Seems to be good growth the last few days


Although two plants seem to be struggling a little, from my limited knowledge I’m thinking N tox maybe, if anyone has thoughts I’ve added pics of the problem plants.

I think I’m going to try flushing the problem two and see how they go, once again advice on best way to flush would be appreciated :+1:

Had some ups and down but finally things seem to be on track, stable root pH, stable ec out, growing well and seem to have only minor issues,

Seem to be training nicely

This one is slightly stunted compared to the others but the vegitation is lush


Had to switch out a saucer today due to a crack, and wow those roots. I’m guessing this could be a problem if I leave too much runoff in the saucers?

Couple more pics
Platinum cookies doing so well


Foliage on this one is amazing

This one looking a little sickly but I think it may have been roots sitting in run off too long

About time I dropped an update

The ill looking plant has bounced back somewhat and is small compared to the others but it’s finally looking healthy. The other 5 are going strong have good shape and are looking like 12/12 flip is on the cards for next week, I have a clone and an auto in there too but don’t know what to do with them when I flip the lights maybe just chance it, if they were bigger I would move them outside, weather has been great but I think they are too small especially the auto as that’s an fresh seedling.


My brother also had 3 clones that I did and they are doing well

They smell pretty good, definitely fruity at first, the smell they leave on your hands is so good, will update as they flip into flower. Hopefully not too strong, neighbours won’t approve :joy::joy:

Use a carbon filter
i love terps man!!

Finally fitted an RO setup, are they always painfully slow at generating water?

Day 3 of 12/12 these things are already reaching for the sky

This little fella now lives in my kitchen window :joy::joy:

Guess you could say these have stretched just a little, I make it 2 weeks since I saw the first pistilis.
