OK folks, by popular demand here's a flower series. How to get over a pound a plant? Here's how! I put these into flower 10 days ago after a veging time of 15days. System, run to waste. 25 litre, 5 gallon grow pots. Automated feed. Medium, coco substrate with added perlite and volcanic rock for airation. Pre-mixed. A Quality coco will be flushed well, buy a good one. Lighting, 1k hps's with air cooled hoods for the hot months. Ventilation, activated carbon filter by mountain air with plenty of inlets. Additives, nutrients etc, I use an organic grow and bloom nutrient. Budlink soluable silicone, an "uptake", a blend of vitamins, fulvic acid and humates and micro minerals, and a PK top-up. That's it. And every one has a reason for being there. Technique. A run to waste system is just that, it runs off the waste. It is the easiest one to use and the best to boot! I have a pot that sits in a pot that collects the run-off and that is connected to a pipe that runs out to a drain. The feed is fed by a pump in my holding tank that has a stop cock which is fed by a 44 gallon tank that sits on a stand above it. From the pump I have looped the feed around the plants and have taken my feeders off that so pressure is equal to all feeders. The pump is controlled by a repeater switch, a timmer will do. An airation stone is in each tank too. I feed every 2 hours for 55 seconds. I need a minium of 20% run-off to avoid the pots getting hot, too high in built up salts. Trial and error taught me what to feed them and when. Last feed was 50-50 grow/bloom nutrients at an EC of1.6, it's still hot here. The hotter it gets, the lower your nutrients. Like drinking scotch and coke in the sun. Lower the scotch or you'll do yourself damage in the heat. The new mix of nutrients is 100% bloom at an EC of 2.4. I'll go higher in a few days.PH of 6.5 in flower, 6.0 in veg.Of course there's silicone in there too, wouldn't grow without it! I also added a bit of omegazone, a bull kelp product which is high in auxins and up-take. Remember, 98% of a great grow is down to enviromental conditions! That tell you something? Any questions?
