Before we get into week 10.
I have a exciting announcement! SWEET SEEDS got ahold of me and wants me to test 3 of there strains! I'll be testing Dark Devil, Red Poison, and Gorilla Girl XL. Each will have there own diaries. Depending on the number of seeds I get. Ill eather do a full tent of 1 strain. Or 3 runs with 3 all the stains togeather. They'll be started once i get them. (There already shipped out waiting for them to clear customs:crossed_fingers:)

She's definitely almost ready to flush. She has like 70% brown hairs and the trichomes are start to turn milky. No amber though. Im not sure if flushing after it starts turning amber is to late or not. Maybe someone can answer that for me. I dont want to be to early but I definitely don't wanna be to late.
6/7/2020
I'm definitely starting to flush just give her mollases, and some calmag for the next week and just water after that. Hopefully i started it soon enough.
Also I think im gonna give MegaCrop and Rechrage a go. Seems really good ive only heard great things. Well see.
6/8/2020
Sweet seeds came in ill be doing 4 runs of three of there strain with a 4th strain from a different breeder giving they all pop. Theyll get there own diary for each strain for each run. Probably not going to do a dad to day with those. And I have like 40-50 seeds in my fridge for the future. Anyone interested in what ill run next. Let me know.
6/9/2020
I gave her just some ph'd water shes starting to see little bits of amber trichs. Hopefully i can get her flushed no problem. I should have flushed before 2 days ago. Now I know what not to do.
6/10/2020
Just water shes getting trichomes like crazy! I'm gonna put up pictures to see if she's done or not. Week 10 in the books!

I have a mars hydro 2000tws.
My question is what hight should I have the light at seedling, veg, and flower stages. Right now its about 24" from the plants.

Shagrath answered grow question 11 months ago
24" is pretty safe distance for seedlings but im veg I think you want something like 18" and during flowering you might be able to go 12" also. Just lower the light gradually and see how the girls react to it. Just remember to put fans between the led and the canopy so you dont burn your girls when the lights are closer.

Help! Did I mess up my plants?
Hi,
I'm growing a fastbuds Zkittlez and a fastbuds G.G.

First thing you should learn to do is nothing. Dial back nutes, if dark or other observable problems. If you think there is a problem, the less you do the better until you know what it is. Only once you are certain should you act in any way that will impact your plant. Otherwise, you just as likely to throw kerosene on a dumpster fire.

Watering early depends a lot on pot size. If it is in an oversize pot for size of plant, try fertilizing where the roots are once a week, but rehydrate with pH'd water during the week as needed only. If soil or coco-like substrate, allow it to dry a bit before watering - less so for coco than soil. With soil, the top 1/2 to 1" should be dry before watering. Early on, you may want to water before 1" dries, but don't water everyday unless you are adding 10-15mL or something tiny.

The idea is for the nutrients not to build up while the plant lacks roots to suck it down. So, early on you don't need a weaker ppm or molarity, you just need to becareful of adding more when it isn't being used already. Rehydrating with ph-only or if you do feed make sure plenty runs out the bottom. That enusre the concentration does not skyrocket.

Small plant = small appetite. It doesn't mean it can't handle the same concentration, because it absolutely can, unless you are simply using too much regardless of plant size, or you are dumping more in while it is not being used up, which causes a continually rising concentration over time.

An ebb and flow of saturation is good for avoiding bad microbial growth in your substrate, too. If it is constantly moist, you will likely get some green algea on any perlite resting on top of soil, for example, or a much worse microbial problem.

Start gently lifting your pot to learn the weight of a saturated substrate and when it is ready for watering. A dry top layer is also a good indication you can water. Try to only water based on weight until you learn how the plant drinks. Soon, you'll be able to predict such things, but still be checking weight to verify.

If you ever see the plant wilt, you need to water a bit more per irrigation or less time between irrigations to avoid that wilt.

Relax. They probably aren't stunted unless you are seeing major growth issues -- if light is too close, the nodes and leaves will stack nearly on top of each other and look weird and toxicities are easy to see from leaf charts you can find. Seedlings need strong light from the get-go. Within 7 days it'll be 18-24" away or closer -- not sure on your lights. Heat is one concern. The other is too many photons for your plant. You'll see it cower and stop praying under conditions of too much light for too long.

Early on, seedlings don't always look the prettiest. If it is growing each day, slowly the first 2 weeks, then it is likely fine. Even if you see some discoloration or some imperfect leaves it is fine as long as it coincides with growth early on.

I have a seedling that's 1 week old. It has two sets of real leaves (not counting the tiny cotyledeons). I have another that is 14days old and it's third set of real leaves are now overlapping first set of real leaves and a new nodes is barely popping out. Growth nearly doubles each week and takes time to start rolling.

You likely only have to water every 2-3 days and upto 7 days in some cases, initially, but it depends on a lot of factors. Based on how most people are their first grow, you need to stay away as much as possible. Get over any OCDand the neurotic impusles that you feel. Ty to be a minimalist and add layers of sophistication as you learn. Walk before you run and learn better and avoid more mistakes. Be reactive, not proactive.. .you don't have the baselines yet to do so. Give it a couple grows before jumping the gun.

Get away from liquid nutes and any product with cartoon graphics on the label. Find a 2 or 3-part fertilizer, like jack's or general hydro i think has a very similar setup and similar price too. You want to provide what is neccessary with a complete set of nutrients, or you end up spending 10x more on additives that shouldn't be needed with a competent fertilizer brand.

e.g. you shouldn't need "cal-mag." Calcium and magnesium should already be in your fertilizer at an appropriate molarity. If it isn't, then it is crap fertilizer. Coco coir can require some prep to avoid cal-mag deficiences and k-toxicities, that's a special instance that is ameliorated by soaking in a cal-mag and non-potassium solution before using the coco. fertilize as normal after that and no problems will occur.

From what I can see they look fine, this can happen sometimes in new growth especially after switching to flower! Check out my diary I've just done the same. For the drooping it looks like they are thirsty your mean looks really dry! Hope this helps! Happy growing!

When I flush do i use sledgehammer then just water or do I do just water? Also do i use bambé or mollases threw the whole flushing process?
Also while I have your attention what do you guys think about watering with ice, or any other tricks for the last week(s)?

Experimentgreen answered grow question 9 months ago
Hey
I only use that sledgehammer maybe twice in a grow...unless i get buildup or problems. When you're ready to flush do 1 watering of sledgehammer and then all the days after just do plain water. Don't add bembe or molasses. I used molasses to the end of a grow and it definitely left an off taste to the buds, so even though it's all natural and what not you definitely want a few waterings that have nothing in them.:+1:
The ice water trick can work....but it's hit and miss..but if you can drop the humidity down low that's a good trick for trichromes. and run all your fans during the dark hours you might get it cold enough to help bring in some colors.

the_canna_scientist answered grow question 9 months ago
That monster looks ready to go! A week of flushing is generally okay, there is a whole section of thought that is against flushing and has pretty good data for it. I don't think it'd hurt if you flushed for another week based on your trichome pictures.

Experimentgreen answered grow question 8 months ago
Hey
Better to have it on the top on low, the hot air rises and you want to keep it reasonably cool in there. If you have a small vent open on the bottom that'll help also...even just partly open, just enough to pull some fresh air up through the buds and out the exhaust.
Happy harvesting
