Yeah I have some of that tomorite stuff if really high in N ain’t it? I used to much of that on my last attempt and gave my glue gelato nitrogen toxicity lol that’s why I switched to bio bizz and canna but I finished my last ones with bio bizz I really rate that stuff too
Fish mix for veg and bloom and top max for flower
I really dilute it down as there is no virtue in over feeding that I can see.
The run off from my grow goes into my tomato plants and peppers and they love the second hand Canna and I love smoking and eating them; In my humble opinion pot loves a companion when its growing.
Wicked I may have to try that! Might plant some peppers and chillis myself
You can use the higher nitrogen nutes in the vegging stage, but in flowering its gonna be the lowest of your three (N,P,K). You get that phosphorus and potassium up in flowering. I am gonna use Jack’s on my next grow. I’ll be sure to let you all know if it rocks or if it flops.
Tonight I am pan frying Scallops in homegrown basil in French butter and Spanish Garlic, Basil and pot and basil get along very well as the bugs don’t seem to dig the basil aroma.
Growing companion plants in with pot takes the total focus away from the seedlings and the runoff from pot feeds the companion plants…my Italian tomato’s just keep on giving as would Chillis
I dunno man I don’t think mine are looking too good I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong this time round, kinda stressing me out again
That’s the cherry bomb the American pie sure I’m certain is dead lol it’s all brown
That’s day 8 from sprout
So this is the American pie stil not really grown and looking very strange
And this is the cherry bomb, it started to also go downhill so I switched to bio bizz fish mix and it seems to have perked up a bit over night? So I’m not sure if I was using the canna a+b wrong or it’s the soil that’s bad in the American pies pot Who knows, here’s the cherry bomb anyway, looks a bit better than did a few days ago
Definitely looks better than it did.
Way over watered for the size of plant. Also, may I ask, what soil is that you transplanted into? The seedlings are still tender and are feeding of the cotyledons. Any feed at this time is poison to them. Their roots are super sensitive and just developing. The warping of the leaves and chlorotic color is an indication of wet feet.
I’m in coco and perlite buddy, have been from start I heard a lot of people feed right from the start in coco as it has no natural nutrients, @CoyoteCody the first photo is a different plant btw from the other photos that first one hasn’t really changed in a good few days just got more yellow so I think that ones finished
I think the bio bizz helped with the cherry bomb a little so I feel like it has I’m going starve her for a week or so and start giving light feeds from there on, I also heard just giving straight ph water in coco causes problems?
No I get it, but seriously, the seedling is good for at least 3 sets of leaves before the feed starts. By that time the roots are more durable.
Ahh okay so it okay to feed straight ph water in coco then?
Maybe add a tiny bit of cal mag to it so its not straight water or check your ppms and see what they are just make sure there is somethingin there and its not at like 0-50 ppms, but like I said before when I was using GH I would have to start very slowly on nutes and work my way up, with jacks I can start at full stream from day one.
Yes, but not too much water. Thats the silly part about coco that I dont like. Cannabis is a desert / equatorial plant, it hates wet feet. In Thailand and Laos, the farmers specifically time their crops to miss the monsoon season because it spells the death of cannabis. The ideal place on earth to grow itbis Afghanistan and California. If you look on a satellite image at the latitude most suitable for cannabis its actually around 35 to 40 degrees above or below the equator. Where I live its 50 degrees above, its kinda outta the goldilocks zone… season too short, shoulders too wet and cold. We make it work but its not ideal.
Anyways, Im not a huge fan of coco… some folks do fantastic with it. And yes it likes that constant moistness… but I think a plant needs a bit of maturity to handle that. And once the feeding starts it needs to be consistent. I think @dbrn is a coco enthusiast?
Yeah thats important! The cal mag is your friend for sure with coco, however, some cal mag has N in it, and personally a seedling isnt hungry for that yet.
The cal mag I have been using is the canna brand, as I bought it to officially use with the canna a+b but I believe it hasn’t done then any favours lol so I think I’ll stick with the bio bizz for now see how goes but I may go back to using compost if I’m going to be honest lol, I had no problems really apart from at the beginning with the compost and I think I know what I did wrong there
