Strain is White Rhino, 39 days into flowering stage in a DWC/hydro setup, using a 250W HPS light in a 3'x3'x5' tent. Nutrients are General Hydroponics Flora Trio + CaliMagic + Hydroguard.

I got a new camera and still trying to figure it out :) If anyone has tips for using a DSLR camera let me know!

Trudeau is saying that this current approach isn't working, and that people legitimately concerned over the harms of the drug trade should consider a radically different approach. So far, the evidence is backing him up.

Justin Trudeau, Canada's prime minister, offered an unusually strong case for why people who hate marijuana should legalize it anyway.

Just finished week 3 of flowering today under the 250W HPS, and I did my last major defoliation session. I may end up going back and taking off a few more fan leaves over the next few days, but I was done for today. I'll make sure to take plenty of pics over the next week so you can see how fast the buds swell after defoliating in early flowering :)

The hood/reflector I'm using is only 17" wide has a really small light footprint when I bring the light close to the plants. It had a good spread with a 600W HPS (which I borrowed it from) but doesn't seem as well designed for the 250W. I was looking at the description from the manufacturer and I saw they have designed it to focus down light from lamps that are kept higher up.

When you bring it close it starts creating dark spots around the edges because the light is being reflected down, and you can see with my lux meter that the edge colas are getting almost 20,000 lux less (55,000 lux for the middle vs 35,000 lux around the edges) than the ones right in the middle. If I bring the light down closer to try to increase light levels, the buds around the edges start getting even less light because it's getting blocked by the hood. This is partly my fault for training a plant to be wider than the light footprint of my reflector, but I didn't really realize that until just recently. In any case, I want a reflector that can spread light on the whole tent, so I can get the most yields.

I saw a hood on Amazon with a wider spread for about $60 (http://amzn.to/22Z6AGl), and since I had a credit with Amazon I decided to get it. It comes next Wednesday. I've been playing around with the lux meter a lot, and I'm interested to see how much of a difference it makes to the light levels in different parts of the tent if I change the hood.

+Nebula Haze sweet. Yea i read the article. Very good read with outstanding info. I was thinking of just making a reflector that would fit my 4x4. I can make one for around 40$

Just finished week 2 of flowering and switched from "Transition" to "Bloom" nutrients today. We're having a heat wave so I moved the 250W light up to almost 2 feet above the canopy (I normally keep it a little over a foot away). It's about 81°F in the house and about 85°F in the tent at the canopy right now with the light up. So far so good! Whenever the plant is stressed from heat or nutrients, it always seems to help to move the light up until things get better.

I also did my first real defoliation session since the switch to 12/12 two weeks ago. I was hoping to wait until the end of week 3 to defoliate per the "schwazzing' technique (thought I might try it out) but I just couldn't get myself to wait that long because the plant seemed so bushy to me :) I did what I consider a relatively light defoliation today, and hopefully I can keep my hands off the plant until next Friday when I do the last major defoliation. At that point I'm planning to remove every big fan leaf, then after that I'm done, and hopefully just leaving the plant alone until harvest!

Questions about DWC  - 
 
Hey DWC Growers! I was just curious: What is your favorite supplement for hydro and why?

For my plants, I currently use just the GH Flora nutrient trio, with only CaliMagic and Hydroguard as supplements. I'm very happy with my results, and I'm honestly a little afraid of changing things up in case it messes up my grow, but I'm also keeping my mind open about possibly trying something new with my current plant :) I don't have any problems to fix (and normally my advice is "if it's not broke don't fix it"), but I wanted to see what you all swear by!

Hello Jack. A word of advice on Sensi Cal-mag Xtra. One of my two plants, both of which are 8 weeks into the bloom phase, started getting the dry, brown spots on her the majority of her leaves. I learned that it was most likely related to a calcium deficiency. So I increased the dose of Cal-mag just a bit, confident that the Sensi Cal-mag Xtra would do the job. 2 days after their water change, I noticed the claw like leaves related to nitrogen toxicity. I was baffled. So today, while picking up more nutes from the garden store, I learned a very disappointing fact about Sensi Cal-mag. It, unlike some of the other popular brands of Cal-mag, has an NPK of 4-0-0. I never once considered the Cal-mag to be the culprit. So while I was there, I picked up a bottle of the GH Cal-mag, which has an NPK of 1-0-0 and takes half the amount of a dose of Sensi. Plus it was $10 cheaper.

Questions about growing  - 
 
Has anyone heard of "Schwazzing"? I've heard some people use the word "Schwazze" to refer to some type of defoliation as a way to increase yields. Someone said you defoliate your plant heavily before the switch to the flowering stage, then do it again in the flowering stage, but I'm not sure when you're supposed to do it a second time. From what I can tell, it's just a new word for the type of defoliation we already tell you to do on the website, but I was wondering if there were any differences.

