Feeding Amy at pH 5.9-6.0 ~1000 ec (1.0) of the Early Veg diet on the CCFC schedule. Last day of it, it will be Mid Veg diet tomorrow/tonight. I gave 1/2 tsp of ReCharge to the fertigation this morning.
Here is a pic from yesterday...
Topped all the plants and use the tops as clones. Put the clones into my flower tent on 12/12 so that they show sex. This will tell me what 'mother' plant is female once the clone shows sex.
I just want to mention that I spilled nutrients on my leafs and didn't notice it. Stay Calm.
I haven't determined sex yet, but these 'girls' need to be transplanted/up-potted. I have 4 #5 Air Pots and one 7 gallon fabric pot that I will be using.
My gut feeling says that plants #1, #2 and maybe #3 are female. I think plants #4 and #5 are male based on node spacing.
Time will tell.

I took this next pic 30 minutes before lights out after transplanting. They were tired and drooping for night time. I will have to take a better pic tomorrow when they are awake 😀
I will start Low Stress Training as soon as they look adapted to the transplant.
I've been busy chopping up Amy. Took a bunch of tops off this plant. I think it's a boy anyway. We will see! Also Amy Aces has been moved from the 2x4 to the 4x4 tent.
I've just been feeding Late Veg Diet at about 5.9-6.0 pH and 800-1100 ec. 2x fertigations a day.
Time to sex and strip... sexy strip? I dunno. Anyway here it is...
