day 11- OG Kush Sprouted
biggest news today was that the OG kush finally sprouted. went in and made couple small changes today to the setup. i raised the plants higher to the light and added the aluminum foil over the top of the cool tube as i was proposing doing in a different thread yesterday. i know the risks of hotspotting, etc, but if you compare photos i feel like it is concentrating the light way better down on the girls. if it causes problems it will only take 2 seconds to take off so no biggie.
also going out and getting a water ph tester today with ph up and down.

edit- i got the nutes today and fed each plant excluding the og sprout with 8 oz of water with 1/8 of the recommended strength Grow Big and Big Bloom nutrients

day 13 update
watered last night with only big bloom nutrients. it says safe enough to use every feeding so i figured id just go with that this time around. they look SLIGHTLY nute burned from the first feeding (too early?) but its all good, growth is still quick and abundant. here are some pics
all the girls
also transplanted the OG last night. she's thriving too. more updates when some other stuff happens.. this is the boring part of the grow, i know....
watered the OG sprout. going to water rest of the ladies tonight. everything looks healthy and normal. pics in another couple days
planning to start 12/12 in 6 days. temps have been staying between 78-82... i'd prefer mid 70s but its been easy to keep it at 80 so i'm not complaining. humidity hangs between 35-48
edit- watered the rest of the girls tonight around 10 pm. moved them closer to the light now. probably only 10 inches away from light. i will be monitoring for changes since they are closer now. i put my wrist under it and it didn't burn and I've been told on here that that is a good way to tell if it is too hot for your babies. updates to come...

Looks good bro keep up the good work I started feeding nutes since i germinated so yea... They look healthy though.
thanks for stopping by crash. my soil is heavily fertilized (says feeds 9 months?) so i was worried about burn... ill post some pics in tomorrow's update and well get the consensus.. some leaves look burned to me but as i said before its extremely slight

Hey man nice grow I see ur running 400 watts I recently purchased a 3x3 tent & wanaa run with a 400 as well the tents inline holes r 6 in wud I need a 6 in inline fan to keep my teps down?or can I use a 4in inline fan instead?I wana have perfect tempts or atleast cose hopefully u can answer my question dude n sorry for hijackin ur thread bro just a question so I can get things going
yea my holes are setup for 6 inches but with 4 inch ducting it still fits snug... my cool tube is 6 inches so i use 6 to 4 inch duct reducers on each side and one pulls air from top of tent, the other side pulls across the light and out the top to the exhaust 4 inch inline. my temps are 77-84 during lights on and i have a 5,000btu air conditioner unit running high during the day on max and it keeps it 82 tops. my room is like 9x8 ft. my daytime weather here is like 85-high 80s with high humidity. hope this helps, let me know if i can further assist, you aren't thread jacking. i hope i can help
if you can run a cool tube or air cooled hood, or some kind of ventilation that keeps temps right regarding your setup, you can put the light hella close. my light is like 12 inches away and still temps are 84 canopy level tops ever and that isn't for more than a couple of hours. after moving them that close after having em about 18 inches away growth has TAKEN OFF. keep plants close!! I'm already envisioning what kind of growth I've lost already ..
staying positive. keep going friends
