long time enthusiast, just started more seriously growing, because being home all the time put me in a place to pursue my interest much further. electrician by trade retired. 

Growing is the balm that sooths the day and the flowers of my labors heals our home. 

As the new sun rises, fresh made coffee wafting through the air,

Do we wait and heal? Or go find the things that we thought we might miss when death waved a hand in passing? Every minute precious, what to do, what to do.

looking really good TB! going to be some nice buds on her.

Really Chas? Because they look good from here...

Hi welcome to th P. 

Autos are weird 

My 2 GSC autos are 7w and the Northern lights is 8w. 

3x3 tents, silly me thought I could put all 3 in one phfft. Good thing I had a second setup available 

Oh look! (he's using a net)laughing

As you can see Rocket everyone has their own light preferences and they are all the best. I am sure as long as it fills the general outline of the lights we all use, you'll be fine. Go for the best you can afford.  You won't  be disappointed. Remember the best isn't always expensive.  Look at results. What plants look like under what lights. Usually there are photos of finished plants and the lights they grow under.

Me? I would find out what pipes uses and go with that.

Hi rocket there are a lot of good leds out there to fill your budget for sure! I found my vipar spectra lights very adequate for the job, but if you're not on a budget you can't  go wrong with spider farmer or better yet the HLG series! the new Scorpion looks really nice. Just so many good leds out there now.

but I learned a lot about plant resistance. the skunk didn't seem to be bothered by anything

My Lac

Here is my LAC been in the fridge still very active. As you see I added in the molasses to keep it fed. Put 300 ml into 10 gals and aerated it over night. Plants are loving it. Here I have used half and still looks like beer, with a molasses like odor.

Cob 2 the album

So here are 2 photos  First is at the point when they transition to cure. Second is at 15 days. The smell at transition is what you'd expect fermented grass with strange overtones. At 15 days it smelling like some dank weed brick. Cuts like chewing tobacco  Smells delicious and while a little damp yet the smoke is smooth and hasty. I think when its had a month or more it's going to be superb.

So here is how this one grew out. Very airy structure, but thick. Wish I knew what exactly was the cause if there was one. Could be genes. I do want this on the to do again list, but let us see how it smokes. Had to reduce all of these pictures. 😶

Nute lockout

So I been having a bit of issue with nutrient lockout. Think I have it solved, dumb old fart thing, but wanted to show some before and after. Now I don't have befores of one set or the after of the other, and if you understand that, well, gonna share? My monkey og and company suffered bad as the other 2 you see in the other pic. After a serious flush, not an easy task with autopots, but doable. I put them on a low ppm transition diet and they revegged and will just finish outside. Shit happens but glad I could save them. Hopefully the other 2 will come around as well
