Nutrients when to start feeding

Hey guys noobie here. Just wondering if anyone can let me know when I should start feeding nutrients. Seedlings are almost up now. Should I wait or start feeding right now. And should I feed every other watering or how often. Thanks.

I’m trying to grow strawberry cough. So far I just have a closet grow in regular soil. I’m watering every other day roughly. I’ll be using a grow tent eventually right around xmas time. Right now I’m just using 2 led light ones a 25 watt grow light the others a regular 9 watt led. I must be doing something right lol I have seedling growing just wondering in the nutrients and light schedule. Thanks

The best time to start using nutrients is between 2 weeks to 1 month after it has sprouted and have been growing for the time frame I wrote about.

Awesome thanks!

This is assuming you aren’t in fresh, correct potting soil. If you are, no nutes AT ALL until flower (at least!) If you are in MG soil you won’t want to use anything.

@Myfriendis410 To true…my soil is from May 2018 so my 2 weeks to 1 month is based off that.

Just regular soil from the store. Only has perlite

Can you take a picture of the bag with ingredients or fin it on Amazon and copy the link or take a screenshot?

Cannabis has a distinct life cycle that requires a specific, fairly narrow PH range to be optimal. This allows nutrients to taken up by the plant correctly and the use of soils not designed for cannabis cause (usually) a BIG drop in PH in mid flower, just when you least need it to, causing lockouts and deficiencies and basically all kinds of trouble. Now is the time to find out and rectify if possible.

Used only fish shit the last feeding and all plants were getting GH two times a day for the last 9/10 weeks just switched to flower

This is a good start. I don’t know why you would be watering twice daily; let the media drain/dry out a bit for root development. You can do a simple Lucas Formula all the way up to using the entire line. This is something I am doing with my current grow with good results. I’ll put up a pic of my last plant in Promix with the GH product line. I’m using everything but Rapid Start and Dry Kool Bloom.

14 oz of cured flower


And how often should I feed nutes?

@sperreault Depends on how you want to do it and how your girls respond. I generally break a full dose and into 3 feedings per week. Say nutes and water on Monday. Tuesday is just water if needed. Wed feed nutes and water. Thursday is just water.

You get the idea. This works for me.

You need a grow light bro. Find a cheap blurple on Amazon. You can get one for like 50$ that’ll grow buds.
