  1. Hi all Im on about my 8th grow and have this time, run into significant issues after each repotting: i'm using canna coco professional plus coco with clay pebble. and started from seed in jiffy pellet, moved to 4" pots quite happily, and when i repotted again to 5" pots, it all went wrong. lots of leaf clawing symptoms, and slow, stunted growth. after a few days of struggling, i flushed heavily with 50% nutrients and they bounced back nicely. then came to repot again, this time to final containers, 4 x 30l alien fabric pots and 1 in a 20l plastic pot, the issues recurred, this time, far worse and for longer period of time. I think its also relevant to mention that on the move from 4" to 5" pots, I saturated the medium with nutrient solution to runoff before transplanting, and did the same when i moved to the final pots. after well over a week, they were still struggling and i then flushed all 4 fabric pots with 50% feed before they started to recover. although at this time, i also decided to stop daily feeds as i was getting about 50% runoff, and switched to feeding every 3 days. I should mention that this is my first go at using Grow house powder feeds right from seed to harvest. (My last harvest where i used the last of my old liquid feeds during veg, and switched to green house when flowering and ended up with a bumper 66oz from 4 plants.) I also add the chelated calcium and the base nutrients have the Mg in. one important paragraph in the Green house feeding brochure is not to add Cal-Mag to the nutrient solution as it is not compatible with calcium nitrate. I initially started feeding at 400ppm and PH 6.0 and followed the feeding schedule as the plants grow. tap water is 100ppm average So i'm trying to get my head around why i had such a bad and lengthy recovery period after potting up, one clue may lay in the fact that the plant in the smaller plastic pot recovered first, much earlier than the rest in the large fabric pots. did this one recover more quickly because it flushed the new coco more quickly, or because it drained more quickly each time? does anybody know that Canna buffer the coco with? canna themselves have not answered their emails when i asked, but then i may have been asking the equivalent of asking KFC whats in the secret recipie.. it may be that im experiencing a lockout due to a presence of cal-mag in the coco already. alternately, I may have been simply overwatering, and should of stuck to what has worked before i.e. lightly watering, and gradually building up. Anybody have any insight here? J
  2. Hi all, I'm looking for growers who have experience with using the Cana nutrients range. I'm about to start my first grow and want some advice on when and how to use the following nutrients. (All canna range) A+B Calmag Rhizo Pk 13/14 Additional items Ph pen Ppm meter Ph up + down Slim doing a 4 plant scrog in a 1.5x1.5 tent under 2x 600w digital balasts. I'm growing in coco in fabric pots. Hand watering. I'm potting up as following: jiffy pellets >1litre > 4 litre > 12 litre > 25 litre. Question 1 - which nutrients would you use at which stages of the seeds/plants life. And how much. Just a starting point wouldnt be nice and I can go from there. Question 2 - would you add additional nutes? Question 3 - would you use smaller final pots? Thanks beautiful people.
  3. Hi guys, I'm currently growing under a combination of the Invisible sun LED's and CMH's. I was told by a couple of people to double Calmag (up to 2ml per litre) under LED's, but I think I perhaps over did it as i got black ash on a couple of autos I just ran - appreciate it may be down to something else but that's the only thing i've changed. Any definitive advice to be had on CalMag front under LED's? Thanks in advance
  4. Hi Guys. I usually use Bio-Grow & Bio-Bloom in Canna Terra Pro soil. I use the canna medium because i have tried both canna and biobizz soil and find that the canna is fluffier, i find that after a while the biobizz compresses like mud. Anyway, should i just stick to using bio bizz or is cannas line of soil nutes better? Luke

  6. Top growth is kinda thin and cannoeing don’t know if this is normal for new growth, everything else seems to be healthy. Temps are 27 and humidity 70% under 400 mh
  7. hello guys, this is my first time growing in coco and my first time I have actually needed help with an autoflower! So to start off I been using the following: marshydro ts1000 34" away from the plant. 2 6" clip on fans 2 4" extractors for intake and outtake humidifier and controller set to 45% humidity now lowered it to 40% temp controller and a heater been keeping the temps at 28c but at day 7 when I saw the plants looking like that lowered it to 26c Canna A & B Rhizotonic CalMag Vitalink to start I fed nothing but ph balanced tap water (5.8-6.0) for the first few days of the plants being in the coco. once they both had their first true leaves I gave them a batch of 10ml/gallon rhizotonic ph to 5.9 didnt use the whole lot only fed them 500ml at a time. at day 7 I fed them another 500ml of the rhizotonic mix and then just fed them ph tap water (5.8-6.0) up until day 12 where they started to look like this. I got a little concerned about them as they started to look unhealthy so I whipped up a batch the night before of 2ml calmag, 10ml rhizotonic, 2ml canna a, 2ml canna b ph at 6.1 thinking maybe this might fix it but since then the purple and the yellowing has got worse. I have been feeding once every other day but now I have read from someone else on another forum saying I should be feeding every day? I am just so confused so