    Ebb and Flow Flowering and AeroGarden Cloning

    I am doing my last crop before I move. I took several cuttings from my mother plant to clone in my AeroGarden and in my cloning tray. I am thinking about doing an outdoor crop of maybe 2 or 4 plants in different locations, but I am fearful about planting outdoors. I located some areas, but I am still thinking about it.

    I have a 2'X2' ebb and flow system that give me about 84g per harvest. This is more than enough for my personal use.

    I am using the following:
    400w HPS digital ballast with an air cool reflector from HGT Supply
    Bontanicare ebb and flow small setup (4 plants give me approximately 80g)
    GH 3 part
    tap water (I used r/o on my 1st crop with cal/mag additives, with tap water no problem with cal/mag)

    I placed the cuttings in my AeroGarden for 3 weeks:



    Next I placed 5 clones in the flowering system with GH formula for transistion.

    Plants are growing.
    I noticed that some fan leaves are folding on the edge. Any advice will be welcomed.

    Re: Ebb and Flow Flowering and AeroGarden Cloning

    Here are the Specs:

    Ph = 6.0
    ppm = 680
    Nutrients: GH Flora Series (3 part)
    Water = Tap (210ppm)
    Light = 400w HPS at 12 hours
    Hydro system = Ebb and Flow
    plants = 3 week old clones from my AeroGarden
    Stage = 4 weeks, transition

    I will change the water today to 1 week of Blooming stage

    The plants are growing:





    I moved the plants from the AeroGarden when they were 8" tall to the Flowering area. Usually I would allow the plants to flower for 6 weeks, but I wanted to experiment with going from the AeroGarden cloning to transition into the bloom stage.

    Your plants look pretty good! I'm in! ;-) I would try to get your ph around 5.5.

    I changed the nutrients today. I started the bloom mode with GH. I got the PH at 5.6 with 1260ppm.

    Good start, southernboy!
    They should perk up now that you have the PH around 5.5. I believe it's 6.5 for soil and 5.5 for hydro.
    Good luck!

    I changed the nutrients on 6/5/2009.

    pH = 5.7
    ppm = 1500
    3 part GH Bloom phase

    The plants are growing nicely:

    Re: Ebb and Flow Flowering and AeroGarden Cloning

    I was doing some late night reviewing in my copy of "Marijuana Horticulture: The Indoor/Outdoor Medical Grower's Bible" and came across a couple of interesting passages.

    1. "Induce clones to flower when they are four to tweleve inches tall to make most efficient use of HID light." I induced my clones at 8" from the AeroGarden.

    2. "By cloning, a horticulturist is planting a THC-potent plant that will continue to grow in potency at a very rapid rate. A month-old rooted clone acts exactly like a four month-old plant and can be induced easily to flower with a 12-hour photoperiod."

    Re: Ebb and Flow Flowering and AeroGarden Cloning

    This is going to be an interesting thread. I'm considering adding an ebb and flow table to my next grow, but haven't finished my basement grow room, so space is short. Will be interesting to see if this will be a way to grow for me. Keep up the good work...+rep for you.

    I'm glad you stumble across those passages. It's going to help me out. Was it the book or dvd that you got this from? I have the Cervantes Dvd. Maybe I need to go back and watch it again. Anyways so are you at the vegy or flowering stage?

    With your Flora 3 series after adding the nutes to the water do you have to adjust your ph up or down?

    Oh yeah if you want instead of putting hydroton on top of your cubes they have what is called a cube cap to prevent algae and fungus gnats. That way when you move your plants around you don't have to keep putting hydroton near your stem of your plants.

    I have the book. I also used the video from YouTude, "how to grow cannabis mr green #1"



    I am in the bloom stage. I went from my AeroGarden clones to transition in my flowering area. The cuttings were in the AeroGarden for 20 days. I took my cutting from the mother plant at approx 6".

    I changed the solution last Friday to Bloom. When I got by in town on Sunday evening, the plants grew a couple of inches (see the above photos).

    I use tap water with a 220ppm and a ph of 9. Once I add my recommended dose of nurtients, I adjust the ph with PH down. I added 15 gallons to my reservior.

    I like Mr Green too.
    Your plants sure are growing fast! The screen will fill up fast.
    Looking good!
