Archie and Ween...yes, there are many ways to achieve success with our kit...no doubt. I will let alone now. I'm just giving my recomendations , Archie will do as he sees fit. For me....a sure fire way to turn the health of these plants around , is to transplant right now into final pots and give a Transplant Drench w/Tea. Yes , i know they are not that developed or big yet....i'm just saying what will be a 100% cure, is all. 10 kit users will have 10 different ideas...these are mine...cheers. From now on i will stay away from journals i am not directly mentoring...like Lefty's, or at least shut my mouth. At the beginning , i told Lefty i would help him achieve a very successful first crop...but he has to listen to me...and only me...otherwise , just like u said Ween...way too many solutions to the same issue can be very confusing for some...i apologize.
I am confused, let me state that. For a new person growing in the kit, it feels like there is the recommended way and then there are the advanced ways to utilize the kit. I set out to follow Docs advice intently, I failed that. Topping a plant Ive never grown is an example. I am interested in having a mentor where do I sign up? I am also naturally a person who wonders often if I am doing a procedure correctly, which instills self-doubt. Second guessing yourself all the time will drive ya mad I tell ya.
If upcanning is your recommendation, Im ready and able to do it up. I have some 7 or 10 gallon and Im saving a 15 gallon just cause I know you like em' bigger. Though 15 gal is but a baby in your grow lol. Whatever you decide, I'd also urge you to keep hitting me with the tough love sir! I've been on this site a couple years now and I am not going anywhere. Hopefully, I can return the favor to you and all the other amazing people that have stopped by and helped out here.
Duggan, please, please do not stop giving advice and helping the newer kit users! Your advice is solid and much appreciated by many, myself included! I was just looking for a little explanation behind your reccomendation which I got and understand now, your saying in lieu of a heavy trans drench in the 1's, up can with a regular trans drench is sure to help his plants get better. Now, as you said, Archie will pick the solution that best fits his situation or growing style. I can offer advice BUT I don't have nearly as much experience (with the kit or growing period) as you or many others here so sometimes I look to you guys to confirm or deny my instincts to not only help Archie or others but myself as well. Thanks Brother!
