    Does it matter how old my plants are? I know your not meant to use nutes for the first 3 weeks. My plants are about 15cm or so high but i dont know their exact age cause i got them off a mates mate and cant find out right now.

    But it also says only to water them with that 1/4 teaspoon per gal every 2 weeks or something. You can dilute it more to use more often. Im using about 2 drops in a 17oz water bottle and watering them 2 times a week along side my normal nutrient schedule which is just good ol fish fert emulsion at 5-1-1. :hump:

    Do not listen to this guy. He obviously doesn't know what he is talking about.

    You should only use it when the plants are going through planned or unplanned stress. ST is good for starting seeds, helping clones root and survive, sometimes if your plants are getting heat stressed , or have other issues going on you can use it.

    You do not need to use ST more than 2-4 times per grow. If you want to give your plants a carb boost use molasses.

    1 drop per gallon...if your plants are doing terrible for some reason use 2 drops per gallon. That's it.

    Shame :peace:

    Also do not use st when flowering, your buds will not be dense if you do.:peace:

    Do you have any kind of reasoning or scientific evidence behind this or serious personal experience. Just curious because I have never heard this before. I have heard a lot of people on this site say that they use it every watering and no one has said anything about cutting it off during flowering.

    I use it every time I water too, the guy at the local hydro store recomended it to me. It doesn't seem to cause any problems for me, not sure if it really helps though.

    I heard you could use it every watering to. But kushmonster is right dont use it in flower stage, GROWFAQ. But lets get to the bottom of this, How much and how often during veg ??????????? because 1/4 teaspoon (1ml) per gallon is about 14-16 drops.. And I just water mine with about 8 drops per gallon. hope there gonna be OK

    ive heard that it prolongs the flower cycle.

    i use it (1-2 drops gal) while in veg, when i remember.

    i really couldn't say how/whether it may have helped since ive used it from the start
    but my girls look happy enough

    There is no reason to use it every water. That is complete overkill IMHO.

    I think ill use 4-6 drops per gallon it every 3rd watering :) and 16 drops per gallon when I tranplats or plant is in stress. And then for sprouts and clones mmm 2-4 drops per gall.. dont ask me how I came up with theses number just seem good to me after doing all this research about ST

    good for use on rooted clones: drop or two per 1 gal./3.8 liters
    good for use on Mothers: 1/4 teaspoon per 1 gal. about a week before
    cutting clones, and again about a week after. IMHO

    hey Kush I wasn't disagreeing with you I just hadn't heard that before. I since have read it in the growfaq and had several people back you up on here. Thanks for bringing this to my attention, and no I won't be using it through the entire grow. :blsmoke:

    2 drops per 17oz is the same as (1/4 teaspoon) per gallon
    So you use that much every watering?? cause I thought you said only use that much every 2 weeks.

    Ya this is my first time using the ST, so ive only been using it about once a week, 2 drops per water bottle. Hopefully this with the fish emulsion and liquid kelp gives my babies all the nutrients they need. =) gl
