I’d meant to update this back a week or so ago. This one picture was as far as thing got, so from Day 29 till yesterday (Day 36) will be included as well…
Seeing as the plants took up less than 1/2 gallon of nutrient solution since the previous change, the week before last, I let the reservoir run an additional week without a nutrient change. I can happily report I’m not disappointed in doing so.
Did one last check Monday of last week, then closed up the tent for several days. I always love returning to a garden I’ve not seen for a few days, especially when the growth has been excellent.
From Day 36…
The plant tops have been bent & wired down, the lower branches which were already very active are now in overdrive. I began clipping off lower branches that are now hidden by the bend (they are usually then used as cuttings), concentrating on leaving only 6 – 8 of the biggest/strongest looking branches to train into tops.
Thus far, I could not ask for an easier grow. I’ve only done 3 reservoir changes (including yesterday), and have not even fretted about checking pH and the plants show no signs of even having to! The key to a good grow is balance, and the Bubbleponics set-up and the Advanced Nutrients “Sensi” line are really working well in conjunction with the lighting. On the subject of lighting, I can soundly say the Pro-Grow 180 is “kicking vegetative & rooting ass”! Granted, we’re in a 3′ x 2′ area, but you could efficiently saturate a larger 3′ x 3′ area (for blooming), and 4′ x 4’+ (for vegetation stage), no problem!
Check back soon! We’ll officially start bloom next week.
