if i can chime in
my clones are fine..but i find because my lack of veg space; i have to clone them so often (no mothers, just clone the clone when it gets too tall) they seem to get thinner and thinner stalks.
i’m going to try this this season too.
its something i read shanti post about a while back, just never tried it.. always been my motto outdoor stays outside, indoor stays inside. (ever since i got pm inside; i’m very timid)
but a few of mine have pathetically spindly stalks now, so i’m going to try taking some cuts from plants outside in the sun.. see if there’s any change. *i imagine they’ll eventually get thinner and thinner, but this will atleast give a temporary boost, maybe?
as for top or bottom clones; most have said take bottoms for years.. i really can’t with my limitations. so been cloning tops.. and have great success.. most you hear on top Vs bottom clones is BS IMO
if you can’t get that Mohammad to come to you .,..you gotta go to Mohammad..? llol
20 autos for 3 months grow, at 1x us gallon per month =60 us gallons, or 2-3 bags of poop ..is not difficult, avoid the local soil at all costs, way to much of an issue, unless you know your soils and can amend..?
the real issue here is water, thats what you really got to work on…and now before you germ
I’d be sticking to one strain for a correct and bountiful harvest!
Hey, mid-level grower with a situation here. I’ve got two plants in scrog which I flipped to 12/12 almost exactly 2 months ago. The problem is that I’ll be going on vacation abroad in 3 weeks time, and I’ll be gone for 3 weeks. I’m just wondering if these girls are gonna be ready?
If not, what are my options?
cut them early?
try and DIY a watering system and let them grow while I’m away?
Let them dry out in the pots after I’ve gone?
I don’t want to be thinking about the fire hazard while I’m away on vacation, so it’s not very tempting to let the room keep going… but if an early harvest is really a giant waste I might have to consider it.
I have been doing WEEKS of research and preparation for my first grow and I plan on achieving the most optimal yield possible from 3 plants. In order for me to do this though I need some answers for the following questions. I appreciate all responses that contribute to the topic
I have a cool basement, but the only problem is, it is very dusty on the floor and there are cob webbs, not an accessible window (may fix this problem but just assume for now I don’t have a window) will it be possible to use a 400MH/HPS Light in a 4×4 grow tent without ducting? Or will the dust and debris from the basement not work out. I have a strain that is supposedly highly resistant to mould/cold conditions and produces large yield.
My second option would be to build/improvise a grow cabinet which can be built to accomodate a 400w HID light but it is nearing summer in this north central area of the US. The problem with this is it is in the attic of my garage unattached to the house so I don’t have to be as discreet (the ladder gets pulled down from the ceiling) There is also no window in this attic but I could possibly vent into the lower part of the garage?
Would it be better to just go with a 250w HID so I don’t have to worry about ducting?
I posted on here a few weeks ago because I was getting very little growth and twisting fan leaves.
I ended up lowering my PPM’s and watering less. But I’m still having problems.
PPM’s @ 550 CNS17
Water Temp between 64 and 69 f
Was PHing to 5.5 but just raised it to 5.8 because HG Roots Excellerator calls for that PH.
Leaves are twisting, yellowing, and crinkling. Also, I not noticing any root growth. I’m now only watering my 6×6 inch Rockwool cubes once a week and they are still pretty heavy with water after 7 days.
Their normal growth seems very slow as well. I’m almost 2 months into veg and my girls are only about 14 to 16 inches tall.
