I know I can’t be the only one on here that has issues with hard to very hard water. Mine here comes in at 535ppm. Very hard. I have been using bottled water for this grow I am doing right now. I decided to do a test grow to see if I could make this work with the flora grow micro. I am going to use just straight tap water again. I figure if this works, it might help some one else out down the road. If I see issues start. I will start mixing my tap water with a little bottled water till I fix the problem.
I have tons of these seeds so no waste there. I checked the seeds and am sure i got a female this time. I guess we will see.
So here is the plan. I am going to grow one GS plant. “generic seed” I will be growing in coco coir & perlite. I used the same last grow just a different brand of coco. For nutes, I am using the floragro trio. I changed the micro out for there hard water micro. I have read good things about it. I grew 3 of these same plants last grow, and had a lot of issues that I am pretty sure were mostly tied to the hard water. I am using bottled water for this grow I am doing in the other room and every thing is going great. It would be nice if If this works. I do have a RO system on order for my other plants.
If these make it to week 5 or 6 clean. I may be ok for the whole grow.
Well, lets get this started. I have a one week old plant I started for this. I did use bottled water for starting it. I wanted to make sure I had a healthy plant to start with. And who can’t afford a 12 oz bottle of water lol That will get you to where we are now.
Here is our test plant at week one yesterday. I forgot. This will be under a couple CFL lights for at least the first 3 or 4 weeks
