Hey all, im currently finishing up my grow with about 3 weeks left and recently ran out of my bontanicare feeder and had some fox farms big bloom. Big Bloom doesnt have much stuff in it and it said to use 1/2 cup/gallon...so i did. The next feed which was about 3 days later i gave it a cup of big bloom/gallon. That time i gave them it the soil clumped up real bad and the water pretty much stayed on the top until i poked holes in the soil to let it drain to the bottom. Now this morning i am noticing my haze plant looking a little droopy which it has never done before. Could this be a problem from using too much big bloom? Any suggestions or ideas on what to do?

I would def back off on the Big Bloom. What kind of soil are you using? Too much nutrients will cause your leaves to burn, not droop. From what ive heard it is impossible to burn plants with Big Bloom.

I posted the feeding schedule in your other thread aBroham....way overdosed....there are 16 tbs in a cup. I believe it was 2 tbs a gallon for feeding so you over fed by 8 times...:doh:

I wld get to flushing if you have not already done so.

1/2 cup/gallon...so i did
i gave it a cup of big bloom/gallon
HOLY CRAP!!!! what feeding schedule do you have?!?!?!?!
It is organic compounds in it, but it's still liquid. You are putting WAY too much in. Don't care what schedule says what. That's too much.
I do about 2 Tablespoons per gallon. and use the every feeding.
I use it as a micro organism booster...along with mollassas tea.
To fix def. I add some Grow big. Tiger Bloom I just gave away...didn't see much use in it if you have a good soil mix.
Key is to have perfect PH'd water BEFORE adding it.
Never EVER mix grow big and big bloom together...it will funk a whole bunch up.

Not sure but I think he means together together.....kinda like GH 3 part. You never mix one with the other. Each part goes into the water first.....micro always goes in first gets stirred good then each other part goes into the water one a time with a good stirring in between. If you were to mix the different parts with each other and then into the water you hve not done your plants any favors as it mucks the nutes up.

Big Bloom won't hurt your plants. You could drink the stuff yourself--it's nothing but a virtual tea.

This is how your water should look like I got mine in early flowering about a week and a half, and this is just half a gallon water about 60 fl oz , got 2 gallon pots.
I’ll also be adding a pic of my 2 babies when they wake up so you can see them in the present lol

Almost forgot... it has open sesame in it along with grow big,tiger bloom,big bloom,kelp me kelp you, What I do is put the 2 trace minerals grow big and tiger bloom then I put the kelp, then I PH balance the water to 7.0 and add big bloom then open sesame, it should lower it to 6.8 6.7, and of course whenever I add I shake and mix real good before adding another Nute I make sure it’s mixed. I also don’t pour all the water out in a hurry and in one spot of the soil like a lot of peeps do lol.. makes holes I give it proportions in each quarter of the soil and a little near stalk.
