Hey guys thanks again for stopping by to checkout my journal. Once again, any and all comments and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
So I'm just starting week 5 of flowering and the girls are really starting to mature nicely. I went ahead and changed my reservoir today (I'm using aprox. 32-35 gallons), which was a Bitch! Spent half the day hauling 5 gallon buckets of water back and forth between my tent and bathroom. So I emptied, washed, and refilled the reservoir - then I ran Clearex for one hour to flush the system and plants to make sure I got rid of any salt/nute build up. The soil plants on the right also got 2-3 quart flush of Clearex solution. Then I re-emptied, washed, and refilled to 32 gallons and added my nutes. I'm using the Technaflora Recipe for Success Kit(B.C. Grow/Bloom/Boost, MagiCal, Sugar Daddy, Thrive Alive-B1 Red, and Awesome Blossoms). To be honest I absolutely LOVE the kit. It includes everything I need to ensure I don't mess up my grow through stupid nute/feeding practices. They include a very easy to follow chart and so far my plants are responding well to it. The clones are finished and ready to be potted but I'm stuck waiting on a shipment of pots and materials (tray/growing medium ect.). So as soon as those get in i'll make sure to throw my clones over. The mother is pretty much dead and not showing signs of recovery. I'll end up using 4 clones as mothers so I don't get stuck without a mom again (I've had three different mothers die, 1 bugs, 2-unknown cause but I suspect either nute lockout or sometype of stress induced death that resulted after I took clones from them.) I'm currently debating the best system to put my mothers in, if anyone has a good 4 to 6 plant mother site that is easy to construct shoot me the plans I would greatly appreciate any help I could get. And finally my two California orange seeds are coming along nicely, I'll throw them under the MH veg bulb here in a few days. Thats all for now I'll post another update next week hopefully with another tray in the room, with some fresh plants.
