    Hey guys. I just started my first grow and I'm looking for input,good or bad... I got 3 fem sour diesel from seedsman. They're in a 5x5x6.5 with a gavita 6/750 de. Grown in FFOF. About a month old now. I am going to try mainlining with lst so i can keep them short and don't burn them. Here are pics before i topped.

    ...and after...

    Thanks for the kind words. I have one goal with this grow, and that is just to keep them alive until harvest LOL

    Update: well, what was once me just trying to keep my plants alive had turned into an experiment lol. Thanks to the advice of some other growers, I got the free sample of mega crop. So I decided I would give one plant the mega crop, give one the fox farm nutes, and the other is getting plain water ( unless it desperately needs nutes later on, I won't make it suffer lol.) I gave them both half strength for now.

    This is the fox farm. To be fair, it was alreadya little bigger than the others before I fed it. Itgot big bloom and grow big from fox farms.

    73% humidity? Seems a bit high. Better watch out for mold if it gets that high later in flowering.

    Temps look fine though. Just keep the humidity in check.

    Thanks for the advice. I will keep a close eye on it. It shoots up at night. I have a dehumidifier, but I need to get a timer for it to run when the lights are off... Will definitely take care of it before flowering.

    They are just exploding with growth at this point. And they are strong too!! I've had to adjust my methods of tying them down. Not much else to report right now. One plant has a few yellow tips. Oddly enough it is the plant that's getting straight water. Could it be some kind of deficiency? Here's some pics... IMG_20180806_162840229_HDR.jpg

    Yellow tips:

    Do you guys think the yellow tips means it needs nutes? I won't make it suffer lol, just wanted to see how long it could go without any.

    your typical store bought soil will sustain most growth for 2-3 /3-4 weeks.

    Thanks for the reply. I suppose I am lucky it lasted this long. I will begin feeding it nutes.

  14. That's very neat a manifold, very professional. I always have trouble getting all colas growing to the same heights.

    Thank you very much! I had to change how I held them down. I was putting stakes in the ground to hold them but they very quickly got strong enough to pop them right out of the ground lol. The past few days they have grown so fast I have had to adjust themth couple times a day to keep them where I want. But I'm a newb so I like to check on them quite often anyway!

    Just a quick update for my own personal reference.

    I checked them today and the plant being fed fox farm nutes was the only one that needed water. Last time it got plain water, so this time I gave it half strength nutes again.

    I am going to hold off on watering the other 2 as they were still a little heavy.

    They are all still growing well. Nothing worth photographing though...

  18. I suggest you try calcium chloride to get rid of moisture

    indeed, be sure to go easy at 1st until you see how they respond and then build your feeds as you go. One of the biggest mistakes i see growers make it to over fertilize trying to force growth and big buds. :D

    Update - I watered the plant that was previously getting no nutes. I gave it cal-mag and mega crop. It's deficiency was more apparent today so I hope that helps.

    The plant on strictly mega crop still isn't thirsty yet.

    These things are little bushes. I have seriously contemplated some defoliation. Take a look...

    Oh and I've been working on bringing my humidity down for when I flower. It's getting better but my temps went up because I left it on all day. I'll probably just run it at night during flower. But for some reason when I use a timer, every time the dehumidifier restarts I have to manually push the button for the automatic pump. So it is still a pain even with a timer.
