Grew like a champ! I think I could do better with the grow next time, particularly in watching my nutrient level more closely. Plant did well considering my mistakes.

Love this stuff! Improves the flavor so much! I use 5ml/gallon in veg and 10ml/gallon bloom. Tent smells awesome and buds have amazing aftertaste.

Thanks, Hydroguard! You made us one happy family!

Plant was pretty normal in terms of harvesting. I was hoping for a bigger yield...but I say that after every grow :joy: Got some good smelling bud off this plant. I’ll try it again in a few months. Really like FastBuds’ offerings. I’ll update with smoke report in a week or two.

I have to agree that this seems excessively slow to flower and growth in general seems very slow for a hydro set up. I think you need more root development, I'd suggest you re design your hydro set up.

@Freddd, my setup is a constant improvement, but there's not much to it. A bucket with a lid and top feed line from the reservoir. There are tons of other factors that could cause slow growth, and redesigning the setup seems like the last. It's cold here in Chicago, 70 in day and 60 at night. That could cause a lot of issues. I'm struggling with maintaining humidity in the seasonal change. My nutrient level was likely too high during the grow...that can lead to slow growth. There are lots of factors -- but I'm not sure what a redesign would look like exactly. There are plenty of hydro growers using buckets and net pots, so it seems unlikely that the system itself is at fault.

I can see that you have enough experience to benefit from home made design. Check out my OG Kush grow for some photos of what I built, which is designed to keep the rootball huge and springy with lots of fine hairs. My first auto grow here was just a tub on top of another tub, super simple, the roots are in a small mesh pot and they live in the top tub, they drain to the bottom and get pushed back up.

Second set up has a separate reservoir but this time the roots fill a pot then emerge into a shallow pool. I'd ditch all those nutrients and just use GH only. You shouldn't need any calcium or magnesium either, it's all in the nutes already. You're using hydro so you can take advantage of the control you have.

Let me be clear, the hydro in a 5 gal with net pots going straight into the reservoir *do* work, and they can work well, I've seen it. But there's also so much that can go wrong and when it does go wrong it goes very wrong. You cannot get simpler than what I've designed, for a big root ball that is.

I would also respectfully suggest that you can go much much more aggressive on the defoliation. I mean strip those leave all off, you won't believe the difference it makes.

@Freddd, I appreciate the input. Let me look over your stuff and get back to you. I'll likely have questions. :pray:

@Freddd, not gonna lie - that hydro setup is badass. There’s never a lot of standing water in your top reservoir, is there? Just constant recirculating?

I started with GH and originally switched to AN for the pH balancing and because they’re supposedly superior. Really wondering if I should go back to GH.... I got a good yield my first grow with it, but messed up other areas. Was too ignorant to realize it was me, perhaps. Are you using any GH supplements or simply grow micro bloom? Are you using silicon, floralicious, nectar, any of that?

How often are you defoliating? I have been trying weeks 1 & 3 of Bloom. Also, why do you prefer to leave the larger fan leaves on the bottom? Any reason you didn’t defoliate those?
