Because i ONLY post a link to an item for Informational purposes…Note the recommendation NOT to buy it.

I am not here to sell stuff or pump products…im here to help people and answer questions.

Yes, it’s in cheap potting soil, only thing available at 1 of the 2 stores here lol. But it worked really well so far on my other plant

That sounds awesome and may be good enough for my first grow here

and it’s working great so far

Those will not make much at all tho so keep it in mind and make sure you are getting enough for your needs…
And if you do go that route try to check the seller out…(that its real and not a scam…like i said i have reservations about this but is a solid option if your in the right tight spot.)

And I just started adding Molasses to my watering tonight as well. But if it wont yield much i guess I’ll check into something else until I eventually get some through the mail

I’m a hydro guy but…my understanding is molasses feeds the soil (microbes) witch in turn feeds the plant…i dunno soil is all mysterious to me still lol

Right on. Much appreciated for the input, was kinda stressing about using this fertilizer all the way through its life, now I know I should definitely be stressing about it lol. Gonna try to fix this as soon as I can

That’s awesome and great to know, will definitely ask questions if needed. I’m just 2 months into my first grow and I think hydroponics is a cool system that I eventually might experiment with. Thanks a lot, very much appreciated

Yup Yup.

Doesn’t really matter what your intentions are, ebay links are not allowed. You can link the 3 sources i posted above, that is all.

I believe that you are not the seller of said item, and your intentions were simply to help another member. But if we let you post a link to ebay, then we have to let everyone else. People will take advantage of that, so under current directions, it’s not happening.

Is what i was stuck on…i have used amazon to explain what im doing a lot

seemed to include amazon in the no no list

and taking that would have upped the difficultly. lol

(i absolutely understand no rando links (ebay included)

Thanks for clarifying

Are your seeds autos? How far into the grow are you and what is your current light schedule? I tried to find this info and I’m technically Stone Age so I failed. If you have not switched and they are not autos you could let her continue to veg out and then flip once you have your desired nutrients. If you are in flower I have heard good things about FF marine quazini I know I misspelled the crap out of that. You might find it at your local nursery especially if you have one how carries the FF lineup. It’s a granular slow release that you can sprinkle on the soil and work down a little then get some ph adjuster liquid and a ph pen. Again I have not used this but the kid that loads my ffof and hf soil into my truck highly suggested it for “California tomatoes” said was getting good growth. They also have American pride. The npk number varies slightly. American pride numbers are 9 6 6 the other has a n of 10. Not sure of the other 2 numbers. Maybe just ph your water and pray that you have enough nutrients in the soil from your previous feedings. Do you feed every time? It is ok to flush at certain points. I hear you can mix up some other fertilizer i don’t know the name but it looks like an old timey bag. You have to use several different types in specific amounts. Sorry I’m not much more help then that.

It is not an auto, just a random bag seed. I am week 5 into my vegetative stage, also I got another seedling that just entered the veg stage. So it may be wise to grow her a lil more until the other one is a bit bigger. I just may do that while I wait for some nutes to come through the mail, could take over a month. We only got 2 tiny stores in town, so I was lucky to get the one kind of fertilizer they got in town lol

I also just added Molasses to my feeding agenda

Ask them if they have ph adjuster. Most places will. I don’t know what your water is like but where I am I only need ph down. Bring it down somewhere between 5.5-6.5 that will help your girls pick up more nutrients that is available. I usually ph between 6.2 & 6.5. Use a ph pen to test and adjust as necessary. My best suggestion would be to use a dropper to apply the adjuster use a couple drops stir really well and check with the pen and go a little more. Little goes a long way and you don’t want to play the game of over under with ph adjusters. I’m fairly new to all this as well. Might I suggest the an ph perfect 3 part base. If you’re going to go with advanced nutrients. Simply because it will adjust the ph without the use of a adjuster. I’m about ready to move up to the jungle juice and try it but I believe that you will have to adjust yourself which is slightly more time and labor but I have heard that it is the next step. Don’t forget to get some bloom booster like big bud or overdrive. That alone got me a decent harvest of 4 oz from 2 plants. Which I know is not much but for my very ever first try I was so proud and the smoke was great. They were just some prizes I found in the bottom of a “crackerjack box” :wink:

You can veg for a long time all they will do is grow bigger and probably yield more in the end. Best of luck with the project keep us updated.

If you don’t flip them into flower together you will need to have a way to separate them as the veg phase takes a long light period 18 hours on 6 off. The flower is 12 12 if you’re flowering plant gets longer light than that it’s not good. Could cause your girl to get scared and hermi. Nobody wants seeds lol especially ones that can be avoided. Keep an eye as they go into flower always check them for bananas if you find bananas you should remove the plant with the bananas ASAP and use a damp paper towel to gently remove them don’t let them pop open or it will end up seed city throughout the room as those are the parts that fertilize the females. If you want to grow it out just to see. I would strongly suggest separate rooms and always tend to the females first as to minimize the chance of pollination as much as possible. Happy growing
