Hahahaha you got me cracking up over here… i know those Diesels look small. They are behind. The one on the back left i busted 2 main branches off training it…lol… I’m bad, i know, I’m terrible… but, they’re just plants to me. If i kill it, no biggie. I’ll just grow another one. I don’t name them and refering to them as she or her just doesn’t sit well with me…lol…
I take more of a scientific approach to cultivating and Horticulture. Well, at least i try to. I would’ve definitely been one of those absent minded professors you see in the movies because i mess up stuff all the time.

Just watered the 2 Mowie Wowies and gave them some more diluted feed of 600 PPM. Checked the runoff on both and one is at 1200 ppm with 6.7 pH. Its drifting upwards. Gotta watch it. The other is 2050 ppm with 6.5 pH.
I am not seeing anything terribly wrong other that a few spoty faded leaves that were caught underneath other growth before i pruned yesterday. The new growth is looking fine. I am tempted to flush the 2050 ppm down to 1000 though… but i am not seeing any issues. What does the census have to say? Can i get a few opinions or instructions to sway me?
@kaptain3d @Shadegrown or anyone else is welcomed to offer sound advice. Thank you in advance.
Oops pics would help.
Edit: top pic is 6.7 ph bottom is the 2050 ppm

You got me cracking up over here… I’m saying the nyc in the front right is damn booming!! :wink::rofl::rofl::rofl::sunglasses::metal:t2:
I wouldn’t worry with flusjing down the mw. Just water no feed next time and check runoff again. :+1:t2:
They look great in the pics! :star_struck:

Thats what I’m saying also. .i don’t want to create a problem.
Next its just straight ph water for the 2050 ppm and 6.2 pH water for the 6.7 MW

Thank you brother… i am doing just that… if i flush it down it will just create issues, i know it. I just watered advice from my elders before i locked my decision into effect…
I should’ve tested runoff sooner but i was feeling confident… glad i humbled myself and checked it this time…we a know where pride gets us. Pride is ugly to me… i dislike what it does to things…

Wish I had that much forethought before sodee popping mine. I’m with 3D…my standard advice now is leave it alone and see. :wink::rofl::sunglasses::+1:t2:

Your right, I’ve been suprised by plants a few times. I’ve read that they planted a bunch of cannabis around the Chernobyl site to eat up all the radiation that contaminated the soil. If it can survive that!!!

Watered and fed both NY Diesels today. Runoff read 1500 ppm for both and 6.5 and 6.7 pH for each. I don’t know why i have 2 plants drifting upwards pH, but they are both on the same side of the tent under the same light. I am thinking the light is effecting their growth slightly different on that side and thats whats causing the pH to drift upwards on both? I could be wrong. Its just a theory…

It’s steady as she goes here… as soon as i pull the restraints, it’s full steam ahead. They have been vegging for almost 6 weeks now, which is normally the cut off time to initiate flowering but, they are so far behind to me compared to my last grow where i started them outside for a month. Then moved them indoors to the tent and they bushed up quickly. So much that i was running out of room witjin 2 weeks. I had to flip to flowering out of fear of losing head space for them.
Its going to be a 3 month veg for me this run, easily… i am going another 6 weeks on this one.

Wow! That’s incredible and insane!!! I was going to ask you about those u shaped metal things you used to train your plants? Was curious about getting some and trying to combine my method with yours. Especially now that I had a lesson in grow lights.
But the way your plants look so bushy and lush is truly inspiring. I’m looking forward to upgrading my soil and lights!

I’m learning!!!

Be careful so it doesn’t happen again… When you finally flip them to flowering, they should be a lot “wider” than your untrained plants last year. And they should also stretch a lot during the first 3 weeks of flowering… I’m just saying: don’t forget to take that into account for your planning… :nerd_face:

As far as those metal u shaped things, i use old wire coat hangers. Cut them to lenght and bend them over into a u shape. Cheap and easy for me anyway.
