I include the base PPM of 400 in my count. (We have a soft water system and it comes out of the line at 400 PPM)
The lights are 16" from plants giving a 32" x 32" area of coverage at the screen level.

Some of the leaves are showing nute burn. yellowing on some of the leaves. I had dropped the PPM to 1300. Maybe I should go lower?

I am reading the yellowing could be light burn? I had been trying out 20/4. I am considering trying the 13/5/1 option to see if it changes anything.

I'm hoping you got a good pineapple chunk pheno. Me and a few other guys got ours last year and they were bad. Mine flowered for 18 weeks, could have gone 20, and it was 4 ounces of garbage. But that was a batch from March 2014, so you should be good.

You might want to see about getting an actual cal/mag supplement, cause your calcium nitrate has high nitrogen, which will hurt you in flower.

It's easier to add magnesium than change light schedule. If the plants are too close to the light, it won't matter if it's 13 hours or 20 hours, they'll still get burned. And if it's magnesium and you keep going without it, the plants will get a lot worse fast

I ordered some GH calmag. Also I read this could be caused by my soft water system. I makes my water come out at 450ppm salt. So I ordered an RO setup....

Hope all is well in your world.

Is this grow still alive?

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.

Sending you lots of love and positive energy.

Yeah, i vegged it way too long and it ended up overgrowing the tent because its only a 5 foot tent. Im currently working on getting a mom going for a SOG with 3 x 3 foot flood drain tray with this same light and another 4x4 tray in a larger tent with the P9-XML2 from platinumLED. Havent gottent the big light yet, maybe they can hook me up with a discount. Ill make a new journal when the clones and new set up are ready.
