New here and about to start my first grow. I did have some questions I’m hoping you guys would be able to help out and I’ll include as much detail as I can about what I have.
I’m about to start germinating my seeds and will be growing hydroponically in Promix HP.
I’ll start out in a solo cup then transfer to 5 gallon cloth pots I have.
I’ve read that once planted in the promix HP inert medium that I should water it with nutrients at seedling or 1/4 strength. Can anyone let me know their thoughts and experience on this point?
In terms of transplanting, after about 14 days in the solo cup, I’ll get that done. I had read it’s important to make sure the medium is moist in the new larger pot so I should water before and right after transplant. Is this accurate and should I water with nutrients right after or just water?
I had also read that before adjusting nutrients, it’s important to do a flush once in veg/bloom. My question here is, once you flush, how soon after do you water again with the new nutrients? Do you treat as you would when watering with nutrients? i.e. wait till it feels dry then water with nutrients? I read this part here to water as needed.
Finally, I know, based on what I’ve read on these forums, that there is no set watering schedule, you do as needed by feeling the medium, but as a rule of thumb for 5 gallon pots, how often have you guys needed to water in your experience?
Here is what I’m using:
