the early seedlings are hash plant, the larger are white widow. I had the WW under T5 for seedling stage, the hash plant seedlings are literally 4 times the size at the same age but they have always lived under my 100w Osram LED.

I had 4 100w equivalent CFL's tonight to my set up. I'm interested to see if they compliment the LED, which has been excellent.

Finally got my 8x8 tent up, here's some pics. I'm hoping to see some vertical growth. They've been under the Osram 100w HL horticulture LED, now switched them to the Mars 1600w. I also topped the white widows today (the three larger ones) ... The seedling is a hash plant that is a week old.

Planted my four Hash Plant seedlings into their 3 gallon smart pots.

ALL organic, just like with the white widows. Soil mix using SeaSoil from British Columbia with some worm castings and then coco in the middle to allow the roots to grow faster.

Currently brewing their first compost tea comprised of SeaSoil, worm castings, molasses, bat guano, and blood meal.

The smaller plant is Hash Plant at 2 weeks old and the larger are my white widow at 5 weeks old.

So the plants used up what SeaSoil had to offer them by week 2 veg and started showing deficiencies. I added some bat guano, blood meal, glacial rock dust, alfalfa meal, bone meal, humane, potash, green sand, kelp meal, rock phosphate, and gypsum and they're back to lush healthy growth again.

One interesting note is the new organic soil combo I used for the hash plants is working, even better than a friend who is doing a hydro grow to compare.

Anyone know why this girl has some leaves that are curling? She has lots of healthy growth so it isn't critical, but I want to help her (white widow week 5 veg)

Day 50 for the white widow and day 27 for the hash plants. Brewing a batch of organic compost tea with compost sourced from northern British Columbia. Hoping to see some more vertical growth with that.

Another comment... sorry to make a mess of your thread.
I was looking at your recent photos and I kinda feel you might be a touch heavy on the nutes. Most of your new growth is very dark. I like to see a much lighter color in my new growth. It darkens right up after a day or two, but emerges as a nice bright green instead of the dark green coloring.

No no, the feedback is much appreciated.. I've stuck to organic nutrients and they are only getting teas for the rest of veg... Would worm castings help this out? I'm wondering if the conditioning they do to the soil would aid them.

I switched to coco and have had 100% better results then when I was growing in soil. Soil hold nutes And most of the time soil is hot. So you have to be very careful other wise you have lockout and nute burn. Where coco is clean and hOlds no nutes you get complete control over your girls. The only thing with coco is you need extra calmag and have to water at least once a day in veg and twice a day in flower.

I have soil on the bottom and top with coco in the middle for my hash plants, they are growing 3-4 times faster than my ww's. Your grow has been a lot of fun to watch, looks amazing! Here's a quick update photo. Bottom are WW, top are hash plant, middle left is hash plant, middle right is WW. Gave them their first compost tea yesterday, they loved it.
