How much Fox Farms nutrients do I feed to my marijuana plants? (in soil)
Question: How much Fox Farms nutrients do I feed to my marijuana plants?
So I have the Fox Farms growing nutrient trio for soil-based plants.
I was wondering how much to feed to my plants which have been in the vegestative stage for about a week now. My plants are in small plant pots for individual plants so I’m not sure how much to use and how.
Do I mix all three nutrients in one container or do I add one at a time?
Answer: In soil, you can usually wait for a few weeks before you need to start feeding nutrients, as high quality soil usually has enough nutrients to get your plants started. If you were growing hydroponically, you’d want to start feeding nutrients almost right away.
If you started with quality soil (not dirt you found outside), you probably won’t need to start adding nutrients until your plants are about a month old. Or you can start right away if the soil was low-quality. When you do start with nutrients, here are some guidelines in soil.
Follow the feeding instructions at half strength, but only add nutrients to water with every 2nd or 3rd watering.
Like I said, follow the chart they provide except add the nutrients at half strength, and only every 2nd or 3rd watering. This nutrient line is very strong, and too much at once will burn your plants.
Only raise the strength if your plant is a heavy feeder.
For example, if you notice a lot of lower leaves are turning yellow and falling off (before you reach the last couple of weeks before harvest when that’s normal), then it’s a sign that your plant wants more nutrients. At that point, you may consider raising the dose.
Still, treat the official guidelines as a MAX level of nutrients. Never go above the amounts listed in the feeding schedule or you will burn your plants.
Never mix the nutrients together.
Always add nutrients directly to your water.
And even when you’re giving plants plain water, remember to continue managing your pH or you may get nutrient deficiencies from pH lockout.[Answer inside!] I was wondering how much to feed to my plants which have been in the vegestative stage for about a week now…

so i was reading up on fox farms products and i was interested on buying the trio pack for my next grow, however, the feeding schedules seemed a bit “all over the place” if that even makes sense. Everybody seems to have something different to say about it and yes i realize people have different ways of doing things and plants that react different ways to different things. Im a newbie grower so if somebody could break down this schedule i found on a previous thread at the top of the page for me that’d be great, its a soil schedule btw. question 1) when it says weekly feedings – per gallon, does that mean a gallon at once with the 2tbs big bloom? (im not being serious just pointing out these things aren’t clear) or mix the 2tbs big bloom with the gallon of water at the beginning of week 1 and gradually feed it through out that week?
question 2) when it gets to week two where there are both big bloom and grow big listed for the schedule, is that both the 2tsp grow big AND 2tbs big bloom in the same gallon of water? or are they separate? question 3) i’ve been seeing everybody say for the first 1 or 2 weeks to use quarter strength and half strength of what is listed. please let me know if this is true or if you guys have different ratios that have worked better for you, pretty much just need some clarification on all this! thanks!
