I gave Critical water today (5 days earlier i fed her), 3 litres 7.4 ph plain water for her 12 littre pot, about 50 ml runoff 6.6 ph 780 ppm, when last feeding was 2000 runoff with 800 ppm nutemix.
So im guessin some good amount were digested by this time and with todays corrected ph.. how about feeding next time?
Smells great, im sleeping with the box in the room, i like when im sitting with laptop and outtake fan makes the air flows right to my nose))im getting almost high))
heres the light structure by the way)).. its simple, heatsinks already got holes for screws and wires. just glue a chip with glue grease and choose if you need lens or reflector, i chosed lens cuz it covers chip, it has rubber base which sealing and protects from all types of dirt or humid.. @Sunshine

Try it at 800ppm and check the run off then you can up it or drop it next feeding :)

Good choice 👍
(63 days it was shipping to our country!)
Wowsers!!! That's an incredibly long time, I wonder why it takes such a long time? I'm sure in the end your buddha like patience will be well rewarded 🌞

@Sunshine got it doc, you mean 800 ppm nutemix or runoff?))
Im also wondering why is shipping to slow, but as i saw in tracking package came from Georgia republic, so i assume it was other countries before Georgia on the way, by the way they legalized MJ not long ago...

one more thing, how you think ph changes can effect soil, microrganisms and plant?
In organic growing we rely on humates, microorganisms, dolomite lime and mycorrhizae to do all of the leg work/buffering so there's no need to adjust ph.
Adding diluted ph chemicals (up/down) to the soil can't be good for the microherd but in inorganic growing this isn't a major concern.
How's the Critical coming along by the way? she starting to fatten up?

@Sunshine so you once said biobizz isnt organic, and i also have a mycorhizae in the soil, i hope ph down/up wouldnt bother it and all the biosystem of the soil? and you think biobizz can bother?
I also have some unstability with light hours for blueberry and other phototype plant... she started to show pestels few days ago. So if im givin longer then 12 hours for her can it bother her? i mean can she become a hermy because of light schedule changes?

Critical starts fating yeah! i turned on the 6500k lamp so its 90 wats now.. but the box is open cuz its more then 5 plants .. so its a lot of light leak.. ((

Biobizz is organic but not my preferred method as there is a lot of scope for human error (over/under), plants are better at feeding themselves than we are at feeding them. This is why I prefer to add everything to the soil and avoid using ph up and down.
Having said that many growers achieve outstanding results with the biobizz range 🌻
One or two minor changes to the light cycle shouldn't cause hermy unless the plant/cross is predisposed to the condition, constant changes to the cycle over a period of time is much more likely to trigger the survival response.

@Sunshine I'd love to grow without any ferts, i like how no till method works, but i couldnt find all stuff needed.. If you can share a list of what you use for your mix it will be great! i could add it to the soil im using now, and just reuse it so its get better and better with the time as wine. just need to find all the components.

The below ingredients form the backbone of the mix, you can add lot's of other things to improve it further but as a minimum the below works well.

Sunshines (Basic) Soil Mix ™ 🌞
  • Fish blood and bone (about 8 tablespoons per 20l/5gal)
  • Quality organic compost
  • Vermiculite (15% of mix)
  • Perlite (25% of mix)
  • Kelp meal (4 tablespoons per 20l/5gal)
  • Mycorrhizae (add to planting hole so it contacts roots when transplanting or bury in soil near to where the plants roots will be)
  • Dolomite lime (4-6 tablespoons per 20l/5gal)
Other useful ingredients are vermicompost/worm castings, coco (10-20%) and biochar (10%). There are lots of other things you can add to further improve your soil such as rock dust (gypsum/basalt), shell meal, alfalfa meal etc. I'd recommend having a good read of the soil mixes in the organic grow faq section to get a good feel for the common ingredients.

Doing a simple compost tea once a run also helps the bio activity of the soil and gives the plants a real boost 🌻

It looks more like toxicity (too high ppm's) than heat stress on the critical from the pics. How far is the cob from the top of the plant and does it feel hot/burn/uncomfortable if you put your hand there? 💡

@Sunshine awesome thank you! I always doing some compost tea for them, what type of compost you think works better? I made some wormcastings and added some biobizz nutes as it got molasses there)) and add some humus.. after 3 days i sprayed it, i want to try to feed them but im not sure about ratio (water/compost)
There are a lots of ancient techniqes that i interested in.. composts and all that.. got to do a lot of research on this amazing microworld theme.. the main thing is to grow our soil, then it gives us btfl plants!
if there's some useful info on how all life going in the soil i will appreciate!

@Sunshine no, its not to hot as cobs are cool with that as we know) 30 sm from top. actually you right, as the new leaves on the top looking good, so its toxicity. hand feels warmth but its ok i thing, enjoyable warmth)) .. also fan works good all day.. so good airflow between top and cob..

Biochar, mycorrhizae and good tea made with excellent homemade compost or wormcastings is the key to amazing living soil 🌞
Also living mulch (green manure) and mulch in general is definitely also worth looking into ;)

@Sunshine thanks bro! i'll do a research on that, i also wanna try mushroom compost and seaweed..

I fed Blueberry today. First i gave phed water 7.4 (as the soil drops down to 0.7) about 1.2litres,
then nutes with 7-7.4 ph with 900 ppm, 1.5 litres
1st runoff check was 6.9 ph, 1000ppm
2nd - 6.5+ ph, 1200 ppm
3rd - 6.5+ph, 1400 ppm..

Much better then previous feeding with 2000 ppm, but seems its a little high runoff ppm?
