PTGC Mainlines: PTGC Mainlines - Apex R1 by Ethos
Figured it's time to get a grow journal kicked off to participate in the drawing.
Grow details are:
Tent size: 2x2
Light: MH TS600
Seeds: Ethos Apex R1
Medium: coco/perlite cfc recipe
Nutrients: GH line as recommended by the cfc chart.
Running 3 Ethos genetics Apex R1 (was hoping for 4 but 3 didn't germ). Germed using paper towels and plates on a heat mat and then placed into jiffy pellets.
Jiffy pellets were then transfered to seedling bags w/coco mix and the fertigations began. Moved from the seedling pots to 3 gal Square fabric pots as their final home (just after 4th node came in). Plants were then topped at the 3rd node. Planning to run all 3 plants with 4 main colas in an attempt to maximize space so we'll see how it goes. Looks they were experiencing cal/mag deficiency early on but have since gotten over it (boosted calmag supplement by .5ml / gallon). Everything seems to be running smoothly now that the auto-fertigation and auto drain systems are in place. Planning to top and strip growth nodes this upcoming weekend.
All 3 plants are 5 weeks old from sprout and seem to be going pretty strong.
Each main branch was topped again and underwent more lst to get the cola placement I'll need. Flipping to flower in the next 10 days or so depending on how they respond to the training.
Auto fertigation and drainage is in full swing and making the daily grow chores a breeze. Taking it all apart and cleaning weekly to keep any gunk away.
Plants were all re-tied again to start shaping and get the cola's where I want them. Plants were switched to flower on Sunday and nutrient solution was switched to the "flip to pistols showing" solution and things seem to be moving in the right direction.
