The majority hit 6 weeks Sunday, there's 4 that are about a month or so older. I was going for an 8 week veg but I won't have room unless I cull some. Then I'm still not sure if I will have room for 2 more weeks So here is some pics with and with out the ones I want to get rid of for opinions. It's difficult to scrap 2 of the 5. One is white widow other is GSC. I think they stayed somewhat root bound because they never took off after transplant. They're healthy other than being leggy. One is a clone I'm not sure is worth the time. One is a test plant that will have to be topped or lst so it won't grow into the lights. And lst on this one will take a lot of room. The single pics are of the white widow and gsc for opinions if they will be worth the time. And the test plant, last pic. And yes, there's 2 thats over due for some fish shit.

So I got busy last week and didn't get to prune when I wanted. Sunday is 8 weeks. Is a week long enough for them to recover after lollipopping before flipping? Or do I need to go 2 weeks

How far up do I need to lollipop. I've read where you don't want to leave any more than 4 nodes. I've already pruned a good bit but there's still a lot left to take it down to 4 nodes.

Awesome! On the bag it says 1 tea spoon per gal of medium every week. Go for a Tablespoom per gal of soil instead so you can get a full month without having to top dress more. On a 5 gal pot I might do 4 tablespoons it all depends but I’ve yet to burn my plants doing full strength. The tablespoon per gal method gives you about a solid month of feeding. Top dress at around week 4 and ride it till harvest! Also remember autos don’t need as much so maybe try 2 Tablespoons per gal on a 3 gal pot instead of the full strength. Your gonna love the terp tea man I’m telling you! Just harvested this grape gas using that nutrient line. View attachment 1230975
So you only top dress and don't make any teas out of it?

I only use nutrient teas as needed If I see a deficiency or if I think they need a boost. I’ve never burned my plants by top dressing but have burned them with a tea before. I make compost teas not nutrient/compost teas for the microbes.

With it already having 8% Ca and 1% MG, do you still work calmag in with your watering? Or add any other source for micro nutes? Other than kelp

Yes I still use the roots organics cal mag. Depending on strain I’ll adjust as needed but usually I’ll try to just do the min dose of 5ml per gal but have use 10ml and even yo to the full dose which is 15ml in early flower. Recently I’ve been experimenting with my tap water which has 250-300 ppms and have not needed to supplement with CalMag.

I forgot to mention around the halfway point of flower I switch over to 2 grams per gal of epsom salt for Mag/Sulfur

I've been using tap water this whole grow. The last has deficiencies but I'm still adding a little calmag to be safe. Would like to know the results for sure

Do you know how many ppms are coming out of your tap?

6" scrog nets absolutely suck. Half can't tuck because squares are too big. Is it BTI for fungus gnats @ComfortablyNumb ? My soil is drying out every 2 days and still can't get rid of them fuckers. Been soaking the medium with PT when I spray. I'm fixing to increase the dose. Website actually says you can do up to 2 oz/gal and an extra oz of alcohol for bad infestation. Mines not this case though. Just being a pain

So trying to dial in my watering. Here both of these pots are advertised as 3gal fabric pots. The brown is clearly bigger. I watered in 9 plants of the black pots. I'm guessing 2.5 gal pot at most. I've ran 6.5 gallons of solution and got 1.6 gallons of runoff over 2 hour period roughly being just under a 1/4 gallon runoff per pot. Does this seem about right being that it's barely a 2.5 gallon pot? The bigger brown pots will take a full gallon of water and have proper runoff hand watering.
