Hello! I'm Ironhead. I have been growing in coco for about 5 years now and I've drummed up a lot of interest in the way that I do things. I've previously had a thread that outlines what I do, but it got a bit confusing as I was still figuring things out. I will state this warning now as I did before, this thread is subject to change at any time.. I usually let ya know if I'm gonna change something.. And I've got it figured out pretty good now, so maybe there won't be a need for that, just wanted to let y'all know. Anywho.. This time I think I'm gonna break it up into a veg and flower mix.. They are a little bit different, but just as easy as it was before. I'll also show my cloning and seed start methods, how I water, and other techniques I think of as I come across them. So first off, let me say that this is definitely based around the work that GratefulH3ad and Lucas did long before I came along.. I just recognized the need for something more than just the basics as these guys preached, which is the way I grew for years, but once I started with the additives, the cannabis really got good. Best part of this formula is you can use tap water with no PH'ing or using a PPM meter.. Just isn't needed. Hands down the very best part of this whole deal.. I hated messing with those stupid pens. That being said, veg formula is as follows: General Hydroponics Micro at 6ml per gallon--$11.36/quart : General Hydroponics Bloom at 9ml per gallon--$8.72/quart : General Hydroponics Cali-magic at 1.5ml per gallon. If you want plants that grow fast with no deficiencies, this is the stuff to get ya there. Must have! Cheap too! --$12.50/qt SM-90 at 5ml per gallon throughout all of veg and flower until the flush at the end. This is for the roots.. Makes big shiny bright white roots explode out of the pots.. Also deters bugs in the most awesome way.. No more pests of any kind.. Helps to prevent mold and rot. It's a must have.--$17.00/quart : House & Gardens Drip Clean at 1ml per gallon also throughout all of veg and flower until the flush at the end. This is great stuff.. Keeps the salt build up to a minimum.. Before I used this, I was getting lots of salt build up on the pots and down in the drip trays.. It was a butt load, not just a lil bit. The Drip Clean knocked all that out.. Keeps the medium nice and salt free.--$19.99/250ml : ---------------------------------------------------- Above this line is all I start my seeds with.. Straight down into 50/50 coco and perlite. Cover for 48 hours, then put under light. I only bottom feed in the tray they are in, never feed from the top at this stage.. Let them drink as they want. : Once the seedlings have 3-4 sets of leaves, I'll start the Root Excellerator at 1ml per gallon.. This stuff is pricey but so worth it for the roots. Love the big thick tangled root mass that comes from using this product.--$62.11/250ml : Photosynthesis Plus at 7.5ml per gallon The stinky rotten egg stuff.. Haha wait til you. Crack this bottle. P-yew. But it works! And it works well! Has all kinds of bacteria and fungus in there. You can see how it positively effects the plants almost overnight. They really enjoy this stuff. I give it twice a week in veg and flower.--$18.86 32oz : That's the veg feeding with the seedling mix separated from the full veg mix. I'll feed every feeding in veg and flower. Never water only. Always nutrients. The Drip Clean keeps it all clean so there isn't a need to flush the medium. Flower formula coming up next!
