I did...that’s why it’s strange that they wilted and sagged when I only watered a little bit.read this.
Ok writing this cause i see this issue often and rather have a thread to link than explain this each time. This is not my work but a collection of info from many members here and I have put into practice myself. So first off COCO is NOT soil. For best results we want to keep it saturated...www.thcfarmer.com
Strange that they sag when I watered to runoff the very first time. As for PH and feeding, the nutrient im using is 5ml per liter from seed to harvest with every watering. It’s PH buffered so just added to tap water. Mantis Buffered Nutrients. I’d say that’s the problem but another member here has great results from it, and I’ve read good stuff. I dunno I’m at a loss for the reason, let’s see what tomorrow looks like lol.
- Add perlite to the coco. 70/30(perlite) ratio.
- water until run off. Make sure bottom of cups have very good drainage add extra holes if need be... to let all water drain out and not soak any water up back into it.
- Water every 2-3 days depending on size of plant & weight of cups. (get a feel for what it weighs with and without water- make a side cup and fill with coco and see the difference) - NEVER let it fully dry out should always be moist/saturated. ph 5.8 if you need to adjust it...can drift a bit without harm.
- Use very diluted nutrients(1/4) every time and always add calimag at half dose to full dose (seedling stage). Coco hoards calimag.
This is my PERSONAL guideline for seedling to early veg ONLY. I use GH trio with calimagic. Each watering gets hydrogaurd added. slf-100 (1-2 times a week).
DEFGUARD is a cheaper choice as its super concentrated as the alternative to Hydroguard.
