Week 14 was by far the toughest week of the grow so far. Hurricane Irma put me out of power for 3 days and as anyone knows 24 hrs with no power in dwc usually means a lost crop. Seeing as the plants would drown with no air. To buy time I took a battery powered aerator and rotated it between the plants. This was a task in itself because I only had two working battery powered bubblers and I currently have 7 plants in dwc, the 3 in this diary and 4 more in veg. For this I rotated the bubblers every few hours between the plants so everyone got a turn. They just had to deal with no light. This process lasted roughly a day and a half and it sucked. Later in the evening I had a relative call and say they got power back pretty quick and I could borrow their generator After I got off the phone with them I dropped what I was doing and immediately drove to pick it up.

Once I got the generator going the first thing I plugged in ( even before my fridge with my food) where the aerators, after that I plugged in the fridge,carbon filter,dehumidifier and the light in the flower tent and at this point I new I didn't have much power left. The generator wouldn't power the tents 8000btu window unit but it would power a small 5000btu window unit I have in the next room. Not wanting to sleep in 90 degree rooms at night I came up with the plan to just leave the tents open drag a air mattress in the room and crank the little window unit as low as it would go and we all seemed to be alright lol. That lasted a day and a half and then power was restored. Hurricane Irma defiantly set me back a few days but everything else seems to be good considering.

Other than Irma my only issue seems to be the chronic. She's got a cal mag deficiency or something going on. I upped the cal mag per gal so we'll see. The borderliner and widow are really stacking on while the chronic just seems to be swelling if that makes sense. However the smell from the chronic is amazing it's very strong.

I hope everyone else is doing well and I apologize for the delayed weekly update but I've had a lot going on. If anyone has any suggestions on what might be the issue with the chronic I'd love to hear it.

Thanks and have a good one.
