Just to bring this post to a close...



Final words:

  So, upon my HPS light dying as the pistils turned orange I had to unfortunately allow for my plant to take a week into darkness before it was even ripe, this undoubtable stopped production and upon execution & trimming of the plant I discovered it had grown male flowers.  No seeds are found, so I had averted that problem all together;  I am currently curing in mason jars w/ some orange slices.  Will have to cure a long time to get rid of that premature taste, it gives a good stone though from what i had smoked after a 'quick dry'. 

  The plant had suffered a little until the end of its days, I had since just watched the pH to allow the plant to progress, it stayed at a point and did not progress worse so I figure it would had only been the N def. you see once in a while as every other part of the plant was healthy minus a few fan leaves yellowing & dying.

  For a small plant, i probably scored a fat quarter or more of nugs, which is about or a little more than the $$$ i invested in this project (minus the lamp i had from before) so I figure I broke even considering all the losses I did manage to have in this grow.



  I have since given a lot of thought to the setup I encompassed this grow log around and had come to a defining change that I will implement with my next round of grows.  I am going to refrain from using rock wool this time around, and will replace with the peat pellets straight into hydroton.  I will also plant them farther down into the cups to allow the roots to grow at a faster rate, and also supplying a root+ complex -  Also will probably mix a small amount of verm + peat layer to add for moisture control on the initial transplant.

  I feel the importance of a TDS meter with this log, I feel that was the only error I provided myself was the lack of exact control on this grow.  I guess I have control issues, LOL.  W/o the proper understanding of the dissolved solids & salt content and a lack also of a hygrometer (humidity meter).  I believe the resin output is incredibly enhanced with proper conditions, my closet being drier I have come with little resin on the buds but also it was somewhat premature... still, the buds were maybe only a few days early if anything and I dont feel Resin would have impacted that greatly in such a short time at least not from my experiences...

 
  I have since also built a monkey screen for the plants, so that the light is reflected as much as possible.  This was done with 6 sides.  I am going to attach mylar to this once I purchase a roll, and this will increase my yield capability as well.


  So, i was surfing 1000bulbs.com; and if you hadnt seen that site yet, you really should.  The deals on lights is incredible, if your on a budget a $8 400w HPS bulbs, ballasts for $70 and $40 MH to HPS conversion bulb; so you dont even have to buy a separate ballast or setup.... l337 shit man...

  Anyway, i had been very busy and I am sorry that this log had died as it had, I meant for it to be stream lined with updates every few days.
 

  ....


  I have begun the germination process today on my White Widow seeds... :smile:

It sounds like you need to get your priorities in order man.  Grow log > all.  lol.

But seriously, I think a tds/ec meter will really help ya out.  I couldn't imagine trying to estimate nute concentration, but i haven't completed a single grow yet.  Good luck with your future grows!

Go for outdoor, grow indoor till early spring, then move outdoor for the whole season... 1kg plant here we come.

Current Grow, backyard outdoor.

Is the bloom nutrient solution you are using made by agricultural organics, they are referred to as the "Yellow bottles". I heard a lot of good reviews about them. ??

Any help would be appreciated.

Toad hasn't posted since march.  I wish he'd come back too.  I don't know the answer to your question.
