Wont let me edit the title . 400 watt lamp. I am a little late starting this journal as I'm already into week 3. I figured posting a grow journal would be easier to ask questions and get answers faster than I could with a post in another subforum. Yall guys n gals seem pretty cool here. So I'm here to kick it
Been using sensi grow and bloom nutes with b-52, big bud and super thrive when I transplanted in to the 20 liter air-pot. If you notice the pictures started this gal out in a dwc setup but one night I was changing my res and a damn fruit fly somehow landed inside the res, then attached itself to a root, and I didn't notice. Let's just say the next day my roots were black as night and I found the half rotted carcass of that little bastard. I transplanted and the plant went into a 2 week shock, But she made it.

Re: first grow journal. D.P. Blueberry 4th watt mh/hps scrog

It is day 26 since I switch to flower and the bud are filling in nicely. I been having to water a gallon minimum every other day with this air-pot. I'm loving it because how it makes the roots grow, I can't even stick my finger a inch into soil without breaking dozens of roots .The soil mix I used was 50% ffof, 30% happyfrog, and 20% perlite. Been keeping the room a steady 75 degrees with a humidity between 45% and 55%.i need to get a another dehumidifier because the 60 liter tank is always full before I get home for work and also when I wake up in the morning. I could also use advice on my canopy. I have a ton of leaves and from research Ive done, some people that say that to leave the leaves and then there is some people who say cut the leaves so light gets to the bud. I understand leaving the leaves allow photosynthesis and the creation of carbohydrates and sugars for the plant to grow. If someone can help on this subject I'm more than happy to listen (or read in this case ). Please enlighten me with facts..not just who says what, but why, and the reasoning behind the choice they chose.

I appreciate that flyin and yours are starting to come out nicely as well. My next grow when this plant is done is going to be a ebb and flow setup kinda like what you going on. Got my super lemon haze mother on schedule too so I'll have the clone ready when I chop the blueberry down. Also gonna upgrade to a 600 watt light. Want a 1000 but I don't want to install a new circuit and plug for the light in a rental.

Two 3.5 gallon buckets over a 30 gallon tub but I won't have the sweet system you got. I'm a poor man and work with what I got. By the time after next grow I will have the resource to make a veg tent and go perpetual but that's 4 months down the road. And man thanks for the offer man, when I set it up after Christmas I'll definitely will hit you up.

Me and you in the same page then lm not that broke thought lol I do work . I'm not a fan of trays though. Because of the large surface area it's too much water and mess and my dehumidifier already works overtime from where I live so I don't want to make it worse.what medium do you prefer to grow in?

With rock wool you only have to flood like twice a day unless it's in the tray or do u water more. I figured with the hydrotron it dries faster, so that means you can flood more and refresh the nute solution which would lead to a faster growth rate. I seen rock wool recirculating drip setup that did well but unless he flush he would get salt build up.
