Because when you do it the 'simple' way, you get poorer results. It boils down to your level of motivation, and a lot of people can't find the motivation to understand some fairly simple things. Growing weed is easy. Try growing shrooms if you want complicated.I agree with what you are saying, but I think for many, it's too advanced. Most people take a bit of time to get the basics down. Why make it more complicated?
100% agree. Except once dissolved they can be leeched easily. Like a flush in media. But yes I'm with you better to little and supplement than to much. I just wouldn't solely rely on synthetics in this case.Nutes, in particular nitrogen, washing out reasonably quickly is what you want when growing weed. I think they are washed out less quickly than you think, certainly if you are in the ground, rather than pots, as I am. Nutes aren't food, they are more like vitamins. An excess of nutes is much harder to remedy than a shortage. I am currently battling an excess of nitrogen from too much manure over the past five years.
Take a shit ton of rain, my plants shed rain like an umbrella.Well by synthetic I mean excluding slow release. The reason I say that is because they are immediately available and soluable so they are quickly washed out of the soil in a heavy rain unlike organic amendments.
Your points are exactly why I say this. But that's not to say that if they need a bump synthetics aren't good because that's exactly what I would use for a boost
They are hungry.Still don't get whats going on. Feel like they should have grown more. Bottom leaves still yellow. I used the aluminum to bring down pH and then got hit with like 3 weeks of rain. Haven't added any nutes because I thought the lower leaves yellowing might have been over watering. Don't know what to do now . Didn't want to just grab potassium without consulting y'all first. 2 of them got taller , 2 of them just stayed where they were at height wise. What do I do?!? Lol
Exactly. They wont come back like zombies. Pop em off. If the next set starts yellowing you know theyre still hungry. If you think theyre touchy now wait til flower time. Haha. As far as the difference in height.... Some strains/phenotypes grow slow and stocky so they might be fine now.Remove the bottom leaves. Once damaged, there is no recovery.
