Week 2 crawling along. Had my first unwanted visitors. Saw a couple of fungus gnats on the surface of the pots. I covered the seedlings with plastic cups, sprayed the soil/ pot surface with insecticidal soap mix and sprinkled a bit of diatomaceous earth on the surface of the soil to see if that takes care of them. Day 10 watered with some Voodoo juice beneficial bacteria w/ Carboload to help the bacteria feed a bit and do their thing by breaking down the organic soil amendments to a form more usable to the roots and a touch of B-52 into the same mix. I suspect the one seedling that's lighter green might be looking for a bit of nitrogen I'll see if she/they react well to it. Used a turkey baster to lightly water an 6-8 inch circle around the seed starter mix letting capillary action pull the moisture in toward the seedlings. Continued dropping light gradually up to PAR reading of 250- 350 umoles at the end of week 2.

Grow Questions
Philindicus week 3 started grow question 11 months ago
About those fungus gnats, I definately won't be buying bags soil from the same distributor next time. Since this pest is something most growers wind up with on occasion so do you try to add preventatives to your soil mix every time or take some other steps?

What I will do is any time is see one first thing I will do is either make a cinnamon tea or even put a little cinnamon powder on the top soil they hate the smell and won't go in an lay larvae. It doesn't kill the adult so sticky traps are great. and to make the cinnamon tea you just take any where from 2-4 tbs of cinnamon powder and add it to hot/boiled water the water needs to be pretty hot. Add powder to hot water in a jug you can shake it up in then after shaking let sit and cool for 12-24 hrs then strain and you are left with a cinnamon smelling "Tea" you can spay it on the Tent, plants, outside tent pretty much anywhere you want and it smell likes cinnamon an deters them from going near there.:+1: If they are really bad and already in the soil then Diotamacious Earth works great to kill anything trying to come up or into the soil it cuts them up as they try. Also another good easy preventative is to have some companion plants that have insecticide like properties like basil a lot of pest hate the smell of it so they stay away there is a bunch that can help look into it it pretty neat:blush: Happy growing!!

Does anyone out there feeling the same way I do about too much nitrogen in nutes during bloom causing buds to be too leafy and with a 8-9 week auto flower would week 6 or week 7 be better to give them a bit of extra P/K yet leave enough time for a 10-14 day flush?

I would add it on week 6 and stop it on the end of week 8 to have 2 weeks of pk boost for the plant. I agreed that too much nitrogen can lead to leafy plants but I also observed that phenomenon when I was using a 6-6-6 Npk nutrient , the plants ended up more leafy and green than usual , the taste was affected by too much chlorophyll
