Those plants are a lovely shade of verdant!
Danke Schöen!!
They seem like they are doing much better since I pulled back a bit.

Mornin y'all.

Strained my snow melt and mixed it 3:2 snow/ tap and after the MC was added I got a pH of 6.35.

Time to:meatballs::meatballs::meatballs:

Snow melt gonna change pH over time.

Do an experiment.

Take pH of fresh snow
take pH of that same snow after it melts (sits out over time).

Gonna be different.

Thanks for the vid on the red/far red lighting.

It's been a thing for a while now in cannabis growing.
I've been using red/far red for several years now with exact same result as what was reported in the vid. Stem elongation and larger yield (biomass) with reduced flowering times.

As mentioned, when testing light output, the measurement tools don't measure far red properly.

I should check it....for science. Lol
I didn't check my melt water until it was already sitting for a few days. My tap drifts from 8.3 down to 7.5 in 24 hrs. I just got used to leaving my water out for a few days before use. Plus its winter where I am and I've already had frozen pipes. I like to have it on hand at all times.

You're welcome for the vid. It's just a happy coincidence that I posted it last night.

Don’t know what took me so long but I’m here now. That’s all that matters right lol?
Indeed, it is.
Welcome to my journal. :ciao: I hop between here and my Asterion
(continuous nonsense) journal.
Just started autos, so as this one wraps up I'll be over there more and more.

Haven't actually seen it. It could just be the trunk of your car for all I know. :laugh:
It actually attaches to the tent. When my wife comes looking for me I use it to quickly go through the Chocolate Willy Roof.

I wonder how sensitive cannabis is??

La Trobe University-led research has found that plants are extremely sensitive to touch and that repeated touching can significantly retard growth.
Research Director of the La Trobe Institute for Agriculture and Food at AgriBio, Professor Jim Whelan, who led the research, said that even the slightest touch activates a major genetic defense response which, if repeated, slows down plant growth.

"The lightest touch from a human, animal, insect, or even plants touching each other in the wind, triggers a huge gene response in the plant," Professor Whelan said.

"Within 30 minutes of being touched, 10 per cent of the plant's genome is altered.

"This involves a huge expenditure of energy which is taken away from plant growth. If the touching is repeated, then plant growth is reduced by up to 30 per cent."

Co-author from La Trobe Dr Yan Wang said that while we don't yet know why plants react so strongly to touch, the new research findings have led to a deeper understanding of the genetic defence mechanisms involved -- opening up new approaches to reducing sensitivity and optimising growth.
"We know that when an insect lands on a plant, genes are activated preparing the plant to defend itself against being eaten," Dr Yang said. "However, insects are also beneficial, so how do plants distinguish between friend and foe?

"Likewise, when plants grow so close together that they touch one another, the retarded growth defence response may optimise access to sunlight.

"So, for optimal growth, the density of planting can be matched with resource input."

Professor Whelan said with this deeper understanding of the genetic mechanisms involved, it may be possible to identify and breed plant varieties which are less touch sensitive while retaining their sensitivity to other factors such as cold and heat.

The research was carried out using Thale Cress -- Arabidopsis thaliana -- though it is likely to be applicable to most plants and crops.

Next steps in the research will be to test touch response in crop species and to look at the potential consequences of breeding plants which are less touch sensitive.

"As we don't understand why plants display such a strong defence response to touch, if we are to breed less touch-sensitive varieties, we need to first understand what some of the consequences might be," Professor Whelan said.

"For example, could touch-resistant plants be more susceptible to disease because a crucial defence mechanism has been removed?"

I'm in serious trouble!
IKR. I give them a little shake in the morning.:laugh::19::laugh::19:
To see if any leaves fall off!!


Oh no!!! I'm so sorry girls. The abuse will stop!!!

How about schlepping twice a day and pulling them all over looking for signs of sex?
If they could press charges they would!!!
