    I will put some more on in a week or so.
    Pics are a bit shakey due to using a camera on my phone. As long as it shows the important bits right?

    Yesterday I had a little hiccup with my NFT where one of my tubes was not getting as much as the others.
    Turned off pump, removed feeder pipes, took out the tube, checked feeder pipes and nozzles for blockage, then replaced. There was no blockage, so restarted the system and everything is fine again! yay!
    The family has grown somewhat so I will give you guys a little update on their progress later today when my babies wake up

    I had to increase the height of my light by about 5cm which kind of worries me (not too much) as one of my plants (Sensi Star) is not growing up as fast as the others, it is a very squat plant, but had problems at the start. I really should have culled it, but I hate killing things just cos its not quite right, and in many ways, I am happy I kept this one because it does now look healthy, just ....... stunted!
    Problem with what I have is that my plant holes in my system really stop me from being able to freely inspect the roots etc, I have already noted that I will be increasing the size of these holes from 3" to 4" after this grow
    Advice needed here from anyone doing an NFT/Flood and drain type system that is of a similar build to mine, how big should I make the holes for the plants? Will my projected 4" be enough? (NOTE : I have 6"drain pipes and making a hole too big will affect structural integrity)
    My build is listed in the DIY forum, there are pics of how I built and created my set-up if you need more info.
    Thank you

    I added these ones here cos its only another day but :-

    Bud forming very nicely on the Super Skunk.jpg
    Super Skunk, the buds are forming nicely

    The Family, the babies are getting bigger!.jpg
    The Family.
    Note the short one right of centre at the front, its really short, this is the Sensi Star with growth problems Its got nice colour, just hasnt grown up as tall. Flowers are showing.

    They are coming along very nicely. I also added a small 4" fan inside under the NFT system so the air inside will all be the same temp. Found that there is a cool spot under the tubes so I set it up so the cool air blows up at the light. This will reduce the heat from the light more as well as help keep the whole room at the same temp.

    The only concern is the flush time. As the plants have budded at different stages and are mixed up (mistake! next time put same plants in same tubes!) with different flowering periods, I am wondering how to go about doing the flush.
    There is going to be about 7-10 days (possibly more but not by much) difference for when the babies are going to be ready.
    Any suggestions?

    I was sitting there, as you do... watching my babies, when I had a bit of a thought.
    I knew for sure my box was far too hot originally and far too humid, so that was sorted.

    It is still a little warm, but all it needs is a small upgrade to the fan from 4" to 5" thats no biggie. Thermometer would confirm this, on shopping list.

    The slightly bigger concern I have is the humidity. Now the plants are getting bigger etc. will the humidity affect the yield and quality by much? My previous grow I know for sure my humidity was tooooo high! Mould, bud mould etc, etc nasty nasty. Now its a LOT drier, it should be better, but I was just wondering. Will the quality and yield be affected much if it is slightly out of optimum. eg 5degrees C too hot, 5-10% humidity too high... (my box is working on over more than under for both atmospheric conditions (i think! lol hard to tell without true readings!)) My gauge is based on the box is slightly warmer than the temp I have my house set at (19degrees C) and the humidity is based on how the air feels just before it rains and it feels about the same. The human body being used to measure atmospheric conditions rawr!

    Note I dont have a hygrometer, no funds, but it will be in my next shopping list.

    The small extraction upgrade I know will for sure sort both problems with one hit. Probably will need to increase humidity after!

    3 Ltr water addded back to normal set level
    3ml pH down
    5ml Oxy
    10 ml A+B Bloom
    20ml Explode (after reading rec amounts I thought I had better catch upp a little, still below rec amount/lower limit.)
    10 ml Multi Total

    Had to add 5Ltr water to bring it up from some really low weird reading, going to double check later, and then tomorrow, some chemical pH testing stuff! FOR SURE!

    I am hoping to get better at taking pics on my crappy phone till I can get a big boys toy.
    Hope you like them... (I really need to keep a sharp eye out on that pH! )

    Checked pH 5.7 should be ok... will give it another check in about an hour or two. 'phew!'
    I must have screwed up somewhere with adding the nutes..
