The fox farms flowers kiss is a foliage feed, and was wondering if it’s worth it to make the purchase, and if so, have you noticed any results different than what you’d put into soil (or hydro!) Or is it all a marketing gimmick? thanks. @Countryboyjvd1971 @Hogmaster @Rugar89 @bluntley420 @Stratos @bob31
I’ve never used it, but I think @Wishingilivedina420state said he has used everything from FF. Hopefully he will chime in.
Thanks for the tag @Rugar89 and yes I use everything Fox farm right now and love it . Flowers kiss is a great foliar spray I started feedings at quarter strength and never went past half with good results I think. Also when mixed with bioag ful-power humic acid works even better in my opinion. ( humic acid is about the only thing not in any FF products that I know of. That’s why I add it.)
Now this grow I haven’t used flowers kiss at all and yes I see a difference, veg growth has slowed a good bit. Also with foliar sprays becareful of a lockout. If your foliar sprays are right your plant could live off of it and not get nutes from soil at all. Or if Ph is to far off on the spray you could start a problem.
Since flowers kiss is so light in npk I was out of big bloom and used it as a frost feeding for clones. Not as a spray just water feeding at ph 6.5 but was great didn’t Burn at all.
Thanks @Wishingilivedina420state I’ll probably pick some of that up tomorrow, along with the blossoming nutrients, I know I was supposed to use one of those a week ago, hope its not too late. I also noticed that humid acid was MISSING from the FF line. I purchased the “RAW Npk” brand of humid acid. While FF has kelp added, I purchased some more by the same brand. Do you use the humid acid as a foliar spray? Or soil? You weren’t clear. Appreciate the response.
Humic acid can be used ether way. Check the back of the bottle for instructions on mix ratio. I use it both ways my self and love it , I wouldn’t use eather product with out the other, but I recommend the bioag as its actually mislabeled and should be fulvic acid. With is actually better for foliar sprays. I think thats right . Utube humic acid video by 4hydroponics.com it explains everything a lot better than I can.
I use the full power, bottle in the middle
Also I don’t give full power ever feeding at full strength, I’ve cut back to half strength fulpower and nutes. Outside of Fox Farm the only other add on i use is silica blast but that’s for my coco grow.
@Wishingilivedina420state I’ve noticed since adding the humid acid and kelp my uptake has increased, and I’ve backed off the nutrients, because I saw a little nute burn. Now knowing I can use the humid acid as a foliar spray, I’ll add that to the list of things to do. Isn’t it best to spray them right before the lights go out? I’ve heard the droplets magnify the light on the leaves and burn them…
Yeah it’s best not to spray in direct light or high intensity direct light. I bring my girls to the shower and leave the door open for an hour then ph water to rinse then off let set another hour then back to the tent. Allwsys on a water day and only once a week . Since Sunday is my only day off I reserved it for pk boosters, foliar feedings, Ph meter calibration,
Not sure. Haven’t used it but I definitely trust FF. In fact, I haven’t used a foliar spray at all. Should I?
@bluntley420 evidently we should start! We’ve been missing out!
That’s totally your call @bluntley420 it’s personal performance.
I used it in veg stage it works good I aplly in the morning either just before light on or just after just a light mist is all you need
Foliar spraying the nutrients are taken into plant almost immediately so just take it easy and don’t apply everyday
A little goes along way I spray once maybe twice a week in veg at most
@Covertgrower so I’d say yes it’s worth it
@Countryboyjvd1971 so after I flip the light schedule I shouldn’t spray anymore, or I shouldn’t spray up until the point I see buds start to form?
You can spray up till you see the flower starting after that it’s not a good idea
I usually stop when I flip but you can continue if you wanted @Covertgrower
@Covertgrower, @Wishingilivedina420state, @Countryboyjvd1971, @Rugar89
Quick question (off topic)…Where do you guys recommend to buy seeds from? Seems like there’s a lot places to choose from nowadays. For autoflowering and reg. feminized in terms of prices, shipping time, seed quality & customer service?
My guess is that ILGM is probably the answer but like I said there’s so much out there and I’m not very good with too many options haha
I would answer this @bluntley420, however I will mention it’s against forum rules to mention other companies on this forum. If you are looking for another company, I would suggest to google cannabis seeds for sale, and go from there. I would suggest to find one that takes credit card for convenience. I haven’t figured out bitcoin yet, but that’s just me. With out mentioning any companies names, and following forum rules. That’s the best I can do.
Appreciate it @Covertgrower ! Didn’t mean to break any rules. Guess somebody didn’t read the rule book! lol
I just received my seeds from ILGM and immediately put one seed in wet paper towel. The next she had sprouted and now in soil. All in 3 days! ILGM really is the place you should get your seeds from
Thanks for the advice @Mic. I was 90% sure that I was going to go through ILGM and you’ve convinced me
Good luck on your grow!
Thanks, you too!
