Day 9 of harvest. She’s all done! Got 173.5g’s out of her. Just barley over 6oz!! Crazy how I got bud that looked like that(pic with bud on blue tray) to what I grew and it came out looking like. Very sticky and amazing smell. Also, the whiter keif is what came out of my trim bin compared to my old grinded bud keif

Day 7 of harvest. Took some branch’s off bc they were done drying. One of the bigger ones I took of were not done at the top by the main cola.

Day 3 of harvest. The smell to her in the room is not as strong. Still there but doesn’t kick your nose when you walk in, is that normal?????? Also the RH is mid 40’s and temp still mid 60’s. Trying to keep RH at 50 is hard even with the humidifier

Day 2 of chop. She’s really sticky and the smell is very sweet/earthy type. I see some purple hues in the leaves/sugar leaves. Kinda interesting due to the bud I got didn’t have any what do ever at all. Last pic is just some I had on a side stem that was a decent size bud at the top so I chopped into the bud size to dry on my trim try in the dry room. Just something different to try with it 😂

Day 1 of chop. Woke up this morning to what looked like someone came and stole my damn plant. Nope, she got tired and fell onto the floor at some point last night so that’s great😂 more duct tape will do the job just fine😂😂 got my tent conditions to 45-50%RH and mid 60’s F temps. Decided to chop some off and do them separately since it was crowded and buds were stacking on each other. Just trying to prevent mold

Day 72 of flower. HELP, when should I chop her at what number for the moist. I know you don’t want to do it bone dry but not too wet either. I know the pic is bad I don’t want to take a lot trying to get it perfect in her dark period before harvest. It is reading at a solid 7 for moisture

Day 72 of flower and she is chopped grownies! Now my RH is 40% average mid 60’s. Are my conditions good? I did the whole plant(clearly) to help with my low RH and keep the slow dry time still there. Hopefully she’ll be done drying by Friday or next weekend! I read 5-10days

Day 62 of flower. Just gave her a flush. I’m doing it in sections. There wasn’t that dark of a run off for the first flush so i don’t want to drain her of nutes 100% right away. Also my 3rd to last pic is what I harvest early. They are lower stems that were too heavy already so I decided to chop them and I got 9’s out of 4 branches when premature too. I weighed it after I had them hanging upside in dark for 10 days

Day 43 of flower. Did some defoliation on her this morning when lights turned on. Wanted to open her up more to get more air flowing through her. Hopefully I didn’t do too much. I don’t think I did.

Has anyone used/uses the SF-1000. If so, have you used 2 of them at the same time in a 3x3 tent? I have one plant in my 3x3 but it kinda covers the whole space. Reason I have 2 lights is because one light only cover a 2x2 area when in flowering. I have the lights connected to each other and at 100% lighting. Should I turn it down or keep it? It’s been at 100% for almost a whole week. I just don’t want to bleach the buds. Any info is helpful!

Since they have only grown about 1inch or less in the first 5 days of flowering I decided to buy another SF1000. Was reading the flowering print is only for a 2x2 area and with 3 plants I feel like I needed at 2nd one to provide better light coverage all around. Think it is overkill?

GrNadeGrade

GrNadeGrade Based on the size of your ⛺️, now would be perfect for flipping…imo. Remember on average they 2x - 3x in size after flipping. Size of grow pot also regulates the 🌱 size. 👍🏾 🍀

bigbudhopes20

bigbudhopes20 I got 2 of them in 5 gal and one in I believe 7gal+. You don’t think them only being 5 weeks old from sprouting out of the dirt that they are too young?

GrNadeGrade

GrNadeGrade So, there isn’t an exact science to how big your plants may or may not get in those sizes. Also, be mindful of your available canopy space. The longer u allow them to outgrow their pot, the more regular nutes maintenance you’ll have to do. **if anyone would like to add to this thread it’d be very much appreciated. I’m a new growmie myself.

ig:@eaegifts Depending on your end goal, if you’re gonna scrog then topping and putting a trellis is the way to go but if not then I’d go say go with the soft ties so you can still rotate them around and water easily. You can use the trellis just for lst also but it becomes harder to get under and water as they bush out
