    I was wondering the same thing, do you have to buy everything on FF list? I bought the Tiger Bloom and Grow Big. The guy at the garden store had told me that Grow Big is for veg stage and Big Bloom was for flowering stage? Do I still need the Tiger Bloom? I am truly confused?

    According to the feeding schedules available on FoxFarm's website, all three main components are used to varying degree in the flowering phase. So it would seem that you would want the Tiger Bloom too.

    Re: NUTES - What To Use and How to use them - Tutorial

    I've been growing for over 5 years now and still learning I guess. OK, I'm just noticing that my feeding schedule is normal for what I was using. BUT am I using enough? I didn't (can't afford a meter so that's out) understand why I loose so many leaves during my bloom cycle but now when I re-read the GH bag it say's to use it WITH my regular feeding so do I put the cool bloom in along with my Maxi-grow? I've been using only Cool Bloom during the flowering stage after I turn them 12/12, but usually twice during the bloom given them some of the Maxi cause I feel so bad when the leaves fall. I've seen so many video's of other grows and they seem to be fuller & have more leaves left on the plants then mine when their done blooming.

    Not sure here... But I think everyone bases the nutes on a US GAllon..Which is 3.8 liters so go from there IF you are use to using liters

    Folks- please keep in mind-- these charts are DIRECT from FOX FARMS...

    Also-- "week one" is when your plant has it's FOURTH SET of true leaves-- not as a baby-

    AND you MUST adjust it if using Fox Farms soil-- ALL of these schedules are for non-amended soils... or hydro (for the phasic feeds)

    If using Ocean Forest and such, you do not need to feed them until they are almost ready for 12/12 or until after 4 weeks of vegging (after 4th leaf-set) SOME strains, Like Sharksbreath, G13 x Haze are Heavy eaters, and CAN handle it.. BUT: Most Afghani crosses, slow indica's and Berry crosses WILL DIE if over-fed... so please, spare your babies and use caution!

    Re: Nutes - What To Use & How To Use Them - Tutorial

    Have a question for someone about sugars....I bought some unsulphered molasses but don't really know how much to add. One girl is two weeks from harvest and I have two others that just went into flower a week ago. I watered all of them last weekend at a rate of two tsp per gallon of H2O. Everything looks fine just need some guidence. Should I use more? Less? Is there a better product for the $$? Also, any tips for pre-harvest?

    use less, you should only use about 1 tsp per gallon.

    Depending on the nutes you use you need to flush the one that is 2 weeks from harvest.

    Re: Nutes - What To Use & How To Use Them - Tutorial

    Aw man, I wish i would have read this before I started, I am just starting growing two days ago for the first time in a hydro box, and I think I screwed up. Using GH products, I planted seeds and used the seedling/sprout levels of nutes on them from the beginning. Any suggestions? Think they will sprout? Any help would be appreciated!!
