    Default Answered: Overdrive + canna a&b

    Okay, i have big bud, pk 13/14 + canna coco a+b, i'm thinking of replacing my PK13/14 with overdrive, but the PK ratio is massively different, can advanced nutrients be used with canna coco a+b base nutrients?

    Also, I'm really confused with the advanced nutrients base nutrients, i'm guessing i would need sensi grow a+b, as well as sensi bloom a + b, and a week after flip, change to the bloom base nutrients?

    My problem with that, is right now, as well as buying other stuff, i don't want to be over buying too much, and much less under buying.

    I am unsure of the dilution ratio for AN base nutes, so how much do you think i would need for say, 4 plants, given around 1-2L a day each, with roughly 8 week veg + 8 week flower?, so i know how much to buy really, thanks.

  2. "PK13/14 is meant to be given as a one hit deal, during week 6. This makes it a late bloom PK booster.
    Overdrive is not just for extra P & K, it also contains stuff like amino acids, which help nutrient uptake and growth enhancers.
    Bud Candy is a waste of money, it is just to add flavour. I am sorry, but I want my bud to taste of bud, not a chemical enhansement.
    If you are in coco, you can use AN Sensi grow or bloom at the appropriate time.
    I am on record as being abig fan of AN Sensi, probably should get sponsorship by AN.
    However, I am using Plagron coco nutes in half my coco grow, Canna coco in the other half and none using AN Sensi.
    I use Big Bud and Overdrive with both these nutrients at the appropriate times.

    I have been experimenting trying to lower the EC's as much as the plants will allow and am now down to an EC of 1.2 in full bloom.
    This is made up from around 1.75ml per l of Plagron or Canna A & B, plus 1ml per l of Big Bud and 1ml per l of Overdrive when they are used.
    The EC is adjusted back to the 1.0 in early flower and 1.2 in mid/late flower by adding water.

    The last 2 harvests I have had did not even use Overdrive but was still over 15oz yield from a 400W light, ran by a total novice. Room setup is more or less perfect though.

    Pk13/14 is an early flower booster, providing a kick up the arse for the plant to get going

    Overdrive is a late flower booster, designed to give your plants what they need for an extra push at the end

    Not one or the other...but both

    Can't comment on advanced nutes as I don't know fuck all

    Haven't got a clue mate, just use normal pk from canna if you can't find it (or tomorite iv proved it works)
    Iv just had a look on their site and can't find anything labelled as pk

    Me neither, and their basic all inclusive pack consists of Big bud, sensi grow a+b, bloom a+b, overdrive and sometimes bud candy... so i'd assumed that the overdrive was the PK13/14 equivelant, but i did take a look at the PK ratio, and with it being HUGELY different to pk13/14 i did have suspicions, which i then passed down to that it works with the bloom a+b and gets the right ratios from there, hence why i asked if i can use it with canna a+b.

    So, big bud, overdrive + pk13/14 can be used together (obviously not at the same time)

    Hi mate.... As soon as I see buds I'll hit them with half strength for the first week & then full strength for 2 weeks with great results.. Also pk 13/14 is supposed to according to canna be used at week 5 or 3 weeks before finish (only) I know people on here that use it all through flower..

    My ec is also 2.2 & the plants look great so far...
