When you say soil to you mean pro-mix ..it’s made perlite ,peat moss and loam no soil .If not you should there is a couple different company’s out there under grow medium . Advanced nutrients is available on Amazon. They have PH perfect so you do not have to worry about PH pens or PH up or down . Dutch nutrients are good or canna are nice . Fox farm from California has great soil nutrients .

Should add willjay you can make a total organic mix there’s loads of recipe on line .Then you just need water ,when they reach end of bud there all out of nutrients. It depends on strain 8,9 week or longer 12 week Sativa may need additives as a finisher .
There’s bailed organic mixes here ,everything done for you .

Sorry for the delay in replying, I do use Pro Mix Growing medium, just ordered some Fox Farm liquid nutrients trio for soil and some Cal-Mag. Looked at the the Advance nutrient but in the description it stated not for inexperienced growers, since I asked on a forum for advice I’m not the experienced grower. :wink: I use 500 watts to produce 54000 lumins at 64000 K 5 plants in 5 gallon buckets to flower, :) Veg from cuttings in tent :D

Thanks for your help :mrgreen:

Do they recommend cal-mag, I use when growing in coco .never used in pro mix is it your water there?
The fox farm I only use the Chi Cing for finish flower great shit :D If you read a lot of high times early issues with those outdoor California grows there where mostly fox farm nutrients .
Advanced nutrients have different grow level nukes ,problem is there not cheap and there’s 5 ,6 additives.
But to reach high twenty’s in THC there coco nukes I assure you work :D
You use cuttings great ,if you start seeds and grow in big pot of pro mix say 8weeks .Then bud in same pot 8or 9 weeks the medium breaks down and causes your PH to swing .Or nutrient lock . With seeds you always start small pot and then keep transplanting till there the size you wish to start budding. Even with a cutting I will move up to the pot I,m budding in week or two most before I flip light.
With seeds you get what you pay for ,go cheap genetics :( But Great gentics can make any one look good :mrgreen:

The cuttings come from the lollipop trim I do before flower. Just starting 5 new strains :D a gift :mrgreen: that will keep me going for a while. The cal-mag was a recommendation from another friend and I needed more items fore the free shipping. I’m still learning about fertilizer and feel that I could do better with that, I started keeping records and reduced the number of plants to keep a better eye on them, it’s all an experiment but fun. I have made a lot of the rookie mistakes, but know there’s more mistakes to make. :wink: When I went looking for fertilizer I was shocked at the amount of choices and brands, I didn’t want to become a chemist, and did not know which brands I could trust, you helped me with that thanks again. Next I’m going to look at improving the lighting but first I want to see how I can improve with better feeding.
