    re: How often do you feed your plant?

    Follow directions on package.
    I like to feed my plants a mild solution every day, when I water them (I use organics).
    If the nute you're using says 1 tblsp (or scoop or whatever) once a week, do that.


    Notes: miracle grow products are crap. Almost anything else is better.
    Keep in mind--all chem. nutrients are strong, and the recommened dosage is usually too high for MJ.

    go with purely organic, your going to be smoking that, if u want ur shit to end up like a ciggerette, then use the chems, otherwise go with a natural blend, bat guano potassium and i use raw phosphates.

    oh yeah i feed once a week or a seriously light feeding 2 times a week, about every 3 days.

    its starving, it needs food, go to a plant nursery you can find everything i mentioned. purely organic means no chemicals at all.

    Guano Tea is a Bat Guano dissolved into water. You can make it as strong or as weak as you please. Sunleaves Bat Guano recoomends 3 tablespoons per. Gallon for growing plants.

    For sprouts, you can mix 1 tablespoon into all the soil you will use before you plant them.

    Use a high Nitrogen BG for Veg. growth (Mexican), and a high Phosphorus BG for flowering (Jamaican).

    re: How often do you feed your plant?

    NO. Do not give any ferts through the first week of the sprouts life. Espescially do not give them ferts before they have even broken through the soil. This is pointless, as the plant has not formed roots with which to access these nutrients. Also, despite what you may have been told, Bat Guano or any fert for that matter will not help seedlings root.

    Young plants are easily burned through the over application of ferts. Even Bat Guano can burn young seedlings, so wait until the plants are well established before you start feeding them.

    Seeds have all the nutrients they need for the first 12 days of life.

    atouk, are you aware than cow manure is fertilizer?
    Chem. nutrients kill mychorrizae, benficial micro-organizims.
    I have eaten lots of organically-grown food (no chem's); it tastes batter than food grown chemically.
    One reason organic nutrients are better is because it's harder to overdose on organics.
    Another reason is most people prefer the taste of organically grown MJ.

    Thumbs up re: How often do you feed your plant?

    Try "Cutting Edge Solutions". Use all three products, Micro, Grow and Bloom.
    The are all completely organic and are very reasonably priced (under $40 dollars for all 3).

    The amount depends on whether you are growing indoors or outdoors. Indoors, you are forcing faster growth, so probably every other day. Outdoors, growth is slower so once a week is sufficient.

    With Cutting Edge, the directions for each stage of growth is on each bottle.

    In any case, if the edges of the leaves begin turning yellow, you are over feeding and need to cut back. Cut it in half to start and see what happens from there.

    Happy Growing !!!
