re: My First Ebb & Flow Grow

She is doing great so far, looking healthy and strong. I changed the water in the bucket today because of silt from the dirt still attached to the roots. I will be keeping a close eye on things but I'm starting to think this is going to work. I'm finally half satisfied with the equipment and knowledge that I have, so its time to grow some serious buds. I have 1200w of HPS In the grow room, air conditioning, carbon filter, timers for the lights, and I'm transitioning to Hydroponics. Things are finally coming together. All I can ask for now is for some patience and a little bit of luck.

Now as I sit here, burning a bud grown in soil but of the same strain, I can't help but to wonder .... oh the possibilities. ;)

I forgot to mention that I'm aiming for the RH (relative humidity) vegetative state to be 70-75% and down to 55-65% when flowering.

re: My First Ebb & Flow Grow

Well it hasn't been a week but I'm just gonna post a quick update.



I pulled the branches down and hung weights in them. Pretty important tid bit of information I may have forgot to mention was that I topped off the plant just above the 5th set of leaves. I'll be scroging from here on out. I don't like having to pull my lights up for one tall cola so scroging will keep things "level".

Things are running smoothly with the new system. The Plant seams to be thriving in its new environment. It has grown well over 2 inches since its roots were taken from the dirt and places into clay pellets. It's safe to say now that I believe it whent well. I've been checking my PH twice a day. My tap water is 7 so I add PH Down and aim for 5.5 to 5.9. I added 25 ml of 2-3-5, 10ml seaweed, 15ml Epson salt, 10ml 2-1-4, and then 15 ml of 2-11-11. After 12 hours the PH rises to around 6.3

That's all for now. Thanks for reading. I'm looking forward to next weeks update. Later. ;)

Shes doing good so far but growth seams slower then the last 2 days. I added 20 ml of 2-3-5 and 20 ml of 3-2-4. Lets see what happens. Ph was 6.4 at dawn. Adjusted with ph down to 5.6

re: My First Ebb & Flow Grow

Well things are going great. Got my PH and TDS testers in the mail this week. When tested PH was 6.3 Ec was 3.3 and TDS was just bellow 1000 being at 980 PPM.

PH all week was 6.4 in the morning and I've been adjusting to 5.5 with PH down, testing with paper strips. Now that I have testers its so much easier, and with the PPM tester I see that I have been under feeding my girl the whole time. After bringing up the ppm to a little over 1500 ppm it seams to have stableised the soup for the PH reading this morning was 5.7 :hmmmm: Interesting.
Heres a few pictures to get you caught up with the action.


That's all for now folks. Stay safe and be good to one another.
Teach Peace!

How did this grow turn out?

We would love to be updated with some pictures and info.

How about posting a 420 Strain Review?

If you need any help with posting photos, please read our Photo Gallery Tutorial.

I am moving this to Abandoned Journals until we get updates.
