Good afternoon everyone. 

After some more great advice from youguysi have finally purchased some proper food for my girls.....  So obviously I now have some questions and I apologise for a long one!! 

1. It says on the bottle that you need 200ml to 300ml for every 100 litres.  I mix in a 14 litre barrel so I will need 28ml...???

2. There are two bottles and it says add A and then B....??  Taking in to account my calculations above... Is that 28ml of each or is that 14ml of each per 14 litres?? 

3. I still addfeedand then pH after? 

4. It says on the label that the amount is dependent on the EC level......... What doe EC mean? 

 

Thank you for the help again,  hopefully I will be of some use to add advice soon lol

thats right mate yes Smile

There are two bottles and it says add A and then B

you will use 28ml of A and 28ml of B, but 2 ml per litre is a bit much, start at just 1ml per litre and make your way up if the plants want more Smile

Yes, ph should be the last thing you do mate

1. It says on the bottle that you need 200ml to 300ml for every 100 litres.  I mix in a 14 litre barrel so I will need 28ml...???

As a standard rule start out with 50% of what the manufacturer recommends so start with 1ml per liter and see how she likes it

2. There are two bottles and it says add A and then B....??  Taking in to account my calculations above... Is that 28ml of each or is that 14ml of each per 14 litres?? 

Since we’re recommending 50% rate use 1ml per liter of each so in your 14 liters put 14ml of each, using the A first, then the B.

3. I still addfeedand then pH after? 

Yes that’s correct. Add everything, then adjust the ph, then feed.

4. It says on the label that the amount is dependent on the EC level......... What doe EC mean?

EC is electrical conductivity. It’s a measure of the saltiness of the solution in very simple terms.  It’s probably referring to the background EC of the tap water. If the water is high EC you use less feed to avoid burning the plants.

EDIT:

We were working on the answers at the same time, amazing they are the essentially the same so I left mine too

@macky @monkeydo

Thanks guys for you help yet again. I love how the reply are the same and of course the advice is top notch. 

So I guess there is a way of reading the EC?  Like a meter that works like a PH meter?  I don't want to run the chance of burning the plants up at this early stage of grow.

Thanks again

@macky

It honestly make such a difference having great advice.  Going from asking questions on a Facebook page and getting every possible answer/opinion to getting exact and professional advice is a game changer.......
