when the top leaves are facing 45-90 degrees, u know your plants are healthy and viberant.
these great white sharks display extremely tight internodes, lateral branching, thick stocks and dark green leaves. even after 7 days of flowering a very sweet, rich, pungent and skunky smell ( like freshly smoked herb) fills this cabinet and room as i do the weekly res change. it just smells like world class pot:) this same plant is pictured above with a wider angle.
wow, look at the difference from last week.

in a week most roots and plants above have more then doubled in size with no co2! the great white shark from greenhouse seeds is one of the worlds most awarded varieties. its heritage is a white widow crossed to a super skunk. it recommended for indoor hydroponic set ups add does very well in "sea of green". a perfect strain for these cabinets. hoprfully we can get her to finish in 45-49 days. we'll see what happens:)
day 7( week 1 flower). thanks to the new model producer and clones taken from seeded moms, these plants grew from an average of 4 inches to 8 i9nches in a week. they could have been flipped to 12/12 at day 4, but i wanted to take them to day 7. what a difference from the week before! master secret: make sure all your moms grew from seed to get the "f-1" cuttings to grow with. i've seen yields increase 15% and crop time shortend by 25% using cuttings from seeded moms versus commercially produced cuttings from generations of replication.
week 1 flower- add co2 and four 4 ft t-5 sunblasters this week.

day 1- great white shark- co2 will be added once plants show signs of optimal growth. master secret- if plants droop , curl or wilt during the first 3-5 days hps light, its due to the fact that the roots are looking for their permanaat home in the nute solution and brighter light intensity adaptation. do not try to fix the wilting!!! let them do their thing. these ladies took 3 days to root into the 3" cubes and put directly into the producer. these are all about 3-4 inches tall and will be given 7 days of vegetative growth. go to the purple kush post for new veg feeding program:)
