Do you understand how osmosis works?……
Bet a 250w hps that running/maintaining 1,800 ppm in the root-zone of a small/medium over-watered plant still severely burns or kills it.
The roots getting all swollen and leading to rot has nothing to do with the nutes and everything to do with over-abundance of water, lack of oxygen, and bacterium/fungi colonies.
Burns are common in over-watered plants because they aren’t thirsty and as a result take up more nutes than fresh water. Most of the nutes sit and cook the roots. Osmosis is occurring while the ppm’s are uneven, in this case causing excessive (albeit slow) nute UPTAKE. Regular watering just doesn’t end up lowering the tds quick enough.
Sorry for shoddy explanation lol.
They do need to dry for a bit though. And they are hungry. Choose your own technique to deal with this OP. Also “little brown spots” sounds to me like a K or Mg problem, either abundance/lockout or deficiency.
Re-growing is a great way to go! Harvest as usual except leave a double-handful of greenery around the base of the plant. Cut down the main stem so it is half as tall as the finished plant. Throw her back to vegging for 3-4 weeks and re-flower. Plants that took 7 weeks to finish the first time will finish in 5-6 weeks second time around. Reason is that for every bud you harvest will grow 2 smaller buds in a re-grow. My re-grown plants typically produce 125-175% of the first harvest.
So, re-growing is cheaper, faster and you get a known product for your efforts. I don’t see a downside to re-growing unless you have to have huge nugs.
Works for me! Good luck, BigSteve.
PS — My perpetual grow produces 100 plants a year and re-grows make up 10-20 % of my grows.
I would like to host a “jamborweed” at my house in Northern Colorado.
A jamboree, or jamborweed as I am dubbing it, is a gathering of like minds to celebrate. In light of this I want to make it clear from the beginning there will be no competition, no prizes given, no monetary validation what so ever.
There will be a great opportunity to meet other growers in the area, to network with them, and to form friendships through one of my favorite things, marijuana.
Everyone attending should bring a small sample with them, kind of like a pot luck feast. This will ensure a good time and that everyone leaves happy.
Beer will be provided while supplies last.
This event is 21+.
The Northern Colorado Growers Jamborweed 2014 will be held on Saturday, December 6. Starting time around 7 pm and will go until 1 am.
Please remember that I am holding this as a private event at my private residence and respect to myself as well as all attendees is expected.
As soon as I receive an rsvp as well as a guest head count from everyone interested I will pm that user my address.
Thanks to everyone and I hope to make this a kickass enough jamborweed that another one will have to be held!
Oh I know, I was just asking to be a dick. I’ve been in the situation countless times.
For a job you say? Use fake piss in the future, or someone’s pee who is clean.. also, making threads or asking others if you passed or not after you took it doesn’t help ease your mind. If anything, it’ll only clutter your mind more.
