I'm glad you like the thread! Thank you greatly for the kind words. :)Holy Guacamole this thread is amazing! I've been stalking for a while and finally created an account to ask for advice.
I'm running almost the same setup, I didn't know to line the bottom of the pots with anything so I'm all 80/20 coco/perlite to the bottom.
I'm using the head formula with the gh liquids and am 2 weeks into flower.
1. When you up the ppm, aren't you changing the formula then? And what would you suggest upping liquid wise as I don't use the powder?
2. Are you still in favor of the +life and the booster(can't remember the name you used in your journal)?
Many MANY thanks for all this info, people like you make the internet worth it!
1. Because I use a 1-part powder I don't change the formula(ratio) when I increase the feed strength unless I decide to add an an additional PK booster. If you are using the h3ad formula you have the option to either keep the ratio same and increase feed strength, or you can choose to add more Bloom. Depending on which way you go really depends on how the plants are doing and what kind of environment you are working with.
2. I still want to do more runs to be sure or maybe a few side by sides but so far I believe that +life is good stuff. It's pretty affordable too. Is it necessary for success? I don't think so, but I do think it helps with root development and health maintenance to an extent. As for the PK booster called Shine. I'm not particularly sold on it. I've done some runs with and without it and I'm not sure I see a difference. That could be because I'm not running the type of environment that really requires its use.
Thanks for stopping in. I enjoy it! :smoking:
