    don't foliar feed on cheap bastard i'm broke program
    once a week old well diluted pee and compost tea

    if i can finfd it alaska mor bloom during flower twice a week

    will be getting fox farm nutes soon as and on 2nd or 3rd use of
    same dirt and 2nd reveg most plants will add old leaves and more compost if a thaw comes soon so i can dig outside and roast the stuff in a metal pan in the oven [ kills most bug larva and weed seeds in yard dirt] swedish studies on pee recycling show pee can replace 80% of mineral fertilizers and competitive costs for food farmers...... compost teais a great organic also

    Re: What are you feeding your plants?

    1000w mh veg
    2k watt hps flwrg

    waterfarms/top drip

    co2

    tap water ph adjusted

    was using gh, have switched to BOTANICARE: POWER GROW AND BLOOM, liquid karma, cal mag. Hygrozyme.

    last grow BLUEBERRY USING GH SERIES: however, doing everthing i thought was right, the plants developed nicely, bloomed, but it wsa prolonged, took about 12 weeks to close to maturity, this aint right, but had HUUUUUGE colas. Started having problems, mites, mold.

    Had to take em down last night, the bud seems unpotent, smells like wet alfalfa, and very very unhappy. Wish i knew what to do! Have to run BB again , but will probably switch strains next time, just to sensitive and vulnerable.

    I had mold even at 37% humidity.
    well ventilated or so I thought!

    Re: What are you feeding your plants?

    (3) 600 watt Hortilux Super HPS on digital Lumatek Ballasts
    (1) 400 watt Hortilux Super HPS on Magnetic Ballast
    (1) 400 watt MH on Magnetic Ballast (for my mothers)

    All 4 HPS lights are in the flowering room and are vented together using a 600CFM fan to pull air in from outside through the lights and out into the basement.

    *Using the Cap Ebb & Gro Hydroponic System
    *Using Ph adjusted Tap water (85 PPM)
    *Pot sizes are 2 gallon
    *Using a Carbon Can filter 100 with a 835 CFM fan which recirculates the air within the room.
    *Using Flora series Tri pack Micro/Gro/Bloom ( I follow the feeding chart)
    *I use diamond nectar at 1/2 strength because it's so UNconcentrated!
    *I use floralicioius Plus throughout the grow
    *I start Liquid Kool Bloom 2 weeks into flowering
    *I replace my nutrients every week
    *I flush my plants 1 week at the end of the grow.

    Northern Lights
    25% perlite

    I use this mixture for every watering, and it doesn't seem to cause nute burn except for in young plants

    ^ Lookin good bud.

    Consider adding 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of epsom salt to your water or going with some cal-mag. Looks like a touch of magnesium deficiency. A little epsom and those tops will darken up.

    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity, but don't rule out malice.

    We are a culture fully immersed in the ideology that truth is what we see and what we hear. Yet we hire lawyers to manipulate truth, we hire PR and marketing firms to create truth, and we hire investigators and private detectives to uncover truth. The problem to which I am affected every day is truth in the cannabis industry.
