    So i started with a mylar emergynce blanket covered closet it was nice but to close to the neighbors and it was very cramped..
    My own little set up i pieced together..
    using advancednutriants jungle juice and a mixture i found in a video on you tube.. i noticed i only need half of what he was using or i would start getting burnt leaves..

  3. Nothing wrong but you are going to overgrow your space. :D
  4. i know :( there was a delay with my nutes and a large power outage... i had to swap locations for 24 hours and then my nutes took forever to get to me.
    my plan is to pray and maybe tie some shit down
  5. do some topping, trim a bit, give her a week to recover, flip lights. that'll help you with controlling her massive uncontrollable bush. :ey:
    otherwise she looks excellent, really good for a first grow. keep doing whatever it is you're doing
  6. I ended up just tying it down in places. I feel like it's gonna be a battle from here on out, but it's a lesson learned. I will def get individual buckets next time and pay attention to speed of growth.I swear there were a couple days I got almost 2 inches in one day.Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
  7. So small update.My arms are getting worse so please excuse any sloppiness.I put the plants to flower two days ago. I I'm havoc a problem with high humidity. I got a tiny dehumidifier but it clearly isn't going to do the trick.So I connected the intake side of my inline fan to some ducting ran it into the grow tent to take the humid air from inside the tent it runs through my light and then put the window. It seems to have dropped but I'm still at about 60% I'll check to see how it goes otherwise I'll have the air run thru the light directly into the tent and set up a duct to push air from the tent out the tent tends to be about 75-80 degrees and they are doing well..

  8. LOL I say you have officially overgrown your space. Looks great!
  9. Yeh I still have about 2 feet up but I'm gonna keep tying things down I have space in the side and in the back Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
  10. Update! I'm fucked!Yup I should have put them to flower at a foot tall.I got some string "trellis" from lows basically is a large net with 4 inch holes. ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1391376160.671757.jpg I'm tying it down with bulldog clips onto the lid since I have to move the plants once a week.Can I get some pointers I'm using these tote buckets how the hell do you change the nutes without pulling the whole lid off..I have one bucket that had a water level meter tube on the side but if I use it to drain it still doesn't drain the whole thing.I think after this I'm switching to a 5 bucket system ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1391376323.747836.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1391376340.399770.jpg Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
  11. Soooo I'm not even proud of this... This weed smells so good.. But it's clearly out of room I'm just gonna let it finish it's course and start over... It's only has about 5 weeks left ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1392343710.856167.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1392343720.038006.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1392343729.370508.jpg

    I trim a bit and pulled everything back it's only a few more weeks then I can try again

  13. Overcrowding your space is a good problem, because you can trim back the growth you don't want. Lessons learned for next time file... mine is overflowing...

    The truth is that you're doing quite well! One more thing; you want higher RH for most of your flowering cycle. 60% is actually on the low side, until you get to the end and flush. That's when you want it dry in there.
    sorry whats "RH"  lol. also i got some new pics ill throw up.
    spent 4 hours trimming and cleaning them up took the net off and hand tied each branch to pull it to the side so it wouldnt be pressing against the glass on the light..

  16. RH= relative humidity

    I run mine pretty high, up around 65-75%, temps around 82-83, and I add CO², but that's because I'm in a sealed room and the plants deplete what's in there in minutes without it.
  17. I have a small co2 you can see in the pictures. My humidity does get out of control furring the weekend and lights on I leave the room open but during the week I keep it closed my heat isn't really a problem. Is hanged up the venting a bit, instead of it going str8 thru the light I detached the exhaust end so it go from fan thru the light then into the tent and then I let it push out the tent via an exhaust. You can see in the 3rd from the last photo. I'm hoping it will actually raise the temp a bit and dry the air as well..

  18. If you want to raise your temps, turn the fan off. Then to control them, use a thermostat to control the fan, rather than try and balance things without one.

    im on a budget :)  but im actualy pretty happy with the setup just by disconecting the exhaust out i was able to rais the temp to a nice 75 and dry it out in there to a little less then 50%  and in one day there is a huge about 40-50% increase in tricombs. i may be exagerating but its enough to tell that this is part ICE... also im using a nice combination of nutes and it seems to be working out well... i know the Ice strand doesnt have a huge dank smell but my house is starting to reak... good thing im legal :p

  20. Once again I'm running out of room but I don't think I have to worry to much about it growing taller. This is almost the end of week five of bud ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1393556385.328408.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1393556398.014231.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1393556406.627789.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1393556418.762841.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1393556433.394885.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1393556441.981548.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1393556465.664548.jpg ImageUploadedByGrasscity Forum1393556473.300885.jpg
