    Just a quickie, she's on day 16, PH has been stable at 6.2 everyday, just risen to 6.3 for the first time today. Will probably leave there, or should I adjust it down? EC is 0.6.

    :clapper: NICE! :woohoo1:

    That is a beautiful day 16 specimen, bro! No signs of tip burn but nice green on her! Excellent job.

    pH 6.3 is just fine. I like to let it stay there if it likes to float there but if it gets to 6.4 or so I'd correct it back down. Man, I've had this issue with my NL grow this time around that everyday I measure the pH, it is 6.5. Then I fix it down to 6.2 and next day it's up again back in 6.5 and she is really doing fine :biggrin:

    This one looks you can safely bump up the feed to something like 0.8 and see how she likes it. I bet she will! Again, congrats on a fine start! This is crucial to get right and now she is rocking and even a bit more forgiving since she is getting stronger.

    If you are using VeloKelp, then it is likely just that. It is supposed to be like that. If not, please list everything that goes to the reservoir.

    Do you have any places near you that sale RO water?
    I have a little water station near me in the parking lot of a grocery store that I aquire my RO water from. It has like 10 different filtrations it goes through and had worked great for me. Cost $1.50 for 5 gallons.

    Day 23

    PH 6.3
    EC 0.8
    Temp 25-27C
    RH 45%-55%

    I swore to myself that as this was my first Hydro go I was going to let the plant just grow naturally. But two days ago I could stand it no longer, and started a very light tying down session. She responded beautifully so I think I may continue... Next time round I'm definitely going to sort out some hooks in the lid though, tying this ugly green garden wire to the sides is not ideal. tried to tuck some leaves but they don't really stay, @MedGrower is it too early to remove a couple just to open things up, or should I wait?

    Dehumidifier is working well, I was getting up to 77% which was making me nervous, now it stays in range nicely with the added benefit of warming up the tent between 3 and 5 degrees. Plants seem happy!

    She is looking nice and surely going up from there. LST and defoliation is a good idea at this stage if you want to keep her down and not growing so much vertically. It is alright to start gently taking couple of leaves from the bottom to open her up for now. Specially since you are doing LST and you'd ideally want to promote better growth for those side nodes. I'd take couple of those bigger fan leaves out from the down below for now to get her used to the idea. Good luck bro!
