    Default Wilma 4 pot 18l watering schedule

    Hey guys, I've just put 3wk old plants which have been topped twice into my new 18l wilma system. Have got them on vitalink hydro max at ec 1.0
    Watering schedule has been every 6 hours but started to notice bigger leaves looking a bit cabbagy if that makes sense. Also a few lower three fingered ones going yellow. I was starting to think over watering.now I'm not so sure.what you guys think?
    Lumi 315w cdm and 22deg 63%humidity
    Never had this problem with smaller pots. Do they hold on to more water or less? Clay pebbles btw
    the bigger leaves look almost as though they have too much water in them but I could be wrong

    Hello mate I used to either feed 15 mins per hour or constant with clay pebbles.they don’t hold much water. Most I’ve gone is 15 mins every 2 hours.

    Nah man that's far too much watering. Have a gander at my other 4 in 11l pots with watering every six hours. image.jpg
    I've not seen a healthy plant yet that's been given anything more than every four hours. But hey I'm no experienced grower like some.
    Here's a cpl pics with lumi green light as lights are off just now. Maybe I'm just too ready to diagnose lol but maybe a few of you pros will see what I'm talking about.lower bigger leaves are slightly cabbagy, like holding onto too much water. Maybe just me tho

    Looks like you can’t go to far wrong with a wilma then mate with the amount of feed schedules we’ve used between us !
    Dont think leaves look to bad mate prob just monitor them for a few more days and see if it gets worse unless someone else can recognise a problem. I always fed that amount with my wilma never had any over or under water problems. Hopefully it sorts itself mate Cos your other ones are looking good

    Here are 7 healthy looking plants (slightly heavy on N in a few places) on continuous feed in clay pebbles in a 8 pot Wilma. About 6-7 weeks in veg. I lost a young plant early in the grow from only watering 15 mins every 6 hours. Just shrivelled up and gave up on life lol RIP! 😕
    Ex nihilo nihil fit!

    Hmm that's an idea I suppose. Black drippers on continuous feed. Kinda EC were you doing?
    Here's pics with lights on

    Nice one noob nice plants mate don’t look bad on continuos eh stoopy
    Depending on your background ec you’ll want to go maybe 0.4 above that mine is 0.7 out the tap so I go 1.1 ish to start.
    Then ramp it up as they get bigger.
    Good luck

    Look damn good mate. Think I'll hang on and try and suss this out though.ive dropped EC back to .7 (0.0 out tap here) & will keep watering at every 6 hours. Maybe just a tad heavy on nutrients. Unless anyone else have suggestions

    I'm using the blue flood drippers 😄

    Started on only ph'd water (5.6 running up to 6.0) for two weeks and then upped to 0.2 ec. I'm now on 0.8 ec. Plants are loving it but I have a sneaky Chocolope in there amongst the Gorilla Glue and she's not liking it so I'm dropping the feed to about 0.5 for the next couple of days. I plan on flipping this weekend...

    Guys if any of you guys have drooping 'wet,bubbling kinda leaves, check you're not giving them too much feed at each feeding time. Look at result in pic below,after going from 12mins every 6hours to 4mins every 4hours(I have larger pump so most I usually have to give even in flower is 10 to 12mins at a time).(so take size of pump into consideration and compensate)
    Anyway after I was on here last I decided to look online about how plants use the feed and oxygen etc. OXYGEN!!!! that was where I was going wrong.18l pots and clay pebbles like lots of little regularish feeds instead of longer spaced out ones from what I gather. To do with the amount of oxygen they're getting in each feed and it making the plant last til it's next feed.
    Anyway,as I said,good news for my plants.
