How do I raise my ppm on my girls. Right now ppm are 411 . I’m in veg stage 2weeks &2 days .i need my ppm to be 800 - 1000 ppm . I’m using ILGM nutrients.
I’m not a pro but usually ppm is raised by adding more nutrients a little at a time until it’s where you want it. I assume that’s run off ppms. What’s the ppms of your water before adding nutes? I’ll get some more help to verify. @Covertgrower
Yep. That’s it.
No that’s not run off water . That my growtime fertilizer when I checked it from my spray bottle.
ILGM nutrient cart it says to put 2/3 of a tsp per gallon .
To get a more accurate reading check ppms on your water before adding nutes. Check again after adding nutes then give enough water to run off the bottom and check the ppms there. Run off ppms are what your looking for. I’m not familiar with ILGM nutes so cant help there. Is your plant healthy looking otherwise?
Ok I reread your post. Plants are just over 2 weeks old? @Covertgrower. Are you familiar with ilgm nutes?
No I’m not familiar with ILGM mutes. I’m a first timer
So just learning. What are nutes .
I am not, but I know they’re powdered. Let me go take a look, see if I can find a feed schedule somewhere.
Nutes are nutrients. I’m checking with covert grower to see if he’s familiar with the ilgm nutrient line. I just dont want to steer you wrong. Putting an @ in front of someone’s name is how you tag them here to get their attention. You definitely want to check ppms of your water before adding nutes then subtract that from what your runoff ppms are and that will give you actual ppm of the soil. Hope this makes sense. @Hellraiser hellraiser are you familiar with ilgm nutes? Froggy are you growing in soil if so which one?
@kdawg here’s the feed schedule, I tried to post just the picture, but it wasn’t a jpeg.
I’m using happy frog fertilizer.
Thanks to all of you for responding to my dilema I’m having I appreciate all the help from this great forum. I do have the ILGM feeding schedule.
I dont think you need to add nutrients to happy frog for a few weeks. I’d water with enough to get enough run off to check those ppms before adding any more nutrients fyi. Make sure your water ph is in an average range as well. Good luck and happy growing.
Before increasing input, be sure to measure runoff ppms.
You want your ppms at 750 according to this chart. The only way you will know is to measure the run off not what your putting in. Plus read up on happy frog soil. It already has nutrients in it. Most dont add more nutes for 4 to 5 weeks. Ppms are measured by testing the run off.
Kdawg & drinkslinger I would like to thank you guys for taking time out to help a new beginner first timer. All the information will help me out very much. I like this forum everyone is very helpful . Thanks again
for everything guys . I will put some pictures up soon.
Nope, never used ilgm nutes.
