That brain can be a real problem! I am going through issues with mine too, and it's not even that big!A nutrient supplier that has an accurate calculator that you don't have to cut in half to start with? Am I taking crazy pills?
Well, crap. I'm on the fence for this really hard. I have about a 2 week window before my new build will be ready. I have enough of the GH Trio to get about halfway through a full grow, but I'm really, really tempted by the MC. Seeing @West Hippie and his hydro results are what is really throwing me to the wolves.
The GH stuff I have on hand is:
- Flora Series Trio (Flora Gro/Bloom/Micro)
- Floralicious Plus
- Liquid KoolBloom
- Rapid Start
I would hate for it to go to waste, but I will need to pick up another quart each of the base nutes for the full grow. I'm down to just over a pint I'm guessing, and a full grow in the new system (going by half their chart, and previous use notes) should run me about a quart of each, just over maybe. Of course that's an average grow of 4 weeks in veg, a transition week or two, and then about 9 weeks in flower. Just a tick over half of a quart bottle of each.
So the short of that is a quart of each runs about $35, give or take. Then I'm still buying nutes for the run after that anyway. So where the fence comes in is do I stick with what I know, or go for it and be set for a couple grows with MC.
Damn it, brain. Knock it off!
The one part system, that would free me from 11 bottles got me very interested. Mega Crop costing less than just the Flora Bloom for a grow was the final nail in General Hydroponics' coffin for me.That brain can be a real problem! I am going through issues with mine too, and it's not even that big!
Mine are starting week 4 as well - we can run the race together!Just got my free 500g bag of Mega Crop. Been using Advance Nutrients entire grow but I think I will just try this from here on out for my grow. Starting week 4 of flowering tomorrow and i will need to water my plants once again. Be interesting to see if the bud sites just start blowing up once I switch things over. If it works like I’m hoping it will. Then I will be ordering that 33lbs bag off amazon as a nice Xmas gift for myself
Question about foxtailing...
My experience is the trichs don't turn amber and you have to use your judgement and the breeder's flowering time. Mine was well within the breeders window and you can see lots of fade too.Lots of folks seem to be turned off by it cause it looks weird? Do y'all always harvest it when you see it or do you still wait for trichomes to be the level of cloudy/clear/amber you are going for?
A staggered harvest is a great idea to find out the best time to harvest a strain for yourself. I like more amber in my nighttime meds. Others prefer a speedier high that doesn't put them to sleep. It's always best to go by the trichomes. The timing can vary due to changes in the environment between grows.Speaking of trichomes... Has anyone tried harvesting an indica(hybrid) early (low or no cloudy tric's) to see if the body high switches to a head high? Conversely if you wait for any strain of indica or sativa until all cloudy and lots of amber, will it almostalways be a mostly couchlock high regardless?
I'm way to new ay this to have any experience in that, but in all the reading I've been doing, it seems a worthwhile experiment. I'm going to be cobbing a good proportion of my crop also, probably taking an early cola from each girl and a late one (2-3 weeks apart?) to compare the effect.
