This is my 3rd grow and I’m seeing great results with a less is more technique, it that I’ve killed anything yet, but I have used too much light according to this grow. These 4 plants are 4 weeks old, 3 sour diesel and 1 kimbo. I had two kimbo but one had TMV I think, so that ones outside. Transplanted to 3 gallon smart pots 2 weeks ago. They have the largest leaves, and the fastest, healthiest growth I’ve had so far. I started with a small, maybe 25w full spectrum fluorescent bulb, and added a 2-3, 7w led light bulbs a week.
Today I started giving them raw solubles grow and calmag@1/4 strength and I always use promix bx, myco, and rain/distilled at ph 6 as seedlings, 6.5 veg, and am upping it to 7 as the promix stays at a low ph.
Today after I started LST, I put them in the flower tent so they’d turn up(towards the light)faster, and they did in about two hours. I’ll be moving them back to the lower light later.
They did seem to stretch a little more then usual but I don’t mind and might prefer it as the training is easier. I always end up with wide, flat plants. As a reference that big pot is a ten gallon, must be almost two feet across.
I took cuttings two days ago and put them directly into flower instead of rooting them first to see how that works. That’s what’s in that metal pot.
What a difference in leaf color from the diesel cookie in flower, huh?
