| :date: Week 8 | Days 50 - 56
| :bulb: 750w :straight_ruler:26' |
| :umbrella_with_rain_drops: 33%-45% |
| :thermometer:️:sun_with_face: 75 - 81 |
| :thermometer:️:new_moon: 70 - 75 |

12/28: I did a reservoir swap on all the plants and adjusted their PHs to 5.8. Humidity was getting really low So I added some containers with water and a towel dipped in to act like a wick to increase the RH. The smell has started to get noticeable so Ill have to be adding the carbon filter sooner.

12/29: Humidity has responded well and has increased to near desired levels. All reservoirs were topped off and had their PH's adjusted to 6 because they have been dropping low lately. Moved the SCROG placements a bit and adjusted the fans as well. Refilled the ambient containers of water for RH levels.

12/30: Reservoirs were topped and although only one needed a noticeable amount. All reservoirs have dropped low again and have been adjusted to 6 to compensate once more. The humidity has reached desired levels and is being stable thankfully!

02/31: I removed a few containers of water because the RH has become fairly stable. The reservoirs were of course topped off, but today they were adjusted to a PH of 5.8 instead of 6 like the last few days. Adjusted the SCROG a small amount. The plants are showing severe Mag deficiency and I will be doubling their nutrient schedule ASAP I just fear the Nitrogen toxicity, but at this points its way better than a this Cal/Mag def.

01/01: Happy New Years!! I have set up the Carbon filter because the smell is getting very noticeable. I swapped out the back right non-focus plants reservoir with the doubled nutrients and added great white mycorrhizae as well. The Focus plant and the other had their reservoirs topped of with tap water then PHed to 5.8.

01/02: I adjusted the PHs of all the plants to 5.8 after topping them off with tap water. I also adjusted the SCROG a slight bit and removed some old foliage. The RH levels are still in the acceptable rage for my setup so I will just refill the open containers and not add/remove any of them.
-
01/03: 2 of the plants including the focus plant had their reservoirs topped off. All of the plants had their reservoirs adjusted to 5.8PH. The RH dropped a slight bit, so I mixed some PHed tap water with CaliMagic to make foliar spray. Its not enough to compensate the lack of Mag in the Nutrient schedule. Tomorrow (Jan 4th) the plants will have their nutrients increased to resolve the issues. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time in the last week to do it sooner.

_____________________________________________________

This marks the end of week 8! The nutrients will be increased tomorrow and I have a feeling the next few weeks are going to show the Focus Plants buds getting plump and dark much like its non-focus plant counterparts. The focus plant has undeniably shown its Purple phenotype at this point so that mystery has been resolved. The only questions now is how fast will these plants react to the increased nutrients and bounce? I have faith in these plants to put out a respectable harvest and i'm already looking forward to future runs with this strain now that I am more acquitted to it. All of the plants will be using Great White Mycorrhizae starting with their swaps tomorrow.

@HighTV, yeah none of the hydro shops around here carry great white so I’ll be using a similar product out of British Columbia (hopefully it stands up). Question - is your calmag regimen standard across the board every week as a supplement? Or only to offset any early signs of notable issues? I’m running DWC next and figured I better have that addressed now. I generally run it straight through on coco but will likely be cutting it off for last couple weeks of flower. Thoughts?:facepunch:

@TheBudWhisperer, Ah good catch. I had to add a decimal for the Great white to show on the nutrients list (It should be showing now). Great White contains the same Beneficial bacteria as Hydroguard and many many more!

@HighTV, interesting - didn’t see it in the nute details. Ur keepn it pretty simple eh? And what’s the diff with great white and Hydroguard? I’ve heard botanicare ain’t selln it anymore as well.

@NorCalGro, Haha thanks a bunch! I wouldn't say to healthy, balancing the nutrients for this strain is difficult. :sweat_smile:

I really like your systematic approach, and i know it is nessesary with hydroponics, I actualy thought back when i started four years ago that i could manage to do hydroponics myself. That learned me to be not so easy as i thought. I really want to try that again sometime, but i have to do more learning first! :smirk:

@HighTV, Dude, i'd send you a question over the chat. Would you like to join me there?

@Budcrack, Welcome to the show! Its definitely an unforgiving system with mistakes. However with a calculated approach once you get going its fairly easy to sustain as long as you keep with it. Just PH and check airlines daily while res swapping weekly with fresh nutrients. At least thats my method :sunglasses:

Great work there congrats! :ok_hand:
1 question only, how you predict another 5-6 weeks before harvest when it's an 8 weeks life cycle strain?
I know that the 8 weeks that breeder claim, it's an ideal number and easily can achieve 2 more weeks for harvest, but 6 weeks seems to many!

Welcome to the diary @Astrolavos thanks for stopping by! That was supposed to read 2-3 weeks I misplaced my hand on the number pad :sweat_smile:. Typically the Breeder has a very short harvest time for plants and they tend to go longer than advertised. I think I will be expecting another week or two before harvest. Probably on the shorter side to clear space in the tent :sunglasses:
