It was dark when I finished for the day. 24-15 gal containers and 47-5 gal containers. Pictured is a partial of the 15s. It was my intention to go all 15s and 20s in the beginning of this thread but because of grow area I went with 15s exclusively. A last minute wrench in the gears was delivered last week when I went to pick up the balance on my sunshine commitment. With only the 5 bales I already had to work with and 24 containers to fill and over 100 plants to accommodate I had no choice but to commit a large portion of the grow to 5 gal containers.Attached File  20170513_152553.jpg   162.14KB   1 downloads


I managed to get many of my prime variety plants into the 15s as well as my 7 pot burgundy bonchi which fared very well during the whole hardening off processes.
Will post more pics when the new days light arrives.

It definitely appears to be dampening off. I have attempted twice this year to clone the top half of an infected plant with no success. If it is dampening off, the stem will harden up and the plant will wilt and die. Time will tell, but that looks like text book dampening off.

Was a hard frost Sunday night. Ice all over the tarp Monday morning around 5:20 when I removed it. It was roughly 34° at the time. Plants are all looking great and now 4 days into hardening off. Rain was in the forecast for Saturday but by the time it gets here, that may be pushed to Monday. That would be great cause the next weekend is out of the question for planting. Started potting up sale plants this week. They will take of like crazy just being in the solo cups with the Mykos. pics to follow when phone becomes available again.

By the looks of your pics, it appears the media is not retaining any moisture. Those pots look dry and the plants appear to exhibit severe dehydration. The pots also appear to be about 3 gal in size and I had to water every day when I grew in them during our summer.(Not nearly the extreme you would experience in Mexico).
