Hey @Sirsmokesalot1 I like your handle.
What are you working with? Tent, lighting, media, nutrient, water, etc.,
Looks like your SOG is working really well. Canopy is even and ready for the stretch. Are you using any additional deep red, far red and UVA?

I’ve been working on my setup to take advantage of some different lighting. Take a look at this article on manipulating light spectrum with cannabis.,the%20excess%20energy%20it%20has%20from%20more%20photosynthesis.

@Aussie_autos i ve had bananas soaking in the fridge for a few weeks, adding to it now and then, i use little splashes to bring my ph down, but how do i use it to feed, how much do you dilute it?? Or how much do u feed each plant

I’d defoliate all the under growth that won’t make it to the canopy AND any big leaves that block light from penetrating the lower canopy. This will not only divert all the plants energy to fattening up those buds but also improve the air flow and light penetration.

Here’s an example,

These are a few weeks apart but you can see significantly less material in the second picture but a majority of the colas have fattened up with the plant focusing on the main growth points

If you have made a banana concentrate i would use two tablespoons per five ltrs

how do you make a banana concentrate?

Im not sure if im doing it right, got the idea from @Aussie_autos . I just put a pitcher of water in the fridge and just keep adding to it, with bananas and cucumber.

Ur got right sort of i put the bananas and cucumber together and i normally put a air pump into the water to get it bubbling and with that you want to use a cup to two cups of banana and cucumber water to five ltrs of water or u can just water ur plants with the banana and cucumber water with out adding anymore water to it


Banana concentrate you get four bananas cut them up in to small pieces weigh how much the banana is then put into a bowl now weigh out the brown sugar to the same weight as the banana pieces add to bowl and mix it with ur hands until it gos really soft and mushie then place into a jar put a coffee filter over the top of the jar using a rubber band to hold it there let it sit for a week then strain it out catching the liquid in a bowl once it is done put the liquid into a clean jar and put it in the fridge and when u use this u use two tablespoons of banana concentrate to five ltrs of water


ok cool ima try to make some right now thanks bro

Hi, my girlfriend and I are funding a concept of mine to introduce for the cannabis industry. Enter for a chance to win the second built Plant Capsule 1.0! Fully built grow capsule not your ordinary tent. Air tight sealed 2’ x 3’ x 5’ ft. light aluminum metal enclosure with air flow w/ ventilation system, temperature controlled, and humidity controls incorporated into one(the inside of enclosure will be completely open for the plants, big fans or humidifiers in the way, that will all be encased in the housing of the enclosure.) All systems can be manually controlled outside of enclosure with out disturbing the environment which overall saves on run time from components . The design is structurally stronger but the upside is that all components come built in the Plant Capsule System besides the lighting system which seems to be the most upgraded part which is interchangeable in my design. Right now in the concept phase we would appreciate all the help we can get from our community. Big wigs don’t like this industry and we only need 100 Donations to get the first big sponsor from a vendor. Anything and everything helps, even just a dollar.


  1. Donate any amount of money you’ll be entered in for a chance to win the first initial prototype.
    2.Your name will be added to the raffle.
    3.Winner will be chosen at the $10,000 or end of campaign.

Share and good luck!

Retail Value: $2,000


Thank you :blush: i book marked for future reference