I found the canna chart and it says to mix 16ml per 7ltrs a and b so should I whip up a batch of 4ml a and b with 6ml rhizotonic? it doesn't feel like I am over-watering I have been making sure the coco has been drying out at least an inch below the coco. The image on the left is the auto gelato and the one on the right is auto blueberry the left pictures do not do the purpling justice but there is a lot of purple on the new growth in the centre of the plant and purple and brown spots all over the yellowing of the leaves and its starting to work its way up the plant. left picture is from day 10 and day 14 right picture plant is showing slight purpling on new growth and same with the yellowing no visible spots yet. the pictures on the right are of day 9 and day 14 also forgot to say the plant on the left is auto gelato and the plant on the right is blueberry auto better images

  11. 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.
  12. Ok guys! This thread is for you out there that have a perticular liking to the cannabis plant photography of it's beauty, morphology and it's trichomes..... So,i suggest that people post nice old pictures of paradise seed strains they personnaly feel really do reflect the specific genetic traits of the strain they where growing at the time, or right now, or in the future. I would like to emphasize that amateur photographers are more than welcome, but for the sake of clarity and accurate analysis of the pic, please take the pictures with a flash just before the light opens, or in the first 2 to 3 minutes after they open, as to get a good overall image of the plant. Those of you that are already accustomed to cannabis photography and it,s tweeks, i have nothing to add. You can also go post your Paradise Seeds picture on our website's photo contest for the chance to win prizes! https://www.paradise-seeds.com/en/media/photocontest.html Now, for this little personnal thread of us Paradise Lovers here, i will personnaly donate gifts and genetics to the most Artistic and professional Quality picture of either a dried flower top (10 inches and up), a live flower top, a whole plant shot or a whole field shot if you guys are so fortunate in this day and âge. Everybody is welcome! Remember this is all in good fun! JF

  14. Howdy peoples, I'm brand new here, and to these operations, so would be grateful for any and all help in solving some questions. I've planted mine in Canna Terra Professional Plus, and just started the feeds with Rhizotonic and Canna Coco A + B. Looking around I see so many different opinions on whether theses are the correct nutes for this medium (though it kinda says so on the bag). Also, is it cool to mix all 3 into the same feed? And how long does a feed mix last? i.e. I mixed 50L in a tub, but only use 10L at a time, is this bad practice, should I just do 10L each time, or will the feed mixture last? Thank you in advance for any help :-)
  15. If, like me, you were given or bought some Canna nutes in the past decade and didn't get around to using them and you are wondering "Can I use old Canna nutes on a grow?" then the answer, in my experience is yes. I had the full range in a box in the loft that I had forgotten about from 10 years ago and only rediscovered when I decided to try a coco grow (I usually tried mudl). So it turns out the A&B were fine, giving me the healthiest looking plants I've ever grown. I am 3 days into flushing and no sign of yellowing yet (and I had to remove a load of leaves because I had way too many). PK14/14 was fine, not sure about ryzatonic or cannazym but I used them a bit during veg anyway. Boost - nah, it turned all gloopy like there was yeast growing in it. I used it once and decided against it. All of them were already unsealed BTW, and were kept in the loft so have gone through a few extremes of temperature. The chemicals must be pretty stable is my conclusion. Of course, I'd recommend you use yours as soon as possible after opening and store them in a cool, dry location however
  16. I’m currently on week 2 of flower with 6 stardawg girls. I’ve been using canna nutrients from the start and have been following the guide Almost exactly, I’m currently feeding at EC 1.7 but I’m reading that this is too high?? They seem to be happy but now I’m worried about bumping the EC up which is what the guide says to do as you get further into flower. Any tips or advise would be much appreciated
  17. Hoping for a little advice or personal opinion if possible as this will be my first grow of any kind. UK Based. Have a bunch of Auto Critical Orange Punch from Grizzly Seed Bank and plan to germinate with a basic paper towel method. Planning to plant in Canna Coco Plus Pro in 11L hydro square fabric bags. Am I safe to immediately start the grow outside as opposed to the plants spending some time initially indoors? On hand I have PH Perfect Tech Micros 1L and Bloom 1L and also CalMag 1L. Opinions on : 1 - when to start feeding nutrients / bloom / calmag and doses? 2 - how often and volume of watering? Having read varied reviews I was planning : Week 1 - watering only Week 2 - 1ml Cal Mag / 1ml Micro / 2ml bloom Week 3 - 5 - 2ml Cal Mag / 2ml Micro / 4ml Bloom Week 6 + - 3ml Cal Mag / 3ml Micro / 6ml Bloom I may have this totally wrong, hence why I am asking for general opinion. Another concern is the expected smell. I may just try 1 initial plant to assess how bad the smell is as I plan to place in the garden in an area that gets the most sun that unfortunately sits between 3 joining gardens. Greatly appreciate advice / opinions. Will take pictures throughout.
