    Exclamation can someone help me with ionic nutrients?

    hello everyone!

    I have a dwc "bubbler" and ionic nutrients by growth technology
    i don't want to give my plants nute burn so i visted thier website for a feeding chart --vvvvvvvvv--


    Ionic grow hydro soft water

    Seedlings and Clones

    EC: 1.5 mS
    pH: 5.86.2
    Change tank every 1014 days


    Make up IONIC Grow in the nutrient tank.
    Use Hard Water formulations if necessary.

    ------------------------------------------------------

    Young Plants

    EC: 1.8 mS
    pH: 5.86.2


    Maintain nutrient at around 1.8 mS with pH around 6.
    --------------------------------------------------------

    Early Flowering

    EC: 2.0 mS
    pH: 5.86.2
    Change tank every 710 days


    Make up IONIC Grow in the nutrient tank. It is a good idea to use the Grow formulation for the first week of flowering period. Then switch to Bloom.
    Use Hard Water formulations if necessary.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Flowering

    EC: 2.0 mS
    pH: 5.86.2
    Change tank every 7 days


    Make up IONIC BLOOM in the nutrient tank.
    Add IONIC BOOST at 1 ml per litre of tank volume. Repeat twice weekly
    Keep EC around 2.0 mS and pH at 6 or slightly under.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    can i use my nutrients at the strength they have suggested on thier website.
    or is this too strong a mix for cannabis to handle?

    i'm using hydroton clay pebbles and a bubbler.

    Hi Tina

    Seedlings and Clones

    EC: 1.5 mS I would start the seedling of on just water and PH. Clones i would start at 1.0EC and not what they have said.
    pH: 5.8–6.2 I would stick to 5.8PH on the dot every time.
    Change tank every 10–14 days This is fine. I used to do mind once a week


    Make up IONIC Grow in the nutrient tank.
    Use Hard Water formulations if necessary.

    ------------------------------------------------------

    Young Plants

    EC: 1.8 mS More like 1.2 - 1.4EC
    pH: 5.8–6.2 Again 5.8PH


    Maintain nutrient at around 1.8 mS with pH around 6.
    --------------------------------------------------------

    Early Flowering

    EC: 2.0 mS MOre like 1.4 - 1.8
    pH: 5.8–6.2 Still 5.8PH
    Change tank every 7–10 days


    Make up IONIC Grow in the nutrient tank. It is a good idea to use the Grow formulation for the first week of flowering period. Then switch to Bloom.
    Use Hard Water formulations if necessary.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Flowering

    EC: 2.0 mS 1.6 - 2.0EC
    pH: 5.8–6.2 5.8PH
    Change tank every 7 days


    Make up IONIC BLOOM in the nutrient tank.
    Add IONIC BOOST at 1 ml per litre of tank volume. Repeat twice weekly
    Keep EC around 2.0 mS and pH at 6 or slightly under.

    Thats the kinda levels i used to have. give or take. Depends on the strain.
    Just remember less is more.. If you over feed it will be a job to sort it, if you under feed you can easily feed them more.

    i wouldn't mind buying GHE rutrients because there are a few people on here that do. usually aquafarm/waterfarm growers

    i don't like it because there is no date on my bottle

    how long has mine been sitting around?

    there's advice against buying 1 part nutrient. ive heard that they have a certain shelf life before minerals combine making useless minerals, one's plants neither need or use

    hey tina,

    I've used ionic nutes for my last grow, and I've had respectable yields, vetran has hit the nail on the head!
    I've started this grow from seed and its only a couple of days into vegging and I've started on an EC of 0.7.
    Again depends on the strain but my white widow drank more water and ec never went up above 1.8 during later flowering!
    I will continue to use Ionic till I find my feet around hydro maybe next grow try something different!

    The man in my grow shop said ionic grow is good but the rest of their stuff is rubbish, he advises canna..

    I use ionic grow in my hempys for veg (as its cheap and i only veg a week) then canna aqua flores for flower...
    No turn left unstoned..
    ''The problem with pH is that very, very few people have the equipment or wet laboratory skills to measure pH correctly. In hydro, you can achieve "good enough" with common sense and basic meters. But soil pH is an entirely different ballgame. Hydrogen ions attach to soil particles and cannot be removed by simply passing water over the soil''.

    ive just got canna aqua vega and canna aqua flores for my dwc grow on recomendations of a few people for combination of ease of use and good yields and the fact that i used canna cocco soil and a+b for my last grow and had no complaints but i am tempted to go to ghe 3 part once i got to grips with hydro i did look at ionic but decided against it after weighing up my options otherwise vetran's guide looks spot on although personally i would let the ph rise from 5.8 to 6.0 before adjusting as the plant takes some nutes in better at the higer end although the optimum would be around 5.8
