Can anyone tell me at what age (days or weeks) or stage of leaf & plant growth a Caramelicious Auto-Fem plant would be considered to be in the early the vegetative state and ready for increased amounts of nutrients in water from the amounts used in the seedling stage? The plants are growing in Coco and Perlite and I’m using Emerald Harvest 3 part nutrients?
Thanks for the tag, wish I could help but I’m all soil.
Welcome to the forum!! So I would say if you want to be super careful you can wait until the cotyledons start turning yellow and then upping the nutrients, im in coco but I’m using jacks 321, so I’m feeding full strength from the very beginning, when I was using gh I would use about a quarter strength for the first few weeks and then slowly start ramping it up to full strength.
Thanks for the welcome and your response! I’m a first time grower so lots of unknowns with the process. The cotyledons are still green at three weeks so I’ll hold off a while longer before increasing nutrients. Seems that from what I’ve been reading about auto’s and nutrients usually less is best course of action.
I think coyotecody had you set. I’ve been feeding 950 or so ppm from beginning as well without issue.
One thing you may want to consider is at least giving low dose of calcium supplement like calmag.
Okay great thanks for the heads up! I had neglected to mention earlier that I have been using a calmag 2-0-0 supplement from the beginning.
