    Cool BD OG Kush JohnnyMan's Attempt No. 2 (yeah, you read correctly: he's at it again)

    Yes, JohnnyMan has not given up.

    He is attempting another try at growing Black Diamond OG Kush.
    His first attempt failed miserably (you can read the grow report here), and today he will be killing the 5 clones that he had harmed over these past 30 days. There is nothing to salvage out of them and starting over was decided to be the best course of action. JohnnyMan blames himself for listening to too many people, many with conflicting opinions and suggestions.

    With this grow I will be closely mentored by one of the high-level growing experts here: Rednamalas

    He has also gifted me more clones, and I have dutifully promised not to screw these up. He has also agreed to closely monitor my progress to ensure my success, and I'm very grateful.

    I spent some time with him on the weekend and I learned his watering/feeding schedule and style. I intend on adhering to it. I was allowed to tour his garden and was embarrassed and almost ashamed of the state of my plants compared to his. This is clearly someone who I should closely follow and learn from. His plants were amazingly large, vibrant, and healthy compared to mine. While inspecting his crop I kept asking myself, "And you waited this long before listening to him??????!!!! What a big maroon!"

    So I spent another $270 this weekend on

    General Hydroponics 3-Part Flora Series for food.
    KoolBloom powder for bud development
    Air pump and air stone to add air to my water
    Bluelab ppm pen

    I currently have an overwhelming number of clones under 2 T5 florescent lights. Red gave me more than I could ever use with the idea that I may see some death in this initial lot before potting.
    They are currently sitting on top of a fridge in my basement. They are on a 18 on/6 off light schedule. I know I could 24 on, but I like to give the plants some darkness as they would in the natural world.

    I will post pictures when I pot them, and I'm hoping that will be in 7-10 days from now. And absolutely no more screwing up!!

    Thanks for looking.

    Thanks 420grower,

    It's like I have been given a few mulligans (golf term) now with Red around, and it's hard to express how grateful and lucky I feel to have found him.

    But, I won't need anymore lifelines now.

    My path is straight and narrow, with no deviations from the proven schedule that has been given to me.

    I will ask first before doing anything from assumption. If it has Red's blessing then I will I do it.

    Very true, Crazy_Eagle.

    It was also initially difficult explaining to the wife why I need these new food products. But she easily understood the logic of following a simple tried-and-true schedule - it just took me a while.

    I cringe at the purchase of more salts, I'm just panicing 'cause you're not organicing, but the Salamander has yet to post a pic of a sad plant so I expect you to see better results this time through

    You'll do well with GH nutes. I use the same formula but with Floralicious instead of Koolbloom, and don't even check ppm. Never a problem, don't even bother adjusting ph (7.0 from tap before nutrients). I think one of the basics for keeping it simple is synthetic plant food. Organic may be 'cleaner' or what have you ( I agree it makes nicer/smoother smoke when done right) but with synthetic plant food and a set schedule, there aren't many surprises to watch out for.

    Good on Red for throwing more your way.

    Hi dabbin,

    I bought a ppm pen this past weekend. I picked up two good size jugs of ph up & ph down two weeks ago. I will be adjusting for both.

    The ppm part is new to me. I suspect the easy way is lower the PPMs is to add more water.

    Shadimar,

    You are fortunate, a doctor is in.

    First, sit down, take a deep breath and think of a happy place. Yes, like Red's grow room. Happy.

    OK. You are now in a good place. Good.

    Go quickly to your favorite THC intake device. Hurray as there will not be much time before the panic will return.

    Think happy grow room. Weed galore! Flowering in 2nd week. You can't believe the canopy.

    Ok, now take that hit and you'll be medicated again.

    And if the starting water already has too many salts... you get an RO filter or even get one with an ion exchange filter too, it's getting pretty common for them to be standard with the RO filter

    OK everyone.

    I have a bunch of clones and clearly need help.

    It seems clear I need an RO device. Do they come in metric? Should I get two and RO twice? Are there organic versions?

    So many things to worry about...

    Yes there are organic versions, but the draw back is a slight green tint to the water...

    Lol, ROLNÍK.

    You don't necessarily need an RO filter - Reverse Osmosis. They'll pump out two hoses of water, one fast "brine" hose and one slow filtered hose. You'll only need it if your tap water is too high is dissolved solids before even adding nutrients.

    There's no difference in RO filters for our purposes, chem fed or natural it still gets the same scrubbed water. All it means is that the water has been cleaned of salts etc so you can add in your own and not kill the plants if your water was too salty for them etc.

    Don't try to daisy chain them, once through is enough.

    And just to make sure you don't spend money unnecessarily, you might not even need one; test your water with the ppm meter and ask red if the tap water is already too high or not

    What's too high? I had stuck my new pen in the water and I think it read 125.

    I'd get it out now and test it again but I put it back in it's container, and I'm really comfortable, and I need a bong visit (read that again but with a whinny voice).

    Oh, I have to go. I think I hear one of the clones asking for another garden party story.....

    JM stick with what Red says and you will do well. This isnt rocket science and you have a great mentor. So just wondering why your asking about RO. Ask Red do as your told and all will be well in Johnny Land. Be well phatty

    YOU DONT NEED A RO UNIT !!!! fuk dude tap water is perfectly fine. you have 6 plants to worry about a ro unit is the biggest waste of money. our water is good right out ofthe tap. my ppm of tap water is 120 also john.Your getting sucked into the nonsense again.
    ro units work best with well water. our water is already treated and is great water.
