Target Vapor Pressure Deficit (VPD): 1.0kPa

This girl has some really wide leaves. I worry that the larger ones are shading out the lower part of the plant, but besides my planned fimming I don’t want to mess around with training or defoliation shock too much this time around due to time constraints. Still though, she is a really strong and robust grower. She grew 5” this week and had a lot of mass growth in the leaves and stem, even during the fimming, and since I’m still a noob, I’m pretty happy about that.

Sorry about the lighting, I have to turn off my LEDs and use a shop drop light because I’m not really sure what type of lighting to use to take better pictures (see my Grow Question).

The Autopots are doing their job. It is nice being able to take time off of watering to focus on other things.

I fimmed early on in the week. The recovery is going well, and there is more bushy-ness now.

Unfortunately, unless I figure out ways to make my schedule at the end of this summer more accomodating for this round of growing, this might be my last week of veg. I might be ok though if we get one more really good week of recovery after this fim.

RECAP OF THE GROW SO FAR:

Target VPD for the week 1-2 seedling cycle was 0.7kPa.
Target VPD for the week 3+ veg cycle is 1.0kPa.

I am using KIS Organics Water Only Soil with Biochar. This is a living organic compost soil that theoretically should be enough nutrients for the plant through the whole grow. The Nutrient Pack will be used on weeks 4 (was going to be weeks 4 & 6, but don’t need to now with the shorter veg cycle), Recharge will only be used if growth slows down too much, and Mammoth P will be used one week before and during flowering (was going to be 2 weeks before, but couldn’t also because of the shorter veg cycle).

The Autopot is a bottom watering unit that uses a float system to turn the water flow on and off, and I won’t need to manually water the plant, but you do need to top-water for the first 7-10 days until the roots get low enough to reach the Autopot tub. Also the supplements mentioned above need to be top-watered on because you cannot run organic supplements through the Autopot lines.

Every light cycle stage is/will be programmed with a sunrise and sunset mode where the light intensity starts low and increases, peaks, and then gradually dims before shut off. During week 1 and 2 I ran with a lower intensity and bluer color, and the actual watt average during the light cycle was only at 238W. For week 3+ I changed my light to autorun mode, which is a stronger intensity but still has more blue during the light cycle, and the average light wattage in this cycle is 451W. Autorun mode is the Kind LED K5 XL1000’s default factory setting for a standard sunrise to sunset veg cycle.

I really like the Pulse One monitor. It really helps me to keep everything dialed in at all times. The graphing feature is a really great addition because I can now see how bad the environment of the tent would have been without some fine tuning.

Grow Questions
DoctorPhilgood week 3 started grow question 3 days ago
LED lighting makes badly colored pictures. Used to take my pots out of the tent, but my new watering system makes that a mess. My shop drop-light makes the leaves a weird light green. What type of lighting do you use for in-tent shots? Best answer to a cheap light but great pics.

Your photos look good as far as I can see. I used to switch my red blue led off for photos and hung in a standard energy saving light with 4000k to take photos.

For pictures taking I use clamp lights with UVB bulbs, or white LEDs. Sometimes LEDs show weird lines.

When I could see your diary title ‘Holy Agnostic...’ I hoped the next word would be Batman.

@growdoctordc, haha! That's funny. Holy kush, Batman!

Thanks, I'll definitely ponder this. Although, you might want to make it a direct reply to the grow question if you want me to consider it for the "best answer". If you don't care though, I really appreciate the advice anyway! :grin:

You can just tuck the leafs,so that the tops are exposed,I always do it like that.
