This will be my 1st attempt at growing some real medicine. Right now I've got them under 7 5000k 26/100 watt bulbs with 2 2700k 26/100 in there to broaden the light spectrum. Roughly 230 watts of real power. Plans are to flower a couple of the purps under cfl's after I build a better light setup and build a 4 x 4 x7 tent and go with either a 400 or 600 watt hps system and flower the rest there. I'm reading 4 to 6 hrs a day on here trying to learn all I can. This site obviously has some great people
Decided on the FFOF soil and did a replant today. Ph in the runoff was 8 or better in all the pots and that ain't good. Now their all snuggled into their new Ocean Forest soil. I gave each plant about 16oz of distilled water with 1 drop of Superthrive to help with shock in a gallon ph'ed to 6.5. Added 1 more 26 watt 5000k bulb to help cover all the babies with some good vegin' light. Is that alot of work for everyone else or am I that far outta shape? Tired, but happy now. Thanks again for all
Don't have the tool for testing ppm yet but I would guess it's WAY above 190. I haven't drank a glass of that water in a long time. My ph levels jumped from 6.7 /6.9 up to the high 7's and low 8's after 1 watering with the water ph'ed down to 6.4. I just did a test (cheap wallyworld 19.99 digital ph tester) on the organic soil and organic booster i mixed up with perlite (3 to 1 to 1), the soil was ok at 7.1 but the compost booster has a ph of 9.1. I'm not gonna panic but with my leaves starting
Camera is on the charge right now, I'll pop some pics later today. Diesel was a little sparse on the leaves but they're starting to respond to the little bit of nutes i fed them and fill in. Same with the blueberry. The purps and maui are bushing out nicely. I'll be making my own tent setup soon for the 400 watter and will be plenty happy with the potential results, I want to make sure I stay within the state laws here. My main goal in all of this is to get off these damn oxycodones before they
Babies are coming along nicely, minor ph problems from mistakenly thinking my well water would be ok. Only distilled water until I get a reverse osmosis water system. Looking at getting a 400 watt hps system for flowering stage. Time for more reading and research, back to RIU university!!!
