Ok thanks. I went back thru the thread looking for some sort of monster reference from the seed company and, nothing. Thought I might be losing a step.
Dig the red chili plant in the back!
Hey Farside, greetings. What size buckets are those? 5 gal? How much medium are the plants in? I am contemplating a SIP grow but I have to get my head around logistics and DIY still. I see mention by you of running autos in a SIP setup. Have you done it yet?So I'm attempting a SIP bucket grow and still intrigued with my Summer grow using Osmocote. For those that didn't follow that thread, Osmocote on its own will not get you through a grow. Once you hit bloom, Potassium and Calcium deficiencies will appear. I think I found the level of supplements needed and want to explore further. I'm sitting on 10 gal worth of choice bud from other grows, so what better time to expiriment?
I started some seeds of OGesus and Purple Sunset from @Expert Seedbank , both autos. If you haven't tried Expert's Autos yet, I strongly suggest you give them a shot. Seed prices are great and they have been everything they say they are, potent and big yielders. For this expiriment I started the in Solo cups with 7g of Osmocote. 3 are up so far, still missing one OGesus. Once they are a little bigger I will transplant into their final SIP container.
I'm using ProMix Organic Garden Mix (found at Wally's) as a base. For each compressed bale I added 208g of Osmocote Indoor and Outdoor time released fertilizer. From past experiences I will need to add more Calcium and Potassium when they hit their blooming stage. For that I will use FN Cal-Mag and FN Special. K. Let's see how this turns out. Goal is low maintenance and a full tent.
Thank you Azi. I am following Buds' thread. I have a lot of journals that I keep up with so I very often can't find the specifics when skimming through multiple pages in one sitting. A lot of the SIP journals are at quite an advanced stage so as a total newb it is sometimes easier to ask the dumb questions
Skimming??!?? You do skimming? Tsk, tsk.Thank you Azi. I am following Buds' thread.

I'm sure farside has no problem answering your questions Carmen, once he gets some time to get back here!Apologies. I thought it was the done thing to ask growers questions about their grows, particularly questions that relate to gaining knowledge from their experience. I didn't intend to bog anyone down. I thought my questions were brief and to the point I will move to the SIP CLUB and give these guys a break. Sorry.
