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

    Well these are the charts I have available... and after- is help for those of you who- due to resourses- must use Miracle grow (or schultz/Peters) Or Fish Ferts.


    This Lists the BASICS needed to use most readily available Brands (and a few of the extras-- but there ARE more!) and both a weekly schedual (dirt & hydro IF you change the water weekly) and Phasic feeding for bubblers.
    Phasic shedules can be followed for soil-- but do not work as well!

    ALL MEASURES ARE PER U.S. GALLON...
    Hope this helps!!!


    EDITED NOTE FOR PHASIC FEEDINGS!!!
    Unless your Nutes specific schedule tells you what to do for sprouting and seedling, you need to cut back on the nutes for that stage BEFORE youconsider it to be "phase one"
    Week ONE is NOT as soon as they are sprouted and have leaves! Week one is after they have 4 sets of true leaves---
    Start your new seedlings in JUST Ph adjusted water (can use hydrogard & superthrive)
    When they get their 3rd set of leaves--add HALF of the amound called for in phase 1 of your phasic schedule--
    When they open another 2 sets of leaves (fully!) then add the other 1/2 to bring it to the amount required for "Phase 1" this will greatly reduce the possibility of nute-burn or over feeding...and allows the babies to adjust to the nutes easier.
    Thanx!


    NOTE ABOUT FLUSHING!!!
    If growing in Soil, you usually Start flushing (running clear water thru the soil to rince out the un-used nutes) 2 weeks prior to harvest. This is nessisary to force the plant to use it's stored nutes & protiens, that otherwise result in harsh or grassy product.
    But flushing also OFTEN results in losing yield; since you will reduce the available nutrients to the plant during the last 2 weeks of growth when the plants usually put on the most weight.
    Simply STOP Nuting at whatever week you are at when time to flush.
    IF you use the Ememrgency flush method, follow the entire schedule until the plants are ready to harvest.

    The last 4 Products are used in small quantities and only at specific times during the grow -- so if you know someone who wanted to go in on the 3-pack with ya, it would be worth it!

    Here's the FoxFarms Feeding Schedule for Soil... Hydro is MUCH more complex, unless you use bubblersthen you can follow a Phasic feeding schedule (At end of weekly schedule!)


    FOX FARMS FEEDING SCHEDULES


    WEEKLY FEEDING- per Gallon
    Sprouting and week 1--BigBloom 2TBS
    week 2-- 2tsp Grow Big + 2TBS Big Bloom
    Week 3--3tsp Grow Big + 2TBS Big Bloom
    Week 4--JUST 3 tspGrow Big + 1/4 tsp Open Sesame
    Week 5 same as week 4 unless going 12/12--

    Week 5- OR--day 1 of 12/12-- 2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom + 1/2 tsp Open Sesame
    Week 6--same as above
    Week 7-- 2 Tsp Grow Big + 2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom + 1/4 tsp Beastie Bloom
    Week 8-- 2Tsp Grow Big + 2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom + 1/2 tsp Beastie Bloom
    Week 9-- 2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom + 1/4 tsp Cha Ching
    week 10-- Same as above
    Week 11--2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom + 1/2 tsp Cha Ching


    At beginning of week 11--Check Trichomes-- Flush if ready.. otherwise, continue as with week 11 every week until you flush!


    Also recomended--but not a nessesity--
    Bush Doctor Sledgehammer (prevents lock-out)
    use 2 drops per gallon of water between feedings starting in week 4 of 12/12



    PHASIC SHEDULE: (per gallon)
    (follow this for bubblers, OR you can use these amounts when watering in soilbut is not as good as the weekly schedule for soil!)

