It’s FIMing day for the blue mystic and durban poison. I had to throw out my last grow due to males and hermies, so I’m eager to get these flipped. I’ll flip them once I see a good bit of new growth (1 - 2 weeks.)
The orange barb isn’t doing very well and has been stuck in this state for several days. There seemed to be some sort of fungus or mold that had developed at its crown. I clipped as much of it off as I could 2 days ago. I’ll let her fight until she dies or overcomes the challenge.
You can see that these 2 girls have made a lot of progress in the past 3 days. I expect they are fully recovered from FIMing and supercropping since growth has really accelerated. I’ll be flipping to 12/12 tonight. The tops created by the training (1x top, 1x FIM, and supercropping of the 2 mains created by topping) are really dense, so I’ll have to continue some LST during their stretch to ensure adequate light penetration and airflow.
Nothing to add to photo as not much has changed since the last post. pH crept down on me again so I flushed again yesterday. pH was at 6.1. I got it back up to 6.38, but I’d really like to have it around 6.6 to optimize P and K uptake since I’ve just flipped to flower. The girls are really growing and drinking a lot of water and I expect I’ll have to water again in 3 or 4 days. PPMs are fine at ~1,100.
The girls do look good this morning after yesterday’s flush. I doubt that I’ll flush again for the last 0.2. I’ll probably just creep it back up with pH 8.0 water. May take a couple more waterings to get it where I want it.
