This is the correct method following our instructions, you're good.
We recommend amending for the first feeding 24-48 hrs prior to transplant to allow the nutrients to start breaking down and becoming available. Two weeks after transplant, apply your first top dress.
@HashGirl seeing these comments I realize what's confusing here.
You don't have to top-dress right after transplant because if you've amended into the soil, the nutrients are available to the plant at that time. You do want to start top dressing two weeks later to keep a steady stream of nutrients available for your plant as it grows.
I hope this clears up any lingering confusion!
What kind of water do you use? Wondering if some who are seeing nutrient issues could be due to PH, maybe too much calcium in water blocking uptake, chlorine, etc.?
If you have really high or low pH water it can interfere with the ability of nutrients to dissolve in it. But given that other plants have done fine I don't think that's it.Sorry Sissy, I just saw this.
We're on well water but I've been told by InTheShed that ph doesn't matter when using ProMix so I don't ph the water ahead of time.
My well water is super high in alkalinity. High enough to kill plants in containers in about 3 weeks.
I adjust down with vitamin C powder and that's after it goes thru a 4 stage RO filter.
I wood test your pH of your well water for s&g to be sure ok.
They do. They are showing that they're female and have reached sexual maturity.Also, do photo plants show pre-flowers before their light schedule flips to flower?
They're probably stretching because they're starting to get all the nutrients they need!They're also stretching especially GSC2 and 4 and I thought that didn't happen until flip either.
I would tie flat the leaders on the GSC3 so they're level with the rest of the canopy.

Looking awesome @HashGirl ! They really look great. How much were you expecting to get off these girls?The girls are looking better. They're greening up again. The next feeding is scheduled for next Thursday so if they continue to do well, I'll flip them to flower then and start using the GF Bloom.
Also, do photo plants show pre-flowers before their light schedule flips to flower? Here's a close-up:
If this isn't normal, it might be because our power went off for about 5 minutes the other day so maybe it messed up the lights? They're also stretching especially GSC2 and 4 and I thought that didn't happen until flip either.
Anyhow, here are the rest of the photos:

That's it. Let me know your thoughts and thanks for following along.
