Adambritsch Hey man nice plants! I’m a super rookie and have an ebb and flow setup, is there A big difference between the two as far as time or yield is concerned? If you have an article or YouTube video you can reference me too, that would be legit also.

PotBot Grow weed easy.com great source of information I’m a nube too lol had to cut them down found a great big hippie grenade. They hermied on me seeded weed at the dispensary I know the name but shitty genetics. Gonna buy seeds next run.

Adambritsch Right on thanks for the tip. I found a seed in my durbin from the dispensary and pretty much hit the ground running. Do you know where your seeds are coming from for your next run? I’ve heard a lot of good things about seedsman.com. In the US at least.

Electrcx Looking good man. 👍🏻

PotBot Thanks man it’s been a struggle but now I know what to expect next run.

Beachboi Yeah man, I hear yeah. This strain is picky as shit. Even though they say it’s an easy grow anyone is could do it. I’ve been growing 12 years and this one is almost hands in the air lol

Well all the stress I put the girls through finally caught up to me, the outer two had some pollen sacks and nanners the wife plucked what she found but gonna push through it at this point. I can’t lie though the seeds came from a black D.O.G plant that did hermie from stress so it may not be my fault I guess.

Update on the stem rot issue I had. The addition of H2O2 worked like a charm rubbed a little on the stock as well as adding some to the res for 2 days and done. The photos are not in order but I’m sure you can figure it out the blurry pic is the only pic I took the next day sorry.

Scuba Yea they supposed to every 90 days or so

Day: 42

My ph in my res after I change it goes up up up within hours I mixed everything 2 days before hand and checked ph stayed at 6.2 put it in the plants and 2 hours later 6.6 brought it back down 5.9 and hasn’t moved so I realized that just after I change the nutrient water that I’m going to have to keep an eye on the ph.

PotBot The one in the last photo got some ph stress my bad changed res and ph was 5.8 the next day it was above 7

PotBot Adding another pic so the one with ph damage is not the last one. I haven’t been taking any pictures of the one I put in dwc that was in soil because I was pretty sure it wasn’t gonna make it been trimming the dead leaves off the bottom of the plant for the last few days it was still lifeless almost pulled it up gave it a pep talk yesterday and it started to perk up today didn’t want to get too excited because I still might end up killing it by accident but here it is.

PotBot Well scratch that it wouldn’t let me add another photo so I will include it in tomorrow’s update :(

Changed the water in the res ph 5.6 to 5.8 ppm just under 700 bumped it up.

April15Hater Hey! Doing my first grow and I'm running the same led light and and dwc. My growth looks pretty similar so it's a good reassurance, but I'm getting some color issues on the leaves. Question, does the 700 ppm of nutes include the minerals in the starting water? If so what is the starting ppm of your water? My tap is 50 and 24days out I'm running 550 total.

PotBot My tap water is 200 so I use the hard water micro. Flora trio

April15Hater Ok, so I'm at about the same place then... FWIW, amazon has disposable water filters for rv's that might soften yours up for like 25 bucks. I use it for this and home brewing beer and they work great.

PotBot I forgot to mention that these are being grown under 2 king 1000w LED lights that are equivalent to a 400w HID so I’ve read they are pretty cheap 112 bucks hope they last 3 year warranty hope I don’t need to use it plan on getting 2 more..

Just changed all the water in buckets, the accidental addition of extra micro just caught up with me noticed the very tips of two of my plants started turning brown I can only assume it's nutrient burn I will be keeping an eye on them now they have the correct amount of all three.

Hydronimous Do you have the area contained or is the humidifier discharging into a larger room?

PotBot The room is 8'x12' I have them at the back wall and the humidifier is in the center of the room. I have a small wall that is 4'x5' with mylar for reflective purposes.

Hydronimous Oh yea unless you got a decent size humidifier it ain’t gonna put a dent on the humidity and if you do it will be next to impossible to keep stable you need to have it sealed somehow if you want the humidity to build.

All is well I guess the pH is around 5.8 in all three buckets and the ppm is hovering around 400 it's been a battle to get the humidity up I purchased a humidifier now humidity is 40% should be a little higher just can't get it there.
