Mbakini started grow question 3 years ago
Was reading that Chemdawg seems to need additional doses of Calmag. I think it may have magnesium or phosphorous deficiency. Any comments?
Ph 6.2 - PPM 1000

First week of flower.

DWC was going todo a water change and re-introduce nutes

Plants are consuming about .75 gal/day

I give mine around 4-700 as they are smaller and once they get bigger give more. So your doing good just calmag with every feeding and make sure your ph is perfect

Cal Mag with every watering. 1000 ppm is way too much, looking foward to your grow im doing Chemdawg from HSO next round.

A gradual increase in your PH from 5.8 to 6.2 is good as your plant need higher intake of different nutrients and mineral when flowering. I had found a chart which can from studies showing a different range of preferable PH level over the course of a cannabis plants life. If I find it I'll send it to you. I personally would not increase your feed over 1000ppms unless you are very comfortable increasing. Only you can know for sure how your plant is reacting to those levels but at any sign of tip burns you'll need to back off instantly.

Hi @Mbakini Nice plants mate!! I think a 1000ppm is a little a high @ this stage of flowering perhaps 750ppm would
cause less ph flucuations as your plant drinks up what it needs.
The ph is ok as long as it stays @ or below 6.1 hope this answers your question mate :facepunch:

Its best to have a range of PH because your plant absorbs different nutrients at different levels. I recommend 5.7-6.1 so she can uptake all the nutrients well. I wouldn't increase the amount you are feeding but watch the PH.

Hi there! very healthy plants you got there. About Chemdawg no extra cal mag needed. In veg time you can boost slow growing strains with cal-mag + humic acid..
I don't see any deficiancy.. keep it green :+1:

Hi @Mbakini! I think your feeding schedule is fine, maybe a bit hot for autos. To me the problem comes from your pH, it's a bit high for a soilless setup: in DWC - as in hydro - you better have a ~5.8 pH in order for the roots to manage nutrient intakes at their best. Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:
