That’s how Boogie Brew was designed assuming you have both the veg and flowering teas.

Start by filling out the form, and Welcome to the forum.


Welcome to ILGM! :v:


They’re growing in 8 gal. of soil, haven’t checked the PH Level yet; one plant is from a seed unknown and the other three are medicinal (a gift from a friend).
It’s a basic brew mix (used once during veggie stage and again during flowering with a flush in between).
I added a additional “Deep Red 300” yesterday along with the 600 LED grow light. Unfortunately, the maximum height I can go is 8-10 inches above the highest plant.
Although I’m managing to keep the air flow, temperature and humidity at a 69% / 86F - 80% / 98F, I may need to relocate them out of their tent.!
Right here, they’re at a 71% / 88*F[image|374x500](upload://zb


Only 1 pic made it. That shows 2 males in the back row.


Yup those back two need to get trashed





I thought they were females! :weary:

Also, some of the flowers must be dropping for there’s a white, powdery substance on some of the leaves!

O no cut those down ASAP you will need to clean your area good before you start again


:frowning: That’s a Bummer! Lol!

Okay! I’m on it right now!


I know that you’re new so this may sound crazy but soil is a broad term. What type/brand did you use? Did you add in anything to it?

Ph control and modification is why we ask for your numbers. A ppm or ec meter is used for this. This is something you may consider buying.

The humidity numbers you gave will not be good when you have flowering plants.


Regardless you’re still going to want to clean everything super well otherwise you could have a chance of pollinating anything you start


Good catch. How about a picture or two in natural light? It will be way easier to see the plants. Or even possible haha.

What soil are you using? What lights are you using? Saying “soil” is not helpful.


That powder is not flowers you see on the leaves, THATS POLLEN!!!
Your other two plants look immature, Perhaps you could move them outside and then destroy the male plants and clean the tent.
Put a plastic trash bag over them then cut them at the base.
Remove and wash everything in the tent. Then wash your clothes you wore and shower. You wont get all the pollen because I guarantee its all over your house already. But washing is the best way to remove as much as possible.
Using a light spray rinse off the other two plants , preferably in the morning, and let them dry in the sun.


You could wet the two younger plants down. Put them outside. And spray them down. Water makes pollen inviable? Unviable? Worthless! But the guys gotta go. N that space needs a GOOD cleaning. Also their soil will have trace amounts of pollen…

Life has a way honestly. U may not be able to get rid of it all. But :man_shrugging:t5: And when you flip ur light hours those ladies are gonna double in height. U have to work quickly and id look into LST (low stress training) and supercropping (rough bending).

I like your pup @Growing_Strong

White like mine


The soil came from my garden (PH Level was 6.7 at the time); I just learned that two of them were males :confused:
I will need to start over again!

My outdoor triplets finally went to flower (after i unplugged my porch light :man_facepalming:t5::man_facepalming:t5:)

Of course both the survivors were boys… happy i tossed em out before sexing. Could have crushed my ladies… but hey now u know. Chop those fellas down, disinfect again… n next round up
