    Default New to hempy

    Hi all,
    I've been here a few grows now had some success and some sorrow but all in all I'm still happy to be one of the many canna growers out there.
    I have 2 proper grows under my belt. Both in soil.
    (first good harvest & second was hermying bastards x6)
    I've tried DWC and RDWC both failed.
    Now I'm onto HEMPY !!!!

    I have 2 clones in 6 Ltr pots.
    I made the hole at the level it took 1.5 ltrs to fill to.
    Filled the pot with perlite up to the hole then filled with 80/20 perl/verc.
    Is this correct as I think it is?

    yes i think you did a great job with your hempy m8 pat you self on the back
    ill look forward to seeing you coco hempys what nutes are you using for them?
    if you havent got the airpots yet think about fabric pots im trying them now and they are much better for watering and work the same but there is a advantage which is they can run in higher temps over any other pots the root zone will stay cooler and they can be watered from the bottom as extra water if sat in a saucer , this means you can get a little more time between watering the one we have here are called root pouchs , the rate of growth is very good in them

    Started with canna coco a+b as a veg nutes.
    So far so good.
    I got some U-GROW 11L compressed coco bricks.
    I mixed a bucket up with 2ML coco a+b and 2ML hygrozyme to it.
    PH6. And EC1.8 (1.8 including background EC) so EC1.1
    I then soaked 1/2 a brick and potted my mothers into 2L drink bottles adapted to hempy with a hole an inch from the bottom.

    Apart from coco a+b that all I have, apart from what I've already got.
    Was thinking of laying out the £100 odd for the canna range.
    (rhizotonic, cannazyme and boost.)
    Anything else I'm gonna need in your opinion?
    Or not bother with????
    I've also looked at the advance nutrients! What's your opp on these.

    I know you use home made teas and stuff.
    I'm not going that way yet but any shop bought stuff you can recommend would help me out.

    Will start a diary as soon as I'm able to use the tent again.

    canna are good nute the only reason i dont now use them was the mg and cal def i always got if i had use the softwater ones im sure they would of been better and on reading the canna site they say dont use hw nutes unless you ec is over 0.7 mine was 4.5 so that is where my problems lay and i think many others get the same


    im using the gold range the one or the two part both are good but ive not flowered with the one part yet but have with the two part

    i use the gold a and b grow and flower 15 quid per set i think
    add27 grow all through the grow, ive not got the flower add27 , its called add 27 cos they say 27% more can be done ! umm not sure on that lol
    and silca

    that what i used for a whole grow and they have been great you dont need a pk booster so you save there and if you do use one you need to dail back the base nutes

    ive just got the zone and it stabiles the ph big time not sure if i like that yet or not
    with out the zone the ph in dwc was setg at 5.5 every day and it would go up to 6.2/3 i wouldnt leave it there for tow days then set it back to 5.5 i liked the range it covered

    since adding the zone at 0.3ml per l (a little goes a long way) the ph stays where i set it the zone is not good if you want to run any bennys as its a steriliser as well

    ive using the full range (bar the add 27 flower) for a coco air pot grow now in my micro cabs and it seems damn good so far im just starting to flower now


    the max is the same as the add27

    and ive also got the liquid light ive not used it enough to say if its any good

    so i think you can grow with

    a and b gold
    silica
    add27 (get the flower one) i will next time and not the veg one)
    zone if you want it and you dont use any bennys

    thats all thats needed

    Great stuff forest cheer,
    The 27 stuff sounds good but with no proven results I'm not going to get it yet. Hehe
    Gonna stick with what I've got for flower:
    Coco a+b
    Hygrozyme
    Monster bloom
    Canadian superior pot ash
    And some Epsom salts for the Mg diff around week 3/4 of flower.
    Have not yet measured my Ph run off.
    Should I???? I'm still in veg????
