02-06-2020 Lowered humidity to 45% and back on the 24 light cycle. I can’t keep the temps regulated in the garage while I’m at work so for the last few weeks it’s back to the 24.

02-02-2020 Today I fed with some bubbled tap water Ph’ed to 6.2 with 2 tbsp molasses. Im also gonna go to a 20 on/4 off light schedule. And until I can get them unlocked I will foliar feed every other day with a light foliar mix. Mephisto says 75-90 days for Mango Smile and Fantasmo Express is 65-75 days. MS is only a week ahead of FE so we will see how this ends. Oh! Jewelers loop came in today, and trichomes are still all clear so that’s a good sign. Hopefully I can get this train back on the tracks!!!

02-01-2020 So the discoloring and spots got a bit worse the other day, but since the feeding I think it’s calmed down a bit. I have a soil Ph test kit coming in today and will test the soil as soon as it gets here. Buds are really starting to stack up!

01-28-2020 Yesterday I showed some leaves to a fellow grower and he said from the looks of it, they’re starving. He said the supersoil has about 4-5 weeks of nutrients without any amendments. So maybe that is the case. Tonight I fed 1/2 strength nutes, 1ml Grow (2-1-6), 3.75ml of bloom (0-5-4), and 2.25ml of cal-mag. Ph’ed bubbled water to 6.2 and 710ppm. They should have about 3 1/2-4 weeks left. Hopefully we can still finish strong.

01-27-2020 I think I’m going to start feeding the girls nutes next feeding, pretty sure supersoil nutrients are depleted.

Day: 44

01-26-2010 So the brown spots have continued...even after 2 feedings with Cal-Mag. I’ve racked my dang brain on the internet and know it is a deficiency in calcium, but why?! Today I watered each plant in a clean tote with bubbled water Ph’ed to 7.0/240ppm. The runoff varied from 6.1-6.4 Ph and 500-730ppm. I’m starting to think my soil is acidic as causing a lockout ie deficiency and start watering with 7.0-7.3 or so and see if I can raise the Ph in the soil so the roots can take up the nutrients. I know there’s still life in my supersoil by the runoff ppm(500-730). Fingers crossed!

Day: 42

01-25-2020 Watered last night with bubbled tap water at 6.6 Ph and 3ml of Cal-Mag. This mornin I clipped off all those spotting leaves and crossing fingers that no more appear.

01-22-2020 Watered the Mangos and FE2 last night. FE1 just doesn’t drink as much. Maybe cause she was topped...🤷🏼‍♂️. Notices some brown spots forming on the Mangos. Think I need to start adding Cal-Mag to the feeding regiment. Besides that, they’re still lovin life.

01-19-2020 Today we are recovering from from a heavy leaf strip on the Mangos and a lighter one on the Famtasmos. Fed all the ladies with bubbled tap Ph’ed to 6.6. Also I was noticing the the plants drooped every time I watered. The next day, dun..dudda...duuuun!! Come to find out I’ve been watering with way too cold of water. Now I have made sure water was room temp and no more droop. Also nute burn is lookin way better. I’m sticking to plain water with Recharge every other feeing till I see deficiencies. Also added a little CO2 booster with yeast and sugar, one bubble per second. I need a monitor. Let’s see what happens... Temps in the tent have been 75-80 and Rh is 48-55%

Day: 33

01-15-2020 They’re still showing some nute burn from the compost tea but I think we’re recovering. There is no more major curl on the newest growth. Still lookin fantastico! I have to leave for 2 days and hoping wifey shows them as much love as I do. lol I watered this mornin with bubbled tap water with Recharge Ph’ed to 6.6. Mangos got 1/2 gal each and Fantasmo got 3/4 of that each.

Day: 32

01-14-2020 Fed the Mangos last night. Bubbled tap water, 1.25ml cal-mag and 5ml of bloom, Ph’ed to 6.6. They split a 1/2 gal between them and will have to water them again tomorrow with the Fantasmo. Today on cruise control. The MS1 has what looks to be 10-12 main cola sites and MS2 ain’t far behind her sister. Super stoked!!! Third pic down is my topped FE1. As far as height, it’s really not far behind FE2.

10-12-2020 Mango is started stretching and showing those beautiful bud sites. Tied back FE1 and she looks pretty good. Trying to fill in the bare spots in the pot with FE2. Temps held steady at 76 and Rh is 50-55%.

Day: 28

**Day 29** 01-11-2020 Last night did some more defoliating on the Mangos and fed them a 1/2 gal each of rain water with 1.25ml of cal-mag, 2.5ml of bloom nutes, and 1/4 tsp of ReCharge. Didn’t have to Ph, it was 6.6 after adding all nutes. Fantasmo got 1/2 gal shared at 1/2 the strength the Mango got. More training on FE2 and more tucking on FE1. Temps 73-79 and Rh 50%

Day: 27

The little ladies are lookin awesome! Readjusted the pipe cleaners on the Mango Smile and FE2 over so the lower growth can get some light. Did some leaf tucking on the recently topped FE1. Temps between 72-78 and Rh is 50-60%.

Day: 26

Got a wild hair up my ass last night and topped FE1. Let’s see what happens. Mango Smile’s new growth is looking a little better today. (I think) Hopefully they weren’t stunted too bad.

Day: 25

01-07-2020 I think the Mango Smiles are Nitrogen burnt, got some “eagle claws” and yellowing on the new growth. I guess the compost tea was a bit much being in the hot supersoil. So I just watered them with some bubbled water Ph’ed to 6.6. Other than that, the ladies are still rockin on. Fantasmo Express is just gettin it! (Day 18 for them) Temps 74-78 and Rh is 50-60%

Day: 24

01-06-2020 Not 100% sure, but I think the Mangos are starting to stretch. Fed the FE both just bubbled tap water Ph’ed to 6.6. Metered the bit of runoff and it was at 6.4 so I think the soil is got a good Ph. Prolly gonna have to feed the MS tomorrow. Thinking about adding bloom nutes in but not sure, I just ran some compost tea 5 days ago. Things are lookin good though. Temps 73-77 and Rh 50-60%.

01-01-2020 The ladies were not phased by the LST one bit. They loved it! Smaller under branches are now becoming “main” tops. 1st true leaf on FE1 is curling up but new growth looks great. MS1s top is already curled up straight again. Don’t think I’m going to switch light cycle at all. Stayin 24hr and Rh is between 45-50% depending on if fans are kicked in. Fed the day before last so just focusing on leaf tucking. Overall going fan-freakin-tastic!
