I never measure the ec of the run off though, do you think I should start doing that? What run off ec should I be looking?

 

You should 100% be looking at the run-off mate it's one major way to see what your plants are actually taking up :)

 

There is a lot of very useful info on the benefits of measuring run-off and what readings you should be seeing throughout the grow ;)

 

I can't put a direct link here as it's to a secondary site so I'll pm you the link :yep:

 

All the best

Cheers for the link Mark. Ive just measured my run-off and it's reading EC 5.8 which seem bloody high to me! I'm two and a half weeks from harvest now so have just brought my nutes down to EC 1.7 from 2.4. After reading the article about run off it's sounds like mine is WAY too high but all the leaves on my plants seem fine and have only the very slightest nute burn on the tips so not sure what that's all about. I'll take reading of my run-off again tomorrow to see if it's any different.

That's super high mate, I think with that much built up feed in the medium I would swap out to just water. 

 

If you putting in say 1.5 e.c and test your run-off that should ideally much lower than what's going in, say 0.4 e.c run-off from 1.5 e.c going in. This let's you know the plant is taking up 1.1 e.c  :yep:

 

I would just water until you get a runoff reading of 1.4 e.c then start back in with a 1.2-1.5 e.c feed :bong:

 

All the best

What do you think would be the effects on the plants of having such a high reading from the run off? Wouldn't it show up on the leaves? Or could the plants look fine but the yield be reduced?

Typically we would be seeing some signs of overfeeding, posdible leaf tip burn etc :) are you not seeing any signs of overfeeding other than your high e.c levels?

hi. I purchased 3 seeds about a yr ago , all three cracked yet one was slower and smaller than the other 2. im growing them in a rdwc in a room 1.1*3.8 under 3 630cmh lights. once the 2 larger plants 2/3 filled the scrog frame, i flipped to flower. These ladies are very leggy and after 2 wks of flower i introduced super bud to stop the stretch. the smaller plant is squatter and smaller it must have more indica in her.  I have taken clones from the largest plant so hopefully next run there will be more uniformity with the grow. .the inter-nodal spacing is quite far compared to other strains I have tried, yet she got to the flip stage a week earlier than the other strains I've tried.  its only the second week of flower and the plants are growing and drinking quite robustly

@wilson2 any chance we could talk you into running a diary of your outdoor grow? 

 

We would really like to follow along :yep:

finished the grow 1.45g/watt very impressed. I heavily tipped it to reduce the head size, yet I still ended up with quite a few the size of coke cans. I lost a little to mold so will lower the humidity next grow and possibly because the heads got that heavy they fell back into the canopy towards the end of the grow. I wont let it get as high next time so the double screen has a better chance of supporting it. now to see what it smokes like.

Anyone familiar with this strain? I seem to have two different phenos. One is quite compact yet the other one is way more open in structure and looks more sativa. Anyone seen either of these and got more info on how they turn out taste wise?

I can’t give you a good comparison of the two as I didn’t grow them in a good environment. The open structure one was definitely my favourite but I’m running a cut of each outdoors so I will let you know in 4 or 5 months time mate.
