@spab, sorry to hear about your problems man, and no I haven't heard of this product. I'll look around for something you might be able to use. What about using H202? or you just want to do a live grow? your in the UK?

See if you can find Great White or Orca, check the labels and see if that will work. Once you get beneficial bacteria established, try and leave 20% of the existing solution in your system and that will contain the colony to help the next start up.Β  Good luck man. πŸ–οΈΒ

@spab, yes one at a time works, it worked last time - first time, and things usually improve as you go, so your One will hopefully be bigger and better this time!! yay, if it works that way!! lol

It's not always easy but it very doable. Cheers Thumbs Up Β

@woodi2 yeah got abit carried away with the first one,, being a huge success never imagined pulling in that dry weight,,,was way over my expectations,,,and it went to my head slightly and I thought I was already a master grower after that attempt,,,and thought i could pull it off,,,,but ended taking on way to much for a newbie esp in DWC,,,,but it has taught me a few things though,,,and nowΒ  keeping things simple with 1 plant for now,,,,I managed to do alright last time,,,but just took on to much,,,and didnt know or understand as much then esp about dampening off an how it can effect all your plants etc,,,and gave me alot to look after and do,,,,so going back to basics and starting again,,,got my great white coming and will looking to start a fresh this wkend,,,,,soons Ive got stuff sorted will tag you when ready to go,,,,,

@spab, lol, They haven't achieved a 100% success rate for cannabis yet, it's still up to us poor old growers to do somethings. lol I just lost 1 and a 1/2 plants at seedling, 1 for sure is dead and the other one took so long, it's only half a plant now but by keeping it that made Monkeydo happy, (Drama! lmao) lol! Then I grab a different strain and hello, No Problem!! oh well. You'll get it, sometimes it's just easier than others. I also recently popped 12 out of 13 seeds no problem and then the next was a single that I couldn't get to pop to save my life! lol

Do you actually have a fungal infection or are you using this as a protection.

Β 

lol it’s so easy to get carried away at one point I had 72 plants going thinking I’ll grow a bunch then I wont have to grow for a long time.Β 
that didn’t go well at all.

nowadays I only grow 4 at a time as it’s all I need to last from one harvest to the next if there heavy yielding.

I do veg for 6 weeks so they usually suffice.

i know that period were you think you a master grower before you figure you gotta a lot to learn.Β 

My first was such a success it’s like beginners luck.

even now after growing for 20+ years I still learn especially as things move forward with it being legal in some countries were getting more factual information.

@woodi2 lol too right mate tbh I think germination rates on fem’ed seeds can be awful you buy a pkt of 3 and 1 doesn’t germinate seems to be getting more normalΒ 

back in the old days when we had just regs it was 8/9 outa 10 that didn’t.

I’d like to try some regs again if only just to see if seeds as a whole have gone downhillΒ

@mix yeah I think it was down to a fungal infection which spread,,,,I think asΒ  I thought was root rot but roots looked ok and plants all went the same way,,,,,so yeah looking to use as a preventative and find that system that works for my needs,,,but yeah so much to learn, got abit carried away and little lazy!!!,,,,so cleaned down everything and sterilized everything with H202,,,and we will try to go again with the Great white and see how it goes this time just concentratingΒ  on 1 plant,,,
