    I wanted to come back and show the Black Gold (mostly peat) & Jack's Classic grow[1] at Day 63. First, days 1 & 3 under a 16w Philips 3000k "Wide Surface" LED lightbulb from Home Depot: Day 42 (a week or so into flower still using the 4000k, or 6400k CMH. I'm confused about which I was using...

    Post-harvest weights and photos of trimmed/dried buds I've let them dry slowly for 3.5 weeks, to 65-66% humidity (jarred). Final weight: 311.5g (11oz. One ounce (28g) shy of 3/4 lb.). There was some larfy stuff I separated and smoked while drying/trimming. There could have been another 5g that...

    Dec 8 (DAY 102) -- NINTH WEEK OF 12/12 BEGINS TONIGHT Feeding The way the plants seem to be eating less (taking longer to dry), and the last 1710ppm (with large volume), I'm nervous about buildup in the soil. I'm going to do the "booster" again (NPK ratio: 1-2.2-2.2), and still weaker (last one...

    Nov 30 (DAY 94) Feeding. This time it took a little longer than 48 hours for the soil to dry. (Previously, it has been drying in 36 hours). It seems they may be slowing down. Targeting 1.18-1-2.02 NPK ratio & 651ppm again (last one was 673). Potassium sulfate (0-0-50). Want 187ppm GrowMore Sea...

    Nov 26 (DAY 90) Feeding. That last feeding was a mild 1-2.4-2.4 ratio "bloom booster." It might have helped. It definitely didn't hurt. I was able to go almost 48 hours before feeding again. They didn't seem to drink as fast after that "booster" feeding. I'm going back to 1.16-1-2 NPK ratio...

    Nov 21 (DAY 85) continued... Feeding I had to feed again before lights out (and the remainder the next morning.). This feeding was essentially the same as the last one. Actual NPK ratio came out: 1.16-1-1.96 (720 ppm made from water: 153; K2SO4: 211; Sea grow: 457; fish: 47; kelp: 5ppm. Amber...

    Nov 18 (DAY 82) Feeding I've been thinking about doing a "bloom booster" feeding. To me, that would be NPK ratio 1-2.5-2.5 (fairly mild to many "lineup" schedules). I thought that might be safe since the last feeding was high N. That N would carry it through. I've never really thought boosting...

    Nov 16 (DAY 80) Feeding (24-36 hour cycles now) It's drinking faster now. It's been 30 hours since I last fed. It looks very good after that last stronger feeding. I'm going 15% stronger this time (795ppm not counting Amber Humic. Last time was 719). I'm going to bump N & K higher (as a...

    Nov 13 (DAY 77) Feeding They seem happy again after that last (stronger) feeding. The way the runoff "ppm vs volume" is working (seems to be reaching the plateau I like to be in with my usual soil), I'm going to feed another 15% stronger (with more runoff too). I think I'm in the right range to...

    Nov 8 (DAY 72) Feeding The last feeding was 483/547ppm (depending on whether you count the kelp & Liquid Karma. I don't typically.). The feeding before that was 518ppm (not counting the Amber Humic). The nutrients don't seem to be building up in the soil (the runoff ppm doesn't show it). I'll...

    Nov 6 (DAY 70) Feeding The last feeding was 480ppm (the one before that was 442ppm). I'm going to boost N & K again, ratio 1.35-1-1.65. I'm going to aim for a similar strength as last feeding. But, I'm also using kelp (again), and Liquid Karma (instead of Amber Humic). That makes it a little...

    Nov 4 (DAY 68) Feeding Because the runoff ppms aren't showing much buildup, I'm targeting even stronger: 480ppm (last feeding was 442ppm). I'm going to do NPK ratio 1-1-1 because I know SeaGrow (by itself) is mild. If it's too much, I would expect to see the runoff ppms rise (and reach...

    Oct 30 (DAY 63) Poured remainder of feeding (at lights on) begun late Day61 (before lights out. I meant to tide the plants over till lights on next morning. But, apparently I made them wet enough to last 24 hours longer.). Oct 31 (DAY 64) FEEDING The plants definitely liked that last stronger...

    Oct 28 (DAY 61) FEED (across two days again) In the previous post: I mentioned that the plants didn't seem as happy. I theorized it was lower temperature (and/or lower humidity). Later I realized: it was probably the 20% & 15% runoffs of the prior two feedings, and how the runoff ppms dropped...

    Can you provide details about the light used? Did you use it unmodified, or remove the lens(es) for less absorption loss? (They often have a front & inner lens. Did you remove either? Removing both seems to just turn it into an ordinary lightbulb like I'm using, with the diodes facing the way...

    Oct 25 (DAY 58) continued... Lights I went to Home Depot after posting, bought two more Philips 3000k "wide surface" bulbs, and replaced the two 100w-equiv A19s I had in the left top-fixture (I swapped the left/right arms to the front/back arms so the new wide-surface bulbs would be in the same...

    Oct 22 (DAY 55) continued.... Feeding The soil's too dry to wait till morning. I'm going have to feed a little before lights go out (14 hours from last feeding. I'll pour the rest in the morning.). They're definitely doing well with the stronger (300+ ppm) feedings. BTW: I'm keeping all the...

    Oct 21 (DAY 54) Feeding The plants are doing even better after the last strong feeding (304ppm, and a 319ppm before that). I'm doing the same feeding this time: NPK ratio 1-1-1, but going a little stronger (335ppm). GrowMore Sea Grow All Purpose (16-16-16). Want 335ppm. GrowMore Amber Humic...

    Oct 19 (DAY 52) Feeding The plants are doing even better after the last feeding (312ppm, not counting Amber Humic). I'm pretty sure I was underfeeding. This time I'm doing the same feediing this time: NPK ratio 1-1-1 (312ppm -- entirely from Grow More Sea Grow. No modifications to the NPK...

    Oct 17 (DAY 50) Feeding The last feeding (284ppm, not counting Amber Humic) seemed to do better. I'm pretty sure the problem was underfeeding.[1] This time I'm going stronger (and simpler) by targeting NPK ratio: 1-1-1 (312ppm -- entirely from Grow More Sea Grow. No modifications to the NPK...
