        LAST NIGHT TOOK A L, BUT TONIGHT I BOUNCED BACK...YOU A REAL ONE IF YOU KNOW HOW TO BOUNCE BACK-- Big Sean

        LurkingInTheGrass How nice of you to ask. They were perking up yesterday, so lack of water/nute to roots was a definite part of the problem. But lovely white roots have been descending for the past 3-4 days. Today the new nutes arrived, I immediately changed reservoirs, and they are happy campers. They've been growing, and now their color should improve quickly.

        LED box: They were struggling, but they weren't dying. Now they done bounced back like the OGs they are. I am too, too fkn proud of them. They are magical.

        HID box: They're monsters. They're a week younger than the LED plants. I topped them yesterday at number 5, so 8 bud sites will emerge. They have so much "Sativa" genetics, man, they're already stretching!!! I'm not used to it. I can tell that I'ma have to switch to 12/12 in the near future to keep them from outgrowing the box. Maybe week or two. They germinated about a month ago.

          Yeah, they weren't cheap, but they gave me a good price for my second one. They've been making these for 18-19 years. There was no way that I was going to be able to "build" a grow room, and I did want something self-contained.

        Sorry alltatup, I wanted to know how your system works? Do you have porous stones inside? Or does it only circulate the water from top to bottom?

          I use the hydroton clay pebbles in my net pots. This is my grow box (I have 2)
          :https://www.bcnorthernlights.com/products/room-mate

          It is a computerized box that has an 18/6 hour veg and a 12/12 flower in it. There is a hydroponic reservoir below and irrigation spikes above that go into the net pots. Does this answer your questions?

        Thanks for the info. It must have cost you an eye of the head! How many liters is the water tank? I allow myself to make observations on that system, do not take it as an offense but as an argument. I notice you have only one point that puts water in the pot, it was not better to have a ring in the pot instead so the water fills from all parts of the pot. That system from what I see can not be temporized, the water must always circulate to oxygenate the root rot risk. I advise you to avoid this problem of using Total Care. Now I also understand why when you removed the black discs you found the yellow leaves. Effect due to the jet of water against the clay that creates splashes that go to hit the leaves below, creating problems of perspiration. I would advise you to insert an agitator for aquariums or even better a porous tube with relative pump. I hope you are not offended.

          Famine Not offended at all, my friend!!!!!

          The tank is 16 liters, and I have water chillers attached to both reservoirs. I have not had a problem with root rot since I got the chillers.

          The irrigators: Yes, I also think the irrigation is poorly designed, and I irrigate by hand: I turn on the irrigation, and move the wand around the pot.

          Perspiration on leaves: No, that was not the problem: the problem was that the rooters and the interior were too dry, which is when I started irrigation manually. So the seedlings weren't getting enough water. That was one part of the problem. The other part was that I was using some very old nutes.

          What is a porous tube with relative pump? I have air stones in the reservoirs.

          See below: the problems are cleared up and the plants are growing!!! ;-}

        LED box on above: bud sites below are emerging from the spots where I pinched off dead/dying fan leaves. They are very small on the widow, but she will produce something. They need a few more weeks in veg, for sure.

        HID box below: I topped all plants earlier this week and today I bent three out of four to control height and expose all bud sites to light. One to two more weeks in veg--or until the reach 9 inches height.

          Good day alltatup, I’m glad u ironed out the previous problems, who would have thought that the automatic watering system would f u up like that? Was it new?
          Im still a bit shy when it comes to dwi and thankfully I’m learning thru u and your posts what some of the pitfalls I might incounter in future grows.💋

          Ok, understand everything. The porous tube is like the only porous stone that is 30cm long and can be shaped as desired, the little 'I mean the oxygenator. I'm interested in growing up in that box.

              Given my own experience, a 2” air stone can create significant turbulence and provide excellent misting of the roots and provide oxygenation. I’ve used those long tubular air tubes in many aquariums and they to work well but within the limits of a few gallons of a water bucket, the air stone is likely the easiest. Weighting it down requires nothing. Those tubes have a tendency to float

                THE BOUNCE BACK CONTINUES:

                The girls are bouncing along. Except for little bitty widow who is the runt, they benefitted from my defoliation of all the lower necrotic leaves, and lots of bud sites are emerging. They were hungry!!! Close up of left rear, jackie herer. Upper right: C99 is the leader; she's hungry again.

                HID box below is where the potentially tall plants are, so I topped them and continue to LST them, which has to be done every day. Yeesh, they just wanna reach for the sky.

                They are like, Diamond in the back, sunroof top, diggin the scene with a gangster lean...

                I LOVE MY NEW FUTURE HARVEST NUTES!!!!!

                These plants are growiing so lushly now I can't believe it, and I have so much more rootage!!! I understand that all the problems were nutrient-related because I had to use my 3 year old BCNL nutes for the first 3 weeks' after my 8 seedlings' germination (I sold the AdvancedNutes I had); they were starving to death, and I saw symptoms I'd never seen before on the leaves. I figured out what it was a couple of days before my nutes arrived from Canada, and told the plants to hang in there just a little longer.

                This past week, the first full week of FH's full line of nutes, they grew so much, so greenly, and so lushly\!!! They went from the verge of starvation with necrosis slowly inching its way up towards the tops of the plants, to voluptuous plants with thick trunks and tons of white roots, just bursting with energy. I'm calling them all Lazarus right now.

                Cannabis plants are incredibly hardy. They really stick by their human. If I can get away with two more weeks' vegetation, lil WW may actually get her bud sites growing and produce a lil sumthin. If I can get away with three more weeks without them getting too tall, I will do it. I'm usually all itchin to switch to 12/12, but I'm not this time. I really want to get them ready for the switch. So grateful to them for hangin in there with me.

                    I tried around 2013 to get a job in Canada, and I had an on-campus interview in Squamish, BC: the surrounding mountains were extraordinary in their brooding beauty. But we weren't a good fit for each other. I was meant to stay where I am right now at my little HBCU; I got tenure there a couple years later. But I do have made respect for Canada, as you know. You guys would never ever elect someone like this country did: mine is truly a nation of savages, though the French engaged in slavery in Canada as well.... sad... gotta go watch Maru...