  18. Hi everybody, I know this is old question but i want to know if any Boost nutrient really work? I see some posts about this but are 3-4 yrs old so i think maybe someone have updates on Boost nutrient I use Canna A+B Canazym and Rhizotonic at the moment in veg , soon i will flower them so what you guys recomand to use ? I have one bottle of PK 13/14 and i was thinking to buy canna bost aswell ... thank you
  19. ph

    Ok, the new problem... My PH is a bit low for my feed. So that is going to be adjusted. However, for those who asked in a previous thread what the PH and EC were, well I splashed out and bought myself a crissy prezzie of an EC and PH meter, they arrived today. I have tried el-cheap-o route, splashed out on a couple of middle of the range meters that were about the £35 mark each. Normally about £99 the pair, got then on deal via a trader that I have used several times for substantial purchases and got them both for £69.99. So these are not your £20 grow shop cheap as chips, ok for a grow meters. The PH meter was easy to set up, there is an option to set the alternative end standards of 4.0 and 10.0 on the PH scale, I just went with the Neutral PH 7 standard for now. The EC meter was pretty much same sort of deal, I happened to have bought, quite by accident a month or so back, EC28 buffer... Single button push calibration... Couldn't ask for more. OK now, those people asking what my water EC and PH is. This is a current state that IS GOING TO BE CORRECTED. Feed mix... PH 4.3 EC 1.3 Separate Water (for all uses, including adding more water to the pot when dry between feeds) PH 4.8 (Originally I set the PH to 7 for a baseline, was aiming for PH5 when PH was too high) EC 1.0 The water I used to water and other things like spraying was aimed at being PH 5 as I needed to drop the PH of the water in the pot as it was a bit high, the test paper system I used was pretty good guide and PH had risen to above 7. So now I can make the required changes to the current feed mix, readjust the water back to PH of 7.
  20. Hi guys. I have a few photoperiod soil grows under my belt now and have improved every time. Just out of interest and wanting to expand on my knowledge, I have bought some gorilla glue autos. I’m wanting to also try coco now for the first time. Usually I use biobizz and have had good results but I know coco is an inept medium so no microherd (or this is my understanding correct if wrong). So I have ordered canna a+b. Do I need a calmag and if so which one suits the canna. Also any tips for autos/coco would be great.
