This is awesome thank you so much and when you say run off you mean till the water starts coming out onto the ground from the pot correct
Yes it will run out the sides of the bag. But be sure it isn’t just water running down between the soil and the bag. Water the entire pot thoroughly. That pot ought to be taking at least 3 - 5 gal’s to get good run off.

Depends how long it takes to dry out. I’d guess a fab pot that size in warm weather about 4 days. Possibly five. Watch the leafs, they’ll tell you when to water. When they droop it’s time to water to run off again and so on.
Also how do you feed it at that point if you are only watering every 4 days as I feed am feeding them fox farm this year, this is my second grow and last year we did the same but only water no food and from six plants we got 56 ounces

Is this safe to do when in the flowering stage and will it make buds taste gross
Very much so. Hydrogen peroxide just degrades to water and oxygen in a matter of minutes. Some folks who battle humidity and PM dunk their buds in it at harvest as they hang them with zero residue.

Oxidate is made with a combination of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and peracetic acid (PA) which is the product of reacting H202 with acetic acid, and it's quite a bit more effective than H202 alone. It has a 0 hour pre-harvest interval. Sadly I don't think Oxidate is available in small quantities but you can get small quantities of PA and make your own.

But all of it is 100% safe. Oxidate is even allowed under the USDA organic program.

You feed same as you are now. But you’ll be mixing a larger volume.

Not sure what is going on but my plants are hurting and no one can tell me what is wrong, please see pics and let me know what you think, I don’t want to lose my whole crop. I do not see any signs of bugs or mold and I do feed them fox farms big bloom and fox farms tiger bloom which they get 2 tbs of big bloom and 2 teaspoons tiger bloom per gallon of water and plants are in 35 gallon fabric pots with pro mix as the medium, they get watered everyday one gallon each and are fed on day 1 3 and 5 of the week with the above mixture. Please let me know your thoughts.
I can tell you for certain what it is as it killed 5 very large plants. It is a mold that is ravaging parts of New England. My BCP strain plants could not fight it off and died. Two other strains seem to be able to at least keep it in check. It's aweful stuff that has no cure as far as I can tell. My plants even had an oil coating.

The problem is that there is so much in air that you won't be able to stop it. It's the most devastating mold I have ever encountered in many decades of growing. Either you strain can battle it or it can't.

So do you think the hydrogen peroxide mixture will work and if so is it safe for the buds

Mine were in ground by a tree that was devastated by it so once the rot hit bud sites it was all over. If you can keep them dry you may be able to save them but every time it rained it got worse. Once plants started to flower they lost all defense mechanisms. Maybe you can do better than I?

It has rained just about every day for 3 months with zero wind. There is no clearing up this mold. It has destroyed whole trees! The soil hasn't been dry on months!

Dr.zymes is great product for mold. Safe... You can do soil drinch with it and also spray the plants up to harvest.

This is a Quebec Blue that has been fighting the mold with great courage and has fought it off bud sites. However, the growth seems stunted and I'm sure the buds will mold once they form meaning I won't smoke them.

I use stylet oil. Pure refined white mineral oil. Works awesome against just about everything and you can pour on roots too. It had zero power to stop this insane variety of mold. Just about every tree and plant has it to some degree.

I must say, it has been a constant battle since the day I figured out what it was. Like I mentioned before, I have it at bay and its not getting WORSE but its still there.
Also mentioned before, fans are helping along with snipping it off and using LC. The stunted growth I was seeing I am attributing to me having to defoliate so much. The flowers have been continuing to thrive since I was able to slow down on the heavy snipping. I have been using a handheld electric blower to get the plants some what dry at first light every morning. But as I am doing that I think to myself "am I just blowing Spores all over," Grr. Its a battle I refuse to give up on. Forecast has better weather this week. Time on my rump can be time in the Jungle fixin and snippin.

I'm 99% sure that is Septoria leaf spot. Remove infected leaves. Treat with sulfur or Oxidate 5.0. Move your plants to a different location if you can, or mulch the ground around the pots.

Here's a photo of Cannabis with Septoria, confirmed by lab testing:

Hey grnmtn, you did your best. That’s all you could do. I’ve grown many plants (all outdoors) and some just seem “off” for some reason. It can be septoria, thrips, mites, or just slow weird growth. I grew six outdoor feminized plants this year with two of them growing thin and tall and lagging far behind the other four. I learned to be efficient with my time and efforts by chopping the slow pokes (with obvious growth problems) in July and concentrating my time on the other four. Best growing decision I made in a long time. I’ve also learned to plant a couple extras over the years for this particular reason. Sometimes less is more. Good luck in future grows.
