AK 48 SGROG FFOF, 400 watts CFL - FINAL WEIGHTS
    #582345 - 08/30/11 11:17 PM (5 years, 3 months ago)

Day 45

This will be my last AK 48 grow, and my last grow for awhile.  This shit can be stressful :bomb:

I using Fox Farm Ocean Forest cut with 30% perlite and 20% vermiculite.
I have 4 AK 48 clones, 2 each in a 5 gallon Deck Planter
They were under 24 hrs of light for about 1.5 months
They are being fed with FF Tiger Bloom, Grow Big, and Big Bloom
They were put under the screen on the 27th
I'm watering with RO water
I'm using drops to test pH (threw my pH meter against the wall during my last grow) oops! :shrug:
Flowering under 6, 68 watt CFLs 3500K  408 watts total




The 4 ladies are showing signs of stress.  The new growth was getting very light in color.  I believe happened for a few reasons

1.  They were a good 3-4 inches above the screen when I put them in.  The screen is already full.  I believe I put them through some stress with all that training and pruning.

2.  They were hungry...  I've been having problems with the RO water I am purchasing.  The pH is in the 4-5 range.  I mentioned this to the store owner, and he said it's because  the tap water is coming out hot at 92-94 degrees.  It had always been right around 7 before.  Unfortunatly, I found this out by watering my ladies with it unchecked.  I watered with a pH of 4.7 and 1 hour later, my plants looked very sad.  I rewatered with pH corrected water, and all was good.  Like a dumb ass, I did this 2 waterings in a row!  Doing so, I flush a lot of nutes out of the soil.

They got a good feeding yesterday
2 tsp of Grow Big
2 tsp of Tiger Bloom
3 tsp of Big Bloom

3.  A change in heat.  My veg area is constantly in the mid 70's.  My flowering cab hovers from low 80's to mid 80's.  It sometimes reaches the upper.

4.  Change in light temp.  I vegged in about 50/50 CFL spectrum 5000K/3500K Maybe the sudden jump to 100% has something to do with it. 

I'm keeping a close eye on them to see if they worsen or start to recover.

Anyways, next pics will be week end of week 1 of flowering.  Hope you enjoy.

Day 48
Flower 0.5 :grin:

The girls will become women now.  I flip the lights in the am.  Let the fun begin



They are starting to recover since there feeding.  I'm going to water them tomorrow with 6.8 pH RO water.

One thing I forgot to mention in my first post, My goal this grow is to break 5 ounces.  This SCROG will fill about 90-95% of my 6 sq ft cab.

Not adding anything, just filling more of the screen.  Last grow was about 75% full.

Day 56
Flower 8

Pics are from last night



Fed last night as well pH 6.5-6.8

3 tsp Tiger Bloom
3 tsp Big Bloom
1/2 tsp Grow Big

pH issues are back under control.  The plants once again look hungry, but better than before. 
I let the plants in the far corner just grow (first pic).  They are hard to reach in my cab.  The right side of the cab has a more even canopy.

Fed today pH 6.5-6.9 RO

I also like how the back corner of my cab has a staircase like look to it.  It worked out rather nicely. The back buds are getting as much light as they can.

Day 65
Flower 17

So, today I cracked my closet door because I would not be home when the lights come on, and I noticed the lights were already on...
Yesterday I did not check on my plants at all, I feel asleep.  The only explanation I have is that the on button, on my timer, got bumped, but when?  at least 48 hrs ago, but maybe longer. 

Regardless, I'm just going to let them grow.  There is nothing more I can do.  I don't have another lined up.  I was going to take some time off.

Mad, but what can you do?  I will not let this stress me out.
