Ok so i was looking for nutrients online and did a search to see if there was a store around me and guess what! Turns out there is a hydro expo store like 4 miles away from my house, i had never been in a hydro store before they have some nice setups but cost some money. Anyway i ended up getting Fox Farms nutrients....

You should wait until the third or fourth week unless you see signs of yellowing on the lowest leaves. Your soil will hold them over and let the roots get a hold on life. GB is strong, so start out at 1/4 dose and work your way to full strength always keeping an eye out for signs of stress. You may want to get some fish emulsion ( cold filtered if you can find it) and add that in to your schedule. It's nice to give them some variety, and fish emulsion is very easy on them.. Be patient young grasshoppa.....

What soil are you using?

Thank you for the advice fasts102376, haha i like the young grasshoppa thing Be IRIE, that fish emulsion thing sounds like a good idea i think im gonna have to try it. Oh and i started using off the regualr miracle grow soil should i buy the fox farm soil too instead?

I would reccomend getting the FF... a lot of us use it here and know what to epect which makes problem solving a bit easier. Your MG will work, just keep an eye on the babies for adverse effects. Liquified sea weed would also be good to grab while you are there. They are fairly cheap too and will help out in the garden quite a bit.

You want to keep an eye out for signs of burning, droopy/sagging all of a sudden, stop/stunted growth, anything that makes you think Hmmmmmm, something is going on here....The earlier you spot something going wrong, the easier it is to remedy it.
You can go to 18/6 whenever you want, the fan is a personal choice, I like to leave them on 24/7 so the ladies always have some fresh air blowing on them.
Yes you can combine nutes for feeding.

You should not be feeding them yet, specially not grow big...If you absolutely have to feed them, give them some fish emulsion and only a little bit. Just be patient, you are likly going to do more damage then good by pumping them full of nutes at such an early age...They are a week old right?
