appreciate that! I think we(me definitely) beat ourselves up and overthink how they look sometimes. The buds are so heavy that they are literally breaking the stems in half, that’s one thing I’ve learned for next grow is to tie them up, not sure why I’ve never had this issue before? But again I’m thinking too many plants and most likely not enough light to lower areas of plants, hence the different curing times lol

I have a drying tent in basement with the priemum colas I just chopped, and I have the 5 little auto’s hanging outside shed, the auto’s have been hanging 5days this morning and they are still pretty moist, so I’m definitely thinking it’s gonna be a nice slow dry of a minimum of 10 days :grinning:

That’s not always a bad thing lol. I’ve opened up the closet and found one or two branches completely bent over. The whole plants just looking like octopus arms laying around from the buds weighing the branches lol. I use plant stakes, but am switching to support ties when needed.

Those are beautiful looking buds! I am just finishing up my first grow here in a 4×4 with 3 HLG lights and 3 plants. I had problems with alot of yellowing leaves at about the 5th week of flower. Im on my 9th week now and I’m real hesitant on chopping them. They dont look completely ripened to me. Still alot of clear to semi cloudy with amber on the sugar leaves.
How did you get your leaves to stay so green this far into flowering? I’m using Jacks 321 but i feel like i missed something. I didn’t use any bloom boosters and just fed with Jacks most of the grow. I was using molasses and TPS Billions with silica and kept the PPMs around 1000. Had problems with Ph early on in late veg but had it corrected by flowering time.

@Mjm697 one more question. You said your light schedule is 18/6. Is this good to do in flower? I thought 12/12 was protocol?

I apologize I meant I switched to 12/12 to get plants to flower from 18/6 so so sorry :grinning:

I use general hydroponics 3part flora series, I grow in dirt, ph water to target of 6.5
I use 3 gallons of r.o. Water and 1 gallon tap water so I have a buffer for my ph testing, I learned that here. Dli is very important I have learned! And I followed the dli chart and use photo tone app on my phone to dial in dli.

Also used molasses unit about 3rd week into flower, also use epson salts from day one unit the last 2 weeks when I flush

I honestly think your leaves look great!

Also use cal mag

I grow in soil also but just use gassed off tap water. Maybe the RO and tap mix did something to help?..?..?
I’ve been monitoring my DLI with the photone app also. Kept it around 45-55 the whole time in flower but i did drop in for 10 days to 35-45 with cooler temps to simulate autumn which may have been a bad idea but i got some colors from it. Golds and purples… i switched back up to 45-55 DLI because i noticed that they weren’t as sticky after 10 days of lower DLI. I’m in my 9th week. They should be ripe soon…

First full grow useing the ro/tap water combo, I’m very happy with appearance for sure, I used tap water immediately from sink throughout this grow and honestly saw no difference (actually way better :joy::joy:) from leaving tap water sit overnight, I personally am not doing that ever again, but I’m definitely sold on the 3gallon to 1gallon mix.

Useing that water formula and Gh flora, my ph is always close in range, I only have use ph up to get to my target of 6.4-6.5
