    Humbodlt Honey ES....when do i use this? in veg flower or both?


    i am using cuttings in FFOF soil which has nutes in it for up to 30 days, should i not use any nutes for 30 days during veg?

    You don't have to, with that said, if you see a deficiency you can definitely add a little of whatever you're missing. I wouldn't use a set of base nutes for at least three weeks though.

    I wouldn't use the Honey until week one of flowering though, or you risk starving your roots.

    You can do it, it might not hurt anything. but to many microbes can starve your root system, eating the nutrients that would usually be used for the roots. It probably won't happen, but there is that risk.

    Using humboldt honey during veg really only has advantages if you are using mycorrhizal. Then it will feed them and they will establish bigger root systems. So since you are in soil.......humboldt says to use 1ml per gallon from the start......then you move up to 2ml per gallon in week 2&3 of bloom, week 5&6 5ml per gallon, week 7 10ml per gallon, and for final flush week use 15 ml per gallon. But in all honesty....I only used it for one grow because grandmas molasses gives better results. Just my opinion
