In this post I am going to put up pictures of the plants at 2 weeks. They are now at 5 weeks and the recent pictures will be in the next post. Out of the 4 plants that are 5 weeks old, 3 are from very good midgrades, and 1 is SuperBud. 1 week ago, I started 3 White Russians in soil, and 2 new SuperBuds in hydro drip buckets. I will post pictures of those with current pictures in my next post. (directly after this one)
5 week old plants started under HPS for first 3 weeks, then I bought a conversion HPS-MH bulb. Since then the plants have flourished. I started off on day one watering 15 minutes for every 60 minutes off with the drip system. I altered that down to 3 times a day. It is now back to 15 ON 60 OFF, I will explain why in my next post.
Home-made drip bucket system
400W MH (HPS for bloom)
I also have 2 200w equivelent warm white CFL's to enhance the spectrum and lumen output for both VEG and BLOOM
I am using Technoflora B.C. Boost, B.C. Grow, B-1 complex, Sugar Daddy, and MagiCal in VEG
The yellowing between veins is magnesium deficiency, I cured this by using epsom salt. Turns out you should NOT use epsom salt if you are using a cal-mag solution in hydro, because once you feed it more magnesium through the use of epsom salts, a calcium deficiency is probable. In a system like mine, or any other hydro system for that matter, I have learned Cal-Mag or in my case 'MagiCal' (same thing) is the best thing to use for a calcium or magnesium deficiency.
