I would recommend changing from fox farms to General Hydroponics if you're looking to save money on nutes. Thats what i did and am still having wonderful growth. My nutes will last much longer too.

What light are those, viparspectra 600's ?

Seed - Amnesia FAST
The product is a breeding programme between Soma's Amnesia and a top secret hybrid strain from SeedsMan that I can not disclose. It is 70% sativa and 30% Indica. This is a potent and productive marijuana strain with high THC levels. Amnesia FAST can be cultivated both indoors and outdoors and grows to a height of between 100 - 150 cm. tall. Harvest time is at the end of September in the northern hemisphere which gives a fairly wide zone of cultivability. If planted into the ground it will grow a good deal bigger than if grown indoors in pots. Yields are very good at about 550 - 600 gr/m2 indoors with flowering taking between 55 - 58 days. There are marked similarities between this strain and the original Amnesia although the aroma is somewhat fruitier with some floral notes. THC levels have been measured at between 20 - 23% giving a very potent effect that strikes a nice balance between indica and sativa. Despite its power it remains a very uplfting and creative high.

GENETICS Soma's Amnesia x Secret Hybrid
VARIETY Mostly Sativa
SEX Feminised
THC CONTENT 20 - 23%
YIELD Indoors: 550 - 600 gr/m2
PLANT HEIGHT 100 - 150 cm.
GROWS Indoors, Outdoors
FLOWERING TIME 55 - 58 days
HARVEST MONTH end September
TASTE / FLAVOUR Flowery, Fruity

Dear Jack420,

No, these seeds I did them different and just popped them in. Cause I wanted to try something try a different method on germinating. (hate using the water cup and towel method cause you make one mistake drop the seed, rip some root fibers from sprout) To be honest I'm having this sinking feeling I should have just stuck (Not using the Heat Mat anymore if it's not cold) to what I know then do all the extra. Good side is that this is an experience and learning lesson. I'm trying to break out of the status quo going to have allot of armature fails.