    New Clones, or when seedlings get 3 sets of leaves- 1tsp Grow Big + 2tsp Big Bloom
    Week 3 of veg (unless going 12/12) ADD 1tsp Grow big + 2 tsp Big Bloom
    4 Days Before going 12/12- Add ¼ tsp Open Sesame
    Day 1 of 12/12 Drain Reservoir & refill. Add 2 tsp Tiger Bloom + 1TBS Big Bloom + ½ tsp Open Sesame
    Week 3 of 12/12Add ¼ tsp Beastie Bloom
    Week 5 of 12/12Drain and refill reservoir Add 2 tsp Grow Big + 1 tsp Tiger bloom + 1 TBS Big Bloom + ¼ tsp Cha ching
    3-5 Days Before harvest-- Drain and refill reservoir add 2 drops Sledgehammer


    keep the res filled in between feedings with ph adjusted water--



    The reasonFox Farms doesn't list nutes for weeks 2 & 4 is that it ASSUMES your res won't go down, so you won't NEED any additional nutes (if your res stays full- great!)..
    but if the plants are pretty big, or the room is warm/dry-- they can need refilling up to 3-4x a week!!! The chart doesn't take that into account--
    Remember-- feed AT MOST 1x each week-- only water in-between!
    Use additional nutes from week one at 1/2 rate until in flower (between recomended feeds) then in flower-- for additional feeds, use the nutes from the 1st week of flower at 1/2 rate in between...again--NEVER feed more than 1x a week!

    Bubblers MAY use the weekly Schedules-- BUT ONLY if you use an ec/ppm meter to keep the levels where they should be....
    an ec around 1.2-1.5 in veg.. then 1.5 -1.7 in flower unlitt the last 2-3 weeks... then can go as high as 2.0. Watch yor plants! they'll tell you if you are over/under feeding!

    Blue Planet Nutrients 3-part Schedule

    PRODUCTS NEEDED:
    Elite Grow
    Elite Bloom
    Elite Micro
    The Gallon trio pack is priced between $40 and $60



    Feeding Tips: Change the hours of light from 18 hours to 12 hours when switching from vegetative growth to flowering stage. • For best results, maintain the pH of the nutrient solution in your reservoir between 5.5 and 6.1. • Maintain the temperature in your grow room between 60 and 84oF and the Relative Humidity betwen 40 and 60%. • Keep the the temperature of the nutrient solution in your reservoir between 65 and 70oF. The solubility of oxygen in water decreases as temperature increases and excessively high temperatures in your reservoir is conducive to root rot. • Never mix pure concentrations of GROW MICRO and BLOOM, always add them to water. • Change the nutrient solution in your reservoir at least once every 10 days and flush your system regularly with clean water to avoid salt build up.

    IONICS SCHEDULE:

    Ionics has made their nutes pretty darned simple to use!
    With no mixing needed... same schedule for weekly OR phasic feeding.
    PRODUCTS NEEDED:
    IONIC GROW=$14.00 (USD)
    IONIC BLOOM=$14.00
    IONIC BOOST=$14.00

    Also Suggested:
    NITROZYME=$19.00
    FOSSILFUEL=$17.00


    SCHEDULE:
    From 3-leaf stage to day 1 of 12/12: Feed Weekly Using 4 tsp per Gallon of IONIC GROW.
    It is also recomended (but not nessisary) to also add 2TB nitrozyme and 4tsp Fossil Fuel.


    Phasic--same amounts per gallon, once when you fill reservoir, and as needed (not more than 1x weekly) when you re-fill the rez.!


    From day 1 of 12/12: feed weekly using 4tsp per Gallon of IONIC BLOOM.
    It is also recomended, but not a nessesity, to also add 2TB nitrozyme and 4tsp Fossil Fuel.

    Phasic: Day one of 12/12- dump & refill reservoir using same amount
    per gallon.. and these amounts when re-filling the rez (not more than
    1x a week)

    Week 5 of bloom (5 weeks after they actually SHOW): Add 3/4 tsp per gallon of IONIC Boost WITH the 4tsp per gallon of IONIC Bloom.
    It is also recomended to also add 2TB nitrozyme and 4tsp Fossil Fuel.

