Day 26 Veg

I've been busy for the past few weeks so haven't had time to update properly, sorry. The girls are coming along well, the strongest has grown to 6 nodes, fimmed the top so have limited her to 5 nodes-I'll do the same with the rest. 2 of them are currently 4 nodes in another day or two they should be ready for fimming they smallest is only at 3 nodes and probably this weekend will be ready.

Day 34 Veg

Thanks Boom! I've noticed the girls are partial to the light coming from the induction light in the center-they've been turning their fan leaves toward it. I"ve just got 2 180's in play at the moment with the induction-I'll add the 3rd a week or so into flower, light height is 18"-20" 18/6 lt/dk Today I fed the girls their first dose of Open sesame, since I like to switch to 12/12 between weeks 6 & 7 veg, bloom is just another week & perhaps a few days away. But, I'm keeping the option of taking it out to a full 8 weeks on the table for now.

Journal Entry 8/3/11 RO Water Ph'd 6.5, bubbled overnight, 2 tsp/gal Grow Big, 2 Tblsp/Gal Big Bloom, 2 Tblsp Gal H2O2, 1 Tblsp/Gal Molasses, fimmed 2 next largest

The girls have really started bushing out and sucking down the water & food, dry within 48 hrs. Foxfarm's instructions say feed every other watering, but I'm thinking that may be excessive feeding twice a week or optionally I could halve the dose and continue alternating feeding with waterings. Anyone have any suggestions on this?
