Blueberry 420 & Super Skunk, GH & Sunshine Mix

Seeds from Amsterdam Seed Company, and was let down by seed viability. 1000 watt HPS for flower, vegged under 125w CFL, then 500 w and later 1000W MH. Grow media is Sunshine Mix #4. I use the attached GH schedule, and the only supplements I use are the Floraliciuos Bloom & Grow, and Kool Bloom. Switched to 12/12 light cycle on May 15th. I know if I dilute my hard well water by 2/3 with rain, it's about 200ppm TDS(Ca/Mg mostly). I do use Hard Water Micro. I never measure pH, or nute TDS. I water by weight during the week, and flush well with full strength nutes once a week. The Sunshine mix is an inert hydroponic media, and not a soil.

I don't use Kool Bloom until the end of the blooming cycle. I do see yellowing of the fan leaves later, but that happens in my soil grow in my greenhouse, too. I assumed it was due to N reduction in the nutrients. Even wild plants have their fan leaves turn yellow late in bloom.

Another week. I forgot to mention that this grow was almost an afterthought . These are extra plants from my greenhouse seed germination. The HPS bulb I used during early flower was old, and probably caused extra stretch. I only had enough Sunshine for 2 gallon pots and I normally use 5 gallon. Just added 2 Gelato girls to this mix on the 10th in 5 gallon pots. First bud is Blueberry 420, and next is Super Skunk. They will get Cool Bloom next week!!!

Here's a BB 420 and then a S Skunk bud. Just gave them their first dose of Kool Bloom. And...the girls.

Here's all the girls with about 3 weeks to go. They are really starting to bulk up after a couple of weeks of Kool Bloom. The Indica is a gelato shown in my 6/14 post. She's being flushed. She has a couple of months. left.

Just gave them probably their last nutes. I'll know in a few more days. The fan leaves are just starting to fade. Day 53 in bloom. S Skunk then BB 420, and the girls. Hope to be tastin' it in a couple of weeks.

I thought I'd add some pix of the Gelatos that were growing with the others. These were an afterthought, sort of. About 7 weeks into bloom. See some leaf damage? I think that's from my well water changing from all the rain we've had. It's usually very hard, and I had established a ratio of RO/rain that worked fine. I think the rain made my well pH lower and I had some Ca/Mg problems for a bit. I upped the amount of well water in my mix, and it seems to have to helped. I need to find my TDS and pH meters one of these days!
