    Will this do me any good during flowering? Cuz I put my plants in 12/12 straight away... if this isnt any good then im not using anything. no hydro shops here and not a fan of ordering online.

    I use MG 15-30-15 for flowering, but only a little mixed with other ferts. If you use just that, be real careful of the ph, as I think it drops to 4 or something after its added. Baking Soda can help bring it up. And I wouldn't go any higher than half strength.

    Yeah, I think 1 tsp to a gallon brings the ec up to about .8, but be careful of the ph, for real. Mix in some of the 20-20-20 nursery select MG, maybe 1/4 to 1/2 tsp a gallon. It helps stabilize the ph a little.

    yeah i used mg all purpose in my last grow in really light doses.me being a noob didnt even consider that it affected the ph like that. i am lookin back thinkin maybe it gave me some ph problems. could that have led to a lockout?

    Put that shit back on 24 hour lighting.

    12 hours is for flowering, you cant flower as soon as it sprouts unless its an autoflowering strain.

    Absolutely. Mg, N, I've seen it all. The first time I got a ph meter and tested the runoff the ec was like 5 and the ph was around 4. The only reason they were doing ok was the extreme over fert problem was combatting the lockout, I presume. Or they were some tough bitches.

    Hell yeah!! I regularly flush my pots with ph 10 or higher water to keep my ph in range. These ferts keep on dragging me down!

    Miracle Gro ferts work very well as long as you do not over do it....less is more; 3/4 to 1 tsp per gallon is highest dose for vigorous plants.

    I like Miracle Gro Tomato for vegging ganja. It has Magnesium, and I have never had any PH problems with it.( I use a generous amount of dolomite lime in my soil blend)

    For the flowering cycle I like the Bloom Booster.

    These products work really well.

    You should be able to find these at Walmart or Home Depot or Loews type stores
    I would still be using the MG if I did not discover Jack's Classic a while ago.