The guy who named the technique wrote a book called 'Three a Light" which teaches the technique but costs $500!!!! Since it just seems like a fancy term for defoliation, I was wondering if anyone here knew more about it? If there's a better way to defoliate we want to make sure we're giving that information to people for free on the website! No one should have to pay $500 for a book that just teaches you to remove leaves!

Yea I hear that, It's ridiculous, that's for sure. Have a great harvest and promote a product. It's like I have always said; if you can't make it buy it. So far outside, I make it, & inside I buy it.

Defoliation update (1 week later). I heavily defoliated this plant 1 week ago and I wanted to show you what it looks like now :) I've pulled off maybe an additional 6-7 leaves since last Friday but otherwise haven't done anything to the plant besides maintain the reservoir. This White Rhino plant has been flowering since May 20 (28 days). Nutrients are GH Flora Trio, Hydroguard and CaliMagic. Grow light is a 250W HPS.

+Erick P It's tough to decide later in the flowering stage. For me, if it's leafy I'll pull it, but I think as time goes on it makes less of a difference. What I can say is your plant looks really great :)

Questions about growing  - 
 
Hello everyone! I had a question for those growing auto-flowering strains: Have any of you grown a plant by the breeder "Mephisto Genetics"? Someone wanted me to add them as a trusted breeder to the auto-flowering page on the website, and I was hoping someone here might have some experience with their genetics to share :)

Legalization & Regulation News  - 
 
Ohio's medical marijuana program is strict, but a big step in the right direction!

Ohio is the 25th state to pass a comprehensive medical marijuana program, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. The Ohio law prohibits smoking or growing marijuana at home but allows cannabis oils, tinctures, patches, edibles and plant material to be used and sold in state-licensed dispensaries.

The program will be regulated by the Ohio State Pharmacy Board, State Medical Board and Department of Commerce. A 14-member advisory board including pro-medical marijuana members would recommend rules to the three regulatory agencies.

The program must be operational within two years, according to the law, but lawmakers think it will take less time.

People with the following medical conditions will be able to use medical marijuana under the law: HIV/AIDS, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer's disease, cancer, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), Crohn's disease, epilepsy or another seizure disorder, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, hepatitis C, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, pain that is either chronic and severe or intractable, Parkinson's disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, sickle cell anemia, spinal cord disease or injury, Tourette's syndrome, traumatic brain injury and ulcerative colitis.

Employers can still fire medical marijuana patients if their marijuana use violates the employer's drug-free workplace or zero tolerance policy.

http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2016/06/gov_john_kasich_signs_medical.html
Ohio became the latest state to legalize medical marijuana when Gov. John Kasich signed House Bill 523 into law on Wednesday.

Just some pics of my plant. Strain is White Rhino and it has been flowering for 9 days. GH Flora Trio, CaliMagic & Hydroguard.

+Al Champagne I put a picture of one of my leaves on this plant. It's just this one leaf like that. I think it's some sort of nutrient issue because the tip is also curled down like it was getting too much Nitrogen. It's also directly under the light and it seems like those ones are more likely to get stressed. I was wondering if this is similar to what you're seeing on your leaves? I've seen this before on my plants and honestly I've just ignored it because it seems like it only affects a few leaves and everything else looks healthy.

I just switched to a 12/12 light schedule a little less than a week ago. My plant is mid-stretch, and getting bigger every day. I was looking at my canopy because I'm trying to make sure everything grows in evenly. I noticed there was one cola in the back that was smaller than the rest, originating from a small stem, and kind of crowding the nearby colas which all look like they're in better shape. In the interest of encouraging the rest of the colas to stretch more, I decided to remove the undersized one so the plant could focus on lengthening all the others. I want a nice big stretch so I get long colas for buds to form on!

Strain: White Rhino by Nirvana
Grow Light: 250W HPS
Nutrients: General Hydroponics Flora trio
Supplements: Hydroguard & CaliMagic

This DWC-grown plant is 1 month, 27 days old and I just switched it to a 12/12 light schedule! I also did a big trim so the plant puts it's energy in all the right places during the flowering stretch. What I really want is for all the mains to stretch so I get nice long buds, but in order to do that you need to take away all unnecessary growth so the plant focuses just on developing the colas.

I cut off any lower growth that was in shadow, and I also removed all extra growth tips that I didn't want in the top canopy. So all those little growth tips along the edges or lower down on my main colas got chopped. If a growth tip had a significant stem but wasn't one of my mains then it is now gone. For any crowded spots in the canopy, I plucked a few growth tips to try to make it so that every remaining cola has at least 2" of space to itself on all sides.

Can't wait to see this plant start flowering! I've grown this strain before and I loved it, so I'm pretty excited for the results!
