  1. Hi,If anyone With experience could give me some advise id be very grateful.Ive got 4 girls on the grow which are 7 weeks from seed which ive just switched into flower now.I potted them from seed straight into canna terra pro and plants developed well with no problems apart from a little bit of nitrogen toxicity which my plants grew out of.Im on week 7 and have not added any any extra nutrients of any kind. Ive literally just watered at a ph of 6.3, using real lemon juice to lower ph from my tap water.I live in a soft water area in uk so water is decent and i let chlorine evaporate for 24hr before watering.anyway, i’ll get to the point.....I want to stay organic so decided to buy these products to add to my plants but not sure on dosages etc.Guanokalong bat guano NPK 1.10.1ecothrive charge NPK 3.2.3Bone meal NPK 3.9.0 / calciumEpsom saltsWorm castingsGuanokalong palm tree ashes NPK 0.3.14Would this be too hot as a tea or could i bubble some in tea and top dress the rest to be watered in ?im using the kingbo 2000W led light ans have heard that led’s such the calmag out of your plants. Im also noticing purple veins travelling through the plant too so not sure what to do as i dont want to use chemicals like calmag.my growing conditions are good.Room temperature day time is approx 22•cRH / 55%....night time temp 18•c RH / 60 - 65 %but ive bought a dehumidifier to control it better.If anyone could help me id be very appreciative and can also add pictures but because of the led purples lighting its hard to see properly.Any feedback would be much appreciated, thanks
  2. Does anyone here use Nitrozyme and liquid Oxygen and if so, does it make much difference to plant growth in Veg and Flower? I grow in an RDWC 4 tote undercurrent system and generally only use, grow + flower a&b and a bit of pk boost in flower.
  3. Had an amazing grow back in 2018 and used a lot of BioBizz products. Now due to not being able to go out, I have to change location to where I won't be questioned. Reducing the size of my grow as well.. I have a good amount left of Bio Grow and Fish Mix with a drop left of Top Max. I know I'll be buying more, but I am hoping to get away with the remainder of the first two. Still good I hope?? Thanks in advance! Bern
  4. Hello, it’s been a while since I’ve grown. Previously I had success with a coco run to waste system system using canna nutes according to their schedule. i want to start a little 1.2 x 1.2 tent with 4 pots ( im thinking 18l) but I’m not up to speed on which soils and nutes to use. Looking at some of the hydro shops they sell several additives and nutrients for their soils with a feeding schedule that looks like they feed with every water. Although reading this site there seems to be people using a soil with just one food and that’s it. Here are my questions:- 1. Which soil is good? 2. Do I need a full nutrient schedule as per canna brand grow guides 3. Should I be feeding on every water 4. is a case of just water every few days? thanks
  5. Hi so I am starting a new grow as I have been given an alien auto feeder that was not used for cannabis previously! It has a 225ltr reserve tank. Does anyone else use this system and do you have Any advice for balancing nutrients and pH in such a large tank. Going from 4 plants to 30 is a big step up
  6. Hello people,This is my first post btw so it might be a mess lol.I have grown outdoors in the UK three times but I still feel like a complete newbee to it all, I do a lot of research online but I thought it might be a better idea to post into a community and share some ideas.I'm having serious trouble coming up with a feeding schedule for my outdoor grow. I am starting in May because my climate is shit. I'm going to explain my situation and what I think would be a good feed for my babies and I guarantee you will all laugh at the sight of it.I have bought Bio Bizz all mix to pot up in. I am going to mix with 30% of the top soil from my outdoor grow spot. The Semi-Automatic feminized seeds (guerilla gold X Freezeland) are going to be germinated straight into 1gallon fabric pots (debating whether to use jiffy pellets first). Once they are vegging I am going to use 3ml of bio bizz root juice for one week https://www.biobizz.com/producto/rootjuice/ I am also enhancing the taste of my crop using GuanoKalong Extract Taste Improver. 10 ml to the litre all the way through the grow cycle. When the fertilizer from the bio biz all mix substrate runs out I will use Royal queen seeds' easy boost organic dry fertilizer pellets. they are supposed to last for the whole growth cycle. the dry pellets combined with Plant magic plus evolution spray is what I am going to use for veg Once we are almost in June I want my plants outside in the ground. I have dug 3 foot wide holes about 2 and a half foot deep. I then gathered all the top soil from the surrounding areas and filled the hole with it. I did this because the soil I dug was very orange and apparently that means there's too much clay.When I transplant into the holes I am going to use Great White Michorizae paste to make the roots flourish. As the dry fertilizer pellets last for the whole growth cycle I wasn't going to use any bloom fertilizer. I Was just going to use Rock Resinator as an additive a week into the flowering stage and hope for the best.If any of you have grown outdoors in the UK you will know from experience at how small and airy some of the buds you come out with are. I thought the rock resinator could substitute for that.I really am unsure about this whole thing as I am still a newbie and would be really grateful for any changes/suggestions All the best,F.100
  7. Good Evening people, I'm looking for some advisories. My girls are currently enjoying day 45 in veg and I'm looking to transition into flower in the next few days. It's my first grow with an auto-pot system, with a 100l res (purely for convenience of not watering everyday) On the first day that I change the light cycle to flower, do I empty the res the same day and change nutrients from grow to bloom. or do i wait to change the res until the first few pistols arrive? Any feedback is appreciated. Stay safe GS
  8. I have an acquaintance who has been growing cannabis in tandem with myself for many years, out of the blue he has started to use different nutrients, I would appreciate any advice for and against on the following, for the late flowering stage : Westland Superphosphate Fertiliser Fruit and Vegetable Ripener, 1.5 kg Fertiliser NPK: 0.0 - 17.0 -5.0 and whisper it quietly Miracle grow (I hear gnashing of teeth and foaming at the mouth of such heresey) Miracle grow superphosphate fruit and vegetable ripener. We are all aware that the flowering cannabis plant requires lots of phosphate and my acquaintance assures me that he has had no less yield by using these much cheaper ingredients. Your thoughts and wisdom would be greatly appreciated I am, as ever your faithful servant Thomaz Dequincey
  9. Hello there, For the first time Im growing in coco soil, and Im using canna range. Now I am gonna be soon in week three of 12/12 period and I want to find out from experienced canna users how are they using it. What I gathered from schedule and my own experience with NFT, that I need to use all their products once a week and then just top it up everyday with PHed water and AB as its the base nutrient solution. Can someone give me any tips how are you using Canna coco range, maybe im doing something totally wrong? And Im also using canna boost from day one of 12/12, increasing it until I will reach max usage in about week 4 of 12/12 according to their Medium feed shchedule, and using it only once a week as everything else in their range. Tips are very appreciated.

