Update. Did some more LST.
She is looking great when i grow photos and lst them i remove the big fan leafs so nothing gets blocked just allows goot light penetration and good airflow but only if its a photoperiod plant my autos i tend to let them grow naturally
@LiesGrows thanks! Yeah, she is an auto so I’m just tucking them the best I can. This is my first grow and it’s been a blast!
With autos tho once they hit 2 weeks of flower i will typically do a good defoliation tho to allow light deep in but i tuck up until that 2nd week of flower mark
Also have you figured out nutrients or started feeding nutrients yet that soil is gonna start to run low soon coming up on a month sense she sprouted
@LiesGrows No nutrients yet. I was going to water it tomorrow with PH water OG said then start looking into them. What do you think I should get ordered so that I am prepared? I know OG mentioned Jacks 3-2-1. I’m open to suggestions.
Ive ran jacks 321 before was a solid and cost effective nutrient line i personally got extremely tired of ph’ing my water and mixing nutrients a few times a week so i switched to organics with the Earth Dust and absolutely love it, its so user friendly and i dont have to ph water or mix nutrients and make sure the ppm is good i just simply top dress my plants and use plain water i will also do a compost tea a every other week it honestly is the easiest way of growing impo ive tried soil with Jacks ive tried coco with jacks and now Earth Dust with happy frog soil and ill probably never switch back to anything else only thing i may change is try a different soil instead of happy frog but eitherbway its a easy tride and true for great results
@LiesGrows so with earthdust I would simply just top dress the Soil I already have and keep watering? I ordered the small kit of jacks 321 to keep my options open. I’m looking for a easy, duplicatable method of growing. Let me know when you get a chance!
Also, do you have a link to where you buy it? I’m seeing a lot of different options. Thanks!
Absolutely if you bought Earth Dust you could top dress with the boost rite away with ED tho they recommended mixing 3 to 5 tbsp of base per gallon of soil and allowing the soil to cook for a few weeks before planting in it then you top dress with boost 2 weeks before the flowering stage once again 3 to 5 tbsp per gallon of soil and then top dress again 30 days after flower has started also go to the green sunshine company website thats who makes it
@LiesGrows with that being said, I may use jacks for this one and ED for the next one and do it right.
@OGIncognito I ordered the jacks 321 and should get it tomorrow. My last runoff was 5.9-5.98 (yesterday). She is showing signs of pre flower now. Should I mix in the 3-2-1 recommended dosage in the next feeding or go just 6.8-7 water again? I read that some people almost flip the dosage once flower starts…but the website says use 3-2-1 throughout. Thoughts?
Do you know the run off PPMS?
Yoir ph run off is good what is your ppm run off thats what you want to monitor more cause once its down to 900 to 1000 ppm is when you want to start nutrients and i personally would start at a half dose of nutes for the first couple of feedings then by the 3rd or 4th feeding be at max dosage
Also you measure out jacks in grams with a little pocket scale the 321 is the grams of each nutrient 3 grams Part A, 2 grams par B and 1 gram epsom salt
I didn’t get a PPM reading…I didn’t realize I had a meter that tested that until it was too late yesterday . I may do the same water one more time and get the PPM reading then go from there. She is looking healthy!
Yeah definitely get that ppm reading as that will let you know when its time to start with the jacks and absolutely she is looking great so far
Lastly, with jacks does it just dissolve into the water you feed with? Should I get some PH up or down ahead of time? Thank you guys for all your help!
Jacks full strength recipe is Part A 3.6g, Part B 2.4g, Epson Salt 1.1g you want to mix the Part A and Epson together first make sure its full dissolved then mix in Part B and make sure ots fully dissolved as well then ph the water between 6.5 to 6.8 every time when i grew with jacks i would do a plain watering between nutrients feedings and make sure to allow for 15-20% run off when ever you water or feed yes you will need ph up and down to do adjustments
Do you guys think the 100w LED light I got with my AC Infinity tent will be sufficient for this first grow?
Whats the size of the tent again and is it just 1 plant under that light?
