Fire OG under PAR/PUR T5's 2nd Grow, Flowering Grow Journal
Before I start this journal, I just want to say thanks to the folks who have allready helped me. I am quickly finding myself obsessed with growing now and as some other have said I now agree with. Smoking MJ is not addictive, growing is. Anyways, a bit of background of the grow before I show some pics. I am currently growing 3 Fire OG's under 6 Aquarium T5's set up in a PAR/PUR spectrum set.

1 Fiji Purples
2 Chrome Middays
1 Coral Wave
When I got my Fiji's for some reason a coal wave was in the sleave not a purple, so am waiting on the replacement that the shop I buy from said they will give me for free when their bulb order gets in.
I am using Earth Juice SeaBlast Transition for nutes, in their constant feeding program and flushing with water every 3 feedings.

I have been dealing with a spider mite issue, after I hit them with might wash they seem to have all died on the leaves but now I am seeing them in the soil so have been treating that since last night. Hoping that I will keep that under control. I am using VermiSoil from Vermi-Organics as my medium, and the girls are in 1.5 Gallon AirPots.
I am planing on taking new pics every day so I can make a time lapse of the first pic of the girls, only because I thought it would be fun for me personaly to see them grow before my eyes. Any advice or imput will be much appreciated. Thanks.
Just one more quick thing, went ahead and started germiin some Pineapple Punch seeds for the next crop. I am hoping for 2 females and 1 male from it, but if they end up all being male when I get to em, will go ahead and flower em out and get some pollen to save for next time. if i get what i am hoping for going to flower em with the male staying and get myself some more seeds for future projects I have planed.
nice vigor mate plants are all looking perky , good to see a scogg style, it will help with your yield!! those lights seem to be doing the job man, keep it up
Looks good man, I'll be following along.
My advice for the mites: don't let up. You just started flowering, I'd recommend using neem oil with azamax and a pyrtethrin spray up to 2 weeks in, then just the aza/pyrethrin sprays. Never used mighty wash, I'm sure you could replace any of the 3 products I mentioned with it. Point is, alternate one treatment every 3-4 days for a few weeks(4-5) to get all the linger-ers. You don't want them coming back at week 8 when you really don't wanna be spraying your buds if you don't have to.
Yeah no doubt on that about the mites. I am almost too anal about it. now that I know i have mites i seem to go in the damed room every hour or so with my microscope looking for em. Just cant get em off my mind. As for the lights, I stumbled on the LED without LED's thread when I was figuring out what lights I wanted to buy and man am I glad I did. I just hope the flowering goes as I am hoping for and then I have my light spectrums right. Thanks for subing, and I do appreciate the comments and the help.
So I have been doing a bit more research and I am starting to wonder if the mites in the soil that I thought were spider mites might infact be soil mites. I am not seeing any damage from spider mites or and damage as if it was root aphids, and they are slightly larger then the spider mites that I did have on the leaves prior were. they also dont seem to be trying to go up into the stem, just wandering around in the soil. I know if they are soil mites it is a good thing since they are benifitial, but I am not sure how to tell if that is what they are for sure. Anyone have some advice. I would take a pic, but i cant figure out how to make my camera work with my magnifier.
Mites are a motherfucker. Try liquid ladybug that stuff works pretty good.
Subbin up, on board man, let's see the magic!
Thanks Brother. Love how you allways give good advice. 40 mins till my lights go on and i cant wait to go in there lol
