2 x 150w hps 53 days flower w/pics *BAGSEED* in the
The Grow Room forums; First grow hempy style 3 gallon pots w/techna flora nutes, perlite, & bagseed. Light is 2x150w hps. Here are a ...
look good for bagseed IMO what lighting setup ya got there?
LEts see that setup!?@
First thing tonight i'll take some new pics when lights come on. I'll give ya the outline of my setup here though:
2 x 4 gallon buckets w/hempy hole 2" up on the side
1 x 3 gallon trash can w/hempy hole 2" up on the side
2 x 150w HPS e-conolights remote ballasted w/ $0.99 extension cords
Reflector is 2 x Large baking pans. 1 lamp in each pan
Fan is a 197 CFM "mixvent" (basically an inline fan) S&P td-125 which draws fresh air into the dresser & blows across both bulbs.
Nutes are techna flora's recipe for success. I'm only using @ 50% strength & rarely do I use all of the products....really seems to burn the shit out of them so i'm just using the bloom, boost, & sugar daddy which works out well.
Cab is an old dresser that sits in a hidden closet. I hollowed it 'er out & it houses the lamps, fan, & bitches.
Unfortunately I haven't finished the cab due to lazieness & there is currently no door on the front of it so all of the heat just dissipates out the front....not exactly a sophisiticated exhaust system for now but hey it works. The plan was to cooltube these 2 150's but the damn candle shade I got isn't long enough for both lamps so i've decided to just go for the gusto & get the euro reflector 6" model off of htgsupply for about $100. I plan to mount both 150's in there (macgyuver style) & the td-125 will separately air cool the lamps from the cab (once the door is up!). On top I have the exhaust port for the cab to breathe w/a zen style DIY carbon filter out of a cone-style air filter (auto store). There will be a $30 6" duct fan sitting on top of that exhaust hole which will be sucking the stale air out through the carbon filter & drawing new air in through the passive intakes. Germed in paper towels & then moved into 1" rw cubes in humidome then to 16 oz party cups & bog transfered to their final home. Nothing but distilled water for these girls also. Stay tuned for pics of the setup!

Sorry the the lack of update last night but i'll have the setup pics 2night. That sugar daddy smells something terrible but the buds are hardening up & showing more density. Leaves are curling under so they've been burned a bit but the budsites look terrific...no sign of dead calyxes or anything like that. Next watering which I think will be tonight (drinking much more rapidly now) they will get just ph'd distilled water to dissipate some of the residual salts that may be buit up. I don't believe a flush is necessary b/c the burning isn't that extensive. My smallest bitch has the most dense buds & she is the one that is reacting more to the overnute situation but all in all I think we're looking good. I think the most important lesson I learned from this is with nutrients, LESS IS MORE! I think next time i'll only use a 3 part nute regimen & only give micro nutrients once/month or as needed b/c I used WAY too many products this time. God only knows how high my ppm was back when I was using 6 products in 1 gallon of water (ugly just to hear isn't it?)...anyways, pics tonight!
shit looks good man. you can tell them ladies are almost done... keep it up.... Pe@ce.
Can you take a picture with the hps's off and some white light on? I think you have a serious issue with a nutrient deficiency even though some of your plants you describe as having nute burn and leaves curling under. Those spots of necrosis, dead leaf material all over, are not good.
But your grow overall is nice and the nugs are going to be sweet, good job overall you just need to figure out what micronutrient deficiency you have or maybe the ph has been off or something like that.

Yes it seems I have a phantom problem here that I haven't been able to identify. My hunch is overnute b/c i'm using that darn recipe for success from techna flora & like a dolt I used every damn product in there for 3 or 4 feedings in a row and burned 'em pretty good. After that, I found out that you're supposed to do a feed, water, water, feed type of regimen....yeah, I didn't do that either untill just about 4 weeks into flower so my newbie hunch is thinking it's the nutes. I was using awesome blossoms, sugar daddy, thrive alive b1-red, b.c. bloom, & b.c. boost, & cal-mag....scary isn't it? Now i'm only using the b.c. bloom, b.c. boost, & sugar daddy @ 50% strength. I do a feed, water (w/sugar daddy), water (w/sugar daddy), feed now. My batteries are charging on my cam now so i'll have some pics with the daylight cfl in the morning....that daylight spectrum really shows a lot more than that orange hps.
