    Re: Planted the clones finally

    It does depend on the plants structure.

    But I will let them get about 12" tall and have about 6 or 8 limbs and then I will top and remove a couple of the very top fan leaves to let light down into the center of the plant and to start getting more vertical growth.

    When I move them into the flower tent I will clean them up a little. A lot of the time I will take the bottom two limbs off and make clones of them and any other growth I know I am not going to be wanting and most times I will take a few of the very top fans off to give light to what will be what I call the second cut.

    I really only what colas and the second cut of good sized bubs just below the colas. I only grow for myself and what I give to my friends. I don't want any popcorn buds.

    So at week 3 of flower(or when stretch stops.) I will lollipop up about 30% and clean out any suckers and anything that is not going to get good light goes.

    That will make the colas and second cut larger and then I am not having to trim or through out popcorn.

    But that is just how I do it. Your needs may be different.

    I pretty much only smoke flower and I want to be smoking the best flower.

    That comes from the colas first and then the second cut.

    Day 21 and they are coming along really good. I trimmed all the old ragged leaves
    from when I planted them and the 2 lowest shoots on each plant the day before yesterday.
    That seemed to slow down growth for the next light cycle.
    They are all 6 to 8 inches tall and look healthy.

    Re: Planted the clones finally

    I added nutrients yesterday its been almost 3 weeks. I started them in water that had a ph of around 6.0 with General Hydroponics Flora Micro and Grow.
    1 tsp of each per gallon each tank has about 15 gallons in it.
    I took a gallon container of water and added 9 tsp of grow 6 tsp of Micro and 3 tsp of bloom. I added the same to both tanks.
    Will this be enough to add once a week from now till its time to flower?
    A TDS meter is on my list.

    Re: Planted the clones finally

    How much water is in your rez when it is full?

    That should be about 2" below the baskets.

    At this point never let the water get any higher then that.

    I keep the same mix through veg and at this point they should be able to take full veg nutes.( but that should be about 50 to 75% of what GH says)

    Are you putting anything in there to keep the root safe like z7 or hydroguard?

    At this point you should get a 5gal bucket to do your mix in and then add it when needed to your rez's

    I let mine run down to just above the stones before I fill back up 2" below the baskets.I also keep a stone it the mix bucket myself.

    If it last for more then a day or two before you need to mix another one.

    Re: Planted the clones finally

    When I planted them the water level was about 1/4" above the bottom of the baskets. It dropped to about 1/2" below the baskets.
    The gallon I added brought it up maybe 1/8". So its about 3/8" below the baskets. They are growing fast so the level should start to drop soon.
    I don't want to add to much nutes do you have experience with Flora nutes?

    I started out on what you are using and then moved to Botanicare Kind.

    GH will work fine.

    But you need something to keep your roots safe.

    Re: Planted the clones finally

    Oh and I added more to what I wrote before.

    You should be at about 50 to 75% of what GH says.

    That can be important.

    You do not want to burn them.

    Make them ask for for food before you give it to them.

    I took a couple pics they are doing well.
    How do you know they are asking for food?

    Re: Planted the clones finally

    They are doing great!!

    They will get pale if they need more food.

    Those look very happy with what they are getting.

    But remember it that there is a delay in what we see.

    I am very worry about you not having something in the water to protect the roots.

    That is a real big deal in DWC without a chiller.

    I had a lot of issues with root rot and slime when I first started DWC.

    The plant would look fine and then the next day the roots could be cover in slime.

    Please try to fine some like Z7 water treatment(i think is the best thing for you) or Hydroguaurd or something like that.

    I do not want to see what happened to me happen to you.

    You could have a really nice plant in the morning and it be on the ground that night.

    It happened to me.

    That really sucked and it would take out all the plants in that rez at the same time and I mean it could happen over night.

    Bamm they are toast or set back for weeks.

    So I say Please get something. I want to see to you have a great crop....
