  1. Alright 420! sifting through the minefield of decent PH and TDS pens does anyone recommend one that’s reliable? Around £40 mark ideally - don’t want to get a cheap one of Amazon as you get what you pay for right?! Any help would be magic. Cheers
  2. Can anyone tell me what to look out for when Auto's need feeding when growing outdoors in pots. I know when to water, if the pots feel light when lifting, but when should you feed them. I read that if you use good soil, they shouldn't need feeding. But some of my larger fan leaves are turning yellow, and when i posted some pictures, on here to ask why, someone said they are hungry and need feeding. But surely when the when fan leaves are going yellow, it might be a little to late. I know there are many reasons why leaves go yellow, but going by my knowledge, it isn't due to over watering, as usually you would see leaf droop, due to leaves holding excess water. It isn't due to PH levels as this mainly affects Hydroponically grown, I am growing in soil, which should balance out the PH levels. My auto's are just coming into flower, about 2.5 weeks. is it a natural cycle for auto's for fan leaves to die off to put energy into buds.
  3. Hi all, I hope all your grows are doing well. I have a question regarding feeding Auto plants. Taking into consideration that Autos don't get anywhere as big as normal plants How much and how often are you supposed to feed them. I have my 5 plants in 11l Pots in plant magic soil. They have started to flower, so I am feeding them plant magic bloom. The bottle says 3-5ml per litre but I have only fed them 1-1.5ml per litre once per week. They have only had 1 feed so far of Plant magic bloom, as I don't want to get nute burn, and I am guessing those recommendations on the bottle are for normal plants not auto's. can someone please enlighten as to how much and how often Auto's should be fed, and when to start using Plant magic Bloom Boost. I did also use Plant Magic Grow in veg stage, once again, less than the bottle recommends. Thanks G
  4. Just a quick bit of advice please all. I've got my 2 emergency outdoor autos and they're looking ok so far and about 4 weeks or so into flower. The problem is I only left them is smaller spots smaller pots for stealth but then larger one is needing feeding every day. Is it too late to transplant and if not how to best minimise shock
  5. Hi guys , a new comer here , been reading quite a few bits on here so decided to sign up and get involved myself. i have a few questions regarding watering/nutrient feeding cycle ? my grow space is 1m x 1m x 2m Lighting : Spider farmer sf1000 tempature is : 25 degrees humidity is : 60% ph level : 6.2 soil : Gold Label Special Mix Soil instead of germinating my seeds i put them straight into the soil in 10L pots to try and minimize anything going wrong theyve just sprouted and ive been giving the soil just enough water so i dont drown them . But my main questions are , im using advanced nutrients 3 part micro , bloom , grow so at what week should i start adding nutes ? How much ML per litre should i mix ? Do i feed the plant nutes everytime i water or do i feed with nutes 1 day and then just PH water the next ? And while the plant is still small do i still water enough so i get run off or will i drown them ? Any advice will be great like i said im new to all of this and just looking for some guidance
  6. Howdy folks. Just looking for some advice on feeding for my 3 autos. They are from Paradise Seeds, Strains are: Wappa, Whiteberry and Vertigo. Have them each in 11 litre pots in soil (had John Innes in it). They have reached the 3 week mark now and I have some Terra Flores I'd like feed them with. First time growing autos, but I am growing them in a kind of sun room/conservatory. But I put them outside when the sun is out (they've really thrived with the great weather here in Ireland the last week). Would anyone know roughly, how much Terras Flores to use with how much water? Complete noob here and worried about damaging them. From what I have read, less is more. Start ut with very little and see how they react and then up the feed from that point on. Have a rough estimate to start out on 1ml Terras Flores with 2litres of water for the first week of feed, about twice a week. Then up it by 0.5ml next week. Does this make sense or m I talking out my ass? Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated
  7. I have biobizz nutes/soil going with rainwater, any idea if my pH should be good? I've thought of adding about 15% of my hard alkaline tap water to the solution to bring it up slightly to 6.5. From what I can tell rainwater is 5.5ish but Is brought up by the co2 in the air as it falls, I guess I'm gonna need a pH test really. I thought rain water with biobizz nutes and compost would be golden and my pH woes would be over..... but my plants say otherwise (they aren't too bad but need tweaking). Any rainwater users in soil out there got a two pennies worth would be mucho appreciato
  8. Hello all. Just starting my first run with and indoor setup. Ive got a 250 actual watt LED In coco coir Im wondering how much to feed the plants considering there autoflowers?

  10. Anyone know why there is no heaven used with the white auto schedule found in google? Am imaging weed won't be that great without heaven, anyone know how much to use?
