    Hey Everyone! Today is day 26 in my grow. I have been lurking on here for a month or two. Tons of info to digest probably too much for a noob like me which is a good thing!

    Here is my set up: 2x4x5 Vivosun tent
    2000w (345 actual) king plus led blurple
    4 in. Vivosun carbon filter and fan with control dial
    3 fans one vertical rotating fan and two small metal fans.
    5 gal. fabric pots
    Coco Coir (CoCo Cultivate RHP pre buffered 5.5-6.5) from Amazon

    Nutes: Im using Genral Hydroponincs Trio Mico, Grow and Bloom along with Cal-Mag and also Organicide for pest control which I have not applied yet.

    Tap water PH: going in around 6.1-6.3 coming out around 5.5-5.8

    My water is somewhat hard I notice sitting the buckets out a film of hard water and maybe oil on the surface. Was going to filter it out but didn't want to use bleached coffee filters....

    2 Tangerine dream auto seeds from Growers choice seeds.

    I have some horrible blurple photos starting from day 1 through day 25 I will upload.

    Here are some current photos: TC8C6474-2.jpg TC8C6473-2.jpg TC8C6472-2.jpg TC8C6471-2.jpg TC8C6470-2.jpg TC8C6469-2.jpg TC8C6468-2.jpg TC8C6467-2.jpg TC8C6466-2.jpg
    Noticed these spots today. Some of the leaves have touched the soil from LST. I used some bottle caps to keep them off the soil not sure if this is a good idea or not? Not sure if its a deficiency or just PH or what?

    Overall the plants are short with nodes being about 1/4 inch apart. I will try and post from day one starting tonight with a single image so I don't overload. This supposed to be a Sativa dominant strain so I thought maybe my light at 24" was too close. I moved it up to 30" a couple days ago.

    I am watering about every 3 days at the moment 1 gallon of water in each pot. The notes from this last feeding were 3 ml Cal-Mag, 2 ml Micro, 4 ml Grow. I have been following the Lucas formula to this point. About a week ago I noticed some brown spots and and did only water with Cal-Mag.

    Looking pretty good mate. Yea those brown spots look like calcium def so good call with the calmag.
    And raising lights normally helps the plants stretch a bit.

    Nice work so far bud

    Unlike soil, you don't measure ph out in coco and correct. You might want to consider lowering your ph between 5.8-6.1. You could get a ppm meter and go that route.
