I have them on blumats now and there happy happy. Problem is the helper is a dumb dumb and doesnt know how to adjust the blumats and every once in a while he will try to adjust them and fuck them up. Thats when the ec gets whacky
Im sure good helpers are priceless I havent found one yet
good helpers are called employees, and they get a weekly salary plus health insurance, and that makes it so they never mess up, always show up on time, and always ask if they can do anything extra to help the team. Only downside is they prefer to listen to Corridos while they work...

I'm learning with you.. Please keep the updates, thoughts and questions coming.. This Farm ROCKS!!

My coco is looking kinda light and my runoff ph is coming out around 6.8. Should it be coming out closer to what Im putting it in. Its going in at 5.8.
Ill get some pics up tomorrow dont know the coco very well

I should of said my coco plants look light. Im using RO water and H&G nutes with 1 ml per g calimagic total EC 1.3. I think I need to bump the calmag to 2 ml and run total ppms to 1.5. Im not thinking clearly due to the stress from the UC this run. Im running 4k in the room with co2 800-900 ppm they are starving I believe
Pics tomorrow should help

runoff ph is not very accurate in coco, but if there is that big of a swing something is probably up.

i would do a slurry test - 1 part coco from as deep as you can get it and 2-3 parts distilled water. mix it up real good and let sit 10min. take the pH of that and you will get a pretty accurate reading of the pH of the media.

i would mix up a straight 1.0EC solution and flush it through the plants to 10-20% runoff or so. test the EC of that and compare to your starting solution. that will help you figure out where they are on the nutes.

Sux the UC is giving such a stall during the side by side.. I hope they pick up soon..
Ya there not looking good and to top it off the fucking idiot helper decided to give them a foliar of 700ppm mothers nute mix. Not good for them at all. Just started getting nice new white roots growing out Friday and now today they look like shit
Really pissed and mite be getting rid of the UC for a couple full coco runs
Buy it aint over yet

I tested the run off the other day and it was coming out 50 ppm lower than what was going in

Thanks

Day 13 veg
There looking very hungry and under fed.
I bumped the nutes up across the board. 2ml calimag and 6 ml A & B bring my ec 1.46 ph 5.8
I watered one to check run off and it was going in at ec 1.46 coming out 1.0 ph going in 5.8 coming out 6.7
I also checked the runoff from the entire table and it was coming out ec 1.4 ph 7.0
Im thinking there even going to need more ec with the 1ks and co2 banging

Today they got there Aptus feeding should be banging tomorrow

For the UC Im hoping the rebound real fast or the mothers are taking there place


Heres where were at in my first real coco go

Bad ass brother. I tried the DWC but failed big time. Making the switch to coco/hydroton for my second attempt at growing and this is giving me hope that I made the right choice in the matter. Sorry about the UC... I was geared up for it and because of my epic fail.... I revamped my room.

Looking great bro killin it . I hope u uc gets going also idk tho i might top feed them a lil bit of water a day to help them along

those girls are short on Ca which is leading to an Mg uptake problem which in turn causes the lightening and the slight upwards taco. Mg is a key element in the production of chlorophyll.

i use tap water and still rock 2-3ml/gal Calimagic when the coco is getting charged up (ie the first 2-3 weeks that its in use).

with RO id expect to double that number. DWD recommended calimagic to me, and he used to use 5ml.gal with RO water. not sure what hes rocking these days though..

Ya thats my suspicion.
I hear a lot about h&g having plenty of cal in it thats why Im being cautious dont wanna lock out. But the plant dont lie. I upped the base nutes another ml a & b today. Ill check em tomorrow hopefully the get that green back.

ya they say that i used HG for years they work but i see that i need to tweak the schedule with more of a ( in veg ) and more of b ( in flower) and i used cal mag. still was having yellowing issues but when i upped the a mls in veg they took off
