White Widow - First Grow

Maybe it wasn’t setup mode but when you plug it in and the lights change colours the fans turn on then off. I want to get one that plugs in so I don’t have to charge it

I was thinking the same thing because I already spend a fortune on rechargeable batteries that don’t seem to Iast as long as they should. I bought mine at Walmart for $4 when the season was changing but I’m sure amazon or eBay has small fans in the winter.

Hey @Flyers28 my first grow I thought the same thing. The fan doesn’t engage until the end of day 10. Hope this helps!

I want to get an axial type motor (like the ones in the back of grobo) to add that are 120 volts so it will plug in. Maybe one on each side at the base of the plant once I reach late veg.

Day 22 (12/14 early veg)
Bottom leaves have some curling to them. Other than that seems to be doing well. I want to top when she is ready. I think I count about 4 nodes right now. What does everyone think?

Lots of growth this week. I topped her and cleaned up some bottom leaves. Also tied back some leaves to get light to the centre. Added 7 days to late veg.

Hey @Osage does this look like cal/mag needs to be added? The bottom leaves I removed were a bit worse. I’m using RO water and bottle 5 is dispensing. Any other suggestions? :pray:

If you have revive, add 5ml per liter to amend deficiencies! If not add cal/mag at 1/4 strength :+1::v::v:

Ok I’ll see how quick I can get some revive if not cal/mag is easily accessible at a local store.
Thanks Jerry :v:

Happy weekend everyone! Water change day tomorrow for me and looking for advice on when I should be removing the big fan leaves?(there’s 4 remaining) I’ve tucked them away by tying them down for now.
Cheers

For every article or person that says remove you will get another saying you shouldn’t.
I personally lollipop, top, and trim,I find that removing the large leaves only results in the smaller ones taking its place. Some may argue it takes more energy but that would have to be something you decide for each strain.
I believe in defoliation and some believe in total defoliation, when dealing with autos I would caution against but again you’ll have to decide whats best.
The common rule on large fan leaves are to remove if they are blocking light of bud sites, and never to remove more than 20% at a time.

Thanks @Bplatinum9. I think I’ll keep tucking for now, it doesn’t seem like they’re blocking any bud sites yet since I have them tied down. I’ll do some defoliating once it’s necessary which I assume will be soon enough!

Day 43 (19/28) late veg extended 14 days.
She’s not very tall. Seems after I topped there hasn’t been much vertical growth. The second fan seems pretty far away right now. I did a big trim hopefully didn’t take too much. What do you think? @Bloodydrake @Russel_Richardson @Bplatinum9
