    Day 9 of the grow

    IMG_1861.JPG

    Temps in the low 70's, ppm 450, PH 5.8

    Roots have made an appearance at the bottom of the pot so will hopefully be able to remove the top feed tube soon and get rid of the water pump.

    15" at the moment, no signs of light burn or heat stress. It could be a different story when the second light goes in.

    Is it your first time topping this early? Your plant looks healty nice job there. I was going to wait until 3rd node and then top but maybe I will do it early if yours turns out good.

    I might have topped early but I do have 2 sets of growth nodes coming through, I figured it's worth the risk with such rapid veg growth with DWC setups

    A shot of the roots - the fat one on the right is about 12" past the bottom of the pot already

    Ph is creeping up so I’m doing a res change today, going up the ppm to 650, see how she handles it

    Day 12

    I think .5 grams/watt is attainable. I've done a couple grows in soil with similar lights and was almost there. Doing my first DWC grow right now with those same lights, but it's a lower yielding strain so it's looking like a similar yield. I'll know for sure in about 2-3 weeks. :bigjoint:

    This is under a 300w vipar, week 5 of 10 in flower. I'm hoping for the .5 as well but it let's you get a look at what the light can do in novice hands I'm happy with it considering how much they get hated on haha 20180220_125321.jpg

    Doing a little maintenance so thought I would take a look at the roots, apart from stains from the hydroton everything is looking good.

    Some interesting growth where I topped the plant, hopefully I've set up for 4 nice clean cola's. Plant is looking extremely healthy so far, really couldn't be happier with the move to hydro.

    Topped up the water, ph sitting at 5.8, PPM 450

    Excellent growth over the last 18 hours

    Can't wait to see how she takes the second LED

    Day 15 of White Widow

    Will be adding the second light tomorrow, excellent growth from the topping sites. If I wasn't under time restraints I would top again at all 4 sites but I don't want to lose another week of veg time.

    Will just be topping the top 2 sites and will flip once the new growth kicks in later in the week.

    Day 16

    Now have ~270w of blurple being pulled from the wall in a 2 x 2 tent giving me 65+w/sq ft

    Also see the 3 topping sites, I never thought I would be topping twice in the first 15 days of a grow!

    Will do a res change today - bring it up to around 700 ppm and keep it at 5.5-6 PH

    Will flip by day 21

    PPM settled on 810 and PH of 5.9

    The plant is also about 6" closer to the lights after moving to a 5gal res from a 2gal, still no signs of having to back away so all good!
