    Re: The Mountain - Grow Support From The Over 50 Club

    Hello again. I have a 4x4 tent. At the risk of being censored by mentioning brands I have 2 Mars Hydro II 900s, 1 300W LED, and 1 Viparspectra Reflector 450. I'm currently using 1 Mars Hydro and the 300W LED. My 3 plants are a few weeks into flower. One is a good half foot taller and I've put the P300 on top of that and the Mars Hydro covering the other 2. Older pic below. Not much room to the sides of my tent where the two plants are and bud sites are fairly evenly spread across.

    I am very happy with how things are going, so obviously I can't leave it alone. The Mars 900 should cover about 80% of the tent for flower, but that doesn't fit well with the variable heights. I want to space them out as much as I can to get as wide a canopy as I can. Would I actually hurt my plants if I used both Mars lamps at the recommended height? Am I better off elevating the two to equalize with the taller? Just leave it? Something else.

    Hi Calvados, you could try rearranging your plants and leave the Mars Lamp over the tallest, hang the P300 at an angle to even out the light levels (it doesn't have to be flat, I've even seen similar banks of LED's hung like a teepee.

    Hi, I could use some insight. My seedling are 3 1/2 weeks old and started showing some deficiency. I fed them about 40 hours ago and don't see much change. Will the leaves return to normal or will they remain like this with healthy new growth. Also since it was so weak should I feed again or water next? Thanks!
    Ps the spots are light burn. Already fixed that.

    Hiya folks. I have a question for you all. I have an outbreak of fungus gnats. I'm using
    sticky traps, but I also wanted to use hydrogen peroxide, which I read would kill the larvae.
    However: when I transplanted I used mycorrizal fungi. Will the hydrogen peroxide kill the
    micorrhizal fungi?. Thanks, Rolypoly.

    Waited to see if anyone else would reply first since I only have limited knowledge.......but here's something I've learned....I see maybe 1 fungus gnat every week or so, so I don't really stress over it.....I learned from someone to get a fan under there, have it so it's forcing air between the underneath part of the canopy and is also hitting the top of the soil in your pots.....I'm able to accomplish this with only 1 6" clip on fan...like I say I see maybe 1 every week or so, never see any sign of a problem though

    Ol' man long time grower.
    I am running straight Canna Coco.
    During early veg stage then the roots have yet to fill the top of the pot I get coco movement when hand watering. When switched to auto irr., I run this,

    and the irri. creates wells in the coco.

    As you can see I just put a 1" plus layer of Clay Pellets on the surface to stop the coco movement, stop the wells when using auto system and I believe it will allow the roots to completely fill the pot even to the surface, ie. hold moisture a bit better.

    Am I wrong in my thinking and is adding the clay pellets going to cause a problem further into the grow?

    I am 39 days from sprout.
    This is a five plant vertical grow with stacked 315W CMH and binding the plants to screens. At present, running one lamp vertical and one lamp horizontal until I achieve the height I am looking for then will change the horizontal light to vertical.

    This is a pic of how I bind the plants to the screens.

    Hey Roly, I killed off my gnats with Gnatrol The product was developed in Israel where they discovered a stomach parasite inside larvae. It kills the larvae and nothing else. The yellow tangle-foot sticky traps catch more than the white strips. Also sprinkling dolomite on the surface presents sharp edges that discourage adults from landing on the soil. Two or three treatments wiped out my infestation. I also treat my aloe vera plants for the gnats.
    Happy growing,

    Hey Domina, I generally used nutes every other watering and I think you're on the right track might want to bump up the cal mag a little and I usually push a few galvanized nails into my soil to increase the zinc levels to the roots. Here's a chart that might help troubleshoot.

    PS: Pretty grim username but NICE handwriting!

    The mottled leaves are Mg deficiency. See that you're using couple of Nectar products. You'd be better off getting Demeter's Destiny for Ca & its ability to use Mg from the peat or coco, which are both loaded with it. Also get Herculean Harvest...a must in Nectar. In Nectar pH at 6.0 to 6.2 in veg. Your 89 ppm is too weak. Bump it up to ~500. Feed again when soil ppm is 300-500 (700 scale). Suggest more Nectar line & omit the EJ CaMg.
