Didn't get a real feel for this as salt buildup and nutrient lockout issues stunted the resin production.

This time to the best of my knowledge we had salts buildup and nutrient lockout issues. Frustratingly the enzyme product "Enzyme Komplete" was supposed to prevent salts buildup, but obviously it was not so. I've heard it said that Botanicare can have salts buildup issues, and I can confirm, I don't think I would use it again without alternating feeding with plain water.

The end result here is that plants 1,3, and 4 are low in resin/THC. They aren't terrible but aren't great either, mid-shelf at best. Thankfully plant 2 was not only the biggest but least affected and managed to end up rather decent, borderline upper shelf.

Next grow I'm going to simplify by using General Hydroponics flora grow, bloom, and micro following a chart off growweedeasy, 4 nutrients (counting cal-mag) total sure will be nice compared to the 8 I was using this grow. Additionally it will be an auto-flower grow which will limit the time for things to go wrong, lol.
