@jonyoudyer these are the beans from the greenhouse BM plant from last summer. These are the only 2 that survived the aphids.They did well in 1 gallon pots! One is on day 20 of flower. And the other is like day 7. I'm definately going to grow some of these in larger containers.

Lemon Drop Cookies day 22 of flower. Look how far the trichomes are spreading on the leaves. I have 2 more LDC females down in my Veg/Auto room in bigger containers. I might keep one as a mother for pulling clones. They are just getting back on their feet, after my brief aphid infestation. I am already looking forward to the other Dark Horse genetics that I have. Brazilian Bombshell (Strawberry Banana x Cherry Pie) x (Lemon Skunk x Alien Kush F2)

As you can see this LDC has just started to flower. She has a great frame and a flat canopy of fresh growth and 5 gallons of root space. Aphids did a number on her but i am growing her out anyway. Should still produce some nice smoke.

For those who haven't seen a monster-cropped cannabis plant. The Big Mack above is a great example of a monster-cropped plant. There is explosive growth and unruly branching during the re-vegging phase. Giving the grower a canvas to train and build a power house.

I just can't get rid of the WPM on the BM. But I seem to be controling it with lactobacillus mixed with Green Cleaner. The lactobacillus seems to be working as a preventative.
I am on the fence as to feeding methods for growing in coco coir. I see alot of guys bottom feeding. I have tried it but started to get worried about lockout. So I raised them all so they can drain to waste. When I ran a low EC feed through, the outflow was like 3500 ppm. Oh yea.... the BM clone is top fed but I left her in her tray. The only benefit I can see from bottom feeding would be money saved on fertilizer. I would love to hear from you if you have experience with bottom-feeding or not. The reason I chose to leave the BM in its waste feed is that I have been working this line for a bit now, so I am comfortable with its needs.

Have a great week !

You're integrated fest management definitely needs to address battery mildew and I'll give you a big hint.

If you can't deal with the humidity having enzyme sprays that destroy and feed upon the powdery mildew are one option however the simple milk trick? I'm sure you can acquire some normal milk and mix it according to the directions.

Generally it's not much milk but the enzymes in the milk take care of this situation before you even have an issue.

Since you are learning and having issues you'll find that certain strains absolutely are more of a magnet for diseases and issues this is the reason why I advocate growing known solid strains. Especially blue City Diesel because you never have this issue. However when you have your integrated pest management system down. You will see.

Personally absolutely advise the milk.

Awesome tent action going on here.

Thanks man, humidity isn't the issue, I almost need a humidifier. I was under the impression that lactobacillus was milk enzymes on steroids...but hey if I continue to have a problem I will try the milk.

Ipm is easier addressed pre issues...

Yes milk. And yeah maybe switch out later and see if it was only that kind... I've had that issue before.

Lots of airflow will help with PM. Make sure all the leaves are moving.

Yessir, 14" fan AC Infinity 4" exhaust
And the fan was just cleaned
if needed i have a 6" and Carbon filter...hmmm maybe the filter would help filter the spores. I dont think so

Some strains are prone tho. I’ve used an ozone generator when the lights are on with great success. Don’t need it anymore now I’m using double-ended hps.

They are looking really good, I can say PM is a Bitch,

I use to bottom feed but say much as I don't have enough experience

I've never touched anything that comes out of a plastic bottle when it comes to my plants.... so a lot of your issue are issues I've never even had to think about.
That said, your flowers are already bigger than mine ever get... so there are pros and cons :))

Seems like the Greenleaf nutes are working out. I know LB works great in VEG, but never iused it during flower. I would imagine just the green cleaner alone will work great, but keep me posted on your results.

Oh yea, I'm getting to the point when mixing ny feed I dont even have to PH. Even though i still do. Im going to try not to spray anything else on them unless i absolutely have to. Last treatment was last night at lights out.
