I think I want to find some sort of plastic floors that I can set the pots on that will feed and I can run it out of the tent into my sump pump to. Then it will auto feed to runoff and auto drain. I can of course stop it and measure when need be too.
Yup thats all i do suck it up with a syringe as its running down the table.

Yup easy as that. This is mine that can do up to 24 plants. Total cost for the feed system was a bit more than needed because I chose to use a diaphram pump and many sites. I also made a drain table and used a condensate pump to automatically pump all runoff down the drain.

I fill the res about every 4 days now and the rest it does on its own. Total cost for the table, autodrain and autofeed was lUNDER $500CAD But can be done much cheaper... especially if just the feed system with pond pump under $100.
Is this the reason why the two crops I harvested didn’t have much smell?

Could be many reasons... but I would say its likely the huge amount of sodium that caused almost all of your issues.

What nutes would you suggest a novice like me use? I did stop using purpinator and added rock resonator.

I like dry ferts just much cheaper. Any balanced nutrient will work well. There is really no miracles... thise only exist on the labels. Pretty much any balanced fert works and you need to understand the nutrients you have before adding any additives. Nutrient ratios are extremely important not just the ppm.

Right now im using the mega crop 2 part and adding some mag sulfate to it with massive In flower (minus my idiocy in veg with it lol). Jacks 321 is a good dry fert option.

I think my 22lb bag of mega crop v1 cost me like $40 plus shipping and I still have tons yrs later. Its no longer available. I think jacks is a good one although I have never used it but probably give it a go after I'm finished all this mega crop.

I'd prob say give jacks RO or jacks 321 a go and save yourself a lot of money.

What if you don’t really care about the money. Just want something that is easy and produces amazing.

Thats not nutrients... PBP grow start to finish can add the bloom if ya like liquid and mixes easy. Add and ph.

The grower is gonna make the grow. Environment all of that. Of you have a balanced nute that's all you need the rest is on you. There is no fert that grows good weed for ya.

Do you have a ppm by stage chart you go by?

I'm a Canna fan, middle price ranged nuits, and once you've had a dabble its easy to keep every thing on track.

I could give you a rough guide but always go by plant response.

SEEDLING/CLONE first 7-10days
100-200ppm
VEG.
Week 1 150-300ppm
Week 2 300-400ppm
Week 3 400-600ppm
Week 4 500-600ppm

FLOWER
Weeks 1-6 600-700ppm
Week 7 400-500ppm
Week 8 150-300ppm

As with most this is just a rough guide. It can change depending on additions but if ya keep it basic and follow that it should put ya pretty close.

Ya, I’m in coco
Oh geeze... I feel stupid. Sorry been helping a few different grow styles this week and mixing things up. Yeah flush 7-10days about 100-150ppm suggest part of that be 2-3gram per gal of mag sulfate for the boost to sulfur.

I use florakleen to flush. Does that contain the magnesium sulfate I would need? Is nectar of the gods a good brand to go with since my GH three parts not good?

Not that I know of. I have never used it. Nothing wrong with your nutrients man. All these ferts are the shame shit with slight changes in ratios and put into 50 different bottles to take as much of your money as possible.
