    Bone meal has a high P so that is used during flowering.Blood meal has a high N so that is used during the vegatative stage

    I read some where about a soil mixture mixing Blood meal and Bone meal. But will that make it flower at the wrong time? Cause ur mixing booth in the soil at the beginning of the grow. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    No not at all, one of the biggest factors on when the plant start to flower is your light times. The plant actually needs both but just in different levels at different times in its life.

    But now I dont actually know what a P over load would do... most likely just burn it or screw up your Ph levels.

    If you want to use bone/blood meal you really need to mix it into the soil and let it sit for a few weeks so it becomes available to the plant. You shouldnt have problems with burning and mix in lime to buffer PH.
