    Please let me know what you think and about how much longer until these are finished. I ran out of CO2 2 weeks ago (a little less) Is it worth it to get more now to finish the grow? I these as clones (around 12-14 days old) on 2/21.

    Setup

    • 400 watt Black Dog - Awesome light but expensive
    • 8 bucket hydrofarm - ok for starters - but i need something a little more sturdy (thinking of using PVC piping)
    • 21 gallon reservoir - sucks when u have a leak which is rare but be very cautious setting up your system.
    • PH always between 5.0-6.5
    • PPM - now its round 1400 - I'm letting it get one more dose tomorrow with Nutrients ten just plain water (PH tested and adjusted or reverse osmosis) from there to harvest
    • Humidity - VEG - 50-75% (usually was at least 55-60 but mistakes DO happen
    • Humidity - Bloom - 40-50% (lot less starting about a week into flowering than veg)
    • Temp - 80-85 (lights on) 70-75 (light off)
    • 4x5 area wish just 4 plants (testing somethings
    • 1 - 400 CFM Fan into charcoal filter
    • bottom vent goes to open window - when top fan sucks out it causes a draw in from the bottom one
    • FloraGro Micro and Bloom
    • just giving Bloom now and al ittle Gro if it think i need a bit more nitroget
    • (NONE OF MY LEAVES EVER YELLOWED EVEN DURING FLOWERING - that a probem?)
    • (coming soon) 1000watt K5 Kind or Fluence SpuderX (kick ass lamp) - still not sure - suggestions?

    Most want around 2 weeks of no nutrients to burn minerals, sugars and chlorophyll up. Find the plants usual flowering period and go from there to figure out when to cut nutrients off for a couple weeks of just water. Keep the water aerated if the roots are totally in water.
    You stick a bunch of females together and don't want any problems? Good luck. They are going to mess you up.

    @vermontstrongbuds
    I grew an indoor plant this winter and harvested it. I went by the whole "2 weeks" of a flush. I will tell you that with my usual watering schedule under my light was only 1-2 x's a week. Regardless of it being 2 weeks without nutes...THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH WATER FLUSHING OUT THE MEDIUM. I screwed up and allowed a ton of nutes to stay in the soil and therefore the buds. During your last 2 weeks UP the amount of water you regulary use or flush longer to get the nutrient taste out. I usually go organic but i used "tiger bloom" on that plant and there was a noticeable flavor of something other than bud. The smell was good...BUT not as good as the reveg smells right now. I completely mistreated myself by not PROPERLY flushing the medium of the residual nitrates from my fertilizer of choice.

    Of those 3, the only one that uses remotely current technology if the Fluence and that's not that remarkable.

    Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and comments......I'm really trying to learn as much as I can - just can't seem to happen fast enough :-)

    I'm dividing my 8x8x8 G Tent into two halves -- most likely keep the 400 watt Black Dog w/ some LED light bars on either side of the light mover for veg -
    For bloom - I'm still not sure what light to get but so far it's between the SpyderX and the K5 Kind - I'm really liking the spyderX's.......they do actually draw 1030watts though......

    If you're trying for a 4x4 flower space look at this as well. Much more efficient and cost effective. https://horticulturelightinggroup.co...oducts/hlg-550
