I have to be honest arnold i did read a couple of posts suggesting you didn't rate the bs and i couldn't understand it as i always see improvments overnight after using it, thicker stems, healthier looking plants. I understand why now lol.

Always a good idea, but especially so in this case. I intend to start using this gear properly as from now. I have a load of cuts and seedlings that are just perfect for another experiment.

Hang on, the dose ... it was ... what? Oh yeah, 10ml per Litre, that's it .... excellent!

:wassnnme:

Frigging heck Arnie, I bet you needed an axe to chop those buds up and a blow lamp to burn them :ouch:

I've been saying from the outset, told everyone including PM 1ml per 2 litres works wonders and don't use after week 3 of flowering, not sure how many times I've typed it and said it face to face, for some unknown reason no one seems to take it in.

Other tip always shake well before use otherwise you get sedimentation, if not used often, a glass marble in the bottle helps to get everything back into suspension.
Q. how do i make seeds?

A. You take a splinter off my cross, tie a few hairs to one end of it, dip the hairs into the pollen and lightly brush the pistils with it.

I've read that its best using organic nutes immidiately after mixing them up. Does this apply to bio-silicon too or could I use some I mixed up about 12 hrs ago? I'm watering seedlings at the moment with 0.25ml/litre and they're needing watered at different times.

havent used it on seedlings myself, i normally wait till the plant has a few sets of leafs
& has been potted up to a 1 ltr pot before i use BS.

if you cant mix up smaller amounts of feed, you can get away with using something like a whisk
to aerate the water or you can use an air pump & air stone.

Cheers mate. Ill use my pump and airstone in future. I used it on 1 week old seedlings there and they've all responded really well. Had a few stalked up cause they were falling over and 12 hrs later they were upright and rigid and proper healthy looking.

Hi mate, you're not wrong there! Impossible to light, it was like I'd rolled a spliff with a lead core! The ash was jet black and hit the ashtray with a "Klonk!" every time. Lesson learned! Now there is a big bit of paper on the Grow Room door saying "Silicone .... 1Ml max per Litre, by order Oldtimer1!"

:woot:
lol Frustrating, isn't it?!
Well, I've at least read you right this time oldtimer my friend! I just dosed two seedling with it the other day, and I swear they look belligerent if not downright and rudely aggressive as a result! I think i can hear them growling at me.... Grrrrrrr! Really, they look so.... Robust today!

Do you use it on your Mums at all oldtimer? I was thinking that maybe Mums don't want such strong stems? Or have I got that arse-about-tip, as usual?!

The lethal dose ratio (LD-50) for cannabis is estimated to be around 1:20,000 to 1:40,000 which means you have to consume 20,000 to 40,000 times as much cannabis as is contained in one cannabis joint to induce death. This means you would have to consume something like 1,500 lbs in 15 minutes to induce a lethal response. There are no known fatalities from the substance and it is considered non- toxic...

Hope that's just a typo mate, he's saying half a ml per litre. :thumsup: :smokin:

Thanks for that, yes, it was indeed a typo and I am sorry if I've misled anyone.

This product is a must. My plants are spindly compared to last time where I was using the bio-silicon!

I miss my bio-silicon :(

Hi guys,

Reading this thread has got me really worried! I need you to put my mind at ease!!

Basically, I have 7 days left til the chop on my Northern Lights and Papaya plants (1 each). They are only small little things grown in my little stealth cabinet. I've used Bio-Silicon and Bio-Wetter for basically the whole grow, and Old Timer Bloom through flowering. I've followed the schedule for the Bloom, but the wetter and silicon I've stupidly been doing the same measurements and frequency since about week 2, which has been 2ml/l of wetter every feed and 1ml/l of silicon every other feed. I've been feeding my plants 1.25L of water every other day each.

Reading through this thread has scared me because I am 7 days from chop and have still been using the Silicon every other feed at 1ml/l up until the feed just gone last Saturday (so for 7 weeks of flowering). Will this have a big negative impact on the taste of my crop? I'm now planning on just watering this last week with 2ml/l Old Timer Bloom and that's it. Will this be ok? I've noticed in the OP, Plant Magic say to use Bio-Silicon at 1ml/l every feed until harvest (I've been doing every other feed, and will stop for this last week), so this is putting my mind at rest a bit, but will my crop taste aweful now?

Any help to put my mind at ease would be great as I'm a worrier!!

Cheers,

Fazza.
