Looking for good growth this week. Plants are starting to smell stronger. I think they are still behind schedule. I’m gonna introduce a half dose of Buddha grow supplement and maybe cal mag. Read a lot about how calmag is necessary in coco.

Grow Questions
kbloom week 2 started grow question 4 years ago
I am new to growing, am just starting a journal as documentation in order to make future adjustments. The grow has started off slow and I am looking for recommendations. I am using 3 gal pots with pre mixed organic nutrients in coco.

A few tips. If I am reading this right, you are using a mix of soil with coco and perite right? The first tip is to keep an eye on your temperatures, if they get below 73F (23C) the growth rate will be very slow (not your case); second, watering, at this stage, only give a cup of water every 4 days, why? to force the plant to make a strong root zone and additionally if you give any more the plant will become waterlogged and it will have trouble getting oxygen through the roots (this makes the plants growth slow down to a crawl), only increase the amount when you notice that the media dries faster. Third, check the light to plant distance, 30 inches could be too much decreasing the light intensity that your seedlings are getting, try putting it closer, but mind that the heat is not too much; there's a simple test you can do, place your hand at canopy level, if it is too hot for the back of your hand, then it's too hot for the plants. Fourth, train your plant, as it grows try to get an even canopy so all tops receive the same amount of light, google LST or TOPing and try to learn to do it. Good luck mate and patience

Looking for recommendations on when to harvest. This is day 51. I got a trichomes viewer and don’t see any amber yet and mostly clear and some cloudy. The plants that is furthest along appears to be struggling and has some leaves drying up. Thanks for the help

Hello ! The best moment to chop for a peak of THC ( and potency ) is when the trichomes are mostly cloudy/white , the best time to srart the flush is when your trichomes are almost ready , if you want 90% white trichomes then flush when you see 80%. Now concerning the flush ,for soilless/hydro grow a week is the average , 10 to obtain a yellow colour ( so less chlorophyle ) but 7 days is good enough. Now concerning your plants I can say that the dark green colour is caused by a slight nitrogen excess but it can be fixed by using a bloom fertilizer with more PK than N , also the purple stems could be a sign of a magnesium deficiency but the leaves does not showing the others signs so I bet it is a genetic trait of you strain. The yellowing tips could be an over feeding sign too but also looks like a Potassium deficiency as the edge of the leaves an the tips are yellowing but I'm not sure about it. I hope ot will help you :grin::+1:
HighTV answered grow question 4 years ago
Hi there @Kbloom! overall agree with @spinnergrow about the yellowing tips being caused by Nutrient burn. The plant with the Chlorisis(yellowing) on the leaf tips Needs to be flushed with Pure water PHed at 6.1-6.3 for 3-4 days before continue back onto a feed with reduced nutrients. In terms of Trichomes you are doing a perfect job so far watching them for the harvest time- I HIGHLY recommend aiming for as much Cloudy Trichomes as possible to give a mental head high and some Amber for a body high! Be sure to leave a full week of time before your harvesting to Flush the plants of all the leftover nutrients with pure water for a cleaner smoke! If the furthest along plant is struggling then don't be afraid to Harvest her a little early this can help maintain trichome quality on a degrading plant. Long story short you have nothing to worry about this late into flower that you can seriously change, just flush the plant for 3-4 days and return on a reduced nutrient schedule until your harvest time! :sunglasses:
Stick answered grow question 4 years ago
Hi @kbloom! Use a hand-held magnifier/microscope and take a daily close look at the trichomes, they will tell you when to start to flush and when to harvest. Once you see the first milky trichomes you can trigger the flush phase, trichomes will take several days to turn 100% milky, usually between 8 and 12 days in coco, this will be your flush duration. Watch the color of the runoff, it should get more clean & clear each time you flush. Try to decrease your relative humidity for this last week (50% is a bit high, 30% would be better), this will encourage resin production and will prevent any mold/bud-rot issues. After each waterings make sure your containers get a cool and continuous breeze, this will help them to dry faster and avoid overwatering symptoms. Clear and skinny trichomes --> too soon, milky and fat trichomes --> best time to harvest, amber trichomes --> too late, THC is degrading. You will probably mixed trichomes, like 80% milky 10% clear 10% amber, this is still a very good ratio. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and enjoy your harvest :facepunch:

I have a very slight yellowing of tips on some of my plants. This is about 3 days after giving nutrients. It seems like it could be nutrients burn. Should I flush now or just water a few time with no nutrients??

@kbloom, Relax - your plants look great. When you say "3 days after giving nutrients" - I'm slightly confused because I thought you already pre-mixed the nutrients into the medium.

Added a few pics. Any help would be awsome!!! Thanks in advance.

I did pre mix nutrients into soil, but only half the recommend dose. So I topped dressed each plant with just a table spoon of dry nutrient. It really increased growth but then I noticed the slight burn. My plan is to just water with ph water the next few feeding to clear them out a bit. The burn in very slight and doesn’t seem to be spreading. Thanks for the help really appreciated

Just wondering why you are going to add Cal-Mag? From the pictures, you don't seem to have a Cal-Mag deficiency.

@Hybrid, I agree mate :+1:

Things look great so far and flowers are exploding :ok_hand:

Thanks for the support buddy :facepunch:

All the best :v:

@DinafemSeeds, Agree, this is a cool diary. I think this grower will learn a lot. Nice.

@Hybrid, I agree. Sometimes as growers we get a little eager and need to learn a little patience :+1:

The plants look in really good shape. Nutrients have been added to the medium so I don't see any need for a cal/mag supplement at this stage :+1:

I do agree that the ph reading of 7.0 is way to high and Would like to see this more in the 5.8-6.2 range :ok_hand:

Apart from that plants look to be off to a nice start and looking good.

Nice to see that the diary is getting some attention and nice to see help and advice being offered :pray:

All the best :v:

Best of luck on your venture into cannabis cultivation. It becomes an addiction in itself.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions as there are a lot of seasoned growers on this site. I am currently growing 2 Royal :crown: Gorilla’s :gorilla:, and 1 Gorilla :gorilla: Bomb :bomb:, and 2 Velvet Bud in my garden at the moment that are 35 days into Veg. I just hacked them up starting to do a modified manifold which will extend my Veg by a week or two. I post bi weekly videos to my YouTube Channel. Check it out if you get a chance:
