Soil and Flower Tab Test

Hello everyone, I thought i would share what has been going on with my little soil and flower tab test. She is in a mix of ffof, fflw, and extra perlite. I started her Way to early and have been trying to slow her down as much as possible. I have been keeping her under 3 18" tube floros to help keep her small.

About 3 weeks in i lst'd her, and a couple weeks later I topped the 8 tallest tips to even out the canopy and keep it below the light. Right now she is 49 days old, and just started to show about 2-3 little brown spots on one of the lower leaves.

I figure its just starting to run out of nutes since the soil tab is only supposed to last 6 weeks. So I plan on adding the dust and really small chunks out of the tab bag to her next watering. Hopfully that will hold her off 2 weeks until I get my new tent and light in two weeks. Then its off to flowering lol.

Please feel free to comment or ask any questions
Finally some pics (sorry there not the greatest)

I found My good camera and attempted to take some better pics. Still havnt figured this camera out 100% yet but i'm working on it. I noticed the tips are slightly lighter green withing the last couple days, another sign im running out of nutes. I plan on watering her today with the powder mixed in the water to see if she gets better.

Here they are:

Hey Everyone. This week i added the soil tab powder out of the bottom of there bags in the water, and the plant took off lol. I had to raise the light and supercrop a couple tips that were starting to outgrow the rest of the canopy.

5 days ago I thought i found a beetle borer hole at the base of one of the branches, so I cut it off and disected it. Luckily there wasnt anything in it. I didnt want to waste the cutting so I decided to do a lil experiment. It went into stait coco, with no hormone or anything on it. I'm curious to see if it will make it.Shes lookin pretty healthy at 5 days old so heres some pics of mom and baby:

I dont have it yet, hopefully one more week. I'm getting the Secret Jardin dr120t. It has a veg and flower room basically in one tent, you can take them apart too.
That tent looks nice dude, great choice! Looking forward to seeing some pics ;)

Hey everyone,

Nothin much happened this week but shes still growin like a weed lol. Shes 64 days old now and is definetly running out of nitrogen, I have ordered all of my supplies and the tent so hopefully thell be here within a week. Then i can throw it into flower and start the next batch!!!:) The clone is now 12 days old and lookin healthier then ever, im pretty confident that shes rooting, even though i cant see any roots yet. I always wondered if it would work without rooting hormone or not. Lol enouph talk heres some pics:

Hey guys, sorry it took so long to update, I've had a ruff couple of weeks. I finally got all my new toys and figured id share some pics! Shes still having nitrogen problems and I put the flower tab in the day after the last update. The clone rooted well after 3 weeks so i transplanted and accidentily burned her a little.

A few days ago a friend gave me a couple of his plants because he is moving. A snow white, and a bubblelicious. So I took three clones of of each, gave them each a flower tab, and threw them into flowering. They are on day 2 of flower:

I also took 6 clones of the original plant, here is all twelve:

I germinated 8 of my seeds. Two each of Snow white, Bubblelicious, Aurora indica, and Raspberry Couph. 2 sprouted within 2 days and the rest were up within 5 days :

She is looks real good, exept that it looks like the flower tab can't keep up with her. Her bottom leaves are yellowing and the upper leaves are also showing some kind of nute stress. While the soil tabs proved better then I had anticipated, the flower tabs look like there lacking. Guess well find out though. Here are some pics:

I have always started from seeds so cloning is slightly new to me. These nirvana seedlings are prolly the healthiest little girls Ive had the pleasure of working with so far. Arnt they beautiful lol (from left to right- Snow White, Aurora Indica, Bubblelicious, and Raspberry Cough):
