      They are doing great, but changing out the nutes this morning made me think sticking them in dirt may be a better choice.

      Take clones and flower the mother, rinse repeat.

    Day 39 since turning on 12/12, these are under a 270w Roleadro
    Harvested right side of grow box, and converted to mother and veg area.
    Thinking that, what I thought was light burn, is a deficiency, any help on this would be appreciated.
    Using AN Sensi Bloom(60ml), Sensizym(10), SensiCalMag(10) in a 6 gal DWC, Temp is maintained (Aquarium heaters, 68F) PH 5.9~
    This gives me a total of 1350 PPM, With SensiBloom bulk at 1050ppm..
    Thoughts?

      FLUSH!!! you know, the way we feed our plants, it's much more likely that they get nutrient lockout than defiiciency. So give em a good flush, and I don't know what else to suggest; maybe a regular flush every other week...

      Agree with atu - flush to get her stabilized

      How does her roots look, how does the res smell?

    Roots to me look healthy, they are brown but do not smell and fill the container.

      Testing heaters, hard to get one to go below 69 (Aquarium type). I do run a 10m/6gal of sensizym because it is a little higher temp then i would like. No current changes in routine (Besides light distance) , document all measurements routines so I can improve on the clones coming behind it.
      This is something that I'm doing, the sister before demonstrated exact same issues, that I thought was light burn on the first girl.
      Flushing now, will adjust nutrients going forward and watch closely.
      Currently flushing the system,

    Every one has been flushed and they are looking better, alltatup I did not see a smile but pretty sure one of those hussy's winked at me.
    Second Pic is the flush girls and first is my mothers and clones starting, I will also veg them until ready to move over to flower chamber.
    I cut way back on nutrients and going to rethink my whole delivery plan.

      Think the girls have turned around, really lowered nutrients and that seem to do the trick, and the flushing of course :-

        These are sisters of a plant I harvest a couple of weeks ago (Its above), I harvested it at 62 days 12/12 and I think I could of let them go a bit longer. These are at day 42, so at least 4 weeks out. I like to harvest early, just when things start turning amber.

      Had to leave for a week, girls suffered a small amount, started flushing tonight but they are still looking sweet.

        Day 67 has arrived, started flushing to get ready for harvest, this is one week later than their first sister. I like to harvest early before a ambers take over.
        Once I have dried and weighed will close out this journal.
        Whole lotta folks helped me on this but a special shout to alltatup

        Good morning fellow growers of the forbidden fruit. Today was harvest day. Started from the front and just harvested each limb.
        Stalk looked like a corn stalk and the roots and busted the plastic clone holder, I could see where the stalk and roots were restricted.. Will use something else next time.

        Roots looked good to me, they have a brown cast to them but do not stink or have any mushy spots.

        The deed is done, 41 grams from two plants in a very confined space. Seeing and reading some of the other grows I know I can do much better. In all, extremely happy with the quality and more important... so is the bride :-)

        Im rebuilding my grow area again. Seeing many examples on this forum and lessons learned.
        Better air flow and carbon filter to remove smell.
        Build carts to allow sliding Buckets out to work on both the plant and change nutrients.
        Replace, rebuild, redesign, jury rig, whatever it takes to get rid of air pump noise.
        Preview picture (bit of a tease because its already built but will show on new journal).

        I have included pictures of my "Failed attempt" at silencing my air pump. This was one of many attempts, mufflers, boxes, sacrifices nothing seems to work.

        Going to close this one out, start a new one. After a couple of weeks drying ended up with 39 grams, without the help of a couple of fellow growers could of been worse.

        Lessons learned?
        The nutrients guides are for folks who have everything down to a t, not for rookies, start off light, watch your plans and adjust fire. The clones coming behind can learn from the mistakes.
        There is something about using the exact amounts of Micro, Grow and Bloom that does not feel right, going forward I will use a nutrient that allows me to increase grow or bloom accordingly.

        I'm still out on the led lights, I have a 400w HPS in the attic that is screaming "Put me in coach".
        1000w Led are over kill for my grow space, flowering approximately 2X3 space, using a 600w led now, but keep hearing a voice in the back ground...... see above.

        Ok.... Men should get this, but make sure your zipper works correctly ie, my first attempt at using the plastic and zipper was a PIA because I glued in the zipper incorrectly. I needed it to open at the bottom, and no such luck. OK.... I know, zippers are important to everyone, but men know to make sure the zipper path is clear, same with mounting it backwards.

        Im sure there are much more, documentation is key, trusting your fellow growers alltatup and willing to push the boundaries just a tad for just a tad more, makes it fun.
        PS, Good grow = Happy Bride, life is good.

          That is what i'm using (p14 :-)), slightly modified for a 6 gal container. It has made an awesome difference. I will add a picture of the mothers, they have completely turned around and I'm running out of mother tucking room.

          "Pablo Picasso" Had us both laughing. It is amazing how creative you can get, when you are lazy at heart :-) My thoughts were that from the folks I have met on this forum before are not lazy, just have better things to do with their time then read thru some old ex Jarheads, grow room post. Myself I'm lazy, its the bride who has the input on better things to do :-). Thanks Guys, it was a fun build, solved a bunch of problems I discovered in my first couple of grows.
