Hempy bucket nutrients first grow
You can use straight water at bottom Rez when seedling is barely rooted in plug .
As long as plug straight hydrated . the tap root will shoot straight to bottom quickly .
Cotyledon leaves have Nutes stored in those leaves to Start growth.
A light mix of feed at about an 1/8 strength will work too as well as something like Thrive Alive Red with some B vitamins in the water REALLY gets it going . Once roots hit Zrez , it will explode in growth.
I use 2 of the smaller cup size of that spoon it comes with .
You have to mix well to break up powder.
You can also aerate this mix ( with an Airstone ) too.
PH at 5.9 to allow for minor drift.
I use tap water . nothing else but ph down.
Feed / water / feed / water . repeat
Fill Rez EVERYTIME with runoff to flush salt and refresh Rez .
Plants will drink quite fast .
I am every OTHER DAY with either water or feed.
You can go 100% perlite or 3:1 perlite / vermiculite mix
Yes the beauty of Hempy . whether 1 gallon or bigger , you can totally tell dry weight.
Plants are highly aerated in these mixes. the addition of vermiculite keeps some moisture at root level but also dries pretty quick. A simple feed / water / feed will keep things running smooth as Rez is refreshed and cleared of built up salt.
Simple drain to waste scenario. I grow for personal stash but even the lousy 1 gallon kid sand buckets give me plenty of bud and bigger plants than compared to the soil containers I run.
It’s cleaner , buds are more fragrant , simple feeding , fast growth . what’s not to like ?
You can run a single 5 gallon ( Lowe’s bucket ) and get a fucking tree !
Some growers have implemented other grow tactics like spray rings , air stones in Rez , etc.
but it is NOT NECESSARY.
Another plus is that you can pull cut rootball out of bucket , rinse it over say a black construction pan and reuse perlite . I reuse a lot of the used perlite and add hydrogen peroxide to water bath to CLEAN IT before re-use.
Tip : Don’t overthink nute choices . simple 2 part mix or mega crop.
No molasses , no bud blasters , unicorn cum , hobo sweat or multi bottles .
Starting my first grow with Mephisto Double Grape, seed placed in Root Riot cube placed in center of straight pearlite medium. I want to use KISS method of…
Nutes for a Hempy Bucket
I am trying a hempy bucket for the first time. The plant has been going a couple weeks, and I decided to read up about nutes for it.
One guy said that organic nutes could rot, and that you should use inorganic. I have been using General Organics, and they are partly organic.
So now I am looking for nutes..
I could use some suggestions. Would Grow More Sea Grow work? I have a lot of cal/mag, so I can add that along with the Sea Grow.
I only grow one plant at a time, and I grew more than I use before I got the hempy bucket. So those big bottles would just go bad. But I can get the General Hydroponics Flora Series Performance Pack, and those are smaller bottles.
This grow I am using Roots with some extra perlite in it. Next grow will be different. Prob half coco, half something else, soil or perlite.
Growing a AP Yodas Dragon Breath. I run it over 90 days, age it for several months, which mellows it out, and I really like it. It’s too buzzy for me earlier.
