I prefer to hit from all sides when I have an issue.

Take half a plant and spray it with a foliar K and the other half not, let us all know what happens.

Great test!

agreed, the foliar will be super happy - but once flowering then options change - attack from all sides, for sure

Slow, Have you ever used this product

does improving soil require that you do per acre, or can you do it per plant zone ?

Acre, cubic yard, cubic foot, what ever numbers you need to make are within your reach. It is just math and obviously what to do with it. Take a read!

Cause it is less than 2% of my bases. Lots of folks call me Mr. Calcium hahaha, it isn't that I have a love affair with Ca. The issue is this works! As you have seen.

You can aim for 3.5% K to start and push to 6-8%. Just make sure you are always dominating Na.

This also shows the reason what the base distributions aren't negotiable. If you leave space by not having high enough Ca, lots of things can get out of whack fast!

Given you have been making real progress, would you mind telling us all how things have been going? Yield? Quality?
Stellar. The last run in this bed was 11 different varieties out of 18 total plants...I am not a mono-cropper... 1.28 gpw or 2.86 lbs/1k in a 2400 watt bed... 6.8 lbs from a 9x4 space.

Terps have gone up, shelf life has increased and density is through the roof... and this is still without getting the K close...

The real shining star here will be outdoors... Since Slow is giving me shit about wasting electricity...

1/4" ID inserted directly into 1/2 main line. If any type of barb or connector is used on .250 you lose 40% of your volume. Not using connections makes it less costly and allows me to push big particles through without blockage.

Truth be told, I have a 35 gallon res, 400 gph pump/timer on micro sprinklers for H20 and an 18 gallon res with 400 gph pump for feeds. This is how I do it for each 9x4 bed. If I have 10 beds in a room, the H20 will all be combined into 1 large watering system. The feed side will still stay separate for each bed. I can dial feeding for each strain by doing this.

I will do so. I currently have plants vegging in this mix.

I have already made additions to this soil, I will post what I did later today.

5-10ml per gallon? I use .4 tsp per gallon or 2ml per gallon. I think Avenger recommended those rates....... Maybe I will bump it up and see what happens.
