The scent if this flower is insane. It’s sweet and fresh kind of like Jean Nate but intoxicating like ylangylang.
It really doesn’t smell like weed. The flowers on this are gorgeous. I’m in love with it and will definitely grow it again.
Defoliated a bit and did some rearranging in the grid ti optimize exposure of bud sites to light. The buds are stacking nicely.
It’s been raining here in Southern California as you probably know but luckily nothing too sporty is going on near me. It has been humid and the girls seem to be celebrating with jazz hands. I may need to nix the swamp cooler in the next week as RH has been around 58% with temperatures of 74F.
The war with the gnats seems to have settled down.

Hey bud, I have enjoyed reading your diary. Your girls are looking lovely and shaping up to deliver you some nice buds. Also, by the looks of it, your lighting levels are coming into range. Your plants are looking their best late in the grow. Congrats.

You asked for commentary so I have some thoughts to share on how to improve your grow next time round.. Hope you don't mind. Its a topic close to my heart, ha ha. because I have had to deal with this issue in the past. Have you ever wondered why they are so small and the nodes are stacked so closely together? They have miniaturized in response to receiving too much light early on in the grow. Contrary to what someone told you, 52" is the right height for LEDs at seedling and early veg time. 12" between light and canopy is in the kill-your-shit zone even with a full canopy. I am using a PAR meter this round and I am finding it helpful to correctly gauge lighting levels. LED's can be difficult like this. Good luck bro and keep up the great work. I will enjoy watching those buds swell and mature.

@H_SOLO, It’s my second grow—thanks. It’s definitely a learning curve here because everyone has a different setup, environment, nutes, plus the plants are all so individual. Apparently the platinum cookies I grew on my first grow are bitchy even for the breeder I got the clone from.

Are you saying 52” is right for veg and 12” for bloom or something else? Thanks for stopping in and for sharing your experiences. Bear in mind I only have 136 W per LED. Can you recommend a par meter? Really any help is appreciated! I have an open mind and like to research but info on LED and growing weed is pretty unreliable.

@TheFairyBudMother, Check out my comments about LED growing on my latest diary. The trick with LEDs is to avoid the limitations of their limited light spread. You have managed to overcome this to some degree by having 2 fixtures. Excellent move on your part.

I am using at Hydrofarm Quantum PAR meter. These things are not cheap but this would seem to be the best value meter on the market and from my perspective, a worthwhile investment.

The PAR reading for seedlings is 80 - 100 micro moles. As a frame of reference, my fixture is dimmed to 50% and located 55" from canopy to achieve this. So far, this strategy is working for me. But this is early days for my grow so we'll see. Hope this info helps and good luck with the remainder of your grow, your girls are shaping up nicely. :-)
