Okay ladies and gentlemen here goes. I have only been reading up until this point, here is my setup. I'm presently on day 10.

RH of Room/cab? 45-55%

Water - tap (rested for 3 days min.)
Any Pests ? No
How often are you watering . Every 3-4 days...using weight to determine.

re: Short Ryder Auto & Bubba Kush - 1st grow

So I started all of my seeds in a cup and water. Followed by the paper towel method on top of my hot water heater. 2 days later I had sprouted. Straight to rapid rooters and into the dome under 1 400w led. 3 short rider autos and 3 bubba kush were what I ended up germinating. I plan on raising them all to about 30-45 days and then separating the 2 strains and putting the BK into another cabinet that I am retrofitting to allow me to veg and flower in two adjacent units. This way I can train (LST) etc.....with no potential for me to trample anything. Now my girls are on day 10. I watered with the DNF grow yesterday for the first time at 1ml/ litre.

I kinda have two spaces, not two dedicated tents though. The pictures are showing the different light that I purchased more than anything. I also have a wall mounted cabinet that I am presently retrofitting into a veg space. Once my autos get to the flowering stage, I'll be switching the BK'S out of here and into it. This tent will keep the 1600W LED and complete my autos and my new cabinet (18"×40"×60"T), will have the twin 400W LED'S.

Might pinch tonight depending on growth today........

Day 12
Covered plant with a beer cup and gave each a good drink tonight..... looking like the last time I'll be able to do this. These short Rider Autos are supposed to flower for 45 days and they're done so I better get on top of my topping and my LST. Everything's looking really good though comma Dolores is just showing her fourth node already.


Not to be outdone, the BK's are catching up in size although not quite showing the fourth node yet. I'm going to start my lsts over the weekend.

I do see a little bit of tip discoloration but I am still new to this and I'm dialing things in accordingly. Please let me know if you see anything that I need to pay attention to? This is 1600 watt Mars LED kicks ass!

Lets see a picture of the discoloration on the tips. It's likely either nute burn or the light is to close. If its nutes the bottom leaves will discolor first and move up the plant. If its light burn then it will start on the top leaves.

Otherwise they're looking pretty decent right now.:welldone:

I've only fed once and at 1/4 strength so it must be the light. I've been trying to dial it in. I started at 30" away and I was down to 20".....I lift it back up and make a note in my log. The tip discolouration is likely me just being paranoid......I promised myself I wouldn't be "one of those guys", lol.
