White Widow Auto Flower Hydro Grow

Spring 2019

White Widow Auto Flower started in a rapid rooter from seed. Once main tap root became big enough it got transferred to hydroponic system. Currently under a small 50 watt led until basement warms up enough to move unit to tent. Tent has two 600 watt leds.

I did another bucket change of water on June 4th with a 2 part veg and bloom. The plant is flowering in full effect. I have to keep a better eye on the water level as this is drinking a lot of water and I got distracted by work and the water supply was bone dry from the plant consuming it.

Did another bucket change. Plant was thirsty as only roughly 1 gallon of water was left in bucket. Once emptied I refilled with approximately 3.5 gallons of water with approximately 5ml of base Vegetable nutrients and 5ml of bloom nutrients per gallon of water. Plant is starting to flower. I switched this plant to be primarily under the HiGrow LED as it physically seems to be throwing more intense light then that of the Phillizon (both are 600 watts as well) but Again HiGrow is clearly better.

Plant is growing nicely and the nutrient issue mentioned in my last post appears to be resolved. As a lesson learned with my well water it is best to use less nutrients then what the bottle says. Half strength appears to be key.

Day: 25

Performed a bucket change (i.e. changed water and added full strength nutrients.) I have under 2 X 600 Watts Led still. Temperatures are still a little low outside which is hurting my basement temperature. I will keep an eye on the PH for the next day or two especially after a water change.

thcguruv Had to dilute reservoir to roughly half and added some fresh water. The strength of the nutrients was to heavy. Half strength appears to work for my plant.

Day: 15

Plant is taking off fairly rapidly. It has been two weeks and could either use an extra Millilitre of nutrs or two added to the less then half strength that I have now. I need to take this out of the 50 watt full spectrum LED that it was hatched under and slowly start introducing it to a 600 watt multi spectrum light and will turn on additional light after a few days for a total of 1200 watts. I am going to hang the light higher than recommend as a weaning process. I use well water as an FYI and do not have a PPM meter. I am starting to think the well water is almos enough to do the job....I really need to get a PPM meter. Basement where tent is is still cold not certain if I should move down there yet. Side note not liking those clawed tips I believe that is an indication of needing something either more nutes or more light.

The plant is getting stronger and is growing a nice root structure.

Still looking healthy , had to do a minor PH adjustment down. Put a small fan on plant to strengthen stalk

Day: 5

Planted on April 15th. The plant is staring it 2nd node approx 3 inches from base of hydroton clay pebbles. I have a timer on light with an 18/6 on/off cycle. I have a timer on top drip feed to turn on for 10 minutes every 4 hours. I am using half strength nutrients for now. I need to get a small fan on plant start strengthening it. I also need to find some sort of plastic dome to retain humidity as humidity is low in house at 37%.

thcguruv I adjusted ph this morning as it crept up a bit high. I have that around 6 now. I got a small USB fan to strengthen stalk as well. I still need some sort of dome to keep in humidity.
