@Budbrother that’s good to know. I just started with 12/12 and being I felt there was still nukes in soil I just went by chart at week five without big grow but ill add next time and I have a ppm meter but I’m waiting for a ph pen ive been using drops and a friend gave me a cheap soil meter. But there’s such a big different between the two, I ordered a pen. Should be here by the time next feeding. Cause I do plain water in a couple days. I just have to get a handle on not over watering them
Try bottom feeding or even using a sprayer to water. I use a 1 gal pesticide sprayer. Soak them then give it 5 mins to sink down and do again. Repeat till you start getting runoff. It takes longer to water, but that slow soak does better at controlling the amount.
