Lol nice so if I do it today I should do just like a quarter strength each quart and do one at a time till it gets better
Id do half and id mix up a 1/2 gallon
Perfect did the half gallon feed on the big one, Ppm was 950ish and ph around 6.4.
Will feed her again not this next watering but the one after and get them buds looking gooooood
Next time the soil is dry start with regular phd water get runoff. Test that runoff if it is below 1000ppm tds. Feed again. If the tds is above 800 do a half feed if it is bellow 800 do a full feed. You can push the soil tds during flower to 1200, 1400, even 1600 if she is large enough. I shoot for between 1200 and 1400 during flower. You can do it this way everytime the soil is dry. For me it just falls into a rythm of feed, water, feed, water. You always have the option of adjusting with plain phd water if the feed runoff isnt to your liking.
Well it looks good right now so what I might do is next time just do a gallon and a half of water with feed and see where she’s at. Then if it’s too high run the plain water through it.
The small one has been right in the pocket with the half feedings but I’ll adjust to get it above a 1000. The small one was last feeding so like I said right in the pocket
Winner winner chicken dinner!
Your doin great my friend keep it up+
Cant wait to get some different strains in there!
One other thing though, the chart from fox farms says to feed only twice a week. Should I follow that or just feed when the tds is right?
Says it will reduce stress but idk if it really will do anything hoping you do
Once you find the sweetspot it will likely work out being feed every other watering. Which will turn out to be twice a week +/- at least thats how it works for me. Also remember the fox farm feed schedule has its whole lineup in mind from trio all the way down the list so, let the runoff tds be your guide. For me it works out to do full feed, then dry then phd water then dry then full feed, etc, etc, etc. Micromanaging maintaining the tds at a certain level is outside of my capacity for patience.
Alright I plan on feeding the smaller one anyway next watering but I’ll check tds and just feed as needed. Just don’t want the plants to be shocked from feeding more than twice a week.
Youll be good as long as the runoff ph and tds are in range. She will tell ya whats up. If she freaks out back off a lil bit.
So I watered today with no feed. Was around 1300 last time coming out with like 6.3 ph. After today, reading over 7 ph and 400 Ppm.
Could that be from pouring too fast? I got a watering can and it flew out of there on accident on me for a second or two. She should be fine to feed next watering right?
Also a few big fan leaves have turned mostly yellow, figuring it’s from feeding the shit out of it last week. Thoughts?
I mean overall this one looks ok. Buds are nice, crown nug is nice and dense along with a few other buds. Coming up on week 10!
Prolly should have fed her today. This is likely the cause of your yellowing leaves. She is hungry. Figure that if at the last watering you were looking at 1300 ppms it was very likely to be bellow 1000 today. Id feed her today if you can if not you will have to wait untill next time the soil is dry.
Her need for nutes will increase now that you are into flowering.
Agreed. Out of likes!!!lol
God damn then she’s consuming them at a crazy pace! I am planning on feeding next watering. I had stuff to do so it will have to wait. It’s every 2 full days the lot is lite so won’t be a long time
And this might be a dumb question but what is the best way to catch runoff? I have a dish that’s basically the exact same diameter of the pots that I sit them on and catch it but I feel like that also might be screwing ip the readings.
Cuz I fed that plant three times last week and the most recent time I ran feed through it 3 times before it got to 1300 ppm.
Sometimes in flower if the plant is big enough im adding a gallon of liquid every other day.
This is what I do.
When I wanna flush the soil, I do this.
Alright so like something pretty wide to fit that grate on that’s a good idea
