You should have better success in the loft given the time of year they’ll be flowering.

 

Best of luck with the grow..

Cheers gents, currently maintaining 44-51%rh and 22-28’c between lights off to on, also an 18/6 light cycle. My roofs just been replaced so the loft is pretty pitch black thanks to the new felt. Using a  3 day water cycle of 1.5ltrs each (10ltr pots)and feed every other water 1ml per ltr micro and grow they really do get bigger every day it’s quite a shock considering im so not a green fingered type.
 

got to get a loft ladder put in tho getting the steps out the van every night and checking them evening and morning then putting them bk in van is annoying the hell out of me.

 

if this goes ok I’ll rebrace a few joist and put two vent tiles in for proper extraction/ intake and some proper sockets and get a tent up there. Don’t want to throw money at it just yet.

Day 29 above soil, decided with the weather due and still waiting for my extraction the loft may get a bit to hot today so brought the girls out to the garden for some natural light and a bit more lst, gave them a little flush last night as a few tips looked a bit burnt and a lower leaf was yellow on the dr jack... look a little perkier today

Tradegy has struck my dr jack, she was the front runner too, I’ve had to take them down from the loft as it’s too hot and humid and I don’t have the kit to control it all..

 

. brought them down to the garden yesterday and this morning to chill in the sunshine in cooler climbs.

Any way didn’t notice and damage when I put them out, but wife rings when I’m on my way back from work to say they are in the shade should she move them... of course I said!

she did and somehow the main stem has snapped at the lst tie, I tied to the fabric pot handles and was picking up from the bottom.

 

i think she picked up from the handle and opposite force had neigh on severed it.

 

ive pressed it together and taped her up as per info I’ve seen on here but I’m really worried she will stall badly now, and just as I think she’s starting to flower.

 

started seeing those little white hairs pop up

 

anyone with auto experience had this and still seen results? large.DC4E96F5-18E6-43FC-AE89-0535F52ADD3C.jpeglarge.6BA66202-C6F7-4E15-9765-F730BA8C7831.jpeg

week 5 both starting to flower, uped water to 2.5 ltrs every 3 days if dry, added some bloom now to the grow and micro. The Ammo with the snapped stem has stalled a bit but still looking healthy.  What are people’s opinions on defoliating? Looking a bit bushy but don’t want to stress them out
