Good to have you along oleskool. Two weeks into blooming so we should be seeing some icy buds soon
Hi dauzer! Good looking plants & setup!
On my previous grow I was alternating watering and feeding every time. I didn't pay attention to the time between them and it went fine! But I guess that with organic nutrients you could feed at every watering.
How many watts hid is it? I have a 1000 watt HPS air cooled sealed hood. I don't ever let them get closer than 12 inches I am to worried about heat killing trichomes. I definitely don't think 3 inches is enough room have you super cropped her can you bend the branches closer with string. But definitely be worried if you are above a 12 inch even on air cooled

Hey WW. Great to see you here.
With your last grow were you following a schedule ? I'm following the Advances Nutrient schedule, it says to feed every week but I think it's more so for a hydro or coco grow. I'm just using soil so will obviously need less feeds. I'm going to flush them next week with water and then try a feed after that.
The best you can do is respect the schedule from the nutrient brand! Don't hesitate to email them to get more info. If they don't answer and help you then just switch brand next time.
I don't have experience with HID but on your next grow you'll have to top your girls and do some LST! It's actually crazy how tall they grew in 14L pots!
It looks like you have quite some room in your tent right? What you could do is move your lamps further away from your plants and give them an angle. That way they'll be pointing at your plants but they will be further away. It won't be optimal and you might have to rotate your pots everyday but at least you won't kill your plants.
Maybe it sounds stupid I don't know
This sounds absolutely insane but i have a friend who cut the bottom off there . tents so he could make his plants lower by putting the tent up on cylinder blocks. But i refuse to cut my tent. Just giving you a idea if needed. Or go on ebay and get a taller tent
Genius!! That will work. I have loads of space, more than I need (order the wrong tent)
I think I can push them up a small bit more though. If I remove the hangers and use heavy duty cable ties instead I can go up another 4' to 5'. After that if they stretch anymore the lights will be sideways [emoji3]
Yeah 14l and they don't seem to be stopping. They were topped lol. I should have trained them as soon as I got them to mine I just never imagined they would go up another 2ft. The 2 largest are the northern lights. If you look closely at the pic you'll see their actually spread across the two trays one on either side. Monsters!!
Good thinking man. I was onto them before about their nutrient line and they replied within about 40mins with a mountain of info so I'll hit them up now. They don't seem to be showing any signs of over feeding but then again it could affect the end result.
