^^^^^^Lordy, anybody see that FUCKING BOWL of weed up there ^^^^^^
heheh - yah, I get that - whenever I open the door, "What the hell is that" still crosses my mind
Again, not really speaking from vast experience specifically, but generally...the less variables, the easier the variables are to maintain.
Much respect to finding this. I'll have to try it out.
With other K.I.S.S methods in mind, should anybody be interested.
Botanicare PBP soil
Hydrodynamics Ionic (hardwater if you don't have a ro filter)
I say this because I've had problems using the lucas formula before. I followed it to the T and had deficiencies. In its defense, it could have been bad coco, but when I switched to PBP soil mid run, things came back to normal.
I too have had defics running straight lucas, and burned other varieties all the same. great for 50/50 hybrids though the PPM is High. I ran 6/12 with better results and now run 6/9 w adds.
I love ionic, but its hard to find here and it is a little spendy.
Don't forget that there are nursery fertilizers like
and tons of others online that are great ferts for a fraction of the price. Who needs the hydro store ferts? its where all the money is made! trust me. I'm an ex retailer and fert rep. I got pretty rich off AN
read some of shroom dr & carl Carlsons posts about good cheap ferts
Ok I took the dive and bought some Maxibloom at the shop today along with a Bluelab EC Truncheon and an alkalinity pond tester. My tap water quality from the truncheon is lighting up in between .2-.4 EC, 100-200 on the ppm(ecx500), and 140-280(ecx700). The pond kit read in between 40-80ppm alkalinity. PH is at 7.7. I think my water is good to go. Gonna try tap with Maxi on two girls. Will post results!
I've used Maxibloom...good shit...and easy.
you've got good water. That's a good hardness so you probably...maybe...won't need supplemental CA/MG. And the nutes will probably bring your pH down to a good level without any added ph down. You're lucky.
