    Start of week 4 in FlowerOk, the clones have pretty much snapped into shape, you can see by these photo's that the two clones have stretched out and got some nice side branches, they are going to give up some nice bud, that's for sure!Once again, these are sitting in the stand by tote while I mix up the 3 week nutes in the 14 gallon tote.THIS IS WEEK 3, not week 4. I fucked up the title on one of my last few post that thru me off from there.

    Shit, I hope I didn't screw up my days? :5eek:

    UPDATE: I went back and fixed one of my post, but the title I couldn't change, I do know now, I am in week 3 of Flower and not week 4. I did figure out what I did wrong. Here I thought since I picked a Monday to do as my res change, I would not have this problem....LOL I need to go back to the calendar ways.

    I realized, I did veg for 3 weeks, then where I should have posted the start of week 2 of flower, I put week 3. I'm glad BB caught the time laps. At least now I know I have a extra week to flower. :roffl: It is looking good though, guess I am getting depressed, I have to wait for my other plants from seed to get big enough to clone off of, and it's going to be a few weeks. I did clone off of the white widow today, but I should have waited a week, it's got a soft stem, and they are not as easy in the clone dome as the hard stems are. But hey, I'm growing!

    Which is more than I can say ATM. I've got 20 cuts of Jackberry stalled in the tray. :BangHead:

    Remember you're feeding for the week to come not the week gone by. Like nip pointed out, feed week 4 as soon as 3 is over. Good luck!! you'll have the cloning down in no time.

    Started week 4 of flower

    Man, ole man, it's out of control, the plant is so big, I can barley move it, I broke one of the many main branches doing the res change today and this week it went from a nice root ball's to the whole tub being one big ass root ball...:coolbounce: I was able to gorilla tape the branch that broke and it should be ok, but there is so much going on, I think I will get way way way more bud that I ever expected, I def know what to look forward for next time, this was and is a great learning curve for me. I will get some pic's on here tomorrow, It's just crazy how much a DWC can do for two little 4 inch clones, it's is like having more than 4 plants from seed from what it looks like now, buds are forming EVERYWHERE, little side branches are now big main branches. HOLY SHIT< THE HOLY BUD GRAIL has been brought upon me this time.

    great job, one of the hardest things about dwc is cleaning and water change when you go into flower. you should be fine with cracked branch, it's happened to me more than once

    CREATIVE GARDENER Cured Fat Sticky Bud

    I was thinking you had 2 plants working in that tub(we're watching). If you still have both in there I'd say that they're roots are mangled into 1 huge mass. In that water there's no resistance like in soil, they go crazy. If they get too big you may ask some of the more experienced hydro growers here about maybe trimming them back a little. But good job and good luck!!!

    This is the big draw of hydro. Insano growth rates.

    Update Pic's Week 4 of flowerHere are a couple of the pic's I took today. You can see in the third pic the roots in the water. During week 3 the plant drank a lot of water, at least a few gallons. I didn't think I was going to have to tie anything down, but I will have to tie a few branches up. They are just flopping around.

    Looking good man.... I find the res changes easy if you have a spare tub to Mic nutes in than just lift off the plants and put on new tub....easy peasy

    CREATIVE GARDENER Cured Fat Sticky Bud

    Have you got a fan working on them? That moving air and gentle swaying motion really helps strengthen the stems. I've had plants get flimsy and topple over without some moving air on them. And if they get to draining the tub pretty quickly you might top it off with a couple gal of plain ph'd water a couple days before the res change.

    Gonna be a monster dude, Good luck!!!

    Yeah, I got some new deeper tubs today to help out with the next res change, the smaller tub is to small to hold the root ball now at the change. I do have a fan, all of the branches were holding up before the res change, I think they wilted a little there at the res change. Also since it is from clone and the side branches turned into other main branches, it's way more than I expected, it's way bigger than I thought it would be from just two little clones. I am def sold on the DWC. I am going to do 2 clones every three weeks and it will keep me in bud and keep less plants in the veg and flower rooms, which is great all around winner for everything I need.

    Now all I have to do is cycle thru all my seeds (about 26 different strains) to find the perfect strain for doing my set up. Then I can get more seeds and try more.

    I forgot to add the pic didn't show all the growth on the left side, there is about another foot an that side that the pic cut off, it's amazing to say the least.
