Planned on flipping tomorrow ish, but idk the tops are still having that weird growth after topping. Its just that plant still I think so I might flip anyways.
Non scientific answer, efficiency matters too. You’re getting more light output for less watts. Maybe I’m
Jumping in where I shouldn’t.
Not sure what you mean. My question was why can a 135 watt HLG board can be too much but at 600 watts or whatever the 550s are same distance from plants. Its obvious to me now. But before I wasnt thinking about it right. The answer that makes sense now is cause those watts are going through more boards. Thats all I was asking.
Gotcha. You’re right.
@Breezy are these what you used for gnats? Ive seen a gnats or two flying around this week, and wanna make sure it’s not from my plants…you just dump em on top?
Yep just throw a few on top of soil. Not to many. A little goes a long way. Or you could throw a few in your water you mix up and just water your plants.
I did a whole layer of these as a top soil because I couldn’t get rid of those bugs in my dirt. To this day I still don’t know what those were. Didn’t hurt my plant I don’t think. I just wasted the bits in my opinion as it didn’t do anything to them
I use those and fly paper down by the soil, it catches all the little F’ers that I’m certain come with the soil. Their little parting gift to us👍
@Hellraiser says to use a few bits per square inch and then water the plants as normal and let the slurry just soak down into the soil. It what I used all summer. I live in bug paradise.
i just saw a gnat or two in the room across the hall, so now im paranoid. Also found a cricket in the tent yesterday. And I kill a mosquito every day in this damn room, idk where they are coming from.
we have millions of crickets just outside or we did over the summer. I caught a few in the grow room but not in the tent. I had a few gnats in the tent during veg but went way overboard with the De and then the Bits. I haven’t seen one in the tent for ages. My pots dry out so fast the don’t have a reason to be in there.
Every now and then I will see one land on my monitor or the kill zone and I am only seeing a few on the yellow papers now about the grow area. So few in fact I took the yellow stickies out of the tent aside from one or two just to glance at now and then. I was sick of having them stick to my face and head every time I ducked in there to do something.
I keep things pretty clean and don’t let moisture linger then trays and what not.
started the 12 hours shifts today, i cant let em get much bigger so its now or never. And the 10 week clock starts. Coming down right before christmas, as im leaving for 2 days then.
how long did it take you to make that decision. I find myself taking hours or days to make calls some times. lol
And yea. that’s a tight squeeze you got going there. Definitely don’t want it overcrowded. Im going two less plants in the 4x8 this time. 6 only.
im pretty impulsive usually, but i planned this a few days ago. Im not sure if ittl work out how i want, but im damn sure gonna try to keep all four. I may have to pick and choose which shoots i allow through. but right now its kinda perfect. Theres one stem or cola for each lil square. We shall see.
good deal. I plant on a more even canopy this time around. I really need to maximize my space.
thats what im shooting for also, but I have no clue how these plants will grow, but I kept it pretty even last time by super cropping. I have 2 more screens to put up, the bottom one is just to separate it all, then ill guide the colas through the second one, and use the third for support… i think. sounds good anyways.
So i was popping the taller stems so that they slow down the stretch in an attempt to get a bunch of the same height colas. Anyways. The citrus smell off of the OrangeGasm is pretty incredible. It smells like lemon candy, and its not even flowering yet. Pretty excited. I also came to the conclusion that I am going to have to feed the golden goat #2 seperatly it needs a lil more macros then the rest. But i think I got it under control for now.
Im thinking about getting a par meter…but damn they are expensive. I cant even find a used one locally. I just dont feel like im getting the most out of this light running it at such a low intensity. hmmmm we should get a community one lol, seems dumb to spend 400 bucks on something i only need to use once. But it would be very useful that one time. I guess it would be useful for each grow…
There are a bunch of videos showing how you can get accurate PAR readingings using a less expensive LUX meter. I wont try to explain it as I dont have the knowledge myself, but the videos were simple enough to follow.
Also, where did you get your golden goat seeds from? I love that strain (its has the BEST smell in my opinion of any strains)
They are from irie genetics, check out seeds here now. the s1’s are all gone, but i think there are still Bx available.
