    Glad to see NYCD with new clothes in style. Fresh new green leaves.
    Also clearly less brown spots on the first ones.
    Up to the sky now!

    DAY 12

    Well these girls are making me WORK.

    NYCD has picked up a bit after upping the feed, but the Zkittles didn't like it at all and appears to be burnt already. Clearly they have very different requirements and I guess I'll need to treat them very differently throughout. Kind of a pain in the ass but I guess it keeps things interesting.

    I've had the loooongest, hardest few weeks at work putting this project together which is now complete, so whilst I'm feeling like these girls are kicking my butt a little, I'm feeling pretty positive about em. It'll be fun and I've got a little more time on hands than I have done recently.

    I'm expecting some very different plants, I might have messed them up already but I'm sure they'll recover OK. They got time and so do I (finally!)

    I also keep forgetting that I'm using LEDs for the first time ever, so there's a learning curve to be expected. Temp levels have been wild and I think I had the light a little far away as I was so wary of cooking them.

    Issues aside, growth seems to be picking up a bit which is encouraging although they both look totally fucked up right now...
    Can't wait for them to kick into gear and get bending. :vibe:

    I'm gonna go load up the bong with some Ghost Stomper (which has now cured into the most divine bud I have ever had the pleasure of consuming) and laaaay baaaack.



    Let's just appreciate these lyrics from Mr Pike for a moment too:

    Saturn five rise, as gravity dies, through ionosphere he flies
    Capsule is flown, beyond the known, admixture sustains smoke suit as home
    Traverse galactic sea, inhaler of the riff-tree
    Initiate burn, never to return, a distant earth fades receding
    Through the hashteroid fields, a transmission yields, now riff beacon signal is received
    Trajectory set a new bearing, cross alien skies command module flies
    Sojourns the lone stoned soul, Marijuanaut loads a new bowl
    Behold as he enters the clearing, Planet Iommia nearing
    Through ionosphere chutes deploy capsule splash down on the TH sea
    To raft row the hash oil leagues to shoreline

    :hookah:

    I’m adjusting to new lights also with this grow, better to let them stretch than burn I think. Though both are stresses to the seedlings. My double grape wouldn’t stop stretching and I now have my lights almost to the height I would expect for a mature plant. They look healthy but DG got quite tall for its age.

    Man, I'm struggling with these girls like I never have before. I think there's a few factors at play but the distance seems like it's really important with LEDs. More so than HPS which has felt much more forgiving.

    I like to grow pretty big plants usually so a bit of stretching doesn't bother me, but these didn't really have that. They've just seemed unhappy from day 1.
    I think it's probably due to hard water although I haven't had any issues before. It's a bit of a mystery but I'm fairly confident they'll get their groove on soon. I'm already seeing a slightly accelerated growth so hopefully they continue.
    Just gotta mix up 2 separate feeds now for two plants. It's gonna be a lot of work to maintain proper levels once the next two join the family. Both of which are battle plants, so ideally I'd like to not fuck them up. Four separate feeds across four plants isn't a particularly exciting prospect but we'll see how it goes...

    I know what you’re saying. I have two completely different nute lines and two plants. Soon I’ll add another one for the upcoming grow battle and I’ll have to mix a third. Stink!!

    Now that you have the time, I bet you nail what the issue has been and dial it in. Plants are still poised to take off.

    DAY 15

    After upping feed levels and frequency Zkittles is looking pretty happy again.

    NYCD less so, but growth has picked up quite a bit and whilst she's looking pretty messed up right now, I'm confident she'll grow out of it still. I'm not sure I've had a seedling in such bad shape before but not far off and it's been fine in the end. I won't risk topping though.

    Definitely stunted them, they should be further along at this point but I'm not too bothered. I feel like I'm beginning to figure out how LEDs work and differ from the HPS. Hopefully I can use that to help the next two that will be joining the party soon.

    I'll be potting up soon, this evening or tomorrow I should think.
