Heartbreak in the homestretch

Just learned one of the most painful lessons in hydroponics– mistakes are amplified and death comes quickly.

I guess I mixed up a batch of nutrients and got the proportions way off because that grow bucket dropped and it dropped fast. I now have no new plants up and coming and still have just 6 plants rapidly finishing their bloom cycle. Those six look great, but this seriously changes the dynamic of my grow, and not in a good way. Oh well, I guess I can start taking cuttings at a faster clip now. So that’s a good thing.

The six in bloom look great, though. That first one that I worried about getting too tall? Well it got too tall. I didn’t have the heart to cut it short, so I bent it gently to about 90 degrees and secured it to the trellis with fuzzy pipe cleaners.
