Lost my vertginity, now straight to bondage

Hey folks

My last grow was my first go round with a vertical bulb and a donut. It did ok but it was my first grow in a while and I had more issues than I ever did in the past.

That being said, I did get to the finish line and got some great bud, just not as much as I had hoped to get.

I am on a mother hunt, looking for 2-3 keepers. I always prefer less but bigger plants but thats not conducive to a pheno hunt. My last run was Raskals WiFi, SLH, Chocolope and GHS Cheese.

I kept both Wifi phenos and 2 SLH phenos. Right now while waiting on some other seedlings, I decided to do a vscrog with 3 WiFi and a SLH.

I skipped all the fluff and we jump straight to about 2-2.5 weeks flower.

I am using the pvc and netting scrog method with inspiration coming from a few threads that I saw here from KitKat, itchabod crane and marlo.

Its my first scrog so I probably didnt get it exactly how it should be but its all about learning right.

They are in 7gal pots under a 600W in a 5x5 tent. I am using mild nute mix of GH Flora (semi Lucas formula), calmag, bio root and pro-silicate.

The goal here is for 4 zips per plant.

now for some pics.

I am having trouble watering to runoff as the pots are pretty big and being they are all ties down, I cant exactly lift the pots to drain the saucers.

I think this is causing a bit of nute buildup that is giving me some minor leaf curl on the WiFi but a bit worse on the SLH.

From the seed run, the WiFi went 10 weeks and this SLH pheno was about 12. It would be nice to knock a bit of time off them this go round but it is what it is. The SLH hates nutes and the Wifi loves them so its a bit of a guessing game at the moment.

I am thinking that I should just give plain water every 3rd or 4th feeding to prevent buildup.

I am growing in promix HP just for the record.

Looking nice!! I love SLH. First strain I tried that actually tasted like the name. Mine is ready at eight weeks most of the time, sometimes nine. I have taken a plant or two to ten weeks also. I run it both hydro and dirt, and I think it always comes out better in dirt. Definetly a great plant for vert.

I have a 9 week pheno leaning heavy on the lemon skunk side and then this 12 weeker that is much more on the SSH side. It has a very peppery/spicy smell throughout but after a nice cure it does have a bit of a lemon twang too it too. I am thinking the terpenes will develop better at 12 weeks as I cut the last run at 10 weeks.

Nice set up dude. I'm looking forward to seeing some phat juicy buds.

Hey, you could suck the runoff out of the saucers with a large syringe or a vacuum pump if you've got one.

I do have a large syringe that I use when I do get run off. Last night I gave 2 of them just plain water and Im going to try that every 3-4 feedings to see if it helps.

I gave a good trim on the bottom but I still need to trim more up top as its getting ab it crowded with feeder branches. I dont want to hurt my yeild but I dont want a mess either.

Live and learn. Im sure future scrogs will improve my technique.

Put about 1 inch of NAPA floor dry on the top of your pots. It will turn tan when wet and white when dry. That way you can tell if the pots are wet or not. The roots love the floor dry. Don't use another floor dry as they are not all the same stuff.

I have never grown in promix so can't give any help with that. I run coco and it is super easy to use. At least for me. I run a 5 gal bag of coco and can get a pound plant in it. It has to be watered every day though or you risk loosing the plant.

I have a soil moisture meter that I use to tell when the pots are dry. IT seems to work fairly well, I just concerned with salt build up being that I am not getting a lot of runoff if any at all.

You don't need run off in promix, it's designed around having a wet dry cycle. If you are seeing signs of overfeeding you either need to back off on the nutes, or like you thought give plain ph'd water every third or forth feeding. Looks like you're on your way though Subbed
