TrichomeJim Auto #4 True Blue OG

Germinated my usual way, 24 hour soak followed by 24 hours in paper towel inside an old DVD case placed on top of my router after 24 hours I usually have 1/2 inch root.The seed is the placed into a rapid rooter plug and left in the dark until the head pokes up. I have had 100% germ rate for the last 3 grows.

Here is the new seedling on day 3 after the head poking above the plug and seeing a tail comi g out of the bottom.

Transplanted into 2 gallon smart pot that was ph'd with tap water @5.7 . I then fertigated at 600ec, I plan on using the autopot with this one as an experiment on whether I should buy another module.

Growth has been slow last few days since the transplant,  I chalk it up to the coco being too moist.

I have let it dry out a touch and it has begun to bounce back and hit its stride now, it has roots penetrating the bottom of the 2 gallon smart pot. I plan on having this one in my new autopot once I know it has fully recovered from the transplant.  I may not top this plant we will have to see how vigorously it begins growing once the auto pot is in place.

I have been fertigating every other day at an ec of 700 ph of 5.8 until I see runoff . Today I increased my ec to 800 using the mix below

4ml magnifical,2ml grow,2ml micro, 2ml bloom, 2ml ph down per gallon

This puts the mixture at a ph of 5.9 i watered to runoff  and checked the outflow, it was within the normal range at  @700ish and 6.0 in ph which I think is right where I would like to keep it until I see signs of a deficiency

Here are a couple pics

True Blue Og has started to show sex now. I have FIM 'd it above the 5th node to try and have it start bushing out as I do have height limitations. I also have it in the autopot base now and have the makeshift reservoir has been turned on and it is filled with a solution of 800ec at 5.9ph

Plant is placed in the auto pot now for the last week or so. I have heavily defoliated and trained the branches.  Decided to ditch the FIM and just top it above the 5th node. Still only has single pistils showing at some nodes, just started alternating its nodes. I am hoping to have another week or 10 days before it has really started to flower. Feeding it a mix of  the following 

1ml/g  grow 

2ml/g  micro 

2ml/g magnifical 

3ml/g  bloom

@750ec   5.8 ph

 

Lowered the feed a touch since starting up the autopot as the tips were a little brown in a few spots.

So I got my new light the Grow 200 by grow light science and let me tell you this thing is way stronger than my mars hydro sp150. I put it in the cabinet and hung it about the same height as the mars was ,but turned it down to about 50% . Next day I woke up and it was not looking happy drooping and just generally not looking good. So I opened up a light meter app on my phone and tested the lux, and it was still way more intense than the plants were getting under the mars. I had to lower the intensity to probably 25% to get it in the same ballpark. I have kept it there right around 14000 lux for the last couple days and the plant was responding favorably. I will gently turn the intensity up over the next little while and monitor the condition. I have also decided to ditch the auto pot test as I feel this may also be a factor,  the other plant in here did not get quite as affected and that is the only other variable.  Once i took the autopot out and flushed the plant with a new fertigation mix fro. The top it resulted it the plant looking much better after 2 hours. I suspect the plant was staying just a little too wet as the base is square and I was using a round smart pot. I will try again next round with the pot designed for the base as they will allow the plant to dry out quicker. Anyway here is is after recovering