    Phasic: Week 5 of Bloom add 3/4 tsp per gallon of IONIC BOOST to
    the reservoir ....and these amounts when re-filling the rez (not more
    than 1x a week)

    FOLIAR FEEDING: IONIC recomends using 1/2 tsp per quart of EACH:
    NITROZYME + FOSSIL FUEL in addition to 1/2 tsp of IONIC GROW or IONIC BLOOM as a foliar spray every week

    SUPPIMENTATION:
    GREENFUSE ROOT= $20.00 (USD)

    "ROOT"= 3/4tsp per gallon in water from time seed planted until has 3
    sets of leaves

    "GROWTH"= 3/4tsp Per Gallon to All GROW feedings

    "BLOOM"= 3/4 tsp per Gallon to all Bloom feedings



    Fish Fertilizer
    This is for the use of Alaska brand Fish Fertilizer, and Alaska Kelp Fertilizer-- But other brands of Fish Emulsion and Organic nutrient that is JUST P & K with NO "N" value will work also.

    Start The FIsh Ferts at 1/2 recomended rate when the plants have 3 sets of true leaves... after week 2 of veg, go to 3/4 stregnth...
    When ready for 12/12-- you need to get some Alaska Kelp fert* (-- it is just P-K... add this to your 3/4 stregnth Fish Ferts at 1/4 stregnth... and use this blend thru the bloom period...
    IF she seems to need more-- feed more often instead of increasing the amounts... with this fert , that seems to work better.

    You will probably need additional micronutes-- so I would call around, or go online for EarthJuice Microblast... use at 1/3 stregnth every week.. as the Fish ferts arent complete with all the micro's needed.


    *or another No Nitrogen Organic



    ESPOMA NUTES :
    Espoma is a brand of dry, granual organics used mostly in outdoor in-ground growing, but CAN be used at a lesser rate to enrich the soil of container plants.

    It is marketed as Plant-tone, Veg-Tone, Holly-Tone, Rose-tone and Flower-tone.

    You will want to get Veg-tone and Flower-tone... If flower-tone is not available, use Just the veg-tone.

    For in-ground,prep your planting site, adding 1/4 cup of the Veg-tone to the hole you dig for the plants (at least 18 inches wide and 12 inches deep- the soil fluffed and back In the hole when you add the Espoma)
    ... or in containers, use 2 tablespoons in 5 galons of soil.
    When the Plants Begin to bloom, use the Flower-tone as a top dressing according tot he bags directions, and gently rub into the soil around the plants so i doesn't wash away in the rain.

    You MAY use the Fish-Fert Schedule along with the Espoma, but reduce the feedings to every other week.



    FOR MIRACLE GROW NUTES :

    If you really MUST use Miracle Grow Nutes or Soil cuz there isn't anything else available (cost can't be a reason, MG is about the same price as some organics !)

    THEN USE THIS GUIDE PLEASE!!!

    (enough for 2-3 plants .. just use more jugs for more plants!)
    Get regular miracle grow (Not tomato or Rose food or azalea formula!)
    AND Blossom Booster (or Schultz Professional Bloom food)
    get 2- 1 gallon jugs of spring water from the store (about $1 each)
    and an empty jug. Mark them (A) (B) & (C) --- (B) is the empty jug!

    in the 1st jug (A) mix the MG at 1/4 the recomended rate for indoor plants.

    In the 2nd jug (C), mix at 1/2 stregnth for indoor plants.

    pour 1/2 of both into the empty jug (B)

    Now-- when your plants get their 3rd set of leaves, feed once every 10 days. Start with (A) for the 1st 2 feed... then (B).. and end-up with (C) the week before you go 12/12.

    FLUSH YOUR PLANTS WITH 5 GALLONS OF CLEAR WATER BEFOR GOING 12/12!

    MG builds up-- and will lock-up as you add the stronger bloom nutes!
    as the final part of the flush-- pour in a couple pints of your new bloom nutes (see below)


    Do the same with your bloom nutes, Mix ahead in larger amounts... BUT--mix Jug (A) at 1/2 rate, Jug (C) at full stregnth-- and (B) the 2 mixed.

