    Thanks for checking it out! My right arm is pretty useless, but I have some little elves to help me for now. I will be sort of functional in another two weeks.

    Checked in here. nice work. Is there such a thing as +rep anymore? I don't see that well-known members can hit the reputation button. Is it somewhere else now or maybe they dont exist?

    I am doing sort of a 10 plant SOG, Basement Mix and Blumats, new cheapish blurple lights in my 4’x4’ tent. The lights work better than often reported and I fried my seedlings with them, nearly to death, but they are finally recovering. Will flip tomorrow, will post pics when it gets interesting. Will set up multiple stages again soon. :bigjoint:

    I do not dig the Basement Mix compared to Tupur. Next run likely to be Blumats in big rockwool cubes, then maybe switching to aeroponics down the road.

    I'm told that it's best to run straight water or salts only through the Blumats.

    Is that what you're doing?

    Yeah, salts only, Jacks Oasis Hydro 16-4-17, MKP, and MgSO4.
    Oasis is a one part hydro fert, You have to keep it nice and dry or it precipitates out pretty fast. I bought a 25lb bag for $80 more than a year ago, so far so good.

    Running about 4 - 3.5 - 6 most of the time. I have tried boosting the MKP in flower in the past, I don’t think it makes a shittin’ bit of difference.

    Interesting choice of mix. It suggests that our favorite plant is really not terribly finicky about its breakfast.

    There’s a reason they call it “weed,” I think.

    Veg;
    2 parts 5-11-26 mix
    2 parts calcium nitrate
    1 part mag sulfate
    Dilute to personal preference.

    Bloom;
    2.5 parts mix
    2 parts calcium nitrate
    1 part mag sulfate
    Again, dilute to personal preference

    I haven't bothered with MKP in quite some time.

    That’s almost painfully simple, I love it. I know you ran MKP when I came to visit, what prompted you to drop it?

    I keep hearing from some grower friends of mine with a North CA background about how driving Phosphorus hard during flower is really important, but I just don’t see it, personally. I have heard some crazy stuff from them, like feeding soil grows at 2500ppm during flower. Their smoke is bomb, but so is yours, and mine, and there’s fucking fire everywhere these days.

    Based on the variety of approaches that are successful I would agree, she ain’t picky.

    I found that my meds weren't any better with it than without.

    Perhaps I wasn't using it optimally, I don't know.

    Well, I am into week two of 12 hour lights, finally.

    I fried my seedlings nearly to death because everyone kept saying how weak the ViparSpectra lights are, turns out they work pretty well. I started 18” off canopy based on some forum posts, but I had to jack them up to the top of the tent. 570 watts is plenty enough, even for blurple. Cheap LED with lenses ain’t all bad. I wish they were all white and red, there’s a lot of blue in the spectrum, but once I got them dialed in the plants got happy pretty quickly.
