Sorry....I had pics to update and deleted them trying to bugger about.....I’ll get some more up later

The difference between the strains is very very obvious now.

the matcha is lovely squat indica that despite my failure to control my environment continues to thrive....a really bushy number that throws up loads of runners....typical indica egg shaped buds forming.

however the SBG has paid the price for a lack of control.

she grows like a sativa....and controlled properly would produce great towers of bud.....I had to keep the EC lower to maintain the status quo....they have got a bit stretchy.

I considered A/C but the heatwaves are so infrequent for me a change of lights seems a better investment for my medicine now. :skin_up:

san bacio gelato.....this one is coping just fine....I have got slight burn on the tips of the others but that’s over by the looks of it lol and my environment is back on track for the moment. The girls continue to feed well around 1.3 with the top up set to 0.8 but tbf I had to add some silver bullet to be on the safe side as the top up has no pump and relies on me stirring it daily.....it’s also been getting warmer than I would like.

The Matcha really is a lovely looking thing. The shade of green is to die for. Easy to control and as you say throws out a good number of tops.

You’re looking well there owd chap, beaut :yep:

i did wonder about using an aero prop for seeds, but never seen anyone else try it. 

how are they getting on? Are they root it cubes not a bit too wet in there Ken, or have you used this method before?

HAve you just got it running constantly, or off a timer or what?

 

good luck with these mucka. 

Bob u wont believe this go try it i did...

Cut cuttings and put in glass of water leave em under ya plant near pot. Change water after 7days day 10 roots will be allover

 

Its stupid i didnt believe it lol. So never too wet i made my tub with 8splinkler emitters what i do is cut a hole in netpot base put the emitter in then it shoots watrr inside the net pot.

 

My seedlings shot 20 roots out in 1 go not 1 main taproot lol..

 

 

Them are some damn tight noded plants

Alright there @zen-ken

 

The water garden is looking spot on :yep:
 

Have you made the decision to switch your lights solely due to the heat?

A mate or mine has an aircon system, it runs around 11kw so as you can image it absolutely  guzzles the leccy, bloody weather eh :haveadab:

 

Or is there other reasoning behind the move, and finally what lights have you decided to go for?

 

Take it easy. Jj:yinyang:

Mainly heat control bro but others as well.

i can’t draw too many watts and I’m pushing it already tbf. Head height and the fact the growstar shade is completely inappropriate and should be in a tent made my mind up....the lighting is very unbalanced. 

I have ordered a couple of migro arrays to plug the gap until I can add some dialaduck offerings to the ones I already have....was gonna keep the 315cmh in.

Should stop the chiller kicking in so much as well. 
hope u and urs are very well :smokin:

Tbh ....,the SBG is a monster 

the bud structure has caught me off guard tbf but I can see if u have the head room you are being rewarded with what I’m seeing in places.

 

Head space is premium for me so the matcha is easier to tame and would fair better under LED due to its shear number of runners.....but the SBG looks something special despite my environmental issues.

DISASTER!!!!!!!! :wallbash::wallbash::wallbash:

 

fucking bud rot and root rot......I knew the temps were gonna get me eventually 

 

done a quick chop.....left two running as they are no where near ready 

 

finger hash is delicious.....got some fire bud ......but this is not my best effort 

 

despite all of this not a hermie in sight.  I think that’s the real testament to these strains....ignore my shite attempt lol LEDs are going on next week so this won’t be happening again !!!
