I started growing last summer, and after 5 grows I still have yet to have a successful one.
It’s the same story every time, everything goes great up until flowering and then when flowering hits it’s just problem after problem. This current grow is no different. Was great then when flowering hit all of the leaves got yellow and no matter how much I feed the deficiencies just keep getting worse.
Started off feeding 1/2 strength FF trio after 3 weeks in FFOF and when they started to flower. I would feed every other watering. My runoff ppms are always between 300-1000 and I feed between 500-800 every time. The problem is nobody really explained how ppms and feedings actually work no matter how much I try to figure it out.
I’m under the impression that the ppms are a measurement of how much nutes and stuff is in the water you’re measuring. So if you feed 500 ppm for example, and your runoff comes out at 800, that means that 300 ppm was already in the soil, correct? The problem is, people say that your runoff ppm should be LESS than what you put in, which makes no sense to me - does that mean if I put in 500 ppm and get out 300 ppm, that means I had -200 ppm in my soil? Can someone please clear this up for me? I’m beyond confused
This is what my girls look like after almost 2 months. Is it even worth it to continue this or should I start over, hopefully knowing what I’m actually doing next time? My confidence is beyond shot at this point and all I want is to be able to grow decent buds. I’m so frustrated. Can someone please explain feedings, ppms or what I might be doing wrong. I fed enough N during this grow, there’s no reason my plants should look like this. But, as usual they do, with no explanation as all my numbers (ppms and ph) are all intact.
