Yep and vice versa.. you can use synthetics while going organic, depending on how poten of stuff you are putting in, most you need to do is re-innoculate..
My question to you all is....... Can I change from synthetics to organics during the same grow. I have been vegging 2 plants in 50% coco 50% perlite for 3 months and now there in flower under 2 600w hps + 4 cfl for side lighting.
I really want to swap to organic ferts for the remainder of this grow before I go all organic + aact in my next grow.
Am I defeating the object going organic in flower after using chem ferts in veg or can this be a good thing.
Any info on this would be great
i would do both to be honest, mostly organics in the beginning, then some synthetics towards later flower to really let em swell. feed less and less as they get close to chop, flush if you fear they have salt buildup, but you can feed up to the last day with 1/4 suggested feeding of synthetics, organics can be fed up until the last day too.
yup no reason you cant change it up every week if you wanted to and knew what your were doing lol
or use Super Soil and never use chemical nutes again, only organic amendments in your soil
Dibs on FDD's first blown usable glass....
Actually I'm gonna go ahead and say no. Not if you're concerned at all with yield anyways. Not if you're already in flower with a mix of 50/50 coco perlite. You'd have to add a lot of worm castings or compost or potting soil or something...I mean sure, you can do it, but you'd have a terrible yield.
Growing organically is all about your soil (or soilless mix) and keeping your soil healthy. It would be a less radical shift to have started and ran with organics all of this time, and then jumped into synthetics during flower. But by giving the plant organic nutrients now, I don't think that the plant will be able to utilize them properly. I would probably be more beneficial to keep using your synthetic base nutrients, but give them some teas as well.
Either way, starting off completely organic on your next round is an excellent choice, you'll be happy to have joined the club. Start with a nice soil mix and have fun.
Smart enough to know better. Strong enough to do better.
Because of your Medium, Witch Doctor is 100% correct. It would be such a pain to switch now to organics unless your willing to spend big $$ on 100% organic hydro nutrients that require cleaning your system often and a well scheduled auto feeding that you should just finish out this grow the way your going and then START organic in some nice soil with some teas on your next grow=D. Best of luck on this batch brother.
organics not yielding well is a myth, try adding some bat guano to your water, compost teas every 3 weeks is a good idea as well. use some chem ferts, they're readily available to the plant, organics are taken up slowly.
