    Ok guys so I would like to know when i should start adding nutes to my girls one is seed and other is clone both are in roots 707 but will be going into ffof next transplant.so should I wait to give them nutes after they are in ffof and have used up all the nutes in that soil so they don't burn or is it ok to start feeding them now and keep feeding even after they go in ffof.i plan on transplanting one more time then on to there final homes 15 gal pots I have the entire fox farm nutes line as well as molasses and calmag here's a pix of them now never having fed them nutes View attachment 20170404_080235.jpg View attachment 20170404_080257.jpg I don't want to feed them then have to stop because they are in ffof which already has nutes in it.

    They look kinda hungry to me. I would be feeding them at this point. I always start out using a quarter of the recommended dose.

    I would have started feeding a LONGTIME ago, but i dont use your soil so maybe someone familiar with the soil you are using would be best to hear from.

    Hi! Good looking plants, they do look however as if they would appreciate some food at this stage :) I would say 1/2 strength

    Thank you all for your replies my thoughts were to start feeding as well just didn't know if I should so I will start next watering thank you guys.also when I transplant into fox farm ocean forrest soil should I continue to feed them nutes even though ffof soil has a lot of nutes in it already?

    My understanding is that when you transplant, you should not feed them right away because of the shock of transplanting. If those were mine, I'd give them a light feeding to give them some vigor, then the transplant soon. You have a lot of time before they are outdoors. I suspect they will be monsters by then and Godzilla-like by harvest.

    Should be giving them veg nutes instead of bloom. Sounds weird that the plant from seed reacted so fast and so poorly to a light dose. Is there a pic of the droopy seed plant?

    Also the fox farm feeding schedule calls for big bloom first [​IMG]

    Both your plants look pretty good. I even think the seed plant looks healthier. It is darker green. I have not used fox farm but I am sure if you follow the schedule you will get good results. It wouldn't be so popular if it didn't work well. You will do well. You worry about your plants like I do. I kind of obsess. Good work so far.
