    Californiakid alltatup I remember reading Atu`s blog other month where she had to keep her door open even though she had some sort of AC in her living space. Now the Kid`s mrs is on his case I bizarrely don`t feel so alone. You`re right CK, winter block grows it seems. AC is just heaping on the cost. As it is I reckon I spend equivalent $110 dollars a month on power, poss a bit more. Solidarity and more grey hairs it is then. Thanks for the time and support guys, really do appreciate your input. Stay mellow. We were having a bit of a storm yesterday evening and I admit I was a bit blasted so I went out and shouted ODIN top of my voice to the clouds. You know, try and get him send some cooler winds from the icy Northern wastelands. Think I may have freaked my female neighbour out. Keeping a low picture today...oops

    At least there's a little solidarity among us as far as the heat goes: many of us are battling it and having to spend more $$ because of it.

    Pagan, So sorry for the heat struggles!!! Is the clawing nitrogen-related? I sure hope they stabilize: they look like they still have a lot of life in them.

    PaganRich it is. If had the money, just run the air conditioner and keep it cool. But this setup I've cobbled together isn't efficient by any stretch, so my Mrs is not happy about pissing away $$ to electric company. So I have to make better with my winter run. And better we shall!

    Heat is our biggest foe right? I'm not growing peak hot season next year too. Too expensive. But I can make it more efficient, so thats my next chore when the $ is there.

    How goes it brother. The heats a mean bitch. Finished up last round bout 4 or 5 weeks ago was bout to have to run auxiliary a.c. but toughed it out but light on temps in low 80s. I wouldn't give up on ur girls. My brother just finished up a grow where he defoliated or schwazed or what have u. I go hard but he went lead pipe hard. Basically left the top set of fans. He did it at 3 and took em bout 3 to boom back. I don't know what kind of nutes ur using or how there chelated. But it's edta derived I wouldn't use em. Killing the bennies in ur tea. I'm no expert this is just what I do. I would make the opposite tea uve been doing. If u been bacterial I would go fungal. The diversity will help balance ph if that's ur problem. I also do herbal tea chickery has lots of silica. I put aloe in almost everything. Also do the sst. I switch to barley and alfalfa in flower. Happy gardening

    I would try flushing them until run off is right ph and ppm is where you want it , I agree with shutting down in june and starting in Aug to avoid the heat and humidity

    oldjarhead100 D.A.A.S.69 Anyone else please feel free to pile in.... Lads, I`ve got problems and I`m a hairs breath from cutting these 2 girls down and switching one of the lights off...actually I might just do that and cut my losses. Amount of electric, time, effort, nutes plus I`m royally f##ked off....hand is twitching towards the shears that`s for sure.
    Pic 1-2 shows Veg tent...400w light and its fine.....so no issues right
    Pic 3 shows Bud..slight tip burn (mega slight) 3-or 4 small lower leaves yellowing but seems to be okay. Height from 600w between 20-22"
    Now this is where the fun starts. I run a dehumidifier in the tent overnight, small thing but adds a little heat through air. Got passive air intake as well as 6" fan. Exhaust is 6" fan though attached to a 5" air cooled tube and another 4" fan attached to another 5" tube. Bulbs are 2x 600w. Tent is 240 x 120. Heat has usually been around 82.5-88f and 77f at night since I flipped them. I`ve re-rigged airflow in that time and have 3 fans 24/7. Twice plain teas to one feed and easy on nutes added by about 50% of usual. Seaweed in the mix.
    So Red Diesel and Bud are okay. Chemdog is shagged and now clawing and leaves are going yellow/ white throughout. Purple E is the same. Pic 4-5 shows Purple, Pic 6 shows Chem. Average height from lights 20-22"
    This is my thoughts...these are indicas, it`s been consistently too hot and 3 weeks of environmentally hot conditions has caused overall heat stress resulting in yellowing. This then produced a breakdown between soil/ leaf water evaporation and I`ve now noticed the soil is staying roughly the same weight so they`re not drinking which then leads to root problems. Everythings stopped grow wise except the continuing yellowing with the clawing just developing. Only good news is temps are down to 75.5-81.5f and with temps now falling cos of Autumn should be able to stabalise around that. (Next year the main tent is shutting down between late June til start of Sept...limited grows in veg tent instead)
    Now, is it worth keeping these going cos I don`t want shit buds to smoke or waste time/ effort growing shit buds. That will seriously niggle me. Do I cut my losses or is there wiggle room here. I can`t use 400`s as the tent is too big and they`re not powerful enough for my yield requirements. Do you think I`m reading this right? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks for reading and any thoughts guys

    PaganRich Yes indeed, beware of mixing wax and pickles!!!

    But we are talking on (at least) two different levels: if ever there were a doble entendre, this were it...

    alltatup Ah right, you`re on about that....thought you were talking about something else....I really don`t know how to respond to that wax statement without getting myself into a pickle. Lass, when you dance with the Devil you get burnt. I shall also ponder your advice and have a think
