Nutrient help and watering

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by olmbudz69, Jun 21, 2019.

  1. I picked up fox farms nutrients (Grow big and Tiger bloom) it says on instructions to water once a week with nutrients but I water once a week w out nutrients about 2 cups and a half and my baby shows no signs of it being dry. Is it safe to just water once a week but with nutrients added Everytime I water? Or should I change my watering schedule and water more often if so how constant. I planted her 5 weeks ago on June 10 if that matters. 1561141774860.jpg

  2. You started in that pail? When it get bigger it will need more water. Are there holes in the bottom of the pail?
    I think you may have thrips eating your plant.

  3. If your baby shows no signs of nutrient deficiency, or isn't beginning to slow in growth speed, I wouldn't add any nutrients until the bloom could go ahead and add some grow nutes, but if you do just be sure to start really light, I wouldn't go above 1/4th strength since your plant looks good to go on nutrients at the moment. I'm in hydro so I really don't want to offer advice on watering...I'll leave that for a soil veteran to answer. :)

  4. I am, somehow, troubled that your plant requires but 2 1/2 cup water per week.
    Typically, one would water when the soil begins to feel dry, then water thoroughly,
    until water comes out of the bottom of your WELL DRAINED POT; then, you know you are thoroughly watered.
    Ideally, that is every three days (give or take).
    Ergo, the Fox Farm TRIO schedule. (you left out the Big Bloom, eh?)
    I suppose as it gets larger, it will become more thirsty....
