All the thais and chinks round here grow mango or nl/bigbud. Never get any variety off them. Should be easy to tell if yours is a cheese or ssh, they will definatly look different and smell different. What cheese do you have, big buddha, gh, hgf or the exodus cut?

About the nutes, what canna nutes are you using? An a+b nute for rockwool and clay pebbles? I am using canna coco a+b on my coco plants and its good stuff, has everything they need, so if you've the specific nutes, then they'll do the job nice.

I'm not an expert, or even a novice at rockwool and clay pebble growing. So i don't know how often you should be watering them. Every 2/3 hours seems alot to me, but i top water at the moment, and dont have a drip system, plus rockwool dries out quick and clay pebbles hold no water like coco and soil.

So i guess if your plants are looking good with the timing of the feeds you have now, keep at it. They'll probably need watering more often once in flower, but for now you should be good.

With the ph, id say you need to do that everytime you make feed water. Rockwool is a bit dodgy on the ole ph, so you need to keep ontop of it. As its run to waste, you dont have to worry about ph and ec changing as you would in a recirculating system. So thats a plus.

Your ec value sounds about right. EC 1.8.2.0 is what i am feeding my coco plants right now, and they are in flower for a few days now. Remember to account for your background EC though. If you are not using RO water, the water will have an EC of its own. My tap water is EC 0.28-0.29, so when i mix a feed of EC 2.0 for my plant, i actually add nutes until the EC is 2.29, otherwise if i only did it to 2.0, i'd only be feeding EC 1.71 of nutes. So keeo that in mind also and check your tap water EC.

Good luck with the grow, would like to see some pictures. Especially of the ssh, allways hear people saying it's the best sativa hybrid out there.

Hi Matty, welcome to the forum. Like Solid, I'm using canna's coco specific nutrients and have no complaints. I can't see you having to many nute related issues with canna (unless you really stray from the guidelines), they are pretty well idiot proof.

I'll move your post over to the indoor forum, so that people can find your log more easily.

I'll accept the friend request now. And good job on the nutes, those will work great.

As for ec/ph sticks, i've never seen nor heard of one that shows you the NPK ratio, and i dont really think it would help that much. There are many other elements the plants need too, so an EC stick is the easiest, universal method of doing it and works really well .Ebay is your friend for things like this. They charge £50 each for a ph and ec stick at my local hydroshop, but i got mine on ebay for £20 each and they work perfectly well. Both accurate to .00, 1 point calibration, and the ph ones has a temperature thing on it too. Which is a bit confusing sometimes as the ph changes with the temp of the water. Though its good to make sure you don't feed too hot or too cold a feed to the plants.

Now, what am i growing? My diary is in the indoor growing section and has all the varities i'm growing in the title at the moment. But just for you here and now, lol, i'm growing sweet tai, sweet afghani, white widow x big bud, ch9 flower, ukcheese and tiburan (shark). Did have an ice on the go too but it died after germinating.

I'm searching for new mother plants right now, and will be doing so for the next 12 months with a like-minded friend in varities we both want to try, and have faith will produce some real crackers. There could then be the possibility of some breeding with these selected mothers using a stash of select regular seeds i have hanging about. Jack Herer/Black Domina x C99 anyone, or perhaps white widow/black domina x G13 bx1, ukcheese x sweet tai/santa marta c gold, ukcheese x purps/c4xblack russian? There's some real exiciting possibilities of then finding even better plants in these crosses. That's what i'm uop to the next 12 months, what you got planned after this grow?

does anyone think that co2 will make a big differants of course in a big grow, but in a small room how much % do you think they will benefit (if any)???? ive seen a link where you can make your own co2 for 1euro per day, basiclly its like making your own beer but only with sugar and yeast is it worth the agg???if u think it is and u want to give it a go ill find the link for you!!and i might do it with you but is it more trouble than its worth?????

as long as you have a properly set up extractor, with a fresh air inlet, then that will provide ALL the co2 plants will need in a small grow.
