I am 5 1/2 wks into flowering, I shouldn't be foliaring any more should I?
Temps are between 80-85, it has been unusually hot in our area as with the rest of the country. Air circulation is good. No sign of any bud rot so far.
I had been spraying Stump Tea. Using a plastic spray bottle from the hardware store. I haven't sprayed in about 10 days. And I did do a lot of defoliating the other day. Come to think of it I would be spraying more bud than leaf.:30:
Over all the plants are healthy, just don't seem as far along with the tris development this time. The tris are short more like the WW's of past and the 2 WWxQ crosses this time which resemble their WW mom structure wise. The other 3 look the same. Not many of those golf ball on a tee looking tris.
The Spicy White Devil smells like Lemon Pledge but are some really thin buds that might not amount to much.
Well my attempt at Hi Brix has just hit 2 weeks of cooking. The soil seems to have sunk a bit from the level it was originally, is dead black, has a nice earthy smell and a good texture. I added 6 gallons of perlite, remixed and put the lid back on the 18 gallon tote. I have just over 15 gallons of this to play with. Going to try some on a few bagseeds I have to see if it is too hot and if I have to start em in a layer using OC+ on top. I am tempted to start another 15 gallons of it cooking but want to do some testing first.
How thick of a layer? Thinking 3 inches but have read up to half of the pot.
I gave the plants a full dose of my light version of tea and they seemed to perk up quite a bit and the plants look a nice vibrant green.
I tested the brix yesterday about 20 hrs after the tea feeding, and I am still only getting 5 from the small leaves. I will try to test a small bud in the next day or two to see if the reading is any different.
And of course I have another question;
I made the Tea in a 6 gal bucket with a drip irrigation shut off valve on the bottom and used an old piece of hose to water with. It actually worked quite well. All of the ferts/debris sludge is still on the bottom so I added another 5 gal of water and started brewing again.
Is it OK to re-brew a Tea with the same ingredients that were left in the bucket? I am guessing as long as it foams and isn't a fowl smell it should be alright? Or should I dis-guard it and start a fresh batch? Also should the bucket be cleaned thoroughly between brews if starting another batch to remove any contaminants?
Most of the soil from old grows goes in my friends veggie garden and his plants look almost like tropical size plants. All he adds is water. Have you made any decisions of reusing some of your soil?
How much longer do those PE have to go doc? The look so nice!
Wow Doc!! Your plants are looking stunning!!! Have you been testing your brix levels?
