  1. hey peeps we would like to discuss your preferred nutrients and additives please include reasons why you like them and how they made a difference for you
  2. Hey all, I'm switching over to coco for this next grow and looking for advice on nutrients. Has anyone had any experience with Advanced Nutrients? Is there claim to be PH perfect a real thing? Or is CANNA just as good for half the price? Any other suggestions, feel free to let me know
  3. Thanks in advance for all help! I’ve got two auto flowers growing - the one on the left is 1 week older than the one on the right (left plant is about 5 weeks old, right plant is about 4 weeks) - Both potted with canna professional soil. I’ve watered with pure water until the last 5-7 days at which point the oldest plant (on the left) was given a 1ml per 2litres water dose of biobizz grow. The plant I gave a small amount of nutrients to has changed colour considerably in the last 2-3 days - before that the growth was very rapid, going from a small seedling to what it is now, but the change in colour to light green is concerning me. Has it reacted badly to the nutes or is it begging for more? Previous grows I’ve used bigger pots than I’m currently using and typically went full autoflower grows without any nutes at all so I’m very inexperienced with feeding. Hope some can give advice or opinions, many thanks!
  4. Hi guys I’m just starting using a Airoponic propagator any suggestions nutrients or no nutrients I’m using Canna at the moment sorry in advance if it’s already come up before and thanks for the help
  5. What are your thoughts on optimising your environment and nutrition? When transitioning from HID to LED lighting, it is important to adjust the environmental parameters in your growing area to ensure peak plant performance. The Dio-Tech emits less heat energy than HID, this should be compensated by either, adding heat to the room, reducing the speed of the extraction fan using a fan speed controller or both. This is important to achieve the correct leaf surface temperature. If the leaf temperature falls below its ideal range and gets to cool it will affect the plants Phyto morphology and growth rate as it reduces nutrient uptake and its ability to absorb Co2 due to its inability to transpire. The ambient air temperature of each grow room will differ slightly but as a rule there is around a 4°C differential between a grow room, running with HPS (high pressure sodium) vs LED’S. As a rule, a room running with HPS aims to have an ambient air temperature of between 24-26°C this puts the leaf temperature between 29-31°C. When transitioning to LED’S, the ideal ‘lights on’ ambient air temperature needs to increase to between 28-30°C (or 30-32°C, if supplementing the area with CO2). These increases in ambient air temperature will in turn keep the leaf surface within the correct temperature range. Humidity can increase if the grower reduces the fan speed on their extraction unit to elevate their ambient temperature. To combat this the grower may need to install both de-humidifier and a humidifier with controllers to work in unison to maintain the ideal grow room humidity. The ideal humidity (RH) is 60-75% for vegetative growth and 50-60% for flowering. If temperatures are too cool, growth will be inhibited, and nutritional issues can occur. If humidity is too high the risk of fungal pathogen infection increases. High humidity and lower leaf temperatures reduce the rate of evapotranspiration (the flow of water from the roots, through the plant and out of the leaves) this also reduces the amount of nutrition entering the plant and negatively affects the mobility of calcium and magnesium, which will lead to deficiencies. If temperature and humidity are not optimal, adding Cal-Mag at a higher concentration to your usual growth schedule will help compensate for this. Vapor Pressure Deficit (VPD) is a measurement used to define how the temperature and relative humidity of a growing area effects the evapotranspiration rate of the plant. Using a VPD chart to set temperature and humidity parameters will significantly increase growth rates and yield. Digital Thermometer/Hygrometers are an essential piece of equipment for every grow room. A data-logging unit such as the Air Comfort will enable the grower to track environmental changes more accurately.
  6. First time growing autoflower. I’m in UK. best nutrients and any pics if possible ? anyone got any pics of results on autos UK? Many thanks guys
  7. Not a hydro question, all mediums. Does anyone here stagger feeding phosphorus (p) and potassium (k) during the flowering stage, or is using a combined PK booster the general consensus? Not tried myself yet, but read cannabis plants prefer increased phosphorus in the early stage of flower, and then more potassium towards the end. I'm going to try it and see if it makes any difference with my current run, but wanted to hear from anyone who has hands on experience. My plan is to use an even NPK base line feed throughout, and peak the 3 at different stages. (veg, early flower, mid flower)
  8. Hey all, I got a Dutch Pro nutrient starter kit with came with a feeding chart, although my question is regarding the time scales. I'm not sure if im allowed to upload the actual chart here but it says: Vegetative growth seedlings and cuttings week 1 and week 2, then goes straight to Bloom period and has weeks 1-9. I am or at least was in the thinking of for the first 1 to 2 weeks after germination was just plain water then the nutrients after that. So if I am right in saying that (which I am very aware I may not be) then does that mean that their "veg week 1 and 2" would be closer to week 3 and 4 counting from day of germination, and then flip in week 5 totalling 13 weeks-ish from germination to harvest?
