Im using a soiless 50/50 perlite vermiculite. The weigh it and water method works for me. Once my 3 gallon pots are full of water (about 1gal), it takes about a week for me to rewater with 1/2 gallon. I stop when the tiniest bit runs out. They get drier with my 1000w over my 400w, faster of course. I'm no pro, but sounds to me like every other time for nutes if you aren't watering until it runs all the nutes out the pots. Of course perhaps nutes, water, water, nutes; depending on the ferts you use. Im going organic earth juice (doesnt burn) so I'll go every other time. When they go to flowering, or growing like mad, perhaps nutes each time. Then 2 wks before harvest....none! Always monitor your ph of water going in on soiless.
Anyhow, ur babies look really good, don't over-mother them!

As always Im a fisherman! Fishing for rep that is!! Browse my fictitious journals should you like to!
Anything I type is fictional and completely false, to make me seem cooler to the hippies
Ok if it takes a week to dry out always water with nutes because your going to give your plant enough food for the week and enough water. If your worried about build up flush the soilless once a month. I Water twice a week so i mix a half strenght 3 part nute mix by GH.
Dude thanks for adding to this thread. it's been over a month since anyone has posted anything. I DO appreciate u taking ur time to help! My hydro store guy had said the same thing, as far as wat u said about feeding them. He claims he waters them everyday! But he does 1/2 feed, 1/2 feed, water. The only reason I know ur not him is because he's always trying to convince me to go with Technaflora products, instead of my Dutch Master Gold(LMAO). The grow is coming to an end, though. I added 2 quarts of Clearex solution, then finished the watering off with Final Phase solution. I only have 1 plant to start flushing on next watering. Also, I doubt I'll ever do a Soilless Soil grow again. I just went out yesterday, and bought me a Botanicare 4x4 tray, and Botanicare 40 gallon res w/ lid(along with some other cheap stuff, dude was sellin). For my mothers..... YES! But not for flowering. I had NO problems during Veg, They looked BEAUTIFUL, then a week is when the symptoms started, and ALL the plants, started gettin effected. I tried everything, and never REALLY figured it out. But it's almost time for the chop. Today I chop the Chiesel down. I kinda chopped 1/2 of her down within the last 2 weeks, cause there is no bud around my way. And I needed something to blaze! And it tastes GREAT! Smooth, but very pungent taste. It's actually a kind of disgusting taste, though it tastes soooo freakin good. Let's put it this way, if it steak tasted that way, I would be a vegetarian. But it's ok if I'm smoking the same nasty taste. Go Figure!

You do just do it in promix. The peat holds water alot better. I use diamond nectar, karboboost, kushie kush,rhinoskin, dry koolbloom and GH 3part flora. hyrdoboost and 10-30-20. Soilless is foolproof
