Well kind of a shitty week. The weather has been garbage, it snowed twice... yeah snowed. There is not a whole lot of growth to report on due to the weather. The Grand Daddy Purple has a lot of space between it's nodes this week, to what I can only attribute to the poor lighting with it being over casted, cold and snowing all week.

The other 2 photo's are doing just as well as you can see, again not a whole lot of growth after the topping, but I'm assuming the environment for them has not been as favorable as needed, so they are just focusing all their energy on not dying. Which I'm totally cool with lol.

The mephisto's are growing well, I'm still training them around the pot trying to get more tops out of them. The ChemDawg is doing significantly better than the Sweet N Sour,

I haven't had to do hardly any watering this week as the soil is still damp, temps are cold and humidity is high. I did water and feed them today though as we are expecting temps and weather to reach mid 70
s this week.

The Girl Scout Cookies is still in her seedling phase, not sure why this strain is giving me so much trouble, but she's not dead, and first true leaves are just starting to poke out, I've got her in the indoor tent with my Auto grow soaking up some light and hoping that gets her hardy enough to bring her outdoors.

Grow Questions

If you check in the video above with the soil I have a lot of natural water occurring in the holes. What's the best way to prevent root rot from occurring given the circumstances?

ive grown a ton of tomatoes and peppers in containers and from my experience that won't really happen man. the plants are gonna be hella happy in that thing no matter what there is area for the roots to dig into and grow in the ground, it doesnt mean that those roots need to necessarily have a job, and some roots may rot, but it doesn't mean that that root was useful anyway. it may have grown for a specific part of the plant and then rotted and the plant then signals the rest of the plant to uptake from other roots. the amount of roots in the ground doesn't mean much because a plant can only grow so fast and so optimally, beyond that it will fix every problem given the right environment. the environment your giving it is like plant-steroids habitat. the plant will not have needed the potentially rotted root if it ''rots'' in this great environment you are giving it. it would simply just discard it while fungus bacteria trichodermia and other bioturbulent insects would clear the way for more roots to grow anyway. I saw your vid of watering the soil I think your 300 dollar tent is awesome and I wish when I built mine I could have beena bit more simpler, Now im downsizing and im going to use that little pvc tube thing to encase my little grow area because a squared wooden roof was just a stupid idea. yours looks so simple dang. wish I didn't put so much thought into mine.

Should I top plants outdoors? I'd imagine the sun would be powerful enough to penetrate an uneven canopy, however I don't have unlimited growspace, Depending on how tall these girls get they could very easily grow through the literal ceiling. Any thoughts?

I’m not sure how high your ceiling is and the average height of each of your strains but If you think that height will be an issue then I’d say top them. From what I’ve seen there may not be much difference in yield cause the sun can penetrate deeply, but if you don’t mind losing a few days growth, then save yourself a hassle down the track and just top them once.

Looks excellent.

Your manuals, have you considered revegging them? I noticed some weird shit on some of my outdoor plants (no autos) from harvesting in a few different ways.

Btw, as a preventative thing (and potassium/carbon addition to foliar spray), check out either char/ash tea (potassium carbonate + other stuff) or potassium bicarbonate, if you don't know about it, especially near/in flowering, high humidity.

Think of it as like, good baking soda. In that it's alkaline, kills fungus, but it's also a really good potassium and carbon source. And with something like ash/char tea or something, it's pretty much free, but even potassium bicarbonate should be cheap there, from what I know.
