    Default Help choosing nutes

    Right I'm getting it hopefully in next few days but could anyone tell me that what nutes should I buy. I'll be getting everything from that growshop in coolock so if here's any Irish growers then I'd appreciate your help as yous prob know best what selection they have there.

    In terms of nutes, for the first few grows, you'll want to keep it simple. Either a ONE or TWO part feed.

    I'm using Canna Aqua right now and that's a two part system.

    You fill up a container with how much water you want, add how ever much you need per liter of water of Part A and mix it in. Then add the same amount of part B (in other words equal amounts of A and B) and mix in.
    Then you can add any other additives you may want to add such as Rhizotonic etc etc until you get your desired EC and lastly adjust the PH to what / where you want it.

    My advice is to always mix up a batch of nutes 24 hours prior to using so it can mix and stabilise before you put it near any plants.
    Then if the PH / EC has changed 24 hours later, you can make final adjustments before adding to your system. I also put an airstone in my pre-mix batches during those 24 hours to keep the oxygen levels up and to help mix everything.

    Also something to consider is what type of water you will be using. If using tap water, it's a good idea to find out the hardness of your water because you can get some feeds to suit different water types e.g. hard water / soft water.

    But overall, for the first few grows, try to stick with one or two part feeds until you understand everything better.



    Hope that helps.

    Alright bro, ask for James in that shop he won't put you wrong.
    As oxy says I'd be wary with so many in such a tight space
    Pm me if you need any help I'm from the far side off the border but use the shop regularly

    Up the irons

    I use the Botana line. all natural. and that grow thing ya got I don't think will work very well. go with cocoa. start in a Dixie cup and go from there. much better results and if you have issues its usually a lot easier to fix.
