What nutrient level is best for perpetual vegging of a mother plant?

I’m putting a Grand Daddy Purp clone into its own tent to become a mother plant for successive grows. The clone is currently in the “late veg” phase of the General Hydroponics 6-part feed chart. Should I simply recreate its current environment or should I slow down the growth by decreasing the nutrient levels? Same question regarding the light intensity. The plant is in a recirculating deep water culture and will be in a 2x4 tent with an HLG 300 Rspec light. Thanks in advance! @dbrn32 @Myfriendis410 @Covertgrower @latewood

It’s a long read but in it he talks about mother plants and how to keep them small & alive.

Imo, a pot of soil or Peat would be better option for keeping mom over longer period of time. It’s gonna grow pretty fast in rdwc system. Cutting back on nutrients too much will probably make it nutrient deficient. May slow it down some, but then you’ll have other issues to contend with as well. Seems like jamming her up in small pot witj lower light intensity and blue heavy spectrum would be easier to do.

So far this has worked amazing for me. I’m a new grower. Also a soil grower. And I didn’t start feeding until week 3. Also I only have the base nutrients. But if you have the others, go for it.

What? I have been up working on projects and i cjecked in and saw this. LOL

What are attempting to ocnvey? Love your fervor.

I’m sorry I don’t understand what you are saying?

OK. I guess what i am trying to convey is that the scheduleyou posted makes no sense. You claim to be a new grower, and want advce, so what are you asking for as far as guidance?

Oh ok. Now I understand. It’s funny that you say it makes no sense. How did you come to that conclusion? Yes I am a new grower. Yes I use general hydroponics flora grow trio. Yes I’m Currently in week 10 of my first grow. Yes all of my plants look amazing. Yes that’s the schedule I use. Now Mr. Certified Grower, what doesn’t make any sense???
(FYI the person asked what nutrient level is best for vegging) they also mention GH.
Did I step on your toes by answering the question?
And if it makes no sense, plz tell me what my beautiful plants are doing wrong at 71 days old. Oh WW AUTO. Mr certified grower.

I use Jacks 321 on my clone mothers with a water/feed/water cycle, so on feed day they get around 950ppm then next is RO water only at about 7ppm. Would be comparable to giving them 475ppm every watering. Keeps them from growing too fast or getting deficiencies, along with lower light levels and keeping them trimmed down.

This all day. Also why I don’t use coco for my clone mothers, want slow growth and less watering needs.

Here you go. I amn sorry that my query to your line after line escription makes no sense to me. hwew is ny take on GH 3-part which ahd 70,000 + views on Cannabis dorcom until it got shutdown. And; I will never bother you again.

Because it doesn’t make sense to you. Doesn’t mean it don’t make sense. From YouTube to this Forum I’ve seen many different GH GROW RATIOS. To think that yours and yours alone is the right one, your confidence level must be on dictator. I can only speak on what I use and what’s worked for me so far. One thing you can’t argue with is results. Thank you for doing us both a favor . God bless and enjoy your day. One more thing. 70k views ooooooooooooooooooooo.:roll_eyes:

I have no idea why you are being so confrontational. You say you are a beginner and I was trtying to help everyone make sense of your schedule. I never insulted you. Good luck. Happy growing. LOL
