  Sounds like your temps might be a bit high right now. I'm guessing you'll be getting an exhaust fan. Try to shoot for 74 for optimum growth. If you have your ballast in the same space try moving it to a different room if the cord is long enough.  The ballast can put out heat so by separating it from your grow area you can help lower your temps a tiny bit. Also you might want to start feeding with a balanced veg fertilizer that has micronutrients at this point.

  The twisted growth is probably from the intensity of the light, if the plant was vegging under fluoros before cutting then the clone will probably have to adjust its growth to the new light intensity, but after a while you'll start to see normal growth again. Some nutrient deficiencies like zinc can cause twisted growth but it's not likely at all that that is what you're seeing.


Good luck and the plant looks healthy. Flo is supposed to be an amazing strain too and every time I've smoked it I haven't been disappointed.

You could try getting a second one of the fans you have and hanging it at the top of the door exhausting the hot air, then have the bottom one bringing in fresh air. The only thing is you would have to make it moveable so it isn't in your way when you care for the plants.

Id deff add a inline fan to the 1000w unit.... high temps prob will be a problem in that small space

whats up mocobycuh! welcome to the growery :gethigh:

You're definetly going to need to water/feed @ a ph of 6.5  what are you using to test the water?



In my room with clones and small seedlings I use these ph drops by gen hydro. It's cheap and works great plus you can get a much better read of the ph than what you're getting.

The drooping and curling of the leaves looks more like over watering......maybe ph issues. Where your ph readings are so vague this could be the issue. It's hard to tell though. Your temps are a tad high, but not high enough to cause real stress for the plant. As doc said above low to mid 70's is what you should be shootin for.

The plant looks REAL hungry. What are your plans for nutrients?

You should get rid of those push pins and use eye or J hooks and screw then into the wall, chances are those pins will pop out when flowering and the plants start to gain weight.

Also running some sort of actual exhaust ventilation would be huge. That floor fan is a nice start but chances are it doesn't really do much to cool that room off. If you could duct to your reflector and exhaust the hot air outside you'd see a remarkable improvement in the looks of that plant :grin:

Also, where did you find a flo clone? I grew it years ago and I loved it, but the colorado clone scene is super weird right now.
