  1. Cheap feed test

    From the album Summer 2019

  2. Going to be installing my feed timer next cycle. So in the next few weeks, be setting up my pump system to be automated. Has anyone seen a jump in their yield from this? I currently feed anywhere from twice daily to every other day. Depending on the amount. Guidance on the subject also welcome!
  3. I have just harvested my first, in a few years and was not entirely happy on the yield..... I am looking to upgrade my additives this time around and run the exact same environment and strain but upgrade to a system rather than hand feed and I am thinking of trying different additives. What are peoples opinions on Buddha Tree additives? Last time around I used the whole shogun range and followed the chart on the milder side of things... I am thinking of using Genesis base nutrients and Buddha tree additives.... any one got experience with both ? Mr_Exclusive
  4. Been looking at a few and not sure I can make my mind up. I saw something that delivered even watering over the top of the plants so one side of the pot didn't get all of the feed. I'm currently watering daily / bi-daily manually. I have a drain system I made myself, controlled by a wier system and a microprocessor to pump out when it fills. So would just be the drip system. I've got my eye on one from Growell, a 12 pot setup. But of course, never having used a drip feed any advice is welcome. Using 25Litre wilma pots currently.
  5. As per the title, what does everyone think of TopMax? I'm using the Biobizz outdoor try-pack at the moment but I've only been using the fish mix and plan to use the bloom soon. However, I have a bottle of TopMax and was unsure whether or not to bother with the stuff. Is it likely to complicate things or does it really help with flower production? I'm Happy not to use it if it's really crap.
  6. Hi, Could someone please tell me if I can feed Canna A, B right to the end or if I need to be starting bloom feeds now instead? Trying to keep costs down started out on a budget now seems to be like I need so much more.. I'm 30 days in, plants look good, supplemented with Cal Mag also. Cheers guys.
  7. Budda Tree coco a+b nutrients

    Trying out new nutrients.
  8. Hi all, I fucked up and ordered Bloom nutes for soil (Dutch Pro) and I needed hydro. I can't return them as they're open as I didn't notice until I was about to use it . From what I can see on the Dutch pro website, it's just not as strong. What do you all think? can I use it or have I wasted £50? I'm using a Wilma System The Hydro nutes: 4.9%NO3 5.9%K2O 1.3%SO 0.006%B 0.015%Mn 0.4%NH4 3.7%CaO 0.4%Na2O 0.002%Cu 0.002%Mo 2.1%P2O5 1.4%MgO 0.3%CI 0.021%Fe 0.006%Zn N-P-K 5-2-6 TOTAL The Soil nutes: 4.4%NO3 5.5%K2O 1.1%SO 0.006%B 0.015%Mn 0.4%NH4 3.7%CaO 0.2%Na2O 0.002%Cu 0.002%Mo 1.7%P2O5 1.0%MgO 0.2%CI 0.013%Fe 0.004%Zn
  9. OK, I'm planning to switch from living soil to something a bit more cost-effective. Growing only one or two autos indoors. I've thought about using H&G Batmix, mixing in some worm shit and going with a basic Biobizz Try pack, possibly with ES on stand-by. The problem is the cost. I'm pretty sure there are growers out there doing it for a fraction of the price. Does anyone have an economical solution? I just discovered Vertafort - dead cheap. Anyone use it?
  10. Hi all, running Coco, I usually feed with a consistent pH of 5.9. Doing some studies into Nitrogen and it's major component chlorophyll I came across some range charts. I've previously seen people use Cal Mg with Coco, this would tell me I'm dropping both to potentially zero on feeds. With this in mind, I noticed a 5.9 pH feed actually prohibits the absorption of other compounds. Would it be good practice to range the feeds at 5.9 then 6.5 (progress or at the very least repeatably) to ensure the full range is taken? Any experience on this welcome.
