    Hey, am at the end of 2nd week of flowering. Am using a feed schedule of Tea(Ewc, guanokalong 1-10-1, molasses), Biobizz (Fishmix, algamic and bloom) then just plain Ph'd water over the course of 9-10 days then repeat. But am hearing guano's slow release so would i be better top dressing with it rather than making teas?
    :peace:

    Brewing a tea breaks it down faster, better (more effective) than top-dressing.

    Yeah thanks man, I'll def be sticking with the teas, you think top dressing would just be overkill then?

    I use to topdress when I did soil. ... not overkill.

    but too much guano on top can mess with the drainage.

    You will gets better results from top dressing. Guano tea is mainly for deficiency's. For a faster uptake.

    With top dressing you use less. A couple tsp each of n and p guano on top. Where a tea needs 2/3 cup of n guano and 2/3 cup of p guano for 5 gal of water.

    I run top dress now. I had a batch of guano tea go south on me and it almost killed 2 of my babies. I still brew teas I just only top dress with my rainbow mix.
