Are you on 12/12, big auto, that should produce the goods.
I've been at 18/6 since the beginning. I was always under the impression that autos should always get 18/6 throughout their life since they handle their own scheduling for flower.

I just checked on her water levels and had to add back almost another 3 gallons.

Ec is now 240
Ph is 6.3

I'm not adding any nutes or hydroguard back when refilling the water, just checking pH after adding water and fixing if needed.(as per recommendations in this thread)

Not much of a recommendation lol.... technically all hydro feeding charts say “top off with ph balanced water” on them all though botanicare is weird theirs says 77f is their optimal for oxygen and aeration.

So, can someone tell me how to push my ppm to above 620 to like 800/1000?

Ok, I thought there was a way to raise ppm without adding in more nutes. People say that our plants love 700-1000ppm during flower but I feel like I would nute burn them if I put in that much. I only get about 670 after a RESCHANGE so I would have to be putting in even more nutes.

So I'm noticing the top leaves are starting to turn a lighter green. They also look a little small compared to other plants I have grown.

Am I doing ok here? I worry it's a nitrogen deficiency but I have been giving her the right nutes.

So another quick Q if anyone can help...

So my plant looks to have stalled for a bit and I don't know what nutes I should be focused on for now.

Comparing the bud sites to my previous grows, they look to be at about day 20 of flower, but if you look at the thread, they are actually about 35 days into flower..

What nute regimen should I be giving them right now? Early bloom? Mid bloom? I've been sticking to week 8 nutes schedule below and just wondering what others think..

The plants in the pics you put up are in flower, so you should be feeding flower nuits. And if your head tells you 670 is the point of burning, then stay at 670 and see what happens. I've not used your brand of nuits, so cant give you any definite answers.

Just wanted to post a little update.... Seems that pulling the wilting one has helped the growing one. She's been getting WAY too bushy (and I can't cut her since she's an auto and will take longer and hurt yeilds) but that's a good thing right??

But, I'm noticing some odd yellow spots on some of the leaves. Didn't find anything under the leaves so don't know. Hope someone can help...

Day : 51 since Germ
rH: 60-70%
Temp: 67night - 76F day
Water temps: about 68- 70F with hudroguard
Ph: 5.5-6.5
Ec: 600s

I'd scope the bottom of the spotted leaves for mites.

Hey guy, I have never grown autos myself, and I've heard they're picky about not liking a lot of nutes... however, 35 years of growing experience (plus your statement that you're only giving 670 ppm) tells me via the photo that that plant is just straight-up hungry. It's in the stage where it needs the most nutes, and you're giving it survival rations. IMHO, you DO need to pump up the nutes to 800-1000+ ppm—like now.

So I just checked the res after it sitting for a day and it drank up a ton of water but barely any nutes. Filled it back up with pH'd water and will check again tomorrow morning.

EC is going down and pH is rising a little so looks like they are eating nutes, but a lot more water.

If I see the ec drop significantly then I'll know she's eating like crazy right? Right now it's eating up water like crazy and nutes a little here and there.
