Hey MP gotta quick question about my auto grow that's about 3wks in from seed. The soil I'm using is Happy Frog and since its got some nutes in it I haven't bought nutrients. I'm planning on buying the GH flora 3 part.My question is since autos have a short veg stage do I need to buy the " Grow" or can I just buy the macro and bloom? TY

I don't use the Grow. Only Micro and Bloom. See the Lucas Formula.
It works nice for soil.
Be aware that autos need less ferts then "normal plants" :aok:

I no longer grow autos but back when I did I never fed them the grow...I went right to Micro and Bloom. They hve such a short veg time i felt they didnt need it. I hve been using GH 3 part for a while now and love it. Most times I don't use the Grow with my 12-12 strains either. The Micro has a good deal of N in it I believe. If my plants get a lil light green I will mix up a feeding with the grow but I feed hvy and usually they stay dark green. I grow in soil by the way not hydro.

No grow just 2 parts Bloom to 1 part Micro. Lucas formula. Easy peasey.

You are probably going to need Cal-Mag also. I always have to add Cal-Mag with my GH nutes. I never used the Lucas formula in veg--just not enough N. I would worry a bit about just using the Lucas on autos their entire life.

Hemp Goddess thanks for the input. I will pick up some Cal-Mag today. About the Cal-Mag do you use it in every feeding or what? TY

I don't run autos--so am not really sure. With my photoperiod plants, I start the Cal-Mag when I put them into flowering. If you just bought the GH micro and bloom, I would maybe look for something to provide some extra N for a few weeks.

Went to shop and got the GHgro. Got a quick question why does the gro have less nitrogen than the macro?

Yeah I believe that is why the Lucas formula works. I went a whole grow last time without using the GH Grow. I do however feed on the hvy side. I actually bought one gallon bottles of the Micro and Bloom and hve a small bottle of Grow for emergencies. Jmo

Hey Hamster is there any order I should be feeding ? I think I read somewhere you should always feed macro before anything is that right

It's the way you mix the parts....you always mix the Micro into the water first. I always add the Micro to the water and stir well, then add the Bloom. If I was using Grow it wld go last for me. Jmo.

probably very late but i hear if you only use bloom they will stop vertical growth sooner than if you gave them adequete N etc. i feed veg nutes till vertical growth slows/stops then switch over. when they show first pistils its just preflower so theyre still going through veg for quite a while after that.
