    Guess i never gave a proper update on this lol...

    Yeild was around 6.5oz dried and cured total. Wife loves it, i was worried during cure, thought the aroma would never change. However, after 2 weeks curing (boveda helped out alot) it smells very piney with a peppery herbal undertone. Fun experience, already 3 weeks into round 2, so hopefully it all goes well again. Heres a few pics

    All chopped down around 4/20. Ended up around 6oz dried and cures. I picked up some more seeds and better equipment. Those vipars are ok for 90 bucks... But 2 in a 4x4 is horrible lol. The buds seem dense until I chop them. Too fluffy, so I'm adding 400w of DIY cobs, seems like they are getting great reviews, im excited for the next go.

    Awesome haul!
    Ya I found that with the c99, nice big buds but not a whole lot there . The pink caddys are very dense and still sativa heavy strain. All about the strain.

    What type of cobs are you going with?!
    I noticed a huge diffrrence in resin output going from the normal led lights to cobs. Mine are cheap ones but wow they can still do the job.
    Also what seeds did you go with?

    Wagon, ill update this later with a reply, however I need some assistance by anyone that sees this. I wouldve posted in the problems section, but it seems I can't create a thread still.

    I bought 2 1.5 cubic feet bags of FFOF, and I didn't realize until I popped my seeds that the soil is infested with mites. Attached is a photo, from my own research it looks to be "good" mites that eat bad ones and larvae etc.

    I've got 150 lady bugs on standby, ready to go to work, however I'm reconsidering getting rid of these guys if they are beneficial until whatever in the soil attracted them, is gone. They have yet to touch the seedlings, they just look icky and crawl around.

    What do you guys and gals think? Release the lady's or keep these guys around?

    If they are a type of predator mite then I'd just let them do their thing. They will leave or die off when there's no food left.

    That's what I was thinking... I hear the ladybugs can last 2 months with proper care, ill keep them handy until needed, or until the mites die off, ill let them out to clean up the dead bodies lol.


    Anyways, I'm going with a timber grow light, 400w vero27 cobs. I also got a oscillating fan and 6" inline fan with filter. Should be all I need as long as I'm using a 4x4 tent at this point.

    I've got all autos, after these I'm going to try photoperiod. Strains are Girl Scout Cookies, Amnesia Haze, Pineapple Express, "kush auto", white widow, toof decay, and sour hound. Wife's picks lol, I still cant smoke..,

    Nice clean setup!
    Just started reading about your light.

    Most common mites are the two spotted spider mites. You'd see white dots on the leaves and the little buggers on the underside. I'm dealing with them still, they managed to survive in the veg tent. The infestation is very light but still a pain.

    All your plants looks healthy. Take a closer look for any damage. Hard to see from the pic but I don't see any
