Hempy Growers: leaving plants alone?
    #410286 - 05/02/10 03:14 AM (6 years, 7 months ago)

Hempy growers: how long would you feel safe leaving your plants alone?  What would you do to prepare them for your absence?

Oh, also, what sort of nutrients do you use?  I'm considering FN Grow/Bloom, but would like to hear your experiences.

LOL I havent watered or fed my plants in like 3 weeks now. And they are still alive (and green)The bottoms are browning but other than that they look good and I'm sure I could bring them back pretty easy. They are oldish though so I dont know, I thought it was funny cuz they are males and I'm tourturing them. But yeah I think it probably depends on the size of your plants and temps and stuff.

Thanks Trip, though I'm looking for a typical grow situation under lights (preferably under 400-1000W HID for comparison's sake, but I'm not too picky).

My guess is that beyond 4 or 5 days is going to be hard to manage without some sort of alternate reservoir, like a drip system.  I'd rather not have to deal with/invest in a drip system just yet.

Yes, 4 days would be about max for a plant under lights with a fully developed root system. Triptonic is actively trying to kill his plants so I highly advise against taking his advice on this subject.

I wasnt giving advice I was saying that they are still alive after 20 days of no food or watering. Which I find funny.

But yes I am trying to kill them, slowly but surely.

well, I do find that interesting from a scientific standpoint :shrug: I never would have expected 20 days in a hempy bucket (or even soil) to be survivable. How much vermiculite did you use in your mixture?

Alive to me means they are still perky and green.
