D50/FD22 - Right, water change day (Evening). Right and proper f**ked off with the light doing me over (See D49/FD21 Comment for that epic story!!!). Where stretch had stopped (I thought), plants are back in the lights AGAIN!!! Blaming the light giving a near 24hour session and some other broken sessions of light over the last 48 hours!!! So had to pull out the extraction as getting LED burn on leaves that are touching! Blowing through the Carbon Filter and can't really smell anything so that's not bad. Everything a wee bit noisier with the fan not being muffled in the tent but need the space and got around a foot. Not prefiltering the fan as I have the new Cloudline to go in for next grow. Hopefully they grow no more and its all thickening buds from here so as I have space for the UVB in there in a week or 2!

Slight change in feed. Dropped the roots booster as Wilma can't take any more...its full!!! Dunno how I am still getting 50L of water in there!!! Added PK9/18 (At half strength). Should probs drop the calmag (Or Kind Base down a bit) to drop nitrogen but am still seeing some copper spots here and there that looks like wee calcium deficiencies (Not much, but its there) - I do have some BioBizz CalMag (Which is Nitrogen Free) but it leaves the tank stinking with precipitate and dirties the roots.

Think this is the 1st grow I have had where all the stems staying green so plants generally healthy.

Cherry Pie still not budding up as quickly or as thickly as the Red hot Cookies but looks like its maybe running only a couple of days behind in growth so no biggie. Few weeks left for it to catch up and surprise me at the end! :grin:

Now just to make sure I see no signs of re-veg...as per the D49/FD21 comment, I'll be scowling at GeekLight this week. Digital Timer in there now to ensure no bleed through - power gets hard cut like old times. Unfortunately though, when the light comes on via power-on (and not app timer mode), UV & IR comes on too so have a timer set to stop it after 1 min (Its about all the app being used for now!!! Apart from turning on my IV at midnight for 4 hours - which is, I have just seen, still working).

Think that's all the s**te I have to talk for now! Happy Growing all!!! :muscle:

D53/FD25 - Nothing much to report...Cookies coming along great...still a bit of push in them all but defs slowing down! Sweet Cherry Pie running a bit behind but buds starting to look better now - it probably got the 13/11 too quick and have added a week onto her (Hopefully not though and she races on through at the end!!!).

Plants drinking 5+ liters a day. Taking on Slightly more water than feed so added 15L back last night of just plain tap water...brought the EC down to 1.5 (Had crept up to 2.0) and that brought the pH back to 6.0/6.1 - seeing a slow drop in pH but to be expected as they eat the potassium up. Rather than keep these at 6 on the nose, I'm trying to let them flit more around the 5.8 mark as not seeing any calcium issues (of any note...just a spot or 2 on 0.1% of leaves) and the stretch *looks* to be over now so they should have a bit less of a requirement. Also, depending on what chart you look at, Hydro pH for Calcium is best below 5.9 (down to 5.5 where some say has to be 6 and over) and really, magnesium is the only one that really needs 6 and over (But starts in the 5.8 area for uptake).

Apart from the ever reducing headspace, all going according to plan so far! Happy growing all!!! :muscle:

D54/FD26 - So looks like the Cherry pie is having a final push to itself...its sprouted up a bit and is light praying so hopefully this is the last kick it has before full flower production. Plants still drinking heavy and feeding light but no issues to speak of...1 Cherry Pie at the very back corner has the slightest bit of purpling on a petiole or 2 near the top but the rest of the top of that branch is green so will observe to ensure no serious progression. Likely a symptom of the stretch though as its now getting some full pelt light on it. Should be plenty of PK in there so unlikely a deficiency there...it is next to a fan too and the side of the passive vent so could be its getting a touch of chill from the morning temp drops before the heater kicks in (Still keeping everything above 20C...may let it slide down now for colour to 18 to be the bottom night temp.

Apart from that, still motoring along nicely. Happy Growing all! :muscle:

D50/FD22 - Wee question...Has Botanicare pulled the Kind Line? Can't find it on their webpage anymore! Feed Charts and all gone!!! Anyone that can let me know, please do. Have probably 1-2 more grows with what I have left - need to see if I need to research a new feed line for next year!!!
