Never grew this one before, but did smoke a test nug before I got the clone. Nice old school flavor, at least for kind bud in my region growing up, so I'm a fan. Not extremely flavorful, but is smooth and enjoyable. No dirt taste is the key for me. This was just a seed run. Garlic Storm x Buttermilk biscuits and selfing the GS.

Easily 1000-1500 seeds. Maybe i'll weigh 50 then divide total mass by that, but i don't care about exact number. This is based on a cropped picture and estimating lxw count in frame, which was 722 and maybe half of total seed.

9/10 - checks all boxes except bountiful yields. The nugs are dense, which helps make up for it, but in the end only a moderate yielding plant. This was just a seed run. GS x GS and GS x BB

Hey man thanks for the detailed comment on my question. I really appreciate it as I’m trying to learn.

The plant I showed I’ve been trying to decide if it is an autoflower or not. It’s been on an 18/6 light schedule since November 20. So it was important for me to know if she started to flower. I would expect an autoflower to be flowering by now I thought anyways. I plan to give her until January 10 to see any obvious signs of flowering and if not- then hit the switch to 12/12.
Thanks again! I’ll be following your diaries.

@greenAF, Those are effort trophies.. and tbh, you can give bad advice all month and win one of those, BWAHAH. Not that i would purposefully do such a thing... muahahaha.

Hi John hear ,,ringworm thanks for all the advice on the lighting you are :100: correct :+1:. what you don't see in the photos is I have 2 fce 3000 running so raised them and cut the power down 50 percent again thanks so much as a first time every thing is new a learning curve but with growers like u guys we will get there again thanks

@Ringoworm, Belated thanks.

Sorry, we don't get notifiactions from comments on profile here. And don't worry, you'll amp that baby up when you get to 12/12 phase (if photoperiods) and it'll really shine.. or just grom more autos to fill more space for 18/6 coverage :muscle:

Hi, thank you for your great answer yo my question. It's very much in line with my thinking. I simply raised the lights continue to 18/6 and plants got happier and sturdier.

@ganzigunnu, good to hear.. we don't get notifications to messages posted on main profile for future reference. Just below i missed GreenAF's message for nearly a week.

Can I pick your brain? you answered one of my questions.

@greenAF, Sorry, the comments on main profile do not give a notification. We chatted in DM since this posted right? if not, just dm me.

Hey. I do appreciate your feedback on my KNF "homemade" inputs.
I do respect your perspective.
As far as driving 10 hours to a beach is not ideal, I live next to one so I always say go local. Also what I do takes usually 10 minutes in total per month to make my KNF inputs. And yes it doesn't work for everyone, but to think 10 minutes is labor intensive is kind of not much work to me. Also I am a hardworking waterman, so what is labor intensive to me is totally different. Dredging oysters by hand is labor intensive.

Thank you again for your perspective, I wonder if you could check out my diary. I think it would change your mind.

:heart:

@Creepy_Steve,
Man you really are the best. You hit all the points I was looking for. Thank you.
So something like this
2022 SPIDER FARMER SE5000 LED Grow Light 480W 4x4ft 1680 Pcs Samsung LM301B Diodes Enhanced Red Lights UV IR Full Spectrum Uniformity Dimmable Daisy Chain Commercial 6 LED Bar Grow Lamp

a.co/d/hK4JDyA

I have a 3x3 tent.
Now if I get that lamp am I going to have to keep a closer eye on burning and overexposing the plants?
Cuz I have a 3x3 tent and I'll probably be growing two plants at a time. For some strains that might even be a stretch. Right?
AC Infiniti says it would fit three plants, but I can't see that. Seen online. They said I should be fine for two plans. And then others say sometimes one would definitely be able to fill that up. Again. This is literally the first try at anything like this so I don't know.
I think even if I can't afford that right now, I should just wait until I can. Because I was thinking the same getting an oversized light to help with the yield on the perimeters.

If you ever see them getting rid of gear that you can use DM me. I'll hook you up, your the man

@greenAF, LOL, do you know my history with AC Infinity? BWAHAHAH. They are average to above average lights with some nice features. you pay 10-20 extra? for the features. if they are useful to you, it may be worth those extra dollars.

i'd recommend something that has strips / bars as opposed to a quantum board-type setup. My light's frame is nearly as large as my 4x4 tent. My corners and edges grow better buds than a QB would because the light is better distributed throughout area. QB is an old idea that wasn't well-thought out. it doesnot take advantage of the LED tech by centralizing all the diodes.. in this case 4 QB welded to each other with a little hole in middle that will help a bit with heat, but you will still have more dramatic hot spots than a bar-style frame. (this is not bias)

regardless of my bias against ac infinity, those aren't bad lights. If they are around the price of the vipar XS-series or even a bit more, but not much, it's a fair deal too. if i recall, they have slightly better efficacy than the vipars. Efficacy is what you pay for in a light. it directly impacts longevity of the LED diodes. the closer you are to 0.25w/diode the better -- after 0.25w/diode it gets into diminishing returns, this watts/diode is also how they are tested and rated on samsung.com. anything above this reduces longevity. Anything above this advertising 50,000hours is lying a bit... it may last that long but it'll be far more diminished than 90% of original brightness, if run hotter/harder in those hours.

what bugs me with these led companies is that it might cost them (at bulk prices) minimally to have a diode count that reaches 0.25w/diode... it's $ 5-10 more on products selling for $ 1/watt or more... it's a minimal cost but they are too stingy to do it right... for 5 dollars more profit, lol, as if they wouldn't just mark it up even more.

@Creepy_Steve, doubt you do but I have a ac infinity controller 69, carbon air filter, and if I upgrade light an AC Ion board S33
