    Hopefully someone can help. I started some plants in the only soil available to me at the time which was Black Gold which had time release fertilizer incorporated in it.

    Does PPM runoff after feeding reflect what the plant used in the previous feeding?

    New grower here, in soil. Just chopped down my first plant on Tuesday. I recently got a PPM meter which I find a great tool. Here is my question (let's assume no PPM in the water to make this easier): If I always water in flower with 600 PPM nute solution, and this time the first...

    No sign of sex after 11 weeks of veg growth

    The only thing at the nodes are the stipules. Also, any idea on the amount of water this plant should receive at feeding/watering? I just give it a gallon, and no runoff occurs. The media is just some basic potting soil from Walmart.

    Runoff with soil and chemical vs organic nutrients

    Hi, I am a bit unsure on this, but if you're using chemical nutes, are you still encouraged to do a ~20% runoff as with Coco for example? With this in mind, if I use organic nutes like the Canna line, do I need any runoff at all except for a) just a little to know if I have watered enough...

    How are you dialing in nutrients in your hydro grow?

    I suppose beyond doing a drain to waste and collecting the runoff and sending said runoff to a lab for inspection, how do you perfect your nutrient mix at each stage of growth?
