Hey all,

 

My plants are about two weeks old.  Starting to push out their 5th set of nodes.  about 6" high.  My question is when should I start foliar feeding. 

 

I will be feeding with Pro-Tekt, Neem Oil, Fulvic Acid, Liquid Kelp and Aloe Juice.

 

Don't want to blast a plant that isn't ready to handle it.

 

When do you guys usually start?

Foliar applications contribute more than simple nutrition, if thats the tact yall are taking in this regard.

 

It's more about the secondary effects, ie cytokinins from kelp extract, than about correcting deficiencies or any such thing, though it is very much possible to do so.

 

I'd wait until you start your training regime before applying anything.

By training do you mean LSTing, Supercropping, scrogging, etc...?

You can do it now. I spray my clones with a mix similar to that... floralicious/protekt @ 1tsp/gal.

As a really skewed reference, I spray any rooted cuttings I take in from others; I just feel it's not necessary for those wee ones yet.

 

I start training mine around 8 inches, though height isn't always the best indicator the plant is ready to be "pushed" via outside stimulus.

 

This is just an opinion, play around and find your groove.

 

Just remember one thing, as it always helps (me at least); take it easy, it's not a race.
