    I tend to water every 3-4 days and water enough to get some run off. Every other day seems like alot but if its working why change it.

    I use nutes every other watering. This has been working so far and I am in my 4th week of flowering. So far so good. Are you mixing your nutes full recommend strenght? I feel that might make a difference. I went from 1/4 to 1/2 to full recommend over my first few weeks to avoid any lock out or nute burn.

    If your just entering 12/12 I would build up slowly. If you have been on 12/12 for awhile and your happy with your plants I would just keep doing what your doing. If it's not broke don't fix it. Happy plants = Happy grower

    From what I have read plants that are mostly Sativa will need more time flowering. Best thing you can do is to purchase one of the hand held scopes. Radio Shack has them on their website for $12.00. This will allow you to look at your trichomes to determine when its best to harvest.
