    20170812_154204.jpg 20170812_154144.jpg 20170812_154138.jpg trimmed up the under growth a little today. Next time I say I want to SCRoG. Remind me to get 2 inch scrog mesh. Not 1 inch steel mesh. And trim up before you slot that beech up.

    Also my hands are still sticky from trimming old dead larf and shoots that were getting little to no light.

    The manual ones with the push in pins dont seem to work to well.

    You have two options, Buy a dedicated Hydro timer from a hydro shop. A proper Heavy duty one.
    The second option is to get an electronic timer. But you need to make sure its rated for the draw of the light.
    Proper Hydro ballast timer is of cause the better option.

    In the states you can even get one that when the power goes out it sets a timer for say 20 mins so that if the power goes out and back on again whithin a short time frame the ballast isnt trying to strike a hot bulb.

    You too eh? I just had one of my new ones crap out a couple days ago. Had an old one do the same a while back. They don't seem to last very long.

    I'm looking at some of those digital timers. But I'm not sure what's classed as junk. And what's decent price.

    Found this on ebay though. Screenshot_2017-08-13-11-41-44.jpg

    Rethreaded though the mesh. Hopefully the last time I do that. Its a bit rough on the young buds. I saw a few browned pistils. She's otherwise okay.

    Flush it for a few days with just water see if that sorts it could be going over board with nutes to less is more.

    Looks pretty good to me going off that my leafs always curl up a lil nothing to worry about mate

    The canoeing seem to be less. I do as suggested by JZS and keep an eye on the outside coloring of those leaves..You may have a problem developing there,

    Just a quick note on the application rates of nutes in general. The suggested ratios are normally for a 1000w light. So its wise to start off at 1/2 nutes and run that for awhile and increase if needed.
