@bob31 so you let 5 nodes grow and then back to 4 or do you top/fim the 4th node down to 3? I really don’t want to eff anything up cuz they just look so damned good as they are… I’m thinking I might just let 'em grow and do some lst as they go. I can already see new under growth coming out on the 1st & 2nd nodes… They’re gonna be monsters!!
I watered with pH’d water to very yellow which should be 6.0 - 6.5. I gave a full watering as both plants were dry all around the fabric pots all the way down the length of my forefinger. I read somewhere that a rule of thumb for watering is to water to 20% runoff and check that pH. Somewhere else I read that for every gallon size pot, water 1 quart… So my 1st try with that idea went like this… 3 gallon pots=3 qts water… however I’m using a 12 oz glass and each pot asked for 4 glasses of water to 20% runoff which should be = to 48 oz or 1.5 qts… 1/2 the amount on the guide I saw. I’m thinking part of that is the fact they’re still small. As they grow I’m sure they’ll drink more water.
pH in = 6.0-6.5
runoff = ~4.5/5.0-5.5 or so
I have no idea what the pH for the runoff should be at for ffof but this is obviously fairly acidic… is that what I’m looking for?
on my laptop now, will upload pics in a bit.
