Couple of days later. Day 37 veg. They had a little slowdown in growth i think. When the three were well covered by the kind led, growth was pretty good. Once the plants needed to be spaced out, they stalled, not a lot but noticeably. For that, I just finished putting in my 2 mars hydro sp 250s. I am now up to a 1000 watt grow with all 3 lights going. Its a chore to cover a 5x5 screen with enough light. Now the space is well lit, i expect the growth rate to climb back up over the next week or so. The light is well proportioned with the lumens meter showing only a small drop off on the very edges of the tent. 80000 at the canopy is the reading fwiw. Ph is good, 5.8 to 6.2. Ppms have been in the 900 to 1050 range, no nute burn. In fact i think this blackberry og and the moby would like more food. But sweet amnesia will get crispy tips around the 1100 mark. I have noticed a bit of goopy bluegreen algae beginning to grow in the tray and on the pots, for that i have added some h2o2. I like to keep my grows as clean as possible so the goop got to go. The screen is basically full. Im giving sweet amnesia plenty of room to stretch out, she looks really sativa like. One week until i lollipop under the screen and flip a few days after that. Also, i added the 2 oscillating fans that clip to the tent. Im glad i got 2, they are a little on the weak side. 2 is just about perfect.

Plants look good and healthy.
You need to do a lot of trimming, everything under your screen and all sucker branches needs to be removed.
Screen holes are a bit big also.

Im an old hand when it comes to growing into a screen. The hole size is irrelevant. I only trim when im ready to flower....why stress the plant before you need to?

I have two of the sp250 in a 4x4 with a single GG#4 under them at 49 days. So far I'm liking them and my plant stretched less then I expected under those lights.

Good to hear. Im happy so far. The plants are looking more vigorous and reaching for the light more now.

Yeah because if it isnt done your way it couldnt be right. Thank you for your awesome critique of my grow! I feel youve changed the way i look at things forever!
Hey everyone.....growdude is here to tell us what is and what isnt! Arent we so lucky?
Look champ... i have many big scale grows under my belt, hundreds of times have i used a screen over the past 2 years. These little home grows are experiments with little tweaks. But thanks for your awsome posts.

Had some light stess after putting in the 2 sp 250s. Backed them off to about 24 inches from canopy. Im giving them until weds to recover. Then a firm trim under screen. 3 days later they will go to 12 hours light.

Day 43 veg. The light stress is gone. They are growing out of it well. I plan to prune/lolli tonight. They are drinking about a gallon of water daily. They were looking droopy so i bumped the flooding to twice daily. They are green and perky. All showing female pre flowers and its time to flip. Im going to give them a bit to recover after i prune tonight so i will prob flip to 12s on thursday. Overall i have a very even canopy to start flowering with.

3 plants in a square. I did that my last grow and one plant that I allowed to take half the tent for its own wound up out producing the other 2 combined though that may be strain related. Looking good and healthy.

I was wondering when I saw the pic where you added the 250's how long it would take you to raise 'em. I had the same problem with my gg4 scrog but mine got stressed worse then yours. Those lights are not bad at all, to powerful for 12" above canopy. Lookin' good.

I'm loving your progress pics, it's great to see how you manage lights/space/pruning over time, and those plants are super happy!

Day 6 of 12/12. The end of week 1 and what is normally a transitional period for the plants. There was one hiccup in the dark period when a timer malfunctioned and didnt shut the lights off one night. Now They have full power light and arent showing any signs of light stress so far. I can see some early signs of pistil production and a little stretchiness. This week and the next 2 weeks should see an explosion of both. Im having a bit of green algae in the res and the tank. I added 200 ml of 34% h202. The algae doesnt seem to be harmful....just icky.
Ph has been very steady and in the proper range. Ppms are elevated up to about 1250. The purple moby and blackberry love it, sweet amnesia has very slight tip burn, im going to keep my eye on it. I will backdown if i need to. Blackberry is the biggest plant now with moby and sw amnesia about the same size. The sativa really shows in the amnesias leaves. If i had to guess i would say it will stretch the most but who knows. The canopy has really filled out after the prune-ening last week. The plants are healthy. No sign of pests or stress this week.
