Day 31
I installed my 2700K light alongside the 6500K today to test run before switching to flowering in a week. Unfortunately it brought up the temperature to around 33 degrees C, ouch!

Day 32
To deal with my temperature problems I did a small redesign of my reflector screen.



This brought the temps down to around 29 degrees C, hurray! Unfortunately at the expense of some reflected light, you can't get it all :frown:


I've got a feeling they look shorter and shorter for each picture I post here :smile: I'm working hard on the LST.

I noticed that one of the lowest leafs had started yellowing...


...as so.

I'm guessing this is a N deficiency. I haven't feed them anything but plain tap water since the start, since my soil was nutrient enriched. I'm guessing the nutrients are finally depleted. I'll water with fertilizer tomorrow which contains, per 100ml, 7.1g N, 1.5g P and 5.9g K. Will start by using half the recommended dosage to avoid nutrient burn if my N deficiency guess was incorrect. Unless someone can confirm that it's correct, of course :smile:

So, as mentioned above, I'm planing to start the flowering phase in a weeks time. Then my plants will be about 6 weeks old, and have been in veg for about 5. I don't want them to get too big, since I don't want a too big yield. Too big of a yield might get me into prison if I were to be busted. Not worth it :frown: I'm not a heavy smoker anyways, so anything above 20g will last me a year.

Any advice on that yellowing leaf is appreciated! Both plants show the same thing, and it's isolated to their lowest leaf. I'm 95% sure it's N-def, but then again, it's my first grow so what would I know.

Cheers!

Day 33
It seems my diagnosis was correct! I ended up feeding them with the full nutrient dosage yesterday, and they have grown more in the past 10 hours then they've done the past two days! So now I'm a proud grower, cured my first plant, hurray!

Day 38
 
Side and top view


I've got alternating nodes!

I'm planing to switch my lights over to 12/12 now since I've got a couple of branches with alternating nodes. I'm a bit unsure though. Should all branches have alternating nodes before switching to 12/12? Will only the branches with alternating nodes develop flowers?

I've taken a couple of macro shots on the nodes in hope someone could help me identify pre-flowers. I'm pretty sure none of these are pre-flowers though.

   
Pre-flowers or just young leafs?

:thumbup::thumbup:  looks good shro!  Regarding the alternating nodes, i've never used that as a guideline on when to flower.  I'm in a situation where space is an issue so I judged it based on total plant height.

Thanks for the positive feedback!

Height isn't really an issue for me since I've tied these plants down so much. They are no more then 20 cm over the edge of the pot. I have 1 meter more to play with. Would it be wise to let them veg a bit more?

With CFL bulbs I doubt you will want to use all of your available height due to light penetration issues. The extra time spent in veg may not be worth the extra yield of a bunch of skimpy buds due to poor light penetration.

If you mean the pistils from the calyx - yes, they are light green to white-ish.

Found this on one of the plants. I've only found one so far, anything to worry about?

Day 57 (Week 2 of flowering)

Plants are doing well. Think I got the hang of feeding, pH regulation and stuff now.

Day 70
I've got a bug problem! 22 days ago I noticed a small film with a couple of black dots on, on one of the lower leafs. I figured it was residue from fertilizers in the water. Didn't think more about it, until two days ago, when I noticed that there was more, and now on leafs so far up that there was no chance it could have come from watering. Further investigation led me to believe that it was damage caused by thrips. Looked around but couldn't see any movement. The black dots and the silver like patches was enough evidence for me to panic though, so I cooked together a mixture of water, garlic and a couple of habaneros, since I had read that they don't like neither, and I had no access to neem oil. Sprayed both plants throughly and monitored them for a while. A while later I noticed activity on the leafs, small white larvae all over the place. I removed the most affected leafs and crushed all bugs I could see. I've kept this game up since then, spraying and crushing bugs. I've also ordered some neem oil, which will hopefully arrive on Monday. I'll then switch from my garlic&capsaicin spray to neem oil & water, which should hopefully help further.

White Widow is almost unaffected, most likely because it's covered in THC filled trichomes. As I said in my Doctor's Diagnosis thread, I would have made an insecticide out of my plants had I had more than two of them.

I'll update with pictures later tonight, when "the sun" is up :smile:
