Sorry to hear about the hermie :( Other than that it's a really nice looking tent and I'm happy I got here before it was over..in fact it looks like the real fun is just starting with flowering about to explode :) Really nice set-up, it's cool how amazing that propagator works, roots like that lead to strong plants indeed!! Best of luck..gonna graba seat for the finish.

Peace

I agree with you they looked like balls, 90% sure. The more space for your other plants...

When fem you have to be ready for 99% success, 1% even if perfect environment will show balls, also more % if environment not perfect.

Nice grow! Good luck!

yes i do think that envirment could be better but dont think its that bad, a few degrees lower at root level with humitdity being 15% higher then it should be been at plant level trying to sort it out with putting a heater in the room and tent with the window open for fresh air seems to be working :) think i was just unlucky with that MM plant all the rest are grate will show more pics with update at weekend.

getting there in time is the key making sure you can check all plants even with thoose in the back of the grow tent need to be pulled out and checked to which does mean skinking your home out when doing so ,i only do this late at night to make sure i dont get any unexpected visiters.

and that airoponic propagater is grate for starting off plants gets a good root sytem but think if growinjg autos be better to go straight into pots

yep the fun has started flowering is starting to take off enjoy rest of this grow . peace :)

heres a little video of my plants, before i turned my hps light on one of the girls at the back in the middle is turning a little yellow but not from lack of nitrogen its a little different so i got some druch pro keep green and sprayed her going to flush soon so i will do a ph and ec check to see whats going on the reason i did not use powder feed is because i dont know the ph or ec it should be i did not want to make a sick plant worse so the first thing i did was check the ph and ec of the duch pro keep it green that read at ec 4.0 ph 8.0 , has anyone tried powder freed as a spray if so what ec and ph worked good for you??

anyways enjoy the vid

nice looking room man, i see the lsightly yellow plant hope you'll get her straight. I actually have already tried spraying with PF but it was on a lo smaller ladies so don't know on older ladies how they would react, just put 0,5g/L in some distilled water and spray them but not too much in case it leaves salts on the leaves, on mine i was applying it by hand so was making sure that it was equal everywhere and no big drops anywhere.

But try to start feeding them with it we have seen a lot of member get some sick plants back on trackk by switching to PF, it might work for you ;)

when i was using hard water i was taking same PH as the watering and when i use distilled water i don't touch PH. but as you have the flowers already on the buds i don't know if you should spray cause the PF is still mineral nutes and don't know if it would flush on your buds, don't want to affect your taste :). If you're patient enough apply it with your hands only on leaves it was my how i've been doi g it and they never complained

dust thanks for advice, ive gone straight for a flush and the ph on 2 plants was reading 5.4 ,when i flushed with 5.8 ph.

so i added more water with a ph of 6.5 and ec 1.0 untill it came out of the bottom of the pot left for a few minits then gently squeesed the bottom of the pot to get enough water out to messure ph and ec, now it was reading 5.9-6.0 ph and 1.0 ec .

so in next week they should be looking better :)

nice pics ... just a tip to take pics under hps ... do a white balance control on your camera..then take a pic of a white sheet of paper.. then u can take pics under hps ... most camera got this function now .. it'll give you a much more natural colors on your pics .. even under hps ...

keep going the good work ;)

hi people after my last feed im noticed some nute burn on the tips of my leaves after woundering why ,when the last feed was 1.4 and loved it , i checked my pen with calibration fluid to descover it was off by 0.4 so when i was feeding 1.4 i was really feeding 1.8 and when i have 0.2 ec tap water thats way to strong for my girls so time for a flush with low ec i think,

well a flush is certen in need for one of my money makers as in the last 4 days its gone from a few brown hairs to all brown which really took me by supprise way to early to be ready surely, its been 6 weeks from when the lights went to 12/12 hours it was the smallest plant of them all, dont look like im going to get much out of it maybe 14-19 grams thats all goos just that the plant hasnt been flushed so i got to leave it for another ten days min to make sure its got rid of all nutes so im growing to flush this plant with plain water untill only 0.2 ec is coming out the bottom of the pot .

here are some pics of this mature female enjoy :)

Lookin really good in there!! What nute burn? :P But from my own experience a flush will generally be beneficial in many situations. I'm curious about the uvb/uva lights..what are these for exactly? Excellent work..very pretty plants!

Peace

Plants are looking great mate. when the pistols all turn brown early could be a indicator that it was pollinated but must be genetic as the others are fine. Going to have to try MM sometime soon , looks the shizzle ;)

the nute burn is where the edges of the leaf are turning upwards and i think it is turning the tips of my leafs brown, i thought it could be down to not adding enough cal /mag as i had problems when in veg but got it sorted after adding some cal/mag to the mix ive still been adding 1 ml per liter , but only the small plants are the worse the bigger 3 are not as bad so i think its nute burns like i said my ec pen was off by 0.4 i think the bigger plants could handle the higher ec unlike the smaller ones, what do u think Smokeythabear ??

and the uvb is what i use to make the weed stronger in my opinion i also think it makes the weed taste cleaner with more flavor , i remember reading some where that it helps in the flushing stage to rid the plant of nutes ,dont know if its true maybe thats why it has a better taste but ive used it for 2 years now but first time ive used it at the end of flowering normaly i use it in veg and flower there is a thread on here about it some guy has been doing tests with uvb and saying it increaes the thc and cbd by 3-5 % he also has posted the paper on here about how he went about it,i read about uvb it 2 years ago and heard marijuana man talking about it on his tv show, the way i see it plants evolved with it so why not used it indoors,marijuana man says the best weed grows along the equator up in the mountins and thats where the higher concentration of uvb is. and as far as i know uva does nothing just the uvb.

Plants are looking great mate. when the pistols all turn brown early could be a indicator that it was pollinated but must be genetic as the others are fine. Going to have to try MM sometime soon , looks the shizzle ;)

thanks for the kind words pal :) as far as i can see and feel theres no seeds in that girls buds thank god, just a quick flowering pheno i think :)
