im using pro mix premium moisture its 80 to 90% peat moss and that is what i was worried about is salt build up i did a light flush right before i switched to flower i was thinking about another flush maybe around week 5 also i do not water until runoff i have nothing to catch it inIf you feed every watering, watch for salt buildup in the soil. Ph will be higher coming out than going in. I water every 3rd watering. Hard to remember what your substrate is without going back and searching for it. The more neutral (coco, peat, perlite), the more you need to feed as there are no nutrients in those blank substrates. If you have any kind of organic soil in there, it will hold nutrients so you can back off. That is why most recommend using nutes at half strength. I continue veg nutes pretty much into 3rd week of flower then start moving to bloom. If you use synthetics, remember to leave 2 weeks at the end of nothing but plain water to flush them. Organics - you can feed till you chop.
Defoliation...they sure are thick and you have a heavy canopy. That makes for higher Rh under the canopy and that can lead to mold. Be careful....You are at a great point to lollipop...basically clean off all the fans under the 3rd node...all.

These are 1 gal cloth...peat, perlite, some compost from the yard, some living soil...it is a GDP/GG4. Not shown is my AG (my favorite strain since the 60's) and GDP (the density on GDP is enough to make me careful of mold).
PS - I'm watching
The answers will likely be...there is 3 things im hoping to see at the end of this grow . i have been doing autos so i want to see
1 will photos produce more weight then autos ?
2 how the nets help lol ?
3 what difference pot size make my last grows was 3 gallon plastic pots this grow 5 gallon fabric pots
photos definitely return more than autosThe answers will likely be...
3. Healthier plants due to more root space to open up and breathe
Yeah I used it add as bloom additive. Remember Im growing in homemade soil that has manure in it already so my plants can grow all on their own with the soil alone. However sometimes if the leaves look a little light in color I will add a dose of either dissolvable veg feed or bloom feed. A standard grow I may only add it a handful of times along with CalMag. The organics one is cool cuz its not salt based its a white powder I think probably calcium based. You just scoop it in your water can and stir it real good before adding. Im sure there are better organic powder fertilizers out there but this one is cheap and easily available right around the corner at HD or Lowes. So far so good my last few runs came out solid.does organic fertilizer contain salts
i been wondering are you still using that miracle grow organic plant food ?
Happy frog dry amendments work good. Sacrifice a little yield for easy....i wanna try something different for my next grow i'm not sure if i be able to get any pro mix but if i can find it i will reuse it , and i really wanna try some brand of organic plant food just so i do not have to worry about salts
no not at all. I use organic and non organic. The reason why I like the MG Organics more than the regular non organic is because its non-salt based. The salt based stuff still works good but if you fertilize a lot it can build up in the pot.so does going organic mean i have to sacrifice on my yields ?
