Hey guys does anyone have any advice for me at this stage? When should I start increasing the nutrients? Also should I use Bud Candy and Big Bud as well as Hy-Pro Terra?

Hello ! You should buy a Ec pen to know exactly how you are feeding her it will change your feeding habits. You can now switch to a higher PH around 6.3 in soil because low ph helps on the Nitrogene absorption but your plant is already dark green so it is a sign of a nitrogen excess , be careful and slowly adjust the PH level. You should have already switch to the flowering feeding chart but it is not to late , even if Hy-pro terra is a one part nutrient for the full grow I think it have a too high nitrogen amount , maybe a any PK booster could help you to make the balance so bud big will help for that And bud candy is also a good additional product. And off course like every body already told you : be careful with the fan/wind. Hope it will help you :+1::grin:

Hello @ponic_farmer! First i am going to make the difference and tell you that i don't see any problem with your fan. I know these fans and i know that they are very weak. Second droopy leaves are always come from over/under water. Third i want to tell you that your plant has a typical potassium deficiency that if you don't fix it will become worst and more deficiencies will appear. A value of 0.5 ms/cm is way to low for this stage of growth. The only reason that your plant is still alive is because you use soil ( soil has some nutrients inside ). But the nutrients from your soil have been consumed by the plant and deficiencies are starting to show. At this stage of growth you need to raise your EC at around 1.3 ms/cm of which 0.4 ms/cm should be from calcium and magnesium, 0.6 ms/cm from your Terra nutrient and 0.3 ms/cm from a PK booster. You also need to raise your PH at around 6.2. Happy growing! :facepunch:

Well the only thing that i could see were the fans blowing onto your Girls... and they are blowing heavy, I would reduce the blowing volume . or try to blow indirect , or let only one blow in lower strength. So icant say anything to leavecolour or texture. to your Blooming Fertilisers....For sure can u use tham all, but like always the amount makes the poison. Bud candy is nearly sugar only... and not for the use in hyrdo..because there i s a lot of foam coming. Big bud is mostly Phosphorus and Kalium and yes you can use it.... . And to Hy-pro Terra... i wont use it during flowering... its good for vegetation stage it has 2 N, 5K, and 5 K, for flowering you need more p and k.... i would choose any flowring Fertiliser and let mix them for 2 weeks with less and less of Hy-pro -flora... OK hope i could help you

Hi @ponic_farmer! The pink grow light makes it hard for us to diagnose anything, but here are a few advices for you: 1/ there's too much wind in this room! I think you're stressing out your babies with such a powerful breeze, try to increase the distance between your fan and your plants or decrease your fan's power. 2/ they will start to ask for Phosphorous and Potassium (P+K) and you will need to stop Nitrogen intakes right after the stretch has ended. I know this is impossible in your current setup since you're using an all-in-one fertilizer, but I'd recommend to find a good PK booster with no N to make sure you're not overfeeding with Nitrogen. 3/ pH fluctuation is a good thing, if it's correctly done. You can move your solution's pH by 0.1 everytime you feed, if you're in the correct pH range (6.0-6.5). This might help the plant to handle different nutrients absorption and prevent from deficiencies. You're doing fine, I'm confident you'll be rewarded with a great yield. Keep us up-to-date, and happy growing :facepunch:

Hi there, since you have quite an intense light cycle your flower stretch will be pretty crazy, the plants will pull Cal Mag like crazy, they'll also be needing sulfur and loads of N... At this stage you're alright with the bud candy and such but it wont hurt, although mixing and matching different brands can be tricky so be careful ! i would dial back the light cycle to 18/6 but i know it s hard to do that, so that s up to you haha between week 5 and 8 the plants will enjoy more nutes so just dial that in, and make sure they have enough cal mag going into those critical weeks. I would also suggest chelation agents like acids this will help immensely especially with such a light schedule ! good luck !
