Nov 20, It looks like they are around 4 weeks in flower. Yesterday I fed them 5mlmicro/5grow/10bloom/5koolbloom + 3ml up...The run off gave me a ph at 6.50 and a ppm of 1175....I think its a bit high in ppm because of 2 feeds in 6 days...She is going through a lot of water.

I'll saturate the soil very well on my next water and let her sit in the runoff and suck up as much water as she wants...maybe I can get an extra day between giving her liquids.
Nov 22 She was dry again this morning. I gave her 1..5 gallons of water and shes sitting in the runoff. I'll suck up anything she doesn't want tonight.

I have 4 other Bubble Bomb girls flowering under a 1000w hps. 2 of them I flipped the same day as this BB under the SE3000 ( about a month ago.) and she is keeping up with 2 under my hps.. I have 2 I flipped 2 weeks ago I kept in veg 2 weeks longer they'll both be nice large bushes when they're done.

Nov 24 not much change in day to day observations,

I gave her 1.5 gallons of water with epsom salts and I let her sit in the runoff. When I put them to bed at night she had sucked up most of the runoff with only a small bit left. I normally feed or water this 3 gallon pot with 1 gallon of liquid.

This time I gave her 1.5 gallons and she took 99% of it. This will help me extend the time between feeds by at least a day if I continue doing that. I normally suck up all of the runoff in my wet/vac to help keep the humidity down but with only this 1 plant in this space it's not such an issue

Nov 27...There's a new problem I'm linking to too much Epsom salts. I've never had this problem but it is the only addition to my grow that I'm suspicious of. The leaves are yellowing and turning red in the center with very tough stems. not brittle but real hard to snap off.

I fed today 5/5/10/5 + 3ml up ph 6.71 & ppm 1400 I'm going do back to back watering to see if I can get it healthy again.

Dec 1 She took a hit but it looks like she's still growing. I cut off a number of dead and dying leaves and the rest of them look okay, a bit washed of color but not fading any more. NO more Epsom Salts for me, it is the only thing I did different to this plant and I obviously didn't need it...oh well live and learn. I watered heavily again today and sucked up all the runoff

Dec 5 update. I watered her with my 120 ppm well water straight....no Epsom salts. The leaves are still fading but the flowers look good, they are holding up against thier hps flowering twins. I also dropped the intensity to 85% on the dial but there is not much in lux reading drop from 100% - 85%. I just dialed it down until I saw a slight drop in intensity.

1100 ppm & 6.45 ph

Dec 7......6 weeks in flower she's still has fading leaves but the buds are swelling and looking to be out sizing her twins under the 1000hps.
She's dry again and I just gave her a small drink tonight until I soak her tomorrow am.

Dec 11 I missed lights out tonight so blurry pics. I cut back the light again to 80% but the damage is done most leaves are failing fast.. The buds are swelling & seem harder than the buds on her twins. I'm thinking that a couple of days past 7 weeks in flower I'm going to cut back to 60% maybe less and extend the timer to 18 hrs. for the last 7 - 10 days.

Dec 15, I turned down the intensity to 60% I'm going 18hrs with them this Sat. That will be 8 weeks in flower, The last time I grew these Bubble Bomb they went 9 1/2 weeks. I have the light 18" from the top of these buds and I get a lux reading of 25,000 - 30, 000 lux. I may drop that down a bit more Sat to a high of 25,000. I see that I cooked the leaves but I'll get better with the next plants I have ready to go as soon as this girl is done.

I like the light...I just have to learn how to grow better with it. Still not bad after my first grow with led lights.

Seedlings are 4 Tangie 99 & 2 Frankenstein and a surviving Bubble Bomb clone with a Jamaian / Purple Haze at 5 weeks in veg

I had a Grand Daddy Purp do the same thing earlier in the year, never did get to the bottom of it as I had a whole tent full of other healthies...wondering if it's some kind of phosphorous issue?...also I thought maybe molybdum issue back then...I limped it along until the end like your doing lol

With the GDP it was neglect I had too many going and I under fed,over watered,dried out, didn't transplant on time. Once I got my numbers down and I started looking after them they all perked up. Specially after I topped them It just seemed to make them stop and heel. IDK I'm a topping nut and I see good things happen when I pinch the tops off...( it may be all in my mind)

Dec 18........ 8 weeks in flower today, I'll look closer at the trichomes in the am. The last BB I grew went for 9.5 weeks but I didn't fry their leaves. I pulled a twin from my hps flower room at 8 weeks today as well, healthier leaves and more frost on the sugar leaves. I'll have to dial down the driver on my next run.

I have the candidates for the next grow rounded up Tangie 99.& Frankenstein I'm also taking cuttings from an Interstate Dragon a Jam/Purple Haze & a Granddaddy Purple. before Ii flip them over the next week or 2.

Dec 19th 8 weeks yesterday..it will still be another week +
Dec 21 Day 60 in since flip to 12/12 they're fattening up nicely. I dialed down the dimmer to around 60% giving me a lux of 23,000 - 25,000.

I was going to go back to 18hrs on but after watching another vid doing exactly the opposite and cutting back to only 10 on I just left it on for 12hrs. Too many ways to screw with a good grow....If everything is going well don't do something stupid and fk it up !

Dec 24th Christmas Eve Merry Christmas to you all. I'm hoping you can find some peace through this stressful time of the year year. We've been locked out of our family Christmas diner because we make 13 and the allowable is 10 people, same as last year. We are not able to see the whole family together because our government says it is illegal again....Ah yes for our own good...

9 weeks tomorrow They're still not done yet..another week maybe...I gave them another drink today with O - ppm water. light is at 60% 25,000 lux max.
