Thanks mate  :) , help yourself to tea n biscuits ... 

Fingers crossed I can keep the temperatures under control if the weather gets warmer outside.

Going to look in the reservoir today and just check the EC and PH to see what it's settled at.

Update in 'The Devil's Arse':

 

Last Thursday (24th) was exactly five weeks into bloom phase or 35 days :yahoo:.

I took plenty of photos that night and I will attach them at the end of this post.

 

I refilled the reservoir with 170 Litres fresh water & nutrients last Friday at the following rates :

 

Growers Ark Bloom 2.7 ml / l

Growers Ark Universal Traces 2.3 ml / l

Growers Ark Root Tonic 2.0 ml / l

 

This gave me an EC of 1.6 and the PH settled at 6.1

The nutrient temps have been between 19 - 21 c 

In the past if the nutrient temps get high I have some spare 5L nutrient tubs full of water which I freeze and I dunk them into the reservoir daily before lights on and it keeps my nutrient temps down during the hotter weather. 

 

Moved my hps lights slighty up, just a few inches just as a precaution. 

 

The tent temps have been between 22 - 30 c (including lights off) 

RH readings 49 - 60 

Going to have to keep my eye on the RH and I might even remove fan leaves as harvest time approaches.

 

My plants have responded well to the lollipopping a few weeks previous, the top colas  are looking superb, absolute stonkers :) .

 

The aroma inside the tent is a strong citrus / lemon / with nice heavy skunk undertones, a truly overpowering scent. 

The colas are absolutely covered in crystals, all lovely and sticky.

 

I took some photos which I will post below all taken exactly 5 weeks or 35 days bloom.

 

Below are some canopy shots:

Thanks mate :yep:,

 

I like to keep the feeds simple and I don't go that high with the nutrient strengths / EC in the reservoir.

Going off the pictures and bud development I'm going to say another 3 weeks (21 days) will see this grow come to a conclusion  :bong:

 

The buds are getting HUGE and trichome production is out of control :yep:

 

I would feed for the next 10-14 days mate then cut back to just water for the final 7-10 days which should take you upto the week 8 mark  (56 days total bloom)

 

Do you have a scope to check trichome colour and development? This will let you know the best harvest window for your needs :bong:

 

Past the half way mark now. Buds look great and every update that finish line is getting closer ;)

 

Thanks for taking the time over the bank holiday to update mate things are looking great  :headbang:

 

Until next time ;)

 

All the best

@Dinafem-Mark

 

Thanks Mark,  there's plenty of stonkers in the tent and this coming Thursday ( 31st ) will be 42 days bloom or six weeks.

So I will be taking more photos and updating again in a couple of days :) .

 

I do have a little loupe to check the trichs. The bulb on the loupe has a loose connection on it and flickers on and off so I just use the light on my phone and the loupe magnifying lense, I should invest in a new one really.

 

I have a bottle of Growers Ark Flush and plan to use this in my reservoir with fresh water when the time is right.

It says on the blurb that flushing could happen quite quickly in a recirculating system like mine with multiple floods / feeds.

I will have a better read at the instructions nearer the time because it mentions about checking the reservoir EC when flushing.

 

The buds do look amazing and she's definitely the queen in anyone's Grow space :yep:.

 

Going to be interesting come harvest time, I could do with Edward scissor hands helping looking at the sea of buds lol

Update in 'The Devil's Arse':

 

The outside weather here has been all over the place recently : warm , rainy , cold , hot , humid what's going on.

I am glad I have got my lights on through the night because after 7pm here it is still quite cool outside which helps. 

Last Thursday (31st May) was exactly 6 weeks or 42 days into bloom - yipee :yahoo: again I grabbed a few photos so I will attach them at the end of this update :) .

 

My nutrient strengths have been kept the same and the reservoir got cleaned out

(see photos) and refilled with fresh water (170 litres) and nutrients to the following strengths:

 

Growers Ark Bloom 2.7 ml / l

Growers Ark Universal Traces 2.3 ml / l

Growers Ark Root Tonic 2 ml / l

 

Photos inside the reservoir during a refill:

 

large.5b143c929fd86_DinafemCritical2_0mz.jpg

 

large.5b143c936ed5a_DinafemCritical2_0na.jpg

 

This gave me an EC between 1.4 - 1.6 and PH settled at 6.1 

I let the ph rise over a 3 or 4 days and then adjust it back down if it climbs too high with a reservoir top up.

Reservoir temps have been between 19c - 21c 

The system is still on three floods during lights on.

 

Tent temps have been showing 22 c - 30 c ( including lights off period ) 

RH readings showed 50 - 61 

 

The buds have come on really quick since last lot of photos and I am thinking about swapping the hps bulbs back to my metal halide bulbs for the final run up to harvest time. 

I could even turn my hps bulbs down to 400 watts in the hope it might ripen the plants abit quicker - not sure really.

 

At some point this week I will emptying the remaining nutrient feed and replacing with water and Growers Ark Flush It only.

 

The smell inside the tent now is overpowering with scents of citrus / lemon /  skunk / sweetness.

The flowers are very heavy now and a few that I didn't secure have leaned right over and the buds are so solid / compact. 

 

Below are some front / canopy photos:
