I’m on Day 8 (8/10 Germination) and I have not received a drain/fill notification. Should I go ahead and do so anyways? Thanks!

  • (Is this rust from the magnet of the [Door] -or- the [HoseHolder]):? :question:

  • (If it is from the [HoseHolder] I’ld recommend separating the hoses and leaving the magnet out of your water buckets like we are doing now): :thinking: :innocent:

@Stephen,

  • (Yes, I shared this here [above (:point_up:)]): (Yes, this also prevents contamination of the clean [FillWater] I did notice as soon as I place the hose in [DrainBucket] it leaks out without hitting [Drain and (AreYouSureYouWantToDrainButton) :warning: :swimming_woman: :laughing: :white_check_mark: ]):

If you are traveling and need to change a day or two just remember the alerts still will generate, but you can clear them easily as well.

Upon conducting my water change today I observed the following stats:

Water out pH: 6.0
Water out EC: 0.5
Water out PPM700: 320
Total water drained from reservoir: 2.4 Gallons

Water in pH: 8.6 (After 6 mL Hydroguard and 2.5 mL Recharge mixed into RO Water)
Water in EC: 0.0
Water in PPM700: 0
Total water syphoned into reservoir 2.1 Gallons

Water in reservoir 3 hours after drain/fill
pH: 5.6
EC: 0.7
PPM700: 470

Below I have posted a picture of my nutrient bottles after fill, you will notice a blue indicator line on the Grobo labels showing where my nutes were measured for week 1

I would love to hear any and all observations based on the above mentioned information. Thank you all very much for taking the time to follow my first grow, it is immensely appreciated!

On another note, Is the support I implemented to “straighten her out” placed peoperly? I worry about it touching the leaves but figured it was better the cotyledons instead of its first set of real leaves, hope I’m correct! Also, when is it advisable to remove the support? What indicators should I look for in order to do so? (Glamour shot below)

Thanks Growers!

I share the same worry. If you would like an alternative option, what I have done in the past is taken a plastic straw, cut it to the almost the length of my trunk, and then slice long ways down the middle of the straw so I can open the straw and wrap it around the base. You’ll find it a bit difficult to work with and get it safely wrapped around your trunk, so rather than just making a single cut down the side of the straw, perhaps cut out a bit larger of a notch.

This would be safe to keep on for the foreseeable future until the trunk thickens up.

Bold but I like it, only have paper straws however :rofl:

Looks good :+1:. As for the leaning I wouldn’t keep it propped up. They move around in the light if you had a time lapse you’d see it swirling around, it’s normal and if anything I’d want her to pick herself up and straighten/strengthen on her own. Only reason I would put a straw or something like your have if the stem was way too tall, but yours isn’t. You can keep it but it’s unnecessary imo, even if it has a slight lean she will pick up on her own.

Copy that, thanks Russ!

Excellent point!! :+1:
Sometimes we just all have to learn/straighten on our own, even if it’s the hard way. Makes us stronger and more self sufficient and less reliant on you and your paper straws!! :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Another solid point that Russ made is that I clearly NEED a camera in there for a time lapse! I want to see her swingin’!
