Platform 9 4/20

Ok that’s good news! And don’t worry or stress the color? Or do you think dialing the light down a touch will help?

Your grow lights are on in the 2nd picture so I don’t really consider color, nor should you, unless lights are off and you take a picture with flash on.

Most grow lights are 3000k - 3500k and to clearly see cannabis color you need a more blue spectrum light such as 4k

Oh and here is a new post I figured ide make one and stop linking random threads

Hey @Hellraiser @Nicky yall use canna coco right? Do you use the brick or bag? And where do you get it from if so?

Yes I use the canna coco bricks, usually buy it from amazon or ebay (whichever is cheaper at the time).

Ok cool… going with that for when I put the others in final pot. Not having to buff and wash sold me lol. You said you just rehydrate with full strength jacks right? Do you have a ratio for perlite to coco brick or do you even use perlite?

Yes I rehydrate the bricks with full strength Jacks (1.5 gals of water/jacks per brick). I don’t use perlite, though I believe @Nicky does.

Ok cool so ready to use once rehydrated. @Nicky how much perlite for the 40l brick you think? Also this is the perlite I got just a big cheap bag from Lowe’s. I assume it’s ok right? Thanks guys!

I’ve used 50/50 and 70/30

Both work well but 30% is generally used unless using autopots. Autopots recommended 50/50 but I’ve done fine with 30%
I do want to test 100% coco vs 50/50 vs 70/30


I would definitely tune into that comparison. So tag me when or if you do it. Do you have a certain perlite you use or like?

Hey @Hellraiser @Mr_Wormwood @Mr_Wormwood @Newt wondering what y’all that top feed use for watering/feeding? I just been pouring from a milk jug. I’ve seen some will use like a modified pump sprayer or something. Had a high moment the other day where I thought I came up with a genius idea. Needless to say someone beat me to the punch :joy: but couldn’t help but order it and try it out

I use gallon jugs. Not much help, sorry.

That IS cute. But I think it might make getting around the base of the plant awkward. I saw someone used a similar attachment on a wand. Not sure if it was battery or AC powered, but it was powered.

Yeah I’m sure most everyone does but was curious about those that don’t what they do instead

Yeah I don’t have high hopes for the thing but had to give it a try :joy:

@Nicky does the agsil 16H effect the PH ?

I use a gallon pitcher and a 16 oz cup to do my watering, very low tech.
