Promix has an organic pre mixed bag I’d look at for autos myself might need bit of boost in flower but heard ph water and enjoyThis will be my very first grow..... soil and nutrients are confusing me so much. From research I found that fox farm ocean forest is pretty good?...... What would be the best soil to us for some Northern Lights and Candy Kush autoflowers?
I am on the fence for that one...my experience comes down to some auto strains perform better than others in the same soil...I have had seeds not germ and others thrive...same soil. A compromise is to start them in a smaller container of 50/50 mix of soil and perlite/coco/whatever you have and then if they pop and doing fine they should be good in full blown soil. I am water only and I need them to make it to the end of the grow, so I use 7g pots and they do fine. I have gotten blasted here saying autos are "light feeders", but some just are....auto dont like too many nutes , it stunts them , gor for something plain that you can then feed when they show signs of hunger , never had luck in super soils with autos
Yep, I def think coco yields more...but more work than I am interested in investing...I like that I can leave my plants for 3-4 days on their own to do their thing...fits my (lazyass) schedule.beautiful plants my friend , ive changed to coco now lol , maybe its just me and soil as now i can pull 9 once off an auto when i do it right and take my time
If I’m using 3 gallon pots for my autos, Should I use Promix BX alone in the pot... or should it be mixed with anything else before planting.
Also, I really like the mega crop fertilizer. I think I will be using this suggestion with the pro mix BX for my first try grow.
Can I just use the Pro-Mix BX and Mega Crop fertilizer throughout the entire grow cycle.
If you use the Pro-Mix Organic it has a lot of time released nutrients...totally different media than Pro-Mix BX which is mostly peat (similar to coco).As far as nutrients for the Pro-Mix and FFOF mixture? Will I eventually need some. Which nutrients are best ?
For this grow, would you recommend the Pro-Mix Organic with the time releases nutrients over the more coco like BX?If you use the Pro-Mix Organic it has a lot of time released nutrients...totally different media than Pro-Mix BX which is mostly peat (similar to coco).
