You have it kicking bro!
Looks great. Nice canopy things i need help with! Havnt LSTed or super cropped mine prob go mostly all natural this grow but the yields i hear are far better using those techniques!
Today i found some white fuzzy fungus in the top layer of promix. The plants have been showing some signs of stress so i decided to take a deeper look. Once i got down to the flood table, i saw these tiny groups of black larvae. Very tiny, clumped up in groups, floating in small puddles. Im thinking it may be fungus gnat larvae? Root aphids? I dont see any insects at all. No thrips on the plants.
Anyway..... i flushed with peroxide treated water. Flushed the rez. Sprayed the flood table with h2o2. Restarted with fresh water and nutes. Added 300ml h202 to the rez.
Cleared out a lot of dead leaf under the canopy.
Hope this helps. I will keep on with the peroxide and keep watch over the little bug things.
I couldnt get a clear picture of the bugs. Tiny, jumpy, wiggly, black.
Sounds about right; if you find what looks like miniature house flies cruising around tomorrow.... but hey it sounds like you have it under control and they are among the lesser evils of the insect world. Buds are looking juicy n thicc!
Getting there. Still 25 days or so on the hybrids, probably 35 on the sativa. They are very frosty too.
The leaves on the sweet amnesia and the purple moby are looking rough. The buds keep fattening up so im not super worried. Im seeing less of the little beasties in the flood table. I keep on with the h2o2, dosing every time i refill the rez. Im not sure what the issue is with the leaves is/are. I know the ph has not fluctuated. The ppms are down to 900. Fresh nutes, flushed the plants, raised the lights, and theyre still not looking great. Worse maybe.
The blackberry is very good looking, very fat buds, lots of trichomes. A little fading is starting to happen on the leaves. Lots of super white pistils still. The sweet amnesia and the purple moby have almost all orange trichomes.
No flies or anything, so im still not sure what those larvae were.
Lesso! Dude! they are ROCKING!
I am thinking something is going on with the peroxide where you are inadvertently oxidizing something. Yeah. That's pretty specific, right? Lol I'm a bit stoned but you might be putting something necessary into a chemically less useful state by adding a free oxygen to the whole shenanigan. Every other variable is by the book and I honestly can't think of anything but a rogue oxidation reaction somewhere screwing with ya. Again: a bit stoned. Gotta think about it some more later lol
Alright. I guess i will back it down some and see
We need Umbra to weigh in on this; i get the sense he's good with redox chemistry in action lol
I found out the city did a massive Chlorine dump. That probably caused nute lock out in my plants. My other batch of plants were also affected. I ordered a filtration system to stop this from happening in the future. They are looking better by the day now. Once the filter gets in i will mix a fresh reservoir up. Ah well, it probably hurt my yield, but by the looks of it, potency will be there.
That's it. Chloride damage. Whoulda thunk! Even though it seemed to be ruled out based on your other stats... thanks, DPW! They still look like the overall development is great and harvest is just around the corner.
Another 3 weeks or less i think
Still fattening up. The purple moby will come down next week or the week after. The sweet amnesia looks like 3 weeks at least...ditto on the blackberry og. Black berry may be the heavyweight this go around. They are all very frosty and smell great. My carbon filter is working hard for sure.
Lesso! They are looking so great! Good Job, congtrats! Very Nice!
Just in time for Christmas! Nice work!
Looks really good! My mouth is watering.....
Saves me money on presents lol
