Has anyone ever used FoxFarm's Tiger Boom? If so, any good?
It is the best... it will burn so use less
It should be used with Fox Farm Big Bloom at the same time they work together.
Yes I used them both together it works great. I suggest using the tiger bloom in your water then balance the ph , then add big bloom. You see the big bloom is dark dingy brown, and it makes it almost imposible to get a ph reading with dyes.
i have some. i don't know how to use it properly. i burn my plants with it. i will save it for my outdoor.
i follow this chart and have no problem with nute burn
hope this helps
I'm with BigMike on this one. I use the entire foxfarm line up. I use atleast what the chart says, and if I'm using co2, I double it.
Never had a problem, but I see two posters are complaining of burning while using it, I've heard these complaints before too, and I believe that different strains are going to have subtle differences between there appetites.
yeah and to piggy back on what vid is saying, it is also important to balance the ph of your water. I also used mollases and co2. And I too follow the chart. Journaling what you do and when you do it helps to keep your watering consistent and easy. At least it was for me. Perhaps those that are getting burn are not balancing water , and are not consistant with their feedings.
I dont know , all I know is I love the foxfarm line it works great for me!
i NEVER complained. i clearly stated i did not know how to use it. i am an idiot not a whiner.
i did not do it...just trying to help with the chart....
I'm sorry Fdd, complained was a bad choice of words. Perhap "mentioned" would be a better choice of words.
more like "fair warning".
hmmm am I loaded or did this just get dramatic? Man I harvested two days ago, and I have been nice and high ever scince. Man this was an awesome first grow.
Anyways I forgot what I was going to say...............lol see you all later~
if you harvested 2 days ago how you smoking as you need at least a week to dry the buds to be dry enough to smoke and a month to cure lol anyways...I use the Fox Farm line in my aero grows.I use Big Bloom, Tiger Bloom , and Grow Big.The 3 actual get used together when using the Fox Farm feeding chart you need to use.I also use co2 injections and up the dosage and like to keep my ppm around 1500 when coming into flowering.I also add Bontincare Sweet during flowering. I have never burnt a plant with Fox Farm but have with General Hydroponics dry nutrients.I will be adding Humbolt Count additive to the mix next round to harden buds and it forces purple on most strains.
sorry correction I harvested last saturday and was ready to smoke on wendsday.........................
yes I too dabled with the humboldt stuff but I was afraid of burning but hte two plants I experimented on seemed to be tighter buds , but I saw no purple and these clones were a purple strain.
also sorry about the mispoken truth about my harvest I was off like a week, anyways you get the idea, I am baked!
I have a question about the Foxfarm chart. It suggests feeding every other watering. Can you mix the two together into one gallon, meaning take one gallon of water and put 2 tablespoons of Tiger and 1 tbl. of Big? or do they need to be put into separate containers?
I mixed all nutes in one container myself.................
you mix like the chart says to.If you have 1 gallon of water and its says add grow big and tiger bloom you mix the correct amount of grow big in the gallon then the correct amount of tiger bllom into that gallon then adjust the ph and check the ppm to make sure it stayed in the range.Remember plain water starts with a ppm usually aroun 400-1000 ppm so deduct that to find the actual nutrient ppm when checking before giving to your plants.
