I just read through some posts that this would be usefull.
Sticky it mods
Sticky for sure, just solved my current problem. Most leaf info is spread out over many book pages and many posts. This is very compact, very useful to someone like me with a short attention span and quite possibly a little high.
Kudos!

I haven't done clones yet, just seed, but I'm pretty sure you should give them 1/2 strength base nutrients.
