Top-feed Hydroponics with Bushmaster


New Member
After using ebb and flow successfully, I switched to top feed to cut down on the mess when using rocks in the trays. I HATE the clean up. I tried using soil, but the mess of dirt and having to water manually just got to me.

So, top feed using deposible material is my next attempt.

I started 10 bagseeds from a couple of friend who had some really good weed.

I took clones from the plants to determine the sex. This is a very long final dirt crop. The next time I use dirt, it will be outdoors.

Plants: Bagseeds from some really good dope

Planting method: Top feed hydroponics

Nutrients: GH 3-part with Humboldt Bushmaster to control plant height. I also will add FoxFarm Open Sesame and Seastie Bloomz.

Lights: 400w HPS

Water: r/o DI water with a TDS of 1ppm. I will suppliment with Cal-Mg.process, but I had time since the flowering room was busy with my 1st dirt crop

pH = 5.6 - 6.0

Feed pump runs 4X a day when the lights are on for 15 mins

PPM = start with 780ppm and will increase to 2000ppm within 2 weeks of 12/12


I ran Bushmaster for 4 days. 16ml in 10 gallons of R/O water. The plants are budding, but very very short. I think next time I will veg until the plants are 12" tall. I started the plants at 6" tall.

The leave on a couple are deformed. I will post pics later.
How did this grow turn out?
We would love to be updated with some pictures and info!

I am moving this to abandoned journals until we get updates.

Thanks and hope all is well in your world!

Love and respect from all of us here at 420 Magazine!
Could have been a good grow. Probably trashed due to misuse of Bushmaster. I don't know who would grow six 6 inch plants under a 400 watt light /:
