It wouldn't load the book for me.
GUess google screws up some times, I will see if I can sort it out some time. Busy with a steak braai over some Namibian camel thorn acacia coals.
Going to have some chips and mushroom sauce with it. Maybe a light cucumber and onion salad.
10 1/4 on and my buds are bigger in less time with more frost and less kilowatt hours. Did not quite expect to be this happy! Just do it!
Q for the 24 guys.
Does it take longer for the plant to react to 12/12 after being under light for so long?
Ive just switched from 24 to 12/12 and the stretch didnt seem to happen as fast as i thought it would.
When I ran a 24/0 veg it took several weeks for stretch to happen.
Thats some gold info right there. Ive never seen it mentioned before.
I'm interested in running 6/2 on my next veg round in a few weeks; won't be introducing it to the current veg crop.
Anecdotally at least I can attest to that "midday slump" kinda thing under full power cobs.
And besides, that extra lights-off period gives me an ideal window for my foliar treatments.
I can attest to the cob slump too. So this coming round i plan to set up a light cycle where i will rotate shutting down two light bars at a time for 45 mins or so... so the plants get a break from the intensity of direct light above them.
Interesting- this amounts to a day with scattered cloud cover.
Thats exactly what i was thinking.
Get my spray bottle out and i can make it rain too!
My current light schedule
Flower = (on/off)
13.5/10.5 for 1st week
13/11 for 2nd week
12.5/11.5 for 3rd week
12/12 for 4th week
11.5/12.5 for 5th week
11/13 for 6th week till harvest.
Running this setup since i started growing with my diy leds. Works like a charm to somewhat mimmick the days shortening. Plants seem to love it.
So then ehat are yourbplans for flower?
6 Hours on
6 hour off
repeated for a 24hr cycle?
I aint messing with the dark cycle in bloom, this is only for veg.
