DWC Autos and Jack's 321

So this is Creme de la chem by Mephisto genetics. Its day 38 and shes ramping up. I fimmed her apex just once and did some leaf tucking is all. Gonna bump her to the 17 gal res after my other is chopped down.

Ran Jack’s 321 @ 33% strength up until this point flawlessly and Monday I did a res change stopping A and B altogether. I’ve supplemented her with Jack’s Bloom Booster at full strength and will run this another week then switch her back to 321 at full strength. She may need a lil Mg but that’s likely due to pH drifting to about 5.6. Completely stress free grow so far. Gonna supercrop within the next few days I think.

@Racer2037 ^^ is my youngest hydro girl rn and I just super cropped her a lil something last night so shes more stretched out and already recovering.

Realized I’ve been super lazy and haven’t taken any macros or posted any porn. Now that I’m on my computer just a few shots.

Looks like 2/2 on the Double Grape autos by Mephisto Genetics. Gonna be running these 321 in coco so I can use up what I have left. I also found some GH I had laying around. Might use that on the next bean. Waste not want not or so I hear. @thedeernad we up

Yeah that’s usually my go to chart. I’d been drifting her from 6.2 to 5.8. I also thought I woulda resolved it with an increase in ppm but yes she actually showed improvement with less nutes and a higher pH. Bud development was and still is slow though. I’m honestly not overly surprised cuz shes showing some tendencies as some freebies I had and I’m like hmmm…I think.the freebies were crosses trying to get to her. Here’s my log tho @beardless. Figured be easier to add u in and I could use the feedback cuz sometimes I’m like…am I going crazy hahaha prob so. As you can see I just started a journal…the creme de la chem above is on bloom now and that bloom is crushing it! I did supplement with cal mg tho cuz its not in the booster. Higher up is my bigger, more finicky girl. But I’m going back to 321 next res change. 2 weeks with the booster and shes not mad at all. Stacking nicely too.

I’m also starting to get curious about DLI cuz 20 and 4 under the ES180 might be too much. 18-6 might be the name of the game at least for me :man_shrugging:t5:

do you know what the average PPFD is? I would not think the ES180 would push DLI unless you have it set very low and only covering a small area.
Average ppfd of 694 for 20 hours would put you at DLI of 50. PPFD of 625 puts you at DLI of 40.
@Nicky post this growth stage DLI chart. He likes the RED line as do I. If you feed them enough and provide a good environment they will take it and love it.

From what I was able to locate 960 ish in the center at 18 inches, but maybe a bit more in my 2x4. About 500 on the outsides. FYI idk anything about ppfd and micro moles per jule etc except that they’re words Haha. So its lower in flower tho???

According to that chart at least. I am surprised it drops off and then climbs again. I thought it would be more how Nicky drew it with the Red line. I don’t know what the PPFD of one set of my light is either. I will max them out going into and then through most of flower. Back them off a bit after 6 weeks or so. Max is 450 watts and then 325 - 350 during the last weeks. That is in my 3x3.
I just picked up a Sonofarm SF4000 that I am using over a 2x2 scrog. Its avg PPFD for that 2x2 area at 22" is supposed to be 990. I hung it at 24" and at 80% which I am estimating the DLI to be right around 50 for 18 hrs.

I drop it in late flower once I see fox tails Emerging, I drop down to like 40 DLI it seems to help

It’s important to blast them pre flower to control the stretch, an auto will explode on week 4-6 and if your not blasting them you can run out of space

Facts. And yeah I had some foxtailing with my laughing buddha running Jack’s with light 20 inches away last grow. I guess its not a bad thing to use your dimmer huh? Except when u got other stages of plants in your tent too :speak_no_evil:

I always have to dim my light and raise it up around week 6ish.

What would life be without it’s fair share of challenges? It’s day 73 of this Cream Mandarin auto. Aside from the fact that she’s gotten too much light this past week, I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to do. I go OT end of the month for a week and I have some flooring being replaced literally the week before. I’d like to run her another 3 weeks then flush then and chop after I come back but Idk. Obvio if I harvest early I’m shorting myself. WWYD? Should I push her through and start flush on the week I am gone? Here’s some macros for better look at trichs than the phone.

If I were you, id do the flush the week you’re gone, PURELY for conveniences sake :grin:
