I'm having issues with yellowing as you see. I can only assume it is the led intensity?

It looks like they're starving so, I backed off the light, dropped it to 25% and upped the nutes, added Fulvic and foliar fed with Mg.

With the LEDs @ 25% the temps have dropped a few degrees.

Any thoughts?
Increase epsom and calc nit


There may be a light at the end of the tunnel for first babies.

The PH on res1 and 2 drifts higher from 5.9 to 6.2 every 24 hours. No more snot though.

Gave 1/2 a new GH air pump, and moved the other air pump to new babies.
Have you tried a little lower around 5.5ph?


After reading Dr. Bugbee's published research on the subject which states 'Calcium is a slow uptake nutrient and has the potential to build and cause an imbalance and lockout'.

I got anxious and changed out 90 gallons. I impressed myself with my off the cuff calculations for ppm levels and came out to a perfect 575 ppm.

I also wanted to thank @ninjadip for recommending this:

I haven't set it up yet but it looks great sitting on the floor...

I added 240 watt QB on one side and a King LED, KP2000

I may be imagining it but the frost seems more prominent under it.
K the top device is dope...


Lol. Thanks. The TARDIS is the mother tent. The plants just said fkit and grew past the light . The aero manifold is on the way so I'll be cutting all the tops off. " I bit off more than I can grow" ha!


I haven't read through this thread, I searched TPS billions and this came up. I just wanted to ask what you thought about it. It seems like it's got 3 great beneficials in it.
