How do you grow big nugs?
To grow the densest, biggest buds possible, your plants need plenty of light. If you’re growing outdoors, make sure your plants receive at least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day, but 10-12 is optimal. Put your plants on a south-facing slope and they’ll get the most sun possible.
Do buds get bigger last 2 weeks?
In the last two weeks, the buds will mainly mature and grow no more in size. The white trichomes (small resin-secreting stalks/hairs) on the buds will now slowly turn brown.
Is it OK to remove fan leaves during flowering?
You can remove fan leaves during flowering in much the same way you do during veg. Prune away large leaves that are overshadowing bud sites, as well as deceased or dying fan leaves. Pruning every day can forsake your plants to a perpetual state of shock that may impede growth rather than encourage it.
Do fan leaves feed buds?
Thus the fan leaves do nothing for the buds and only absorb nutrients that could be going to the buds.
Can buds still grow without fan leaves?
New Member. The answer is no, buds will not continue to grow if you cut off the fan leaves. In fact your plant(s) will die. The leaves collect the sun/light rays and convert it into energy and that energy is what your plant(s) relies on to do everything it/they do.
Are big fan leaves a good sign?
Giant fan leaves are a sign your girls are in an environment they like- possibly just a little to high on the rh, causing them to grow larger in order to transpire more efficiently.
Can I cut all the fan leaves off?
Fan leaves are awesome, never cut them off. The plant will remove them on it’s own.
How much water does a plant need per day?
This is a little more than 1 tablespoon per day. Water use was not constant during the study; small plants used 1 tablespoon per day, while large plants used slightly less than 2 tablespoons per day. Overall, there was a good correlation between plant growth and the amount of water applied.
Should I flush my plants everyday?
It’s generally recommended to flush plants for a few days to 2 weeks. I think this is a pretty good standard to go by. Unless you’re growing in amended super soil, flushing for longer than 2 weeks without nutrients is likely to stunt growth of the buds, which we don’t want in the flowering stage!
Can I mix Coco with soil?
Coco coir, derived from the fibrous husks of coconuts and ground into fine fibers, is a great addition to soil or can also be used on its own to create a soil substitute. When creating a soil mix, you must monitor your soil to ensure you have the correct nutrients to optimize your plant’s growth.
Should you let Coco dry out?
Coco coir is a hydroponic medium. You‘ll want to manually water 1-3 times a day or set up a reservoir with a drip system. You don’t let it dry the way you do with soil. Coco will always retain at least 10% air no matter how much water you put in.
Can you overwater Coco perlite?
I recently killed 6/8 of my young plants in coco with 25% perlite by overwatering. I got cocky and just watered all 8 plants even though only 2 really felt light. I hadn’t killed a plant due to overwatering before and I’ve been growing for 5+ years now. So I can confirm that you absolutely can overwater in coco.
How often do you water Coco perlite?
The frequency of watering depends on the evaporation and the water supply in the COCO. A common rule is; one daily watering is sufficient during the first few weeks under normal circumstances; then increase up to 2 times a day; 2 hours after the lamps have been turned on and 2 hours before they are switched off again.
What is the best pH for Coco?
Acceptable pH Range for Coco: 5.5-6.5
Coco does not buffer the pH of nutrient solution as effectively as soil and therefore it is critical to set the pH of the nutrient solution inflow within the range of 5.5 to 6.5.
What pH is Coco?
pH-neutral value: Coco coir has a neutral pH range of 5.2–6.8, but you’ll still need nutrient support because this range will fluctuate over time. Learn why maintaining a balanced coco coir pH is so important here.
How do you fix high pH in coco coir?
If your runoff pH is too high or too low, you can fix pH issues easily by flushing the coco coir with properly pH‘d water. For example. if your runoff shows a high pH of over 6.2, try running the next few waterings around 5.6 to 5.7 with about 25-30% runoff and you can bring this down easily.
