So Hello Everyone,
I currently have 4, from what I have been told to be is "Ghaniberry".
I used 400w MH for veg and 400 w HPS for flower in rockwool on rockwool slabs with drip system running all day/night. Everything seems to be progrssing as well as could be expected. I am using the GH Recirculating feeding schedule with 3 part nutes, liquid kool bloom, flaralicious plus, hygrozyme for the roots.
On sunday, it will be the stat of the 7th week of flowering since i flipped 'em to 12/12. Per the schedule from GH, that is when I introduce dry kool bloom into the nute mix. I know many people have said this will herm your girls if not careful. I also know from first hand witness that it does in fact stack on the weight an tighten up the colas.
My question is this, should I use it at say, 1/4 strength or more? (Suggested dose 1/4 tsp per gallon. I run a 10 gal res so I would be using little less tan 1/2 tsp in 10 gals. I think this should be ok. If any of you pros out there know the right strength for dry kool bloom powder, help a honky out!! TRYING TO KEEP AWAY FROM HERMING THEM AS WELL.

week 7 is too late for an indica. I toss a whole big scoop into a 40 gal res at week 6 till 8. Then flush like a mofo cause that stuff will build up salts like no other, and it will take 7+ days to flush it out. And a PK booster causing a herm? never heard of or experienced this?

Thanks for the reply. So I am understanding you, you're saying that the beginning of week seven is too late to use the dry bloom powder? I have some very nice buds forming and need to pack on some weight and tighten them up. I figured this would be the perfect time considering the last time I grew this strain, i could have let it go 10-12 weeks but had to cut at nine due to outside temps. Was still great smoke just harvested a little soon according to the trichs. As for the PK booster causing herms, just google "Dry Kool Bloom powder herm" or something. you will see what I mean.Thanks again. I look forward to your input.

I searched google...:confused:

you mean this one thread from a childish forum where no one proves a thing, just spouts off at the mouth what ever...?
hXXp://www.rollitup.org/indoor-growing/7942-kool-bloom-hermies.html

lol..i did search and couldnt find much

and yes, just as stated in that thread use your bloom additives from the first day of 12/12 or even before.

my nute line up for bloom (9-10 week indicas)
GH3 part base, Liq carbo load base, pH
bud blood week 1
open ses week 2-3
monster bloom weeks 4-5
dry kool bloom weeks 6-9
flush week 10


see i add a lot of other PKs during the other weeks

im forgetting somethings like calmag and snowstorm as those are not needed all the time.

I've used dry KB for years with no hermies. I believe if you have time to use it for a couple weeks it will do some good.

This is kind of what I thought as well. I was going to use for weeks 7-9 then flush for a week then chop.
When using the Dry KB, did you use it full strength? I am using 1/2 tsp per 10 gallons, waaay under the recommended dosage. Thanks for your continued support.
