    Also looks like I got a case of root rot. Mildly.

    Water is 72F. Perhaps that's why plants been looking like poop.

    There are a bunch of new roots so whatever caused it is gone.

    I may keep the 12 gal totes so I can use the same chiller when I'm running 12 sites. 12 sites with 27 gal totes is like 200 gal. Chiller is rated 400 gal but thata with a Delta t more for aquariums. Where they cool the water to mid 70s.

    Oh and fuck rockwool. So sick of that shit. Gonna buy a tote later and make a 36 site tote cloner and use that for seeds. My bucket cloner is only 8 sites so I couldn't start the seeds that way as I started a bunch to find new strains.

    It's like 10 days since sprout and they look like day 3 in the cloner.

    At least I used the last of my rockwool starter cubes so I got less shit I don't use.

    Growing strong at 1.4EC at change 2 weeks ago. Now at 1.25EC. should be done stretching in a week. Probably day 20 or so from flip. Didn't keep track. Just put the next generation in bubble buckets last night. Still got a couple stragglers in the cloner. This grow looked so bad 2 weeks ago after I trimmed and tied down some branching. Now it looks great. Going to taper N on this batch and see if it helps.

    The product I cut 3 weeks ago and been curing for 2 weeks smells way better than shit cut a month ago and curing for 3 weeks. Seems like getting it in the jars when still a little moist and slowly bringing it down worked out better.

    For the most part. Unless it's sitting on a bud I'll move it out of the way. Sometime remove. It's amazing the growth in DWC/rdwc. That's an 7x7 room I'm pressed up into the corner.

    My veg area. Coco still looks like dookie. Was told I was overferting at 1.4EC so I kicked back to 0.8-1.0EC and they look like shit. Leaves yellowing and falling off. Think Coco def needs more than dwc. DWC looks better at 0.8EC. On the Flood and Drain I left them in rockwool way too long. The roots formed a nice mat and was a pita pulling them apart

    So I tied up the branches with twist ties that I got in a roll you cut to size. I think it's too abrasive for the plant though. Where I tied off near budsites the small sugar leaves appear dead only where I tied off and the stem is scrapped up. My guess is the ties scrapped and broke the tiny sugar leaves.

    I didn't want to keep them on their so I probably cut about an oz of buds that looked like that. My worry was the dead parts would mold and spread.

    Anyone ever experience that?

    I don't think it's bud rot. I couldn't find anything that resembled mold. It was almost like the sugar leaf tips got burnt and wilted.

    I recommend at least 2 plants per 27 gallon but ideally 3-4. You'll get burned by a runt or two and lose a lot of production in a tote that way. Going with at least 3 per bucket you're going to hit your number no matter what. That's my experience at least.

    I used to do clones in DWC also but I liked the mixed bag of phenotypes seeds gives. 3 per bucket is a great strategy to get enough monsters out of seed pot luck. If you already have a great performing clone , that rocks too.
