I found a "PAR?" meter app for my phone. I'm sort of searching threads now for what I should be shooting for. Lots of threads out there... Hmmm. Any suggestions?
PPFD(umols/m/s^2) is what most lights I have seen are spec’s at. Around 500-700 umols/m/s^2 is what I have seen recommended for veg. 900-1500 for flower unless you supplement with CO2. Does the app have units of measure? I have an app and it says to put a diffuser(like Scotch tape) over the camera lens to use it.

Strange to me, before and after shots. Angle is not the same but basically, it seems, they went from no to some Trichomes in 1 light cycle. More is better. I was about to get nervous, last run I had a ton of them from what seemed like the get go of first showing of their sex.

Kind of neat how one day there is no Trichomes and the next day they are starting everywhere. My bud porn for the day. General Hydroponics Technaflora series. One whole heck of a long ways to go. I been watching Subs thread on RKS and doing a lot of side searching too. I had a buddy that had tons of seeds saved from the mid 70's through the early 80's. I been trying to contact him but I doubt if he still has them. Would have to grow a bunch of them before one of the RKS ever showed up. Pipe dream is that he saved them. I am going to see if I can find him.

OK... Jinxing myself. I have not had to put one drop of up or down in since I mixed the new nutrients a week ago today. The res has dropped and the nutrient PPM's has stayed the same. Drinking as much as it is eating for once. I want to top it off but the hose temp is going to be in the 30's. From what I have read they say change every 7 to 14 days. I have good vibes (So Far) going with this one. Pecker Gnats are dead and have not came back, yet, (Endall).. Moore's law tells me to go ahead and order the supplementals that go along with the GH Flora Series. The old timer in me tells me anything owned by Scotts / MG should be dumped in the alley. I think I better continue to keep it simple and I'm sticking it out with GH until it's over. I am extremely satisfied so far with the stability/purity genetics wise of this strain. All the plants look structurally the same, for once. Thank You Mr. Soul. Too bad I have set my 12/12 so that is is on at night and off in the daylight hours or I would be able to fill/change when it's light outside.

These F/N pecker (fungus) Gnats are driving me crazy. I actually have Mosquito Dunks, in the room. I am scared to put them in my reservoir. Anyone else ever drop one in your res during flower? I might be brave enough if I was still in Veg but pictures tell another story. I have been lightly spraying H2O2 (from dollar general this time, not the stuff I used last time) on top of the hydroton decent, not too much, and underneath just barely on the roots themselves when I see them embeded. So far they are staying out of my plants. Wait till they start getting stuck in my buds. I did order that stuff Sub was talking about "Lost Coast Plant Therapy". I'm sure it's still a day or 2 away. I'll have to track it. Has anyone used that stuff in their res? I have studied up these Gnats some but most of the advice and threads I'm getting into is related to soil and not hydro. They were bad this summer in our area, maybe a queen or something ducked in under the vinyl siding before it started getting cold out. I'm getting close to yelling for help. ??

Hydroponics Application: Place an appropriate portion of a Mosquito Dunk into a nylon sock (helps prevent solid debris) and drop into reservoir. If your infestation is overwhelming, after 24 hours, knead the Dunk slightly to help intensify bacteria saturation - this will shorten the lifespan of the Dunk. That will kill the larvae.
It won't kill the adults. I use something bright yellow and put Vaseline all over it and hang it next to your grow. The adult gnats will be attracted to it and stick to the Vaseline on the cardboard or whatever. I actually use yellow fly swatters.

I didn’t know that fungus gnats got into hydro grows too. I thought that was a soil thing… I’m still crossing my fingers not to have any in my two tents with the strawberry soil. Went the whole grow into auto tent with zero which was a first for me… I guess you have sticky traps…
