Took these pictures right after sending the plant into Veg 1. I had completed a water change prior to heading into the seedling stage however the ratios of nutrients stay the same into Veg 1 so I did not complete a water change for this phase change. Also, it appears to me that some of the newer fan leaves seem to take on a paler green than leaves that have been there longer, is this normal/ do these plants look healthy? I am a first-time grower so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hey that is starting to fill in nicely. The really busy plants you see on here are indicas. Yours is sativa dominant I think so it is going to look scragglier. Don’t worry though it should really start to bulk up those flowers.
Hi, @DJ. We had a chance to look at your system data and see that you are in the "Drying" stage.
First, a couple questions:
Is your plant cut and hanging and are your lights off?
We can see that your heater is working (we've observed an increase in temperature to 61 at certain points), but we believe that the heater is essentially battling the radiator which works constantly to help maintain target humidity levels. The heater will only kick on for 2 minutes at a time to avoid overheating and frying the plants.
We appreciate the data and are looking into how we can make both systems work in conjunction with each other more consistently. For now, having a temperature of 60 vs. 65 is totally OK and it is more important to have the system work to control the humidity levels than to constantly heat during this stage.
Please let us know if you notice anything else and reach out if you need additional help.
Looking good! Every water change I push the roots back over to the right side of the root blockers (under the root view panel on the left) to keep them from growing down into the reservoir. Other than that, you can let the root mass get as big as you'd like. Bloom comes with a trellis system (inside the accessories box), and I think you are ready to install it and let the plant start growing through. Let us know if you need some direction there.
I tend to use mine on the lawn, but diluted at about 4 to 1 it should be good for houseplants. Since houseplants grow so much more slowly, you do not need the high concentrations of nutrients present in Bloom.
