I switched to RO water but my water had high levels of calcium carbonate and I’m wondering if that’s why I always had issues. I’m also organic now too so just teas and the water and maybe some top dress. At my first time so I do t know how flower will go but I’m extremely optimistic.That's the chart, really interesting knowing the symbiotic relationships of the nutrients, especially if you're using tap water.
That's the conclusion I'm arriving at, my water has 267mg of calcium carbonate per litre.I switched to RO water but my water had high levels of calcium carbonate and I’m wondering if that’s why I always had issues.

Thank you Reave.These still have lots of time I think. They look good. They bulk up in the last few weeks.
what do the trichromes look like? Anything to zoom in on them with?
Thanks Dick, The trichomes are pretty thick and cloudy in there. Not many amber but that can change fast.Looking good stinker! I'd say there's a week or 2 left as well. But from the pictures it looks like there's some nice cloudy trichomes in there just harder to see.
That macro lens sure does help get some closer pictures and seems to work ok. If you want to get a closer look then that you may need a jewelers loupe or a digital microscope.
It was an amazon buy and came with 3 lenses. Fish-eye, wide angle and the 25X Macro. Its a clip on, there are at least 3 sellers with different names.Not bad at all for under 20 bucks. I may need to look for one for my phone since that's what I use for pics now. I've got a good camera but a macro lense for that is pricey.
I have a routine where everything is rotated to the right each watering. When I do this two come out so as to make it easier to rotate, clean up fans and drain runoff etc. The smell lingers in my office longer each watering. My wife says Its sticking to me now after handling. The exhaust and filter keep it nice and quiet if the tents not opened.Hey Stinker, your plants are looking lovely, must be smelling particularly dank in there!
As for when to harvest, I have seen plenty do so from where yours are, to later. I have no expertise because I read when I started out growing that it's best to try and wait another week when you want to harvest, and I saw similar advice from others, so I have always harvested when some amber started to show. I only grow outdoors once a year so I have never taken the 'risk' of chopping them earlier.
Whatever you do, you'll get a lovely harvest very soon!
