Aren't you growing this outdoors? Maybe I'm confused with someone else.

Looking good. Tiny bit of nute burn at the tips, but nothing to worry about.

Smell like oranges yet?

It def smells like something. It hasn't occurred to me to analyze the smell yet. But next time I go out there I'm going to try to identify different smells. Can I ask something unrelated real quick? I've got this old blurple led that's about 5 years old 150 actual watts and a LeFreshinsoft 100 actual watts that puts out double the ppfd with a much better spread. The spectrum on the blurple is not too high in red either. I ordered another LeFreshinsoft and was going to replace the blurple with it, then use the blurple in the veg area. Instead of the little led light strips in using now. They said 65w but that's not actual watts. There's 5 of them. Would it be more beneficial to use the blurple to veg other plants or to leave it in the flowering tent with the other 2 LeFreshinsoft? I know that's a lot, thanks for reading. I could prob make a post for this too?

There are different phenotypes of WW depending on source, but I've always gotten limonene terps in mine. Unmistakable.

Not familiar with that light, had to look it up. Is this it?


As far as multiple posts go, this is your thread you can put what you want to in it. If you look at any of the long grow threads, the topics are all over the place.

In general, I do not like blurple. But I also spend way too much money on this hobby, so I am a bad one to give advice on the $59 lights. Blue and Reds impact plant morphology differently, and you can steer the plant to be tall or short to some extent with the spectrum you give it. Believe it or not, Green is also great for cannabis, it actually penetrates the leaf cells deeper and activates photosynthesis you would miss if you don't have those photons. Blurple is pretty much zero green, and some amount of red and blue, but those amounts are not predictable on very cheap lights. That said, if you can benefit from more photons and the temps are not too high, go ahead and put them in next to your full spectrum lights. All things being equal, higher PPFD > perfect spectrum.

Just to add to the great info above next grow bump up the K near the middle of flower if you can…. Its not a must but it will improve the results a bit… thats the scorching you see at the tips and working its way around the serrations. It may have a bit to do with transpiration but if i had to guess more so nutrient ratio

Could you recommend a product with higher K but little else? I went and checked but none of the ff nutrients I have are high in k. I bought the 3 powdered ones for flower but they're 5-45-19, 9-50-10, and 0-50-30. Nutrient schedule has me using the 9-50-10 the last 4 weeks. Someone had previously told me ww loves P and K in flower so I've been adding about half extra.

On Amazon when I bought the light there were 2 modles to choose from. The one you just shared and another for $70. I got the $70 one. I actually never thought about the extra heat another light would cause. Right now with lights on it runs around 72-75. If I turn the dehumidifier down the temps go down a bit though. I'll have to see if it can handle the heat. You think this will be good for these seedlings, for a month?

Potassium sulfate is good option mid to late flower for both the potassium and sulfur. You will find in in products like floralicious which would be a great option imo

The fact that the blurple is higher wattage but lower PPFD means that it is producing more heat than the newer lights, just be careful.

I think seedlings under the LEDs you have there seems reasonable. Is it working OK now?

So I don't need to make new posts? If I post in this thread it'll still be seen by people that sort by new replies. I can just keep asking questions in here?

I put in the new light, I fucking love it. When I used the photone app I was getting readings in the 600-800 range, all around the plants. Does that fan hanging there look okay or maybe too close to the plants? It's on low and it's a small fan, it's not flipping a bunch of leaves or anything. Just one, the closest leaf. Would it be better if I put it underneath pointing up like the other fan?

Roots has a Terp Tea that's 0.5-6-18. It can be used dry or as a tea.

It does seem to be working okay. The first day there looked to be a bit of stretching on one of them, but it seems to slow down. I'm glad to hear that it should be okay. I've got all 3 lights in the main tent and I like it that way. Someone on reddit told me to ditch the blurple period, that's its providing nothing of benefit. But I know that's not right.
