    Need a doctor... stat!

    I can’t see the pictures but just from your description I can congratulate @ydt on his diagnosis. Soil and worm castings make for a terrible substrate. Worm castings become sloppy anaerobic muck without aeration. You need to add lots of perlite to that mix. If you don’t transplant into a better substrate now, you might as well chuck those plants.

    LED light burn

    No salvation necessary The plants were harvested, and the meds are good!

    LED light burn

    So, turns out my light meter sensor is not cosine corrected. My meter is reading low. Cosine correction is not linear, so one cannot just add, say 20%, but it’s what I have until I can hunt down a formula for cosine correction. My guesstimate is that the above plants were actually seeing around 900 umol.

    LED light burn

    In the spirit of sharing experiences, Here’s a pic of what LED light burn looks like. I have done a lot of research regarding how many umols I should be covering my canopy with. Firstly, it’s very seldom you find growers with the instruments to back up what they’re saying. A distance figure means little when everyone is using different lights. Even the manufacturers distance rating goes out the window when you’re using more, or less lights. The best info I’ve found, stated 700umol/m2/s as the golden number for LED. This one plant in my current run got a little more than that for about a week. So, I’ve raised my lights a little and getting an even 600umol/m2/s now. Based on my experience and measurements, I’d recommend 600 as the upper limit for full spectrum LED without CO2.

    Thrips and their damage

    Thanks for posting this. Always good to have a reference.

    Foliar Epsom with Fulvic 5 grams Epsom to 1ltr, 3ml GTH Fulvic to 1 ltr. Spray the underside of the leaves. Do one ASAP, then again 3/4 days later. But what has caused this? What you’re seeing is a symptom. You need to get to the root of the real problem. If it’s a problem now, then it’s gonna be a problem through the whole grow. Mg def means one of two things: too much Ca or Na or P in the mix, or pH out of whack. You need to sort the problem, then the symptoms will go away.

    Thanks Tote! Sure, covering cost of transport is the least we could do.

    Agreed. But logistics will be an issue. Plus, someone will have to donate/ supply enough cuttings for those who want to participate. If we can get over those hurdles, let’s do it.

    Makes sense to all grow the same thing. Maybe even from the same breeder. One guy could grow a kickass Sativa, but it’ll look like shit. Another grows an Indica, and everyone thinks it looks better. Not a fair fight. I think we should also agree on what training is allowed. But your choice of style, ie soil, soilless or hydro. We could subcategorise grow style. So, same strain, limited training options. It’ll make for an interesting comparison. I’m running all LED, and organic soil. No pesticides, not even Neem. I’d love to see how my growing compares to someone running HPS, with the same genetics and also no pesticides.

    I love the idea. But I’d need to know you guys are committed. If we do this, we do it properly. What is the criteria for winning? Biggest plant? Prettiest plant? Heaviest yield? Best product? How will that be judged and verified?
