  1. Looks good! What's your plan with this girl, Alex?
     
  2. What lighting and height are you using ?
     
  3. Plan is to wait until shes a little taller and do some LST! Anything else I should be doing?
     
  4. I have 4 100W CFL's about 12 inches above. Should i move the lights up?
     
  5. I was just curious. I usually like my plants short and squat. Unless I’m growing a mother

  6. That's a good way to go. Good luck! Post back once in a while with an update pic.

  7. Hey guys,

    So in a form of an update, I was wondering if this is the correct way to do LST?

  8. Yep, looks good. The top will keep growing longer. Just keep pinning her down and positioning her where you want her to be while the laterals grow out.

  9. Day 35 Update for you guys! I added too much nutes during my first feeding, however the new leaves are looking good! She is still very short and stubby, is this normal?

     
  10. No, slow growth isn't usually normal. Looks like a bit of nute burn going on. More than like there is a pH imbalance that's blocking the uptake.

    What's your soil?

    What nutes have you been providing, how much per gallon and how often?

    Are you checking pH of your mix going in so it's between 6.0 and 7.0 and have you checked the runoff pH to make sure it's pretty close to the same?

    You can also do a slurry test to check soil pH.
     
  11. Soil is FF Happy Frog with 30% Perlite. I am using Botanicarer Cal-Mag and General Organics BioThrive Growth (both were used at 1/4 recommended dosage)

    I always check water pH and it is always between 6 and 6.5 and drainage pH is usually a little higher (6.7)

    I have been constantly pinning her down, that is why she hasn't been able to grow vertically but she still look relatively small.

    Thanks for the help!
     
  12. That all sounds good. What's left is heat and RH and lights. Low RH can be a problem. Too hot also can.

    Still using the CFLs? I doubt they're too close at a foot.
     
  13. Yes still 4 CFL's, i can move them up about 3 inches if that would help. RH is constantly above 60%
     
  14. 60% at the stage they're at is good!

    Ok, how about water temperature?

    It should be within the range of 68° to 73°. Lower or higher and lockouts can begin to happen. One of the first symptoms for too cold of water is very dark green lower leaves that moved up the plant and then you'll see both calcium and magnesium deficiencies after. It compounds from there.
     
  15. Oh interesting! I usually use ice cold water straight from the top.. So its COLD. I will let it sit out for a while next time!

  16. Ding ding! We have a winner. Lol

    It will take a little time for her to bound back, maybe a few weeks to really be noticeably doing better. The symptomatic leaves will eventually be surrounded by healthy new leaves.

    I'll look forward to update pics!
     
  17. Thanks I didn't realize the water temperature mattered that much. I just though the water would get to room temp eventually
