    Default EC question

    Hands up I been just adding ml per litre and increasing it as I feel they need it. Laziness and pissed off having gone through two ec pens. Anyway got a bluelab now and plants are looking better for it. Currently got them on 1.1ec during veg with canna a and b. I just wonder what do people get up to during flower. I know plants will be different but roughly. I have used a ec pen before but messed up so many plants not ec related may I add. It's been a while since I've got plant a into flower and used an ec pen.

    I'll increase as they need it but just wondering roughly as a guide do people tend to reach during flower.

    My base Ec is 0.6 and I never go over 1.1 in total throughout the grow

    I found 1.0 for late veg upto 1.4 max in flower was good for most strains. The only time I exceeded 1.4 was with the incredible bulk strain which wanted Ec 1.6

    My base EC is .5 & I struggle to go over an EC of 1.0 most grows. I've had as little as 0.7 & as much as 1.4 across all my coco grows... but I'm normally between 0.8 & 0.9

    Cheers guys, my ladies are currently on 1ec ignoring the background of 0.6. My friend also said he doesn't go above 1.4 suppose that depends on the plants though. Have always grown in coco and always used a ec pen other than past 2 grows and messed up a lot so it's been a while lol.

    sounds like they're loving it at that mate sometimes especially with feed less is more buddy. to get it spot on is when everything comes together....environment, feeding, ph, lighting, veg time, perfect pot size for more feedings per day etc etc you'll know when you hit everything and see crazy results, sometimes easier growing the same strain a few times or have a mother and grow clones. over and out sorry for the rant lol

    with a background of 0.8 I've been as high as 2.3 during veg and as high as 2.6 during flower. I've seen no ill effects in my crops from those EC readings, no burnt tips or any other symptoms of over feeding.
