  1. Firstly i will admit that i still have my growing L plates on as i am still a novice in the game, however once i start looking into things and taking an interest i tend to become a nerd and spend to much time researching. Granted i am trying to run before i can walk, but the subject interests me and id like to possibly test it out at some point in the future. I have been seeing a few growers running extremely High EC levels recently ( any where from 5-8EC ). To some one like me who constantly sees "less is more" and people hitting nice results from 1-1.2 EC this seems beyond ridiculous, however the results and the science speak for themselves and i can't argue with them. Some of the growers using these levels are doing so under LEDs and talk about the plants transpiration being dramatically affected by the switch to LED to the point where plants require twice the E.C level just from being used on LED alone. Apparently LEDs cause the plants to transpire less than half that of tradition CMH/HID in which case twice the nutrient EC level was needed to give the plants the correct amount of nutrition in a smaller volume of water. Another thing to note is that the strain also plays a factor in weather or not plant can take any given EC solution as it was said some plants could take 8EC upwards, where as other would not react kindly to anything over 1.6 This all massively interest me as its out of the "norm" for your average grower and is something that seems to be getting very good results interns of quality and yield. very curious to know what @GSZZ @tokenroll@Owderb@badbillybob think, sorry to tag you guys. In my short time on here you guys have been the main members to stick out and be very knowledgable so curious to know what your options are!

  5. Hello there Looking for some advice please. I am about to start my third hydro grow in a Wilma 8 pot system bought in 2011. Previously and pretty successfully I had followed a feed chart in the Growell catalogue. This time round and following reading a couple of articles on importance of staying on top of EC I have made a rather impulsive purchase of a Bluelab Truncheon, however back home and ‘out of the box’, I have a couple of questions… Firstly, the Wilma involves completely weekly reservoir change. Following a daily EC reading is it basically a case of adjusting basic nutrients (Samurai G&B in this case) or water in the reservoir as necessary, or would other aspects of the feed regime need adjusting maybe daily? Secondly, particularly into flowering, moving plants off the top of the reservoir for water/ nutes etc is highly disruptive once a week let alone throughout the week, assuming a daily EC check and necessary adjustments of water and nutes, is it usually possible to manage all this through the small(ish) hole where the dripper pipe feeds into the reservoir or will plants need to be moved around more than usual within the usual weekly res change? Basically, how do you guys using a Wilma get on with using EC wands like Bluelab and managing nutrients thereafter? Obviously, I want the best for the plants and would like to understand this technology but is it practical for use with my old Wilma or should I just stick with the feed chart? Any thoughts much appreciated! YP

  9. Hi, I grown this plant (gods gift) in soil partly outside then brought it in to veg a bit, now its three weeks into flowering and it's starting to get yellowing of the leaves. I have been only feeding a tiny amount of nutes as I overfed the last plant and got nute lockout. From googling it looks like a potassium deficiency. My tap water is soft and around 6-7ph. I have started feeding now with a veg stage feed.
  10. Hi guys, First time grower and first time user on the site. I have aquired an Aquarfm which i intend to use to grow 2 plants in a 1 metre tent. I put my seeds into rootriots 3 days ago and they have all popped and are about 1 inch tall. My question is this... when do i start using Grow nutrients and what EC level should they be at? Also, when should i start adding CalMag and PK boost? Any advice extremely welcomed. Cheers, B
  11. Hello all hope everyone’s doing well! has anyone had any experience with Plagron nutes? Especially green sensation? I tried mills nutes but there was too many, then now I’ve got bits of everything and I’d rather just a few bottles of the same to be honest and Plagron is ticking the boxes. Just what to know if anyone’s had good or bad experiences with it at all
  12. Hi all. I'm just about to go into WK 5 of flower and the past couple feeds I've been giving Buddhas Tree PK at 0.3ML/L as well as Samurai Terra Bloom at 4ML/L. This has resulted in some very slight nute burn on the leave tips. I was hoping the PK would beef up the buds as much as possible. Should I carry on with the PK or leave off for a little bit? Is the PK worth it, does anyone know? DPG
  13. Greetings all, So my grow-room re-build is almost complete...on to the next stage. I'm trying out an Intellidoser by Autogrow and will be using the Flora Gro trio by General Hydroponics. Has anyone here done this? I'm struggling with the "sequential dosiing instructions", and that's even before I have to tackle the proportions.... Hoping someone will see this :-)
  14. Hi, Can someone provide some advice for the plant in the photo please, seems to have started in the last 24 hours. Tent - 26-30c 50-60% Rh Nutrients - GHE Grow/Bloom/Micro Thanks
  15. Hi all, Not long until I start my first grow but i just need your help with the feeding side of things. I'm growing bruce banner seeds (scrog) in an indoor tent in 12 litre pots. In Coco coir. Time is no issue. This is where you come in. I need to know how much to feed and what to feed. All I have so far is..... 5x 1 litre pots 5x 3 litre pots 5x 12 litre pots Coco coir (80%) Perlite (20%) Ph up/down Ph meter Ec meter My plan is the germinate using the paper towel method and up pot throughout the veg stage. Hiw big would you let the plant grow before transferring to bigger pot. I'm going 1 litre, 3 litre, 12 litre. Is 3 litre to 12 litre pot a bit too big of a jump? Would you use more I between. How much and what nutriants would you give them and also how much at each stage. I want to keep it as simple as possible really but I am keen to get my hands dirty. Thanks In advance.
  16. Hi guys hope this post is acceptable. I’m onto my 2nd grow which has just started And it’s one week into 18/6. previous grow was in a garage. as a novice I was receiving advice from a friend who has experience in running these things. I had 24 little fellas with 12 lights. yield was very very good. Food was great white, superthrive, canna a&b, 2 bloom, explode, Rox, didn’t bother testing the ph ever, I just done the Ec, room had air con and humidifier so temp etc was perfect all way through. onto my 2nd attempt taking advice from a different friend this time, who again has done these on and off for years. I’m running in an attic with 12 little fellas 4 lights. food I have been advised to get (which I think is over kill) hence the reason for the post. been told to ph the water and only feed 300ml every other day using only plant start for one week full list of food for duration of grow is canna a&b canna boost cannazym rhizotonic Canna mono nitrogen Vita link plant start bud link Vita link chill Monster bloom bud blood solar green Rox growing both times with clay pebbles and coco professional soil, feeding on first time was by hand top fed then in trays with floats. Current one is by hand all way through do you think the first feeding list was adequate / inadequate and is the 2nd too much , would you lose anything from 2nd lot or add anything / something else in place of another product attic doesn’t have ac - temps have been 30/32 the last few days and lights are only on 250w at the moment
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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.
