I use the same levels on multiple heavy sativas and do get some burnt tips in growth phase but not enough to ass with dilution. Be warned that this pheno of BH I've been running is a confirmed hog. I could get away with more feeding and see zero nutrient burn. I don't fully subscribe to the "less is more" crowd. When under intense lighting or the sun I feed heavy in growth phases and maintain dark growth otherwise I get yellowing/unhappy plants. I dial back after a few weeks in flower.
What are you growing in? Soil? I could be of more use with that information.
I'm in promix with about 25% Happy frog. I add SRP Gypsum and lime and soak with orca thats my myco, and mammoth P biota. Usually that sits for a month before use indoors. Indoors I use a 25 to 1 ratio of water to fish hydrolysate and have been adding kool bloom to get the P and K up in the last few weeks.
I have started working with salts this season, got a gold dealers scale and am working on a blend for outdoor.
In the growers lounge on this site I got a recipe posted by Jidoka and have used it on my indoors a few times with good results so far
I put 5 gallons of tap water in a 6 gallon bucket and add.
6g epsom salts
I intend to use this ratio outdoors on the Bangi clones just cut. They go outdoors in late june here at 38 degrees. Jidoka suggest scale up to a higher EC if you want but keep the ratio. I bought some bone char and sulfate of potash to topdress with outdoor but am unsure on how much to use. The char is from fertrell at 0-12-0. I have three different methods this year for outdoor.
1 is a 30 gal tub which nest inside another 30 gal with 8 inches of water in the bottom one. There's a net pot in the bottom of the top tub filled with rockwool
2 is a 65 gallon shortie fabric bed
3 I just dug it out on the ridge and am mounding up 60 gal of my used mix.
Last year I got 12 oz of bangi from one of the tubs with the cut I saved. Other pheno's in the shortie had much less.
Thanks for sharing your methods and happy growing.
