    I'm day 52 flower. Small closet 5 plant grow. I'm in coco and pearlite 60/40. First coco grow and doing alright with GH Flora series and the cali magic. Coming into end of week 8 and have concerns about the nitro in the micro. I've given up the green bloom of the series and kind of following the lucas formula to some sorts. But I'm at stack and pack time and the nitro in the flora micro concerns me. Don't see a need for the micro @ 5-0-1. The grow has 2-1-6. Bloom 0-5-4. I'd rather mix the grow and bloom, or just the bloom, but can I leave out the micro in the mix? I'm way out of veg for a heavy hitting 5 of nitro flora micro introduces. Or is the micro a base that has to be present for the others of the series to work....First hydro grow in coco and GH nutes. I'm still gaining height in week seven. Not much but another inch a week. So my final question, is GH Flora Micro needed for the mix, of will lock out occur if not used. No opinions please, have you ever left the micro out of the 3 mix? Thanks growers for your information on this. Some pretty girls are needing some real time info.

    The 6/9ml of Micro/Bloom (H3ads modified Lucas) works very well from star to finnish. Lots use it.

    I'm not having any issues with my feeding mix my plants are spot on for week 8, and I meant I stopped using the green flora gro not bloom a month or so ago. My issue is the nitrogen in the flora micro. It seems real heavy this late in the grow. Does the micro have to be used to activate the flora bloom? Or can I PPM the feeding with all bloom all by itself with no flora micro? Or am I just being paranoid about the excessive nitrogen. Couple weeks left for final stack of the buds. Looking for P not N. I'd download some pics but I tried and was denied.

    Well im not scientific, but the Micro has trace elements the plant needs or it wouldn't exist. Also if it was too much N, people wouldn't love the ratio XD leaves get yellow and die/fall off close to harvest anyways. Let it do its thing and you'll know how to tweak it next time if you don't like it.

    I'm over thinking this way to much. Next num nums for the girls is a flora bloom feeding, all by itself. Being in coco I need to feed these hookers daily by hand, well hand sprayer. One big lady eats 2L a day. She's 8oz for sure. Just new to coco and the hydro diet. It's working nice. But the nitro, it's usually 1 this late in heavy flower, if at all.

    I didn’t want to make a new thread but wanted some insight as I’m also using the same nutrients in coco 60/40 I’m at Day 17 from seed I have been using this nutrient schedule but i have noticed that a lot of people ditch the flora grow during flowering. Why? I’m a fairly new to the scene and am growing GG#4 these are two of them but they all fairly look the same.

    The golden rule in second stage flower, when the girls stop stretch and growing feeder leaves comes to and end, nitrogen is a no no. The nitro is high in micro, it's even higher than the actual flora gro. GH flora sieries is not aimed at cannabis. Never was. It needs to be tweeked to adapt. It's doing a killer job in my little grow. It's less expensive at doable to the young in the game of growers. Your girls are beautiful. Be carefull on the ppm. GH has a very high ppm used as directed. Your babies only need a taste. But they'll let you know. I have 3 Black Lab 90/10 sativa/indy at day 14. Heading outdoors for sure. This is my first hydro grow at week 9 flower and it's a serious pain in the ass if your serious about your grow. They drink like me on a Saturday night. Going drip mist rings on a timer next grow. All good fortune in your future grow. Peace my friend. Tried to post pics, no go. this site no like me. Peace

    It is not "the golden rule", it's just something you made up. Your plants need nitrogen all the way up until harvest. Seriously, this is the blind leading the blind.

    So there is a pulse on riu. True what you say. But N is a small base in the end. Fade to P. That's your destiny. Peace.

    N is still the most important macro nutrient. Even after increasing P, N should still be MUCH higher.
