Thanks a lot man. I'm really pleased with my results thus far. It's my second grow - first with CFLs which gave me surprisingly great results (had a grow log up here but had to delete it for safety reasons :jefferson:). I figured I got such bangin' results with CFLs that I might as well step it up and decided to upgrade to a 250w MH/HPS for the second grow.

To be honest, I don't even really have a ventilation system.

I've got the 250w hanging in my closet, started with the MH for veg and switched to HPS for flowering. The max temperature in there has been 90F with the HPS full blast and no fans whatsoever.

I put a small desk fan in the back left corner of the closet facing upward, and a box fan at a 45 degree angle facing up toward the light from outside the closet.

I then sealed off the vent in the room that the closet is in so it's usually a steady 60-70 degrees in the room, even if we have the heat on in the house, and a steady 80-85 in the closet. I picked up a $15 reptile aquarium thermometer that has a probe that I dangle just over top of the canopy, and I haven't had any heat issues.

Another thing I highly recommend for a small <4 plant 250w grow is a closet air ionizer. I picked one up on ebay for $20 shipped and i have it hanging at the top of the closet right over the canopy running constantly and it takes care of about 90% of the smell issues. However, if you're in the room with the closet in it, it definitely smells, but that's to be expected without a carbon scrubber, etc.

In my specific situation, this setup works perfectly. As much as I would love to set up a legitimate, state-of-the-art growroom, I cannot modify the drywall/ventilation system here as I will not be living in this spot much longer. In the hopefully near future I will be living in a state where I can legally cultivate my medicine.





In any case, the 250w has given me incredible results so far and I really can't wait to see my final dry yield. You will love your 250w setup with or without an elaborate ventilation system. Of course, a nice vent system is always a good idea if you're growing where it's not exactly *legal* and you have neighbors who are... how shall I put it... *narcs*.



_______________________________________________________________________________________



Still barely any amber trichs. I see maybe 1 for every 100 or so. Mostly all of the fan leaves have yellowed and the leaves in the buds that have trichs on them are starting to get yellow and brittle. Just about all of the pistils are red/brown. I'm really confused and not sure if I should just chop her, or keep her goin until the trichs start to turn. It looks like a lot of the bud leaves on the colas are going to get crumbly and brown here soon.

I started flushing about a week, week and half ago, and have been feeding plain water since. To me, the plant looks just about finished, the buds are fat, dense, covered in trichs, pistils are all red/brown, and the majority of leaves are yellowed and dying. It's just that maybe 2-3% of the trichs are amber. 95% are cloudy, maybe 2% clear.

WTF IS GOING ON WITH MY MAUI WOWIE?

Hmm, for vent right now I have one ocsiclating fan in the room pointed on the plants then I have another in the door way of my closet blowing air into the closet. I was hoping i wouldn't have to cut up the walls for a vent system andfrom what you say about your set-up it turns out I might now have to, awesome :thumbup:

O and some pics of the room would be great:grin:

Maui Wowie Harvested 11/28 - 64 days of 12/12.


I know she could have gone a little longer but something was happening with her leaves drying out and crumbling and I honestly want to focus on my two other plants - Unknown Heady and Monster Sativa - they're both looking fucking out of this world, and actually should be ready for harvest sooner than I thought. The Kmart soil plants yield is all but gone except for a nice 2.5g bud that I'll be curing.

So without further adieu..



*notice the water bottle on the left side for size comparison



the trimming process



the booty



jizz



Did a qwiso extraction on the trim and yielded 1.5g of quality hash. The buds are currently hanging and will be going into jars as soon as the stems snap.

Will report back with dry weight and updates on my last two ladies.

The colas on the the two other plants make the Maui Wowie buds look like toothpicks. I'll definitely get new pictures up tomorrow now that there's much more room in the closet.

Little update on the last 2 plants.

Day 67 of 12/12.

Whole closet:



Unknown Heady:



Sativa (you can see how it's been supercropped several times, hence the goofy shaped bud):




And last, and least as well, the force flowered from seed plants (I trimmed off all fan/sugar leaves to add them in along with the trim from the Sativa and Unknown heady so I can get a monster chunk of qwiso hash. These plants were just a test, and if they each yield a single gram I'll be pleased):





Hoping to harvest these ladies in about a week, but only time will tell.

Total dry weight from Maui Wowie: 48g (roughly 1.7oz)

I'm fucking ecstatic with my results from this 250w HPS.

The Maui Wowie was the smaller of the 3 large plants, so I can't wait to see what the final dry weight is for all of them.






So as of right now:


Kmart Kush: 7g dry
Maui Wowie: 48g dry
                 
Total: 55g dry





I'm assuming the final 2 plants will weigh more than the Maui Wowie, so I'm predicting a final weight of about 5.5oz give or take from all 4 plants, with about 5-7g from the 5 force flowered plants.



Final Dry Weight Guess: 160g

Anybody wanna take a shot at guessing the final weight of all plants combined?

    #503414 - 12/06/10 02:59 PM (9 years, 7 days ago)

Chopped the unknown heady today. Looks like a slightly larger harvest than the Wowie, so I decided to leave about 7g worth of buds on the plant until they get about 75% amber trichs just to see what type of high I prefer. Did the same thing with the Wowie, except I only left about 1g on there.

The Sativa is going strong and loves all the extra light she's getting, however I did break one of my CFL's I had in there for extra light, but eh.. fuck it.

I'm dreaming about that 160g total harvest. Let's hope it actually turns out to be that much.

So, my grow is complete (technically).

I found a good bit of amber trichs on the "Sativa" and decided to chop her down.

The Unknown Heady will be dry and ready for jarring tomorrow night, and the "Sativa" will be dry and ready for jarring Sunday morning. Will provide pictures of each strain once I jar them.

The yield looks like it's gonna hit my goal of 160g total for the entire grow, but I don't wanna count my chickens as they say.

Anyway, here's the yield for the Unknown Heady and Sativa (Unknown on the front two strings, Sativa on the back string):


And check out these fatty colas from the Sativa plant:



The Maui Wowie is curing nicely as is the small 2.5g nug I have left of the Kmart Kush.

I left the Maui Wowie plant with a 1g bud attached, the Unknown Heady with about 7g buds attached, and the force flowered from seed plants in the closet with the light going just to see how the high differs when you let plants go for extended periods of time.

Was a great grow, and I definitely see the benefits of MH/HPS over CFL, as well as benefits of premium soil over shitty generic brand soil. Gonna be my last grow for a good while 'til I move to a state where I can do it all legal like Bugsy Siegel, as Snoop would say.

On a side note, anybody need a complete 250w MH/HPS grow setup? hahah


Planning on posting the final dry weight of the Kmart Kush, Maui Wowie, Unknown Heady, and Sativa this Sunday. Then the log will essentially be done until I decide to chop the remaining couple buds and force flowered plants, and I'll get dry weights and bud pics up of them as well.
