Yes mate, I been using a & b in coco for at least the last year, no complaints from me, no messing about with meters checking everything, I don't even check the ec anymore, just squirt and feed, simples:yep:

 

Take it easy.Jj:yinyang:

Hi there, I use an a+b grow and bloom for the last year or so.  Works a treat and had good results... Still a newbie and find that environment is the key to success. (Massive thanks to the folk on this website for that)...  I basically just use the ec truncheon to keep ec constant, 2nd week of flower at the mo and ec is 1.2... No big jumps in feed as they bit sensitive to big change.. Got 2 psychosis and 1 canalope haze on go in auto pots (other haze said fukit am deed). 

Since ma water soft I do add a little cal/mag but nothing else.. I used bud candy but seem to choke autopots a bit so got binned.

Man I love autopots..easy for a lazy bugger like me ........

If there is an easier way to grow, I would love to know... Cheers gonge

Haven’t really looked at Remo only ever heard good things thou maybe an option once I run out of AN.

Thanks for the advice matey, learnt this the hard way haha had slight nute burn last week, then yesterday ph started dropping slowly and ppms we’re going up so emptied half my res refilled with plain ph’d water and let it stabilise then topped up with some nutes tonight and seems nice and stable with ppm of 600~700 /

This is my first attempt at a scrOG, also I have 2 runts in there but didn’t see the point in outing them as I’d have nothing to replace them with so using them as guinea pigs haha, the one in the pics I monster cropped 2 days ago and it’s grown quite a bit since then, but whatever they produce in the end of just a bonus as I ain’t expecting much lol

@Tzy1777  hi mate. Na a have no pictures or diary yet. (  bit of a shitebag till I get it close to being right :george:).. But getting there... Doing a scrog myself and let them veg an extra week due to loosing a haze... Just stopped growing!   Got a 6 hunner above and 6"fan.  

I noticed the AN stuff smells a bit and after a few days seems to look like trea leaves floating around.. I just give it a guid steer with a spatula.. Job done hehe....

Will give taking pictures a try, its about time I tried.  My ec at no is 1.3 and that's the max all go I think.  6 weeks to go . ma jars are empty.. Fukin school boy error :wallbash:

good work bro.

 

flipped mine exactly a week ago, net has really filled up struggling keeping on with training them lol getting to much, seriously stretching.

my 2 loose plants at the back are getting pathetic probably about 1.5m tall and both look like big bushes haha no signs of any bud forming yet reckon there gonna go on a 2 week stretch.

will upload some pics in a bit when I can get in there.

One thing a lot of people get wrong is that they think, higher strength nutes means more nutes in the plant which means more yield.

 

What the case actually is, is that higher strength nutes can mean your plants have to work harder to get H2O from your nute solution, which means less than optimal water uptake which means less yield. A nute strength too high can make your plants liable to heat stress for example.

 

Each strain has an optimum nute strength it prefers. If you keep your nutes at that strength then you will get the maximum yield possible for your environment.

 

For most plants this tops out at 1.4EC/700PPM TDS.

 

Plants take in water through osmosis which is passive and means a nute strength too high will stop this process. They take in nutes through ionic transfer, which is an active process and can cope with a wider range of nute strength and still supply the plant with enough nutes although too much water will disrupt this process. Water and nutes need to be in the right ratio for the plant.
