This grow will be my largest to date, 13 plants. As usual I am running two Mars Hydro TSW2000W leds.
Cocoa perlite mix in 5 gallon smart pots.I use the GH line of nutes, Armour Si , Rapid Start and bloom boosters. I use the Coco for Cannabis fertigation technique but am watering by hand for now. I was using automatic watering until my res. pump took a shit and flooded my grow space.
Temp. 72 to 78 deg. F
Humidity runs around 45 to 50 Percent.
Lights on a 18/6 schedule. PH I keep around 60 to 62
Change light schedule to 14/10, 3 weeks into flower.
I have also added a Mars Hydro TS1000 to the mix.
So I been having a bit of issue with nutrient lockout. Think I have it solved, dumb old fart thing, but wanted to show some before and after.
Now I don't have befores of one set or the after of the other, and if you understand that, well, gonna share?
My monkey og and company suffered bad as the other 2 you see in the other pic. After a serious flush, not an easy task with autopots, but doable. I put them on a low ppm transition diet and they revegged and will just finish outside.
Shit happens but glad I could save them. Hopefully the other 2 will come around as well
Outside filtered, declorined, etc.
If this works out I am going to go this way with my grows even inside. An only water system would be great. Even if I have to add a few nutes later, beats what I do now! Just Pre clean the water, the water sits at 400 ish ppm an 7.0 ish pH filtered. Should be ok what say you dirt farmers, is the pH a concern? I don't think so but I am all ears.
Since they can pick and choose nutrients. This is like a dirt grow but bottom feed and only water.
Self filling tank
Here is my LAC been in the fridge still very active. As you see I added in the molasses to keep it fed.
Put 300 ml into 10 gals and aerated it over night. Plants are loving it. Here I have used half and still looks like beer, with a molasses like odor.
So here are 2 photos
First is at the point when they transition to cure. Second is at 15 days.
The smell at transition is what you'd expect fermented grass with strange overtones.
At 15 days it smelling like some dank weed brick.
Cuts like chewing tobacco
Smells delicious and while a little damp yet the smoke is smooth and hasty.
I think when its had a month or more it's going to be superb.
