Week 4 - Added a cool mist humidifier I was struggling to keep the humidity above 40%. It wound up about 45% on average and 50% with the cabinet door closed. Did some LST work and my last foliage feeding. Plants were starting to bloom by the end of the week and beginning their stretch. Gave them a light feeding since this is the first time using this soil mix. Added a bit of Cal-Mag (4-0-0) early it adds a bit of extra nitrogen to the bloom nutes. This time I'm not going to wait until they start showing deficiencies about week 6. They were watered to the point of about 10% run off for the first time. I swung the main stems to the outside perimeter to try to keep the light intensity within a decent range. Plan to fire up the bloom light a few days into week 5. Fungus gnat update. I seem to have them under control. But not eliminated. The yellow sticky traps worked well the number stuck to them has dropped. The layer of sand helps because it dry out the surface quickly with the fan blowing. The bacteria must be doing their thing. I removed the plastic wrap from the pots. I have been adding a small amount of insecticidal soap and water solution to my drain pans and clean them out every other day seems to nail any trying to crawl in under the pots. The solution drys up pretty quickly. Also I added a small bowl of apple cider vinegar with a drop of soap it seems to help attract them to their demise. Hopefully I have minimized the amount of damage to the roots.

Grow Questions
Philindicus week 3 started grow question 2 years 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!!
Philindicus week 6 started grow question 1 year ago
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
