Doc's never ending adventure

Likely heat stress… like this right?


If so stick your hand at canopy level under your light and count to 30, if its too hot for your hand its too hot for your leaves.

I cant say I would have removed so many, but she should be ok. The key to defoliation is finding a happy medium between allowing light to bud sights and keeping enough leaves to do photosynthesis.

Update- dropped a Nesia strain seed into towel a day ago, it popped so made up a dixie cup to start her in. Things are going well in my 3x3, ill try and get some pics up in the next day or so.

Ill be starting the super soil grow sometime after the 2nd. Waiting on my tester seeds to come in, getting mailed on the 2nd. In the mean time, as Im leraning a new methid of growing I reached out on the board for tips on technique. Here is a link to that thread.

Good morning here is a question from my significant other. Do you recommend a negative, positive or neutral air flow?

Congrats on getting photos going! It’ll be interesting to see how tall you take em and shape them

Depends. Positive airflow will push air out of your tent and into your home. If smellimg the cannabis you are growing is an issue (like in an appartment or duplex) then thats a no go. 1 or 2 plants not extremely loud but if they get big it will smell like you could roll up your home and smoke it! Neutral airflow is easy on your fans extending their operational lifespan but very hard to achieve as every inch of your ducting, every bend in the direction and things like silencers and carbon filters change the total cfm your fans are capable of and lining up two fans to achieve this isnt easy. Negative airflow is easy to achieve keeps smells from pushing out of your tent and ensures your moving enough air to replace all the air in your tent quickly but is hard on the fan. Pulling air through all the tiny holes in the canvas of your tent works the motor. I use a negative pressure system. My intake fan (currently in the summer its different (single fan over double) but still negative) has much more ducting and split into two ducts on different sides of the tent vs the export fan that has short ducting blowing warm air inside my apartment through a charcoal filter. Does that make sense?

Saw this in my instagram today. This is what can happen when you do foilar spraying and it doesnt dry before the lights come on. In this instance it was IPM spraying.

So what I am doing looks like a good idea? Doing a few things differently this time around. Definitely not going to pluck any fan leaves. Also been measuring it 51/4 inches tall was 4 inches yesterday.

They are called PK boosters. They come in varied ratios with large amounts of potassium and phosphorous for each phase of flowering.
Open Sessame is for transition and early flower, beastie blooms is for mid flower and chaching is for late flower. P and K are the most used nutrients for flowering and having much of them available will increase size and overall density of your buds. Using about 1/4 tsp per gallon of feed water, they will last you a long time.

Doc, just created a profile so I could dive into these journals and find a lot of your stuff very insightful along with everyone else you tag, etc. My main issue, and hoping you might be able to help, I’m about a month in - give or take a few days, the Mrs. and I tend to be pretty hands off with our growing - this is our 5th grow. We’ve had some issues in the past and I’m worried we are going down the same path again, still havent found a flow or style of growing to stick to due to busy schedules.

So, about a month in on wedding cake auto, skywalker OG auto, and Tangerine dream auto all from Barney’s farm. everything appears to be going well but noticed some burning ends and clawed leaves today (very minor). tested water run off today when i watered and showing 5 - 5.5 ph between all the ladies. i am in fox farm ocean soil only - no chems added but calmg at 1/4 dose (just gave calmag to see if this is the issue). this grow is in smaller pots rn due to issues with larger pots. so we plan to put them in larger pots soon and let them run wild. with the PH being so low, would you recommend flushing then transplant to larger pots when we get them? i cant imagine the nutrients are the issue and will be getting PPM runoff to double check. im worried due to PH dropping on runoff its gonna lock out and starve the plants. just looking for some thoughts and how i can better adjust things going forward. normally wouldnt transplant autos but here we are.

again, full on newb here and just want to start getting things right, so many opinions and info out there and figured id start here instead of sampling a bit of everything and throwing it together.
