I'm germinating right now and I'm starting to research ahead of time. I just need someone to hold my hand when it comes to what nutes to use and at what stage (Weeks? Time?) to use which nutrients. I've read over several different forums and everyone has a different say on which is best. With that being said, my idea that I'm thinking of trying is this: (But I still need hand-holding when it comes to when I should use which nute at what time?) I'm going to be planting in 2 parts FFOF, 1 part FF Light Warrior, with sprinkled perlite throughout, and a bit of dolomitic lime. At what stage from sprout do I start first phase of nutes? I heard the FFOF in-soil nutes will last me at least 3-4 weeks, so that only gives me roughly 4-5 weeks until I need to have my shit together. The nutes I PLAN/PLANNED on using (Researching leaves me going "well, maybe I SHOULDNT use that..") were: The FoxFarm Trio: Big Bloom, Grow Big, Tiger Bloom. In all honesty, I've read that this is the line-up for beginners/newbs. I've heard that Advanced Nutrients line-up was "better for the more advanced grower", my thought process was "Use what you know, and since I know FF soil works, I'm assuming the FF line-up will be solid as well. The other thing I was planning on using was AN Bud Candy. And before anyone starts with the "USE BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES!!! RAAAAH" It would make me feel more comfortable using something that is made for plants on plants than something that is made to eat. It may very well be "snake oil" has several people suggest, but I've heard good things and all in all it makes me feel better to know it's made for plants. Also, is it worth it to also get the FoxFarm Cha Ching, Open Sesame, and Beastie Bloomz? I haven't researched these guys as much and I want a bountiful harvest, but for the money/risk of plant burn/bigger yield ratio... What's the best bang for the buck without overdoing it or fucking me in the long run? SO, with all of that being said: Those of you who agree with the FF Trio + Bud Candy = At what time and stage should I start introducing the nutes? And which is first (Big Bloom and Tiger Bloom... tends to get confusing) Those of you who don't agree with FF Trio + Bud Candy = Why? What would you suggest would be easier/better/more beneficial? The strain that I'm currently growing is 5 bag seeds practicing for the Fem. Auto Purple Ryder I have on the way from Attitude (Made it past customs, YES!) Any help, comments, suggestions, and feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks so much guys!
