    Just started back up again 10/21/14

    (1) 600w Ushio powered by Phantom
    (1) 324w T5HO

    Everything is Day 22 from seed as I had to start new after moving. I have another 12x10 room across the hall I plan to use as a veg room. Adding another 600w lights with 6 per light, unless its too crowded then i'll have to add another 600w. Not sure yet. I have the space for 3 lights though. I will be keeping just the lone T5HO and cycling new plants in monthly as they grow.

    Thanks...the Blue OG and Dinachem are looking the best. I topped them on Day 21.

    They were all on .6EC or around 320ppm (.5 scale) which may have beem too much for the MKage and Super Silver.

    Dinachem is at .8EC now and I may push Blue OG to that feed as well.

    Running Botanicare Silica Blast 5ml/gal. Magi cal 1ml/gal and foliage pro by dynagro at 2ml/gal. 3ml for the Dinachem.

    PH keeps drifting from 6.0-5.6 over the course of 48 hours. Wondering why this PH dropping keeps happening. I used to always get a raise, now for like the past year a drop. Thinking it may be the nutes as I just switched back to DG and didn't get it with Ionic.

    MKage RIP

    Dinachem - Had an issue with mag on all the fan leaves(PH meter was off) - had to chop em. Still have odd spotting that isn't progressing, possible calcium from when meter was off, will monitor.

    Clones taken Saturday, all but one are rooted, seems all the Dinachem took the longest to root.
    Blue sleeves are Dinachem, Greens are Blue OG - Going to take some off super silver since she turned around.

    Clones are about 2.5 weeks old, aside from a super silver which is the center blue sleeve(now a green sleeve) because I broke a clone in half accidentally while trying to prune the dead shit off. Only clone i've killed with the bubble aero.

    It's crazy to see how much things have developed, you don't appreciate it when you see them everyday, but when you look at pictures, DAMNNN.

    Girls are drinking about 1/2 gal a day. Switched nutes Friday to Ionic Bloom. Added Ionic Boost around Sunday, the start of week 3.

    Cut my feed back a touch and plants seem to be liking it, PH goes from 5.8-6.0 daily. Starting at 5.5PH now that I know im getting a drift upwards for the past week. Feeding 1.2EC around 600-650PPM (500 scale).

    Question...even though no one reads this...these roots in the cloner, particularly on the two bigs ones, those exploded so fast. What do you do with this sized root mass during transplant?

    Im used to transplanting with less of a root mass, say the size of the other clones in the picture.

    I need some controls. Whats good out there? My humidity in the veg/clone tent is like 85% lol. The room gets up to around 60% was the highest i've seen it get up to. I want to have a controller for the tent to turn on a fan when the humidity or temperature reaches a certain point. Then I want to have another for inside the room that turns on the light fan if it gets to warm or an exhaust fan if the room gets too humid.

    I want to be able to set parameters like turn off at 50% RH or 70F. Turn on at 80F or 60% RH.

    Want individual controls, no all in one unit.

    Hey first, I've just buried roots much longer than that in whatever they're going into.
    coco seems easiest on them to me. but use whatever.

    Super Silver is packing on A TON of weight. The tops on the bottom most branches have big nugs as well.

    The main top is like 8 inches long and probably 3 inches in diameter, seems mostly tight, but definitely the fluffier of the strains I have going. Supposed to be a 70 day strain, not even half way in and I got some serious colas on my hands.

    I ended up picking up some crates today to put under the Blue OG and Dinachem as the Super Silver seems to have finally stopped growing vertically. Considering it came in about 12 inches lower than the others it sure got leggy. Dinachem didn't even double in size. Blue OG doubled. I'd say Super Silver has tripled.

    Yeah I probably should have just used thumbnails. There was a way to make them large size, but not full size with the old forum style. You had to like insert as thumbnail then double click the picture and a entry menu would come up with options on picture size.

    Were those seedlings on the right started right in the pucks? Or were they transplanted? I want to try starting seeds in the pucks for an aero setup.

    Yeah. Use the paper towel method and put the seed right at the top of the neoprene collar and snake the root down. They are stretching too much since the light is way above as im using it for veg also.
