Day 8 - so I’m into my 2nd week, no problems to report. Will be purchasing a 300w LED in the next couple of weeks for flowering. Growth has remained steady, gave each a small amount of nutes today, about 1ml per 500ml or so, not going to feed much just yet as these babies have only just started.
I may upload a video unboxing the LED growlight and showing my setup, will also be purchasing a ph / moist monitor. :v::skin-tone-2:
Day 12 - tried hanging pots using bungee cords but it wasn’t worth the hassle, it made the setup a little more fragile. Happy with the overall setup now, plants at a good distance from CFL. I have ordered Advanced Nutrients Grow Micro Bloom pH Perfect and CalMag, they should arrive tomorrow so I am excited! :heart_eyes: ordering 300w LED next week :v::skin-tone-2:
Day 13 - nutrients have arrived, super excited!!
Day 14 - plants responding well to the nutrients! Week 2 is over, plants looking healthy, roll on week 3! :)

Grow Questions
ItsLegalInMyHouse week 1 started grow question 2 years ago
Hi everyone, I need some advice here. I am currently using a 200W dual spectrum CFL for Vegatation however I know that I will require a more powerful setup for flowering, if I want to get a good yield from all 3 plants.

Can anyone tell me what would be better, HPS or LED?

Techniques. Defoliation
Sgundur answered grow question 2 years ago
So the solution is easy but depends all of your cash budget, I explain better: Led light consume a lot less power and have better results in all the stages considering the low heat produced too, HPS instead cost a lot less but produces lot of heat and consume a lot of power. So I usually raccomand led light (more compact- high efficiency- low heat production)

Tell me If this answer was useful for you or not, I can give you some advice about what led u can buy on budget.
ItsLegalInMyHouse week 5 started grow question 2 years ago
Defoliation, is it worth it? It’s the start of week 5, my 3 plants are growing in a tight tent and the leaves are starting to cross between them. I’m worried that the smaller plants won’t get enough light but I’ve never defoliated before and I am nervous to try. any advice? :)

Techniques. Defoliation
Caribbean answered grow question 2 years ago
Hi there ! If some lower bud sites and your smaller plants can't get enough light then I would do defoliation. You don't need to remove the whole leaf , if only few parts of it are obscuring the light then cut them instead of the whole leaf ! You are in the first week of stretch so if you don't really want to give a defoliation a try , you can also
knit your leaves together to increase light penetration !! :grin::+1:
ItsLegalInMyHouse week 10 started grow question 2 years ago
Hi all!

I was checking on my plants and noticed one of them is showing yellow/brown spots in some the top leaves, only showing on 1 plant but I’m nervous it’s leaf septoria?? The plant is in week 10 and is my last pic on week 10 diary. Does anyone know what this could be? :)

Hi @ItsLegalInMyHouse! This looks more like a nutrients deficiency or excess in the past weeks, leaf septoria creates round-shaped yellow&brown spots, you're just having a slight yellowing between the veins. Enjoy your harvest! :facepunch:
