Today marks day 40 for this pair of GG’s. I’m sure something is off with them but I am making changes to my growing method over time to find a comfortable regular simple method to use for small personal home grow only…not mega bushes…lol.
On this grow I switched from MG to FFOF potting soil. Instead of plastic pots I chose grow bags and went with bottom watering only. The bags were loaded with 3 inches of clay balls, then soil on top…placed in 2 inch deep watering trays and have been bottom watered in the tray only - no top watering at all. Always ph between 6 and 6.5 somewhere ( cheap Amazon ph meter - which I suspect is a pos and is going to be replaced with a pro ph meter )
Bottom watering really cut down on fungus gnats but created a new problem - green algae from the light hitting the fill tray. Caught it early but now its just another thing I dont want to have to worry about all the time so I purchased the AC Infinity self watering bag bases to hopefully fix the algae problem and will use them in next grow along with again a new potting medium…havent decided yet.
As far as lights I have 2 Viparspectra P-2000s for my 4x4 tent with a 6 inch vent system. I know the lights are budget but I think I should be able to coax a few ounces out of my plants with them… Other than that all seemed well until now…
These GG’s from Growers Choice have a 55 to 65 day finish. At day 40 they are now looking a bit off to me. Actually I have only added nutes one time since they were looking great and didnt show signs of needing any. Im kind of afraid to add any more nutes at this point as they should be ready for harvest in a few weeks or so - but they sure dont look like it right now. Any short term fix I can do to finish this grow or should I just ride it out ?
** Cant seem to post pics right now…will post shortly I hope…lol
