    are you growind hydro? If not, then dont worry about ppm, which means Parts Per Million. If you are growing hydro, and just figured out what that is then you are screwed and need to do lots more research. If you are growing in soil, then mix 1.8 mL nutrients to 1 liter of water.
    Online you should be able to find feeding schedules for advanced nutes. Or call a hydroponics store and ask them. Then simply follow the schedule, it is pretty simple as long as you know how to mix things.

    Are you growing in soil or hydro? Do you have a ph and ppm meter?

    That was uncalled for. Everyone learns when they learn, some sooner some later. Hang in there Albert, read up on your chosen grow style and you'll get there. As far as not needing to know anything about ppm in soil growing, that's not right either. I know alot of outdoor growers who mix large batches of nutes who do use a ppm meter to get it right. It may not be as important to know/understand as it is in hydro, but it's still a good idea to know what the water profile you're watering/feeding with is like.

    I completely understand the information overload you are dealing with. I grew outdoors for many years, but due to circumstances beyond my control, I had to move indoors, and made the switch to hydro. I spent several weeks pouring over this site, reading books that had been passed on to me an generally studying every source of info I could get my hands on. By the time that was over, I was having migrane headaches, tremors and a strong desire to hang myself...with a hemp rope of course! Anyhow, I finally decided that I was overdoing the study part and just needed to get the show on the road. Sure, I had a few problems along the way, but by keeping my journal current, and the incredible patience of any number of growers, especially Pan4Gol49, I'm a couple of weeks away from a good harvest, and a hell of alot wiser about the whole hydro process. Do I know it all? No way, but I know a whole lot more now than I did. And you will too. Don't get discouraged, even if you lose a grow or two. Failure, for the intelligent grower, is a learning tool.
