I want to point out that this nutrient schedule is the suggested One Tank formula from GreenLeaf. I am simply ramping up the nutrients over time to their chart levels. I am hopeing to perhaps match the plants needs as they happen and not just slap a new level on them because it is week 4.

I have spent many hours on the One Tank Formula PPM calculator and I am convinced I can grow start to finish with just the two parts and the other stuff I like besides the salts.

Starting Germination. I usually drop an extra seed or two with autos to make up for any no shows but with these high quality breeders and fresh seed I will take a chance. If one does not pop there is plenty of time for a do over.

It is not likely that you would get a good mix of nutrients at .35g for Part A and .06g for Part B. in 1 gallon of water. I mixed a gallon at 6g of A and 10g of B, 1.6g Kelp Then I added the concentrate to a new gallon to 160 PPM and PH 5.5. This should give me a better chance at balanced nutrients.

Soak the A-Ok starter cubes for 30 minutes and plant the seeds.

5 Days since the seed drop and 4 have germinated but I do not like the look of the Green Crack and restarted that one a Pineapple Poison and the Red Panama. The second two might just be slow but I want to get going on this grow with seeds that are ready to run!

I did end up with 100% germination but the Green Crack is struggling with bad cotyledons and the Panama Red has no head? It looks like I may have jumped the gun starting the second Pineapple Poison as the first has now germinated.

The first three girls to pop are getting transplanted today. The procedure for PH correction and soaking of the Hugo 6" rock wool cubes is well documented in my previous grows so I will skip that here.

I put a teaspoon of Mykos in the hole wet it with the nutrients from the soak. Push the starter plug in gently and re-wet it all apply the FloraFlex cap and algae shield then into the cage and into its home!

The transplanted girls do not get fertigated now for 9 days as the roots become well established in the cube. The cube holds just under a gallon of water and they will be at about 35% of that after 9 days.
