Week 5 day 3 of flower - What tips can you offer a newbie in the final hour?
As the title states...I'm nearing the end of my first real medical grow and things are progressing along nicely and buds are fattening up and I feel like I have things dialed in pretty well but I've never really made it this far with a grow this nice and I started thinking....am I missing something? Is there something I should be doing or should do soon? When should I begin flushing? Should I cut down lights on to 10.5 hours? Should I use an actual flushing additive? Should I continue using floralicous plus all the way through the flush?
I've been using GH line of nutes along with floralicious plus...
Thanks for all your help fellas (and ladies)....jonny never could have made it this far without RIU!
Yeah your missing Pics pics pics. I just knew you had some nice beautiful shots up in here some where to show what stage your at and what you should be at????? where they at?
Dibs on FDD's first blown usable glass....
Ya wanna know why we want pics??? At this stage I thro out the calendar, recommended nutes, all that Horseshit. And read/listen /watch my gurls. Leaves yellowing ? Dirt or hydro? Is there a reason outside of doneness to chop? I.e money,space,want to reveg as moms?
Pics would be helpful. One thing I can throw out there without looking at a pic is to watch your bud density, relative to the humidity in your flower room. This time of year shouldn't be bad, but if your humidity is up around 55% or higher in your room, and you have nice dense flowers, mold could become an issue and you won't even know it until you start trimming.
A couple pointers to help avoid moldy buds:
-Try to keep some air flow circulating towards the tops of the plants (where the most dense buds are). I use an oscillating fan.
-If you are defoliating, try to leave the stem of the leaf intact. If you pluck a fan leaf, and break it off inside the cola, it will cause "sap" to form where the break was made, and that moisture inside the cola will be ideal for mold spores to take hold.
-Never done this myself, but I've read where people will stick toothpicks in the cola in an effort to open it up a bit, and separate the individual flowers within the cola to allow airflow to penetrate.
I agree with homeless, even different phenotypes of the same strain will harvest at different windows. get the microscope out and check out them trichs. I generally look for the very beginnings of cloudy trichs which signals the 2 week flush for me and I always end up with 10-30% amber trichs at harvest after flush.

all my pics are there from beginning to current. I'll be posting new pics tonight after lights on @ 7. The most recent are 4-5 days ago I think. I'm growing in dirt and have been using GH flora micro, flora bloom, and flora veg for the base nuts and recently been using floralicous plus every feeding and every watering. I water, water, feed, water, water, feed...600w hps and I'm growing in a tent 3x3x6.
I suppose I did leave out some details eh?
Thanks for the info stow...good shit in that post. I'll put it to good use. As a matter of fact, I just purchased another clip on fan tonight from the dro shop to put above the canopy as I am trying to maintain excellent air circulation to inhibit mold growth. That makes a total of 2 fans above the canopy and 1 fan below the canopy blowing fresh air upwards into the canopy....that on top of the 200cfm inline fan exhausting through my carbon filter should provide adequate airflow.
growroom etiquette to avoid bud damage.
"don't squeeze the charmin". it's a nearly an irresistible urge that must be avoided (i keep a machete close). smell the underling buds. good times
As requested...new buddage pics. Just installed new 6" clip on fan above the canopy. Oh it's so sexy...yes, oh yes. Good ventilation gives me a quarter chub I tell ya what
