    Im using fox farm ocean forest soil and I have fox farm big bloom, tiger bloom, and grow big.. or whatever those three are.lol.
    I was planning on starting at 2 weeks old, but a buddy started his from day one..
    When should I start. Which should I use? 1/4 or 1/2 of what they recommend or?

    start with grow big then I think it is like 2 weeks later add big bloom as well. FF has a chart.

    Big Bloom is like a supplement which you can use from start to finish.

    I like to wait around 2 weeks before I start using the veg nutrients.

    Go to the Fox Farm website. I used the recommended dosage from their online feeding schedule.

    Not to hijack the thread but could I nute my plants with FF and use MG soil?
    I could get FF soil but really dont want to strees them out and make them fag out?

    They are 1 week into flowering.

    Thanx

    Of course MG soil will work. it managed to support the plant this long.

    ^^ Yah thats what I thought but how will the plant react with the MG soil giving off nutes slowly plus the FF nutes I add during watering??

    Thanx

    now you know why FF soil is preferred. simply use nutes at a lesser amount. 1/4 maybe 1/2 strength.

    thanks buddy.
    so according to that table, if I want to start nutes on week 2, I would add 2 teaspoons of grow big and 2 tablespoons of big bloom to a gallon of water?

    EDIT: So if I go with half strength that would be 1tsp grow big and 1 tbsp big bloom to a gallon?
