Wud up Farmers, I just bought some MaxiGro and I just wanna know people's opinions. I use to use Fox Farm Grow Big 6-4-4, NPK ratio is basically 2-1.5-1.5, which IMO is an NPK ratio I don't like. Maxi is 10-5-14 so the ratio is 2-1-2.4 which I think is alot better. Now thats not the elemental ratio, but its still a good way to compare fertilizers. I also have GH Liquid KoolBloom which is 0-10-10 so I was thinking about using MaxiGro from seedling to harvest while adjusting the amount per gallon based on the stage of growth and also adding KoolBloom as a PK boost when needed. Has anyone ever done this or something similar?? I would also appreciate anyones advice and/or opinion on this nutrient regime on whether it would work good or not, thanks for any responses in advance.
P.S. I grow in soil and 100% perlite hempy's under a 600w HPS.
My girls get tested for steroids because they grow so strong from Maxi nutes just like baseball players.
The Maxi Nutes are powerful!! So I literally use maybe 1/8th of recommended dosage and even less if they are young. I sprout my seedlings in an aerogarden in my kitchen now before I move them either outside or in the tent. In the aerogarden I just use a sprinkle of MaxiGrow. I used to sprout them in another tent with a T5 in either pellets or rockwool. But my aerogarden is easy and I guess that makes me a cheater.
MaxiGro is one and done for cannabis in veg and then I switch to MaxiBloom when I start to preflower. I used FF TRIO, Flora series, and humboldts Secret prior to this.
I experiment a lot and the Maxi nutes are the easiest with the most value for the money. I also start with Armor Si, then CalMag, then MaxiGro or MaxiBloom then any carbohydrates. I UNDERFEED them by a big margin and gradually bump it up. I have never used more than 1/4 dosage in DWC 5 gallon buckets. At veg and seedling I have a ppm of around 800-900 and for that to read I use such a small amount.
My autos grow massive inside.
They are able to keep up with the autos outside who are in happy frog but they have the Sun to kick it with.
The girls outside used to point and laugh at the girls who lived inside cause they werent as developed as the sunny squad saying things like " Hahahaaaha Hey Tent Girls, the grass is jealous! Nice Peas! Hahahaha" They are such bullies. They are eating their words now.
This is "Harriet" in the picture below (OG Kush Autoflower) she just turned 6 weeks and I probably stunted her because she was subjected to many light experiments and got an indoor sunburn. I only fed her once. Don't laugh at my DIY bucket. Maybe I am a punk and that is small lmao.
oh my god I am lame I cannot upload photo...
There we go...I have a HPS and an LED combo going on all leaves are vibrant green. Its full of crystals and I hacked her up pretty bad the other day cause I hate popcorn buds.
