FLORA SERIES TRIO - Quick Question?

Do you use all 3 Micro, Gro and Bloom from start to finish or do you use Micro and Gro during Veg then Micro and Bloom during Flowering?

My first time growing hydroponic I’ve been using just Micro and Gro for now just wondering if I should be using Bloom as well during Veg. I’m growing Autoflower - Northern Lights

Thanks so much for taking the time to respond.

I used the trio last grow and yes use all three following the ratio gh recommends and dilute to get the desired ppm. All 3 are needed but in different ratios as the plant matures. To not use all 3 is keeping needed things from your plant.

I’d stick with the Fox Farms feeding schedule below, but try half strength at first. I never went full strength with the FF trio, maybe 3/4 at most. But yes, Big Bloom and Grow Big during veg and then all 3 during flowering.

If you use the schedule on the side of the bottle. You should do good. Start easy and work your way up. I made this for a quick reference. I am doing autos and am at 1/2 on week 3strength. Moving up to 3/4 for week 4. I would keep notes on what you feed. And try not to go by what others feed with different nutes. They are not all the same. 650ppm of GH is equal to what 950 is for Jacks at full strength.

Does ff schedule work with gh lineup?

1 Like

No, that’s only for the Fox Farm nutes, if using GH nutes, follow their schedule.

If I used the 2 part Maxi dry stuff instead of the trio would I still need all the other things like Kool bloom and such? Could I just replace the trio part with the maxi and use this same schedule?

I’m not sure my friend. I can only speak on the stuff I’ve been using. Sorry I couldn’t be more help.

Hello there: found this thread because I’m adding Armor Si to my nutes.

So far I use GH MicroFloBloom plus a cal mag. While I am trying to stay as simple as possible and avoid supplements, my grow is hydro and the fact that silica is everywhere in soil and nowhere in water and plays a role in trichrome production sold me on using Armor Si. Plus it looks like a quart will last me a long time.

In that list of other GH products you use, the extra nutes, I’m sure you believe in them all but are they enhancements or essentials?

Personal just enhancements. If you are shooting for weight and size . The extra will do the trick.

You’re missing Hydroguard.

I’m RDWC and use GH Flora trio plus GH CalMag, GH Silicon, and Hydroguard. My roots look fine.

Thank you! I’m not, I just didn’t list Hydroguard because I didn’t consider it a nutrient but you are right and very kind to take the time to mention it.

How often do you change airstones? I upgraded my stones half way thru veg, about July 1. Do they need to be changed or cleaned? I can see that being beneficial but I’d definitely stress the plants switching them out. They’re bubbling ok best I can see.

I haven’t changed mine, but plan to clean between grows: https://thehydroponicsplanet.com/how-to-clean-air-stones-for-hydroponics-in-5-easy-steps/

edit: but then again, I have two stones per grow container, plus two stones in the resv…

Are those amounts per gallon?

Just add 3x the listened amount posted above.
