Thread: John Innes Composts Explained!

    I use Focus tomato food with John Innes No 2 and get not bad results. Do not go by the dosage on the bottle though, it's too strong for canna. Approx 3 weeks after my final re-pot I start feeding at 1ml per litre and work my way up through flower to a maximum of about 2mm per litre. Keep a close eye on the plants, if they start showing signs of nute burn at the very tips of the leaves ease off on the feed, if they look like they can take more, steadily increase it by about 0.25ml per litre, per watering.

    All I know is that John Innes soil is the worst for growing. I's way too hot and I'm constantly fighting with nute burn after re-pots. Never ever will I use anything that contains John Innes again. Fuck that.


    The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world." - Carl Sagan



    "I used to smoke marijuana. But I'll tell you something: I would only smoke it in the late evening. Oh, occasionally the early evening, but usually the late evening - or the mid-evening. Just the early evening, mid-evening and late evening. Occasionally, early afternoon, early mid-afternoon, or perhaps the late-mid-afternoon. Oh, sometimes the early-mid-late-early morning. . . . ...But never at dusk." - Steve Martin

    Cut your feeding down mate. If they are burning then they have to much. Seaweed will counteract the burning but will also slow down growth for a week or 2.

    Flush your pots with water......use 3x the pot size, so if you have a 1ltr pot then you will need 3ltr of water.
