    Flowers maturing early?

    Sealed room with controlled CO2. Other strains doing fine. I can't rule out HPLVD and just read it can be transferred through seed. Hope it's just genetics. Mudballs, thanks. I think I will just toss the beans. Boatguy, no growth in almost 3 weeks now and since the pics the buds have fully...

    Flowers maturing early?

    Well, these are hardly worth harvesting for flower. And Skywalker usually has very good yield. I'm leaning towards bad genetics but I'm wondering, I got several of these beans and I don't know whether it's worth trying with another one? I'm switching to a different strain for the moment but I...

    Flowers maturing early?

    It's far enough along to see it's obvious done growing and we'll into the ripening process.

    Flowers maturing early?

    So someone who has a few cuttings from the same mom is reporting the same thing has happened. I'm guessing it's just bad genetics. I asked a guy at the grow shop if he was familiar. He said not personally but heard there was a virus going around in California that halted growth. My beans are...

    Flowers maturing early?

    It's a strain I've worked with before (Skywalker), but a different seed. It's also happened with Blueberry cookies. I don't know how pics will help at this stage. I can take some pics tomorrow evening though. They're in week 5. By eye I can't tell the buds are any bigger than a week ago and...

    Flowers maturing early?

    I had this happen once years ago, then a few months back and now it's happening again. At around 4 weeks when the buds are popcorn size I'll notice a few red hairs. A few days later it's obvious they're maturing and not gaining any more size. Between week 5 and 6 they're ready for harvest. So...

    Cannabis Daily Light Integral

    After over two years I asked the guy and he says the 1120w LED array outperforms what he was getting from the 2x 600w HIDs. He also mentioned that it lowers the cooling cost a notable amount. I would say this is because the LEDs radiate heat up and the convection system changes the average temp...

    A solid general-use timer

    The Nearpow timer, if it malfunctioned while in on mode would it be stuck on or would the circuit break? I'm looking to upgrade my timers from mechanical. What I don't like besides the lack of accuracy is that if the mechanical timer breaks while on it's permanently on and can ruin a crop. So...

    So I have this one plant... (PH question)

    Almost everything is the same. Only differences, the plant in question is single so 1 grow bucket and 1 rez while the other location is 2 plants so 2 grow buckets, one rez. The lights are both LED, same emitters, roughly same wattage per square foot. According to the chart it's...

    So I have this one plant... (PH question)

    MK Ultra. It needs a ton of PH down to keep it in the right range. I'm talking +20ccs a day in 7 gallons of solution. If I only adjust once per day it will get up to 6.9. I have same plants from same mother in a different location and no notable PH issues. The plant in question looks healthy, no...

    Is it worth building your own LED? (Smaller grow)

    LED components can last years. I think building is a no brainer but the caveat is, do you mind or want to do the research, planning, building? For some it's more trouble than it's worth. For some it's fun. But there are savings down the road. Heat sinks last forever basically so if you go COB...

    The art of cloning

    At the time they were above the water, but I've since started using micro pumps along with the air stone and get better results. I run them in a mild bleach and soap solution overnight to clean them. They can be disassembled which is nice. It turns out in a water based system the stems need to...

    Air layering - an easy peasy means of asexual reproduction

    The instructions suggest both, or rather the first method suggests one vertical cut held open with a toothpick while the second method suggests removing the outer layer completely so the stem can't transport downward. I'm thinking it would be good to have a spare plant set aside to experiment on...

    Air layering - an easy peasy means of asexual reproduction

    Are there any potential contamination issues with this technique?

    Fertilizer Combo for better PH control

    Thought I would drop this tidbit of wisdom here. Until recently I always used Maxigro/Bloom for hydro. I had compared it with other brands years ago and didn't see much difference if any and Maxi series is cheaper. Only thing is, no PH buffers and in a 24 hour period the PH can go from 5.8 to...
