So, the plant is in full bloom. Now I feed it following the scheme:
Watering once in 2-3 days with 500-700ml. The first time it's watering with fertilizers (Etisso+Micra). I give a compote for the blossom. The second time it's a solution of liquid vermicompost, the third time it's pure water. Sometimes I replace Etisso with a mixture of calcium nitrate and monophosphate. There are no troubles occurred – cones grow well, the central cola is great, and a light chocolate smell is in the air :smile:
I got rid of the problem – curving lower leaves. Maybe it was related to the bad PH (last time I used haydite and fluid tight pots).
As for the lightning I’ve replaced all the cold ESLs with warm ones of 55 and 30W. Now the plant enjoys the light of a 250W sodium lamp and 2x55W and 2x30W ESLs. The distance from the lamps is about 10-15cm. The temperature is 2-29 degrees.
In my opinion, the cones need about 3-4 weeks: 2 weeks for growth and 1-2 weeks to get ready – to get filled and become firm.
See you soon! :blush:
