    VEG GROWTH 18/16 LIGHTS

    I BOUGHT MY CLONES FROM A MED CLUB (ALL LEGAL )TRANSPLANTED THEM IN MY BUC-
    KET UNDER THE HPS (ON OTHER GROWS I USE A CARDBOARD BOX WITH CFL'S FOR VEG
    ITS ALSO GOOD FOR SEPERATING ROOMS) VEG TIME 2 WEEKS
    1 WEEK TO ROOT 1 WEEK TO GROW
    NUTES FOR NEW BABIES I USE 1/1/1 OR 5ML/5ML/5ML PER GAL GH FLORAGRO, FLORAMIC-
    RO, AND FLORA BLOOM (5 GAL IS ALL YOU NEED. CHANGE NUTES EVERY WEEK)
    ROOTS POPPED OUT AFTER 6 DAYS IN VEG. WHEN ROOTS HIT WATER ROOT GROWTH EX-
    PLODES. NOT MUCH GROWTH TILL FLOWERING UNDER SUPER HPS

    FLOWERING 12/12 LIGHTS

    I PUT MY PLANTS IN 36 HOUR DARKNESS TO FLOWER. EXAMPLE: TURN OFF LIGHTS AT 10PM
    ON MONDAY TURN ON IN FLOWER ROOM AT 10AM WEDNESDAY.
    ONCE IN FLOWERING GROWTH EXPLODES FOILAGE AND HEIGHT FOR 1ST 2 WEEKS THAN
    FLOWER(BUDS) FROM THEN ON.
    NUTES I USED A SLIGHTY TWEEKED LUCAS METHOD. WEEK #1 F 2ML/6ML/7ML PER GAL
    WEEK #2 F 0ML/7ML/9ML PER GAL
    WEEK #3 F 0ML/8ML/13ML PER GAL
    WEEK #4 F 0ML/8ML/16ML TILL 1 WEEK
    BEFORE HARVEST. 7 DAYS BEFORE HARVEST 1/4 STRENGTH 0ML/2ML/4ML PER GAL
    1 1/2 TO 2 DAYS BEFORE HARVEST USE ONLY R/O WATER
    FLOWERS STARTED TO SHOW 10-14 DAYS IN
    THEY CROWNED 14-20 IN
    BUDS START TO FILL IN 20-45 DAYS IN
    EACH STRAIN IS DIFFERENT SO HARVEST ONLY WHEN TRICS START TO TURN FROM
    MILKY WHITE TO LIGHT AMBER AND HAIRS HAVE ALL TURNED

    NUTE INSTRUCTIONS AND TIPS

    1. LESS IS MORE 2.A SYRING WITH TUBING IS A CLEAN TIME SAVER
    3.ONLY 5GAL OF NUTES PER BUCKET 4.DURING FLOWERING PLANTS USE ALMOST
    A GALLON OF WATER A DAY. 5.WHEN PLANTS USE UP NUTES TOP OFF WITH 1/4
    STRENGTH NUTES WHEN NEEDED/ I DID EVERY OTHER DAY - MAKE SURE IT PH'ED
    6.CHANGE EVERY WEEK 7.ON NUTE CHANGES AND EVERY OTHER DAY AFTER
    I ADDED 4-5ML OF H2O2(SOLUTION OF HYDROGEN PEROXIDE) TO 5G REZ.
    8.ON NUTE CHANGE I ALSO ADD JUST ONE TSP E.SALT FOR GOOD MEASURE
    9.USE R/O WATER ONLY- ITS EASIER TO WORKWITH. 10.AIR PUMPS 24/7 ALL THE TIME
    NUTE CHANGE HAVE AN EMPTY BUCKET TO MAKE THINGS EASY. HAVING DOUBLE EVERY-
    THING MAKE THINGS REAL EASY,YOU MAKE A SECOND SETUP/NUTES,OXYSTONES,AIR,TUBING.
    ALL YOU HAVE TOO DO AT THAT POINT IS JUST MOVE LID WITH PLANTS TO SECOND BUCKET.

    PROBLEMS I ENCOUNTERD

    I HADE SOME LEAF DISCOLOR AND THAUGHT IT WAS A DEFICIENCY OF SOME SORTS, THAN
    I THAUGHT ALL NEEDED NUTES ARE IN THE GH 3-PART SO MY PROBLEM HAS TO BE 1 OF 2
    THINGS (NOT COUNTING PESTS AND MOLDS-THEY SHOULD BE EASY TO TELL) 1 MY NUTES
    ARE TO STRONG (NOT NORMALY A PROBLEM IF YOU REMEMBER LESS IS MORE WITH NUTES)
    2 IS MY PH IS FLUCTUATING EITHER TOO HIGH OR LOW. (THIS WAS MY PROBLEM)

    DESCRIPTION OF PH PROBLEM LEAVES.
    BURNS AND SPOTS DEVELOPE INBETWEEN VEINS ON
    MIDDLE TO LOWER FAN LEAVES FOLLOWED BY SOME YELLOWING NORMALY STARTING AT TIPS.

    DESCRIPTION OF OVER FERT.
    LEAF TIPS BURN/DRY AND CURL UP
    HEAT MY TEMPS RAN HIGH IN THE CLOSET 85 AVERAGE DURING DAY AND 65-75 NIGHTS.

    HELPFUL HEAT TIPS.
    AIRPUMP GOES OUTSIDE THE HOT ROOM. PUT FAN ON LIGHT POINTING AT
    OUTTAKE FAN.PLANTS CAN THRIVE EVEN IN HIGH TEMPS JUST MAKE SURE THERES FRESH AIR,
    NO LIGHT BURNS, AND TEMPS ARE CONSISTENT. *ALSO YOU CAN TURN YOUR PLANT LIGHTS ON
    DURING THE COOLER NIGHT TIME AND OFF DURING THE HOT DAY*

    RESULTS

    HEIGHT ROM BERRY IS 28 INCHES TALL. SOUR DIESEL IS 44 INCHES TALL
    DRY WEIGHT/YIELD TO BE ANNOUNCED

    PLAN AHEAD I HAD A LOT OF PROBLEMS WORKING THINGS OUT IN THE IMEDIATE MOMENT
    WICH PROBLY STRESSED MY PLANTS A LITTLE

    PH, VENTILATION, AND TEMPS ARE EASILY OVERLOOKED, BE SMART PLAN AHEAD

    DWC GROWTH IS FAST AND MAKES MONSTER PLANTS

    more pics

    the first pics date's are a week off, i fixed it in dec.
    the last pic of a leaf, is ph fluctuation. mine went to low, just got a ph pen last week. 100x easier than those drops. i.e. each rooms lights give the liquid drop mix a different color, makes things annoying.
    my plants are taking up about 1 gal of water a day, i add 1 1/2 ph'ed water every other day, no new nutes till rez change every fri
