Just for my notes and timeline. Roots expanding big time. Topped off res and added just a little flowering nutrients. PPM back down to 900 - It is really sucking up the H2O and leaving the solution behind based on my PPM stick. PH stable 6 even - Had a little fluctuation in res temp. I currently do not have a heater in the room. Outbuilding. I kicked on the heat a day or 2 back in res and now have it adjusted stable to 66F. Helps when the lights are off and the outdoor temps are down. Slow and steady wins the race. Working out in my head how the scrog is going to fit, if it makes it. Will not be easy to check things once everything grows up through it. Extremely hard to change out res. I may add external drain to the res tub and it probably would not hurt to add a way to fill if I go through with scrog. I don't need much as I still have a bunch from 2019, 2020 and my outdoor auto from 2021. Maybe skip the scrog. I don't need that much. I am just shooting for some killer stash and definitely bud of the month. OZ of stash from the dispensary lasts me about 3 to 4 months now. (You're Doing It Wrong) ALL OF IT - haha - Peace.

Not that it matters at this point but, My do-si-do cookies or what ever is not an Indica dominate. I been around the block a couple times now. It is like everyone copy and pasted the same stats about the structure because no matter where I look it is all the same. I guess I am trying to guess if I need to prepare to save this somehow. Ahh. Looking forward to the Durban Poison in soil on next run. I have very limited space.

Do what about yellow leaf tips just barely showing. Only on 1 plant of 3. But all 3 share same reservoir. None on the other 2 plants. Tips are def yellow and not brown. I raised the light. After a little googling. I raise every time they look like they are praying. ALSO I am now at 13 off and 11 on light cycle. I wait 2 weeks and go to 10, 2 weeks 9 and should be ready after a couple of weeks of 8. Who knows I might have something to enter for January but more than likely be February for a shot at Bud of the Month.

More bud porn. It's 3 plants that all came out of the same tin. Do-si-dos from 00 seedbank. The 2 at each end currently look about the same and smell like Juicy Fruit gum. The stretchy one in the middle smells like skunk. Root ball is same on the ends and the middle one is unusually huge. I thought I had a small batch of root rot going but I'm not so sure. I treated with half gallon of H2O2 and sprayed the roots. I'm using a wide range of organic nutrients this time around.

No bugs on the underside of anything. I'm fairly confidant that it was the garden grade H2O2 and I may have used a bit too much. Burned the **** out of my skin. Nothing like what comes from the drug store. Drained res and rinsed it out, remixed, and back up and running. See what it looks like in the AM. My root problem is way gone/fixed. I'm not going to freak out just yet. I post fresh picts as soon as the lights come back on. Going to do a little thinning out first. Let them breath a little easier and air circulating better.

What a nice journey I took thru your thread.. I've never attempted hydro, started with organics and the taste of the
weed got me hooked on it.. I read I give up yields for flavor but I'm okay with that..

I noticed in your last few shots of the root mass it went from bright white to a slight browning... are your water temps changing or PH off? like I said, not much help being a dirt dude.. but something tells me your gonna get things figured and do just great..

happy harvests man