  9. So just going to start a first grow and I've got all the goodies bar the seed (autoflower Fat Banana) for now and I'm a tad confused about nutrients ml/l measurements and just want to be safe with the gal. Now my understanding is that for example 4ml per liter (definitely not using the manufactures guide for measurements!) and I have a 9l fabric pot for her so if I'm correct I'd need to add 36ml for the plant if it's going off of 4ml per litre or am I just overthinking it? I know you're supposed to start off around 1/4 or 1/3 of the recommended as most growers seem to say. And another cheeky question is, if 36ml is the max (per 4ml//liter of pot size) would splitting it between bloom/grow 18ml per bottle or something to that affect be safer so it's not nuking the roots / plant. Using Adv Nutrients Bloom/Grow if you're wondering but suggestions are welcome! Appreciate it

  15. Hi everyone. I am a new grower and i would like to ask you. What would you recommend soil or coco and what nutrients should i use and when?
  16. Hello again all. Second grow well under way, a freebie seed Dr AK Auto, based on AK-47. Growing environment as follows: - Small cabinet - Single auto flowering plant - Blurple LEDs, c. 60W output; plus 6500k white LED side lights, c. 36W output - Growing in soil (mix of compost, peat moss, perlite and vermiculite) in a washing up bowl - Using basic fertilisers at low concentration (Miracle Gro, Doff tomato feed) otherwise plain water - Watering using classic Blumat carrots from milk bottle reservoirs - Temperatures at the very top of the canopy are around 29/30ºC maximum, to 22/24ºC minimum during lights off. Temperature falls off quite a bit lower down. About a month ago there were some higher temperatures but that was well before current problems started. Up to a couple of weeks ago, there were no problems with this grow. Now that flowering is fairly well advanced, two problems are noticeable. - excess nitrogen caused by over feeding (dark leaves) - brown leaf spots on upper surface only (worst affected leaves feel dry and a bit crispy) I had been adding some diluted liquid fertiliser into the Blumat reservoirs, which may be the cause of all the problems as I cannot effectively flush this out. I've recently emptied the reservoirs and substituted plain water for now. So no new nutrients going into the soil. Up to this point I've been assuming the problem is nutrient burn, but the leaves don't show classic symptoms like brown tips. It's possible the brown leaf spots are just from over feeding, but I also wonder if there might also be a deficiency (Calcium?) or possibly light burn also. Most of the damaged leaves are in the central area where the lights are most intense. As the plants grew, the top of the canopy got within 30cm of the lights (uppermost buds were 22cm away). Today as a precaution I lowered the plant by 17cm so the canopy is between 39cm and 47cm from the lights. Some pics below at different stages. Anyone hazard a guess at what is going on? Have I called it right, and if so am I taking the right steps to resolve the issues? --- Day 57. Dark leaves notable, but otherwise seems healthy. --- Day 64. Leaf spots on some fan leaves. --- Day 71. Leaf spots spreading and yellow/brown now.
  17. After my last post i flushed and fed only water , however the issue doe not seem to be getting better. I probably have another 2-3 weeks to harvest..... Will I feed or not
  18. Do these girls look like they need a stronger feed ? Kinda look pale to me opinions?
  19. Hi all! I hope we are all doing well. I have a quick question before I begin this year and that is what are people’s favourite nutes? Had a fairly good year last year but feel like the nutes I used let me down so I’m just curious as to what people think are the best. I’ve heard a lot of good about biobizz, can anyone confirm this? just want something g reliable and to help out as much. Thanks in advance guys
  20. Good evening growers, Setup: Hydro drain to waste. Going into week 1 of flower. Strain: RQS Green Crack Punch Using Shogun nutrients. Silicon Ph down to 5.8 A & B Katana roots Calmag Zenzyme Sumo boost. During veg i went up to 1.6 EC So I am starting week 1 of flower at 1.6 EC & will increase it by .2 each week. What I want to know is do i have the right idea? Thanks
  21. Does anyone use PK Warrior. I have read that it's pretty potent and is best used lightly from week 4 -7 at 1/4 strength of recommended dose than what it suggest on shogun charts. Has anyone used this? Thoughts ?? Results & any alternatives?? Thanks
  22. I’ve got a nutrient schedule for the nutes I’m using. It goes 2 wks seedlings, 4 wks vegetative, 9 wks flowering. They say give pk in week 5 of flower. I’m growing autos for my next grow which harvest in 9 wks from seed. I figure the first 4 wks of the autos life would be veggy growth? which week of the 9 wk lifespan of the auto would I give the pk?, as if I give it in wk 5 of its lifespan it’s only in it’s really early flowering stages. And if I give 5 wks after the 4 wks veggy growth, it will be chop week. So when for the pk does anyone have any experience? mysticriver
  23. 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!
  24. 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