  21. Hey all, Huge problem, I've not even planted in the soil and my runoff ppm (should I be measuring runoff anyway?) is ridiculous... about 2400ppm. The PH is also around 7. I've used a mix of bioterra plus soil, biobizz light mix, perlite, an innoculant, kelp meal, EWC and a half to quarter dose of the following: maxicrop seaweed extract, GH nectar (humic acid) and literally one or two drops of bio silicon. None of the things I've added should cause the kind of readings I'm seeing surely? I know the bioterra soil is pretty heavy to begin with but it's probably less than half bioterra. The meters I'm using are pancellent... easily found online. They seem to be accurate on my tap water so I can only assume they're accurate on the runoff. So anyone have any ideas what I've done? Alternatively, I have a little cabinet of materials which I can use to completely restart the soil: EWC Bioterra plus Biobizz lightmix Kelpmeal Rootgrow innoculant Perlite Guano I've got a pretty extensive compost brewing kit so I'm intending on only using the biocanna line lightly. Any thoughts or tips would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Hey 420, I’m wondering what medium to use. It says on the auto pot website to use a 50/50 mix of coco or soil with perlite or clay pebbles. I’m wondering should I mix canna professional plus with clay pebbles or buy/use the gold label 70/30 mix. it would be easier for me to just use the 70/30 but wanted to see what you guys would suggest... does anyboday have experience with either of these mediums in auto pots? Thanks
  23. I have been growing with ionic for years and can achieve some nice quality but just not the best yields. I am growing in a 1.2 x 1.2 tent and everything is for personal use so I'm aiming more for quality but the maximum yield I have achieved has been about 15oz dried. I have read a lot about growers aiming for 1g/watt and am pretty sure I will never get there with ionic. I have grown in soil, coco and recently switched to the autopots all using ionic and I'm thinking it's time for a change. I have done a lot of reading and think I'll go with canna, Dutch pro or growers ark, for base nutes at least. Does anyone have experience using these preferably with the autopots? Also is there one additive/supplement that you wouldn't go without? As I said I'm looking for quality over quantity but the best of both worlds would be nice haha. Cheers
  24. Welcome to my humble offering for the Sweet Seeds 2017 Diary Competition. Firstly, many thanks to Sweet Seeds for the free seeds, quite some deal - I send you no money and you send me three packs of seeds - I feel like I have already won before I started ! Here is a quick run down on the plan : Germinate the seeds in a 40x40x160 tent with a 125w Blue CFL using the good old fashioned standard - Wet tissue paper laced with 2ml per litre of Rhiztonic. Pop them into some Root Riot cubes and allow them to rise and root up. Once rooted their first pot will be a 0.7l square filled with Clover soil. Once they outgrow the small tent I shall transplant them into their final pots, 11 litre square's, once again using Clover soil but also with some additional organic bat guano - 1 litre mixed in with 80 litres of soil. Once in their final pots they will complete the journey in the big tent - 70x170x180 with 2 air cooled hoods holding 600w bulbs. I am using dimmable ballasts so can range from 400-1000w each if needed. Blue MH bulbs will go in to begin with then when flowering I can switch to the Red bulbs. Feeding will be kept simple, Rhizotonic all the way through until a few weeks before the end, Canna Start possibly whilst starting to veg out, Biobizz Fishmix once in full veg and in final pots, and finally Biozbizz Grow & Biobizz Bloom as appropriate. I live in a hard water area so doubt I will suffer from cal mag issues, but just in case, I do have a fresh bottle of Canna Trace Mix, so if there appears to be any kind of deficiency showing I will give them a few doses of this. Seed selection was difficult. Ideally I need a warehouse to fulfill my dreams, with a tent of every breed possible, but I had to settle on three. It was tough ! Jack47 (fast version) - I always kept looking this one up but its one of the more expensive ones - And I'm a tight arse Sweet Cheese (fast version) - I have done Sweet Cheese Auto a few times and even got a few hundred of my own seeds crossed with a SuperSkunk Auto male. My current favourite flavour. Sweet Skunk (fast version) - I couldn't resist, I am hoping to find a really deep skunky pheno, fingers crossed ! I will take clones, I would like to have a few mother plants. There are plans for a shed, in March I hope, if this happens then there will be a midnight move down to the end of the garden into a grow area twice the size of the tent. We will see ! They say a picture paints a thousand words. I agree. With this in mind I shall be setting up my DSLR camera on a little tripod with a timer so I can create a time lapse video to share with you all. I did a first attempt a while back which was pretty cool, I shall add it below. The plant in the video is now 82 days old and close to cropping, a Killer Kush Auto Last night I put all seeds into their tissue paper and covered them with a plant pot, it was nice and warm in the small tent with the 125w cfl powered up. Most of the seeds have cracked open and are showing their tap root, here a few pictures to get this diary started. Jack47 after 24h with a heavy watering of 2ml/litre Rhizotonic Sweet Cheese Sweet Skunk All seeds were put in to Root Riots And then heavily watered with the 2ml/litre Rhizotonic and put under the plastic hood of a propagator Happy smokes everyone !
