I need advice;
Do I need to wait for my plant to have 5 sets of leaves before growing in the hydroponic pot ? If not, how can I tell when it’s ready? I don’t have b-52 . The only root starter that I have is miracle grow and I’m not sure if that would work.
I need advice;
@Countryboyjvd1971 please help !
Should my plant have 5 full set of leaves before placing in the hydroponic system? Also adding nutrients ? Any advice is greatly appreciated
What kind of hydro you using? I plant mine rockwool and once I see a root it goes into a bubble cloner for 1 or 2 weeks then into a netpot on a 5 gal bucket with 2.5 gal nutrients in it " roots will be in water from growing in the bubble cloner
@boardsbird I have 5 gallon hydro pots. The three plants that I have were started in jiffy pots. They took root in them. I have rock wool but never used them. I’m curious as to just letting these grow in soil and maybe starting 2 in rock wool ? I didn’t know if I pulled these out of the soil to place them in their hydroponic pots if it would make a difference since they’re hardened off ?
I usually transplant them to hydro once I see the starter leaves starting to yellow or if they are too big for my starter tray and dome. That way you can start with a light feed and get those roots growing for you’re final bucket.
You probably can just put the jiffies into hydroton for the bucket top net-pots. I only use 3 gals " Net pots are 1" or 2" off water" in the 5 gal bucket and let the bubbler splash the hydroton to water the plant, moving to 2.5 gals of nutrients on first nute change
@boardsbird @Noctis420 thanks for the advice. I’m set up for it . I thought of growing a couple outside and a couple inside in order to see and feel the difference. Can you suggest any nutrients for root growth ? Thanks again !
If you’re using advanced nutrients use voodoo juice, piranha and trantula. All are to help boost root growth. I use those for the 1st and 2nd week of veg and 1st and 2nd week flower. They do work well because the roots on my plants are pretty big! @JBC13
@Noctis420 thanks for the info on the root stimulator. I been to reader some. It seems I have everything else lol !
Oh no haha. I buy the 250ml bottles. They arẻ cheapest and will last a while since you don’t need very much of them. @JBC13
Also @JBC13 don’t feed for at least two weeks unless you see the cotyledon start to yellow and use the smallest spoon on you’re measuring tool. Hope this helps happy growing.
Ya if I have problems its feeding them to soon " I just cant help myself" I have two in my bubble cloner right now being over fed and trying to die"
@Noctis420 what is the yellowing your speaking of ? First time grower, although I do enjoy burnin.
It’s the plants starter leaves. They feed on them for about 2 weeks then they turn yellow and die. Here is a pic of what I’m talking about inside the red circle.
@Noctis420 I’m grateful for you teaching me as I grow. When are nutrients added ? Ph perfect micro, bloom and grow ? I also order ph perfect tranatula and voodoo juice. Will these be alright to add? Today I’m soaking 2 seeds and I’ll start them in rock wool. Still debating on going from soil to hydro. Do you think it would help yield? Thanks again
Btw: gorgeous plants ya got there ️ !!
Hey thanks @JBC13 I work hard to to keep my ladies happy. So after two weeks mix all of those together. Micro, grow, and bloom, trantula and voodoo juice. Start with 1/4 tsp of each nutrient. I can’t stress this enough you want to start as weak as possible and don’t feed for 2 weeks unless you see those leaves dying. This stuff is pretty strong so start small. As for soil vs hydro I could not really tell you. I have not done soil yet. The plants grow faster in hydro though. I suppose it depends on how you treat your plant. Such as topping, fimming, LST. Wish I could help you more on that subject. I might try soil soon if I can get some without bugs in it. @JBC13
Oh I do recommend getting piranha too if you can.
If you dare i would got hydro, both plants mid tent are White Widow autos at 47 days
Nice looking plant you got there! I just started my second ever auto and it’s white widow haha @boardsbird
@Noctis420 I have an important question:
This morning I sprayed all 3 with been oil. One plant had tiny holes from som critter. Afterward I watered them. I brought one in and put it under the full spectrum light. The other 2 I placed in full sun. I just checked them and it looks like the leaves a curling inward. What could this be?? I brought them in and placed them under the light. Should I put them in the shade or have I killed them, sigh ?
