Flower time

Closet grow - first time

Four plants in a 3x1.5x6 closet grow. Lots of cheap full spectrum LED lighting - 400+ watts over 5 square feet. All plants in coco + perlite and grown from seed. Gelato is bag seed and had about 2 months in veg and is in a 5 gal pot. The two OG Kush phenotypes around 1 month old are in 3 gallon pots, as is the Northern Lights which is older than the Gelato plant, but was planted in soil and stunted before I received it.

Day: 63

Decided to harvest a few of the most light-damaged colas and get more light to the lower buds. After trimming it became clear it was a bit too early but now there are a lot more green leaves exposed to the light so we’ll see how this plays out. I would like this plant to finish so I can give the others more space, and next round of flowering in this tent will be 2 plants, or at most 3 in 3 gallons max.

Purple coming out more in the NL and a little in the Gelato too. It seems rather clear that the kushes had started to reveg but they are back on course, let’s see how it progresses. I expect to have to chop the big girl first, followed by NL and then let the kushes do their thing but time will tell.

Cleaned out tent and installed new 5 gallon drip tray. Slight rearranging when putting the plants back in. New reservoir should be in tomorrow, just need to drill a few holes for the hoses. Plants were getting a bit too much light, especially the big girl. They also went a day without water as the pump was left unplugged from the timer and I was away for a day. As a result there is some yellowing and a few crispy areas on the topmost colas. The lights were raised a few days ago and I am keeping a much closer eye.

All smushed in. Starting to fatten up all around. I think the big girl is going to finish well before the rest but we’ll see.

Day: 26

Reduced the amount of molasses in the mix and raised lights as pistils seemed to be maturing too early, mostly on the big plant. Lightly removing fan leaves as they block bud sites.

Auto-watering set to “vacation mode” where they will get a little a couple fewer watering with more time in between to try and minimize runoff building up in the tent too much while I’m away for a day or two. I have faith in DripClean to keep everything in order. Looking good to me. Frost coming in on the two leftmost plants, the kushs are still a bit slower. Humidity rising during lights off, over 65 last night. My 6 inch exhaust fan is running on max 24/7 and I have a high flow carbon filter which combined give me plenty of negative pressure, even with the 6 inch booster fan intake on max. I’m trying various things to get that down but I’m also not terribly worried based on the high level of air circulation.

Installed a DIY automatic watering system based off of one of the popular grow info sites. Still dialing in the flow rates, etc. and waiting on a proper timer so it is semi-manual for now but the hydro rings, large reservoir, and pump make watering a breeze and soon, automatic up to 6 times per day.

Stretching. NL and OGK #2 are slower to flower so far.

Day: 8

Defoliated the big girl quite a bit and did light work on the others, but lights went off just before I took any pics so this is a before shot. Buds are coming in! The other three are a little behind with OGK #2 in last.

Day: 7

Filling out quite nicely. Buds seem to be starting on Gelato and just poking out on the rest.

Day: 5

Calyx and pistils are forming, at least on the big girl. Defoliated quite a bit yesterday and some more today. Mixed up “Flowering day 0” nutrients - after adjusting for tap water’s starting ppm, they came out to 650 / 1300 EC and a pH of 6.0 without adjusting. The plants are a bit pale green so hopefully this will bring some colour back.

Day: 2

Mixing the last batch of transition nutes, then full flower. AC not working at the moment so temps are higher than I’d like - 80-85 F
