OK fellow grow I need to know what dry amendments do I use to top dress my 3 gallon pots of auto flower plants I started them and fox farm Ocean forest what do I need for flowering
If in Ocean Forest you won’t need to feed for 4 to 6 weeks from your last transplant. Nutrients should be managed to a proper PPM of ~1,000. Get yourself a PPM meter and manage nutes to a runoff PPM target of 1,000 PPM.
Be sure to use a nutrient line that is balanced for cannabis.
Top dressing is slow release I thought. I did not know you can check ppm on it
They normally are slow release, but if the plants dont need it, they dont need it.
What kind of dry amendments are u planning on using?
How old are the plants? And do you have any pictures?
I use dry amendments, but they are immediately available.
Edit: I didnt even answer the question!!
I use BuildASoil stuff now. Jacks 123 is another good one tho, but you mix it into water. It comes dry and the efficiently cheap.
I used Dr Earth bloom girl for flower.
But I was not in ocean forest soil.
I have also used a dry amendment called langbeinite. It is a potassium, magnesium sulfate mineral.
Down to earth have great products like kelp meal ,crab meal ,bat guano ,sea bird guano, alfalfa meal these are all great dry amendments u just have to look at the npk rating for wat stage u need it for for flowering u want something that is low in nitrogen but higher in potassium and phosphorus but u still want a nitrogen rating of 2% or a little higher
