Seed specs pic , shows 500 grams m2 .
The tent is a gorilla 5’x5’ with the hydro flood and drain , 1000watt mh/hps ! Going to double that 500 grams ! Sticking with Advanced Nutrients thru the flower stages and organic nutrients URB. I did a grow with 25% nutrients and 50% nutrients. These were done under a 750 true watt LED. 25% nutrients yielded 11 ozs, 50% nutrients yielded 15 ozs of white widow. Going to up the nutrients 50% for the first two weeks, 3-5 weeks at 100% , week 6 -50% and week 7 -25% nutrients. Pics

More pics from March 31 then April 2,4,9,11 , added tf nutrients 20% on the fourth, five days after roots showed . The 12th changed the water and added the URB with no nutrients, the girls were drooping the next morning. Pennywise and MrSauga brought it to my attention it needed nutrients. Fed them and 2 hours later standing at attention. Thanks again to InTheShed , PW and MrSauga for the save ! Pics on the 16,17,and moved the girls to the tent the 24th , 28th did a lst four tops showing on the two bigger plants and today’s pic.

Tomorrow we are going to tie these girls down . Cut both the big girls lst and can see the four main tops already! The lower nodes are almost level with the main tops !
Put the week two of URB in last night 100 mL
Per 20 gallons of ro water . The runt is coming on up , hadn’t caught up with the rest but I’ll bet it does ! It gets its lst tomorrow also ! Hopefully it will get trained in 18 more days to max out in the bud sites . Pics

In the #2 post I put 750 true watts , I was wrong it’s 430 watts .
The Chemdawg x Hindu Kush = OG Kush

Subbed up. I'm trying to learn more on this hydro stuff so just gonna relax and watch the show...
Please do , this flood and drain is a little crazy . Found the perfect watering for an led . Then went to mh/hps way thirsty for some sawed off plants !

I always start with my LEDS, but quickly switch over to the HID. I just love the flexibility with getting heat when I need it and still getting good penetration.
In my soil less 5gals it's around 3-4 days between feedings during med-late veg.

Thanks Carcass, that’s the first thing I learned when I started 420 . Pennywise started me on 25% on the first grow and just stuck with it all the way through flower . Now I’m using the URB organic in hydro plus 50% nutrients in veg .
Ro water calmag nutrient goes in at 100% then another 30 mL in three days can save that butt in hydro.
Any time now I’ll forget something

Day 36 of veg 18/6
Haven’t used Z7 in the tent , used it in the cloner .
Outside temp 67 humidity 89% SE 4 mph
Tent temp 80 humidity 62%
Building temp 69.3 humidity 74% the exhaust fan also comes on 15 minutes every hour . The cooling fan for the hid comes on 15 minutes before the light and cuts off 30 minutes after lights out. The girls seem to like the light at 18” instead of 12” . This one plant has looked mangled since it sprout . I think they dropped the wrong seed into the OG package !
Water temp 70.8 down 3/4 gallon Falling temp still a little high!
TDS 618 ppm was 686 ppm Falling wow these eating habits are great , never had any thing this small eat that much . What is it the light or URB?
Ph 5.9 Static
Calcium and magnesium butt heads in hydro at 5.8 ph and manganese goes in at 5.6 ph and less , potassium also runs with the magnesium in ph ! I believe Advanced Nutrients has it figured out start at 5.5 and rise to the occasion of 5.9 for the last of the weekly change, I don’t think I ought to dump the reservoir till two or three days after it hits 5.9 !
These tech flora nutrients start me at a 6.1 ph so I decided to give it three days after the change to lower the ph to 5.5-5.6 .
Changed out all yellow sticky tabs , since soil gal is in the jar and the bucket is 100’ away no bugs . Re-wired the girls down , they broke free last night ! There will be plenty clones off of these , the fim at the fifth node .

Pic , have two leaves on one plant shows a lack of calcium and or mn. ph level has been too high at 5.9 .
Still mixing

TF grow 130 mL
TF thrive 40 mL
TF magical 50 mL
TF sugar daddy 140 mL
7.5 mL of acid

Day 38 of veg 18/6
Outside temp 72 humidity 96% SE 4 mph
Building temp 68.5 humidity 77%
Tent temp 77 humidity 65%
Water temp 71.9 down 3/4 gallon Falling
TDS 928 ppm was 1019 ppm Falling
Ph 5.6 Static
Add the URB today 5 mL to a gallon x 20=
A N Nutrients run till gone , will still have TF nutrients for back up.
Comparing prices on Dyna-Gro, moreTF , or other .
Still holding down the girls to 8” , retie shortly! They filled out big time !
The ph has been easy to adjust since I pulled the 4-4” air stones out of the reservoir. Listened to @InTheShed tell about it and the ph . Have two circulation pumps (one for mixing and the other for running 24/7 ) no need for the bubbles.
Still don’t get this one plant narrowly looking!
April 24 girls moved to the tent pic and today May 7 pic
