Fall 2023

4x4

4x4 With happy frog and FF Ocean Forest. Little peat and pumice. Didn’t test water drainage. Nutes plan is amendments (compost, cal mag, worm castings. I made 2 self watering bases, and have 3 BluMat classics. Ak and grape didn’t germinate. Added another AK to a cup of water 7pm. Will redo the grape tomorrow. (Grape sunk and didn’t germ, put it on paper towel so it don’t drown.)

Various. (Bubblegum, white widow, AK47, (photos). Double grape (auto)(F) ILGM and Mephisto.

Not a lot of change visible from last update. I really want to harvest, but trichs don’t seem to be changing. They are still drinking water. All three strains are over their typical cycle windows.

Trichs aren’t quite where I want them to be, but we’ve been in flower for 61 days. A couple more days to see if the trichs give me some Amber.

My tent has crashed. Any tips as we near the finish line? Trichs just going cloudy, so maybe 1-2 more weeks? No healthy fan leaves, and sugar leaves are starting to crisp too. Anything else to watch out for at this stage?

They got a bit yellow and crispy, likely because of my ph issue and nute lockout.

Update. Got the soil PH back down I think. Tested one at 6.5. I’m totally lost on the nute stage. Likely a lot in the soil from when they were fed, but too high PH to eat. I’m using a multi function probe to test water and nutrients, not sure how accurate it is, but better than nothing. I added some flower girl and mag to the top, and am trying to figure out if I should be feeding the elm dirt plant juice or the bloom juice at this stage. //Ph down h2o with lemon juice.

TrpX My comment was nuked. I didn’t mean to add the last four pics with the first two. Since they are here… I need some experts. Pic 3: phosphorous deficiency? Pic 4&5: To much/close to light? Pic 6: cal or mag deficiency?

Day: 43

Something was chomping on the leaves. Sprayed with insecticidal soap and neem is on the way. It looks like my auto is starting to flower. …Wife said the house smells, but I can’t smell it. It’s not going to get better though. I seriously can’t smell anything until I open the tent. Lung room smells clean to me.

Caliban

Caliban Look underneath the leaves for caterpillar. You could probably defoliate some of the redundant fan leaves too if you wanted.

TrpX

TrpX Right on. Remove the lower fan leaves then? Like a lollipopping defoliation at the lower quarter? I’ve plucked several that were yellowing from no light.

Caliban

Caliban You don’t have to be severe otherwise it will stunt growth. I remove 1-2 fans per day down below not getting light or above of blocking buds

TrpX I made two DIY bottom feeders, and they seem to be working. Roots on the Bubblegum are finding the wet wicks.

SaviiBuds

SaviiBuds Awesome! I have some DIY wick feeders too that look super similar to the ac infinity ones. They work pretty well. My nutrients are powder so I still top feed, but anytime they just get water it comes from their wick lines. If the roots are growing into the lines you can take them off of the wick lines like every other watering and it’ll help keep them from sticking down

TrpX

TrpX I just saw them attaching this time, and pulled them off. I’ll do that every so often. I figure I’ll still give a good water one a week to keep all of the soil moist, and I also too with worm castings. I have the Blu Mat carrots in three of the plants as well. They are the classic version, and really small. Doesn’t seem to be an issue covering all of my bases and doubling up. I ordered some elm dirt plant juice. They targeted me hard on the ads, and had a special. Anyone ever use that stuff?

Not sure why the Bubblegum has had so many leaf issues. Today some are curling up. And those spots. I do use cal mag as a foliar spray.

TrpX I’m going to use DR Earth FG when it’s time. Has anyone used Elm Dirt juice? I’m a sucker for organic miracle food, and want to try it.

Good wallpaper. My tips on the new growth are a tinge yellow. ?

TrpX Closest to heater, and highest in tent. New growth reacting to light I think.

Caliban

Caliban Sometimes that’s just the immature leaf. Normal to me

TrpX

TrpX Figured it will go away, and it’s just because new. Just watching them closely! Do you top (and how many times), and lollipop? It feels like there is a lot of potential under some of the fan leaves. I don’t want to start hacking away at it though. Also seems to be split camps about lollipopping and topping. More fruitful or not? Do I wait until closer to flower?

Family photo after 1 month. They are all the same age, aside from a few days for a redo of germination for the white widow (back right). What’s the problem with her? Genetics? I’m not expecting much fruit from that one.

Single is Double Grape auto. The other two are AK47 and Bubblegum photos. Should be getting hungry soon. Still not sure what the feeding plan is. Not doing synth. Trying to make healthy soil. I have Dr. Earth FG ready when they are. Wondering if I should add some cal mag, silica or Epsom to the next watering.?

Should I just pluck those bottom leaves off? They are getting dry and papery. Still not sure if that was caused by misting and sitting water after lights out. She doesn’t pray like the others. I’m concerned about her health and happiness. I have no idea what I’m doing. I’ve never really drenched the soil yet, just lighter sprays with the sprayer. No nutes or additives. Doing FFOF, HF and some peat and pumice.

Caliban

Caliban Looks like a C deficiency. I would remove them as they look damaged.

TrpX

TrpX Maybe my soil wasn’t mixed well enough and it hit a patch of peat? It was like 11 days old and in ocean forrest. Shouldn’t that provide enough nutes for a youngin? This happened after I misted a bit late or a bit much. Temps get down to 65 too.

Caliban

Caliban OF usually gives you about 3 weeks of nutrients. Check ph too. Could be that at one point you were to alkaline which may limit C access.

Best growth in order: Bubblegum photo (2 pics), AK47 photo, Double Grape auto, and last place goes to White Widow photo. …not sure it wants to be a plant. Absolutely minimal growth. (Around 5-6 days behind the others as the first didn’t germinate.) Whatever caused the spots on bubblegum seems better. Mainly misting them and watering the top soil lightly with a sprayer. Still not sure how much water to give, so I think I’m going lightly. Also have two plants on the homemade self watering base. (Too early to use, but the root system should expand quickly considering their growth.)

RO water seemed to have sat over night after lights off. From misting them. Does that sound like a reason for the discoloration? The stipples made me think bugs. ?

fozzybear99 Do the cups have drainage holes?

TrpX

TrpX Yeah. I mist them heavily about 5x a day. I might need to make sure the fan is hitting them too I think. There was a drop of water this am from the misting the night before.

zer0ping

zer0ping Just my opinion but when last year I stopped misting period unless it’s a clone etc. this new grow setup for 2023 will be the same because of this EXACT issue.

xuzen I’m sorry. Correct me if im wrong. Is this an auto? If so, 12/12 light schedule will greatly reduce yields

TroopaCabra Re germinating AK. Will redo grape tomorrow. Hard to keep humidity high enough, it’s at average 50%. Cloudforge T3. Seems filter is eating it. Not sure how to run a filter and keep humidity up.

TroopaCabra First timer, will take help and feedback. Good genetics would be a great start.
