I have my Ebb& Flow setup on line now starting into it's third week. I am growing what i was told is Arizona. Is this strain anything to write home about?. I also have a Momma plant(praying she is a she) of sour diesel growing along side for about 3 1/2 weeks, in soil however.18" at present. I just got my PPM meter(hanna pocket tester) on saturday and checked my levels. The reading was 1930PPM, quite high. What's puzzling to me is that my plants have gone from 8" to 16" in about 5 days, huge growth compared with almost no growth over the first 2 weeks. I did get antsy between the first and second weeks while waiting for my meter, and my plants to begin to grow and added a bit more Floronovogrow to the Res. I have a ten gallon Res pumping to 10-1 liter pots. I set my levels conforming to the bottle instructions as 10Ml per gallon. That's about 10 tsps. for ten gallons of H20. So as of today, i have added about a gallon of fresh, PH water to the original 10 gallons, for evaporation, and have put in 15 tsp of Nutes over the entire 3 week span. If my levels do not come down, i am going to drain out the res and replace with all new solution. I haven't been able to get my PH lower than 6.5, but i have not seen any issues with this. I am going to get some PH down today or tommorrow. I got a grow chart that is about 10 weeks long total and shows after the end of the third week, to put the plants into flower. Is this a judgement call or should i stay true to the chart. I don't want to flower them when they are too small. They are getting pretty bushed out now but are still only 14-16" each. Is there a certain height that i should wait for to flower? I have a 7' ceiling in my room and at present, my system is on a 24"table to gain as much light as possible. i figure i will remove the table when the plant heights are consistent with the height of the table. Can i use PH down, that i use for my swimming pool, in my Ebb and flow. Is this a different makeup then what they sell for hydro?. A long rambling post, finnally comes to an end.
