Timely and much easier for all.

“NO” Nutes for a month, for now is my best answer.

Answering the support ticket will speed your knowledge journey, too.

What soil are you using a lot of them come loaded with nutrients already. Fox farms happy frog will feed your plant for 4-5 weeks Fox farms ocean forest will feed your plant for 5-6 weeks.

@Shaggy2431 ph for Promix will run from 5.8 to 6.2. I vary my feedings a bit in that range. I also check runoff ph and ppms every month to make sure they are eating properly. Promix has no nutes, so you can start feeding when your girls get their first true leaves. I would start them out at around 100 to 150 ppm at first and work up as they grow and need more. I start my Promix feeds with bloom nutes the first two weeks, the higher P and K help with root development, then switch to high N grow formula. (I use Lotus nutes most grows, but use Jacks occasionally too). They stay on that until second week of flower, then switch to full bloom nutes.

Not everybody has the same soil?
Commercial growers?

Can you measure LUX?
HLG.COM has conversion routines if you have you light specs or UT383-BT.
Some use phones, but mine never read correctly.
DLI For growing

Temp makes big difference.
Lighting does too.
