Need Some Advice

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by ercanren, Jul 10, 2019.

  1. Hello. This is my first grow. I have 4 plants in soil (2xSuperLemonHaze feminised, 1xBigBud feminised, 1XLsd autoflowering). I will be grateful for advices and comments about subjects which sorted downside.
    1. I finished 8. week. Feminiseds look pretty well, but autoflowering take longer than feminised to flowering. It says 8 week period seedling to harvest at herbiesshop, but it only in preflowering phase at 8. week. I can see pistils but very thin. I didnt understand why it doesnt become ready in 8 week. It looks like autoflowering will be ready at same time or later than feminised ones.
    2. I gave nearly everyday (if they dont dry out at every 2 day) water at 8. week. Every first watering without fertilizer second watering with fertilizer. I use Biobizz as fertilizer. Do i gave fertilizer less than enough?
    3. My light is Kingled kingplus 1500w led above 40-50cm of plants. 1,2mx1,2m (4x4) grow tent. Is light good choice for my plants?
    4. I started to troubling with odor control although carbon filter and started to use Onagel in tent. It helps but is it really working for 4-6 weeks not sure. Still troubling with odor and will be thankful for advices.
    5. It's hard to reach soil for watering because of leaves. Maybe is there easier metod for watering or useful equipment? 6db34486-52d8-4254-a4ce-a9b414dbbef7.jpg 8c91bc9b-7cb2-4b87-980f-a005cae1c58c.jpg 34f8e27d-06f4-40ff-bd13-3a0f0b333a82.jpg 542a7aa7-6333-408a-a377-71651dcad8e5.jpg 77650282-4379-4872-9df7-81b227645a23.jpg c7dd2900-2f92-4504-aded-5201bb2d9c30.jpg
     
  2. I'm not a fan of LEDs. though I do see that many get really nice results. The issue I have with them is insufficient intensity for penetrating the canopy. Perhaps they have improved since I researched them.
    I use HID HPS lamps for my entire cycle and usually have issues with the plants being too compact and thick to get anywhere near the main stem.
    Reduce the distance of the light to the plants. Reducing the distance by half will effectively increase the available light for the plants by roughly a factor of four.
    Here is a couple of pics from the last grow so you can see what I mean...
    Bagseed...
    Flood and drain in hydroton, 3 gallon buckets
    1000W HPS
    room size ~4x5 foot, 8 foot ceiling.
    Last picture is harvest day.

  3. Hello. I have new questions for my grow:)

    1. I used bottled water for plants until now. They are drinking 10 liter everyday. If i go on with tap water can it cause any problem? There is my city tap waters analysises on attachment. Average 25 ppm chlorin and sulphate 90 ppm calcium. I searched but couldnt find any technic informations about tolerances. What do you think about these tap waters?


    2. There is little bud on the stem on attached photo. It is very far away from light and under the other stems and leaves.. Should i cut this or its late for cutting? It wont getting fat and become a nice bud in my opinion. 05f66907-8e6d-4534-bf8d-4cf3df011e0a.jpg 05f66907-8e6d-4534-bf8d-4cf3df011e0a.jpg 49590511-e9cc-4d73-b5eb-346361762db2.jpg 49590511-e9cc-4d73-b5eb-346361762db2.jpg

  4. Yes it can. The chlorine isn't an issue as it will evaporate overnight, but the mineral content will change your profile.
    In some cases this makes only a minor issue. In other cases it is catastrophic.
    Your tapwater is pretty clean and on the edge of what I would consider usable.
    I suggest that you mix up a batch of nutrients by your typical recipe and test it. Only test one plant in case there is issues.
    Problems can include,
    pH swing due to calcium content
    excess in some minerals causing lockout in others
    Buildup in the soil from salts not reported by analysis


    It is normal for the plant to generate popcorn buds.
    Picking them off isn't going to do anything for you.

  5. Many people say ridding the plant with low hanging fruit, popcorn buds, will free the plant up to not waste energy trying to produce those popcorn buds and will instead send that energy towards the top of the plant....to the canopy....making it grow bigger and better than it would have, had they left the popcorn on there.

    I have 4x4 tent and 225CFM exhaust and 145 cfm intake fan. Should i use 600w or 1000w hps. Can 225 cfm fan work well with carbon filter and air cooltube for 1000w hps? How should i do setup? first cool tube -> carbon filter -> fan -> out is suitable?

    My fan is 5inch. Does it mean its suitable for 5inch cooltube and 600w HPS ?
     
  7. A 600 will do that space nicely, and it seems that your fan would be sufficient.
    That fan will change the air in your tent roughly twice per minute... Should be enough if you have a cool intake.
    Only thing I see is if the fan has enough pressure to push through the filter.
    Typical setup is cool tube > fan > filter > out, but this depends on the design of the filter.

  8. I made setup 600W hps with my led together. Plants are getting ready to harvest. I think last 2-3 week for 3 feminised plant. Autoflower one still have way to go. I overwatered autoflower in early veg and she had trouble to become healty again. But still i dont have much clue about why she become ripen so late. Tent set up and week 11 photos are on attachment. Thanks for comments and advices.
