      Laylow - Hey man, howzit going? Yeah I'm loving the growth rate, I think it's down to the extra feeding. I started feeding them at 1.0EC and I've worked it up to 1.4EC today, I'll see how they like the 1.4EC this week, so far there are zero sign's of overfeeding, the leaves are getting a nice deep green, I don't want them to get any greener, here's a few snaps of plant's that I run last year that had too much nitrogen, notice how green the leaves are, they are glossy. BIG mistake on my part, the plant was putting the majority of it's energy into making leaf, that's why I'm keeping a constant close eye on this run.

      Too much nitrogen...

        im actually laid up ill at the mo other than that im all good lol....

        on the nitrogen front what ferts are you using? also whats your ph if i want more nitrogen i run it 6.2 and then drop it to 6 first 2 weeks of flower then 5.8 the rest of flower

        or if its a grow i dont get to much I.E. at a friends place or if im just being lazy i keep it at 5.8 the whole way through...

        ive been watering everyday in these airpots and its a pain in the ass im just wondering now if im hindering my plants buy not giving them enough water

        my nutrient regime is quite expensive as every water i use 150L of water out of a 300L BUTT... maybe if i was to give them full strength nutes on the first feed fill the water butt back up with water adjusting the ph then use that 300L for the next 2 days and just start over....

        i dunno at this rate changing to airpots is costing me more in coco outlay for the airpots and now twice as much food wise.....

          IMHO your better off giving more feeds of less strength .... coco goes hydro ... it flushes the salts out too

            LL....Smartpots/airpots/any breathable rootzones with coco , are gonna dry out faster and require more feedings/watering for accelerated root/foliage "hydro-like" growth......but.....

            Lower ppm`s fed more regularly as said above will help create balance and cost less across the board on nutrients.....

            Look into "maxibloom" dry with cal/mag supplements for bout the cheapest "Lucas formula" nutrient regimen for coco if juice is too much a part of your budget , but I ran GH 3 part for many yrs so I could drop the Grow completely and dial down the Micro once stretch was over ta keep those deep green glossy leaves HGO shows from happenin during swellage mode.....

            Maxibloom`s not ableta be dialed down individually except ppm`s wise , so there`s always tradeoff`s.....

            HGO`s runnin 700 ppm`s thereabout`s is par for the course runnin lower juice through coco constantly ftw.....

            Lookin good HGO....Thanks fer tha show....

            Peace....DHF.......

                Laylow - I'm using Plant Magic coco range, I've just been giving them the a & b, and some rhizotonic. I've been keeping the PH at a dead 6.0. They are feeding nicely, I'm loving the extra feeding, they are getting 1 feeding 2 hour's after light's on, 2 hour's before light's off and one in between. Still they look like they have slightly too much nitrogen, well they will have good reserves for when start stretching. I'll not be upping the A&B anymore.

                You can see from this pic of cheese, taken a week ago that they were a bit hungry for nitrogen..



                And if you look at this pic taken 6 day's later, you can see that they have a good bit of nitrogen in stock for the flower stretch coming next week. The leaves are almost going glossy again, I have 2 choices, either cut back on one watering per day or cut down the EC, I think I'll cut down the EC because I like the extra feedings each day especially for when it comes to flower time, and my humidity is crap so it helps out there a little too.



                I hear ya on the airpots, I didn't like them at all. I'm sure that the smart pot's are much better. Maybe if you put hydroton at the base and over the top of your coco you would cut down a little on evaporation? It would definitely help.


                Bush Dr - I think your right, they also seem to love it.

                DHF - Thanks man! Good post! At what stage do you drop your grow? I'm going to drop mine a little more. The plant's are very well fed at the moment

                megayields - Thanks! Yeah they were damn leafy, huh What do you make of the white mustang?

                      Good work HuGO (see what i did there?)... setup looks wicked, and so do the plants. For the first time I think I have considered coco and realised that I am going to do it rather than I might do it.

                      What sort of coco do you use? Is the plant magic available in the rep or do you have to order it online?

                          nice garden!

                          other options:
                          * hand watering to eliminate hoses
                          * sealing the bottom catch tray so that run-off is used by the plants, and not wasted
                          * placing wheels onto the bottom catch (wooden tray build), and cutting off corners to make an octogon-or circular-shaped tray, so that it can be spun around. this will give you access to the all of the plants all of the tyme, w/out restricted access to the far corners
                          * lowering one of the lites, so that they become staggered and off-set. this will provide greater overall coverage & make it so they dont shine in to ea other. plants like different angles of lite....

                          2cents

                            laylow - I think you should give it a go, once you see the growth rate you'll be sold.

                            STUPPA - Hi mate, welcome. I loved your cheese grow, read it twice TBH I can't smell a thing in the growroom, the large filter takes care of any smell. I can't wait to see how they do in flower, I've been looking to grow cheese for ages now. Do you know the lineage of the suicide cheese cut? I think I remember reading that it was the Exodus Cheese x Afghan, is that right? I've lost track with all the X's. Hope you stay around for the finish man.

                            Hell9 -
                            Hey man good to see you here, I'm using canna coco this round with 20% perlite and I've got clay balls (hydroton) at the base of my 6.5Ltr pots for drainage. You really should convert over, once you see the results you won't go near soil again IMO, I know I won't, I'll keep my mother plants in soil but that is it. And yes I seen what you did there, Snypette showed me that last year lol.

                            *mistress*
                            - Feel free to throw your 0.2 in this thread anytime. I could give them the run off again but Bush Dr advised me not to and I'm seeing such good results this way. But yes it can be hard to throw all them nutes down the drain.

                            Stand by for some brilliant updates all, just getting my post made now. Wait to you see how much they are growing!

                              Vertical Coco FTW!!

                              Ok folks it's been a very busy week for me and I only got up to the grow today. They are still getting 3 feeds a day and the EC has been put up to 1.4EC, well they are LOVING it. I was a bit weary at first but they are taking it all and not giving any signs of nute burn so I'm happy. I reckon I could put the EC up to 1.7EC but I'd have far too much leaf come flower.

                              Today is their last day of Veg so I thought it would be good to take a few snaps of their progress. They are EXPLODING in growth.

                              Again here are some comparison pictures...

                              ...........5 Days ago............Today



                              You can see how much they have grown in 5 day's, they are without any doubt the fastest growing plants that I've done. I'm going to give them a good trim tomorrow, they are very leafy. Fuck I can't wait to see what size they are when the flower stretch is over

                              Temps and humidity are perfect, the humidity has went up from 35-45% to now a nice 65%.



                              ON TO THE CHEESE , again here are some comparison pics for you to study....

                              Now for all you root freaks out there, take a seat away from the Mrs because I have some damn hot ROOT PORN here for ye!

                              4 weeks root growth in 6.5Ltr pots...



                              What do ya think of that? I don't know about you but I'm amazed, never had roots like that before in all my years of growing.

                              And here are some more random pics of the grow for you all...



                              That concludes another update, thank you all that have commented, I love to hear your opinions.

                              Viva La Coco! And Viva la Vertical!
