Good morning everyone, I honestly have no idea if I am allowed to ask this question or if it belongs in a different area of the site, no hard feelings..if in the wrong area I will delete.
I am only posting this here because I will be using the CKS seeds and I assume every seed is different, and now here we are
I have some great autoflower seeds from CKS and I will be ready to start them in about 2 weeks when other items arrive and I get my area clean and disinfected as much as possible,
I am starting only AutoFlower from CKS as my 1st grow, and I have everything I feel is needed except nutrients.
I know everyone has their own ways of feeding and what works and doesnt.
From what I can tell, the feeding of nutrients seems to happen on week 3-5 depending on strain all the way until its ready to be flushed. I like numbers broken down as easy as possible for me, mainly because I dont wanna screw this up. Its a learning process but I feel I have a handle on it up until the nutrients.
I dont want to burn the plants, but I want to feed them as much of every nutrient they can handle during this short growing and flowering period to maximize everything as much as possible
So couple quick questions...
I was looking at purchasing General Hydroponics nutrient kit (FloraGrow, FloraBloom & FloraMicro)
I dont think I will need all of them where the soil is organic and has nutrients that get released which makes me think I should be good for the first couple weeks without adding any food.
Using the instructions on these bottles, should I go EXACTLY by the label when it comes to measuring the amount of nutrients I am placing into my water? I am worried where the growth is so short and happens so quickly that I may over feed with too much nutrients during various stages of their cycles. Should I mix as directed, or cut the solution down less than recommend per liter or gallon? If I have to cut the solution down, what would you recommend?
I was looking at the General Hydroponics feeding schedule and there is talk about PPM..is this something I should be looking for? Been reading some but still dont understand it.
Total noob here, sorry if this is a dumb question.
