Need Cuc Nute Help (Peat??)

OK, I'm about to switch to GH Flora nutes in the cucumber ag.  I checked out to Peats grow II log and the GH calculator and notice there is a big difference between the hard water and regular micro flora.  I fooled around a bit and think this looks like a likely formulation.  Any comments?

Thanks,

Beth

Great to hear from you,

Great to hear from you, bab43. Lurk away, but your contributions were appreciated!

Interesting, re keeping baby greens at 1.2!

They seem to have re-org'd the site (aerogrow.com), and I can't find the detailed faqs they used to have...

Interesting idea. But wasn't there some reason AG said they couldn't offer broccoli? Like it didn't do well hydroponically or something. Or perhaps it just doesn't thrive at room temps.

Thanks once again, Peat! 

Thanks once again, Peat!  I'll stick with the ag nutes.  I can always start new seeds if it takes too long for the floramato to get here.  No more three part for me!  I now remember that even GH says not to use the three part for toms and cucs.  Duh.

Hi Peat,   Thanks for the

Hi Peat,

  Thanks for the help.   I was shooting for the 10 days to first fruit formula. So there is someone who successfully grew a cuc with floramato?  I'm sold - I just ordered Floramato.  Do you think one more week of ag nutes will set the seedlings back?  Or should I go ahead and mix up a seedling batch of the GH 3 part nutes?

Thanks,

Beth

Hi Peat,

  Thanks. Yes, I'm trying to get close to Dr Resh, but keep the N level a little lower than he suggests.  I've had a very long week and am having trouble reconciling the online calculator with your spreadsheet.  Can you help me understand?  Leave the first set of rows alone?  Enter the different ratios in the second set and the third set is the ppms diluted to 3 Litres?  If that is the case, does my mix look reasonable? (8 micro, 12 grow, 9 bloom)

Thanks,

Beth
