this is day three of the HPS light... adjusted pH to perfecto 6.0 today & reformulated the mixture with more big bloom & a heavy top water dose.  Tomorrow I am  letting it dry (THE ROCKWOOL) and then I will flush w/ pH adjusted water.  I feel happy to be able to offer pH balance to my plants.  I hope to see this leaf fringing to cease within the next two days as the plants adjust. 

I have added some STICKER/PENETRATOR & Big Bloom to a spray bottle to juice up the plants to get rid of the stress asap.  Plants an hour later have already perked up a lot.

after a closer examination, i think i may have good luck this time.  I think i may have only one male, but we will see.  I am thinking of moving up 12/12 as because these plant had progressed incredibly maturity wise switching under, or should I keep 24/0 and keep'em vegging???  I read that males can show even through 24/0 . . .

decisions decisions...  if i go into flowering now, i tink they will max out @ 3' tall.  Where i lack in height may come from bushiness, it has a lot of vegetative growth that may catch up in height and i am hoping the one I topped is a female.  I think it will be.  I am so far hoping 3/1 from the way the preflowers appear, but until im 1 1/2 weeks into 12/12 or till i can tell its a male (check everyday twice a day at this point) i will have some snipping todo.  Not looking to breed right now just get some homegrown weed!

I say flower them soon just because of space. It would be pretty cool if you took one and did a jogging technique and kept that one plant in veg for awhile. Keep us updated!

judging from the pre flowers i think so far a 50% sex rate!  two of the plants' preflower are very swollen and pointy. one has the damned little balls..... the other one i can't tell yet they arent profound.  I have to get some tiger bloom asap and change over the nutrient level  -  They are much much happier now and have begun to really grow.  Another week at this level and I will be very happy.  Last two days I've only top fed them ph-adjusted water, hoping to clean up any salt buildup that may be on the rockwool from weeks of nutrient abuse . . .

plants seem to get plenty of nutrients from the concoction below, a mixture of grow big, big bloom, fish oil & MagiCal.  Easing off on the nitrogen as my plants seem to got a little dark, so im flushing accordingly.

All in all so far so good, at least happy w/ a possible 2 / 4 ratio, both same plant type also.  Hoping for a third, it looks promising but the preflowers are not developed so I will wait it out, flower for two weeks and make the final discretion. 

Adding the HPS light has stretched these babies out, glad that I switched over.  I have seen very lengthy growth through the plant, some main stems are trying to come from the bottom.

The one I fear a male is the one that I Topped.

Good work! So you have already switched to flowering? Can you post some pictures of the difference between male plants and female plants in your bunch?

no not flowering but preflowering, its hard to tell the difference but there is a difference, but its always best to be sure.

by flowering, i think he's referring to a 12/12 light cycle.  You can really tell the difference in the light in those pictures.  I'd like to see some more too.  :P  Can you do macro's with your camera?

starting 12/12 today, keeping them small.  They are preflower'd up which is the only reason im flowering now.  I did wanna keep'em short i suppose!  Friday I am going to buy the bloom nutes and start changing the flavor of the nute mix. 


I love fox farm products, my plants are always so happy using them I think I may stick w/ Tiger Bloom & Big Bloom. Next grow is goin to be the professional grow, this is "god damn i need some weed and im broke so lets grow weed instead" idea.  I have been using big bloom + grow big recently + fish oil and the plants have been very happy.  I think the red light pushed them into maturity faster, even though there was 24/0. 

I am almost certain i have 2 for 2 male/female ratio, which I can deal with for now until I prove it.  I can see very strong differences between preflowers.
:vaped:

i'll take pictures tomorrow.


My biggest complaint, is one of the suspected females feeding roots still have not come out of the cup, and the size difference between the plants are noticeable.  So I feel i am forced to top feed until it happens, not sure why it hasn't as some of the plants root systems have become very advanced.  I think the next grow, i will use shorter cups to allow roots to grow into the water sooner.  I think this would dramatically improve things as once i had noticed feeder roots, the plants exploded in size.

Plus I think those first couple grows are just to get the basics down and learning from your own mistakes. I know that's how I was when I first started growing mushrooms

Look forward to seeing some pictures tomorrow

had a 2nd tub and change the top over, now in bloom nutes, i think it may be a bit high on the ppm meter, will be watching the plants to see reaction over the next two hours or so. 

day 2 in 12/12, still haven't seen defining female characteristics or the pistils but the bloom nutes should help that, waiting the first week.

One of the plants (a suspected female) has not created a complex rooting system into the tank yet.
Removed a confirmed male today.  I can spot these bastards out big time.



pH is 6.0 on the drop tests.

so I've taken out the last confirmed male, the other two are definately females from the difference of preflowers.  Very excited.  The male plant i just removed smelled lovely, almost tempted to smoke him! lol jk.

I am hoping even though this batch may be small that I can get resinated buds .

very nice. I think that will be my biggest problem when I start growing that being identifying the difference between my male plants and female plants

how many plants do you think a 400 watt HPS light be adequate for?

6 small ones or 4 good (3+ feet) tall. . .  I think 400w hps does 1.2m (meters) squared adequately.
