New alert! Got a question guys. My GG4 auto has grown so tall in my 2x2x4 tent that I had to bend the top colas down to avoid cutting it. We’re coming up on the 7th week in flowering and the leaves have started curling up and have turned yellow/brown like there dying off. Could this baby be closer to harvest than expected?
I’m growing in FFOF soil and need move the plant to my tub to flush as there is no way that I can think of to flush. I’m afraid the stems and plant with break off if moved due its size and the net I have is supporting the weaker areas. Any advice on transporting or flushing in this scenario? How are people growing these big ass plant and flushing them. All video on the subject never show someone actually doing it but talking and bragging on their yields lol!
You can use bamboo sticks to support weak limbs to move the pot. Stick them in the pot and Tie wrap limbs.
It’s a little late for this, but it might help you with future grows. A silica product or seed sprout tea really helps plants with structural strength. The change is so dramatic that I won’t introduce it until I know that I am done training a plant. It doesn’t take very much. 4 or 5 ml each over 3 or 4 waterings will really strengthen a plant. I usually do a round of silica treatment just after the 3rd week or flowering after the stretch is nearly complete.
I don’t flush, why take nutrients from your plant when it needs it the most? I feed up to the day I chop them down.
There’s plenty of study’s for both sides but I find most harshness of buds is caused in your drying /curing process not if you flush or don’t flush
Hi buddy, I use plastic totes that my pots sit in. (See pic below, homedepot has a bunch) When I flush I use a wet or dry vac to pull the water out of the tube as the pot over flower. I’ll do 10 gals of phd water for a 5 gal pot. It takes some time since the wet or sry vac doesn’t take more than 2 or 3 gals before its full. I then dump.it in the toilet. You may have been cal deficiency or a nute lockout. You should give her a feed after you check your runoff and its back to 6.0-6.5 during your flush. Check the ppms when you start the flush and when your done to be sure you back in range. You probably have another 3 weeks to go so I would get at least 500ppm back in her with a cal/ni boost but prob not mag and some nutes and bump her up for her last few feeds before you just give phd water for the last 10 days. Also, whats your humidity been? Low humidity has an effect on leaves being able to perspire as well. Its good to be at 45-50% during the last half of flower.
