How often do you feed your soil?
Hey i'm growing in soil b/c of some bad experiences with hydro dwc. I'd like to know how often do people feed their soil? I'm using techna flora liquid nutrients. They recommend feed, water, water, feed but is that too much?
nope sounds about perfect.
thats the same schedule i use . water water feed . and i water usually every other sometimes every 3rd day
so i would say i feed with nutes about 1 time a week
and i should also add that i use no nutes until the plants have 4 nodes then i start 1/4 strength for a few feedings then 1/2 strength and build up to full strength
It really depends on whats IN your soil. I would Highly recommend getting a neutral medium, PromixHP, sunshine mix #4 both are great, they are actually soilless dirt mediums so they require nutrients always. You just feed them hydro nutes, every feeding.
With a neutral medium you wont get your plants burnt by the nutes in the soil, and when you want to flush you actually can.
I mix my own special blend into my dirt before planting and then I feed about 4-6 weeks after planting. I then mix up my flowering dirt and transplant into that before I start flowering then add a little bone meal about 4 weeks into flowering and thats it for nutes. But I use composted chicken manure, bone meal, and biotone and they last a lot longer than chemical fert so this probably doesn't help you much.
I grow in coco and I feed every second day and water with pH corrected water with additives alternatively. Thats using the Canna range of feed.
I always keep it moist with distilled.

interesting that you feed every 2nd day jonus and do you use the bud enhancer from the canna range am very interested in that product have heard good things but is very expensive all though you dont use that much?

im interested in what went wrong with hydro? its so ez?
YES u can, but most times its from feeding a nute with a ppm which is to high, and they can get a build up of salt's, but YES it's better than soil..
