Mineral heavy mix:

Screen has filled out, can't really do much more tucking under now:

Going very strong. On the quality of growth I'm seeing with no additions I've decided that the mineral mix will be my only and last amendment of any description, and I will only add the amount I have mixed. More for structure and longevity than anything. After that nothing but cover crop seeds, post harvest leaves/stems and straw. Wish me luck!

Also decided to stick with scrog for the next few grows. Keeps things manageable and I think given my current needs suits a single 315w cmh setup. In time I'll move the bed out, give it a couple of feet all around and use my twin 630 to grow a big tree just for kicks really. But this little 315w 80cmx80cm is smashing it at the moment.

Thanks @zen-ken - the net is a bit crowded tbh and I would have thinned and tied down a bit more, but I've been away for a bit.

VPD is bang on - have had absolutely spot on temps and RH with this setup. I think the large volume of soil provides a buffering effect for temp and humidity. 

 

Seed mix is ready for my planned fallow season. Quite excited about that tbh!

 

Despite perfect environment and no light leaks the sour dosidos has hermied. Not impressed with that - 2/6 hermies for this strain and its certainly not stress! I'm keeping an eye - have thinned out all the lowers to make that easy. If it continues its getting lopped.

Little growth at all in the vetch and fenugreek as the canopy established so fast. Will give it a bit longer between whacking plants in next time!

Canopy got a bit neglected in terms of tucking as I was away for a couple of days so could be more even, but not unmanageable. Node spacing is further than usual - most likely the much greater distance I have kept from the light. If the pics look weird its because I had to use panorama mode on my phone to get it all in so close.

The tops are looking fairly numerous:

The Meat the Cookies has that certain something about it that says its going to be a really special plant. Don't know quite what it is but you can just tell sometimes. The smell from the rubbed stems is phenomenal and there are micro trichs all over it. Smell is gorgeous bubblegum/fruit.

The devil cookies (which is a cracking rosin cut) isn't a plant I would generally entertain sharing a regular pot with other strains. In my experience its hungry AF and would normally be very obvious. In the no till, it appears to regulate its demands far more effectively, and isn't notably hungrier looking. I did have a passing phase of reddening stems, but this appears to have self resolved and in my opinion can be a fairly normal part of many strains growth/colouring. All looking very happy. RH 60-65, soil temp 20.1-20.8c, air temp 23-28c.

Scoured the plants today just checking for any issues at all. Absolutely spotless. Cracking form and robustness, proud shiny rigid leaves. Stems strong and flexible. All extremely healthy. Aside from some clone leaves in the deep understory, this was genuinely the only flaw I could find in any single leaf.

So I'm confident the soil mix is right.

Frosting up to the expected levels on meat the cookies. Hoping for a bit of colour later on. Think this is week 4?

Sour dosidos and devil cookies not looking too shabby.

Overall plenty of colas, and quality does seem to be better due to light being that far away, yield remains to be seen!
