    how many weeks have you been on 12/12 , if your 2 wks into the 12/12 cycle i would stop using veg and start with your flower nute, i use plant magic and always had good results, also i do use super vit but not sure if this has made a difference as have never experimented with not using it! have you gave your plants a flush at all...

    just into second week and have only fed it nutes once during that 2 weeks. give the plant a flush every month or so and have been quite using the fert sparingly, never had dodgy leaves or anything bad happen, will get down my local grow shop and see what the dude behind the counter recommends, want an organic nute for flowering if possible. thanks for the reply btw.

    ok, got to the shop and got some stuff called bio bloom, says on the bottle to use every feed, which doesnt sound right to me. The mixture is 2.0 - 6.0 - 3.5 that seems about right, right?

    im planning on 8 week but i supppose its up to the plant eh. strain is nemesis feminised. have mixed 1 x 5ml teaspoon into 2 litres of water so 2.5ml a litre. plant is in soil under a 250w red spectrum 8u bulb. got about 20 different flowering sites and plant is 2ft 4" tall, expecting it to grow to around 4ft from what i have read about it but that seems optimistic looking at it now.

    yeah m8 id say 2.5 ml would be a better start and see how it goes you should every other water but if it tell you to use every water then try it, if you get a bad reaction then just flush the soil with water m8, 3x the ltr pot of water. I wouldn't be surprised if it got to 4ft tall my white widow bigbud was a bit shorter than that and it grew loads through the flower stage. Are you using molasses with you feed or anything else in conjunction with your flower nute...

    nothing extra going in, asked the bloke at theshop yesterday about them and he said if it is showing signs of weakness then mollasses would be a good idea, think i will just give it the feed every other water and see how it goes for now. thanks.

    It is best to give veg nutes which has a high N for at least l0 days to avoid N deficiency. After that you can give blooming nutrients for your flowering plants. Advanced nutrients has a lot of hydroponic products check it out for good blooming products for your plants.
