    i had it in plain 180ppm water for about 2.5 weeks prior to harvest, so the smoke was really smooth, but still not as smooth as other strains that flush that long. i think the smoke is just sorta thicker than other flowers. i would say two fat bong rips and you will stare off into the computer screen and catch yourself daydreaming. it's very potent. it has less of a kushy taste then the pre98, but it still has a kush taste, as well as the coffee/cream type flavor. when you leave the room and come back to where a hit was taken, it stinks like kush.

    my bubba would not turn yellow. i posted a thread about it here

    http://www.rollitup.org/t/lucas-formula-question-about-high-ppm.861637/

    and its the really green plant in the second and third picture farthest away from the camera lens, so at the top of the photos. it flushed for so long and stayed pure green up til harvest. my bubba smells a little like vegetables/greenery, the bx2 is a superior plant compared to my specific pre98 bubba. both of them are still not what i would consider dank smelling strains. i prefer citrus, lemony plants. i grew a New York Diesel out that smells like the crappiest worst grapefruit in the world, so i threw the genes away. in my experience, citrus is the best terpene.. limonene i think it is, same as in oranges.

    i picked up three more strains, berry og, royal purple kush, and og kush. gotta bonsai mom them out and take cuttings, so probably wont see a harvest for a few months. i hear the reserva privada og kush i got is real lemony, im excited.

    I have his pre 98, only wish I would have ordered a full pack to get a better yielder, but every bubba I have or had does not yield much. Alot of genetics nowadays herm, its the fact that every stoner kept good bag seeds, grew them out etc. So now we have washed down regulars everywhere, not just one breeder. But thats part of growing pot imo.

    My goji og does the same but I gave a three week flush. Do you still use the Lucas formula? I'm using flora nova series right now might make the change flora might be too organic. Royal,purple Kush sounds bomb dignity. Peace

    yeah my new round is all in lucas again. last time, i kept adding gallons of nuted water as they drank. this time, i'm going to top them off with tap water and monitor the ppm more closely, and add nuted water to keep ppms at 1200. however, the way i did it last time gave me outstanding results, even though the bottom gallon would be 3000ppm before i added 2 more. 8ml/16ml was my dosage, others use less.

    micro and bloom are really cheap, i pay 32$ a gallon on amazon, i think the two gallons will last over a year easily. i harvested 8 plants and used 1/4 of my gallons. well i actually harvested 7 and still have a headband going on 10 weeks 4 days, i want to take it to over 11 weeks because i'm still not 50% amber.

    Yeah me and the hydro guy talked about res changes and he told me to just pH to 6.5 then add and pH should be 6-6.2 because my girl was drinking like two gallons in a day and a half. the Lucas formula is used in the same ratios as veg and flower right. Can you use kook bloom in flower?

    i haven't had to adjust any ph with 8ml micro and 16ml bloom. my tap is about 200ppm with 8.2ph, and when i mix my lucas it comes out to like 1200ppm and i really wish i wrote it down but i THINK 5.9ph i really can't find it in my notes, but i know i wrote it down one time. anyways i never needed to add ph up or down thank god. and yeah, lucas is used from veg thru flower, the same strength.

    clones put into 1200ppm do fine. however, make sure you are in HID lights. my mother plants under floro only need lucas ratio of 5ml micro to 10ml bloom. i tried full strength and it was too much nutrients and not enough photosynthesis to work with them, which caused burns.

    lucas formula is just a ratio of twice as many bloom nutes as micro, and no grow. i am going to try 4ml/8ml strength some time and see how they do, because if they come out just s good, i can save half the $$ on nutes.

    i read in my journal that after their first initial 3 gal setup, once they drank down to one gallon, the ppm's ranged from 1700 to 2500 depending on the strain. at this time, i should have added plain water and checked ppm, but last round i kept adding 1200ppm 8ml/16ml water. all turned out great, no leave burns, plants all came out dank, dispensary quality especially with 2-3 week flush.

    i choose hydro over soil any day simply for the perfect flush conditions. that in my opinion is a game breaker. i've had horrible soil tasting harvest before and alot of dispensaries sell terrible bud because flushing in soil is not that easy. its a pain in the ass if your grow room doesnt have cement floors and drains and your pots are over 5 gallons. never again will i drag 6 five gallon buckets to my bathroom, to fill up a gallon jug 90 times. hahaha fuck that. throw them in DWC and they flush perfectly. soil has too many variables, be it the manufacturer or the grower and how they water/flush.

    i dont know what kook bloom is. i just know of floramicro and florabloom for lucas, however i know you can use other stuff, as long as its micro and bloom. i would google to see what people have used.

    i found the numbers with Lucas. my tap water is 8.1-8.2ph with 160-200ppm.

    with 8ml micro and 16ml bloom, that makes the water 1109ppm and 5.6ph.

    the ppm's vary slightly due to city water fluctuations. lucas is around 1200 and 5.6ph, a significant drop from 8.2ph. no monitoring of ph was another positive of hydro vs soil. with soil and fox farm nutes holy shit i was ph downing in veg and upping in flower like a mofo. i remember with a full dose of fox farms tiger bloom i needed like 3tsp of PH up per gallon. it was ridiculous because the ph down was so much stronger, where about 10 drops would make a gallon where it needs to be.

    I feel like the ph down and up do more harm then good.

    I used to fall for the myths and fairy tales told by veteran growers, and then I got smart :D.

    You are absolutely right. Once too much is added its fucked up makes everything out of whack. The thing is to find out your sweet spot with your nutes. Once you do that its easy from there as you know how much of this and that will make ph go up or down. I can't wait t run my hydro system again
