I have recently flushed my plants using green cleaner while in veg stage, now I’m trying to figure out how often should I water/feed nutrients? Also would two feedings of 4 ounces every other day be to much for my plants? Thank you for the help

Hey how are you, the media is coco soil the nutrients is general hydroponic flora micro, flora gro, and flora blend. I started off with 3oz twice a day of nutrients every other day and I stopped for about a week and a half and just gave water 4oz twice a day temps btwn 65-75 degrees. About 2 days ago I flushed the plants with green cleaner I let it sit for 15 mins then I flushed the plants with clean water and let them drain for 30 mins after that placed the plants back in the tent where I will be watering later in the morning for the first.
Lol I apologize if this wasn’t the correct information I’m new to growing thanks for the help.

Hello mate, welcome to the farm, looks like a nice setup. Just a heads up watering amounts have no context without pot info, as correct watering practice is dependent on both the medium and container size. As a general observation that's a chaotic and inconsistent watering schedule. Cannabis, and any plant confined to a pot, hate inconsistency and disturbances to schedule more than almost anything. Feeding just water for a week = telling your plants to go starve for a week. There's no nutrient in Coco so they are screaming for food during that time. There are clear signs of nutrient stress, some burning on the tips, looks like nitrogen tox based in the thick, deep green leaves.

Pop as much info as you can here for the best advice. The gurus on here will want all the info on your pot type/size, RH and temps, light type/height/power level, or much better than that a PPFD or lux reading from top of canopy. There's good help here but overall it looks to me like first grow sort of chasing different approaches, if you're anything like me reading something that contradicts what I'm doing and feeling like changing things up. Consistency should be you watchword. The guys here will refer you to AquaMan's thread on Coco watering which will completely change up how you water. But give as much info as possible so they can identify possible lighting issues as well. You'll be right in track in no time man ✌️

We enjoy helping each other grow dank cannabis but we all grow with our own style. I use 10 ml. cups to measure 5 ml. calimagic, bloom by Dyna-Gro, or Grow if in veg or sometimes Humbolt Oneness. I use the metric system some and U.S. measurement so it can get confusing. Reading @Aquaman "How to water Coco" is advised for sure. Coco has no nutriments like was eluded to in the previous post. R&D is your friend here. SS

Very well said. Apologies if anything I said sounded like there's only one way to skin a cat. I'm sure there are people who play loose and fast with watering per can do it on feel, I just find any time I'm doing something for the first time, less is more, and consistency is the mother of excellence. Most important though is to enjoy it and grow good medicine. Apologies if I was abrupt, nothing but love peeps.

Hello brother, I have 5 and 3 gallon fiber pots I only stopped giving them nutrients in fear that I was over feeding them. I was told by the guy who started them to stop giving nutrients because they were dying from the bottom up. I have googled multiple videos to find the correct feeding amount, it seems everyone suggests that I should feed once to every two watering days. Do that sound like a reasonable amount to you? Also when I cut the light on in the morning the temperature is usually 67 degrees and the humidity between 55-60, later in the evening the temperature goes up to 74 and the humidity is 54. I run three lights two of them are king led 1500w and a small 130w grow light. Do you feel the ppfd would make growing much easier? Starting today I will begin to feed and water them on a consistent schedule. Do you have any advice to help

That would be all of the nutrients you mix together to make your food correct? Also do you feed/water twice a day? How much water should I give my 5 gallon pot daily? Thank you for the help in advance💪🏾

Ah cool I can see where you're coming from with the nutes. Must be tricky if you get them already in nute stress. I won't even bother guiding you on watering now you've got the Aquaman thread in your toolkit. It's the Bible for Coco watering and all I've ever used, would rather you get it from there than filtered through my dodgy brain 😂 Man you've got some serious photons available to you, once you get your setup tuned in reckon you'll bang out serious quantity in that nice big tent! Can't wait to see how you go. Environment sounds pretty dang good man, get your watering sorted and bring that 🔥 😍 Sounds like you've got everything else pretty well in place.
