    [–] Starting flowering 17th Nov - 1st grow chalkiest_studebaker 3 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in microgrowery

    Like a heater or AC unit, keep it outside of the tent if possible. Air blowing right from the unit is obviously a much higher humidity than the rest of the tent. Not ideal for your plants or their health. They also harbor mold pretty quickly. (although seems like you keep up on maintenence)

    Putting it outside the tent is easier said than done if the tent is in a large room and you have a tiny humidifier, but just something to consider. If it needs to be in there, have it face the wall. Consider buying a large one that can cover the whole room eventually. Worth it as theyll last much longer before refills as well.

    At this point in flower you should aim for 50%. By mid-end of flower you should be at 45%, then you can drop to like 40% or even 35% during the last week of flower before you chop. Budrot isn't fun.

    Yeah I only grow indoor as well, spring/fall/winter. Summer is way too hot to maintain temps. I feel you there. I have to run an AC all the time and its not worth it. Too much worry keeping those temps down.

    One grow with a full tent is 10oz... and its just for personal stash. That lasts me like 6 months easily lol. So I'm not in a rush to immediately start again.

    Mainly because I usually take a little break in between grows. No real reason though. I could certainly save it and 'replenish' it with some N, guano and castings at the minimum. This last time I switched to Roots soil for the first time. Used to use mainly FFOF and Happy Frog.

    And I hear you about the pH. I used to use the GH trio and have to deal with that, but after switching to organic nutes I haven't touched a pH meter. I also use pure RO DI water from my filter, hence the need for a LOT of calmag supplementation. another thing, RO/DI doesnt even have a stable pH, its useless trying to pH it.

    Jews in brooklyn.

    JK. It's not actually kosher.

    Kosher Kush's genetics are mostly a mystery though most growers agree that the strain likely contains OG Kush in its lineage. The strain comes from California and was originally referred to as "Jew Gold" or JG. As the strain became more mainstream and a favorite among dispensary owners, its original offensive name was changed to something more...say, kosher.

    Yeah im eager to see how they form as well. Thank you! And these guys are known for their stretch.

    Kosher Kush grows quite tall and it is recommended to pinch the tops out in order to control its tendency to stretch a lot while also evening out the canopy to aid access to the light thereby increasing yields which can reach 450 - 550 gr/m2.

    I do, but usually just to separate colas and make them more even. These guys had LST. They just didnt give a fuck and powered onward and upward. I didn't really have any more horizontal space to bring them down since I had 2 other plants in there as well.

    Yeah but its probably more managable.

    Ive never had a fully male plant. Only hermies to some degree.

    In the past Ive snipped off the bananas and moved on, and still got some insane bud.

    This time it was like every flower hermied all the way up each stalk. Rest of these GSC seeds going into the trashhhh

    Seedsman a while ago, they are Reserva Privada though

    It's kosher kush, i's like 80/20 indica Dom.

    So certainly not sativa heavy. Hence the surprise. If you're growing a sativa Dom you can't be surprised when it stretches.

    [–] The Kosher Kush stretch is real. chalkiest_studebaker 1 points ago in microgrowery

    No. I don't reuse soil and I don't modify my pH. My soil has plenty of buffers and I don't worry about it. Ever. Hydro is a pH game for sure, but let the soil deal with that. That's what it's good for.

    3x 3000 and 4x 3500.

    I wouldnt blame this on the lights. Kosher Kush is infamous for stretching, I just took those words a little too lightly. Maybe other color temps would have helped though.

    [–] The Kosher Kush stretch is real. chalkiest_studebaker 1 points ago in microgrowery

    If I knew the strain would stretch this bad I would have done things differently. I've done this same 50 day veg many times with 3 toppings and usually they stay much more short and dense.

    [–] The Kosher Kush stretch is real. chalkiest_studebaker 1 points ago in microgrowery

    They're already so sparse due to the height. Not removing anything

    [–] The Kosher Kush stretch is real. chalkiest_studebaker 1 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago) in microgrowery

    With 12/12 from seed ? I wanted time to top them a few times. I didn't expect the stretch would be this crazy. In retrospect I would have changed some things.

    [–] The Kosher Kush stretch is real. chalkiest_studebaker 1 points ago in microgrowery

    I can take a little hermieness but these were bad. Every bud has multiple banana bushels.

    [–] The Kosher Kush stretch is real. chalkiest_studebaker 1 points ago * (lasted edited 4 days ago) in microgrowery

    Yes. If anything they were too close at times. My other plants in the tent were short fat dense midgets. And I was starting to get light bleaching at the top tips.

    If it works no need to change it up unless youre looking for change lol.

    You can take a look through some of the Roots organics ingredients on their main lineup. That's what convinced me and I went that route to stay organic without as much work. If you made your own compost tea it would basically be the same ingredients.

    This book explains the microbial connection in your soil very well and why organic is king for soil

    When we use chemical fertilizers, we injure the microbial life that sustains healthy plants, and thus become increasingly dependent on an arsenal of artificial, often toxic, substances., But there is an alternative to this vicious cycle. We can garden in a way that strengthens the soil food web the complex world of soil-dwelling organisms whose interactions create a nurturing environment for plants. "Teaming with Microbes" extols the benefits of cultivating the soil food web.

    You're welcome.

    The only long lasting nutrients are the Uprising, and you're using 2tsp per plant every 2 weeks, so it's not very much at all. These dry amendments breaking down over time alongside the Oregonsim and earthworm castings will lead to much healthier soil with a thriving microbe population. Majority of my nutrients come from the bottles for sure. And the only inorganic products on that list are Soul Amino Aide and Soul Big Swell. Neither are enough to affect your microbes.

    Even things like Calmag+ (the liquid) contains EDTA and will negatively affect this microflora population. Hence the Elemental, organic calmag powder basically.
