    Hope you're right (as usual) and the plant recovers. I didn't want to put it in a bigger pot so it won't be taller, here we are not allowed to grow this stuff and discretion is advised. I will stick to the tent and DWC grows from now on, much easier to control. After the little increase of nutrients and Maldon Sea salt, the new leaves have better color, just counting the days to harvest 😁, thanks for your always good advices, cheers ...

    Thanks Shadey, you always seem to find the right words for each situation. Maybe the question is to find the correct strain for this conditions and adapt to them. You are right (as usual) with the outdoor plant, still damaged but willing to live, please check the pics. No space for being bored here😁 , cheers ...

    Oh well, those How-to-grow Bibles say you should have less than 55% of humidity and 40% the last weeks to collect more resin, but right now I trust more your experience, let's see what happens. Perhaps a second fan would make me sleep better 😁, I think I have more gray hair now after all these episodes. Maybe I should collect stamps instead, cheers ...

    Hi Shadey, last time my Early Skunk was showered with some rain I did nothing and it finished with mildew and totally wasted. That's why last night I tried to dry it, if I would have left it wet all the night wet sure it would have been worse. Maybe you're right and I should have acted differently, I started with the hair dryer before I remembered I had also the leaf blower: Right now it's 1:27 A.M. here, so no chance to post a picture. At least the one in the tent looks good: but the humidity still goes from 64% to 73%, despite the electric dehumidifier I bought. I don't know if I should move the tent to a smaller room so I could better control the humidity in that room, as the air in the tent refreshes constantly with the outside humid air. Didn't know these plants were so sensible, hope you're right and it gets somehow recovered. I think all the most common mistakes a noob can do are in this post, hope it helps other people to avoid them πŸ˜‰ , thanks for your help, I read your growing post and indeed you have a solution for everything and tools to accomplish it, I'm really far from that 😁, cheers ...

    Yesterday it was a starry night so I left the plant outside, Before going to sleep I heard a short rain shower. I went outside and tried to dry the plant with a hair dryer and a blower (used to blow away leaves). I managed to dry it, but this afternoon the plant was like this: I first thought it could be a nutrient burn out but the one that is in the tent (with the same nuts recipe) apparently is OK (still night for her, will have a better look later with lights on). Maybe this northern climate is not the best for outside cultivation, is there any fix or it will finish as the Early Skunk with mildew everywhere? Is it another disease? It's hard to be a noob πŸ˜’, thanks for your help ...

    Thank you both for hearing my pleas πŸ˜€. I'm willing to buy the small pot theory, didn't know this strain was so tall and didn't want to let it grow higher (not so tall tent), That's why I keep them as they are. I will add Epsom Sea Salt and increase a little the nuts to see how they react and check it back in a week. I won't overburn them, just knew things weren't running OK but hadn't your skills and experience to find out what was going wrong, appreciate your help. It was my fault as I bought this Amnesia seeds without checking (not available in that web) all their characteristics before. Hope all these failures will help other noobs to do things right from the beginning, you guys are a great help but this is not an easy stuff and there's much info to read before starting any grow, thanks for the links and support ...

    Hi Shadey, sorry to insist but it doesn't look like a healthy plant to me πŸ˜“, keeps losing leaves, I will follow your advice to keep the actual doses of nutrients if you think I must do so, but both plants have pale green and yellow leaves, and that worries me, cheers ...

    Hi again, Shadey, as the plant that is in the outside has the same nutrients regime than the other I thought it would be easier to take pictures so you can see the pale green leaves and yellow spots in the leaves. Please have a look and let me know what you think about, thanks ...

    Well, they look pale green: I know an excess of N would be bad but also lack of it. I have trained the branches away from the light in case it could be also an excess of heat, but as I read somewhere, with a N deficiency: " The lower leaves will become yellow and wither. When a leaf is dying, it begins at the tips and moves towards the inside." I don't know if losing leaves in this early stage of flowering is normal. The rope I walk through is too tight as my knowledge and I'm afraid to fall again, those fallen leaves won't grow again, shall I don't do anything as you suggest? This is very stressing as a hobby 😁, I would love to have less percentage of errors on the trials, you have an important role in mending that situation and I do appreciate that, cheers ...

    Oh well, enough errors right now, I was adjusting the PH with figures that were for an hydroponic cultivation and this is a soil one. I read that the first month of flowering I should keep the Nitrogen high, but after two weeks the Flora Gro is lowered a lot. As the expected flowering period should be longer to this strain (up to eight or nine weeks), should I keep the first two weeks formula two weeks more? I read las that I should flush the soil and cut the nutrients two weeks before the harvest, how can I know when that moment arrives? Just two weeks of flowering right now, I prefer to learn from your knowledge and experience rather than from my errors 😁, that's why I am always so thankful, cheers ...

    Hi Shadey, wasn't really a good idea, after two hours in night mode the humidity dropped from 63 % to 58 %, but the temperature raised from 74 F to 79 F, so in day mode it should be even worse 😴 . I put now the exhaust of the air duct pointing directly to the open netted window, let's see if the mix of both breaths of air does the trick. I think I will keep my noob condition for several months 😁, thanks for your patience ...

    Thanks for the reply, yes, it is a quite entertaining hobby with challenges 😁, do you think once installed the air duct I should close the netted window or would have problems with air quality and oxygen if done? I'm scared of the outside plant, at the end of October the weather here will be very rainy and humid, the next ones will be all DWC indoor for sure. I am not going to be an expert like you (with professional skills and equipment), but as long that I will be able to vape my own weed I'll be the happiest man on earth, cheers and thanks again...

    High Shadey, already installed the oscillating fan and humidifier, now the humidity rank goes from 60% and 70%, depending on the light. I was looking on some spanish forums and there was a fellow hanging socks filled with rice and salt to avoid this 🀣. I thought that maybe if I put a curved air duct in the extracting fan and put the other extreme into the tent again in the hole that is in the bottom prepared to install a fan that takes air into the tent, as the air is already cooler and with less humidity, it would help lowering it. What do you think? The buds in the tent are more developed than the ones that are in the outside, I am counting the days left for the crop πŸ€ͺ, hope everything goes fine this time, no rainy days lately, cheers ...

    Thanks Shadey, that seems to be a good option, I will look for it, appreciate ...

    Thanks Shadey for the reply, the tent has already an extracting fan in the top. When I bought the kit, there was another fan as an extra, this one to force air into the tent, I didn't think it was necessary but with my recent experience with the mildew πŸ˜ͺ I wanted to avoid it for good and was thinking that maybe that second fan would help. The tent has the same humidity than the room, 78% right now, that happens with the lights off and lower temperature, as you say, I don't know if moving the air faster with that fan would drop the humidity, I have two netted windows opened below. I have already removed some big leaves, that was a good tip 😁. Hopefully, the dehumidifier will arrive soon and those buds are just starting to grow, let see if that also helps, I will let you know the progress, cheers ...
