Has anyone ever used them if when and how much to I need to use and when do I start using it. Right now the ph on my runoff is 6.5 on the Gelato and 6.8 on the Zkittles. Thanks for the Advice in advance.

You shouldn’t need to add any nutes for 4-5 weeks

I keep an eye on PPM with a TDS meter… when it drops below 800 is when I start feeding (unless I see an obvious deficiency)

Ok thanks

Don’t over water them and don’t water directly on or against them. Water about 2in away all the way around. That way the roots will spread out. Wait for soil to dry out before watering again. Over watering can cause damage to roots and stunt plant growth and or kill the plant.

Lol grow inside. I’ve never done an outside grow. I’m just in a 2x2, but most recent harvest was 1/2 lb. Are they in the ground or in a pot outside so you can move them around? if you can move them i think that would be ideal.

Gotcha I’m growing outdoors in a greenhouse in AZ I had to put up a 30% shade screen on the west side to give the plants a break from direct sunlight in the afternoon. I have a swamp cooler in there to keep temps below 100 on the really hot days. Keeping soil damp all the time is not recommended even in high heat. Shade is what you need. Marijuana does best if you let the soil dry out between waterings just don’t let it get too dry. Stick your finger in the soil up to the second knuckle if it feels damp/moist, don’t water it yet.

I’ve kept my plants in the greenhouse with the temps over100, not for days on end though. The plants still grow well, they just need to be watered a little more often coz the heat will dry them out.
Good luck!
