Sorry if this has been covered, and I’m sure it certainly has, but I’m still in a mystery state as to how to navigate the flushing piece of this thing.
I’ve been using the Fox Farm Trio feeding schedule w/CalMag as supplement, and a I used molasses on the auto because “I read somewhere” that it had a hand in the frostiness of the flower. I don’t know if it works, but these look like their on their way to frostyville. Of course the ultimate test will be the smoke.
I only put a couple of tsps per gallon because it’s hard to see the color of your RO because it’s so dark.
I flushed yesterday and my TDS was 416 on the Auto, and the RO water looked like motor oil. I’m on the second flush on everything except the auto.
BTW, I Phd about 20 gallons of rainwater at 6.0, and used Clearex.
So my crop was anywhere from 950 to 1,800 before the flush, and after 416 to 750ish.
The Fox Farm schedule I use is from 2019 is use only the Trio, Cal Mag, and I’ve tried Molasses on the Auto.
The ranges they show are much higher than a schedule someone posted here. Assuming you guys use soil, do you test the ppm after mixing up your nutes before you feed them, and then test the RO after you’ve fed them, or wait a few days and test the soil or RO again?
Also, how often do you test the soil?
There’s a lot of info out there, but I believe getting this correct is key.
Thanks in advance.
