Everything is going well, no complaints.

D37F
Plants look to have reached saturation levels with Ca. Might be able to rely mostly on the Ca that is in the Micro for the rest of the grow.

D38F
Swell is really in full swing, the smell is amazing as well. It has that tropical pungency of red paw paw but the aroma of mango. Very happy with their progress, hardly have to touch them.

D39F
Plants are filling out at a rapid pace. Completely happy with how they're going.

D40F
Calcium uptake is going back through the roof, have never seen the ppm drop so fast. Added 2 tsp of calcium nitrate and it was gone from the solution within an hour if not less....Pretty sure there's no Ca in my solution right now but will see how they girls respond to 160 ppm a day. Also the bulking is still in full swing. Now that I know it's happening I might put more of my attention on the veg stage of my next grow. I'm probably the laziest in veg. Make up one solution, top it up once and check ph once over three weeks than transplant and flip. Not even close to good. The New mother is going off too and has been more exciting than something I've seen a couple of times now.

Had a bit of fun with the lighting...hope you enjoy :)

D41F
Still not providing enough calcium. I add it as part of the main feed and it's gone within a couple of hours. Gonna give them a heavy dose next feed, hopefully the ppm will stay above 350 for longer than a couple of hours. Been a bit sloppy with keeping them in the dark. A few reveg leaves are showing up but shouldn't mess up anymore with that from here.

D42F
Back on top of everything, they look great for the first week of swell. Really excited to see how they look after another.

Grow Questions
Mospeada week 1 started grow question 2 years ago
Just found out I need sulphuric acid to dissolve Sulphate of Potash so it's water soluble (unless someone knows a better way?). Anyone know the formula for how much sulphuric acid I need and what the process is?

So far, what I've found is this. Usually, when metals react with certain dilute acids, they form their respective salts along with hydrogen gas and sometimes other by products.
In the case of potassium when it reacts with dilute sulphuric acid, the salt of potassium sulphate is formed in addition to hydrogen gas.

2K + H2SO4 = K2SO4 + H2

This is the reaction formula. So I guess I just need to research hydrogen and if it as a byproduct is anything to be concerned about.

Math check.
Making my own bloom booster, aiming for a 0-10-10 ratio. I use powders and know that 1 tsp = 5ml. If make up a 1 litre solution, to achieve 0-10-10 would that mean 980ml of water 2 tsp of mono-ammonium phosphate 2 tsp of potassium sulphate?

I'm using phosphoric acid to pH down but might switch to citric acid, I'm noticing the amino acids I use have been bringing the pH down bit by bit but I need something to lower the it after silica. I could switch to using a silica dioxide but I heard citric acid doesn't stay stable or gets eaten up or something; so it'll be good enough to keep my pH down as not to cloud my solution when I'm mixing it. Yeah the purple stems are a dead give away but the P deficiency happened in veg, I'm working it back up right now. In regards to the Yucca I use it for the Saponins it contains (wetting agents), it's an aim on this grow to have as little to no salt build up and the Saponins assist in this. I don't know how I can really determine it's effectiveness for that particular use. All I know is my solution is stable and I literally add a pinch so the bag I got will last me for years...if it doesn't go out of date before then. It's a bit hard to compare grows as hydro and soil are really different. Anyways, I'm going to attempt making the concentrate tomorrow. Good luck and happy growing :)

Brix Content
It's been quite difficult finding what range cannabis Brix can be. I just took my first reading with a simple refractometer. 6.5%. It doesn't seem very high but tomatoes are usually between 3.5-5.5. Has anyone done their own plants?

I'm using the Brix count to determine how effective the extra Calcium I'm giving the plants is. There are many flow on effects to increasing calcium uptake...one of them is increased Brix. Would love for someone to show there results so I at least have a basis for comparison.

Tomatoes are not even in the same family of plants as Cannabis plants.. People say tomatoes because they can look a like when younger.. This is where the "growing tomatoes" phrase comes from.. Your not growing tomatoes your growing Cannabis.
Jef79 answered grow question 2 years ago
Hello.. Hope you are well.. Very impressed with your work.. Well done n keep it up.. As to ur question.. All i know is the brix is a type of plant sugar that will help improve taste and unsure if it helps assimilation with other micro/macro's.. Im sure if ur saying tomato go between 3.3-5.5 id aim at low end on this grow then go higher end on nxt crop of gelato if possible then u'll know for sure of any difference in taste or oil production.. Hope all goes well n look forward to seeing ur end results.. Stay safe n gud luck on the research.. If i see anything related i will pass on info.. :+1::four_leaf_clover:

Are you running a Co2 tank or bags?

@Coughy, Can miss these comments sometimes....Yeah Co2 bags but I'll be switching to a burner for more control. They work well enough imo though.
