  1. Okay so i am trying to understand what exactly is it in certain nutes that are used for blooming and vegetative states....Like how there is 10-10-10 , 10-10-15....ect....Can someone help me understand what those mean (each placing of the number or whatever like how there is nitrogen..bla something i dunno them thats why im asking..) And HOW DO U KNOW what one to use for vegatative and bloom,,,like what are the differences u should get?

    Thanks tons for help guys
  2. It will tell you right on the label what the numbers mean. They are the percentages for nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium respectively (N-P-K). For veg you need nitrogen, for flower you need phosphorus.
  3. oh ok thanks a ton man, all i knew before was that it meant 'grow/micro/bloom'..but now i accually know what they aree....thanks lots :)
  4. oh wait doesnt bloom go last? so wouldnt it be N-K-P? or is potasium for bloom?
  5. Its always NPK Nitrogen Phosphorus Potassium. For veg the N number should be the highest such as 20-9-9. For flower or bloom the P should be the highest such as 9-20-12.
  6. ohh ok thanks guys for all the help
