On my second grow, and last time I added my nutes too early and almost burned them up. As the photos indicate, they have just started to lift up and develop their first tiny leaves, and so far have only been sitting in the NFT trays with the pump running distilled 5-6 pH water through.

I plan on using the same two nutes as last time, as I have quite a bit left over from last year's grow. I have GH Maxigro (10-5-14) for veg, and Maxibloom (5-15-14) for flower. Thought I would keep it simple since my res is only a little less than 5 gal.

Any recommendations on when/how much to begin with? I welcome any feedback, thanks--

I wait 2-3 weeks into veg. You can kinda tell when they are asking for nutes

"cotyledons" are the very first round leaves that emerge from the seed.

Thanks Hick--I'm at just about one week or so since sprout, and the cotyledons are still a healthy green. I will watch them and wait for their signal, or just add a little nute snack after two or so weeks if I haven't seen it yet. Thanks for the help, all--
