Week 6 start of week 7 update, time for a feeding change, we need to start to drop down the PPM's over the last couple of weeks, as we get closer to the flush! A couple of hints on how to bring out more colors in your buds, using these two hints over the last couple of weeks of flower will help you get those colors to pop! This only used if your trying to get more colors to pop, and you are only going to be doing this during the last week or mid way through the last week of flower & your flush! Which for me because i use flawless finish is only a week to nine days max! Or even just doing this during the last week of flush will work to make those colors pop as well! It doesn't do any damage that I have ever seen to my plants when doing this for that short of a period, only do this at the very end of your plant life! If you did this for weeks on end it would stop your plant from being able to absorb some nutrients, such as phosphorus, and you will see clear deterioration in your stems and leaves, they will become brittle and can break easily, it will also stall root growth and would damage your roots if you did this for a longer period of time! If you think about it cannabis plants have adapted to be in the last stages of flower naturally when the weather is getting cooler outside! This is why you will see a lot more color showing in outdoor plants versus indoor, or at least where I live in Canada! Cooler night temps and day temps and water is also cooler this time of year, even coming out of your tap at home! People use water coolers to keep their water cool all the time while growing! You want your water temps to be between 15 to 23 degrees C or 59 to 73 degrees F for the min and max at all other times during the plants life! I PERSONALLY WOULDN'T GO COLDER THEN 60 DEGREES F! Temps between 62 and 66 degrees F have never caused any issues for me, as long as I have been growing, going on 10 or 11 years now! Going above 20 degrees C or 68 Degrees F drops down your oxygen levels also at 68 degrees F oxygen is reduced to around 9PPM in your water, and you should then be adding tech grade peroxide 29% into your water to get levels up! This hinders your nutrient absorption, with 23 degrees C or 73 degrees F being the maximum temperature for proper nutrient absorption, and your oxygen levels can drop as low as 7 PPM at that high of a temperature! As I said in the video, you can drop your water temps down to mid to low 60's F and things will be fine! Just make sure to do this at the end of your plants life or flowering cycle and flush! I try to mimic nature when I grow! I drop my lighting down throughout flower too! I am only running my lights for 10 hours on per day right now to finish out the flowering cycle! Hope that makes sense to you and when to be dropping those water temps down! I should have been a little more specific right in the video! But here it is now! Then we end the video with trichome shots from the end of week 6, showing how the trichomes are changing from clear to cloudy! You need to be watching every 3 or 4 days, when your getting down to the last couple of weeks of flower as things can change quickly! Even if you have a strain that says it is 9 weeks to flower. Your ladies are not ready until you have about 10 to 15% ambering showing throughout each of your plants! This can happen before or after the amount of time that the plants are supposed to take to flower! Once your trichomes are there you want to start your flush! So we will be watching things every few days from here on out! Duane & Proud Canadian Cannabis.
