Wow, a big week. Lots of changes. First of all these ladies stink, well actually the Jack and the Blueberry are reeking. The rest are mild. The ladies smell very very good, but opening the garage door despite the can filter system is like getting hit in the face. I actually like it, but really don't want guests smelling it despite the grow being legal. The Jack and the Blueberry started to show lightening of the deep green. I added a tsp of Bio-grow per gallon, (4-3-3). The blueberry greened back up and the Jack is almost back where I want it and will take another round. I have noticed with everything else being equal the Jack requires more water and nitrogen. The Blueberry just a bit more nitrogen. The remaining ladies appear solid. I shaved the ladies below the waist this am (you can see in the pics). I took a bit more than I wanted too, but they were getting their 70's bush back and I realize they will benefit in the long run. Always hard cutting off flower for me. I will say that the Blueberry and Diva has the most growth under the SCROG line and they will need some more trimming otherwise they will require a lot more trim time. I gave them each a 1/2 gallon of sugar water right after trimming to help energy of repair and added a fan to circulate below the SCROG. The lights needed to be raised again. With the different strains being different heights I just averaged out the distance per best guess, (of note: with the Straw Diesel and Jack H being a good 12" taller than the others I would grow these under the same light next time. The other plants variability in height is insignificant and could all be grown together easily. Overall they are coming along nicely. I may have to skip reporting next week as I am off in vacation again. However, my beautiful assistant will be feeding the ladies again and they are in good hands. With this being the start of week 5 of flower I am completely impressed with the genetics from Seedsman. Everyone one of them are solid. I have always used clones before this and I will not go back. The selection is poor, the genetics are watered down and I always have to place them in quarantine for disease and pests.
I want to say thank you to all those who are following. I somehow got a promotion to apprentice (Don't know how that came about???). I certainly don't feel much more knowledgeable. Anyway -as always I am open to comments and suggestions.
