    1st bubbleponics grow

    Hi all , new to the forum glad I found this one .
    I have started a seed from a single seed found from my first soil grow . It went bad I didn't train or even know how to until I found the GWE site and have been reading ever since and has really helped so thanks to this site I am getting better .
    Since the DWC has worked so well my first try has gone OK so far . Seed started on 4-29 with Led and added a 150 watt HPS and growth is phenomenal (I think) here is a pic and not sure how many weeks left to go but looks healthy .
    I mainly wanted to say what's up to everyone here .
    And I didn't add the last pic was taken 7-3

            Thanks guys I did make a change today the colas in the back under the HPS where bigger than the front with the 300 watt LED so I took the LED down and now covering the whole plant with the single 150 watt HPS so the front Colas might fill in better . Last year I found a deal on Craigslist and picked up 4 150 watt HPS for $100 . I even thought of putting up a second HPS but looks like the 1 is doing the job . My closet is very small 23" wide and 21" deep but I keep the door open with the fans and ac I haven't had a problem with heat . Here are a few bud pics but just changed lights today so no change obviously

              This pic is from last week but gives an idea of size .
              Also I have a box of yo-yos that I need to put in because colas are starting to lean over . Which is a good thing at this point . Last grow I was in the hospital and had to shut down the grow which I didn't so any training and was shut down way too early and only got some popcorn farts off the plant .

                🌱 The buds look soooo good and long and chunky, even though they're still all white hairs! A beauty, I'm definitely subscribed! 🌱

              That was a good deal on the lights , did the bulbs come with them ?

                Yes they all had bulbs and very little to no use on them a few where still in the boxes .
                I've found a few good deals there a few years back I found 2 RO water filters never installed for $75 . Then I used them for fish tanks but now hydro water . I have a final filter on one that brings water down to .001 ppm so when I mix fert I get about 5.0 to 5.5 on PH .

                  Well the plant is drinking about 1 gallon a day since blooming started but I see now I should have pruned the bottom more . I would do it now but even the small buds are looking good and don't want to shock the plant now that would suck . But I have read that I could trim during flowering stage but also read it might shock so I think I will just cut the big colas when ready and leave all the others to ripen up . It will take longer but can still get maybe an extra oz off if I leave them . Here's a bad pic of the whole plant .

                    🌱 I'm not sure I would have changed anything, you have such huge long colas that are completely exposed to the light! I'm not sure the light would even be able to penetrate any further down considering how long the colas are! Seems like a great shape to be in during the flowering stage! Looking good~ 🌱

                    I know berrypilot I was thinking the same thing if its not broke don't fix it but the room is so small the the LED and HPS where hitting side by side and the HPS was all the way against the wall . And if I raised the HPS it would be over the LED and was blocking the HPS so when I took the LED down it actually gave more light to the front and only moved the HPS about 4 inches . But I check the plant 3-4 times a day for water and any change in growth .
                    I am definitly not growing to do any major defoliation now just a few fan leaves that might pop up .

                      Has anyone tried putting lights on the side or lower part of their plants ? I was thinking about putting the led or HPS on the lower side aimed at the base but still might wait until next grow I have a lot of time in this one and don't want to mess with it . Like when I topped this one it was looking so good I hated to cut it back but it really came back and manifolded nice I just could have defoliated better during veg state .

                        Medman, here's a pic of my grow box with 3 T5s on the reservoir lid. I think it helps the lower buds... If I were a lower bud, I would want it there...
