Sad day:(

Last night I was adjusting the soft ties on my mainline in progress and I snapped off both grow tips on one side

One came off completely and the other one was just hanging on

I am currently trying to nurse that one back to life, but it probably wont make it

Plant was about to get its 3rd and final toping

Not sure what to do now

I haven't updated in awhile

I managed to save one growth tip on the broken side

I topped it twice to give me 4 mains on that side

It made the veg last longer than planned 52 days  but everything is looking good now

Today I cleaned up some of the lower growth tips / branches should have done it earlier they were about 6" tall

My little 2'x2.5' tent is filling up fast plants are loving the auto water 5x a day

I plan on leaving them alone for a few days then a little clean up and training then hands off

Everything is moving along nicely the canopy is filling in, humidity is increasing as a result.Growing in cold weather I have been trying to keep temps up above 75 (lights on) while running the exhaust at a level to keep RH around 55%. As the plant grows so does the humidity so more exhaust = lower temps . Basically trying not to spend a fortune to heat my pole barn ( 73 lights on 68 lights off) all winter. I might try moving a tiny electric heater in to the tent, or try preheating the intake air. I will figure it out

Power outage yesterday 🙁

Lost about 8 hours of lights on time.

Temperature dropped to 58 and i had to open up the temp to keep humidity down

Hand watered twice no fun

Everything looks good today, hopefully no harm done

Its been a minute

The baby is growing, up its fun to watch

Moved to mid bloom nutes 1325 EC seems happy

I got a bit lazy checking my outflow EC it was at 1750

I gave her an extra watering and increased the duration from 55 to 60 5x a day I will be less lazy

I removed some some lower growth tips/branches about a week ago will do that sooner next time

Today I removed a few leaves that were overlapping

I am really enjoying this grow

HIGH RUNOFF EC

I hand watered for the first time in weeks and my runoff EC was 2000

I thought  Iwas good but I was not my auto water runoff was 1580 input was 1320

I promptly ran 2 gallons at 1320 through by hand brought down the EC to 1600

It seems that I need to hand water more:( I will start with 1 gallon 2x a week

Hopefully that will do it

The baby monster seems unfazed

Burnt Tips

Cannabis Grow IMG 0232

Showed up about 10 days ago

I am assuming this is from that high EC I discovered when hand watering

I am back to hand watering 1x a week and have increased the duration of my auto water 5x a day

Flowers seems to be stacking up

About a month to go 10-12 week flower

Burnt tips and canoeing

Cannabis Grow IMG 0244

Leaves are looking less and less happy

I am transitioning into the second  phase of late bloom nutes EC around 1375 PH 6.0

I did an extra hand water today 1 gal at 1250 EC came out 1525

Not sure what is causing the curl maybe its low humidity 30 % for 15 min while having the tent open to hand water

its really low RH right now I have been keeping the tent between 49 and 54 %

Update The verdict was heat/light stress  

After some advice from the friendly folks on the forum I decided to move my light up to 20" and turned down to 90%

Hoping the poor leaves recover

About 3- 4 weeks to harvest

What i learned /what to do different next time

Buffer coco even if its pre-buffered roots coco palms to avoid mag deficiency

Increase light sooner in veg

Air pot 1 gal 2nd container= easier transplant to final ...hopefully

Lollipop more at end of veg/ less pruning during flower

LST be careful with growth tips don't break them off when mainline training:(

Kool Bloom go easy on bloom nutes to avoid burnt tips

SF2000 raise / dim slightly to avoid heat stress

Looking forward to doing it better next time

HARVEST 

100g /3.6 oz of finely trimmed and dried buds and a nice pin ball of pressed bubble hash
