    I'll help, but my condition is that you learn Hydro Buddy or another nute calc so you can crunch your own numbers because right off the bat, you're going to want to look at many different combinations of this and that and I refuse to be someone's crutch. So if you learn to use a nute calculator, I will share my experiences in greater detail.

    not a problem sky i wana learn it its 1 of my main goals in life, haha i wont let it win me, kids and life distracted me for getting back into learning it and being comfortable with advanced,,,too comfortable,,,i found it last year and tryed to play the game its been on ma pc ever since . am going thru ur guide and some vids i got to try get it working,
    where i get lost is on creating elements that don't exist, for example on my advanced nutes it has elements that arnt displayed so i have to create a custom to add, how does it know how to calculate and how does it know how the element behaves from just me naming it? i feel like i added a name and random number that could be anything there, but i managed to get half the nutes added and thought id see where its at , but it says an element cant be empty that advanced nutes doesn't have so i set it to 0 cause it wouldn't allow me to use it blank and it tels me it can be set to 0 .
    im gona read ur guide see if its in there lol not alot of vids to look at on the subject lol when i figure it, im gona make a vid once i master it cause this is madness but i love it haha, buf i i could help others in my novice great.

    ive tryed some phone npk apps and my god there lacking buttons or something cause ya cant change numbers haha.
    i wouldn't want a crutch, i may be new to getting my head around not using anything but im starting to understand it its like unschooling hehe but ive been growing 15yrs and what got me back here is i never had results like i had on ghe lucas,
    but i knew ghe lucas also missed a few things ,and wondered how i could make these 2 bottles myself.

    i just don't want to do a side by side staring ur nutes and get bad results due to my own error so to have you stick ur head in and say oi pond u daft stick that elements was menat to be half that id appreciate it, id want it be spot on , problem with me i guess i want perfection in every way which isnt always achievable
    and again i wouldnt want to document it without your permission as its info sourced from your effort,and that more and more reading i do through your thread is leading me to really like and accept your view on cannabis science
    as a more realistic view to that what ive been lead to believe and it doesnt end with me buying the next booster but rather that i already had it in the mix woo
    Hi there Skybound

    I read your threads pretty closely a few months ago as I wanted to prepare my own nutrient solutions but ultimately decided to go with straight MEGA CROP based on your recommendation. But now that they have released an A + B formula I've regained interested and plan on doing what you did with using Jack's 321 as your base.

    I was hoping I could pick your brain on that subject, would you mind starting a conversation with me? i don't think I'm able to with my new account - I keep getting an error.

    All of those chelates are themselves organic acids and will feed mold spores in the jug, which is why it's very important to add the preservative right away.

    I did some testing and it looks like it was the amino acids that was the issue.

    I'm guessing your medium mix acts more like soil where you don't have to water every day and have no need for reservoirs? Because I've found that the amino acid addition takes a day or so to start propagating bacteria.

    I now use peat/perlite, but a year ago I was using rockwool croutons and maintained a 10 gal reservoir under each bloom plant. Just use less than what's recommended, same with the other organic acids.
    What's going on my skyboundhighbound homie!!! What you growing lately ? You doing good???
    I was wondering if you ever got your nutrient ppms in order. I just read 14 pages on your thread and I'm literally going threw the exact same train of thought you did. I just almost ordered MOST from Jack's. I stumbled across your thread. Any findings you found or tweaks in your recipes ppms I'd love to hear about. It would definitely save me alot of time.

    I spent a LOT of time in chapter 5 learning how the elements express deficiency/toxicity, plus also how they compete etc.
    Hello Sky, hope you don't mind me messaging you. I am just starting Cap'n style and would really appreciate some advice, just basic stuff.
    I have an 8 pot recirculating system 200 litres (an old rdwc system I have converted). What kind of ec levels would you feed in this system. I use GH 3 part, silica, cal/mag and a root stimulant early on. Final pot size is 20 litres with clay in the bottom then the rockwool cubes. Feeding 2 x per day for 20 minutes.

    I did try this my last grow but the roots grew out of the bottom and into the solution, so it was a hybrid and didn't work out so well, probably due to under feeding @ 1.1 ec excluding 0.2 background. I will probably go sterile rather than live, just find it easier and have had rot with beneficials.
    Any advice at all would be much appreciated.

    If you're going sterile, you might as well start by not holding yourself to what is or isn't Capn style because I shit you not, step one is using beneficial bacteria, lol. I have no problem with sterile, but it's my experience and study that more root problems can come from sterile than live, but this doesn't imply that live is fool proof.

    Irregardless of the medium, I highly recommend ditching the GH and order Megacrop. It's a dry nutrient that's formulated for cannabis. If you reach out to them, they will send you a half kilo sample if you pay for shipping. You can use up your silica and calmag with the megacrop too, but after I ditched GH years back, I began making my own nutes from salts (link in signature) and now am growing my very last Capn style plant in bloom and am switching to soil.

    That aside though, if you're doing your version of Capn style, then I assume you've done plenty of reading so why waste time rewring what he alrerady wrote and you already read? So if you have a question, I'll do my best to answer.
