Ever tried the Ionic nutes? it's just one bottle and seems work fine.
Nope, I've only used the AN pH perfect stuff... Do you have to check/adjust pH with those nutes?

Good to know. I had not switched to the coco version yet and now I won't thanks to your experience.
Yeah the regular Sensi line works great with coco anyway... I picked up the coco version to try out just because I ran out of the regular bloom... I thought all their products were safe to use with any hydro system but I guess not this stuff.

Stellar info...... Self-inflicted pain :slap:
Cheers Corgy, oh and BTW that tip you mentioned about using a syringe to flush the lines works great. :thumbsup:
how is the pH perfect part working with them being 2 different pH ranges hans?
I didn't bother to check the pH actually, I figure it won't make much difference since the regular Sensi nutes were always pH'ing to around 5.8-5.9 anyways.

Day 64
Alright bit of an overdue update been really busy lately... ended up chopping the RP on Monday, not overly happy with how that one turned out... I'll get the final harvest and bud pics of that up later this week though. For now I've got some pics of the Gorilla Glue, these buds have put on some serious weight since last update... Probably some of the fattest buds I've had and crazy frosty as well, they are literally sticky as glue. ;) Really my only complaint with this one is it's been a constant struggle trying to keep the branches from falling over, I've got almost every branch tied up but they still just keep flopping all over the place... She's getting pretty close to the finish now anyway, I'll probably start the flush in a few days then chop next weekend.

Great looking glue Hans! She's stellar!! Great trich profile to boot! :thumbsup: Bonus!

Question...When the rez dried, did you just run hot water through the line? or Better yet, How did/do you clean your lines out?
I wouldnt say that it was the drip clean that caused the gum up, but the drying of the lines that could have done it. If your rez hadn't dried up, you might have been in good shape. My rez was bone dry this afternoon,but my trays were full of feed water still but now I will be checking the trays later tonight. 4 gallons of feed in 2.5 days with my 2 gals!! :eyebrows:

Thanks @briman , yeah really impressed with this strain.

Not sure if you saw my post the other day... think I figured out what the issue was. Yeah it's best not to let the res and lines completely dry up between fillings but I had flushed them out good with hot water after the first time they clogged up so that wasn't my issue.
Just a bit of an informative update today... This week I had both valves get clogged up again. :nono: Having just cleaned and flushed everything last weekend I knew there was something not mixing well in my res... I had noticed I've been getting a lot more sediment build up as well. Since I've only changed/added a few things for this grow I was able to figure out what the problem is, the Sensi Boom Coco, specifically the Part A is definitely the culprit... To be sure the last res I made up I switched out the Coco Bloom Part A with the Sensi Grow Part A (which actually has less N than the bloom...:confused1:) and there's no sediment build up this time so it appears the Sensi Coco version isn't good to use in a hydro type of system. :shrug:
Have you been cleaning/flushing your valves and lines regularly or you able to make it through a grow without doing that using the drip clean?

I made it through my whole last grow without clogging, but I was filling that thing up when it got down to the top of the pump!! I too have been busy this week and let the rez go dry today. It worked out in my favor, as I was going to transition to bloom nutes anyway. I just tossed 4 gallons of bloom in the rez and I'll check it all out tomorrow night after some family time, but this run, these plants are drinking faster that the first run and I really need to be on it a little more. It is really easy to set it and forget it, once things are dialed in!:biggrin: All a guy would need is a couple mini cameras, one for the tent and one for the rez to check things out on a smart phone, then there would be no need to even unzip the tent until harvest!!:thumbsup:

I just hit day 20 and it's hard to believe that in 44 days I might have something that resembles these pics. They are beautiful Hans.
