Yes, Sir! Every other res change I will drain, fill with fresh water, and run it for one night. The next night it is back to feeding as usual.

No OD for this year. I want to have more of a life than just growing all the time. I might put one or two pets out there.

Thanks for the response. One more question do you always ph your res to 5.5 before every feeding or do you let it rise during the week. Thanks man btw what are the dimensions of your room.

I ph to about 5.8 and adjust it back down during the week when it goes above 6.3. Roughly 10x16

My room is the same size on the outside so on the inside it's 15'6" x 9'6" ... Your room looks very nice. I have been setting it at 5.5 everyday before I feed. Should I let it rise or am I good with what I'm doing. I'm getting some rust spots on some of my skywalker og and it seems to be the ones directly under the lights. I'm not seeing any heat stress so I'm thinking it's because of the ph and I am wondering if feed at 5.8-5.9 it might help. What do you think?

I found mold on a cuple of tops tonight. I went through and cut off all the big tops, they still have about a week and a half left to go. At least the secondaries can beef up and ripen. All I cut down were the SnS. The pics are in the " Before and After" format, so to speak.

hey Mendo,

how often are you feeding them and for how long. Towards the end do you cut back on the feeding frequency as well?

I'm also having some bud rot issues. Seems like no matter how much I cut/chop off more tops are infected each day. Seems like a losing battle. Im running GDP and about to do a quick flush and chop before I end up with nothing this run.

I water 4 times a night(their day). The first feeding is 2 minutes, every other is one minute. When the mold comes in, it's there. I always cut off all of my big top, so long as it is within 2 weeks of harvest, if I find mold on more than one top. I'd rather harvest slightly preemy buds than have it ripe, rotten and tossed over the hill side. I'll leave the secondaries to ripen. That is flushed or not. When they gotta go, they gotta go. I hope you get some out. Thanks for coming by.

I have not had time to read but a post here and there. The girls looks AMAZING. You gave me an idea to go get more 2x4 trays and doing a top feed. I am not a pro like you with rockwool and top drip. But I would love if you made a pit stop one thread I made not long ago.

Cant think about having buds so big that it rots while it grows. Then again this is the 1st time i am trying a sealed room like others.

The room was cut on Thursday, cleaned yesterday, and replanted today. Most of the herbs are still drying, so there is no final weight yet. The 4x8 and 2x4 on the right are Sky walker OG. The back 4x4's, the center 2x4 and left 2x4 are filled with Cheese Quake. (there are 2 tester Super Silver Haze in the left 2x4). And the left 4x8 is all Grape Ape,aside from 4 Hash Plant(testers).

Props for the nice crop Mendo. I'm working on a project that closely resembles your room.
