I was just wondering whats so wrong with using any miracle gro product?:confused2: Is it just preference or is ther something in it that will harm the plant
Any soil that has those time released ferts in it like most MG soils is not a good choice for MJ. MJ needs no food for the first 2-3 weeks and then after that needs to be fed on a schedule you can control while also being able to control what it is fed. MG takes these things away from the grower.smokeymcbuds said:

its all about how you water
smokeymcbuds said:ok cool so should i use the plant food once every three times i water should that be good the NPK is 18-18-21
I think the point here is that you should avoid the soil that feeds the plant. YOU should be the one deciding how much of what your plant gets, rather than the plant getting an unknown amount of nutrients every time you water. Read up on some good soil mixtures and use that as your starting medium, not some prenuted dirt from Wal-Mart. Then when the plants are large enough (2-3 weeks) start feeding with something formulated for mj like Fox Farm or General Hydroponics.smokeymcbuds said:ok so when do you think i should use plant foods? It says it only feed for two months. so should i wait till thoose two months are u p to start feeding it nutes.
I have used Miracle Grow fertilizer but not their soil. I would imagine most of us have used the fertilizer when we we first began dabbling in growing Mj. Will it grow MJ? Yes, but once I got more involved with growing and doing more research I found there was better products to use. Did these better products work better? In my opinion yes, my mj is more tasteful, has bigger and harder nugs, better high and alot more trics to them. I would not recommend using mg now but when I started growing back in the day it still grew better mj then what was available around here. Back then I gave them a light feeding every watering and quit using it about a month before harvest to rid it of excess nitrogen. The grows I used it on was my outdoor grows never on my indoor grows, if that means anything.smokeymcbuds said:

Hamster Lewis said:Pretty sure there is like 7 different types of MG soil that comes in "green bags"... I use MG soil in a green bag but it is MG Seed Starting Soil and doesn't hve all that time released fert crap in it. It's the only one I will use because I want to control as much of the nutrients they get as possible. Jmo
