Starting a winter grow. The usually long wait while the seeds pop and put down roots. Just moved them into my tent from fluorescent to LED at 60%. Cold cellar so heater going at 75f.

drdave1 Why do clip the leaves

Caliban

Caliban The theory is that less leaf surface reduces moisture loss while the roots are growing. Clones drying out is the biggest danger the first week or two.

Caliban

Caliban The second reason is that clipping the leaf tips prevents them growing and redirects energy to roots which is Job 1!

Added the trellis and positioned a second one higher up for late flower support. Raised the lights too. Flipping to flower very soon.

Last week of Veg. Watered this morning ph 6.4. Top dressed with Roots Organic Veg and Foundation Nutes. Basically fish bones and lots of other good stuff. The girls have pretty much only relied upon the soil and cal-Mg supplements. Very much. I’m going to trellis them this week too. Also the M1A1 is going to be a line tattoo. My first.

ZaddyXL What soil did you use? I did a mix of roots organic and fox farm ocean forest and was told I won’t need to feed for a long while, maybe till flower. But I see your plants have been showing deficiencies and hunger for specific nutes. Did you use a sterile soil?

Caliban

Caliban I use FFOF and some coast of Maine compost for the bottom layer. I transplant 3x and finish in a 7G. I start to top dress feed the last 2 weeks of Veg. Early veg they always get some Epsom salts and cal-Mg as needed. And sometimes kelp. The soil typically depletes on 3-4 weeks depending on size of plant. I try not to mix soil brand. FFOF is ph regulated to 6.8 which is perfect. My C deficiency likely came from a me not adding cal Mg in time.

Caliban

Caliban I feed 1/week roots organic food. FOx Farm soil.

organic_grower Moving along nice Cali!

Caliban

Caliban Always the big milestone. Now the girls can spread for 2-3 weeks before flower.

Day: 35

Watered after 2 days. Plants doing very well and growing about 1” a day on average. Roots starting to appear at drainage hole’s which means transplant time this week. I have to pick up some more FF OF and coast of Maine lobster compost and prep my pots. Otherwise a routine Veg day. Oh and some lobster roles with local caught lobster!

Olenonok Hey mate! will you use ventilation?

Caliban

Caliban I do. AC Infinity in-line fan and 2 8” fans out of picture.

Caliban

Caliban I posted 2 older pics showing the fan outside the tent. My last run the plants almost touched the lights so had to re rig the tent.
