Question Nutrients when to start feeding
hope all is well and safe!
when do you start feeding nutrients to your plant?
how much do you start feeding at each stage?
I know nothing is set in stone and all plants and nutrients are different.
I have currently got canna products. ( canna a+b, rhizotonic, canna boost and pk13/14 and canna cal mag!!
@sub8 Medium matters here mate.
Hydro, and mediums like coco, you will feed straight away. Those medium are void of nuits, so need nuits adding to them
Soil, will have nuits in it, that may last a few weeks, up until the whole grow depending on what soil it is.
~If youre using a standard soil, it might be week three before you need to feed, only use water until the plant starts to look a bit hungry
@sub8 Yes mate, same shit
With coco, you want to start off at a low EC. Try using just 0.5ml per litre of a n b, and 0.5ml per litre of rhizo. pH it to 5.8 and water the coco with it. This will add some food to the medium, then plant your seeds into it. This works best for me.
@macky ok that’s great, what about the veg, flower stage with nutrient feed?
Sorry I don’t have a ec meter/tester atm. I’d only just heard of it the other day on ur site and podcast (which are fantastic btw). And only got a cheap ph pen. Until I can afford some decent testers/meters.
At the moment my ph pen is reading 5.8 on feed. But need to flush both as there reading 6.5 At run off and I want to regain control.
Free Auto Blueberry from silver leaf.
and this is a random bag seed (hoping it’s a Cali seed when I was getting my smoke from a mate).
why didn’t I start this hobby earlier!
@macky hey, hope you are well?
You have mentioned about using silica where you said use around 3rd week of veg up to week 5 in veg.
I’m using autos would it be best to use the silica the 2nd week of veg as they grow quicker that photos?
Ive ordered Buddha tree on you recommendation!
@sub8 regarding you run off Ph , use coco love it personally I don't check it mainly because cant control what that does in the root ball all I can do is ensure I put whats right in , this decision was not made lightly I was chasing my tail and twisting my melon ,I just don't take it . The silica yea have given it at 2 weeks but it plant dependent for me if there's enough growth to start light manipulation or leaf tucking a small amount is all that is needed , it will spike your ph so don't panic
@woolieback thanks for the reply. I am probably just overthinking things and trying to plan ahead. But I’m coming to the conclusion that I’m best trying read the plants with the help n guidance from you fantastic and informative people.
