I would like to say that this site and shop is the best in the world! I know this sounds a little exaggerated but I have ordered from many sites and no other company looks after their customers like Robert does. I think he really cares!. This support site is also amazing and has saved my crops on three separate occasions. I have never posted anything before but I read everything on this site.
A problem I have had the last couple of weeks with my grow and didn’t see anything similar on the sight I thought I would share with you.
My girls started to look very droopy just after I switched them to 12/12. I turned to my beloved site and found several things that it could be: Over/under watering, and too much nitrogen. Some of my fan leaves started to get “the claw” appearance. I immediately eliminated nutrients as the problem because I have grow this strain (WW) many times and I use the same nutes (botinicare pro series) every time and have never had this issue. As I have recently switched from a DWC system to a 4’x4’ ebb and flow system I felt strongly that it could be and over/under watering problem. I watched my flood times and monitored everything from length of flood to how often flooding took place and no matter what I changed the girls continued to get worse. A couple of nights ago I went to check the girls and behold, they were floating in a massive pool of water which was not going away. Roots from one of the girls had grown into the drain and completely clogged it. I felt really stupid but relieved I had found the problem, thought I was losing my mind before this trying to figure this out. I suppose before I discovered the clog it was still draining but at a reduced rate causing my flood to be a much higher level and drowning the Rockwool and as I was only really checking the clay balls to see how wet things were I missed the fact that the cubes were still drenched. I have dried out my grow area and things are returning to normal again and the girls are happy happy and I am too.
Thanks from Canada for such a great site and keep up the great work! The two guys in the states (Lakewood and MacGiver) you guys are amazing and I love reading your responses.
