At first I went directly from veg nutes to bloom nutes.
I started goig 50/50 for a week or so between switching,an once in bloom add veg nutes once every 2 weeks or so.
Any opinions on am I wasting veg nutes?

I do a transition mix between VEG and flower too.

Once I'm beyond the "stretch" phase, I use a 100% "flower" mix and I don't look back from there.

I run a hydroponic DWC tote grow.

Same as Hamster. I also have a perpetual harvest and so have plants in all different phases. If vegging plants have had a recent res change, I will let them go til next res change with their veg nutes. But when I mix nutes again, they go right to flowering nutes.

How "extreme" is your Flower nute bath, THG.
You run DWC tote's still, yes?

I've been concerned about Nitrogen starving a plant in stretch.

I've only been @ this a year, still learning!!

I think it depends on the nutrient line.with cutting edge solutions.if u don't follow that feed chart and continue the grow nutes until u have established buds forming you'll run into nitrogen deficency been there done that..you use grow nutes til your plants are done stretching.usually through week two.

The GH Flora product line still has enough N in the flowering mix that I do not have problems. Some nutrient lines may be different.

Don't know whaqt you are asking when you ask how extreme it is?

just if you drop the N to -0- or if (as you answered) there is "still enough" in the flower mix


I'm starting to think (learn) that a regular reservoir swap is about as important as what's in the mix.
Just because the PPM/ph is still correct, 4 week old (used) nute-bath is not "good".
