Help me get this recipe going

Hello everyone. Im pretty much a noob at growing but trying to soak up all the knowledge that i can. I am planning on growing some white widow autos soon. Im a inside grower and currently have a bag of premier peat, coast of maine mushroom compost, worm castings and some perlite. My questions are: what are the ratios for this recipe? would you add in anything else? how would you feed them into and through veg. Thanx

There is so much more that you should be adding.

Basic ratio is 1/3 peat, 1/3 compost, 1/3 aeration/perlite.

After that there are asst minerals etc you need.

Check out “build a soil . Com”

Look at the coots mix. They sell mineral/nutrient packs for making 2.2, 3, and 3.8 cu ft batches. Better yet, call them and they can give you a consult over the phone.


As we say in the ghetto church, “Testify!”
I have utilized that resource several times- hit them up. Very helpful and many options.
(Wait,will I get in trouble for “other” place shout-outs? If so Mod,I apologize :anguished:)
SL out.


That’ll only get you about 5 weeks into veg before you’ll start to need amendments (pot is insanely nute hungry) I basically run down to earth 444 and 484(which you can just use the 444+ a phosphorus source instead) and bloodmeal with my autos heres my nute ratios in a similar medium you can skip the nectar /mr fulvic if you just want to give them 1/2 tablespoon of molasses and 1/2 teaspoon of Epsom salt for cal mag once a week but I do recommend you adding either recharge or mykos to your medium the mushrooms super charge flowering

Week 0 medium combining 5 gallon fabric pots 50% coco coir 20%compost(preferably mushroom ) 30% perlite 4 Tbsp down to earth 444 and 2 Tbsp bloodmeal
Week 3 8 Tb 444 4 Tb each of 484 and bloodmeal
Week 5 if no pistils 3 Tbsp 484
Week 0 of flower 12 Tbsp 484
Week 2 of flower 10 Tbsp 484
Water amendments once a week 1 ml of mr fulvic 2/3- 3/4 dose of nectar for the gods sample pack minus the Zeus juice (also 1 tsp of epson salt )

thank you for that info. I forgot to mention that i already have the general hydro trio of bottle nutes. How would you use those in my case? thnx

Start with a half dose at week 3 then go full by week 4 be sure to always water till about 10% runoff to clear out salts and flush them 10-14 days before harvest(as soon as you see specks of amber on sugar leaves is a good indicator) you may also need a cal mag booster with that line if I remember right(you should always have that on hand anyways)

Thank you so much for the info!!
