big bloom and grow big will get you through veg. for flower tiger bloom is good stuff and you'll also want to check out things like beastie bloom, cha-ching, open sesame are all good too for different stages. You basically want to get Big Bloom Grow Big and Tiger Bloom and then go from there.

I wouldn't recommend using the feeding soil. It is noutoriously "hot" an may not fare well when the ladies are little. If you do go with it don't try to add any FF stuff to it.

if you have to use it yeah flush it out real good but not while teh seedlings are in there. You're going to have to flush it out and then let it dry so you can break it up again and get some oxygen in there or else you'll be in bad shape. And yes you're still going to want to wait a while before feeding them anything. As for using just one nutrient its hard to say, they work in a tandum but if you're going to get anything i'd vote for grow big and tiger bloom.

"Time release"[/u]...feeds for 3 months. It is nearlly impossible to "flush" this type soil.
I've seen cheap ph meters at Home depot for around $15 I think.
Fox Farms soil isn't "cheap" I pay $13-$16 p/bag for the big bags. A small bag for one plant shouldn't be over about $5.

BEJOHNST "big bloom and grow big will get you through veg. for flower tiger bloom is good stuff"<-----(wrong)(right)---->grow big is for veg and big bloom and tiger bloom are used together for flower and are excellent. u can tell the difference in days once u start using in veg.just make sure to read ack of bottles good they give thorough instructions for soil or hydro

yeah dudes
big grow is for the vegetative stage
big bloom is for both veg and flower
tiger bloom is for flower
use ocean forest soil
you can go to foxfarm's website and they have a feeding schedule there

I am using FF soil and nutes and thought I would point out that there are 2 different strengths of 'grow big'. I didn't know this before I bought it and luckily the shop owner gave me the stronger stuff, which seems to be working fine. Didn't know about the 'big bloom' used in veg though.

So do you think it would be more beneficial to use both Grow Big and Big Bloom during VEg or could i just use one of em and still get the same yield amount. I guess basically what Im asking is what are the benefits with each nute?

My plants are not showing any sort of deficiency (yet) from just 'grow big' but this is my first grow. My plants in soil are all potential mothers so I was hoping to use one mix for vegging. My advice would be if you are going full cycle in dirt, to go ahead and get both. If you haven't started yet, you really have 3 weeks after germination to decide on nutes.

the bottle says for veg only. i go by the bottle.

Where does it say that? I see "For Lush Vegative Growth" but nothing about it being used only in veg.

Power Bug - I would get Grow Big if you're only going to get one veg fert. High in Nitrogen and will get you through. But then again I personally don't really feed until the 3rd week of growth and by that time they're almost ready to flower...
