{April 2, 2009}   Time for flowering

Here are the girls about a week after the move into the flower room. Looking nice and comfortable. At this point, I change the lighting schedule from 18 on/6 off to 12 on/12 off. The light change is the most important cue for the plants to flower. I also flush them with FloraClean for a watering. When they are all nice and desalted, I mix a new batch of nutes to induce flowering. This cocktail is 1 tsp/gal MagiCal, Vegan Compost Tea, FloraNecter then 1/4 tsp/gal M.O.A.B. (to induce flower…Open Sesame is another good one) and then equal parts Flora Nova veg and bloom formulas. Gradually bring the EC up to 1300-1500 and adjust the ph to 5.8-6.3. I always use r/o water as it has a very low EC to begin with. This allows you to pack in the maximum amount of controlled components.
