    Keeping track of watering pH going in and coming out. Adjustment of pH as needed.
    In between watering Don't let them droop too much the soil life suffers. Don't love them too much. When the lights are high enough for most plants some are gonna stretch quickly so keep the canopy level as you can, raise the short ones.

    I tend not to have pH up issues, I use clear/white vinegar for pH down. My tap water comes out at 7. One tablespoon vinegar per gallon drops to a six. I use dolomitic lime to buffer soil to 7 when it's too high

    They're all still a little grumpy at me for feeding them too early! I flushed the sickly looking ones (all except 2 I didn't feed) about 24 hours ago, they have good drainage so they're drying out nicely. I checked ph of water going in and it was 6.4, and all runoff fell between 6.2 and 6.4


    This one is my favorite so far, it looks neat :)
    Whenever I wake up I like to poke my head in there just to check and when I bend over close I can smell the stinky little buggers. They even have unique scents :heart_eyes:

    Maybe a few @BudMonster I'm not sure yet ive gotta figure out my space situation. I've been piggy backing on this thread because I started these like 1 day before I noticed the challenge.

    Here's an update for everyone.

    I know, I just don't have the room back here. I suppose I could move the light up some so it'd cover more area... I really just want to kill the slh but even if I do that won't solve the mite problem in the front room, or else they'd already be under the big light. I don't have anything to treat the room itself with and we're hardly able to eat and smoke and keep the lights on all at the same time lol I've just hit a monetary roadblock and I keep saying two more weeks and then all my money is gone to bills and keeping smoke to calm my crohn' s disease etc. I'm hoping to come into money in the next few days so my fingers are crossed but it's not highly likely.

    While I've got you here, my lights are on 18/6. Is that correct for this stage?

    18/6 is perfect, it's best to keep the 6 hours lights off to the warmest part of the day so the temps are nice and stable and there are no big drops :)
    I'd bleach the life out of the big room, go crazy, then give it a good air out and get them under the big light in decent sized pots and fresh mix/coco asap! The longer you wait the worse they're going to look my friend.

    Sounds like a plan, I think the jury is out on the slh, I may do away with it today and start on the room. If I get them all potted and moved tonight or tomorrow how far away should the hps be?

    I'd go with 3ft from the light to the top of the plants for the first week or two and see how you get on :)

    @Sunshine I'm gonna kill the slh soon. The room is all carpet with a big sofa and an old mattress. Do you think mites will be in the fabrics? How would I clean that? I suppose I should make a 1:10 bleach water mixture and spray it everywhere and open the Windows right?
