You have the K boost in bud candy so you should be good

sorry i missed this

thank you for your patience @Aqua Man

ahh i think i understand. by increasing the EC through A and B and keeping the ratios as it is i will naturally increase the K

is that right ?
So take NPK (using random number just to explain)

1.6 EC

mega crop only

N=150ppm
P= 50ppm
K= 200ppm
npk total = 400ppm

the rest is made up of various others

you have a 3-1-4 ratio

then you add 150ppm of K from bud candy.

N=150
P=50
K=350

your ratios change so when you dilute it to 1.6 you have less N and P but more K.

So you may need to increase the ppm to get adequate N of 150ppm which translates to running a higher ppm

this is a terrible explanation but just to give you an idea of what i mean

that has helped a lot . thank you so much @Aqua Man .

i am trying to learn and understand more about nutrients and ratios, but it can be a bit challenging at first .

Ratios are more important than concentrationâ€¦ and different genetics have different preferences as well as at different times. There are some general statements that ring true but imo there is no one best recipe that is the best for all plants.

This is an area im not overly knowledgeable in yet and still in the infancy of learning this for myself. I get by on what i know but by no means an expert in the areaâ€¦ just soooo many moving parts to it.

being able to read the plants is probable the first thing you need to be able to do to start getting more advanced on the topicâ€¦ that or access to a lot of testing equipment

i go into the grow room maybe 2 times a day even when nothing needs to be done , just so i can familiarize with them and see the changes they make day by day . i hope to be able to get to the point where i can see an issue and know what it is and how to fix . but mate there is so much to learn and so many nuances . it can be pretty addictive trying to learn as much as possible đź™‚

hi @Aqua Man

i am starting week 6 of flower today .

i have changed the feeding 3 days ago from a near 50/50 of A and B to get to 1.6 with 1g/G of sweet candy , 1g/G epsom salts to get to 1.6 , to now doing this

0.2EC tap water
4.2 of A and 1.8 as a ratio to get to 1.3 EC
1 g/G sweet candy
1 g/G epsom salt
to get to 1.6EC

i have about 4 weeks of flowering left and will use a low EC for the last 2 weeks

Yup yup they looking great man

thank you mate , you've been a massive help and i appreciate it very much

@Aqua Man . monday will be the start of week 7 flowering, i think i have about 3 weeks left .

should i cut out the part b to use less N or stick with the ratio on the packet of 4.2 A / 1.8 B ?

should i stop adding calmag and stick with the epsom salts

i will cut nutes for the last 2 weeks to about 0.6 EC . what should that be made up of ?

i have potassium sulphate , do i use that for the last week ?

sorry for all the questions , i just want to try and get it better than last time .

hi @Aqua Man

i use RO water and add tap water to bring it up to 0.2 EC

i have noticed that my tap water can range from 0.5 EC to 1.1 EC

there must be a lot of stuff in it that i probably don't want or should use .
do i always have to use the tap water to bring it up to 0.2 or can i just add calmag to bring it up to 0.2 ?

Hey @Aqua Man is it recommended to feed with 600 to 800 ppm at every watering in cocopeat or feed water water feed..?
