The Mayor Posted May 29, 2010 Report Share Posted May 29, 2010 Hi everyone. This is only my second post but I've been lurking around here for several months and am jumping in now with a question. My mother plant has been doing well under a big 4ft T5 fixture. She is about 5 months old now, and I've heard but haven't seen much on special mother nutrients. I've been feeding her Fox Farm nutes at half the dosage, and was about to up it to full (thinking I have been under feeding) but then heard that there are specific formulas just for mothers. I'm growing a strain called Lemon Paw, which is a Lemon Skunk/Monkey Paw (with the buds that look like a paw). So it is a sativa/indica mix. It is a real tough strain that grows fast and bushy. My mother is in a 5 gal bubbler stand alone unit. Her branches have all gotten pretty woody in the past month. Not a lot of softer stems that are good for cloning. I don't think the plant is dying, but it isn't thriving either. It tends to often look like it is just starting to fade a bit near the bottom, but doesn't advance really. The top looks great. If I can get her to last until I have the room, I'm likely going to put her in to flower. I just need to make sure I keep her healthy until then. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, there is a lot of helpful information being shared here. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
