    So had these freebies and started them up prob a month ago except 2 that are ~2 weeks.

    I have done a few grows so far. Did well at first but never great. Plan to practice and take more care this grow as have GTH#1 next and want to do it right.

    Slow start but doing good now.

    Started in MG seed starter that was crap. Now in FFHF with FFOF at bottom ~2in. Using cob led setup i made. One in pic is veg setup. Flower setup is larger.

    Hard well water at the moment and using Jack's 20/10/20 very lightly.

    Was about to top but stem is so thick idk.

    3-5 pic is suposedly amnesia 8 and 6 thru 8 is sugar something...

    So top or just bend and maybe top later...? Stem looks too fat for clone so could top and toss it...

    Had cloner ready to try out be never used, only done clonex in jiffy pots or seed starter. Dont really care if coles succeeded but if topping going to use cloer for practice.

    Please post, as any help is appreciated.

    All seem to look ok. I topped every plant. A few leaves on one of the younger plants has spotting. A couple weird leaves a few of the others. Will prob bend a few some more and water the light ones. Most still feel heavy...dont wanter over water as feel i may have even thou its been days.

    BL multi tester came but idk how to use. Will just do light dose of jacks in the ones that feel light and need water.

    Made hempy buckets and transplanted everything. All have chunky perlite in bottom about half inch past hole. 7/16 hole at about a gallon which is ckiser to 3in though i know every howto says 2in from bottom but i went off video that showed to drill at 1 gallon. We will see if this is too high.
    8 I did in Canna Terra last night before i relized it was not coco.
    Last 5 i did today in Canna Coco. All are perlite mix half way up and then pure terra or coco the rest of the way which is basically surrounding gallon transplant which is soil.
    All filled with water to runoff, some flushed more than others.
    Tap watered the ones in terra and light nute PHed to 5.8 watered the ones in th coco. 1/4 teaspoon jacks citrus in 1 gallon for all 5 as will be a while before roots reach bottom.

    BL tester arrived and seems i may need to filter water or RO or something as EC 0.5 or 300ppm on 500 scale. PH is 6.9 so need to ph all water from now on to reduce to 5.8-6.0.

    I will also have to figure out how to deal with runoff but for now things look good.

    Upgraded veg light:
    http://www.rollitup.org/t/vero-cree-cob-custom-setup.932656

    Got $2 drain buckets which were needed as it takes a while for runoff so its hard to know how much to add. Watered all 13 with 7 gallons of diluted well water to 100ppm (which is less than 1/4 well water) and then 3 grams jacks and PHed to 5.8/6.0.

    Need to do some more training before moving to flower but ran out of time.

    Seems like roots hit hempy bottom so things should grow fast now.

    These wont die but wont grow roots. Maybe i was supposed to add root hormone? Or i should? At least prob change out water...idk.

    Ye bro rooting gel would be a help I've waited 14 days in a aero cloner before I've even seen them whitening up so don't give up maybe spray with some clonex spray or somethink similar
    Looking good tho bro
    Peace
    Ahh ye you can add stuff to the res like rhizotonic ect

    Ya there is nothing going on here. Water is not scummy but does smell. Just dumped it and really stunk.
    Will pull them all, run some bleach water thru it then drain, rinse and add new water.
    Stems are clearly rotting so assume should recut them. This time use clonex i guess.
    Do not need these clones but will want next round to work.

    Tied all down better. Not enough room in here for 13. Next time will be 6 to 8 so not so tight in here.
    2nd pic is just vero10s and 3rd us both 10s and 29s...not like it looks much different.

    Running out of room. Watering is taking way too much time. I need to figure out how to do it faster.

    So I finished modifying flower light and moved things in. I had strung a scrog net but it was not going to work this time so I cut it out. Hopefully I can set the new batch up to where it will be easy to transfer into flower room with scrog.

    [​IMG]

    I added a climate controller for the hyperfan so it only spins fast when the temps go up. Has been working well. Reads 84 now for some reason when should be 72. I believe I need to more temp probe again so lights done hit it. I also need to change prefilter as fan full speed seems slow.

    It is still very tight in here and can see things have gotten bigger below. Next time will only be doing 8 and will only be 6-8 from now on. It is a PITA to water.

    Been doing a mix of RO and tap but think my bluelabs meter is giving wrong nute reading so may need to add calmag or up tap water ratio. Doing 3g/gal jack citrus with just a few burnt tips so things look good to me but take a look and let me know what you think.

    Next batch of six GHT#1 and two Bubba kush coming along. Bottom of buckets painted on these hempy buckets so no light penetration to roots zone.

    Some more pics.
    Watering takes hours.

    Trimmed again. Late I know but better now then never.

    Repalaced prefilter.

    Set timer from 12/12 to 12.5/11.5. Will reduce 30min per week from now on.

    Next thing to do is setup an easier way to water.

    Made a reservoir to water from. Two 27g bins. RO and tap water lines running to them and a hose to room so should speed things up.

    Starting to look like a flower room.
    I have done more trimming down low then ever before. Dont want to deal with the popcorn anymore.
    Wonder if i should start trimming huge fans up top. Will prob wait but with how tight things are seems it will help.

    Plants in veg are struggling. Have not watered in over a week and buckets still waterlogged. I clearly over-watered in that i should not have filled bucket initially. Didn't have issue before but those transplants were bigger. I drained bucket a few weeks ago and have only given a tiny bit of water the other week just to feed. But they are just not taking in any significant amount of water at this point and will prob die if i cant fix.

    Cranking heat, all lights on (I only had vero 10s running), will prob switch to 24/0 for heat, blowing air with a box fan, running dehumidifier nonstop now and trying to wick out with paper towels (will add more paper towels to rest, stuck down as far as i can).

    Hopefully i can dry the coco out and water again slowly to get the roots to grow. I also know I dont want to draw so much moisture out of the air to where I am pulling out of leaves. Maybe I can rig some domes above the plants to help prevent that...IDK.

    I did just top other night and can tell they are growing so crossing my fingers things will work out.
