I see the CFLs on the side, but the larger metal fixture holds, what? the larger style CFLs? Sorry, I don't know my lighting that well. Love the grow log!

It's a 125W "Warm 2700K" CFL in a reflector. The other smaller bulbs are very white 6500K bulbs so the plants are getting a very mixed spectrum of light.

Here are a couple of pictures of the tops as of yesterday

The Big Bang will receive its last dose of nutrients with the next watering, then I'll flush and harvest in the second week of february.

30.01.09 7 weeks of flowering
On the big bang the stems for some of the fan leaves have started to turn red and the water consumption is way down. If I were to judge ripeness from the pistils I'd cut it down now but green house says 8 to 9 weeks.



This has been happening a lot to the super silver haze. The lowest leafs are receiving no light and just curl up and fall off.
The branches higher up are looking good however:

Breaking news: My fan just fell down on the Big Bang, knocking two branches off (edit: the branches were from the 1st and 3rd internode, the smallest buds really). Thank god it missed the main cola! What impact does this have on the final harvest (other than the two missing branches i'm drying right now)? Will maturity be stunted so I will have to harvest later, or will the potency be lowered?

:frown: I don't think it will have any serious effect on the rest of the plant. No need to change your plan.

They are about done if I remember correctly so I don't believe anything will be affected.

4.01.09
This grow is heading towards great success imo. The wait has been long but harvest is just around the corner now, I think I'll give the Big Bang a week more, making flowering 8 and a half weeks.

The branches that broke off when the fan fell down yielded about 3 grams (huge error margin). Counting the remaining branches this plant will easily yield over an ounce. Some of the premature harvest I dried quickly and smoked (the high is really relaxing and stony), the other buds I'm drying slowly to see if I can do it properly. The "green" smell is still present after 4 days of drying (is this normal)? I was hoping the dried bud would smell like the bud/resin on the plant. It's kind of stinky, but in a good way. I have nothing to compare it to.


The Super Silver Haze is really catching up and today as I was tending the plants my hand rubbed up against the buds and it smells amazing! Really, beats all perfumes. And there is a plus to having a giant plant that would be taller than me if it wasn't tied down => more buds!


I am so happy  :jointsmile:

Looks great!  Yeah, that ssh is maybe a step ahead of mine now.  I can't wait to see that ssh in full flower.

Any ideas what this is? It has been showing up on some of the bud leaves. Most leaves are OK, but it seems to be spreading :frown:

That is a basic table it obviously is by no means the for sure answer...But in this case I would have to agree. Have you been using ferts? If so what does the box look like in terms of nutes? I've used a miracle grow for roses for a problem like this. This isn't serious but the plants aren't just turning red they are becoming more and more pale I've noticed.

Hey snufkin.

That picture looks to me like a manganese deficiency, can't tell for sure though with just one pic, could we get a couple more? Have you fertilized recently?  Most importantly, have you checked your Ph? I suspect it could be a Ph problem.

Appreciate the help guys!
I've been watering with a 17-19-29 fertilizer (0.05% manganese, 0.05% zinc, 0.50% magnesium, 0.05% copper, 0.10% iron). I measured the pH to be exactly 7.0. It could be that I have been rather aggressive with the fertilizer, I will flush the pot and see what happens.

This is appearing mostly on bud leaves, sometimes as little spots all over the leaf but mostly edges, sometimes in one large cluster. The color of the spot is gray/orange/brown. The spot is very brittle, if I try to bend it it breaks easily.

Myth busted.

Anyways the problem with the haze still persists. Here are two images, one showing the leaf situation:

I've flushed and watered without fertilized since I noticed this but is seems to continue to progress.
