    Bloody pH meter went batshit crazy on me again! Values jumping all over the place. I had to guess tonights' feed. Surely they are not THAT delicate. I use it for about a minute a day, rinse immediately after, dry, then put the cap back on.

    I also ordered proper pH buffer solution. Will be interesting to see how the ready mix calibration powder compares....

    Bud sites are now developing nicely. Going to modify the feed to full strength Hammerhead, reduce Canna A+B.

    Canna A+B at 1.0ml/litre each. 2ml/litre Hammerhead. EC 1.4.

I have gained great experience that I will use for my next grow which will be pure indicas.
    That's cool man I'm growing one of each a sativa for day time smoking in my days off and the indica for evening smoking to help with sleep I was also looking at CBd medicinal strains was curious as to how different the effects are

    The pH buffer solutions arrived today. I did a comparison between them and the salt packs that come with the meters. Both meters calibrated using pH4 salt mix actually measured the pH4 buffer solution as pH 4.5. The pH7 buffer solution measured as pH 6.9.

    I have recalibrated both meters using the buffer. Won't be using salts again.

    I also tested to see if there was a difference between salt solution packs mixed both with Distilled water and Deionized water. There wasn't.

    The third meter, the auto calibrating one, is f*cked already. I have only ever used it once when i first bought it. It was washed and left to drip dry vertically afterwards. Piece of junk is going back for a refund.

    Yes, first grow so I was a bit scared to trim much. Next time will be tidier.

    I chopped them yesterday.

    Fuck that was hard work, and messy!

    The White Widow smells delicious! I have never smelt proper fresh weed before. It's almost too good to smoke.

    I cut a bud off the Medical Northern Lights on Friday to test. Nuked it in the microwave on low power for 15 minutes. It obviously didn't taste great but I really enjoyed the effect from a high CBD strain. Almost narcotic depth to the stone, but still able to get up, put the dinner on, and even do the washing up. That worked well for me. I like getting really messy for a couple of hours, but not so lethargic I can't do anything for the rest of the day.

    I think I will have about 200 grams dry. Not a great result from 400 watts of light, but I made some huge mistakes during the grow. The biggest being not watering every day in coco. I was following the 'wait until the top few inches inches are dry' rule for soil. My second mistake was relying on cheap pH meters. I had 6 of the yellow ones fail during the course of the grow. 6! Had to guess the pH every day for 7 days running. That caused the Northern Lights to mutate.

    Thanks for the advice along the way. I have started my next grow http://www.thctalk.com/cannabis-foru...ctable-Indicas
