@ratdog they're looking lush mate, just having a little catch up on the diaries after a nightmare few weeks. Getting nutrient levels right can be such a fine art during the flowering stage, I'd been playing it cautious after overdoing it towards start/mid flowering to suddenly being ravenous iirc when the buds start to bulk up. After quite a while where 1.5ml/l was all they could handle I was too slow to up it to the eventual 4ml/l they needed. Remember scoffing at the feeding guide (shogun) for ages as it recommended 3-4ml/l in softwater prior to that point lol 

 

 

hello mate, thanks for the kind words, i'm sure they won't want more than 3ml max tbh but i will be keeping a very close eye on them, having spent a small fortune on the new lights i want to get my money's worth. at least they are looking happy still. this intense stuff is certainly better and stronger than bio bizz.

Yeh I was quite shocked with how much the cream caramels needed towards the end they were way hungrier than the fast bud to the point where I often had to feed them at different levels. Finickity things these plants at times!

 

Will have to give the Intense range a try at some point, just need to find a bricks and mortar store that sells them as don't like getting stuff posted these days.

Nice. I'm going to chuck a cmh in between two 600w leds in a 3x1.5.  I know leds run less efficiently/wear out faster if they operate hot, so I'll be keeping them both slightly above the cmh hood. 

You'll need co2 next if you turn all that juice on. Pk's going on too, what's so special about these fuckin papers??

i have just checked and there's very little heat coming from the edge of the cmh hood but i have made sure it's slightly lower just in case. no co2 but i do have intense pk phite to try out.

 

the papers lol they are bloody lovely, the lightest papers i've tried, i was a raw fan but raw taste like newspaper in comparison, it's a bit of a joke really as i have loads of packets from the last tow comps already mounting up, enough to last about 5 years atm

 

temps sitting at 27.5 half way up the tent

i have had issues with Ca def for about 5 years (it just seemed to start, the water board must have been fucking with the supply, i know we use a reservoir for our supply ) and i struggled to deal with it, and it's been solved by swapping to intense, i'm well impressed and should have made the switch ages ago tbh.

just rechecked my water supplier for hard/softness, and although they rate it as moderately soft, it's actually soft!

today is day 31 in veg, another week or so will see these flipped i reckon. i'm loving the growth with these leds still, some lice stout branches and still fairly squat.

 

too many to take out and photograph them all but here's two zkittlez and crystal candy's at random and the do sweet do

 

zkittlez

do sweet do

all are drinking faster now, so i have started feeding, 2ml grow, 2ml foundation, 1ml runzyme, and 1.5ml of mag/cal

 

temps are a steady 27.5-28 which i'm quite happy with now.

not the best shots but it seems the light is penetrating nicely down the canopy

foolishly i fed at 2.5ml bloom again this morning all bleary-eyed, they definitely only need a couple ml now at most i would say, no serious damage but there are signs they don't want more.

No worries they’re stunning, I’m a couple of weeks behind you and seem to have limited the stretch as much as I could, I’ll be very happy if they look like yours in that time.
