Hello i hope everyone had a good weekend.
White label super skunk 28 days since flip and their starting to fill out a bit and are starting to frost up nicely.
They range in height from 35 inches to 38 inches and seem to be quite healthy looking up till now so fingers crossed they carry on doing well.
I really need to get my next set of clones ready but my mother doesn't look so healthy as we were away for a week and i think she dried out a little to much as she is a fair size.
One of the major changes i have made on this grow is not changing the water in the buckets but just topping them up and they seem to have thrived because of it but it remains to be seen if i get any issues with the plants because of this.
As always any advice is much appreciated



All have a good day.

Hey bud,

Looking nice.

What do you mean about the buckets? The thing your using to feed them or the trays under the pots?

Morning Mellow i hope your good.
The bucket the plants are sat in as they are DWC rather than changing the ressovoir [the nutes in the buckets] i have just been topping them up with fresh nutes.
I think the issue i may of had with my first grow was the change of the water tempreture when changing the nutes shocking them a bit.
Well whatever it was these seem to be doing a lot better.
You have a good one

Morning Al i hope all is good in eire.
Donegal all ireland champions eh.
As you know i am one for trying different things and so if i grow any as bushy as this in the future i think i will prune a lot of the foliage to allow a little more light through to the lower parts of the plants.
The top plant is drinking about 12 litres a week and the other two are taking about 8-9 so i think they are gonna end up a descent size i just hope i don't have any problems between now and harvest.
You have a good week

Hi '66

I'm following your work with great interest as DWC is a kind of setup I can easily implement is my space and am considering it for a future grow. You have done an excellent job in your latest grow and I'm quite sure that the next one will be even better.

The idea of topping up the nutrient solution as opposed to completely changing it makes sense as I believe plants generally respond to gradual changes much better than they do to sharp ones. But you have to be extra careful with the nutrient solution to avoid accumulates over time.

Hello OG i hope everything is hunky dory with you.
I do check the ppm and ph every couple of days and if the ppm is to high i just adjust it with plain water to the required level.
Changeing the res every week and the high tempretures on my first grow accounted i think to a little of a smaller harvest than would of been the case.
Have a good day.

Is is indeed a smart move to keep a close watch over your pH and EC (ppm). It can save you from a lot of trouble and also keep your ladies thriving constantly. However, those measurements do not tell the whole story about what is going on in your nutrient solution and therefore should not be the basis for abandoning reservoir changes altogether. Still I would try to keep the reservoir changes to an absolute minimum.

And BTW if plants are given the proper nutrients at the proper time, they can withstand a variety of environmental problems such as high temperatures with little change in their growth rate. For example, during hot days the plants' need for Potassium increases; if that need is met, they will tolerate the heat easily otherwise they will start to show signs of stress. These types of nutrient solution manipulation techniques are especially easy for hydro growers to implement and are really simpler than they sound. For example, a small bag of SOP (Sulphate of Potash) is dirt cheap and is a great source of highly soluble and readily available Potassium and Sulfur and is very useful in situations where you need to increase only the Potassium content rather than increasing the dosage on your whole feed which will probably not have the same effect.

Sorry for the long post, you seem to be the type of person who likes to experiment and I admire the attitude so I will try my best to assist you should you decide to try new things.

Cheers

Thanks OG.
I was not planning on not changing the res altogether just about every 4 weeks as they are 30 days 12/12 and seem to be doing well.
What i will do is get the temp of the refill as close as possible to the one being replaced.
God knows i need assistance with just about everything i do being as thick as a plank.
Thanks again and have a good evening.

Hello i hope everyone is good.
White label super skunk 35 days of 12/12 grown in DWC using advanced nutrients.
All seems to be going good so far and they seem to be putting on weight steadily.
One question for those of you that have tried it but is it possible and worth while to harvest a plant in stages? taking off all the top and side mature buds and so letting more light get to the smaller buds that are lower or buried under the denser foliage?







As always any advice is much appreciated.
All have a good week.
