  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. Do these girls look like they need a stronger feed ? Kinda look pale to me opinions?
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Please post any general questions you may have and we'll get back to you ASAP
  7. 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
  8. 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

  10. 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!

  12. 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

  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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 :-)
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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
  25. 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