  11. Hi guys, I am about to start growing some autos in 3 gallon bubble pots, DWC style grow. I bought a load of Canna Aqua (not everyone's favourite I know - but I was suckered by some dude's ridiculous looking grow on Youtube ) and I was wondering what type of volumes to use. I intended to just follow the Canna guide for light feeding but I heard that Autos typically don't eat as much as photo plants. I grew some photos in the past and followed the guide and they burned!! Can anyone advise from their experience if the light feeding guide is realistic for autos? If not I will probably just start off one third the recommended and see how they do. I was advised in the past that you know the feed level is correct when the EC does not drop by the time the water is changed. The idea being that the plants are taking the same ratio of nutes and water, or does this just mean that you are wasting loads of food when the water is changed? Thanks a lot, T
  12. So I'm going to order some nutrients and soil today .. What shall I order .. how much do I need .. i have 8 pots .. newbie to growing .. how do I measure and mix them do I use a jug or ?.. any feeding plans would be a real big help .. tia
  13. Hi, Quick question please. I have 80L of nutrient mix left over from last res change. It's been sitting there for about 3-4 days. Its RO water mixed with Plant Magic Hydro chems. Is it ok to use for res top ups or should I start fresh? Does it "go off"? Cheers
  14. Hi everyone! I'm just about to start my first ever grow, Auto blackberry Kush, as I've heard it's a good beginner strain, I'm certainly a beginner!! I have a couple of things I am confused about and wondered if any of you guys might be able to help shed any light please (Setup) I'm using 2 x 11 litre airpots in a 70x70x140 growtent Marshydro 300 wat led 2 x 6 inch clip fans A rhino hobby 6 inch extractor fan connected to the carbon filter 2 x 11 litre Airpots (Nutrients) Canna Rhizotonic Canna A+B Canna Flush (Grow Medium) Canna Coco natural/Perlite I'm confused about how much water and also what ratio of nutrients to add to the water too, I've seen various answers to this question, but I suppose it all relates to grow medium and pot size etc...(i'm using 11 litre airpots) Also I'm unsure if I should keep the clip fans running all the time (even when the LEDs are turned off - I'm going with 18/6 light schedule) I'm also assuming I should keep the carbon filter and extractor running constantly throughout the grow? Sorry if these are dumb questions and I've missed something obvious! Any advice or help would be very much appreciated Thanks guys!
  15. Hi all, This is my 1st grow and about a week into 12/12. I have noticed these shiny patches on a few leaves and some older marks have gone brown along with a deformed leaf. At first i thought water splash but have been cautious and more have appeared and on some higher leaves. They have been fed following the canna coco chart for hard water and normal feeding. So im thinking either environmental or perhaps deficency? I dont think its bugs as i havent seen any but then i dont realy know what im looking for?? My temperatures and rh fluctuated abit since going into flower as we had hotter days and i put in the extra light(250w2700k cfl). At the worst they hit 31°c and 75rh, i have since added 2 pc fans by a vent and temperatures have been more consitant at 27°c 55rh daytime and 20°c 40rh night time, but still varys a little. Im awaiting an extractor and filter when i got the money which im hoping will keep the environment more consitant. They are in a 1x1x2 tent with 2 pc fans by intake vent and a small oscilating fan inside. Lighting is 250w 2700k cfl, x4 55w 3000k cfl and x2 20w 2700k cfl. Thanks.
  16. What are your favorite 'SOIL' based reliable go to nutrients that you swear by? I'm currently using the BioBizz range with Maxicrop Original Seaweed, but with BioBizz its seemed easy to overfeed, so you have to keep them lite but i'm still not convinced by BioBizz. I've also tried DutchPro but didn't get on with these at all. So i'm looking for an alternative nutrient regime to feed the Auto OG KUSH strain i've just acquired. Looking possibly into the Fox Farm, Plant Magic - Oldtimer Organic Grow Bloom, or Advanced Nutrients range but still undecided. I'm interested to know what the seasoned farmers on here use to feed their autoflowers with successful results.
