Thanks very much @muffybunny
I don’t have any b-52 but I will add that to my research and may just grab a jug today. I’m not sure if I have root rot or not and likely won’t until they die or I harvest because pulling them out of their pots would surely stop any progress and I am not going to do that so, the b-52 and your experience plays large in my plans now!!
It’s funny, and par for the course that, when I decided to grow indoors my gf and I had the most routine, predictable and genuinely enjoyable daily, weekly and monthly routines and habits. Rarely a visitor, kids grown and enjoying independence, friends occupied with grandkids and such. A wide open calendar if you will.
Weed was voted legal a year ago, in January 2017 or around there became legal to possess and grow your own and I set out to gather the supplies and make a plan. Sled season ends about mid-late March and after that I was all about the grow. Since that time, our lives have been complete chaos through no fault of our own. It literally has been one thing after another drawing us away from home, away from our routines and literally turning life (for me anyway) completely on end, 180° out of phase. And I decided to quit smoking. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAsniffle, sweat,HAHAHAHA see me smiling!!!
I appreciate very much the input. I do not think the BBA’s are suffering from any of these reasons however; there have been many weeks where my attention to detail is non existent so I may own some of it. I WILL get to a method and system where it is “plug and play” at least, that is the goal.
So you grew ILGM BBA? How big did they get, when did you switch to bloom nutes and had you experienced any outlier type traits growing these plants (heavy/light feeders, etc).
I have heard such good things, from smoke reports from those that have grown it, that I am eager to bring them to some type of harvest (plus I have 17 more BBA beans).
The coco, the autopots, the nute choices are all experiments for me. I wanted a KISS method of growing but part of that is finding the right combo (strain, nute, medium, etc). I have to remind myself when I see plants struggling but this was all an experiment (first 1-6 grows) to determine how I wanted to proceed.
Do I have to measure ins/outs, have scheduled flushes, deal with certain pests, etc or is there another way??
Honestly, organic soil with plain balanced water is sounding more and more attractive and truly, if I had the set up like @Willd I would grow outdoors only, but I don’t.
Have a good one and thanks again.
