Re Veg Clone - Fed On Infant Milk Formula Only - Yes I Am Mad!

Thread starter #1
Well here we go , i got this clone in flower of a friend , i used baby milk once before as i had multiple deficiency with a plant , i had nothing to hand so i used one scoop to one litre of baby food as it has loads of stuff in it lots of nutrients , the plant healed ok


Any ways cut a long story short . this plant will be growing with just the milk formula i did use urine once but i feel she dont need it
i am putting my neck on the line with this one :MoreNutes::MoreNutes::MoreNutes::3::3::3::3::3::3::3::3:

And yes i am mad in the head , no turning back now !!!

I noticed... it has NPK and tons of other things that I might think would fill in for your micro-nutrient needs.
Judging by the energy numbers, this stuff must have lots of natural sugars in it. I wonder if that helps with taste in the finished product.
Have you seen any other baby formula grows? It might be a good idea to see what issues they encountered.
I did a quick google search for growing with baby formula and didn't find any real hits. Perhaps you've stumbled upon something new and wonderful. Wouldn't that be fun!

So I did finally find some info on using baby formula for other plants.
Generally, folks were fairly positive and reported good results.
Many folks mentioned the possibility of attracting bugs or mold. I can sure see how that might be a problem.
Be sure to keep up whatever proactive insect control techniques you've been successful with. An Aphid infection will sure bring your garden crashing down in a quick hurry.

i am thinking of filling the pot to the top with some perlite to try stop bugs digging (if any) , i have sprayed them with ultimate bug spray before i even thought of bugs as it lasts for up to 5 weeks so i like to get ahead , no signs so far , i will take the perlite off and keep it dry when i water or feed .
:high-five:

Paddy, COF puts a layer of play-pit sand on top of his soil to stop bugs. It also helps retain moisture within the soil.
