It seems like a good thing. The plants respond almost right away to it. I was surprised it was such a small amount per gal. at .25 teaspoon per gallon a bottle will last me a long time. I was told to use it every other watering.

Day 34 Trimmed off 4 major fan leaves off each plant that were blocking light to the lower canopy. Then I gave them a light foliar feed with water and superthrive .
Tomorrow I plan on trimming the two bottom nodes and tying em down a bit .
Looking healthy, bro!
Thanks MaryJaneMaster :)

Day 42 . Today was the first day of flowering . I watered with a moderated dose of Armor Si . Raised the light on the canopy to 18 inches and turned up the light to 81. Now I have reduced its total light it receives Ill increase my PPFD . Ill do that by raising the light power 1 every two days for the next 40 days . I also will no longer be using any superthrive in the water. I read somewhere it has hormones that will cause stretching in the flowering of cannabis .

That Superthrive statement has me thinking.....I believe the hormone you speak of us for root development.....not any pgrs or stuff like that....I went down a 🕳 looking into Superthrive pros and cons.....I'll see if I can find it again.....it mentioned most ingredients, but also said some were not included....special ingredients?

Yeah im not sure whats in there Bilber. It just something I been using with success for last 30 + yrs. There are 3 kinds of superthrive. Ive always used the original formula. I dont use it as the directions say. I only add one drop or two at most per gal and I only add it during the vegging.. I found this quote on and earlier post. " Superthrive contains synthetic Auxins, including NAA (1-naphthaleneacetic acid), which is not effective for leaf feeding. However, the roots benefit greatly from these synthetic auxins, allowing them to develop bigger and more robust root systems. This, in turn, leads to larger and healthier plants overall that can also boast bigger and hardier buds come harvest time. It's best to use synthetic auxins on the roots if you don't want your plant to stretch too much; however, those who enjoy stretchy plants may find foliar applications of auxins beneficial."

That's pretty much what I found.....the article I read that I'm referring to was from the company themselves....but in essence, it reads the same.....another article I found says it's garbage....I use it for clone dipping....I cut the clone and put it in Superthrive solution until I'm ready to transplant....

I like using it for clones....does it work? I'll take my chances......

Day 51 The plants all sexed and I was left with 3 females and 2 males. I kept the Banana Coffee male to breed with and reduced it to a single stalk. So now I have two Fruit Tella females and a Banana Coffee female along with male. It thinned the tent out alot and I have room for the flowers now. Aslo I trimmed out all the under growth, today was Recharge day and I gave them a watering of that.
