pro mix growing weed

Hello Stevepmd, The easy way to understand your promix is that it is not soil as you think. It has no nutes, does not retain water like real soil. I would PH your water to 6.5 PH and flush till 6.5PH comes out.
Then water/feed with your nutes and cal-mag. PH water after all nutes added to 6.5PH and continue that based on what I have researched. So many questions about its use but very few answers. I’ve herd it used here on the forum and sure someone will jump on board to help from experience. That’s a start in a good direction . Good Growing !!

NYGC Coco: Cult Classics Coco Craziness

Before I grew in coco, I grew in ProMix in the same #5 pots (sometimes #7). I used water with a bit of Espoma organic “plant food” every other watering, and watered when the pot felt like it was getting light. Yields were about the same, but I did occasionally overwater and get wilted plants. (Too much water in the soil means the roots are in an anoxic environment and they close up and can’t absorb water, so they wilt just like if you forgot to water them!)

Good luck this forum blows!

PTGC Misfits: Queen’s Retinue – Photontek SQ300W Pro

Until this year, I grew outdoors in coco in #5 pots, and only watered once a day, so it can definitely be done. I probably gave them about a gallon a day, over about 10 minutes to make sure they were well hydrated. I never checked EC until this year. The plants grew fine and healthy, although yield was low. I also wasn’t doing much training, and I think that was the real source of my low yield, as the one cola was fine, the plant just wasted too much energy on larfy branches that should have been pruned. So, you don’t necessarily have to go to ProMix, even if you can’t do high frequency fertigation. You won’t get the full benefits of coco, but it should work. Note, if you are growing in a dry environment like Arizona, I take that all back. But if you are in a humid continental climate you should be fine.
