    Cannabis won't grow unless the bottle has half naked lady's and multicolored cartoon character labels on the bottles.

    I just follow the recommended amounts on the label. The nitrogen isn't reduced going into flower. You just add part C mono potassium phosphate. I think the reason I don't have any calcium issues in coco is because the calcium nitrate is used throughout the grow till the end. I do add some epsom salts about week three through week five in flower but only half a teaspoon per gallon. I also add .25 grams per gallon of 95% fulvic acid. I start reducing the nutrient strength around week six and by harvest I'm running 1/4 strength nutrients. I use blumats for irrigating also. It's been working great and it's really easy. Years ago when I was using every other additive like many do I was having the same problems that many end up having. Now all I have is healthy plants with very little work and I'm not wasting my money on a bunch of marketing and products that contain the same stuff I'm using. The guy that started VitaGrow is a master gardener. The big grows in warehouses in Portland Oregon are not using Advanced Nutrients. They're using the same stuff I am and mixing it according to their needs. This is how commercial agriculture feeds the crops that feed America.

    I just mixed a batch so here are the ppm's:

    Water = 80
    Part A Micro Nutrients = 190
    Part B Calcium Nitrate = 350
    Part C Mono Potassium Phosphate= 80

    Total PPM's Veg = 620
    Total PPM's Bloom = 700


    41 days into flower:

    Yes, like this!

    Take control over the nutrients you are putting in!

    Have you tried running the ppm’s higher?
    Do you run that mix for every watering ? Or once or twice a week n straight water in between?

    I run AN and the price is out to lunch
    I’m looking for a change, and there full setup is less then some of the 1 ltr bottles I have . And taking there advice after a phone call, hurt me bad.
    “You need to stop with the ppm, n ph meters n run it as the bottles say.”
    I should have only done it on a % of the crop, but didn’t as it a lot of work making up a bunch of different feed. I would like something simple, but don’t want to lose yield, etc
    I will say Advanced does have the best ph down I’ve ever used, n have tried a lot.

    I don't water. I fill a reservoir with nutrient solution and the blumats take care of the rest constantly feeding and keeping the coco at the right moisture level. I've ran the PPM's higher but didn't see any difference except problems from over fertilization. As for PH down, I use VitaGrow PH down. It's just phosphoric acid and works great. I buy it by the gallon. It's only $20. And the good thing is that American Agriculture that puts it out is just a couple miles down the road from me. The guy that initially started VitaGrow has apparently moved on to other things but he's the guy behind Flying Skull plant products They make NukeEm for bugs and have a full line of nutrients and additives like CalMag and other stuff. They also have a line of good soil as well.

    How high do you run your ec when using blumats?

    xtsho Well-Known Member

    I'm using a Hanna meter so 700 ppm's = 1.4 EC

    Corn sprout tea a good choice?

    xtsho Well-Known Member

    Sprout tea. Interesting.
    I looked it up and have found it to be rather interesting. I'm going to be experimenting with organic coco growing and sprout tea is something I'll likely be incorporating.

    I have read to use Rye seed during veg and corn during flower. I cant remember why really. I will be using SST on my next indoor grows
