Not Sure How To Read The Labels

Discussion in 'Hydroponic Growing' started by Spicymocha, May 31, 2013.

  1. Hey everybody, If this has been said before I apologize I didn't find it on here. I'm just starting out but before I go further I don't understand the feed schedule on the label.It says use 5 ml per gallon. use at every watering. On the label as I have circled in yellow the feed sheet..So do I give it 15 doses first week 18 doses the second like what is that?

    I am doing a DWC in 5 gallon buckets I have the pureblend pro grow and bloom and karma and also the ph up ph down by optimum.   I just want to know how I am supposed to do the feeding, im gone for 12-14 hours per day.
    Hoping somebody will help me understand what to do in simpler terms and much appreciation. cheers

  2. I am pretty sure those numbers (15, 18 and then 20 in weeks 1, 2 and 3 of veg stage) refer to the ml's of nutes per gallon of water you are to add to your reservoir. (I assume you have a reservoir)
     
  3. yeah those figures are how many ml per gallon, it says in the top left. these figures will be your maximum amounts, most likely your plants will never want to be in a solution of that strength. do you have an EC meter? you need one to work out what strength your plants require at any given time. the dosage amounts on the label are pretty pointless
