Keep up the good work

Thank you man. Yes I've been reading this for a while about the better yields with air and smart pots. I have a "if it's not broke don't fix it" mindset sometimes. But thank you for the feedback. Next run I will bust out the smart pots and give it a whirl.

1.6 1.7 EC. I never feed over 900ppm throughout the whole grow.

Marijuana plants can take high feeds but IMO it's not needed. Nutrients companies capitalized on this, and recommend a blistering feed chart that is most of the time complete overkill.. Still get great yields with half the nutes. Once you get over the 1000 1200 1500ppm and continuously feed that way then you're more likely to have problems arise I believe, and from experience. And I don't flush , i feed with run off all the way till the end. Then taper off slowly the last week so my last two feedings are like 300 200 ppm. Then harvest. Lower EC works better anyway with this multiple feed method. The plant constantly gets food and oxygenated water

try a table , I swear you will change immediately. I did, I was blown away at the difference. I did step up the watering from 2x a day to 5 at end of flower

I do a multifeed in coco and they love it around 250 - 300 PPM. Once I get over 600 watts they get a bit hungrier but not by much.

Flood tables.? Did that for years man. This is working better for me. Feeding fresh nutes every 2 hours opposed to flooding with same solution and having to deal with bacteria on a way bigger scale. This is less maintenance for me.. moving from tables has been great.

No sorry not flood tables.. by table I meant pots full under a lite, my set up was just like yours almost. I ran a 50% 50% coco perlite, 1.5 gal air pots top fed .. now they make rings for them to flood and water evenly which I would of loved.
your grow and mine are exactly the same other wise,i had lite movers .I used to run teas and earth juice sugar peak for nutes. ,
wanna blow your mind, put a mat at the bottom for the roots to funnel into . I was blown away with the outcome, however I like moving things around and turning pots,

Is this bloomats..? So you are feeding from the bottom then.? The mat stays wet ? Send a link if can I'm into researching.
When I did flood an drain I used to stretch panda film over the tables then cut holes for my pots. Then the roots wouldn't see light and fill up in the tables . It would be optimal if the roots could have a place to spread yes. I get what you mean. I'm just not having a vision of the material used for the mat.
