For you Mr. Nice Guy...
Again been very busy, sorry for the delay...
So we missed week 7, and week 8 is half way through. Today is technically day 52 of flowering.
I did a partial harvest of the plant chosen to be a mother. The buds were rock solid after 47 days, and I had to redo the math on the days flowering just to be sure. If this mother plant looks the way it does after 47 days, I might get an extra harvest per year. The 2 other AK's just don't have what it takes to pass the mother in growth now, even if I let them go another 10 - 20 days, which I am.
Was dealing with some smell issues for the last bit. I was getting to a point where I could smell the bastards from almost every room in the house at some point in the day. Totally not acceptable. I was probably due to change my filters, but I only have 3 left, and I want to wait for them to go on sale again. They are furnace filters with a carbon layer in the middle, that I remove to use on my system. They go on sale from time to time for $7.00, but are regular $30.00.
So in the meantime I hooked up my Ozone generator that I had still not tested yet.... WOW. THE BEST SOLUTION IN THE WORLD FOR ODOR CONTROL! I heard alot of good and bad things about ozone before I made my purchase, and let me say it's impressive. I run it for 10 mins an hour. All smells totally gone. I stay away from the room till about 20 to 30 mins after it shuts off, because the excess ozone will be dead by that time. Still don't believe me? We had a birthday party for our 9 year old at the house today... About 50 people here, not 1 word was said to me about anything that smelled anything remotely close to MJ. And that's with stuff drying....
So as it stands I have 64 buds drying, mostly from the AK chosen as mother.
The first NL has about 2 to 3 more weeks, the twin towers are getting huge. Missed a nute schedule or 2 for the NL as I was concentrating on flushing the AK. So I am trying to get the NL back on track.
Here are a few shots over the last 2 weeks, followed by what I have drying in the drying chamber now.
Will update over the next few weeks as I harvest/dry/weigh. Then we will let this thread go dead and open up a proper grow journal in the right area now that the growcab room is almost complete!
Till next time skunkers, long live Ozone generators (open to any questions on the ozone subject!)

No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
