Blue Mystic "D" day 29 in bubbles

From Day 29 - Growth above and below the lid is beginning to quicken up.

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…

Sticky, sweet-smelling sublime bud!

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…

Now in the 9" - 12" zone, they are ready for some LST and light pruning

Ready to LST today, then prune back hidden undergrowth in a day or two.

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.
