Description

Finish Bulking/Flower Initiation: Optimum conditions during the vegetative period, beginning at transplant, needed for the root to reach the edge of the container AND to make the plant receptive to flower initiation.

Media:

  • pH: 5.5 – 5.8
  • EC: 1.5 – 1.75 Light: Provide 3,500 – 4,500 foot candles (12 – 20 total mols or 35,000 –45,000 lux) to hasten flower induction. Supplemental lighting under low light conditions at 350 – 450 foot candles (35,000 – 45,000 lux) will enhance shoot and root growth.

Temperature: 68° – 70°F (20° – 21°C) nights, 64° – 67° (18° – 19°C) days for 14 days or until roots have reached the bottom of the container. Then temperatures may be lowered to 62° – 65°F (16° – 18°C) day and night.

Average Daily Temperature (ADT): 67°F (19°C)

Moisture: Alternate between moisture levels wet (4) and medium (2). Allow soil to reach level (3) before re-saturating to (4).

Humidity: 40% – 70%. Provide horizontal airflow to aid in drying down the media through evapotranspiration, allowing better penetration of oxygen to the roots.

Fertilizers: Feed at 100 – 150 ppm nitrogen. Under high light conditions, apply an ammonium-based feed (17-5-17). Under low light conditions, apply a calcium-based feed (14-4-14). Under high light and long or extended days, an ammonium-based feed (20-10-20) is preferred. Watch for low calcium and magnesium levels, which may result in stunted, chlorotic plants with marginal leaf burn.

Fertilizer: Potassium nitrate.
