Got the others in same pots.fed 600ppm 5.9 ph .checked runoff i know now why i get high ppm is because of the fresh bagged coir that they must ec it to 4-500 this happened at the start so i ran a little extra through its at an acceptable 8-900.it was 9-1000ppm at first.. .i wont water them again till they settle in in a couple days..then i will feed daily in small amounts and see how that goes and when the others get abit more decent i will put them into flower..got a lux meter coming so i can put them right in the G spot..the 4 small ones are ok it all about learning this grow and not so much about how big they get.im just happy to get them through and be healthy is my main concern ...pic

Yeah i put it down to the fresh bag Chem...i got it to 8-900 still high i know ..pot is 14 litre i used 4 litres and got 800 odd runoff so i put another litre through and got it down a little..gave them 600 the other day and 2-300 came out...would you personally say run 2 litres through tomorrow at lights on ..i was just thinking about that they have just been transplanted and didnt want to go too hard on feeding the nxt day.

Heeey...Made a mesh stand for the plants tonite..ive been pulling them out to water and it takes quite awhile for them to drain so this should make it easier...just got to put tray under on an angle to collect at front..i made it too tight and cant get the friggin thing in there...LOL. so i will shorten the legs and get the nxt size up square tube to slide over the shorten legs..girls looked great at lights on..temp has dropped and a spike in humidity.75% temp is only getting to 25.3..felt like a tropical paradise in there.probably why they were looking good..gave them a feed 6-700 ppm and got ppm down between 7-800 now so looking good ph in 5.9 ph out 5.9 bar the biggest which was 6.3 also ppm out was 1-200 lol..shes starving.last 2 feeds have been 6-700 2-300 out 2 days ago so nxt feed i will give her bout 700ml and same ppm again that should b enough .feeding daily now...pics

Brrr.weathers gone back to winter time here in tas which is pretty typical of this place living on a small island weather and temps change daily.sooo im not going to feed them simply because of that.i dont want the roots to get any colder.pots have plenty of moisture to keep them going for quite awhile..3 plants are showing the claw through excess water while 2 others arnt showing any signs .the smallest plant is a male i think..ive thought it is male ages ago..just ugly looking leaves and not very pretty.its not growing very well compared to the others.i would of pulled it ages ago if i had another to take its place....the new screens in there and is tight as a nun ...lost 6 inches in height and lights up near as far as it can go ..it was at 35 inches ive dropped it down to 32 and will see how that goes..cant wait for the lux meter to rock up so i know where i am in the height department. i might flower them in a week and soak some more seeds..with abit of luck by the time these finish flower i should have my seeds from seedsman.....

Your going to have a 2ft stretch (24 inches), so if you have limited space, flip early, you won't produce as much if you grow into your lights. If the plant is male, leave it as long as you can, then take it out and collect the pollen, and bin it. You then have the capacity to produce some free seeds. 🙂

Yes...i think your right chem..i can gain 16 inches if i move them into the flower room and shorten the hanging brackets..its a 5x5 so i can put those 2 tallest furthest away ..rooms not completely setup as i was just going to use the veg room ..i better pull my finger out lol.
I will still use the 315 than the gavita and save some power for when i run more plants..i have better fans in the flower room aswell.they could help them out greatly to cool above the canopy so theres less heat..that screen was built purposely for seedlings and young plants to get them up off the floor..

When I was growing in a 5x5 tent I grew 4 plants from seed to flower, and they filled the tent to bursting, had 6ft all in high. Put the plants you have ready into the flower room and let them flower, then set up your veg for four replacements ready to take over from the others that are in flower, and you've got it made. 👍

Its too small for my android to take a pic but when i put my goggles on (glasses) i can see that they are going to b males.you can see the stem and a pod on the end..its the beginning of the end of them lol.still fed them ..i need to make 2 passive holes wwith some ducting so light dont shine through to the flower room and take the inkbirds out and set them up when lights are off.got to do some sealing the joins in the laminate chipboard .seal the door and put the fresh carbon filter on the fresh fan..shes a 710cfm 8 incher and i will cut 2 6 inch passive holes..that should b plenty..i will get them in there within 7 days..im using these gravity vents..should work pretty well.gee ive got abit to do now i think of it.
