Day 41 and still not much to report, Things are starting to swell up a bit and they should be finishing up in the next 3 weeks or so.
Since there isn't much to report and this diary was late into the grow; I thought I would give a little detail on how things started, what I'm using and how often.
Beans were soaked in water for a few hours and placed between damp paper towels in gallon size freezer bag inflated and sealed. Exchanged air twice daily. When they popped and displayed taps they were placed in pre-soaked 1.5 RW cubes and planted in 32 oz cups with coco. Absolutely no nutes for the first 2 weeks, ever.
Using Coco Bliss coco. It works for me and 10 lb blocks average about $15 on amazon but I have seen them drop under $12 once.
Mykos is used on all planting and transplanting and that is the only time it is used.
My base nutes (Advanced pH perfect Sensi Coco grow and bloom) are used with a diluted strength every watering. I don't track my ppm's. I start out with very diluted nutes and gradually increase strength until I start to see a little tip burn, back it off a little and that's where they stay. These get 5ml every watering or 1/4 recommended strength roughly 3 times per week.
Supplements are added with every watering when needed. When using RO I use Cal Mag Plus, when using tap water Epsom salts.
Veg: Myco+ and Cal Mag Plus or Epsom weekly. Silica and Azos every other week.
Flo: Flower Fuel, Molasses and Cal Mag Plus or Epsom weekly. Silica and Azos every other week.
I also use Advanced pH down. My RO is 6.5 and tap averages 7.5 so really no need for pH up in my situation.
At reduced strengths like I'm using the pH buffer in the nutes is not enough to correctly buffer my water.
Basically I try to keep things pretty simple and it seems to be working okay.
Until next time. Peace, UT
