Growth exploding with multiple drips :)
Will have to do some maintenance soon. First time using these nets.. Learning as the going get's gotten. Any helpful advice is appreciated, thanks!

Added a t spiltter to the open end lines for wider feed distribution. May revert back to open ends... testing the waters, as they say.
:peace:

It's hot in the tent. 94°f & ~46% humidity.
Exhaust fan maxed out on the controller 67.

Pai gow has been the only plants to take their time recovering (limp leaf then chlorosis) but have since bounced back.

Gold star x snow lotus f2 has leaf discoloration, like what tobacco masaic virus looks like. It appeared on the 2nd or 3rd leaflets(from seed) and has appeared growing out in clone.

Removed the gs x sl.. Compared to all other plants, buds were whispy and far behind.
Will try another seed some time in the future.
For now, focusing energy on plants that seem to be healthy.

Very simple working with jacks hydro 5-12-26, calcium-nitrate, epsom and mkp; using a hydro nutrients calculator to get (what I think) is a balanced raito of elemental ppms and a gram scale to weigh minerals.

Each plant's growth seems to be positively affected by multiple drips throughout the day and one at night.

Meatbreath x (MM f5) was supercropped, it had grown a few inches away from the light. Possibly the same fate for avg x wg cross in the back, stretchy for sure.

The current drip cycle is keeping pots wet with no waste at all. Once a week will add 1l mikrobs and yucca brew to pots. It seems to dry the coco quicker than normal.. So, the next day adding 2l nutrient water(& photo+) to rehydrate substrate and create some waste.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a good week.

Be well & stay hydrated ~ :peace: :blsmoke:

Looks dynamite! Hope the stretch is over for you. How much room between your tops and those nice LEDs?
Definitely hoping the stretch is over.. Soon, I think. Tops are about 6-8" from the lights (80%). Some may be closer. Probably going to be supercropping soon :leaf:

Thanks for stoppin by! :blsmoke::peace:

After wrestling with the tent this morning..
20210906_085210.jpg
Was able to raise the lights. Some plants were starting to get bleached tips with how close they were to the fixtures. Also, got 2 (of 4) drivers out of the tent.

Had at least one casualty..
20210906_081126.jpg

Repaired with grafting tape..
20210906_081416.jpg

Hoping the distance is enough til harvest.. If plants need more room, thinking either the bricks under pots will be removed or will try to figure another way to get fixtures higher.20210906_085220.jpg

Raised lights again. Will have to do til harvest.

Planning to move carbon filter out of the way to the corner. It's casting shadow on the main meatbreath cola.
Bars are looking better n better each day.. even light spread and heat reduction are some things in mind.

Thanks for stopping by! May your day be filled with clarity and your bowls/joints ~ fine herb! :leaf::peace:

You might want to dim your boards a bit. There’s lots of power in them and you’re close to the canopy. You said there is some bleaching already, right? I ran 960 watts of leds in my signature grow and it was a 6 by 10 space and I had some bleaching too. Are all of your plants for seed? You shouldn’t have to hit them with as much light if they’re for seeds.

After seeing bleached tips, lights were definitely raised. Only have so much room in the tent though.. perhaps dimming may be necessary.
Checked out your journal ~ Beautiful plants! How far were your lights from the canopy?

3 lower branches of 3 plants were pollinated. The pic is MC, about 6 days old. :weed:

First time using Jacks ~ enjoying how easy it is to mix and plants seem to like it as well. How did the flowers taste/smell using jacks? Thanks for your input @MustGro!! :peace::blsmoke:

My lights were 24-26 inches from the canopy but the buds were closer, maybe 18 inches. I should have dimmed them, there’s a little bleaching in the buds. Buds taste/smell great on the Jack’s. I think they’re cleaner than when I grew with GH nutes too, nice white ash.

Some defoiliation has taken place, but not much indeed!

Turned lights down from 80-100% to 60-70% ~ brought temps down from 96°f to 88°f, hah! Good lookin out @MustGro.
It should have been common sense to avoid frying them in that heat but at the same time~was eager to get as much light to them as possible..

Photone app currently reads ~400 ppfd on lower bud sites, ~250 near canopy and ~1000 directly under lights. Definitely switching over to bars by the end of the year, if not next cycle.

Thanks for stopping by ~ :blsmoke::peace:
