Alrighty so do I have a tale to tell!
First off, support got back to me on my leaves, seems to be no issues at all, perhaps something in genetics and as long as it doesn’t spread up the canopy or onto new growth, not worrying about it for now.
But then, Friday night my Grobo had wifi issues. We finally got connected, but no lights or bubbles, only the bottom fan running. It felt like we troubleshooted everything over and over with no luck. Rebooted over and over, reconnected wifi over and over, tried unplugging from unit instead of wall, no, drain/fill over and over. After each fill it would stop but and I’d get light back, but just the light from the fill mode, it wouldn’t click into the you’re actually finished mode. So some light going now. Finally made a hack because I do have a spare airstone even though I have no spare pump… well I discovered I do actually! Being a cosmetologist has it’s perks. I used the air pump from my airbrush makeup gun and connected that- total hack!,
And THEN, we switched the light schedule and all was right with the Grobo and things worked as they should. All channels have a clear picture. Who would have thought? Well as long as cousin Jim keeps his right arm in the air and his left leg propped on the ottoman, the picture’s good Ma!
Also went into late veg at the same time so was confused that Grobo was filling up to the top again. My coco pod looks like it’s about to fall apart at the bottom any day now, lol. I thought high fill was for baby plants only and manually scooped some out since my grobo was acting fritzy as it was, so now I know my baby’s been thirsty all weekend!
AND, I can be a tad impatient and headstrong… I went ahead and started a little LST early using plant twisties and they hurt my baby’s stem. I have it taped up right now, as of yesterday, and a pipe cleaner attached to the twisty just to keep it stable and straight. It’s probably not needed, but unsure where to go next but I’ll explain what I’m thinking and then attach pics - as I’m typing on the computer and pics are on my phone and I’m too lazy to send pics to the computer and too slow to post on the phone, lol.
So I had the area right under topping pulled over to the right and then I had the stalk being stabilized straight to the left. I’ve also removed 5 leaves; the 2 single leaves, the 2 3 fingered leaves, and one 7 leafer near the top for light. I like taking top leaves. Okay so … the bottom left was getting lots of light and growth but the topping wasn’t so much. I let it go, it’s evening out, my top… I did cut some of the other leaves but it’s not a fim either, you’ll see. Anyway, since letting it go, the angle I created wants to lean toward the back so I’m thinking that one of my main tops will want to be trained toward the back wall or back right corner.
I learned my lesson and I’m ready to listen. I’ll go get some pics for you guys…
My new humidifier
The damage done under the topping from the plant twisty- not too bad here, I think it’ll mend fine.
Damage from the twisty on the bottom stem, now taped up
You can look closely on this picture and see that the stem that was leaning to the right (if you open other pics, idk what order they’re in, you’ll see the stronger lean) is now leaning to the back right a bit
The result of my topping, you can see that the leaves on the right bottom were cut. The center new growth of the left top looks cut as well but idk how that could be possible ???
