36 day of flower (5th week)
ph 5.8 (need help learning ppm meter)
Lights Mars hydro TSL 2000 watts & Vipar 600 watts
5x5 tent indoors
thats where im lost. what should my ppm be going in and coming out? @Seeddog
So the schedule gives you the suggested ppms to feed the plant . It is located directly under the Week # . In your case 600-800 for week #11 , if the water that is collected coming out of the plant is over 800 that would tell you the plant is not consuming all the nutrients . Do you know what the numbers are ? I’ll tag in some others that may be able to help better explain this , @Missiles @kabongster I’ve been sick with flu like symptoms and I’m kind of out of it right now .
I got you @Seeddog
Let me see if I can tag someone else for us @Covertgrower can you help here I’ve never used these nutes
You’re on the right track @Seeddog
@DeTHC420 based on the schedule your PPM should be approximately 500-700. Be sure to measure before and the run off. This will tell you if your plant is still feeding, or not feeding at all.
Thank you @Covertgrower
thanks for the response @Seeddog Sorry to hear that hope you get well ASAP! ppm coming out range from 600 to 800 and going in 1400 to 1700 @Missiles @Covertgrower
gh micro gro bloom and koolbloom liquid and molasses
Next time you feed, take a reading before the molasses. That will also drive the numbers up unnecessarily, as skew the readings. Molasses will probably be filtered out some when you get the readings but not all. This will leave a bit of mystery to it all. Lol.
I think overall you could continue feeding, as the numbers are still being reduced when comparing run off numbers to feed numbers.
This only my opinion. We can tag some others too. @myfriendis410 @mattybear
Thanks guys for the help . @DeTHC420 be careful with that Dry Koolbloom and follow directions as it’s some strong stuff . More is not always better . Great looking buds by the way .
Hope you get to feeling better @Seeddog ! Inspector 4 will take over till you feel better
Thanks Mel … She is doing what I’m doing , belly up , at the moment lol !
Today I just gave them ph water 100-200ppm going in and 600-840ppm coming out. Was that salt build up? If So, should i water them again ph water alone?
this is my 1st grow so im still learning. i want to increase my buds size.
They’ll get bigger. No worries there. Just give them time
That ppm is good for her size. It’s actually a little low but she looks great!
today i fed them by the chart and ppm going in was 900, coming out was 1100??? im confused now. its been 3 waters before this feed. i water 1 time a day, skip watering at least 1 day a week, i am in coco and it dry out quick, do i need to ph water more or is that right numbers for ppm? And thanks for all the
love and help!!! @Missiles @Covertgrower @HornHead @Seeddog
You absolutely need to ph your feeds. I also wouldn’t be too concerned with runoff numbers in coco, if fed properly. This is because if you’re watering to runoff daily, since coco is inert and only receives what you feed, as long as you’re in the right ppm range for the stage of growth, and getting proper runoff, you will fine
But ph your feeds between 5.7-6.2. Varying ph within this range would be optimal
what is considered proper run off in ppm? my ph is 5.8 going in and 6.4 run off. @MattyBear
