    I am going to have to give your soil recipe/feeding tips a try, Resin. On your thread, I read that the nutes you used were given every third watering, as well. Is that correct?

    You guys have been so helpful to me, and it is awesome to have people I can ask these questions to. Once I get moved, everything is going to be switched to the new soil and nutrients. I want my new beans to grow in style!

    it a continuing and on going process man.... you will always be trying to improve and tweak your garden. Ive been growing for 2.5 yrs and still havent found what is best for me. I am liking the ROOTS ORGANICS greenlite soil mix... it drains super fast and is well amended but does need to be fed once a week with the nutes Im using now. I would love to try Resin's soil mix but living in a 650sq/ft condo with my only closet dedicated to growing i have no space to store all the components and tubs and whatnot to make my own.

    You will figure it out man i went from super crazy feed schedules to super simple.... The neptunes harvest works really well.

    I used too but am a lazy gardener. I've found one repot up from veg pots to flower tends to allow no supplemental feeding during a 4-6 week veg. It comes down to each plant/strain. Some appreciate the extra boost, some don't. Light feeders don't enjoy the hot mix so I back down the blood meal by half or more and feed every 3rd watering instead.

    There ain't no one size fits all once you start adjusting for strain specific characteristics.

    For the Lighter feeders, could I mix an extra gallon of soil into the mix? I would want to fine tune the soil to a happy medium, so I would only have to adjust slightly.

    Would it work the opposite way, with too cool of batch? Just add more of the mix to the top, when it needs it?

    Never found one that it's "too cool" for. It's a pretty hot mix. I won't use it for seedlings or young clones. Those get straight Pro-Mix Mycorrhizae and Neptune's seaweed/fish emulsion until they're ready to veg out.

    So I start the seedlings/clones in a gallon pot with promix only. After three weeks, I could transplant them into two or three gallon pots and veg them for another three weeks in a mix of half super soil/25%promix/25%Perlite.

    They could even get one more transplant into five gallon buckets before going into flower. This would be filled the rest of the way with super soil this time around.

    Would something like this work? In my mind, it would keep the full dose of super soil away from the plant until it needed it in flower. I don't know much about it, so it's just an idea. I know Subcool recommended only putting his super soil on the bottom third to half, of the pot.

    If you do it that way I'd cut the Blood meal by a third or so. Too much N into late flower can force the bud maturation out longer.

    Since I'm always dealing with height problems I put clones in starter pots after they show roots with plain promix for 1-2 weeks (depending on garden schedule). If you keep them fed in a small pot just keep clipping them back and they do fine for much longer. When I have an open garden spot I pick a potted clone and transplant to a 1 gallon veg pot for 3 weeks. Transfer to a two gallon flowering container. Veg one more week to let the plant acclimate to its new home and start flowering. Train-em right and you get a decent lil plant. As in all things, YMMV. But it works for me.

    It sounds rough but its really pretty simple once you get a routine going.

    Yeah, I feel like I am just now getting used to following a nute sched. I keep thinking all of the nutrients are going to instantly burn the plants. I've been getting paranoid!
