so to improve my growing i figured its time to get some real good nutes for flowering. THE BIG BLOOM! most of my growing in the past has gone well, besides for a few times in flowering i experienced the same thing- from week 5-8- i noticed a super slow grow, almost stopped. my last grow was the best yet, but there still was not full dense buds..almost a little stringy, but the potency was there.
this time around i'm convinced to grow some nice dank buds. My germ and veg was good as usual- i have, in the past, used miracle grow nitrogen and its been great, so i have continued to use it. i flushed the soil 2.:1 going into flowering. now, before used these b.s phosphorus pebbles to help flowering, but like i said i didnt have much luck..so finally i gave up on it and now i have the Big Bloom. i want to do this right, so if i end up with the same product in the end i know it is not the nutes..its definitely me!
-----> this is where i start to become unsure. it said to start it off with a half cup per gallon...so i did. My pot has a few cracks and small holes for drainage. it is a 2.5 gallon pot. When i water i used about a half gallon- or a little less- and there was little drainage afterwards. Now i assume that is good right, since the nutes are holding in the soil and there is still little drainage to release backup minerals/nutes? It does not say how often to water with nutes, i was thinking 2 times a week? Am I suppose to flush it only one more time, a week before my harvest, or should i do it twice-in the middle of the flowering cycle and at the end?
As of now my plant has been responding very well, i have made 2 changes to my grow- the co2 boost and now I changed my nutes. i am towards the middle/end of week 2 flowering. there are nice white hairs everywhere, but see no crystals yet.
