    AOD2012 - Hey man welcome on board! Most of my grows have had room's PACKED with plant's and it was always a PITA come watering, this has changed everything. Everytime I leave the growroom I'm extremely happy. Nothing better than sitting back and watch them get fed. PM anytime you want bro...share the info...share the knowledge that's what it's all about.

            Bush Dr -

            Bush welcome, and yes I'm loving the plant magic nutes but the plants are loving it even more, I got the hard water selection and it's working well so far. Thank you Bush for getting me into the coco! I should have kicked the soil a long time ago!.

            laylow -

            Hey man, yeah it's hard to tell from the pics, they actually do look like the smaller pots. They seem to be loving the feeding that they are getting, I thought it was a little heavy at the start but they are taking every bit of it up, do you have any hydroton on top of your medium to minimise evaporation? Maybe that's why your feeding less, I'm not sure but that's something that I must get done today, hydroton on top of the coco. I hope you stay around for the grow man, if my plan's go the way I want 'em to we will have a lot of blind ICM members BUD PORN!

            Thank's for the well wishes bro'! I'll do my best. Hope you hang around.

            Ok not much more updating to do, I'm going up to the grow today so I'll get some plant pics and what not.

            Stay Safe, All

                Hi all I'm not long back from the grow and everything is running along smoothly. There was too much flow going to the drippers so I put an in-line tap into the feedline a few inches above the pump. Here's what the taps look like.



                They let me set a flow rate, I'm using a pump for each lamp so I had to make 3 of these, only takes 5 mins. I cut the feed line around 6 inches above the pump, inserted a T-piece, run a few inches of pipe from the T-piece and inserted the tap as shown in the pics below.



                Attach the pump to the end of the feed line and this is the result



                Then it's just a simple little tweeking at the tap until there's enough pressure going to the drippers. Because I went over kill on the pumps I have to keep the taps fully open and even at that each feeding only last's 40 seconds before I've got a lot of run off, which is making my life even harder because I have to find a timer that can go on/off in 40 seconds, any suggestions? I've got a digital timer but it's a nightmare to setup so any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

                The temps were running a little cooler today, hitting 75F but that's exactly where I'd like to keep it well 78 would be ideal, humidity is a little low but I'm not bothered with that because I'm nearly ready to put them into flower, if it stay's below 50% during flower I'll be happy, the air flow in the room is perfect every leaf on the plant's are dancing with joy. Don't mind the beaten up hygrometer she's been through the war's God bless her.



                I have hydroton at the base of my pot's for drainage, it's working great here's some roots popping out the hole's.



                I took a few shot's of the plant's, first off if anyone here has grown Giesel, or The White you may be able to help me out, I'm unsure what this plant is so if ya could throw in your advice that would be great.



                And that concludes the updates, so I'll leave you all with a few plant pics of KarmaTrain and an unknown, either The White or Giesel.




                Be safe out there, wherever you are!

                      The beauty of the cannabis trade is that it, while providing the high risk/reward levels of any profitable illegal business, unlike most other illegal businesses is one that can be done without in any way compromising one's moral standing or principles. The provision of cannabis to the existing market is, almost uniquely among illegal business endeavors, potentially not tainted by the harm it does to others. It can be done in a completely ethical way- even if it isn't always, it can be.

                            Nice update, HGO.

                            Looks like things are coming along nicely. Hmmm, that thermo/hygro looks familiar. I have the same one.

                            Nice call on adding the inline taps. Such a simple device, cheap and does the job its intended to do.
                            I use em on my pumps in my E&F res tanks. I acutally use the one that comes with the pump (it fits onto the riser-which is optional). It gives me more fine control on how fast the table floods, and at what final level the flood reaches.

                            The hydroton layer on the bottom of the coco pots is another good call. But, we gotta get you into a smart pot type container next time. They really do help to encourage root growth (I've been using Earth Juice Aerobags-very inexpensive, but good quality).

                            Curious what you mystery plant is myself. Maybe as she gets a little bigger might be easier to tell.

                            And, you had to throw in the meatballs in red sauce. Now, I got munchies something awful. I married an Italian that doesn't really cook. But, the family get togethers are heaven for an ol' boy like me.

                            Good job, bro.

                              Good to have ya here, coco would be a good move, it's simple just keep it wet basically, it's very hard to overwater in coco, it will hold it's maximum amount of water and the excess will just drain out the bottom very quickly. 2 or 3 waterings a day until you see run off and your onto a winner. The plant's are growing SUPER crazy, kick's soil's ass.

                              BRO! Good to see ya! Haha yeah I need smart pot's although I can't get 'em anywhere over here. I have 30 air-pots laying in the grow house from my previous run, they were a nightmare, they need to be PACKED with soil otherwise you got a pissing waterfall all over your floor. Smartpot's next run, I'll find 'em somewhere.

                              I'm about 85% sure that she is a Giesel, the pic's I've seen of Giesel online seem to have a broad 3 leafed, leaf. That Chem D look. I hope it's her anyhow.

                              I just got some VERY special gift's today from a good soul, an old pack of BlockHead and a pack of [Northern Lights/Leopard Kush]xpure Kush x Blockhead that Krome made, so you know it's gonna be good. I can't wait to pop 'em. I'll send lot's of BlockHead F2's into seedbay for freebies. I'm so lucky!

                              All this weed talk has got me craving for a joint, stash is running low, 2 grams left and no harvest until June LOL Noooooooo

                                Hi all, I couldn't wait to tomorrow for the weekly picture update, I just had to snap some pic's today.

                                Everything is growing really nice and really fast, some of the plant's had a very slight yellowing in some leaves, that has now cleared up and they are all a good deep green.

                                During the week I bought a bottle of rhizotonic, I got 200Ltr's of feed out of it, didn't last long, the root's are looking GREAT, I forgot to take some pic's but I'll do that next week. I am now feeding at 1.4EC, today was their first watering with 1.4EC so I'll have to keep my eye on them to see if they can handle it ok.

                                Anyhow pics speak louder than words so here's some comparison snaps. Have a look at how much they have grown is such little time...
                                .....22 Day's ago..............6 Day's ago


                                .......................... Today ..........................



                                Here are some comparison picture's of cheese.

                                ........6 Day's ago...............Today




                                Here are some comparison picture's of KarmaTrain.

                                ......6 Day's ago..................Today



                                You can clearly see how much they are growing, it's great. I'm feeding them 3 time's a day, they are getting just over 1Ltr per plant, per watering and I'm getting just over 1Ltr run off from 5 plant's. So they are getting over 3Ltr's a day, They are drinking allot. I love the Plant Magic nutes, they are working very well.

                                I'm going to flip them into flower on Friday, tomorrow I'll strip them from the bottom to minimise the popcorn buds.

                                I'm getting good temp's but my humidity is down too low...



                                Here's a few more garden shot's...



                                And that concludes this week's updates, any questions just ask

                                Thanks for checking out my grow.
