ITS A BOY 😢 GAME OVER… TILL THE NEXT ONE!

Day: 63

🚨 ****she is in ICU right now!! I think I had all sorts of problems come all at once…. My ppm was too high (thought this one could handle it), VPD was way too high, RH was too low (according to the VPD chart), temps during lights off was too low (switched to 24/0 lighting to stabilize temps) I’m going to give this 2 more weeks to recover. If she looks worse than today I’ll stop this diary. Next up will be a GDP Auto. I had great success w that strain!😎

Day: 59

934 PPM 5.69 PH 71*F WATER TEMPERATURE Did my last major defoliation until she starts flowering. Realized my VPD was too high. Lowered it by upping the humidity and slightly lowering my ambient temps to around 70-75*F with humidity around 60%. I’ll give her a bout 7-10 days to recover. Waiting until day 80 before I switch the lighting to a 12/12. Just in case she doesn’t express her auto flower genes.

PPFD: 590 PH: 5.60 Humidity: 53.4% (weekly average) PPM: 1000 DLI: 41.9 Avg. Temp: 74.6*F/23.6*C I’ve been trying to figure out what was going on with her over the last week or so. Finally did another res change and saw the issue… I dropped my hygrometer in my res (don’t know when). This caused all my problems 🤦🏿‍♂️ and probably a reason I haven’t started flowering yet.. Hopefully all my issues are gone. We’ll see in the next coming days 🤞🏿

Since I now know this baby is going to take a longer time until harvest. Unlike most autos. I have started “playing” with her to try and achieve a 1lb harvest. I have topped a couple shoots. Main goal before flowering is to achieve a 3’ width. Right now I’m at 18”. Ppm was lowered to 946 as I was still seeing a little nute burn. She’s going through a lot right now so the next week I’m going to leave her be. I’ll check values every other day (ec/ppm/ph/humidity/temps)

Ph:5.62 PPM: 1010 Had to do a 1/2 res change. Ppm was too high. Causing some leaf burn. Emptied 1/2 res (4L) and replaced with a lighter nutrient solution to bring ppm back to 1000 Did some heavy ish defoliation. Middle of canopy is open now. Will do one more slight defoliation a week after flowering I think.

PPFD: 670(top highest) 600 (lower area) PH: 5.64 Humidity: 54.7% (weekly average) PPM: 1290 DLI: 49.6 Avg. Temp: 73.6F/23.1C Look like I have a small nutrient deficiency with Nitrogen. Refilled 3/4 th gallon of (mixed) nutrient solution to main res. Used more GrowBig solution (10ml) to address nitrogen deficiency. Also added a 1/4tsp of MYCO+ to better aid Nitrogen as well. **Yes. I know the PPM is a bit high. I’m going to let it drink 🤷🏿‍♂️ will of course monitor for any nutrient burn. ***Will refill next top up with 1/4 strength nutrients unless flowering starts. 🤞🏿

Topped up water today. Used 1/3 strength nutrients (fox farm trio + cal mag plus) PH:5.50 (topped up water) PH: 5.56 (main water) after using ph down. Was at 5.87 before ph drops. PPM: 1100 New light on its way in a couple days! ☀️

Ppm 1100: Ph: 5.56 Water Res. Change today. Added new mix of nutes. (7ml/g Big Bloom: 5ml/g Grow Big Hydro: 5ml/g Tiger Bloom: 3ml/g CalMag: 3/4 tsp Myco+) Used LST clip to bend main branch to expose more light to bottom bud sites. Trying to even the canopy. This strain has tight spacing between the nodes, making LST a bit difficult. Also cut a bigger fan leaf to allow more light through. ***just realized I put too much TigerBloom. I should’ve went half strength. Oh well. I’ll continue to check her daily for signs of nute burn.*** Red LST Clips= Main stem Clear LST Clips= Fan leaves White LST Clips = Side branches

Jay-Root Is this grown in coco?

SmokeMyOwn No. It’s a hydroponic system. I did use potting soil in a net cup as a starter. You can see it in the beginning of the grow.

Jay-Root

Jay-Root I’d recommend upping your ph, aim for around 5.8-6.2. Too low may cause nutrient uptake issues
