New grower 2nd grow

This is my 2nd grow. I am bad about names but after my last post I switched to 5 gal fabric. Start my seeds in rockwool and mixed my soil coco and organic soil with perlite. Im using liquid micro, grow and bloom cause it was free. I mix 4 tablespoons of each with 5 gallons of water and then get the ph right. I also bought a cheap waterer cause im gone some. Any help??? Sugg

the nutrients are 4 tbs of each waiting innetween. That is for 15 liters of water. I use 5 gal ale pales. So the mix is lighter than recommended. These are bergmans gold.

That is not helpful information. Still don’t know what you are feeding your plants. Maybe, just a suggestion, fill out the Support Ticket if you would like quality help??


Can’t see a thing under the rave party lights. :frowning:


I use the same nutrients. During veg you want to mix it low dose so say 1 ml per liter of water. After it has 4 sets of nodes you can up it a bit to .1.5 ml then next feed after that hit 2 ml per liter for rest of veg so you don’t burn the plants as their directions are for HYDROPONIC applications. Also make sure you run regular ph water in between feeds. This is what I do in Soil without coco. So maybe someone else can toss in their two cents.

Lol I can feel the frustration and I applaud the quality and professionalism of your response

i dont run plain water at all. I water with the nutrient infused water each day. Am I harming the plants? Seems like they are growing good.

The reason most growers will run plain ph’d water is to avoid mineral salt build up in your root zone. You can do anything the way you wish or want as long as you get the results you want. There is no set way to do any of the required actions to come to a bountiful harvest. However there are rules of thumb. If you’re feeding everyday and are using soil(no matter the percentage) You run the chance of mineral salt accumulating in your root zone. The plain ph water can stop that before you have to do a flush. You may have no issue at all. Just remember this phrase " An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."

Yeah I agree using fresh water in between feedings flush the unwanted materials out. If not it can throw off your ppm readings and can cause over doing it.

U water ur plants every day?

I have a automatic waterer that waters everyday.

Oh gotcha… What did that run u?

I got this a couple months ago. Sort of confusing for me to program but im old and figured it out. Im real happy. I fill up a bucket and let it go for s few days. Mix my nutrientd in 2 - 5 gallon pales.
