1st off I'm still learning.. but had great success using the 3 part Gen.Hyd.series also I Quickly learned about nutrient burn in my first grow by using the labels recommendations...starting out 1/4 strength to 1/2 is good..The website for GH has nice feeding schedules. Make sure its specific to your grow.(photo12vs photo18)
Autos too.
Mix with water Red First then Green 2nd and Pink 3rd.
You may Need--Cal/mag-- perhaps if running led lights and depending on your water source.
Whats your base medium? Soil? Coco?

I grow in Fox Farm soil and I use to use the General Organics line but recently switched to the General Hydroponics Flora Series. I use all 3 of the Flora series and CALiMAGic but you may not always need the CALiMAGic, I don’t use anything else and have great success. Always mix the Micro first.

If it's your first time using then don't use full strength.
Here is a good lower strength feed chart for the Flora series with CALiMAGic.
You can veg and flower longer then the chart shows, you can see where it stays the same after a couple weeks so you would just stay on that same dose until your ready for the next stage.

be prepared for some ph swings running RO, 4 stage even. What's the water source like before the RO system?

I'm waiting on a ph meter and ppm to come in the mail. But I know its hard water to start. If anything I can get distilled water but I was hoping to use the ro system.

I use my tap water filtered through a Zero Water filter pitcher. I don't test the ph or ec (ppm) of my water, just mix my nutrients and water my plants. Been doing this for years and never had a problem. Just don't be careless with nutrients.

Nothing at all wrong with it. Just issues you need to be aware of. Lack of buffers is the term used I believe

Where I live the well water is very alkaline. I ran into this issue growing all organic caused lockout and I almost lost my plants. That's why I got the ro filters.
