haha yeah CK. And it's only from two plants. I moved the other two of to my outdoor garden! They're almost as large as these ones too.

Thanks for the vibe I need it here.

Yes it is cheaper than glass. It is lighter and has better thermal insulation properties than glass of the same thickness (because it is hollow) and yes, it will go yellow eventually. But when? that depends on the quality of the anti UV coating. Normally between 5 to 20 years for worst to best quality. These ones are guaranteed for 10 years.

I did not quite understand the question. Do you mean weeds grow inside the PC sheets? I haven't experienced that. Neither here nor in commercial PC greenhouses I have visited. But I haven't seen really old ones.

lol Mel right now trimming is the least of my worries. A friend of mine has made a nice DIY electric trimmer + vacuum. I will borrow that when the time comes...

Indeed it is SL xD

UPDATE:

It seems that my woes are finally over. I am pretty sure that the Ice is back in flower. And the WW looks like she intends to follow suit. A surprise, as we are now at peak daylight length!

It's too early to speak with any certainty. Will update again with pics.

Hi, very nice plants,just thought I would say that I also have plants that tried to flower in mid to late spring.Early skunk,germinated in late December.Now back into veg,I trimmed the bud back to leafy nodes when I noticed them producing new leafy growth. I have to make sure they have plenty of air flowing around the poly tunnel as they have had some mold attack at the stem of two of the seven.The weather has been extremely wet and damp for June,the worst on record.

Hi dylmadness,

Thanks for sharing your experience. Actually I was thinking of trimming the older leaves and buds a bit. Maybe a job for this weekend. The summers are hot and dry here, so to maintain a healthy level of humidity has been a bit of challenge and thankfully there are no signs of mold anywhere as of yet.

Some branches have decent smoke-able buds on them. I'll make sure those are harvested before flowering kicks in again. But with this humidity I will not bother to trim all of the buds, if that can be helped. Any thoughts on that?

Cheers

OG

Hi folks

Well I guess an update is long overdue.

Both ladies are now deep into flowering. Resin production has been phenomenal and the buds are numerous and large.

Here's a few pics taken earlier today, the ICE didn't have favorable light so most of the pics are from the WW:

WW :









And here is an interesting looking cotyledon from a bagseed Sativa:

Wow! Excellent work OG, Spears of bud everywhere, what more could a man ask for! Keep an eye on any yellow /brown/dying leaves in among the buds, they are a hot bed for mould and fungus.

Hey alecky
Thanks for the encouragement and advice man :-)

Luckily the humidity doesn't naturally go over 25% this time of the year here so the risk of mold is relatively low but I'm keeping the plants as clean as I can and an extractor is also  working around the clock.

Because of the re-vegging period my plants went through, they actually had a lot of foliage when they began to flower and they seemed to like shedding the excess leaves no matter how much I fed them. I keep a daily routine of clearing the yellowed leaves off the plants but I've not seen any sign of mold yet.
