What do you use?

  1. curious about Lucas formula or do you recommend another mix of nutes? Do you change nute strength when switching to flower? ive heard not to but i figured i'de ask.
    Thanks blades:D
  2. I use lucas formula. Great results, check out my grow journal if you're curious. link in sig.

    I personally use 1/4strength through the seedling/cutting/early veg phase, transition to 1/2str during agressive veg growth, and go full strength when I transition to flower and stay that way until flush.

    I get a bit of nute burn at the very beginning of the 1/4str, they could probably go 1/8 or use no nutes for a while but they have always recovered.
  3. i start with 5/10 as soon as I drop them in, along with some hygrozme and superthrive. I dont change that until flower and after a flush then onto 8/16 with some additives here and there.

    keep in mind, everystrain is going to react a little bit differently.
  4. No matter what brand of nutes you use go with what the Mfg recommends. I use the GH three part product and have been successful in the grow.
    I believe that these people have been in the business for long time and have a track record. Switching around with different formulas will get you in trouble. So far so good and should a grow go south on this stuff then its time to try something else but for my money the GH stuff is good. There might be better out there but I don't mess with success.
  5. forgot to add this link
  6. ^ you don't get nute burn putting 5/10 on new plants?

    I got a ton of nuteburn with 4/8 on seedlings

  7. nope, no burn so far. but im also not starting from seedlings, but from clones who were fed RO water, superthrive & hygrozme. I wait until the roots look like this:


    here's what they look like 5 days after dropping into the DWC

    sorry for the ginormous pic...
