    Watching the color of your leaves can also be an indication of when to nute. This can be problematic since different strains = different colors. If you learn your plants tho when you see the leaves getting lighter green in color usually means they are hungry and darker when they full. Too dark is not good!

    I feed my plant every 2 weeks. Is that bad? My plant is 8 weeks old and it has some white spots on it. I don't know if
    Its because of lack of nutes.

    8 weeks and every 2 weeks what size are your pots they must be huge to only have to feed you plants 2 or 3 times...best way to do it is to water, feed, water, feed, water...every other watering give them some food...now it may take 4 days in between but thats fine they need more then every 2 weeks

    no one can really tell you how much nutes ur plant needs, you will have to learn to read you ladies ie - if the leafs are turning yellow - increase feed schedule. I f you get burnt tips then miss a feeding schedule. Try not to follow other peoples schedule as they could have different lights, temp, strain etc!

    This post is for future and present gardeners i had a strain in which at week 4 of veg i introduced a 20-20-20 fert with added micronutes(cal, mg) at 1/8th strength in a gallon of water watering fully and she burnt right up Ph of soil was between 6.3-6.8 so it was optimal for nute intake. water was ph'd to 6.5 and had a ppm of 80-90.. its all genetics one strain to another..

    thats stupid so many things to factor. Soil, genetics, water to name a couple. every two weeks in the start is great but after a couple cycles increasing bye 1 week will give it a great boost because it already has the tolerance to it.
