Ahh I hope I didnt sound as though I am ungrateful Duggan because ts the exact opposite.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.
Ween, you said it bro! I am also inquisitive and want to understand when to do what. I honestly didnt think upcanning would even be considered yet. Which is exactly why we need folks like Duggan! Thank you for helping me bro, I know its a full time job haha!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!
