She's doing pretty not too bad I'd say, if this is about day 17 above ground.

    Open to opinions, but I am still half tempted to top her though after deciding I wouldn't - a growth spurt on the lower branches would really help spread her out wide and I don't ideally want much more height than this before she enters the stretch phase.
    Looking great thelastrebel, although I had to crank my neck to see her lol

    If you continue to see issues with the gnats, have a little peek in on my home made gnat trap, might find it helpful - Linky

    Thanks mate, yeah it seems the site really loves inverting my images, only reliable way to stop it I've found is to crop before uploading and I always forget. One day I'll sort another host or something... I saw your vinegar trap the other day actually, that's next on the agenda for if the nematodes don't eradicate the bastards!

    Interested in thoughts on this - later in the grow I need to go away for about 12 days. I've done this before using an automated water pump and it works pretty well, the only issue thos time is it'll be in flower and that's a long time to go without feed as well as water. I'm thinking of doing a top dress before I go to charge the soil with something that will keep her going.

    My first thought was bat guano or something like that, but I've also looked at ecothrive life-cycle, which seems to be an all in one organic amendment for dummies kind of idea. Keeping it simple definitely suits me, I'm not going to start buying multiple soil amendments or brewing teas or anything for a grow of this nature! I suppose there's also things like biotabs but I don't know much about them tbh. Any thoughts?

    Gaz, if you're around, I know it's a different growing style generally but you know a thing or two about top dressing and soil improvements - any ideas fella?

    Had a look back at my last grow today and thought the comparison was interesting - current girl at day 20 vs the last one at day 21. Granted, the last one was delayed a bit when I damaged one of her cotyls early on but it's a pretty impressive difference this.

    Skipping along nicely at day 27 - ended up having a bit more vertical stretch than anticipated so have had to grapple with her a bit no complaints - I think there's room for her to flower from where she is now. It'll be watering day today and I might start introducing bloom nutes now. Other than the power roots supplement she's only had one dose of grow nutes so far, this soil must have been on the hot side I guess. Probably lower quality than what I've used before but hey, if it works it works.

    I went back to 20/4 lighting the other day from 18/6, I went 18/6 with my last grow to encourage a bit of stretch and there's no need for that this time so I figured I might as well give her the extra photons. Up to full power for the last week or so on the lights.

    Made up my mind on the ecothrive life-cycle route for when I go away, looks like a really good product but we'll see how it does. If it does well I might look to use it more as water-only is so convenient.

    I did almost go with charge, but since the life-cycle has charge in it anyway... time will tell I guess!

    Will do chief. I think what I'm hoping for is quite different than you though to be fair, I really just want a top dress to keep some nutes available for a week while I can't feed liquids, and being in a smallish pot anyway I don't mind having to use an increased dose if needs be. The charge probably would have worked too but I figure it can't do any harm having the extra ingredients in there, even if the quality's not the same as what you organic guys use.

    She's a good looking plant mate, hard to argue with that! I'm with you on the dose I think, but I don't mind having to use more than it suggests if it works. I don't really go buy the suggested doses on bottled nutes either to be fair and if this is a couple of times a year tool for me I don't mind the extra cost.

    I think if you have that mindset then its a good product but fecking expensive LOL

    Next time I get amendments I will make you a pot of top dress if you want mate and post it.

    Yeah I think that's the thing mate, there's a lot to be said for economies of scale and all that. If one tub of this lasts me, what, 15 holidays so like 5 years or more, £12 is nothing, but if I was using it the way you use your amendments it'd be a fortune.

    One thing about this grow, not sure if it's the bigger pot, the naturally larger growing strain or a combination of factors, but aside from being a couple of weeks ahead of my last plant she's also pushing the limits of my case dimensions more than I've experienced before. Depending on how she bulks up drastic measures maybe required later on but we'll see. Plan A is to let her grow fairly naturally from here and do another two stage harvest so that the colas getting less light can have a chance to catch up at the end.

    It's definitely making me think my long term plan for side lighting is going to be a good move - the colas at each end of the case would really benefit from it with a girl like this I think.
