You have to give us more than that to work on Bro.... how old, what medium are you planning on using, what have you given them so far? What lights etc etc.

 

Some pics may also help, then someone can give you the info you need.

 

I started a Think Big direct in a 20L airpot full of Coco, started her on EC 0.7 and built up to EC 1.0 in veg, dropping to EC 0.9 in Bloom. She should be fairly easy to grow,  once she gets cracking. How old are your ones Bro?

I did think quality and quantity would not go hand in hand, I was more curious on the yield.

Forgive me if im wrong, but at day 3 after hatch, you need to give them the light that is going to be used, and have them potted out, in final pot, on a veg nute Ec of 0.3.......  propagater's for hatch to day 3. Day 12 now, so they aint had nute for 9 days, ouch !...

 

De-Chlorinated water ?, do you mean you have added "Aquarium" de-chlorin fluid to nute water craig 1 mate ??..... better to aerate strongly for 24hrs, to blow chlorine clean of with oxygenation craig1......... as de-chlorin fluid, binds out salts in water treated, and will do same to nutes put in, after de-chlorination...    rendering % nute "Chelated" out of service ;)    Automaster

First time on Autos, no, not dechlorinated via liquid just agitated water from the tap that has been stood to evaporate any nasties. 

 

No pics 

 

yes I use a blue lab truncheon

Th eco chareg brown granules, aint bad kit F1.......... i used it last year........... it last about 5 to 6 wks, watering to run off then leaving one or two days, etc........... certainly last through the veg stage........... it's nitrogen high on the NPK good for veg...........

 

F1......... are you in cocco or organic ??  as i take it the eco charge went into soil ? when you mixed compy up etc ?... what compy do you use if you aint on the cocco and or pebbles etc ??.....      Glad all is going well........ if you are in cocco, better to get a Ph pen, as cocco and pebbles, you defo dont wanna exceed Ph 6.3......... if you is on hard tap water, your feed ph is bound to be above 6.3 bruv ??
