Hi MR S ! I have to learn how you do these nute calculations. But first to do that I have to know what a plant actually needs at different stages of growth. I've always hated Science so it's complicated for me. But I loved math so that should help some.
I'd sure like to know how to determine the NPK values I should be using. But, I think you have to know what each Macro & Micro Nutrient does in order to calculate it & I'm lost there. Is my assumption correct ?
I read a lot of stuff like the needing 60 ppm of N in Veg. Well, how do you know how much N is 60 ppm in the first place so you can add the correct amount. I see nothing saying 60 ppm = 1 ml. of N.... or something to that nature. Do you just add a drop at a time till it adds 60 ppm to the mix ? Seems I get more confused every time I try to figure it out.
Got any suggestions on things I can read to better understand how all this works ?
Those last plants you gave me calculations for has been my best weed in 4 years. I want that to happen every time. Keep in mind I'm a beginner at this & pretty dumb when it comes to plant biology. In school I thought of it as growing flowers & what man wants to grow flowers unless he's kind of on the feminine side ? But now that it pertains to weed I'm highly interested.
So if you could lead me to a good starting point I'd sure appreciate it. Something that tells me what the plant needs when & how much of it would be great.
Do I need to study each ingredient that's listed on the bottles ?
