GrNadeGrade Looking 👍🏾. Most of them look ☁️. But like you said, it’s more difficult to 🆔 until you upgrade

dinin

dinin Very nice and might I add the description of this grow is A+ 😏

Creepall

Creepall It does look nice but I messed up the fert and we both know it! Hahaha and ofc I upgraded my description content, based on the best only!

Watermelon 1 and 2 are still going nicely, the flushing worked and no leaves are yellowing anymore, I watered with clear water today. The Ak47 was definitely begging for its life to end and wouldn't grow bigger buds anyway so chop chop she goes! I'm still happy the worst burn of the three went okay and survived (73 days total for the ak)

Shower time for the babies, I really need to flush them even more than just giving my regular amounts of water but with no fert, so in the shower they go! Watermelon 1 started showing dried overfed leaves too and I didn't like it so yeah here we are

ig:@eaegifts

ig:@eaegifts I do this often as part of my pre harvest cleanup but just a tip you’ll want to run a strong fan to dry it out after so mold doesn’t grow

Creepall

Creepall Okay thanks, but with the aerated medium I have and fiber pots I'm not too concerned about it?

ig:@eaegifts

ig:@eaegifts Oh ok I thought you was wetting the buds themselves, I shower the whole plant and thought you meant the same lol

Again, a bit late but I cut this girl's lowest and super small branches that would have ended in mini buds while pumping the plant's energy, this watermelon auto is taking her time so I think today was the last moment for me to do it... Next time I'll think about doing this earlier!

SnowDog_X1 I’ve been wondering at what time is optimal for

SnowDog_X1

SnowDog_X1 …for doing the big cleanup. How long before switching to 12/12?

Creepall

Creepall This is an auto so it's getting 18/6 all the time but I would say right when you switch to flower based on MrCanucksGrow's youtube channel

A friend of mine told me it was never too late to introduce colder night time temps to help buds produce purple pigments. And holy was he right, this happened overnight! I'll keep it this way from now on...

Matzulus What temperature was it approximately? Looks wonderful

Creepall

Creepall My night temps depend on outside weather but tonight temps went from 21c down to 19.8c at the end of the night. The weather is getting colder so I'm hoping to get 18-19c nights as my friend told me it was the sweet spot! And I have 26-27c days, the temperature difference between night and day is important too I think :)

AD C I live in LA we starting to get colder nights for sure that purple kicks in

Update from a botanist: Having dried out leaves like this means too much nutrients are in the plant so it pushes out it's own water in an attemp to evacuate the excess nutrients back to the medium. I'm going to flush all three plants with clear water a few times before giving back lower amounts of fertiliser even though only 1/3 plant is affected this much. The buds have not been affected! Slight stress but we'll see ;)

dinin

dinin Very true! The stomata end up burning and excreting salts onto the outside of the leaves. Abscisic acid forms and cell death occurs. This could be due to PH lockout, or over feeding. Soil with organic matter in it composts and releases nutrients, so it’s really easy to over feed. This is why people use peat moss, vermiculite, perlite, and coco. If you haven’t already, a PPM pen is abs essential to your grow. Plants will also work up a tolerance to nutrient levels if the food is increased slowly week my week, I’ve personally fed with 1250ppm with no nutrient burn. Nutrient requirements are also strain specific, one strain could need 1500ppm while another burns at just 600ppm. Worth noting that a b vitamin complex will also make your plant less susceptible to the effects of stress. What’s your PH and PPM?

Creepall

Creepall I have a PH of didn't check, and a PPM of not worried about it ;) (yet) This is my second ever grow and ofc my third grow will be featuring electronic PH/EC meters! And you are right, I treated both strains of Watermelon and AK autos the same exact way when feeding and only the AK showed signs of severe overfeeding.

dinin

dinin You will find you plants grow much faster when they are at the right ph to be able to absorb the nutrients they need. As far as Ppm, that’s how you tell if you’re over feeding so it’s worth worrying about but every grow should be a learning experience. Wait until you learn about amino acids and metabolism biosynthesis precursors 🤣

A bit late to start but I'm trying out some homemade Co2! Chemical bakery yeast(11g) + sugar(300g) + water(2L) Update: 100g sugar is better, 300g has killed the fermentation in no time ReUpdate: 2,5g ec1118 yeast + 300g sugar + 1,5L water works nice!

dinin

dinin Try a gallon wine bottle with a wide mouth and an air lock from Amazon , keeps your yeasts fresh. I also use EC1118 yeast because it produces more co2 and can survive a higher ABV.

The two Watermelon autos are doing great but the AK auto seems to be lacking nutrients, I upped the NPK dosage but I think it's also lacking Mg? Watering every 2 days 1,5L/plant with 3,3ml/L of bloom fert. Target: 25°C with 40%RH (Actual 27°C and 50%RH) Update: The Ak auto was NOT lacking nutrients ;(

They are so hungry so I'm going over the recommended dosage of 2ml, they are obviously lacking nutrients! Watering every 2 days 1,5L/plant with 3ml/L of bloom fert. Target: 25°C with 40%RH Update: they weren't lacking nutrients lol

Got greedy and added another 100w for a total of 200w. :) Watering 2x/week 1,5L/plant with 2ml/L of bloom fert. No more trimming bc I think I overdid it too early... Target: 25°C with 50%RH

Started Bloom ferts and I'm stunned by the speed of this second try as I'm a beginner. They started flowering and are looking real nice imo, I'm still trimming leaves that are above future heads.

Creepall

Creepall I was simply testing out the precise T/RH sensor using an arduino uno for it's simplicity. Now this sensor is linked up to an ESP32 dev board for it's wifi connectivity!

dinin Very very nice! Keep up the good work
