    I recently changed my grow set up. I have 12 1000W HPS DE lights, 26 15 gallon pots, 55 gallon reservoir, and a halo irrigation system drain to waste. I have 18 Skywalker and 8 Black eyed Katy plants. My medium is 20% chunky perlite on bottom and Royal Gold Tupur(coco blend) on top. I am using advanced nutrients connoisseur line with expert level additives. I just started week 4 of flowering. I have been using the whole 55 gallons split into 3 separate watering per day. This was recommended by a friend with a similar setup.The plants look good, but I am running through nutrients like crazy! As everyone knows advanced nutrients are pricey. My pots are always heavy. My question is: can I get away with watering less?

    Try it. You are growing 26 plants. In 15 gallon containers. They are going to use a lot of nutes. Maybe try a different brand of nutes. Maybe try twice a day. If there are no Ill effects, try once a day. Your setup screams lots of nutes and medium. Play big, spend big.

    If your worried about cost try jacks it works great with Coco it's super cheap and with my tap water I don't have to adjust the pH at all

    Ryante55, thanks for the recommendation. Its more about getting the best yield and quality possible. I just cant find many people watering that much.

    How much runoff are you going through? 15 gal is a big container, i would think it'd take a bit for the plants to drink that much. How long are you vegging for?

    Smaller pots in coco is a good idea. I bet you could water those every 3 days or so and that would be plenty. I use tupar also btw. I run 5 gallon pots with 4 week veg. By mid flower I water twice a day.

    Lol tupur was meant to be used in systems with multiple feeds a day.

    Should have done more research