  11. Hello everyone, Have been absent for a long time but after my first (semi-failed) grow i have started my fourth grow a few months ago. First time using feminized seeds (BF liberty haze, glookies and pineapple chunk) instead of autos and finally growing in a proper tent instead of a stealth pc build. I am using soil (Biobizz light mix), first time properly using nutrients and i am currently on week 8 of the veg period. I have used Biobizz root juice, bio grow, alg-a-mic and molasses until this point in time. I was planning to use Biobizz Top Max and Bio Bloom. After speaking with a few growers and doing some research online i was told to use Advanced nutrients Bud Candy as well with the two previously mentioned nutes. I also have AN Big Bud (wanted to try it in my next grow). Lastly i was gifted a bottle of Atami bloombastic which is apparently very strong. My question is the following: Can i use this two different brands together? For example can I use BB bloom and top max in conjunction with AN Bud candy? Also can i fit Atami Bloombastic in there? (It is stated in the box that it should only be used during week 4-6 (8 week period)) Thank you in advance!
  12. Hello fellow growers!` So i have a very frustrating problem and not sure how to fix it. So awhile back i had a cal mag def, so added cal mag to an ec of 0.4 as required, this worked sort of, as the plant has gotten older and bigger (still in veg) i gave more nutes as expected, she gets 10ml A and 10ML B of canna, 2.5ml of silicone, 10ml of rhizo, 4ml cal mag. This is good, but i kept noticing a nitrogen toxicity with this mix, then i noticed the NPK of the cal mag was 2-0-0 which is nitrogen, so i backed off the cal mag and gave it 2ml of cal mag, this helped with the nitrogen toxicity but now have a cal def! So stuck in a catch 22 here... temps are 29 with lights on, 25 lights off, i heard the higher temps cause her to drink more and use more nitrogen, could this be the issue? Thanks.
  13. Im having some problems and im not too sure whats going on, first time grower, taken extra care with the nutrients. I use coco A & B , rhizotonic. I had my mix at 6ml a and 6ml b per 5 litres of water, Ph'd to 6.2 but i noticed these spots on my plants, so i thought it was a cal mag defiency, as my tap water has an EC of 0.0! So i added the recommened dose of 1ml per litre of cal mag vitalink to get the cal mag up a bit. Also added an extra 1m a and b to a fresh mix of nutes as the new growth was very light green. And a day after i fed the plant this new mix, the new growth got much greener but now im seeing some of the leaves curling under and looking glossy? Using coco coir, 40% perlite and rest coco coir for good drainage. Its also just had its first transplant to a bigger pot. Any help would be greatly appreciated! For some reason i cant add photos... shows in the edit box but doenst post.

  17. 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!
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.

  23. 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
  24. 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?
  25. 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.
