Just looking for some input on how I'm doing

She is a skittles autoflower getting ready to start week 5 tomorrow from when I dropped the seed in the mother earth brand coco coir and perlite mix only, she got full dose of nutes 5 days out of 7 this week other 2 days she got just water, any input is welcome and appreciated, happy growing everyone!!

There is calmag in my nutrients that I’m using but I do have a bottle of it as well that I have not been adding any extra, I was looking at that and was waiting to see if it came up on the new leaves as well

If it were me I would cut the streangth back to half and do nutes one day and water the next. I feel like less is best sometime.
Looks good :wink:

@HippieRunner may I ask is there something you see in her that might tell you that, I only ask to learn, thank you

With her being so young I feel that the soil would already have enough healthy stuff in it to keep her gping for awhile. With you adding nutes to it 5/7 days her little roots are getting flooded with so many nutes.
From what I can see she looks of. Alittle dark coloring in the upper interior surface but nothing bad.
I only know what I have learned/noticed on past grows. I have found that the plants I grow tend to grow faster and healthier with alittle less nutes than others may suggest.
Happy growing…

A couple of questions need to be answered first before a determination can be made about feed frequency.
The first question is what is the ppm of the nutrient solution?
What is your runoff ppm?
The primary benefit of coco is how often you feed the plants. Very little nutrients are retained in coco and therefore needs to be added with each watering.
Check out cocoforcannabis.
RX Green technologies has a short good article About Coco Coir. It is short and also covers CEC (cation exchange capacity). It is the reason coco works and why you need to feed often.

he is using mother earth coco and perlite, there are no nutes in there and is like growing in hydro. i used this on my first grow. you need to water and feed every day. at this plant size i was giving 1/4 strength nutes about a 1/4 to 1/2 liter of the water nute mix every day.

It’s actually not only “like” hydro it is a hydroponic method. Think of the coco as hydroton balls and you as a drip line.
