Removed the net to move the pots around. The Amnesia Haze has 70-80 golf ball to racketball-sized buds. Dense and sticky. I would have been elated just to have this o harvest. Need to dry the top colas and finish the Blueberry dry before I can chop. Probably next weekend, if I can wait that long…

The Girl Scout Cookies Extreme didn’t quite turn out as I would have liked. A lot of larf. Probably due to being in the 1x3 side of the tent. Even under the 300 Rspec at full blast. This one has good amber. I’m just waiting to see if the colas get more dense. She is drinking well though and should get better in a week. This one is for nighty night.

Wet numbers are in for the Amnesia Haze. The top colas are in Grove bags now. Dry weight 175 g /6.25 oz. This is a partial pic as I couldn’t fit them all on the plate.

The second cut 734g wet & trimmed. Will bag when it gets to 184g/6.55oz. 3sqft of buds. Total is almost 13 oz. Almost there in my search for the LB.

Here is the stem…

Ant the Girl Scout Cookies Extreme. She didn’t turn out quite like I wanted, Very thin and larfy, but when it gets put in the grinder who cares. I let this go with probably 15-25% amber. Good night sleepy sleep.

On to the next run. Dropped 4 - 420 FB Banana Purple Punch and one more ILGM Girl Scout Cookies X. All autos.

Thanks @DEEPDIVERDAVE. This plant was 7 months in the making. I really think adding the HLG Blackbird and the uv light helped a lot. That and the hours of reading everyone’s posts and advice. I LOVE THIS SITE!

It’s in a 3x3. It fits perfectly. and the UV bar is mounted to the center. The height is just at 5 feet, only have 3 more inches of room at the top of the tent. I used my photophone app for the dli 150 power in seedling and gradually moved it up the first 3-4 weeks in veg to around 700+/- about, 50-60 % on the dial Then once I flipped Turned it all the way up and was reading 1200-1300 ppf. Once she foxtailing started dialed it back to 900.

Appreciate your sharing of the formula used for growing those beauties.
I banished my revegers to the outdoors. Males and seedlings, too.
Trying indoor during summer, One plant in 4x4x6.5.
Running HLG lights at flower 15" and 500-600watts is causing bleaching.
I just raised the lights 3 inches. UVA-30 bar centered perpendicular to HLG 350R & 260D. Running full power, watching temperature swings and my limited ability to influence. Previous heavy defoliation, frigid lung room during seedling growing (in the spring?), and PH lock issues for resolving 7.2PH/1400PPM run-off being decreased. Another month or two, I hope.

I had some issues with the autos as well. temps in the mid-80s during the day and in the low 70s at night. Even with a humidifier, it was hard to get the RH up to the 60 in veg, and without, the RH was mid-40s high 30’s.

I only ph’d the water and tea. Doing all organic makes it a lot easier with my schedule.

Well HotDog! All 5 seeds popped. up. 4 - 420 FB Banana Purple Punch and one more ILGM Girl Scout Cookies X. All autos. I was going to do the mix random pack but didn’t read the package. Now I just need to keep them alive.

5 gallon pots filed with COM Stonington blend and some worm castings. Light is dialed in to 130 ppf at 4 feet. RH is low 60’s. Temp low 70’s. Misting the domes until the leaves touch the sides, then we are off to the races!
