I have the HLG 650R LED Grow Lights and I'm using Coco Loco soil.What light system is that covering? Must be talking about HPS because that wont work vegging under HOT5s or LEDs. And that PH wont work for DWC or Hydro.
I use Fox Farms but never used their charts. Course i use FF on all my veggies too.
Thanks!This is what my week by week is going to be like. I still don't know how much Cal Mag I'm suppose to use... Any input is greatly appreciated
I'm following Fox Farm's feeding schedule.
@P83.... I use R/O water therefore all calcium and magnesium are removed by the filters. I use 7 1/2 mill/gal. With tap water I would guess between 3 to 4 mil would be fine.
I honestly guess at my cal mag usage. I use as directed at 1st. Then stop using it as much. I watch my plants closely and on average use it every other watering during veg 3ml per gallon . I haven't had any issues doing it this way. Cal mag eats up so much ppm.
I agree yrs ago I use FF also and always used half the dosage of what label saidWhat's up projectpanda831 ?
In regards to FF nutes. I used FF for a few years and I found using half of what they state to use gave me alot better results.
I kept getting different lock outs when I used what they recommended.
As for cal mag, I have always used 5 ml per gallon.
But may I suggest adding some aminos with the cal mag.
I use NPK IND aminos.
This will help with the uptake of the cal mag which will result in stronger stem cell walls.
Also the aminos will unlock any P in your soil. Because P gets locked up in soil real easy.
RonnieB. In regards to NPK products. I love their shit.
But I bought their individual packs of N.P.andK. not their pre mixed packs, cause I like to experiment also.
Almost everything I use now is from NPK IND. micros, humic, aminos, cal mag, silica and so on.
But I have switched to a all in one for my NPK mix.
It's called MAXSEA for flowering.
Its a 5 20 20 mix. It's also a powder like all of NPKs products.
So I'm using no liquid nutes.
I'll tell you what since I switched to NPK products my nute cost has dropped by more than half.
It's a win win.
Anyway good luck you two.
Thats awful high. I use 3ml per gallon max and after they flower i cut that back and cut the nitrogen. Calmag takes up a lot of your ec around half msybe moreI typically add cal/mag at 5ml per gallon in soil and 7ml in coco. I monitor for any visual deficiencies and add more if needed. Too much calcium will block out other important nutrients like phosphorus, so you don't want to just add a bunch thinking "well, it needs lots of calcium".
