Week 4:  My efforts have worked and everything looks green!

Strains in the tents:  Russian Doll, Sour Key OG, God's Pussy and Pineapple Express (scroll down for details by strain).

Grow method:  Indoor SCROG (although the screen is not on yet) with LED.

LED Details:  2x California Lightworks 1100 + 2x California Lightworks 550, on our VEG A setting of 50: Red, 99 White, 99 Blue for 20 hours.

Gear we are using:  Pure Tents, California Lightworks 1100s and 550s LEDs and controller, Pure Pots (10 gallon), Promix HP, Dollar Store EZ Pods, Green House Powder Feed, BlueSky Organics Organic Reactor.

Excited to say our corrections from last week worked!  I increased the light hours and did a top soil application of Organic Reactor.  I started to see all the plants bounce back in a day or so.  I will continue to use the Organic Reactor as a preventative means, to boost vitality with an application once a week or so.  Remember, just scratch the surface, sprinkle on top and water as usual!.
I also did the first nutrient application of Green House Powder Feed. 
Why did we choose Green House Powder Feed? Powder Feed is the easiest way for beginners to calibrate nutrients in their grow for pretty awesome results.    I used the short-flowering feed, and each packet is a single use for me.  I just mix it with water according to the instructions and feed every other watering (which for me usually works out to once, maybe twice a week (depending on how dry the air is).  So I am basically alternating a Reactor application (plus watering) with Powder Feed application (mixed directly with the water).  I will continue with the Reactor for the duration of the veg period. I will use the Powder Feed the whole way through veg and most of flower, stopping (and flushing with water only for the remainder) when there are only 2 weeks of flower left before finish.
Because I am scrogging I will actually be removing the two weakest plants overall (and sending them somewhere else to grow).  In the end I will be left with 3 plants of each in my larger tents and 2 in my smaller tents.  

Strain name:  Sour Key OG
Genetics:  Amnesia Haze X (Super Lemon Haze X OG Kush)
Flowering time:  8-9 weeks
Yield:  Heavy
Level of difficulty:  Medium
Notes:  Huge improvement across the board!  Everything is looking healthy and happy in this tent.  Because I sprouted an extra Sour Key OG, if everything turns out well (and specifically the God's Pussy and Russian Doll) I will move the smallest one, on the left to another space to finish.  If both God's Pussy don't turn out well I will move both out and split all 4 of these in my smaller tents (and eliminate God's Pussy from the SCROG grow).  I have done this one before and I know I like it (or anything with Amnesia, one of my faves), so I am happy to keep all 4.

Strain name:  Pineapple Express
Genetics:  Big Bud X Skunk
Flowering time:  8 weeks
Yield:  Heavy
Level of difficulty:  Easy
Notes: Last week everything in this tent was on the struggle bus but this week, everything is looking lush and green!  Looks like my remedies worked!  These gals are still small but I expect a burst of vitality to come in the next week or so.
 
Genetics:  Kush X Kush
Flowering time:  9-10 weeks
Yield:  Heavy
Level of difficulty:  Medium
Notes:  My littlest seedling has not come along as well as I would have liked.  While everything else has bounced back I'm seeing very slow progress overall on this one.  Before I put my net into place, I have to eliminate 2 plants (and let them grow and flower somewhere else).  If this little seedling does not bounce back in the next 2 or 3 weeks, I will remove these ones entirely from the grow, and spread out my Sour Key OG seeds.  I am seriously reconsidering using the EZ Grow pucks again, they are turning out to be a bit of a pain.
 
Genetics:  Kuban Sativa x Northern Lights x AK-47
Flowering time:  8-9 weeks
Yield:  Medium
Level of difficulty:  Easy
Notes:  The Russian Doll were mostly all doing okay (with the exception of maybe that little one on the left).  They all bounced back for the most part!  If both of the God's Pussy bounce back fully, I will move the slowest growing Russian Doll to another tent.  I should have a better idea next week.
