    Yep what Luke said. Their out for quick cash and don’t care about quality. They generally pull early, and dry the fastest possible resulting in chlorophyll not being broken down and they sure as hell don’t care about curing. A lot of them will go way above the recommended feeding schedule as well. They are generally the commercial pig farmers of pot.

    I agree ... To each their own ....

    When I " used " to use FF products , I HAD to flush that shit , cuz they are salty ass nutes.
    It ruined my smart pots .....

    GH in soil containers , just did a lighter feed at last week of feed and let it go until harvest.

    Hempy grows ( perlite ) I would give a WATER feed only at last week before , then cut the bitch. That was about as clean of a run as it gets . Drain to waste .

    Last Tip :
    Point your ass at the Dominate Cola and blast a shart at her ....
    Makes Terpy ass weed !

    If they didn't start to fade then there was lots of nutes in the medium (I'm guessing you were in soil?).

    I just try to feed them what they look like they want...slowly build up during veg and flower and then back em off as they near the end...But I rarely feed full strength except maybe for a week or two in the middle of flower.

    I never stop giving nutrients. When I harvest I am down to 1/4 of what I used during mid bloom. That.s when I start tapering off. I grow in coco and because you never want to starve your plants feeding till the end is necessary.

    If you're growing in soil, giving just water at the end is perfectly acceptable because the soil is still going to continue to break down and provide nutrients.

    No that was the weird part

    Although they where bigger plants but not bigger then others ?

    In a homemade aero/dwc unit.

    Most of the time i get fade in two weeks but one time it just kept going and going i know at least for 3 weeks then i said fuck it and clipped em lol

    But i didnt take any notes at the time

    Most dispensary weed is crap. I've been to dozens in Oregon and Washington. Much of it is grown outdoors. It's rare to come across anything that even comes close to what I can grow on my worst harvest.

    I grow in coco and before that I was doing flood and drain in hydroton. I use dry chemical salts. The end product is exceptional. But I run low PPM's.

    As Lucky Luke stated, the weed was likely harvested too soon.
