    Plant Available Silicon, Soluble Silicon In Fertilizer Sources, Aafpco Approved Method

    His issue with the Sodium Carbonate + Ammonium Nitrate extraction was that it took 5 days to test in Silicon content in the Laboratory? That's not bad at all for cannabis growers taking into account that NO ONE in the industry is testing their content in the first place. @Quantrill is Agsil a...

    Switching To A Coco Coir Substrate

    You can also use a drip system with soil. There are two main differences between coco and soil as I see it and this is what I would consider... 1.) The water holding capacity of soil is much greater than coco which usually means you don't have to water it as often. Even if you set up an...

    Nutes And Forums Are Stressing Me Out

    I remember my first rodeo. I burned the shit out of my first crop with organic guano teas and they all died a miserable death. Then I switched to synthetics my second go round and pulled down some chronic Grand Daddy Purple using a rubber maid bin inside a closet. Never looked back after that...

    Cheap alternatives to overpriced hydroponic nutrients

    Might not be too much K even though you are pushing the limits by adding MOAB. I'd have to guess without looking at the numbers but I'd say you are probably not feeding enough Nitrogen, Calcium, and Magnesium when you cut the formula in half at week 4. If you cut the formula down it might be...

    I ran my pack and had ok germ rates- I think I got 8-10 seeds to pop. Found 3-4 females. Culled one of the runts. Out of three females they were very consistent. All had loud orginial gas terpenes that I was looking for. I found one male that had stellar structure and was louder than the females...

    Triacontanol- what it is, where to find it

    I never really noticed too much of a difference when I didn't use Tween- at least not enough for me to write home about. It's just that the Tween helps to spread it out over the canopy. @oscar169

    Triacontanol- what it is, where to find it

    Wow. I thought I'd never see that article again! Thanks for posting that. People have always asked me how I've come to the conclusion of Tria being in that product. Nowadays I don't even really push the idea that it contains Tria because the company refuses to acknowledge it.

    Plant Available Silicon, Soluble Silicon In Fertilizer Sources, Aafpco Approved Method

    I use silica at 5-10 ppm in working solution and have seen great benefit to my plants in terms of stem strength and resistance to disease and pests. I know that the table above recommends- 45-50 ppm for soiless use and I'm sure that works out just fine but the benefits of silicon can be given...

    Triacontanol- what it is, where to find it

    I never completed the experiment because of two main reasons: 1. Calcium 25 worked great by cutting down veg times by at least a week 2. Triacontonal was a bitch to use considering you had to heat it up in a microwave and mix with Polysorbate 20. I ended up buying a microwave just for mixing...
