Time to flower?
I've pulled the trigger, and started reducing the light time by half an hour each day. That should put us at full 12/12 by next week 7/6...
Everyone but the 2 thriving clones (the struggling clones were moved outside), got 6gal pots with Sunshine Mix #4 to which I added mycorrhiza. (My shop didn't have BX Pro, but SM4 with Myco was a pretty close match...)
I decided not to top. Will save that for a future grow.
The tallest plant will be hitting 2' at full 12/12 and the smallest will be around 12-16" from the dirt...I decided to go ahead with flowering after reading all of the advice that there can be 2-3x height increase, which for the 2' plants with pot height could have the hoods jacked up to the very top...
On 12/12 day 1 (early morning or late evening) I will be pulling all of the plants out, cleaning the room/hoods/overflow trays, and switching to HPS bulbs!
Curley continues to have what I think is a Ph problem. I adjusted it down, and it curled even more, so I bumped it back up, and will bump it up again this weekend.
I also divided the room in half to keep my HIDs running flower with no polution while I get seedlings started, and do my first clones.
For some reason, I really suck at germinating seeds in soil...it seems to be happening, but extraordinarily slowly... (paper towel is normally a 2-3 day max germ for me...)
I have a tarp-zipper down the center of the new wall, but am still ucertain what I should do for the bottom cuts. (anyone seen shorter zips on the market? I hate to spend $10 for a 7' zip that I cut down to 3'...) Advice here is welcomed, I've been leaning toward magnetic strips glued to the B/W...
That's it for this week, now enjoy a couple of quick pics!