  17. Hey folks! Genuine question here about E.C. and how you feed your plants. For me, I tent to go by eye as opposed to regimented weekly grow chart schedules. I just wanted to know with other people are doing with their feeds. I've attached a bunch of images below. I took these off the internet, basic google search, so it's more about their size and development than anything strain particular. So, I start my plants in flowering with an E.C. of 1.2 and I bring it up to 1.9 at most. according to the images below, I would give the following bud development the corresponding E.C. feeding. I would love to hear from others and see what you would do. I grow in soil and use water with an E.C. of 0.0 (not RO or rainwater but a very clean water source!) Thanks in advance! 1 - 1.2 2 - 1.3 3 - 1.3 4 - 1.4 5 - 1.5 6 - 1.5 7 - 1.6 8 - 1.7 9 - 1.8 10 - 1.9 11 - 1.9 12 - 1.9 or flush 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12
  18. Hiya people, ive got some auto flowering green crack and pineapple express growing out door in pots, im about 3.5 weeks in and was wondering what fertilisers i should use. for the rest of vegetative period u was looking at biobizz bio grow (NPK 4,3,6) and for flowering biobizz bio bloom NPK(1,2,2) was wondering if this was a good shout or if anyone had any other recommendations or advice using these products. thanks
  19. Hi all What bloom nutes can I mix with water and leave sitting in a tank ready to be used, without them going off? I am growing in compost in pots, indoors. I want to be able to fill an 80 litre tank with water, with bloom nutes added, and feed it to the plants through drippers over the course of a few weeks, using a timer. I have the watering working, but nutes I have tried so far go quite strange if you mix them with water and leave them standing. I prefer to use tomato fertiliser, which has worked well for me in previous grows, but doesn't seem to like being mixed and stood at all. Thanks for your help
  20. I'm currently looking for the best nutrients to use with auto pots. I generally use plant magic as I like to try and go as organic as possible but upon reading I've heard that using organics in hydro can clog the system. I'm not sure how bad auto pots are for this as it's going to be my first time using them? i have also not used plant magic for around a year now which generally I have been impressed with but am now reading the brand has changed its products a bit and people seem to be stating it's not as good as it once was. so I'm realy looking to grow for quality and taste over yield so wanted to get opinions on what nutes people would suggest with this setup the nutes I'm interested in using at the moment is:- -plant magic -canna/canna bio -growers ark -fox farm -bio bizz My setup will be a 1.2x2.4x2.2 tent with 4 315w cmh and the 8 pot auto pot
  21. Hi its my first time using Dutch Pro Explode, has any one used it on a G13 Haze before. when was the best times to use and how was it for you cheers
  22. Hey, I just came across these organic nutrients from Bio Green. They do seem to have a lot of products and are expensive at £32 for just 1ltr grow. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with them?
  23. Slightly odd request but one I am sure many of us have had to deal with in the past... How do I slow down my vegin plants until my flowering plant finishes. I took four cuts from the plant I am currently flowering, and three have rooted fine and I have started them going again... I have a fairly small veg area but it won't accommodate 6 weeks of growth with three plants, so I need to slow them down without harming them. I've managed to stop plants before, but not deliberately and not without doing them harm . So, rthe question is, can I slow their metabolism rather than stunt their growth? My plan so far... I have had them on 24/7 while rooting, so I plan to drop that back to 18/6 to give them less light. I also plan to drop down from 20 watt to a 15 watt cfl and keep them on a light feed... I thought it might also be a good idea to top them multiple times to keep them down - can I take more height off without damage? Any insights would be very welcome!
  24. Used before but want to know if it’s worth using or not? Do you rate it? What’s better? Reviews?
  25. Really need some advice... Since Friday or Saturday this #1 has been looking very dodgy indeed... The grow is in coco using ionic nutes; the plant is under 150watt HPS and the lights are around 1ft above the canopy. So, everything was going well after this plant recovered from what seemed to be nute burn very early on - details in my diary - I flushed and it picked up well. Then, on Friday, I noticed that new growth was small and tight - new leaves were coming in very small and not growing out to the size of the old leaves. Then the old leaves began to yellow from the bottom of the plant up... Two leaves have also shown some spotting... Maybe paranoia, but I'm seeing multiple deficiencies in this plant and that leads me to think its perhaps an environmental issue... Temps have been reasonable - never falls below 22 lights off (av temp 24 lights off) though it has been getting a bit hot during lights on, though not more than 30c. Feed is 0.8ec... Thoughts: it may be calcium deficient - I'd been messing around uping and downing the ec on pre-made feed for a few days, though I did not add additional calmag. I changed to a better regulated feeding regime, though I cannot get my temps to settle into a more reliable and consistent 26c lights on... Very many thanks for any insights, suggestions (aside from binning it - I'd like to save it if I can)! Cheers!
