    And It Begins

    Day 58 Aero Tent. Res top off of 5 gallons today. It's freaking hot outside, and the inside temp is reflecting that. 78f in the tent and well within parameters, but it is the hottest it's gotten since figuring out the AC unit. Bud shots for today's picture update, because it's Sunday and why not?

    And It Begins

    I spent some time in the aero garden this morning. The main colas being so close to the lights was becoming a concern, and constantly having to tie down branches was a major PITA. I took out the lights and rigged a new hanging system for them and rehung them. It bought me another 4-5 inches of...

    I see I didn't answer the second part of your question... I'm in hydroponics, so they are constantly in nutrient solution. Right now I'm feeding at their recommended levels for "light feeding" at week 3 flower levels. Approximately 900ppm.

    I started with General Hydroponics 3 part Flora line, and switched (added) to their 6 part Flora line 7 days ago.

    Hello All! I'm Jeff! I'm 62 and doing my first grow...

    Jeff, I'm also growing gelato from ILGM. However, mine are the autoflower feminized variety. Mine are day 56 in their cycle in a 3'x3' tent. I have 2x Gelatos and 1x Zkittlez and they have nearly outgrown my tent. Yes, I would switch to 12/12 now, and if you're able to move 2 of them outside I...

    Hey Jeff. They'll go through a spurt when you flip to flower where they'll likely double-triple in overall size. Are you seeds feminized? The size of your tent is concerning to me. That many plants in that small of space and your sure to run in to overcrowding issues. I'd go ahead and flip...

    Day 55 Aero Tent. Alright, this is getting outta control 😂. One of the Gelatos is still stretching. I'm bending over as necessary. Topped the reservoir with 6 gallons of solution this evening according to week 3 GH Flora 6 part chart. They've all started to develop trichomes at this point. Temp...

    Day 53 Aero Tent. Growing right along. I'm starting to see more flower production over the past few days. They're still consuming 5+ gallons every 48 hours. I did a reservoir change today with 6 part GH Flora line according to week 3 flowering schedule @ 900ppm. Temp 74f, RH 42%, reservoir temp...

    Day 51 Aeroponics tent. I kinda thought they had quit stretching, but it appears that I was incorrect. I may have to consider putting a net up top in the coming days to prevent them from growing in to the lights. For now, I'm just bending the colas as needed. Res change yesterday using 6 part GH...

    Day 47 Aero Tent. Reservoir was ready for a top off but I decided on a reservoir drain/refill instead. GH nutrients at week 2 flowering levels, 900ppm, plus CalMag+ at 5mL/G, pH'd to 5.7. one of the Gelatos started dripping super tiny trichomes, nothing on the other 2 plants just yet. Temp 65f...

    Day 46 Aero tent (typo yesterday). About to enter heavy flowering. I'm predicting that the stretch over the weekend is going to be their last big stretch and now they'll focus more on producing flowers. pH 5.7, temp 68f, res temp 64f, RH 50% Day 34 soil tent (typo yesterday). Watered today...

    Day 44 Aero tent. I was gone for the weekend. I came back this evening and in the 52 hours that I was away the girls consumed 5 gallons of nutrient solution and the top colas have grown 4-5". I adjusted the lights to the highest height that I can take them, topped off the reservoir with...
