Purple Kush, Purple Haze, GDP grow

Day 28 of flower, little yellowing going on, not sure if it’s ph related. Runnoff was 5.4 after watering at 6.8, scratches in some dolomitic limestone last night. Been really cold here last few days, have portable heater and humidifier going outside the tent to keep things in the happy zone.

So, I’ve got a new TDS meter coming because when I check mine with the calibration solution it is about 40 ppm off(reads 400 when should read 362) and when I turn the screw it doesn’t move. So assuming that is correct and it is only 40 off(which I really don’t) tonight I flushed 1.5 gal of 6.8 pH plain water thru the Purple Kush and Grand Daddy Purple(will do the Purple Haze when it dries out). The run off was 6.1 pH and about 400 ppm. I saved a sample from each to re-check tomorrow when new meter arrives. Even with it off I think that run off ppm is low seeing as it’s soil and I’m using Advanced Nutrients as well. I’ve been wondering why I’m getting yellowing all thru plants. Well, come to find out I read the feeding schedule is ml/gallon instead of ml/liter that it says. So I’m thinking that now that the nutrients in the soil have been used up that the amount of nutrients I’ve been giving is way low(2ml/gallon compared to 15ml/gallon that I should be giving). Once I verify everything tomorrow I will ramp up the amounts called for. I’m a big dumb animals folks…

Got my new tds meter, the runoff of the GDP was pH 6.0 and ppm 464, the PK was pH 6.0 and ppm 424. So next feeing will be pH 6.8 and Grow/Bloom/Micro at 8ml/gal with cal/mag at 3ml/gal and Big Bud at 5ml/gal, if they respond well I’ll bump the Grow/Micro/Bloom up each feeding, I figure I have another 5ish weeks of feeding before a 2 week flush.

Bud sites close ups, smells really coming out Purple Kush and GDP sweet berries, almost like skittles. Purple Haze more lemon.

Fed 1/2 gal of nutrients to all 3 at 8ml/gal each of grow/micro/bloom, 5ml/gal Big Bud, 3.5ml/gal cal/mag, pH 6.7 ppm 875 hopefully it takes the yellowing away and doesn’t purn them, thats a little more than half strength of the Advanced Nutrients.

Day 35, they definitely responded to the last feeding, still yellow on top, but not nearly as much as pre 875 ppm feeding and greening from bottom up. Smells are so good now and frosty frosty. New light will go up Friday so should finish with 3 weeks + of 550 watts.

Gave a bit stronger feeding today, they are sucking up the nutrients, the flowers are swelling, frost is exploding, and the smells are so awesome. Unfortunately the new light won’t be here until next Tuesday, but I can’t wait to see how it finishes them up.

Gave a defoliation today, had lots of lower buds covered, get that light in there to finish! My light was delayed, will be here Tuesday, really wish I had it earlier but oh well, a couple weeks of it at the end is better than nothing.

At full power with the light, can’t even open the tent without sunglasses on. Gave them another feeding tonight.

Some lights out pics, looking great and fattening every day.
