Hey everyone! So update on my girls week 2 flower. I vegged these girls for 6 weeks in 7 gallon fox farm happy frog mix using no nutrients till flowering stage. I’m now using the schedule for general hydro using base nutes with liquid kool bloom calmg and hydroguard. Since last I’ve into some issues I think ph and cal mg problems. I feed the girls, then next day ph’d h20 with hydroguard and calmg, then hydroguard calmg again then feed. Take a look at the pics and tell me what you think. Also I took super lemon haze out of the tent and put it with the other critical. Critical went through some problems with spilling ph down on her. She is looking a lot better and both are flowering in a 4 by 4 with more room for everyone now. Have a great week!

    These are in soil. What is the Hydroguard for? Are you Phing your feedings with your bade nutrients too? If not, you should Ph everything before it is put into your pot. Your ph should not go below 6.0 or above 7. Preferably 6.3-6.7. I think the hydroguard is what threw chubby off on your Ph. You should also be using the nutrient chart for drain to waist. Not the one for hydroponics.

      I wouldn’t bother with the Hydroguard in soil, i think all it’s doing for you is raising the ph level. JM has good recommendations for your roots, so far I am liking the recharge he recommended and I grow in coco

      Thanks just me and screwstick. I will cut out the hydro guard and flux the ph from 6.3-6.7. I can’t wait to see these girls in another couple weeks. I’ll keep you guys posted in another week or two

      A teaspoon is 5ml. That is more than I ever use until my FloraBloom in late flower but you will get it dialed in my friend. Just stick with it. You should be using more than a tsp if Calmag and 1/2 teaspoon of the base nutrients imo. You should go to www....  more

      You will be surprised how far a small amount of nutrients go. As long as you never see a nutrient deficiency you are using plenty. Too much nutrients will suppress your quality and yield! You should get you some syringes or other ML measuring utensils to ...  more

    I agree with MW. What are your PH levels when you feed and when you water?

    Get your loupe and make sure you don't have something chewing on your leaves underneath. Hopefully, you don't have mites or other sucking insects...why?...because they suck.

      There is a product from NPK called Mighty that kills spider mites and there eggs and won’t hurt the flowers or you when you smoke it and it doesn’t leave an taste in the smoke. It ain’t cheap but it works. There are other ways to kill the mites in flower ...  more

    What up TH... You are to be congratulated on your early and close inspection of the leaves of these plants. VERY IMPORTANT to find problems early !!! You have early sings of a lockout, due to accumulation nutes, or an outta whack PH level in your sub. Water only a couple of  PH'ed irrigations, then check run off for PPM levels and PH. In early flower stay under 1000 ppm's and PH between 5.8 and 6.2 . Peace out Holmes

    Calcium deficiency...don't know of anything that locks Calcium out...but used in too large of doses it can lock out other nutrients...cut off using hydroguard...keep your Ph between 6.0-7.0...bounce it around a bit...as JM pointed out, make sure you are following drain to waste schedule...and I would let them dry out a little in between water/feedings...shouldn't need to water everyday using soil...  :)

      In my #7 pots at almost 2 weeks after flip I am only watering my plants once every 5 days. Of course, I will water more often as they get bigger. I was just watering once a week until about 3 weeks ago. I do soak all the soil when watering though. I try t...  more

      Plants have a problem taking up the nitrogen in Calmag along with high levels of phosphorous and potassium from my past experience. I don’t know about anything locking out the calcium though.

      Will always help more than anything else Ihave found. It also widens the plants Ph gap so that the plant can take up needed elements at a different range than is normally there.

      Yep only the cleanest smoke goes into my lungs these days, lol. I smoked cigarettes for for over 30 years before I quit. If my weed was covered with 7 dust from the 70s it would still be better for me than big tobacco pits in cigarettes

    Hey Healer, nice looking grow! The one comment I have is about Hydroguard. I know you said you're stopping it, which makes sense in soil. But, you said: 1tsp hydroguard. Is that a typo? That is too high according to the bottle. The bottle says either 1 or 2 ml per gallon, I can't remember offhand but it's way lower than 1 TSP (5 ml). So, you were at least doubling the Hydroguard dose, unless that is a typo. Something to keep in mind if you go back to Hydroguard for a hydro or coco run.

      The GH Flora Series nutrients are recommended at a heavy feeding of FloraMicro at 4ml and the FloraGro is never over 5. I never use half that much unless I get a hungrier plant that starts to show deficiencies.

      You really need some ml measuring utensils to use your nutrients correctly. 1ml makes a big difference. You can’t measure one ml in a teaspoon. You can buy syringes for less than a buck each. I have some that go to 100ml I got from the feed store for only...  more
