Thanx Bro! Im assuming you feed water, water, then feed again? :thinking

i feed with every watering pretty much. rarely do they get just reverse osmosis water. last week or two only really. with all the goodies i give them, i have to spread that out over a couple of waterings or else my ppm's would be way too high. i don't use a ph pen or a ec/tds meter so i keep it to about 3-5 TBS per gallon per watering depending on what they are getting. i used to check ph and such, i just don't anymore. way too much hassle for me. i hand water so that can get ridiculous. with RO water and soil, you really don't need to worry about all that imo.

Nice grow/variety dican01 :nod Cant wait to see the results!

thanks! i am excited. going to be some good ones for sure. working on cultivating patience for now and focusing on the veg so that i can get another one in there right after.

dican01 those are some beautiful plant's!
Awesome job bro!:rasta2:
Gotta love the Root's!

appreciate that! i have yet to be disappointed with roots organics. i am not even interested in switching nutrients or soil at this point. only things i might add are from soul synthetics, roots organics sister company. their amino aide and big swell look pretty good. might have to fit those in pretty soon.

thanks man. i am hopefully getting the whole soul synthetics line soon and will be testing it side by side with the roots organics line. i hear it is very similar to botanicare's pure blend pro line. i used to use them before roots with really good results and am interested to see how the soul synthetics line is. i know it is more water soluble and also ph balanced, which both work better with my system of hand watering with RO water and not checking for ph. the roots buddha grow and bloom sometimes get stuck in my watering cans as they are sandy/muddy.

Killer line up man!!!
You sure have those girl's
lovin life!!!:rock
thanks waayne! this batch is doing pretty good. i have done much better with good seeds though so far. looks like i am only going to get like 2-3 real keepers from this batch of 14 supposed "elite" clones. hoping to have better luck with the next batch and thinking of purchasing some more seed soon also.

Got question for ya.......I am 5 1/2 weeks or so.......how long do you flush your plants for running the roots line?

thought you would have full first hand experience with the stuff.......

Oh I hate the ph thing.....I got to get RO water cause our SF water is NAR
I brita filter mine now but PHing it is a nightmare...

it really depends on the soil you are using and the strains you are growing. in roots organics soil, i will flush for 1-2 weeks depending on things. in a soil more amended like fox farm ocean forest, i might flush for 2-3 weeks.
i know people who only flush for a week. it all depends on how much unused nutrients are left in the soil. at 5 1/2 weeks, i would probably start pretty soon unless you know they will take longer than 8 weeks.
if you live in san fransisco, your guys water system is getting way too old and the quality is pretty bad. get yourself a RO system when you get the cash money, your plants will love it.

I am running the roots organics coco mix.....strains are 7-10 week strains and already getting a little yellow on the leaves from natural flush...

thanks for the info bro..

thanks frostedlove. grow bags suck imo. i do not like them. the only reason i am using them is that i can get 25 of them for 5 dollars. i have used plastic pots and 5 gallon buckets before and prefer both to bags. i will be getting some 5 gallon buckets soon. it is harder to pack soil into the bags and also harder to water and move them.
