Fertilizer question

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by deuteros, Aug 24, 2007.

  1. What are some recommended fertilizers for an indoor soil grow? I'd like to find some decent fertilizer without breaking the bank.
  2. Buy some Peters from anywhere.
  3. Is that a liquid fertilizer?
  5. can you buy Peters from anywhere? or..
  6. for growing in soil, i use a balanced fertilizer like 14-14-14 or 10-10-10...whatever i have. To promote flower development, switch to a fert. that has more phosphorus, like 15-30-15.

    Peters may make different kinds of fertilizer, but the kind I'm familiar with is water soluble. You mix it with water before applying. The drawback to that as I see it is you have to apply it on a regular schedule. Granular, and continuous release ferts. would be better in a grow that you don't visit all the time.
  7. I used peters super bloom 10-50-10 for yrs. Last I got was 3yrs ago? Last I tried I couldn't find. MG took over lowes, home depot and wal mart. Miricale Grow is BAD.

    I now use Cha ching. watersoluble and ph balanced. As w/peters I use from clone to harvest. The CC is 4x cost of peters, so where is the peters?

  8. a good all around stand alone fert is "pure blend." for hydro, pure blend pro. there's a veg and a flower formula. i also highly recommend pro-tekt from dyna gro. the silicon/silica additives promote very healthy root systems.
  9. Well, they don't sell it at the local Home Depot or Lowes so "anywhere" is a relative term.
  10. Hiigel, chill out please.

    If you are looking for cheap but good all-around ferts then Peters and Schultz are two good brands, both chemical formulations that you mix into your watering. If you are looking for something specifically designed for MJ and/or organic then there are many names and many prices out there.
  11. hey this is my first time growing and i am having great results with Earth Juice Grow. i also bought the bloom and the microblast for flowering as well. the y are all organic so synthetic blends or anything. each bottle was 6.75 i think give r take 10 cents. most hydro stores carry there stuff or you can go to eartjuice.com and it has all the info on everything. hope this helps you out a little
  12. The three numbers tell you the nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (NPK) percentages of the fertilizer in that order. For example, a fertilizer that says 10-10-10 contains 10% nitrogen, 10% phosphorus, and 10% potassium. When your plant is in vegetative growth you want a fertilizer that contains more nitrogen than the other nutrients. When flowering you want a fertilizer that has more phosphorus than the other nutrients.l
