    hey paperfetti ppp is Pure power plant from nirvana and i have not had trouble with it before until this plant it wasnt the plant tho ppp is very nice smoke and grows excellent with Sog i really recommend it i have tried about 9 or nirvanas seed types and my favorits would have to be

    1. K-2
    2. ppp
    3. big bud
    4. white widow

    those are bomb ass strains and k-2, ppp, and white widow are all very strong smokes
    they have a nice high i am still playin with big bud i like it cause it is very healthy and resilient plant ....also i had a Northern lights from nirvana and i grew it with soil and hydro lol i thought maybe it would have burned it but it was just right and seriously to date has been the most i ever got off a plant 2 oz of it and it was premium smoke also that northern lights strain smells like a friggin rose until it is chopped down and cured then the smell all of a sudden comes on and it has great smell after cured very nose catching stuff ...i only got one of the 10 to be female and live but it did that 2 oz thing ...so i cant really say much about it cause i dont have a couple grows of that under my belt

    if you want a nice producer for sog i say ppp is very nice choice
    if you want a nice little christmas tree type plant i say get k-2
    and if you want a no smell plant get Northern lights

    i have high hopes for northern lights tho and it might start being a staple strain around my grow here is a pic of my bloom room if you interested

    oh and i found out that my water is really bad quality and i will have more info on aerocloning the ppp once i try distilled water instead of water out of sink

    overall ppp is one of my favorites

    also tryed snow white , from nirvana it is very nice and can produce alot of weight but it does take a good week or two longer to bloom which is not acceptable for my setup

    also that is a cool little grow box you made hmm i will show setup on next reply i forgot i was doing the post quick reply thing and i dont know how to put a pic on this way

    Doubt Al B. will see this, I might just PM you.

    We were talking about the pH truncheon from bluelab about a month or so ago, I think it hadn't come out yet.

    Anyway, I was searching for an electrode replacement and found that the PH truncheon is out and available. Just a heads up.

    Can you answer this one Mr. ABF

    When taking clones to determine the sex of a new strain that was put down, two of the four started bleeding purple sap, the other two had normal looking clear colored sap. All four get the same nute mix and are the same age. There was two clones taken from each plant to use for determining sex.

    Have you ever seen purple colored sap?
    Even if you have never seen it do you know what causes it?
    Is it a good, bad, or indifferent thing to see/have?

    Could you tell us the nutes you are using along with any additives?

    Purple sap, never seen it.:?

    Al B. I know you can answer me this one easily-

    Where do you get your replacement electrodes for your Eutech pH pro series 2?

    I've been searching, and can't find on in the states, my hydro store said they'd sell me their used on for 65 bucks I told them they're crazy, it's like 35 bucks if I can find it. I ran a search and I think you and me are the only ones that use the Eutech meter. Thanks.

    I just mean that as the ducting enters the tent (horizontal), it turns sharply 90 degrees down (vertical) and then makes another 90 degree turn into the cool tube (horizontal again)...

    The shape created by the consecutive turns is commonly referred to as an "S Turn"... and since it all happens inside of the tent.... an "S" turn inside... it seemed logical when I wrote it... sorry...

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers...

    Is that a 4 inch hooked to a 6 inch tube? How well does it work? And do you prefer the solid ducting over the more flexible kind? Id imagine it would have a lower coefficient of resistance but I was worried it wouldn't fit well when the light got raised in my setup.

    I am starting to feel uneasy answering questions in Al's thread...

    I hope he doesn't get mad at me...

    Yup 6" cool tube with an adapter to the 4" duct...

    With a 170 CFM fan, I can have 600 watts 10" from my babies, without heat issues...

    With the tent fully closed, high temp at "plant top" level has been 78F... and I don't even have the right exhaust fan in yet.... 265 CFM will replace the 80CFM exhaust in a few days...

    It is not solid, it is semi-rigid... it still stretches and bends like the "foil" type ducting... just not quite like a slinky...lol...

    I chose it because it will hold it's shape, as opposed to drooping between support points..

    Don't know your set up, but if you can use the thin foil/spring type ducting, you can use this stuff... takes no more room... maybe a slightly bigger 180 deggree turn radius... but no diff. on 90* turns...

    Hope this helps...

    Gypsy...:bigjoint:

    Ps. I hope you guys know that I am just a newb... asking me questions is a very tricky thing... as I don't know very much about anything at all... so... uh ... Al.. set them straight, will ya.... lol....:lol:

    Sorry Al.... no disrespect intended... you can have your thread back...lol....

    and this is what I meant by no drooping...

    I can even make a "snorkel" to gather AC air....:mrgreen:

    damn i want mines exactly like that..can u tell me what u have as far as the parts connected to tube,so i know what to ask for when i go to home depot..like a list i can write down..if too much i understand...i took cuttings from a plant i had outside and tried to put 600 watt hps in a homebox S (yes "s" meaning small lol)and it was on fire in there..i dont have ducts running like you do,so i know i could have gotten it cooler,but it didnt seem like i was going to be able to get it where i need it to be do to box being so small..so needless to say my cuttings died and this is all i have left..pic 2 is where the hps will be once i switch plants that are in bubbler to 12/12..which will be hopefully in a week..but i dont know what to do with plant that was outside getting cold in the meantime
    thanx a milli

    3 part GH with 35% H2O2 thats it.
    I dont think that has anything to do with it, because these two were the only two that have ever done it.

    Dear uncle Al, please take a moment out of your busy day to read this thread and school the LED junkies within as to the ineffective and unproven nature of LEDs. If you could find the time it would be greatly appreciated, it seems i am not successful enough of an HID grower to make the point and i was hoping someone with a bit of clout could step in and set these xmas tree light gardeners straight.
    Thanks bundles!
