A question from a fellow grower;
I’m setting up my first grow tent (hydroponic bubbler) with NL fems from ILGM. Rather small grow, 4 plants, to keep it within the legal limit of my town.
I have a friend who is a programmer and he’s working on automating the dosage of nutrients and ph balance solutions by using sensors to see when the levels are low in the hydroponic tub. He also has water level sensors to top the tub with water from a bucket when it runs low.
Since this is my first grow, I was trying to research how much nutrient solution I should dose and how often. I’ve read that you should start dosing half of the recommended amount on the bottle and slowly increasing it to the recommended amount. I’m using Dynagro Grow and Flower nutrients and they say 1 tablespoon per gallon in your tank so I’ll be using 2.5 tablespoons for my 5 gallon. Is this the plan that I should follow? Also I couldn’t find any clear info on how often I should dose the nutrient solution and how much I should dose each time. Could you give me any clear directions and recommendations?
Thanks a lot!
