good day growers. so this new thread i will explain exactly what i do to grow a perfect healthy auto. and show that less is always best. alot of growers ask how i achive great healthy plants. so i will share with u all. to start off il just be stating what to use and when. and as time goes on pics of plants i grow and info will continue to be posted. as always all questions always welcome, always happy to help, so here we go,

the most important thing of ur grow is ur medium. this is were ur plant spends all of its life. so always do ur research. i use biobizz lightmix. absolutley amazing stuff, designed to and does keeps itself in perfect ph range. and is designed to work best with ph perfect feed. combine the 2 and magic will happen. true;)

so if u got ur biobizz lightmix ur good to go.
next u want to buy some decent fabric pots, great for a fast growing plant. great drainage and airiation to ur roots. 3 and 5 gal fabric pot will grow u a big auto;)
_20180915_153959.JPG
so u fill ur fabric pot up with biobizz lightmix. then i soak the mediun of each pot with 2., 1.5 litre bottles of water, containing 2ml of dutch pro take root and 2ml dutch pro mutli total in each bottle. so in total each pot gets soaked 3 litres;)

then drop in your bean as best suits u then into the tent, and wait for its head to pop above ground;)

all my plants get now is plain tap water when needed for the first 3 weeks of life. the soil does everything for you. in 3 weeks ul have a beautiful healthy plant for sure.
so my feed i use is ph perfect. advanced nutrients sensi grow and bloom, sensi calmag. and mollases for late bloom;)
_20180915_153835.JPG
so at 3 weeks of age my girls get there first feed of veg. 2ml of a and b sensi grow to 1.5litre of water. each plant gets its own bottle every feed time. il now feed each plant twice a week every 3 days.
and every week i bump the mls up 1 ml per week until im at 5ml of a and b.
also always plain water inbetween feeds very important for key health of ur ladies. il feed with veg until i see stretch has stopped so only about 2 weeks of veg feed then onto bloom.

when i start with bloom feed sensi bloom. straight in at 5ml of a and b. i also start with sensi calmag at 1.5ml per bottle. mix it into the feed. again feed every 3 days twice a week always plain water between feeds. keep doing this and the job is done. when u got full flowers maybe 3 week before harvest. add a few dripples of mollases here and there into the bottles of feed makes buds super frosty, works a treat.
here some pics of my current auto grow. to show how my combinations and methods grow a perfect healthy auto everytime. and prove less is always best;) the 3 small plants at the front all still on plain water;)

Thank you for your time to help me learn soil growing better. Much appreciated. I would have to switch nutrients up for this kind of grow. Using Flora trio by general hydroponics in my Dwc buckets. And in dwc ph can swing daily with the nutrient line I'm using

the change of nutes would be well worth it. ph will never be a problem for u again. iv never owned or used a ph pen. use my eyes. when i discoverd biobizz lightmix all my problems went away. i crnt stress enough how good biobizz is. happy growing ;)

Whatever the wife leaves me
For your doses and watering are those dilution rates per litre or 1-1/2 litres ( your bottle size) how much water do you give per watering?

yea mate i stick to the 1.5 litre bottles through the full grow.and for watering. oviously at the beginning they dont drink much. i let them dry in between waterings. so a sprinkle here and there when top layer gets dry. by week 4 all my girls have solid root structure, so will drink a 1.5 litre in a morning. and on an evening. so 3 litre a day from week 4 plus on the watering. when feeding day. they will only get 1 bottle of feed so if morning will get fed there 1.5 litre. then on evening of that day will get 1.5 litre water;`) happy growing;)

Sounds allot easier and less maintenance than hydroponics. I have to be checking everything daily such as ppm, water temp, ph. It's more work this way. Do you use tap water throughout the whole grow? Know what your taps ph is at? My tap is 150ppm and I have a ro system that brings it to 0ppm.

I have read online the advanced nutrients ph perfect line is meant for reverse osmosis water. That's why I was asking questions about it. I use a ro system cuz I read it's also better than tap. I start off with 0ppm water so I know no chlorine or chloramine or whatever else the water company treats our water with is in my water, it gets removed. So then I have to add calcium and magnesium to ro water first before my base nutes which I currently use General hydroponics Flora trio. Have you ever used flora trio also is another question I have? And why do you choose to use tap water over pure ro water? You ever tried a ro system and just not like it or your tap worked just fine so you never bothered? I would like to make the switch to advanced nutrients because it is ph perfect. Don't have to mess with ph at all like I do daily in dwc hydro

Thats what it is for me...we have an artisian well and i am sure it has a ton of nutrients in it....but it grows fantastic plants, so for me it would be crazy to change what works very well.
