First grow journal purple bud

Thanks for that man. I just love growing. I will have a look at the chart today just to see if I’m on point. My plants look healthy enough so I’m close, either that or I’m just lucky.
It’s a funny thing, I went to the shop the other day to buy a pad and other bits and bobs. Came out with bottled water, bird food and a parking ticket. None of which I went in to get as we had enough at home :crazy_face::crazy_face:
It’s business as usual as far as the brain goes. Just means I have to learn the same things over again each time I do them. Some things stick and others don’t. I think of my memory like a crowded table top with no space. If I put something on there it’s like something else falls off :crazy_face:

Thanks man, wife does the same. Enjoy and take care :sunglasses:

@Oldtimer69 forgot all about checking my feeding chart. Did it last night and I’m on the money. I missed my biozym which helps release/breakdown organic matter but I’m adding that now. I’ve also started feeding with Sulphate of Potash today (10th) as thats my flowering started. It’s k value is 48% so I’m full alert for nute burn. Watch this space :sunglasses:

Sounds great, Can’t wait to see the swelling up! :+1::+1:

Bought two elasticated nets yesterday and fitted them last night (14th). My ladies keep reaching for the sky and getting burned. I will pop in over the next few days and start tucking leaves in. Is there anything else I should be looking for or doing that would help.

Just bending and tucking to fill out the net. That will help also with the burn… You won’t have those limbs that are closer to the light than others.

That was my thinking as well. I’ve tried twice to do it without the net but I’ve decided the only way to keep those limbs down is to net the buggers. Just need to pull everything over to fill the gaps now. I’ve been doing a fair bit of reading on scrogging. Fairly straightforward by the looks of things

2nd March and things are looking good. I’ve noticed a slight yellowing on the very tips of my leaves. Not sure what’s going on, checked my ppm at runoff and it was 200 on the 500 scale so I will feed tomorrow night. PH was good at 6.8. Flowers are looking good. Getting the hang of the scrog as well with some nip and a bit of tuck. Set the new air cooled hood up on Saturday. New ducting and new variable speed fan pulling air from the inlet straight through both hoods and out again without touching the interior. Fan is currently set to low just now as it appears to be a real good unit. Set my old fan up outside my tent as an exhaust venting into my filter. Did this to make way for the extra ducting needed for those big hoods. No sign of the spider mites from my previous grow so the centipedes have done their job. Lesson learned, if it’s in the greenhouse, leave it there.
Looking at PK boosters. Are they worth it or is it just snake oil. Stuck another fan in to keep the air moving as well
Got enough kit now to start a veg tent. Thinking about a 2x2 or a 3x3. Doesn’t need to be huge, just needs to be light proof

Here’s a picture of the yellow leaf tips. This is on a cutting but the mother has the same yellow tips dotted here and there

Looks like some nute burn

@Oldtimer69 that was my thoughts. I fed them last night after checking the ppm the night before and it was around 200. I will leave it for a few nights then check the runoff just to be sure it’s not rising

200 you’re good… Lol just at some point I’d say they got a little hot. We all do it. Other than that they look healthy and good.

Quick check on my runoff last night. All good, sitting at 700. Forgot to check the PH so I will check that tonight. I’ve been asking about the boost function on my ballasts over the past few days and last night(6th March) I flicked over. The boost apparently kicks my 600w up by 10%. No harm in giving it a try. Took a picture of my buds and they look like they’re close. That’s 8 weeks since I flipped. I’ve trimmed a bud and have it drying. Purely for scientific purposes :crazy_face::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Looks like still alot of clear in those pictures, I’d say you still have a few weeks. I’d try the boost light too. Might download a lux meter on your smartphone? And see what light intensity you have at the canopy? 20,000 30,000 lux just so you don’t get light burn this late in the game.

Lux meter is a great shout. My hoods are both air cooled so light burn is in hand. I’ve already scorched the top of one of my ladies so I switched to a second cool tube. I did see a light film of dust on the glass last night when I was in though. Need to try and get that sorted today :sunglasses:

The plants like 20,000 to 28,000 lux and more than that I start making the crispy and they start foxtailing… Happened on the ones I just harvested… I had my lights turned up too much

I need a green light. I’m fumbling about in the dark trying to get bits and pieces done. I will have a look for a LUX app and see what I can find. I have two 600w HPS (air cooled) and three 75w led 4k flood lamps. I also have a spare hood and 600w bulb there that I’m trying to figure out how I can squeeze in. I have changed my lighting setup around and my tent is sitting at 84f for some reason now. The heat from my lights is ducted straight in and straight out again. Need to look at my inkbird and make sure it’s set up properly. The probe must be sitting on top of a light or tucked in the roof bars somewhere.

Checked PH and it was 6.3. Can’t remember for the life of me what it’s supposed to be :rofl::rofl:. Going up through the posts above for a look, be right back :crazy_face::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
PH is supposed to be 6.5 - 7.0. I’m a little off so need to keep an eye on that. Not too worried though as it’s not too far off

Downloaded a lux meter and it maxed out at 20k lumens so I downloaded another and it did the same​:frowning:. Need to find one that goes higher :sunglasses:
