Following directions on plant food

So, firstly, thanks for all the knowledge that I have read here!
I finally found a local store that carries EVERYTHING that I have read so much about here. Fox Farm, Happy Frog, Captain jacks, etc… I am thrilled! Obviously I’m not changing medium for my current grow, it seems to be doing ok but will be switching for my indoor grow.
I bought FF big bloom concentrate and am wondering if the 4Tbs per gallon that it recommends is a good number or if it should be toned down?

Random seeds I got that I am learning with

FF feeding schedules are very aggressive and sometimes leads to nute burn. Many will feed at only half of the published schedule.


To add to what Midwest said. When I used fox farms I didn’t really follow the schedule. You will learn to read a plant. If she is light green, she is hungry, dark green she is full :slight_smile:

Thanks @MidwestGuy and @Zee .
I’m always nervous to overdue stuff as it’s my first attempt. :upside_down_face:
I attempted LST today too.
It’s all a learning experience and I’m absolutely enjoying it

I think it is tsp not tbs may want to double check
Plants are looking nice and healthy Good luck

@spankyjr1 thanks, plants are looking good for a first attempt (imo)
I did check that label, it definitely says Tbsp ( spelled out) wich seemed like alot, hence the reason I asked.
Trying too hard, don’t want to burn them up now lol

You are in soil correct?
What week?
my chart directly from FF show’s everything in tsp

@spankyjr1 I am in soil. I’m pretty sure I planted june 6th.
This is the labels (bear with me I’m new lol)

It says the same on my bottle yet the feed chart I posted is for cannabis plants
Let’s ask someone who knows more about using FF nutes what he recommends if he doesn’t mind @MidwestGuy

I feed at about half of the FF schedule. The recommendations are measured in tablespoons. I use a 10ml syringe with a blunt tip needle when I measure.

The published FF schedule is very aggressive and can lead to nute burn. I don’t know many growers who follow the published schedule.

So according to the chart week9 it calls for 3 tsp you would feed 1.5 teaspoons? or 7.5ml?

Yes, that is what I do.
