6 Blazing Blues in Coco DTW HGO Style

Hello to all on icmag

I have been singed up for a good few years just never got round to posting as was more active on other forums.

My main growing style is flood & drain in mapito ive been doing it this way for atleast 5years and hit gpw depending on strain I love it but it was time for a change I read HGO thread years ago and really liked this growing style i think the coco appeals to me the most no more breathing in them fibres from the rockwool

So the setup:

80x80x180cm Veg Tent
Gavita on 600w
Can 4" 270m3 outtake
Canna Coco Professional Plus
Mills Nutrients
Metrop Calgreen
Superthrive
H&G Root Stimulator

The flower room will be 1.2 x 1.2 x 1.8 loft tent.

Some pics for now

The plants are in 5.7l pots and pump is maxijet 1000 only question if anyone can help I fed them via drippers first time yesterday it took 2minutes for run off to come out is this a good time? I was going to feed once everyday for now but pot still fully saturated should I go once every 2days roots are out the bottom and plants have been in pots about 5days now.

Thanks

Ok so I'm thinking water everyday as reading more through HGOs thread as roots are out bottom of pots already. Also is using Calmag necessary in Coco? I only use it to raise ec by .1 so not that much.

Any advice be appreciated

Cheers

For me, the more you water, the more growth you get. So once my roots are established, I will water 3 times a day with amazing results.

As far as cal-mag and coco... it depends. With tap water, you have to do some testing with ppm meter and read a water report. My water is under 80 ppm and had some mg def on my first round. I added 1ml of calmag+ and 1/8 teaspoon of epson salt per gallon to my mix now, all good.

So I watered again yesterday the drippers was on for about 2minutes and I got out roughly 100ml to 150ml of drain water from each pot they took about a litre of water each.

Ec 1.1 Ph5.7 going in and read the drain water of each plant it varied from dropping .1 to .2 ec ph was same I'm assuming this cause there in new coco not stabilise yet and plus I rinsed clay pebbles and added a top layer to pot.

Some pics there starting to come round now I will use the tops of plants for cuttings always find these the strongest mothers

They are looking good! I've been told multiple times don't measure runoff on coco, it will just confuse things imo. Keep the right stuff going in and all should be good. Thanks for the new pics!
