That looks like a lot of work to clean up. Very nice plants though!!
Thanks tf, that was me who asked. Looks like a pretty big root system thx
Couple of Q's TC, I've followed your grows, is that just the perfect single cola strain? How do you get just a top to bottom single cola with no branching? The strains I run don't grow at all like that. I started my latest batch with the panda film over the tray as I have excessive humidity issues, no problems 1 week in. how's your cover working out?
...it isn't just a characteristic of the strain, but also the technique used to grow the strain that makes single colas....how long do you veg your ladies? Al's growing technique here is called a SoG.....we trip our clones into flower with very little veg life, resulting is smaller plants. A lollipop (pruning of the lower branches) occurs during early flowering to redirect all growth to the cola....hth....and get your light as close as possible (I aircool).
...what strain are you growing? I personally like to grow Indica dominate strains.
...the panda cover has been one of my greatest improvments ever to the op!
Trichrome, I notice you have some nitrogen toxicity in your latest pics and I'm curious to know a solution as I have had the same problems. I use botanicare cns 2 part nutrient formula. The directions recommend a 50-50 mix of veg and flower nutes during the transition. I recirculate my reservoir for 2 weeks. It takes roughly a week to show sex.
The first time I filled my reservoir to 1100 ppm using 500 ml grow and 500 ml bloom. This literally wiped out 4 of my weakest plants, and I got massive clawing on the rest. Next rotation, I went with 300 ml grow and 700 ml bloom. This time went a LOT better but I still have toxicity symptoms, mainly the claw.
My question is, what should I do? I have to have grow nutes in my res for 2 weeks. Should I lower the amounts to 200 - 800, or possibly put grow nutes in for only the second week of the first two weeks of flowering?
...if your having plant issues I'd first make sure your meters are calibrated and accurate, then flush and start a new res....I've never used those fertz you speak of so I wouldn't be any help there...I use GH's, Flora series now days and I've never found any magic concoctions that are of any better performance....I've come to the conclusion that most 3 part fertz works out pretty much the same, the N/P/K are only slightly different between name brands...all the extra bottles of shit I've bought outside of the 3 parts became what-nots.
