The Little Big Micro Grow: the beginning of the end!

Greetings Again Pollution Excreters,

So the beginning of the end has arrived and the chopping started, I am well pleased with most of the results :)
There was a few late/slow starters that didn’t like the nutrient strength at the start and got a bit stunted (I consider them stunted, you may not lol) but will still produce a good size nugget or two. I like them to end somewhere between 4in and 6in tall, any smaller I consider it a loss of bud and if they get any bigger they become super hard to keep alive.

Summer is getting a bit stupid here already, we are meant to have four days over 40C during the Christmas period, that is gonna be hard to cope with, I am hoping to have most of the rest cut before then, the seeded ones will need a bit longer but once most are down I can run just one small light in the cab.
I want to make sure that the seeds are nice and ripe, the Jems should be close now as they were done a week before the ThinkDuurty, they look to be large seeds.

14 December 2016, Day 66, the chopping starts!
A mostly picture update with a few notes :)
The plants are color coded with stones.
Blue color stones are “SugarBaker”
Black color stones are “Future 86”
Silver color stones are “Silver Run” :)
White color stones are “MoonStone”….well the stones are sort of white….

Picture time :)

The rest of the micro’s should be down by the end of this week, well I hope they are.

Stay Medicated People,
Stunted Christmas

    Looks great, stunted. Hey, could you elaborate a bit more on the comments about height more than 6″ makes them super hard to keep alive..? Curious what your experience has been…do you mean in terms of keeping larger plants watered up enough? I know you hand watered these.

    Thanks for your feedback, I’d like to try growing micro or well somewhat micro-ish. Haven’t made a final decision on how to set it up, curious to learn more about your experiences.
    :yoda:

    Btw, I found a site with some cool micro and big micro pot set ups, they are relatively cheap too. I liked that they follow the idea of narrow but tall rootzones. Here’s a link and some pics, any feedback?
    :peace:

    I kinda like all those long cones with coco, then run a wick out the bottom. That rack is 12″x24″, holding up to 98 cones. Cones are 1.5″ across and either 5.5″ or 8.25″ deep. Kinda badass! I’m used to soil though so also looking at two of those 16 banger trays with the larger pots.

    Anyway, wanted to share what I saw, peace bro and hope it’s a good new year ahead for you.
    highfive :respect:

    Greets bro, when they start to get big they become very thirsty, it is Summer here and it gets over 40c on a regular basis, yesterday the cab was at 36c and 64% RH!
    So its hot and the plants are hot so they drink like crazy, the bigger they are the more they drink. The monsters, 10+ inches tall are nasty, they need to be watered and then watered again and again and again on and on lol. PH is a pain and will cause all sorts of lockout probs and other issues.
    Those tiny little shot glasses dont have much coco in them for the plants to grow roots in, I will get some root pics next time I am in there :)

    I had a look at those deep pots and they would be great to grow in, not exactly shot glasses but that dont matter, I would go for the D60 ones as they are deeper, plants should grow very well in them!
