Girls have now gone into 2nd week of flowering and the first little pistils are starting to form.
I defoiliated just after the last update 5 days ago, this was my first time but all advice was be brutal, so I was.
Female Seeds Pure Ak seems like a really tough strain becuase it produced lovley growth in such a short time despite the defoliation.
Defoilation has helped lower my humidity also which now sits at a nice 52%
Added a fan controller as my exhaust fan sounded like a helicopter taking off. At full pelt it was drawing about 55w but now half that.
Cleaned the res and started using hydro bloom today. Thes
nutes just work perfectly with my water ph so I dont have to adjust after adding the nutes.
I am currently keeping the ppm at 900 just becuase they are growing really nice at this level.
Had a mini panic earlier as noticed the res had really dropped in the last 24 hours and I was worried about a leak with the auto pots. Everything was fine after checking, the girls must have really increased their water uptake. I have placed a marker for myself to see how much they are drinking over a 24 hour period and will update tomorrow.
Note to myself - You didnt use enough soil at the begining ( loosing root growth)
- You did not pot up to help root growth
- Pure AK likes nutes, do not under feed this strain next time.
