Run-off EC is locked-in at 1150, very happy w/ EC consistency -- having properly prepared coco with auto-fertigation makes all the difference; I'm still seeing just a bit of burn on the very tips of some fan leaves; I did get greedy and remove some leaves at early flower, so maybe it's just recovery/stress -- keeping a careful eye; infow pH has consistently been 5.7 since mid-veg; also watching for those son-of-a-bitching spider mites (so far, I can't spot any -- 2 Neem oil treatments -- still waiting for ladybugs from my local garden market; getting ready to be out of town for 4-days for work, so nute batches are more frequent, in prepartion for more reservoir volume; i did notice some "siphon effect" halo leakage when the res is around the 8-9 gallon mark (of a total size of 13 gallons); easy fix was to drill a small hole at the highest point of the vinyl tubing (inside the reservoir), which completely and immediately fixed my leakage problem; all else good -- i really do want a lower "up fan" but there isn't enough room -- tent is packed; definitely need a 3x3 -- i cannot even train plants beyond trellising them.

Was in Vegas for work the past 5 days; auto-system was a life saver; run-off EC consistently 1200; moved to mid-Bloom nute mix; increased LED dimmer to 60%; pom poms are busting; no signs of spider mites, but just ordered some beneficial ladybugs as a proactive measure; everything looking good and on-track.

It's been 75 days now. A few more days of Mid-bloom and I'm moving to Late bloom nutes; Everything looking solid; yellowing on tips is getting no worse and is gone on newer leaves; drainage EC is consistently 1300, inflow pH consistently 5.7-5.9; I stopped using Rain (too much product foam); back to micro-dosing Yucca powder with a baby spoon (literally); PPF is 386 - dimming mode is 60%; no signs of those sonfabitching spider mites (fingers crossed), I have lady bugs on order, be here soon.

Outflow EC consistently 1300; installed some yoyos, will probably need more; a little less than 4 weeks or so to harvest; lady bugs will be here on May 22nd; moved to Late Bloom this morning after draining and cleaning my reservoir; everything looking good.

The run-off EC of my garden is still locked-in at 1300; inflow pH remains 5.7; I've increased the dimmer to 80%; continued fertigation (increased time from 15secs to 22.5 secs per interval, five times per day); using Late Bloom nute schedule; I released around a dozen ladybugs in my grow tent to protect my growing buds from any pests; added more yoyos to support the weight of growing colas and buds; roughly two weeks to harvest -- home stretch.

P.S.  to the sysadmin on the CFC website, I had to scroll through 14 pages of "call girl" posts to get here; please address your spam issue.

Today marks 60-days from the flip/start of flowering; Day 6 of Ripening; inflow EC is 800, outflow EC is 800; will increase inflow EC (target outflow is 950 during ripening); one of the clones (big foot glue) is ready for harvest today; the other strain (Lemon Cake) calls for 67-72 days from flower; will wait until 68 days before harvesting; hopefully the Big Foot Glue will not be "over ripened" (is that a thing)?
