  1. brothers & sisters,
    I plan on mixing 5ml of fertilizer (Schultz bloom builder 5-30-5) in 8 litres of water (2 gallons). The plants are in the soil and are 3 months old. It's my first feeding and I want to avoid a burn so I purposely using a low dosage.
    How much of water+fertilizer mix should each plant receive, 1/2gallon, 1 gallon.2 gallons etc....

    if first feeding use 1/2 strenght nutes to 1 gallon of water increase after the 4th week to full nutes if you want (can use 1/23 stenght thru entire gor ( when it cokes to nutes "Less is best)
  8. What size container are they in?? I give my girls anywhere from 12-20 fluid oz of water or feed each time,they are in 1 gallon pots.

  9. hi kana,
    these ladies are in the ground, 3 months old approx 3ft tall
    soil +perlite mix
  10. Not sure I'd start with a gallon per plant,check daily and get a better feel for how much is needed and how often,not sure really but that's where I'd start at...

  14. 3’ tall plants that are in the ground. I would suggest giving each of them at least a gallon. Maybe even 2 gallons per feeding. Depending on how fast they soak it up.

  15. one gallon per plant at 1/4 fert strength?
  16. In the ground I would go at least 1/2 strength nutes if not full..maybe not every watering though.
  17. fertilizer instructions as per package state 20ml mix into 7 liters of the ground 10ml should be ok?
