Hellraiser grows Cherry Ice Cream clones, Jacks vs Advanced Nutrients, making feminized seeds

Ussualy I have explained things multiple times in my own grow journals and on countless threads around the forums. The search option should help you out.

I’m not really hanging around here much anymore but someone always fills the gap.

@Hellraiser looking really good friend. Super. Healthy

So then you don’t do the water till runoff and let it dry up pretty decent before repeating rather the 1/2gal ea a day instead…is there any difference in benefit or not between the two ways?

As to comparisons of plants on different nutrients I’m reminded of my wife when looking at Christmas trees, live or dead. (No value judgements here BTW, just a little humor/hubris?)

“You decide, they all start looking the same to me”

I can hardly make objective observations based upon photos/notes from a finished grow, never mind in the midst of a current grow.

That reinforces my belief that I’ve got lots to learn, and I’m in the right place to get there.

IF I show up and do the work

Aside from the nutrients, this newbie can never avoid the simplicity of your grows really.

If I SEE instead of looking, I SEE 4 plants, 4 fans, maybe 4 light boards (guessing) and that means lots of quality time/ingredients for the “children”…

THAT is a result of experience and knowing ones limitations; including ones equipment.

I cannot overstate it, but that’s my goal.

I have done it both ways. With my first coco grow with Zkittlez, I waited til the top of the coco had some dryness to it (light brown color) before watering, kinda treating it like soil but not letting it dry out as much as I would in potting soil. Then on my 2nd coco grow with Banana Kush, I went with keeping the coco moist at all times. Both ways worked fine but I liked keeping the coco moist a bit better, easier to manage the amount of water going in and getting the amount of runoff I want and I think the plants do a little better with a constant level of moistness which I believe keeps the coco ppm/EC at a more consistent level as ppm/EC goes up as the coco gets dry.

But even with the 1/2 gal a day, at the plants current size, the coco is not water-logged and is considerably lighter the next morning but not to the point of any dry coco at the top.

In the 7 gallon that I don’t think I will do again for some time, I kept it moist. Every third watering I went to run off. Did it today. Took about 20 gallons.

How’s your grove bags working out? I had a couple of the 1 oz zippers come unglued opening it up, not getting rid of my mason jars yet!

Uh oh! Hopefully this is something they will fix… If these bags are truly as good as they claim, then I hope they can keep QC up to stick around… I know I won’t be buying if they unglue like that.
