So, I am going to be starting a new RDWC AF grow in the coming weeks. I am waiting to get everything set up before I start. In the mean time I am looking for some nute guidance and general knowledge/advice from those who have used the same system/setup, nutes, and genetics I am planning to tackle.
First, I have grown in the past with phenomenal success but it has been many many years ago and things have changed since those days but it is my hopes that this will be like riding a bike.
I’ll list genetics, set up, and nutrients we plan to go with and would love feed back.
I plan to keep this grow journalized here and ongoing so this could help someone else in the future.
Genetics: Zkilltes (4) & Sup Lemon Haze (4) - Auto’s
I’ll be using an 8 site CCH20 RDWC System
600w Black Dog Full Spec LED
8000 BTU AC
Dehum - with range on/off switch
CO2 - with Hygrom/PPM reg
2 Rotating Fans
Closed system Can Fan 6" 560CFM capable
Air Pump and Nute depot will be located outside the tent with a 32 gal overflow site.
Have a Combo meter in Nute Depot to monitor PH, TDS, PPM, ED 24/7
I plan to start the seeds under low intensity T5’s and move to big tent once they have root shoots showing.
Will be growing in Rockwool Cubes.
I also plan to use the GH Expert recirc nute chart (until I get back in the grove) and I also plan on adding the following additional things:
Liq Karma - I’ve read that this could cause nute lockout if introduced to the nute solution. Is this true? In the past I’ve used LK during the seedling/cloning cycle and then as a folier spray only.
Are AF’s okay to use folier’s on during the veg cycle? If so, in the past I used a LK & Dia Nec combo.
Plan to keep room temps in the range of 72-78, after seedling 60% RH during veg and 45-50%RH during flower. Water temps I’ll be shooting for 65-68F. I plan to recirc the room and will keep air pump and nute depot outside tent (I think I said this above but if not).
Anything else I need to know? Please feel free to jump in an share. I am shooting for 1.2 g / watt if possible? I am sure I will need all the help I can get since it has been so long since the last run.
