Thanks for contributing kushman, looks like you have a nice setup going..give you rep if I had it. Hopefully some more people will share their time and info as I think this thread could help a lot..You mentioned the Canna line, had any experience with Canna Coco?..I'm dying to try a 50:50 ratio with Canna, Pro-Mix, and some added perlite, vermiculite
Yeah none of this for me is completely fine tuned, thats why I hesitated to share to begin with, but oh well..it's been working well recently..
-I think the feeding every watering just makes sense and plants seems to like it. Water
Filtered tap water, once in bloom usually watered/fed every 3 days..ph usually aiming for pH 6.2-6.4...have also heard it said not to use 'ph up' but I'm not sure what else to do
..if I don't use it then I run into problems and if I cut back nute levels to compensate then I run into problems?..am only going by ph right now, still need to get ppm meter.
-I'm planning on switching to a complete organic setup once my current nutes are used up Nutes
(currently running Fox Farms GB, TB, and BB with Snow Storm Ultra and molasses and have had good results..tried Super Thrive for a little while but am still undecided and am going to discontinue). GB and TB usually max out at 3/4 of recommended amounts, same with SSU...BB and molasses at 1-2 tsp/gal, with SSU foliar at 4ml/gal.
-Not sure if its just the Snow Storm but the plants really seem to like and look healthier after foliar feeding. I usually foliar and feed regular throughout flowering and am interested to try other Humboldt Co. products..Have also been looking at Peace of Mind stuff but am also in only coco/perlite..so maybe coco specific if I decide to stay with only coco..
-TB seems to be lacking in N imo or maybe its something else and thats where the solubles are suppose to come in? Have been experimenting with giving both GB and TB for the first 1-3wks of bloom and then switching to only TB to develop buds, GB added at reduced amounts if needed.
Currently in Pro-Mix with about 30% coco and 20% perlite added...dolomite lime in Pro-Mix seems to counter cal-mag deficiency with coco well, but my next run is in only coco/perlite. 3 gal bags, have had good results and will be trying 'partial hempy' setup in a larger 4.5 gal soon.
I run a small, personal setup. 150 watt hps with approx 60-120 watts cfl side-supplemental, Veg cab approx 150 watts cfl.
