    OH, ok. I don't use the powders. I use the Flora series liquid.

    They have a nutrient calculator on their site that I use, but there's no option for the Maxi line.

    Here's the link anyway:

    GENERAL HYDROPONICS

    I do use Koolbloom though and I say if you have the liquid start by adding 1/2 teaspoon per gallon when you put them into flower. Then 1 teaspoon per gallon once they start flowering up until it's time to leech.

    Hope this helps.

    Koolbloom is an enhancement meant to be added during flowering. It is very high in in P and K levels (the liquid I use is NPK 0-10-10) which the plants use to produce flowers. If you have it use it.

    Yes, add it to your mix. It's an addative. But not more than 1 teaspoon per gallon unless you want to experiment. I'm sticking with GH's feeding schedule and having great results.

    I'm just gonna stick with the liquid throughout and see what happens. I honestly think they're just trying to gouge me with the powder suggestions.

    Since the start of flowering I've been using GH Flora Micro/Bloom (Lucas Formula) with Liquid KoolBloom, Purple Maxx Snow Storm, Sugar Daddy, and Hygrozyme. For the last week of nutes before the flush I'm reducing nute load by 50% and swapping out Gravity for the Purple Maxx. Then I'm flushing with RO and Clearx to start.

    Sounds like a good soup, Beverly.

    Like already said, KoolBloom is a PK booster, and the powder is to be used in the second half of flowering. I've used the powder for years, and when the liquid came out I decided that it was not required. The powder is cheaper too, and use only 1/4 teaspoon per gallon, and you have to cut back on the basic salts when you add it too. Even doing that will usually result in brown leaf tips, just the very tip turns brown and I know the plant is happy.

    HTH :mrgreen:

    I will just use the powder then unless the liquid is there for cheap. So what do you mean cut back on basic salts, I dont do anything but change the nutrients.
