Chemdog 4 3rd grow

I would be adding something like bud Bandy to the mix also. Just be careful on how much you add (products in general) you don’t want the Ec to high

Can you break that down for me? Never added anything but hydroguard to the Grobo - thanks :blush:

If you choose to add p/k boost, this is the method I use for the liquid nutrient Big Bud by Advanced Nutrients. I believe it’s salt based but derived from organic material.

Ideally, in this setting, it is considered best to use nutrients that are salt derived, as these nutrients will not leave residue in the pipes causing possible buildup. Just something to keep in mind… I have not noticed any buildup or problems with my system’s tubes through this second grow while using it for 2 weeks, but I can imagine it will build up if used again (which I do plan to do). Looking forward to documenting.

Either way, my current method is to add ~1mL of your chosen bloom booster to the reservoir, or to the water with which you will fill your res. Then I let the system add its nutrients and such and I had not noticed any issues.

I suppose I don’t have to remind you that the Grobo already adds its own p/k nutrients but adding a booster will certainly increase yield, just be conservative! A little goes a long way I found. And I believe @Chad_Johnson used Big Bud for 5 weeks of flower on the critical purple.

Lemme find it… I saw it there somewhere.

The main concern is you don’t add to many extra’s to the tank… Making your Ec to high with the extra’s…

In the past when I added to the Grobo I would do a drain / fill… wait for grobo to dispense all nutes and let it mix… Then I would remove a couple litres of nute water and replace it with water with extra’s added… Doing it this way you can control how high your Ec is… You plant already looks on the high side for nutes to me. I just don’t want to see you burn her.

Thanks all. I may wait until next grow to try adding on. This is going very well and I’m nervous :grimacing:

I did find all these in the closet though. I know to use A TINY LITTLE BIT. Even though @OrionsCeiling warned me, I had to find out for myself (tent). Off to read

Leaves look like a bit of nute burn. Id just make sure your not dosing nutes directly onto a wad of roots, sometimes ive had to gently massage them to get them to let go of the sensors and nutrient area. Otherwise only some roots get a massive dose. Thats my experience. She looks great Otherwise
