So after that Co2 burner issue, the plants clawed out really hard for about 12 hours so I brought in fresh air. I’ve been running vented since then and the plants are looking great. Today was the first day of flower and tonight when the lights come on I’ll be hooking up all the trolmaster gear my bottled Co2 as well as feeding.

I’ve heard that some folks like to continue with the veg week 3 for the useless formula for the first week of flower as sometimes they stall a bit. If anyone has experience with this I’d love to hear about it.

I dumped the co2 burner and switched to a dual stage bottled gas setup, and have tied everything in the room into a trolmaster setup to keep my VPD dialed and be able to control everything from my phone. Setup was easy and it has alarms for co2 humidity and temp which is great because the first regulator I had was leaking a bit. There at day 10 of flower and I’m running the useless formula week 1 of flower with powerSi and powersi bloom. I’ve been rotating foliar of Dark Energy, Nitrozyme, and Canna Boost. I have to get today and really clean out the underside.

I wanted to correct that I’m actually running at 20 percent stronger than the useless formula. My light are at 75 percent and I increase them 2 percent every day until 100 percent along with co2 at 1400. Will incrementally increase co2 in correlation with the light up to 1500ppm .

I’m starting to get nervous. Just finished day 12 of flower. They have doubled in height and the talked of plants are about 8 inches from my lights and I know 6 inches is recommended. How much more stretch and I going to have. I’ve been keeping night temps less than 5 degrees cooler than day. Lights are at 75% and co2 at 1400ppm. I’ve been doing a foliar every other day of Canna Boost. I’ve also been feeding PowerSi at 1.25ml helper gallon which is supposed to help reduce stretch. I’ve cleaned out the bottom of the front 3 rows of each table and will finish the rest tonight. Have no idea what to do to sleep these down and stop them from hitting the lights . There’s nowhere to train them I don’t have any space left.

😱

Man, I hate to say it but those are gonna grow into the lights. They look to me like theyre gonna stretch another foot or more at the very least.

Here’s a side by side to see the stretch. First day of 12/12 and day 12 of flower they have more than doubled but with extensive lateral branching, much more than I expected.

If you have to test take a look at Decision by New Millenium, it is suppose to stop stretch per the manufacturer. No test try OG flower hardner, it will stop stretch in a couple days.

Im not familiar with that specific product, but it sounds a lot like it has paclobutrazol in it. That shit stops stretch and initiates immediate flowering, and causes cancer. Its a banned PGR in most places. Also very toxic to the liver.

Ha, I was going pretty heavy with a triacontanol in polysorbate 20 only foliar (around 50ppm) every day, and really stripped/gutted then bottom 3/5ths of the plants which seemed to really slow things down a bit. They are about 6 or 7 that are just touching many that are between 2-3 inches and the rest are about 4 inches away. I will be moving the ones touching to she side of the led bars so besides the tip not getting light the rest should be fine. I’m running lights at 85 percent and not seeing any bleaching or burning.
Here’s some pics of the Dosatron setup which runs via solenoids that are connected to the trolmaster setup. Oh and some pics of the plants at day 26 of flower

Haha me too. I may just keep the lights at 85 percent. I can’t imagine they’ll get a whole lot taller it’s day 27 already.
