1/2 TSP (2.5ML) BIG Bloom

Hey shorty, have you found out how to put your grow journal in your signature?

Welcome to the forum, I start my seedlings in smaller planters, a cup size, and water until they get bigger then I start a quarter strength feed of nutes since there is nothing beneficial in coco, then once they outgrow the cup I uppot to their final home. I don't add calmag until I see a definite deficiency to treat.

Also read the thread in my journal, "13 words.." it's a great read and you'll get a ton of information from the first few pages, the original poster is no longer on the site but that thread is a great read for feeding in coco.

So many people have pointed out that i should have started in a solo cup, is it critical to the point where i still should transfer it to a smaller cup? Will the girls be okay if i leave them in their current 3G bags?

I normally only let about the 1st inch of coco dry out before watering again
Coco is drain to waste feeding, feed it until 15-20% of it drains out of the pots, feed daily once or twice a day, so don't worry about the top inch drying out, that's more of an old school soil watering process, so by doing this you draw oxygen into the coco and flushing out the last feed, thus avoiding any nutrients or salt build up.
After it drains out throw away what drained out and don't let your pots sit in old solution, I have my cloth pots elevated on plant stands and remove the old nutrients from the trays with a shop vac.
Happy growing!

When you say feed daily once or twice a day, do you mean just PH balanced water? or do you mean feed it nutrients ?
