    Me Personally I Use Miracle Grow And I Always Have Good Outcomes And Harvest Really Depends On The Person And How They Take Care Of The Plant In The Miracle Grow. But My Ques Is Do The Miracle Grow U Have Hav Fertilizer In It Thats What Most These Begginers Forget That U Dont Use Fertilizer On Young Plants Get The Miracle Grow Without The Fertilizer If U Got The Kind With It It Will Work Well Also Get The Miracle Grow All Purpose Plant Food In A Bottle Not The Powder Kind The Liquid Kind It Will Be In A Green bottle With A Yellow Front U Can Get It At Lowes Or Home Depot

    the miracle grow bag says feeds plant up to 3 months so i take it that it does have fertilizer in it. will it still work fine?

    MG moisture control has enough nutes to care for your plant for at least two month, Im using the same thing, at the end of the first month gave both of them a 1/4 recomended strenth of Peters Pro plant food, they did burn alittle. but their fine now.

    I really think you should read to the GROWFAQ for most of your answers, Its all in there, trust me, I read the whole thing then asked questions I couldnt get answers to

    When you are ready to add ferts I like Miracle-Gro Azalea food in a concentrate. I add a scoop of that, a couple teaspoons of black-strap molasses, and a teaspoon of white vinegar to a gallon of tepid water. It is a good acid mix for my water condition. Azalea and a few other plants have the same nutrient requirements as cannabis.

    i am using MG moisture control right now. its my first grow with MG but it has worked great so far. if you are flowering after about a month i would definitly cut it with maybe an organic soil or something with very low nutes in it, probably 50/50.

    The nutes in the moisture control also contain time released nutes, which is why they say will feed up to 3 months, but it probably has too much nitrogen in it by itself if your going to flower that soon.

    you will probably want to go with a 3-4 gallon pot. the general rule of thumb is 1 gallon for every foot of heigth
