    im on my first grow and tomorrow will be week 5 of flower and i started growing 3 strains from seed. i am growing lsd, og kush 18, and white berry. the white berry and lsd are 8 week strains and the og is a 9 week strain. i know those are just guidlines and i need to watch trichomes to know when to harvest. anyway i have some advanced nutrients overdrive that i would like to try but it says to use on weeks 5 and 6 or the last 2 weeks of flower and im trying to figure out when would be best to use this. the plants still look like they have alot of budding to do and im not sure how much they will bud over the next couple weeks "weeks 5 and 6" and dont want to use overdrive if its too early, especially on the og since i guess its suppost to take a week longer. i have been using big bud and a couple other things and know im suppost to stop using bigbud when i use overdrive but i cant figure out if i should use overdrive yet or not. can anyone help me to figure out what i should do? here is some pics that may help you decide. thanks.


    also im growing aero, using the stinkbud system. basically what would you do?

    Thanks.

    on the bottle it says use during weeks 5 or 6 or the last 2 weeks of your flowering phase and the NPK is 1-5-4. i just dont want to use it too late or too early. i dont know how much buds form late in flower because this is my first grow and i dont know if the buds will continue at the pace they are now or explode with growth at some point and i dont know if i will have to harvest early or late. i am trying to harvest half cloudy and half amber trichomes. i also have some final phase i want to try and i figured i would use it at week 8 but then again i half to wait for the trichomes to change and that could be anytime around any or those weeks, so using overdrive is kind of a shot in the dark for me since i dont know these strains. i guess if nothing else i will use overdrive for week 6 and 7. i get a little confused because advanced nutrients calculator says different than what is on the bottle and i figure on a 8 week strain i will want to start flushing at the beginning of week 8.

    also, i tried to rep you but it looks like i already did on another post and it wouldnt let me.

    ok starting monday i will be using overdrive for the 2nd week "last week" you are suppost to use it for the last 2 weeks of flower, but what if my plants are not ready and need another week? i feel this could end up being the case. should i continue overdrive for a 3rd week or what should i do. anyone have any suggestions?

    Hey I would not use it on the OG I say this because I learned the hard way. I found that it doesn't like a lot of feed. I am scared to use it at all now! Can I afford to use it on Chem Dawg? Probably... we'll see I will get back to you on this.
