It's going to be a slow start with these clones, although they rooted in eight days.
Flower room size is a 4x6x8ft sealed room
Rockwool grow from 2inch to 4 inch and finall resting place is a uni-slab
She is a 80% Indica mixed with 20% sativa cherry Pie x Girl Scout Cookies x OG Kush

These clones have recently rooted and are now in beging stages of vegative stage
This is almost a 17 gallon 64litter toat that is feeding the nutrient mixture to the plants. The ph of resivor will stay at 5.5 with 0.5ec
The temprature of the resevor depends on the time of the day and season. It fluctuates from 76f to 85f in summer and 69f to 75f in winter
The resivor has a pump that takes the feeding through flex pipes to the plant. At the end of the flex pipe i have connectors that devide the nutrients in two smaller tubes and gets taken to the plants.
During summer I use AC to cool the room down. In winter just normal outside air exchange.
The room temp stays around 84f when lights are on. I try to aim for a 80f/26c leaf temp
The humidity varies during the process of the plant. I aim for 70% in veg and 50% during flower
In flower the pump is setup to a timer that feeds the plants every hour for one minute. At 12pm it gets a 5 min flush. During veggative stage and since the plant is small and on a 4inch rw cube. I feed it everytime i feel the rw is running less moist. Usually every few days i water it. This is to ensure that root development continues.
Mega Crop 2 parts is used for base line nutrients. I also use potassium silicate, power Si, Fluvic acid, H2o2 and Terpinator.
Currently the plant goes through sieries of lights before getting under the actual lights. Currently using a Mars Hydro TS-1000 for veggative stage. I dropped the intensity down and put the clones under the mother so it is mostly coverd. Main flower room will have two lights daisy chained to 700w


Here are the clones that will be going into the flower room once the current harvest is completed. These are feminized pseeds

Here is the mother that was grown from seed. She is currently in a 1 gallon pot. I use ProMix HP for all my mother plants. The clones i taken are the two main branches that was growing tall.

Last night I prepared a mixture to pre-soak the 4 inch rockwools. This is how i prepare my mixture for rockwool.
My tap water is like RO and has 0EC with ph around 7.4/8 depending on the time and season.
I added 1ml of pottasium silicate into a cup of water and mixed it for few minutes. Than i added the cup of water to 2 gallon of water that was in the bucket.
Once everything is mixed for few minutes than I ph adjusted to 6.5 before adding any nutrients. I use mega crop two parts nutrients. 2 grams of Part A and 2.5grams of part B. Each part is mixed for 5 min
Part A consist of the following nutrients: (N)(NO3)(P)(K)(Mg)(CA)(S)(Fe)(Zn)(B)(Mn)(Cu)(Mo)(Si)
Part B consist of the following nutrients: (N)(NO3)(NH4)(Ca)
Once my nutrients are added than I ph adjust to 5.5
I add 1ml of fluvic acid and mixed it for few minutes
After fluvic acid I add 5ml of h2o2 and finally the two part enzyme.
Once everything is mixed together I dropped the two 4inch rockwools into the water and this morning i took the rw out and dropped in the 1 inch rockwools into the hole of the 4 inch.

Happy saturday farmers!
This morning i did a syrange test and the ph was at 6.3 hence why the clones arn't looking good.
I ran 1 gallon between each 4inch rockwool to bring the ph back in range. I assume that he ph rise has to do with my ratios of using silicate.
normally i don't have any deffeciency in veggative and i think i will stop giving it silicate until they go into flower.

On a good note, we have roots coming out from the bottom of rw

The roots finally started showing at the bottom of the rockwool so i decided to clean the flower room and take these wedding cake girls into the room.
They don't look the best at the moment as I've hit some issues few weeks ago. Pest, high PH, vpd, and overall wrong measurements calculations on feeding.
The girls are off to a better start now since I've hit them with some safer's end all and after a week of fixing my calculation the rockwools are now properly holding ph at 5.7. The EC in rw is at 0.5. I have refilled the main revisor which the timers are set for the pumps. In couple weeks these girls should start taking off.
