I'd like to see a picture of that Shovelhead. Sweet brother. I've been riding for years. Been laid out on the freeway a few times. Nothing better than riding a Harley. Rock and roll man.Totally agree I've done the same gone on the light side found the plants like it around 480 ppm
So far I've used
310mls of mantis 2 wks veg 2 wks flower
I'll keep record how much I use through the grow
Now in flower I top up twice a wk with 9ltrs so it looks like 80mls to 90mls a wk ✌
It's all a guide line I think the biggest factor is what type of water you use ro ,spring ,tap water ect like me iam ro and I add ph up 2.5 mls per 9ltrs after I've added mantis
Thxs to whitebear suggestion of add ph up it works a treat
it so easy I miss my Sundays now emptying tank ,cleaning tank,mixing all the nutrients ,filling tank ect
Tell the truth its boring now lol which is a good thing gives me more time too finish my old shovelhead chop
Old hippy, good job! What strain are you growing to keep them so short and with thick buds like that? What training technique was used and how soon did you flip to flower to achieve that?nice and healthy looking. sweet. here are mine at the start of week 7 ....

Defoliation is key in flower to ensure bud growth vs unnecessary growth of fan leaves. Direct all plant's energy to the buds. It is also a blessing come harvest time. The way these buds develop and ripen in the next 2 weeks or so will determine if I continue to use Mantis. I'm expecting and pray for some beautiful results. I'm rooting for Mantis. It's been so less stressful not dealing with multiple bottles of nutrients or reservoir changes. Now I literally can harvest each plant separately as they reach their individual full potential without flushing at all. Mind Blown!! Bottom line, if this bud puts me on my ass, I'll be using Mantis going forward.
Hey SK, good to hear from you. You're looking at multiple strains. (The freebies that came with an order from "Seedsman".) I had bought some Northern Lights #5 x Haze seeds for $175.00. They threw in a mix. I know one of them was Green Crack, another peyote and so on. My NL were duds and never developed (All these seeds were from 2017.) When that happened I just said to hell with it and tried to get any of these seeds to grow. I thought they would not survive like the NL seeds. But hell, I wasn't going to just throw them out. These are the ones that made it. Pot Luck brother. I like it though, kinda like a box of chocolates. lolOld hippy, good job!
