I use coco-peat (equal parts coir and sphagnum) heavy with vermiculite and perlite cut moderately with organic potting soil (to avoid Cal-Mag products) enriched with organic non soluble granules for slow release and the hydroponic trio with addition of alska fish fertilizer (5/1/1) for balance of nitrogen as needed swapped with the 3 part soluble bloom enhancement series (Open Sesame/Beastie Blooms/Ch-Ching) for flowering. I have been told I use too many different fertilizers many times over by many people, but the variety feed has served me well over the years. I water daily and monitor how much they take in and adjust accordingly to equal or less than daily consumption feeding every three to five days 1 ml per quart as listed for tsp/gal (for 4/5 tsp gal dilution) as needed until they reach dry and than feed based on week and water back up over the next one to two days and resume daily watering and weekly feeding as before. Full tsp/gal tends to burn to the point of crisp tips within a day even if followed by water, 4/5 tsp (4ml)/gal doesn’t damage from overfeeding as long as it is given less often and immediately watered if leaf tips curl up. Everything is given at Ph controlled and buffered @ 5.0-5.5 for optimal uptake of the medium and peak release of magnesium and calcium. i get up to two inch a day growth under 1 bank (out of 3) of 2x4’ T5HO paired with a 150w HPS. Take note: they don’t always get 2 feedings of each weeks scheduled feed and the 3 part soluble bloom enhancement series (Open Sesame/Beastie Blooms/Ch-Ching) should only be given once to twice each at critical points (timing is everything) by 1/2 stand-alone instructions if not on a refgular feeding day and 1/2 of “with other nutrients” instructions if it is, though i tend to give them a day apart in this case, enhancer first so as not to over-power them with it. Open Sesame is best given the day of or before the first 12/12 cycle and again 2 weeks later if needed (ie. branches without buttons), essentially on the last day weeks 4 and again on the open of 6 if needed . Beastie Blooms is best given as soon as the buttons open and every 2 weeks until Giving cha-ching on the start of the second to last week and again on the start of the final week to promote ripening (Cha-Ching can also be used twice a week to encourage early ripening of longer-haul strains, though I highly reccomend against this technique if you are looking for any kind of quality, especially in quantity), and here is where it gets tricky: Beastie Blooms on the close of weeks 6, 8, & 10 for ALL strains (and 12 &14 for longer flowering strains as applicable), and Cha-Ching on the start of week 11 & 12 for 8 week strains, 12 & 13 for 9 week, 13 &14 for 10 week, 14 &15 for 11 week and 15 &16 for full twelve week strains. You have to know what you are working with to time them right. They contain high feed ratios along with essential and non-essential micronutrients for thriving, exceptional blossoms. But over using them or mis-using them can really hurt your yeild’s end-weight or quality or even both. Some people even urge to use them in place of one scheduled feeding for the week, but I end up seeing a lot of deficiencies whenever I have tried it that way in anything but soil, and lacked the brunt of the desired effect given in place of one feeding each week in soil. I have used the 3-part soluble enhancement series for years on more than just cannabis, and with it grown a 3lb foot-and-a-half Jalapeno, a half pound Habernero the size of a softball, vines full of 1-2 pounder Tomatoes, and Sunflowers with 3 foot to 4 foot across HEADS weighing in at up to 35 lbs of flower cut from tree-trunk sized stalk (4’ diameter and 12’ high) bearing up to 23 lbs of sunflower seeds each, and did it using the method described above for timing. Bottom line: use less than it says once to twice weekly depending on how fast your plants go through nutrients. Bigger plants need every other watering feeds on sometimes 2-3 times a day watering. And in hydro systems its 2-3 ml/gal to reach the recommended/desired EC and PPM, even starting with RO water each change. In my systems I change the water every other week, run the system with clean water for about 2 hours to help flush everything out and reduce nutrient residue, and change it again using the appropriate concentration for the starting week and topping off the second week with pre-adjusted solution for the appropriate week. This does not always get the appropriate nutrient levels, but it’s much less work than changing out a dozen systems each and every week. I hope this helps understand how the schedules work for those needing it.
