Today is hump day which means it’s time to get ready to feed the plants. Since all my outdoor plants are showing, I will feed them all on a bloom regiment.
I start with 4 gallons of rain water. I add about 2 tbsp (8 or 9 total) of Alaska Morbloom 0-10-10 per gallon. About 1.5-2.0 ml (6 to 8 total)of calmag per gallon. To that I add about 2 tbsp total of molasses (I use Aunt Patty’s unsulphured). I stir it up and set in a bubbler I fashioned from a hose formed in a circle with holes poked in it. I tried an air stone for a time and it was just too many problems.
Now it is at this point you can add a bag of compost or worm castings hung on the side. With the fish fertilizer I don’t do this. Mainly because I already have to cut this 1 to 1 with plain water as it is. I allow this to “brew” for about a day. I feed my bloom plants every other week with about 450 ml and make sure they get a good soaking at least every week.
My experiment tent is full. 4 in veg and 4 in bloom.
The veg plants have plenty of food to last them until they start to flower and then they go on the bloom regiment. For my veg plants I don’t normally feed them the first 2 months because of my potting mixture (1/2 Black Kow and 1/2 coco coir with a couple of handfuls of perlite per gallon of mixture). It is plenty for the autoflowers and I didn’t (won’t) feed them the first two months and then I think they’ll just take to the bloom regiment.
