I have 8 ladies 6 weeks in Strawberry Fields w/o any added nutrients. I have 3 weeks until I 12/12 them. A couple of them are showing the first signs of being hungry and I want some advise of where to hop on the FF feeding schedule so they get exactly what they need in just the right ratios. I figured I'd use the FF trio, but is someone has better more esoteric knowledge of another product line, let me know that too. thanks y'all

I would start out at 50 percent of what the label reads for the schedule period you are in. I have not grown in Strawberry Fields soil. If it is just soil, I would bring the ratio up to 90 to 100 percent of what the label states and do a Feed Water Feed Water program. Meaning you Feed every other watering. This is just my opinion. Your plants look great by the way. Good luck with your grow!!!!!!!!!!

After 6 weeks, 2 of my gorilla glue are starting to yellow at the tips. Something is happening and I dont want to misdiagnose and worse, mistreat, possibly causing damage that could lengthen my veg to correct. If I had started with a different soil that is less saturated with stuff, then I would have already been on the standard feeding schedule. And if I had not started the grow in strawberry fields, I'd be transplanting into Strawberry Fields. The guys at the local garden store are all about it. I went to buy the standard FF soil package (happy frog soil with the standard nutrients that are commonly used in combination. They said use Straw Field (which was a $20 total cost instead of soil+3 different bottles of food+ph meter+ph control kit. So, here I almost 7 weeks later and the ladies have exploded. I have topped many, many times starting at node 4 and been applying daily LST to make them all 10 inch tall and 12 -14 inches in diameter. The amount of fan leaves I've removed just to maintain light in the center of the places should be enough plant growth to use up the nutrients alone. There have been times when I go to bed the plants look bare, and 24 hours later it almost like the leaves had never been removed. This soil is amazing. But, it cant last forever.

My other thought is to transplant again into more Strawberry Fields from the current 5 gal to 7 gal right before I flip them to 12/12. Assuming flowing wilt be at least as productive as veg in this soil, especially since SF is made and marketed by FF as their "flowering soil".

Or, I dont want to do this, but I could flush the soil till its stripped and then start the standard feeding schedule.

Thanks bro,
