Help with my first grow - granddaddy purple

Do you top the water off every other day? Probably why it drained so quick and took so long to fill, it was low or empty. I am filling every day now and only a little further on than you are. That happens sometimes with fills or you have to try to start it a few times or it stops and still runs a little. Let it go until it stops itself, it will eventually.

Oh really? That makes sense then!

I checked underneath and the root system is vast now (also very healthy) so clearly she is just drinking a lot.

Excited for transition tho, although nervous about running out of height after stretch! Am I right to expect roughly a 50% increase in height?

Yes, make sure to try to do a fill every other day soon if not now. Mine is already needing a lot every day. I just leave a bucket next to it to make it easier.

It will jump in size very quickly. I think once mine got going, 3-4 inches once in a day or so. It can out grow the box, sometimes down the road, you might need to put strings or wires in to try to keep it down if it gets so big.

Awesome man. :sunglasses::+1:t2:Looks great. Yeah Same here @Willcol1 @TheDogMan I did the exact same. Thanks for the recommendation dogman. Just throw the hose in my gallon jug every two days. Fills about half to three quarter gallon. Works great.

So after reading about your connection issues. Here’s what happens to me and what solved it for me. When I go to do a fill. Tells me no connection but my blue light is still slowly blinking though. So I just pull down the page to refresh and it’s fine. I don’t know if you have similar or different issues. Also when I go to settings and click about and WiFi says no connection or update. Again pull down to refresh. Mine goes normal. Hope this helps. I’m going to tag @Todd.grobo and see what he thinks about our situations. :+1:t2::sunglasses:

Have you tried rebooting your phone? Forcing a refresh is a great fix, but I would always go through the following steps.

Firmware up to date?
Phone app up to date?
Reboot phone or try PC (I have my grobos saved to my PC to, its easier to do 2 drain and fills simultaneously)
Power cycle.

So sounds like you covered some of those steps. Try the rest and let us know next drain and fill how she goes. If you’re still experiencing an issue we can always dig in deeper at support@grobo.io

Day 4/14 Transition

Seeing more significant growth and getting very bushy quickly.

Should I wait until first couple of weeks flowering and do one big defoliate or just a bit at a time?

I’m right in focusing on the middle/lower part of the plant, plus any big fan leaves perhaps blocking bud sites?

I’m still so new to this I just worry about too much stress, but i have to say not a lot has bothered her yet!

Also was checking out the app and they have fixed some bugs. Including the WiFi disconnect notification during drain/fill. Thank you @Todd.grobo and extended grobonians. Much appreciated :+1:t2::sunglasses:
