Had a brain fart for new seedlings. At this point they are fragile and susceptible to drown due to over watering.

I have hypodermic syringes and needles. Injecting a small amount of nutes around the developing tap root should expedite root, and therefor plant development

I just came up with an idea to replace air stones for seedling development by combining 2 hydro technologies.

My starter tote is partially set up with a drain that is capped off. I will remove the shut off valve to make way for the pvc inflow to create a low pressure aero system that drains back to a rez. I have most of the parts.

Parts needed; pvc tube plus end cap, a couple low pressure mist heads, high volume low pressure pump and a deep cycle timer as they do not need/want more than 30 second wet cycles (10-15 probably better) and ~ 1-3 minute off cycles

Stay tuned

I added 25ml of EH Root Wizard today in hopes of amping up root development. I need to get the 2 largest out of the bubbler ASAP and into individual totes and under the Amare P3. Moving them will also let me experiment with replacing the stones with low pressure aeroponics. The thing is I need a low height igloo (can't find one) or tote that will hold ~ 3-4 gallons that allows the bulkhead fitting drain back. I saw a tote at HD that might work

I just finished setting up the tent with the Amare P3 (300w) and transferred the 2 that cracked on 5/27

A lesson I learned was t do a wet sans lid to check water/nute level. Lat 2 times I assumed, and we know where that takes us. Those plants were barely getting fed at a crucial time in their development. That said they are doing well, but who's to know how much bigger they might have been

Nutes are NPK Grow and silica + Starwest Botanicals yucca ($8.50/4oz), and Emerald Harvest Root Wizard total @ < 400ppm, pHed ~ 6.0

I mix in a blender then add to the 2 gallons of RO water ~ 11ppm

I still need to add an inline venturi

The last pic is pre moving the 2 largest from the bubbler that is under the Transcendent T5 leds

Plants under the LED t5s were not really taking off, partially due to being too far from the light, while raising the plants up (light fixture is fixed), I decided to change to fresh nutes as well

Seeds cracked around June 4th

Roots look pretty good

I've been foliar spraying 1-3xs/day, ans noticed a lot of yellowing leafs when I shouldn't have any

I wrote to Harley Smith of NPK:

What RAW products and in what ratios, as well as how often do you recommend for a foliar spray...

There are several RAW products that can be used in a foliar spray. My favorites are a combination of RAW Kelp, RAW Full Up and RAW Yucca. Use the low dose on the instructions and spray no more than once a week during veg and early flowering. Once every two or three weeks will still have a noticeable effect on the plant.

Some of the other RAW products can also be used for foliar feeding, but they are usually reserved for treating specific nutrient deficiencies.

Hope this helps!

It occurred to me to flush the individual plants in RO water to clean any salts that might have built up in the coco. I did that yesterday after posting

Resurrection, or surviving a near-death experience

If you compare previous photos you can see that the leafs are no longer drooping and are greening up, plus new leafs popping up, thanks to new roots are beginning to develop

I mean these girls were approaching death, as can be seen with the lower leafs which are dead

It's a tribute to how resourceful these plants are, giving up lower leafs to survive in hopes that the idiot grower will get his shit together
