I based this grow off of a former tutorial he had posted at OG. I modified it a bit but it was his idea. Credits due to him, thanks man! I've grow outdoors for several years, this is my first attempt at an indoor hydro DWC garden. And honestly so far it is was easier than I expected it to be when I first started researching it. The growth and bud size is phenonimal. I love the huge root ball taking up a hole 5 gallon bucket, very cool! I did some Lst on them without any strings, just bending. This is day 31 of flower.
This is a shot of a Pot of gold Top, I have two plants with roughly 20 really nice colas 8-14" in length and multiple smaller shoots with lil nugs on them.
Super Silver Haze top. Can you see what I think is Calcium defecincy? I'm not sure how I got it. I'm using GH 3 part nutes mixing about 3/4 strength. There's calcuim in the Micro so I don't understand why the plant isn't absorbing it. Any ideas? PPM currently at 940, Water temps have been 68-72 Air temps for 60's lights out to 86 with them on. Ph ranges from 5.2 to 5.9. 20 inch fan blowing on them, 440 cfm can fan, 1000 watt hortilux hydro farm 6" vented hood. I also have 4 40 watt cool white tubes level with the HPS and three 100 watt cfls in there giving some side light. I wasn't sure about using them, but It looks like they are helping to fatten up the outer buds a bit.
Side shot of the SSH plant, she looks so sweet, she has 13 real nice colas 8-16" long and many smaller stems with nugs on them.
This is a partial shot over the tops of the two Pot of gold plants I have. They are just now starting to show early signs of calcium defecincy. Is it too late to try and help these 3 girls out?
I need to learn a bit more about harvesting, I'm not sure exactly how to judge and if you harvest different strains at different times. How long do you think they have to go? What kind of yield do you think I'd get off of these sweethearts?
Blaze your the man! Thanks a bunch!
