  • When to start the nutrients?

    Posted by mrzulu on April 28, 2020 at 7:15 pm

    Hey Gromies-

    First time grower here- I have 4 seedlings that have been doing their thing in OF with straight water for the last 3-4 weeks. From what I’ve read/heard, that is when it sounds that the OF nutrients are starting to run dry and it might be a good time to start with the FF liquid nutrient regime. The thing I don’t know is would I start at the beginning of the FF nute schedule (so their week 1 is my week 4) or do I jump in on their week 4 schedule and skip the stuff before?

    Thanks for your thoughts & ideas!

    (Speaking of FF nutrients- I am aware that you can’t use the full strength recommended in the included documentation when feeding MJ plants as well)

    I haven’t used these products, but here’s my thoughts. Your soil should still contain some nutes, although they my have dwindled somewhat, so you’ll want to start light with the bottle feeds. I’d start at their week four schedule, but only 1/4 strength, and watch your plants to see how they respond. If all goes well slowly ramp up the dosage each feeding. Some photos of your plants size and pot size would be helpful. Goodluck!

    Start at week one and gradually increase it to week four dosage level.