    Start with (A) the 1st day of 12/12, then again in 10 days,
    then switch to (B). Do not switch to (C) until the week before you flush for harvest!
    when the trichomes just start turning cloudy, give em their last dose. In 10 days, check the trichs again.. if not all cloudy, you can feed again-- But go back to (B)

    MAKE SURE TO FLUSH WELL AND WAIT THE FULL 2 WEEKS TO HARVEST!

    You need to flush all the Nitrogen and magnesium out of the plants-- so Flush them well, put back in the bloom room the full 2 weeks till harvest, water as needed .. but absolutely no nutes or foliar sprays!

    IF you foliar fed during the grow-- be sure to use a sprayer of water to gently shower it off the plants! (also gets rid of dead bugs & dust stuck to the buds!)

    USING MG SOIL IS NEVER RECOMENDED!!
    it has TIME RELEASED nutes-- so flushing is impossible... and you do not know how much nutes are being released or used by the plants.
    If yYou Used MG soil, do NOT nute at all during veg... and use only additional P-K and suppliments without "N" during bloom...
    And pre-harvest flushing can NOT be done on the normal 2 week schedule because of the time released nutes-- you must emergency flush when the trichs are how ya want em...



    Cut the plant off at soil level. Place plant in a bucket with enough PLAIN tapwater to cover the base, but not touch lower limbs or vegetation....

    Add a bubbler to the bucket to help "fool" the plant into thinking it is still alive (this only works up to 4 days before they wilt!)
    Tthe plant will now use the nutrients stored in it's system . Leave under the lights at least 2 days-- up to 4 (3 is the usual amount)
    IF you are one who puts their plants in the dark the last 3 days, give em at least 24 hours under lights before ya do... the photosynthesis will help the plant flush out unused nitrogen.


    When using MG Fertilizer (as well as Schultz or Peter's ) Watch for:
    Clawing
    brown dry spots
    crinckling leaves
    pale new growth
    Yellowing

    if these happen, flush the plant, and wait 2-3 days before feeding again.
    If Using MG soil and this happens, your best route is to re-plant in a bigger planter with different soil... DO NOT try to remove the existing soil from the roots of the plant!!!!

    Good luck--
    MG may not be the best-- but it CAN work!

    HOPE THIS HELPS CLEAR UP THE "HOW DO I USE THIS" QUESTIONS!!!

    Maybe I'm misreading this, but I believe if I gave my plants this much FF nutes, they would be burnt to a crisp.

    Anyone actually giving their plants this much FF chemical nutes like Grow Big and Tiger Bloom in soil?

    I'm following those recommendations to a T with my poison berry and she seems to love it.

    Interesting, so you've given them something like this..

    2Tsp Grow Big + 2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom + 1/2 tsp Beastie Bloom

    at once and not burned them (with non-organic FF for soil)?

    I'm on the 8th week so maybe I'll try giving that much to one of my plants and see what happens..

    Will do chaosridden.

    What I can say for sure is that I've given the plants in my current LST grow less than half of what is listed here (more like a 3rd) and I'm seeing a little burn on the tips already.

    Maybe it's the strain or maybe I'm mistaking the browned tips for burn when it's actually lack of nutes.

    I know that FF nutes (Grow Big and Tiger Bloom) come in two varieties. Chemical ferts for Soil and Organic ferts for Hydro but that difference is not mentioned in this FAQ.

    Anyone else who uses FF chemical ferts for soil care to weigh in on this?

    Thanks!!

    not completely, harry. I don't have beastie bloom or open sesame. but i use these measurements: 2Tsp Grow Big + 2 tsp Tiger Bloom +1TBS Big Bloom, i also add 1 tsp of Age old kelp. I'm using 75% FFOF and 25% organic perlite. I have no noticeable nute burn, except for where some got splashed onto the leaves.

    Yes it can, why is your run off getting on leafs?
    I think I'd have to fix that.
