Are these little guys good or bad?

Hey all,

Are this little guys good or bad? Been finding them on some of my plants recently.




Are these spots an issue?

08 April 2017 - 06:07 PM

Hey guys,

Are these spots an issue? It's only on a handful of plants and mostly only only older leaves near the bottom. Also it's all near the front half of the leaves, towards the leaf tips.

Does it just look like damage from laying in the dirt a while back maybe or could it be some sort of leaf spot?



Potting Up Sizes

08 February 2017 - 10:31 AM

Hey guys,

I'm considering going straight from cells to 6in "1 gallon" pots this year instead of solo cups, for the ones I'll keep for myself, to give me a little more room for growth since I can't put them out until mid to late May normally. The last big grow I did, I ran into all sorts of issues due to leaving them in solo cups too long, the roots actually plugged the drain holes in the cups and I didn't notice right away, and almost lost them.

Are there any issues to watch for when going to larger pots initially or just be sure to not over water?



Measuring PH

Hey guys,

What meters do you use/reccomend for testing water and soil PH?



How often to replace T8 bulbs?

02 February 2017 - 02:37 PM

Hey guys, I run my 6500k T8 bulbs 18 hours per day from February 1st to late May/early June. That's roughly 2160 hours per season and I have 2 seasons on them, so about 4320 hours so far. This year will be the 3rd season on them. They're still bright, but noticeably not as bright as new bulbs are. Should I replace them for optimal growing results?

I've read that fluorescent bulbs degrade not only in total light output, but spectrum can also change a bit as time goes on and they wear out.
