Please note, this schedule is for guidlines only. As with any method of growing nothing should be set in stone so to speak. The EC values are good + / - 2.0 points on the meter.

just a q on the ec values and the boost. should you fill your res with water/nutes, up to e.c. 1.8 (or whatever) and THEN add boost at 1.5-2.0ml/l. or should your ec be at the schedule including the the boost?
i'm not arguing, i'm just explaining why i'm right

Personally I add any additives first then my base nutes.

I guess it will be the same with pm,s feed.

sorry to ask a stupid question....

are these EC values including my water EC?

Example for an EC of 1.0 - if my water EC is 0.7 do I only add 0.3 nutes

or

Do I make up nutes to the value of 1.0 EC on top of my water - i.e. total 1.7

thanks

big thumbs up to the plant magic guys who got back to me by email and phone, great follow up :headpain:

the answer is to include the water EC - so the example about be a value of 1.0 and that includes my hard water of 0.6. - i.e. 06. (water) + 0.4 of nutes = 1.0


.....and my maths teacher said I would never amount to anything :)

i only want to know if COCO can be grown well in UK! (know nothing ,but just insterested in the name"CoCo") :toldya: [


They are referring to growing in "coco coir" which is a growing medium made from coconut husks, and is an alternative to growing in soil or hydro. :rofl:

why doesn't it tell you the ml per ltr on the schedule for the grow/bloom? what do people start their seedlings at? i'm sure it says 3-5ml per litre on the bottle which seems quite high

Because everyone's back ground EC may be different then ec values are far more accurate than X amount of ml per litre..

I start seedlings at .8 which is handy for me as that is the ec of my tap water so no food required..

MD84, I've used plant magic nutes on 3 or 4 crops now and I always start my seedlings off on a first feed of 1ml/l grow, that usually gives me a pretty low ec reading of 0.6-0.8 cant quite remember.

Hope this helps :yinyang:

one last thing for now :wassnnme: . it says set the ph to 6 on the bottle., does this mean i can't start off my babies at 5.8 and end at about 6.1 in flower?

I don't understand this?

How do I know what amount of liquid to add if my EC is 0.2?
Am I missing something here?
Like add 2ml to 1ltr of water to get 1.0 EC, so .8 of nutes added?

The amount of liquid's a mute point if you've got an ec meter-vital with pm as despite numerous requests they haven't published even the roughest ml per litre guide.

Plant magic advise to include yr background reading(as they claim it's tailored to uk water),so just keep adding equal amounts of a+b until you reach yr desired ec/cf.

If yr really not familiar with feeding via ec/cf levels(as oppose to just adding a given volume of nutrient), i highly advise you to avoid pm coco nutes for yr first few runs.
Myself and others have found these nutes, especially the "grow" part, to be rather out of wack regarding the npk ratios, so a degree of tinkering via addition of pk 13/14 is often required.
This is nigh on impossible without a meter and familiarity with using it.
