    Ideal age of genetic material going into flower?

    Yes, the age from germination whether original mother or clones of clones. I'm not sure if there's a proper term for it. If it's something you're skeptical of try keeping the same genetic material around for a long time and note the yields and bud quality. With various strains I've noticed that...

    Ideal age of genetic material going into flower?

    The maturity range seems reasonable. It's not every strain but a good number ime produce poor results when the genetic age going into flower is 10 weeks or less and then end up being an all time favorite when the genetic age going into flower is 12+ weeks.

    Ideal age of genetic material going into flower?

    Something I haven't seen talked about much, thought it would make a good thread. This is for photoperiod plants obviously.

    Ideal age for mothers?

    More specifically, what is the ideal age of the genetic material going into flower? How much difference does it make?

    Who REALLY Cures PRIMO?

    So, what is dank dank dank? It seems like the OP is expecting something different than rock hard nugs that are cured. Is it just the bare minimum of dryness to prevent mold? Or is there something more to it?

    Who REALLY Cures PRIMO?

    I hang dry (about a week) until outer crispiness starts. If it's particularly dry I'll pull a bag up over and let it hang like that for 24 hrs and then continue the open air hang dry. Once it's close to the right moisture I do the final trim and put in open trays. The trays will still allow for...

    Yellowing Leaves Early in Flower

    Yea, I haven't done as much soil as hydro but I did learn that a flush can make a huge difference. I did it mid flower for every plant but over time I learned to change the PH of the nutrient solution so I didn't need to flush. It's going to vary by soil brand, nutes, etc. but over time you can...

    Yellowing Leaves Early in Flower

    Every soil PH probe I've used was shit. I've never used straight coir so I can't comment on using it. Maybe someone else can comment on the pics, but they don't look that bad.

    Yellowing Leaves Early in Flower

    They don't look that bad. Runoff PH is 5.8?

    Yellowing Leaves Early in Flower

    When I have had leaf problems like that I can usually fix it with a heavy flush and re-water. I've plugged up the sink after the flush, over water and adjust PH directly in the runoff, cycle through the runoff and check again. Keep adjusting runoff until it's the same going out as coming in at...

    Does anyone use a dehumidifier during flower?

    It's a plant response to high humidity to make the buds airy so that more air exchange can occur. That's not great if you want tight nugs. Lower RH is useful for contamination prevention and also boosting transpiration which helps move nutrients in plants. Airflow is also important in the micro...

    Seedling not showing sex

    Yes looking for preflowers. I should have been more specific in the OP. Thank you, I'll keep it around and see what happens.

    Seedling not showing sex

    A plant from regular seeds. Two of them showed at about 4 weeks. Two weeks later the third plant still isn't showing. I usually use feminized seeds so I don't have a lot of experience with this.

    Seedling not showing sex

    I started three seeds. Two are female. Two weeks later the third plant isn't showing sex. Will something happen eventually or do some seeds never show sex?

    What PH should I keep my water at?

    Getting clones to root doesn't require nutrients. What function does PHing clone water serve?

    Seedling tent (Perpetual grow advice needed)

    I use clone kings too. Picked them out for cost and tray design. I've replaced one of the manifolds with PVC, also a bigger pump. It works fine with the included equipment but the PVC is a slight upgrade. Would have been better without the net cups but I cut the bottoms off and it gets the job...

    I absolutely cannot control humidity

    Thatt's right. The fan/filter need to be paired by airflow. What I've done in the past is oversize them and use a fan controller to dial it down to desired temps. Easy. It costs a little more but the filter will last longer and the fan is the least of the cost.

    how keep tent from collapsing from pressure

    Like some people suggest with wood slats and zip ties, I use aluminum angle. You can get it at big box hardware but if you have a metal supplier nearby it will be a lot cheaper. I don't remember what profile I used but whatever is smallest will work fine. It doesn't need a lot of strength. With...

    C02 Calculator ~ Calculate How Long to Run your CO2 Tank

    I started out using a manifold, mechanical controller and repeat cycle timer. Eventually I switched to digital and the tanks started lasting at least twice as long as before. It would have been good to know what the CO2 levels were with the mechanical setup, but for the price of a CO2 meter it...

    Seedling tent (Perpetual grow advice needed)

    I have two aeroponic cloners so I can get rooted clones pretty often. I start plants in 12/12 once a month roughly so always have more clones than I need, which is the point. But if you're constantly feeding new plants into a perpetual chamber (and growing from seed) start new plants at the same...
