There is my setup what you cannot see are the outtake fans, circulating fans and the cool mist humidifier.
I'll add a picture of that and my plants in next post which will be tonight when I'm checking ph and ppm.
So I got my plants as clones, from a co-op. I brought them home and topped them and transplanted in the night.
They were super stressed out. I have been nurturing them for the past week and since adding the humidifier and doing a nutrient res change 7 days later. And they seem to be comming back. Think I may have really damaged the roots and there weren't many in the soil/ rockwool when I swapped over.
Thinking they should have been more rootbound when I switched.
So I keep ph at 5.8
Ppm this 10 days will remain at 780
I'm using hydroton, rockwool, and neo collars to keep lights from creating algea on the hydroton and rockwool.
Currently moved watering a to 15 min every three hours. I was getting over watering symptoms before that. Coulda been the stress. They are growing very slowly which is ok cause I'm gonna need the time to scrog them.
I'm currently growing
3 white widow
3 sweet black angels
1 lemon kush
1 Obama kush
1 blue venom
And 1 alien dawg which seems to grow like crazy.
The blue venom is a sight for sore eyes. Think she wasn't ready to transplant.
All my stems have turned purple new growth is green and turns purple
Wondering if it's calcium toxicity, or magnesium. Haven't found the answer. Most people say its a strain thing or ph thing but since I'm growing 6 different strains that's deffinately not it. And ph coulda have been it but the 3 newest ones are showing it and they have had water PhD at 5.8 so still looking. I'll post pictures of it in next post tonight.
I'm using advanced nutes ph perfect micro grow and bloom and mix micro stir and let sit for ten min, grow stir and let sit 10 min, and bloom stir and let sit for ten min. All equal parts to hit ppm range. Then I add voodoo juice, b-52, pirahnna, and just a bit of bud candy. I have a small bottle and big bottle and read it will help feed my beneficial bacterias. So just add a small amount.
My lights are t-8 8 bulb 6500k for veg
And t-8 8 bulb 3000k bulbs for flower.
Plan on using the same nutes per nute schedule and add big bud and bud candy during flower.
Wish I would have done better nutrient research as I know products out there are cheaper and almost same as AN nutes. I do like the fact they aren't afraid to say look we are here to help grow mj.
Just switched the first week I had them I had a 24/0 lights schedule. Just switched to 18/6. To start giving them a break. No clue the age of my plants but I'll go off when I put them in the aero system so 1 week they have been in veg. Plan to veg till my screen is filled. Pictures of each plant and test results as far as ppm and ph comming later tonight.
