    We are using a DWC system with 17 gal reservoir and GH nutes. We have a 400w MH bulb, the ppm are 981 ,PH 5.2 and temp 77 degrees.

    We want to veg for 2 more weeks to give little plant the chance to catch up and that will switch to 400w HPS bulb,12/12, and start adding Flora Bloom.

    If anyone has any advise on this strategy it would be greatly appreciated, as this is our first grow and I have no clue what to do next.

    I have included pictures of the big 2 month old Kush the small 1 month old and the roots of the large Kush for your review and comments

    Hey MostlyCrazy,
    Thanks for the advice. I have not heard the term fimmed but we just started pruning the top of both plants last week. Could you explain supercroping or send me a good link to teach me?

    No have not been using any bloom during veg stage-should we be? are there any other nute products which you would recommend?

    Any ides on the best time for me to start flowering?

    Thanks for you help.

    I fim as they grow and with my strain I can even supercrop into the 2nd week of flower. It just a means to manage the canopy and develop more growing tips (fim) and expose more of the top part of theplant directly to the light above them.

    With the GH flora line if you you are in the stage it looks like you are ( vegatative growth) the ratio of Grow-Micro-Bloom (G-M-B) is 3-2-1. That would be 15ml of grow, 10ml of micro and 5 ml of blooom per gallon.

    As far as additional products that can help – I use Cannazyme ( protects the roots and if any roots die it desolved them back into nutes the plant can use). If you res water temp get high this can be especially helpful. I also use cal-mag but I use tap water and it’s around 350-400ppm and without it the “chucks” in my water tend to not be available for the plant and cal-mag is the fix. I also sometimes use superthrive ( a general vitamin shot) and I also use floraklean about every other res change to make sure no nuteint salts and/or general gunk stays in my system.

    I strongly believe a new grower should keep it simple and go the the flora series alone unless you see a problem developing. With your grow so far I would say you’re on the right path but I would add some flower nutes per directions to get them prepared for 12/12 if nothing else.

    Speaking of which, I start flower when the leaves alternate on the growing tip. Usually they are right across from each other but when they alternate that indicates that the plants are mature and ready to flower. You can always let them go longer and let the plant get bigger but that’s my sure indication that when I am ready they are ready.

    Here’s a link to the GH calculator. When in doubt use less rather than more and that will keep you safe frm nute burn.

    Change the res amount to the amount of water you put in your res and it will give you the volume of nutes you should add. Pay no attention to the nutes you don’t use. G-M-B is all you really need and the rest sort of depends on budget and the particular strain needs.
