This whole things started as an experiment really just to see if it would work, but i found myself investing more and more money into it so im hoping that it turns out in my favor..


Using a 400w mh light (got it for free just had to buy the bulb)


I have used it once so far making sure i didnt use the ratio it says on the back i actually 1/4th'd it.
my question is anyone know if the nutes i bought are alright? and how often should i be using it?


Nute I bought, at the hydroponic store they were originally $45 each but i got a deal on the two ($40 for both) because one bottle had leaked out a little.


Suggestions for usage?

I think the veg nutrients should have all N P and K, 1-0-2 has no p in it your gonna most likely get a deficiency, looks like its already showing deficiency, they might be ok but I'm not sure... I would give them about 18ml in a gallon of water, your not gonna burn them with that weak of nutrients... you could probably even go 25ml to the gallon and wouldn't see much nutrient burn, but I wouldnt give them over 20ml until they are bigger

on the bottle of both it says word for word:

Instruction: Use both parts together creating a fusion of nutritional elements for intensive growth, flowering and fruiting.


Should i use only the growth one for vegging or follow their instructions and use both.



what kind of soil are you using?


and im using coconut coir

Every plant needs N, P, and K among other elements. COCo coir provides no nutrients at all so you must provide everything for them when you fertilize them. You MUST mix both of those products together to give plants N, P, and K. Just PLEASE don't mix them together before you add water!!! Add both of those nutrients TO THE WATER. It appears that you may have either an early nutrient deficiency in some of those plants or a pH problem. have you checked the pH of your run-off?

also...the Grotek GROW has NO phosphorus and the BLOOM has no nitrogen...so you MUST use BOTH

Fuck lol guess I shoulda did a little research before I got my nutes but w.e. I got it cheap and I'll have to make it work. But as for nute defiency or a ph problem I'm pretty sure it would be nute defiency because I had them under some cfls for a week didn't no that coconut coir didn't have any nutrients so they were growing for around a week and a bit with nothing. But I'm going to go get a ph tester within the next few days tho

Plants will double sometimes even triple in size when they flower, so veg until it's about half the size you want it to be when it's done... and depending on strain it will take about 8-12 weeks to flower.

Well, it depends on how much you want to yield. I have flowered after 2 weeks of Veg and ended up with plants that made short buds and only yielded about a quarter oz each. I think that optimally, you want to veg for 6 to 8 weeks and then switch your lights to 12/12. optionally you can prune the tops of your plants, veg longer, and create plants that have more than 1 main cola to increase your yield. It's all good...just have fun and don't stress too much...you will learn so much on this journey and it is sooo rewarding....
