    The leaf texture "speed bumps" is just from watering, in your case your hydro so its to be expected. Just watch your PPMs as it can morph your plant. Ive seen elephant ear size fan leafs and stems the size and texture of celery lol. Looking good !

    Thanks for the input! It is always welcome, especially since this is my first time running hydro. The pH and nutrient issues I had earlier in the grow seem to have settled down and her new growth is beautiful. I think at this point I just need to keep an eye on how she is feeding..

    Thinking about letting this journal die. Haven't been updating much and not sure if there is any interest in it or not. I'll throw up another pic update and see if I feel like pursuing it after that. She's coming up on 3 weeks into flower. She is taking up pretty much the entire 3x3 tent she is in. Seems to have stopped getting taller finally at just under 3 ft tall.

    She is probably another few weeks from harvest. Having a few minor deficiency issues, but overall she is healthy and we'll on her way to the finish line.

    Looks more like a bit of nute burn than a deficiency to me Nano. This late in flowering you should cut out anything with N in it and keep the P low as well. With those dark green leaves with burning tips and edges there sure looks to be burning going on.

    Does look like you're going to get a nice harvest. :clap:

    :peace:

    Thanks for the feedback! I have actually completely stopped giving her any N at all. the leaves look way darker green than they actually are because they are damn near purple... I think it's genetic, another grower I talked to had the leaves on their papaya go super purple about half way through flower which is exactly what mine did. that being said, they probably are still a little N abundant. but the colas are monsters, the trichomes are plentiful and the aroma is heaven. I can't wait to chop her!

    Well, for the couple people that followed this I apologize for the lack of updates. Yesterday was chop day and she produced like a champ. Based on wet weight and bud density I'm guessing I'll be looking at about 7 ounces dry of the good stuff (colas and well developed side branches) and another 3 ounces of larf and trim (for extraction). Not bad for a single plant and my first go at hydroponics. Here are a couple quick pics I snapped while trimming. The cola pictured is actually the smallest if the 4 mains, but it was the first one i cut, so i tild her to say cheese... sorry for the flash pics on the last few, trimming took for freaking ever and it was dark by the time i got done, I'll put more pics up in a couple days when she's had a little dry time.

    Wow - nice grow there! How did you like the waterfarm? I had considered it but went with just the DWC bucket kit first and womdered how the waterfarm compared

    I prefer the recirculating aspect if the waterfarms over standard DWC. Better oxygenation of the root zone and I was able to get better results using less nutes. I'm am a noob at hydro though. I have 3 hydro grows under my belt but I started growing in soil over 20 years ago and I'm so much more comfortable with it.
