This Week im feeding 1 teaspoon of megacrop and 1 teaspoon of calmag in 1gal of water. Obviously just gave it a little water, maybe a 1 tablespoon worth to let the roots get growing.
Seems a bit much for that small. I start with 1/8th teaspoon each and increase by 1/8th each watering. So I don’t get up to a full teaspoon for about 16-20 days. But my water has high PPM (400ish) so I might be getting some nutes from that too.

Last time I went easy on the nutes and I found that I ran into trouble early on and everything was pale green. This time Im keeping it crazy simple and doseing 1 teaspoon at a time and adding calmag.
We will see how it goes. For now this little runt is finally growing lol
