Besides over or under watering, using too much nutrient is second on the list of preventable mistakes new growers make when growing weed indoors.
Less is always better than more when it comes to stuff you add to your soil. Be sure and follow the directions on any product you buy.
For example; if a nutrient mix calls for 1/2 tsp in one gallon of water, don’t think 1 tsp will work 50% better. You’re wasting your money as well as killing your plant.
We have tried most of the popular names in the nutrient industry along with bat and sea bird guano with our soil mix and have come to the conclusion that Dyna-Gro products are the best in the business and using them along with Pro-Mix, Black Gold and perlite has given us the best plants we’ve ever had.
For the Vegetative Cycle
The worst thing you can do for your plants is believe all the mumbo jumbo about nutrients and marijuana plants. You need 16 micro and macro nutrients for your girls and that’s it. What’s more, many of the formulations sold don’t or can’t provide all 16 so you have to combine 6 different products to get them and there will be a very good chance the proportions will be incorrect which is the exact reason we use DYNA-GRO for our girls.
In our opinion, they are the only company with the correct proportional formulas for optimal cannabis growing.
Look how simple it is:
We use a 1 tsp of Pro-TeKt and 1 tsp (5 ml) of Foliage-Pro.
Pro-TeKt gives us a tougher leaf and overall stronger and heartier plant to help it withstand bugs and the weight of the buds. Foliage-Pro has the most complete vegetative cycle nutrition formula of any product sold. Note about Pro-TeKt: it can increase your PH and should be tested. When reusing this soil mix, you must test the PH. If it’s a little high, add 1 tablespoon of of lime in a gallon of water and use this for your first watering without any other nutrient. This should take care of any PH issues for the remainder of the grow.
This nutrient mix should be used for seedlings and clones too. Since we’ve been using our soil mix and nutrient combinations, our clone success rate has jumped from 65 to 99%. Give it a try and you will grow the best plants you’ve every had.
For the Flowering Cycle
We use a 1 tsp of Pro-TeKt and 1 tsp (5 ml) of Foliage-Pro per gallon of water and also add 1 tsp of Mag-Pro every other watering commencing two weeks before the start of flowering.
Mag Pro is a sulfur and magnesium booster that helps the plants form dense and large buds.
We watch closely and try to calculate the harvest date so we have an idea when to stop feeding nutrients. Your reefer will always taste better if you go the last couple weeks of their life nutrient free only watering with plain water.
