Hey My plan was to use PM supreme with OT grow and bloom ( along with granuels and maybe fishmix) but now Im unsure if my water supply is appropriate. From an online search my local water supply comes from the welsh mountains, says it is soft with a ph 7.64, and has a conductivity 128.00 2500us/cm (have a list of metals and other stuff thats in the water if that helps Im a bit out of my depth with this stuff) I read OT is suited to hard water, will this be problems ? Should I be using a better or more suitable organic feed that you guys can recommend? Thanks again your help is appreciated
My second grow in my new space hasn't gone too well so far and really want to bring them back to health before 12/12. I cooked the roots early on with underfloor heating issues. I have now isolated the room but I think this may've prevented nute uptake, I got yellowing so thought they MUST be hungry so fed 2ml of Oldtimer Grow and burnt them. Lost a few lower fan leaves. I'm in Plagron Batmix so thought they should have had plenty of food for vegging without me having to add any so I was very cagey about feeding. I didn't riddle the Batmix (didn't have time and to riddle a bag of this stuff and break down all the lumps, twigs and timber would take an hour or 2 I reckon with my little sieve!) but can't imagine this is the problem and I did try and break it up by hand and with a trowel. I potted up a few days ago to 3.5lt using Batmix and PM Granules (is it wise to mix nute brand's 'ecosystems'?). They were topped at the same time. Because I have dropped to one light I now have 9 girls-3 Cream Caramel and 6 Psychosister. They are all smelling good but a little pale. Next I realised I have very soft water compared to where I grew before so on the last watering I just added 0.5ml/lt PM+ Magne-Cal. -My temps range with a thermometer in the shade at root level is 22°C-28.5°C. -Lights on 20/4. -Airflow is 200mm out the window with a reducer to a 250mm outlet and 150mm in from the room running off an SMS Hybrid. Both with oversized carbon filters. -I have them sat on a 100mm sheet of Celotex too for good measure. -Also have an oscillating fan and 2 clip-ons churning the air in the tent. -Bulb is about 2 feet/40cm away but I should measure it to be sure. A couple of pics that hopefully show what I mean... Cream Caramel The Final 9 Do I wait and see if the pot up helps them recover or am I missing something obvious? Heeyeelp!! in my best Penelope Pitstop voice.
