I’m in week 6ish of veg. plants have been doing very well, no signs of any real issues. but i know plants do really well until they don’t. i’ve been concerned with salt buildup. I know to feed/water to 20% runoff but honestly have just been eyeballing. They’ve been getting 1 gallon because that’s the size of my watering can. They’re in 3 gallon fabric pots. I’ve been feeding 100% per their recommendations, 4ml sense A and B per liter and 2ml/L B-52.
I’d say on average I feed every 4 days when the medium is dry and the pots are light.
Flushing question. Yesterday I gave them 2 rounds of 1-gallon of feedings to wash out the salts. Advanced Nutrients recommends flushing with full nutes. They also said I should be feeding 1-2x PER DAY which seems a little crazypants. don’t have the time or money for that. Mixing and feeding twice was more than I wanted to do.
In terms of flushing… is there any reason I can’t give them a gallon or so PHd water (or even un-Phd) to flush the salts first and then feed the full nutes right after?
Is anyone out there who uses AN feeding and watering every day??
There’s been somebody nibbling here and there on the leaves and i see a tiny few edges that may be be burned, but overall i’m quite pleased. My grow light shows them with a crazy metallic coloring and sheen which has caused some panic, but when I take them out they look ok.
