Flowering Day 20
She is still doing well and really stretching up. I have had to move the lights every day or two the last week.
I am trying something new for feeding my lady. I was feeding every three days and increasing my ppm slowly. Recently, water consumption has gone up markedly.
I was going to feed every four days and water in between but decided that I might keep the ppm to <800 and continue to feed every two days with bloom food (pH perfect Sensi-Bloom A&B, 0-10-0 bloom food, Ca/Mg and golden tree). After a little research and some advice, I decided to go with feeding every two days with low ppm. So far (second feeding) no problems have arose. I am watching very closely. The first signs I see of distress, I will flush and go to a more conventional watering plan.
As always, I make sure my pH is 6.4 - 6.5 on feeding and measuring my runoff at 6.5 - 6.8. When I feed, I am making sure that my runoff is 15-20 % of my input. Have increased from 10-15% to 15-20% to make sure I do not get salts developing to damage the roots.
The plant seems to be thriving and continues to grow like crazy. It is flowering rapidly and developing buds at a rate I have not seen before. This is the first time I have grown Strawberry Kush so I cannot compare grows but it seems to be doing very well. Will keep a close eye on this. Jerry
