Week 6:  Our tops came in, no Christmas trees for us!

Strains in the tents:  Russian Doll, Sour Key OG, God's Pussy and Pineapple Express (scroll down for details by strain).

Grow method:  Indoor SCROG (although the screen is not on yet) with LED.

LED Details:  2x California Lightworks 1100 + 2x California Lightworks 550, on our VEG A setting of 50: Red, 99 White, 99 Blue for 24 hours.

Gear we are using:  Pure Tents, California Lightworks 1100s and 550s LEDs and controller, Pure Pots (10 gallon), Promix HP, Dollar Store EZ Pods, Green House Powder Feed, BlueSky Organics Organic Reactor.

All plants are looking good (except the most recent God's Pussy seedling--making me seriously regret the EZ pods!). Most plants were topped last week and we can see the progress now with new bud sites growing in theire place.  I continued alternating our Powder Feed and Organic Reactor applications.
Again, because I am scrogging I will actually be removing the two weakest plants overall (and sending them somewhere else to grow).  In the end I will be left with 3 plants of each in my larger tents and 2 in my smaller tents.
  

Strain name:  Sour Key OG
Genetics:  Amnesia Haze X (Super Lemon Haze X OG Kush)
Flowering time:  8-9 weeks
Yield:  Heavy
Level of difficulty:  Medium
Notes:  Definitely my most vigorous overall.  I love Amnesia, and SLH and OG, so I can't wait for this one to come out.  You can also really see where the topping came in with 2 separate bud sites in the middle of each plant.  It is a high stress pruning technique and my one little plant on the left is healthy enough as you can see but growing in a weird mutant leaf formation.  Until I see big, lush, serrated leaves I will continue to baby that plant.  Nothing to be concerned about really (especially because it started a little later than the rest).

Strain name:  Pineapple Express
Genetics:  Big Bud X Skunk
Flowering time:  8 weeks
Yield:  Heavy
Level of difficulty:  Easy
Notes:  Everything looking healthy here!  In this tent you can really see that topping was effective for me.  Everything looks like it will progress into rounded little bushes.  In the next week or so I will move these over to the Sour Key OG tent (after the Sour Key OG gets split into the other 2 tents that currently have GP and RD).
 
Genetics:  Kush X Kush
Flowering time:  9-10 weeks
Yield:  Heavy
Level of difficulty:  Medium
Notes:  Not much progress on the little seedling.  I have decided to definitely not use those EZ Pods again, they basically turned to mud.  I will definitely be moving the healthy plant to another tent (again, that is not scrogging).  I will move 2 of my Sour Key OGs into this tent (and 2 into the Russian Doll tent).
 
Genetics:  Kuban Sativa x Northern Lights x AK-47
Flowering time:  8-9 weeks
Yield:  Medium
Level of difficulty:  Easy
Notes:  Yet another super healthy group and my favourite plant to grow (or at least the plant I grow the best with the most consistent results).  I usually grow my Doll in the tent the Pineapple Express is in, so once we start moving things around, this tent will have 2 of the Sour Key OGs, and the Doll will go to its regular home.
