    Default How to feed in soil?

    Hello,

    I'm growing two plants on organic soil from my local gardening store, mixed with perlite to help with aeration and drainage. As the soil has nutrients in it already, will I ever need to add top feeds or mix some organic ammendments to the soil when transplanting? I was hoping the soil alone would get me to flowering at least, since I transplant 3 times before flowering, ending with a 5 gallon pot. Should I mix ammendements whenever I transplant? Should I just top feed with worm castings, bat guano or other organic fertilizers when I get to flower? Or should I not feed at all since the soil has already nutes in it?
    Sorry if this seems like a dumb question or anything, its my first grow and I really don't wanna use liquid nutes.

    Thank you!

    I grow in Organic, and I never do nothing but water until later flower, than use some PK to finish out last month of flowering.

    What kind of PK do you use? Liquid or dry ammendments?

    Do you use the recommended dose? I'll take a look into it, and if I decide to administer GH Bloom, I'm thinkin on starting at 1/2 recommended dose.
    Thanks for the reply, really appreciate it

    Yes 5ml to one gallon of water, but I think Half that would do better. Depends on the Plant. I have one that likes 5ml and one that thinks it is over kill. So smart to start out half like you say.

    Might aswell order a micro and grow just in case they need some feeding in veg. You feed once a week or every other watering?

    My plant on the right seems to want more, and the one on the left seems to be happy with 2 1/2 ml.

    They look stunning. They're autos right? I'm growing photos, so they might need some reinforcement of feeding before flower, I'll see how it goes. Guess the PK feeding depends on the plant itself, but thanks for the advice.
    What strains are those?

    No those are Photo's, Day 56 of 12 12 flip. One on the Right is A White Widow Max, and the one on the left is A OGKZ, I think that stands for OG Hush and zittiles, or something like that.

    Here is A top shot. The WWM has 22 of those bigger cola's, just can't see but half of them, for all the leaves. These have more leaves than I have ever seen. I think it is because I did A HST on them, and every time I cut the fan leaves off they came back double. and more. lol There tons of little cola's under all those leaves also. I show you all of them when I harvest and trim the leaves off, I think you will be surpise. lol

    Awesome, I'll be for sure waiting on it. You only HST? No LST? What type of HST? I'm planning on topping mine and start to LST in a week or two.

    Every time I flim them, I cut off all there fan leaves, and I also Super Crop them. It is the first time I have ever done High stress Training. I don't know if I will ever do it again. Except the Super Crop part. I will wait and see what kind of weight I get first. I might do it again.

    Perfect advice,especially regarding veg.
    There is nothing wrong feeding a low dosage of nutes in veg but soil dependent. Many slate Bio bizz light mix but just grew 2 plants (1 main/1 small pot) and never burned a tip of a leave nor any yellowing.

    nutes used,
    chilli focus 1/4 strength veg, 1/2 strength flower
    PK 1st 2 weeks of flower and Cana boost all flower - again half dose

    Keep things reserved like George states and very much doubt any issues at all. Throwing bags of nutes at plants might seem like a good idea but does more harm.

    Thanks for all the info. Forgot to ask though, what soil do you actually use? I'm using soil from my local gardening store, but I'm looking for something better for my next grow.
