When do I start adding nutes

I’m just about to get started growing for 1st time…When do I start adding nutes to my plants… I have FFOF potting soil…And FF trio liquid nutrients…Do I need to add any other dry nutes?..and can anyone recommend a dosing and schedule chart to roughly go by?..I am going to grow Zkittlez, gelato and wedding cake autoflowers…

hfof already contains lots of nutrients, you shouldn’t have to add any of the fox farm trio for a few weeks (4-5 at least). Get yourself a bottle of calmag and add to every watering at 3ml/g. Once it’s time to add nutrients, start with 1/4 - 1/2 and see how they respond.

Ocean Forest good soil as @Dave101 mentioned contains lots of nutes. I have had ocean Forest Carry My plants up close to flowering stage without feeding any nutes.

CalMag all the way to the left. Fox Farm has a good one by the name of Gringo I think.

Welcome to the forums, I’m also on my first grow. I’m growing in fox farms happy frog and I’m 5 weeks plus 3 days in.
I have only added cal mag and two feedings of recharge, but none of the trio products yet.
My ppm last watering was still in the 3000 range. I’d wait awhile before adding any, but that’s just what I’ve read and been told.
Search the forums and read as much as possible, you’ll find all the answers you need here and more!

Also I just noticed what you’re set to grow. I’m interested in seeing how they go for you. I’ve been kicking around the idea of ordering that mix.

Welcome to the forum, they say wait for 4 weeks before adding anything but I have seen where it is more like 6 weeks because that soil is so enriched. Especially if your not watering to run off early to wash out nutrients and salts.

Add 30% perlite to your soil, cannabis thrives in airey soil.

As others have said no nutrients needed until week 4+ you’ll want a tds and ph pen, water with Ph’d water at 6.5 and when your at week 4 give enough water so it pours out the bottom 20%
Check the tds of that water.
Your going to want to keep your tds above 1200 in order to ensure its getting enough food
