Plenty of photos this round. My plants all hit 13 inches this week and I decided it was time for some LST - they're back down to 6 inches now. I got a little overzealous with the Blue Dream and accidentally split the stem slightly, but with some tape and time it seems to have recovered and thickend around the damage. Less watering was required this week, but humidity and smell may becoming an issue - my exhaust fan and filter could be moving in very soon. This is only my second experience with LST. In theory I'm trying to grow them like a vine around the planter edges, but we'll see what develops... as long as I end up with a low, thick canopy I'm happy given that I'm using flourescents. It's going to be awhile before 12/12. As I mentioned at the start of the diary, this is a low-tech (humble) grow, I'm not in a race and I certainly won't be setting any efficiency records. If anyone has any LST pattern suggestions, please let me know?!

Grow Questions
Bike4CannaBits week 3 started grow question 4 weeks ago
Slow growth and yellowing of older leaves in my seedlings: I think Premier ProMix BX isn't airy enough and holds onto water too long for seedlings (5 days between watering). Can an experienced soil grower confirm this and recommend a better store-bought seedling starting mix?

Did you make a few holes at the bottom of the cup? if not, go ahead and do it, it will help drain the excess of water. When watering, only do it when the cup feels really light. Also, 5 days is ok between watering. What you need to do is raise the temperatures above 23°C (73°F), then you will see better growth, below that threshold, the growth slows down to a crawl.
Bike4CannaBits week 5 started grow question 3 weeks ago
I'm about to transplant into larger containers with soilless mix, my plants are in early vegetative stage and growth is now accelerating. Should I use full strength or a lighter nutrient solution on their first transplant watering?

Go full strength. I grow in coco and other than when they are seedlings just starting I typically use full strength nutes. That other guy mentioned salt build up, that's generally only a problem in soilless mediums if you aren't watering until you get runoff. I typically go for 30% run runoff of the volume I'm watering with. The runoff makes sure that the old nutes are flushed out and replaced with new nutes. Like he said it is not as important with organic due to organics not coming in salt form, but if any of your nutes are inorganic just be sure to flush. I would also use real growers recharge or great white myco if you have any to help it recover from the transplant shock faster.
