Have you had a ph adjustment already on this grow with support to fix deficiency?
-This is my very first grow ever. I don’t think I’ve done a ph adjustment.
( When doing a ph check you will need to contact support and submit a ticket so that they can adjust ph on their end. ) https://support.grobo.io/hc/en-us/requests/new
Roots look awesome how’s the water temp going?
-I have a water thermometer. I just need to figure out how to hang it inside the Grobo.
What kind Of water temp therm did you get? Most of them have sticky stuff on the back of them that doesn’t harm grobo walls and you just peel and stick it eye level with enough of the cord to hit the bottom of the tank so that it still reads when water is low. nothing special to do really.
Too late now but next grow don’t start a grow without getting your coco pod flush with the lid.
-I tried the day I put it in its place. It wouldn’t go in any further without breaking it.
Usually when this happens its because the water you soaked the pod in has expanded the coco already, you want to soak it but only for a sec before squeezing it out and putting it immediately into the lid so that it doesn’t have time to expand. Never pull from the bottom!
Check for twisted or kinked lines.
-All lines checked out and are ok.
Check for buildup on probe.
-Not sure how to check this out.
To check your probe you simply lift the lid and very carefully pull it straight upward, gunk buildup is obvious to the eye because the probe is made of glass, the buildup will normally be amber/brown in nature. Let me forewarn you that they are very easy to break and it takes a steady hand not to cling them on the machine or the other probe next to it, to clean use your ph cleaner in your grobo Ph calibration kit, keep submersed in water at all times and don’t scrub hard. I think there is a video somewhere around here for probe cleaning if you need more help let me know.
You can cut off the worst leaves pretty soon or one at a time as new leaves grow in.
-I want to do this I just was afraid I was going to do something wrong. But I do think it’s the right thing to do.
From my experience these plants may take a couple days to recoup from a large loss but are always healing at a fast rate and replacing anything lost. You’ll find that a mistake is often forgiven and in most times rewarded. Go for it!
Have you been marking your nutrient bottles to make sure they are being used properly?
-This I haven’t done but I do notice a difference every time I do a water change. Going forward I will mark the bottles.
At a glance this really is a great method and it also helps if you turn your bottles to the side so that you get a clear shot from the neck of the bottle to the bottom.
Your Grobo is Growing
Early Vegetation (Day 14 /14)
Should I extend the early veg stage. Someone suggested it and I wasn’t sure if I should.
