    Just an update, plant is nice and full!!

    Looks like i need to add more nutes, i am seeing more phosphorous spots on another leaf. Temps got really high in my shed, the very top leaves were closed up. Plants will be staying outside tomorrow during the day.

    Beautiful! Great job Farmer!!

    Have you checked the ppms in her runoff water? Maybe a close up pic of the suspect foliage?

    Looks good man. The gorilla glue i have going were supposed to be autos but they infact are photos. Anyways I stayed on top of my low stress training and the result is 12-14 main stalks on each plant all pretty well the same height. So I pretty well doubled if not tripled my harvest.

    Wow, great job! They are really even. Mine are fairly even, although i did take the zip ties off. My other plant will produce a couple bowls lol

    It appears i will have 8 colas, maybe a few more

    I use a PPM/EC tester (mine is BlueLabs) which reads the amount of dissolved salts and soilds you have in suspension. My pen reads in PPM (parts per million) and also EC which means electrical conductivity. Salts in suspension allow small amounts of electrical current to pass thru the solution and is measured, but I always use PPM since that scale is most familiar to me. If you read high levels of PPM's that may mean your medium is nute saturated which can lead to problems often corrected by a flush. If your PPM are low, this test may show the need to slowly increase your nute level to feed the plant properly.

    BUT...HOWEVER...ph comes into play so ph needs to be tested. If the ph is out of range for your medium (6.5ish is average in soil), a ph issue may "lockout" certain nutrients from being absorbed and utilized by the plant. Honestly, in my opinion, knowing your ph runoff is the beginning point. If the ph is out of whack, the nutes are just sitting there unused, so no amount of extra feeding you do will matter. Got to have that ph in range...THEN the PPMs can be evaluated and adjusted more easily.

    Sorry to throw all this shit on you at once my friend. You are doing a great job....don't let this stall you out.

    @Stone420 It won't stall me out, it will keep me going! Thanks for the information. The next time I water i will put a drip tray under it sp i can collect the runoff and then test. I am using Fox Farms Coco Loco which i believe is a hybrid coco / soil mix. My water going in is anywhere from 6.2 to 6.4. Hopefully the runoff is close!