  11. Anyone understand if there is any bioheaven added to the auto feeding schedule seen on google. I'll try and post it ( doesn't seem possible tho, help with that too ?) If so, how much? I can't image having much success if there's no heaven.
  12. i am a newbie and using biobizz fish-mix but was also told by a friend to put chicken pellets down as well as this will help but someone else has told me not to use them as it can make the taste and smell disgusting now in two minds what is best any advice would be very helpful
  13. Hi folks, this is prob a stupid question, but, i've been reading posts and topics and the terms watering and feeding come up, i understand the first 2 weeks the seedlings dont need food as the soil has food in it, so i take it i use clean ph'd water(mines is ph8, is that ok?), then from 3rd week on i mix the nutrients (bio bizz line) with the water and use that. or do you have norm water and another with nutrients, please forgive my dimness
  14. Hi everyone, basically my 5 plants (critical) just entered week 3 of veg, I was planning on vegging for 4 weeks and then transplant into flower. Im growing in COCO, Ive been feeding them every other day but by the time is time to feed, they are droopy. There is a lot of difference compared to how they will look later on today after I fed them this morning. Just wondering do you think I should feed everyday? There doesnt look like there is any deficiency in the leaves, they all look a good colour with thick nodes. Any advice welcome, thanks
  15. Hello everyone have a question to ask, would like to give a shout to @@SkyRider for helping me so far ect.. I first thought i was planting autoflowers, somehow i managed to germinate and not realize for a few days that they were just fast version seeds (Sweet seeds cream caramel F1 to be exact) yeah i know right real stupid.. The most stupid thing was i was following this guide which i was telt on here wasn't that useful. To cut it short i germinated 4 photo seeds straight into 11 litre pots of coco and perlite 70:30, they are sprouted fine just now there light pale green, there not dead as i say @@SkyRider has done alot to help me so big ups to him, but hes a soil guy! Hes helping me to the best but theres gotta be someone whos done or know someone whos done this before? Anyway there on day 8/9, three of them are fine as i say abit light but number 4 is still lacking on producing any new leaves. (BY THE WAY ITS MY FIRST EVERY GROW, JS;)) I started them on a ph of 6.5 thinking they were autos i give the pots an initial soaking of that before germinating anyway i started dropping it now ive been told and read that i should be giving in the region of 5.8-6.0 ph, is this correct i have done this for the last two days just with misting the top soil so hopefully that sorts them... But since ive put them in big pots i dont know the best way about watering ive read so many claims let it dry out, flush till run off, ect i havent watered or fed till any run off so far ive just kept misting the top soil there are still abit heavy/damp so still have water in them but should i flush till run off to see if thats the problem? thats what i dont know since there only babys and they obviously wont have much roots yet? Anyway that probably sounded confusing as fuck i hate typing so bad!, im a bit stoned but everyone on here is full of helpful advice i was wondering if anyone could sort off lay something out there!! Thanks james, happy smoking

  17. Hello homegrowers Had a question about feeding coco in 1.8l pots. I am testing 25 cuts in flower, each in 1.8l pots under a 600w light. I am drip feeding each pot 0.5l feed every day. Of the 12.5l feed in, I get about 10l runoff. Im wondering if I can get away with feeding less, say 400ml, even 300? Do any others flower in 1.8l of coco? What would you recommend?
  18. I have some Whiteberry plants, just gone into 12/12. I am using biobizz nutes in All Mix with OT's feeding schedule, just planning on using the grow and bloom during the 12/12 cycle. The advice about Epsom Salts on the OT Schedule is to give the plants one heaped tablespoon per 10 litres at day 21 of bloom. The alternative advice in the sticky is to give one dose of Epsom Salts during veg and twice during bloom, on bloom days of 10 and 35. The amount is given as between one level desertspoon and one heaped tablespoon per 5 litres. This is up to double the amount suggested in the OT schedule. I have not used Epsom Salts before so I am a bit cautious about using too much. About 6 weeks into the 8 week veg I did give the plants a litre each of water with Epsom Salts at a concerntration of half a level desertspoon per 5 litres. They seemed to grow a bit faster and became a healthier looking shade of green. I feel that they could have taken a bit more though. What are people doing with Epsom Salts? The water here is alkali and hard, if that makes a difference. How big is the window between not enough Epsom Salts and too much? How do you know when they could take some more and when you have given them too much? What I could do is label up the 4 plants into group A and group B and then find out which Epsom Salts method works better on these particular plants. Before I do this though I would like to know how others have got on with Epsom Salts in the past and how to avoid any disasters. Thanks.
