    Hello fellow tokers, i am running into a small issue i wanted to clarify. I am running a 45 gallon resevoir and i am using AN 3 part nutrients (grow,bloom,micro). For the veg period i just followed the nutrient calculator exactly. Now i am beginning flowering and i wanted to add Bud Candy and Big Bud to the resevoir. I also just got a PPM meter 2 days ago. I added all the nutrients to the resevoir and when i tested the PPM's it read 176 X10. Now i am guessing this means the PPM or EC is at 1700 and i was told that you shouldnt go over 1600. Now i followed the chart exactly so does this mean my water supply is starting out too high? Should i add more water to get it down around 1600? Should i just have blind faith in AN and rock the 1700 because the plants look like they have been touched by the teen aged mutant ninja turtle 2 ooze. No joke, i have been working with burmeese kush for a year now and it was a smaller plant. I took clones from the mother and put them in the HP system. These clones dont even look like the original plant. The sun leaves are almost double the size of my hands. Anyways just looking for some feedback. Thanks for reading.

    Happy 4:20!

    First off please do not use the feed charts or calculator, here a tryed and proven resipe!

    Grow 13ml per gal for 45 gal =585ml. Use all three during veg and bloom!
    Micro. Same
    Bloom. Same

    Big bud 2ml per gal for 45 gal =90ml
    B52. Same
    Overdrive same
    Sensi a veg same
    Sensi b bloom same

    This resipe will put you around 1000 ppm

    I would also suggest testing your water with your meter before you add anything to it! You will then know what you are starting with, and will then know how much nutes you actually have in there after you add them!(final PPM - Initial PPM = Nutrient PPM) ;-)

    Yah, always test out your PPM before you add anything to your water. Just saying.

    And you should check out the pH Perfect nutrients too, if you get the chance. I've been doing my research and it looks like they've even won an award. Back in 2010, sure, but I imagine they've gotten better in the years since...
