Budget CFL grow gogogo!!!

Recommended Posts

Baby Blue Cheese is not a baby anymore... seems like every time I turn around her water bucket is half empty!

The Flowers are really starting to build up nicely as well!

I did turn her nutes up a bit more than normal this last feeding and I think I mite have burned her lightly... there are some brown tips on the leaves but this time around she did not curl at all or wilt from the food... she is defiantly a tender strain and I don't think she enjoys the bubble bucket...


keeping ph at 6.5 and ppms 225-250

Thanks Jose! I am really interested in seeing how thick these flowers get also... can hardly wait to see how they ripen~!~!

Thank you Reaf! I agree with you... I gotta say I am hard pressed to find any good CFL grows on google.com.... I am beyond surprised how well they do grow plants man~!~!~!

I love these one plant set ups I think you could surprise yourself growing this way as you are keeping close eye on your lady is it bid budda blue cheese as I have grown this in soil and it did not mind the nutes as they were a little bit high as I had no ec meter or ppm meter to check&when I did check it was 1.8 ec but that was about 2 weeks from the end just before flush nice grow peace to you

yo nicc1976 from what I was told this is a barneys farm blue cheese if there is such a thing... I never really checked into it to b honest....

from my exp if u feed her to much she will claw really bad.

under super light feeding she seems to thrive for the most part.... I just don't think this strain likes bubble buckets.

If I counted my days rite this is the end of week 5 of flower.

Seeing lots of white pistel's turning orange and the tri-combs are changing from clear to white.

this plant is something else... looking back through my journal I see she was up to 400ppms and doing ok during veg... but these days even with the flowering mix she seems to claw and show burnt tips even if I go to 200ppms.....

anyone ever seen this happen with a plant before?

other than showing clawing and burnt leaf tips everything else seems to be going swimmingly!

starting to think I mite need to tie her up soon seeing as how my canopy is drooping LOL is not so even anymore! upon closer inspection she is so darn heavy up top a few of the back branches are twisted down to the ground lolol!!!


I just propped her up against the wall for the time being.... till I can fandangle some support with string or something....

yeah some people do, not me personally i've never had the need of it, but i've seen it done, that being said i would wait a little more befor eharvest i still see a lot of new growth on your top buds, and they would benefit from it ;)


But looks good and it look like next time you will need more bulbs to cover all the plant hehe ;)

Have a good grow

Because I only smoke my own weed I have this problem when you need a joint you need a joint I find if you pick the little buds around the bottom of plants it does not affect the rest of the plant and stress her out to much a lot of people get rid of the little buds around the bottom before they get time to start producing so the top get the push they want to produce bigger buds but because I need a smoke about 2 weeks usually before my ladies are finished I go round the bottom buds dry them out with a little bit of leaf with crystals good leaf material it is not to bad but I dont need super strong just to keep me level and slow me down a bit hope this helps peace and nice grow
