I’m ridiculous and a tad OCD and I wouldn’t be able to sleep at night wondering if I was missing out. I’ll dive deeper than I need and you can all watch and laugh and learn but it’s pretty well decided now because I just added it to the budget. $421.86 for nutrients and soil on a single plant grow operation. Some people have gambling problems so life could be worse. There’s plenty of time to hate myself later. I could converted to hydro for that, but I’d be back on soil for the clones. I don’t know that hydro will ever be my thing. What’s done is done. There’s really only one way to go from here so everything is set to work out. Or so I think. Time to shut off the brain. Goodnight! 🤣😆🤪😜😳🤭🤢🤮🥴😁😆
for sure. there's definitely worse habits to have. i've spent way more than i thought i would and am still dropping $$. best wishes on your grow!

I don’t know why I’m so hung up on ocean forest. Everybody else likes mixes and I’m this crazy purist over here. I once dated a woman who couldn’t put a piece of steak and a piece of potato in her mouth and chew. They had to be eaten separately. I feel like I’m being unreasonable with my stubbornness of not mixing soils. 🤣🤣🤣
Ocean Forest is the best blend start to finish, IMO. I wont use anything else until I can make my own soil. Happy Frog, Strawberry Fields, etc have less nutrients and amendments that we want. However, Happy Frog is a great for starting seeds.

Have you tried Recipe 420? I saw it at a slight discount on the FF last year (which for me is around $12-13 for the 1.5cf FFOF and $13-14 for the 2cf Happy Frog). Most of the time I’ve seen in it was around $20-$22 1.5cf, so never tried it. But figured if it’s still cheap this spring I’d give it a try.

I havent heard of it, thanks for the heads up. The ingredients list looks identical to OF, so I would use this as well. Nice find!

Answers are in! Thankfully, Fox Farms support was awesome enough to reply to 3 consecutive emails and responses in one day. I’m just not used to good service. Good for them!

their happy frog nutrient schedule guide is designed to be used with their soil nutrient guide. Chose liquid or dry nutrients. For me, I use liquid nutrients, so that includes:

grow big
Big bloom
Tiger bloom
Cal mag
Kelp me kelp you
Wholly mackerel

and then I think the orange stuff is microbe and root support. They say all of that is meant to be used together and with the rest so tack on:

Boomerang
Kangaroots
Microbe brew
Bembe

and flowers kiss is a foliar spray.

I think I might even forgotten a few things. I did. If you REALLY REALLY REALLY want to maximize everything, the dirty dozen kit includes dry nutrients, to be used at specific times along with your liquid nutrients. Awesome, I know everyone else probably knew all of this, but now I know too. here are the dry Fox farm nutrients:

Open sesame
beastie bloomz
cha ching

and don’t forget to flush! And pick your ow pest management

sledge Hammer Flush
Force of Nature

that’s more than a dirty dozen. I count 16! Wowzers. I had no clue.And I thought going hydro was going to be too expensive and complicated. This is good though. I’m growing as a grower I think. 🤣🤣🤣
If you look at the nutrition facts on the bottles, you will notice a lot of redundancy in them. I don’t think using them all is necessary. I also believe the quantities are different on the bottles then the feeding schedule. The schedule reflects how much when together and the bottles reflect when used individually. That being said, I still use about 80% of them. I flush with water between feedings, no sledgehammer and don’t use the boomerang or the rhize up. I honestly think you can kinda pick and choose what works for you ( outside of grow big, big bloom and tiger bloom) and pay attention to your plants. I grow several strains at a time and noticed some plants can take a ton of nutes and others can be sensitive to them. Then again I’m no pro, just question everything and read a lot.

I uppot from Happy Frog to Ocean Forest after a month, then use the directions on grow big, big bloom and tiger bloom bottles. Watch for gnats, that’s why the frog is happy.
